The following link raises some interesting thoughts regarding rants and raves about doctors on the internet. I’m sure what will follow is the same consideration regarding services — including surrogacy agencies, egg donation agencies, clinics around the world, etc. I guess more ‘food for thought’ that we should not just blindly trust what we read on the web and before making any very important decisions – like choosing a doctor, a clinic or an agency – do your research. Here at Global IVF, Inc – we want you to be an educated consumer and an educated global patient.  That is our main goal!
