Donor Egg Programs: The Center for Reproductive Medicine vs. Donor Agencies

Relative to most donor egg agencies which are relatively new, non-physician owned and operated “Internet companies,” the Center for Reproductive Medicine (CRM) in Orlando has served patients in the southeastern U.S and many countries for more than 29 years and is one of the leading infertility practices in the country. With six Board-certified Reproductive Endocrinologists, scores of nursing, laboratory and administrative staff, as well as a dedicated donor egg team, our three offices are strategically located to best serve patients throughout the region.
Further, CRM is one of just four partners in My Egg Bank- North America, the world’s largest and most successful egg bank. Whether patients have advanced reproductive age, decreased ovarian reserve, premature ovarian failure or genetic abnormalities, we are able to give them a high chance for success using highly qualified and rigorously-screened young healthy donors.
