How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng is absolutely amazing! She has the best bedside manner, positive, and sweet. We look forward to every visit with her. She is smart and informative. Before any procedure, testing, or any prescribed meds., she would walk us through it so we knew what we were expecting. She is always asking me how I'm feeling which is important to me because as you can imagine, my anxiety is off the roof, and emotions are all over as I'm going on this fertility. She reassures me and makes me feel safe while under her care. She would come up with the next game plan when something doesn't work out. She brought HOPE back into our lives and we couldn't thank her enough for all she's done as our doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Ask all the questions you are curious about.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng and all her wonderful staff treated my husband and I with extra care. They were sensitive to our situation as they knew we have been trying for a long time since (almost 3 years after our miscarriage). We were greeted with smiles every single time we come into the office. Each procedure we had was catered to our bodies and Dr. Meng is always coming up with the next game plan for us when something does not work out. We always leave the office feeling HOPEFUL that we will conceive with Dr. Meng's care.
Describe the protocols Fangyin Meng used in your cycles at California Dream Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We had two IVF transfers here. Our first one was a natural IVF cycle. We started with injections (Follistim) for the egg retrieval, we were able to retrieve 30 eggs. We did our retrieval in June, and did our first embryo transfer in August-- which resulted with a negative pregnancy. I was then diagnosed with Endometriosis, so I was on two months treatment of Lupron. After that, I started injecting myself with meds again this time, it was Progesterone in oil and Estradiol to prepare myself for the next transfer. The next IVF transfer was called HRT-FET Embryo Transfer. We did this transfer in January, and now we are 15 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at California Dream Fertility Center.
They were compassionate and sweet. They were always positive and they became our cheerleaders cheering us on through this fertility journey. They always emailed me my medication calendar and was always ready to answer questions I had. I couldn't ask for a better team at this clinic, we are grateful for each of them.
Describe your experience with California Dream Fertility Center.
there were no weakness, as a new patient, if you are reading this, I would say go get a consult with Dr. Meng, she will take care of you. If something doesn't work out, she will be sure to help you figure it out. She has such a caring heart and her goal is to help you conceive, to make your dreams come true. Honestly, before seeing her, we were really hopeless, and each time we have a doctors visit, we leave feeling amazing, that we are closer to our baby each time. We started our journey February 2023 with a consultation, and January 2024, we became pregnant with our miracle.

Dr. Meng is very attentive to the patient's needs and always patient's best interests first. We discussed treatment options and pro and cons for ICSI and frozen embryos and etc. Dr. Meng's professional knowledge base seems to be up to date. I like the fact she doesn't use phrases like "that's how we do things" but rather explains her recommendations with research findings in the fields. She's never shy to share her two cents even on personal choices (gender selections, when to transfer) and of course professional recommendations on single embryo transfer vs. two. She always greets patients with smiles and a cautiously optimistic attitude. From there I know she's having everything under control and I'm in good hands
The strengths [of California Dream Fertility Center] are very obvious that the doctor CARES. Since the doctor takes full ownership of the clinic, she has control over the staff and the pace of the clinic...doctor is very hardworking in PERSONALLY reviewing patients' records and truly providing individualized care. Weakness from my experience is that because the clinic is still at its growing stage, you don't get a full package of everything, compared to some more established practices. But the doctor and nursing staff are very knowledgable and are always ready to answer questions.

Get your questions prepared and she always welcomes challenging questions. Don't expect the doctor will tell you "yes, you'll be successful no matter what" but rather walk through the specific steps with Dr. Meng that will take you to a better result.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng always listens to my concerns closely and addresses each and every one with her knowledge and backs it up with stats. She cares about patient's feelings and does her best to ease my anxiety by examples of her own.
Describe the protocols Fangyin Meng used in your cycles at California Dream Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I know I'd do IVF to begin with as I've had consultations and prelim checkups from other clinics. So the treatment strategy was simple for me and just followed instructions when I had my period. I started with Menopur and Gonal-F on CD 3 and minor dosage adjustments with FSH and E2 levels. Since I had PCOS but not severe, Dr. Meng was carefully dosing my medications and closely monitoring my E2 level to not overly stimulate my ovaries. Cetrotide from CD6 and trigger with HCG and Lupron. No surprise no drama and everything went smoothly with egg retrieval. The transfer was also very smooth. I let the clinic know when I had my period and made the appointment to come in for an ultrasound then use letrozole for 5 days to control egg growth (otherwise, with my PCOS condition, eggs are growing slow and/or all over the place).
Describe your experience with your nurse at California Dream Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Audrey)
Dr. Meng has a small clinic and is very organized and cheerful. All the ladies are pleasant and know what they are doing. Nursing staff are on top of labs and all medical records (I have about 100+ pages of them) and they keep good records of what services were performed in their clinic.
Describe your experience with California Dream Fertility Center.
The strengths are very obvious that the doctor CARES. Since the doctor takes full ownership of the clinic, she has control over the staff and the pace of the clinic. I think this is key to receiving quality and consistent service from a medical office, besides top-notch professional care from the providers themselves. Also, the doctor is very hardworking in PERSONALLY reviewing patients' records and truly providing individualized care. Weakness from my experience is that because the clinic is still at its growing stage, you don't get a full package of everything, compared to some more established practices. But the doctor and nursing staff are very knowledgable and are always ready to answer questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center.
Professional fee for monitoring and procedures is separate for lab-related fees. Egg retrieval cycle including ICSI, and a set number of PGT testings for all developed blasts is slightly under 20K early 2021, and my Rx was about 3K. The transfer cycle totaled 4K ish including medication.
Describe Fangyin Meng's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at California Dream Fertility Center.
Dr always recommends one at a time for my case since I have no prior miscarriage or failed transfer. She explained various increased risk factors for multiples and based on my age (not in a huge rush of having many babies), Dr. Meng encouraged me to stay with one and make sure it's PGT tested for better success rate.

My journey to fatherhood through surrogacy, as a single male, was made remarkably smooth and respectful thanks to my surrogacy doctor. From the start, their approach was empathetic and human-centric, focusing not just on the medical process but also on my emotional well-being. Communication was clear and constant, ensuring I was well-informed at every step. What stood out was the respect and dignity with which I was treated, making me feel valued and understood despite societal biases against single male parenthood. The doctor's expertise and meticulous handling of both the medical and legal aspects of surrogacy significantly reduced my stress levels and built a foundation of trust. Moreover, the care extended to the surrogate was commendable, emphasizing their health and comfort throughout the pregnancy. This journey, guided by professionalism and compassion, not only fulfilled my dream of fatherhood but also highlighted the importance of treating individuals in the surrogacy process with kindness and respect. I highly recommend my surrogacy doctor to anyone, especially single males, embarking on this path.

Dr. Meng pays close attention to her patients...Every time after the lab test, she would call me personally to adjust my medicine dosage.

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®?
Dr. Meng pays close attention to her patients. I had about 5 times V ultrasound and blood test before egg retrieval. Every time after the lab test, she would call me personally to adjust my medicine dosage. She performed the V ultrasound herself to closely monitor the follicle growth. I've never seen any doctor that is so diligent in Orange County area. She answered all my questions whenever I call her or text her on WeChat. I kept talking to her on daily basis, which really helped to ease my anxiety. She would even answer your silly questions that's out of her job scope. She is very generous with her time even though she has a busy schedule. She is special because she cares from the bottom of her heart, she always goes out of her way to help people. I'm 31, I retrieved 10 eggs, 8 fertilized, 6 turned into blastocysts. I'm happy with the result, I think it's largely due to her care and the embryo lab.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fangyin Meng at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®?
Just trust her and ask her anything that would make you feel ease. I used WeChat to talk to her during the process for simple questions. You are welcome to do that, but of course respect her time as well. Also, try to change your diet to low-carb high protein, and exercise a lot before you start this whole journey, not only because that can help with egg quality, but also because you won't be able to exercise for almost a month.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Fangyin Meng at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®?
I was first referred by a friend, she had a very good experience with Dr. Meng. So I went to her, and I had an amazing journey as well. Dr. Meng is very easy-going and gentle to her patients. She is extremely caring and loving to everyone. She eases your anxiety and makes you feel in good hands. She gives extensive care to everyone. I initially told her that I have breast cancer history, so she ensured me that she will control my E2 level within the safe range during IVF. I didn't feel any discomfort during the process.
Describe the protocols Fangyin Meng used in your cycles at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix® and their degree of success.
Dr. Meng used Lezetrol to reduce my E2 level. I use menopur 75uint in the morning and ganol F at night, which changes from 100units to 200units. She would basically change my dosage after every lab test, which is almost every other day after day 4. I had my trigger shot on day 10. This varies a lot among patients. That's why you need a doctor that cares.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®.
I remember AJ and Cathy, they are very helpful and efficient. one tip, the patient portal can be wrong, so always listen to the doctor.
Describe your experience with OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®.
The clinic doesn't look too big, after all, it is in Newport Beach. But it is very efficient, I never had to wait a long time in the waiting room. I tried to book consultation with the clinics, it would usually take a while. But Dr. Meng's clinic is easy to schedule appointments. There had been some mistakes, but nothing major.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Fangyin Meng at OC Fertility® + OC Biogenix®.
the whole IVF cost is about 17k plus medicine.That includes doctors cost and embryo lab cost. which is about the same as other Orange County clinics. Dr. Meng also went out her way to help me to save money because I am a cancer patient. Embryo lab cost is about 12.5k, 10k if without PGT-A testing.

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at CCRM Newport Beach?
Dr. Meng is a great doctor! Before I knew her, I have miscarried lots of times and I lost confidence to have a baby. I chose her because on the one hand, she has a strong background and I read all her reviews that showed she is a wonderful doctor; on the other hand, she is bilingual that she can speak Mandarin and English. I know it would be a very complicated process to have an IVF baby, smooth communication with the IVF doctor is the key. Over the past year, Dr. Meng tried different ways to help me make my dream come true-- have a baby girl. For sure it was very challenging because I am very old at 43 years old, and my body situation is not good for the baby. Dr.Meng always encouraged me and showed her strong confidence. Now, I successfully got pregnant and it looks very well. The HCG level is wonderful and the Ultrasound test is great at present. It has been 3 weeks since I got embryo transferred. I graduated successfully from her. Now I have been keeping on doing regular tests with my gynecologist. It was such an amazing journey with Dr. Meng. Many thanks to Dr.Meng and her team for their great job and professional service. I am so lucky to meet Dr. Meng in my life. Thank you, Dr.Meng, you brought new hope to me. I will highly recommend Dr.Meng to those people who are suffering the same pains as me. Good luck to you.

Describe Fangyin Meng's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at California Dream Fertility Center.
I requested to transfer 2 embryos several times, Dr. Meng said no and explained to me the reason. At that time, I still felt my body can carry twins. The reality is, Dr. Meng is absolutely right, and I am not a good candidate for twins, and luckily, I am with singleton now, which makes my risk much lower. I really appreciate her professional judgement.

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
It was fate that I met Dr. Meng. When I was undergoing a fertility test at a reproductive center in China, I was introduced to Dr. Meng by chance, knowing that she could help me. So I contacted Dr. Meng remotely and had my first video consultation. Dr. Meng gave me a feeling of being quite practical and direct. After analyzing my situation, she also gave me many direct suggestions, which saved time and was simple and effective. I greatly appreciate this. Of course, besides Dr. Meng, I also consulted several other clinics and doctors, but I feel that none of them are as professional as Dr. Meng. So I arranged my itinerary to start this cycle alone from China. Throughout the process, I felt the care of doctors and nurses. Imagine, after undergoing surgery alone, when you wake up from anesthesia, it is Dr. Meng's warm hand touching your forehead that awakens you, and then gently tell you the results of the surgery. After two cycles, the result of pgt-a test the blastocyst completely beyond expectations. I am so fortunate to have met Dr. Meng and her team, and have recommended this clinic to my friends who need it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?

During the year-long IVF process, I always felt that Dr. Meng put my feelings and needs first. The warm atmosphere made me feel like I became a friend of Dr. Meng...designed my cycle plan professionally and patiently, relieved my anxiety, answered my confusion, avoided unnecessary waste in drug use to save the expense. I am very grateful to Dr. Meng for suggesting that I add another egg retrieval before implantation, which not only relieves the stress caused by the lack of blastocysts, but also creates the possibility for the second child in the future.
This clinic [California Dream Fertility Center] has professional doctor, caring nurses, flexible services and warm atmosphere. Cooperated with superb surgery center and embryologist team, the entire IVF cycle became very smooth and made me feel confident and relaxed...The team treated me like a family member. They care what I care and answer my questions patiently always. I’d like to thank Abby, Audrey, Isabella as their gentleness melted my heart every time.
How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
As a patient with endometriosis and severely degraded ovarian function, I realized that my IVF journey would be very tortuous. However, I was still trapped in the unprecedented despair after the first failed cycle. The completely uncontrollable sense of powerlessness and unknown during the entire cycle made me feel like a guinea pig on the assembly line, accompanied by endless anxiety and confusion about the future. When my husband and I were sitting in doctor's office and asked him what we could do, the doctor said sorry, there's nothing you can do. At that moment, I realized that it was time to change clinic and doctor. In June 2021, my husband saw Dr. Meng's free IVF lecture on the Internet that cleared many of our concerns. After a remote video communication as we lived in the east coast, we firmly believed in choosing Dr. Meng, and immediately started the preliminary work. Dr. Meng is a cheerful and highly thoughtful doctor who can patiently explain highly professional knowledge to patients in easy-to-understand language. I strongly believe that IVF is not just dependent on hormonal drugs, but a complex process that combines physical and psychological states. During the year-long IVF process, I always felt that Dr. Meng put my feelings and needs first. The warm atmosphere made me feel like I became a friend of Dr. Meng and her team. They designed my cycle plan professionally and patiently, relieved my anxiety, answered my confusion, avoided unnecessary waste in drug use to save the expense. I am very grateful to Dr. Meng for suggesting that I add another egg retrieval before implantation, which not only relieves the stress caused by the lack of blastocysts, but also creates the possibility for the second child in the future. Facts have proved that this plan is very suitable for my situation and needs. I would like to thank Dr. Meng, she always sent warm greetings to me when I was confused and vulnerable. It was her excellent professional skills that made this beautiful thing a reality.

Just trust and patience. You will get what you want.

How was your experience with Fangyin Meng at California Dream Fertility Center?
Dr. Meng had all the qualities I needed in a fertility doctor. She was confident, comforting, careful, and patient. She helped me go from feeling hopeless to hopeful. She thoroughly examined my case and even did further research to help me make a well informed decision. She was honest about her expectations throughout the whole process. Even though my case did not seem ideal, she gave me a better outcome than we both expected. I had large endometriomas on both ovaries so we did not expect to get many eggs but she was able to retrieve more than we even discussed.
