Each year, the editors of Washingtonian survey 13,000 doctors in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., to find out who these doctors would recommend in a variety of specialties. The magazine has named Dr. Erin Wolff as a Top Doc in the field of fertility.
Dr. Wolff is a board-certified Reproductive Endocrinologist. She has won numerous awards for surgery and patient care excellence and was a highly esteemed NIH researcher for eight years before becoming the chief medical officer of a start-up personalized medicine fertility company in NYC.
“I’m honored to be recognized by the Washingtonian for my work as a concierge infertility specialist,” said Dr. Wolff. “As medicine becomes more like a business, I feel lucky that I have the time to get to know patients at a personal level. This detailed understanding allows me to provide the best and most individualized fertility recommendations as they try to successfully navigate a confusing system, during what is often the most vulnerable time of my patients’ lives.”
Dr. Wolff is the founder of Pelex, a concierge fertility practice where she educates her patients in the complexities of assisted reproduction and serves as their advocate throughout their journeys toward parenthood.
For gay men looking to become parents, gestational surrogacy has become a popular option. In the past, it was more common for a surrogate to be artificially inseminated and then carry the baby to term. With gestational surrogacy, one woman donates the eggs and a second woman carries the baby. In this case, the success rate can be influenced by selecting both the healthiest eggs and the healthiest gestational carrier. One or both men can contribute the sperm that is used to form the embryo (or embryos).
