Just wanted to see if anyone has used Sydney IVF / Genea and your thoughts. They're considerably more expensive than other clinics claiming it is because of their advanced technology. We were thinking of changing to them and were after some feedback. Good or bad experiences and opinions welcomed Thanks

Anyone used Sydney IVF /Genea
13-11-2013 12:05 #2
We loved Genea, although haven't been through any other clinic to compare. They were always professional & I love that they are open for embryo transfers any day, so when it suits your body. I had my last transfer that resulted in our son on the June long weekend. Our FS is lovely, we just went to see him yesterday & he greeted us both with a warm hug & congratulations. He picked up our boy & held him through the entire consult. Obviously we feel positive because we have our son from them. But on thinking it through, we were always treated with warmth & dignity from the lowest employee up the the super smart geneticist we saw. We had one negative experience with the nurse taking bloods from me at chatswood, she tried 14 times (apparently they should give up after 3) & then sent me to Doulas Hanly Moir for the blood test, but they lost the results. So I had to go into the city the next day for another blood test. But that was it in terms of problems & the head nurse was incredibly apologetic. They are expensive though, & we're just trying to work out if we can afford another baby or if we will have to be content with our one. Good luck.

One very happy Genea customer here . I switched to them after 3 unsuccessful cycles with another clinic. Genea were far superior in every way and I'm now 14 wks pregnant after my 4th attempt with them (1 fresh ET, 1 FET & 2 staggered ICSI/PGD/FETs). I was a pretty tough case and my FS kept on trying different protocols/strategies with each cycle as well as running more tests to figure out why it wasn't working. I ended up needing some additional help from an immunology specialist, but that wasn't Genea's fault and my FS supported the extra treatments I was given (which is rare!).
I don't have any negative feedback about my experience with Genea. Cycle monitoring was very thorough, BT results and next instructions were given promptly, procedures were done at their scheduled times, facilities were great, updates on embryo development were timely, etc. I never had to chase them up about anything. I also loved that they worked with my cycle and did EPUs and ETs on weekends if required.
Genea is more expensive, but I believe they are worth it and it was more cost-effective in the long run for us. At our old clinic we could've been up to cycle #10 and still no BFP because they weren't interesting in trying new things and wouldn't test me for things I requested.

We were with 2 other clinics before moving to Genea and wish we'd gone there earlier.
Agree with SimpsonDesert our experience at Genea was superior in every way to the previous clinics we attended from the waiting room experience, contact with FS during the cycle and detailed information provided by the embryologist at transfer without having to ask for it!
We were successful on our 1st transfer with Genea, although had 2 cancelled cycles while we were working with our FS (Devora Leiberman) to get the most optimal environment for our embryo. I liked that Devora phoned us personally during each cycle to discuss our treatment options and she was amenable to working with the other specialist involved (& not connected to Genea) as we were also a very complex case.
In my opinion they were definitely worth the extra $$

We went through Genea after my doctor recommended them. We fell pregnant first go and had a baby girl almost 4 weeks ago now. I can't fault anything about my experience with them.
