Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
Infertility is such a hard thing to deal with. It's important to separate your own anxiety and frustration and sadness with the situation from your experiences at the clinic. The people on the staff here, from the front desk to the doctors, the billing department, etc, are all motivated to help you be successful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari felt like a partner on this journey. He knew our situation; he was enthusiastic and supportive throughout.
Describe your experience with your nurse at South Jersey Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Valerie)
The nursing staff was wonderful. They were compassionate, supportive, and knowledgeable.
How was your experience with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari was very knowledgeable, but also willing to explain and consider information I may have brought to him- uterine biopsies, for example, to test the implantation window, even though that test doesn't usually reveal a problem. He listened, offered his expertise, and devised a plan of action. He was always willing to reassure or console.
Describe the protocols Oumar Kuzbari used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
After two failed rounds of donor egg embryo transfers, Dr. Kuzbari worked with us to test for implantation timing. It turns out we need an additional 36 hours of progesterone prep- almost unheard of, but we implanted with twins!
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at South Jersey Fertility Center.
There were morning "monitoring hours" that were standard each day, for specific procedures, like blood draws and ultrasounds. However, I also found that they were willing to try to accommodate alternative appointments when possible.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center.
As a NJ schoolteacher, my insurance covered the majority of my costs. There were a few tests that were out of pocket, like the implantation biopsy, and the donor fee was also out of pocket.
Describe Oumar Kuzbari's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at South Jersey Fertility Center.
Given my age and previous failures, we discussed multiple embryo transfer.
