Courtney provides a wide range of services: From routine physicals to endometrial biopsies, to ultrasounds and saline sonograms. Her vast knowledge of this rapidly growing field is helping families grow on a day to day basis.
Courtney is intensely passionate about the fertility field. This is largely due to the fact that without reproductive medicine, she and her siblings, would not be here today. It is because of this she has dedicated her life to giving back to a field that has afforded her all the life opportunities she has today. Courtney offers her remarkably sensitive approach to a field that can sometimes be a bit intimidating, allowing patients to feel comfortable and confident making decisions that can and will likely change the dynamic of their family.
Courtney collaborates with Dr. Levine throughout every step of their patient’s reproductive journey, from the initial evaluation to creating a plan for follow up care.
