Daniel A. Potter, M.D., F.A.C.O.G, HRC Fertility

January 2011

FertilityAuthority honors Dr. Daniel Potter as Fertility Doctor of the Month. In addition to his role as the medical director for HRC Fertility in Orange County, California, Dr. Potter is the laboratory director for Gene Security Network. Dr. Potter is being recognized as Fertility Doctor of the Month for his involvement with groundbreaking fertility treatment that increases the chance of having a healthy baby, and his commitment to advocacy for fertility patients.

Evolving Technology in the Infertility Field

Dr. Potter says his fertility practice has greatly evolved — the technology is being used to help treat patients with much more severe forms of infertility today, patients he may not have been able to treat when he first started in 1997.

“The technology allows us to look at the genetics of the embryo in very great detail,” he explains, "so we’re able to determine whether there is the correct number of chromosomes or whether the problem originates from the egg or the sperm. We also use the technology to prevent the transmission of genetic disease, and we use the technology to help people that have families achieve gender balance.”
