Reviews

The majority of the patient's experience on Google Business about Boston IVF are very positive.

Sarah, for example, was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. She and her husband tried for several years before going to Boston IVF. They were finally able to become parent to a girl. The patient describes the staff is knowledgeable, compassionate und understandig. Her experience was very positive and recommends the clinic. Elfie basically says the same. The doctors found out more than her previous doctor in the past 3 years. Another patient called Katie was also able to get pregnant and is parent to two children.

However, there are also negative comments from Nicole and Maria. Both are dissatisfied with the front desk receptionist whom they describe as rude. Nicole therefore wouldn't recommend the clinic because the way the receptionist talked to her ruined her experience.

Location: how to get to the clinic?

The vast majority of consultations and clinics of Boston IVF are situated in New England. However, we'll list only those located in New England who have their own IVF laboratory integrated.

Boston IVF - The Portland Fertility Center is located at 778 Main St, South Portland.

The nearest airport is Logan International Airport. From the airport, it will take you approx. 1h 40 minutes to the clinic via I-95 N.
