Proud to Have Helped Thousands of Families to Have Babies for Over 36 Years
Dorothy Mitchell-Leef has practiced Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility for 36 years in Atlanta. At this time she is consulting with patients regarding all aspects of infertility and endocrine concerns. She is proud to have helped thousands of families in Atlanta have over 9,000 babies so far.
Her experience at RBA was at the forefront of infertility treatments for decades. She had the first ICSI ( intracytoplasmic sperm injection) pregnancy in the Western Hemisphere in 1993, the first frozen egg pregnancy at RBA, and the first two gestational surrogate pregnancies in the state of Georgia. She also had the first twin gestational surrogacy pregnancy in the state of Georgia.
Now, Dr. Mitchell-Leef is using the knowledge gained over her years of experience to provide patients/couples of all orientations with early consultations in order to empower them to be proactive and get the testing needed by their physicians so they may be guided effectively through the fertility process.
She can effectively direct patients for either simple treatments, or may refer them to a reproductive endocrinologist which do the ART procedures of IVF, CGH, egg freezing, embryo screening for genetic concerns, surrogacy, and egg donation. She also consults with patients/couples who have issues with recurrent pregnancy loss, polycystic ovarian disease, endometriosis, low AMH (Antimullerian Hormone) levels, and other hormone-related disorders.
Pioneer of the Field
Dr. Mitchell-Leef has been a pioneer and in the forefront of using Assisted Reproductive Technologies for her patient care during her 25 year tenure at RBA. She had the first ICSI ( intracytoplasmic sperm injection) pregnancy in the Western Hemisphere in 1993, the first frozen egg pregnancy at RBA, and the first two gestational surrogate pregnancies in the state of Georgia. She has been active in assisting couples in the LGBTQ community for 35 years. She began treatments to allow cancer patients(Oncofertility) over 15 years ago allowing patients to freeze embryos or eggs before chemotherapy or radiation treatment and then returning to achieve successful pregnancies after their cancer care was completed.
Become a Patient
Today, Dr. Mitchell-Leef is consulting with patients/couples who have issues with infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, polycystic ovarian disease, endometriosis, IVF, embryo screening for genetic concerns, surrogacy, potential egg freezing, low AMH (Antimullerian Hormone) levels, egg donation and other hormone related disorders, as well as consulting members of the LGBTQ community about their myriad of options.
Time is a major concern for women essentially beginning after 30. Doing an AMH level is important to know about egg reserves (low or high) so that they may be able to achieve a pregnancy on their own or need to consider freezing their eggs if they are not considering a pregnancy in the near future.
Understanding what needs to be done quickly can facilitate them achieving a pregnancy more effectively. Dr. Mitchell-Leef wishes to assist couples who have questions or problems that might save time by early consultations and effective treatment.
