I had nothing but a wonderful

Your rating: 55 1
I had nothing but a wonderful experience with UNC Fertility. I could not have asked for a better team to lean on during infertility issues. All the doctors, nurses and staff turned into family throughout the process. They always had smiles on their faces and very welcoming. I saw a different doctor based on my body and their schedules as well as our schedules. This wasn't a bad thing. We had an amazing time with all of them. Our nurse Mindy was absolutely phenomenal. I could not have asked for a better person by our side. I know the rest of the nurses are awesome also I just didn't get the one on one with them. When we graduated from there it was very bittersweet. I hated to go but knew that we were leaving because of success. We still have frozen babies that are worth the wait and when we are ready for another we will go back again. I cannot complain about the finances because our insurance covered almost all of it. However, even if it didn't we were prepared to do what it took to get to where we wanted to be. All departments were more than happy to answer any questions we had. There aren't enough stars for this review in my opinion. :-) We loved UNC Fertility and would do it all over again and again and again.

Poor Service and Extreme Negligence

Your rating: 15 1
Poor Service, Extreme Negligence, and Third World Care with a First World Veneer. This clinic is a living nightmare. My wife suffered ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome after having her eggs harvested at this clinic, and it was entirely attributable to the clinic's negligence - she NEVER received the medication to halt the stimulation, hence the hyperstimulation, as well as having been stimulated over a week longer than the normal time. (She gained over ten pounds of fluid weight in her stomach as a result of the hyperstimulation, which then had to be drained by the use of a delicate procedure which we were also billed for.) More on this... After a few days of the eggs being harvested my wife began to notice the weight gain and her stomach being so full she could barely eat. We informed the clinic of what was happening and they promptly saw us. Unfortunately, after seeing a Doctor at the clinic she told us that she believed it was simple constipation, and not ovarian hyperstimulation - because hyperstimulation is so rare (but probably not that rare when the medication to halt the stimulation is never received by the patient). My wife proceeded to take numerous laxatives daily for the next week but the weight only grew and grew. Finally it got so bad we took her to the ER, and they performed a CT scan in which all the fluid in her stomach was documented. The Doctors at the hospital then diagnosed the hyperstimulation, and informed the clinic of the diagnosis. The clinic now had its back against the wall, and had to do something about it. The clinic drained the fluid - even though my wife overheard them say that they were utterly unprepared to do the procedure - over the span of a few visits, and they openly admitted it was their negligence that caused this to happen. Having heard them concede fault I assumed I would not get billed for the procedures to correct their error, but I was wrong. But wait, there is much more... Obviously with this level of extreme negligence the Doctors at the ER actually implied when they saw my wife, and had heard what had happened that we should sue the clinic. I contacted several law firms, but unfortunately medical malpractice in North Carolina is ostensibly very difficult, and unless my wife had been seriously injured without chance of recovery there was basically no case. Also, we were told the cost of egg storage initially would be closer to $300 a year, not the $500 we are getting charged. (A further lie we were told was that the first year of the storage would be covered in the $4,000 initial payment we made to have the eggs harvested.) The entire reason why my wife and I had the eggs harvested to begin with is that she has to undergo chemotherapy for a type of brain cancer, and there is the possiblity of the chemo harming her eggs. However after our experiences with this clinic we truly questioned whether we would have been better off not ever having set foot there. Please learn from our experience, and choose your fertility clinic wisely.
