California Fertility Partners is credited with helping to make some of the world’s first IVF babies. Our babies are now 30. We have been helping gay men to have children through egg donation and surrogacy for the past two decades. The physicians and scientists at California Fertility Partners have dedicated their careers to helping patients build healthy and happy families. Our physicians are board certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and have established international reputations for their expertise in IVF,egg donation, surrogacy, and reproductive surgery. They attract patients from around the globe for their expertise in reproductive medicine. In addition to excelling in patient care, our team has made significant research contributions which have advanced the field of reproductive medicine. We believe that the best results can be obtained by providing personalized and individualized care to each of our patients. Each new patient is assigned a specially trained nurse to help provide care during the treatment cycle. All exams and procedures are performed by the patient’s personal physician. We believe this close and attentive care can help bring optimal outcomes.

Clinic reviews and comments

Response
(2001, USA parents) We used this clinic for both of our children, in both cases coming to them from clinics at which we did not have success. Guy Ringler was our doc, and we are still friendly with him.
(2005, International parents) Dr. Guy Ringler is the best docter you can get for this.
(2012, USA parents) DR RINGLER IS AMAZING
(2013, USA parents) Definitely recommend CFP. The staff was very helpful in enabling us to have our son. We became pregnant in both cycles, however our second journey yielded a healthy live singleton birth. CFP has very high standards which I think contributed to our success.
(2013, USA parents) Our clinic and specifically our RE helped us find a new Egg Donor via the Donor Concierge and then helped us find a new surrogate via a second surrogacy agency after our first disastrous journey.
(2017, International parents) A little bit more expensive than other clinics but really professional, personal and definitively worth it!
Dr. Ringler can come across as stoic but his factual approach ended up being so helpful. And his smile for us on transfer day warmed our hearts.

Our egg donor (same for both children) met the children soon after our second child was born and has remained a family friend ever since. She has two kids of her own, who my children adore, and we spend Halloween and other times together. 1
