Dr. Amersi is and has always been deeply attentive, caring, and expert in her guidance and treatment for my perimenopausal and gynecological care. I’m so grateful to have found her, and she impresses me to no end how she serves so many patients with love and compassion. She is busy. AND she is a master.

A year ago, you brought this little one into the world. The day after he was born you told me something that until now has been my philosophy with him… -no one can decide for him- he has challenge me in every way and tought me that although he is very little, he has his own voice and his own way of doing things. I can’t thank you enough for bringing me calm that special day, but most important, for bringing this awesome guy into my life. Lots of love!

Dr. Amersi is our doctor. She delivered our baby girl who is seven weeks old tomorrow. We couldn't be more thrilled. She continues to be kind, knowledgeable, immensely helpful and calming to us, who as first time parents, hadn't exactly a clue as to what to expect. All along the way, she was there for us, if we had any concerns, and walked us through every single moment, procedure, and change. In the delivery room was when we truly recognized her merit. She enabled us to stick to our birth plan, which was important to us--monitoring it carefully, in case we needed to pursue an alternate plan. Then as our baby descended into position, Dr. Amersi emerged like a general in the midst of a battle to corral her troops and formulate a plan. She instructed one nurse to coach with the pushing, one to assist her directly, and swiftly helped deliver our baby. In what would otherwise have been (understandably) chaotic, she helped us have a peaceful delivery.

I went to Dr. Amersi about hormonal replacement therapy. She was incredibly knowledgeable and informative. She has an amazing bedside manner, has calming and comforting energy and I love that she is available and responsive with emails, questions or concerns.

Dr. Amersi, I want to express to you how grateful I am that I found you after going to multiple ones before who didn't take the time or Care like you did to understand my body and the issues I was having. I came to you 5 years in to trying to have a baby and being told I would never be able to Conceive naturally. Under your care, I was able to regulate my cycles and minimize my endometriosis Symptoms, but I also got the biggest Surprise of all - getting pregnant, naturally! During my Pregnancy, you were such a calming presence and always made me feel truly cared for. I credit you for saving my baby's life, and in turn, mine. Julien being born 4 weeks early while my entire family and partner were out of town was less than ideal, but you made his delivery positive and calm, you brought the warmth and Support I would have Sought from the people I would have had in the room had this gone the other way. I am so grateful to you for getting Julien here Safely! I could not imagine going through that experience with anyone else and I feel bonded to you for life because of it. Again, from the bottom of my heart, Thank you! With love, Chelsea Larner

Looking for HRT therapy to ease the symptoms of menopause? Dr. Amersi can help. Menopause can be a difficult subject to navigate, especially since it's hard to imagine what life without these hormones might feel like. I liken the difference to life before and after a full-term pregnancy and birth. The transition into perimenopause and menopause can be a challenging and even life-altering experience. As someone who experienced "normal" symptoms like hot flashes and insomnia, I found that these issues were affecting all areas of my life and well-being. Thankfully, Dr. Amersi was able to provide me with HRT, which eliminated my symptoms and restored my vitality. I'm so grateful for her care and highly recommend her to anyone in need.

My Medical Journey On 9/23/22- I was diagnosed with CNS lymphoma while 6 months pregnant. Quite rare. In fact- possibly the only case today as it stands in the United States. As a healthcare CEO- I knew the importance of finding a great healthcare team to care for me. A good doctor can make all the difference in the world when it comes to outcomes. I did a ton of research to find my OBGYN- Dr. Amersi, in Santa Monica, CA- who not only saved my life but saved the life of my newborn son, and my 2 year old son (she delivered him early with a calcified placenta & high risk baby- he didn’t even have to go in the NICU). I am convinced that she is hands down the best OBGYN in the California if not the United States. I did a lot of research to find her- which is key in finding good care. I researched the best questions to ask an OBGYN when delivering your baby. I found that it is critical to ask complication rate, rate of vacuum use, rate of episiotomy % vaginal birth vs. c-section. After visiting 3 doctors- Dr. Amersi was the only OBGYN that answered every question with confidence and knew her stats like the back of her hand. She wasn’t threatened by me asking her questions. Since then, she has subsequently delivered two beautiful children for me and quite literally saved my life. If she had not sent me to get an MRI- I would have died from brain hemorrhage and likely very quickly. She sent me to get an MRI because she listens to her patients & gets to know them. She told me “I know you- you are not a complainer” when I told her I had the worst headache of my life- she told me to go get an MRI. I was the first pregnant patient she ever asked to get an MRI because of a headache. Her outside of the box willingness to try something new single handedly saved my life. I don’t know if I would have even made it three months without her asking for that MRI. She subsequently took charge of my care, got a team together of the best oncologists, high risk pregnancy doctors, anesthesiologists, and neonatologists to take care of me. At one point- she assembled a team of 28 doctors to care for me. I have never in my fifteen year career as a healthcare executive seen a physician go out of their way so greatly for a patient. She delivered by baby successfully via c-section at 7 months gestation. I was walking the next day & my c-section has been next to flawless with a barely noticeable incision which is almost healed at 6 weeks. Dr.Amersi is my guardian angel. Today- as it stands- I have completed three rounds of chemotherapy and my tumor is not gone. I have five more rounds to go- but I am already healed. I am in tears as I write this today because of the gratitude I have for Dr. Amersi. I cannot begin to express my appreciation and love for her. The care of a great doctor has saved the life of a young mother, and two small children who all have a second chance at life because of her.

I will be forever grateful that I found Dr. Amersi. She made our first pregnancy such an incredible experience. From our first appointment, she went out of her way to ensure we had all of our questions answered —even making herself available to us via text and email, and made us feel prepared to go into this new adventure of parenthood. She delivered our beautiful baby girl 6-weeks ago. She guided us through the whole birth experience with the most compassionate care. As soon as she came into the delivery room, both my husband and I sighed a breath of relief. She was everything we needed in those moments with her positive energy and warm presence, plus she truly excels at what she does! You are always in good hands with Dr. Amersi. We can’t thank her enough for caring for our family.
