Hi BabyFan....sorry to hear what you went through . I'm a patient at OVO, so far i had a pretty good experience with them. I have not gone so far in my IVF cycle but soon i'll be going through ER and ET. I'm still on stims. I have heard good things about Montreal Fertility Clinic as well. Infact there is a clinic chat in this forum, that's very helpful too. Hope all goes well with you.

I've had a great experience at Procrea.... (BFP from them). Very professional - clean office, I enjoyed the Dr's and embryologists. Great/easy communication all the time. Dr's are experienced. They have good stats. Free parking! LOL! No wait time.
MFC is definitely a high contender... very small and personal. I wanted to cycle there, but since he closes the entire clinic during the holidays, and during summer months, it wasn't for us.
I tried MRC - and was so turned off by their organizational skills that I never returned. plus, I would have had to redo all the tests (lapo, hysto ect...) even though our issue was MF. It was standard procedure and that really turned me off. All he had to do was look at my file and see that it wasn't needed.
I didn't enjoy Ovo. After our appointment with them, we both left feeling like it wasn't the place for us. It's really big! The Dr that we had was pushing for all these extra tests... (that cost a lot of money) when I didn't feel they were at all necessary. I think we just had a bad experience with the Dr... but i turned us off.
Go visit the other clinics. You'll never know until you see and meet Dr's. They will go over your file and propose a new plan of action. Then, you go with the one you feel comfortable with. That's what we did. And it worked!

I wanted to stop by to say that I am sorry about your experience with that clinic and doctor.
I hope things go much better with the next clinic and cycle.
So many things have to fall into place for a good cycle and good medical relationship to flourish. I always say that trusting your instincts is the best thing to do.
All the best to you.

So sorry to read about what you went thru.. that is a complete nightmare for someone in our position.
I tried McGill and MFC, although I had no issues with my Dr at McGill, I prefered the atmosphere at MFC. It is smaller, warmer etc... HOWEVER; the last few times I was there, it was extremely busy, I never had my u/s on time. But still, compared to the wait time at McGill for an u/s, the wait time in the waiting room was still reasonnable. I did not go to OVO, Procrea or CHUM, so i can't say anything about them.
Good luck and I hope you find the right clinic for you
