Identifying the Best Fertility Doctor in Los Angeles Can Be Challenging

You may feel uncertain what to look for in a physician. What traits should they have? How can you assess their ability to help people become parents? Here are a few things you should ask every fertility doctor you consider.

What Are Your Success Rates?

The best doctors will be forthcoming about their success rates for conceiving babies. We pride ourselves at Western Fertility Institute on our forthrightness on this topic. Dr. Kumar has an excellent success rate, with the majority of his patients getting pregnant.

What Services Do You Offer?

You need to know that your reproductive physician will consider every possible option to help you conceive. If a clinic offers only one or two possibilities, you should walk away. At Western Fertility Institute, Dr. Kumar provides patients with a wide range of options, from artificial insemination to in vitro fertilization.

Are You Comfortable With Gay and Lesbian Patients?

You want a doctor who accepts you for who you are. Dr. Kumar has worked with many same-sex couples to help them experience the joys of parenthood. He welcomes patients of all backgrounds and sexual orientations.

Will You Do Everything You Can to Help Me Become a Parent?

The best fertility doctor will continue to work with you until you achieve the most favorable outcome. They will not get discouraged, and they will attempt to keep your spirits up as well. They understand how frustrating and even sad fertility struggles can be. As a result, they stand by your side and keep trying — they won’t try to convince you to give up on your dream.

Dr. Kumar has done this for many patients, and he can do it for you too. That’s why he’s one of the best fertility doctors in Los Angeles.
