How was your experience with Donald Menya at Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy?
I was nervous to meet a male doctor but after our first meeting I knew he was the doctor I wanted. He felt I had PCOS and explained what it presented like in my body, including drawing pictures of what a hormone cycle would look like. We moved on to tests to confirm. He started me on meds and was always positve that he would help us get pregnant. Follow up appointment are also fantastic, Dr Menya asks thoughtful questions and takes the time to ask more then just medical questions. Dr Menya also diagnosed me with endo and compleated my surgery. From diagnosis to surgery to post surgery Dr Menya and staff was availabe to answer my questions and put me at ease. He is fantastic and I dream of the day he hands me my child.

Strength of the clinic [Kaldas Center for Fertility, Surgery, and Pregnancy] is the staff and the atmosphere. It has a very peaceful, spa-like waiting room, stocked with water, keurig and cookies. Weakness is the cost and the financial department. It was more difficult than it should be to get proper records for FSA and tax purposes.... There is one main fertility nurse, Kate, who I spoke to for all my medication and next steps. She was incredibly sensitive and easy to work with. I can't say enough about her! There are also other nurses who handle all the temperature checks/ weight checks, etc. They were also fabulous!
