Why is it beneficial to the patient for the IVF lab to be onsite?
IVF is a very delicate and complex process which is very time sensitive. If the entirety of the procedure can take place at one location, it can reduce the time between harvest, insemination and implantation, therefore increase the potential for successful implantation. Also, there will be no need for any samples, frozen embryos or other information to have to travel, maintain the utmost care and confidentiality to be taken. An onsite laboratory also gives the doctor a lot of control over procedures as well as opportunities for research and development of new and advanced technologies to better aid his patients in their journey towards parenthood. Additionally, patients benefit from Dr. Najmabadi being onsite to personally direct their care during treatment. This means that all of the appointments for evaluations, testing, and screenings, and procedures will take place at the same location, where the patient will know and recognize the team who have been part of the process from the beginning. This more developed relationship can help the patients to feel at ease and in good, knowledgeable and experienced hands.
