Dr. Awadalla and the IRH staff make me feel at home

Your rating: 55 1
I am very blessed that a friend of mine referred me to Dr. Awadalla about a year ago! The world of infertility is a scary, uncomfortable, sad place, but Dr. Awadalla and his staff have made it as easy and comfortable as they can. He is always very informative about the options that are available for your specific situation & diagnosis, and does not push you any sort of intervention (IUI, IVF, surgery, etc.). His practice actually provides a book that he and the 2 other doctors wrote- for free. This book was immensely helpful to me when making the decision to move onto IVF as it gave a very detailed explanation of the process. Any time that I have called the nurses, they have always called back within a few hours (I make sure to call before 4pm to receive a call same day). Additionally, as I have gone through the IVF process, the nurses & Dr. Awadalla have been AMAZING!!! They always provided me with personal care & answered all questions I had before and after my procedures. I honestly feel that they provide an environment where patients can feel like family! Whether it is a nurse calling to deliver bad news with compassion, or expressing true excitement for you when sharing your positive results, I feel each person really cares. I will be sad to leave the practice someday, even though it means I will have achieved my dream of pregnancy/parenthood! I will truly miss Dr. Awadalla and his staff when I "graduate" someday soon.

Dr. A and IRH staff

I feel so fortunate that good friends of ours referred us to Dr. A and IRH two years ago. He and his staff have been so patient and answered our numerous questions and phone calls (if you call their office before 4pm, they return your call the same day). They have also helped us through difficult times and tough decisions by giving us all of the information we needed and taking the time to discuss our options. I have never had a bad experience there, and am always grateful to him and his staff. They were wonderful in helping me through two surgeries and developing a treatment plan. I highly recommended IRH!!!

Dr A AND staff are AMAZING!

I have been with IRH since 2009 and I have had an amazing experience. ALL the staff is amazing so very confused how someone could say they are horrible. I have been with them through the lowest lows and the highest highs. The staff are so supportive and Dr A and Dr Scheiber have been there through some struggling times. I have been through everything....IUI, IVF, Ectopic pregnancy, Healthy pregnancy, Miscarriage with D&C that Dr A performed, and now pregnant again......I cannot express into words how grateful I am of their care. I recommend them to EVERYONE and I am a nurse with high expectations.......couldn't give them a better review...period, end of story!

I am so fortunate and blessed to have found Dr. Awadalla and the entire team at IRH. From the very first appointment, I knew I was in the best hands possible. Dr. A is caring, compassionate, detailed, thorough, yet not afraid to get straight to the point. He is comforting and always greets you with a warm smile. When I was faced with the decision to remove both my tubes to give the very best chance of IVF working, Dr. A helped walk me through my decision. He didn’t rush me out the door, yet instead he sat down for about 45 minutes and helped me to weigh the pros and cons of my choice. As far as the IRH staff goes, I have not met one single person who doesn’t demonstrate through their work how much they love their job. Always greeted with a smile, the nurses are beyond helpful and caring. I have had to call numerous times for minor questions, and always received a return call and the help I needed. They even have an online peer-to-peer support group for patients of IRH. With monthly meetings, and an online discussion board, I no longer felt alone in my journey. This extra support has tremendously helped my journey. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to everyone at IRH!!!!

I love Dr.A and his staff! After years of failed infertility he gave us the hope we needed. We originally lived in Ky but were relocated 25 hours away in west Texas, we tried other physicians here but no one compared to Dr A or IRH so we make the trip to see him and it's worth the extra expense! The nurses always take their time to answer all my questions and make sure we are comfortable. Dr A is willing to listen and take into consideration our desires along the way. I couldn't ask for better healthcare providers! Thank you IRH!

Dr Awadalla is very nice but his Staff is horrible

Your rating: 35 1
Dr Awadalla is very nice, very knowledgeable, always on time, and explains things very well. He is also methodical in his approach; he does not just rush to the treatment. I would give him a 5 BUT HIS STAFF is horrible. The nurses at the Rookwood location are the coldest beings on earth. They do not smile, they do not care about patients. Just a number that comes in and out. I told one of them once that my back was hurting and she did not react except for a "ah huh". No compassion or whatsoever. And I do smile at them, say with enthusiasm "Hi, how are you?"... I am lucky if I get "Good"... I do not think they ever asked how I was doing. The first sentence is usually "Do you need to empty your bladder?" They are also very choiceful about returning phone calls. I leave them voicemails about appointments and 1 out of 3 they retun the call. I wish I could just go in directly to the doctor without having to see his nurses!
