We were always treated very well and he [Dr. Bruce Kessel] was great at explaining every procedure or test that was needed...As a patient you always want to feel welcome and and he definitely made me feel at ease as a new IVF patient. Also, will make sure all testing is complete for your specific concerns prior to a cycle...They work as a team so you may not always see the same doctor. Ask any questions you may have. He is very knowledgable!
Organized and on top of everything! The clinic [Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute] was always accommodating whenever we had questions or concerns. They were compassionate when we found out our pregnancy had ended and made sure we knew that they would be there when we were ready to try again. Infertility is tough to go through and having an office that will make themselves available for you is much appreciated.
