Reviews

The reviews of Genesis Fertility found on the internet are both positive and negative. In the following section we are going to list some of the comments on Google Reviews:

Amongst the many positive reviews we have Nour who names Dr Ross and the staff as excellent and had success with ther treatment, now having their baby. Marian names Dr Chiware as being passionate and calm and is now pregnant after 4 failed cycles previously. Dr Grazi is recommended by Laura who is a returning patient, who says the whole team is easy to work with and is pregnant again following her treatment.

In contrast Keisha, despite saying the staff are pleasant, says that she felt she received impersonal care from the medical director, but was looked after by Dr Chiware who advised her well for genetic testing.
