HRC Fertility Opens a Newport Beach Office

State-of-the-art Laboratory is the most advanced in the United States

Los Angeles, CA, January 25, 2012 - HRC Fertility, the leading fertility clinic on the West Coast and one of the largest providers of advanced fertility treatments in the United States, has added a new location in Newport Beach.  The Newport Beach office is located at 500 Superior Avenue, Suite 210.

The world famous Professor Barry Behr of Stanford University helped design and will serve as Laboratory Director of the Newport Beach facility which houses the most advanced in vitro fertilization laboratory in the United States.  The laboratory is the first in the United States to utilize the highly advanced Labotech C-Top technology from Germany.

“We are extremely excited about this cutting-edge lab.  We have spared no expense in creating the most advanced laboratory possible to optimize IVF success rates for our patients. As an example, the air handling system available in our embryology laboratory with pressurized, clean-room technology was designed by the renowned environmental engineer Antonia Gilligan PhD,” said Dr. Daniel Potter, MD, FACOG at HRC Fertility. “We have two fully equipped operating rooms in our dedicated surgery center with laminar air floor to eliminate airborne contaminates. Our lab is also unique in that patients can observe the embryologists at work through walls of glass.”

Three fertility doctors serve patients at the fertility clinic in Newport Beach. Mickey S. Coffler, MD, FACOGJane L. Frederick, MD, FACOG; and Daniel A. Potter, MD, FACOG, diagnose and treat patients for a wide variety of conditions that result in infertility, such as endometriosis, menstrual abnormalities, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and polyps and fibroids. The fertility doctors use the most advanced reproductive technology and fertility treatments help patients achieve their family-building dreams.

Dr. Jane Frederick explains "By opening the Newport Beach office we are able to help more couples reach their dreams of having a family. We could not be more excited about the opportunity to use new and innovative technologies to assist each couple with their individual needs." 

For more than 23 years, HRC Fertility has helped thousands of couples achieve their dreams of having a family with the help of fertility treatments and assisted reproduction technology.
