Muy buen doctor

Con mi pareja Amanda hemos recurrido al doctor Akerman para tener un hijo por medio de los tratamientos que ofrece en su centro. Mi niño nació por FIV, agradezco al doctor por su calidez y por acompañarnos con honestidad y profesionalismo en todo el proceso hasta la llegada de nuestro bebé.

Five Stars

He recurrido al doctor Fernando Akerman para lograr mi sueño de convertirme en madre ya que no tengo pareja y todo ha resultado como lo esperaba. Mi niño nació sano y en perfectas condiciones gracias a un tratamiento de inseminación intrauterina. Estoy muy agradecida al doctor y a todo su equipo por acompañarme y ayudarme en todo el proceso para poder tener a mi hijo.
