Rinku V. Mehta, M.D.
Board Certifications: Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility
“My favorite thing is sharing in the joy and excitement of my patients’ when they hear the heartbeat of their newly conceived baby for the very first time.”
Approach to treatment
“I firmly believe in a personalized approach to patient care which involves seeing my patients at each and every visit. I educate my patients with regards to their cause of infertility and set realistic expectations and goals for fertility treatment. By getting to know my patients and their history thoroughly, I try to formulate the best treatment strategy for them. We always recommend the simplest and least invasive methods first, however if aggressive management is required from the beginning then that is what we will do. My patient’s and I make decisions on their treatment plan together. It is my job as their physician to make sure they fully understand what their options are and create an effective treatment plan that they are comfortable with.”
