Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility | Female

Dr. Maria Gondra, MD

I am an infertility doctor who believes in a full and compressive fertility care. I have a great deal of successful experience in complicated infertility cases and gynecologic surgery. My prior experience as a General Surgeon provides me with the additional capability and expertise to preserve the reproductive organs to accomplish a pregnancy and treat symptomatic conditions that can impair the quality of life without having to have a hysterectomy. Due to my own history of infertility issues I understand the emotional struggles involved and to be emotionally supportive to my patients is my priority.

    Dr. Gondra is the epitome of the medical profession! She is professional, humorous, friendly, always smiling, honest, caring, realistic, but optimistic, provides options, explains procedures and their necessity. I was treated with respect, compassion, care and she always answered my questions. Most importantly, she takes pride and truly loves her work. Should an issue arise in the future, I wouldn't hesitate to return. Thank you Dr. Gondra!

    Prior to having surgery with Dr. Gondra, I had read several reviews saying how wonderful she was and how she genuinely cares, this is absolutely true! From the first appointment through my post operative appointment she took her time and made sure all of my questions were answered. I never felt rushed and felt very cared for. I was anxious about having my first ever surgery and Dr. Gondra made the experience comfortable for me and did a wonderful job!

    I'm so happy to have found Dr. Gondra! I find her very easy to talk with and appreciate the clear explanations she offers of conditions and possible treatments. She's patient, kind, and instills extreme confidence. The staff who work with her are lovely, too - they're professional and efficient but also warm. Everyone in this office seems to respect the patients and work together to treat us well. I no longer have to dread ob-gyn appointments!

    Dr. Gondra was fantastic. My first visit she sat down and discussed my prior health, concerns and what I needed in the appointment. She treated my like a person and was very caring of my feelings. She is the first doctor that I have seen that made me truly comfortable before the exam. I would recommend her to anyone :-).
