Description

The Southern California Reproductive Center (SCRCIVF) is a fertility clinic based in Beverly Hills and other locations in Santa Barbara, Ventura, Bakersfield, Glendale, etc., all of which consist of a multidisciplinary team of infertility specialists, embryologists, and administrative staff.

Plus, all of the locations dispose of their own IVF laboratories so that the fertility treatments can be carried out directly in the clinics.

According to information published on its website, SCRCIVF also offers surrogacy treatments and gender selection. Furthermore, this clinic provides fertility financing programs. However, all this information could not be verified by the inviTRA specialists.

Reviews

The reviews about the Center for Reproductive Health & Gynecology found on the internet are generally very positive. In the following section, we are going to list some of the comments on Google Business:

Laura, for example, loves the family-like atmosphere and personalized treatment at the Southern California Reproductive Center. She achieved to get pregnant and is mother to a son now. Claire also comments positively on the clinic. She was recommended a complementary technique in her IVF cycle and could, therefore, get pregnant in the first round. Later, she decided to resort again to an IVF procedure at this facility and was able to get pregnant with her second child. User Hills coincides with the statements above and describes the staff as supportive, understanding, and kind. Their empathy and reassurance kept her and her husband going. They also were able to conceive in the end.

However, there are also some negative comments on this center. Ana was not able to get a consultation in the first place because nobody called her despite having left two voicemails and a written request. VoiceOvers describes Dr. Chang as very nice but she did not follow the established protocol of ICSI with the patients' own eggs. Instead, sperm was feely mixed with eggs and thus, all 6 eggs could not fertilize appropriately and were discarded.
