Describe your experience with MetroHealth.
Too soon to tell, but Metrohealth is massively less expensive than Cleveland Clinic or UH.
For prepay prices, IUIs run $420 per cycle, follicular ultrasounds are $100, post coital test is $50. Semen analysis is $150 - which is by far the least expensive of any other clinic in Cleveland (including the andrology supply lab which charges $165).
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bryan Hecht at MetroHealth?
Dr. Hecht remembered the little details about our case after only our first meeting. He also is incredibly responsive on MyChart.
Describe your experience with your nurse at MetroHealth. (Assigned nurse: Melinda)
Melinda is wonderful and will work with you - particularly around your work schedule.
How was your experience with Bryan Hecht at MetroHealth?
Dr. Hecht is caring, but explains things frankly and directly (which I appreciate). He is action oriented and comes up with a plan to handle the unique circumstances of your case. It's too early to tell yet whether treatment will work as I'm mid cycle and just finished my first round of Femara.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bryan Hecht at MetroHealth?
Make sure you are prepared and understand the costs associated with infertility. At our first visit, since we are self pay, Dr. Hecht provided us a list of costs of treatment. These costs rise dramatically if you have Metro bill your insurance first. Follicular ultrasounds run $100, IUI are $420 (plus 1-3 ultrasounds as aforementioned).
