Reviews

Most of the reviews found on the Internet about SRMS are positive. Below, we will show some of the comments made on Google Business review.

Emily, for example, was very content with Dr. Sweet. After her diagnosis, the doctor provided her with various options and she chose IVF in the end which resulted in a twin pregnancy and 3 frozen embryos for future cycles. Also, Mary was recommended SMRS by her gynecologist and she was successful at her second fertility treatment. User Celia describes Dr. Sweet as highly professional and matter of fact.

However, there are also some negative comments. Nicole, on the other hand, complained about her payment in advance which she had to make prior to the appointment. Yaima, on the other hand, was not able to get a solution to her problem and felt not attended appropriately.
