Fertility Specialist Shares Impact of Remote Work Environment on Patient Community

Dr. Lora Shahine, MD, FACOG, a reproductive endocrinologist at Pacific Northwest Fertility and Associate Clinical Professor at the University of Washington discusses how remote work has made navigating the logistics of fertility more convenient for people on their paths to parenthood, but also more isolating. The advantages of improved privacy, reduced work stress, and the ease of scheduled appointments are offset by the challenges of the need for community, support, and resources.
