How was your experience with Melissa Yates at Advanced Reproductive Specialists?
I believe Dr Yates is very compassionate. She spoke to me at every single appointment and I did not feel like just a number. The only thing is that I feel she may be less experienced than other fertility clinics.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Melissa Yates at Advanced Reproductive Specialists?
Do research and ask a lot of questions. She will make the time to speak to you. I was not happy with my outcome, but that is because none of my embryos made it past day 5. One of the other things I was also not quite happy with is that we went ahead with the endometriosis surgery and my new Dr believes that the risks may not have been worth it because there is the potential that my fimbria were damaged.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Melissa Yates at Advanced Reproductive Specialists?
I felt like a human with Dr Yates and her staff. It was a smaller office so you got to know the Dr, nurses, coordinators, and front desk staff quite well.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Specialists. (Assigned nurse: Courtney)
The nurse was always very pleasant and compassionate. She must have been new because often times Dr Yates would come in to show her how to do the ultrasound and measure the follicles growth.
Describe your experience with Advanced Reproductive Specialists.
Everyone at the clinic was very nice. They will all listen to your concerns and speak to you like a real person and not a number, however they seem to be new at this. I would say if you are looking for a Dr with more experience you may want to look elsewhere.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Melissa Yates at Advanced Reproductive Specialists.
I did not have any insurance coverage so i believe the entire cost with medications for 1 round of IVF was $19000
