Doctor’s Note: Truly, MD

While this note won’t get you out of work or off from school, it will give you information on who we are and why we built Truly, MD. It will tell you why we are lending our voices to everything female and why we, a couple of girls in the know, are sharing our medical knowledge and personal experiences with anyone who will listen.

We are doctors, moms, and athletes, and we are on a mission. Our goal is to empower and educate women on all things reproductive. We are honest, we are direct, and we don’t sugarcoat the truth. From your first period to your last, Truly, MD, offers answers, insight, and awareness of all things female-related. Is birth control bad? Am I fertile? When do I need to see a fertility doctor? Are these pregnancy symptoms normal? Can I exercise in pregnancy? Do I have to breastfeed? Can I take hormone replacement therapy? You name it, and we will talk about it. From the complex to the basic, we are going to give you answers, real answers.

At Truly, MD, no conversation is off limits. No question is dumb, and nothing is too controversial. Truly, MD, was born (no pun intended) out of our desire to change the dialogue, shake up the conversation, and revamp the answers women were being given about their reproductive health. It is our quest to help women conquer their future with accessible, digestible, and honest medical advice.

We, Jaime and Sheeva, are fertility specialists who work and live in New York City. For a full run-down of education and articles written, click here. Our practice is devoted to helping women achieve their goal of parenthood. Using a team approach (two minds are always better than one) rooted in honesty and transparency, we are redefining the doctor-patient relationship. We give it to you straight, like your best girlfriends would, but with years of medical training and experience to back it up.

However, there are only so many patients we can see in a day, only so many women we will meet in our day-to-day activities, on the spin bike, in the line at Starbucks, and at our kids’ school. Time and geography will limit which women we cross paths with. We wanted to take our message nationally, possibly even globally, educating and empowering more women to become their own advocates through our medical advice. And that’s why we launched Truly, MD.

At Truly, MD, we care about you as a whole. The body and the mind, the fitness and the food, Western and Eastern medicine. You are a sum of a lot of parts, just like we are a sum of all members on our team. It takes more than one doctor to treat you and more than just a pill or a shot to heal you. We get how complex things can be. We want to help you find what you need to make you healthier, stronger, cognizant, and empowered. Our words are simple, and our message is clear, true, and honest. Take our medical advice, and use it to change your reproductive future. Take our personal experiences, and use them to change your overall future. Take what we, a couple of girls, know, and shape your now.

Truly Yours,

Jaime and Sheeva
