Our Doctors

Kent F. Argubright

M.D. FACOG

As a fellowship-trained maternal-fetal medicine physician, board- certified obstetrician-gynecologist, and board-certified medical geneticist, my aim is to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care to the most special, complicated, and fragile of pregnancies. This includes diagnosis, counseling, support, and medical treatment for the entire range of unique prenatal and family needs. Over the years, my greatest personal and professional reward has been to see all the patients and families that have benefited from our team of dedicated professionals.

Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your family, too.

Gary A. Aisenbrey

M.D. FACOG

As a board-¬certified obstetrician-gynecologist with certification in maternal-¬fetal medicine, it has been my pleasure to provide special care for women during their pregnancies. Evaluating difficult pregnancies and formulating a compassionate, well-researched treatment plan is a true privilege. There’s no greater personal reward than working together to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your baby. At Perinatal Associates of New Mexico you can expect the most comprehensive evaluation and care. Our practice has four maternal-¬fetal medicine specialists that bring more than 75 collective years of experience addressing obstetric problems.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you have the smoothest, most rewarding pregnancy possible.

Gary M. Joffe

MD, FACOG

Growing up in a small town in New Mexico, I was inspired to pursue a career in maternal and fetal medicine by the caring local obstetricians I worked with in high school and college, and by my mentors at the University of New Mexico – Dr. Gary Aisenbrey and Dr. Kent Argubright. After completing my fellowship in Maternal and Fetal Medicine at UNM, I joined Perinatal Associates of New Mexico in 1999.

At PANM, we are committed to providing you the highest quality care and delivering this service with a personal touch. We are blessed to have a staff that really takes the time to get to know you while providing the best service available in the Southwest.

Thank you for allowing us to share in your prenatal care. I look forward to meeting you!

Michael S. Ruma

MD, MPH, FACOG

As a board–certified maternal–fetal medicine specialist, my top priority is caring for patients with a high–risk pregnancy. Helping women overcome medical, surgical, or obstetrical problems with optimal care during their pregnancy is a great joy for me. I joined Perinatal Associates of New Mexico in 2008 after completing my fellowship training in Maternal–Fetal Medicine at the University of North Carolina. A native of Omaha, Neb., I received my MD from Creighton University School of Medicine and stayed at Creighton to complete my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do to improve your care while you’re with us at Perinatal Associates of New Mexico. I look forward to meeting you!

 

Matthew Brennan

M.D.

I spent five years after residency training as an obstetrician and gynecologist; I split that time between Alaska and New Mexico. During those years I delivered many babies, won numerous teaching awards and discovered an interest in caring for women with high risk pregnancies. Helping women and their families deal with the complexities and problems that can affect pregnancy is my top priority. I joined PANM in January 2013 after completing my fellowship training in MFM at the University of New Mexico.

I am always available and seeking ways to improve our care.
