About Us

Waterstone Clinic (formerly known as Cork Fertility Centre) has been at the forefront of Reproductive Medicine in Ireland since 2002. Established by Dr John Waterstone, the clinic’s reputation for delivering exceptional care and excellent success rates has grown year on year.  A clearly recognised centre of excellence, Waterstone clinic is Irish owned, independent, and run by experienced clinicians with clinics in Cork, Dublin, Limerick and Waterford.

We have spent the last 16 years investing in research, equipment, and clinics and – most important of all – people. We have led the field in ensuring the most advanced fertility services are available to patients in Ireland. Early adopters of the latest laboratory technological advances we have consistently delivered superior success rates.

Although our carefully chosen team now numbers over 50, we remain a value-driven family that rates honesty, integrity and sincerity above all else. Our patients can expect honest advice about their fertility prospects and effective management of their particular situation.

We offer the full spectrum of assisted conception services at our clinics and our expert care is now available nationwide. We have created a pleasant, non-clinical environment in each of our clinics allowing couples to relax and focus on the matter in hand, their plan to start a family.

Our philosophy

Fertility is a complicated subject with emotional, practical and financial implications.

Our philosophy is to deliver effective treatment responsibly and cost effectively and not to rush in too quickly with treatment when there is a good chance that you will achieve a pregnancy naturally.

You can rely on us for the best possible advice, all the facts you require to make informed decisions and first class care at a competitive price.

You can rely on us not to subject you to any unnecessary ‘add on’ investigations or treatments that have not been scientifically proven to improve chances of success.

We are very proud of how many happy, healthy babies we have brought into the world, but we are every bit as proud of how well we look after our patients, our research programme, our medical team, our laboratories and our clinics. We are renowned for being professional, for adding that personal touch and going that extra mile to help our patients become pregnant.

We will give you a very realistic picture of what is and isn’t possible. If you are interested in consulting us, why not begin by taking advantage of our offer of free telephone or email advice? We’ll be happy to help.
