(2012, USA parents) Top notch.
(2013, USA parents) It was Dr. Sharara who was exceptional.
(2014, International parents) Brilliant team - and Dr Sharara is fantastic.
We could not have been more happy with VCRM. They are absolutely the best.
(2016, USA parents) The staff at the clinic were extremely friendly, supportive and approachable. They made all of us (intended parents and surrogate) feel at ease, comfortable and that they genuinely wanted to help us on our journey.
(2011, USA parents) They were very supportive in the process and again made it personal to help us achieve the ultimate goal of a successful IVF with the surrogate.
(2007, USA parents) Dr. Sharara and his staff provide top quality care to our surrogate and egg donor. He was very precise and clearly explained every step of the process to us.
(2012, USA parents) VCRM was absolutely fantastic and I'd recommend them to anyone. Dr. Sharara was totally the best.
(2009, International parents) Gran profesionalidad, humanidad, cercanos en el trato, dando confianza y transmiten seguridad y paz al paciente
(2009, USA parents) Dr. Sharara is a wonderful and compassionate man. All of the office staff are professional and understanding of same sex couples and issues. As a physician myself, we felt confident every step of the way with this clinic.
(2016, USA parents) Dr. Sharara and his staff did a wonderful job of assisting me on this looong journey. His advice was always from the perspective of maximizing the probability of a successful, healthy birth. The final result, my awesome, healthy twins are a testament to the clinic's expertise and attention to every detail.
