About me

Dr. Martha Noel is a reproductive endocrinologist and fertility specialist whose main focus is patients seeking treatment for infertility. She also has expertise in caring for patients seeking fertility preservation and patients who need care for early ovarian failure, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), menstrual or uterine abnormalities, and couples with genetic conditions requiring assisted reproductive technology for preimplantation genetic diagnosis (a screening technique for embryos). She primarily treats adults but also sees girls and teens with reproductive endocrine disorders.

In her research, Noel examines factors that impact in vitro fertilization (IVF) outcomes, particularly in women who have unexplained infertility, endometriosis or PCOS. In addition, she is interested in exploring ways to improve access to and coverage of fertility care, with the goal of increasing or mandating insurance coverage for fertility services.

Noel earned her medical degree at Weill Cornell Medical College. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology through Cornell's program at New York–Presbyterian Hospital, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at UCSF.

Noel is a member of the American Medical Association and American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
