Dr. Le has three different clinics [IVFMD]...At first it seemed like he had too many patients and it was just him overseeing all three clinics...Sometimes the wait times are a little long.

Describe your experience with IVFMD.
Dr. Le has three different clinics in Arlington, Irving, and Grapevine. At first it seemed like he had too many patients and it was just him overseeing all three clinics. He has hired two more RE's and I think everything runs a little smoother. Sometimes the wait times are a little long. I can see why though, he and his staff spend all the time you need when you are with them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sy Le at IVFMD?
He is very kind and caring. He takes the time to answer or reanswer every question. He gives realistic expectations for treatment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They all seem very nice and compassionate. They never say the wrong thing like my OB's nurse would sometimes. I never had the same one. They always answered all of my questions.
How was your experience with Sy Le at IVFMD?
He is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. I think he might be a little overworked. He oversees three clinics. He makes sure you and your spouse are part of the treatment plan. He completely took my concerns seriously that I had not been checked for anything by my OB/GYN and he found endometriosis. He did not want to me to waste money on any treatments that he did not think would be successful. He personally explained all of the costs of everything. When I applied for a grant and needed him to do paper work. he had it ready the next day.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sy Le at IVFMD?
To open to his suggestions, he has been doing this a long time and probably knows what you need the most to be successful.
Describe the protocols Sy Le used in your cycles at IVFMD and their degree of success.
He completed one diagnostic IUI cycle with us when we first went to see him. They got in for an appointment within 30 days of calling and we started the IUI process immediately.This was after I had four failed clomid IUI's with my OB/GYN and my husband had a varicocelectomy. I took femara for 5 days. I had an ultrasound at the beginning along with an OB lab panel and my husband had an advanced semen analysis done. I had an HSG and another ultrasound closer to ovulation time. He specifically told me when to use the trigger shot and he himself did the IUI. After the IUI failed he recommended that I have a lap surgery to explore further since we had been trying for four years and everything else looked normal to good. He did not want me to waste more money on IUI if there was something that we were not seeing. He found stage II endometriosis and was ready to move on to IVF for our next treatment. We are just working saving up the money for IVF now.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sy Le at IVFMD.
my diagnostic IUI with meds was $1200. My HSG, semen analysis, and OB lab panel was covered by insurance with a $30 copay. My lap surgery was covered 80% by insurance and I had to pay $3200 out of pocket. My IVF cycle will not be covered by insurance. Dr. Le estimate that it would cost $9250 for the cycle and $3000-$5000 for medications.
Describe Sy Le's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD.
He recommends single embryo transfers. He sites the CDC guidelines as his reasoning.

The clinic [IVFMD] is pretty good about keeping appointment times. I don't have to wait very long to go back, 10 minutes at the most. They play good music in the waiting room and have fish tank. The exam rooms are large and clean and they turn on smaller lighting to avoid the harsh bright florescent. The bathroom is actually decorated as opposed to a sterile hospital type bathroom. The education rooms are a little bare. Wish they would decorate those like the bathrooms. Labcorp is on the first floor of the building where the clinic is located so it makes it very convenient to get bloodwork that the clinic can't do.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sy Le at IVFMD?
In the beginning consulting stages he was very educational in his approach on communicating with my husband and I the process of IVF. He drew many illustrations and diagrams to help us understand. I have always felts that he cares whether or not we can have a baby.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD. (Assigned nurse: Katherine)
Katherine is very pleasant. She calls and checks in frequently. She thoroughly explains my medications. She doesn't offer up a lot of extra information so my husband always asks the questions i forget about.
How was your experience with Sy Le at IVFMD?
Dr. Le was really great on explaining the entire IVF cycle in the beginning. Now that we're actively in the cycle, I don't feel as comfortable with my knowledge. The visits now with him are very short but then again he's only doing sonograms and always answers our questions while he's in the room. I'm just left with a feeling that i don't know as much as i should.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sy Le at IVFMD?
Ask questions. Ask so many that you think you're annoying him. He's very patient to answer and will explain thoroughly.
Describe the protocols Sy Le used in your cycles at IVFMD and their degree of success.
We are doing an antagonist protocol. I stared with 10 units of Lupron for 12 days. Starting day 12 I will add 300 units of Gonal, Menopur and 5 units of Lupron. Not sure of the menopur dose but its one little bottle of the liquid mixed together with one bottle of the powder. That's as far as i've gotten so i'm not sure of the rest of the process. I do know i'll have an HCG trigger shot. And progesterone suppositories and pills and minivelle patches.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sy Le at IVFMD.
IVF cycle was $8000. Medications were $4700. TESE procedure (not Dr. Le) $2000. Day of costs (anesthesia, embryo freezing) $1700

when we began they [IVFMD] could only do transfers in the Irving clinic so our embryos were there but I believe they can do that in their new facility in Arlington now as well. the clinic is clean, modern, and equipt with everything needed. I loved having my early sonograms there...we spent around $20k on IVF with ICSI, including 3 embryo transfers resulting in my 3 children...[Nurses] kind, knowledgeable, patient, and became a friend.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Sy Le at IVFMD?
although Dr. Le has many patients, he always knew my husband and I, our details, and from the very beginning he told us he predicted 3 children for us. I was very selfish and said I would be beyond grateful for 1, but since he was asking, I wanted 4. Dr. Le was right, we have 3 beautiful healthy children. He always took the time to answer all of my questions and always drew charts and diagrams which helped me because I am a very visual learner. Dr. Le is an amazing doctor and holds a very special place in my heart.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD. (Assigned nurse: Gaby)
kind, knowledgeable, patient, and became a friend.
How was your experience with Sy Le at IVFMD?
Dr Le is very open, patient, kind, caring and compassionate. I feel that he is dedicated to helping families achieve their dreams of children. He takes such care in everything he does. I will never forget him during our 2 frozen embryos transfers, he took every step to protect our embryos and make sure his placement was perfect. He did practice transfers with me each time so he knew exactly how to navigate my body and where to place our embryos before the actual transfer. He does not do anything carelessly, wrecklessly or without purpose. I never felt rushed with Dr. Le. and I wholeheartedly trust his opinion, knowledge, skill, and intent. He is a believer of God and gives Him credit above himself. Dr Le also has a great sense of humor, calming bedside nature and all around good personality. His protocols are perfected, he knows what he is doing. He strives to achieve a healthy single pregnancy and out of 3 transfers, we have 3 healthy, perfect, beautiful babies. Without Dr. Le I do not believe this would have been medically possible for my husband and I. God has blessed Dr. Le, he is a fertility genius.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Sy Le at IVFMD?
trust him, he knows what he is doing.
Describe the protocols Sy Le used in your cycles at IVFMD and their degree of success.
our only option was IVF with ICSI. I did a drug protocol in 2010 that I can't remember everything to list it here, it was so much medication, oral, vaginal, injections, patches, all of it (Lupron, progesterone, etc.). when it was finally time for my egg retrieval, I had 23 eggs. They also had to retrieve sperm from my husband and they got 3 vials. They were able to inciminate 14 eggs, after 5 days we had 6 embryos. We transferred 2 and froze 4, in sets of 2's. 2 years after our first baby (healthy girl) I went back to Dr. Le, got on a drug protocol that began with birth control to gain control of my cycle, then went to oral, vaginal & patch hormones (progesterone, Vivel and a few others). Dr. Le completed our transfer of 2 frozen/thawed embryos and I got pregnant with 1 baby. 2 years after I had my second baby (healthy boy) I went back to Dr. Le and repeated that entire protocol using our last 2 frozen embryos and had our last baby a healthy boy. if we had more embryos I would continue the process!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Sy Le at IVFMD.
we spent around $20k on IVF with ICSI, including 3 embryo transfers resulting in my 3 children.
Describe Sy Le's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD.
Dr Le told my husband and me that he would not transfer more than 2 embryos because it's not responsible and lowers your chances for a healthy pregnancy due to higher chance of multiples resulting in higher risk pregnancies. He let it completely be our choice to do 1 or 2 embryos.
