Dr. Delani Kotarba
I chose to specialize in reproductive endocrinology because it is challenging and yet so rewarding. There is a personal connection with patients that grows during their journey. I love to connect with the patients and help them achieve their dream of a family. My favorite part of my job is seeing patients return with their children. They love to come and show me their precious family.
