She [Dr. Abbaa Sarhan] spoke quickly and assumed we understood the process even though we were very new in our infertility journey...Our second IUI was triggered late with low estrogen for the existing follicles, had hcg in my system from a previous cycle, follicle on right was overcooked and left were not ready. We didn't receive calls when promised to receive pregnancy results...We didn't feel we had enough information to make informed decisions.
Since we were new in our fertility journey, we were in a vulnerable state. Our second IUI [at Columbia Fertility Associates] was triggered late with low estrogen for the existing follicles, had hcg in my system from a previous cycle, follicle on right was overcooked and left were not ready. We didn't receive calls when promised to receive pregnancy results and had to wait another 24 hours to receive results. We didn't have the information to get the HCG shot when we needed it for the trigger. We didn't feel we had enough information to make informed decisions.
How was your experience with Abbaa Sarhan at Columbia Fertility Associates?
We had two IUI's and the nurse said she would facilitate the insemination and both times, it was another doctor who I've never met. Since we were new in our fertility journey, we were in a vulnerable state. Our second IUI was triggered late with low estrogen for the existing follicles, had hcg in my system from a previous cycle, follicle on right was overcooked and left were not ready. We didn't receive calls when promised to receive pregnancy results and had to wait another 24 hours to receive results. We didn't have the information to get the HCG shot when we needed it for the trigger. We didn't feel we had enough information to make informed decisions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Abbaa Sarhan at Columbia Fertility Associates?
She does mean well, however, the practices of this clinic are not acceptable. I would recommend to go to another clinic.

She spoke quickly and assumed we understood the process even though we were very new in our infertility journey.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Columbia Fertility Associates.
Columbia had a nurse shortage so we had to bounce around between clinics to facilitate our fertility cycle. It seemed as though the nurses were inconvenienced by us asking questions.
Describe your experience with Columbia Fertility Associates.
Their strength is that you can go in for blood work from 7am to 9am so it can fit in your work schedule. The front desk nurse at Arlington is helpful. Be sure to ask lots of questions to the doctors and nurses.

IUI's were around $1500 with no help from insurance.
