About Sofia Hospital of Reproductive Medicine

The Clinic

The Sofia Hospital of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproductive Medicine, formed in 2004, is one of Bulgaria’s top three largest and most patient-friendly clinics. In 2011, we moved to purpose designed new premises built and equipped to the strictest European and world healthcare standards. The Clinic has a diagnostic and consultation sector, operating theatres and treatment rooms, in-patient wards, an embryological laboratory, a diagnostic analysis laboratory, and a cryobank. All laboratories, surgeries and treatment areas are equipped with the latest assisted reproduction technology.

The building is located in a leafy, calm part of the metropolis, far from noise and pollution, yet just 20 minutes from the airport. One of the city’s better four-star hotels is right next to the Clinic, offering additional convenience to our patients.

The Clinic is open seven days a week. Prices for Bulgarian and foreign patients are identical. No time is wasted waiting in queues.

Each year, Clinic specialists take part in Annual Conference of the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) and sit a number of courses. Doctors and other medical grades speak English. A special coordinator helps foreign patients.

from 2 verified reviews Patient Reviews of Sofia Hospital of Reproductive Medicine

"Personal care and attention by all staff members"
100%Reviewed 29 Mar 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation
We wanted our case to be considered personally and in depth by the treating doctor, because we had two miscarriages before. And we found this in Sofia IVF clinic. The first round of treatment was more or less exploratory and on the second time we succeeded.

The clinic staff replied timely to our questions, providing helpful information on their procedures, costs breakdown and the legal situation with IVF in Bulgaria. We were impressed mostly by two things
- the personal care and attention by all staff members
- the state-of-art IVF technologies, equipment and diagnostics
