Reviews

Reviews on Google Business about the Alabama Fertility Center are mostly very positive.

User L, for example, describes the staff as patient, kind, and understanding. Their recommendations were always specific and well thought through for her case. User A tells the same thing. Thanks to the clinic she and her husband were able to conceive. Mandy would also recommend Alabama Fertility. She describes the doctors as personable, knowledgeable, and professional.

There is, however, one negative comment from Elizabeth. She had to wait for one hour at the clinic. The staff didn't call her doctor to get her records and she had to fill out a lot of documents that she considers out of date for a modern fertility clinic.

Location: how to get to the clinic?

The Alabama Fertility Center is located at 2700 Highway 280, Suite 370 East, Birmingham, Alabama.

The nearest Airport is Birmingham-Shuttleswort International Airport and a 12 minutes drive to the clinic via I-20W. To get there, take I-59 S from Airport Blvd and Messer Airport Highway.
