What can I say about LIV? From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave you’re treated like family. I started my infertility journey in Canada where I was treated like nothing more than a number and a pay-cheque. The difference is incredible. The doctors and staff at LIV are incredible people who go above and beyond for their patients. My journey with them has only just begun and I am so happy to have them be a part of it.

Our fertility journey began early 2016 in Alberta, Canada, where my wife and I were working with a clinic to prepare for IVF treatment. After a few months of working with that clinic, my wife and I simply felt that something was missing from our experience. So, we started to research International clinics, and found LIV Fertility Center. From day one, our relationship with LIV has been nothing short of efficient, supportive, and comforting. Within one hour of emailing the clinic, Cinthya (Journey Coordinator), called me, and was able to answer all my questions. Shortly after, we were able to Skype with Dr. Flores and Dr. Sonny, which quickly resulted in my wife and I saying “this is the clinic for us”. The doctors kept close contact with us, and readily answered my long stream of questions. Also, we naturally had reservations about traveling Internationally for these procedures, but we were put at ease as we got to know our Doctors and tour their beautiful facility. Going through such a personal and special experience it meant everything to have Doctors and support staff who were truly invested in helping us add to our family. Dr. Flores and Dr. Sonny are truly passionate about what the do, and that comes through in every interaction. We will be forever grateful to our Doctors, Nurse April, and all the staff at LIV Fertility Center.

We found Ivfinmexico on line and were a little cautious about traveling outside the US for IVF treatment as we've been used to seeing doctors in the US, over the past 3 years. There was no need for caution as we could not have had a better, more attentive and caring experience from all the medical staff. We felt very comfortable every step of the way. We are so grateful we found Dr. Stetson and Dr. Flores. They made us feel very welcome and patiently responded to our questions. They both went the extra mile and made themselves available to us any time of the day and night. The IVF clinic uses the latest technology and the doctors and embryologists have incredible expertise in the world of fertility. My husband and I couldn't been happier with our choice. From the moment I began emailing Gisela, inquiring about IVF procedures to the moment we left Mexico, every step of our journey was made stress free from the team. My husband and I turned the medical trip into a mini honeymoon! We fell in love Puerto Vallarta. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. We only wish we came to the IVF clinic in Puerto Vallarta a long time ago! You have made us a family and my sleep is suffering due to sheer excitement as I can't wait to meet our baby boy!!

Perfect Location. Charismatic. Excellent treatment, very professional, personnel is very attentive and very friendly. The clinic is very clean and comfortable. Working with the doctors at LIV, you feel at home in a friendly environment and they inspire a lot of confidence. They explain each and every step of the procedure thoroughly. They are bi-lingual and can communicate perfectly in English or Spanish while being firm and clear. The difference between this fertility center and others we have visited is the fact that the doctors and staff at LIV Fertility Center care about our necessity and they assist us each step of the way. We recommend LIV Fertility Center 100%.

This holiday season I have a lot to be thankful for. Of course I'm grateful for my wonderful family and friends but I would like to give special thanks to Dr. Flores, Dr. Stetson and the amazing staff at LIV Fertility Center in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. After years of trying on our own (without success) to become parents and hearing all the empathetic "it will happen" or "miracles happen" we decided to start our treatment for infertility. Our journey began with regular doctor visits then specialist visits then finally a referral to a fertility center. We went to several fertility centers in and around Portland and at each one we were ushered straight to the financial advisor each time prior to any visit with a doctor. We were given several estimates as far as costs, all of which were far beyond our economic means. We were told that conceiving children would never happen for us naturally and our only option was IVF. We became discouraged and decided to take time and think about our options and process our devastating news. We took about a year before we started our search again and it was during a casual conversation with my sister on the issue she suggested we look into international IVF clinics, surly somewhere offered IVF that was affordable. I contacted five international clinics, two in Mexico. Out of all the clinics I emailed, four responded but only one had a representative call me and leave a message on my voicemail. Alonso was really nice, informative, and wished us luck on our journey to parenthood. So I called him back. We spoke several times and he emailed promptly answering any and all my questions. I researched two final clinics: their success rates, patient experiences, credentials and final costs for each possible procedure we would have to go through. I picked LIV because I had a good feeling about them and once we began the process my relationship with Alonso became much closer as I constantly called and emailed him with more questions, concerns and for advice on travel arrangements. He always called me back and was always so friendly and informative, I truly felt comfortable in our decision to go with LIV. We were able to Skype with the doctors prior to visiting and everything was laid out on a calendar of events and all costs (including medication) was explained before hand for us to budget. They made the process easy and made us feel like family working together for the same goal, and not just a number. Our visit to Puerto Vallarta was surreal: it was a vacation where we focused on us and not work or every day life. It was a paradise setting that helped us relax and enjoy our IVF process as a joyous occasion instead of the pressure of our fears and worries weighing down on us. We absolutely love Dr. Stetson and Dr. Flores as well as the entire staff at the clinic. We joked, laughed, cried, hugged and thanked them time and time again during our IVF process. They encouraged us, gave us advice, worked with us every step of the way and even said a prayer. Which really meant the world to us since we were looking for doctors who really cared and wanted us to be parents as much as we did. We ended up transferring two blastocysts that stuck, became embryos and now 14 week fetal twins I'm successfully carrying. We have really been blessed and we are truly grateful. There really isn't enough I could say or write about these doctors or our experience that fully expresses our feelings of gratitude for them or the whole experience. So if you are reading this long Facebook post and have been searching for the right IVF clinic for your infertility treatment, please give LIV a call or email. I promise you will have made the right decision. If you have any more questions about our personal experience feel free to FB message me privately and I would be more than happy to answer any questions, I know that infertility can feel lonely and that no one understands but I do. And THANK YOU, LIV Fertility Center... I wish we could do more to show our gratitude for having you in our life.

When my husband and I found out we had to have IVF we thought it would be a long time before we could afford to do it. When we found the LIV Fertility Center, it was a miracle for us because with their prices, we could start the journey of becoming parents much sooner than we thought. From start to finish, I felt so taken care of by everyone at the clinic. The nurses and the staff always greeted me and helped with anything I needed, and you knew that the doctors really cared about your well-being. I could contact them any time, and they were always happy to answer all of my many questions. What started out as being a scary experience, they turned into a wonderful journey. As I left the clinic for the last time, I didn't know if I was pregnant or not, but I felt such a gratitude for everyone there no matter the outcome. I knew that they did everything possible for me, and really cared for me. I am so grateful to them for that. And now, because of that wonderful experience in Puerta Vallarta, I am pregnant for the first time, with TWINS! Thank you LIV Fertility Center! We just got back from the doctor and we were told everything looks really good. Both babies have their own placenta and were wiggling all over.

As anyone who has been down the road of IVF planning, it can be a very emotional process. Ever since I first made contact with LIV, I have been impressed with the genuine care and support that the staff have provided. From my first phone call with Alonso , to my first meetings with Gisel and Zaida, up to my consultations with Dr Stetson and Dr Pena, I have been treated as a valued patient, not just a number. Unlike in the US, where fertility has become a business and patients have become statistics, at LIV I feel more like a part of the family. Although I am still in the early stages of this journey, I am grateful to all the staff for their continued support and encouragement.

I recommend the LIV Fertility Center to anyone considering IVF abroad without any reservations. After countless IUI's and failed IVF's over 6 years in the USA and Asia, we had just about lost hope that we would ever conceive. Like many of you reading this post, my wife and I googled IVF in Mexico and found Dr. Horacio Vega, LIV Fertility Center. In December of 2012, we filled out a request to receive information and were contacted by Gisel Soriano, Coordinator. Although, I speak fluent Spanish, my wife only speaks English. Gisel is Bilingual, speaks fluent English and this eased any of our concerns. Gisel was heaven sent. She was professional, kind, patient and very knowledgable. She answered all of our questions and responded to emails promptly. We felt like Gisel and Dr. Vega were ethical people we could trust. And you just can't beat their prices! We decided to give IVF in Mexico a try. Dr. Vega reviewed our medical records and lab results. After carefully studying our case, Dr. Vega felt confident we were good candidates for IVF. Gisel coordinated our treatment based on my wife's cycle, assisted us with obtaining and filling RX prescriptions for fertility meds and provided us with plenty of recommendations for hotel accommodations. In the Spring of 2013, we flew to Mexico for the procedure. Gisel contracted a driver to pick us up at the airport, take us to our hotel to check in and then to our first appointment. Dr. Vega, Gisel and staff provided excellent medical care and a wonderful IVF experience. We returned to the states and 2 weeks later, we received the wonderful news that my wife was pregnant. We are happy to announce that in November of 2013, my wife gave birth to our healthy and beautiful baby girl. We are so happy and feel so blessed to be parents. We are not trying to sell anyone on Mexico or this particular clinic. We just felt that American clients might appreciate hearing a testimonial from someone they can relate to. We will be retuning to see Dr. Vega later this year at the new, state of the art clinic in Puerto Vallarta for another round of IVF. Our baby girl can use a little brother or sister. Good luck to all of you reading this and may God bless you on your journey to parenthood.

The staff at Liv fertility was amazing! I was mid Ivf cycle and on vacation but required monitoring for medication adjustments. Gisel was able to coordinate with my Dr. In the states and arrange my appt. Dr. Horacio was very informative and professional. I recommend this facility for any puerto Vallarta or US individual going through IVF.

From first contact to procedure completion and beyond, the interaction with all staff was amazing. They are extremely attentive to your questions and concerns, every call, text and email was responded to within minutes to a hour - many times speaking directly to Dr.Vega. Everyone at the clinic is deeply invested in the successful outcome of your procedure, very caring and compassionate. You will always be greeted with a hug, a friendly smile, a concerned question as to your well being. The clinic itself is located in a very nice, modern hospital on the top floor and is extremely clean and well thought out. The staff all speak English to varying degrees with front desk administrative assistant Zaida providing excellent translation skills with the clinical staff who do not. If you have need of using donor eggs, you will be provided an extensive bio with pictures upon your choosing of one or more donors and the same goes for sperm donors. We had gone through the Colorado center for reproductive medicine years before and were extremely disappointed in our experience - cold, clinical, we saw the original doctor once during initial visit and only clinical Staff for all treatment, diagnostics, etc after, any questions we had went through the doctors administrative assistant and response times varied between 6 hours to three days. The focus was on up selling services and money - not the person , not the family you were trying to create. After our procedure at LIV, back home when questions, concerns and issues arose we received immediate (even late evening and weekends) texts, calls and emails and nearly always were connected with Dr. Vega to discuss the issue. Other clinics, once you're done with procedure, direct you to contact your gp or ob/gyn. We still email and call if we have questions or symptoms we are worried about, and this is over 5 weeks later. Gisele or Julieta always respond with kindness and concern , Dr. Vega always responds with medical guidance. The lab director, Karla, is deeply committed to your embryos and truly mothers them through each moment of life - she will even provide you with pictures of your growing embryos with dates on high quality photo stock. We would absolutely recommend others to contact LIV in Puerto Vallarta and plan to use them for all ivf procedures.

I am happy to report that it has been a great experience working with everyone at LIV Fertility Center. Their friendly staff really helps relieve the anxiety of going through an IVF procedure. Doctor Horacio was kind and understanding with all my questions and concerns and made me feel at ease. Trust me, I had tons of questions. My husband and I interviewed a couple of fertility centers in Mexico. LIV fertility’s quick response and follow up with all our inquisitions is what made us pick their company. Gisel was great and wonderful to work with. She is definitely a great asset to the company along with Zaida who took care of all of my paperwork needs. I highly recommend working with LIV. Their expertise paired with their compassion and true passion to help people with their fertility issues are just a few of many good reasons to use LIV fertility Center.

My husband and I have been working with Gisel and LIV since June this year. We had our first transfer cycle almost two weeks ago so we still aren't sure of our results just yet, but I really wanted couples to know how much they can trust LIV and how wonderful Gisel is in guiding you through the process; not just payment, but medical questions, prescriptions, even where to stay! We are having our bloodwork done this week, so we are keeping our fingers crossed, and even if this cycle does not work, we are still so grateful for everything Gisel and LIV have done for us!
