"We have a connection with our patients, which motivates us to provide the best fertility care possible. That’s what drives us and I believe it is the secret to achieving our impressive pregnancy rates," says Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director at RMACT.
Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
The complete team of Board Certified reproductive endocrinologists at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) has earned the accolade “Top Doctor.” Moffly Media publishes the list of Top Doctors in Fairfield County in the January/February issues of Fairfield Living, Greenwich, New Canaan-Darien, Westport and Stamford magazines. Dr. Mark Leondires, Dr. Spencer Richlin, Dr. Joshua M. Hurwitz, Dr. Cynthia Murdock and Dr. Shaun Williams have each been chosen by their peers for the 2016 list based on their exceptional infertility patient care and stand-out results.
Moffly Media’s list is compiled by the renowned healthcare research firm Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., which conducts a rigorous, peer-reviewed assessment of local doctors by their peers. Not only is it an honor for an entire practice to be selected for this designation, but each of the doctors have also chosen as a Top Doctor in numerous previous years.
“We are proud that over the past 12 years our fertility team at RMACT has become an integral part of the community,” says Dr. Leondires, Medical Director at RMACT. “We have a connection with our patients, which motivates us to provide the best fertility care possible. That’s what drives us and I believe it is the secret to achieving our impressive pregnancy rates.”
RMACT is a leader in the fertility field with a live birth rate significantly higher for women under 35 with thawed, non-donor cycles; RMACT has a live birth rate of 66% (84/127) as compared to 44% nationally, according to the latest report from the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART). SART, an independent, non-profit organization responsible for gathering, verifying and distributing data from fertility practices nationwide, released its latest report for all U.S.-based in vitro fertilization (IVF) programs. A full list of data for RMACT and other practices is available at http://www.sart.org. Please note a comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because a patient’s medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.
Unlike most fertility practices, RMACT approaches fertility care by treating the whole patient. Before embarking on medically advanced assisted reproductive technologies such as genetic screening and in vitro fertilization (IVF), the RMACT team encourages patients to improve their overall health. Factors such as body mass index (BMI), blood sugar levels and stress or anxiety can affect hormone production and reproductive health. RMACT offers a robust nutrition program, support groups, acupuncture, yoga, emotional support, complimentary classes and counseling – for individuals and couples – through its Integrated Fertility and Wellness Program.
