From our patients

We will always be grateful to the clinic for treating us with love and care.

My husband and I were recommended to the clinic via friends who all had positive experiences from a service perspective. We were not disappointed. My consultant Dr Saab was very professional and always gave us advice with compassion and patience whilst keeping us grounded at the same time. The service from our sanographers and nurses was also of a high standard. We were blessed in May with twins and will always be grateful to the clinic for leading us on this rollercoaster of a journey with love and care.

We remain ever so grateful to Dr Saab and all the CRGH staff.

We can’t thank Dr Saab enough for all his advice and guidance. After having 5 failed cycles in another clinic, Dr Saab’s meticulous expertise resulted in the birth of our son. We remain ever so grateful to him and all the CRGH staff.

A best-in-class experience with CRGH

A best-in-class experience with CRGH to freeze eggs, resulting in better than hoped for results and an stress-free and painless experience. I felt taken care of by a team that was empathetic, human and experts in their fields. Everyone worked seamlessly to monitor my progress and tailor my treatment to exactly how my body was responding and what I needed personally. Dr Saab who took the time to explain everything with a smile and who cared about my success.

They went above and beyond to check everything to bring peace of mind

I’m now happily pregnant after my first frozen embryo transfer attempt at CRGH and couldn’t be happier. My consultant Dr. Saab was so lovely and attentive all the way through and the care and attention I got at the clinic was consistent. They went above and beyond to check everything to bring peace of mind. I’m 39 now and have more embryos in the bank so will definitely be returning to CRGH to complete my family

Thank you Dr Saab and CRGH for a healthy and beautiful son

I was told by a previous fertility clinic that I would not be able to have children. I changed to CRGH due to their reputation and HFEA results and reviews. After one IVF and on second transfer at CRGH I become pregnant and gave birth to a healthy and beautiful son. Dr Saab and the team were always available to answer our questions and explained everything thoroughly and clearly and to change treatment when required. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic, particular Dr Saab. Thank you.

The whole team was very friendly and efficient

Incredible experience at CRGH. After 2 failed retrievals at clinics elsewhere, I had a successful retrieval, implant and I’m now holding my 2 month old.
The whole team was very friendly, efficient and left me feeling very confident. Phone calls were always answered, or responded to within the hour.
A special thanks to Dr. Saab, who explained everything he did thoroughly and didn’t have me feeling like he was trying to upsell me on treatments/drugs/tests that he didn’t feel I need.

We are extremely grateful to Dr Saab and CRGH

We moved to CRGH after having unsuccessful treatment at a different clinic. Dr Saab is knowledgeable and professional from the start and really made us feel like he could help and wanted us to succeed. All questions were answered promptly and we felt reassured we were in good hands. Our first transfer with CRGH was a success and I am currently sitting with our 6 day old little girl! Something we never believed would happen after 4 years of infertility and losses along the way.
We are extremely grateful to Dr Saab and CRGH for making our dream come true. Thank you.

The team made our dreams come true

After 6 losses before going to CRGH, we are so so grateful to Dr Saab for helping us get to this point and the birth of our perfect little rainbow baby! From our first consultation we felt so much more hopeful and Dr Saab seemed confident he could help us! Well, he and the team made our dreams come true! Everyone we dealt with there; doctors, nurses, sonographers, anaesthetists etc, were all so lovely and comforting and patient! Would 100% recommend and if we decide to try for a second baby in the future, we will come straight back to CRGH!
