JAMIE L. MORRIS, MD, FACOG
Dr. Morris’s interest in Reproductive Endocrinology took shape when she was a practicing Ob/Gyn who saw the effect an infertility diagnosis would have on her patients. “It would come as a shock; no one expects to have fertility problems,” she says. “It’s a different diagnosis medically, emotionally, and psychologically.”
Seeing infertility specialization as a way to give more of herself to her patients, Dr. Morris left her private practice to undertake a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology. She then came to work at RMANJ, where she has been since 2002. Dr. Morris holds a degree in biomedical engineering and says she finds the technology in her field to be infinitely exciting. But most of all, she is energized by the ability she has at RMANJ to help a couple achieve their dream of partenthood. “I love working here because I can get my patients pregnant,” she says. “We offer them daily physician face time, plus the benefit of great technology, great clinical care, and all of the latest advantages. It’s the best of all worlds.”
Dr. Morris says the opportunity to educate fellows and residents, while guiding more medical professionals coming into her field adds another positive level to her work at RMANJ. “I get to do what I love, I get to do research, and I get to teach,” she says. “My job involves personalized clinical care, meaningful research, and innovative technology; everything I’m passionate about.”
In her free time, Dr. Morris enjoys playing tennis; so much so that she and her husband spent their honeymoon at a Roy Emerson tennis camp in Switzerland. She would also love to take up golf, and is a dog lover who has an adopted mixed-breed rescue at home.
Dr. Morris is a board certified Reproductive Endocrinologist, Obstetrician and Gynecologist who serves as Clinical Assistant Professor for the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Science at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. She completed her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle, Washington, and her internship and residency programs at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, working directly with RMANJ’s founding partners. Dr. Morris then joined Associates in Obstetrics and Gynecology, in Livingston, NJ, where she saw patients privately. She received her B.A. in Biomedical Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and her M.D. from Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia.
