Representatives of CHA Fertility Centers (CFC), one of the largest fertility treatment networks in the world, welcome the newest member of their staff, Dr. Joshua J. Berger. As of May 2016, Dr. Berger will serve as the Medical Director of the Los Angeles branch of the world-renowned facility.
Dr. Berger has received recognition for his research, his teaching and his patient care.

Previously, Dr. Berger was a partner in the Southern California Permanente Medical Group, where he received numerous patient care and service awards, headed committees that covered his interests in obesity research, culturally responsive care, and patient advocacy groups. While a resident at the Tufts University School of Medicine, the medical students selected him for the Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award from the Arnold P. Gold Foundation.
A Los Angeles native, Dr. Berger returned home to UCLA after his undergraduate studies at The Johns Hopkins University. He completed his PhD in Physiological Science and his MD degrees concurrently, and in his spare time, trained the athletic teams as the Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach. Dr. Berger completed his fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Dr. Berger’s areas of expertise include Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS); reproductive surgery; fertility preservation; diet, obesity, and exercise in fertility; and competitive athletes and infertility.
“We are excited about the addition of Dr. Berger to the CHA Fertility Center team,” said founder Dr. Kwang Yul Cha. “We feel confident that he will help grow the CFC LA branch of the clinic, helping patients struggling with infertility to achieve their family dreams.
