Dr. Pakrashi is a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist who has a lifelong interest in the mind-body aspect of women’s health.

Dr. Pakrashi specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility, including gynecologic endocrine issues, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis, as well as helping patients overcome infertility with third-party reproduction. During her career, she has published abstracts and papers on topics such as cryopreserving blastocysts, ovarian stimulation for in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, and treating women with PCOS.
