Clinic reviews and comments

Dr. Daneshmand is the best!
I loved my experiene with SDFC. The staff was great and kept me informed every step of the way.
They are serious, and very friendly.
This clinic is amazing! Do yourself a favour and make contact with them for your consultation.
Was an absolute pleasure working with SDFC.
Working with SDFC was a fantastic experience. Being a Physician myself, it was really great being able to talk with my clinician and discuss the pros and cons of various options and strategies including th more esoteric ones. After having 3 failed attempts with our previous clinic (NEFI) this was particularly salient as the clinicain there was unwilling to consider any other opinion suggested to him. Our Surrogate also felt the same as she felt the staff and facilities were way superior and she felt that her care was more individualised and targeted. The fact that they had access to a fabulous pool of egg donors was great as we managed to get one who ticked almost all our boxes. we are so impressed that family and friends are all wanting to use them.
premier essai avec cette clinique premiere réussite contrairement aux cliniques canadiennes. réactivité et professionnalisme au rdv, couts similaires au cliniques canada quand on compare tous les coûts .
Dr. Brooke Friedman at SDFC is extremely meticulous, thorough, kind, warm, smart, and accessible. She took the time to answer all of our questions and was very honest about setting realistic expectations. After three failed transfers for myself, Dr. Friedman was very straight forward, but sensitive, that she felt surrogacy was the best option for us. Her guidance helped us make some heart wrenching decisions which ultimately led us to have our miracle baby! We are SOOO very grateful to SDFC and to Dr. Friedman. We will be starting on a sibling surrogacy journey with SDFC again soon.
Regarding SDFC, we are impressed by their professionally. The most important for them is performing a professional job. They are friendly and very responsive to any questions you might have. For us, we indicated we would like to be in contact with the egg donor in the future. This was asked to the egg donor before the donation. A good choice, for parents and egg donors who find future contact important.
We loved working with SDFC!! They were some of the most helpful and positive people. They were very quick when responding during the early stages of our journey, and thoroughly kept us informed. Our nurse Megan was amazing! She was caring, personable and really made the process more enjoyable and less stressful. We made the trip to San Diego and everyone was so welcoming and we got to be in the room for our transfer. Dr. Park was great and we felt like they did everything to get the best results possible. We can't say enough about San Diego Fertility and we highly recommend them!
Fantastic Clinic and staff. I could speak to Dr Daneshmand whenever I needed , he was always available and made me feel I was his only client. Really an amazing experience.
Very professional and friendly people: the clinic has our highest recommendation. Very responsive to questions in a professional way. We opted for an open relationship with the egg donor; this was asked to her during the selection process. It worked out very well, and I would recommend intended parents to go for single embryo transfer.
Dr. Park was wonderful. We felt in such good hands throughout the process. We would never think doing this again with anybody but Dr. Park.
Dr. Park is amazing. The staff (especially Chris) is amazing. There are a lot of hiccups and stress points of this type of journey. The SDFC was not one of them. They are communicative and supportive. It took a few tries admittedly, but these things do happen (and one of the failed attempts was completely unavoidable by SDFC). I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
SDFC and Dr. Daneshmand was a clinic recommended by a few surrogacy professionals. We decided we needed a fresh start and moved our embryos to SDFC and have been thrilled ever since. Dr. D and the rest of the SDFC were phenomenal. I received prompt responses to questions within 24 hours, I could even text questions and get answers. SDFC took care of the psychological evaluation for our surrogate as well, which saved us time finding a qualified Psychologist., I got to speak directly to the Psychologist to review her evaluation. The transfer went smoothly and resulted in a healthy live birth. The team at SDFC continued to check in on our progress throughout the journey and asked for updates, including pictures of our newborn. If I had questions (even after we had transitioned to the OB), Dr. D would answer them. We successfully thawed one embryo and only had to do one transfer. The entire staff was always positive and engaging, knowing how many transfers and surrogates that we had worked with previously. They also have great financial options to ensure that we would go home with a live baby -- and were willing to work on a payment plan for us to support our journey with them. I am glad we chose to work with them when we decided to start over with a new clinic - we now have a healthy son thanks to Dr. D, Debbie, Susanna, Barbara and Michelle.
