Dr. Sonja Kristiansen, MD
In 1996 she realized her dream of starting her own infertility center by founding Houston Fertility Center where she serves as the Medical Director. Her goal in establishing this clinic and her own private practice "Where Women Specialize in the Care of Women" was to provide couples complete and comprehensive infertility treatment in a compassionate, private environment that was easily accessible and affordable. Recognizing most couples work and therefore have demanding schedules, she offers early morning appointments (7:00 am) for patients undergoing treatment. This allows most patients to be at work any where in Houston by 9:00 am. Having completed more than 1000 IVF cycles with pregnancy rates that compare well nationally, Houston Fertility Center is now utilized by several other Reproductive Endocrinologists in the Houston area. Dr. Kristiansen is well published, participating in many speaking engagements relating to infertility and is frequently used as a resource by the news media. Dr. Kristiansen is a fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, the American Medical Association, the Texas Medical Society, and the Harris County Medical Society.

Spring, TX |
I need to review and report that I lost my left fallopian tube during my ectopic pregnancy rupture while under her care following IVF treatment from her. She misdiagnosed my condition as a non-viable pregnancy and cleared me as "safe", the next day I passed out from internal bleeding and had to have an emergency operation to remove the ectopic pregnancy along with my fallopian tube. They almost had to remove my ovary, but Dr. Dogan was able to save it.

Dr. K and her staff are very professional and offer compassionate care. They readily take your phone calls(no matter how much anxious patients call) and remember your medical history and personal situations. The staff are always very supportive and and encouraging at every visit.

Office staff failed to submit claim within first 12 months of service, later imposed that burden on us. We went to office to discuss & negotiate the payment. They threatened us, they will call COPS and said we have no other option but to pay the amount, though it is their mistake. Insurance clearly mentioned procedures performed were 100% covered, only reason for denial is late submission. Really disappointed with such rude behavior of staff, for sure they have support from Dr. Kristiansen.
