Disorganized, but cheaper than any of the other options I found in the area...Doctor [Pierre Asmar]was cheerful but not detail-oriented. Never felt like he really understood/remembered that I was there because I'm a single mother by choice, rather than that I had diagnosed fertility issues...Ask questions and be alert. I learned most of what I needed to know by listening to the conversation between the doctor and the staff and asking for clarification about what they were saying.

Describe your experience with Washington Fertility Center.
Disorganized, but cheaper than any of the other options I found in the area.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The office was odd. It looked like a front for a criminal enterprise - no filing cabinets behind the front desk, no land line, difficulty answering questions without calling the main location, difficulty making appointments (they write my time on a piece of scrap paper and said they'd call me back if it wouldn't work out). Doctor came in and said, cheerfully, "you know the drill!" even though it was my first visit. I eventually figured out they were expecting me to undress for a vaginal ultrasound. Hard to feel either like a number or a human when the whole place just felt disorganized.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Lost appointments
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Pierre Asmar?
Doctor was cheerful but not detail-oriented. Never felt like he really understood/remembered that I was there because I'm a single mother by choice, rather than that I had diagnosed fertility issues.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Pierre Asmar?
Ask questions and be alert. I learned most of what I needed to know by listening to the conversation between the doctor and the staff and asking for clarification about what they were saying.

They [the staff at Washington Fertility Center] were professional and efficient but very human and kind...I don't remember having any problems with this practice. I don't think we ever felt hurried or ignored. I'm sure we would have gone on to the next option after we tried an unsuccessful insemination, but we moved.

How was your experience with Rafat Abbasi?
She was thorough and open. We liked her.We did not work with her for very long because we moved out of the area. She was personable and careful. We trusted her and would have continued with her if we had not moved. I don't remember having any problems with this practice. I don't think we ever felt hurried or ignored. I'm sure we would have gone on to the next option after we tried an unsuccessful insemination, but we moved.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rafat Abbasi?
She seemed very genuine. We had a good experience.
