Ratings for Dr. Elizabeth Anne Claessens
Dr.Claessens and Dr.Ryan are wonderful and up to date fertility doctors! They treated my husband and I with utmost respect and compassion from day1. Staff, and there are many (nurses, receptionists, ultrasound technicians) were always friendly and knew my husband and I by first name after the first visit. The entire office and staff are warm and welcoming, always willing to go the extra mile for you to feel comfortable throughout such a difficult journey. I had been to other fertility centres (Barrie) and was less than impressed. This practice exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this to anyone who requires fertility help. You should not base your rating on whether it was successful or not because that is up to science and your path in life. I cannot imagine that anyone who goes there, successful or not, could ever write anything negative about their experiences. That is so far the opposite of anything I have ever experienced. It was by far the most positive and educational fertility experience I have ever had. And I will be forever grateful for the doctors and staff.
Terrible experience. Out of date and out of touch. Did not let me know my FSH (first was fine and a subsequent one was elevated but not explained to me.) She kept refusing to perform an AMH. Lastly, month after month, I was put off for IVF, despite my repeat requests/expectations. She is not up to date with current practice, gives vague answers and no realistic plan. She is likely only there for the money. Uncaring, unethical, unprofessional and completely lacking expertise. Go to a professional clinic with thorough and up to date services, not this billing/financial revolving door practice.
Dr. Claessens is one of the very few doctors in the GTA who goes beyond simply serving the patent. She treats her patients as more than just a health card number. She genuinely cares about those she serves, with her comforting yet truthful style. Highly recommended for anyone seeking gynecological or fertility services.
I am really happy with this office, the entire staff are super friendly and get to know you by name from day 1. The doctor is very punctual and when going in for cycle monitoring I was in and out! Less then 20 minutes. Dr. Claessens is a great knowledgable and experienced doctor I kind of felt she pushed for medication but said she would most likely get me preggo in 3-6 months. I've been with her for 5 months and found out recently that I am expecting. You need to trust your doctor and follow her treatment plan. Thanks dr. Claessens! Baby dust to all!
Dr. Claeesens and Dr. Ryan are both beyond reproach from our experience. I can only imagine the disposition of the negative responses here but we've been very happy and now are back trying for our 2nd. Full marks and the results speak for themselves - almost a 50% success rate. The staff are also first rate. If you try and fail - my deepest sympathies - but I can say - that none of these responses would likely be written had they been successful - it colours everything. Best of luck to all. Highly recommended.
Every individual has different experiences, some of us have to depend on luck or just the right timing .. We can't judge a doctor on if we get pregnant or not.. Dr. Cleassons is warm and friendly, she explains every procedure and/or issue you may have. And as long as you ask she will answer any other questions you give her.. The staff is just as compassionate and helpful. I've only read reviews and heard of others' experiences with other Fertility Clinics, and I'm sticking to this one so far... I'm not pregnant yet and waiting for results on my first IUI, fingers crossed and very hopeful. If it doesn't happen I'm still confident that the whole Clinic is doing their best. ;)
If you are not that younge and want to get pregnant, do yourself a favour and find another dr. She will keep you for couple years under impression that IVF will be done very soon, but she will be doing diagnosis and inefficient procedures month after month,that way they make money on you for very long, some bills paid by you, some paid by OHIP. You would waste all your money, all your energy, all your time, and all your EGGS and after a couple years would ask yourself how it could happened to you
