Clinic reviews and comments

(2014, USA parents) Dr Goldstein and his staff were unbelievable and very supportive of helping a gay couple.
(2014, USA parents) The clinic is very thorough when it comes to your care and ensuring best possible scenarios but lacks organization and communication. The doctor is very good but still to this day believes that myself and my surrogates husband were partners. I think he lacks the effective support staff he needs.
(2015, USA parents) Doctor Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas was amazing. One of the first things he asked was if we were scared? We were. We had to tell him he was the first doctor that wanted to help us after being turned down by multiple clinics, we couldn't believe it was real. He then passed us off to an angel of a nurse, Jeanette. She held our hands through the ups and downs of over a year. I can't recall how many times I would call her and she would reaffirm everything would be "ok" and would bring tears to my eyes each time.
(2015, USA parents) Dr. Goldstein and his entire staff (from the embryologist to the receptionist and everyone in between) were wonderful to work with. We were welcomed with open arms and never felt "different" being a same-sex couple. The communication was excellent. This is important, as this process involves so many medical tests along the way and you are always wondering what the results showed. We had a lot of face to face time with Dr. Goldstein, too, which made the process less clinical. We can't wait to have another child with the help of FST!
(2015, USA parents) Dr. Goldstein and staff were wonderful!
(2017, International parents) Making a judgment of a clinic is very difficult because the impossibility of monitoring the process. The communication wasn't the best, but at the end (after two cycles) we achieved all the goals, so something had to be right.
(2017, USA parents) Dr.Goldstein and his team took amazing care of us during our journey! The were attentive, knowledgeable, and were always available for questions. Jeanette and her team were amazing and we loved getting the phone call explaining what was going on! Our baby girl is due in earily November 2017 and we just couldn't. Be happier! Thank you Fertility specialist of Texas, without you we wouldn't be where we are today! Thomas &a Michael Miller
(2017, USA parents) Excellent communication and medical ability! We really felt that Dr. Goldstein was an expert in this field and we benefited from this in our results.
(2018, International parents) Very good, easy process. Dr. Goldstein is very nice and his staff is kind.
(2018, USA Parents) Good, smart docs.
(2018, USA parents) Dr. Goldstein and the staff at FST were amazing.
(2019, USA Parents) Initial experience with Dr Patel - negative , Egg donors cycle failed . After switching over to Dr Goldstein things took a positive spin ,
(2019, USA parents) They were extra awesome!
(2019, USA parents) They were very kind to my sister who is not familiar with the whole world of artificial reproduction and for that I could not be more grateful.
(2020, USA parents) FSTX/LGBT Fertility were phenomenal to us when going through the initial phase of our journey to becoming fathers. Dr. Skora and his team were very supportive as we went through the nerve-wracking process of egg donor selection and the whole embryo creation process. We really loved that they kept us in the loop the entire time through the each phase from our egg donor's screening to the transition of our surrogate to her OB/GYN.
(2020, USA parents) We could not be happier with Simple Surrogacy & Fertility Specialists of Texas. They helped make this journey smooth and incredible for us. We would not have known about them if it wasn't for MHB. Thank you for all you do.
