Reproductive Medicine Associates of Southern California (RMA SoCal) is committed to supporting members of the U.S. Armed Forces, which is why the practice has launched a military discount program that offers active members of the military struggling with infertility a 30 per cent discount on In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) services.
As a U.S. Navy veteran, RMA SoCal founding physician Dr. Tom Kim is passionate about giving back to military families and supporting their path to parenthood.
“These are people that I can relate to as a veteran and a former patient,” said Dr. Kim. “I can help them have the family they dream of and am happy to alleviate some of the financial cost that comes with infertility treatment.”
After graduating from Loyola University in Chicago, Dr. Kim was stationed in San Diego, where he spent 15 years with the Navy. During this time, he served as medical officer and did a tour of active duty in the Gulf War.
It was in San Diego that Dr. Kim decided to pursue reproductive endocrinology and sought to help military families facing infertility. After he and his wife had their own battle with infertility, Dr. Kim saw the need for more fertility doctors accessible to members of the Navy. As a result, he founded the very first military IVF program on the West Coast and was able to provide an unparalleled service to many families. Since its inception in 1998, the IVF program at the Naval Medical Center San Diego has helped thousands of military families realize their parenting dreams.
RMA SoCal’s history with the military doesn’t stop there. Dr. Richard Scott, an RMA SoCal partner and co-founder of sister practice Reproductive Medicine Associates of New Jersey (RMANJ), served in the U.S. Air Force. Since meeting one another during their fellowship at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, Dr. Kim and Dr. Scott developed a friendship that eventually brought them together as doctors at RMANJ, where Dr. Kim worked prior to coming to Los Angeles. at RMA New Jersey.
