I am with Dr. Virro and I very recently lost my baby at 8 weeks of pregnancy - I did my double donor cycle abroad, in the Ukraine. Dr. Virro looked after me when I returned from Europe. My baby also had a strong heartbeat and great Beta numbers, I was reassured by Dr. Virro, along with my doctor Lvov, along with two separate doctors at Urgent Care Trilliam in Etobicoke, that this was a good sign. I still kept bleeding - I lost the baby after two weeks of bleeding. From my own experience, I understand how you feel and I send you my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I still feel sad for my own loss. But know that at that stage, there is very little, if anything that can be done to prevent such a loss, so it is not for lack of trying, either on Dr. Virro's part, or on the part of the doctors I saw at Trillium in Etobicoke. I think Dr. Virro is very sensitive, in that, he is careful about what he shares with his patients, trying to prevent them from getting upset or worried. After my loss, I went to my family doctor to let her know what happened to my pregnancy; she explained that when she was in medical school in Egypt, they found that when they autopsied these babies that had died so early, they all had something terribly and significantly wrong with them, like the baby had no brain. She explained that these babies would never survive outside of the womb. Honestly, that gave me the perspective I needed to move on emotionally, to try an heal. From my heart, I wish you all the best. But know that the doctors do try, it is just very limited in what can be done at such an early stage. I myself am strongly considering going elsewhere in Eastern Europe for another go at it, should I decide to pursue this again. I understand how you feel, I myself am trying to consider if I can emotionally go through another loss like this, so, I understand your pain and confusion. I wish you strength and healing.
Dr Virro and Dr Garcia worked together as a team to get me pregnant and it worked. My only issue was I started bleeding a week later and I complained I was having a miscarriage to the clinic many times. They called me in for blood work twice and stated my Pregnancy test was rising up so amazing and then they finally cashed our check and called me in for an ultrasound to tell me there was nothing there after 7 weeks and couldn't explain why there was a miscarriage when a week ago I was bleeding but doing great:( I'm not understanding why they wouldn't help me when I was miss carrying and made me believe that I was doing great or at least explain me there is nothing they can do. I'm not sure about all clinics and $12000 each procedure hit or miss is like taking your new car to a backyard mechanic. We are innocent Canadians and expect professionalism especially that our our government has said no to cover as much treatment needed. Some lucky Canadians are against this true illness but when cancer strikes them they want tax payers to help all the way and I agree. All sicknesses should be helped. Please keep an opened mind that these problems are hard to solve in one procedure. We are very hurt after 3 failed attempts. We are not blaming the clinics but this area needs help and one procedure is not enough to recognize the problems.
I had done fertility treatments at other enters without achieving pregnancy. I found Dr. Virro and MFC and my husband and I decided they would be our last try. We were so pleasantly surprised with how pleasant and helpful the staff were. Dr. Virro was efficient, intelligent and seemed caring. He was professional and focused on how to get us pregnant. Our subsequent visits with him were pleasant and his staff always had smiles and chatted with us. I have high respect for Dr. Virro. When I did get pregnant from our first try, he admitted this was not all his doing and that there was an element of luck involved. I highly recommend Dr. Virro; he is an excellent doctor, human being and has put together a wonderful clinic with what is likely one of the best embryology labs in North America.
Dr. Virro is a fantastic fertility specialist and human being. My husband and I had multiple miscarriages before seeing him. He sent us both for blood work and other tests before even suggesting IVF. Based on the results, he gave us a plan. Thanks to him and his expertise in this field, we have a beautiful baby girl. He is not GOD but he knows his stuff and knows it well. Thank you Dr. Virro!
I am very surprised with all the positive reviews. I went to see the"god" doctor a couple of years ago. I was soo embarrassed with my visit. When my tests results were returned he continued to discuss my results in the waiting room...making it clear to everyone listening that I had an issue and was to blame for my wife and I not being able to conceive.
Turns out his staff misinformed with the proper procedure for the test. I went to 3 other doctors to do the same test. I am fine!!!! No one can convince me that Dr. Virro has his patient's best interests in mind. In good conscience, I cannot give a positive review.
There is a reason why Dr. Virro specializes in fertility, gynecology, and obstetrics. I have never met a male doctor who is more understanding and supportive of what women go through. Although my infertility issues have developed into more complicated medical issues, Dr. Virro has been a true advocate in finding me the specialized care that I've needed. Throughout this extremely difficult journey, Dr. Virro and his staff have demonstrated a great deal of compassion and support. They have been extremely helpful to me in these past several months, and I intend to follow up with Dr. Virro for all of my gynecological needs, despite the fact that I don't live anywhere near Markham. MFC is NOT out to get your money. Fertility treatment is expensive and the staff deserves every penny they get for all the long hours they work, for each individual case they deal with, and for all the patience they have. I have nothing but positive things to say about this clinic and they have proven to me time and time again that they are doing the best they can to help every one of their patients. I would trust Dr. Virro with my life.
I find the preceding comment rather puzzling. Dr. Virro is a OB/GYN that focuses or specializes in fertility matters, not Oncology, which is the area of medicine that deals with cancer. I am genuinely sorry for this person - my heart goes out to anyone that has cancer.
Thus far, my experience with Dr. Virro has been that he does respond to emails - in fact, I have been a pain in the neck lately, with respect to emails, and Dr. Virro has been VERY patient with me, by responding to all of my emails in a fairly timely manner. My experience has been in STARK CONTRAST to the that noted in the preceding commentary. With respect to getting in to see him, I surmise that he focuses on fertility issues - this is derived from the fact that it is a fertility clinic that he runs. Again, my heart goes out to the person who had written the preceding comment, please get in to see an Oncologist asap, as, this is their area of expertise & they will be able to help you. From my heart, I wish you all of the best.
Have your baby/babies and leave. Do not stay on with him as your gynecology Dr. Find someone else he will have no time for you or Tina may not let you see him even if you are bleeding and have been to emergency. Be careful ladies I have stage 3 cancer.
Dr. Virro is truly a wonderful doctor. After trips to 2 different fertility clinics and not getting any straight answers, Dr. Virro was able to get to the root cause of our issues right away. He gave delivered the news in a very straight forward manner and told us he wouldn't waste time doing other treatments that probably wouldn't work for us. I am now 30 weeks pregnant and it is thanks to him. He's definitely not on-time all the time, but really what doctor is. I always felt he took the time he needed with me and never felt rushed, so I'm willing to wait a little longer for that. Staff are great and helpful with any problems or questions you encounter. Highly recommend this clinic.
I think he is an angel. My laparoscopy didn't take long time and not complicated one. But, even through a small operation, I can tell he is an excellent doctor. Trust is the most important thing between an doctor and an patient. He absolutely own my trust. Hard to see why but you will know when you look at his eyes.
