CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
They always answer the phone! IF there is an issue with anyone in the clinic, tell your doctor and they will totally address it- potentially even in front of you. Appointment wait time can be extremely slow, but the care is great. They're open most Saturdays too.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is not a naturally warm or friendly person. He is extremely task and detail driven and focused on what he's doing. However, in the 1.5 years we got treatment with him, we learned that under that analytical exterior is a person who actually cares about his patients. He apologized for not being there for our miscarriage (it happened over Christmas- he was out of town- his colleague worked with us), and treated me with kindness, empathy, and respect.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: We saw them for a couple years, so we had two that we worked with: Brandy and Tiecha)
Everyone that I worked with was always friendly and helpful. The financial advisor was also helpful. The front desk always answers the phone!! Our nurse was really helpful and punctual with calendars most of the time.
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is not warm or fuzzy. He's analytical and detail and task oriented. He is super focused. Beneath all of that he does really care about the successes of his patients. He always explained everything to me clearly and apologized and (tried to) show empathy when things didn't go well.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Have patience for his mannerisms. I truly think that human emotions are not his strong suit but he does care.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
We did an egg retrieval in 2016. From what I remember, I did birth control, then Follistem and Menopur shots every day and something else that I can't remember. We triggered with Lupron and had success- 26 eggs, 12 embryos. We took a break to prevent OHSS and then transferred two embryos (our request) after birth control, estrogen, and progesterone. I got pregnant and miscarried twins at 6 weeks. I had a massive SCH and no other apparent reason for miscarrying. I had a D & C. We took a break, then transferred two more embryos with the same previous protocol. I got pregnant with twins- one twin was viable, the other wasn't, and gave birth to my daughter 9 months later.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
IVF, one cycle: 15,000 or so (don't totally remember) Meds: 5,000 Transfer (with meds): 5,500
Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Our doctor advised us of the risks of transferring two versus one but ultimately left the decision to us.

I feel everything is going well with this clinic [Fertility Specialists of Texas]. Everyone is pretty attentive and is there for any questions or concerns.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein has been nothing but great through out this whole process. I was referred to him by a friend who was a previous patient of his. His bedside manner is wonderful, he goes into everything in detail, listens to all your questions and concerns. I'm very pleased with choosing him as my RE.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Amanda)
All the nurses have been wonderful. But I do feel Amanda could be a little more communicative. When I can't speak to her I talk to Heidi, she's been great.
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I've had several miscarriages, like more than 5 with two tubal removals (hence why I have to do IVF) as well, as a premature labor resulting in birth and death of our daughter all between 2006 - 2014. Dr. Goldstein has shown concern as to why I've had reoccurring miscarriages. He is the ONLY Dr to actually take the time to try and figure out why and seen I had uterine polyps/fibroids and removed them. No other Dr has ever even mentioned those or that, that could be a possibility as to why I was having multiple losses. That meant so much to me and I couldn't thank him enough to take the time and actually care about my well being and not just rush into doing IVF.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Easier said than done, but don't be scared or nervous. He truly has your well being at heart.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
I have not started my stims yet. I will start those Friday morning 2.8.19. But as of right now my protocol is to start menopur in the early a.m at 75iu and Follistim in the evening at 225 I believe.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The person who checks you in is generally very friendly and polite, although they have a new person who was not as friendly. The billing staff is AWFUL and very rude and condescending. The rest of the staff varies. For as stressful as everything is, you'd think that customer service would be a priority, but it really isn't. They ridicule patients, insult them, talk down to them. It's frustrating and depressing and not helpful at all. The sonogram nurse is great. The phlebotomist is great. Several of the nurses are very friendly and helpful. But the overall experience is a nightmare.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein met with myself and my partner on my first visit, and the meeting was amazingly fast. He didn't explain anything. He asked a couple of questions, looked at the surveys we had filled out before coming in, and said he recommended we try IVF after only a few minutes with him. We tried asking questions but he wouldn't answer. He said we could try IUI if IVF was too expensive. Said we needed to do some tests, and then the meeting ended. No information! No questions answered. And all subsequent interactions were similar. He would tell his nurse to answer our questions, but she didn't know the information. It was an awful experience.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff shunts you off to someone else. They ignore your questions or act put out if they get hard pressed to actually answer. They treat patients with condescension and insult them for the very reason they are at the clinic. It's really depressing. The office staff was worse...
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I think I covered a lot of this in the question regarding why I felt like a number. He does not provide any information at all. He doesn't answer questions. He is difficult to even meet with, and when you can schedule a meeting, it lasts for less than 15 minutes and he directs you to talk to his nurse instead. The one test he performed on me was botched, stupidly painful, and he couldn't even interpret the results. He kept changing his mind on what the results might could mean.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Don't go! Don't see him!
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
He started off using a combination of pills and injections, on really low dosages. He upped the dosages throughout the first cycle but never got to where it needed to be. On the second cycle, he started out with high dosages and the result was a cancelled cycle.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The IUI cycles cost $1300 plus the additional expenses of medication (which ranged about $2500 per cycle)

Was left a message [by Fertility Specialists of Texas] on a Sunday that my embryo died and that it was on me to make a follow-up appointment...Brandy [nurse] was a terrible communicator. When doing the all-important every-other-day ultrasounds, couldn't consistently get a view of both ovaries. Led to a lot of confusion around what results to expect come retrieval time. Felt like nursing staff could have been more compassionate, overall.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
They have a quality facility, and good SART rates for the easy stuff - younger mothers with unexplained infertility. If you're local and young, this is a great choice. I also understand that they have an in-house fresh donor egg program. If you're looking for this option, that's a nice offering over dealing with outside agencies.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Very rarely, during my cycle, was Dr. Chilvers available. I saw only her staff 90% of the time. I'd get whichever doctor was on call on Saturdays. Her nurse, Brandy, was belligerent and would not explain things in ways that I could understand. Dr. Chilvers often provided evasive answers.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Brandy)
I think, overall, they tried hard. I believe they meant well. There was ONE lady there who had been there over 14 years, assigned to Dr. Goldstein - she was a gem. The rest of them.... Brandy was a terrible communicator. When doing the all-important every-other-day ultrasounds, couldn't consistently get a view of both ovaries. Led to a lot of confusion around what results to expect come retrieval time. Felt like nursing staff could have been more compassionate, overall.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Lost results
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I don't think Dr. Chilvers is suited to this particular sector of the profession. She has other skills, of course, and I think she is/would be a great OB/GYN, but became an RE due to financial reasons. She has never been in the chair herself, so she has no great personal belief in the outcomes. And for someone over 40, she had 0 ability to customize a treatment plan that would provide the best chance of a positive outcome. Other clinics will provide a list of supplements including DHEA, which has shown positive scientific results in treatment of AMA patients. Dr. Chilvers put me on a standard cycle, with just greater dosages. I'd have preferred it if she admitted that 40+ wasn't her expertise and referred me to one of the other doctors in her practice, perhaps, but there didn't seem to be that type of collaboration inside the practice, either.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
If you are over 40, go somewhere else. Period. If you're under 40, review the SART rates, and ask for more information about their lab. Also, ask ask ask about supplements you can take to increase your chances. Additionally, consider what it means to treat the WHOLE you throughout this process. There are IVF meditiations on apps for your iPhone, see a counselor. This is hard. Do things to take care of YOU throughout this process and find the right doctor that supports you.
Describe the protocols Rebecca Chilvers used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
375 gonal F, 150 menopur. Day 5 start of Cetrotide. Ovadril trigger shot. THERE WAS NO RATIONALE provided. Results: 5 mature follicles. 2 retrieved, 3 "stuck to wall" (Dr. Goeffrey Sher has a blog post on why that likely happens in AMA women: https://drgeoffreysherivf.com/implications-of-empty-follicle-syndrome-and-premature-luteinization/). Notice that in 2015, this Doctor wrote about how LH hormone could be the issue with egg quality in stim cycles for AMA patients. Now, look back at my treatment plan: double the LH hormone from Day 1. No ICSI recommended by doctor, so 1 fertilized, poor quality embryo; didn't make it to Day 5. Was left a message on a Sunday that my embryo died and that it was on me to make a follow-up appointment.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I remember most of the testing being over $1000 each, which meant over $300 out of pocket for an HSG, ultrasound, etc. Claims were delayed in hitting my insurance for some reason, so monies paid toward my deductible weren't being counted when they would talk to me about my OOP for pharmacy and IVF treatment. It was frustrating.

Everyone at the clinic [Fertility Specialists of TX- Frisco] is super helpful and we even had a meeting with an insurance advocate there which was super helpful for us in understanding what (little) coverage we have for infertility. The mornings can get super crowded in the waiting room but that's because labs are done before 9am. I'd say if you're not there for labs try to schedule appointments later in the day.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Chilvers is very kind and friendly right off the bat. It is very apparent that she loves what she does and takes the time to ask a lot of questions and takes notes for reference at the next appointment. Never once have I felt like she didn't remember me or our situation. I am very comfortable with the IVF cycle we are beginning with her and putting our future in her hands.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Brandy)
Brandy has been super helpful w/my calendar and teaching me how to do my shots. She gets back with me ASAP when I leave her messages or email her. I really like her!
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Chilvers is makes me feel comfortable and is very good at explaining what she thinks is the best course of treatment for our infertility. We are just starting our first IVF cycle and I am very excited that she is in the drivers seat! Also, to note... she is great at referencing pictures to show exactly what she is talking about. Both my husband and I are visual learners and it is great to be able to picture what she's talking about each visit.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Send all of your information beforehand from past doctors/diagnosis'/surgeries/OBGYN reports, as she is a thorough note taker and this will save time.
Describe the protocols Rebecca Chilvers used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
We are proceeding w/IVF as this is our best option due to us both having issues. My husband has been diagnosed with vericole so his swimmers are abnormal, and I have endometriosis w/cysts which I've already had to have surgery on once before due to intense pain. We are also going to do ICSI and genetic testing to ensure we are transferring the best possible embryos.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Oocyte Retrieval - $2655, ICSI - $1500, PGS - $2500, Assisted Hatching - $360, Embryo Freezing $900, Embryo Transfer $423, Embryo Thaw $216, not including any meds from pharmacy
Describe Rebecca Chilvers's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Dr. Chilvers only does one at a time to ensure a healthy pregnancy and baby. I am absolutely on board with this as I want the same. I think this is a great practice!

The clinic [Fertility Specialists of TX-Frisco] initially had me scheduled for an IUI but it should have been timed intercourse as discussed with the doctor. During my CD3 visit I spent 1 hour going back and forth with the office staff, biiling, and administrator about my agreed upon treatment. I was told that I had to do IUI since I am in a same sex marriage. After discussing discrimination I was allowed to move forward. My protocol was never communicated to office staff so each appointment I spent 30+ minutes explaining to staff that the records are incorrect. They ended up billing me and my insurance company for almost double what I should have been charged. The issue was never resolved and my cycle was canceled the day of my beta.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The clinic and billing staff are unorganized and rude. The staff do not communicate with each other. My billing issue was never resolved which resulted in the cancellation of my treatment on the day of my scheduled Beta.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
The initial consultation was very thorough. We discussed my medical history in great detail and came up with a plan of action. Each appointment during my treatment cycle felt rushed. The nurses and techs were great but Dr. Goldstein was not receptive to my concerns or comfort.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is very thorough during the initial visit. He explained my treatment options and allowed me to decide what option was best for me. Once the treatment cycle started he was very uninvolved. I had to have an extra day of monitoring and he saw me for that ultrasound. During the ultrasound I explained to him that the tech had trouble with finding my ovaries with the probe and had to look on top. Instead of trying that, he proceeded to use the probe no matter how uncomfortable it was. I was literally crying from the pain. He not once apologized. He then very bluntly made a very discouraging remark and told me that I can continue the cycle if I wanted but not to expect a favorable result. I left in pain and feeling very discouraged.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Catch him on a good day.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with PCOS so we started off semi-aggressive since I did not respond to Clomid in the last. My treatment included CD3 baseline and ultrasound, Femara 5mg CD3-7, Follistim 75 iu CD6 and CD8. I went in for CD10 bloodwork and ultrasound and was instructed to take another 75iu of Follistim that day and come back CD11 for another day of bloodwork and ultrasound as the folliclegrowth was slow but steady. On CD11, I was instructed to take the last 75iu of Follistim and trigger shot on CD12 with timed intercourse 24 and 36 hours later. Beta was scheduled for CD28
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The global out of pocket cost for timed intercourse was $730 and the global IUI fee was $1300

From our first appointment with Dr. Patel, he made us feel so comfortable and at ease, despite the nervousness we felt walking into his office. We had already submitted our medical history to him prior to our appointment and it was evident he throughly reviewed it prior to meeting with us and discussed every single detail of our history with us. I loved that because doctors prior to him never went into detail about our history in order to provide us the best course of treatment.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Alyssa Fox)
My nurse along with the entire nurse team was awesome. Even when I had to go to their Frisco locations on the weekend and for egg retrieval, the nurses there were so friendly and awesome. Sometimes it was hard to reach Alyssa and I did have one email she didn't respond to regarding medications I was out of but a nurse at the Frisco location was able to assist when I met with her on a Saturday. Alyssa made sure my calendars were sent on time and with instructions and after each appt, she called later that afternoon to provide results and answer any questions or concerns.
How was your experience with Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
As stated before, Dr. Patel was very thorough and easy to understand. He broke down every part of the process and if we still didn't understand or had questions, he gladly answered. We never felt rushed or like we were just "another number" to him. Even when my visit consisted of just meeting with a nurse, if he was in the office, he would make sure to pop in to speak and make sure we were ok or had any questions. This has really eased our anxiety and stress knowing we're in his care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Ask everything! You will not feel rushed, he will definitely take time to answer everything. There's no such thing as a bad question! He is there to help you reach your ultimate goal... to have a healthy baby!
Describe the protocols Satin Patel used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Luckily during our first consultation, I was able to get an ultrasound and bloodwork due to me being on a certain day of my cycle. Of course there's bloodwork all the time but during that first appointment he discovered I had a thyroid issue which not even my Primary Care provider addressed (that I had just seen). He put me on Levothyroxine 0.075mg and my energy has greatly improved. I was then scheduled for an HSG to determine whether my fallopian tubes were open and we discovered one was slightly blocked and then a Saline Infusion Sonohysterography to examine my uterine cavity. He saw a small fibroid outside of my uterus that he assured he'd continue to monitor and also a small polyp that he said they would remove after my egg retrieval if it did not disappear on it's on. He also placed me on birth control pills to start on cycle day 3 of my menses. After I completed my first round of BCP, I started the following meds: Day 1-4: Menopur 150IU (a.m.) Follistim 375units (p.m.) Day 5-7 Menopur 225IU (a.m.) Follistim 375units (p.m.) Ganirelix (prefilled syringe) Day 8-9 Menopur 225IU (a.m.) Follistim 375units (p.m.) Ganirelix (prefilled syringe) Z-Pack (my husband and I) Day 10 Menopur 225IU (a.m.) Follistim 375units (p.m.) Z-Pack (my husband and I) Novarel 10000 units Day 11: Z-Pack (my husband and I) All of my follicles seemed to be on track each visit and at egg retrieval they retrieved more than the nurse and I both expected. Of course I'd read the symptoms others experienced on similar or same meds but I would describe my STIMS cycle pretty easy. No pain, very little bloating, no other side effects. We retrieved 13 eggs, 8 matured, 5 fertilized and 4 made it to Day 6 freeze.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Pretty simple and the waiting room wasn't filled with patients waiting to be seen. I never sat in the waiting room longer than 5min before getting called to do labs and escorted to the examining room for my ultrasound.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Unfortunately our insurance doesn't cover anything related to fertility treatment except labs and my first consultation. For my particular IVF treatment it was $10,800 (not including 15% military discount. This covered the following: Office visits Sonograms Blood draws Lab-Estradiol Lab-Progesterone Lab-Luteinizing Hormone Lab-Beta HCG (1) Ultrasound Oocyte (egg) retrieval Oocyte identification Insemination of Oocytes Culture of embryos Preparation of embryos Ultrasound for embryo transfer Embryo that Embryo transfer Embryo Cryopreservation Additional Cost we Occured were: PGD/PGS Biopsy - $2500 Medications - $7500 ICSI - $1500 Assisted Hatching- $900 Sperm Extraction- $1500 We had 4 Blastocysts and the genetic testing is $350/embryo. If you have 6-8 there's a flat fee of $1850 and anything over 8 an additional $250/embryo plus $100 shipping cost.
Describe Satin Patel's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
During our appt for the HSG and SIS, the doctor did say he preferred to transfer one blastocyst but would discuss further once we were ready to transfer and also after examining me prior to transfer to make sure there are no other fibroids, polyps, etc. that might cause problems. I do love he is open to transferring two but also wants to make sure it is safe for both patient and baby.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The clinic is well organized and very clean, but can be very busy. There were a few times that we waited well over our appointment time to be seen. However, everyone we met at the clinic was very friendly and helpful. We were using insurance, and the financial staff rarely could answer our questions about what expenses were expected. We wanted to do pGS testing and were originally told our insurance would cover it, but then mid cycle we had to cancel this procedure because we were then told that insurance would not cover it because the lab doesn't accept insurance and we would need to cash up front.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Every member of staff was always friendly and accommodating. Although the office was busy, we never felt rushed during our appointments and all of our questions were thoroughly answered. The staff was overjoyed when we got our positive result.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The entire nursing staff was very friendly and my personal nurse always answered my questions promptly.
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Chilvers did an excellent job working with our diagnoses and preferences to come up with q successful protocol to make us pregnant. She didnt ask us to waste time and money with IUIs. She always explained exactly what she was doing and the scientific reasoning behind it. Everything she did was research based and thorough. She is friendly and professional.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Trust the process. This clinic and doctor know exactly what they are doing and will take every measure to increase your chances of success.
Describe the protocols Rebecca Chilvers used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
We did a freeze all IVF retrieval cycle, because of my high risk of OHSS and because success rates are higher with frozen embryos than fresh. I do not feel comfortable noting my exact medications, and regardless these will be tailored to your specific circumstances. My eggs were fertilized via ICSI due to make factor infertility. We ended up freezing 10 high quality embryos and did a transfer cycle some months later. Our first transfer was successful. We did a down regulated cycle leading up to transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
We used insurance coverage to cover most of our cycle. We paid copayments per visit and about 3k in medication costs (our insurance covered 5k and the 3k is what was remaining of the balance.) We never knew what amounts to expect to pay for each procedure until after it had gone through insurance. We did receive an additional bill for $400 months after our transfer was completed.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The only complaint I have is the person that discussed our insurance coverage wasn’t extremely empathetic. It was like a job interview. Would have liked to seen more compassion. The rest of the clinic, however, was extremely compassionate and friendly. Made you feel at home during an hard time.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
He made sure to take plenty of time to sit and talk to us and try to connect with us. We weren’t just in and out of the office. He was thorough and when he confirmed the loss of my fertility, he was very caring and assured me we’d put together a plan.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
When I first started on the estrogen, it made me very sick. The nurse called me and emailed me to check on me. She also offered (free of charge) to hold a conference call with my sisters (potential egg donors) and mom to answer questions, address concerns, etc. It meant so much to not only myself but my family.
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Jerald was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We never felt rushed or like we were on the clock. When we received devastating results, he assured us we would put together a plan to have a family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Ask a lot of questions and don’t hesitate to have him explain if you don’t understand something.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Since we have to use an egg donor and aren’t to that place yet, I can’t answer fully. He did prescribe me estrogen though to get my cycles back to normal and he also redid all blood tests to confirm the diagnosis.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Since we basically went to get confirmed results and out a plan together, our insurance covered majority of the basic visit. If we were to move forward with the donor egg/transfer/embryo transfer, our out of pocket costs would be around $14,000 with insurance.
Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Due to my autoimmune disease (Addison’s Disease) he suggested a single embryo transfer since my body can’t handle additional stress. I was surprised he knew about this rare disease and appreciated his honesty.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The clinic is well known in this area so it attracts patients from near and far. Dr. Goldstein is touted as being the best of the best and you can see that in the number of people that are in the clinic at any given time - patients and staff.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?

What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Lost appointments
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is no doubt a highly skilled professional and also a very good businessman with multiple locations and an army of staff. In my initial interactions with him I was impressed with his knowledge and confidence in my chances of getting pregnant. Over the course of my time with his clinic, I became increasingly frustrated with the lack of guidance I needed in my protocol, during and in between cycles. Because I was expected to respond to the same treatment as other patients, and my body did not conform to that idea, I was only able to complete ONE IUI with him over the course of 7 months I was with his clinic. It wasn't until I went to a different clinic that I found out there were other options for my treatment timeline.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Advocate for yourself while communicating the need for data-driven medical advice.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
HSG and blood tests initially, Follistim and Letrozole simultaneously during cycles. When I wouldn't start my cycles on time I was put on birth control and after I decided I no longer wanted to do that because of negative reactions to the birth control, I was put on prometrium which also did not work. After that I was told I would just have to wait until it started on it's own.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
My insurance partially covers IUI up to 6 times. I paid around $100 every visit.

Overall, the staff [at Fertility Specialists of TX] was really good. But you definitely have to take an active role in your own care and stay on top of things. I also had multiple wonky billing issues - At one point I found I had a credit by happenstance. It was a total fluke I found out about it, and yet every appointment I had to keep telling them I didn't owe anything. I don't know how often they reconcile their books, but when they do, they aren't good about informing the patients. I also had a few surprise bills where "all-inclusive" packages didn't include a few things that weren't disclosed.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I don't think any clinic is perfect, and this one is no exception. At one point, I found myself being repeatedly put on hold for 20 minutes. But I complained and was put through to the office manager, and that never happened again. Occasionally, the nurses can get overwhelmed and you can fall through the cracks - you don't get timely information or you realize something in your protocol isn't accurate. That is certainly the exception, not the norm. Overall, the staff was really good. But you definitely have to take an active role in your own care and stay on top of things. I also had multiple wonky billing issues - At one point I found I had a credit by happenstance. It was a total fluke I found out about it, and yet every appointment I had to keep telling them I didn't owe anything. I don't know how often they reconcile their books, but when they do, they aren't good about informing the patients. I also had a few surprise bills where "all-inclusive" packages didn't include a few things that weren't disclosed. I will say that these are all minor issues that popped up. In the year and a half I've been going to the clinic, almost everything went smoothly, and when it didn't the clinic was usually apologetic and wanted to make things right. There are some staff members that are absolutely awesome so I just made sure to use those people as my points of contact!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein has a huge heart. He takes the time to see his patients directly even when it's not necessary. You can tell it's so important to him that patients end up with a take-home baby. His personality is a little different - but it's because he's so smart and thinking all the time - but the warmth that comes through from his is evident.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Jeanette)
Jeanette - a nurse and the surrogacy coordinator - is the absolute best. She's smart, responsive, and compassionate. Her information was always timely and accurate. I can't say enough good things about her.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is very smart and thinks about multiple things at once. That can come across as scatter-brained and can make it difficult to pin him down to get answers. BUT if you're patient with him about getting all the answers, he will take the time to get you all the information you need. He truly wants his patients to have all the information, and he's even made time to see me when I didn't have an appointment. He is such a cheerleader for you and isn't afraid of changing course if something is working. He will also take into account the patient's preference. For example, my surrogate had used a medication before that she liked. He typically doesn't prescribe it but since she had had no issues with it before, he didn't mind including it in her protocol this time. He's truly interested in making his practice better. I had switched from another doctor in the practice - one that I was very unhappy with. That doctor had a very warm personality but failed on multiple fronts. Dr. Goldstein really wanted to take the time to understand what I was unhappy about. He even spent time going over his colleague's protocol and told me what he would have done differently. There was no defensiveness on his part, even though he practiced with the other doctor, which I really appreciated. I finally feel very confident in our choice of fertility specialist.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
He's brilliant. But you have to be patient/persistent in getting answers to your questions because he can get lost on tangents. But you won't regret choosing him as your doctor.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
I had two egg retrieval cycles with my prior RE, who practices with Goldstein. The first cycle ended with no healthy embryos. The second cycle ended with only two. The only difference in medication in the two cycles was the addition of human growth hormone and the upping the dosage of Menopur by quite a bit. When Dr. Goldstein looked at the results and the protocol prescribed by his colleague, he said that he would have significantly changed my medications because it was clear that my body didn't respond to them the first round. I felt like Dr. Goldstein had a lot more tools in his toolbox to choose from than did my prior doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Our egg retrievals were part insurance, part out of pocket. I'm honestly not sure we saved any money by using insurance because our portion was so high. Cash pay might have been cheaper. We are now using a gestational carrier. It is $5000 per FET cycle. That doesn't include her initial medical clearance or her medications. That does include a surrogacy coordination fee, which some clinics charge separately. I've been very happy with the surrogacy coordinator there. She's the best.
Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Dr. Goldstein fully supports my eSET decision. I came in with that decision, but he never once pushed or intimidated that we should do more than one. He really thinks one is best, though I know because of the expense of surrogacy, if we wanted him to transfer two, he would do it.

The staff [Fertility Specialists of Texas] that answered the phone was always friendly and felt vested in your journey.... Monitoring was a well oiled machine. It was in the mornings between 7 and 9. You got a specific time within that window but as long as you came into that window they would still get you in whether it was early or later than your scheduled time. The sonogram tech was sweet and cheery which is needed at 7am. I actually preferred the sonogram tech to any of the doctors in the practice doing the monitoring.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The staff that answered the phone was always friendly and felt vested in your journey. They have recently lost their nurse coordinator and practice administrator so things are a little more disorganized. Be proactive in asking for next steps or appts. The work they do is great but they are in transition right now.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr Patel listened to our history and experience and added input when necessary. He didn't give a canned speech he has given a hundred times before. He made the chances clear but was still hopeful that we would find the right procedures to get us the desired outcome.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Kelly)
Kelly was amazing. Willing to answer our questions anytime day or night. No matter how silly or embarrassing. I'm sad to hear she has moved on from the practice. There was one of the younger nurses that was terrible at taking blood that often resulted in bleeding afterwards. I even saw several patients in the elevator with blood dripping down their arm. The sonogram tech was also amazing. She had a great bedside manner, which was helpful since they do all their sonograms at 7am.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr Patel was warm and supportive without offering false hope. He made it clear that multiple transfers would have to be done for a single live birth. I also felt he was highly knowledgeable and explained why he did or did not recommend a procedure. He also recommended best case scenario instead of heartbreaking trial and error with lessor procedures. I had the utmost confidence that we would get our baby with him. My only negative was once we got a successful transfer it became less clear the procedure was from there.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
An office is only as successful as tje nurses and he has some great nurses. Make friends with the nurses, they are the ones that will be taking your blood to get those vital stats, doing your ultrasound, and holding your hand the day of transfer. Don't be afraid to ask questions or next steps.

We did retrieval, ICSI, and PGS. I don't recall the exact protocols but we were given them in writing with a calendar. The only negative side effect came after my lining wasn't developing before transfer so they upped my dose of estrogen. I was on estrogen patches, orally, and vaginally. I did experience emotional disturbances from the extra estrogen up until transfer. Dr Patel also prescribed lidocain patches for the progesterone shots and it made all the difference.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Monitoring was a well oiled machine. It was in the mornings between 7 and 9. You got a specific time within that window but as long as you came into that window they would still get you in whether it was early or later than your scheduled time. The sonogram tech was sweet and cheery which is needed at 7am. I actually preferred the sonogram tech to any of the doctors in the practice doing the monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Satin Patel at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I don't recall individual costs but according to our insurance, we spent a total of 17,000 for a retrieval, ICSI, PGS, and 2 transfers. Medication was additional $2,000 out of pocket.
Describe Satin Patel's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Dr Patel does believe that single embryo transfer is just as effective and multiple embryo transfer. I agreed that I would rather have more chances to transfer than a chance at multiples. My insurance would also only pay for single embryo transfer but we could pay out of pocket for multiple embryo transfer.

Tiecha [a nurse at Fertility Specialists of TX]- I do not feel as though she has much compassion or sympathy. She is not very warm. She is also not very prompt at returning emails in a timely manner. But if a problem arises she does get it handed quickly. I really like Brandi at the office. She is very sweet, unfortunately she works under another doctor in the practice and not Dr. Goldstein anymore.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I like that they have different locations so it makes the clinic more accessible. It is a clean clinic.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
It would be nice to receive a phone call from Dr. Goldstein when something does not go as planned such as a miscarriage. A follow up call would be nice. He also tends to ask the same questions over and over as if he does not remember you.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Brandy and then Teicha )
Tiecha- I do not feel as though she has much compassion or sympathy. She is not very warm. She is also not very prompt at returning emails in a timely manner. But if a problem arises she does get it handed quickly. I really like Brandi at the office. She is very sweet, unfortunately she works under another doctor in the practice and not Dr. Goldstein anymore.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein does have a stutter or speech impediment so you have to be patient with him. I do like that he advocates for acupuncture. He is also open-minded if you request additional medications that you think may help in the treatment plan. I do not like that he sometimes asks the same questions as if he does not remember your protocol or history.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Do not be afraid to ask questions and be your own advocate
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Two weeks of birth control before stims starting on CD2. Follistim 150-300 and Menopur 75-150. I also used omnitrope which is something I asked for to possibly help with egg quality. My estrogen levels were high so we used lupron as a trigger instead of Novarel which is what we were going to originally use. For FET I used lupron, estradiol tablets, antibiotics, and baby aspirin. I also used PIO with a sesame base- I had an allergic reaction so had to ask to be switched to PIO in ethyl oleate. I ended up with 3 embryos to freeze out of 11 eggs collected.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I do not have the information with me but I believe the cost of IVF is around $15,000. Not including medications.
Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Since this was my second round of IVF but my first transfer, Dr. Goldstein believed I had been through a lot so he suggested transferring two embryos.

The clinic [Fertility Specialists of Texas] messed up a prescription and also overcharged me for services that were not rendered. They fixed it once I caught the issue...The clinic just feels like an assembly line. There is no personal feel when you start to ask questions and need more details. This is a scary and intimidating process, so the method of care is really important...I have a tubular blockage so IVF was recommended. They retrieved 3 eggs, 2 were implanted. But they did not take. For the next round it was recommended that I freeze the eggs after retrieval instead of an immediate implantation.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The clinic just feels like an assembly line. There is no personal feel when you start to ask questions and need more details. This is a scary and intimidating process, so the method of care is really important.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
The doctor never remembered detail about me or my treatment. She would always look for a second ovary when we discussed each visit that it had been removed. So taking the time to read the chart before coming in would have saved me from reliving a painful experience at every visit.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Some nurse we were very good. I wish I had their names to add. But there was 1 that was disorganized and cost me getting the proper medicine needed because she didn't follow through with an order from the doctor. Some others just made you feel like a number during such a sensitive situation.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
The doctor didn't have a warm bedside manner and honestly I felt she was confused when it came to the details of my case. She would ask me the same questions each visit and be surprised by my answers each time. If she took the time to review my chart, I wouldn't have to tell her about emotional surgeries each time. I think it was just rushed and not a situation where I felt like I had individualized care rather than a one size fits all approach.

Describe the protocols Rebecca Chilvers used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
I have a tubular blockage so IVF was recommended. They retrieved 3 eggs, 2 were implanted. But they did not take. For the next round it was recommended that I freeze the eggs after retrieval instead of an immediate implantation. I believe this was recommended because they didn't want to hurt their statistics if the implant did not work again. The embryos did not survive the freezing.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I don't have the details, but my insurance was exhausted after 1 IVF full cycle and an attempted retrieval and freezing at $30k.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Kelly Moore)

What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
She's very thorough and smart, sometimes she seems a bit busy bouncing from appointment to appointment, but I can tell she handles that very well. Even with my smallest appointments where a nurse could handle it, she's usually there.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Ask questions and voice your thoughts.
Describe the protocols Rebecca Chilvers used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
3 rounds of IVF, with no fertility problems, we are strictly doing this for PGD. Round 1 was a simple protocol that produced 6 eggs, but 4 made it to blast/testing. Since we are doing PGD, we went into another cycle to batch 2 months later. We upped the meds a bit, got 11 eggs, but again 4 made it to blast. Of the 8 genetically tested for our disease and PGS, 2 were healthy. After miscarrying 1 @ 8 weeks along, we decided to do another fresh cycle. We upped the dosage again, yeilding 11 eggs, but sadly 8 were severely immature leaving us with only 3 to work with. From those 3, 2 made it to blast. We are gearing up for another round to batch.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Depending on where we were with our copay, my ultrasounds/labwork visits were $180 until my deductible was met, then it became $45. We did have to pay out of pocket for 1 egg retrieval , it was $9750. THe most recent retrieval was covered, but our copay was $900

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I felt he actually took the time to read through my history. We’re a military family so we’ve moved several times through our journey. He is very warm and honest and i feel doesn’t set unrealistic expectations. I hope to pursue treatment with him.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
She was very sweet and had a great bedside manner
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein took ample time with me going over our medical and infertility history. He made me feel like i was his only appointment that day and never once did i feel rushed or not heard. He was very straightforward and honest and had several different options for us moving forward. I feel like he is trustworthy and not just in it for the money or noteriety.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
If you have a question ask! They genuinely want you to feel comfortable in the process and decisions.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Dr. Goldstein feels that the reason our last two transfers with a previous doctor failed were likely due to embryo quality. Although he encouraged another egg retrevial he supported our desire to pursue a frozen embryo transfer with the remaining embryos we had.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
For the embryo transfer it was estimated between $5k-7k. Dr. Goldstein feels we need a fresh cycle which was quoted at $17k. Higher prices reflect our insurance not covering our treatment which they sadly do not.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr Goldstein has very poor social skills, little affect, and is robotic in nature in his interactions with patients. This makes for horrible bed side manner. When patients (such as myself) were distraught or saddened over poor outcomes with transfers he awkwardly didnt know how to respond.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I didnt have a relationship with the nurses there. I dont recall working with anyone specific person to give a description of.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
At the time I didnt think much either way of him. He was awkward in his interactions with others but that was it. After paying 24,000 for two failed cycles, and seeing a different doctor. I was LIVID to discover I had significant fertility diagnosis that he missed and continued to do IVF rounds without addressing the problems first. I had fibroids, Endometriosis, and a Uterine Septum that went undiagnosed through 2 rounds of IVF.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I would highly recommend that they visit someone else with greater attention to detail, and the ethics to not take patients money without telling them the entire medical picture. I filed a complaint on this doctor for doing IVF rounds on me without treating my other medical conditions. My subsequent IVF doctor performed a surgery prior to IVF rounds so that I could get pregnant. He should have done this, but he didnt. He just kept taking my money for IVF rounds that he should have known would not be successful considering all my conditions.
Describe the protocols Jerald Goldstein used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
We did two IVF fresh rounds. I dont recall the specific medications or injections I used. I just know that he didnt change it from one round to the next. Both rounds had very poor results. only producing 2 transferable embryos with nothing to freeze. I dont even know the embryo grades as that information was never explained or shared with me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
ABout $12,000 per IVF cycle give or take some medications.
Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
We did 2 embryo transfer each time and I was fine with that. In fact, I prefer that.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff was great. Walked me through the vitals and blood work. Every one was pleasant.
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I’m still currently going through my initial visits prior to my next treatment. Dr. Chilvers is very thorough. She is very direct and may seem very cold but I think she’s constantly thinking and calculating as she’s reviewing your paperwork. She took her time and made it personable. She walked me through each step and I felt comfortable talking to her and didn’t feel rushed.

Don’t be turned off by her directness. Remember why you’re there and she cuts to the chase.

It is very modern and has a lot of new technology. Another doctor I saw before her did not have an email addresss or patient portal.her I can get all my results instantly and get electronic copies to send to my other providers as well.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dorette Noorhasan at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
She was sympathetic and very understanding of my situation. I went from not even thinking about having children to the very real possiblity that I probably won't b able to have kids. Since I am still in my mid 20's, she told me she would try everything to give me at least a shot of having kids someday and that's all I was looking to when I went to see her for the first time.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They replied to phone and emails very quickly and got insurance issues resolved so effectively
How was your experience with Dorette Noorhasan at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
She reviewed my medical history and talked with my previous doctors since my case was unique. She was very honest and said that it would be hard for me to have kids of my own, something I had not even thought about yet. She is helping treat my cyst on my remaining ovary and then going to freeze my eggs. While other doctors gave me no options, she at least gave me a small chance at having children in the future.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dorette Noorhasan at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
She doesn't always spend a lot of time with Artie TA so have all your questions ready because it will be hard to get in contact with her once she leaves the room

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
A lot of programs they offer are not geared towards LGBT individuals. They offered on their website an inclusive package however we were not eligible for this because as a gay couple we were not using our own eggs. Also prices are not discounted after an unsuccessful transfer. For example, a transfer is $5000 (plus medication) no matter how many times you transfer. Our previous clinic discounted after each unsuccessful transfer.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is not the most personable Doctor. He is not warm and fuzzy.

How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I think Dr Goldstein is super knowledgeable about his discipline, however his lack of warmth at times can be a little discouraging. I don’t get that personal connection that I got with my other Doctor that he was truly invested in us having a baby.

The nurses were all amazing and kind. They were very compassionate when calling it discussing bad news. We started with Brandi as our nurse who we loved and then Teisha, who we loved also, became ours as the doctors switched nurses. I just wish they had given us a heads up about them switching.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I was always treated warmly but felt not important during the time we waited to find out if our ectopic pregnancy was viable.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Kelly Moore)
Kelly is the most amazing nurse I've ever had. She truly loves her patients and is familiar with their treatment cycle. After not seeing her for about a year she recognized me in a public setting and ran to embrace me. A truly incredible nurse!!
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Goldstein is quirky and slightly antisocial, but is incredibly intelligent, compassionate and dedicated. He's sometimes hard to understand, due to a slight speech impediment. However, he's highly skilled and I'm astounded by his knowledge in his field. He's an incredible physician and truly loves his patients and his practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
If you want the best, Dr. Goldstein is exactly that. If you're needing a hand holder, he's probably not going to be a fit, personality wise. He has great compassion, but is more clinical in his approach. However, his nurses are incredible at filling the gap.

I paid about $4000 per IUI including the sperm and shipping to the facility... We did a round of Clomid, a trigger shot. Same thing second round but the trigger shot may have been different kind of trigger shot.

Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
The only thing was I needed a procedure done in a time frame before I flew to my home town where I had a donor and I would’ve had to do the whole check up and reschedule the procedure, I was able to get the same procedure faster with a different fertility clinic and also found out through that clinic I had polyps. I understand it’s policy and procedure but it would’ve pushed my chances with my donor out. Not that it mattered it didn’t take anyways so I had surgery and now I hope he can help me and have it work.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
He’s a nice man and I know he genuinely wants to help couples have a family. I am still working on my family so we are not there yet.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Jeanette is my favorite, and the last nurse who did my second IUI was understanding when I explained that I needed her to take her time and use small equipment because I’m a small person.
How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I think he should take a moment with patients during check ups and visits and maybe perform IUI’s. The nurses do the IUI’s. More confidence when speaking at events. Be honest without sugar coating.other than that he’s a great guy and he knows his stuff.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions or be open.

Describe Jerald Goldstein's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I think it’s good to explain the possibility of multiples but when you are like me it may sound like I am greedy but I’d rather put in at least 3 because if I do 2 and none take I won’t get to do this again. Many of us can afford to be parents but many of us can’t afford the charges to specialty have a family the harder way especially back to back. An IVF is the total of a car. With a car you have something to show that truly is crushing to spend all that money for nothing and your dreams shattered. I never thought I’d have to do fertility. We both have jobs but as good as they are we are not rich we just wanted a chance at having at least one baby.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Leetiecha Martinson, Amy Fleming)
I formed a quick bond with both of my primary nurses during both times I was under Dr. Goldstein's care. One of which is no longer there.

How was your experience with Jerald Goldstein at Fertility Specialists of Texas?

I live out of state so the doctor allowed me to do my monitoring with my local OBGYN. That made a tremendous difference in my stress level during their care.

The nurses were so friendly and remembered you.... took interest in our cycle! it made it seem less stressful talking it out while giving blood all the time
How was your experience with Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
My husband and I went in just finding out that he has 0% morphology when we met Dr. Chilvers.... she took in our ages and my miscarriage history only went over a little of my family history... basically drew out our conception chances on the back of our semen analysis paper. tellings us we were so young I at the time was 26 and DH was 33. that our chances are super high and nothing to worry about. she ordered little medication which I ended up needing to order more towards the end of stims. I got OHSS and they almost cancelled my cycle. we ended up going forward with the Egg Retrieval. We on our own decided we wanted to use ICSI and we are glad we did. we both truly liked Dr. Chilvers... she was just very new to the IVF world and seemed inexperienced. She did do out WTF appointment after and only recommended IVF ICSI again. She did call a few weeks after to check in on us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rebecca Chilvers at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Make sure she goes over everything with you slowly. We did visit her over two years ago so I'm sure shes a pro now!

The front office [at Fertility Specialists of TX-Grapevine] kept calling me to make payments and I’m a loan patient!!! One time they told me that I was the one mistaken that I didn’t have an US only labs and I got 30 minutes down the road and they had to call me back for the US!!! I’ve also had to pay for a saline sonogram and they misquoted the cost the first time so I hadn’t paid enough, but then when they called to tell me stated I owed 400$. I threw a fit and she comes back on the phone saying it’s actually 103.24$ that you owe and then they wouldn’t see me until it was paid in full!! Well I went to the clinic with 100$ cash and they wouldn’t see my unless I paid then$3.24 SO STUPID! Another woman in the office helped me out and paid it.

[The nurses at Fertility Specialists of Texas are] Very organized and quick to respond to any questions I had...Clinic is beautiful.

IVF with ICSI and PGS testing of our embryos. We already had done IVF and were unsuccessful so it made sense to try again with more information about our embryos.

My nurse [at Fertility Specialists of Texas] was excellent she kept in touch through the process and was accessible for any questions I had...I like the clinic because it was close to my job at that time. The only problem is I wished they had working hours after 5 pm or weekends. The other problem was the surgery center is located in Frisco which is a little far for me...She [Dr. Dorette Noorhasan] is a good doctor with a lot of patience and is able to explain treatments.
