My regular insurance is through another major company, and we had to pay out of pocket for our treatment. My wife and I cannot be happier that we chose Loma Linda University Center for Fertility.
Dr. Bareh along with her nurses, Angie and Rachel, are amazing. Dr. Bareh is very patient and took all the time necessary to answer any and all of our questions every single visit. She has a very patient and calm energy that comes through every interaction that we had with her. No matter how many people were in the waiting room we always felt that we were her only concern during our appointments. Dr. Bareh and her nurses patiently walked us through every single step in our fertility journey. We never felt like we were lost. We never felt like we were being ignored. We always felt like we were an absolute priority for them no matter how small the request or question. My wife and I cannot thank Dr. Bareh enough. She was literally having contractions for her own third child DURING my wife’s egg retrieval procedure (she gave birth the next day!). We are expecting our first child and look forward to working with Dr. Bareh and her staff for our second (or more) children as well.

I wasn’t sure if my body would even allow me to be pregnant because of all of my health issues, but they spent so much time with me. They prepared me and watched me closely to see if any changes needed to be made. The doctors, nurses and receptionists are all very nice. I am now carrying a baby and am very thankful for their services.

Working with Dr. Jacobson was a great experience! He was very kind and warm to us even in our darkest time. I have never met a doctor like him. I would recommend him to anyone who is having fertility issues. The rest of the staff was also amazing, and I don’t have any complaints. We were treated so well, and I am thankful to this staff for all they tried to do for us.

At Loma Linda University Center for Fertility, you know that not only is your family rooting for you but also the doctors and the staff are cheering for you and making you feel like family. I want to thank Dr. Jacobson for helping us on our journey to parenthood.
Dr. Jacobson’s bedside manner was amazing, and he was very sympathetic to our questions and concerns. He didn’t candy-coat things for us, but he didn’t say it harshly either. He was very honest in his thoughts and opinions, which we appreciated. You can Google all you want but you won’t get the answers that you need. We came to him for answers and he gave them to us. Anytime I had questions, even after hours, someone was always there to answer my questions. Nine out of 10 times it was Dr. Jacobson himself, even if he was not on call. He made sure my concerns were dealt with – you just don’t find doctors like that anymore.
We may not have had a child with our DNA, but we were able to become parents thanks to Dr. Jacobson. He first helped us medically and then emotionally when he shared his journey of adopting a child internationally. On February 2, 2015, we were able to hold our daughter for the first time. We were finally parents. She is the joy of our life and the most amazing human being on the planet. She was meant to be from the beginning, but IVF was the road we needed to take in order to get her.
We are so thankful for the Center for Fertility for being there for us and helping us and guiding us. Even though it wasn’t the outcome we expected from IVF, it was the outcome we needed to hold Mya Grace. We are now in the process of adopting our second daughter from China, and then our family will be complete.

We are pregnant with twins thanks to Dr. Bareh! My husband and I tried for years before coming to Loma Linda for IVF. This process is emotionally draining, but Dr. Bareh and the team of nurses made this process comfortable and encouraging. Each member of the team showed concern for us throughout the process, made sure we were comfortable with our injections and spent the time to get to know us. The embryologist treated our embryos like they were hers. She gave us a call each day and on the transfer day was so excited to show us their growth. It was wonderful to see how much she cared for our embryo development. We felt like part of the family when we left.
The Loma Linda staff celebrated with us when we received our positive pregnancy test and when we discovered twins on our first ultrasound. It is really important to have a supportive team during this journey, and you will find that here. Dr. Bareh was always up front and honest with us to ensure that our outcome was ideal. She knows what she is doing, so if you want to get pregnant see this wonderful woman.

Thanks to the caring team at LLU Fertility I am watching my sweet, beautiful baby girl take a nap. She is 5 months old and an absolute JOY AND BLESSING! Dr. Bareh is so knowledgable, talented, and caring. I can’t say enough good things about her and this clinic. We struggled with fertility and genetic issues (short story), but through God and the talents of this caring medical team, we are now a family.
Please don’t wait any longer to contact Dr. Bareh! Make your dreams come true.

Me and my husband are very glad we chose to come here for treatment. We saw Dr. Bareh & she has been a blessing to our lives. She helped us out with all of our treatment that was needed. She is an amazing Dr. … after trying for 5 years to get pregnant, with her help we are now blessed with twins! :)
We couldn’t be any happier for this amazing new journey in our lives. I really recommend this clinic. Staff is really friendly & caring!

I have had a very good experience here. Deanna at the front desk always checks me in with a smile, answers my calls and gets me the appointments I need. My work up with Dr. Bareh was scheduled quickly as were all my follow ups. I never waited long in the office and she always answered all my questions … as crazy or repetitive as they may have been.
Being a fertility patient is hard, so having questions and getting answers is important. She has a kind nature. She even requested I bring our baby in once it’s born because it’s rewarding to see the result of our time with her. I am not an IVF patient. I suffered recurrent losses so we needed her for diagnosis, advice and monitoring of our next try, which has been successful so far! I’m thankful for a Dr. and an office that wants to stay on top of the situation, get you in quickly when possible and spend adequate time with you.

Dr. Bareh has been kind, caring and upfront with this whole process. Her staff is just as caring and supportive and available to answer any questions. They’ve made me feel comfortable during all procedures and exams.

The staff and doctors at LLU Fertility Center are amazing. My wife and I were cash patients through Kaiser. We had the pleasure of working with Dr. Bareh, Dr. Wei, Dr. Corselli (embryologist) and Evelyn (clinical embryologist). We’re always treated with compassion, timeliness and thoroughness.
The overall staff is terrific, but my wife developed a special bond with nurse Angie. Her follow up and directions (how to do the shots, lots of shots) were always top notch. We highly recommend anyone who is in need of fertility treatments to use LLU Fertility Center. Although not always the case, we were successful first time with a twins pregnancy! Great job, Evelyn, on choosing our embryos!!!

I would give Dr. Bareh and her team six stars if I could!
Infertility was one of the greatest struggles I’ve ever faced, and I can very confidently say that if I ever had to do it all over again, Dr. Bareh would be my first call! She is professional, knowledgeable, kind and clearly passionate about her work. I am VERY proud to say that my beautiful twin girls were created at the hands of the Loma Linda Fertility staff. Should you find yourself struggling to conceive, LLU is the only option in my opinion.
In addition to the kindness and positivity the LLU team brought to my situation, they also offer very reasonable prices for their fertility services. And anyone can tell you, this stuff gets expensive!
-Audrey Z. | Originally posted 5/13/2017 on Yelp
The Loma Linda University Center for Fertility & IVF is wonderful. Although they have great statistics, they truly care more about listening to their patients and choosing the right treatment for them than their numbers.
I saw Dr. Bareh on every visit except for simple blood draws. She is kind and compassionate, but forthright. I’m definitely going back if I choose to have another child.
-Karla M. | Originally posted 5/12/2017 on Yelp
I am so thankful we found Doctor Bareh‘s office. My husband and I have been trying to have more children for the past seven years. We had gone to three other fertility doctors without success. Doctor Bareh listened to our story and gave us the best option for us. She was very professional, caring and easy to communicate with. She was there through every step of the process and listened to every concern we had. We enjoyed the whole process.
The nurses were very friendly and ladies at the front desk were very kind and professional, especially Dianna, she helped us through our insurance side of the process. I got an answer every time I called and needed to talk to a nurse about any concerns or upcoming appointments.
I highly recommend Dr. Bareh and her staff. We are now 6 weeks pregnant with our second child. We have been praying for so many years and we are thanking the Lord for this blessing.

Dr. Bareh is awesome, she is very personable and realistic. My wife and I are glad we made the decision to come here. Her staff is top notch and if we had any questions they completely explained them. When we are unable to talk to someone at the moment, they call back in a reasonable time frame. Our experience here has been great and we will recommend Dr. Bareh to friends and family in the future.
-Oscar T. | Originally posted 4/26/2017 on Yelp
Dr. Bareh is open to examining failed cycles and trying new options. She seems to love her job and is very interested in helping couples successfully navigate their options to become a parent.
-Jason S. | Originally posted 1/20/2017 on Yelp
We were heartbroken when we found out that we could not have children naturally. But Dr. Bareh coached us through every step, and had unconditional support. She would call after hours just to check up and give us words of encouragement. After two unsuccessful ivf transfers, and a cancelled cycle, we are now expecting our baby! A little boy!

My wife couldn’t get pregnant; we went to a hospital and they told us that she couldn’t have a baby so we went to Loma Linda fertility with Dr. Bareh. We told her our situation. She is one of the most understanding doctors and so nice she made my wife have hopes. We went ahead and did all the procedure, now my wife is pregnant thanks to God and Dr. Bareh. I do recommend this hospital. Do not lose hope. Thank u DR.
-Sergio A. | Originally posted 12/14/2016 on Yelp
I loved my experience with Loma Linda Fertility. I am so thankful to all of the staff. Dr. Bareh listened to me and was very knowledgeable and calming. She took a very scary and stressful situation and helped me through it. The nurses I spoke with were kind and I feel they did an amazing job.

To undergo infertility is unknown and intimidating, no matter how much you read or thought you prepared yourself. Thankfully, we’ve had success and are expecting thanks so much to the help of the LLU fertility center. The physician and staff at LLU fertility center did an excellent job in helping us through the process. They were always quick to respond to phone calls and questions. The physician would call herself to answer any questions and even to check up on me after a procedure. The front desk staff is patient and helpful when helping one navigate through insurance issues and payments. I definitely recommend their care.
-Stephanie K. | Originally posted 8/20/2016 on Yelp
My husband and I started our IVF journey at LLU because of the reputation it has always held for being an exemplary facility. Infertility is a very scary and daunting endeavor and now that our struggles to conceive have ended, I can honestly say that choosing LLU was the best decision we could have made.
Not only is the staff professional and knowledgable, but we have always felt that they were really rooting for us. And any infertile couple can tell you, that means the world. Many people go through this struggle feeling alone, but thanks to the doctors and nurses who helped us along our journey, all we felt was kindness and love.
Dr. Bareh is one of the sweetest people we’ve ever met. She really takes time out of her busy schedule to help and actually make the phone calls herself, be it good news or bad.
I don’t ever want to deal with infertility again, but if I had to travel down this road one more time I would not hesitate to call Dr. Bareh and the LLU staff. My husband and I can’t thank them enough for all they’ve given us!
-Audrey Z. | Originally posted 6/30/2016 on Yelp
From start to finish, EVERYONE in the clinic was compassionate, courteous and knowledgeable. They went above and beyond to make sure that I understood everything going on with the process, and that I felt like part of a family. Drs. Jacobson, Bareh and Corselli all do exemplary work. My treatment was successful, and I will be forever grateful to them.
-Cherie C. | Originally posted 6/17/2016 on Yelp
My Husband and I have been dealing with infertility for 5 years. We have had 2 failed pregnancies and 8 failed IUI attempts at Kaiser before we were recommended to LLUMC for IVF treatment. Our first impression was excellent. The front office staff was very helpful. All the nurses and doctors were always attentive to my husband’s and my needs and questions. We went through with the 1st cycle and retrieved 15 eggs. 13 eggs were fertilized and 7 made it to transfer day. We transferred 2 embryos and 5 are frozen. I am currently pregnant with TWINS. The overall experience was wonderful.
-Crystal P. | Originally posted 5/14/2016 on Yelp
Dr. Bareh is attentive, caring and calm. The nursing staff responds promptly to messages that are left for them, and seem to be in constant and detailed contact with the doctors. The front desk could use an additional staff member, since there always seem to be either lots of patients or lots of phone calls. But otherwise I have had nothing but good, comprehensive, thoughtful care from this office.
-Kelly N. | Originally posted 2/2/2016 on Yelp
Dr. Bareh walked me through what is already a very intense process. I appreciated her bedside manner and her honesty throughout the process. It was a bittersweet day when we “graduated” to our OB after the success of conceiving our son. If we need to go through this process again I would not hesitate to return to this clinic.
-Erin S. | Originally posted 11/15/2016 on Yelp
My husband and I tried to get pregnant for 4 years on our own and another year with fertility meds. When that didn’t work we went to Loma Linda Fertility Center to try IVF. The first attempt didn’t work- through no fault of the clinic; we had some other medical issues. After our second attempt I am thrilled to say we are currently 24 weeks pregnant with a baby girl! We worked with Dr. Bareh the entire time and she was wonderful. I can’t say enough about her or the amazing nurses we worked with. No matter where we were in our cycle or how nervous and full of questions we were, my husband and I were always made to feel important and cared about. There were a few times when I needed Dr. Bareh or one of the nurses after hours and they were always there without question. IVF is incredibly emotional for both mom and dad-to-be and the fertility center was always sensitive to that; and when we finally got our dream and became pregnant, Dr. Bareh celebrated right along with us. Even now, as I’ve been transferred to my regular OB, Dr. Bareh still calls to check in and see how everything is going. We can’t wait to introduce her to our little miracle.
-Christina B. | Originally posted 10/16/2016 on Yelp
Dr. Bareh and the nurses at Loma Linda University Fertility Center are wonderful! My husband and I were always made to feel special and important. They supported us with our lows and celebrated with our successes. Thanks to Dr. Bareh and her team we are 24 weeks pregnant!

Unlike some of the reviews posted on this site I am an actual patient of the LLU Fertility Center and I truly recommend this fertility clinic! After five years of trying to get pregnant, with Dr. Bareh’s help, we were finally able to conceive and are so blessed and excited! Dr. Bareh helped me to understand my issues and clearly explained our options to us and Dr. Ko was excellent in guiding my husband through his issues and the process as well. If you have not had success in getting pregnant, or tried at another clinic and it did not work, try LLU Fertility, you won’t be disappointed :-)
-Tina G. | Originally posted 9/14/2016 on Yelp
I have seen Dr. Bareh about five times already. She is awesome. Very caring and deals with you as one of her family members. She is very knowledgeable and has excellent clinical judgement. I am so glad that I am seeing her. Only one thing that the front office staff don’t tell you that there is a female provider unless you ask her (Deanna). She should inform patients upon calling to schedule an appointment. I am so glad I did!

Dr. Bareh actually called me back and my husband and I went in for a consultation. Dr. Bareh is very nice and great bedside manner! She also asked us several times if we have any questions and she would answer/explain them clearly and patiently in details. My husband and I will continue seeing Dr. Bareh for fertility treatments. Thank you!

I have a condition where I had to do two retrievals before my first transfer. I saw Dr. Bareh for my second. I highly recommend this IVF clinic because their doctors, embryologists, and nurses are all supportive, caring, and patient-centered. They always treat you as an individual, not just another patient. Each patient is truly special here. My husband and I are happily expecting twins and it’s all because of the special and dedicated work done at this facility.
-Amy S. | Originally posted 9/2/2016 on Yelp
We had such a great experience with Dr. Bareh and all the other staff!! They went above and beyond for us!! I would recommend them to my family and friends!!
-Tanya | Originally posted 8/30/2016 on Patient Satisfaction Survey
I was a patient of Dr. Bareh’s for about 18 months and had many different procedures and cycles before achieving success. Fertility issues are such a sensitive situation to find yourself in and then you factor in the medications required for a cycle and your emotions can get the better of you. But the nurses and doctors are incredibly kind and professional – making an overwhelming process possible. I am blessed to have been referred here and hope that my pregnancy continues to be healthy. We would have never had the chance to become parents without the help of Dr. Bareh, Dr. Corselli and their amazing team.
-Joy W. | Originally posted 8/24/2016 on Yelp
I couldn’t offer enough praise for the wonderful staff at LLU Center for Fertility. Dr. Bareh reached out to me via phone or email anytime I had any questions. Thankfully, my husband and I were able to conceive naturally after four months of testing and medication. Had we not been able to conceive on our own, Dr. Bareh had us prepared to move onto the next step. Our baby boy is due in November, and we couldn’t be happier! Dr. Bareh is highly recommended, as she is knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to work with.
-Kim | Originally posted 8/16/2016 on Patient Satisfaction Survey
I have met with Dr. Bareh a couple times already and she has been so helpful and supportive. There have also been times where I have messaged her and she has always been very quick to respond to my concerns/questions! I have always been happy with the care I’ve received at Loma Linda and this is no exception.
-Summer | Originally posted 8/1/2016 on Yelp
First off, I don’t write reviews; typically don’t have time. But fertility and trying to have a baby is worth logging in and writing my thoughts. Quick history: wife has DOR; had been trying to conceive with IUIs (3) and naturally for five years; primary reproductive endocrinologist is at Kaiser (Dr. Fong – AMAZING Doc); we knew going into treatment that IVF is expensive but didn’t have the money to pay for it.
Then we were referred to LLU Center for Fertility and IVF by our Kaiser doc and it is a decision that we will never regret for the rest of our lives. Dr. Corselli, Dr. Bareh and the team of nurses are top-notch, caring, incredibly knowledgeable, and compassionate. Most important for our situation is that they are all CONFIDENT in their craft and make you feel hopeful and informed the whole way through. Regardless of our outcome (pregnant or not-pregnant), this was the right choice for us.
In the interest of full disclosure, here is what I think of the facility: it’s like walking into a high school. Older building with 1990s tile everywhere. The exam rooms are not state of the art and the procedure room looks outdated. As a man, the room which I gave my samples was not amazing. BUT everywhere you look is clean, neat, and well taken care of. The point is that the doctors and nurses work to get you pregnant and are focused on your care, which is exactly what we experienced at this clinic. Don’t be discouraged by the decor or the age of the building – all that stuff doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Additionally, the embryologists will allow you to quickly examine the laboratory where your frozen embryos or fresh transfers are being staged and the room is amazing. We have no worries about our frozen embryos being in the best of care by Dr. Corselli and her team.
Please do not overlook this clinic for your reproductive needs. We drove six hours each day we had an appointment just to go to this place and attempt to get pregnant. It’s worth the trip every time.

My husband and I found Dr. Bareh through a friend who said nothing but great things about her. Going into a fertility clinic is very scary, I didn’t know what to expect. But the moment I met Dr. Bareh, she put me at ease. She was so professional, had such good bedside manner and she gave us HOPE. She laid out all of our options, and wanted to treat us at our pace and comfort level. I literally got pregnant after just one visit with her and I am happily 23 weeks pregnant currently. She is my ray of sunshine.

I found Dr. Bareh through a common friend who said nothing but great things about her. So I took a leap of faith. Now seeing a fertility doctor is scary, I didn’t know what to expect. Infertility is such a taboo subject, and I almost feel ashamed going. So stepping into the office, I honestly already felt defeated. Like I would never get pregnant, I wasn’t meant to be a mom.
The moment I met Dr. Bareh she was seriously like a ray of sunshine. Such good bedside manners. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable, answered all our questions, laid out all our options, and gave us HOPE. She wanted to work at our pace, and we wanted to be aggressive. So she said she will be as aggressive with treatment as we want. I literally got pregnant after seeing her once. And she followed me the entire first trimester, she held me my hand (not literally) through the process, and she made sure my baby and I were fine. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and Dr. Bareh is my shining light and my miracle. I don’t mean to be dramatic but she really is my guardian angel.

My wife and I came to LLU after months of unsuccessful prior treatments. Dr. Bareh and the staff have been great! From our very first appointment Dr. Bareh greeted us with a warm smile and a wealth of knowledge. All our questions were answered and we were made sure of how to contact with any questions as we went though our treatment. Dr. Bareh took it an extra mile by personally calling after procedures to check up on my wife and see how she was feeling. You cannot ask for better treatment and care as she offers. Our treatment was successful and it was thanks to Dr. Bareh and the amazing staff at LLU.

I am excited to know they are more like family than just the doctors and nurses that helped us conceive.

To start off… I am an employee of LLU and therefore many of my doctors are LLU doctors. I’m rarely disappointed in the care I receive and feel very fortunate to have such wonderful caring medical professionals in my community.
I noticed all of the bad reviews were before Dr. Gihan Bareh came on board to this clinic. She has been the doctor for my husband and I. My OBGYN who I adore, recommended her and I trust my OBGYN’s opinion very much. Needless to say, I have been SO impressed with this clinic. Everything has been streamlined and easy (well, as easy at IVF can be) and we were met with such compassionate care. The front desk is efficient, and all the nurses are so caring and helpful. We have been taken care of every step of the way, 110%! Dr. Bareh has wonderful bedside manner, she truly cares and is thorough. She even personally calls with lab results and to talk about her thoughts on treatment options. My egg retrial was also a good experience, the anesthesiologist Dr. Shannon Mulder was just wonderful, kind, and competent. I felt in SUCH good hands! This clinic is great, and I’m happy to report we have 16 fertilized eggs from just one round of IVF. We are so excited to hopefully be parents soon. Thank you to LLU and this clinic-you are making dreams come true!

I had two miscarriages in one year, my husband and I almost gave up on having babies until we met Dr. Bareh and her staff. I am telling you after meeting Dr. Bareh all of my dreams came true, she was so detailed in her exams and gave us so much hope that we had no doubt we would have our first baby with her. So after our initial visit with her, in less than two months I was pregnant. I called her office and her wonderful staff guided me to the next step. I am 17 weeks today and expecting a baby boy. This is such a wonderful time in our lives. I think about what would I do if I didn’t meet Dr.Bareh. Dr Bareh would always be in our lives, she has a very special place in my heart and also my husband’s heart as well. I would do everything to my power to introduce this wonderful doctor to anyone who is having trouble getting pregnant because once you get your positive pregnancy result you know what I am talking about. This was the best choice that I have ever made and I hope you would make this choice as well good luck and happy baby.

Dr. Gihan Bareh – Great physician. Excellent bedside manners. Very professional. Spent a lot of time with her patients and answered all of my questions. She is very knowledgeable and highly experienced. We had our miracle baby with her great help and support. Highly recommend her for everyone who is going through the difficult journey of infertility!!

I feel so fortunate that I had Dr. Jacobson as my physician. He was so kind to me over the years I struggled to get pregnant. He always explained procedures and made me feel at ease. Thank you Dr. Jacobson! I also want to thank the nurses Monica and Julie for being professional and for answering all of my questions.

We had the best experience with Dr. Gihan Bareh and her staff. Her bedside manner and professionalism combined with her expertise in the field of infertility and confidence has changed our lives dramatically. I am currently seven weeks pregnant and on my way to having a baby. Thank you Dr. Bareh and your wonderful staff for making our dream possible. We will always remember you, and you will always be a part of us. We wish you a wonderful long life.
There is always an angel that will come to you sometime in your life. Dr. Bareh has been our angel that has made our dream a reality. God bless you.

Once our “plan” was in place, the financial person sat us down, went over line by line what our insurance was going to cover, and highlighted what each visit’s co-payment was going to be, as well as other out-of-pocket, plus her estimate on what the pharmacist’s portion would be.
Every visit, we were asked if we had questions, were encouraged to call as often as we needed to, and given instructions on how to administer meds, take care of myself, etc. We even had to put off our cycle by one month, and they gave us no grief whatsoever. We didn’t have high hopes of a successful outcome, because we’ve been infertile for 6 years (with 3 non-embryo miscarriages), and we were able to produce 9 EGGS! 4 of these were viable, so we transferred 2, and now have 2 frozen at the facility!!!
We transferred on March 23rd, and I’m expecting twins later this year. Loma Linda University Center For Fertility helped me be a mom again, and if you’re looking for QUALITY care in your search for fertility treatments, I highly recommend you consider them for a consultation. Thanks!

Dr. Bareh and her nursing staff’s professionalism and compassion are unmatched. My husband and I were guided through the diagnostic and IVF process, and ultimately became pregnant through Dr. Bareh’s skills and our many prayers. We are forever grateful for this experience, and having a new baby to look forward to. The Center For Fertility is unmatched. I highly recommend this clinic and staff to anyone needing fertility services.

Dr. Bareh is not only very qualified, but she really cares about her patients. She took time to listen to my questions and concerns. I could not have asked for a better doctor to help me with my infertility. Thanks again, Dr. Bareh.

My husband and I see Dr. Bareh, who just started here earlier this year. She has lots of qualifications, including an MD and a PhD, but she also has a very good bedside manner and really cares about her patients. She is patient and good at explaining medical issues. Love her!

Went to see Dr. Jacobson for infertility issues. I was his patient for a year and a half. He is wonderful, very kind, and patient. He was realistic and helped my husband and I through very hard ups and downs of 4 failed IUIs. I would strongly recommend the fertility clinic at LLU and any of the doctors there. The nurses were awesome as well.
