Personal Statement 

I have been working on IVF for over a decade, since 2011. It’s a very important field, yet often underestimated. That’s why I see this work as a space to educate and help couples struggling to start a family. I am able to draw on my many years of gynaecological and obstetric practice, with which I still maintain contact. I have, therefore, a comprehensive perspective on this most sensitive topic.

In IVF treatment, my priority is diligence and transparent communication with both partners about their chances. Patients then enter the treatment process with completely realistic expectations, and they know they can count on my openness and support. Our collaboration at PFC is based on the experience and synergy of all specialists, including those in the laboratory. Our embryologists are very efficient and innovative in many methods. We work together with the necessary drive and explore every possibility to help the couples we treat.
