Reviews

The reviews about California Center for Reproductive Medicine found on the internet are generally very positive. In the following section, we are going to list some of the comments on Google Business.

Denise, for example, tells about her experience during her egg retrieval. The surgery didn't have any negative impact on her well-being and she felt like being prepared to return to work the next day. She would recommend this clinic to anyone as she felt this was the best place due to the family-like atmosphere. Breezy also describes Dr. Arnold and her staff as smart and lovely. Jane was an egg donor at CACRM and had such a good experience that she went for a second time to donate her eggs. She coincides with the statement of Denise and felt as if she was part of a family.

However, there is one negative comment from Claude. He paid full prescription and anesthesia but it turned out afterwards that it would have been covered by the insurance. He missed also support during the fertility treatments.

Location: how to get to the clinic?

CACRM is located in 477 North El Camino Real Suite C310 Encinitas, CA 92024.

The nearest airport to the clinic is the San Diego International Airport with a 30-minutes drive via I-5 N. Alternatively, there is also public transportation to the clinic by train or bus. However, with 2 hours on average, this would take much longer to get there.
