Describe your experience with Fertility Partnership.
Super busy. Plan to wait. Try to not have your first appointments on Mondays.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
He was very set on facts. Your weight is this. You have this condition. You need to be treated for this to get that outcome. But he was also very adamant he understand your personality. If he ever got a "she's crazy" vibe, he would continue discussions until he felt either he knew you better or would refer you to a different Doctor.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Partnership.
They're very busy, but they seem to know what they're doing.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Partnership?
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
He is rough with the ultrasound probe. He is very candid. He is very crass. He is obviously knowledgeable, but he comes off more casual to make you more comfortable. Some people would be bothered by the profanity, but I'm not one. He edged the line of innapropriate but never crossed it. I felt very comfortable in his care. He went above and beyond to ensure my cycle needs were met (including performing an IUI on a holiday, because that's where my cycle fell).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Be prepared for an non-traditional clinic experience from his personality to the manner in which questions are asked. His patients are often overbooked, so wait time was up to 3 hours for some appointments.
Describe the protocols David Simckes used in your cycles at Fertility Partnership and their degree of success.
He insisted on metformin, 1000 mg 2x per day, but not the extended release. I did 1 round of clomid. 2 rounds of clomid mixed with bravelle. I ended up on an antagonistic IVF cycle, to better compliment my PCOS. He was adamant about progesterone gel after IUI and PIO Injections with transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Simckes at Fertility Partnership.
The billing moved from in house to 3rd party mid cycle. I had to battle that transition. In house had a lot of issues clearly conveying cost. 3rd party was a medical billing company.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Very hands on and personable. He acknowledged the fact that I had done a lot of research. Was upfront with statistics but didn’t refuse treatment. He has a quirky personality so if you are easily offended you might feel offended. But he is brilliant and so kind.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Partnership. (Assigned nurse: Shawnee Hurt)
Overall staff is great. My coordinator was also very hands on and gave suggestions that resulted in succe. She had a bit of an attitude but her suggestions got results. She is no longer at this clinic but is working elsewhere as a fertility coordinator.
How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Wonderful experience with this doctor. He isn’t afraid to think outside of the box and this is the reason I have my miracle baby. Money wasn’t an issue but he keeps costs down as well. Comfortable environment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
If you are looking for a brilliant doctor who is totally hands on and will get results but has a colorful personality and obviously loves his job then Dr. Simckes is for you.
Describe the protocols David Simckes used in your cycles at Fertility Partnership and their degree of success.
I can’t rember the exact protocol but I know that between my first and second cycles it was tweaked slightly. I also had surgery between the two protocols. Dr. Simckes really studied my history and my specific case to make decisions for my treatment. I had a chemical pregnancy on my first cycle with him and had a healthy Singleton birth with the second cycle. Unfortunately I never had anything to freeze.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Simckes at Fertility Partnership.
Lowest cost in our area but that did not factor into our reason for there.
Describe David Simckes's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Partnership.
I always transferred multiple embryos due to my advanced maternal age and the fact that my egg quality was low.

Describe your experience with Fertility Partnership.
Fertility Partnership's clinic is a long a major highway in St. Peter's. There is easy access. It is not in a big building and so access is phenomenal. It is clean and modern looking.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
He took his time with us, he used humor to calm us down He asked questions about who we were and we felt like he actually cared.

What specific things went wrong at Fertility Partnership?
  • Failed to call with results
How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
The doctor made us feel very cared for. He explained thoroughly and we felt that his knowledge base was excellent. The worst thing I can say is that he had a tendency to run late but by the time he was done with us We always felt it was worth the wait
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Fertility Partnership is the place to go if you want to be treated with compassion and expertise. You might have to be a bit forgiving about lateness but that's not every visit
Describe the protocols David Simckes used in your cycles at Fertility Partnership and their degree of success.
After failed iuis The doctor recommended IVF as the next course of action. My wife got birth-control pills, gave her and self injections for approximately 10 days and then she underwent the retrieval of the eggs I remember she used two kinds of stimulating drugs, one in the morning and one in the evening. And she got an injection to "ripen" the eggs for retrieval. Not all the eggs were mature but we still managed to get seven good embryos and have five frozen remaining.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
I think by the end of our care there, he knew our story, but then again there are so many people that go there at the beginning he couldn't remember anything about us and we would have to refresh his memory.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Partnership. (Assigned nurse: Shawnie)
The staff seemed to care about my situation, although the nurse did get attitude with me a few times.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Partnership?
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Dr. Simckes is very personable, but he also has poor bedside manner. Crude jokes, etc. Just depends on if you can handle it all. He was also never on time. Like we were the first patient of the day and he was 30 minutes late one time. I also didn't like his answers to my issues (cancelled transfers). The first time he just said to take a few month break before we try again. The next time he told me to go ask a sister to be my gestational carrier (like it would be that easy).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Be prepared to wait....he will never be on time. Also, be wary of his humor and jokes.
Describe the protocols David Simckes used in your cycles at Fertility Partnership and their degree of success.
After the three IUI's didn't work (did natural, and two with meds), we moved on to IVF. His clinic was a batch clinic - so they would do all their IVF retrievals/transfers during one week of the month. So depending on when your cycle is, you will have to be on X amount of BCP's so that you line up with the timetable. For the IVF, we did follistim, menopur and ganirelix with an ovidrel shot. I got OHSS (retrieved 35 eggs) so no fresh transfer. We had issues getting my lining thick enough for a FET so it was cancelled 3 times. Finally did one transfer and it did not work. In the end, he told me that he didn't know what to do to grow my lining and to consider a gestational carrier. I didn't feel like he did any research or reached out to anyone for help.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Partnership.
It was a cattlecall - started at a certain time and you had to get their first if you didn't want to be waiting for a long time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Simckes at Fertility Partnership.
IUI's were covered under insurance. I believe the IVF was $9k, meds were about $3-4k. A FET was $3k.

How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
I thought that he was very very comfortable to talk to and be open with about our situation and he made us feel at ease. He very perfessional yet not stuffy and explain things in terms which we could understand. He never made us feel like there was something wrong with us, which is my struggle personally I felt like I was damaged in some way, but he was very reassuring that all of our concerns were very common and normal for couples dealing with infertility. When he could tell I was getting alittle upset taking about the issue he always tried to lighten the situation with laughter or resurance that it was ok to feel this way.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Be prepared to laugh and feel comfortable about speaking very candid with him. He loves to talk and get to know your personal story so don't hold back.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Dr. Simckes was the first doctor we seen who wasn't all about making money. He was making a living of course but he was offering lower cost treatments. We had lost hope by the time we heard of him but after speaking with him just over the phone we started seeing possibilities again. We knew we had to try once more using him as our doctor. As patients the staff were very kind & knew us individually every time we went in. Our main nurse as well as Dr. Simckes were warm & outgoing. They were people we could see ourselves getting together with outside of the office; people we could have as personal friends.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Partnership. (Assigned nurse: Shawnie)
They were laid back & very involved
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Partnership?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
Towards us, Dr Simckes was always positive & upbeat. He definitely likes to chat with you, tell jokes, & even sing on occasion! He keeps it interesting & fun. He always told us when we should be concerned or if there was no reason to be. And for our case, each time he was completely spot on. I will say since he spends so much time with each patient there were plenty of appointments we waited long periods of time. As a waiting patient it's definitely an inconvience but once it's your turn you appreciate the time he's taking with you.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
You know your body so don't be afraid to ask questions regarding it. With any case gather your own medical information beforehand & discuss alternative treatments/procedures. You are your own advocate.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Simckes at Fertility Partnership?
From my first appointment on I have been in constant contact with Dr. Simckes and his staff. My first appointment Dr. Simckes spent a good 2 hours answering all of my questions. He made sure I was comfortable during all of my tests and even made jokes to ease the awakwardness. He listened to what I was concerned about and taking action on my thoughts. I’m not following a basic protocol and I feel like my treatment is tailored to me.
