The Center for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome focuses on the total health care needs of the patient with polycystic ovarian syndrome. Polycystic ovarian syndrome is the most common endocrinopathy known. It is caused by the excessive production of male hormone by the ovaries. Frequently encountered problems are irregular menstrual cycles, increased dark hair growth, acne, excessive weight gain, or difficulty losing weight. Individuals with polycystic ovarian syndrome are at increased risk for long term health problems, especially diabetes and heart disease. The Center for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a division of the Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine, our downtown clinic focusing primarily on infertility. The goal at the Center for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is to provide comprehensive care for the PCOS patient.
The Center for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is staffed by three Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinologists/Infertility subspecialists. These are physicians Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology who have gone on to do two and three more years of training in gynecologic endocrine problems. They are uniquely qualified to care for the polycystic ovarian syndrome patient. Dr. Kevin L. Winslow completed his Fellowship at the Eastern Virginia School of Medicine. Dr. Daniel M. Duffy completed his Fellowship at the University of Southern California. Dr. Michael Freeman completed his Fellowship at Wayne State University. We have a Registered Dietitian, Melissa Timonere, who is very knowledgeable in the special dietary needs of the PCOS patient, as well as a licensed laser hair removal specialist, Karen Lanier.
