Reviews

The patient's reviews on Pacific Fertility Center on Google Business are mostly positive. However, Emily is the only user that has commented on her positive experience in detail. She underwent egg freezing. While it was up to the nurses who took care of her anxieties, the doctors still did a good job at the egg retrieval. What she also considered positive is the extra class patients go through in terms of self-injections.

However, there is also a negative comment from Catherine. She got several eggs from her retrieval, but also suffered from ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome.
