12/07/14 5 5 5 5 I had IVF twice with Dr Abdallah after trying IUI with clomid twice. My husband and I tried for years to have a baby on our own with no success. I was able to get pregnant with our second cycle and now have a wonderful baby girl. He never tried to push IVF on us. He recommended IVF only after exhausting all other options. I would definitely recommend him and his staff is wonderful!  Respond

08/07/14 5 5 5 5 It is hard to convey the amount of respect and love my husband and I have for American Reproductive Center. We like most had one heck of a journey in trying to conceive our daughter. Things looked hopeless for awhile, we truly felt that no one medically really cared if we conceived, were able to carry a child, or were emotionally/ physically able to deal with all the challenges. That is until we went to ARC. Dr. Maher Abdallah and the staff were nothing short of angels in our lives. Jason and I were hesitant to begin treatment, but we wanted a family. The staff at ARC held our hand ever step of the way. They made the process an exciting one. We felt like we meant something, finally a physician and his staff really cared. If I can give one word of advise it would be to go and meet Dr. Abdallah and the staff, your life will forever be changed. Don't get discouraged it may take more than once for the process to work, it did for us. But it worked and we are expecting our daughter 1-7-15.

15/05/14 5 5 5 5 My husband & I are forever grateful to Dr Abdallah, today we are the proud parents of a baby girl. Because of him I was able to experience the joy and excitement of pregnancy, the birth of our miracle qdaughter. These were all dreams of ours that we were not sure would happen. Dr. Abdallah is an amazing, knowledgeable and caring Dr. We always felt as if we were not just a number, but he truly cared about making our dreams of being a parent come true. After being seen by numerous other dr's with no explanation as to why I was not getting pregnant, Dr. A was able to tell me with just a few tests. Anyone struggling with infertility I would recommend without hesitation Dr Abdallah. There are many emotions that come with infertility all of which he & his staff are sensitive to. Upon giving birth I was told by a nurse that ivf parents make such great parents, this is so true as we know what a gift babies are. He and his staff make an amazing team and we are so thankful to them all!

02/12/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Abdallah was recommended to me by my OB. He was always honest and encouraging. His staff was very friendly and always made me feel like a priority. Sandra the MA and Ashley the secretary put up with my many questions and calls and I am very fond of them. I got pregnant with my first child on my second try. Dr. Abdallah said I would be pregnant within three tries and he was right. I owe them more than they know. I will definitely be going back for my next child.

03/02/13 5 5 5 5 I was Dr. Abdallah's last IVF cycle in his old IVF center in Rancho Mirage before his move to the new huge IVF center in Palm Springs.I got pregnant on first attempt with twins. My first ultrasound was in his new IVF center in Palm Springs. I can not describe the joy my husband and I experienced! My husband came back with pastries. we did the T-21 blood test to make sure our babies are normal and we know that one of them (at least) is a boy. We found out at 10 weeks because we did not want to do the PGD, where he tests the embryos before transfer, that Dr. A recommended. I am 13 weeks pregnant now. Had bleeding only once otherwise it has been great just some nausea. Thank you Dr. Abdallah for the twins and for understanding our financial issues and all the help. You cared and that is what makes you special to us. I already told everyone I know in Indio and my doctor spoke highly of you.Thank you Lynette and everyone at Rancho Mirage Fertility Center/ American Reproductive Centers.

09/01/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Abdallah is the best out there. We had previously done two IVF cycles with another center with no luck. We were very nervous to proceed with another round of IVF especially since we were told that our only option was donor. With little hope we decided to see Dr Abdallah. He was very optimistic. His staff was very caring and helpful. They helped us financially, and we didn't feel like just another number. We did robotic surgery to treat stage four endometriosis, one round of IVF, and CGH. we are due June 23 with a baby girl. Thank you Dr Abdallah, Lynette, Susan, and staff. Without all of you this would not have been possible. We would highly recommend Dr Abdallah.  Respond

13/12/12 5 5 5 5 the first time my wife and I meet Dr. Abdallah. We were afraid that we did not have a solution to our fertility problem. We had lost 1 baby in 2010 and have not been able to get pregnant after that. We have been trying for about 5 year to conceive but no lock. On that day when we meet him we felt the love and passion that he and his staff have for what they do. Dr. Abdallah tested my wife and I to find all the problems that we might have and he got it right. We did 1 cycle of IVF and got pregnant with Twins. We are still in our first Trimester and everything is going well. Thank you Dr. Abdallah, Stephanie, kourtneey and Susan. You Guys are absolutely the best out there. I will recommend everyone whom is looking for help to come here first. I can’t express it more. Thank you and God Bless you and your staff for everything you have done for us. Raquel & Carlos Acosta

12/10/12 2 1 1 1 I wrote the rating for this guy and his facility a few months back but obviously he took it out because he doesn't want other people to read it, also he tool all other reatings that weren't good about him, his staff and facility. Anyway, I am writing again because I feel people should know that this guy is NOT a doctor he is a business man and he is strictly after your hard working money and will disappoint you of your expectations. So don't waste your time and money to go see this guy, I got to talk to other people that went to him and they felt the same way. Bottom line is this guy will sucker you into signing a contract with lots of hidden fees and with disappointment results. Good luck.  See Responses

24/07/12 5 5 5 5 My wife and I were a young couple when we started trying to have a baby. We tried for a couple of years but it was not happening for whatever reason. We started to see specialists and they all said the same thing. We were young and healthy and they expected their treatement to work. Well after insemination, fertility drugs and every old wives tale in the book, it still did not happen. We finally arrived at the decision of IVF. The first IVF treatment did not work and we were at an all time low. That is when we entered treatment with Dr. Maher Abdallah. Immediately he reassured us with his confidence and expertise. After years and years of frustration my wife is now 4 months pregnant! Even after 4 months it has not totally sunk in yet. I am forever in debted to Dr. Abdallah and his wonderful staff. Everyone has a different situation when it comes to this so nothing is ever promised but if you go see Dr. Abdallah you will know that you are seeing one of the best there is at what he does!  Respond

23/02/12 5 5 5 5 We can't sing the praises of Rancho Mirage Fertility Center and Dr. Maher Abdallah enough! We tried the natural route to get pregnant for 7 years, to no avail. Dr. Abdallah worked patiently and in a caring manner with us on our different options. The clinic's staff are the nicest, friendliest and most helpful young women too. When we hit some snags with our insurance, they patiently fought those battles for us. When Dr. Abdallah determined I needed a laproscopic surgery for severe endometriosis, he performed it himself with a colleague at Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Springs, and it went as smoothly as could be. When we then went with IVF to achieve pregnancy, we read on the Internet how the odds are still kind of against success. But Dr. Abdallah was very optimistic, and made us feel that way too. And now we're pregnant -- it worked first try! Everything's going great & our first baby is due Sept. 10, 2012. We highly recommend Dr. Abdallah and Rancho Mirage Fertility Center!
