How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
I was so happy to have found Dr. Troche and his team. They are a small fertility clinic but every person that works there shows 100% focus on me when I am there. I can tell that the clinic communicates internally very well because each person I work with knows where I am at in my process. They always cover all questions even before I knew that I would have that question. At first they were very reserved in my treatment plan until I said I wanted to be more aggressive. The next time we discussed treatment Dr. Troche understood my schedule and adjusted the treatment plan to be much more aggressive. I trust this clinic more than I have ever trusted a doctor and his team. They are wonderful!

Clinic strengths were very affordable, efficient and upfront. Weaknesses were the front desk phone people could be rude sometimes. The clinic [Troche Fertility Centers] isn't the fanciest so when you walk in they seem not as technology updated but they were and they did everything on site which was nice.... Cycle was around 11k, meds were 4.5k. All ultrasounds were included, retrieval and transfer included, ISCI included. Meds were just the fertility meds. All the steroids, baby aspirin, vitamins, and such were separate at any old pharmacy. Blood work was extra (sent to an outside lab).

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mercedes Gondra at Troche Fertility Centers?
They were nice and despite being very busy always answered me quickly and honestly
Describe your experience with your nurse at Troche Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Kori Garcia)
The care coordinator was responsible for most of the interaction I had with the clinic. She was fantastic. Although she did have a 'tell' of sorts. If she had bad news she would call later in the day. So I knew when she didn't call early it wasn't going to be good news. Ann did the endometrial scratch and the ultrasounds to check on the progress of the hormones.
How was your experience with Mercedes Gondra at Troche Fertility Centers?
She was very honest. She was clear in her treatment and confident. She was very blunt which I like but may be off putting to some. She was pretty involved in the cycles. She was not at every appointment. She did not do all my procedures due to insurance issues. Dr. Troche filled in on the retrieval and transfer. She is no longer at the practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mercedes Gondra at Troche Fertility Centers?
Be prepared for her bluntness. She was very compassionate though.
Describe the protocols Mercedes Gondra used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Pre-cycle was 5 weeks of birth control.I was on ganirelix (to prevent ovulation), menopur and follistim. I had low amh so I was on very high doses of follistim and menopur. I was also on baby aspirin, steroids, antibiotics, and a drug to lower my prolactin levels. I was on progesterone suppositories because I had a needle fear and didn't want to do progesterone in oil.

Describe Mercedes Gondra's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Troche Fertility Centers.
We did multiple embryos due to the fact that we did not have many embryos and they might not have made it to freeze.

How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
I loved the clinic and all of the staff. I went there for multiple years and when I miscarried, everyone was so supportive. If it wasn’t for Dr. Troche and his wonderful staff, I wouldn’t have my beautiful 3 year old son. I am very greatful for each and everyone there.

Be patient. Infertility is a long process but Dr. Troche is amazing and will definitely get you there.
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
We started out with Clomid to help with ovulation. Then we moved onto a different oral medication. When those didn’t work we went to injections along with a trigger shot. That worked on the 3rd or 4th try but I miscarried. We did one more round with no luck. Then my husband and took a year off from trying. When we went back we did 2 more rounds of injections with no luck. They told me we had little chance of conceiving so we moved to IVF. First round of IVF resulted in my son.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
Leading up to my IVF, my insurance covered everything. For my cycle of IVF , they some how got my medication approved through my insurance so I didn’t have to pay for that. They gave me a military discount so I only paid 8000 for my fresh cycle of IVF
Describe Vladimir Troche's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Troche Fertility Centers.
Dr. Troche only put in one embryo because he said that 2 wouldn’t be safe. He was worried about me carrying multiples and since I was only 28, he didn’t see a point to adding in more.
