Reviews

The reviews about the Community Reproductive Endocrinology found on the internet are both positive and negative. In the following section, we are going to list some of the comments on Fertility IQ:

On the positive side, we can see some patients that thank the whole staff for making them feel like a top priority, not like another number as you can see in other clinics. Other patients highlight the convenience that the clinic has having the hospital right there, making needed surgeries easy for the doctor to perform.

On the negative side, some patients say that only having a provider limits the actual time spent with the doctor, he has limited time with them and is limited with the questions or doubts. This is actually compensated with his nurses and staff that are very attentive.

    1. Hello, I am 40 years old and I am trying to get pregnant I know that not all odds are in my favor and I am going to need help. Do all clinics do IVF in older women? I couldn´t see data in this clinic

      • Hello Magnolia,

        After 35 the chances of getting pregnant decrease, it is more difficult to get pregnant and to carry a pregnancy. Most women have to recur to donor eggs and not all clinics do these kinds of procedures.

        I recommend you fill out our Fertility Report. It is a free tool that gives you insight into the possibilities you have to get pregnant and the clinics that offer those techniques, as well as estimated prices.

        I hope I could help,

        All the best.
