I know there are some really nice clinics in Vancouver attached to the Olive Clinic but are there any that anyone could recommend outside of downtown. It would be rather un-relaxing to have to spend an hour fighting through traffic after my lovely acupuncture session. 

 

Specifically, I am looking in the Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody area. I know there are many clinics I'm just wondering if there are any specific clinics anyone really thought had a good vibe and understood the concerns that go along with IVF.

 

Thanks

I went to Clara Cohen - she basically rushed through the appointment, reduced my time, didn't seem to show a great deal of care and spent less than 10 minutes with me before she pushed the needles in.

 

Terrible experience.
