About Dr. Nicole Noyes

I have been actively practicing in the fields of infertility for over three decades and in fertility preservation for the past 20 years and spent the bulk of my career affiliated with major university teaching hospitals. Originally at the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, in 1995 I moved my practice to New York University where I helped found what is now the NYU Langone Fertility Center. At NYU, I also served as a Director of Fertility Preservation for 15 years and was instrumental in setting up the university’s successful egg freezing program. I then spent 3 years at Northwell Health, serving as System Chief for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, helping to establish a full-service fertility-care operation in NYC area while holding the Directorship of Infertility and of Fertility Preservation and establishing a fully-credentialed infertility fellowship training program. Last, I severed as the NY Regional Medical Director at Kindbody, a fast-growing fertility operation with offices across the country. I am now transitioning to a virtual interactive service, allowing me to apply my skillset and accumulated experience to helping patients make the best decisions about reproduction.

Awards and Recognitions

I have repeatedly been selected as one of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors”  every year since 2003, one of the “Top Doctors for Cancer” in America every year since 2006, one of the New York Times’ “Super Doctors” every year since 2015, one of the Exceptional Women in Medicine every year since 2019, and one of New York Magazine’s Top Doctors as well as previously receiving the Family Building Award from the American Fertility Association (see full list of awards in the left column). I have also received the American College of OB/GYN (ACOG) National Faculty Teaching Award twice and have been awarded both private and national (R01) funding for fertility-related research.

Education and Qualifications

I completed undergraduate and medical studies at the University of Vermont, followed by residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) and a subspecialty fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) at the New York Presbyterian Hospital – Weill Cornell Medical Center. I am double-board-certified, in both OB/GYN and REI, am a Fellow of ACOG and achieved the status of Full Professor (at NYU) in 2009. I served as Director of Reproductive Surgery in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU from 1995 to 2015. At Northwell Health, I maintained active clinical, academic and research roles serving as the Fellowship Director for Reproductive Endocrine and Infertility training which had two training fellows per year.

Achievements in Egg Freezing

In 2004, I played a key role in establishing the Oocyte Cryopreservation (Egg Freezing) and Fertility Preservation Program at NYU, which I co-directed for 15 years. I have been actively involved in improving fertility preservation methods for reproductive-age people, whether it be in the setting of cancer or to defer or enhance reproduction for a host of other indications. The latter includes, but is not limited to: benign diseases that impactive reproductive function; job; financial or partnership status; gender reassignment; other gender-related reasons; other personal reasons; and military deployment. I am proud to share that, under my leadership, egg freezing with subsequent thawing resulted in over 350 babies born to women in the NY metropolitan area using their own previously-cryopreserved oocytes. I have used the most advanced technology and harbor the breadth of critical experience and expertise necessary to help people create family as well as preserve gametes and embryos for the future.

Schedule a Consultation

I will soon welcome patients to schedule an interactive consultation with me to discuss any and all fertility needs including fertility-enhancing procedures (insemination, IVF and frozen embryo transfers), fertility preservation (egg freezing and/or embryo banking) as well as disposition of already-cryopreserved eggs and/or embryos.
