i have been very lucky to strike the 'lottery' from my very first trial of IVF. i am in my 10 weeks of pregnancy now. I did my IVF over at Concept under the care of Dr Mahes Sittampalam and the ever friendly coordinator, Ms Lu Yee. i would like to recommend for those who would like to try IVF, you can consider Concept. I paid RM13K for my whole treatment cycle as it's a package. for Concept, i would say, never judge a book by its cover. the place is not fantastically nice and i would categorize it as average but the services, explaination, doctor, coordinator and the embryologists are first class. i am very thankful to them for helping me throughout the whole treatment cycle.
