Dr. Fenske applies her broad medical expertise to treat a range of complex conditions, including perimenopause, menopause, hormone imbalances, endometriosis, pelvic pain, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), using a functional approach.
Dr. Suzanne Fenske is passionate about empowering women to take charge of their health. She provides unparalleled integrative care for women’s health, including gynecological conditions and hormone therapy in perimenopause and menopause. As a double board-certified gynecologist and integrative medicine physician she offers a genuine, integrative approach, combining traditional medicine with botanicals, targeted supplements, and personalized lifestyle strategies.
Dr. Fenske’s passion arises from her personal experiences with hormones and health. She was diagnosed with PCOS in her 20s and followed the conventional recommendation to take birth control pills, which worsened her IBS. The IBS resolved when she stopped taking the pill, leading to a fascination with the interconnectedness of the body and how hormones respond to women’s environment, food, and stress.
Many years later, after enduring a stressful time, Dr. Fenske experienced amenorrhea (loss of menstrual cycles). When the stress calmed, and her cycles returned, she realized she was in perimenopause and was inspired to learn more about the struggles every woman faces as her hormones change in mid-life. She made it her passion and career to be educated in different approaches to healthcare and wellbeing. Dr. Fenske is a dedicated physician who firmly believes in offering excellent and sound medical care to all of her patients. She understands that every patient has unique needs and preferences, and therefore, she always takes a patient-centered approach to healthcare.
Dr. Fenske’s training includes an accelerated medical program at Lehigh University and medical school at Drexel College of Medicine. She completed her residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Beth Israel Medical Center and a renowned fellowship in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, both in New York City. In addition, she completed training at the University of Arizona Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine , Institute of Functional Medicine and is a certified provider of the North American Menopause Society (NAMS). Dr. Fenske contributes to peer-reviewed research, news articles, and national conferences.
Dr. Fenske lives on Long Island, New York, with her daughters, husband, and dog, Lola. She loves reading, meditation, exercise, yoga, cooking and is passionate about continuous learning.
