About Author

DR. FELICE GERSH
“A breakthrough program to heal
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome naturally”

I’m very proud to have been recognized for my work. I have been awarded the Orange County Medical Association’s ‘Physician of the Year’ Award for the last 13 years consecutively, and Southern California’s ‘SuperDoctor’ Award for the last several years.

In my role as a physician-teacher, I served as Assistant Clinical Professor of OB/GYN at Keck USC School of Medicine for 12 years, for which I was awarded the Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award.

I also serve my medical community, and have been active in organized medicine; I have served on the Legislative Committee at the Orange County Medical Association and as a delegate to the California Medical Association numerous times.

My primary job is Director of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, which focuses on understanding women’s innate physical and emotional make-up.

Through my research, using state-of-the-art procedures and technology, I have come to understand that women have an internal natural rhythm.

This rhythm is affected by hormones, namely estrogen, and may be kept in balance through both conventional and holistic treatments.

While pharmaceuticals deal with symptoms, they can also disrupt the body’s natural ability to heal and affect women’s reproductive functions.

At the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, we help our patients understand what drugs can and can’t do for the body to enable them to take control of their health.

Outside of my practice, I speak at various lectures, host webinars and appear on numerous podcasts.

I’m a prolific writer on numerous topics relevant to women’s health.

I am also currently writing my first book, on PCOS, which is due to be released in the fall.

My goal is to provide the very best care for my patients, using every tool available, and to teach doctors around the world about the importance of creating a healthy environment within the female body.

“In her new book on menopause, a topic that she’s lectured on extensively to clinicians across the globe, Dr. Felice Gersh explains the 3 stages of menopause, what to expect in each stage, and potential interventions to improve overall health and health-related quality of life. Not only is this book a “must-read” for women approaching menopause or during the early stages of menopause, I believe that this book would be a useful resource for primary care clinicians and perhaps even many gynecologists who care for women during this important part of life. I highly recommend this info-packed, small, easy-to-read book|”

Follow her advice in this valuable book to make sure that you remain as vibrant and resilient in the second half of your life as you were during the first half.
