HRC Fertility Center Adds Hakman and Wertheimer to Roster of Award-Winning Physicians

LOS ANGELES--()--HRC Fertility Center, one of the largest providers of advanced fertility treatments based in Southern California, today announced the addition of Sasha Hakman, MD and Sahar Wertheimer, MD, to its team of award-winning physicians. Effective immediately, Dr. Hakman and Dr. Wertheimer, both highly sought-after Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialists, have joined the center’s West Los Angeles office.

Dr. Hakman has a longstanding family and personal history of infertility and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Her experience as both a doctor and a patient who has successfully undergone IVF aligns effortlessly with HRC’s mission to provide extraordinary patient care.

Dr. Hakman is a subject matter expert for the American Board of OB-GYN, and serves as HRC Fertility’s baby center medical advisor. She is responsible for reviewing all published consumer-facing content about pregnancy and fertility. Dr. Hakman has received numerous research awards across prominent conferences around the U.S.

As an outspoken advocate for women, Dr. Wertheimer is highly engaged with the Jewish Orthodox Women in Medicine Association, where she serves as president. She is passionate about increasing access to education in the community and the overall awareness of women’s health, fertility and self-advocacy.

Her 360-degree holistic approach encompasses several phases, including preconception wellness, fertility and conception support, pregnancy, and postpartum care – sometimes even incorporating Eastern medicine, where possible and beneficial.

Dr. Wertheimer is the proud recipient of numerous awards, such as the Jewish Orthodox Women in Medicine Association’s Excellence in Leadership and The Davidoff Teaching Award (while in residency). As a notable thought leader in the industry, she recently contributed to HRC Fertility’s #Fertility Facts vs. Fiction campaign to debunk the misconceptions that Gen Z and Millennials are hearing about fertility on social media.

“At HRC, our team is composed of smart, out-of-the-box thinkers that are constantly on the hunt to discover new ways to offer the best possible care for our patients,” said Tamar Knoller, Executive Director of Patient Experience at HRC Fertility Center. “With Dr. Hakman and Dr. Wertheimer on board, we are confident that we are bringing together an undeniable combination of intelligence, experience, empathy, and passion, which is bound to have great outcomes for our patients.”
