IVF in Athens, Greece?

PetKat - July 3

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.

?y 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 PetKat, I’d recommend doing your research in various clinics and having more than one consultation before concluding… Among other I’d advise you to visit IVF Athens Center and meet its chief OB/Gyn Mr Athanassiou. I had been trying to conceive for 1 ½ year. We had gone through 2 IUIs at a certain IVF clinic in Athens before we decided to take one last shot at IVF Athens Center. A couple of years later I am a mother of two adorable children, a 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. I valued the straightforward yet human approach of Mr Athanassiou and his team: plain words, personal attention by all staff, clear costs - is not the cheapest choice 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, more or less, make the same promises makes this task more difficult. My advice is to personally meet the chief members of the staff and let your instinct guide you!

Thank you Effie_L, I arrived in Athens a couple of days ago and I will arrange to meet Dr Athanassiou sometime after August 20th.

Hi, I am joining to post my experience with IVF Athens Center. I went to Dr Athanassiou with a binder full of tests and papers. He suggested having 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. When I returned to get the results the doctor 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 Center. I'll keep you posted!
