Hi!

I'm looking to hear from anyone about their experiences with the Kitchener location since they started operating as a full service facility. I have been a patient in Ottawa but considering a switch if we pursue another round of IVF this year. Also, what was the wait time to get a consultation?

Very grateful for any feedback you have!

Hi taitertot!

We started our IVF journey at One Fertility, but quickly changed over to TCART for a few reasons:

1) we didn't trust the lab staff. On more than one occasion they were confused about what tests we were there for, and what supplies we needed.

2) I didn't find the admin staff very friendly and despite me having been there a number of time they never knew who I was

3) at the time three women from my work who had started there and done a number of procedures without success switched to TCART and were successful

Now, that being said TCART has not been perfect either! If you want more info about them send me a message and I'd be happy to share my experience.

Thanks very much Vicchick33! Sorry I didn't get a notification that anyone had replied so I missed this. Very helpful information. I have a friend with a positive experience and now this balances that out somewhat. It's the same with my current clinic.  I have had negative experiences but I know people who love it. Toronto is harder to cycle at because I have family in K-W I could stay with. I will PM  you get more info though!
