Violet Klenov, MD, FACOG cherishes the privilege of serving the community in which she was raised as a reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist. Dr. Klenov completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Washington University in St. Louis, sharing this alma mater with three other Vios physicians. Staying true to her Midwest roots, she completed her fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the University of Iowa.
Born in Russia, Dr. Klenov moved to the United States at age 6 and has had a fascination with science since childhood. During residency, she had a chance to work with Vios’ own Dr. Amber Cooper. After witnessing, firsthand, the technological innovations and patient focused care the field offered, Dr. Klenov immediately knew she would specialize in the field of reproductive medicine.
Dr. Klenov has received numerous awards for her research and minimally invasive surgical skills. Most recently, she was recognized by the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society for her research on the effects of environmental toxins on women’s reproductive systems. While she is dedicated to all facets of reproductive health, Dr. Klenov has particular interest in counseling patients about cost-effective treatment, highly individualized patient care, and the impact that nutrition and diet changes can have on fertility.
Dr. Klenov is an active member of numerous medical associations, including: the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; the American Society of Reproductive Medicine; and the Pacific Coast Reproductive Society. She also serves on the Practice Committee for the Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, tasked with writing and updating Practice Committee documents for the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.
