The reviews on Google Business are generally positive. Masako for example, was able to get pregnant and has two daughters. Olivia also was able to get pregnant and plans on getting back for another frozen embryo transfer. Erica changed to Sher Fertility and was extremely satisfied with her doctor. She felt that professionals at Sher would take a different approach to things by thinking outside the box thus giving each patient an individual treatment.

However, Katherine did not make a positive experience at Sher. She had 4 IUI and 2 IVF cycles which didn't end in pregnancy. According to her, the laboratories at the clinic are not up-to-date. She also received a test that was out of network without being notified and was charged for it afterwards.


Sher Fertility Institute is located at 425 5th Ave, New York, New York. This is one of the main avenues in downtown Manhattan, New York City.
