What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Schoolcraft
“Let’s just say, thank goodness for second opinions as Dr. Schoolcraft disagreed with what we were previous told. He explained how his facility was different. He was genuine and upfront. After meeting with him, we felt as though we were finally in the right place with the right people. We pulled the trigger and proceeded with our last attempt at building a family. CCRM should have been our first facility. Everything was different and because of that second opinion, we received our first positive pregnancy test after 6 1/2 years of trying to conceive and are getting ready to start our second trimester. Best of all, we have another embryo to proceed forward with when the time is right. We will always be thankful and grateful for Dr. Schoolcraft, his top-notch lab, and all of his staff.”
“Dr. Schoolcraft is hands down the best fertility specialist in the country – possibly the world. He is super intelligent, research based, and his bedside manner is very caring and empathetic. I saw countless doctors over 6 years of infertility. None came close to him in any way. He has mad skills. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who wants to see their family grow. He even followed my care across the country through my first trimester. I only wish that I had found him sooner.”
