Describe your experience with Naval Medical Center.
The clinic is great and very easy to find. Sometimes parking is very hard to find. I suggest that if you're new patient, it is best to come there early to give yourself time to find parking. Sometimes there's traffic at the gate to get in. Afternoon appointments are better because there's plenty of parking around that time.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He's a great doctor and he works around my schedule so I don't miss work or miss an important event.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They're all great and they know my name since they see me often. They always great you with a smile.
How was your experience with Larry Laufer?
He's a great doctor, funny, and I had a great experience. I like the fact that he will work with your schedule so you don't miss a work or an important event. If I have questions about anything, he will answer it.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Laufer?
Ask questions if you want to know your E2 level, follicles sizes, etc.
Describe the protocols Larry Laufer used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For IUI I've done gonal f and ovidrel. Most of the time I have to increase and sometimes decrease. I responded great but did not get pregnant. For my 1st IVF cycle, I was on antagonist protocol and had to take gonal f, menopur, ganirelix and ovidrel then patches and progesterone. Dr. Laufer did the retrieval and retrieved 17 eggs, 10 fertilized, got 5 embryos of day 5/day 6. The first transfer (different doctor transferred the embryo), I got positive pregnancy but ended as a chemical pregnancy. For my FET (#2,#3,#4) I used patches and progesterone, but did not get pregnant.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Larry Laufer.
IUI procedure and meds were free.
IVF was not free and we had to pay to the one they had contract with but meds were free.
