Dr. Charalampos Is an amazing man. He was always so happy never anger when coming to office always seem happy. Always made me feel comfortable and we would laugh and just always glad to see him when I came to the office...We only did one embryo. Would have been nice to do two but I guess for safety measure. But super happy regardless...Be patient and listen and trust the process. Even though it can be difficult at times.
From the front desk to the cleaning staff [at Kofinas Fertility Group are] amazing. The Drs and the nursing staff all great. For weakness I didn’t see any because I always felt they always are on point. The area loud outside because of construction but once you walk in the doors you don’t hear anything from outside... All the nurses are sweet ladies and I have fussy veins but always so gentle and was able to draw blood
