Meet Dr. Fisher
Thomas E. Fisher, DO, is a board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist. He joined Oregon Reproductive Medicine (ORM) in February 2017 after 2.5 years with a private practice in Washington.
Dr. Fisher is also a former ORM patient, giving him first-hand insight into what his patients are going through. “My experience with infertility helps me with my interactions with my patients. It offers a sense of understanding for them to know their doctor has had a similar experience. It also helps open the lines of communication with my patients, so I can personalize their care as much as possible.”
Personally, Dr. Fisher appreciates ORM for helping him start the family that he now has. Professionally, he is thrilled to join a company that is growing and furthering the world of fertility research. “I’m excited to be with such a prolific company that is one of the most sought after fertility centers in the world.”
Joining the ORM team brings Dr. Fisher full circle, having done his undergraduate and doctoral studies here in Portland. His doctoral research focused on understanding the role of vitamin D in infertility, and his findings have been published in multiple medical journals. He has presented at several industry conferences, including the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, the Endocrine Society annual meeting and the Society for Gynecologic Investigation where he received the Giorgio Pardi Foundation SGI Plenary session prize award.
As part of his focus at ORM, Dr. Fisher looks forward to furthering the dialog around fertility struggles. “As a society, there’s a stigma around infertility. Opening the doors to more communication about it will help normalize the experience for those who are struggling to get pregnant.”
