Hidden Gem!

“I am so glad I stumbled upon Dr. Lane and her fertility clinic! They’re truly a hidden gem. Dr. Lane is extremely bright (only doctor to have accurately established a proper protocol for our situation), which thankfully resulted in more eggs retrieved and healthy embryos. Dr. Lane is pleasant to chat with, kind and has excellent bed side manner. Her entire team is phenomenal, including her embryologists!! They were the only team that took time to focus on our situation and think outside the box and be open to what our concerns were. Her office is warm and located in the beautiful Marin (Novato) area. Additional perks include: no automated message every time you call, free abundant parking, beautiful quiet remote location. Thank you, Dr. Lane, for not losing your passion in helping your patients have the family they so desire. And a huge thanks to the entire amazing team! Don’t hesitate to visit this clinic….trust me, I’ve been to many others in the Bay Area. Lane Fertility is not to be overlooked.”
