(2021, USA parents) Dr. Ringler was absolutely wonderful and provided structured, practical guidance throughout our journey. Success on the first try. Absolutely recommend Dr. Ringler and the CFP team.
(2021, USA parents) CFP were brilliant! The whole team were so lovely and professional. We had Dr. Guy Ringler and he was incredible. We will use them again for our second surrogacy journey.
(2020, International parents) We worked with CFP and were really happy. The entire staff and Dr. Ringler have been very professional, listening to our needs and caring.
(2020, International parents) Internationally renowned - felt safe and secure with CFP from day one. May not be the cheapest but for arguably the most critical aspect of the of the journey, Dr. Ringler and his team were worth every cent. Would not hesitate to recommend!
(2020, International parents) In fact, we think the expertise of Dr. Guy Ringler at the California Fertility Partners is the main reason we have 2 beautiful and extremely healthy boys in just one shot!! In fact, there was just 1 embryo transfer in which have been transferred 2 embryos as we've agreed with Dr. Ringler. And all the previous treatment for the surrogate have been successful and the embryos transfer too, as the 2 embryos stuck and we've got these wonderful and magical boys. All the communication from the distance was great and as far as we've been informed, the surrogate was treated as a Queen by all the staff at the Clinic.
(2020, USA parents) CFP has been such a dream to work with! Dr. Ringler is incredibly knowledgeable and we felt like we were in extremely capable hands. From beginning to end from my husband and I's perspective, our surrogate's perspective, and our egg donor's perspective we all felt like we were in an environment that was welcoming, safe and, most importantly, filled with a staff that got results. We were lucky and felt very blessed that we had several viable embryos and that our first transfer took. We know that we were in that excellent position because of Dr. Ringler's expertise and experience. We also loved working with our nurse Donna who had a wonderful warmth and sense of humor. Dr. Ringler always made us feel special and that the journey we were going on was also special. And not that it matters, but we loved the decor in their lobby. They have great taste!
(2019, USA parents) Dr. Ringler is a genius and I have never worked with a clinic that was so amazing. We went through 2 previous clinics trying to get pregnant and Dr. Ringer was able to get us pregnant on the first try!! Shelly is amazing and I can't say enough about how professional and high tech they are. We love them!!!
(2019, International Parents) Dr. Ringler is the best!
(2019, International parents) I work with Dr. Ringler who is very good and achieved success on the first transfer.
(2019, International parents) All the explanations were very clear and the process was very simple.
(2017, USA parents) Dr. Ringler can come across as stoic but his factual approach ended up being so helpful. And his smile for us on transfer day warmed our hearts.
(2017, International parents) A little bit more expensive than other clinics but really professional, personal and definitively worth it!
