Clinic reviews and comments

Response
Dr. Kumar and Arlene are the perfect team.
LOVED our clinic and Dr. Kumar. We've already recommended him several times over.
We worked with Dr. Ashim Kumar at FSAC prior to his beginning Western Fertility Institute. He was a good physician, and generally made the journey simple and easy. FSAC as a clinic was generally responsive to our issues and its pricing for services was quite reasonable. While we did encounter some miscommunications issues, overall the clinic was good.
Dr. Kumar and his staff treated us with casual respect. You could tell they were totally comfortable with our sexual orientation and choice to become fathers through surrogacy. Dr. Kumar even gave us his personal cell phone number and (even though we tried not to) we used it! It kept us from climbing the walls and really highlighted their understanding of our situation.
El éxito extraordinario no se debió tanto a Fertility & Surgical Associates of California, sino más bien a la excelencia médica y administrativa del Dr. KUMAR y de su asistente Arlene,REES, quienes en todo momento asumieron nuestro caso con el máximo interés y comprensión, lo que resultó especialmente valioso para nosotros por residir en Costa Rica.
Dr. Hubert and his wonderful staff have done everything under the sun to help us have a baby. We lost twins at 21 weeks last year, and they have not charged us a penny for their very expensive services. We can't recommend this fertility clinic enough!
We had some small issues or concerns but above all it was a good experience. Dr Kumar was very down to earth.
Dr. Kumar was so kind and clearly loves what he does. He made himself available to us and answered all of our questions. He met and far exceeded our expectations.
