Reviews

Most of the reviews found on the Internet about the Pacific Fertility Center are positive. In the following section, we are going to show some of them found on Google Business.

According to Michael, for example, Dr. Sahakian is an approachable fertility doctor who is always willing to discuss any questions. Also, patient Damien has made positive experiences with this clinic. He and his partner had only two embryos but pregnancy occurred already after the first embryo transfer. Another patient called Barcley had a successful surrogacy at the Pacific Fertility Center. She appreciated the honesty of the doctor and he also offered to answer any questions regardless of the patient will opt for this clinic or another.

However, there are also negative comments from Nat. The patient was supposed to have a frozen embryo transfer. However, when going to the office, the doctor switched plans without warning. She liked the rest of the staff, though. User Nutrition, on the other hand, was not satisfied with the organization of the center. Despite having paid her fees before, they still sent her two bills for anesthesia and storage.

      Hi, has anyone had a treatment here? How are your impressions? I’m sorting through several options, but I can’t seem to come up with one… I haven’t visited one clinic yet. I’m a mess. Besides, I don’t want to go bancrupt.

        Hi Snowflake,

        we at inviTRA always recommend going to the first visit in at least 3 different centers to be able to compare. This way you can take with your impressions of the medical team, the facilities, the way of working, etc.

        To do this, I recommend that you go to this tool: Fertility Report. In this way, you will get a list of the clinics that best suit you and that meet our quality criteria. In addition, you will also receive some advice for when it is time to visit the clinics.

        Hope this helps,

        Best regards
