Steven Deserre, CNM

Steven is a native of northern NYS, having relocated to the Capital region in 1987 after living and working in Houston, Texas for several years. He developed an interest in obstetrics and women’s health care after witnessing the birth of his first child in 1980. Upon graduation in 1981 Steve commenced working in labor and delivery at several hospitals over the next 20 years in various levels from low risk to Albany Medical Center’s level 3 transfer center. This long love of OB nursing fostered the start of his current career as a Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM) in 1998. Being a CNM has allowed Steve to participate in the whole childbearing process; as well as, promoting women’s GYN wellness and family planning needs. He sees his role as providing safe, effective, comprehensive and professional care in support of a woman’s physical, emotional and educational/ informational needs with respect to their spectrum of health care from birth to menopause.

Steven resides in the Glenville area with his wife of 33 years, Lisa and three feisty Chihuahuas. He is the father of 3 young adult children, 2 married daughters (Megan & Courtney) and a son (Alec) in college. He became the proud grandfather to a grandson, Lucas last year, and is enjoying this new role like no other.

Steven holds a diploma in Registered Nursing from St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center School of Nursing and Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from Excelsior College. He holds a certificate in Certified Nurse Midwifery from Frontier Nursing University.
