World Class Fertility Clinic in Los Angeles, CA
Welcome to the Los Angeles Reproductive Center (LARC). LARC is a fertility clinic serving patients in Encino, and Bakersfield, CA. LARC is a cutting edge fertility clinic with world-class success rates and individualized, personal care. LARC founders, Drs. Nurit Winkler and Marc Kalan, first met in 2009, following completion of their sub-specialty, fellowship training and board certification in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. The doctors quickly formed a strong friendship and extraordinary working relationship and after working together for many years decided to open their own center, a center that will reflect their own principals and believes. This was the beginning of Los Angele Reproductive center.
LARC, the Los Angeles Reproductive Center, is the exciting result of their common vision and inspiration. LARC was formed based on the shared vision of Drs. Nurit Winkler and Marc Kalan of a unique fertility clinic focused on treating patients like family and built upon the principles of communication, compassion, warmth, openness, and service that accompanies an exceptional pregnancy rate.

Drs. Winkler and Kalan want their patients to feel at ease, at home and welcome in their fertility clinic. They believe that questions and ideas should flow freely, and that through open, clear communication, the unavoidable stress normally associated with fertility treatments can be minimized, while success rates maximized.
Compassionate people by nature, both doctors greatly value the sacred relationship between doctor and patient. The strength of this relationship is a key aspect to the fertility clinic’s ongoing success. Patients readily recognize the doctors’ commitment to that relationship throughout their treatment. From a heartfelt hug to tears of joy, it is clear that Drs. Winkler and Kalan care deeply about their patients.
Warmth and Openness
While building the fertility clinic, great attention was paid to ambience, with natural lighting, an open floor plan and easy access. The result is an office that reflects the doctors’ goal of warmth and comfort. In fact, many patients claim that the office is “the nicest doctor’s office” they have ever seen, while others “look forward” to their brief time in the waiting room, where they can relax as a respite from an otherwise hectic day.
