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.
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.
