    Dr Bora has been exceptionally helpful every step of the way. So far, our IVF journey has been anything other than straightforward (no doubt like many). She has done a brilliant job of explaining our problems, answering our questions and soothing our anxiety. Both during our formal consultations but also - very helpfully - by responding to our follow-up emails promptly and always with kindness.

    Shabana, is an incredibly personable and knowledgeable doctor. She is transparent and thorough in her communication and genuinely cares about her patients. I've had a real uphill battle with egg freezing and she's been there every step of the way, making time to communicate frequently and respond to my questions, it's been so reassuring to navigate with her by your side.

    Dr Bora helped my husband and I conceive our daughter, after having had failed IVF rounds via the NHS. Dr Bora was generous with her time, explained all options to us clearly, and gave excellent advice and guidance throughout the process. We are very grateful to her for her expertise.

    The service and care we received from Dr Bora was exceptional. We felt so confident and reassured under her care. She really took the time to explain everything to us and went above and beyond in her service. We certainly wouldn’t have had our daughters without Shabana’s support and we can’t thank her enough.
