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!!!
