THOMAS A. MOLINARO, MD, MSCE, FACOG
Dr. Molinaro decided to become a reproductive endocrinologist as a third year medical student, and says there was never any doubt in his mind that this is what he would do. “I enjoyed the idea that I could make a difference in a couple’s life,” he says. “The work is rewarding and there is a clear goal – help a couple have a baby. It’s a very powerful thing to help someone achieve that.”
A self-confessed gadget aficionado in his spare time who also holds a degree in epidemiology – the study of the determinants of disease in a population, Dr. Molinaro says the cutting edge and high tech resources available at RMANJ not only guide his patients toward their goal of parenthood, but also make the clinic second to none when it comes to true academic medicine. “Clinical care, research, and education all combine to form the basis of academic medicine, and all three are here,” he says. “We are setting the standards for clinical care, have a commitment to research that is unparalleled for a private practice, and we are training the next generation of reproductive endocrinologists.”
Dr. Molinaro says RMANJ offers the best of all worlds, working to answer questions which had been previously unobtainable in the name of helping patients become parents. “There is nothing more rewarding than listening to a baby’s heartbeat for the first time with a couple who may have been trying for years to make it happen. It’s the best part of my day.”
