During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Pinto truly cares, and explains everything in detail, without sugar-coating, but also with heart. The clinic is busy but the staff is kind and gets to know you. Dr. Pinto will spend time making sure everything is correct. When we discovered an unexpected issue right before a planned IVF cycle, he immediately fit me in for surgery three days later. I trust him completely.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?

How was your experience with Anil Pinto?
Dr. Pinto is completely committed to your care. He has a big personality and is quirky, but I find this endearing and genuine. He is extremely ethical in his work, and keeps costs as low as possible. He will call at 8pm if needed to give feedback about labs or next steps, and told me to call him with any questions. I truly appreciate that he will tell me the truth and talk through the issues to create the best, most informed, treatment plan. He is up to date on all research and incorporates this with clear explanation.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anil Pinto?
Ask every question you need to know. He may "seem" rushed, but is just high energy and efficient, and will absolutely sit with you and answer every question.
Describe the protocols Anil Pinto used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My egg retrieval/freezing was four years ago, so unfortunately I don't remember the details for medications. I had one stimulation trial that had to be cancelled due to few eggs, but the second trial was very successful. I am about to start my first FET cycle.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Anil Pinto.
My insurance covers labs, sonos, etc. For egg freezing (one cancelled cycle, one successful cycle), approximately $8K. For upcoming IVF (including my choice to do more expensive PGS), approximately $12-13K
