CFG was established in Los Angeles, California in 1987 by Dr. Michael Vermesh as the "USC Gynecology Group." The Center was relocated to Encino in 1990 where it was renamed the "Center for Fertility and Gynecology."
The newly renamed practice continued to enjoy exceptional success rates which helped to develop its reputation as one of the premiere fertility centers on the west coast. In 1996, the Center once again outgrew its physical plant and relocated to our current address at 18370 Burbank Blvd in Tarzana. With exceptional success rates and a willingness to treat even the most difficult cases, we have grown to become the largest fertility center in the San Fernando Valley, and have made tremendous strides in helping patients both locally and abroad, achieve their dreams of having families. In May of 2009, the office underwent its most recent reincarnation with a complete modernization and redecoration. The office now truly embodies the relaxed, professional and supportive manner in which we practice medicine.
We have remained and always will be true to our philosophy of providing cutting-edge medical care in an environment that supports each couple individually. Our physicians offer couples the best possible evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of both female and male infertility in a patient-oriented, supportive setting. Non-traditional families are welcomed.
