Dr. Eleni Greenwood Jaswa is a reproductive endocrinologist and fertility specialist who primarily cares for patients seeking evaluation and treatment of infertility and patients planning for future conception through methods such as freezing eggs or embryos. Using technologies such as preimplantation genetic testing, she helps patients with inheritable genetic disorders to build their families.

As an expert in reproductive hormones, Jaswa also specializes in caring for women in menopause and women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), recurrent miscarriages, menstrual abnormalities and early ovarian failure. Most of her patients are adults, but she also sees adolescents with reproductive hormone issues.

Passionate about research, Jaswa's diverse interests include PCOS, mental health and wellness, fertility biomarkers, unexplained infertility, recurrent pregnancy loss, preimplantation genetic testing and fertility preservation methods. She is involved in research projects focused on patients' experience with egg freezing, as well as research to understand and enhance the health of patients with PCOS. She is interested in applying new dynamic research methods to old stubborn problems in order to promote discovery and improve patient care. She has published her team's work in specialty journals.

Jaswa earned her bachelor's degree in human biology and her master of science degree in biological sciences at Stanford University. She completed her medical degree at Weill Cornell Medicine. At UCSF, she completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Jaswa has received many awards. She earned Weill Cornell Medicine's highest scholastic honor, the John Metcalf Polk Prize, which is awarded to the three students who place in the top of the class for scholastic performance in all four years of medical school. She was also inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. As a resident in obstetrics and gynecology at UCSF, she earned an Excellence in Teaching Award. In addition, she has won a variety of research awards.

Jaswa and her sister, a breast radiologist at UCSF, lost their mother to breast cancer when she was 35, and have dedicated themselves to advancing women's health together.

    My husband and I left agreeing that was the smoothest best run and generally best health care experience we've ever had!

    Dr. Jaswa took the time to explain the details of egg freezing and checked in to ask if I had any questions. She made me feel very comfortable and reassured during the pelvic ultrasound.

    I am switching to UCSF from a different practice and the difference is night and day. I felt much more cared for at UCSF and communication has been MUCH better. I appreciate it.

    Dr. Jaswa really listened to my anxieties about the procedure and assuaged them with a detailed and empathetic explanation of what to expect. In lay person terms which I appreciated. She was also kind enough to ask about me personally which made me feel like she cares about me beyond just as a patient.

    I was incredibly impressed and pleased with the entire team. I finally feel optimistic and know I'm in incredible hands. I even cried during my appointment from relief. Looking forward to the journey and know I'm in the best hands!

    Dr. Jaswa is wonderful - great compassion and care pays attention to personal details and clinical ones. Interactions with her directly are 10/10. It's the difficulty navigating the system that's difficult -- waiting 5 h for an Rx that could have been sent earlier; waiting 2h after 5d for RN to be able to talk with pharmacy about some concern pharmacy has... Of course many times this goes well but the times the system is slow (Esp with pharmacy) or less responsive can feel like a full time job those days.

    Dr. Jaswa is the absolute BEST Provider I've ever had. I feel heard seen and treated like a person and patient. As an individual in healthcare myself I appreciate the care and attention Dr. Jaswa brings to each and every appt we have. She is the reason I continue to choose UCSF every year as my health care provider(s).
