Can anyone recommend a RE?

Hello ladies
My SO and I have been TTC our 1st since November. We are both 40 and have had no success. I am looking into seeing a RE just to make sure all is well, get any necessary tests taken care of and if need be take the next step, Clomid etc.
Have any of you seen one that you would recommend?  We live in Sherman Oaks, so the valley would be preferable but if there's a great one elsewhere we'll definitely travel.

Thank you all in advance

    I am incredibly in love with Dr. Nurit Winkler at Center for Fertility in Tarzana (pretty close to you).  I actually ended up not needing to start fertility treatment, but she went out of her way to help monitor and support a natural conception (I ovulate very irregularly and she discovered I was about to ovulate when we did a baseline scan to see if I was a good candidate to start clomid).  I actually saw 3 REs in the course of six months and she was the only one who was even more up to date on research than I was (I spent about 100 hours on pubmed looking at various fertility studies).  She was also warm, compassionate and encouraging-- the opposite of the rumors you hear about most doctors!

    Overall, I went to her office about 4x for follow-up blood work and scans before switching to OB and never waited long plus her lab techs/nurses are great and always got back to me with my results quickly.  I also chose her in part because they have great explanations and clear pricing on their website and I am a big fan of transparency. :)
