CT Fertility Doctor Cynthia Murdock - Why Calm Demeanor Is Helpful
CT Fertility Doctor Cynthia Murdock On Being Calm
Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT)'s fertility doctor Cynthia Murdock, MD is one of the five board certified reproductive endocrinologists that we have on the RMACT team. Dr. Murdock sees patients in each of our four convenient locations: Norwalk, Danbury, Stamford and Trumbull.
When patients speak of Dr. Murdock, the most common term that is used is calm. Her patients, as well as the other physician’s patients, state that she rarely gets rattled or upset. Her calmness, it seems, is infectious, in the best possible way.
When Trying to Conceive and Have a Healthy Pregnancy
Dr. Murdock’s excellent clinical and professional skills are paramount, of course. First, when one is trying to conceive and have a healthy pregnancy, you need the best possible medical care. Dr. Murdock provides that, and has provided that for many years in the state of Connecticut.
Given that her medical, surgical, diagnostic and therapeutic skills are excellent, award winning in fact, why does her demeanor matter? That’s not part of the job description or the skill set you need when you are struggling with infertility.
But isn’t it? Don’t you need someone to count on if the news and results that you are getting back are less than stellar or are outright disappointing? Isn’t it an amazing situation when the physician that you are counting on for clinical skills can also be the human being who calms the situation? How much calmer do we feel when we have a calm physician?
Much calmer. That’s the answer that I hear about Dr. Murdock, over and over again. Her patients tend to be more patient, less anxious, and more able to hear what they need to hear. I see this in Fertile Yoga and hear about this in Ladies Night In, as well as here on the PathtoFertility blog.
She explains things carefully and deliberately. She can find a way to describe even the most complicated procedure or protocol. Her voice is soothing, particularly when delivering bad news, yet she is able to embrace the good news as well. Her particular gift seems to be in giving information and having it be just that. Information. Not bad news. Her patients describe her delivery as comforting.
RMACT's Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists - Complete Disclosure
Complete disclosure. I have a tremendous amount of respect and affection for each and every one of our physicians at RMACT. Dr. Mark Leondires, our Medical Director. Dr. Spencer Richlin, our Surgical Director. Dr. Joshua Hurwitz, Division Director of REI at Danbury Hospital. Dr. Shaun Williams, newest addition to our team of board certified reproductive endocrinologists.
They each have the clinical and professional skills that make them great doctors and that help support the pregnancy rates at RMACT of which we are so proud. And they each have different personalities as well. Isn’t it a pleasure to go to a fertility practice where you can create a custom fit? That’s the beauty of a practice with more than one physician. You build a relationship with the physician that fits best for you.
Without a doubt, any of our fertility doctors can support your quest in becoming pregnant. They all have the medical skills. Like every other human being on earth, they also have personalities. They are each genuine and caring people.
Dr. Murdock’s sub-specialty is calm. Constant, unflappable calm. It’s very reassuring to the patients that she sees. After all, calm is so very encouraging when one is in the midst of emotional chaos, which can often be the case while in the midst of fertility treatment.

Take it as easy as possible today everyone. And please remember, we're here to help.
