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.

Dr. Amersi! I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since little Summer Schmuck made her grand arrival. Bobby and I have been eager to thank you again for being such a vital part of bringing our baby safety into the world. The moment you walked into the delivery room we both sighed with relief as we watched you do what you were clearly made to do so brilliantly. The way you guided the nurses, quickly figured out what was going on and made swift decisions (& all the while encouraged me so strongly & cheerfully!) was simply impressive. We are so in love with our Summer girl. She is tiny, and her spirit is massive. She makes us laugh and melts our hearts every day. I can honestly say that carrying, delivering, and mothering this baby is the wildest and already most fulfilling adventure of my entire life. I know Bobby would say the same about being a father (you should see these two Schmucks together - makes my heart explode!) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for being excellent at what you do, Dr. Amersi. Thank you for caring for my little family and I so well, and keeping us all safe. We love you and will forever be grateful for your role in this miracle!

I truly cannot recommended Dr Amersi enough. Last year I struggled through two miscarriages followed by a year of not being able to get pregnant again. Then I met Dr Amersi and her confidence and intelligence were extremely calming, as anyone struggling with infertility would understand. She helped diagnose my problem, get us pregnant again, and delivered a perfect baby boy earlier this month. I waited until he was here to post a review because I didn’t want to jinx anything but I have been recommending Dr Amersi to all of my girlfriends and sisters for the past year. Dr Amersi is so smart, sweet, and puts her patients above all else. She is full of positivity and knowledge and My husband and I trust her completely. After spending time with a few OBGYNS in Santa Monica I can confidently say we will be delivering all future babies with Dr Amersi.

Hi Dr. Amersi, Yesterday was a very tough visit because my ability to conceive was confirmed to be a future difficult endeavor. You have no idea how many gynecologists I’ve been to and no one has even suggested/covered even a quarter of you did within my first 5 minutes of me meeting you. I can see that this is your passion and that you take your role as a very serious responsibility to help as many people as you can (especially seeing your work) and your dedication to try and be there for your patients as much as possible whenever possible.  I feel very lucky that I met you and that you have been able to use your knowledge to finally uncover what my body has been telling me for years by diagnosing my PCOS. Not only that, but you have found potential solutions to to help me meet my goals which gives me hope. I completely appreciate you advocating for me and my future with the advice you provided. I just wanted you to know that. I just want you to know that I thank you for everything you are doing for me and that I truly appreciate your blunt approach to help keep me focused on my goals.   I just wanted to express my appreciation for everything you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Everyone needs an advocate. Thank you for being mine.

I have been seeing Dr. A for many years, through the birth of my second son and well into his teenage years. I appreciate the standard of care she has provided consistently throughout the years. Dr. Amersi is kind and compassionate and approaches her patient care from that place. Love you Sham! xxoo G

I have seen so many doctors and most have dismissed my issues and lab results. Dr. Amersi is the first person to give me an active plan and validate my concerns.

I will be forever grateful that I met Dr. Amersi. I can't thank her enough for all of her help, care, and guidance. She changed my life! I was constantly crying, having panic attacks, and felt like my emotions were all over the place for no reason at all. I also started breaking out with cystic acne out of nowhere. It wasn't until I saw Dr. Amersi that she helped me realize I had a hormone imbalance. She values homeopathic remedies and put me on daily vitamins and natural supplements to balance out my hormone levels. I am in awe how much better I feel. I never leave reviews, but Dr. Amersi deserves a million stars! I finally feel like myself again! There is no better feeling than this. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Amersi!!
