Our California Fertility Doctors
A fertility doctor (reproductive endocrinologist) should be consulted early in the course of infertility treatment. According to standards set by the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM), women less than 35 years of age who have unsuccessfully been trying to conceive for one year are considered infertile. Most infertility doctors shorten this time to six months in women aged 35 and older.
Infertility specialists complete residency training in obstetrics and gynecology. After this training, they are required to complete an accredited Fellowship program in reproductive endocrinology and infertility to become a Reproductive Endocrinologist (RE). The Fellowship is usually completed within three years and includes extensive research and clinical experience in diagnosing and designing appropriate treatment for infertility, administering in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles, laparoscopic surgery and many other areas. Fertility doctors also undergo advanced training in performing delicate microsurgical procedures.
The infertility specialists at HRC fertility focus on the evaluation and treatment of infertility. Our physicians always recommend the therapy most likely to result in pregnancy while considering other factors, such as cost. Our staff page links to the biographies and qualifications of each of our fertility doctors.
