Our Story

Established in 1999, Columbia Fertility Associates in Washington, D.C., is a premier fertility clinic on the East Coast.

The team of professional and skilled physicians, nurses, and coordinators are highly trained reproductive specialists. They recognize the special needs of patients struggling with infertility and strive to provide innovative medical solutions with personalized patient-centric care.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art laboratory, patients can get all of their diagnostic and medical needs met under one roof. Plus, because Columbia Fertility Associates is consistently ranked among the top fertility centers in the country, patients can feel confident that the team has everything they need to help patients with the most complex of infertility issues.

Not only do we offer the most advanced in-vitro fertilization (IVF) program, our team specializes in frozen or thawed embryo transfer, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and assisted hatching, to name a few options. They have both an egg donor and a sperm donor program, too.

The team at Columbia Fertility Associates offers flexible scheduling for patients who want to get started on the conception process or patients who just want to learn about their options.


"I saw Dr. Rafat Abbasi ... and am now pregnant with twins through embryo adoption. Great experience, wonderful communication and success!"

"We give Dr. Abassi and her team at Columbia Fertility our highest recommendation without reservation."

"Overall, I would absolutely recommend CFA to anyone struggling with infertility and would return there myself if I needed to."

"There are not enough stars to rate Dr. Sacks. He cares about his patients, has a big heart and treats you with respect."

"I'm happy to say I'm expecting my first child in December at age 40! My other friend had her first child at 40 who went to CFA."

"We now have two children by IVF thanks to Dr. Sacks and his staff. We have referred other couples to CFA who have also been successful."
