Dr. Michael Baker majored in Genetics at Texas A&M University and subsequently achieved his Ph.D. in Reproductive Biology from U.T. Southwestern Medical Center. His dissertation research focused on the identification of genes which contribute to optimal sperm and egg formation.
“Providing exceptional laboratory services means optimizing success at every stage of our patient’s fertility journey. Quality improvement never stops when we have the chance to send one more baby home!”
Michael worked closely with the nationally renowned Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility fellowship program at UT Southwestern to gain a unique perspective for an embryologist. This early clinical exposure truly emphasized the challenges and stresses faced by fertility patients. Keeping this in mind, Michael strives everyday to meet the highest of laboratory benchmark standards, without compromise, to provide exceptional patient care. Michael completed his embryology training at one of the largest, most successful, IVF clinic in all of Florida. He optimized his technical skill set (including ICSI and embryo biopsy) while managing a team of ten exceptional embryologists.
