Patient Experience with Dr. Poe-Zeigler
Get to know Fertility Specialist Dr. Robin L. Poe-Zeigler, who serves patients in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
Dr. Poe-Zeigler’s medical story is one that is driven by love, passion, and a constant desire to spread hope. In 1982, she lost her mother to breast cancer- a loss that would shape her medical career forever. She started medical school with a focus on gynecologic cancer, trying to help women who suffered the same way her mother did, but as she progressed through school, she realized that this course caused her to frequently relive the loss of her mother. So, instead of focusing on cancer and potential death, Dr. Poe-Zeigler changed directions to focus on infertility and potential life. To this day, this still brings joy and great meaning to her life.
After finishing medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School and her 4 year residency at the York Hospital in York, Pennsylvania, Dr. Poe-Zeigler was awarded a fellowship at the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine in Norfolk, Virginia. Four years later, she opened The New Hope Center for Reproductive Medicine “on a wing and a prayer.”
Since the practice’s opening in 1997, Dr. Poe-Zeigler has helped bring over 3,000 babies to loving families all across the world. In the almost 20 years that New Hope has been open, Dr. Robin and the New Hope team have perfected a unique, personal and boutique style fertility center, where patients are family. While clinical excellence and success mark her professional career, it is her hugs and compassionate style of care that have become Dr. Poe-Zeigler’s trademark.
