Consumer Complaints and Reviews

Satisfaction Rating

The experience as far as payment processing has been a nightmare. StemCyte does not process their own payments, they outsource to a company called Universal Accounting Services LLC. This company is basically a collections company. If you pay your bill through your online banking system you will encounter a nightmare experience. Once your bank cuts the check (Because they don't accept electronic transfers) it takes them "10-15 days to process". So basically you receive a collections call from some miserable human every single month until you're paid in full. I will be going with another stem cell company for my next child.
