“Treating infertility is a marathon-like process, patients need to be prepared for the journey and not just a quick sprint.” – Dr. Alexander Kotlyar
Q: WHY DID YOU BECOME A DOCTOR/REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGIST?
A: Medicine requires both an ability for empathy and an appreciation for science, both the known and unknown. For me being a reproductive endocrinologist and reproductive surgeon not only combines these qualities, but also allows one to make an impact that can last for generations.
Q: WHO INSPIRES YOU?
A: It depends on the situation, my family for the most part, my colleagues and mentors for sure, and a little sprinkle of the likes of David Goggins and Johnny Kim.
Q: WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
A: Challenging myself physically and writing anything that can help empower my patients.
Q: WHAT IS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU THAT WOULD SURPRISE MOST PEOPLE?
A: I really enjoy rollercoasters and sky-diving.
Q: DESCRIBE A TIME WHEN YOU WERE INSPIRED BY A PATIENT.
A: Each patient that has been struggling for years to start a family shows the grit and determination that I find immensely inspiring.
Q: WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO HELPING PATIENTS?
A: To give them the best, evidence-based, options and help them make an effective decision at every step of their care.
Q: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
A: Easy-going combined with immense drive and a healthy sense-of-humor
Q: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU?
A: I have a soft-spot for short-hair tabby cats and German shepherds.
