Meet Catherine DeUgarte of CMD Fertility in West Los Angeles and Westwood

Today we’d like to introduce you to Catherine DeUgarte.

Catherine, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in Romania and came to The USA at age 13. I have wanted to be a doctor since I was 3 years old. I did my college and medical School training at 7 year Boston University accelerated BA/MD program. I then moved to Los Angeles for OBGYN residency and Fellowship and 7 years later I became a reproductive endocrinologist & Infertility Specialist. After 2 years in Michigan at Henry Ford Hospital I returned to LA and after 7 years at PFCLA- Los Angeles started my own practice at CMD fertility in 2015.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
As an immigrant to this country it was difficult adjusting to a new language and culture at age 13. However my dream of becoming a doctor gave me fuel to continue the long journey that led me to where I am today. Along the way there have been many exams, board certifications and many hours of studying… The worst time was when I lost my dad (he died suddenly at age 60) when my daughter was only 9 months old. On top of being a very busy physician and running my own business I am also a mom of two fabulous children who keep me busy and it is sometimes a struggle making it to their school events, basketball, and soccer or dance practices and arranging transportation to and from birthday parties and play dates.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about CMD Fertility – what should we know?
