Reviews

The reviews for University Reproductive Associates found on the internet are both positive and negative. In the following section we are going to list some of them found on Google Reviews.

In the positive reviews we find the patient Michelle, who underwent an egg freezing procedure, found their service efficient, friendly and got money saving tips for the medications. However, she also states that there was poor communication and not enough education about her treatment. Evan and caragrnspn349 both comment that the team were friendly, supportive and professional.

In the negative reviews we see that usha felt that they do not care about their patients, they were too busy and understaffed and the service was terrible.

If you would like to tell us about your experience with URA, whether it was positive or negative, we encourage you to do so in our comment section.

    1. Hi. We have had 3 rounds of IVF now and still no luck. My wife is finding it really hard to keep going but I think we should keep trying. It would be nice to hear from anyone else who has been through this, especially if you have had success. Thanks
