As a testament to his success, Dr. Widra has been honored to be selected to Washingtonian’s Top Doctor List for Infertility (1994 - Present) and the Washington Consumers’ Checkbook Guide to Top Doctors (2015). Due to his consistent presentation at the annual American Society of Reproductive Medicine meetings, Dr. Widra has been a recipient of the ASRM Star Award. He has authored over sixty publications in fertility journals, such as Fertility and Sterility, Human Reproduction, and the Journal of Assisted Reproduction and Genetics.
To keep abreast of the latest in the industry, Dr. Widra maintains a membership with the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM). He serves on the Board of Directors of RESOLVE: The National Infertility Organization.
Looking back, Dr. Widra attributes his success to luck, his strong work ethic and commitment to research which has led to the best possible treatments for patients. He is most proud to be part of a growing and successful practice assisting patients through infertility.
