Dr Martin Balin is a joke

Don't waste your time and money with Dr Balin. He is rude, extremely condescending, perverted, very forgetful, and only after the money. He prescribed a very high dosage of follistim and didn't care to decrease or stop the dosage even after seeing how sick I was quickly feeling and the follicles were ready to be retrieved. He caused me to over hyper stimulate which caused the ivf cycle to get cancelled and he wasted my time and money. He also had me repeat the same painful Hysteroscopy test within short periods of time (one month apart)even though I would say no he insisted and demanded. He even agreed it was unecessary then would have his nurse call me to schedule the testing and he refused to help if I didn't allow him to perform another unnecessary hysteroscopy. He always made remarks about how he "knew me verrrry well" and then he would laugh like a sick pervert. That made me feel very uncomfortable and disgusted. I had another ivf cycle with him that was not successful. During lab work I overheard two of his staff workers discussing how it's always a surprise when he actually gets someone pregnant. Don't waste your time, money, and hopes on this unprofessional perverted doctor.
