Ratings for Dr. Jason Hitkari
I went to Dr. Hitkari's fertility clinic Olive fertility for one year. I initially started off with another doctor at the clinic and asked to switch to him after he did one of my procedures as I found him to be very calming to me. Going to an infertility clinic, even being there is very stressful. You are not there because you want to be. He was always very supportive of me. He took time when I failed and when I succeeded. I truly felt like he was cheering for me and wanted me to succeed. I wasn't easy to deal with at times, I was emotional, I was discouraged but he always gave me other options, other things to try that kept me going. And...he got me pregnant. When you go to Olive you become a part of their family. The kindness I felt from Dr. Hitkari and from their nurses was exceptional. If you end up in the crumby situation of needing to go to a fertility clinic you couldn't be in better hands. He is truly made my dreams come true.
I have been seeing Dr.Hitkari for about two years now at the Olive Centre. My partner and I were initially referred to see him to arrange using donor sperm to get pregnant. We met with Dr.Hitkari initially and then came back after about a year to start the treatments. I just felt compelled to write how wonderful we think Dr.Hitkari is. He is just a terrific doctor mostly because he seems to really care about us and about how things go. We also worked closely with Wendy who is the nurse at Olive who helped us pick our sperm donor and was really our regular liaison with the clinic - she is fabulous as well. Anyhow, we just felt that we were cared for so very well that we wanted to write this comment.
Excellent bed side manner but at the same time, I believe that Dr Hitkari is perhaps too busy for his patients. I was disappointed to receive a very general plan and little oversight. In our last meeting, he seemed to at least read less of his notes and appeared to remember who I was. Nice improvement!
An excellent Doctor. He is helping us currently and has been kind and attentive. His staff are quite good except we did have to wait a couple of months to see him. We are very pleased with our care so far and particularly happy to have this doctor helping us.
First meeting seemed caring but actually just gave me general information and was not attentive at all to my needs, my changing medical condition, and overall I felt, just seems to be more interested in reputation and business, rather than helping me conceive. Really disappointed - recommend everyone read the many reviews below
My wife and I had nothing but a positive experience with Dr. Hitkari and the staff at Olive Fertility. We are expecting our first child in 8 weeks and cannot thank Dr. Hitkari enough for the amazing care he provided us during our IVF process.
I would recommend anyone struggling with fertility issues to meet Dr. Hitkari! From our first visit right to our last we always felt like we were in good hands with Dr. Hitkari. He is not only very empathetic and passionate about what he does, but he is extremely knowledgeable about his profession. Compared to other clinics we visited and hearing other stories from friends struggling with fertility issues, Dr. Hitkari is always up to date on the recent research pertaining to fertility so you can always trust that you will be getting the best care possible. If you are struggling with fertility I would highly recommend Dr. Hitkari.
Anyone struggling with fertility knows that it feels as though you are putting your future in the hands of your fertility doctor. As soon as we met Dr. Hitkari, we knew with complete confidence that we were working with the best. His qualifications and accolades are well-documented (Henderson Hill Humanitarian award for his exceptional patient care, Board Member for the Infertility Awareness Association of Canada etc.) but what truly stands out as exceptional is ability to hear you and partner with you to provide the best care for YOU. He has a gift and is truly in the right profession. We need more doctors like him! Without hesitation, we truly believe there is no doctor that we would rather trust our future to than Dr. Hitkari. Thank you for our most precious daughter Dr. Hitkari!
My husband and I could not have asked for better care than that which we received from Dr. Hitkari. Being a father himself, he clearly understood our desperation to become parents and worked with us to quickly discover what was hindering our ability to conceive. We started with IUI's and because we live in Victoria, Dr. Hitkari suggested that we have our IUI's done in Victoria to save us from having to commute to Vancouver for treatment. We really appreciated the time he took to put himself in our shoes and care more about our outcome than our business. We choose to go back to Olive Fertility to have Dr. Hitkari perform our IVF cycle. He always took the time to explain to us every aspect of our treatment, from medications to procedures, to ensure that we felt comfortable with the plan moving forward. We now have a beautiful baby boy and could not be more thankful for Dr. Hitkari and his team at Olive Fertility. I have to say that I am questioning the authenticity of these last few posts since they are so obviously different from my own experience at Olive Fertility with Dr. Hitkari, as well as, the other reviews posted here.
