My Journey in Medicine

I am passionate about helping people conceive a child while upholding the highest standards of patient care. Each day, I am driven to put my best foot forward to make my patients’ dreams come true.

Before moving to the United Arab Emirates, I was working at top in vitro fertilization (IVF) clinics in London. In my three years at ARGC, we were able to achieve the highest pregnancy rates among all IVF clinics in the United Kingdom. Now I work at Gargash Hospital in Dubai, leading my team of embryologists with the goal to maximize conception success rates.

Day to day, I have the pleasure of meeting many inspiring people and consulting with them on their fertility. I also perform egg collection, examine healthy sperm and eggs, and monitor embryos to select the ones that will be transferred into the patient’s uterus. If necessary, I carry out pre-implantation genetic testing of the embryos to check for any chromosomal abnormalities and increase the chances of a healthy pregnancy.  

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be here as a member of Flo’s medical board and help millions of people around the globe on their health and pregnancy journeys.
