Con mi pareja Amanda hemos recurrido al doctor Akerman para tener un hijo por medio de los tratamientos que ofrece en su centro. Mi niño nació por FIV, agradezco al doctor por su calidez y por acompañarnos con honestidad y profesionalismo en todo el proceso hasta la llegada de nuestro bebé.

He recurrido al doctor Fernando Akerman para lograr mi sueño de convertirme en madre ya que no tengo pareja y todo ha resultado como lo esperaba. Mi niño nació sano y en perfectas condiciones gracias a un tratamiento de inseminación intrauterina. Estoy muy agradecida al doctor y a todo su equipo por acompañarme y ayudarme en todo el proceso para poder tener a mi hijo.

He realizado un tratamiento de FIV con el Dr Akerman y realmente estoy muy satisfecha con el tratamiento y la atención recibida. Las instalaciones son muy cómodas y confortables, pero más allá de eso el trato de los distintos equipos, tanto de enfermería como de administración, siempre fue muy bueno y fue para mí lo más importante durante todo el proceso. Pulgar arriba para el Dr. Akerman y su equipo.

No soy de dejar comentarios en sitios web, pero me parece importante dejar mi aporte. Si estás pensando hacer un tratamiento en USA, te recomiendo al Dr. Akerman. Su centro en Miami es maravilloso, las instalaciones son amplias, cómodas, tienes sitio para aparcar. Pero por sobre todas las cosas, el Dr y todo su equipo trabajan con gran profesionalidad. Te encontrarás en buenas manos, tuve una excelente experiencia en mi tratamiento de FIV.

Emoción me invade al escribir estas lineas. Luego de un dificil camino por no poder quedar embarazada durante muchos años, tuve la dicha de encontrar al Dr. Akerman. El y su gente me hicieron sentir muy comoda durante el stress del IVF, que finalmente se reflejo en mi actual embarazo. El es un profesional de primer nivel, un ecelente medico, y mejor persona. Siempre acompañandote durante el tratamiento. Gracias a Dios y la Virgen por tanta alegria, esperando ansiosa el nacimiento de mi baby.

I'm 4 months pregnant and don't have enough words to thank Doctor Akerman and his team. He is an amazing doctor. He answers all your questions, giving you an honest and straight answer and peace of mind. The staff is amazing, and every single person was extremely professional and warm and supportive .It took me two months to get an appointment to see the doctor, but it was worth the wait. I did IVF with the biopsy and it was very stressful procedure. Thanks to them I did it. Thank you!Thank you!

Struggling with infertility for years, I saw Dr. Akerman. I did clomid before, then went to see him. I have a boy who is seven. I was shocked my husband's sperm was abnormal. Dr Akerman ordered tests and put him on clomid! After an insemination, I've got pregnant. I delivered last winter and my second son is now 3 months old. I have only nice words for Dr. Akerman. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I have referred two of my friends to him, pregnant now! He is a terrific doctor!!

No hay palabras para expresar mi agradecimiento al Dr. Akerman. Desde la primera visita a su centro en Miami cuando escuchó atentamente mi historia, hasta que la enfermera Teresa me llamo con la fantástica noticia que estaba embarazada. Todos me hicieron sentir muy comoda durante este periodo que fue tan estresante en mi vida. Gracias a Dios en unas semanas nacerá mi hija. El medico Akerman y su equipo son fantasticos. El es muy serio y sabe mucho. Los recomiendo sin duda, son los mejores.

Embarazada de cinco meses gracias al Dr. Akerman. Fernando es un excelente doctor y mucho mejor persona. Es un medico que siempre esta a tu lado, te brinda todo el tiempo del mundo. Nos explico todo de una manera muy completa y simple. Por eso debe ser que algunas veces se retrasa. Meili, Teresa y Nicola son excelentes enfermeras tambien. Dios quiera mi embarazo continue sanito como hasta ahora, fue muy dificil el proceso del Invitro. No tengo mas qué palabras de agradecimiento. Mil gracias.

Dr. Akerman is the best fertility specialist I've seen in my life. I consulted other two that rejected me and gave me only egg donation as an option. I did IVF and now I'm pregnant and ready to deliver my baby. He is a wonderful doctor that always listen to you and spend all the time you need, you never feel rushed. The nurses are all great, so caring about you. I strongly recommend him and the Fertility Center
