Stephanie Rothenberg, MD, FACOG is thrilled to be back in the Pacific Northwest and joining the team at PNWF. She is a board certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist and fellowship trained Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist. After attending medical school at the University of Washington, she completed both her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Magee-Womens Hospital. During her time at Magee, she received extensive training in both basic and complex infertility evaluation and management, in vitro fertilization, complex hysteroscopy, and medical ethics.
Dr. Rothenberg is a fellow in the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG), as well as a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society (PCRS), Seattle Gynecological Society and Resolve.
Dr. Rothenberg is passionate about fertility preservation, as well as providing compassionate and comprehensive LGBTQ+ fertility care. Much of her research has focused on fertility preservation for transgender patients prior to transition, with publications in the New England Journal of Medicine and Pediatrics.
She grew up in Eastern Washington, attending high school in Richland, WA, after which she graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Idaho. Dr. Rothenberg and her spouse met while in medical school. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, travel, cooking, floral arrangement and photography (her mini golden doodle, Brooks, is the most frequent subject).
My partner and I went to PNWF because of the positive stance they take on assisting the LGBT community build families. Our primary provider is wonderful. From the get-go, the doctor made us feel comfortable, she took the time to answer all of our questions, and it felt like we were friends talking about fertility treatment, not numbers on a chart. Our doctor, over the course of our treatment, really got to know our personalities too, which was great. I prefer scientific explanations and my partner prefers brief, "give me the short version" explanations. I mention this because the fact that she got to know us in that way really made us feel like she cared about us personally as well as the outcome of our treatment and our family.
