Dr. Daniel Rychlik

Fertility Specialist

An internationally recognized fertility specialist, I have given lectures across the globe and have been helping people achieve their dreams of building a family for over a decade. I am double board-certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Obstetrics and Gynecology and hold admitting privileges at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. I also work closely with urology specialists to treat severe male factor infertility.

I have constructed, cultivated, and expanded multiple infertility clinics around the country, and have served as a mentor for other fertility specialists and have teaching experience at all levels, from medical students to fellows to colleagues.

I received my BS, MD, and residency at the University of Illinois, and moved on to complete a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the prestigious University of Chicago's Pritzker School of Medicine. I was one of the first private practice physicians to receive the prestigious CREST scholarship, in conjunction with ASRM, Duke University and the NIH (Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health) and received a degree in clinical statistics from Duke University.

Before relocating to California, I taught the next generation of doctors as a clinical professor at the University of Chicago, clinical assistant professor at University of Arizona, George Washington University, and Virginia Commonwealth University.

During my time in Arizona, I served as the President and Medical Director of Fertility Centers of Arizona and the President of the Phoenix OB/GYN Society.

I have treated thousands of patients across the world for a variety of fertility issues, with a special focus on Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and premature ovarian failure.
