Reviews

The reviews about the Davies Fertility & IVF Specialists, S.C. found on the internet are both positive and negative. In the following section, we are going to review some of the comments on Google Review:

On the positive side, we can see how patients like Florina, highlight the work of the whole staff during the pandemic, having a safe space and well-informed process. Another patient, Kristy, says she was happy with going to a more familiar clinic where she didn´t feel like a number and was treated correctly.

However there are also some negative comments, Foodie, for example, states that the staff was unprofessional. Another patient also complaints about not having personalized attention most of all when they performed egg retrieval surgery, she states that instead of the clinic trying to synchronize with her cycle, she had to take contraceptive pills to synchronize to the clinics timing, once a month egg retrieval where all women would get it done.

    1. Hi! I had IVF here a few years ago, I was a basket case but Dr. Davies managed to get me pregnant after a few attempts. I’m not going to lie to you it was hard but I wouldn’t trade it for anything, best of luck!

    2. Hi I have a couple of questions, has anyone had a treatment here? I’m starting this process and I’m quite lost

      • Hello sahjer,

        Starting assisted reproduction treatments can be somewhat complex, that’s why from inviTRA we have created a fertility report that can help you identify which treatments would be best for you and which clinics offer them, as well as their indicative prices. I encourage you to fill it out, good luck!

        I hope I have helped you.
