I wouldn't recommend REACH to anyone. I, too, saw Dr. Whelan about four years ago when he made my DH and I feel like complete utter crap. We seriously thought that our chance of having a baby of our own was impossible. We greived and went thru so much, thanks to him. We finally gained the courage to get a second opinion earlier this year and chose to go with Dr. Jutras in Huntersville. OMG what a difference!!! Anyways, we got pregnant on our first IVF try. We couldn't be happier with the service that we recieved from ARC. Don't listen to everything you hear online. Dr. Jutras is the best at what he does and really gives 200%.
Good luck to you, whatever you decide to do!
