Wendy Schillings, MD Medical Director, Fertility Preservation
About Wendy Schillings, MD
I am so excited to have joined forces to work with RADfertility’s great group of physicians! As a strong believer in personalized care, my goal is to work with patients or couples to educate them about fertility treatments and diagnoses so that they feel empowered to participate in their care.
As a high school student who knew that my future was in medicine, I became one of the few women members of the young physicians’ group! In college, I grew more interested in women’s issues and followed this passion into medical school, where I got involved in women’s health. Reproductive endocrinology was the perfect area of medicine to combine my surgical expertise along with the joy of creating and building families.
I joined RADfertility with over 25 years of experience in the field of reproductive medicine. For the first 10 years of my career, I helped patients grow their families while serving as a member of the teaching faculty for various medical schools. I then took that experience and ran a practice for over 10 years. As RADfertility’s Medical Director of Fertility Preservation, I help men and women preserve their future fertility prior to cancer treatment or for personal reasons through egg, sperm or embryo freezing.
What I love about my career is seeing all the babies that we help create and all the wonderful families that we bring together. It’s really exciting when you see them years later and can reflect on how you’ve changed their lives. Everybody has their own story, and working with them to help them become a parent is a wonderful thing.
