Jacqueline, for example, was at a different fertility clinic before she came to Care Fertility. She describes the staff as nice, welcoming, and patient. They also helped her analyzing her options with insurance coverage. She finally was able to get pregnant at this center. Irene coincides with the description of the staff and describes the treatment as personal and empathetic.
