Trusted Experts in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
You will receive exceptional care from the fertility specialists at PAMF Fertility Physicians of Northern California.
All of our doctors have completed residency programs in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/Gyn) as well as fellowship programs in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI), a subspecialty of OB/Gyn. They are Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
With their fellowship training, including specialization in reproductive surgery and hormonal functioning, our Reproductive Endocrinologists (RE’s) have the most advanced training and education available for reproductive medicine and the treatment of infertility. Our clinical, nursing and laboratory staff is also composed of highly trained experts.
Our doctors are very involved in their field, teaching in regional universities and medical centers, conducting research, and publishing and presenting frequently on topics related to infertility. They also serve as members in national organizations that monitor and set the standards for reproductive medicine, including the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
Our andrology and embryology laboratories are under the direction of Board Certified High Complexity Laboratory Director in Human Embryology and Andrology Dr. Marina Gvakharia. Under Dr. Gvakharia's guidance, the in vitro fertilization laboratory at PAMF FPNC has received CAP/ASRM accreditation with zero deficiencies—the highest (and most difficult to achieve) merit for IVF laboratories—for the last six reviews.
The embryology team performs patient services under the direction of Dr. Marina Gvakharia. Our embryologists are Sue Lee, Ayca Cubukcu, Lonyl Palao, Wana Popal and Diana Quinonez. They are fully trained and highly skilled professionals, who are dedicated to excellence in patient and embryo care.
