Paul Magarelli, M.D., PH.D., F.A.C.O.G

If you ask anyone in Colorado about Dr. Paul Magarelli they will tell you that he makes babies for a living. Dr. Magarelli and his team, HQA Fertility Centers, have served Colorado and the Western Region as a Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility Specialist since 1998. Over 3,000 babies are part of his legacy, and he has only just begun. His motto of practice began as “High Tech with a Personal Touch” then evolved to “We Heal by Creating Families in an Affordable way”. Recently Dr. Magarelli decided to spearhead a change in how Reproductive Medicine is practiced in the United States. He did this by creating HQA-Fertility Care (said HiKu). High Quality Affordable Fertility Care is a revolutionary approach to helping infertility patients get access to all types of fertility care, including High Tech in the forms of IVF/ICSI and Comprehensive Chromosomal Screening (CCS/PGD), at incredibly affordable prices. He changed the average fee for IVF from $ 15,000 to $ 7,700 and the typical fees for CCS/PGD from over $ 36,000 to $ 11,000. This is a major shift in the accessibility and affordability of infertility care. He did this while preserving his signature 5 Star service guarantee: he and his staff will provide care in a pleasant, compassionate, competent and respectful fashion. He also created a program in which patients with cancers that may make them permanently infertile, can have an IVF cycle at no fee and this includes medications. He is now advancing care for our military with his Compassionate Corps™ program in which soldiers that have injuries that may affect their fertility can have their IVF medications for two IVF cycles … free.

Dr Magarelli and his wife, Diane K Cridennda, L.Ac., Doctor of Oriental Medicine (NMex), of East Winds Acupuncture in Colorado Springs originated the research to incorporate Acupuncture into IVF treatment cycles. Their C-MAP protocol (Cridennda Magarelli Acupuncture Protocol) is used worldwide to help infertility patients create “One Healthy Baby™”. Both Dr. Mag and Dr. Diane founded and serve on the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine and both are invited lecturers worldwide on topics that range from infertility to Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Menopause, Andropause and the treatment of Insulin Resistance.

Dr. Magarelli designed the nation’s first comprehensive clinic to treat Insulin Resistance and its sequelae of diabetes, hypertension, low testosterone, depression, andropause, fatigue and more in his clinic called the Institute for Sustained Health™. 

Dr. Magarelli remains the only RE in the city with the ability to diagnose and treat folks both locally, nationally and internationally. He is a graduate of Duke University Health Sciences Residency and UCLA RE Fellowship program. He earned his Ph.D. in Nutritional Biochemistry and Physiology at the University of Arizona. Recently he was elected President of the nations’ oldest regional fertility organization, the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society.
