This week’s guest is Dr. Debra Minjarez, Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist for the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine. Dr. Minjarez is also the doctor Kristin and I visited as we began our infertility treatments. On this week’s show we discuss infertility and its many contributing factors, types of treatment, Dr. Minjarez’s role not only as medical professional, but as counselor, her amusing journey into the field, as well as who gets to order the materials for aiding sperm sample collection. We make sure to cover all the bases of infertility. This is a subject that’s very near and dear to my heart not only because of my own personal experience with it, but also because it’s more common than it seems, yet rarely discussed. We should be comfortable talking about these things, and I hope discussions like this are able to help people through whatever they’re going through.
Dr. Debra A. Minjarez joined the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine in 2001 and she is a Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologist.
She received her medical training at Stanford University and completed her residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in 1997. She then completed a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. As a fellow, she received the prestigious ACOG Ortho-McNeil Award for her research in several areas of reproductive medicine. From 1997 to 2000 she also held a faculty appointment as Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Southwestern Medical Center.
Dr. Minjarez has lectured extensively and coauthored several chapters on various gynecology topics. In addition to her interest in infertility, Dr. Minjarez focuses on the management of patients with polycystic ovarian syndrome, pediatric and adolescent gynecology and congenital abnormalities of the genital tract.
Dr. Minjarez is bilingual in Spanish and welcomes the opportunity to assist Spanish-speaking couples. Dr. Minjarez is the perfect choice for women who prefer a female for their reproductive care.
