Q&A with Margarita Dorfman, APN-C

Infertility Support

We recently sat down with South Jersey Fertility Center’s newest provider, Margarita, to learn more about why she chose to work in the field of reproductive endocrinology, what is the most rewarding part of her job, and advice she’d like to share with patients who are trying to conceive.

Q: Why did you choose SJFC?

A: South Jersey Fertility Center is a well-established practice that has been helping people build families for decades now. I always heard positive feedback from the patients that I referred there when I worked in an OB/GYN practice. It is great to now be a part of the team now and see their compassion and expertise in action!

Q: Why did you choose the field of reproductive endocrinology?

A: It is a very rewarding field that lets you combine the knowledge of science with direct patient care that has the potential to have a great impact on someone’s life. 

Q: What is the most rewarding part of your job?

A: I love to empower patients with information about their current health and potential treatment options. It is a privilege to guide my patients on the road to parenthood. 

Q: What do you think is the most interesting service/technology that fertility has to offer?

A: Preimplantation genetic testing (PGT) offers additional options and solutions to people undergoing IVF by examining embryos before possible transfer to a woman’s uterus. We now have the ability to screen for abnormal chromosome number (PGT-A), monogenic disease (PGT-M), and for structural chromosomal rearrangements (PGT-SR). Although not everyone undergoing IVF needs to or chooses to do the testing, it is a great option to have.  

Q: If you could share one piece of advice with patients trying to get pregnant, what would it be?

A: The fertility journey can often be stressful. As we take you through it step by step, try to schedule time for self-care, relaxation, and grounding. We are here to support you!

Q: What do you like to do in your spare time?

A: In my free time, I love to get outside, cook, DIY around the house, and do yoga.
