About Michele Hakakha, M.D.

Dr. Hakakha prides herself in establishing a meaningful relationship with each patient in order to provide the most individualized care possible. Her philosophy includes exploring each patient’s needs to offer the least invasive treatment.

While growing up on the island of Maui, Dr. Hakakha knew at a very young age that she wanted to pursue a career in women’s health. After attending medical school at the University of Hawaii and graduating at the top of her class with honors, she completed her residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the world-renowned Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. She established her private practice in Beverly Hills in 2002 and in 2009, opened a new, state of the art office, offering patients an array of procedures in a safe and comfortable environment. She and her staff work together closely to provide patients with compassion, respect and privacy. Over the years Dr. Hakakha has developed a special interest in caring for patients with high-risk pregnancies as well as caring for adolescents who are transitioning to adulthood.

Many of her patients have been with her since the start of her practice and it is not uncommon for Dr. Hakakha to care for multiple generations within a family. Dr. Hakakha is an active member of both the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the American Medical Association. She believes in the importance of maintaining established skills while continuing to explore the literature and incorporate new and exciting medical breakthroughs into her practice. Dr. Hakakha is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and maintains her certification annually through a rigorous Maintenance of Certification process set forth by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Expecting 411

Now in it's 3rd edition

After being in private practice for many years and having patient after patient dissatisfied with the current educational books available to expecting mothers, Dr. Hakakha decided to co-author Expecting 411: Clear Answers and Smart Advice for Your Pregnancy. This book is the first pregnancy book written by two physicians (an OBGYN and a pediatrician) who are also mothers. The result is a down-to-earth, “no paranoia” guide through pregnancy that offers mothers-to-be the most current medical information delivered in a girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone.

Expecting 411 is available at Barnes & Noble, Babies R Us and Amazon.com.

Please check back periodically for the most up-to-date news at the Expecting 411 website.
