The last but not least IVF CLINIC AWARD 2017 winner is Gynem Fertility Clinic from Prague, the Czech Republic. Gynem has been recognized in the category of Customer Service & Communications. The clinic understands the needs of fertility patients, especially those coming from abroad and offers a variety of additional services often for no extra charge, for example free online Skype consultation, emergency 24 hour contact and 24/7 support for patients and even free airport pick-up and drop-off (the airport is 10 km away from the clinic).
Why Gynem in Prague?
The clinic itself is located in the heart of Prague, in proximity to hotels and the town centre. It offers a variety of fertility treatments including fresh egg donation cycle, sperm/embryo donation, surrogacy and PGD/PGS. Gynem accepts female patients up to 49 years of age and male patients without limits. The clinic’s success rates are among the top ones in Europe: 63% success rate in IVF with egg donation and 47% in IVF treatment.
Also, the fact that Gynem is family-owned helps build trust and a sense of intimacy for patients. Gynem medical and nurse team focuses not only on medical aspects but also on patients’ wellbeing during the treatment. Moreover, the clinic’s International Patient Coordinators speak English which attracts many patients from abroad especially from the UK or Ireland.
