What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Tazuke
“Dr. Tazuke is an extraordinary doctor! She is empathetic, hardworking, thorough, and most importantly extremely skilled at her job. After finding out my husband had severe male factor infertility (0% morphology and 0% motility), she quickly pointed us to an experienced urologist to provide testing we needed to continue with treatment. Her staff are also so friendly and helpful, they really made this process seem like they were treating patients instead of numbers. With a world class lab and embryologist, we ended up with six high-graded PGS embryos, one of which im currently 23 weeks pregnant with. Please don’t waste time and money elsewhere, do yourself a favor and check out this state of the art facility and amazing doctor!”
“I can’t recommend Dr.Tasuki enough. We got pregnant at 43 with one cycle at CCRM. If you want a place that maximizes your chances by checking every little thing and is super conservative with your self care (vitamin cocktails, acupuncture, constant blood tests, lining biopsy, transfer protocol, etc) , I would highly recommend CCRM. Their protocols are just different and make a difference.”
