Dr P. Ronald Clisham, M.D., HCLD

Why I’m Here For YOU

“I’m a good listener. I make myself available to patients. I like to take on the challenge of a difficult problem, a patient, who may not have received appropriate care due to financial, language, or institutional barriers. My colleagues and I at The Fertility Institute share similar values. That’s why we do what we do.”

Approach to Treatment

Infertility struggles are close to Dr. Clisham’s heart. His cousin struggled with infertility while he was in the second year of his ObGyn residency. He wanted to help her, as he does his patients today. Dr. Clisham enjoys working with patients and breaking down complex medical concepts into understandable language so patients can participate in their treatment. He does his best to make himself available and empathetic for every patient in his care.
