Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
The calendar and information is all very nicely organized. Makes it easy to follow instruction and know what to expect. The only thing I would say they could do better is help you understand what to expect when you arrive in town. For FET, I had 1 quick visit then didn't have to come back for almost a week. I thought I would be monitored in between and that the FET could be pushed back so I planned a much longer and more expensive "vacation" there then needed. I could have done the initial visit in town then only go up for FET and saved a lot of time, vacation days, and money. I wish they'd explain these expectations better and help out-of-towners plan, but I get that's not their priority. Overall super happy with them though!!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Geoffrey Sher at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
After my first visit, Heather, at the front desk always remembered my name - after only seeing me once! The team would personally email me and write/speak in a casual manner using my name and so forth.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Dayana)
Very kind and super communicative. She responded super quickly to every email or call and always had the information I was looking for. Her and the rest of the staff are all very nice!
How was your experience with Geoffrey Sher at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
Upon our first consultation we were absolutely sold on Dr. Sher. Our previous experience with other doctors was more cold, and all about getting down to business/treatment. Dr. Sher took the time to explain infertility and his approach, fully acknowledging we had the choice to go anywhere and this was his opportunity to explain what he was about so we could decide if he was the right fit. No hard sell. He clearly cares about what he does. He also gives out his cell number before you even sign up and his able to be contacted any time for questions. He takes each patient seriously and wants to make sure each feels comfortable. He is super warm and personable. Makes you feel he's really rooting for you. Also I felt very comfortable with his vast expertise. He's a pleasure to be around, puts you at ease.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Geoffrey Sher at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
Don't be afraid to contact him w/any questions - he's your best resource. When you go in for visits though, the time will be very quick, so you have questions then hit him w/them quickly!
Describe the protocols Geoffrey Sher used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
Dr. Sher perscribed a different medication protocol then I had w/my previous RE. He was very specific about why the previous one did not suit my condition, age, etc. He also did extra testing including a hysterscopy, fluid ultrasound, and a bunch of immunological testing to rule out other implantation issues. He was able to rule out a host of uterine/immune issues that could be causing implantation failure. He also did PGS testing on my embryos which I hadn't done before.

Consultations / phone calls w/doctor beyond the initial one are all free!!
Describe Geoffrey Sher's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
eSET was not discussed - I only had 1 viable embryo after PGS. As far as multiple we did discuss this earlier on and he said it was really our personal decision, but again we only had 1 to work with so we didn't delve to far into this topic.
