Dr. Shamonki is board certified in reproductive endocrinology and obstetrics and gynecology, and serves as Associate Clinical Professor at UCLA. He received his medical degree and OB/GYN residency at the University of Vermont. He completed his reproductive endocrinology and infertility fellowship at Cornell University, considered by many in the field as the premier fellowship in the country. After fellowship, Dr. Shamonki spent one year perfecting his skills at Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey, where he performed thousands of ultrasounds and procedures, providing him unique and high-volume training thereby giving him experience rivaling any clinician in the country. 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.”

Patient Testimonials

We can’t even begin to describe our gratitude to Dr. Shamonki for making our dreams come true. Struggling with fertility issues can be overwhelming and devastating, but Dr. Shamonki walked the journey with us every step of the way. His kindness, compassion and attention to detail was so appreciated, and truly changed our lives. We have two little miracles, thanks in large part to his dedication and commitment to us. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone going through fertility struggles, and in fact have referred two close friends. He treated them with the same phenomenal care that we received, and they now have miracles of their own. Dr. Shamonki is such a gift to the fertility world, and we are so grateful to have met him.

We had our first consultation with Dr. Shamonki at UCLA. He was very friendly and approachable from the first day we met him, which made us feel very comfortable. He provided us with a great deal of information and discussed all our options thoroughly. We tried 1 cycle of IVF but unfortunately it was not successful. While going through the treatment we had learned that Dr. Shamonki was leaving UCLA and joining Fertility and Surgical Associates. Because we had so much confidence in Dr. Shamonki and felt so comfortable with him, we decided to follow him to his new practice. We always felt like we were in good hands and could openly talk to him about all our concerns. He is very personable, knowledgeable, caring and an expert in his field. We decided to try another cycle of IVF with Dr. Shamonki at Fertility and Surgical Associates and this time we were blessed with success. Dr. Shamonki personally called me to inform me about the progress of our embryos after the egg retrieval and to give me updates about their progress. This made us feel that he really cared about the success of our treatment and we were just not another patient for him. I am currently 4 months pregnant with our first baby. We are very thankful to Dr. Shamonki for everything that he has done for us. The staff at Fertility and Surgical Associates were also very friendly and helpful. We are thankful to all the staff, nurses and embryologists that were involved in our care. They all made this difficult process very pleasant.
