Listen to Dr. Fleischman Speaking Intimately with her Patients

These women shared such a special experience with Dr. Fleischman and offered to share their story

“I wish my everyday doctor visits were like this. I have never felt like such a human!”
“I really wish everyone who needs to terminate a pregnancy can have such a nice, comforting, reassuring, liberating experience.”
“It really felt like I was at my regular doctor, getting a very regular procedure done!”

Dr. Joan Fleischman has been an advocate for integrating abortion care into primary care medicine for nearly 30 years. She was also one of the original researchers of the abortion pill. Inspired by public health work in India, Malaysia, and Bangladesh before medical school, she went on to get her M.D. at Harvard Medical School and M.P.A at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.

As a faculty member at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, Dr. Fleischman initiated a grant-funded program to train family doctors in early abortion methods; the Early Options Training and Research Center. In 2000, this was the first abortion training program for family doctors. Tens of thousands of patients have since walked through her doors, and the Early Options office has been open since 1999.

Partnerships

Dr. Fleischman co-founded MYA Network, linking patients directly to primary care clinicians. She continues to fiercely advocate for integrated abortion services and combating misinformation about this medical care.
