LOS ANGELES, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Pacific Reproductive Center (PRC), a southern California fertility clinic celebrating its fifteenth anniversary, welcomes to its team Dr. Alison Peck, a board-certified, multi-lingual and internationally educated and trained specialist in reproductive endocrinologist and infertility (REI).
A native of Tarzana, Dr. Peck graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a bachelor's degree in Spanish, followed by an M.D. degree from Tel Aviv University.
For Dr. Peck, who speaks fluent Spanish, inspiration to enter reproductive medicine came at a young age.
"After my first appointment with a gynecologist, I realized that there were not enough women in medicine and that such a sensitive field deserved sensitive physicians," she says. "During medical school I was motivated by training in a department that saw a high volume of patients with fertility problems. I wanted to be a part of helping bring the gift of family into the world."
"We are fortunate to have a physician of Dr. Peck's abilities on board," says Dr. Rifaat Salem, PRC founder and one of California's most experienced fertility doctors. "Her clinical proficiency, infectious enthusiasm and extraordinarily supportive personality will make her a big hit with patients."
Because infertility is a medical condition with significant emotional impact, Dr. Peck says, an effective doctor must be invested in both the physical and mental well being of patients.
"What we do medically to treat infertility goes hand in hand with a patient's psychological experience," she says. "For most patients, knowledge and awareness are calming. They must be psychologically invested in believing success can and will happen, and that starts with an understanding of the process."
Dr. Peck will see patients in PRC's Glendale and Torrance offices and is available for appointments at 866-423-2645.
