In 2006 Dr. Shamonki joined UCLA and, as Director of In Vitro Fertilization and Assisted Reproduction, developed the UCLA IVF Program into a premier IVF Center. Dr. Shamonki has published numerous papers and has won several awards, including the Carbee Award for excellence in obstetrics and gynecology, 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. Each day I would see him come home from work happy and fulfilled, having done his best for each and every patient while demonstrating warmth, kindness and attention to detail. I hope to continue his legacy by providing care of the highest quality, with great compassion and consideration."
