I've been to a few clinics in Toronto. Why is Create so much cheaper ? Hannam is triple the price almost. I can't figure it out. Is there a big difference in the lab quality?

No the costs vary. I was there but now I am at trio that was TCART. It is more than create not sure why.

My theory is Hannam is more expensive due to their lab.

I think the real question is how does Hannah ethically get away with what they are charging for ART.

Hannam is the outlier, not Create. Create is pretty much in line with most Toronto clinics.

I don't think it is the lab at Hannam. I think all the talk about their lab is marketing. He was considerably more expensive before the new lab.

I think Creates costs are more in line with other clinic in Toronto and the outlier is Hannam. With Hannam being way more expensive.  I wonder if Create offers more in house services and therefore are cheaper? That is just a guess.

 

 Also I think because Create really focuses on a volume based services. If you have ever been at Create for morning monitoring you will realize that each doctor is seeing at least 50 patients each morning. The waiting room and over flow room are often full to capacity.

Create's fees are cheaper than trio and Toronto west. I've been to 4 big clinics in Toronto and Create is Much cheaper. Yes they do PGS in house and that saves about $1000. So $4000 instead of $5000 at other clinics. But all the other costs are much lower too at Create. It's much easier to batch here. I've done cycles at trio and Create. I would have liked Hannam but I feel we are just paying for their awesome looking clinic

Create moves very slowly with cycle monitoring in the morning. Somehow I'm always there for at least 1.5 hours and it doesn't seem full to capacity. Maybe because we have to wait to see the Dr. At trio, you don't get to talk to a dr everytime you come in
