Need OBGYN in/around La Jolla - AMA

Hi All,

I have Aetna insurance and part of the Scripps group.  I am leaning towards delivery at Scripps Green in La Jolla and am in need of a new obgyn.  I am 42, expecting my first!  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

  • If you havent found one yet... I like Dr Allan Silver
  • I don't have any recommendations, but I started with IGO and had a bad experience, so I'd recommend avoiding.

  • Hi! Scripps Green does not have a Labor and Delivery floor but if you're interested in La Jolla you'd be delivering at Scripps Memorial/La Jolla. I love my OB, he's on campus at Scripps La Jolla, and his name is Mel Kurtulus. He's an MFM so he's a specialist and is super reassuring. His office is also beautiful! Hope that helps :)
  • I go to Dr. Anmar Mansour off Genesse on t he 163...I commute from LJ and love her. She delivers out of Scripps Mary Birch (Sharp, FYI)
  • I'm not sure if it's too far, but I'm with Dr. Christine Brody in Scripps Encinitas. We just moved, so I'm actually commuting from Temecula, but I think it's worth it!
