Dr. Lawrence B. Werlin of Coastal Fertility Medical Center is wrapping up 2014 with 3 new awards, demonstrating his thirty-year commitment to fertility treatment, education and patient care. Affectionately known as “the Werl” by patients and colleagues, the nationally recognized fertility specialist earned the 2014 Best Doctors in America Award from Castle Connolly Top Doctors, the 2013 Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award, and was honored as an American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2014 Star Award winner. With over 3,000 babies born thanks to his efforts, Dr. Werlin is no stranger to national recognition for his hard work.
“I am honored to have spent the past three decades helping couples work through these challenges, and to help bring new life to loving families.”
Since 1996, Dr. Werlin has been selected as a “Best Doctor in America”, and 2014 was no exception with his award from Castle Connolly Top Doctors. Castle Connolly awards are based on peer nominations, with careful review and assessment of a physician’s credentials. Dr. Werlin is honored by his most recent “Best Doctor in America” award, and knows that the achievement helps to emphasize his three decade long commitment to the highest quality patient care.
The Vitals Compassionate Doctor Award is based on patient ratings and reviews, and is awarded to “less than five percent of all doctors nationwide” – Dr. Werlin has been named “Most Compassionate Doctor” every year since 2008. The Vitals award also recognizes physicians with high ratings for their “beside manner” – an essential aspect of patient care, as many fertility patients seek a personal approach during treatment. No fertility patient wants to be “just a number” or “another patient” during a time when their dream of having a child needs professional care, and Dr. Werlin’s commitment to compassionate care is consistently noted by his patients and organizations such as Vitals – of which Dr. Werlin is also a Vitals 2014 Patient Choice Award winner.
The 2014 ASRM Star Award is granted to ASRM members who have presented “during at least nine of the ASRM Annual Meetings from 2005-2014”. These presentations demonstrate Dr. Werlin’s service and dedication to the infertility community, as Star Award winners dedicate countless hours of their time outside of patient care to presentations, post grad courses, seminars and more. The presentations provide an immeasurable impact on ASRM conference attendees, who use the knowledge gained from their sessions to help patients struggling to conceive.
As a practicing fertility specialist and leader in the field of assisted reproductive technology for over three decades, Dr. Werlin has cemented his position as a patient advocate from the very first consultation, “Fertility testing and treatment is often a difficult time for patients as they are unsure if their dream of having a child is possible. I am honored to have spent the past three decades helping couples work through these challenges, and to help bring new life to loving families.”
