Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Texas.
The clinic is located in the central part of town, making it easily accessible. The waiting area could be a little bigger, as there's often couple coming in for appointments. With a long couch and three chairs, patients are often standing in a corner or propped against the furniture. I will say that the waiting area is always neat and clean.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Allon takes the time to sit down and go over personal goals with his patients. He makes time to answer any questions and never makes you feel like a number.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Sometimes it's hit or miss with the nursing staff. There are days when they answer phones or immediately return phone calls. Other days, the voicemail only picks up and the day is almost over before a call is returned. However, the staff is always friendly and professional during appointments.
How was your experience with Michael Allon?
Dr. Allon is compassionate, patient and gentle towards his patients. He is extremely straightforward but in a gentle and stern manner. Dr. Allon has always been thorough and sympathetic towards infertility issues.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Allon?
Take something to write with because there's no spoon-feeding with Dr. Allon. He gives you all the needed information at one time so there's no surprises.
Describe the protocols Michael Allon used in your cycles and their degree of success.
So far, we have only done a cycle of clomid to go in and look at the number of eggs produced. Dr. Allon determined that I had PCOS and recommended a hysteroscopy. It's still fairly early to speak about the results produced but I'm confident in Dr. Allon's plan towards pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Allon.
We paid for the consultation and blood work that had to be completed. We have purchased clomid through a local pharmacy and are taking the recommended fertility vitamins from the clinic. We have recently been billed for the hysteroscopy as well.
