Describe your experience with North Shore Fertility.
They are smart, caring, and really give you special attention. They are always available and their response time is so much quicker than anyone else I tried to meet with for consultations. Plus they do weekend IVF/IUI appointments!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Anne makes me feel safe, cared for, and respected. She validates my concerns and gives me hope and encouragement when I am struggling to find it.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Jennifer is thoughtful, caring, funny, and consistent. She is always available to communicate with, she explains everything well, and is always on top of everything.
How was your experience with Anne Borkowski?
Dr Anne is the perfect fit for me , I both trust her medical knowledge and she truly makes you feel like you are her only patient. She is ALWAYS available on the phone , she talked to me twice when she was on vacation and when I was sick after a retrieval she checked in with me 2-3 times a day. She's truly wonderful.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anne Borkowski?
Just be honest and open with her about everything and always ask the question.
Describe the protocols Anne Borkowski used in your cycles and their degree of success.
1st retrieval- 600 IU gonal F, ganirelex 25 6 eggs , 3 day 3 embryos with slight hyperstim so had to do frozen cycle instead. 0/3 embryos implanted. No PGs testing due to cost. 2nd stim in progress- 300IU gonal f and later increased to 450, menopur 150, ganirelex 150
Describe the costs associated with your care under Anne Borkowski.
Dr Anne was the only doctor I met with who suggested we try to bill insurance just to see if they would cover it..and they did. The other two clinics I interviewed with said I would not be eligible and they would not submit to insurance. My only costs were for copay and medicine, totaling under $500
