Heather G. Huddleston


Director, PCOS Clinic
Reproductive endocrinologist

Dr. Heather Huddleston is a specialist in reproductive endocrinology (hormonal function) and infertility. She cares for patients with a wide array of reproductive and fertility concerns. She has special interests in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), recurrent pregnancy loss and uterine disorders, including Asherman's syndrome (a condition involving scar tissue in the uterus). She also has expertise in techniques for diagnosing and treating complex uterine causes of infertility, including hysteroscopy, in which a thin, lighted tube is inserted into the vagina to allow examination of the cervix and interior of the uterus.

As director of the UCSF PCOS Clinic and research program, Huddleston oversees multiple research projects focused on improving medical understanding of PCOS. She also conducts research on recurrent pregnancy loss and treatment approaches for uterine factor infertility (abnormalities of the uterus that interfere with pregnancy). She has spoken on her findings all over the country, and her research has been widely published in scientific journals.

Huddleston earned her medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, followed by a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital.

Huddleston is a member of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine and American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

    Dr. Huddleston is great- she listened to my history and fully explained the upcoming treatment.

    The provider arrived late to the appointment bringing with her an observing physician. She seemed rushed and didn't bother to review my records. She thought I'd done an ultrasound with her office when I hadn't. She forgot about the bloodwork and testing my partner and I had done and seemed to fixate on getting done rushing through.

    The doctor hardly spoke to me only the nurses

    Everyone I interacted with for my procedure was incredibly helpful kind and attentive except the doctor handling my procedure Dr. Huddleston. This review is in regards to Dr. Huddleston. She barely acknowledged me or spoke to me when I entered the procedure room. I was nervous and expected at least a check in on how I was feeling a general hello or some acknowledgement of my presence there. I didn't feel like a person that mattered. She only spoke to me to ask me questions confirming my name date or birth and procedure. I am sure she does these procedures all the time and it means nothing but the attitude was cold. She was either on her phone or talking socially with the fellow While I got settled in the room. It didn't help to ease my nerves or make me feel like my procedure mattered. Everyone else the nurses the anesthesiologist and the fellow were very nice and warm during my stay.

    I spent a total of 3 min face-to-face with this provider so it is very hard to judge on any of these metrics. She seemed nice but most of the consenting and more complex discussions was performed by others.

    I feel extremely lucky to have received the care of Dr. Huddleston who has been one of the best care providers I have experienced. She is extremely professional and good at what she does but also an extraordinary human who shows genuine care.

    I felt listened to heard taken care of & given good information

    I have never felt so listened to. She really takes the time to explain things and let you ask questions which makes the whole process less stressful. And helps me feel I'm in good hands with someone who knows what she's doing and cares.

    I have already recommended USCF to my friends who are thinking about pursuing fertility treatments. This has been such a pleasant experience when it could have been really unpleasant given all the unknowns that go along with this sort of treatment.

    Dr.Huddleston is literally the best doctor I have had the pleasure of being treated by. She is incredible. I had 2 terrible experiences with another fertility clinic and Dr.Huddleston changed everything for me. It has been amazing so far.

    Dr. Huddleston is a very thoughtful and clear communicator. She provides easy to understand treatment options and listens to my questions and concerns. Her care team also follows up with next treatment steps quickly.
