I had a terrible experience with this doctor and I am not one to typically review a health professional online. I was hyperstimulated after a retrieval and after calling the nurse line with worries about my symptoms was told I was fine (I could not get out of bed for 3 days) and they went ahead with a transfer on schedule which did not work (likely due to the hyperstimulation). They did not check my blood, do any tests or see me to determine I was not hyperstimulated. They had me do over $2000 of blood tests that they said were not covered by insurance, starting out I didn't understand so I just agreed. I was so emotional about the whole thing I just did what they said and only later realized (after switching doctors) that insurance doesn't cover it because it is not clinically indicated. I think the medical providers were negligent. My stimulation hardly yielded any viable embryos. I think this lab is terrible. I tried again with a new doc and new lab and had tons of viable embryos and it worked on the first try with both embryos. When I went ahead with a new doctor they had me wait and do a frozen transfer because they said I was hyperstimulated (whcih they could tell from the monitoring/blood work/ultrasound). I felt completely fine, and especially compared to the first time when I actually had all the symptoms of hyperstimulation to the point that I could not work or move for a few days. I could not believe after going through this with a different practice that they had me go through with the transfer after I was so severely hyperstimulated. They were negligent in not even addressing this at all, I could have had serious complications. I was in my late 20's when I underwent IVF with them and was not a complex case. Have had several IFVs with 100% success elsewhere since.
