Shahab Minassian, MD

“As a physician with over 35 years of experience as well as a father and husband, I’ve learned that bringing a new life into the world always positively affects so many people. It’s such a joy to see the happiness that’s shared. And I take pride in celebrating with my patients when they have a baby.”

Meet Dr. Shahab Minassian

Sensitivity, respect and individualized care are the main components of Dr. Shahab Minassian’s personal philosophy when treating patients at Main Line Fertility.


“My mission is for all of our patients under our care to have the best possible experience at Main Line Fertility. We know that many new patients may have been struggling for a long time before they make an appointment with us, so I believe that it’s incredibly important for us to be especially sensitive to their needs and respectful from the very beginning. We do everything we can to ensure a positive experience from the moment they arrive at our doorstep.”


A Philadelphia native, Dr. Minassian is a father and husband as well as a renowned expert in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), specifically in the relationship between infertility and PCOS. Dedicated to his fertility patients and his career, Dr. Minassian also draws upon his own family relationships and spirituality every day as he gets to know and treat his patients.


“It gives me the inspiration to move forward and provide strength during the times when I need to be the most supportive to those patients who may need some extra care,”
