Dr. Amato specializes in the science of caring for patients with infertility, polycystic ovary syndrome, and menopausal issues. Her research interests include stem cells, metabolic-endocrine interactions, and environmental impacts on reproductive health. Dr. Amato finds her work intellectually stimulating and highly rewarding. The science of reproduction and connecting with individuals and families are what inspired her to pursue a career in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Dr. Amato loves the Pacific Northwest and says that OHSU is a great fit for her. In addition to outdoor sports, reading, independent music and film, and ethnic food, Dr. Amato enjoys spending time with her partner and their two dogs.

    She was pleasant and was willing to spend the time to answer my questions

  • Nov 23, 2018

    They were 45 mins late for my appointment and didn't notify me that they had called in a prescription for my appointment. Then when I got there they asked if I had taken the antibiotics before my perceedure. When I said no they asked if I wanted to reschedule.
