Professinal Statement

Dr. Dubin did his undergraduate studies at UCLA earning a B.A. in Biology with highest honors, minored in Chemistry and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude. He received his medical degree at UCLA, and then followed with a rotating internship. Dr. Dubin then completed his Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at UCLA. He was selected and served as UCLA’s Chief Resident in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Dubin became board certified in OB-GYN in 1984, and was elected fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1986.

After completing his formal training, Dr. Dubin started private practice in Santa Monica, California in 1982, which he has continued to the present. He served as Assistant Clinical Professor at UCLA and Instructor at the Santa Monica Hospital Family Practice Residency Program from 1982 to 1992. In the mid 1980’s Dr. Dubin became an early adopter of endoscopic gynecologic surgery and laparoscopic excision of endometriosis, receiving post-graduate training in endoscopic surgery from many of its founding pioneers and in turn providing surgical training to UCLA OB-GYN Residents. The Accreditation Council for Gynecologic Endoscopy certified him in advanced operative laparoscopy and hysteroscopy in 1996. In 1997 after delivering over 3,000 babies he limited his practice to Gynecology. That same year he founded the West Los Angeles Endometriosis Center and co founded the Menopause Center of Southern California. Since 2008 he has incorporated hereditary cancer risk assessment into his gynecology practice and has been a speaker for Myriad Genetics helping to educate the medical community on this subject. He has been a member of the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopy, The North American Menopause Society, and The American Fertility Society.

Dr. Dubin practices utilizing an individualized patient oriented holistic approach. In addition to practicing general gynecology he specializes in the evaluation and management of menopause, perimenopause, female hormonal imbalances, endometriosis, minimally invasive surgery, cancer risk assessment and screening. Dr.Dubin considers each patient’s circumstances as unique, and therapy is tailored to fit the patient and not the patient to fit the therapy. An armamentarium of treatments is utilized drawing from a vast clinical experience. If surgery is required Dr. Dubin utilizes the latest minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Dubin’s philosophy is that of personalized care and risk assessment with attention to on time comprehensive visits, easy access, friendly and helpful staff, and unhurried consultations.
