Dr. Meivys Garcia Medical Director

Co-Owner, Markham Fertility Centre
Director, Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society

Having struggled with infertility myself, I can empathize with my patients. Whatever the outcome, I want my patients to come away from this process feeling proud of their journey.

Dr. Meivys Garcia joined Markham Fertility Centre in 2011, where she continues to provide state-of-the-art, exceptional, and comprehensive care to her patients. She also serves as the center’s senior partner and medical director.

Dr. Garcia discovered her passion for Obstetrics and Gynaecology during her 5-year sub-specialty training at the University of Western Ontario. This led her to pursue a two-year Royal College Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. Throughout her academic career, she received many prestigious awards, including (but not limited to) the Governor General Academic Medal, the Institute of Medical Science Academic Award, the Medical Biophysics Academic Award, the Helen Mildred Allison Academic Award, the Obstetrics and the Gynaecology Academic Proficiency Award, provided to the top resident of the graduating class.

Her research has also been well-recognized. She received the Canadian Foundation for Women’s Health Research Award and the Paul Harding Research Award in 2008 and 2009.

Her main interests are in the area of unexplained infertility, immunological disorders leading to subfertility and fertility-enhancing surgery.

Most recently, Dr Garcia was elected to the Board of the Canadian Fertility and Andrology Society (CFAS) where she will play a part in shaping the future of assisted reproduction in Canada.

When not at the office, you can find Dr. Garcia at home with her boys and her dog, either curled up with a book, journaling or sweating and singing at the top of her lungs on her peloton bike.

Dr Garcia has passion for educating the public on all things fertility. Check out her Instagram page, where Dr Garcia regularly posts personal thoughts. Dr Garcia can also be found on the clinic's Instagram page.

More About Dr. Garcia

We asked  each of our doctors some questions so you can learn a little more about who they are as people, not just as clinicians.

What motivates you?

I love to help people fight for what they want. Nothing inspires me more than the sheer determination of my patients. Being their cheerleader and being a witness to their journey is one of the greatest joys of my professional life.

What is your message to patients who are struggling to create their family?

Fertility care is not about a single treatment that either works or it doesn’t. Every set back is like a building block on that road to the life you dream of. I encourage patients to let go of the expectation of HOW and WHEN it is going to happen and embrace that possibility that it WILL happen, even if not exactly in the way that we once hoped. I know this is easier said than done. It took me years on my own journey to let go of that need to control things. 

What would your patients say about you?

I am “touchy feely”. I like to know what my patients are FEELING. I ask about their emotions all the time. I don’t believe in feeling sad FOR them, I believe is feeling sad WITH them. Their tears touch me deeply, but they don’t scare me. I like to create a safe space where my patients can feel comfortable feeling all the feels.
