A Tribute to Sam Thatcher, M.D., Ph.D.
Perhaps the best description of Sam Thatcher is one paraphrased in his book Making a Baby, co- written with Debra Fulghum Bruce: “He was a polar bear of a man, … a rumpled Ivy League professor who returned home to start his own practice… (with) a style that was a combination of therapist, detective and scientist.” His untimely death was a loss to infertility patients everywhere. Sam always did the right thing for his patients and will be terribly missed. Read the tribute the man who brought the most economical IVF in the US to his patients.
