works closely with all PFC's doctors, especially with Dr. Sonja Lazarovska. Her approach to
patient coordination is to build trust and an open relationship even before they
meet in person. “When I finally meet a patient in Prague, it often seems as

compassion and perseverance is the only way to help them reach their desired
goal of becoming parents.
When Elida is not working, she is taking care of her close and extended
family, the anchor of her life. She is the proud mother of three boys.
