The staff gave me hope when I had none. The doctor is a medical genius. The man always had an answer for all of my questions. And yeah, I ask a sh*tload of questions. He never rushed me. He is ridiculously amazing at what he does. I mean off the hook, hands down, knows his stuff like no other. I did IVF with him. I completely trust this man.

It has taken me way too long to write this review, but now that I'm on maternity leave I finally have a chance to do this. I am three weeks away from my due date anxiously awaiting for the arrival of my daughter thanks to the staff here. From the initial consult to my final sendoff, this office has been amazing. I was referred to them by my own mother who had had daughter's of their friends get pregnant through this facility. Thanks so much

Waiting time in exam rooms are about average but usually been short. Everyone here is very welcoming and helpful. Always answering your questions and making sure that you know step by step what will happen during your appointments

I have had the most outstanding experience with this facility, far above any other medical, or health related visits with other medical professionals in my entire life! On a typical visit, the receptionist greets me by my name as I walk-in. I usually don't wait more that 5 minutes to be seen maybe 10 on a busy day. The waiting room is comfortable and spacious

Great location, great staff, great technology...who could ask for more? Dr. Kettel and Dr. Hummel are incredible doctors! They have world class embryologist on staff, high quality nurses and even the nicest receptionist ever!

If you're doing fertility treatments in the future, I would recommend going to SDFC. The doctors give you individual attention.

The Phlebotomist whose name I can't recall at the moment is really animated and very personable. She's hilarious and cracks me up every time I need a blood draw. Waiting time is average but usually short.

Annette is by far the most positive nurse I have ever had, and even when breaking bad news she was able to make me smile. She also returns phone calls promptly and answered all of my tedious questions. My overall experience with San Diego Fertility Center has been great.

I consulted the doctor and nurses at the San Diego Fertility Center back in 2006 after experiences. I originally reached out to my then OBGYN who was absolutely no help and had little sympathy for my sad experience. The docs and nurses made me feel special and helped me through a difficult time. I was treated with respect and great care and now I have two beautiful daughters. I would recommend this group to anyone.

The staff here is very nice and accommodating. We've rarely had to wait for long when we've had an appointment. I also like the fact that their facility is very nice and state of the art. Most of the reviews I've read are complimentary and confirm what we have experienced.

My husband and I researched the best fertility center in the US after an unsuccessful attempt with IVF in another city. We drove a long distance to see Dr. Kettel and his staff. Everyone was so warm and encouraging. We corresponded from our home and traveled to San Diego for a two week stay. The entire process was perfection and we are now the proud parents of a beautiful son and daughter. They made our dreams come true, we could not say enough nice things about these people. Thank you!

San Diego Fertility Center made our dream come true. Dr. Hummel and his staff made this experience easy and painless physically, mentally and financially. Our nurse not only gave us her email but a direct phone number to contact her with any questions that we had. I took full advantage of that! Every call and email was replied to either by the nurse or Dr. Hummel himself. great people at SDFC.

Our experience has been negative overall. Our first egg donor (the only one we really liked due to SDFC's small database) tested positive for drugs so we couldn't use her. After the delay, we found another suitable donor and everything was moving forward. We proceeded with an embryo transfer and were told 80% success rate. 2 weeks after the transfer, we were told we were pregnant, but miscarried 2 days later. We were told this was considered a success because technically a pregnancy occurred. We thought this was misleading and explains the high quoted success rates. After the miscarriage, we tried to get a phone call or appointment from the doctor and were told we had to make an appointment, the next available was 4 weeks away. We couldn't even get a phone call from the doctor after the miscarriage. My wife and I are very upset with our experience at SDFC and Dr. Kettel. We took our remaining embryos elsewhere.

After doing some research I learned that Dr. Kettel was issued a public letter of reprimand for unprofessional conduct and false representation by the Medical Board of California in July of 2009. The letter is posted under public documents. Its very interesting. If I had known this information before I wouldn't have come to SDFC. Go to mbc.ca.gov and lookup under his license to confirm this.

San Diego Fertility Center is the best IVF center! Dr. Kettel and Dr. Hummel are both great doctors. They really personalized my care. Their nurses and staff are so knowledgeable and always answered all of my questions. Plus, the lab and embryologists are so great - they took such good care of my embryos!
