On Google Business, patient tell their experience with Western Fertility Institute, which are mostly extremely positive.

On other platforms such as fertilityIQ, fertility patients share their experience with the clinic. Most of them would recommend Western Fertility Institute.

They value the easy scheduling and the staffs love for details. One patient states that she liked that the staff paid extremely attention to personal details and was always compassionate. Besides, Dr Kumar takes his time for every consult and the patient felt well-informed at every steps she had to go.

A different patient which underwent IVF treatment, liked the facility and affordable treatment packages. While she had an overall good experience, the only thing she didn't like was to have to call and remind about things and, on the contrary to what experienced a different patient on fertilityIQ, she didn't felt properly informed, either. The patient didn't receive any calls after egg retrieval. Her nurse rushed through instructions and felt bothered when asked to explain further.

      Hi there,

      we moved to Cali and we’re looking for a fertility clinic in LA. We already had a consultation where we lived before and they told us that my wife needs egg donation. So basically we are looking for a clinic that offers IVF with donor eggs and that allows us to take part in the egg donor matching.
