Dr. Rinku Mehta
- Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility.

“I firmly believe in a personalized approach to patient care and the importance of patient education. Together we can 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.”
