Alta Bates IVF Program


This is our second round at IVF following the successful birth of our first daughter, now age 4. I have nothing but praise and admiration for the venerable Dr. Chetkowski and his staff, and consider ourselves fortunate to have such expertise available in the East Bay.

We maintain an open-door policy that welcomes patients from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. We are mindful, non-judgmental and we work hard to balance the interests of all the parties involved: the intended parents, their future children, egg donors and surrogates. We believe that successful patient-doctor relationships are based on mutual trust and that authenticity matters.

We do not limit your pursuit of a family on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or a low likelihood of success. We provide you with clear information about your options and chances of success as well as the physical, psychological and financial costs of each option, so that you can make informed decisions about your care.


We offer our program to residents of Berkeley, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, the Bay Area and neighboring communities.

Itís All About Creating Families

"Patients are my partners. Together we have been making their dreams come true since 1984." ~Dr. Richard Chetkowski
