I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Homer & the entire staff at RSC Los Gatos!! They make a seemingly stressful process, full of uncertainty, one that is positive and full of hope.
Dr. Homer earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. He attended medical school at Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, completed his reproductive medicine residency at The University of California, San Diego and fellowship in reproductive endocrinology, infertility at the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Homer is board-certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility.
Dr. Homer initially planned on specializing in cardiology upon entering medical school. That quickly changed after he assisted on his first labor. Following the delivery, he called his mom to thank her for going through that for him. He then made plans to do extra rotations in OB and started a four-year residency in OB-GYN.
According to Dr. Homer, the best part of his job as a fertility specialist is seeing a positive pregnancy test and making that phone call to his patient. Dr. Homer is especially proud of his bedside manner. He says he takes great pride in being able to listen, connect and guide his patients through their journey.
He also makes it a mission to instill laughter during this process, if the patient is receptive. “It’s not always easy, obviously, but I’m pretty good at it!” says Dr. Homer.
In his spare time Dr. Homer enjoys spending time with his wife and three daughters. They are avid hikers on the weekend. Dr. Homer and his wife also thoroughly enjoy touring craft breweries (usually directly after the hike).
I feel that my job is to teach and guide patients to a place where they feel calm and knowledgeable about their care every step of the way and comfortable asking questions when they don’t!
