In 2006 Dr. Shamonki joined his alma mater UCLA and, as Director of In-Vitro Fertilization and Assisted Reproduction, quickly developed the IVF Program at UCLA into a center of excellence. He has published numerous papers and has won several awards, including the Carbee Award for excellence in OB/GYN, the Patients’ Choice Award and America’s Top Doctors Award. In his words, “I had the great fortune of growing up learning about reproductive medicine through the eyes of my father, Dr. Issa Shamonki, who was one of the pioneers in the field. I hope to continue his legacy by providing care of the highest quality, with great compassion and consideration.” If you would like to view a copy of Dr. Shamonkis' resume, click here.
