I am astonished that over the past three years I have been extensively tested by six fertility clinics and two gynaecologists and you are the first to recommend an endometrial biopsy that identified this strep issue! Thank you for leaving no stone unturned—I am very grateful for that.

Dr Koita has provided incredible support throughout my fertility process. To be able to have face to face consultations phone and text support when needed has made me feel very well informed and fit in around my hectic work schedule. Dr Koita’s website and tutorial videos helped me to prepare for the treatment and procedure. Dr Koita provides such compassion and kindness. Thank you to Dr Koita and the team at Boston Place for taking such good care of me.

Dr Irfana has been an amazing source of knowledge and support since the day of my initial consultation. She explains everything in layman's terms, goes above and beyond answering all of my emails even after a consultation where I may have forgotten to ask something and is very thorough with her examinations and recommendations. While I am not yet pregnant, I fully trust Dr. Irfana, as she has helped me to discover things I would not have discovered on my own. I can't recommend Dr Irfana enough. Thank you.

We recently did our second cycle of IVF with Irfana after a very difficult experience with an NHS clinic. The care we received from her was outstanding. She is with you every step of the way and always makes time to listen to your questions or concerns or to explain each process. We never felt like a 'number' or 'statistic' and we received a protocol that was individual to us. On our first round we did not make it to transfer and this time we have managed to freeze an embryo - something i thought would never happen. I am convinced this is because of Irfana's attention to detail and high level of expertise. Nothing is guaranteed but it makes such a difference to have a doctor who works so hard on our behalf. Thanks again.

I had 1 successful round of IVF with the NHS, following that I went back to the NHS for my Frozen transfer. I was given a protocol however it was cancelled as my body did not respond to the the treatment. I was then told that I should have a 2 month break and return to the same protocol. Feeling disheartened, i went in search for a second opinion. I found Dr Irfana Koita via a web search and booked an appointment for a second opinion. I was received in a very warm and friendly environment and Dr Koita listened to my story patiently. She has a very professional but also a very caring nature which comes across in her presence. I was instantly at ease. She explained my options, of which there were many, and assured me that with rigorous assessments along the way we can ensure the correct environment is created for our frozen embryo. It is very clear that Dr Koita is exceptionally experienced in her field and the treatment plan comes across as second nature to her. NHS wanted my body to fit around their fixed protocol however Dr Koita ensured that my protocol fitted around my body. I absolutely recommend Dr Koita for anyone on the IVF journey. We are ever so grateful to her

I would strongly recommend Dr Irfana, we tried a couple of times unsuccessfully in the USA and she immediately spotted what they did wrong and recommended a different course of medication bespoke to my wife’s needs. She was accessible all through the process providing information and reassurance along this journey. We are now pregnant first time with plenty of fertile embryos for baby no2.

We'd had treatment at several places before being introduced to Dr Koita through a friend. We could tell straight away that her attention to detail was different to what we'd experienced before. Dr Koita went through our case in meticulous detail. We couldn't speak highly enough of the way Dr Koita managed our treatment. She was always available to respond to queries, it was never too late! At a stressful time, the team at IVF Matters and Boston Place did everything to make the journey as seamless as possible. The whole team is incredibly helpful and caring. We wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending Dr Koita.

There was a time when I had no hope, feeling let down and really not taken seriously, that is until I spoke with Dr Irfana. The information and advice that she gave me were bountiful. Dr Irfana spoke to me in a way of understanding what I had gone through. Her explanations were on point as to her diagrams. She is very easy to speak to and with a welcoming smile. IHer knowledge is beyond what my own GP knows. I also like the fact that at whatever stage I am in this process Dr Irfana is only a phone call away. I look forward to meeting up with Dr Irfana again so until then I shall continue with what she has told me to do. IF I know of anyone who feels they have nowhere to turn, I shall most definitely recommend Dr Irfana. Once again Thank you for all that you have done and continue to do for me. Bless you Dr Irfana.

We got in touch with Dr Koita after listening to her on The Fertility Podcast. We arranged a consultation with her (after 18 months of ttc) to get a second opinion on our situation after going through all the NHS testing with little clarity of what we should do next. She listened to all of our concerns and within an hour I felt so much more in control than I had in months. She recommended a few additional tests to give us further information and to ease our worries. We have since begun fertility treatment with Dr Koita and she has been so supportive throughout the process. I think what makes her unique is how accessible she makes herself to her patients - she is always on hand to talk, text and answers my emails (often full of questions!) which has been such a step-change from our other experiences. Thank you.

I sought out Dr Irfana through IVF Matters after having a previous IVF cycle elsewhere which was unsuccessful. Other consultants I had spoken to were often too robotic or regimented in their approach; and I often left feeling more confused then when I'd gone in; questioning how unbiased or realistic their advice had been. Dr Irfana has a warm, approachable manner- but she is thorough and efficient and explains things very well so that you have a real understanding of the advice that she has given. We're still mid way through our treatment under Dr Irfana but her support has been truly astounding. She was always on hand for guide and support from the very first consultation up until now- and she still is! IVF can be a minefield of stress and excess information and I can't recommend Dr Irfana enough as someone who can help you make sense of it all.

I just wanted to say let you know I've done a pregnancy test and I'm pregnant! I'm absolutely over the moon, I know it's very early days and a long way to go yet but I never thought this would happen for me and I'm just so excited. Words can't really explain very well how I feel but I just want to express a massive thank you so much for believing you could help me and for giving me the confidence to believe you could and for trusting in something different. To actually be pregnant with my own egg isn't something I thought could happen. Thank you so much for your calm advice, help, and expertise throughout each step so far.
