What patients are saying …

Dr. Anne Steiner believes that highly individualized treatment rooted in a compassionate doctor-patient relationship is the best — and most successful approach — to infertility treatment. She joined UNC Fertility in 2006 after finishing medical school at Emory University, residency and a master’s in public health at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and subspecialty training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles under the direction of Richard Paulson, MD.

During her fellowship, she received intensive training in ovulation induction, in vitro fertilization, and fertility surgery, as well as the management of reproductive endocrine disorders such as polycystic ovarian syndrome and hyperprolactinemia.

Dr. Steiner is also a tenured associate professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. Medical students, residents and fellows alike seek out her firsthand experience and comprehensive understanding of recent developments in the field on a daily basis. She is nationally known for her research on biomarkers of ovarian aging as predictors of reproductive potential and has had funding for her research from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 2006. She currently serves as the primary investigator for the UNC site of the Reproductive Medicine Network, which runs infertility clinic trials.

Dr. Steiner has published extensively in the field of reproductive endocrinology and infertility and is currently an associate editor for Fertility & Sterility, the leading scientific journal in the field. She has received numerous awards including a Junior Faculty Award and the 2011 Jefferson Pilot Fellowship Award.
