M. Mercedes Gondra, MD, FACOG
Gynecologist & Infertility Specialist located in Phoenix, AZ
I am an infertility doctor who believes in a full and comprehensive fertility care. I have a great deal of successful experience in complicated infertility cases and reproductive surgery. My prior experience as a General Surgeon provides me with the additional capability and expertise to preserve the reproductive organs to accomplish a pregnancy and treat symptomatic conditions that can impair the quality of life without having to have a hysterectomy. Due to my own history of infertility issues, I understand the emotional struggles involved and to be emotionally supportive to my patients is my priority.
I love helping people to accomplish their dreams of having a family. I try to offer as a doctor, what I would like to have as a patient. I believe in compassion and empathy. I love my profession and helping people any way I can.
I am originally from Argentina where I became a doctor, then a general surgeon and later on a colorectal surgeon. In 2001 frustrated with the socioeconomic situation in Argentina I moved to USA. It took me 4 years to learn English and validate my medical degree in USA. At the time of choosing a residency in USA, I opted for women’s care. I did my residency in OGBYN at University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha Nebraska. There I fell in love with infertility and minimally invasive gynecological surgery and I joined the team of Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine. There I received excellent training in Infertility and Reproductive Endocrinology. In 2011 due to my love to the outdoors and my passion for cycling I decided to move to Phoenix, AZ, where after few years I started my own practice, Gondra Center for Reproductive Care and Advanced Gynecology.
