Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
The clinics facility was old and outdated. The lab wasn’t air quality controlled. The staff was overworked and therefore long wait times in the office and Waiting for results. During an emergency no one called me

She never remembered who I was in seeing her for 2 years. They were always late, didn’t apologize for losing my embryo or accidentally giving my Demerol.

The original 2 nurses were kind and knowledgeable. They both left while I was there and a new Nurse started who was unqualified.

How was your experience with Janelle Dorsett?
Her bedside manner wasn’t very warm. They were so busy that the care suffered. I was accidentally given Demerol when they thought they were just cleaning my IV with saline. One of my embryos was “lost.”
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett?
Do your research. Go somewhere else.
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was on a very generic IVF protocol my first cycle which worked fairly well. Of the 4 embryos three were transferred at 2 different times. The first two resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Then we did miscarriage bloodwork. I wish we’d done that before the cycles. My second IVF protocol was changed (meds were increased) which didn’t result in more Follicles but she did retrieve them after only 5 days of stims. The result was only 2 embryos and after a fresh transfer, negative pregnancy test. She also did not give any reason that she was switching from frozen or fresh transfers after we asked.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
A very very long wait time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett.
Approximately $15,000 per IVF cycle
