Clinic reviews and comments

Response
Great facility. We plan on using them again in the near future.
Perfect is the only word. The accomodation is not really relevant for the clinic.
none
Pricey but good service. However, the first two cycles failed with grade A embryos. Not sure if failures should be attributed to random chance or operational errors.
We used HRC and found them medically to be excellent. Some of their support staff are not so good and knowledgable or responsive to emails. Note that Nurses and Doctors are fine - it is the "coorindators, financial counsellors, etc" that we had issues with - they could have communicated better and not sent out nonsense emails or ignored emails when questions were too hard for them.
I went to HRC Encino with Dr. Boostanfar. He is amazing and great as I only went through one cycle and have my baby safely. The most beautiful boy. Thanks for them.
I think that the medications provided to the surrogate could have been more aggressive. It took 3 attempts for the surrogate to become pregnant and we found out later that injectible hormones were only given to her for the 3rd attempt. Many fertility doctors give these on all attempts.
The Dr. Was apparently working with Planet Hospital. I question if we were completely informed about the relationship and if there was a conflict of interest.
Used dr boostanfar, very good chair side manner. Fresh cycle did not take, and surprised dr. Boostanfar considering embryos were tested and considered grade aa, but, frozen cycle resulted in twin live births. He is great, the support staff especially during transfer had some language communication issues which resulted in surrogate having no clue what the instructions were.
