emBIO has been reviewed by patients many times; it has gathered over 110 Google Business reviews. Check some of them below:

“We had the luck to have worked with Dr.Thanos Paraschos on the implantation of our daughter. He was always so kind to answering all our questions which made the process stress and worry free. We felt very cared for. We never felt like we were just treated like a number. Now we have the sweetest little girl and we have him and his wonderful team to thank for!”

Reviewed by Triola Clothing

“Excellent! We found IVF Embio by chance last year after moving to Athens, my wife checked out their open night to get information and she liked the people working there so we got started. It was nice to go to a clinic where we felt to be a priority, had opportunity to ask as many questions as we wanted with Dr. Thanos and didn’t feel rushed. Appointment times were also quite flexible. And now we have a healthy baby, we’d say its totally worth giving IVF Embio a shot. Thanks to everyone who helped us!”

Reviewed by Elsa Raphael

“Dr Thanos is always genuinely friendly and takes as much or as little time as you want to go through the details. Not once did we feel rushed or put off from asking our many questions. But most importantly, he delivers results, we already have one amazing baby and number two is now on the way! We can’t thank him enough and would not hesitate to recommend him.”
