Shawn E. Gurtcheff, MD, MS

Dr. Gurtcheff grew up moving from state to state as her father followed his passion of flying airplanes for the U.S. Air Force. She is very proud to now call Utah home, and having been here a total of 13 years, she has lived here far longer than anywhere else. She completed both her post-doctoral residency and fellowship training, and she received her Master’s Degree from the University of Utah. She had the very special opportunity to practice general obstetrics and gynecology for several years prior to sub-specializing in fertility. While she does certainly miss the excitement of Labor and Delivery, Dr. Gurtcheff so highly values family that she loves focusing on helping others build theirs. She feels it is a great honor to share this amazingly wonderful and difficult journey, and she strives to provide comprehensive and personalized care to all of her patients. She is dedicated to individualizing treatment plans for her patients, and to supporting them emotionally through the process.
