Reviews

The reviews about the Fertility Center & Applied Genetics of Florida are excellent. Below, we will show some of the comments made on Google Business Reviews about the Sarasota office.

Michael, for example, describes Dr. Pabon as extremely professional and methodical. He and his wife were able to conceive thanks to the clinic. Also, Ryna made a positive experience. After one unsuccessful embryo transfer, the patients were looking into a transfer of two embryos. However, since the embryos didn't present any abnormalities the doctor discouraged a multiple transfer due to the risks involved. Finally, the second single embryo transfer resulted in a pregnancy.

Skylee, on the other hand, had a tubal reversal and hysterosalpingography at the office. She is still not pregnant but confident that it will happen soon.

However, there is also one criticism from Michael. He criticizes the provided information about the timeline of their IVF. After paying, he was told to wait for another month. Also, the doctor was not available when he wanted to talk to him.
