Gretchen Collins, M.D.
Dr. Gretchen Collins, a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist, joined Wisconsin Fertility in September of 2018. Her extensive experience in women’s health, coupled with her continual focus on innovative treatments for reproductive disorders and her dedication to providing one-on-one personalized care, make her a valuable addition to our team.
A graduate of Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine, where she also completed her residency, Dr. Collins is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. During her training, she won numerous awards for her research and exemplary surgical skill. She completed her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at University Hospitals Case Western Reserve Medical Center.
Dr. Collins has authored a number of publications centered on the causes, diagnosis, and treatment of infertility and has presented and lectured on the topics of in vitro fertilization and intrauterine insemination at national and international medical conferences. Her current research focuses on fertility-sparing treatment options for endometrial cancer, hormonal profiles among poor responding patients during various IVF stimulation protocols, and improving pain management in the post-operative period. She is currently on the board for the Midwest Reproductive Symposium, a yearly international fertility conference held in Chicago.
Dr. Collins knew she had to join Dr. Pritts after they bonded over Monty Python jokes. While Dr. Collins is younger (MUCH younger) she brings a new and fresh perspective to WFI that balances well with Dr. Pritts (MANY) years of expertise. When she isn’t in the office Dr. Collins is usually chasing around her two young boys and husband Ricky. She loves hiking, water skiing, yoga, traveling, and ping pong.
