I originally came just to freeze my eggs and ended up going through the freezing plus a full ivf cycle. I cannot say... enough great things about Dr. Chung. She was so nice through the entire process, listened and answered every question my husband and I had. Also, she made my husband feel a part of the process even though he wasn’t physically allowed in the room. Two of my other close friends were freezing at the same time and had the same experience. We are now expecting our first baby, and can’t thank Dr Chung enough for guiding us through the process. She stayed with us from egg freezing, implantation up until 10 weeks. If I could have seen her my entire pregnancy I would have. I also want to say that Joy her nurse is equally as kind and caring. All the other nurses were nice, but Joy went over the top for us. The best combo (Joy and Dr Chung) you could find in La!read more

She ended up moving to a clinic on the west side during our journey but our experience with her was absolutely fantastic. We highly recommend Dr Chung.read more

One of the most challenging experiences of our lives, and never for a second did we regret our decision to go with Dr.... Chung. From our first meeting, she was attentive, empathetic, gave us extremely realistic expectations, and kept us hopeful and positive.Over the near 3 years of working extremely close w/ Dr. Chung, we had maybe a thousand correspondences, enduring middle-of-the-night crisis, gut-wrenching outcomes and the lowest of lows news. Dr. Chung was with us through it all. I am so grateful that my wife was under her care. We were rewarded a few months ago with our beautiful baby girl. Every time we look at her we know how fortunate we are, and Dr. Chung's impact on our lives.read more

Dr. Bill Yee

Dr Bill Yee-IVF-Doctor-Los Angeles

It’s a very difficult and daunting task to choose the right fertility specialist. I believe there are four factors that are involved. The first is the success rate. I think your doctor’s IVF program should have success well above the national average rate, second I think is the experience and stability your doctor has. Third I believe ethics are the guidelines of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine followed and finally, I think probably the most important factor that your doctor has listened to you and understands your infertility needs. Not everybody is in IVF.”
