Very clean, always busy! The front desk clerks [at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando] are very nice but because they are busy all the time they do get behind. There were numerous times we went in for an appointment and waited 15-30 minutes after our appointment time. I would recommend making blood appointments first thing in the morning--you get in and out faster. The phlebotomists are very good with small veins and very nice. The ultrasound techs explain as much as they can during exams to make sure you know how the cycle is going and how big the eggs are.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Jaffe was very personable. She can occasionally use medical terms that if you don't ask for clarification you can leave confused. She will explain procedures and wastes no time getting to the point. If you like a no nonsense Dr. who will advocate for you and offer realistic expectations she is a perfect candidate. If you like someone who will candy coat or stroke your emotional ego she won't be the best fit for you.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Overall the nurses were pleasant. They rushed through the instructions for medication which was confusing. There was confusion about my trigger shot with the nurse that called me but luckily it was clarified before I took it.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Sharon Jaffe?
I enjoyed Dr. Jaffe as a doctor and will return to her when we go for our second. She is a no-nonsense woman who will work hard to get you a baby. If something won't work she will be honest. We wanted to transfer more than one embryo and she was adamant about only doing one due to my age. She was correct and I got pregnant after the first transfer. After getting pregnant she was very understanding of my worries.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sharon Jaffe?
Ask clarification questions if she uses medical terms or medications and you aren't 100% sure what she is talking about.
Describe the protocols Sharon Jaffe used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Due to my PCOS we tried oral medications and I did not get pregnant. We went to do a round of IUI and even though we had him tested before there was male factor infertility which resulted in canceling the cycle. After this we were forced to do IVF because my husband had a failed vasectomy reversal that only worked for a year and a half. The facility only does frozen cycles from what I gathered. The success rate is higher ans we wanted the PGS testing so that is the option we chose. We did follistem,luperon and a trigger for the retrieval. Luperon and progesterone for the transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sharon Jaffe.
Overall the cost for IVF with a 5-day frozen transfer and PGS was less than $20k

The staff is this offices [CRM Orlando] biggest weakness. The only member of their staff who I can give glowing reviews of is their phlebotomist at the Winter Park office. She's amazing and so very patient. The rest of their current staff is not very knowledgeable and seem to be very disorganized. I had to tell the MA that called me when I should have a follow up appointment and if I hadn't insisted on being re scanned for follicle growth we would have missed out on our window and possibly on our sweet baby girl.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He took time to listen to our frustrations regarding previous cycles with another physician. He's very smart, so there are times you can see him focused and analyzing the situation, but I preferred that cerebral side of him to having a doctor who was overly warm and fuzzy and not trying to figure out the problem.

How was your experience with Randall Loy?
What I most appreciated about Dr. Loy was his ability to see past just the right now. If a protocol didn't seem to work he was ready to discuss possible changes the next time to help illicit better results. I had previously had a physician continue the same protocol month after month without any success and it was very frustrating and expensive. Dr. Loy was honest about our results for our last IUI and we were heartbroken to hear that they were not as encouraging as we had hoped, but he encouraged us to go through with the IUI and then we arranged a meeting to discuss how to change things the next time and had a plan all in place. By the grace of God we never had to move onto the "next step" and we now have a healthy baby girl!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randall Loy?
He is straight to the point. Intelligent, but not so much that it impedes his ability to be empathetic. We are very thankful for him!

How was your experience with Randall Loy?
He had a ton of experience, but I felt a bit like just a number at times. He seemed to get irritated when my husband and I started asking so many questions. I had watched some of his YouTube videos just before he walked in one day, and when he started talking, it was word for word from his videos, done without feeling. He has very high ratings, as does the clinic, so we'll see if I get a baby out of this, and after how many tries. I only just completed egg retrieval, so we'll see. If I get a baby out of this, he'll be a god to me.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randall Loy?
Watch his YouTube videos. He had his own channel. There are many, and chances are good they will answer many of your questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randall Loy.
I used Attain, which cost $16,500 for two complete cycles, including 2 egg retrievals and unlimited transfers. The meds eye extra, which I got for around $3,700 thoth winfertility online. My insurance covered office visits, and anesthesia for egg retrieval was $500.

Dr. Loy is compassionate and we felt truly understood our struggles, emotions and concerns. He has great bedside manner, took time to listen while inserting much-needed humor and seemed to care for us deeply.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was always quick to return my phone calls and answer questions.
How was your experience with Randall Loy?
My husband and I highly recommend Dr. Loy and his team. They are incredibly passionate, understanding and supportive. My husband and I had a 2 year struggle with infertility and wish we'd found Dr. Loy sooner. We are now 9 weeks pregnant and will forever be grateful to him for making that happen. He is incredibly intelligent, logical, understanding and has a great bedside manner. He performed surgery on me and several nurses in the hospital said they all fight to be with him in the OR because he's so great. My OB calls Dr. Loy "the King". Check out his You Tube videos for lessons on all things fertility-related. Don't hesitate to make an appointment with him.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randall Loy?
Come prepared with a list of questions and paper/pen to take notes. He is very intelligent and you will later want to remember all that he communicated to you.

How was your experience with Sharon Jaffe?
She has a dry delivery but is very informative and definitely tailored the medication protocol to my particular set of issues. She let us take pictures with her once we conceived and gave us a hug. She was exactly the kind of doctor I needed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sharon Jaffe?
Come with a list of medically pertinent questions and know she does want to get you pregnant. She said it on my first meeting with her in 2014 and was just as happy as us in 2017 when our IVF frozen transfer worked.
Describe the protocols Sharon Jaffe used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I can't remember all my protocols. I had some unique meds she put me on since I had battled pre cancerous uterine cells growing for two years. I know the rest of my protocol was similar to a lot of other women's though.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sharon Jaffe.
Probably around $20,000 with medications and different procedures we had to do to get ready for our first and only FET.

The ones [nurses] assigned to Dr. Jaffe are great. I've had a few other ones that I talked to that were not so much, but maybe they were having a bad day.... She had me use femura for five cycles, since there were supposedly less side affects than clomid, although I did produce eggs and ovulate they all ended in negative pregnancy test. Two of those times I opted for IUI's. Recently I had egg retrieval done for IVF and I used Gonal-F and Cetrotide.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Sharon Jaffe.
With my insurance just to see a specialist is a higher copay. Then for IUI's at the time it was free. And IVF is pretty much out of pocket.

Dr. Patel called me personally when I was having a rough time with a cycle. It made me feel like she was invested in my fertility treatment
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She was very nice especially when delivering bad news. She didn't always have the answers to my questions but was always good about getting the Doctors answers and getting back to me.
How was your experience with Sejal Patel?
Every time I talked to Dr Patel I wanted to hug her. She never made me feel stupid for being upset and always calmly explained anything I needed explaining. She always responded to my questions through the nurses most of the time, but my questions were answered.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sejal Patel?
Come to appointment with questions. Dr Patel will answer anything you need to know, but she doesn't know what you do and do. It know. You have to ask.
Describe the protocols Sejal Patel used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We started with 2 cycles of medicated cycles with letrozle, orebyl trigger and progesterone. Then we moved to iui with the same protocol. Then the third iui we added estradiol. After the third failed iui we decided to take a break from treatment and also to use that opportunity to try to lose weight to improve fertility. We will resume treatment in May 2017, 30 pounds light. We will likely try two more iui before IVF.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sejal Patel.
Monitoring appointments were covered by insurance. Rate for IUIs was approx $500

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He did a good job of sitting down with me and my husband and explained things to us.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Lauren was wonderful! I always felt calm when speaking to her. She was thorough and answered calls and emails timely!
How was your experience with Celso Silva?
Dr. Silva made me feel comfortable wen meeting with him. I didn't feel too rushed. He gave me tissues and time to cry when I became emotional. He did a pretty good job of explaining things. The only thing I didn't appreciate was always hearing about the IVF option. I knew it was an option but I wanted to try other methods first. He did not in any way pressure me to have IVF. However it was usually mentioned as an option in our meetings.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Celso Silva?
Be comfortable to ask as many questions as you want. Seek clarification and understanding regarding any information givento you.
Describe the protocols Celso Silva used in your cycles and their degree of success.
HSG Blood work Semen analysis for husband Prep body/ovaries, etc for IUI Vitamins for husband and I Ultrasounds to check ovaries, etc 1 round of IUI with negative for pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Celso Silva.
Don't remember exactly but I believe it was reasonable. We paid mostly out of pocket.

I would recommend her [Sharon Jaffe of Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando] to anyone and I have. She's very knowledgable and answered all my questions. She completed my surgery and took the time to review the results and next steps....She sat with me and answered all my questions. She took the time to go over everything...If you want someone to sit down and cry with you I don't think she's it. She's straight to the point and wants to get you pregnant. She is compassionate but in her own way. Her job is to give you a baby and that's what she focuses on

Describe the protocols Sharon Jaffe used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Ultimately she tells you the best option for your situation but as the patient and the done paying she leaves it up to you. I had to have surgery. She recommended two options, surgery first or try fertility meds first. I wanted to do the cheaper route however my husband figured it would be a waste of money and to go straight to surgery. We chose that route and then after sat down with her to review our next options, fertility meds, IUI and then IVF if needed
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sharon Jaffe.
My insurance covered a lot of the surgery. Ultrasounds were over $100 each time but they monitor my account with my insurance and I always have credits to pay for things

It was very much a sales pitch. they insisted that they try the "most cost effective solution" first but then later admitted that it almost never works the first or second time and must people have 6 IUIs. We couldn't afford 6 without applying for their financing.

Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando.
Beautiful and clean. World renowned reviews.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
It was all very clinical while I was desperate for answers and a baby.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Much more warmth and compassion but too busy and rushed.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Sharon Jaffe?
It was originally made to sound like I was just "doing it wrong" and I was required to repeat costly tests not covered by insurance when my OBGYN had sent all the previous tests to her office. We knew the issue was low sperm count but I got tested for everything under the sun while my husband was asked for one sample. Afterwards, she made it seem too easy and that I'd be pregnant right away without explaining that it would be months of testing.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sharon Jaffe?
Ask "how long do you anticipate my treatment plan to take?" and go prepaired with facts. They might do good work (it didn't work for me) but it's all a form of sales.
Describe the protocols Sharon Jaffe used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did 1 IUI "blind to see what happens" which was upsetting because it was costly and we had been trying for 4 years at that point and this wasn't explained up front. Again, it was as if we just didn't "get" how to achieve pregnancy. The 2nd IUI consisted of "sperm washing" to ensure viable sperm and the 3rd with sperm washing, drugs to force ovulation (I had no issue ovilating) and at home fertility injections into my belly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sharon Jaffe.
Each IUI cost a minimum of $700 but that is without any drugs, initial testing, or office visits. Over all, after testing, drugs, and our 3 (failed) IUIs; we spend about $4000 before we decided to take a break for treatments.

Very clean, organized, busy clinic [CRM - Orlando]. My only complaint is I went to the Lake Mary office because it is closer and more convenient for me but they don't always do ultrasounds and procedures there so I had to go to the Orlando office a lot...I dealt with different nurses but all seemed very nice and always returned my calls within the same day with any questions I had...IUI was $450, ultrasounds $225 and progesterone was $75, estrogen checks were $125

How was your experience with Albert Asante?
Although my first IUI was not successful, I still love Dr. Asante and how he makes me feel as a patient. He is kind and very knowledgeable. He is positive about treatment but also realistic about what steps may need to be taken.
Describe the protocols Albert Asante used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Started with lab work for me to determine my hormones and amh levels, then checked my ovaries for cysts. I started clomid cycle day 3, had a follicle scan cycle day 12 and scheduled the IUI for 2 days later.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Albert Asante.
IUI was $450, ultrasounds $225 and progesterone was $75, estrogen checks were $125
