Describe your experience with University Reproductive Associates (New Jersey Medical School).
I have always felt well taken care of and comfortable. I have been there almost two years so at this point I am very familiar with everyone. The billing department, although they are pretty strict about payments being due, we’re very compassionate of our situation and helpful.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
All of our questions and concerns have been answered, especially by my nurse. Also, during our failures, my doctor has personally called me.
Describe your experience with your nurse.

How was your experience with Peter McGovern?
Although we have yet to have a success, i feel that all my questions and concerns were answered, as well as all the risks explained well. I also feel that we weren’t pressured into doing anything. I feel in my case, my doctor has been thorough and has ease my concerns with procedures.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Peter McGovern?
Describe the protocols Peter McGovern used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have done 3 iui’s and 3 transfers from 1 ivf retrieval. My doctor recommended pga testing from the beginning but we decided against it. Had I done it, I would have found out only 1/6 embroyo were good and would have saved myself the heartache of miscarriage and failed transfer. When I hyperstimulated, my doctor was very proactive with helping me get past it. I am about to go through my second ivf retrieval and I am now on Metformin to help with my hyperstimulation and also will be going through an era to determine if my transfer needs to be done earlier or later. Also, my doctor did half icsi and half ivf due to my husband being slightly below normal motility.

Well oiled machine but wait could be long depending on the day
