2 cycles of IVF
“Even though we live in Switzerland it was worth travelling to The Lister Fertility Clinic”
“Having a reputation as one of the largest IVF clinics in Europe was certainly a deciding factor in choosing The Lister Fertility Clinic for my IVF treatment. I also found the short notice appointments extremely appealing as I had not come across this service at other clinics I visited. I also wanted a clinic that was discrete, efficient and with a convenient central London location. The Lister Fertility Clinic felt like the right choice for us; although we live in Switzerland we felt it was worth the travel to London.
I was very happy with the excellent care that I received at The Lister Fertility Clinic. I felt emotionally supported and the IVF nurses were always attentive and considerate in helping me through my first cycle of IVF.
Although sadly this didn’t work out, I felt reassured that Mr Nicopoullos did everything possible to assess why the treatment hadn’t worked and make the necessary changes.
I felt very much at ease when discussing the treatment with Dr Nicopoullos. He was pragmatic and didn’t make promises like other consultants that I had previously met, nor did I feel pressured to follow a particular plan of treatment. Dr Nicopoullos laid out all the options possible for me to make a balanced decision. Previously, other fertility consultants I had met had been overly keen to get me to follow a particular treatment (the most expensive one) without explaining the other options. Following one consultation at another clinic, I had been referred to see an expensive nutritionist and lifestyle advisor before starting treatment.
I didn’t feel comfortable with this approach and the costs of all the extras. The Lister’s approach was completely different for me and suited me well. At The Lister Fertility Clinic it made such a difference to feel like I was being treated in a professional environment with modern technology that was focused on patient care and not on the commercial aspect of the fertility business. Everything was clean, efficient and professional, and the fact that there was a pharmacy on-site helped make visits to the clinic as efficient for me as possible.
Thankfully, my second cycle of IVF was successful; and I am now mother to a beautiful baby daughter. I would be happy to recommend The Lister Fertility Clinic to anyone.”
