Dr. Madanes was very patient listening to my husband and I discuss our concerns. He gave us thorough answers and took a lot of time explaining what we would need to do in terms of diagnosis and treatment. The staff was pretty nice, too. Overall, we are excited to be undergoing IVF with him and can't wait to get started!
