New England Fertility Specialists Win "Top Doctors" Award

rmact-fertility-specialists-are-top-doctorsThere’s always a question of balance. What’s tooting your own horn (suitably accompanied by an entire marching band) and what’s simply saying what is going on.  

Let’s go with a balance that leans heavily in favor of what is going on.

What’s going on is that Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) is 100% on it’s game with all five of our board certified reproductive endocrinologists (fertility specialists) rated as Castle Connolly’s top doctors.

All five.

That’s not luck.

That’s not even just hard work.

That’s extraordinary attention to patient care, to caring about every detail about how you are treated when you are in any one of our four offices. That’s surrounding yourself with a team that is devoted to excellent clinical care and pregnancy rates as well as compassion.

Won’t you join us in congratulating all five of our doctors for winning this award? ~ Lisa Rosenthal

All Five RMACT Fertility Specialists Rated “New York Metro Area's Top Doctors”

Based on Peer Review, Castle Connolly is Recognizing Drs. Mark Leondires, Joshua M. Hurwitz, Spencer Richlin, Shaun Williams and Cynthia Murdock for Outstanding Pregnancy Results and Excellence in Fertility Patient Care

NORWALK, CT – Fertility specialists Mark Leondires, MD, Joshua M. Hurwitz, MD, Spencer Richlin, MD, Shaun Williams, MD and Cynthia Murdock, MD, of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT), have been selected as New York Metro Area's Top Doctors.™ Castle Connolly compiles this list based on input from physicians who identify leaders in their respective medical fields and recognize the quality of their highly regarded medical work. It is rare that all of the doctors in any one practice are included in the Top Doctors list. 

“I’m honored that my peers have named me a Top Doctor,” says Dr. Leondires, Medical Director for RMACT. “The infertility field has had significant breakthroughs in the past several years, and it is a privilege to be a part of a practice on the cutting edge of infertility medicine. These treatments, such as Select CCS (Comprehensive Chromosome Screening), bring our patients hope and success at rates that we only dreamed of 10 years ago.” 

Dr. Hurwitz, who is Board Certified in both Reproductive Endocrinology and Obstetrics and Gynecology, adds: “We offer our patients the complete package – outstanding pregnancy rates, advanced medicine, emotional support, nutrition counseling and stress management. Recognitions such as this award for all five of our fertility doctors are a result of the layers of patient care that we provide as a leading fertility practice.” 

Earlier this year, RMACT built a new in vitro fertilization (IVF) laboratory that is the most technologically advanced in Connecticut and one of the most advanced in the country, giving patients access to the latest medical advancements in order to maximize IVF success rates. Beyond the lab, every aspect of the new office was built to elevate the patient experience through soothing décor, privacy and security. It also has more space to grow RMACT’s Integrated Fertility and Wellness (IFW) Program, including acupuncture, nutrition counseling, support groups, Fertile yoga classes and workshops. 

“This distinction is a result of our comprehensive team approach, and acknowledgement that success matters to everyone,” says Dr. Richlin, Surgical Director for RMACT. “We compassionately support our patients every step of the way, and we work hard to offer the most advanced, most thought-out fertility treatments available unique to each individual.”
