What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Batcheller
“After 5 horrible years of infertility and 2 other infertility centers we found Dr April with CCRM. We are so thankful that even though I was labeled a mystery patient by others.. she figured out what was wrong immediately. I am now 32 weeks pregnant with our little miracle. Without April I truly feel we would never be parents.”
“I can’t say enough good things about CCRM. From day one, Dr. Batcheller made us feel confident that we could get pregnant and that she is extremely knowledgeable in the field. All of the staff including the front desk girls, our nurse, and the ultrasound staff learned our names and really strived to connect with us. They made us feel like they were invested in our journey too. We had gone to another fertility clinic prior to this and were quoted less than half the success rate that CCRM has and were treated like a number. The two clinics were night and day different. I would recommend going to CCRM hands down for any type of fertility treatment. They truly know what they’re doing!”
“She made us at ease with our choice to do I.v.f. After 2 cycles we have a beautiful, healthy baby girl! I highly recommend going to ccrm and seeing her.she was very kind, answered all my questions ,and she is obviously wicked smart and excels at what she does!”
