There aren't enough words in the English language to describe how wonderful Dr. Palter and GCIVF are!! Compassionate, caring, empathetic, professional, courteous, efficient, knowledgeable and just plain fabulous!!!! My beautiful 5 year old son is proof that Dr. Palter is dedicated to helping people fulfill their dreams of becoming parents. I tell anyone and everyone that needs help with fertility about GCIVF!

This is a "one size fits all" factory. You are forced to take medicine longer than you may need so that you align with the other patients going thru ivf that month. After a failed cycle I was left with a 2 minute phone call to tell me my eggs were all poor quality and that I needed a genetic test that would take a month for results.. after a month of anxiously waiting results I had to call them. Luckily I just had an excellent cycle at my new clinic and funny enough no egg quality issue.

I wish I did not have to give any stars to enter my review. Very unprofessional and cold hearted. Wish we never went there . Deeply saddened by this whole awful experience.

There are not enough negative words in the dictionary to desirable how awful this practice is. Not only is the doctor ( I use that term loosely ) money hungry his staff is one of the most unprofessional bunch I have ever encounter. If you are not rich or have insurance RUN from this evil, money sucking man. He left me so heartbroken and broke I am just recovering from the trauma he inflicted.

I would recommend Gold Coast IVF to anyone who needs help. Dr. Palter is an amazing doctor and I was very comfortable knowing that there is hope to having children. He has an excellent staff and answers questions and they also helped me through the process without any worry. I have 3 beautiful children thanks to the dedication of Dr. Palter and his staff.

Dr. Palter and his staff are simply amazing. From the moment you walk through the door, you are treated like family; greeted by name, and always with a smile . My questions and concerns were answered in a timely fashion, and in a kind, compassionate manner. I cannot say enough about the incredible nursing staff, who are among the most caring, professional individuals I have come to know. Dr. Palter himself has a warm and friendly bedside manner, and it is evident that he truly cares about every

Words cannot express how much I love this place. When I came to Dr. Palter I was heartsick and pretty much giving up that I could ever have a baby. the first minute I walked in I knew this was a special place. After so many doctors that told me No Dr. Palter helped me. Every staff member made me feel at home and I called him every day! Don't give up! Other infertility doctors told me it was too late for me but I gave it one more try with Dr. Palter and GCIVF. Now I have my beautiful daughter!

This is the most AMAZING fertility center anywhere. I went there after not being successful 3 other places and I read GCIVF had the top success rate in the USA! No only was I successful but the process was night and day better than the other places. It is run like boutique one on one center. Everyone knew who I was --- everyone knew my next step. Dr Palter was always available and made sure I was comfortable-- he tells it like it is but I was sick of doctors lying to me and just saying do

Underneath the friendly veneer of smiles, hugs, and talk of miracles, there is an evil, ugly side to Dr. Palter's office. We were able to achieve natural pregnancy without the help of this facility. Staff is super rude. Made us wait for nearly 2 hours at our appointment where he told us we most likely wouldnt conceive naturally (meanwhile we were already pregnant when receiving the news). Only in it for the money and tried to upsell us on the very expensive IUI. Look elsewhere!

My experience with Dr.Palter was extremely awful. His bedside manner was phony. He is definitely in it for the money. After many years of trying to have a child this so called doctor gave me and my family false hope. I found a wonderful doctor and at the age of 39 we are 7 months along. This clinic staff is okay. Like I mentioned before the his bedside manner is so phony that one leaves his office feeling nauseous. I wish I did not have to give this quack any stars.
