Q & A with Dr. Uhler:

What do you like best about being a physician in reproductive medicine?
It is so rewarding to be able to help patients in their desire to have families. I have seen many lives positively changed by having a family, and I am fortunate to have a part in this special time.  

Why did you choose to work in the field of reproductive medicine?  

While I was a medical student, I did research with my professor in further defining the role of hCG in abnormal pregnancies. I did an additional rotation in the fertility clinic in my last year of medical school, and I was able to see a variety of patients including infertility, recurrent miscarriage and other endocrine disorders. My experiences confirmed my choice to do a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology.

What are your special areas of interest in reproductive medicine? 

I have a special interest in male infertility due to the research I have done throughout my fellowship and while in academic medicine.

Other areas of special interest include recurrent pregnancy loss, raising fertility awareness in young women who may be questioning their fertility potential and complementary medicine such as acupuncture and yoga. 

What do you do for fun in your spare time?

In my spare time, I like to sing and play the piano, read murder mysteries, and bake desserts.
