Describe your experience with Buffalo Infertility and IVF Associates.
I would say the strengths are their approach, they have a good clinical approach. I wish there was more in-depth talk about male factor and that the embryology team would speak with you, at least once. IT would be helpful to know what is going on with your embryos. Doctors are great, but embryology could be better.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
She is very good with patients, she listens and answers your questions. She is a very thoughtful person, and answers very politically correct, but in a good way.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are good, they hold a support group and help answer all the questions you have. Only one time did I feel like a burden, but just asked to speak to another nurse.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
How was your experience with Krystene DiPaola?
She is very kind and makes you feel like you are the only one she is speaking with at the moment. She is very hands one, but during quick appointments, she trying to move you out quickly. She shows compassion in hard times, and joy when things are going well. She is overall a really good doctor and thinks outside the box if needed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Krystene DiPaola?
Make sure to have all of your questions ready, and ask her to repeat if you need.
Describe the protocols Krystene DiPaola used in your cycles and their degree of success.
She used 2 different protocols on me. One with just gonal f and cetrotide and the other long lupron and low dose hcg. Overall, we did not yield as many embryos as we both had hoped for.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Krystene DiPaola.
They have a 3 tier package. 1st IVF = $4,000 2nd IVF = $3,500 3rd + IVF = $3,000 It is a great price, as all IVF is expensive.
