Describe your experience with Northeast Ohio Fertility Center.
Strengths are everyone is on the same page and are Cheering for you. They are supportive and experienced. It's not really a weakness but they teach medical students which can sometimes be a little uncomfortable.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Everyone knows my name and my husbands name. Dr. Spirtos jokes around with us with proper timing. He asks lots of questions and gives us lots of information. He spends time with us - as much as we need.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are great. They check in on me at every visit. They are knowledgeable and are very familiar with Dr. Spirtos' protocols.
How was your experience with Nicholas Spirtos?
He is a straight shooter. He is not going to tell you what you want to hear. He is going to tell you the truth. He is very knowledgeable and through. He makes his decisions based on the progress of your specific cycle. He is confident.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nicholas Spirtos?
He does have a sense of humor but he is a no BS type of Doctor.
Describe the protocols Nicholas Spirtos used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have tried other things before but Dr. Spirtos believed the previous doctors did not push my cycle enough. He used Lupron first. Then we began gonal-f. We had to increase that after nothing was happening on the first ultrasound. We used ovidrel to trigger. Them egg retrieval. 5 days later we completed embryo transfer with using progesterone in oil and endometrin suppositories.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Some waits were longer than others but for the most part we were in and out.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nicholas Spirtos.
