    Hi, I have done consultation in IVF Australia and Genea.
    I ony charged around $200 for my first dr appoinment but Genea charges me around $400. Another $599 for Genetistic to discuss about my PDG case.
    And Genea charge me $70 for amh blood test.
    Looks like Genea charges more.

    Does anyone has the same experience.

    I have been to Fertility First, IVFA and Genea and Genea was hands down the best in terms of clinic waiting times and customer service and they use guided ultrasounds for ALL transfers as standard practice. My FS at Genea was really collaborative with the other specialists involved in my care (unlike my experience with other clinics) and she's easy to contact during cycles if I have any questions. Also my only live birth occurred from a transfer through Genea.

    Hello Tania and ceecee1 .
    I am in this journey for few years now. Started in Westmead x 4 cycles, though private will deliver better results but it much worst. It just a money making clinics, they see you as $$$ and take an advantage of disadvantaged couples.

    Unfortunately, i had the same experiences with both IVF Australia and Genea.
    Genea : had 2 x cycles with lack of competences of nurses and Doctors. Dr just guessing with what to prescribe. "Try this/ try that"- based on no proper investigation. York st or Norwest everyone is acting like you own them something, from receptionist to nurses, helpless. Nurses are incompetent to take blood test not funny at all. Nurses in surgery theater much better caring for recovery. I was lucky wuth no pain after egg collection, Dr very gentle, only 4 retrieved , 1 fertilized but didn't stay after transfer.
    IVF Australia Bondi/Maroubra : Everyone is friendly before the deal is sealed. They love to promise just to sell the cycle. Afterwards, no one cares, nurses are lazy, can't be bothered at all, the nurses approach is "no questions should be asked" they just dictate and give orders . I was confused tried to get more info but it's pointless. My Dr was rough , on the day of egg retrieval had the most inappropriate body language , i was so uncomfortable just wanted to leave the maroubra clinic.
    To sum up, nether private hospitals are doing better job than Westmead, they have the same technology, DR average or lower standard and nurses helpless. It's all about the brand and marketing, Genea / IVF Australia have shareholder and make business as any other industry , even it's no ethical to take advantage in medial industry .
    Good luck all.
