I want to say I really like this clinic and the staff and this review is more a reflection of the devastating situation than the actual clinic. We traveled from the USA to Greece, bought our tickets 6 months in advance and planned the IVF procedure, it’s much too expensive in the states to the point of being absolutely ridiculous. The doctor and nurses at Embryolab are very professional and prescribe a treatment plan that we follow and everything is going quite well. Then the day before the egg retrieval we get a Covid test and my wife tests positive. They told us in the beginning that if we tested positive the procedure would not be able to occur, so we knew the risk. But we are careful, we wear our masks in cabs, indoors, crowds, etc. it is completely out of our control, we have done our due diligence to be safe. They inform us the law will not allow us to get IVF with a positive Covid test. I realize the clinic is acting in accordance with the law, which is what you want the clinic to do, but the Covid laws change every month and it seems quite arbitrary at this point. So bottom line, we now cannot even try the procedure we’ve waited so long to do and will have to wait a year to come back if we are ever able to come back again. I realize this is not the fault of the clinic. They are an excellent practice. But I am so upset right now I don’t know what to do to remedy the situation.

Update: (1 star to 5 star)
Embryolab was able to perform an IUI instead of an IVF due to the situation. We had tried IUI in the states previously without success, so we had little hope it would work. However, the treatment was a success and resulted in a pregnancy!
I feel I need to update this review to once again reflect the stellar team at Embryolab. I feel they are leaps and bounds ahead of the US doctors. Thank you, Embryolab
