Good morning. Everyone here at Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut are sending out their heartfelt thoughts that everyone is as safe and sound as possible. We know that this storm has wrought tremendous damage, with much of it still on going. We hope that you are all in a safe place and that power is restored as quickly as possible.

We are doing everything we possibly can to ensure that your fertility treatment goes on as smoothly as possible. One less thing to worry about, we hope.

Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut regrets the closing of the Danbury office, we have no power. As soon as power is restored, the office will reopen. Please check here for updates, as well as our Facebook page.

Fertility Doctor Joshua M. Hurwitz, MD Makes Partner at RMACT

Lisa Rosenthal

Fertility Doctor Joshua M. Hurwitz, MD Earns Partnership at Leading CT Fertility Practice

Fertility Doctor Joshua M. Hurwitz, MDFertility Specialist Dr. Joshua M. Hurwitz, who sees patients in Connecticut and New York, has been promoted to partner of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT). As a partner with the fertility practice, Dr. Hurwitz will greatly expand his leadership role while continuing his close work with fertility patients to help in their family building and infertility treatment. Dr. Hurwitz will also spearhead the practice’s new team-based comprehensive program to treat adolescents with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).

 

Dr. Hurwitz, who is board-certified in both Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, has been an infertility specialist with RMACT since 2006. During this time, he has helped hundreds of couples build their families by diagnosing and treating their fertility challenges. He is passionate about patient care and teaching, which he incorporates into his bedside manner; Dr. Hurwitz believes that patients who have a better understanding of their diagnosis and options make better choices for themselves and are more engaged with their fertility treatment.

 

Dr. Joshua M. Hurwitz Shares His Knowledge of Reproductive Medicine

“Working with patients is incredibly rewarding, especially in a field like reproductive medicine where the advances are rapid and far-reaching,” says Dr. Hurwitz, who teaches endocrinological, surgical, genetic and in-vitro fertilization (IVF) techniques at RMACT and Danbury Hospital. “For six years I’ve been proud that my patients have benefited from RMACT’s cutting edge medicine – and I’m thrilled to expand my role and responsibilities as partner in this dynamic and forward-thinking practice.”

 

In addition to his partnership with RMACT, Dr. Hurwitz is Division Director of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) services in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences of Danbury Hospital, where he develops and implements the division’s academic program, teaching residents, giving lectures, as well as caring for infertility patients. He is also an assistant professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, NY.

 

Dr. Hurwitz received his undergraduate degree in Biology and Society from Cornell University, and his medical degree from the Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Dr. Hurwitz completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, also in Philadelphia. During residency training, Dr. Hurwitz was named Best Laparoscopic Surgeon, and has received many teaching awards.

 

After residency, he completed a three-year fellowship in reproductive endocrinology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. During his fellowship, Dr. Hurwitz successfully launched several research programs related to reproductive aging and diminished ovarian reserve and has presented his research findings at many leading national and international fertility conferences. His research interests also include premature ovarian failure, oocyte cryopreservation, reproductive surgeries, embryo donation, and bioethics. He has published numerous abstracts, articles and book chapters on reproductive aging, reproductive hormones, IVF, ultrasound, and bioethics. Dr. Hurwitz is a member of the Society of Reproductive Endocrinologists, Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
