Getting Personal: Q & A With Dr. Amy Criniti

Continuing our physician spotlight series on the blog, we recently caught up with Dr. Amy Criniti and asked her a few questions.

SRM: Where is your hometown?

South Bend, Indiana.

SRM: When did you first think about going into medicine?

My mother is a nurse and I loved going to the hospital to visit her at work. I remember knowing from a very young age that I wanted to have a career in medicine.

SRM: Why did you choose to specialize in Obstetrics/Gynecology and then subspecialize in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?

I love participating in the building of families, there is really not a greater privilege.

SRM: What is the most challenging part of your work?

I become very emotionally attached to my patients. This is the absolute best part and sometimes hardest part of my work. I want success for all my patients so deeply that it hurts sometimes.

SRM: What kind of work would you choose to do if you weren’t a physician?

I was an English major in college and I love to write. I think I would try my hand at journalism or book writing. I am obsessed with Broadway, and I can sing every score, but not well enough to make it even my night job.

SRM: What do you do to relax?

I am still trying to figure out how to do this. I love spending time with my family and traveling to new places. Walking along the beach helps me find my Zen.
