"I can't recommend them highly enough"
90%Reviewed 21 Apr 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
I was 45 when I had embryo adoption at Instituto Bernabeu. I had wanted children all my life but things had not worked out as planned and I was single and desperate for a child. I was told that I would have to wait for 2.5 years in the UK as I needed a donor embryo and success rates were very low. After 2 attempts at embryo adotion IB I now have a gorgeous, healthy boy who is 15 months old and I am considering another visit to IB for the same treatment to see if I can provide him with a sibling....

The clinic is so impressive - it looks immaculate and is very clean. The staff are all so friendly. My liaison officer was great and the whole process was made very easy through using Skype and emails - I cant recommend them highly enough - it was fantastic and made my dream of having a child come true!

"Your work is amazing!"
100%Reviewed 08 Feb 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: AI - Artificial Insemination
Dr. Juan Carlos Castillo is my consultant, he cares and he pays attention to my case. I speak highly of IB in terms of their service and customer focus attitude. Our coordinator Anastasia Utkina is excellent, very gentle, responsive and caring.
There was one unexpected incident happened and doctor Carlos quickly called and informed me and found the solution for the situation and that I had the embryo transferred successfully in January. I regret that I did not come to IB earlier, I had a few trial in other clinics in London, terrible experience and bad service you ever had. IB is just the best!

I am so glad my husband has chosen IB. The clinic itself is clean, bright, peaceful and friendly and the staff are helpful. We had a live link to the lab during embryo transfer. This really is the best care you could wish to receive. Thank you IB, Dr Castillo and Ana in particular, your work is amazing!

"Overjoyed with everything - I am currently pregnant"
100%Reviewed 14 Jul 2015 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Egg Donor, IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
I cannot speak more highly of the IB. From the the very first moment we met Dr Molliner and our co-ordinator Lara on Skype to our recent trip for IVF using donor eggs everything has been so well organised, reassuring and just wonderful. Everything was explained in detail and we knew exactly what to expect. I really can't compliment IB high enough, they are just the best! I am currently pregnant and we are overjoyed with everything that was done to look after my husband and myself at IB.

We chose the IB because my gynaecologist Michael Dooley in the UK recommended them and I am so glad he did. The clinic itself is spotless and the staff could not be more helpful. We even had a live link to the lab during embryo transfer, which we thought was brilliant. This really is the best care you could wish to receive. Thank you IB, Dr Molliner and Lara Giminez in particular, your work is amazing!

"I'm so glad"
100%Reviewed 22 Feb 2012 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Egg Donor, ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection, IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
I had many complications with IVF-ICSI cycles in the UK due to various causes, such as my husband's azoospermia. I'm now well into my 40's and had to turn to egg donation, but couldn't afford to be placed on a waiting list. I was recommended to Instituto Bernabeu in Alicante due to its prestige and results, and I'm so glad I went there because after just one cycle of donor egg treatment with sperm aspiration and ICSI, we're expecting a healthy baby girl in June!

"I was really impressed"
100%Reviewed 08 Feb 2012 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
I had repeated implantation failures with my previous treatments so I was referred to the specialists at Instituto Bernabeu, where they performed a diagnostic hysteroscopy and then a specific treatment tailored to my needs. I must say I was really impressed with the personal service and attention I received there, and the results will hopefully speak for themselves once I get my blood test done in a few days.
