Patient Satisfaction

With Dr. Tur-Kaspa I really felt cared for, encouraged, and supported. He listened carefully, explained, and created a plan that was comfortable with me and my husband... But the result is the most important - I have a healthy pregnancy and I couldn’t be happier.
Dr. Cohen is my hero! We have a beautiful, healthy baby boy thanks to him. If you’re struggling with infertility, I’d recommend you see him...he is incredibly intelligent and an experienced expert, but he’s also very compassionate, kind, and understanding.
