Reviews

Most of the reviews found on the internet about the Reproductive Biology Associates are positive. Below, we are going to show some of the comments made on Google Business Reviews which refer to the main clinic in Atlanta.

Rebecca, for example, was successful in her first round of IVF after three negative IUI cycles. Rachel, on the other hand, had her eggs frozen and felt comfortable during the entire process. Also, Mindy describes the staff as helpful.

However, there is also some criticism. Stephany complained about the consultation in which she was not provided with a detailed explanation of the treatment process. Furthermore, user Zareena complained about the fact that this fertility center does not have in-house doctors.
