What My Patients Have Said

  • I have been involved with PFC for the last three months and I am certainly giving them 5 stars. If you need to start a fertility treatment and confused on how to pick the right clinic, you are not alone. Here is what I found out: It is an extremely emotional experience and it is scary. The other complicated factor in fertility treatment is the female unpredicted monthly calendar. Considering theses, it is not an easy process. Despite all of that, I have had a great experience with them. They have been very organized, responsive and the nurses were very compassionate. Lots of hand holding. They are open 7 days a week, responding to all emails and phone calls promptly. They have been accommodating based on my work schedule. I think I have been offered the most professional experience I could ask for. If you are thinking of doing IVF or freezing your eggs, I highly recommend PFC and Good Luck! - Maya J.
