Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum and start a journey like others. It's lonely, frastrated, and unknownly scary. Looking for buddies in Vancouver so we can exchange information and support each other. My first appointment with Olive was good, that's why I chose this clinic. But the second and third appointment makes me feel like that they are doing this as a factory, the doctor treated me like a job that needs to be done, not a real human. Wondering other woman's choice in Vancouver? Is pcrm better?

I just had my first phone appointment with Dr.Tallon! They are efficient and caring. The clinic was recommended by my family doctor and my OB as well. I believe they will do a good job my dear:) glad to see someone who is on the journey with my!! Thank you

Had my first baby after 1 round of ivf, one failed ICSI/euploid FET, an ERA test and the finally a successful FET (euploid embryo) at Olive.

2 years later, Im in 2ww after another round of ivf and single euploid embryo FET at age 40 at Olive. 3 euploid embryos retrieved.

Great experience but Im a pretty low maintenance patient. You rarely see the same doctor but everyone I have seen has been great.
Age 36. DH: 38 Dx: one blocked tube (I think ovary on that side is dominant). TTC: 1.5 years
IVF#1: antagonist protocol -Menopur, Puregon, Orgalutron, 12 days of Stim, Trigger = decapeptyl, high estradiol but no OHSS
15 follicles > 12 mature eggs > 9 fertilized > 7 3-day > 7 5 day > 5 6 day sent for CCS, and frozen
CCS: 2 euploid, 1 aneuploid, 2 partial or segmental mosaics (one has an extra fragment of X, the other 14)
FET or another round of IVF??
Prognosis for segmental mosaics embryos??? Study shoes the have the same rate of live birth as euploid or normal embryos!!!

Disheartening, I hope you get the right physician who values the job well.

Olive is a busy clinic, so I can understand how you feel the way you do.  However, our main doctor (Dr. Nakhuda) was there for us when we needed him.  Whenever we sent him questions by e-mail, he would answer promptly (some of his e-mails were written at 10pm!).  And after our first failed FET, my wife was able to schedule a phone consult with him to discuss our next steps in more detail.  We were fortunate that our second FET succeeded, but even if it hadn't, I would still recommend Olive.  We dealt with most of the doctors there and only had issues with one doctor, who is no longer at the clinic.  My wife also really liked Dr. Taylor and Dr. Yuzpe.

I don't have experience with Olive but one thing to consider is that each person has different needs when it comes to care. For me, we have an RE with not the greatest personality, but I completely trust him from a technical perspective. For me, I don't need a salesman and someone that really "cares" about me personally, I want to know that he/she is doing the best for the best outcome. I totally understand if this is not sufficient care for someone else.
