Accepting new patients. Referral may be required.
Welcome to my Web page. I am a board-certified physician in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. I am currently the director of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center. I’m also a clinical associate professor in the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the USC Keck School Of Medicine.
I completed my fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Pennsylvania in 2002. While there, I focused my research on several aspects of infertility and had several articles published. I attended medical school at the American University of Beirut in Lebanon, where I graduated with distinction, and then completed my residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Wright State University, in Dayton, Ohio. I worked as director of infertility at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, from 2005 to 2010 before I joined Kaiser Permanente.
I concentrate on helping couples with fertility problems. I also help women who have problems with fibroids, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, diminished ovarian reserve, and tubal problems, and men with low sperm counts. I believe that the most important part of infertility treatment is giving good counseling—not only about the medical treatment itself but also about the psychological and financial impact of infertility on couples enduring it. I practice infertility treatment like everything else I do in life—with plenty of compassion and positive energy.
I speak fluent French and Arabic (Lebanese). I love to travel, and I enjoy international music and reading about the history of old civilizations and religions. I exercise four times a week at the ocean, and I love to walk on the beach.
