During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hugh Melnick at Advanced Fertility Services?
Most of my treatment was done after my I had tragic circumstances in 2016 I did Major Surgery for fibroids May 27, 2016. May 28, 2016 my Husband Cris took me home, May 29, 2016 my Husband felt sick and was rushed to Brookdale Hospital where he passed away the next day May 30, 2016. Following this my Dad passed September 11, 2016. While my embryos were considered excellent they did not implant. He was never able to confirm why. I think Dr. Melnick is resilient, and determined to satisfy his patients. I would hope he will try all the new techniques now available. I have one last chance of IVF with my Husband sperms but I am unable to afford it. I am sure he will continue to be pleasant and professional.
