Hello! Thank you for visiting my website. I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Dr. Vanessa Kaleb. I am a board-certified Obstetrician/Gynecologist. I was raised in San Pedro, CA and attended St. Peter's Day School through junior high. I completed high school at Chadwick in Palos Verdes, CA. I returned to live in the South Bay following my studies at U.C.L.A for my undergraduate degree in Biology, Columbia University for my Masters in Public Health, and the University of California, Irvine for my medical degree. I completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, Irvine, one of the top obstetrics and gynecology programs in the country. After finishing residency, I spent three years as an Adjunct Clinical Professor at Stanford University, where I was honored to receive a teaching award in gynecology from Stanford Medical School. I am a preferred provider for many insurance plans.
My office is adjacent to Long Beach Memorial Medical Center and Miller Children's Hospital, renowned hospitals and leaders in the promotion and provision of women's and pediatric health care.
It is my goal to be a provider of the highest level of gynecologic and obstetric care to my patients. I have expertise in menopausal medicine, minimally invasive surgery, abnormal pap smear management, alternative therapies, pelvic pain management, infertility, and pediatric/adolescent gynecology.
I believe it is important to treat every aspect of a woman's health: physical, mental, and social. Patient education is a vital part of my practice. I feel the doctor-patient relationship is the most important basis of a team effort in my delivery of care to my patients.
My office also provides aesthetic services including: facial skin rejuvenation, spider vein therapy, and laser hair removal with the Harmony laser system. My office also offers Botox(r) and dermal filler treatments.
I am fluent in Spanish and Croatian.
In my free time, I enjoy gourmet cooking, spending time with my family and friends, travel, movies, book club, pilates, swimming, hiking, and spinning classes.
Please feel free to pass on my information to all of your family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances for which my expertise and services may be of use.
I hope to see you at my office. Please call (562) 595-7709 for an appointment.
