    Very detailed, thorough, kind, attentive doctor. Took the time to review my background and file after 2 failed IVF's, explain and reassure us, made sure I would do all the required tests after ET and didn't leave any stone unturned. Would highly recommend

    Dr Rittenberg is very informative and nice to speak to about something as sensitive as ivf. She explains well all from the process, the actual events in the body during the treatment and potential outcomes. She cares and comes back to you with answers and suggestions. I would recommend her anytime.
