Dr. Guy Ringler, California Fertility Partners

California Fertility Partners has a unique history: They helped create some of the world's first IVF babies!

In fact, the clinic's first baby was the world's sixth born through IVF, which is why many of the clinic's babies now have children of their own.

Dr. Ringler, partner of California Fertility Partners, is recognized globally as a leading fertility doctor.

More than that, however, as a gay man Dr. Ringler is personally committed to helping members of the LGBTQ community build families. He's proud to point out that since their launch in 1988, California Fertility Partners has always supported LGBTQ family building, rightfully giving them pioneer status among their peers.

California Fertility Partners' new state-of-the-art facility demonstrates their commitment to providing the most advanced reproductive care in a personalized manner, assuring their continued status as one of the world's leading centers for fertility care.

Our Key People

Dr. Guy Ringler is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

"Over the last 25 years, it has been a career highlight to help so many LGBTQ people from around the world have kids. 

I work seven days a week, bringing three decades of experience making sure each and every patient receives personalized care from me and my entire team."

Ashley Woods, RN

"I primarily work with the LGBTQ community, helping intended parents from the beginning of their journey to the very end, addressing any concerns or needs that may arise.

By the time of the pregnancy, I've already been working with the patients for months, spending so much time with them that I cannot help but get close to each and every one of them. Once their baby arrives, it truly brings me so much joy, which is what I love about my job!"

Miriam Kaplan, Finance Manager

"As finance manager I help our patients understand the treatment costs, and can provide advice on ways to manage costs during the process.

I'm also gay, and growing up I didn't realize I could one day become a parent. I'm excited to let you know that my partner and I are starting our own journey to creating a family, so I can certainly relate to the excitement and challenges our patients face." 

Robyn O'Leary, IVF Lab Manager

"My main role is to take care of all the embryos in our laboratory - to give them the best environment to grow and develop.  I make myself available to our intended parents to provide updates and answer their questions.

Working with each patient is different, as everyone has different sensitivities and areas of concern or interest. This serves as an important reminder to me to take a step back and listen carefully to each patient to make sure I'm supportive of his individual needs. This is all part of our approach to providing personal care."

Juan Tecles, International Coordinator

"As International Coordinator, I get to help gay men from around the world find the best customized care for their specific circumstances so they can realize their own dreams of fatherhood.

I have had the great pleasure and honor to meet and work with so many different LGBTQ people from many different countries.  

I'm a gay father myself, and I cannot possibly imagine a more rewarding professional career!"
