How was your experience with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Dr. Hammoud seemed well educated with good plans of action in place. I know IVF Michigan has good success rates so I felt I could trust Dr. Hammoud & he treatment recommendations. Dr. Hammoud was the 1st doctor to actually explain that while yes, I do have PCOS, it’s likely not what’s causing my infertility fully & that I really fall under the “Unexplained” category of infertility. All other doctors have just slapped a “PCOS Label” on me & have wanted to start medicated treatments. Dr. Hammoud explained a new plan of starting IUI or IVF right away as that would be our best chances for success. As scary as it was to hear those big steps mentioned, it was refreshing after seeing so many doctors who just wanted to do round after round of medicated monitored cycles with timed intercourse & trigger shot.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Ask questions! Dr. Hammoud seemed like he had a plan of action set in place before talking to us & if I didn’t ask or say anything it probably all would have just stayed the same. When I did bring up how I think my prolactin & TSH are a little high for trying to conceive, he recommended re-testing then & was open to putting me on a low-dose thyroid medication if needed. This made me feel heard & relieved.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Dr. Hammoud listened to us during the consultation. I felt a pretty equal balance of being heard & being open to options we were suggesting as well as being set in his planned treatment ways. He seemed like he genuinely wanted to work with us & even offered us early pregnant care if we happened to get pregnant on our own prior to starting treatment as he said he sees happen to about 5% of his patients.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
IUI for a few cycles, then IVF. Or, jumping straight to IVF if we so choose.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Whoever took my initial phone call & scheduled me for the consult was amazing! She was so nice & thorough & had compassion. I don’t remember her name. The other nurses I talked to were alright. I know I was rescheduled twice due to Dr. Hammoud having meetings come up & the Covid pandemic.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
We were quoted $20,860 for IVF! We can not afford this amount. It’s frustrating too because we make too much to qualify for the “discount” they offer, but we definitely don’t make enough to be able to afford over 20k IVF treatment. IUI’s were more reasonably priced if I remember... around $700 or $800? We just aren’t sure if we are even going to be trying IUI or going straight to IVF for more of a chance.
What specific things went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The only major complaint I have is, I completed requested bloodwork after my consultation with Dr. Hammoud & submitted the results. I even talked to a nurse on the phone after I completed them who said she would be watching for them. After they were uploaded I never heard from anyone regarding moving forward with my treatment. Some of my numbers still came back high & I was hoping to hear from someone at the office regarding my elevated levels & if they would be recommending medication or not..

Dr. Hammoud was going to do multiple embryo transfer with us because we weren’t PGS testing our embryos. But he said he would decide based on the embryo quality if we only needed to do a single embryo at the time of transfer...During our consult I wanted to get a bit more information regarding what other options we had and/or why he thought we were experiencing infertility. It seemed that during the consult his main goal was to push IVF on us. We were already planning to move into IVF as a next step, but we just wanted a little bit more time to discuss and make a decision, and my husband and I both felt very pressured at the consultation to pursue IVF maybe before we were really ready to “give up” on all other treatments. Doctor Nps
$12,860 for IVF fresh transfer $4,500 for meds $1,000 for anesthesia [at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers]...The clinic is nice. The inside is inviting and calm. They have a slideshow going of different fertility procedures and the process of each one. The front office staff are nice, as well as the billing department. The setup is cool because the surgical rooms are on the left side of the clinic and the offices/consultations and lab/US rooms are on the right so it’s all split up. The recovery area after coming out of surgery was nice and private and it didn’t feel uncomfortable or rushed. Overall I think the clinic is really great.

How was your experience with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Our first experience at our consultation was not great. We felt very pushed into doing IVF. Being a younger couple, we went into our consult believing that there would be other options for us before IVF, but I didn’t feel like that was explored to the fullest extent. He seemed rushed and a bit distracted the day of our consult which wasn’t a good feeling for my husband and I. During my surgery with him he was a totally different person though. Super friendly, calm, and explained all the details of the surgery and post/op findings. I feel like maybe the day of our consult he was either having a bad day or was very busy and didn’t have a lot of time for us. Either way, the consult could’ve definitely gone better.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Go into your consultation with a list of questions you want answered and make sure you don’t leave until you have the answers you need to make an informed decision. IVF is serious, and expensive. You shouldn’t feel rushed into making a decision.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
During our initial consultation I was very frustrated and sad. I had experienced an ectopic pregnancy about a year prior and hadn’t been able to conceive since. During our IVF consultation I was preparing for my 4th IUI with a different doctor in a couple of days and he made me feel like that was pointless. During our consult I wanted to get a bit more information regarding what other options we had and/or why he thought we were experiencing infertility. It seemed that during the consult his main goal was to push IVF on us. We were already planning to move into IVF as a next step, but we just wanted a little bit more time to discuss and make a decision, and my husband and I both felt very pressured at the consultation to pursue IVF maybe before we were really ready to “give up” on all other treatments.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Started BC pills on day 3 of period, had a hysteroscopy performed under anesthesia prior to start of second menstrual cycle, started stims around day 5 of cycle. Had to stop stims on the second day due to COVID-19 as non-essential surgeries and businesses were not happening as usual. Plan to do IVF after coronavirus is under control again, so didn’t really have any results to share from that experience.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nicole was great. She did our start up class for IVF. she responded promptly to emails and phone calls and was also friendly and reassuring.

What specific things went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The nurses failed to call in my prescriptions for my injectable stims from one of the pharmacies I ordered from. Luckily, I was on top of everything so I called to pharmacy to make sure they received my script and they said they had nothing for me. I had to then call my clinic and ask them to send the script over. It was in plenty of time, luckily, but still inconvenient I had to call around to get this figured out.

I ovulated twice during prep for an egg retrieval with my first doctor. I never ovulated during prep with Dr. hammoud. With our first clinic we had zero eggs fertilize, with Dr. Hammoud and his knowledge on using calcium ionophore we were able to get 15 to fertilize the first time and 17 the second time. When our transfers didn’t take he came up with a new solution which we are in the middle of right now... was very knowledgeable. The first doctor we saw did not recognize the problem my husband had and did not know how to treat it.
The staff [at IVF Michigan] was always very friendly they always knew who I was when I called even the ladies at the front desk...Nursing staff was very helpful but at Times seemed frustrated or overworked.

Luprin wasn’t ordered on my second ER...Monitoring was between 8-930 am

Describe your experience with IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.

With Doctor Hammoud, he said that at my age and my past with multiple failed embryo transfers, he recommended 2 embryos to be transferred. We were agreeable to that... He explained everything in full detail, asked if we had any questions. Answered all the questions he could. He gave his professional opinion on matters and was quite blunt. Which I respected. My only problem was that he referred me elsewhere for a hysteroscopy with a doctor I had never met. Also he did not perform my sono-hysterogram. These 2 things caused a delay in my embryo transfer. My previous RE did both and there was no delay at all. That was the only issue I had.
My 3 nurses [at Reproductive Resource Center] were excellent. When I am done with treatment there I will truly miss them. They were compassionate, honest and caring...The price of the embryo transfer was raised from $2,900 to $4,500. The ERA was also an additional $800...The clinic was fine, really. The staff was accommodating. They offered monitoring hours from 6:30am-8:30am Monday-Friday. Which was good for those of us who work a day shift, we didn't have to be late for work. They offered monitoring on Saturday from 6am-7:30am. which was also nice. Only thing I didn't like was when you had to call the office for anything they use a centralized phone system and you wait in que for 15-30 minutes sometimes. Very frustrating.

How was your experience with Ahmad Hammoud at Reproductive Resource Center?
Dr. Hammoud was a wonderful doctor. He explained everything in full detail, asked if we had any questions. Answered all the questions he could. He gave his professional opinion on matters and was quite blunt. Which I respected. My only problem was that he referred me elsewhere for a hysteroscopy with a doctor I had never met. Also he did not perform my sono-hysterogram. These 2 things caused a delay in my embryo transfer. My previous RE did both and there was no delay at all. That was the only issue I had.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at Reproductive Resource Center?
Be prepared to receive a lot of information. Be prepared for a lot of testing. He told me that if during the preparation for a FET he saw anything that was less than perfect, I.E uterine lining, low progesterone, he would cancel the cycle. Mark his words, he will. He has all and final say over the cancelling of your cycle. He never gave us the option to just " continue on with a so-so uterine lining" He cancelled twice and redid a new calendar for us. It was frusterating at times, but he was doing what was best for us. We already had 2 failed transfers and he was not going to let that happen again.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at Reproductive Resource Center?
Dr. Hammoud treated me like a human being. When the road got rough he personally called me from his cell phone after hours to talk to me and see where my headspace was in everything. He assured me that he would do all things possible to put a baby into my arms. He called me multiple times to check in on me.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at Reproductive Resource Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Hammoud recommended a ERA to test the receptivity of my uterus. When that test was performed we found out that with my previous protocol was not appropriate for me. My uterus was non-receptive and I needed an additional 12 hours of progesterone added to my protocol. He then recommended an Immune Suppressed protocol for NK cells or recurrent miscarriage. I added low dose aspirin, Medrol (steroid), and Lovenox injections (blood thinner) to my protocol of Estrace and PIO injections.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Resource Center. (Assigned nurse: Lorrie, Tricia, Jamie)
My 3 nurses were excellent. When I am done with treatment there I will truly miss them. They were compassionate, honest and caring. During the 2 failed FET they were completely supportive, allowed me time to grieve before encouraging me to move forward. It took a year for us to do so and they were so wonderful to us. My previous RE severed ties with the healthcare system and I was thrown into Dr. Hammouds care. They were all so helpful during that transition. Because believe me it was a nightmare. They assisted me in the transport and removal of all of my embryos to Dr. Hammoud's facility at IVF Mi. They handled all of the paperwork, covered all the fees. I paid for nothing!
Describe your experience with Reproductive Resource Center.
The clinic was fine, really. The staff was accommodating. They offered monitoring hours from 6:30am-8:30am Monday-Friday. Which was good for those of us who work a day shift, we didn't have to be late for work. They offered monitoring on Saturday from 6am-7:30am. which was also nice.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Ahmad Hammoud at Reproductive Resource Center.
The price of the embryo transfer was raised from $2,900 to $4,500. The ERA was also an additional $800. I had to have a hysteroscopy, which had a $350 co-pay from the hospital. All of my medications were covered through insurance.

He [Dr. Hammoud] took the time to discuss with my husband and I our treatment options and what we wanted out of treatment. He gave us statistics but also showed he cared and was invested in our treatment...is an adequate doctor. During our initial consultation we were not impressed, but our second meeting we felt like we were working with an entirely new doctor. He was much more compassionate. We have only interacted with him these 2 times. I am mostly sticking with this doctor becaus it is one of the only fertility centers that accepts my insurance.
Most of the nursing staff [at IVF Michigan] are great. They do seem very busy so they don't always take the time to explain the treatment process...We were quoted for IVF, if necessary, at around $16k to $18k...Strengths: accept wide variety of insurance, convenient locations...Weaknesses: very quick paced and busy feeling, not every staff is compassionate, rarely see Dr. Hammoud, despite insurance it is still expensive

Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
For IUI I took Clomid for 5 days, gave myself an injection in my abdomen two days before insemination, then I took progesterone for 2 weeks. I had to delay my next round of IUI due to an ovarian cyst in which I took one month of birth control to get rid of. I am currently in my second round of IUI.

Most of the nursing staff are great. They do seem very busy so they don't always take the time to explain the treatment process. On nurse in particular, Susan, is extremely rude each time I see her.

IUI is covered under my insurance but I still have to pay a copay each time I get bloodwork and an ultrasound. We were quoted for IVF, if necessary, at around $16k to $18k.

Met with him [Dr. Ahmad Hammoud] twice. Our consult after 4 failed iui’s was brief and didn't even seem like the conversation was finished. He’s a nice man and everything, I just felt like I was looked over. After the third failed iui I feel like he should’ve tried something different.... There really wasn’t a strategy in my opinion. It was letrizol for 5 days each time and the result was the same. Then the fifth time he did a very low dose of gonal. Result was the same.
This clinic [IVF Michigan- Macomb] overall just isn’t for me. I wish they would’ve taken more time with my case or looked into it better. We don’t have a lot of sperm left now and basically are having to start over. I think that a new patient should be well researched before starting this process. There are so many things that can happen. It’s best to be well informed.... The nurses there are pretty good. One better than the other. I think because we went though iui with my wife, they thought I would just remember everything so they weren’t very informative. I asked a lot of questions. Overall they were pretty good.

There really isn’t much to say about it. Met with him twice. Our consult after 4 failed iui’s was brief and didn't even seem like the conversation was finished. He’s a nice man and everything, I just felt like I was looked over. After the third failed iui I feel like he should’ve tried something different.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Do your research and cover all the basis.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
I was put through 5 cycles with only a slight change on the 5th round of iui. I feel like I wasn’t really monitored.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
There really wasn’t a strategy in my opinion. It was letrizol for 5 days each time and the result was the same. Then the fifth time he did a very low dose of gonal. Result was the same.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses there are pretty good. One better than the other. I think because we went though iui with my wife, they thought I would just remember everything so they weren’t very informative. I asked a lot of questions. Overall they were pretty good.
Describe your experience with IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
I think I pretty much covered it previously. This clinic overall just isn’t for me. I wish they would’ve taken more time with my case or looked into it better. We don’t have a lot of sperm left now and basically are having to start over. I think that a new patient should be well researched before starting this process. There are so many things that can happen. It’s best to be well informed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
750 dollars for each iui not including ultrasounds and blood work. As well as having to pay 180.00 for the very quick consult. I’d say we have easily paid well over 8k
What specific things went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The dosage of letrizol wasn’t clear until cycle four after I asked.

Dr Hammond is very respected and straight to the point with treatment plans. He made us feel like getting pregnant was definitely achievable. I like that he doesn't pressure us to go straight to IVF but gives us other options first. ... The treatment strategies Dr Hammound used was first to test my husbands for any issues with his sperm . After my husbands test came out fine the dr wanted to do a saline soultion test to check my tubes.
Front desk [IVF Michigan] is very nice and helpful. The nurses not so much. ... A new patient would want to request deanna for a nurse she awesome ... Everytime I walked out after my appointment was done. I still dodnt fully understand what the next step was. As this being my first time going through this I would of definitely liked more explanation instead of the nurses just rushing around

How was your experience with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Dr Hammond is very respected and straight to the point with treatment plans. He made us feel like getting pregnant was definitely achievable. I like that he doesn't pressure us to go straight to IVF but gives us other options first. I wish Dr Hammound was around more when I got my iuis done. Anytime I have questions specifically to my treatment such as "am I a good candidate for mini ivf?" I have to set up another consultation for it. I dont want to walk in and the dr say no I'm not a candidate and I wasted an hour drive for an answer I could have gotten on the phone
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
He has high success rates
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
The treatment strategies Dr Hammound used was first to test my husbands for any issues with his sperm . After my husbands test came out fine the dr wanted to do a saline soultion test to check my tubes. After the saline solution was clear dr hammound put me on fermara 5mg on cycle day 3. And had me come back regularly for ultrasound and bloodwork. The fermara 5mg worked well on me and I produced 5 big follicles. Dr hammond did not feel comfortable continuing treatment and had to cancel my cycle with birth control because of the risk of multiple. After my birth control for 2 weeks I started fermara 2.5 mg so half the dose . I continued to get monitored and when the time was ready he had my take a trigger shot called overdril and me and my husband tried to conceive naturally. We waited two weeks and had a negitive pregnancy test. We repeated the steps using fermara 2.5mg and trigger shot and tried an iui. After the iui I was put on a progesterone pill for 14 days reo times s day.that cycled failed along with 2 other failed iuis . The last iui I did not use fermara but used gonal f injection instead. Now we are waiting till we can afford ivf
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Deanna was awesome. Some other nurses not so much)
I always got a different nurse when I went to the clinic. I definitely favored one nurse better than the other one. One talked to me like I was a child and the other one was very caring and compassionate. Everytime I walked out after my appointment was done. I still dodnt fully understand what the next step was. As this being my first time going through this I would of definitely liked more explanation instead of the nurses just rushing around

I only saw the doctor [Dr. Hammoud] twice, and that was during my initial consult and the saline sonogram. It seems that he is to busy to care about his patients. During the consultation he was quick to pass me off to the nurses and the same thing during the procedure. I saw him for about 2 minutes while he preformed the procedure and then it was up to the nurses to explain everything else to me. I think he needs to speak to his patients and explain what he is seeing more.
The clinic itself [IVF Michigan] is very stark and hospital like. There is not a lot of comfort in the waiting room. It is always busy and running behind. For one procedure I was not taken back until almost 2 hours after my appointment time. In the morning the blood work and ultrasounds were pretty quick, but some days they could take a long time.... The nursing staff was very good about communicating and answering questions. They were amazing at blood draws

I saw him for about 2 minutes while he preformed the procedure and then it was up to the nurses to explain everything else to me. I think he needs to speak to his patients and explain what he is seeing more.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Be ready to just deal with the nurses. You will not see the doctor very much, and don't let him push you to IVF if you are not ready.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
The consultation with the doctor was not very personal. My files had been transferred from a previous clinic as IVF of MI had taken over the previous clinic files when it closed. He had not looked at the previous files and was very quick. He pushed IVF, before any other treatments were suggested or talked about. It was like I was bothering him by being there for a consultation. He quickly pushed me off to his nurses.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
I went through IUI with Dr. Hammoud. The first cycle I was on clomid he started with a lower dose and after 5 days I had to repeat another cycle of clomid. I had 2 follicles and then did an ovadril shot to trigger before the IUI. I was then put on progesterone twice a day after the IUI. The second cycle I did a higher dose of clomid. That did not work well and they put me on meopur for the last 5 days before the ovadril trigger shot. I was then put on progesterone twice a day after the IUI.

He got right to the point and was thorough in his explanation. I am in the health field and very research based on my decisions, Dr. Hammond took time out of his day to find and send me a study done on IUI treatments.... know that you will mostly see nurses after the initial consultation... For my IUI cycle I was given an initial ultrasound by Dr. Hammond and prescribed 50mg of clomid for 5 days. I was also prescribed ovadril as a trigger shot to be used I believe a day in a half prior to my IUI.
Beautiful office. Finding which door to get into the building was a little troublesome at first. The parking lot is very busy as there are many other offices in the building. I wish they [IVF Michigan] would tell me all the fees for everything upfront rather than sending me a bill.... The only thing I am sure about the cost was the IUI which was $600. All the ultrasounds and office visits my insurance paid for a small amount so I’m not 100% sure how much those cost.

Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
For my IUI cycle I was given an initial ultrasound by Dr. Hammond and prescribed 50mg of clomid for 5 days. I was also prescribed ovadril as a trigger shot to be used I believe a day in a half prior to my IUI. A few days after finishing my last dose of clomid I went in to have a follicle check ultrasound. This ultrasound sound was done by the nurse. There was concern about me having to many follicles, and they were unsure if Dr. Hammond would want to proceed with the IUI. After some time Dr said it was ok to go ahead with the IUI if I was ok and aware of the possibility of having multiples. The Day if the IUI my husband had to go in at 9am to give his sample, then I went in at 11am for my IUI. The nurse did the IUI procedure. I was the prescribed progesterone 10mg to take daily.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

I was placed on SQ injectables, menopur and gonal f for 5 days. Then I started cetrotide until trigger.

I never had anything go ‘wrong’ during my treatment. I just felt for the thousands and thousands of dollars we invest and the stress and nemotional impact it comes with, that he communication of results or scheduling could have been more prompt. And if that is unable to be done maybe to publish results on mychart do you can view then for your self and call with questions or concerns.

He was very honest with me about my chances and what the best course of action would be. He explained everything very well and I was very involved with being able to see what was happening and fully understand it. We ended up having even better results than he had anticipated! The only downfall I would say is at times, his accent made it difficult to understand him.

We used menopur to stimulate, and the goal was to do several cycles to retrieve a good number of eggs before fertilizing (quality over quantity) as I have diminished ovarian reserve. However, we were able to retrieve 5 eggs in that first cycle, so we decided to go ahead and fertilize and start the process right away.

They were always very friendly and willing to explain what they were seeing on ultrasound and what the game plan was. They were so sympathetic and gentle with me, which is so important as all of us going through infertility treatments are in such a fragile emotional state.
Describe your experience with IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The equipment was top of the line. Staff was very accommodating and compassionate. The only thing I wish was different is the location as there was no easy way to get there for me, but that is an individual need and not something that all patients would have to deal with.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
I believe the entire procedure (stimulation, retrieval, transfer) was about $12,000. Medication was additional but we were lucky to have our insurance cover most of that cost, so that came to around $600. Then follow up labwork and ultrasounds were additional, and I believe those added up to around $2000
Describe Ahmad Hammoud's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
I only had 2 embryos that were viable at the time of transfer, and he allowed me to decide if I wanted to transfer one or both. It had been explained to me earlier that transferring both gave me a better chance of conceiving, so I went with that option.
What specific things went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
I was supposed to get a call the day after egg retrieval to let us know what the outcome was. Somehow they forgot to call us. However, when I called to check on it, a staff member went back in after hours to look and tell me the results, which was great.

I'd been rejected by another local RE Clinic because I am a single woman. I was afraid that Dr. Hammoud might judge me, too. But that was very far from the case. He was kind, soft-spoken, and supportive. Dr. Hammoud was personally involved in every step of my care from doing the ultrasounds himself, to contacting me on the weekend to let me know how my blasts we're doing. I always felt that he was giving me his best effort, and never felt that he was rushing to see another patient.
At the time, Dr. Hammoud was at a clinic in Utah. The nursing staff was tremendous, supportive, and all around wonderful.... At the same time, I firmly believe that if things hadn't worked, I would know in my heart that he did everything he could reasonaby do. Furthermore, I know he attends RE conferences, and keeps abreast of latest research and studies in his field.

How was your experience with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
Ahmad Hammoud, MD is a kind, supportive, personally-involved RE. I can never thank him enough for helping me have a child. At the same time, I firmly believe that if things hadn't worked, I would know in my heart that he did everything he could reasonaby do. Furthermore, I know he attends RE conferences, and keeps abreast of latest research and studies in his field.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
He is kind & trustworthy--and not at all pushy. If he recommends that you take the next step, trust that he isn't trying to get a bigger paycheck -- he's doing what he believes is right for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers?
I'd been rejected by another local RE Clinic because I am a single woman. I was afraid that Dr. Hammoud might judge me, too. But that was very far from the case. He was kind, soft-spoken, and supportive. Dr. Hammoud was personally involved in every step of my care from doing the ultrasounds himself, to contacting me on the weekend to let me know how my blasts we're doing. I always felt that he was giving me his best effort, and never felt that he was rushing to see another patient.
Describe the protocols Ahmad Hammoud used in your cycles at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
I don't remember specifics except that he recommended supplements: Pregnitude, L-Arginine, DHEA, Coenzyme Q 10, Melatonin. My Egg Retrieval protocol used multiple meds, but I can't remember what, except Gonal F, and Saizen. I know there were more.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Lee Cherie )
At the time, Dr. Hammoud was at a clinic in Utah. The nursing staff was tremendous, supportive, and all around wonderful.
Describe your experience with IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
Again, at the time I was his patient, Dr. Hammoud was in a clinic in Utah. The clinic and staff at the time was great: friendly, organized, prompt, great at returning phone calls, emails, etc.
Describe Ahmad Hammoud's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
I really was hoping for twins, due to my age (41/42) and the financial burden of multiple IVF cycles. He was open about his recommendation for a Single ET (he was concerned about the risks to both babies & mom of twin pregnancy and for the stress if caring for twins as a single mom); nontheless, he was agreeable to my desire for double embryo transfer.

I feel that some "extra fees" that I had to paid could have been reduced if the clinic choose different companies (anesthesia services).

Describe the costs associated with your care under Ahmad Hammoud at IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The only part of Dr. Hammoud's services that was covered by insurance was the ultrasounds and bloodwork. I feel that everything else was a bit pricey. My round of IVF cost roughly $19,000 without the cost of medications or PGS testing of embryos.

Have organized list of questions you want answered whenever you have appointment with him [Dr. Hammoud]...Time with doctor felt rushed. I wasn’t always confident he took time to completely understand my case. He is kind and compassionate but always felt like I was being “sold” to do another cycle of retrieval...Estrogen priming protocol in attempt to improve egg quantity and quality. Quantity was good but quality was not.
[The nurses at IVF Michigan were] Very helpful and good with communication prior to retrieval. Always took time to answer my questions and make sure I understood...Clinic should have been more communicative post retrieval to give us expectations of genetic testing process and when we would hear from them or know anything. When we did get an appointment, doctor didn’t have our results and we had to wait longer.

Describe your experience with IVF Michigan Fertility Centers.
The volume the clinic has is both a strength and weakness; they know what they’re doing but you could get lost in the shuffle. We did not have success with treatment but that is not the clinics fault (low AMH and no normal embryos). The thing that was very disappointing is that clinic staff did a poor job communicating post retrieval.

Dr Hamoud is great! I think he would be the right doctor for someone. Just not a women in her mid 40’s. He only wanted to push egg donation and would not consider anything else because he has never been successful with a woman over 45 and using her own eggs. I think that he should allow the patient to make a choice about their route of treatment Instead of forcing his beliefs...He seemed to be knowledgeable in his field. As I stated before he was not compassionate enough about my fertility issues and just wanted to do things his way.

Even if it meant traveling...[Nursing Staff] Some were rude and some were great!...However IVf with genetic testing using my own eggs was quoted at $20,000 Tunis’s donor eggs was $16,000...Dr Hamoud wanted to go straight to egg donation.

Dr. Hammoud was very straightforward and laid out our options. We have severe male factor infertility and a genetic issue and he was very realistic about our chances using other assisted reproductive techniques, so he said the best chance he could give us was IVF and he was quite optimistic for us. Having a plan right away and being able to take action quickly was exactly what we were looking for!
The clinic [IVF Michigan] is not super busy and it's easy to get an appointment. The staff is lovely. The only issue sometimes is finding a parking spot... I'm using gonal-F 150u daily and menopur 150u daily, then toward the end adding cetrotide 0.25 daily, with novarel trigger 10,000 units....With our cycle, including ICSI and PGS it was about $19k. Medications were an additional $3.5k

Dr. Hammoud was a fantastic doctor and he treated me well. He was willing to try any and all procedures that I wished to try. He gave realistic expectations for the outcome of each procedure. I was pregnant within seven months of seeing him.... I had three IUIs medicated with Menopur. The were unsuccessful. Due to undetectable AMH we moved straight to donor eggs from there. Since I had only been producing one follicle with each IUI. The IVF cycle with donor eggs worked. Two fresh embryos were transferred and I had twins.
There was a long wait time some days but when you are with the care team, you are treated as an individual and not just a number. When you have good results, everyone is happy. When things don’t go well, the staff [IVF Michigan] empathizes with you.... Nursing staff performed well with a lot of patients. I had to catch ovulation a few times on OPKs but they got me in for labs, etc when needed.... I believe our fresh cycle with donor eggs was $14,000. IUIs were only $500.

I feel like he [Dr. Ahmad Hammoud] gave me expectations that weren't realistic and then when said he would help me with more affordability he came back with numbers higher than I was told before. Was told I wasn't owed anything even though I got a low amount of eggs from the donor and none left to freeze...I felt they cared but was told they didn't owe me anything after paying over 30k giving me two embryos ending in a miscarriage

We saw the doctor [Dr. Ahmad Hammoud] a week later and he nonchalantly said you should use donor eggs. I think your eggs are not good. He then handed us a book of 5 women, none that even looked like me and said it doesn't matter if the child looks like you. We left and never went back
The receptionist/ billing [at IVF Michigan] is rude. We had our egg retrieval which was 3 mature eggs. No one called or updated us during the 5 day embryo growth days. The day of transfer, we made the trek to office. They had me put on the gown similar assumed my babies were strong. They came in and said, " none of your embryos made it" It was devastating.
