About

Bio

I am currently practicing Reproductive Medicine in the State of California. Our practice provides our patients with all of the latest medical technologies available today. We provide fertility treatments like IVF, IUI, AI, ovulation induction, reproductive surgery, tubal reanastamosis, Hysteroscopic correction of uterine scar tissue. We also provide our patients with genetic testing that allows the intended parents to learn which of their embryos are chromosomally normal. This allows them to have the assurance that their pregnancy will not have conditions like Downs Syndrome, Turners Syndrome and others.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
