Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.

We started egg donation on the West Coast, and published all of the early studies on older women conceiving with this treatment option. We then became experts in natural cycle IVF, which continues to be a personal area of interest. And we were the first program on the West Coast to incorporate oocyte cryopreservation into our practice. We perform over 100 egg freezing procedures annually.
I started USC Fertility in 1986. All of our early egg retrievals were done by laparoscopy. Ultrasound guided egg retrievals started in 1987! I have personally performed over 3000 egg retrieval procedures and embryo transfer procedures since then.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

I am the Director of USC Fertility, a practice which I started in 1986. I am also the Director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Keck School of Medicine at USC. Since 1986, I have been involved in the training of over 50 fertility specialists; if your doctor did fertility subspecialty training in Southern California, there is a 50% chance they trained at USC, and I was one of their mentors. I am a clinician, but also conduct clinical research in infertility; I have authored over 150 publications in the field and have delivered over 200 invited lectures and seminars all over the United States and the world. The treatment of infertility is my passion and my life.
I'm passionate about infertility and about patient care. Infertility is a devastating condition. To me, every patient's journey to fertility is a journey we take together. If we persevere, and make the right decisions, success will be ours. My approach is to review all the details of the case, and come up with a plan as well as alternatives and options. The patient gets to make the decision of how we proceed, but the patient needs to have the latest information and data interpreted in order to make an informed decision. Once we decide on a course of action, I guide the patient through the various steps to make sure everything goes as well as is humanly possible. And we succeed where others fail. Many patients come after failing elsewhere; I like the challenge.
