Boston IVF the Arizona center was fantastic! We loved everything about our experience with them. The only negative I can think of is that the phlebotomist they contracted with for the blood draws (I think her name was Natalie or Natalia) really sucked at drawing blood!...Our total IVF cost was around $13000. I believe $7000ish of that covered the IVF process itself, $3000 or so paid for PGS,...The nurses were super compassionate, caring, and organized. We really appreciated their help.

Describe your experience with Boston IVF The Arizona Center.
Boston IVF the Arizona center was fantastic! We loved everything about our experience with them. The only negative I can think of is that the phlebotomist they contracted with for the blood draws (I think her name was Natalie or Natalia) really sucked at drawing blood! She always stuck me with the needle and then dug around under my skin to find the vein. It hurt so much once I about felt like passing out, and my arm from my elbow to wrist felt painful and tingly for the rest of the day. I know it was a problem with her and not just that I have bad veins or something because one day after having my blood drawn at Boston IVF the Arizona center they sent me to a lab to get some other tests done and that phlebotomist had absolutely no problem finding my vein on the first poke quickly and painlessly. But other than that there is nothing I would have changed about our experience with Boston IVF and an incompetent phlebotomist was a small price to pay for a treatment that has resulted in me being 22 weeks pregnant with our sweet baby girl today! :)
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt like he truly cared about us and wanted to do everything possible to help us find the solution to create our family as quickly as possible while spending as little money as possible.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nurses were super compassionate, caring, and organized. We really appreciated their help.
How was your experience with Jesse Hade?
We liked that Dr. Hade was straightforward with us. He looked at all our history and expressed the things that concerned him that could be causing our infertility. He was realistic about our chances of success with IVF and gave his recommendations about how to go about the IVF process in a way that would maximize our chances for success and increase our odds of having a successful, safe pregnancy and birth while avoiding unnecessary risks and expending as little of our precious time and money throughout the process as possible. He was caring and sympathetic without sugar coating our chances or downplaying our obstacles to success. We felt that the treatment plan he proposed was wise and efficient and it seemed like he considered all the different angles of our situation and took everything into account. We truly feel that Dr. Hade's brilliant experience and expertise were the biggest factors behind our IVF treatment being successful on the first try and we are so grateful that he was our doctor! I'm 22 weeks pregnant with our baby girl now and can't wait to someday introduce her to the man who made it possible for her to come into our family. :) We'll definitely recommend him to others and we plan to come back to him someday when we're ready to use our remaining frozen embryos to add more children to our family.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jesse Hade?
He is a little bit more on the blunt side but don't let that dissuade you and don't assume that just because he's a little blunt he doesn't care. We personally really liked his straightforwardness because we were tired of doctors telling us to just relax and give it more time and keep trying things that weren't working. So when he expressed his concern that there must be something wrong preventing us from getting pregnant if I was only 25 and my husband's sperm analysis was perfectly healthy yet I had never gotten pregnant in 3 years of trying with several medicated cycles, we felt relieved and validated that finally a doctor was as concerned as we were. I can see where to some people he could seem a tiny bit blunt or brusque on the first impression, but we didn't mind that because we could tell he really knew his stuff and wanted to do everything in his power to help us even if his manner seemed slightly blunt when discussing our past problems.
Describe the protocols Jesse Hade used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For us our doctor's recommendation was to do injections, then egg retrieval & sperm sample, then fertilization with ICSI, monitor embryo progress and then freeze all remaining embryos and have PGS done to determine which embryos were genetically healthy, then choose one embryo to transfer via FET. Part of the rationale for doing an FET and not a fresh transfer was to give my uterus time to rest and normalize after all the stims and to have time to do a hysteroscopy to remove any polyps/uterine fibroids, and in order to do PGS to maximize our chances of transferring a healthy embryo that would implant and result in a healthy pregnancy and ultimately live birth.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jesse Hade.
Our total IVF cost was around $13000. I believe $7000ish of that covered the IVF process itself, $3000 or so paid for PGS, and the other $3000 covered medications which we paid to the pharmacy rather than our clinic.

Describe your experience with Boston IVF The Arizona Center.
The clinic is good at getting you in quickly and the personnel are very friendly. The billing department is the clinics biggest weakness. They are not good at getting back to you in a timely manner. Also when they send you paperwork they don't tell you it needs to be submitted immediately and expect you to have it done within hours.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Human-they used my name and made sure I understood every aspect of the treatment. They also answered my questions in a timely manner. Number-billing wasn't very willing to answer questions and they were difficult to get ahold of.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Kristen was good at getting back to my promptly. She was able to answer my questions immediately and if she didn't have an answer she was always able to find the answer in a timely fashion. Kristen was very helpful with getting my prescriptions called in and ready for me. The rest of the nursing staff was good as well but not all of them were as friendly as Kristen.
How was your experience with Jesse Hade?
Dr. Hade did a thorough job trying to determine exactly what was going on when I first went to him as a patient. I felt that he did very good job of explaining the risks due to my condition as well as my odds. He was also open to moving forward with my preference of treatment even though they were not his typical course of treatment for other patients. I appreciated that he was willing to listen to my needs. Although, I feel he could be a bit more personable in terms of emotionally. He's not exactly cold but he doesn't seem to show much emotion.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jesse Hade?
Just because you don't have success on the first or even second try don't give up.
Describe the protocols Jesse Hade used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Dr. Hade first tried an unmedicated IUI cycle. At my request, we then proceeded with two medicated IUI cycles. He was willing to continue with one more IUI cycle but also suggested moving forward with IVF. At my request we went ahead and stopped the IUI cycles to proceed with an IVF cycle which we are currently in the process of doing.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jesse Hade.
Initial visit was a $30 co-pay. Each IUI cycle was $750 plus co-pays for each visit. The IVF cycle with PGS in $10,500 plus co-pays for each visit.

Describe your experience with Boston IVF The Arizona Center.
Overall Dr.Hade is very knowledgeable, forth coming, and thorough. I trusted Dr.Hades opinion and judgement a lot. I feel the nursing staff could use more training and be more organized, but in the end I got my baby and to me the dr is who matters the most.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt that the treatment itself was good but I also felt like after I was pregnant and wanted to continue treatment with my OB as opposed to seeing Dr.Hade at the clinic, due to cost, that he didn’t care anymore about me as a patient. And example of one reason was he had me stop taking PIO injections at 6 weeks, which is very early

How was your experience with Jesse Hade?
I feel that Dr.Hade is a very food fertility Doctor and is very thorough. He answers all questions in detail and is blunt and to the point, never beating around the bush. He makes sure that all issues are resolved and makes sure to have as little inconveniences as possible. I love that he was willing to do a natural FET when I inquired about it.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jesse Hade?
Write down all of your questions and concerns and don’t be afraid to ask him anything.
Describe the protocols Jesse Hade used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We have male factor infertility, for stim I used low dose HCG, 175 follistim, and ganirelix. I produced 28 eggs, 14 mature, and 9 fertilized. Of the 9 3 embryos made it to freeze. For my FET we did a natural cycle with HCG trigger and Progesterone injections. We transferred 2 embryos and now have a beautiful baby boy.

I felt like a human, but also felt a little like all the fertility clinics have treated us as cattle.. all of us scheduled stims, scheduled retrievals at the same time....Nursing staff was great!...Strength = great staff Weakness = billing dept had some hurdles.... His nurses are great too, they answer all questions....Dr Hades weakness would be that he doesn't explain too much..very quick and brief meetings during ultra sounds. Short and simple I suppose.

  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Jesse Hade?
Dr Hades strength were that he was very thorough and honest and upfront. At first I thought he was kind of neutral and bland, but after other reviews from other clinics, I've come to appreciate his approach. Other Drs gave out a lot of false hope and empty optimism. Dr Hades weakness would be that he doesn't explain too much..very quick and brief meetings during ultra sounds. Short and simple I suppose.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jesse Hade?
Ask questions, have them available with you. His nurses are great too, they answer all questions.
Describe the protocols Jesse Hade used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't recall. A month of stims, a couple months of birth control and transferred 1 embryo. Currently pregnant
