CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

She [Dr. Emelia Bachman] is very compassionate and greets me warmly whenever we see her. She remembers details about us when I wouldn't expect. And she always calls within a day of when I ask the coordinators to speak to her and she answers my questions fully...I think she has great bedside manner and cares a lot about the success of her patients. The doctors at RAD all consult with each other and it makes me feel reassured that I'm in good hands and getting good care
I often left [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] with questions after my ultrasounds because the nurses wouldn't comment on how I was responding, they would just measure my follicles. But then I had an ultrasound with Dr. Neithardt on a Sunday and she was more willing to answer those questions...We had a miscommunication with the genetic counselor about the pgd process which ended up delaying our cycle, and it didn't seem like all the other clinicians were up to date on where we were in that process, but she quickly corrected it and has been great and helpful otherwise

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dont have expectations of what your diagnosis will be, what your treatment plan will be, or when you may get pregnant. That's only setting yourself up for disappointment. And come to every appointment with questions written down since it's hard to get an appointment
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
She is very compassionate and greets me warmly whenever we see her. She remembers details about us when I wouldn't expect. And she always calls within a day of when I ask the coordinators to speak to her and she answers my questions fully
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
We were diagnosed with male factor infertility, got referred to a urologist. And then started IVF with pgs/pgd. I was on follistim and clomid, and had a lot of follicles but only got 8 eggs, and 2 made it to the blastocyst stage. I'm waiting to talk to Dr. Bachman about how our 2nd cycle may be different
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They're caring and answer questions during your exams, I always felt like I knew what was going on after an exam except during my IVF monitoring. I often left with questions after my ultrasounds because the nurses wouldn't comment on how I was responding, they would just measure my follicles. But then I had an ultrasound with Dr. Neithardt on a Sunday and she was more willing to answer those questions
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The portal system is helpful, they are very organized and systematic which puts me at ease. I wish the doctors had more availability but that's pretty common. The coordinators are very responsive to portal messages, they hardly ever answer the phone though
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
so far we've paid about 20,000 not including medications
Describe Emelia Bachman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
She strongly believes in SET

I think he [Dr. Ronald Feinberg] is thoughtful and takes the time to listen. During the consult visits where I do see him, I never feel rushed. While he's quick to suggest IVF, he doesn't pressure you into a decision. We chose to try IUI first and he was understanding and supportive...Know that while he may be overseeing your treatment, you may not see him much...You may go through a whole cycle and not see your doctor...Gonal F 300 mg with continuous clomid. It was described as efficient with less daily shots. It did not produce desired results for me.
Wish there was more consistency [at RAD Fertility] in treating providers (i.e. seeing the same PA or NP during monitoring so can comment on changes and know you vs what numbers are in the chart). Also wish there was built-in follow up with doctors following cycles. If you want to see your doctor or have follow-up, it's up to you to schedule an appointment. WIth all that said, I've been pleased with RAD. They do seem to care and are in this journey with you. Great after-hours on-call - tell you to call and say its an emergency if you have ANY question or concern during cycle so you never have to feel like you are going to make a mistake or screw it up.

Know that while he may be overseeing your treatment, you may not see him much.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
While everyone is so nice, you see so many different NPs and PAs each time you go in. It's hard to feel like anyone knows you or your history/issues. You may go through a whole cycle and not see your doctor.
Describe the protocols Ronald Feinberg used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
RAD uses a consultation team approach to decide each person's protocol. However, they do seem to use similar protocol on everyone. Gonal F 300 mg with continuous clomid. It was described as efficient with less daily shots. It did not produce desired results for me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Efficient and usually timely. There are a ton and honestly don't know one from another (except for Lindsay - she rocks!) . All polite and professional. Most communication is through portal. Hard to get answers on the phone.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Efficient and great hours - open almost every day and early monitoring appointments. Wish there was more consistency in treating providers (i.e. seeing the same PA or NP during monitoring so can comment on changes and know you vs what numbers are in the chart). Also wish there was built-in follow up with doctors following cycles. If you want to see your doctor or have follow-up, it's up to you to schedule an appointment.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Well-oiled machine. The earliest hours (I think, 630-730) are first come, first serve. After that, it's by appointment but they may be backed up. "IVF monitoring weekends" are 730-930 first come, first serve. I'm usually at RAD for 30-45 minutes for monitoring, including wait time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Covered partly by insurance so unsure. Meds about 5,000-6,000 out-of-pocket for a retrieval cycle.
Describe Ronald Feinberg's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Majority of transfers are eSET. Was explained that only in special circumstances would they do multiple embryo transfer as it causes risk to mother and baby.

Dr Bachman is both knowledgeable and kind hearted. Every step of the way she asks if you are okay and understand. Also she is compassionate. I have never met a doctor I trusted more. When something in my protocol changes she calls to explain and make sure I’m still okay with it. I’m about to start my first cycle in a couple weeks so their is so much I still can’t answer just yet but she is awesome. I’ll be upset when I do graduate to a regular obgyn after my treatment.
The only weakness I have found is the hours of operation [at RAD- Newark]. With the amount of appointments the latest is 4:00 there should be one day where appointments can be made later. The one good thing is you are assigned to a couple coordinators depending your plan of action for treatment so you get familiar with who is coordinating your care.... My re only does single embryo transfer. It is safer for mom and baby

I had two cycles of gonal F 100 and got pregnant both times, unfortunately both were ectopic. Now Im working with Dr. Bachman on diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy and considering IVF for future cycles.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr Bachman is great, almost perfect. My only complaint is not knowing I had the option to freeze the eggs from my retrieval instead of fertilizing them all at once. Now I'm left with the decision of what to do with all these embryos and because I feel morally obligated to them I have faced a lot of stress and anxiety knowing I will most likely have a huge family when originally I only wanted to add 1 child from IVF, not 5 (potentially). This has also created a huge financial burden for us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Discuss your options so you're not left with a bunch of embryos that you may not be sure what to do about.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr Bachman does a great job answering questions and has a warm friendly demeanor. She doesn't make you feel rushed during appointments.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Since we had been trying for a couple years and I was really struggling emotionally from the infertility, we decided to skip IUI after Dr Bachman explained the low success rate. She said I may be a candidate for mini-stim IVF which would be comparable in cost to the few cycles of IUI that would probably be necessary to conceive, so that's what we did. The mini-stim cycle produced 7 eggs, 6 embroys, and so far 2 babies with 3 embryos left.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Everyone is great at RAD...friendly and knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The pricing is on the high end and for whatever reason they would not gives us a military discount even though they advertise it on their website. Before becoming pregnant I remeber sitting in the waiting room and feeling bad about all the magazines with pregnant celebrities on top of my doctor being pregnant as well. While I wasn't bitter and of course no one can avoid seeing pregnant women, when you're struggling to get pregnant it always stings a little when you see others have what you desperately want. I also was against my future children being conceived by my husband masterbating to porn but they would not allow me to go into the collection room with him. Not all couples are comfortable with pornographic material but luckily my husband was prepared with our own material. I know men are visual but as a Christian I find "the porn room " to be disturbing. (My term, not theirs) Besides that, the clinic is clean and the staff is friendly.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I had to take time off work so it was never convenient. Even when I got there at opening time there was always a wait.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Initial consult was $150. I think the retrieval and up to 3 transfers was about $9000. The testing was about $1000, and meds were about $3200. For my second FET, the cost was $4200, meds were $900 and testing (sono) was maybe $300.
Describe Emelia Bachman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
While I wasn't adamant about multiple embryo tranfer, Dr Bachman did explain that for my age and health single embryo transfer was preferred.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Each time we met with Dr. Bachman she was welcoming and understanding of the stressful situation. Through testing, diagnosis of unexplained fertility, and treatment she explained what to expect from each process. There were plenty of visits to the office over the entire time-frame but we didn't see Dr. Bachman at each visit. This was perfectly acceptable to me as the remainder of the staff was just as welcoming and competent as Dr. Bachman. Our entire process was long due to scheduling restraints on our end as well as a maternity leave for Dr. Bachman. While she was out on leave we decided to take some time off from the process. When Dr. Bachman returned, we picked up where were at and eventually continued on through a successful treatment process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
It is a long and stressful process, with testing, diagnosis and through treatment, however having a great team to work with is essential to providing you with support the entire way.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
A friend recommended Dr. Bachman to me and my family. She was warm and welcoming the first time around in 2015. We recently went back for our second consultation in 2019 and she was just as great as before.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Theresa Keene)
Through all of the visits the nursing staff was great. Through all of the visits I didn't have a staff member that wasn't proficient at their job. Wait times for appointments were typically short and the appointment times were accommodating with my schedule.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The entire process was long based on our schedule and other factors, however the clinic worked closely with us along the way. All my questions from finance, insurance to procedures were answered along the way. I would recommend this clinic to anyone that is having fertility issues. The use of their patient portal made communication with any team member quick and easy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Based on my insurance I had copays that needed to be paid but a lot of the testing and treatment was covered by my insurance. The second time around my insurance has changed so it will be more out of pocket up front but overall will cost about the same as it did the first time based on premiums I was paying before. Some of the prescriptions (progesterone suppositories) weren't covered but the office worked with me to help find an alternative pharmacy to help lower the cost.

Dr. Bachman goes into great detail about your treatment plan and if you have any concerns you can reach out through the portal ... She did a full lab work up and I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. We started off with the lowest dose of Fermara and timed intercourse which resulted in a negative pregnancy test. We tried two more months of Fermara and increased the dosage each time as well as did IUIs both months.
Each doctor has their own patient coordinator that handles appointments/procedures and patient questions. There is also a clinical team [RAD] of nurses and physician assistants that handle the IUIs and follow up labs and appointments. ... The nursing staff is just as good. They are great with staying up to date with each case. ... The appointments are flexible and they always find time to squeeze you in. I honestly do not have anything negative to say.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I cannot say enough good things about Dr.Bachman. She truly is an exceptional doctor. She's getting busier with patients but she treats you as though you are the only one on her schedule. Dr. Bachman goes into great detail about your treatment plan and if you have any concerns you can reach out through the portal. She's even called me after hours from her cell phone to talk to me regarding some issues. I wish she could be my regular OBGYN as well. I always ask her if she wants to be all my doctor's in one!!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
You will not be disappointed! You may have to wait for a few weeks to get an initial consultation but it is worth it. She is very honest but caring at the same time. Such a down to earth physician.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Bachman is so sweet. I left my initial consultation feeling like I have known her for years. She doesn't rush the appointments and explains every option available to you and gives her honest opinion with what will be the best treatment for you as a person. She definitely cares about her patients.

She did a full lab work up and I was diagnosed with unexplained fertility. We started off with the lowest dose of Fermara and timed intercourse which resulted in a negative pregnancy test. We tried two more months of Fermara and increased the dosage each time as well as did IUIs both months. Both resulted in a negative pregnancy test. I asked if we should try another month but Dr.Bachman did not want me to keep spending a lot of money as the success rates are still about 20%. Dr. Bachman informed me of a study that was coming up for IVF as my insurance does not cover any IVF or any fertility treatments for that matter. She was trying to help with the IVF cost by enrolling me into the study but unfortunately I could not take the specific medication that was being used. Now, I am trying to get money together for an IVF cycle. I really liked that Dr.Bachman didn't want to keep trying other things and wanted to get right to the best course of treatment.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Theresa Keene is my patient coordinator)
Each doctor has their own patient coordinator that handles appointments/procedures and patient questions. There is also a clinical team of nurses and physician assistants that handle the IUIs and follow up labs and appointments. The doctors are awesome. I have not had one doctor that I did not like. They are all very helpful. The nursing staff is just as good. They are great with staying up to date with each case. The clinical team always gets their direction from one of the four main fertility doctors and will review any possible med changes which Dr. Bachman must approve. The appointments are flexible and they always find time to squeeze you in. I honestly do not have anything negative to say.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I may have answered some of this in the previous question. The appointments for the medicated cycles/IUIs/ultrasounds/day 3 work ups are usually with the clinical team which consists of nurses and physician assistants. They get their direction from one of the four main fertility doctors and will review any possible med changes with your main provider for approval. Everyone at the office is very friendly. The patient portal is the best way to get in touch with any of the doctor's/nurses/IVF coordinators/all other staff. You always get a response no later then the same day, usually mostly minutes after you send the message.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Roughly $1800 per medicated cycle monitoring with IUI- tried 2 times $880 for medicated monitoring cycle with timed intercourse- tried once Progesterone and trigger shot- 3 times for a total of $120-150 each time My health insurance will cover office visits and workup for infertility diagnosis but co-pays is $35 each office visit/ultrasound. I lost track of how many times. Saving up for a mini-stim IVF cycle which is roughly$12,000 or a regular IVF cycle which is roughly $15000 and up.
Describe Emelia Bachman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
This clinic only allows one embryo to be transferred at a time which I didn't agree with at first because I thought you have better chances with transferring two and I know many fertility doctors that will transfer more then one but it makes sense why they only allow one. It wouldn't change my opinion about the office or keep me from going there.

I honestly love this group. I would make no changes. I highly recommend them to my friends or really people I just meet and it comes up that they are having infertility issues. If I had to nit pick I would say my only complaint would be the floors in the exam rooms could be a little cleaner and that’s just Bc my kids always drop stuff on the floor like there toys etc. and they always have hair on them, but I mean it’s an office for mainly women so it’s to be excpected.

It turns out that I have stage 3 endometriosis and had a 3.5 inch cyst on my ovary. Dr. Neithardt performed a laparoscopic surgery to help these issues. I was fully informed before, during, and after the surgery. Due to the severity of my endo, we all would have liked to move straight to IVF ... We would have loved if she was the one doing our IUI. ... Dr. Neithardt genuinely cares for me and my wife.
Strengths: there are two offices (Newark & Wilmington), Wilmington [Repro Assoc of DE] has hours starting as early as 6:30 AM, my doctor was very thorough in explaining any procedures, the financial team broke everything down for me in the beginning, they use an online portal to communicate and most responses were very quick. Weaknesses: Some nurses are a little cold, the doctor does not perform the IUI procedure.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Before seeking out help to get pregnant, I had never visited a gyno. I had major anxiety, but Dr. Neithardt put me at ease. I was thoroughly evaluated before going through any pregnancy planning. This was great because my wife and I were still on the fence about starting the journey to build a family, but knew that we needed more information before we could make a decision. It turns out that I have stage 3 endometriosis and had a 3.5 inch cyst on my ovary. Dr. Neithardt performed a laparoscopic surgery to help these issues. I was fully informed before, during, and after the surgery. Due to the severity of my endo, we all would have liked to move straight to IVF but we have to follow insurance guidelines. She was candid with my chances of conceiving doing IUI, but very hopeful and emphatic to our situation. The only downfall is that we don't get to see her during each appointment. We would have loved if she was the one doing our IUI.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
You are in good hands!

Dr. Bachman always spoke to us openly and honestly... I felt that I could be frank and blunt with her, as is my nature. When she saw disappointment or fear in us, she always guided us toward the positive but kept expectation realistic.... I underwent Mini Stem. She gave me a low does of injections and kept me under close watch.... She is very good at answering or restating something that doesn't make sense to you. Sometime i was a bit overwhelmed and couldn't think of any questions at them time. I would later realize i was full of question and Dr Bachman was always willing to meet with us again to go over the information once more.
Sometime the click [RAD-Newark] assumes you know something when you don't. for example no one told me they were ordering my medication and one day i got a call from a pharmacy asking me for $3,000. I was so confused and had to call RAD. once they explained what was going on i felt better, but i would have liked to been kept in the loop a little more.... They were always very kind and answered any questions i had. If they saw i was nervous they would talk to me and calm me by joking with me or distracting me. They took an interest in my husband and i by asking us questions about our hobbies and always remember them when we came back.

She [Dr. Barbara McGuirk] is very friendly and cares about her patients and their feelings. She suggests you to take care of your diet and recommends doing whole 30. She even shares her own receipe of an every day morning juice with you that can help your immunization system.... She is insisting on the fact that I have an endometriosis but I do not buy this because I don’t have severe pain or something. We talked about it and I have never been convinced by her explanations.
The only issue [at RAD-Newark] is that sometimes you need to wait even an hour in the office to see her even though you have an appointment and no one cares about it. Moreover, the coordinator of Dr. McGuirk forgets to send my prescriptions and to set up appointments for me to do my blood works and this happened to me a couple of times. That makes me worried to miss something and I need to take notes to make sure I can follow up every thing by myself.

How was your experience with Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
She is very helpful and answers every single questions that you have. She is very professional and knows what she is doing. She explains every thing in an understandable manner and supports you if you feel down or worried. She never forces you to do something and always respects your personal choice as long as it does not risk your health. However, I sometines felt that she is suspicious on fertility issues in everyone because of her field of experties. She is insisting on the fact that I have an endometriosis but I do not buy this because I don’t have severe pain or something. We talked about it and I have never been convinced by her explanations.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Ask as much questions as you need to be clear about what’s going on, she won’t do it automatically. Be careful with the coordinator, she forgets lots of things.

She is very friendly and cares about her patients and their feelings. She suggests you to take care of your diet and recommends doing whole 30. She even shares her own receipe of an every day morning juice with you that can help your immunization system. The only issue is that sometimes you need to wait even an hour in the office to see her even though you have an appointment and no one cares about it. Moreover, the coordinator of Dr. McGuirk forgets to send my prescriptions and to set up appointments for me to do my blood works and this happened to me a couple of times. That makes me worried to miss something and I need to take notes to make sure I can follow up every thing by myself.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Mari Esquilin)
She is kind but she forgets almost 70% of what she needs to do and then I have to call her (and she never replies) and leave her messages (either online or by phone) and wait for her to reply and take action. This is inconveninet, beleive me.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
It is clean and beautiful. With a good atmosphere and tea and coffee that is suitable for the long waiting times you will spend to see the Dr. The staff, however, are friendly, respectful, and helpful.

I had to pay a lot for some diagnostic procedures like HSG (~$300) even though I have never tried to get pregnant and I am not sure how neccesary was doing something like HSG for me. I pay a 20$ copay for each visit and overall I think I paid over $2k since 2016 for everything.

Once I was warmly welcomed by Dr. Neithardt the nervousness instantly disappeared. She was kind, gentle and sympathetic.... Dr. Neithardt is so sweet, soft, gentle, and very aware of your feelings. All my experiences with her have been wonderful from day one through all my continued service with her now. I could not have made a better choice in picking a doctor that cares from the heart.... Dr. Neithardt will have you leaving with a huge smile letting you know it is hope. She is very genuine.
Clinic [RAD-Newark] is very professional, staff (some) is very nice, and welcoming.They make you feel like part of the family. Hardly ever much of a wait time to be seen, they are very prompt and attentive to your needs.... I was initially assigned to one coordinator, she was very short, and expressed no real interest in helping me...always pushing me off to someone else with questions. After sometime I became connected with my current coordinator, and I must say, she is hard to reach by phone, but she does respond to emails, and voicemails when she can. She got what I needed done to move forward with IVF. Others just didn't show as much interest.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
During my first appointment I did not know exactly what to expect. Once I was warmly welcomed by Dr. Neithardt the nervousness instantly disappeared. She was kind, gentle and sympathetic. I visited a clinic once before and left very unhappy, and sad, felt like a failure etc....That never happened with Dr. Neithardt is human, she understands, she listens and is there to help you. She has a very high patience level..she explains all treatment, services etc...all in full detail, so it does not leave you wondering if pregnancy is even possible for you, she makes you feel as if you have a strong chance. Visiting RAD is the best choice my spouse and I have made.

Dr. Bachman tries to ensure that every step of your process is as easy as she can make it. She tries to prepare you as best she can for the next steps. She stops to check how you and your partner are feeling. And she occasionally asks how things went when she wasn’t there to make sure everything is as good for you and your partner as it can be.... My Dr. will not do multiple embryo transfer because she feels if there is more than 1 embryo in the uterus, the embryos then compete for what they need reducing the chances of having a healthy baby
The clinic [RAD-Newark] really tries to accommodate as much as possible. They have multiple ways of reaching you to remind you of an appointment. They have a portal that makes it easy to get in touch with anyone in the practice who you need to speak with. And the billing department tries to work with your insurance as much as they can to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.... They are all as compassionate and concerned as Dr. Bachman is with both my progress through the process as well as my contentment with my experience.

It might take a while to get your first appointment, but be patient. Once you get passed that first appointment, everything runs much smoother.

Dr. Bachman is very conscious of how you feel. She understands the frustration of not being able to conceive, the pain you may be going through due to your medical history, and she tries to make you as comfortable as possible throughout your treatments.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I didn’t ask specifically why I am on the protocol I am on, but I do know that based on my estrogen levels, Dr. Bachman recommended that my husband and I do a frozen transfer instead of a fresh transfer to minimize the risk of my getting sick after the embryo is implanted.

Dr Feinberg is extremely knowledgeable in his field. His discussions made it clear he stays on the cutting edge of research to help as many people as possible achieve their dream of becoming a parent.... The first round was on a low dose of stims and no follicles were triggered. Second round was even lower dose which works for some but didnt work for us. Third round much higher dose and for the remaining 4 we were at the top of the limit for the volume of drugs we were taking. Ultimately it was successful however our last round we did not get any eggs at retreival. We believe the one good embryo we got was around the middle of our 7 cycles
All of the staff involved in our treatments [at RAD-Newark] were incredible! Such compassion and caring was shown in each and every appointment. They became like family and we missed them when treatment was over and we were pregnant with our little girl! ... Fantastic staff and doctors. Very knowledgeable. Create such a caring environment. Weakness is that i through self search found a way to buy the medications much cheaper yet they did not guide me to that.

How was your experience with Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr Feinberg is extremely knowledgeable in his field. His discussions made it clear he stays on the cutting edge of research to help as many people as possible achieve their dream of becoming a parent. Even if he knew he or his clinic couldnt help, he would recommend someone who could. Dr Feinberg was compassionate yet very factual and erred on the side of caution. While we hung in there for 7 rounds to make our daughter lily, he spoke of the facts which were it was unlikely at my age (45) we would achieve this with our own egg. We did, but his facts were truthful. He was very gentle in always letting us know the statistics and alternative approaches yet still supported us when we kept going. When there was a small issue during one round of biopsys, Dr Feinberg called us himself to explain and heavily supported us to make sure we had a positive outcome. Dr Feinbergs teams treatment identified I had cervical cancer before our first embryo transfer, and that ultimately could have saved my life. Their quick action on what they saw led to diagnosis and treatment within a matter of months.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
To know he will give all knowledge based on facts that could be overwhelming at times but he is very gentle and happy to go over it as many times as necessary to explain all options. Whilst his view may not be what you want it to be, it will be realistic and based on prior outcomes. He wont mislead nor hold punches.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr Feinberg showed care and compassion for our journey. He was very to the point about our chances yet gave the information in a caring manner. He asked about our daughter once she was born and when we had appointment with him and she was in the room, he picked her up and held her and took time with her.

Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Fantastic staff and doctors. Very knowledgeable. Create such a caring environment. Weakness is that i through self search found a way to buy the medications much cheaper yet they did not guide me to that. Also i have a friend who went there and her 2nd retreival didnt go well and she never heard back from them and herself never contacted them again as she was in tears on the fact she couldnt move forward with that approach. It would have been nice if they made contact again just to check on her and remind her there were other options she could explore if she wanted to.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ronald Feinberg at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Approx $22,000 for two IVF cycles to retrieve and use own eggs. Approx $22,000 for egg donor (8 eggs) plus PGS
Describe Ronald Feinberg's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).

She [Dr. McGuirk] is a very holistic doctor. She doesn’t just treat the fertility issues. She also points out personal health ideas (juicing, whole 30) to help heal/treat the whole patient. She is honest and open. She’s a little dry at times but she knows her stuff!...She was open and honest with me about my endometriosis, possibility of getting pregnant due to my age, she answered my mom’s questions, and prayed with me before my surgeries and after my miscarriage.
They [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] are AMAZING! If I could go there instead of my regular OB, I would go every week! I LOVE them!!! They are very personable and genuine! They walk you through the whole process, share in your journey, and are just as excited when you finally get pregnant...Mari is a great coordinator! She answers all my crazy questions, works hard to get me appointments that fit around teaching, and she was a patient at RAD. She knows exactly what you’re going through! There are so many great PA’s and nurses at RAD! Even on my worst day they stopped everything to make sure I was going to be okay. Love them!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
She was open and honest with me about my endometriosis, possibility of getting pregnant due to my age, she answered my mom’s questions, and prayed with me before my surgeries and after my miscarriage.
Describe the protocols Barbara McGuirk used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
My 1st time with Dr. McGuirk, I had surgery to remove my endometriosis and polyps. I did a round of clomid and was pregnant with timed intercourse. I waited a while after my daughter was born and went back to Dr. McGuirk to try again. Again, we did surgery to remove any endometriosis and polyps that I had. I did 2 rounds of clomid and timed intercourse to see if we could get pregnant on our own. Unfortunately, we weren’t as lucky as before. We moved on to IUI and had some success. My first IUI resulted in a chemical pregnancy. My second IUI resulted in pregnancy. Unfortunately, at my 11 week appointment there was no heartbeat and a growth was found on the baby. After the biopsy following the D&E , it was found to be a mutation of the Down syndrome gene. Once my body levels out again after a few months, we’ll meet with a genetics counselor before doing any further procedures. This will give us more information about the possibility of a healthy pregnancy.

As a state employee, most of my procedures were covered or mostly covered under my insurance. My IVF on the other hand will not be. Hoping they pass a bill to allow state employees better coverage before we move on to IVF.

How was your experience with Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr.McGuirk doesnt just start giving medicine she fully evaluates you. She wants to make sure you and your partner are both taking care of yourselves not just for you but for the future your child. I started out not knowing alot about fertility only that I have been unsuccessful and getting pregnant. I had seen a fertility doctor once prior to going to Reproductive associates of Delaware and I never went back I left that appointment crying and immediately got ahold of Reproductive associates of Delaware and set up an appointment there. My first visit with Dr. McGuirk was very informative she wasn't just going to give me medicine and start trying to see if that would work,she sent me to have tons of tests which I am so very thankful for because we found out I had polyps and set up surgery to have them removed which was also done by Dr.McGuirk. She has helped me to start losing weight for the sake of a healthier baby and life. She has been blunt about what needs to happen and she is very kind about it but doesn't sugar coat things which is what I wanted. Every visit we get closer to treatment, she takes her time with me she doesn't rush you out she listens and answers questions to the fullest she wants nothing left unexplained!

She wants you to leave everything to her She insists.

There are no weaknesses! Expect to be treated like family! It is the only appointments I actually like going to. You will not meet a person who is anything but friendly. My first visit I was nervous considering I had went to a fertility doctor once prior and it was terrible they made me feel that it was hopeless. My first visit however at RAD was seriously what I needed. From the moment you walk in you feel like family.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Bachman has been amazing since the moment I met her. She instantly made me feel calm - when all I was feeling before I first met her was frustration and disappointment. She helped reassure me that we would get to the bottom of my fertility issues. When diagnosed with stage 3 endo - she presented me facts in a simple straightforward manner that you can’t help but appreciate. We ended up needing IVf and had a second trimester loss. Dr. Bachman personally called me the day we found out we lost the baby to send her condolences and to help support us. I could go on for days about how truly empathetic and supporting Dr. Bachman has been to me in this journey In regards to recommending her to my best friend... I already have... twice. Two of my girlfriends were having fertility issues and are now also seeing dr. Bachman, and they love her as much as I do !

I qualified for a “mini” atom cycle since my AMH level was so high. I was maintained on pretty low dose follistim and had a lupron trigger. We ended up being able to retrieve 28 eggs, 22 were mature and 20 were fertilized. I had considered being involved in a trial study - but the starting dose was double the dose of medication I remained on the entire time for my stims. I’m very thankful Dr. Bachman and I were able to talk about potential risks of doing the study and that we settled on the mini stim

Once I was able to get my BMI in the correct range we started care immediately. Our first step [with Dr Adrienne Neithardt] was to wait for my first cycle to start and then came the many rounds of blood work and pelvic ultrasounds. While this was happening, we met with the genetics counselor to go over our donor pick to make sure he would be a viable donor for us. We were also set up with a speciality pharmacy for the ovidrel that we would need. Once the egg was the proper size, we were giving a tight window to administer the ovidrel at home.
I cannot highly enough for the entire staff at RAD. They were extremely non judgmental regarding our LGBT status. They worked with us on appointment times that could work within our busy schedules. Everyone in the office knew our names and would greet us while we were in the office. They were well organized and always on top of all of our case needs. I could expect to hear back from them within an hour or so of asking any question.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
While we only saw her at a few visits, she was overwhelmingly cheerful and positive. She was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any and all questions we had. We always left the office confident that my care was in the right hands. She gave us the confidence that our treatment would work and that we would be building our family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Don't expect to see her at every appointment, but rest assured that she has a good eye on your treatment plan at all times.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Every single person in the office knew our names, the activities outside of the doctors office, and would frequently see the team at community events.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.

We were also set up with a speciality pharmacy for the ovidrel that we would need. Once the egg was the proper size, we were giving a tight window to administer the ovidrel at home. After that we were set up with our insemination day. Everyone in the office wished us luck. The two week wait seemed like forever, and unfortunately the first try didn't take for us. Dr. Neithardt reassured us that it is totally normal and gave us the specific stats on how likely we were to get pregnant the first time and how that statistically rises the second time around as we "dial in the numbers" so to say. We repeated the process the next month and were lucky to recieve the phone call that we were pregnant after the next two week wait.

I could expect to hear back from them within an hour or so of asking any question.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
My only complaint about the office would be that, knowing my husband was the fertility issue, I still needed to go through a rigorous screening process before we could start the process of getting pregnant. I do realize that this is most likely fertility policy in general and not just their office. Their strengths far outweigh their weaknesses. I have never had a doctor whith such fast and efficient communication. I have never had a doctor greet me or my partner with such kindness and compassion. I have never had a doctor remember and ask about what I did over the weekend and seem genuinely interested in my response. I have never had a doctor that I would see in the community so frequently.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
It was expensive and while it was partially covered by insurance. While I dont remember the exact cost, I do remember that they were comparable to other locations. We also sat down with a financial staff member before starting to go over any and all associate costs.

Dr. Neithardt made sure to be clear in her communication with me and my partner, and to take the time to explain in a way that made sense to us. She also had a way of making us feel at ease through the different stages of the process. The only criticism I have is that I didn't get to work with her directly in the later stages. This was all communicated and completed by clinic staff and nurses.
This clinic [Reproductive Associates of DE-Wilmington] was friendly, informative, sensitive and great at the procedures they were completing. The only thing I would mention is the large number of staff working at any given time. it's hard to build some relationships when you see so many different staff members throughout the process.... The entire staff was helpful, friendly and handled my situation with care. I never felt uncomfortable or like the procedures being completed weren't necessary/for a purpose.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neithardt took the time to explain the science of the process, but in a way that related to me and my situation. Additionally, she made both my partner and I feel at ease as we went through each stage.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
This was over a year and a half ago at this point, but she did a variety of different tests to gauge the status of my eggs and cycle monitoring, as well as overall health of my body and liklihood of risks. She was able to determine that I did NOT need any medications to assist in my cycle or follicle growth, and was able to do the IUI unmedicated.

I personally spent approx. $5,000. This included co-pays, procedures, sperm donation, blood work, genetic testing and additional visits. That said, my insurance covered thousands more.

She [Dr. Bachman] was very compassionate, when we found out that my husband couldn't have children. She explained every process in detail and it was a pleasure to have her as a doctor. ... she was very positive even after we got results we didn't want. She gave us time to process everything. There was a time you could see that she felt bad to give us bad news but handled it very professionally and compassionately.
I believe the clinic [RAD] is a great clinic. I would so recommend them to anyone that needs help like we did. They communicate effectively and in a timely manner. They greet you and explain what they are going to do and what they are looking for. I was very happy with the service. ... The nursing team was great, they explained every test completely and how it was going to feel. They were really sweet and caring! I felt like a human being and was treated really nice.

Over the course of 4 IUIs, my treatment plan [with Dr. Adrienne Neithardt] remained relatively the same. I don't remember exactly, but took Femara leading up to the IUI, and an ovulating-stimulating drug. We had much success each time, with 1 to 2 mature follicles. The timing was perfect, but just not successful in the end. We decided to pursue IVF with our own frozen embryos (after doing PGS). I honestly forget the protocol but again, I responded extremely, with 18 eggs being retrieved, 16 of which were mature, 8 of which were able to be frozen between days 5 and 6. Her professionalism during the embryo transfer was beyond my expectations, and again, it was an extremely positive experience.
The nursing staff [at RAD-Newark] was amazing! Every single one of them were professional, extremely knowledgeable, positive, and fun.... You could go in when it was most convenient for you [for monitoring], or you could choose to go in during the monitoring hours. It was busy on certain days (most likely egg retrieval days), but they ALWAYS told you in advance. Regardless, a few times I brought a book, and would be called back before I could really get lost in the book anyway. It was very convenient; I never had trouble getting an appointment or being seen during monitoring hours.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
From the moment we entered Reproductive Associates of Delaware, Doctor Neithardt was warm and welcoming. She was hands-on throughout, even drawing diagrams to explain the process to a non-medical person such as myself. She encouraged us to be comfortable with all of our decisions, with zero pressure to do or not do a procedure. There were times that I almost wanted a decision made for me, but in the end her approach was very empowering. Every question was answered clearly, and I was very comfortable just being myself with her in every situation. When in a situation such as this, I feel it is very important to be honest with patients (whether good or bad), but to also be positive and encouraging, which she was to the fullest. These feelings of being positive and encouraged go a LONG way when you're in the midst of a such a difficult time!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I would tell them that even though you're in a difficult situation, to keep an open-mind, to listen, and be ready to feel empowered!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Doctor Neithardt is one of my favorite people on this planet. She set realistic expectations, and was extremely honest with myself and my husband, all while maintaining positive and engaging interactions. Even though we were at first categorized as "unexplained", she went over the benefits of a laparoscopy, without being pushy. She allowed us to make our own decisions, without feeling pressured or confused. She's amazing!

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).

Dr. Kovelaskey was a very caring and well mannered doctor. He never made me feel hopeless or unworthy. This also was a downfall because I was very hopeful that my cycle would be successful and it failed. The one time I felt more like a number was when he moved out of state in the middle of my cycle, which I understood the reasoning however it was difficult having your doctor changed in the middle of an IVF cycle.... I then had to switch to another doctor in the facility, which was very difficult.
The nursing staff [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] were very caring and gentle, however during my monitoring they did not provide much information on how things were progressing. I believe if I knew I was not responding to the medication like others responde I may have requested to cancel the cycle and start a new one the following month, rather then using up all my insurance benefits for a failed cycle.... there was a lot of miscommunication between the doctors, care coordinators, nurses, and billing.

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Kovalevsky was very caring and explained my infertility very well. Everytime I seen Dr. Kovalevsky I left the office on a positive note and a lot of hope. Unforuntantly, he left in the middle of my cycle to relocate to another state to be with family. I then had to switch to another doctor in the facility, which was very difficult.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I would advice them that if they did not understand or were not clear on something that is said to them to ask for him to explain it differently. Understanding infertility is hard and I had to ask him to repeat and explain things over many times.

Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Once it was thought that I had endometriosis I was scheduled for surgery to check to see if there was endometriosis, and to remove some cyst that were found during ultrasound. The surgery went very well, and they made me very comfortable (this was my first time ever having surgery). After surgery I was diagnosed with stage 3/4 endometriosis. At that time Dr. Kovalevsky informed us that our best option would be to do IVF. We started an IVF treatment with a medication protocol including various different bills and injections. I was monitored by ultrasound about every other day. It was determined that we would do a fresh transfer. About half way through the monitoring hr left the practice.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff were very caring and gentle, however during my monitoring they did not provide much information on how things were progressing. I believe if I knew I was not responding to the medication like others responde I may have requested to cancel the cycle and start a new one the following month, rather then using up all my insurance benefits for a failed cycle.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
When I first came to the clinic I was very hopeful. However, there was a lot of miscommunication between the doctors, care coordinators, nurses, and billing. Whenever I had a question I never knew who I was supposed to contact. My doctor gave me 2 options of 2 different medication protocols. This information was not received by the care coordinator for an unknown reason. When I attempted to explain the protocol I wanted there was a lot of confusion, and I gave up and took the protocol that they had in mind. This is frustrating because the cycle failed, and when I start a new cycle they will be using the other protocol that was offered. They believe I will respond better to this other medication protocol. After my failed cycle I also felt alone. I do not feel as if I was fully explained my next options and the reason my cycle failed. I finally requested an appointment and was explained my next steps.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I had insurance coverage when I started my IVF cycle. The insurance did not cover everything, and I maxed out my benefits. I had to take out a loan for 8,000 to cover the medication cost, as well as additional cost for IVF.
Describe George Kovalevsky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Dr. Kovalevsky would only do single embryo transfer.

If you want someone with a warm bedside manner she is the person to see.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neithardt was warm and kind. She knew that I had previously gone through fertility treatments, and that my first child died after being born prematurely. She was sensitive to my loss, and on the two visits when I had to bring my living daughter she was patient and kind. She is so positive about my chances of getting pregnant that even our failed cycle felt like another step in success. Fingers crossed!
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I am clomid resistant, so we de used to use Letrizol again (it worked to conceive my daughter.) We started at the same dose used to conceive my daughter, but with my recent weight loss I responded too well for IUI (6 follicles) so we cancelled that cycle. My most recent cycle with the lowest dose of Letrizol produced 2 follicles, we did two sessions of IUI after a trigger shot. Unfortunately we were not successful. I am starting the next round of baseline appointments and Letrizol (same low dose) in two days. Here’s hoping!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I have insurance that covers most fertility treatments, so I have a $20 copay per visit and an additional cost for each lab. So far I am probably in $480 in copays and lab payments since April.

I have done one retrieval cycle with Dr. Neithardt. This was a light stim, because I had some indicators that I would be a good responder (age and ovarian reserve were in my favor). On this protocol I only did about half the dosages, injections once a day instead of twice, etc. We wanted to avoid having a large number of "extra" embryos so this approach worked for us. In the end we still had a high number - 21 mature eggs, 19 fertilized, 15 made it to day 5/6 blastocyst.
I had only positive things to say about this clinic [Reproductive Associates of DE-Wilimington] after my first experience with them (IVF stimulation & retrieval and one FET). They worked well as a team, tried to accommodate my needs as much as possible, were always friendly, etc. By the time I was working with them again 1.5 - 2 years later, there had been some changes in their internal structure and processes which unfortunately caused a few problems for me as a patient.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neithardt was the best thing about working with this clinic. It's rare that I've found a doctor so respectful and happy to work with her patient (participatory medicine) as her, even when I consider non-fertility related areas of medicine. It is very important to me to fully understand my treatment plans and how each piece works. I also want my own ideas to be fully considered and either incorporated into the plan, or to have someone explain why that idea does not apply. Furthermore, I have run into some complications which cannot be fully explained by any of the testing performed, and Dr. Neithardt had the experience as well as the common-sense approach to work with me on how to approach these things - most doctors, in my experience, will not do this if they cannot see conclusive objective proof (such as a lab test result).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Ask every question you can think of and keep asking until you get an answer that makes sense to you. Take advantage of working with a doctor who will make sure you understand and are on the same page.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neithardt always clearly remembered all relevant details of my history and treatment plan whenever we met. Additionally, she took every concern or question I had seriously and treated me as a partner in my care, not a subject under her rule.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I have done one retrieval cycle with Dr. Neithardt. This was a light stim, because I had some indicators that I would be a good responder (age and ovarian reserve were in my favor). On this protocol I only did about half the dosages, injections once a day instead of twice, etc. We wanted to avoid having a large number of "extra" embryos so this approach worked for us. In the end we still had a high number - 21 mature eggs, 19 fertilized, 15 made it to day 5/6 blastocyst. Having had a trisomy miscarriage in the past, we chose to freeze all embryos and do PGS testing. Due to cost, we could only afford to test 8 embryos at the time but had the remaining 7 biopsied for later testing if needed. Of the 8, 2 came back non-viable which is typical. I needed a hysteroscopy before transferring, so about 2 months after retrieval I was able to do my first FET. We used a Lupron protocol. I did have to push back the transfer by one week because my lining was not thick enough at the first check, but we added a half pill of estrogen vaginally (in addition to the oral doses) and it was ok a week later. That transfer resulted in my daughter. I went for weekly ultrasounds through week 10 or 11 at the clinic then fully transitioned to my OB. About a year and half after having my daughter we were ready to try again. We worked with Dr. Neithardt, repeating a saline sonogram and mock transfer. We agreed to follow the same protocol that worked the first time, the only change was adding the vaginal estrogen earlier since we knew I needed it before. I became pregnant but the numbers / trends were all over the place and I ultimately miscarried. We had a D&E done to test the fetal remains and unfortunately could not find a clear cause. The fetus was genetically normal and no physical causes could be found. This is where I really appreciated Dr. Neithardt - I have a complicated medical history including several autoimmune diseases. We retested for additional diseases that would be known to cause this type of problem, and the results were negative. However, Dr. Neithardt and I trusted our gut instincts that this is somehow related and discussed how we might change the protocol. We theorize that my body is rejecting the pregnancy and cutting off bloodflow, causing it to terminate. It took a few months for my body to be ready for another try but we eventually began another cycle. This time we added prednisone to further suppress my immune system. I again became pregnant and the numbers all appeared robust. Unfortunately, at my 6 week ultrasound we discovered the gestational sac had continued growing but the fetus had not. I had another D&E but this time I could not emotionally handle doing more testing on the fetal remains. Dr. Neithardt agreed with my husband and I that there wasn't likely any information to gain from testing any remains, if any could even be identified, which gave us a modicum of peace on the issue. She still feels that this may be an autoimmune response (as do I) and suggests another cycle include both the prednisone as well as Lovenox, a blood thinner to try to prevent clotting to the fetus. However, at that point I was relocated for work to another state and we have not yet decided if we or when we will pursue more transfers.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Most of the nursing staff at this practice is very nice to work with. There are always the exceptions - a new nurse who told me to go to the bathroom before my appointment then found out I needed to provide a urine sample before we could perform my test that day which caused a delay, for example. My most frequent frustration was when a nurse would answer a question based on the typical protocol even when I knew there was an unusual factor in my case and I wanted to escalate the question to my doctor. I eventually was given instructions for how to handle those questions to my satisfaction. The staff was interested in my comfort, tried to answer my questions fully to the best of their knowledge, and tried to be as comforting as they could when we discovered my losses. That experience in particular stuck with me because my first loss had been when I was seeing a different provider and they had been very distant and clinical when I was completely disoriented and heartbroken.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I had only positive things to say about this clinic after my first experience with them (IVF stimulation & retrieval and one FET). They worked well as a team, tried to accommodate my needs as much as possible, were always friendly, etc. By the time I was working with them again 1.5 - 2 years later, there had been some changes in their internal structure and processes which unfortunately caused a few problems for me as a patient. They were still friendly and usually accommodating, but their internal communications had broken down at times. This caused me some frustrations trying to reconcile the plan my doctor and I had laid out with the actual steps being performed as well as some issues after my losses regarding medication decisions (due to other medical issues, I wasn't doing well with the "normal" protocol and needed my doctor to give personalized instructions). It was not a terrible experience, but when it happened twice in the span of a few months even after I discussed my concerns with everyone involved, I began to question how well I could work with them if we decide to try again in the future.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I was lucky to have excellent insurance so my only costs were for genetic screening, medications, freezing and thawing costs, and $10 visit copays. I paid about $450 plus copays for a frozen transfer cycle. I no longer have this insurance, and when I inquired about the out of pocket costs I was told that their fee is $4,500 for one FET cycle (not including retrieval which I had done previously).
Describe Adrienne Neithardt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I was only willing to transfer one embryo at a time anyway, as were my other care providers, so this was not an issue for me.

Dr Bachman is honest, caring and thorough. I value her opinion and truly believe she wants our family to have more children. When I first met Dr Bachman I was suppose to have surgery with the previous doctor, but due to him leaving I rescheduled with Dr Bachman. She discussed risks, benefits and possible outcomes of my diagnostic laparoscopy (previously I had a fimbrioplasty with another fertility specialist and wanted to see if my tube condition was still good).
My care coordinator [at Reproductive Associates of DE] Mari is fantastic! She is always quick to respond to my calls and questions. She is caring and truly wants to help the patients she works with. I also appreciate that Mari communicates changes or information within the office immediately; changing appointments or calling with info regarding care.... The costs under Dr Bachmans office were more reasonable than other offices in my area.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I came to see Emelia Bachman after another doctor within the practice left. Dr Bachman is honest, caring and thorough. I value her opinion and truly believe she wants our family to have more children. When I first met Dr Bachman I was suppose to have surgery with the previous doctor, but due to him leaving I rescheduled with Dr Bachman. She discussed risks, benefits and possible outcomes of my diagnostic laparoscopy (previously I had a fimbrioplasty with another fertility specialist and wanted to see if my tube condition was still good). I feel grateful to have met Dr Bachman and I feel that when I finally get pregnant it will be because of her loving, caring and thorough approach.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
The best advice is to write down any questions you have before your visit. The reasoning is because it’s very emotional experiencing infertility and sometimes we patients get lost in our emotions and forget to ask pertinent questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr Bachman made me feel like I have known her forever. I genuinely feel that she wants to see me and my husband have another child. Her role is not without empathy, compassion and caring. She is trying to change the lives of her clients for the better. She loves her job and it’s obvious.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).

Dr. Neithardt was amazing. She took time to explain all procedures, including pictures, and answer any questions. She always came to the waiting room to greet us and was as honest as she could be knowing all that she did. With all of the appointments that we had, she could not be present for all of them, but the staff was sure to mention any discussions they had with the doctor in the meantime. It made me feel like she really cared and wanted to do right by us, whether she could see us face to face or not.
The clinic [RAD] is large with many nurses, techs, doctors, and patients. I would tell people to not let that intimidate them. It’s large because they are the BEST! There is always someone there to take care of your needs. Smiles and friendly faces are around every corner. The practice does what is best for you; whatever will keep you and your fertility safe and sound. They can be conservative but in a good way. Whatever decisions are made, are done as a team and you know they have your best interests at heart.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
One piece of advice I would give would be to be upfront and honest with her about everything. Medical history, mental and emotional state, hopes and fears, they are all important. Dr. Neithardt wants to know these things in order to best care for people.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I felt like a human. DR. Neithardt always used my first name when addressing me. She was always friendly and reassuring while still maintaining a realistic outlook. She remembered me, or at least took the time to review my chart, after not seeing her for about 6.5 years. There was no judgment or condescension. She was professional and respectful of my wishes to expand our family. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Dr. Neithardt was concerned about hyper stimulation during IVF. She used a mini stimulation protocol that started with clomid. It worked for us because we did not stimulate too much and were able to do a fresh transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Rhonda wright)
They staff always talked to me as if we were old friends. They were upfront and honest and relied on medical information and team decisions to guide my treatment. My coordinator was fantastic and timely with all responses and scheduling. Being able to leave any member of the staff a message over their portal not only gave me reassurance but also confidence in the knowledge of the staff. They always responded in a timely manner with as much information as possible.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Honestly, we were concerned with cost about everything but it was manageable and comparable to other clinics. They were always good about trying to make connections and coverage happen with insurance or any possible discounts.
Describe Adrienne Neithardt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
I understand why doctors perform single transfers rather than multiple. Our practice only did single transfers unless you completed multiple failed Trabsfer attempts. I appreciate the concern for me all while trying to help me get pregnant in the safest way possible.

Dr. K {Kovalevsky] preformed a hysteroscopy and laparoscopy surgery for my endometriosis, which I felt was very helpful. I had a surgery only 3 months prior to that with my regular obgyn and it was a terrible recovery with no symptom relief. The surgery with Dr. K was the complete opposite!... Dr. K always listened to my concerns and would adjust treatment accordingly. He also was amazing about getting back to me. He would often do phone conferences during the same day to ensure all my questions were answered.
The clinic [RAD] did not allow my body to naturally start a cycle. They would only allow my to start a cycle that would match up with all of the other patients. Therefore I would be pushed to the next month if my menstration period did not come in time.... Mari Esquillin was absolutely amazing! I cannot speak more highly of her. She was so quick to answer request and guenuinely cared for each patient. As for other IVF coordinators, some lacked good bed side manner. It seemed like they gave you a the standard message they give everyone. They were great about getting back to you it you had questions.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I felt like Dr. K treated me like a human however the clinic did not allow my body to naturally start a cycle. They would only allow my to start a cycle that would match up with all of the other patients. Therefore I would be pushed to the next month if my menstration period did not come in time. At that point I felt more like a number and did not feel the individual care.

They were great about getting back to you it you had questions.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
They are great communicators! They will often get back to you immediately. At times though they can be not that sensitive to your situation. For example, I waS was told my pregnancy test was negative over a voicemail and the nurse yawned during the middle of the voicemail. As much as I am sure this is their norm it was devistating to me. So staff fall into the “this is our norm”, but other staff go above and beyond for your needs!
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Insurance covered a large percentage, but about $5000 out of pocket.
Describe George Kovalevsky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Although Dr. K did not prefer to use multiple embryo transfer after two failed cycles with unknown causes he allowed us to engage in multiple embryo transfer. He made his concerns known respectfully but did not deny us of our request.

Having come from another clinic, I can say that RAD is ten times better. The online portal is an amazingly easy way to keep in touch, ask those questions you think don’t quite warrant a call, and keep track of both your paperwork and your appointments. There are lots of faces, so my advice would be to prepare yourself to get adjusted to that. However, I have yet to come across a staff member I didn’t like.

Bring a notepad and take notes. She gives you a lot of information to digest, which is good!

Dr. Neithardt took the time to meet with me, go over my test results, and explain my options in detail. I truly felt as if she was determined to help me make the best treatment decisions in light of my needs and financial considerations. She has been extremely kind and professional throughout my treatment.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
We began with a medicated iui cycle with donor sperm, as it seemed to be the most economical with no known fertility issues. When that was not successful, we tried two inseminations in one cycle, which resulted in a positive pregnancy test. Unfortunately, that did not work. Now, we are debating between ivf and iui. As always, cost is a major factor. Dr. Neithardt truly understands that and has been supportive throughout.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neidhart took time to thoroughly explain our procedure and answered all of our questions. She even listened and allowed us to try things that we researched on our own. We felt like we were apart of the process and not just another source of income for the clinic
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?

Dr. Neidhart is wonderful! She too ample time to sit with us during scheduled appts as well as unscheduled ones when we just had questions. She is caring, honest, and has a positive outlook on our fertility journey. She never made us feel like we could not have a baby

We did dna testing as well which eased our minds about our own bodies and possible genetic diseases that could be passed on to our child. The RAD clinic went over my drug protocol with us and said that it was an agressive approach due to my age and egg reserve but they felt that it was a good protocol to produce a live birth. I have not currently undergone an IVF cycle as we are waiting for my partner's sperm count to be at a level that Dr. Neidhart feels is acceptable for us to have the most success.

Dr Mcguirk is very straight to the point, she will give you the good and bad, but in the end wants to ensure that you get the best treatment that works for you. I have currently been with reproductive associations almost 4 years now, and the past couple months with her has re given me hope that one day I will be able to start a family.
I really do not have enough words to Express how grateful I am to have a coordinator like her [at RAD-Dover]. When I first started my journey I walked in a nervous wreck not knowing where to begin, and she was the first one to greet me and assured me I was in the right place. She makes you feel like she is your number 1 supporter, she will find a way to add light to a situation that to some can be gray. I appreciate everything she has done for me.

Describe the protocols Barbara McGuirk used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I was given letrozole, which allowed my follicles to grow, but not mature, so in the same cycle she gave me clomid, which helped them grow a little bigger, but not to the size she would like them to be.

Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The only weakness I have noticed is that not all patient coordinators have the attitude to help. It's leaning towards this is just a job. Which is ok. However when you pay so much money just to find out that you were not successful, the least you would hope for a a little compassion from the person telling you the news. For new patients definitely have patience,

Dr. McGuirk is not like any other doctor I have been to before. She takes time to listen to your concerns and questions. She is very straightforward with everything and doesn't "beat around the bush" as some would say. She is a very positive person, which I feel is a great quality in a doctor. She is the one who diagnosed me with endometriosis, after years of seeing other doctors. She really listened to what I had to say and had a plan in place the first appointment for my treatment. She doesn't rush you or make you feel like she is in a hurry to get to the next patient. Dr. McGuirk is very personable and compassionate.
Reproductive Associates of Delaware is very organized and helpful. They do their best to work around your schedule and accommodate. They do all that they can to help you reach your fertility goals. Emailing through the portal is the easiest way to communicate. You usually have an answer back that day....Each team member at RAD treats you like you are family. They all treat you with the utmost respect. They all care about you, your treatment and concerns. They do their best to get you answers to your questions in a timely manner.

Be ready to take notes and ask questions. She is very knowledgeable and tells you everything. It may be overwhelming at first, but she will take the time to explain anything you don't understand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. McGuirk takes the time to understand her patients and their needs. You never feel rushed or that your concerns aren't being heard. She answers every question you have and explains everything very thoroughly. She genuinely cares about each patient and listens to what you have to say.
Describe the protocols Barbara McGuirk used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Dr. McGuirk oversaw my treatment for my medicated cycles with a prescribing physician due to living three hours away from the clinic. For three months I used 50mg of Clomid. For the first two months of Clomid, I ovulated. The last cycle I did not. For the fourth month I used a low dose of Letrozole. The cycle using Letrozole I did not ovulate. Our next step is IVF. My husband and I did not want to jump right to IVF due to the cost and having no insurance coverage for it. With having endometriosis, we knew the risks of not doing IVF right away and were also aware that we could eventually need it to build our family. Dr. McGuirk explained everything very thoroughly at our appointment.

I had to suggest treatment protocols [to Dr. Kovalevsky]. Specifically the ERA, when I had the appt to have that done, they had to read the instruction manual as if they had no idea what they were doing (both he and his assistant). Yet my coordinator was well versed with the ERA's and had said that they had a lot of success with them. I had to have a Pap smear during my course of treatment and Dr. K performed it. He did not get enough tissue so I had to repeat it.
I received countless calls [from Reproductive Associates of Delaware] with incorrect information. This is a profession that you should be on top of game...It was very much like a conveyor belt.

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I had to suggest treatment protocols. Specifically the ERA, when I had the appt to have that done, they had to read the instruction manual as if they had no idea what they were doing (both he and his assistant). Yet my coordinator was well versed with the ERA's and had said that they had a lot of success with them. I had to have a Pap smear during my course of treatment and Dr. K performed it. He did not get enough tissue so I had to repeat it. I have never in my 24 years of getting pap smears had to repeat one due to Dr. failure. He never agreed with any of the "controversial" procedures I brought up and had a physical appearance about him as if I was foolish to even suggest it. I'm not sure what has transpired with him since our successful pregnancy back in 2013, but he has since left the practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Choose another practice. If your case is somewhat "typical" you might end up with a child, but if you need a tweaked treatment plan, forget it. It won't happen.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
We were with this clinic on two different occasions. Once with our 4 year old son. The clinic and Dr. K were amazing. We conceived via IUI. We started for a sibling in 2016 and started with IUI's and moved to IVF. The feeling at the clinic was VERY different. It was very much like a conveyor belt. Mistakes were made and many of the new faces were not welcoming.
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Nothing was tweaked in any of my cycles. When I questioned why were doing the same thing over and over again (quoting Einstein who said insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result) He said that we DID try something else, namely the ERA that I suggested. I kept begging them to look into why my progesterone was so low and they did nothing about it. They offered no explanation as to why I kept losing my pregnancies, Dr. K made it seem that I just need to keep doing it, because it would eventually result in a pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Dorri Purse and Amy Miller)
Dorri was great. She showed compassion and professionalism. Amy Miller was cold and abrupt. The nursing staff has changed so much over the years and NOT in a good way. They have no compassion for their patients. In fact one of my favorite nurses (from our successful pregnancy) at one point apologized with her eyes rolling for taking so long during an appt because the prior patient had SO MANY questions. I found that very unprofessional and hurtful.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The treat you as an number on a conveyor belt. There is no compassion and no love for their jobs. I received countless calls with incorrect information. This is a profession that you should be on top of game.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
There were times I was asked to pay thousands of dollars only to find out later that I did not. The bilk you for everything you have with nothing to show for it. I did have insurance coverage which I was grateful for, however it at times was a complete nightmare

I will be starting an IUI cycle with Dr. Bachman. At my last doctor I did 3 failed IUI cycles and plan on doing one more and then switching to IVF if unsuccessful. Dr. Bachman did more testing and came across some complications which are being addressed at this time before doing the IUI cycle.

Dr Bachman is one of the most kind, compassionate doctors I have ever had. ... Started with clomid and IUIs as all fertility tests came back normal. ... While she is not always punctual, it is because she takes her time with all her patients and never rushes you through an appointment. She is always willing to answer questions and has even called me after hours to check in before procedures or after bad news. She is very up-to-date on current research and findings in the field. She is open to all feedback, positive or negative and is always looking to improve.
Monitoring was a cattle call. First come first served. ... During one ivf cycle, all the wrong meds were called in to the pharmacy.

Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
Started with clomid and IUIs as all fertility tests came back normal. switched to IVF after 4 failed rounds. With each retrieval, we changed the dose of medicine and then the type of medicine used, with the hopes of getting fewer overall eggs , but more mature ones.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses and PAs are amazing. They have become like family. They are the ones in the trenches with you every day. They are the ones who do most of the exams and the daily monitoring. Everyone is compassionate, gentle and positive .
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Strengths: Clinic has a team of doctors that meet each week to discuss IVF cases. Great staff of PAs and nurses Embryo quality/grading system and selection for retrieval has never been communicated to me. In my case, I prefer to know less, but many patients may want to know this information. Clinic is very conservative in terms of trigger shots & preventing OHSS and only doing single embryo transfers .
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Monitoring was a cattle call. First come first served. This made each cycle very stressful, as I do not have a job I can be late for. When I reached out to my doctor about it, I was able to make appointments, however it was clearly to appease me. I was still only seen in the order of arrival, despite what my “appointment” time was.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Rounds of clomid and IUI were covered by insurance. Insurance has run out for IVF. Costs also associated with a laparoscopy.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Theresa )
The PAs and nursing staff as a whole were absolutely wonderful. I was assigned a patient care coordination who was terrible. She showed no compassion, frequently messed up scheduling, was very hard to get into touch with via phone, and was only accessible through an online portal. I had to contact her to remind her to get things done rather than her coordinating my care the way she was supposed to.

Dr. Neithardt is patient, honest, compassionate, and knowledgable. She takes the time to explain everything in a way that can be understood. She makes sure her patients are as comfortable as they can be in stressful circumstances.... She recommended IVF at that point, which we agreed was the best course of action. Based on my age and health, we did mini-stim IVF. After the egg retrieval, my body wasn’t responding appropriately, so we reset while my embryos were frozen (5 day). A couple months later we did the transfer and it was successful.
They [Reproductive Associates of DE] have a lot of patients, and sometimes you have to wait a while after your scheduled appointment time. Besides that, however, I have never once felt like “just a number”. I think the wait time can be long because they are taking their time with patients.... Without insurance, we paid $10,000 for potential multiple cycles until pregnancy. The cost did not include medications, but did include monitoring, ultrasounds, and the pregnancy bloodwork.

She took the time to answer all questions, no matter how small or silly. She made small talk and really acted like she was invested in our success.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
We tried clomid, then letrazole (I think) initially, but my body wasn’t properly responding, so we cancelled the cycle. Because we were self-pay at the time, she explained that we could keep trying with the medications or potentially try IUI, but the likelihood of success was small and we would quickly exhaust our funds. She recommended IVF at that point, which we agreed was the best course of action. Based on my age and health, we did mini-stim IVF. After the egg retrieval, my body wasn’t responding appropriately, so we reset while my embryos were frozen (5 day). A couple months later we did the transfer and it was successful. I’m currently in a new cycle. I had the transfer one week ago and am waiting on the results.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Without insurance, we paid $10,000 for potential multiple cycles until pregnancy. The cost did not include medications, but did include monitoring, ultrasounds, and the pregnancy bloodwork. My new insurance is covering my second round, and I paid an approximately $1,400 copay, not including medication, which came to about $30.00
Describe Adrienne Neithardt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
We weren’t given a choice; RAD only performs single embryo transfers. I would have liked a choice after the risks were explained, although I understand their approach.

She [Dr. Emelia Bachman] listened to everything we had to say and always made sure this was the decision we wanted to go with. We had two failed IUIs so we already knew we wanted to go ivf and we told her that and she completely agreed and supported our decision telling us the best route to take and when to do each thing and always made sure we were comfortable with the decision. I told her there was a chance of endometriosis and she actually listened where others didn’t and took the necessary measures to make sure my embryo had the best chance!!
It [the monitoring at RAD] was well efficient!! They gave you about a 2 hour window to show up and they had you in and out within id say 30-45 mins with blood work and ultra sound done and some mornings there was lots of woman there with me and all the nurses did there parts to make the line go!!... They work with your schedule, I work two jobs and they made my appointments work around my jobs!! Each section is super helpful including the financial side. I had to call them once or twice for my insurance and they helped and made me laugh each time. There isn’t one person there who has a bad attitude

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
You will love her!!! Fertility problems are the worse for us but walking in the first time and meeting her she is just so pleasant and sweet it makes our problems and little more bareable when you know you have her on your team!!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I Felt like a human because she always smiled when talking to us and when I did my egg retrieval you could tell how heart broken she was that we only got 7. She hates to give bad news but she’s always there for us and gives us hugs everytime we see her !!
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I told Bachman about the iuis and the endometriosis chance so she said between my Ibs issues and my irregularity that there was a high chance so she said the best plan would be the egg retrieval first then surgery to check for endometriosis and to remove a cyst and pileup to make sure the embryo had the best chance then the transfer

Dr N [Neithardt] is everything I think a Doctor should be. She is warm and caring, while being honest about situation. My wife is a very detail oriented person, and Dr N has shown immense patience in walking us through all the steps. She performed my wife's endometriosis surgery and made sure to make her as comfortable as possible. We've had setbacks; a chemical pregnancy, as well as dismissal from a clinical trial that would've saved us nearly 20k in IVF treatments. Dr N has walked us along, and with the team at RAD, we feel very confident in our chances.
RAD is the only clinic my wife and I have gone to. We saw one of their other doctors, and that wasn't a good fit. We got a call from one of their coordinators asking if we would come meet with Dr N, and there was no reason to go anywhere else.... We were participating in the Sarah Study (clinical trial for a progesterone ring) and our link to that study works for RAD. When our participation was in jeopardy, we had asked for updates and received none over a 5 day period.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
She is warm, caring, and easy to talk to. She gives all information, she doesn't feed you any nonsense, but she gives you what you need. With all the setbacks we've dealt with, Dr N has really helped set and manage expectations, as well as guide us down the path that makes sense for US, not everyone. The treatment we've received from her, both medically and person to person, has been phenomenal.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Be prepared to take in the information. She's extremely knowledgeable and passionate about helping people.

Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
This is something better left to my wife, in all honesty. I know she did endometriosis surgery to help get my wife back to baseline (she was stage 4).
Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Compassionate doesn't even scratch the surface of the tram at RAD. Nurses, coordinators, literally everyone. You can simply tell they want this for you as much as you do. If we hit a setback or roadblock, they are there with encouragement and support. I cannot say enough positive things about them.

We got a call from one of their coordinators asking if we would come meet with Dr N, and there was no reason to go anywhere else. They have a proven track record, and an ability to adjust treatment plans and protocol per patient. Ask questions. Take notes. If you feel your Dr isn't a great fit, ask to consult with another. Do research and come prepared. RAD will back you, lead you, and go to bat for you if need be.

Dr. Neithardt was compassionate and provided amazing care. I loved that she was able to excise my endometriosis AND be my IVF doctor. I had no doubts in either get medical competency or her compassion for my condition. She personally handled setbacks and always makes time for me. I cannot recommend her more.... My treatments we're completely catered to my personal needs. She personally handled important matters and followed up with me directly.
RADs success rates are very high, and you can see why due too their collaborative treatment team of doctors and compassionate staff. The first Doctor I saw was Dr. McGuirk, and she lacked bedside manner, compassion, and did not listen to my concerns or change her treatment plan to my needs.... I also had a significant issue where I was not communicated with to an acceptable level with the clinical trial coordinator, Mark Moldeski.

RADs success rates are very high, and you can see why due too their collaborative treatment team of doctors and compassionate staff. The first Doctor I saw was Dr. McGuirk, and she lacked bedside manner, compassion, and did not listen to my concerns or change her treatment plan to my needs. Luckily the office staff reached out with compassion and I found Dr. Neithardt. I also had a significant issue where I was not communicated with to an acceptable level with the clinical trial coordinator, Mark Moldeski. His responses were always less informative and timley than the other RAD staff. It became unavailable when I recieved almost no communication from him when I was under review to be rejected from a clinical trial I was already accepted for. This situation was crucial and I was left uniformed by my primary contact.

We [with Dr. Emelia Bachman] tried three rounds of Clomid with ovidrel. I do not ovulate on my own and clomid is the most frequently used drug to help mature eggs for ovulation. Each cycle I produced 1-2 mature eggs for ovulation. After three cycles we did not have luck and decided to try a different drug called letrezole. Clomid sometimes can kill sperm causing difficulty with conceiveing so letrezole is another option. My first cycle of letrezole I did mature and egg for ovulation. After this cycle I met my insurance quota of non invasive techniques so the next cycle we tried with one iui. I still took letrezole and this cycle I matured two eggs for ovulation.
I did have one cycle where they [Reproductive Associates of DE] mixed my bloodwork up with another patient. They called to report I was pregnant when that in fact was not the truth. They did rectify the situation by meeting with me and providing some financial assistance with treatment. I was assured the situation was handled and would never happen again.

Dr. Kovalesky was extremely knowledgeable and very caring. He had very accurate "numbers" at the time of our IVF consult- being that, we got the exact amount eggs, embryos, and chances of conceiving as he predicted we would. He also has a quirky sense of humor which can be very helpful at times like this, especially after so much heartache throughout the other unsuccessful treatments.

Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
When it came time for our IVF consult, he hit the nail on the head when predicting the number of (mature) eggs I'd most likely have, the number of embryos we'd most likely have, and gave a us good percentage of the likelihood of achieving a successful pregnancy. All his numbers were incredibly accurate, and we are now 17 weeks pregnant with our first child. I couldn't be more appreciative of his concern and care throughout the entire process.

My experience with Dr Kovalevsky was beyond phenomenal! After 10 years of having the same undiagnosed problems I was referred to RAD. It only took him a few visits and test to figure out what the problem was! I was treated and on to the process of becoming a mother. I appreciate him so much for giving me the answers that I longed for! He was so compassionate, caring, and yet straightforward!
This clinic [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] is awesome! It’s warm, beautiful, and comforting. They are so welcoming as soon as you open the door. Everyone is so kind and always speak.

My experience as a patient of Dr. McGuirk thus far is beyond measure. She has always kept our best interest at heart. When we had a miscarriage in 2016, we changed our plan and removed my uterine septum first, now we are our on first round of letrozole with injection. Dr. McGuirk has always been very up front and explained the process in detail to us, answered all our questions and is genuinely concerned about me and our future children's well being. A outstanding doctor and expert.
I honestly can't say one bad thing about this facility [Reproductive Associates of DE] I do most of my communications with them by email so sometimes it would be nice to have a direct number for someone I need to speak with but other than that, the office is great.... The nursing department is excellent. They answers questions very quickly and have always been friendly to me and my husband

Be prepared for the honest truth.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barbara McGuirk at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
I have enjoyed working with Dr. McGuirk and her staff through my infertility journey thus far. Dr. McGuirk removed a uterine septum in 2017 and before I had even woke up from the anesthesia she went out to the waiting room and sat with my mother and husband and explained every thing that was done during the procedure. Such a relief to my family.
Describe the protocols Barbara McGuirk used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
When we first met with Dr. McGuirk, the plan was go undergo some tests to find out if my tubes were open, etc. When my husband and I got pregnant unexpectedly, we changed to the plan to remove my uterine septum and start trying to conceive shortly thereafter. After trying for 7 months and no luck we have now moved to ovulation meds and are working on the first cycle of that.

Dr. Kovalevsky is a smart and brilliant doctor just his bedside are lacking. He wouldn't give you hope on the procedure itself, sometimes I left the office asking my husband "so wait what does he want to do"... My first round of retrieval, he used the minimum low dosage of medication, when before it was to end I was called by another doctor to tell me the medicine wasn't doing its job and I looked like a 40 year old woman and not a 28 year old. Round two of medicine worked better and cost more but I wish he would have sat down and ask us what we wanted to do.. 2 Rounds of medicine was hard on both of us.
The PA's in that office [Reproductive Associates of DE] are so wonderful! They really make you feel better about crying and negative test results, they make you feel like you are not alone and you can do anything. They are so smart and they are usually who you see and I personally like seeing them more then the Doctor cause they made me feel like a person with nothing wrong with me.

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Kovalevsky is truly knowledgeable and greatly experienced. He was always clear about what to expect and what may happen as well as numbers regarding possibilities related to certain complications, success rate and such. We felt very comfortable after talking with him about our concerns, plans and more. When we relocated to several states away after the first transfer (with a live birth!) and needed to find a local reliable fertility doctor/clinic for monitoring before and after the second transfer, he was willing to provide a contact information of a doctor he could recommend. He also let us choose to do transfers with him or with the new local doctor. We chose to keep our frozen embryos with his office and fly back to RAD for two more transfers so far and we are now proud to be parents of two beautiful children!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Just ask any kind of questions without hesitation. He will answer to any of them with the most current information!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Kovalevsky always explained everything we asked very well and respected our thoughts and concerns.
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
For frozen embryo transfer, lupron-esterase protocol: start lupron 1 month before transfer (20 unit), stop pill on day 7, decrease lupron to 10 unit and start esterase (dose gradually increased), add vaginal lupron on 10 days before transfer. For the last 5 days before transfer, additional doxycycline, medrol and progesterone (50 mg IM.) Progesterone and esterase to be continued until pregnancy test. Progesterone to be continued if become pregnant until week 13.

Don't remember well but I believe we spent about $12500 including medications, but we added many additional options such as PGS testing and embryoscope.
Describe George Kovalevsky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
At this clinic, they do basically only eSET to increase chance of pregnancy, as well as to decrease chance of complications during pregnancy.

I had to start with surgery to remove cysts again, then we monitored my cycle with ultra sounds and blood work [with Dr. George Kovalevsky]. The first 3 times we tried just the trigger shot ( I was not to emotional) and intercourse and then finally we tried trigger shot and IUI!!! Success on the first try!!!...he was always available to answer any questions I had and before he would do a procedure, he would explain everything and make sure I was ready before starting.
RAD is a well maintained, trained, and experienced clinic. The whole process from making the consult apt to your 12wk ultrasound apt when they release you to your OB is a smooth transition. Each doctor has its own coordinators so they have a connection with every patient. When you call if you need billing department, or just to talk to a nurse they are there and willing to help with anything.

Dr. K is a human being and he is there to help you, just relax and think of him as a friend.

[Dr. George Kovalevsky] Pushed for ivf due to high success rates and then push for IUI because we refuse to do IVF due to PCOS not being severe. He also suggest doing timed intercourse and surgery he was very wishy-washy on what he wanted us to do. I then asked him what he thought we should do and he told me that option was ours. We decided on doing IUI and he prescribed me letrozole with progesterone and we did three IUI cycles. All three cycles I ovulated and sperm count was extremely high. No one could understand why I wasn't getting pregnant.
Clinic [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] was magnificent never had a horrible experience with them ever!!! They were always there for me when I needed them!! All staff was wonderful!!! I would recommend this clinic to everyone!! Going through fertility is very stressful and they were so companionate and understanding!!!!...All the nurses, coordinators and staff we excellent!!!

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Wish I had an opportunity to meet all doctor's before going with Dr. Kovalevsky. Felt like I was just another paitent. He diegnosed me with pcos and then went over what we should do. Instead of telling me what plan we should go with he gave me two options, Surgery to see if anything was blocking tubes or to see poplips that they couldn't see during testing or iui. I am not a doctor and asked him what we thought we should do first and he stated it was up to us! He hyped up iui and told us our odds were higher if we did that vs. timed intercourse. We did three rounds of iui and never got pregnant. We only seen him 2 maybe three times. The first time for consultantion, the second for diagnosis and the third to go over options if the third iui didn't take. He stated to us that if the third iui didn't take we should look into ivf! Witch is extremely expensive and we had to ask our parents to help pay for the three iui's! While getting our third iui done I spoke with another doctor who was very helpful with pcos and expaibed that if this 3rd iui didn't take we should consider the surgery! With my pcos I don't have severe symptoms I just don't ovulate on my own and each iui cycle I ovulated and husband's sperm count was immaculate! Wanted to stop fertility treatments because I felt like Dr. Kovalevsky was just wasting our money! Big let down and very stressful! After my third iui I found out that I could switch doctor's! Excited to finally get the help we need!!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
If you are one who likes options on what you want to do see him. If you are one who believes the doctor should tell you what needs to be done and the right path you should take see someone else. Also if you don't like to see your doctor through your treatments often Dr. Kovalevsky is the guy for you!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Seen him once before our three iui cycles for our consultantion and didn't see him again until the third cycle. Felt like we wasted our money! He kept us on the same plan for all three cycles when it didn't work the first time he didn't meet with us to try something else. Instead we did the same for all three iui and had the same results all three times no pregnancy!! Extremely frustrating and stress full!!

Dr. Kovalevksy took the time to get to know me and my husband before any treatment. He was blunt but kind and always gave me more information when asked. He understood the financial burdens that come with infertility and always gave honest opinion on what steps he would take and why. We didn't have our embryos screened because he told us it was not a necessity for our particular case. We were vulnerable and would have gladly given the money if he had answered differently. He gave us his personal cell phone number in case of emergency and was always available by phone or portal.
The clinic [Repro Assoc of DE] is excellent. Their facilities are clean and their equipment is new. They have several offices in the area to accommodate your schedule. They are pricier than other clinics in the region but I felt the service they provided was well worth it...The billing office really went to bat for me. My insurance incorrectly told them (and me) that my IUIs and IVF would be covered 80/20 after the deductible. That was incorrect. We had no coverage. The billing office tried to fight it for me and actually filed a formal complaint citing the reference number of the call.

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
He was very present and available to answer questions. We had confidence in him as a doctor. He was one of the doctors who performed my laparoscopic surgery and he went above and beyond to make sure everything was done to the best of their abilities. My surgery was more complicated than had been expected but he took extra time to correct issues within my body (scarring from endometriosis caused organs to be very misplaced and he corrected all of them).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
He is blunt. On the first visit he seemed intimidating and overly confident. He is very funny when appropriate and has great bedside manner.

Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
We did three letrazole cycles for IUI. After the third he told me we would switch up the meds or move on to IVF. We had already done two medicated cycles without IUI and he was confident that IVF was our best bet. We used the mini stim protocol for IVF. Mainly due to my age at the time (28) and the fear that I would overtime on higher meds as I produced a lot of follicles during IUIs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware). (Assigned nurse: Rhonda Wright)
My coordinator was an actual angel. Mari went so far above my expectations that I am at a loss for words. She was my rock and always responded to me within 20 minutes and got things going when needed. Rhonda was my main PA and she was such a source of comfort and knowledge. This woman laughed with me and cried with me. She held my hand when needed and was like a fairy godmother. I loved these two women more than I can say. On the flip side, I didn't like the attitude of the front desk woman on the second floor suite who had short, white hair. She was frustrating and mean and just unpleasant. Luckily I got to see Gina at the front desk the most and she was always sweet and accommodating.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The clinic is excellent. Their facilities are clean and their equipment is new. They have several offices in the area to accommodate your schedule. They are pricier than other clinics in the region but I felt the service they provided was well worth it.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
It was a well oiled machine. You could go in between 6am and 12pm. I tended to be the first patient in the office due to my schedule. A lot of people would go to offices close to work to accommodate their schedules. I never waited more than 15 minutes, even on days that I showed up later (around 8). They let you do your blood work first if you aren't the first patient into a room which was nice. Rita (phlebotomist) was always friendly and efficient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
The billing office really went to bat for me. My insurance incorrectly told them (and me) that my IUIs and IVF would be covered 80/20 after the deductible. That was incorrect. We had no coverage. The billing office tried to fight it for me and actually filed a formal complaint citing the reference number of the call. My medicated IUIs were under 2k including meds and daily monitoring (blood work and transvaginal u/s). My mini stim cycle was 11k plus $4000 for meds. I was able to get some donated meds and only paid $3600. After my positive pregnancy test (and two more to confirm the HcG was doubling appropriately) I had to pay for three of my ultrasounds ($60) out of 12 ultrasounds. All other copays were included with the cost of IUI and IVF.
Describe George Kovalevsky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
He will not transfer more than one embryo if you are under 34 unless there is very good reason to suspect it is the only way to be successful. As IVF can cause many complications and puts you in the high risk category he does not like to add to possible complications unless well warranted.

Dr. Bachman always took the time to explain our results and our treatment options in terms that my husband and I would understand. She is a very compassionate physician who makes you feel comfortable about asking questions and voicing your concerns... She greets you with a hug and listens to your concerns empathetically. I received numerous calls from her after failed cycles to check in with how I was doing. I never felt rushed or like I was holding her up.
RAD has a great portal system to keep track of your appointments and communicate with the staff. I wish that results had been available on the portal, however. I dealt a lot with Stephanie, the genetic counselor, and she was very helpful in explaining my diagnosis and providing resources...I was fortunate to qualify for and participate in a clinical trial (Megaset) that provided us an IVF cycle with PGS testing with little cost to us.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
When seeing any fertility doctor, I recommend writing down questions before your appointment so you don't forget anything. Also, take notes during the appointment.

The office staff also got to know my name and our story by the last few cycles we did there. We left this clinic due to a change in location.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I was fortunate to qualify for and participate in a clinical trial (Megaset) that provided us an IVF cycle with PGS testing with little cost to us. We jumped at this opportunity pretty quickly after our initial consult. At the time, we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. During the cycle, I had 52 eggs retrieved, 23 mature, 20 fertilized and 9 blastocysts. Of those 9, 3 came back PGS "normal". At this point after looking at these PGS results and doing a karyotype on my husband and I, I was diagnosed with a chromosome abnormality which causes infertility and recurrent miscarriages. We transferred our 3 embryos with 3 separate transfers and none took. We also did 2 Clomid IUIs with good responses which also did not work. At this point, we have moved and started treatment at a more convenient location.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was friendly and knew our story and my name by the end of our time with them.
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
RAD has a great portal system to keep track of your appointments and communicate with the staff. I wish that results had been available on the portal, however. I dealt a lot with Stephanie, the genetic counselor, and she was very helpful in explaining my diagnosis and providing resources.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Our monitoring, meds and retrieval and first transfer costs were mostly covered except about $1800. the two additional transfers were about $4000 each. I had IUI coverage through my insurance so just $25 copays a visit.
Describe Emelia Bachman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
As a NICU RN, I agree with eSETs as I have seen the risks that multiple gestation pregnancies can carry.

She [Dr. Bachman] was very compassionate with me and took the time to let me cry out my frustration as she confirmed a diagnoses that had been thrown around by another Doctor years prior but then dismissed. She explained everything is basic terms instead of medical terminology making it all easy to understand...Dr Bachmann took as much time with my husband and I as we felt that we needed.
Every visit I felt like a person. Every staff member would take the time and explain to you what was going to happen, why they were doing what they were doing, and would talk to you throughout the procedures and let you know how they were doing.I always felt comfortable and welcome, like they actually wanted help and actually cared. The facilities are top notch every time you walk in...Theresa was amazing at getting answer to questions; because sometime the information was overwhelming and I would think of questions after the fact. She was also very quick in getting anything I needed. Doctor's notes for work, prescription orders, any blood work.

Dr. Fienburg really listened to our story and actually cared about our treatment. He was very thoughtful and honest about our odds of having a child... I was referred to dr. Feinburg after having blood test, hsg testing, and my husband doing testing for fertility by my obgyn doctor. At our first meeting with dr feinburg we went over the results and he stated it was male infertility factor. He then explained how it would look if we did iui treatment and the success rate. He then went over ivf treatment and states that he believed we would have a good chance at success with this.
Scheduleing is great. For blood work I was about to go before Work at 6:30 in the morning this made it so I did not have to use my vacation time at work. Also they [Reproductive Associates of Delaware] are open on the weekend for monitoring appointments... Our coordinators name was dorri. She was great! She was very easy to talk to and very nice. She had our whole calendar ready and went over everything with us

I am single and want to have a baby, I also have pcos. After the testing (labs, hsg, saline sono) We [Dr. Emelia Bachman] started with Clomid and moved to letrozole , then follistim with the intention of doing iui with donor sperm. My follicles never grew so we moved to ivf but did a mini stim cycle because she felt I would get a lot of eggs with my retrieval (which I did). This helped cut down the costs as well.

I've had 3 transfers (one fresh and two frozen) pgs testing was offered to me from the beginning but I chose not to do it then because I didn't have any risk factors. My first transfer ended in a miscarriage at 5 weeks. My next transfer was unsuccessful. We the revisited the pgs testing and did that. Unfortunately my last transfer ended in a chemical pregnancy. After that we did a recurrent loss workup with normal results. I am waiting on results from an endometrial receptivity aray. After that I will decide when to do my next transfer. I feel I need a little bit of a hormone free break and dr. Bachman is in full support of that. I have 5 embryos remaining and she remains hopeful that I will get pregnant

Dr Bachman was awesome! Her bedside manner is excellent. She reassured me when I wasn't feeling very optimistic. My questions were always answered in a pleasant way. If she said she would call you, SHE would call you! I felt so comfortable under her care....Dr Bachman performed an HSG to see if everything was in working order and no blockages. After 2 u successful IUI with clomid, She then did a laparoscopy to check for endometriosis. We moved to a low dose of injectable medication coupled with IUI which resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Dr Bachman reassured me that we now know what works and could increase the dosage, whenever we were ready to try again. Even with experiencing this loss, we felt optimistic.
Strengths [Reproductive Associates of Delaware]: Looked and smelled Clean, good reading material, neat, music was pleasant, temperature nice, during this sensitive time you didn't see other kids/babies in the office (not that it was forbidden, but it could be a painful image for others) Weaknesses: open, no privacy, no mental health associates for patient's... Great communication, fast response, thorough explanations, step by step instructions, privacy respected, nive bedside manner... They allowed me to be billed and make payments during one cycle.

My employer doesn't offer fertility coverage so they offered a discount on procedures and surgical copays. My specialist co-pay was $40 each visit, so after 5 visits in one week it can add up. They allowed me to be billed and make payments during one cycle.

Dr. Kovalevsky is very knowledgeable and explains procedures & risks well. I initially felt very comfortable with him but then as we moved further along into a second cycle I didn’t feel like there was a personal relationship at all with him. He would get very uncomfortable if I showed emotion & cried, only to ask me if I needed to see a therapist. Also, I worked at the same surgery center that he works at 1 day a week & I would say hello as I passed him in the hall & he wouldn’t even acknowledge me let alone remember I was his patient!
I feel as though this clinic [Reproductive Associates of DE] uses a one size fits all approach with IVF. If you miss the cycle start date you have to wait a whole month to start with the next group & in the meantime they place you on birth control.... All patients are put on the same cycle for monitoring & retrieval week. Usually you are seen by a PA or NP during monitoring but not always the same person.

First retrieval I was on follistim twice a day & low dose hcg. I responded quickly & was placed on ganirelix on day 4 of stim meds. Day 9 of the cycle Dr. K scanned me & told me I might get 4 eggs at best & asked if we wanted to cancel the cycle. I cried bc this was the first I was hearing about this! I ended up triggering that day for a retrieval on cycle day 11. A different doctor performed my retrieval and got 10 eggs! A lot more than 4! Ended up with 3 blastocysts.

Biggest Advice: Ask ALL questions you may have...any reservations. He'll answer them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Kovalevsky treated me like a human. He generally listened to my concerns and fears of IVF. He looks at your eyes and gently tells you the truth. We had two great experiences with Dr. Kovalevsky which resulted in two wonderful beautiful children!
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
We tried IUI first. We did three cycles that failed. We tried these because we didn't know how bad my husband's sperm motility was. After the last failed IUI Dr. K instructed us to go to a Urologist. After that we met with Dr. K again, he went over the results of my husband's sperm counts. This resulted in us moving to IVF with ICSI. ICSI was highly suggested to ensure the best results.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I absolutely LOVED the nurses at RAD! They were so compassionate. They felt our pain, our anguish, and our complete and udder joy!! They were thorough with any explanations that were needed. Very positive all the time!
Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
Strengths: kindness, compassion, promptness, willing to work around my schedule. Weakness: the ONLY issue we had was talking about payment (2014). We felt we were being bullied into signing up for whatever RAD was offering at the time. We actually ended up switching insurance companies that did cover IVF. For a patient, before they even walk through the doors, they need to understand their health insurance. What other options they have BEFORE they start any treatments (which I'm sure I went over but can't remember).
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
My insurance covered everything. We had to pay the deductibles up front and co-pays every visit until I "graduated" from the clinic. In total from start of IUI to the end of the first IVF we spent about $6,000. The second frozen transer IVF we spent about $2,000
Describe George Kovalevsky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
We were not interested in multiple embryos transferred. Dr. K was against it as well. Going over my chart, he didn't think it was necessary, he thought I would become pregnant easily without any issues. He was right both times!

Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I started IUI treatments in Sept. 2015. August 2015 was spent getting lots of blood work and testing (Sono and HSG). The Dr. could find nothing wrong with myself or my Husband after the conclusion of testing. The Dr. felt that I should start with IUI treatments with artificial insemination. I used Clomid followed by OvidreI did this for 3 cycles. Upon my 4th cycle, a cyst had grown on my right side from the Clomid, so I was required to take a month off from treatment until the cyst disappeared. In January I chose to take one more month off. I started my 4th cycle in Feb. 2016 using Follistim injection 75 units per day, along with my Ovidrel. The 4th cycle failed and I am currently in my 5th cycle with Follistim. I actually just received the call from my Dr. office to take my ovidrel this evening, followed by two days of IUI.

Describe your experience with RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware).
My overall experience has been wonderful. I will say there were a couple of times my appointment was labeled incorrectly. I had a monitoring appointment recently but my form and the P.A. thought I was being seen for my baseline monitoring and blood work.

With my insurance, I have unlimited IUI treatments I can utilize. I only have one lifetime max of $15,000 for IVF. In 2015 I paid a $50 for most visits as well as payments when my coinsurance kicked in. For 2016, I had to meet my $750 deductible, no copay and pay the coinsurance.

I had many test. Starting with the genetic work up between myself, my family and my partner. ... As a patient She [Dr. Neithardt] showed a lot of compassion for my situation not being able to conceive naturally. ... She had prescribed a tablet that had 3 three medications in one however that was denied by my insurance at the time. So she told me to take Folic Acid, a B vitamin and something else I can’t remember the name.
Every time I was in the office or received a call from the staff they were courteous, respectful and helpful. I recommend Reproductive Associates [of Delaware] to everyone. ... When I seen the IVF packages I knew I couldn’t afford even the lowest package which was $10,000. ... [Nursing Staff] Everyone was nice. ... Typically whenever I was seen at the office I paid the specialist co pay that my insurance allotted which was $50.

How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
As I mentioned before Dr. Neithardt was very kind and sweet. As a patient She showed a lot of compassion for my situation not being able to conceive naturally. I always was seen by her and only her at the Wilmington office and she thoroughly listened to my wants and needs at every visit. When things didn’t go right She comforted me when I cried by giving me tissues and hugging my pain away. She’s an angel and truly an awesome woman inside and out. She was born to be a reproductive doctor. She’s has the heart for it. I just wish I could have afforded IVF so that we could have had a good outcome but that wasn’t the case and I still Thank and love her with my entire heart.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Adrienne Neithardt at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware)?
Dr. Neithardt was very sweet, kind, patient and always professional with me. Her beautiful smile always gave me a sense of hope even when she was delivering news I didn’t want to hear. She tried her best to help me conceive naturally. She did every test that she could but they all displayed negative results. Although she wasn’t able to help me conceive naturally she offered me IVF but I found it too costly and I wasn’t able to afford.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles at RADfertility (formerly Reproductive Associates of Delaware) and their degree of success.
I had many test. Starting with the genetic work up between myself, my family and my partner. She had prescribed a tablet that had 3 three medications in one however that was denied by my insurance at the time. So she told me to take Folic Acid, a B vitamin and something else I can’t remember the name. Then I had a procedure done in the office where she stuck a water or dyed filled tube up my vagina to my left Fallopian tube (only one I have) to see if it was occluded. We thought the water or dye went thru but she then ordered a sonogram to make sure. I went into Christiana Care outpatient and had the sonogram that couldn’t be completed because the tech and doctor wasn’t able to get the tube through Because my uterus was shifted. So she ordered a laposcopy (spellcheck) and did small incisions to thoroughly figure out the problem and she did my left tube was occluded that’s when I learned there would be no way for me to conceive naturally and IVF would be the only way.
