Describe your experience with Virginia Fertility Associates.
The clinic is always clean, welcoming and they often have little treats next their coffee machine which is nice on the days when you have to get stuck with needles. Plenty of parking and the clinic that does the sperm is on the floor below so you can do everything in the same place.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Anish Shah at Virginia Fertility Associates?
Dr. Shah and his team are very personable and took the time to get to know both myself and my husband and are very patient when answering our questions and concerns. I once had to call him on a weekend and I could hear him taking time away from his own family and kids to help answer my questions.

Describe the protocols Anish Shah used in your cycles at Virginia Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
We are currenty doing Femara + Ovidrel injectsion + timed intercourse, I seem to be responding better and better each month, last month I had 2 healthy folicles (one on each side about the same size) My husband does have sperm issues, the count and motility are fine but the shape are off, so that plus my PCOS makes it challenging. So far we've done this course of treatment 4 times. In the beginning I had such irregular cycles I was on Provera to induce periods, I am now having natural cycles.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Anish Shah at Virginia Fertility Associates.
