I am curious about the same thing. Thinking about switching clinics. Currently we are with Mt Sinai, have a DS from our fresh cycle and just did 3 FETs - BFN. Tired of all the travel downtown. Not sure what our next steps will be - thinking about getting a referral to PROCREA. Good luck. Pls keep us posted as you go through your appts.

Hollie, I won't be cycling again for probably a year. I was successful on my IVF attempt and am due in November, but I am already looking into the FET process.

Hi Hollie- I will be starting up there in Sept./October. I was taking a break from it all, but will likely start up in the fall. How is the new clinic? I think you were also at Markham? For me, this new location is great, because it is much closer for me. Good luck with your current cycle!

Hi Mabella,

The new clinic is FABULOUS :) We were told it was really nice but words really don't do it justice !! There is also no intimidating lineup as soon as you walk in, so that's nice. Monitoring seems to go much faster. I like how everything is all organized. It's also much closer to us ... Markham was 40mins, and Procrea is 20mins, and a MUCH nicer drive :)

Good luck w/ your upcoming cycle :)

That's great to know that the monitoring is faster than at Markham. I was worried that the monitoring would be lengthy. The new clinic is beautiful and everyone is very attentive (as usual).

I will be cycling in September. Unfortunately the new clinic is much further than Markham but Dr. Belej-Rak is worth it.

Hey Hollie, wow I'm looking forward to seeing it now! (although it's been nice not thinking about all the cycling stuff over the summer) But I think I am ready to get back into it, and maybe the change in scenery will help. I use to hate the drive to Markham, since it was such a boring drive down stouffville road, from Richmond Hill. Nice to hear about the no 'intimidating lineup'..lol, totally get what you mean though! Nice to know it seems faster. I tend to have my 3 year old with me, which can make it seem even longer. Thanks for the update!
