We are thrilled to announce that Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director and Partner in Reproductive Endocrinology at Illume Fertility, has received Crain’s Notable Healthcare Leaders Award. Prestigious honorees are notable for their consummate leadership, pioneering accomplishments and ability to adjust to crises.
People often use the terms “reproductive endocrinologist” and “fertility specialist” interchangeably, and it makes sense why many use the latter term so frequently – “fertility specialist” is much easier to rattle off in a conversation than “reproductive endocrinologist.” Unfortunately, though, these two terms are not one and the same and carry major differences that you should be aware of.
We're thrilled to announce that Illume Fertility's physicians have received Castle Connolly Top Doc honors for yet another year! Only the top seven percent of doctors in the United States receive this prestigious award, and honorees are rigorously selected from over 850,000 practicing physicians in the country.
To reflect a renewed focus on patient care and our role as a guiding light on all patients’ fertility journeys, we are announcing a new name: Illume Fertility. Read on to learn what's changing, what's staying the same and why we've chosen to rebrand RMA of Connecticut!
For many years now, our doctors here at RMA of Connecticut have been awarded the great honor of 2021 Top Doc from Castle Connolly. And to be honest, as a past patient and now a coworker who has seen both sides of their work ethic, there has never been a more well-deserved distinction.
Laura Meyer, M.D. has joined our award-winning team of fertility specialists to deliver high quality care to patients in the region. Born and raised in Westchester County, Dr. Meyer graduated magna cum laude from Duke University, and earned her medical degree at the NYU School of Medicine. She continued her medical training at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center, where she completed both her residency in obstetrics and gynecology and fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. During residency, she was appointed Administrative Chief Resident and was the recipient of several honors, including the Distinguished Housestaff Award. Prior to joining RMA of Connecticut, Dr. Meyer was an Assistant Professor at NYU School of Medicine and practiced in Westchester and Fairfield Counties. “RMA of Connecticut is very proud to add Dr. Laura Meyer to our award-winning team,” says Dr. Mark Leondires, Medical Director and Founder of RMA of Connecticut. “Dr. Meyer’s experience, coupled with her notable achievements and deep connection to the Westchester and Fairfield County communities will add tremendous value to our RMA of Connecticut team. We are thrilled that she has joined our team to continue to help our patients grow their families.” Dr. Meyer is experienced in ovulation induction, in vitro fertilization, preimplantation genetic testing, egg freezing, fertility preservation for cancer patients, recurrent pregnancy loss, and third party reproduction. She is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. She is fluent in Spanish. “I am honored to join the talented team at RMA of Connecticut, where I look forward to providing personalized, state-of-the-art care in a patient-centered environment,” says Dr. Laura Meyer. “RMA of Connecticut is renowned for its commitment to treating the “whole patient,” pairing world-class medical care with individualized emotional support and integrative programs such as nutrition, yoga and acupuncture. I am excited to offer all of these resources to my patients throughout their journeys to parenthood.”
