She has more than 200 publications in peer-reviewed journals to her credit. While Dr. Coulam cares for patients with all reproductive disorders, she has special expertise in the area of Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, and is an internationally-sought speaker on the topic as well as issues involving reproductive immunology.
