Serena H Chen MD

Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility , IRMS

Serena H. Chen MD serves as Director of Reproductive Medicine at the Saint Barnabas Medical Center, and IRMS, the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science in New Jersey, and Clinical Associate Professor at both Rutgers Medical Schools. Dr Chen feels privileged to be trusted with the reproductive health of people in so many different situations and is dedicated to improving access to reproductive care by breaking down barriers to care and raising public awareness. She is amazed and grateful every day at the explosion in reproductive technology that is happening today, but feels that physicians and scientists must advocate for better support for providers and patients. The education, information and insurance gaps in healthcare today continue to be the biggest barrier between the promise of these new technologies and their actual delivery. Please join her in advocating for better reproductive health for all on Instagram and Twitter @DrSerenaHChen or and
