We work with many international patients. All over the globe, we have patients coming from anywhere from Europe to Asia to Australia, New Zealand, Africa, Middle East, I can name many countries. And the question is, "Why so many patients are coming to our center internationally?" One of the main reasons is for - - of surrogacy. It's illegal in many European countries and are very hard to find. In our center, they specialize in egg donation and surrogacy. But also, we have patients come to us where they failed IVF elsewhere, and they want to benefit from our technology and our success rate. And we have cases of patients that fail multiple IVF in European countries or other countries and come here and succeed under the first one. A lot of international patients do not speak English or don't feel comfortable enough with their English. In our center, we speak many languages. Hebrew, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Chinese. And if we don't speak that language, we make sure there is a translator. We have a Japanese translator on-site at times that making sure the international patient is well understood and can express himself. The other uniqueness about international patients, they're not familiar with our system, and they're not here physically. And our role is to really be their ears and their eyes and to develop a big level of trust so they know we'll take care of whatever is happening here, and we do it by constant communication with them. We truly enjoy working with international patients; we have a lot of experience.
