About

Bio

Care Philosophy: As a Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Specialist, I’m aware that we not only provide the latest medical and scientific advancements in fertility treatment to our patients, but we’re helping them to start or grow their families. I aim to provide personalized care and to help guide our patients through the challenges that they face. It’s a great privilege to see many of them achieve their goal of parenthood. About Me: I grew up in Manchester, England, and I graduated from St. George’s Hospital Medical School at the University of London, England, where I also earned my B.S. degree. After moving to the USA in 1997, I completed an Obstetrics and Gynecology internship in New York before going on to residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor. I completed my subspecialty fellowship training in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, before practicing as an Infertility Specialist in the Dallas area for two years. I moved to Washington State in 2007 to join the team at Overlake Reproductive Health. I live in the Redmond area with my wife and four kids - we are blessed with three sons and a daughter.
