Read on to hear more about her and RMACT other award winning fertility specialists.
Dr. Cynthia Murdock of Reproductive Medicine Associates of Connecticut (RMACT) has earned the “Patients’ Choice 2012” award, which is given to only five percent of the nation’s 870,000 active physicians and dentists. This award is tabulated by PatientsChoice.org based on patient reviews and ratings on care and service on websites such as Vitals.com.
The Patients' Choice Award is No Easy Feat
Millions of patients go online each year to rate their doctors on various components of care, including accuracy of their diagnosis, the amount of time they spent with the doctor, and the doctor's bedside manner and follow-up care. Patients' Choice reviews these rankings and other quality measures to compile its yearly list of award winners. Dr. Murdock joins her RMACT colleagues Drs. Spencer Richlin and Joshua M. Hurwitz, who also received this award.
“I try to work with my patients as a woman, a mom and a doctor,” says Dr. Murdock. “Each of these three perspectives is helpful when developing their unique infertility treatment plan. That relationship and helping them start a family is rewarding on its own, so being recognized by my patients with this award is extraordinary.”
Dr. Murdock earned a BA in biology at Cornell University and an MD at Creighton University School of Medicine where she graduated magna cum laude. She completed her residency at Creighton University Medical Center where she was named Berlex Best Teaching Resident. In 2003 she completed a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the National Institutes of Health.
An experienced researcher, Dr. Murdock has contributed to numerous peer-reviewed studies and presented at several of the most prestigious conferences in the field of reproductive medicine. The focus of much of her research has been on estrogen receptors, hypothalamic neuron function, and precocious puberty.
Dr. Murdock is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, as well as a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
