Everything went to plan

5 50 ICSI - Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection • Paid: 3000 €

I cannot thank you enough for the excellent care and expertise of Dr Karpouzis and his team. Everything went to plan, his detailed analysis and constant attention with all-inclusive scans and tests provided world-class healthcare at a reasonable price.

I failed ICSI treatment the first time in another clinic located in the Czech Republic so was concerned about being successful the second time. But the treatment in Athens by Dr Karpouzis was like clockwork and resulted in me becoming successfully pregnant. The first time we spoke to him he was caring and detailed, this was when we realised the difference and felt confident and comfortable with the ICSI treatment.

Thank you Dr Karpouzis you made my dream come true.

He made my dream come true and I strongly recommend him

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

Dr H. Karpouzis undertook my fertility treatment (IVF, five day embryo transfer) successfully the first time despite a few important difficulties. With a very strong professional attitude, excellent scientific skills as well as communication skills, the whole treatment procedure went by quite smoothly. He made my dream come true and I strongly recommend him!

I got my positive result and I couldn't be happier

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation • Paid: 5 €

Where do I start? I made an inquiry on WhatClinic in July 2018. Much to my surprise, within minutes Dr Karpouzis reached out to me via telephone. We had a very lengthy conversation where he was very thorough about the process and answered all my questions. He suggested a Skype call to be able to talk to both me and my husband and basically explain everything to us once again. He was very knowledgeable and I felt a connection with him right away. I knew he was the right doctor for us. Not only was he knowledgeable, but he was also professional, kind, polite and very patient. We communicated via email for the following months. He was with me every step of the way. Very responsive to all my emails and my texts. I never felt ignored or like just another patient. When he told me that I will be talking only with him from start to finish he wasn't kidding. I only had to deal with him personally. Not his staff. This way nothing got lost in translation.

It's a service he provides that is truly priceless because it makes you feel important and taken care of. I even had to wake him up at 2:30 in the morning one time because I had a question about the medication. He answered. No voicemail to leave a message and he will get back to me. He answered the phone and put my concerns at ease. He has gone above and beyond to make sure I got medication while my daughter was in Greece so she can bring it back to me here in the states, which helped a lot in shortening my stay in Greece. We arrived in Athens on Sept.24, 2018. It was such a pleasure to finally meet this wonderful and amazing doctor who's about to make our dream come true. He was so kind and respectful. So professional. I cannot say enough great things about Dr Karpouzis.

He talked to us, examined me and explained everything to us step by step. Made sure we understood everything so everything went like clockwork up to the day of the embryo transfer. But although I was done with my treatment, it doesn't end there. He still continued to check on me to see how I was feeling. To make sure I was taking all my medication. I was still texting him with silly questions and again always responded. Well, I am back home now. 6 days post embryo transfer. He told me to take the test 12 days post embryo transfer but something was telling me that it worked and I took 2 pregnancy tests. Both gave me a positive result!

We cannot express our gratitude enough for this amazing young talented professional who I believe is top in his field. I wanna tell the whole world how great he is. I would recommend him to anyone who wants personal and professional care and a positive result! It was worth the trip to Greece to be in the hands of the best doctor Dr Karpouzis. Do not hesitate. Book your appointment with him today! I promise you it will be the best decision you ever made. I know it was for me. Thank you Dr Karpouzis!

The Institute of Life is the best! The women who work there are so professional and polite. They were so nice. No bad attitudes to deal with. They were always happy and willing to help. They helped make this experience that much better! The Institute of Life was very clean and is run so professionally and very efficient. All in all, I am very happy with the choices I made.

I am 49 years old, I have a fibroid the size of a grapefruit, I am overweight and this was my very first IVF. Against all odds, everyone else who told me it can't be done, Dr Karpouzis proved them wrong! I got my positive result and I couldn't be happier! He is my miracle doctor excellent doctor. Highly recommend!

An excellent doctor who really cares about his patient and follows up on all areas of your IVF path

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

Dr Harry Karpouzis helped me get pregnant past 43 years old with a history of IVF failures in the best clinics (star professors) in Paris and Barcelona. First time in Greece with him, and I got pregnant where others failed. This was not my case. I had never such a thorough, precise, detail focused, attentive, reflective diagnostic. Dr Harry is a new generation of young talented doctors fully trained in London, and has decided to provide high-quality level treatment in Athens instead of London. His communication is thorough, direct albeit human, very clear, democratic (he explained to me all the steps and I understood them which makes it all easier).

During the treatment, he was able to adapt the dosage day to day according to the daily/ weekly blood and ethnographic (scan) results, something the star centers in Barcelona failed to do as they distributed a standard paper process to everyone to follow, without deepening the case. You want the IVF, then you pay and you follow the list. Doctors don't own you because you never talk to the same one. They don't know your file nor your real case. Same with my Paris prominent clinic.

Dr Harry was the opposite, he made a nailed down tailored treatment, focusing on "hidden" details and precise and adaptation of diagnostic. There is no standardization here. And it REALLY MAKES THE WHOLE DIFFERENCE. This made me get pregnant on the first trial with him. I consider him an excellent doctor, better than the expensive old professors I met before, who really cares about his patient and follows up on all areas of your IVF path. Great communication.

It is the first time, as a seasoned IVF patient, that I felt totally taken in charge. Thank you to him and for the latest IVF practices and knowledge shared and applied. Today I am very happy to be pregnant with an evolutive pregnancy with good prognostics of vitality. Something exceptional at my advanced age ( with my own eggs).

The clinic is state of the art and new, welcoming, and efficient. I never had to wait for more than 10'. It is reachable directly form the city centre in 30' by direct express safe bus. For sure all French doctors nowadays send their patients to Greece rather than Spain or Belgium, and I do understand this big shift.

I would, not hesitate a second to use Perlagos IVF services again. They are excellent.

Everything went so smoothly

5 50 IVF with Donor Eggs

Ι had an IVF cycle with donor eggs with Mr. Karpouzis and his Pelargos IVF team. After 2 failed cycles before, I had a positive result on my first attempt with him. Everything went so smoothly. I am now 28 weeks pregnant.

Mr. Karpouzis was always there for me and I had truly personalised care. He was extremely thorough with his consultations and made me understand the reason for doing what we needed to do. The cost was also really competitive. I strongly recommend him. He is an amazing doctor and person and they really work as a team at Pelargos IVF. Anything you need will be sorted out. Do not hesitate to contact Pelargos IVF and Mr. Karpouzis.

The doctor treats you like a person with emotions and not like a statistic

5 50 IVF - In Vitro Fertilisation

I had 3 failed IVF treatments before in other IVF Centers in Greece and the UK. I hyperstimulated in one of them, needed to spend time at the hospital and my health got in risk.

I had decided not to have an IVF again, because I was too afraid. Mr. Karpouzis consultation though, was so thorough and professional that he convinced me to try again and promised I would have no problem at all.

Indeed, I felt so much reassured by his words, that I got into a cycle with him, which was completely straight forward for me . I had two frozen embryos transferred in the end and now I enjoy my newborn twins.

Mr. Karpouzis treats you like a person with emotions and not like a statistic. The whole team of Pelargos IVF is there to support you in case you need it. It is a 5-star fertility care by them! I strongly recommend him to anybody, who thinks about having an IVF treatment in Greece.

Treated by: Mr Charalampos Karpouzis

Dear Geeta, Thanks a lot for your kind words. I am so glad everything went smoothly and the result was the one we all wanted. I wish all the best for you and your adorable twins . We ll defo keep in touch.
