About Dr. Gersh

After receiving my medical degree from the USC School of Medicine, I studied Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Kaiser Hospital in Los Angeles, where I was awarded the CREOG award as the top resident every year. Soon after graduating I became Board-Certified, and over the following years as a practicing OB/GYN, I developed a unique take on women’s healthcare.

From the beginning of my career, my approach to medicine has been inclusive, which is why I have always incorporated treatments rarely found within the confines of conventional American medicine.

I followed my interest in holistic approaches to healing, and graduated from the two-year Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

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.

I’m very proud to have been recognised 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.

SET A REMINDER: IG Live tonight! As abortion bans spread across the country, contraception can get pulled into the conflict. Emergency contraception, aka the "morning after pill" and often known by the brand name, Plan B, is sometimes mistakenly considered to be a form of abortion. Tonight, I'll discuss the difference between contraception and abortion and explain why emergency contraception is just that, contraception.

Women with PCOS are not adept at converting testosterone into estradiol. Estradiol comes from testosterone and it’s converted in the ovaries using an enzyme called aromatase, so essentially you end up with a surplus of testosterone and a deficiency of estradiol.⁣

This causes the brain to put out a signal through the pituitary gland to make more luteinizing hormone (LH), which is the hormone from the pituitary gland that tells the ovary to make more testosterone.⁣

As I shared on Monday, you can reverse PCOS, which is why I’m excited to share my in-depth conversation with @Dr.FeliceGersh about the different types of PCOS and how we tackle it in our respective clinics.
