Carrie, for example, was a surrogate at Zouves Fertility and describes the clinic as very organized and professional. She appreciates the personalized treatment of Dr. Zouves and the staff is always quick to respond to calls or emails. Jennifer coincides with the clinic description. She was able to obtain 6 embryos in one IVF cycle and considers the laboratory of high-quality.

However, there is also one negative comment from Christine. She wanted to have her egg frozen but was told by her insurance provider that there were tests that wouldn't be covered by them and that weren't necessary for her either.
