Clinic reviews and comments

Response
Outstanding clinic. The doctors and staff are top-notch.
The clinic were excellent.
The team at fwf were excellent!!! I can not say enough about them
They were a bit slow in scheduling - once we'd got our surrogate contract sorted it still seemed to take a few months before we underwent a cycle - this may be because they only cycle on a few days a month and so they get booked up. You also have to watch what is and isn't included in your contract in terms of costs. But they are good value, got results for us. So I don't think you'd go wrong in choosing them.
Dr Kaufman and his staff were so wonderful to work with. They were knowledgable, comforting and professional. We would definitely go back to them if we were to go through another round.
Absolument parfait! Le Dr Kaufman et toute sont équipe sont de sérieux professionnels, efficaces et très sympathiques.
Dr. Kauffman and his office were incredible and made us feel very at ease and confident during this entire process.
This clinic made us feel very important throughout the process. They were always available when we needed them.
Dr Kaufman and staff are great! Knowledgeable and friendly. They were easy to schedule with, on time, and clear about all billing issues. Also, Dr. K has a very high success rate. I am so grateful to them!
We cannot express how much we enjoyed working with Dr. Kaufmann! Dr. K and his entire staff were communicative, compassionate, and just great people. We did an anonymous fresh egg donation, and Amy kept us well informed every step of the process. We were able to attend the transfer, and Dr. K made the whole process fun and relaxing (despite all three of us being super nervous). We will definitely be going back to Fort Worth IVF for our second journey, and we highly recommend them to potential IPs.
Dr. Kaufman himself was fantastic as was the lead technical people, however the receptionist was combative at times and not empathetic to the situation despite having gone through it. (or at least the empathy did not come across in tone/action/words).
Dr. K. and Michelle are awesome. They were there for us through the ups and downs. Awesome experience with these folks!
