My final round was prepaid then lab [at Partners for Fertility and IVF] destroyed eggs thru negligence and final transfer was canceled with no refund to me for their error...It was not crowded- now I know why. Front desk staff were the best part of the experience. Lab staff was either grossly negligent or just negligent in handling eggs and embryos. Did not feel they were competent at all.

She [Dr. Nancy Durso] was fine. Just no personality, warmth or bedside manner. I liked the small clinic and specifically avoided the region's gigantic fertility machine...She doesn't talk or explain more than the minimum necessary. Be your own advocate!...At time they were a very small operation. One office woman and one medical assistant. Both those other two wow were fantastic! Kept me there rather than give a larger operation a try

Dr. [Durso] failed to disclose that she didn't have the ability to biopsy d5 embryos for PGS testing because she doesn't have the appropriate equipment... Only use her for IUI, not IVF.

How was your experience with Nancy Durso at Partners for Fertility and IVF?
Dr Durso was very good when we were undergoing IUIs, and we did have a child. When we were ready for a second child, we needed to do IVF and chose PGS testing to get our best possible chance for a successful pregnancy. She pushed us into testing on d3 and transferring on d5 and never disclosed that she did not have the equipment to test the embryos on d5. I would not recommend her for IVF treatment based on this experience.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nancy Durso at Partners for Fertility and IVF?
Only use her for IUI, not IVF.
