IVF Athens Center?
« on: 3/07/18, 11:51 »
Hi,

I am looking to have IVF abroad and I am thinking of Athens, Greece as I have relatives there.

I've been diagnosed with endometriosis and IVF has been recommended.

Μy Gyn has mentioned a fertility specialist, Dr Vassilis Athanassiou.

His clinic is called IVF Athens Center.

Has anyone had any experience with IAC?

Any feedback would be really appreciated.

Thank you!

    Hi PetCat, Iíd been trying to conceive for 1 Ĺ year and had gone through 2 IUIs before trying IVF Athens Center. Now, I am a mother of a 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. I valued the straightforward yet human approach of the whole staff: plain words, clear costs Ė affordable though not among the cheapest choices but eventually, you get what you pay for -step by step guidance from the very first moment of our contact. You probably know that searching for the right clinic is not the easiest task in the world. The fact that most of the clinics promise the same makes this task more difficult. My advice is that itís worth having a talk with the Centerís chief Gynecologist Dr Athanassiou. Good luck!

    Hi again and thanks for the answer, I arrived in Athens last week and I am going to meet Dr Athanassiou in late August. I'll come back with my first impressions.

    Hi Effie_L, Iím still in Athens. I am joining again to post my experience with IVF Athens Centre. I went to Dr Athanassiou with a binder full of tests and papers. After having checked them, one by one, the doctor sent me for an ultrasound exam and some blood tests, which I had them on site. I was told that I can have a child and that my issue is not quite serious. I donít know why, but I put faith in his words. A couple of days after, I went again to get the results. He spelt out exactly what my situation is and prescribed me fertility meds to regulate ovulation. He was patient enough to answer all of my questions, in a way that really helped me to relax. I agreed to return to Athens in November to have a 20-day IVF treatment at the Centre. My gut feeling tells me that Iíve chosen wellÖ.
