Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
After 3 years of various fertility treatments I got to know Nadezhda hospital in the summer of 2016. Friends of mine recommended it to me. I was pleasantly surprised be the fast responses (in comparison to other fertility clinics in Bulgaria), effective organisation and the competent consulting. Especially considering the fact that I live in Switzerland and I needed a reliable partner in order to plan my trips and procedures. Dr. Stamenov and his team did a great job during my treatment, they work very professionally but they also meet the patients with empathy. I got pregnant at the beginning of 2017 and am expecting my twins now …Thank you so much.

"A very good doctor with very precise medical judgment"
100%Reviewed 05 Sep 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
The person in charge of the whole process at Nadezhda clinic is Dr Stamenov. He is a nice person and a very good doctor with very precise medical judgment and excellent bedside manners. He also speaks English and Russian very well.

Dr. Stamenov operated on me in August 2016, and he was also in charge of the first IVF attempt (short protocol) in August & December 2016. The second IVF attempt (long protocol) in May & June 2017, and he did the first transfer in December 2016. The first attempt did not work. The second IVF attempt was managed by Dr. Stamenov but the transfer was performed in June 2017 by Dr. Tihomirova because Dr. Stamenov was away. Dr. Tihomirova is very good, she is a thorough and skilled doctor with outstanding bedside manners. Many thanks to both of them, if I need more treatment, I am coming back to this clinic.

I did some shopping around, my initial search generated five prospective clinics, one in Ukraine, two in Israel, and two in Bulgaria. My choice was overwhelmingly in favor of MEDSPA and Nadezhda clinic. The customer service at Nadezhda is reasonable, but the language barrier is sometimes an issue. All this is resolved and enhanced by MEDSPA service. With MEDSPA the visit to the clinic becomes almost a worry free adventure. In particular, Iva is the person who gets things resolved. There were some minor glitches during my IVF attempts between August 2016 and July 2017, and Iva resolved them all very well.

In addition to Dr. Stamenov and Dr. Tihomirova, other very good doctors I routinely dealt with at Nadezhda hospital are Dr. Petrova and Dr. Heder. Many thanks to them, they offer the highest quality medical attention. In addition to Iva, I also got a lot of help from MEDSPA's Julia and Neya. Many thanks to both of them. Also, many thanks to the lab people who did PGS.

After the second transfer, home-based pregnancy tests would produce negative results every single day. Then, on July 10, 2017, I did the blood pregnancy test and several hours later got an email from the lab with a positive result. An ultrasound scan confirmed pregnancy on July 17, 2017. Heartbeat was confirmed on August 2, 2017. The first trimester is officially over on September 2, 2017. MEDSPA keeps doing their excellent follow-up. So far, things are going very well. I very enthusiastically recommend this clinic.

"Respectful, humane and highly erudite medical team"
100%Reviewed 04 Aug 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone and email.
Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
I have been living in London for the last 21 years and had issues with my health, which I chose to address and rectify at this Clinic. After being failed on numerous occasions at the NHS and private top end Clinics in the UK.

I have found the attitude, diagnostics, IVF treatments, all levels consultations, used medication and medical equipment at highest levels of professionalism and sensible plans. You are not seen as a walking bank account, like other Harley's Street Clinics.

Yes, it has been a turbulent journey of 2 years, but I am a healthy and happy ex-patient of Dr. Stamenov and his Team with a small miracle, our Daughter, due in November 2017. It has not been easy, but I have not met or seen a greater humane or medical support anywhere else in my life. Thank you, Iva, Julia and Dr. Stamenov!

Respectful, humane and highly erudite medical Team. Worthy, all the international travel, time off work, financial investment and belief in their abilities to give hope and create small miracles under Dr. Stamenov and Team.

"I now have two beautiful children"
100%Reviewed 16 Dec 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
After trying to get pregnant with my own eggs for 20 years with no luck, I discovered the unique opportunity to have both egg and sperm donation as a single mom. An option not available in my home country, Denmark.
I now have two beautiful children with this method and never happier.
I would certainly recommend this clinic to others. The staff is professional and delivers great communication in English via the contact person, Iva. She deserves a gold medal.
I got pregnant in the first attempt and still had embryos in the freezer.

"A miracle was performed on me, coaching two high quality eggs out of uncoorperative ovaries"
100%Reviewed 08 Nov 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
(Remote) stimulation and local egg retrieval.

I have spent the better part of the 2016 looking for a good clinic that would provide me with thoughtful (not just 'by the book'), bespoke, cutting edge medical service in my quest to become a mother. And one that would do so at a reasonable price. I found that in Nadezhda in Sofia. I have undergone treatment at a well known clinic in London, and I have consulted in great depth with clinics in Greece, Spain, the Czech Republic, Israel, and Jordan. Nadezhda offered me excellent, timely, affordable medical advice and service. Dr. Stamenov was willing to work with me despite failed attempts at egg retrieval in the past due to poor ovarian reserve. He used modern techniques to consider my overall wellbeing and the wellbeing of the eggs. He doesn't seem as concerned with the statistics of his clinic as he does with the individual success of his clients based on their very specific needs. I feel like he performed a miracle on me, coaching two high quality eggs out of previously uncoorperative ovaries. Iva is also absolutely incredible. She is responsive, thoughtful, helpful, knowledgeable, and kind. It's wonderful having her as a partner on this journey.

"I'm in 18 weeks, and the support of the Team is continuing"
100%Reviewed 31 Jul 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
My name is Despina-Oana Sofronie, Bucharest, 53 years old, pregnant from first attempt at Medspa Nadezdha Clinic.
The treatment was excellent ! Mr. Dr. Stamenov prescribed me treatment based on progesterone and estrogen, and was excellent to keep this treatment. No headaches, no physical problems, no secondary effects. I was felt great, optimistic and confident. At this state of mind the support of Team of clinic and consult at Mr. Dr. Stamenov were essentially. Now, I'm in 18 weeks, and the support of the Team is continuing.

Before came to Medspa Nadezdha Clinic, I stayed on forums and saw others patients opinions, learning from their experiences, and called on other clinics from the world: Greece, Spain, Italy, UK, Portugal, Ukraine, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark,
Austria, India.
Bulgaria was on my list, but first I was looked for price maximum 4500 euro, because I was afraid to make a such credit.
After all calls, I was still undecided.
So, one day I said:" before made a decision, I must call in Bulgaria at Nadezdha, to find out how it is procedure. Nadezdha in romanian is nadejde, which is mean hope. "
So, I called in the morning. Mrs. Iva Stoychova answered to me, and said that she will send to me in that day, on mail, all about clinic and procedures.
I was waiting in the afternoon, evening, and. ..no mail.
At 23.55 in midnight, I received the mail from Mrs. Iva. In that moment I decided at once" this is my clinic were I'll go". Mrs. Iva was after a full day,
tooking care about patients, and made efforts to sent me all materials necessary for me to know about procedures and treatment, and also to kept she's promise to me to sent all during that day.
Without fear I gone at bank and did credit, and I start my mails with Mrs. Iva.
From the first consult, i saw that Mr. Dr. Stamenov is a very professional Doctor, and warm and respectful person.
Usually, I'm afraid of doctors, but Mr. Dr. Stamenov gave me confidence and courage.
And a very important aspect: listen Mr. Dr. Stamenov opinion. Before embryo transfer, I was adviced to accept one embryo, not two as I wished. But, because I was insisted, two embryos were transferred. Unfortunately, in week 8 I lost one of the twins. .. I was very very said, but I started to feel better with one kid instead of two.
My body couldn't carrying twins. ..
At next consultation, I expressed my regrets to Mr. Dr. Stamenov that I didn't followed His opinion:
Now, I'm in 18 weeks, happy with my kid, and have continue support from Mr . Dr. Stamenov, Mrs. Iva Stoychova and Team.
I'm impatient to return at Nadezdha, were is a warm and carrying atmosphere.
I'll do as soon as kid will be able to travel.

"fully endorse Nadezhda Womens Health Hospital as an excellent facility"
100%Reviewed 22 May 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Pregnancy Test, Fertility Specialist Consultation, Ultrasound
We reviewed a number of clinics across Europe and decided to choose Nadezhda Womens Health Hospital for the following reasons:

Dr Stemanov's office is responsible for over 4,000 successful births a year - few we reviewed had this level of success or indeed volume of births

The percentage success rate relating to the procedure we underwent was higher when compared to other clinics and this was also the same when related to the likelihood to become pregnant with twins as well which is what we wanted to happen

Dr Stemanov has great success with women over 40 and generally the clinic has better success than we experienced first hand in the UK

Our liaison point via Medspar - Iva and Julia were excellent prior to attending the hospital so we felt we would be in good hands

Everything via email and via calls was explained in a straightforward manner and all costs were clearly outlined

The outcome - I am now pregnant with twins and 14 weeks pregnant as I write this review

The whole experience with the team here:

Dr Stemanov is wonderful and so are his team. They are caring, patient and you are not rushed in and out of scheduled appointments. It takes as long as it takes for each personal visit to ensure you are fully informed and updated and the next steps are clearly explained. Even though Dr Stemanov speaks excellent English our liaison points with Medspar also attend every appointment with us too because their English is perfect and they make it even more personal so you feel you have a support team in place. Any emails are usually answered the same day but at worst within 24 hours and Iva and Julia are always available 24/7 on the phone.

We have decided also due to flexibility on work commitments to stay in Bulgaria and for me to give birth at this hospital as well. Dr Stemanov appraised of this information decided to see me weekly during the first trimester to make sure my progress was normal and this has been very reassuring. I am now in the hands of another doctor to run the scans and all I can say is that this doctor is excellent too with perfect English and I spent 1 hour and 15 minutes during the scan to make sure all measurements and checks were diligently completed. I can only compare the level of treatment I would expect to receive back in the UK where scans would probably not be completed by a qualified doctor and I suspect I would have been rushed in and out.

I therefore fully endorse Nadezhda Womens Health Hospital as an excellent facility and if you are thinking of using the services of a fertility hospital to get pregnant then you really can't do much better than this one. The care is brilliant as are the staff and team who you will deal with.

"I can't thank them enough for their help"
100%Reviewed 30 Apr 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Fertility Specialist Consultation
Doctor Georgi Stamenov is the best of the best. I went through my first IV cycle with him and all I can say he is an excellent professional. I'm 45 years old an the age is obviously an issue here but he did everything possible to obtain 9 eggs, 7 of which were of good quality. Even though my first round was unsuccessful, I'm confident that he can make it happen! He is that good!!! The staff around him is also very professional and I can't thank them enough for their help! I will see them again in June and hopefully time will be a success! Needless to say that he is extremely busy and booked for the next couple of years. I wish you all the best and ready to fly back to Bilgaria from Seattle in June!

Perfect!
