Melissa Montes, MD, FACOG has over 10 years of experience helping New Yorkers and beyond start families. With numerous peer-reviewed publications and thousands of success stories under her belt, she continues to help Kofinas Fertility Group advance the boundaries of fertility medicine.
“I feel a deep connection to the women and men who come to our practice. Their struggle is my struggle, and the bond we share drives my passion for my work. Being approachable and friendly helps creates strong relationships with my patients, and because fertility care is such an emotionally charged field, a warm and caring demeanor makes a significant impact on each person’s experience. It builds trust, and solid trust is the most important aspect of my relationships with my patients.”
“In addition to relishing the human connections involved with fertility care, I’m also fascinated by the endocrinology and physiology of reproductive medicine. The science of fertility care is rapidly progressing, and I’m always learning about new treatments and techniques that can help my patients. Even more, I feel it’s my job as a physician to explain every step of your fertility therapy in an accessible, straightforward manner. Managing expectations is a big part of my responsibility, and educating you plays an important role in meeting that standard.”
“Being a mother gives me empathy for your struggle. Raising my children has been more amazing than I’d ever imagined, and I work extremely hard to give that experience to everyone I treat.”
