Dr. David McLaughlin is a gynecologist practicing reproductive endocrinology for over 30 years. He has developed unique expertise in replacing men and women’s sex hormones, based on knowledge gained by helping infertile couples conceive through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).
He is an Eagle Scout and was elected President of his medical school class at Indiana University. During his medical school education, he externed at St. Francis Hospital, often working as the sole Emergency Room physician treating both men and women. During his rotating internship and OB-GYN residency, he moonlighted in the Emergency Room at a major trauma center in Dayton, Ohio.
He served in the Ohio Army National Guard as Company Commander of a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital (MASH) unit responsible for the health of thousands of soldiers. After 6 years, he was honorably discharged with the rank of Major.
Throughout his private practice medical career he has treated infertile men and women with different hormonal protocols and procedures. Working at a Catholic hospital in Dayton, Ohio, he pioneered a successful Vatican-approved alternative to IVF. He was invited as a speaker to the North American Bishops’ Conference to discuss Tubal Ovum Transfer, which he published in the Lancet.
He was one of the original founders of the Indianapolis Fertility Center, and later started his solo private practice in NE Indianapolis.
Prescribing bio-identical hormones for menopausal women for over 30 years, he was an approved FDA investigator, pioneering treatment protocols for Estrogen and Testosterone pellets since 1981.
Several years ago, he expanded his hormonal replacement practice to include men with Low T, treating them with subcutaneous Testosterone pellets. The vast majority of his patients report an improved quality of life in addition to the convenience of monitored appointments 2-4 months apart.
Dr. McLaughlin is devoted to his sweet wife, Katie Jo, who was his high school sweetheart. ( He gave Katie Jo her first kiss at age 14!)
