Dr. Lynn B. Davis knew from an early age that having children was very important to her—her biggest reward is helping others do the same. Recognizing that fertility treatment can be overwhelming, she places special emphasis on becoming an ally to her patients throughout their experience.
In 2008, Dr. Davis returned to her hometown of Seattle to be part of the growing SRM team. In addition to her clinical and teaching experience, Dr. Davis brought a special interest in medical decision-making, treatment plan cost effectiveness and evidence-based treatment strategies, backed by her Master’s degree in Health Research & Policy from Stanford University.
Dr. Davis developed and now leads SRM’s Fertility Preservation Program, a specialized approach that assists women who need assisted reproductive technology to efficiently delay conception. In this capacity, Dr. Davis works with patients who are about to undergo chemotherapy or radiation therapies (for cancer or other health conditions) that may cause infertility. SRM is especially fortunate to have their Fertility Preservation Program spearheaded by Dr. Davis, whose expertise in health policy, decision analysis and evaluation of new technology are crucial to the special patient groups served by this program. Her clinical specialties include In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), Oncofertility (the fertility needs of patients with cancer) and Oocyte Vitrification, an egg preservation technique.
I have not always had the best experience with physicians. I often find the experience frustrating, but when I walked into Dr. Davis’s office it felt like warm hug. She was supportive and patient. She listened to me and validated not only the symptoms, but also the emotions I was feeling. It felt like we were in this together and I was on board with her suggestions.
