Describe your experience with Center for Fertility and Gynecology.
Strengths are the doctors are very knowledgeable about their procedures and they also want the best success for their patients weakness I have to say staff that works with them are not really good they don't do their job right they're more like they see a person as a dollar sign instead of seeing a person as a human they also want to overcharge someone for procedures that were already paid for

$14,000 including medications -- maybe $8,000 to $10,000 no medications...all in all they were great, but I had limited care with. I lived in FL was there for 2 weeks for retrieval transfer rest. other care was in FL...I live in FL -- and was able to come to LA for treatments. LA doctors were more affordable then in my local FL area. The doctor was ok and enabled this for me. I saw a FL doctor to monitor egg growth before I came out -- while he got the results and evaluated them for my care. During the actual transfer he was talking to his nurses about golf or something, while it was a very emotional time for me. I thought that was insensitive, but he when he saw me crying a bit -- he became for sensitive to the huge moment it was for me. All in all I have twins -- which a single pregnancy was the goal. I transferred two embryos, and feel very blessed. I was nervous to care for twins, but feel very fortunate.
