We had a very positive outcome with the egg donor procedure due to the exceptional level of professionalism, clinical excellence and expertise of Dr. Danzer and his staff. Everyone was consistently kind and compassionate, providing soothing, nurturing comfort and support throughout the entire egg donor/IVF process.

Dr. Danzer has been a longtime expert on women’s health issues. He has co-authored books on Natural Family Planning and Premenstrual Syndrome.  He has also authored numerous publications in peer-reviewed journals such as Fertility and Sterility and the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology

As a fertility researcher, Dr. Danzer is interested in strategies that enhance a patient’s chances of having a successful pregnancy, reduce the potential for miscarriages, lower the risk of genetic disorders and avoid the complications associated with multiple births.  He believes that for most in vitro fertilization (IVF) patients under 35 years old, single embryo transfers are optimal, and that these can best be achieved by pairing expert skills with advanced technologies.

Dr. Danzer was named on of the Top 10 Fertility Specialists in the country by Parent Magazine. He has served as an expert on television and for legel proceedings, as well as a consultant for the Department of Consumer Affairs regarding women's health and reproductive endocrinology.

People dealing with fertility and its challenges are sometimes given several medical options to consider. Dr. Danzer helps his patients become familiar with different modes of treatment, including how to transition from a strategy they may have already pursued to another with a greater likelihood of success.  He also finds that alternative therapies such as acupuncture can have positive results in some patients.

Reducing stress improves pregnancy rates, and Dr. Danzer finds that the personalized continuity of care approach at the Southern California Reproductive Center helps to reduce anxiety and create a sense of confidence that his patients appreciate.

Dr. Danzer earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of San Francisco and his medical degree from the St. Louis University School of Medicine.  Following his internship at the University of Southern California Medical Center, he pursued his residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he earned a Fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology.

Dr. Danzer and his wife, a psychologist, reside in Brentwood, California with their two teenage children.
