I'm with Baratz at Create and really like him. I moved to Create from Trio where I initially had Dr. Bentov, he left the clinic right after my clinic and I was moved to Dr. Chang. I have nothing nice to say about Dr. Chang. I moved my one embryo to Create, even though I then lost the funding for transferring it, because I found Dr. Chang incompetent and horribly rude. Dr. Baratz figured out my lining issue and has been great to work with. Baratz will try new protocols and is always looking at the latest research.
Dr. Librach is the other male doctor at Create. I've heard great things about him but he is notoriously late for everything. He takes a lot of time with each patient. So he can run 2-3 hours behind schedule. Baratz is super punctual and keeps things moving. I will say that it is super busy clinic. They see a ton of patients. This is what I wanted after seeing an RE that obviously had less experience and fewer options when things weren't going well. If you're a straight forward case it might be easier to go to a less busy clinic where you will get more attention. If you've had a cycle not go well, I think Create is a good choice for another opinion.
I also think it is worth getting an opinion from two REs at different clinics. It feels weird to shop for healthcare as Canadians but in this case it is necessary. You need to be 100% confident you're with the right clinic and RE for you. The investment is too large to spend time and money anywhere that you're not sure on the care.
FYI you posted this in ask the andrologist. Do you have male factor that you had a question on?
