Reviews

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

Clarissa, for example, had an in vitro fertilization treatment in which she experienced several medical setbacks. However, the staff was always supportive and she felt well-informed about her options. After a failed IVF cycle she started her second one in which she got pregnant with twins. Catherine is also content with IVF California. She had a tubal ligation reversal at this center. Despite being a surgical intervention, the staff managed to make the surgery feel more comfortable to her. She will return to the clinic in order to conceive after her tubal ligation reversal. Also, patient Min describes Dr. Zeringue as helpful and has made positive experiences with the clinic's professional services.

However, there are also some negative comments. Yana, a former egg donor at California IVF, says that while the staff is friendly, she felt miserable after her donation as it was all about business. She complains about the lack of follow-up calls and visits after her egg retrieval. She would have liked to have a more personalized treatment. Also, Erin describes her experience as discouraging as she felt that as a patient you need to do research on your own, otherwise they would go straight to IVF.

Location: how to get to the clinic?

IVF California is located in 2590 Venture Oaks Way Suite 103, Sacramento, California.

The nearest airport is Sacramento International Airport and a 15-minutes drive to the clinic via I-5 S. Alternatively, there are tren connections from the airport. With approximately 1h 30 minutes, however, it would take much longer to California IVF.
