When asked about her care philosophy, Dr. Okeigwe says: “My goal is to always provide compassionate, collaborative, evidence-based care. It is important to me to understand what my patients are feeling and thinking and work with them to form a treatment plan that not only optimizes their treatment success but also makes them feel comfortable and safe throughout the journey. I want my patients to know that when they entrust their care into my hands, I’m doing everything I can to see to it that their dreams of becoming a parent, whether that’s now or later, come true.”
