Reviews

Most of the comments found on the Internet about Marine Fertility are positive. Below we will show some of them on Facebook and Google Business.

Michael, for example, was able to become a father thanks to the clinic.

Also Brandi would recommend Marin Fertility. She had already tried different specialists and went to Marine Fertility afterwards. Her frozen embryo transfer resulted in a pregnancy and she has a boy and a girl now.

On Google Business there are only two reviews one of which is commented on.

Andrew and his wife went to see Dr. Agard whom he describes as honest and professional. They tried another egg retrieval after having been at a different fertility clinic and procedure resulted in 3 PGS tested embryos and both are confident that the treatment will have a positive outcome.
