I love taking care of patients. I also enjoy thinking about ways we can improve healthcare delivery and outcomes for women. I get to do these things every day I come to work, and I know the rest of the team I work with is equally dedicated to our patients. Plus, we get to help people become parents. It is truly fulfilling and rewarding.



I entered medicine for an old fashioned reason – to help people and change lives – and my job lets me do that every day. When patients have a good outcome it impacts not only them, but also countless other people, and this truly brings joy to their world. Couples that are not successful are the biggest challenge, and if they know they have received the best support and advice throughout the process, then helping them find comfort is an important task I take seriously.

My ability to provide the best care is only possible because of a large number of co-workers focused on appropriate supportive and compassionate treatment, and working with this group of outstanding employees is a highlight of my job.


Everyday is full of new and exciting adventures for a couple or individual embarking on a sometimes short, sometimes long journey. How neat is it to help them navigate that the highs and lows of the process. That bond is unlike any in medicine, in my opinion. And the team of professionals that I work with provide an ideal environment for patients, bar none.


I love what I do … I help couples have a child and when I do this, I feel I am helping to change and improve the world one small step at a time.

I love what I do because I work within a team of very talented people including well-trained, bright doctors, dedicated nurses, talented ultrasonographers, cutting-edge laboratory technicians, and understanding staff. We all have the goal in mind to help and support our patients who need the best medical care, compassion and resources.

Genetic Counselor

Marisa Andrews, MS, CGC

Clinical Genetic Counselor

My passion for genetic counseling comes from my belief that genetic testing can improve patients’ lives and their medical care.  The field of medical genetics is continuously evolving so it is crucial to provide patients with accurate and balanced information on how genetic testing may be relevant for their individual case.  I am honored to play a role in empowering patients and supporting their decision-making through risk assessment, genetics education, and counseling.  At the end of the day, it is about making the tool of genetic testing work for the patients to achieve their goals.
