They [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] underestimated the total cost, even with high end of their initial quote for 2 egg retrieval. We ended up spending double what we anticipated. Not many long term financing options available that we qualified for and we paid entirely cash because our insurance didn't cover any fertility treatment....Great communication via phone and email and in person.

They underestimated the total cost, even with high end of their initial quote for 2 egg retrieval. We ended up spending double what we anticipated. Not many long term financing options available that we qualified for and we paid entirely cash because our insurance didn't cover any fertility treatment.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Great bedside manner, personally called us himself with results, personally e-mailed responses to questions and concerns during IVF cycle
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Great communication via phone and email and in person. Available and responsive to my questions.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand?
Dr. Daneshmand was very kind with great bedside manner, genuinely compassionate. My only complaint was feeling deceived with total cost. We ended up spending almost double of the high end estimate we were given at our consultation. Also, Dr. Daneshmand was out of town the day of or scheduled embryo transfer. He gave me the option of postponing one month (more costs for additional meds) or proceeding with his partner, Dr. Bruce Shapiro doing transfer. We let Shapiro do transfer and it was successful!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand?
Be prepared financially to spend more than is initially estimated.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IVF, 2 egg retrieval cycles, one frozen embryo transfer. Meds included Follistim, Menopur, HGH trigger shot, Estradiol, hormone patches, and others I can't recall. Transferred one 5 day blastocyst embryo and first transfer was successful!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Said Daneshmand.
I can't remember specifics but total cost for 2 IVF egg retrieval cycles with donor sperm and one frozen embryo transfer were about $50,000

The clinic [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] itself is warm and inviting. It's not large and cold feeling. There are lots of people around and they are always smiling and say hi, even if they don't know me. Comfort is such a huge factor when you are undergoing this kind of very personal treatment and I felt very much at ease....I have only had a few preliminary tests and procedures. An ultrasound and blood work. Everything was normally priced within the range of other clinics offering the same services.

Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
The clinic itself is warm and inviting. It's not large and cold feeling. There are lots of people around and they are always smiling and say hi, even if they don't know me. Comfort is such a huge factor when you are undergoing this kind of very personal treatment and I felt very much at ease.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I personally vetted numerous doctors and he has the best bed side manner of any doctor I interviewed. He knew my name and remembered me and was always caring, yet realistic about the treatment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I've been to the clinic a few times and they are so warm and nice. I have mostly just seen the physicians there, though. I have had little interaction with the nursing staff, but it has been positive.
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand?
Very open and honest. Given my age, honesty was a huge factor for me. He clearly explained the processes and showed a lot of compassion. I am still early on in treatment, but very impressed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand?
He will be very thorough but come with questions. And do not be afraid to ask questions - even if you feel they are hard or embarrassing.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Again, I am still very early on in the process. But my age is the factor here and so we are basing treatment on that.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Said Daneshmand.
I have only had a few preliminary tests and procedures. An ultrasound and blood work. Everything was normally priced within the range of other clinics offering the same services.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
At times, we felt like there were too many patients being treated at one time. The front desk would cross wires with the billing dept., who would cross wires with our IVF consultant, specialty pharmacy, etc. And as the years went on, there were many times that we wouldn't receive information until we asked specifically for it. As opposed to being offered the information- what if we didn't know to ask?
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nurses are all very friendly and kind, and maintain a positive atmosphere at the office and during procedures. However- We found out about our miscarriage while in the office, and I definitely think the nurses could have handled that better. The 2 nurses left the Ultrasound wand inserted and left the room to go find Dr D when they coudn't find a heartbeat. My husband and I had to wait in the exam room for a few minutes not knowing what was going on with the wand in me! All alone! It was awful.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Said Daneshmand?
Above all else- I trust Dr D. I trust that he will be honest and candid with us, but at the same time maintain a positive atmosphere. I appreciate that.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand?
Dr. D. truly wants all of his patients to have success, and as a patient you can feel that; feel that he cares about you and your partner and wants the best for you.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They seemed genuinely interested in you getting pregnant. They wanted to help.
How was your experience with Bruce Shapiro?
I like that he has a giant ego. He told me I'll tell you if you will get pregnant. If I say you won't then you should move on. We rarely saw him, though, even when we were told we would likely miscarry the baby because of an sch. There was no relationship with him. We were also really annoyed that the massively expensive prices got even more expensive the second round. However, they had all new furniture. I liked that he got me pregnant. He knows what he is doing. He is not a personable person. But he gets the job done and that is all I cared about.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bruce Shapiro?
Don't expect warm and fuzziness. But do expect to get all the information you need and to know that you can trust what he says.

I owe him more than I could ever think to
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Said Daneshmand?
Be patient. The results may not always be what YOU want, but he will make sure you get the family you want.
Describe the protocols Said Daneshmand used in your cycles and their degree of success.
After 2 natural miscarriages, we were put in a variety of protocols (mainly antagonist) for egg retrieval preparation. I was on Gonal F, Menopur, and various other medications through your journey for retrieval. I was on lupron for my FETs and birth control to regulate cycle timing.

During the cycle the nurse [at Fertility Center of Las Vegas] called my work phone and left a message about changing my meds. My voice mail clearly stated I was out of the office for a few days and she didn't bother to call my cell. My cell phone was my primary contact phone number.... Very clinical. Staff and doctor were not personable. When we experienced a failed IVF cycle I felt like it was handled poorly. Very cut and dry with no compassion.

How was your experience with Bruce Shapiro?
Very clinical and proud of his credentials. He liked to brag about his credentials a lot. I had to pull information out of him about the treatment and what to expect. Between our first IVF cycle that resulted in the birth of our son and our second failed cycle, Dr. Shapiro completely changed our "chances of conceiving naturally." The first time (when we had insurance) there was "no hope" and the second time (no insurance) he said we actually weren't that hopeless. I felt taken advantage of the second time around.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bruce Shapiro?
Ask lots of questions and get a second opinion.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bruce Shapiro.
Our health insurance covered about 80% of the cost.
