DR. IJEOMA OKEIGWE

Dr. Okeigwe is a double board-certified reproductive endocrinologist and obstetrician gynecologist with a deep commitment to achieving exceptional patient outcomes.

She is a Bay Area native and completed her undergraduate degree and Masters in Public Health at UC Berkeley. She attended medical school at UCSF before advancing to her residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology at Boston University Medical Center. Dr. Okeigwe then completed her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Northwestern University. Dr. Okeigwe joins Spring from the Palo Alto Foundation Medical Group and is looking forward to continuing to provide exceptional, patient-centered fertility care in the East Bay.

When asked about her care philosophy, Dr. Okeigwe says: “My goal is to always provide compassionate, collaborative, evidence-based care. It is important to me to understand what my patients are feeling and thinking and work with them to form a treatment plan that not only optimizes their success but also makes them feel comfortable and safe throughout the journey. I want my patients to know that when they entrust their care into my hands, I’m doing everything I can to see to it that their dreams of becoming a parent, whether that’s now or later, come true.”

I just completed my egg retrieval cycle with Dr. Okeigwe at Spring Fertility Oakland and I am VERY pleased with my experience and results. Dr. Okeigwe is personable, knowledgeable, patient, supportive and open. Dr. Okeigwe is just what I was looking for in a doctor for a process that could have been daunting and intimidating. She totally made it seamless and put me at ease. I cannot thank Dr. Okeigwe and her team at Spring Fertility enough. This entire experience was top notch and I always felt supported. My entire Spring Fertility care team was accessible and super responsive. My egg retrieval day was relaxing and uplifting all at the same time. Ultimately, my retrieval results were great and I credit Dr. Okeigwe and team for this. Go to Spring Fertility and work with Dr. Okeigwe - you will not be disappointed.
