    Top notch! He's the best ambassador for the clinic; without exaggeration he was the reason why I ended up at lister. His Experience, Personality, charisma, Demeanour and solid character reflect his strong and effective leadership.

    I interviewed and surveyed multiple clinics in London when I first decided to go forward with egg freezing. I used a point based system using the specific criteria/requirements I was looking for to literally rank the clinics in preference order. However, I ended up disregarding my entire checklist as soon as I met Dr. James for my initial consultation at Lister. I immediately felt I was in safe hands, such a humble, transparent and warm person. Most of the clinics in London felt commercial, and most medical directors I met were showing off their success rates, number of procedures they performed daily, and some belittled the actual procedure of egg freezing making my case seem "basic/boring" which can often provoke the patient. Dr. James had a very personal approach in exemplifying his knowledge and it almost felt like each patient of his received their own customised treatment. I emailed him on weekends with random questions that were not necessarily related to my case, and he was always so prompt in responding back to me. Every promise he gave me during the initial consultation was met including his efforts to ensure he performed the procedure himself despite his exceptionally busy schedule.

    After being turned down by the other two top London fertility clinics and falling into depression I almost had lost hope to become a mum. Only pushed out of the door by a friend I visited Dr James Nicopoullos and the world changed. James provided amazing support and encouragement to me. None of my bad test results seemed to be too bad to him. He used to say - don't worry, we'll try something different. Until it worked! I am a happy mummy today with my healthy boy and cannot thank Dr James Nicopoullos enough for the encouragement and professionalism.

    I felt in very safe hands with James Nicopoullos. He listened very patiently in my initial consultation, explained everything extremely clearly and answered all my questions. I felt confident in his knowledge and experience and the end result of my procedure only further corroborated this, having achieved a successful egg collection based on his recommended approach and dosage of drugs etc. Additionally, he was always approachable via email and responsive.

    We came to the Lister for a frozen embryo transfer cycle after multiple failed cycles at other clinics. After consultations with our previous clinic (not in London) and another London clinic, we organised one at the Lister. As both a patient and also a medic, Mr Nicopoullos provided what we felt was the best assessment of our situation and the way forward. He did so in a positive and really friendly and personable manner. I had many questions as both a simulated cycle and then the FET cycle proceeded and via direct email contact was always prompt and responsive to my queries. The communication with the team was clearly excellent also as the nurses always understood what was happening for my treatment. Mr Nicopoullos then undertook the embryo transfer. We were fortunate enough that the cycle worked and we now have an amazing daughter.
