Describe the protocols Martin Bastuba used in your cycles at Male Fertility & Sexual Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
After a physical evaluation it was assumed I was born without a vas deferens. He then ordered bloodwork and an ultrasound to make sure everything else indicated I in fact created sperm. After the test results came back, we we're in the clear to proceed with surgery. The surgery went smoothly and multiple vials of Sperm/ Tissue were successfully recovered. Our meetings we're brief and limited to a few, but we got in, found the problem, and got out with exactly what we wanted.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Not much criteria to go on, but seemed like they could use another staff member to help in the office. Response times were longer than desired, and seems like the person in charge of our request, happened to not be there.
Describe your experience with Male Fertility & Sexual Medicine Specialists.
The clinic is shared with another company, which can be a little confusing. The wait times we're not bad, but I don't feel I was given much direction thoroughly on what to expect next, or what I was to go through at that time. Found myself without detailed answers often
