The Staff of The MacLeod Laboratory

                                                                         Dr. Attila Toth, M.D.
Dr. TothThe director and primary physician of the MacLeod Laboratory is Dr. Attila Toth, who is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and Obstetrics and Gynecology. He has forty years of experience treating infectious diseases and infertility. He is a clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill-Cornell Medical Center and the protégé of Dr. John MacLeod, a pioneer in male infertility, who set the currently accepted standards for evaluating seminal fluid.

Dr. Toth is the first physician to emphasize the correlation between gynecological and urological infections and the importance of treating the couple as a unit when addressing infertility problems. Successful treatment of genital tract infections, in either sex, requires a full knowledge of pathological changes, abnormalities detectable through sonography examination and clinical symptoms the abnormal bacterium flora is creating. He offers a unique approach for the treatment of these infections locally within the reproductive tracts of both males and females and is the premier physician offering direct injections of antibiotics for the treatment of prostatitis. With over 50 publications in prestigeous journals, Dr. Toth is a world renowned authority on infectious causes of infertility and their respective treatments.

Since the late 70's the treatment of infertility quickly been moving from identifying the underlying causes of infertility to the use of artificial reproductive technologies, including in vitro fertilization (IVF), often with suboptimal outcome for both mother and baby. By recognizing the significance of bacterial infections as the main underlying cause of infertility, we at the Macleod laboratory maintained the approach of eliminating these infections with the goal of restoring a couple's ability to conceive naturally. With this approach we are rewarded with healthy pregnancies, uncomplicated deliveries and healthy babies.

Dr.Toth spends a great deal of time exploring all aspects of his patient's medical condition, carefully explaining his proposed therapy while remaining mindful of the sensitive emotional and highly personal nature of their medical problems. Dr.Toth's research and clinical success have garnered an international following with doctor and patient referrals from around the world. His cutting edge research on prostatitis is ongoing and current data showing a significant improvement in PSA (prostate specific antigen) levels in a number of patients after successful antibiotic treatment is especially encouraging.
