i would have given a 0 star if there was a room for that. From scheduling appointments, consultation, staff, doctor… this office lacks professionalism in every level!! most especially the LVN called Alex. I was pretty determined to get my IVF done & become pregnant, so I decided to ignore all the red flags. I had 2 IVF attempts here & both failed. After generating 8+ eggs I was only able to use few of them for each attempt & for some reason that the embryologist and Dr Salem did not have better explanation what happen to the rest of the eggs which i was told was an A grade after 5 days incubation, I understand some would not pass the thawing process but now all that is questionable. Save your money & do your research! Don’t ignore the red flags like I did

Dr Rifaat Salem MD has been the greatest doctor I have ever experienced. He shares the details on what you need to know, gives you options, and is a pleasure to be around. The office is very good about fitting in appointments, especially on short notice, which is very much appreciated for someone like me with a busy work schedule. I have never had to wait either and find their process very efficient.

I am 41 and made the decision to freeze my eggs. My experience with Dr. Salem was extremely positive. He remained optimistic during my entire treatment as did his entire staff. Everyone at PRC was friendly and made me feel comfortable during the process. I was able to get 18 viable eggs! Thank you PRC for all your hard work!!!
