Meet Sarah Musallam

One of the compassionate Fertility Physicians at Kofinas

I have been in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology for seven years, during which time I completed a four-year residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital at the Columbia University Medical Center followed by a three-year fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology at the University of Pennsylvania.

I completed my undergraduate education at Amherst College where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry. I continued on to study medicine at the Yale University School of Medicine and completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the New York Presbyterian Hospital at the Columbia University Medical Center. I then completed my fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and Master of Science in Translational Research at the University of Pennsylvania.

Why did you choose to go into this profession?

I chose to become a fertility doctor because I enjoy caring helping patients bring home a baby. There are many unique challenges that patients face when planning a family and I want to help patients navigate the process and achieve their reproductive goals. I am also interested in translational research that enables us to systematically ask questions raised in the clinic and to bring the answers we find back to the clinic to advance the care we can provide our patients. I am excited to be a part of this fast-growing field that puts patient care first and that has continued to advance dramatically in the past 30+ years because of ongoing research.

What about did you find compelling about it? What do you most enjoy about it now?

Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility was particularly compelling because I have the opportunity to care for patients with a range of endocrine disorders, disorders of development of the reproductive tract, and offer procedures to help patients with infertility to have a baby. Helping patients bring home a baby is a most exciting experience.

How would you characterize your style of patient interaction?

I have a patient-centered style. Every patient and their set of circumstances is unique and everyone deserves individualized care. I make every effort to listen keenly to my patients, to answer all questions, and to take the time to explain the reasons for the recommended treatment plan.

What do you hope to be able to give or do for patients?

I hope to give my patients the gift of a baby through a partnership that makes them feel valued and cared for along the way.

What is your best quality as a member of this practice’s team? How does that help you in your role?

I am lucky to be joining such a talented team of physicians and staff. I believe that my background in translational research will help advance the research mission of the practice and that my ability to work well with patients and team members of diverse backgrounds can contribute to fostering a warm and welcoming environment for all.

Anything additional you would like to tell us or that you feel would be pertinent to information about you?

I was born in the sunny island of Jamaica where I lived until completing high school. I enjoying cooking spicy Jamaican dishes including curry and jerk chicken and am always on the lookout for a good recipe.
