16/04/14 5 5 5 5 We had a wonderful (and successful) experience with Dr. Bayrak and his staff. Dr. Bayrak is extremely thorough and knowledgable. He always spent as much time as necessary to answer all of our questions and ease all of our worries making us feel like we were his only patients. The staff responded promptly to all of our other questions. We truly felt that they all cared about us and our needs. We are forever grateful to Dr. Bayrak and his staff. We now have an amazing little boy that we cannot imagine our life without!  Respond

26/03/14 5 5 5 5 I was referred to Dr Bayrak by my brother in law. We had been trying and were looking find someone who could help us. Dr Bayrak put as at ease immediately. He is very knowledegable about what he does and most of all, from day one, I felt I could put my complete trust in him. Throughout the treatment, he always answered the questions we had no matter how trivial they were and that included on weekends and holidays. The office itself functions as a well oiled machine, they (Linda and Sylvia) took care of EVERYTHING including the insurance hassles. Sherri is very helpful too with questions regarding the medications/injections/­first pregnancy worries etc. Overall we have been very very happy with Dr Bayrak and have already referred him to two of my friends

13/01/14 3 5 3 4 Dr. Bayrak is a nice person but he will nickel and dime you. Very expensive compared to other places. Be sure to ask if Dr. Bayrak is planning any vacations BEFORE you start an ivf cycle. He was gone for 2.5 weeks on vacation during our ivf cycle. He had a substitute physician filling in during this time who was literally unable to find my wife’s ovaries on ultrasound. Dr. Bayrak has offices in West LA, Pasadena, and Inland Empire. Be prepared to travel to west LA during rush hour. All egg retrievals and embryo transfers happen in Beverly Hills. I didn’t think this would be a big deal until the morning of our embryo transfer we had to wake up at 5am and then get stuck in 2 hour traffic on the way back to Pasadena. This adds significant stress to an already highly stressful process. After our failed cycle with Dr. Bayrak we quickly moved to HRC in Pasadena which was a much better fit—more flexible hours, no fighting LA traffic, much less expensive, and it was successful.

06/11/13 5 5 5 5 We were trying for more than an year and frustrated. Luckily we met with Dr Bayrak who listened to our concerns and made us get conceived on our very first try of IUI. Dr Bayrak is so knowledgeable in treating infertility. We had an issue at 6 weeks pregnant and doctor was available over the phone during midnight which was very surprising to us. Not only the doctor but Sylvia is also the best. She was very friendly and makes patients very comfortable.  Respond

20/08/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bayrak and his staff are the best! I had very personalized care with Dr. Bayrak performing all the ultrasounds himself. He was always available to answer questions. Sheri responded to questions via email/phone very quickly. The Pasadena clinic was a breeze and I was in and out of appointments in no time. On our second round of IVF we conceived and now have a beautiful and healthy little boy. I couldn't give Dr. Bayrak a higher recommendation!  Respond

23/01/13 5 5 5 5 Both by DH and I are over 35. We were having trouble getting pregnant on our own for over a year and didn't want to waste any more time so we asked our OB for a referral to a fertility specialist and Dr. Bayrak was in the next building. I'm considered high risk because of my age and the fact that I was a diabetic before getting pregnant. Before seeing him I went to those free seminars offered by a Big Fertility clinic as well as doing some research on it and was discouraged by my odds just because I was over 35. When I met Dr. Bayrak and his office staff, they were very professional but very personable and we felt very comfortable from the moment we walked in. He was very attentive and detailed in all the concerns we had and then some. On our first IUI try we got pregnant and I am about to deliver my baby boy in 4 weeks thanks to Dr. Bayrak.

03/09/12 5 5 5 5 After 3 1/2 years of failed fertility attempts, my husband and I met with Dr. Bayrak at my OB's referral. Our first meeting with Dr. Bayrak was over two hours. He poured over our records and gave us information that no other doctor seemed to be able to - my "unexplained infertility" was indeed explained. Dr. Bayrak had a clear protocol for me and, though could not guarantee anything, was hopeful. We decided we would do one round of IVF with Dr. Bayrak, and then we would move on. 6 wks after our first meeting, we got the news we had dreamed about for years. Our daughter is now 13 months old. Dr. Bayrak is kind and patient and takes the time that other doctors do not. He speaks to you in a language that is understandable and always makes you feel that every question you have is worth asking. His office staff is amazing. They are approachable and always respond in a timely manner. We were so happy we decided to go back one more time --- our second child is due in March.  Respond

01/09/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bayrak, Linda, Sheri and Sylvia are wonderful! We went to Dr. Bayrak as a second recommendation for fertility as the first was not working out after 3 years of trying. His Pasadena office is very nice, yet modest, which makes it very personal. You don't feel like a number. He has a talented staff and you will know them all by name. If you email any of them, they are quick to reply. You also have his number and I used it once late on a weekend and he still kindly picked up and walked me through any questions I had regarding meds and/or concerns. My husband felt very comfortable with him and his staff too. I was defensive and skeptical after my prior experience and they handled that very well too. I got pregnant after one macro IVF with them. They were supportive through the next 12 weeks until "graduation" back to my OBGYN. I had a scare with the hormones and had some cramping at about 5 weeks. Dr. Bayrak kept me calm, upped the hormones and all was fine the rest of the 12 weeks.

22/07/12 5 5 5 5 This clinic is very personal, not crowded, you feel as if you are their only patient and that is very reassuring . The whole experience was gentle and stress free- and best of all - the result- I am now pregnant with twins . If anyone is having problems with fertility I strongly recommend they go to this clinic - there is no better doctor and you could not be in safer hands- not only that , the actual experience of doing the treatment is in a different league- stress free, calm and gentle- just what you need to help you go through IVF.

08/05/12 5 5 5 5 My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant and have a baby for the last couple years. I have Endometriosis and my husband has low motility. Dr. Bayrak and his staff were great through out the process. We were so lucky to have ivf work the first time around. We now are expecting in November 2012! I can't thank Dr. Bayrak and his staff enough for helping us make our dream come true. They were all just as happy as we were that ivf worked for us. I would and will always recommend Dr. Bayrak for ivf he is great.

22/01/12 5 5 5 5 Dr. Bayrak is truly an expert in the fertility field. I went through two fresh IVF cycles and one frozen cycle with Dr. Bayrak. The last resulted in a beautiful, healthy baby boy. He is extremely knowledgeable about the newest treatments, thoughtful, straightforward, responsive, caring and sensitive to how we felt going through the process. I would highly recommend him to any couple struggling with infertility.

11/01/12 5 5 5 5 Hands down the BEST doctor/patient experience I've ever had. Dr. Bayrak and his staff are always on time, very knowledgeable and helpful. Both doctor and staff return calls within 24 hours (usually a couple of hours) and no question is dumb. My husband (42 y/o) and I (33 y/o) tried to get pregnant on our own for over a year. Sensing something was wrong, we finally looked into fertility treatment and found Dr. Bayrak. He immediately did a full medical work-up and gave me a diagnosis that my own ObGyn- after 10 years had not caught. Dr. Bayrak did a succesful surgery for me in 2010 and also helped us get pregnant with our first child through fertility treatment. I'm due 1/22/12 and cannot be any happier!! If I ever have problems in the future, I would absolutely go back. Linda & Sheri are part of his staff and VERY supportive.

18/07/11 5 5 5 5 Highly recomend Dr.Bayrak to anyone who is in need of fertility procedures & treatments. His staff is very friendly & informative. I recieved my own IVF Cordinator Sheri who was very helpful on everything I had questions or concerned about (even if it was silly). Also when I wanted to talk to Dr.Bayrak directly for a question I was able to. I would recomend his services to any of my family or friends! I'm happy to announce I'm pregnant with twins, Thank you Dr. Bayrak!!!

22/11/10 3 4 1 4 Although our outcome (2x) was not a success. I did find Dr. Bayrak to be very personalble, professional, and knowedgable. However I feel his practice is too focused on money. We were nickle and dimed. After "opting out" it took way too long to be refunded and we did not get the full amount that we should have. I would not reccomend his practice even though he is a nice guy.  Respond
