Who are we?

FERTILITY CARE of Orange County is a specialty medical center established in 1997 to help patients who want to achieve healthy pregnancies. We are a team consisting of one board-certified M.D. and five on-site clinical support staff. The center is headed by medical director, C. Terence Lee M.D., who trained extensively in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at UCLA and Cedars Sinai and is a respected faculty member at the UC-Irvine Medical Center in the department of OB/GYN. Our well-trained supporting medical personnel have earned numerous compliments for their knowledge, professionalism and caring hearts and include graduates from UCI, UCLA and UC-Berkeley. We are allied with a team of seven embryology personnel with a combined 50+ years of experience in performing over 6000 IVF cycles. Our IVF procedures are performed personally by Dr. Lee in cooperation with board-certified anesthesiologists.

Our many satisfied patients include people who previously were unsuccessful in getting pregnant on their own and/or those who were unable to get pregnant after treatment with other reputable centers. We have also assisted many couples, who have previously suffered multiple miscarriages, go on to have happy outcomes. Besides getting referrals from past patients, we have received direct referrals from over 200 different doctors and other medical personnel.

Where are we?

We are located in Southern California, more specifically in the Brea - Fullerton area near the Brea Mall off the 57 freeway. While our patients primarily come from Orange County, San Bernardino County and Riverside County, we also have successfully served many patients from Los Angeles County, out-of-state or even out-of-country.

What is our philosophy and mission?

Our goal is to help couples take control of their own reproductive future and to help them conceive healthy babies as expeditiously, efficiently, economically and effectively as we can. We believe in careful individualized communication and education so that each couple has the right information to make their own intelligent personal decisions on the best treatment options for them specifically. We strive to maintain a degree of personal care that exceeds those found in larger, less personal environments, one that will consistently stand the test of time in side-by-side comparisons of pregnancy outcomes, patient convenience and patient confidence and satisfaction. This necessitates us sacrificing volume. But we accept that. Rather than try to process the most patients in the shortest time, we strive to give the best and most complete care to patients who choose to see us. We recognize that our patients have a choice of where they go for their medical care and we make sure we fully earn their confidence in choosing us.

What services do we provide?

Our services include expert EVALUATION of causes of infertility and the TREATMENT OF INFERTILITY with conventional methods (ovulation induction with fertility drugs and intrauterine insemination) as well as with high-tech methods such as IVF (In-Vitro Fertilization) and Frozen Embryo transfer. We also provide services of third party reproduction with oocyte donation (donor eggs) and donor sperm.

What makes us unique?

By limiting our IVF cycle volume to under 150 cycles per year, our patients can appreciate the elite privileges of a medium-volume practice such as convenient scheduling, significantly lower waiting room times and most importantly, better results because of more individualized special medical attention. Although we stress a team approach to treating infertility, over 99% of our provider-patient interactions, such as ultrasound examinations, insemination procedures, surgery and consultations are directly with the doctor rather than with an RN or mid-level provider.
