How was your experience with David Tourgeman at HRC?
He is the most genuine person ever, explains you what he is doing, and really cares for you, he wants your best and knows a lot about different protocols.
I used to be on lovenox, and instead of having me continue he stopped it, he knew that I did not need it, even if the previous dr told me I did.
I went to see him desperate at 42 with a history of 4 previous miscarriages, in oct 2010, by august 2011 I became a mom of twins, and by june 2013 my daughter was born. ( she was conceived with the twins but after the first pgd pre genetic diagnosis she did not look good, so dr Tourgeman transferred only the 3 that were good 100%) then he told me if you want, I can sent the embryos left to do pgd again, and after few days he called me, “ you have a good embryo left, she is a girl, she is in the freezer”
I have 3 kids thanks to dr Tourgeman and his great laboratory.

Trust this review because its the truth, stop shopping around go straight to dr Tourgeman.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Tourgeman at HRC?
I went to dr Tourgeman at 42, with 4 previous miscarriages, he was so nice, understanding and really genuine.
He did not promise me anything, just his best.
I went to see dr Tourgeman after 4 failed pregnancy with a different dr who put me on Lovenox to help my pregnancies.
Tourgeman told me I did not need it, and never did it again.
I had a total of 3 fresh Ivf in my life ( only the last with Tourgeman) I had a total of 66 eggs retrieved and only the 3 fresh embryos that Tourgeman transferred became 3 healthy fetuses . And eventually my twin boys, born at 38.5 weeks and days, weighting 7.12 and 6.6 pounds and oz
( i got pregnant with triplets, but it was my choice to reduce to two after I got
high blood pressure at 11 weeks.
After losing 4 previous pregnancies I was not ready to lose anymore, and a triplet pregnancy at 42 with high blood pressure is not exactly an easy one).
I did 3 frozen transfer ( only the last with Tourgeman) transferred 2 embryos both times before dr Tourgeman and got pregnant and lost the pregnancy, the only frozen embryo left that I transferred with dr Tourgeman, the ONLY left, is my 5 y old daughter.
Out of 66 total eggs retrieved only the one transferred from dr Tourgeman became actual kids.
His laboratory is the best in the country, I have no doubt about it.
I am member of my local club of twins, out of all the members, at least 15 people are dr Tourgeman patients and are parents thanks to him.
Nobody else has such a high success rate.
His bed manners are fabulous, the nurses that take care of you before the retrieval are always there to listen to you, they know the struggle we are going trough and they are always ready to be supportive.
Its not an easy journey but HRC makes is more manageble.
Describe the protocols David Tourgeman used in your cycles at HRC and their degree of success.
I do not remember, was in 2010, but he adjusts the medicine at every blood work, and he knows what he is doing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC. (Assigned nurse: Vera)
Vera became like a sister to me, I could always call her, when happy or sad, during my pregnancy I could call her and vent to her.
I still love her after 7 years
Dr Tourgeman has a pic nic every year with his patients, seeing Vera and Rashona, ( another of dr Tourgeman staff) is one of the best part.
Showing them my kids who I wanted so bad and now they are reality is really special. I will always be grateful to dr Tourgeman and his staff
When I was pregnant with my daughter Vera called me to tell me that my hcg was positive, then she sent me a email in pink, that how thoughtful she has been with me, I will always love her for all these small details
