Welcome From Kristen Fields, PA-C, Physician Assistant
I have a very long family history of medicine. My mother, maternal aunt and maternal grandmother are all nurses, and seeing them work day-to-day developed my interest in medicine. While I originally went to school for business, I knew what I really wanted to do was pursue medicine.
I first learned of the physician assistant profession when I moved to Philadelphia. A coworker of mine was about to start her physician assistant education, and she told me everything about it. From that conversation, I knew it was the career for me. Becoming a physician assistant gives me the opportunity to work directly with you, while also giving me the flexibility to learn and grow within medicine. Though I have found my area of interest at RAD, I enjoy knowing the sky’s the limit in what I can do.
Before coming to RAD, I worked in a private OB/GYN office in New York. During my time there, I frequently met women with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and other fertility challenges. Working with these women, I became fascinated with reproductive endocrinology and wanted to learn more.
At RAD, I enjoy working directly with you throughout the infertility process, and explaining different treatment options during a consultation. Another passion of mine is performing the procedures we do at RAD. I’m a very hands-on person, and I get a better understanding of the way the world works by interacting with it. I love being the person who explains the expected and actual findings of the procedures because I know it can help you understand and connect more with this process.
While at RAD, I also want to raise awareness that we support LGBT couples in their family building. As an LGBT individual, I know it is difficult to find places to go where you can be welcome, so showing that RAD welcomes all different families is very important to me. I’m very excited to join RAD as a physician assistant and be able to help the men and women who see us with their family building goals.

Where You Go For Fertility Care Really Matters
For over two decades, we have followed the golden rule of fertility care: offering the same treatment to you that we would want for our friends and loved ones.
"We had a wonderful experience working with Reproductive Associates of Delaware. Our doctor was so sweet, informative and helpful with all of our questions. The front desk, it’s always nice to be greeted by a friendly smiling face."
"RAD heard my hopes, dreams, and wishes and led me toward them while holding my hand. My dream came true. I was guided to a beautiful baby girl! It took less than a year for my pregnancy to begin and it was successful. This was the best decision I ever made. Thank you, RAD!"
"From the beginning our team was determined to find a way for my husband and I to complete our family. All the RAD staff was knowledgeable and truly cared for us. We wish we could have continued with them after our baby hit 12 weeks. We thank them daily in our prayers for giving us our beautiful baby girl!"
"We will be forever grateful for the wonderful care we received at RAD! Dr. Feinberg took the time to listen and create a plan we were comfortable with. The whole team was amazing and truly care about their patients. You have exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!"
"Thanks to Reproductive Associates of Delaware, we have the most perfect addition to our family. The help and support the whole staff gave us was indescribable. We never once lost hope because of them. We will be forever grateful to each and every person we worked with during our journey."
"Dr. Neithardt was amazing. She explained in great detail all the options we had and put us at ease about the entire process. Everyone has been amazing and I have absolutely no complaints. Today I am 17 weeks pregnant and we only have Dr. Neithardt and her wonderful team at RAD to thank."
"They are the most amazing team of doctors and care coordinators. After having started at another facility I was so happy to come to RAD. They are truly amazing, never make you feel like just a number and have empathy and compassion every step of the way. They also get the job done! Thanks RAD!"
"Dr. McGuirk is a very holistic doctor. She doesn’t just treat the fertility issues. She also points out personal health ideas (juicing, whole 30) to help heal/treat the whole patient. She is honest and open. Be open minded and trust in her process. This is a marathon, not a sprint! Dr. McGuirk will be with you the whole way."
"I will never be able to put into words how thankful we are for RAD. Rhonda was there every step of the way as we were going through the process. Everyone was so welcoming and patient as we asked questions. We were blessed with a daughter, who is now three. I have already recommended and will continue to recommend RAD to people who need help growing their family!"
"There are not enough kind words to say about RAD generally, and Dr. Bachman specifically. My personal well-being was always at the core of my treatment. I received honest, straight-forward advice that empowered me to make my own decisions. And thanks to RAD I have the family I always dreamed of."
