Dr. Jennifer Hirshfeld-Cytron

Here's your chance to meet our newest addition to the Fertility Centers of Illinois team, Dr. Jennifer Hirshfeld-Cytron!

Why did you choose to become a doctor? 
I became a doctor for the unique opportunity to help people. I also enjoy science and working closely with people. I find being a doctor a true honor. I feel so lucky to have a job in which, I absolutely love going to work everyday!

Why did you choose fertility treatment as your career?
Being a fertility doctor provides a wonderful opportunity to work closely with a couple on a common goal.  As a mother I can appreciate how truly special having children is to a person’s quality of life.  Infertility patients have been through a lot already. The field of infertility has improved so greatly in the past 20 years that sharing all of the technological advancements with patients is very exciting.  

What do you find is the most enjoyable part about working for Fertility Centers of Illinois?
I have recently joined FCI and am so excited about being a part of such a special institution.  FCI balances state of the art technology with personalized patient care.

What do you like to do for fun outside of the office? Do you have any hobbies, favorite activities, etc?
I love to travel, run, watch movies and spend time with family and friends.  Sadly, I am a sucker for anything on the BRAVO network!

We hope you've enjoyed getting to know one of our FCI doctors! Keep checking back for our next edition. See Dr. Hirshfeld-Cytron's FCI page here!
