Fertility Institute of San Diego

Practice Overview

Welcome to Fertility Institute of San Diego, your world-class Fertility Institute, where our practice philosophy is to treat each patient as we would our own family members. We think you are special and as a result you are treated as such.

Why We Are Different…
We take great pride in being a “boutique” practice, where a single physician who knows everything about your case treats you, is there for all of your visits and will perform all of your ultrasounds and procedures including egg retrievals and embryo transfers. We combine cutting-edge Western medicine with Eastern alternatives such as acupuncture.

We believe what truly sets us apart is this nurturing environment coupled with the most advanced state-of-the-art IVF facility which is at the forefront of technology. We believe that you deserve the very best and we spare no expense from being the first program in the United States to have the most technologically advanced laminar flow hood, the first program in San Diego County to have our sophisticated high-tech ultrasound machine and the first program in San Diego to have the most comprehensive IVF electronic health medical records. Our outstanding ambulatory Surgery Center, which is located in our office, is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). Anesthesia is administered by our experienced and licensed anesthetists.

Our unparalleled success rate is also due to our skilled physician and experienced team. Dr. Hosseinzadeh’s over 25 years experience along with her commitment to do what is best for the patients makes her uniquely qualified to take care of you. Her many years of experience gives her the ability to tailor, synchronize and coordinate the cycles of donors, surrogates and the intended parent in order to simplify the process for patients who are required to travel to our center. Our dedicated and compassionate team of embryologists has over 65 years experience. They are at the forefront of technology and are masters of all the newest and latest techniques and advances in our field.

You may wonder what drives Dr. Hosseinzadeh and her equally passionate staff. It is the fact that the she loves what she does and feels blessed to be able to make a difference in people’s lives. To be able to hold a baby that was once an embryo in our lab is truly the greatest gift of life. We look forward to participating in the journey of growing your families two feet at a time.
