What do patients have to say about you?

“My wife and I had the great pleasure of meeting Dr. Styer a few months ago to help us get pregnant. We are both in the healthcare field and we can easily say that our care at CCRM has been the best we have experienced as patients and as healthcare providers. Dr. Styer has a knowledgeable, compassionate, and thoughtful bedside manner that is truly refreshing. He and his team always made time for us if we had additional questions and always made us feel so comfortable. The clinic and staff were so welcoming and our care has been top notch. The fertility journey has been challenging for us over the past few years. However, Dr. Styer has truly shown us what is means to “care” for patients. He has been so enthusiastic and our confidence in our chances for pregnancy have been bolstered immensely. His care of us has been second to none. He is an incredible fertility doctor and we recommend him and CCRM to anyone who is looking for a clinic where you want truly excellent care.”

“I came to Dr Styer after 2 failed IVF cycles with another clinic. I got pregnant on the first attempt with Dr Styer. Aside from the positive result, Dr Styer restored a lot of lost confidence that had been gone for a long time in the brutal IVF process. At times he felt more like a therapist than a doctor, talking me through every step of the journey and being incredibly sympathetic when I felt hopeless or anxious. I remember getting my last ultrasound with him when I was 6 weeks pregnant, and feeling nervous that I may not ever receive that level of comfort and care from a doctor again! Dr Styer is truly the best for fertility. 5 out of 5.”

I had a fantastic experience at CCRM Boston! Dr. Styer conveyed genuine warmth and care the entire time. He explained things clearly and answered my many questions very patiently. He has a great sense of humor, often laughing with me at my nervous jokes and stories. He called me personally with the news of the positive pregnancy test, and sounded just as excited as I was. The nurses and techs were kind, knowledgeable, helpful, and accessible. I had no problem getting appointments and did not have to wait long. It's a welcoming and friendly environment. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with infertility.
