Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She [Dr. Seungdamrong] was friendly, patient, able to walk us through the details of each procedure. She took her time answering our questions, she was available by phone and was honest in the results we could expect through each step...Her first suggestion was to try a few IUI procedures because the tests so far had shown I did not have any tube blockage or ovary cysts
My first IUI cycle [at Damien] I showed up for the insemination and the nurse asked me if I took the egg release and I had never been told of that being a part of the procedure and I had never received the script for it. Having to pay out of pocket for that procedure with such an integral piece of the puzzle missing was very frustrating...The staff as a whole is friendly, well organized and easy to communicate with.
How was your experience with Aimee Seungdamrong at Damien Fertility Partners?
She was very detailed in her explanation of what each test would involve and it’s purpose early on. During appointments and testing she helped put my fears at ease. Her gentle nature sometimes may have given me some false hope early one, but I still appreciated her gentle nature. Especially in a new situation like the one my husband and I found ourselves in. She always made sure she gave us time to discuss options, or make decisions, asked questions to provoke some conversation when we didn’t know what to ask.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Aimee Seungdamrong at Damien Fertility Partners?
Just to be proactive early on, some steps of the IUI process I think I could have asked more questions when I was confused. Be your own advocate.

Describe the protocols Aimee Seungdamrong used in your cycles at Damien Fertility Partners and their degree of success.
Her first suggestion was to try a few IUI procedures because the tests so far had shown I did not have any tube blockage or ovary cysts. I took Clomid before going in for the procedure. However the first cycle I was never sent the Avagel script for the release so it was all done on a prayer and timing.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Damien Fertility Partners.
Everyone was friendly, able to answer questions.
Describe your experience with Damien Fertility Partners.
The staff as a whole is friendly, well organized and easy to communicate with. There is only one lady who handles all the IVF information so we got hung up on a few things waiting for calls back from her a few times. There were a few surprise payments we owed when we showed up for appointments which took some time for them to explain.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aimee Seungdamrong at Damien Fertility Partners.
Nothing was covered we paid out of pocket for all appts, tests and IUI procedures. This year I switched to my own insurance which covers partial
Describe Aimee Seungdamrong's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Damien Fertility Partners.
Based on my age she only suggests single embryo transfers.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Dr. Seungdamrong always took the time to discuss our options with us and was always patient and welcoming with any questions I had during our appointments as well as when I would call to ask questions...She has a great bedside manner...always tells us that we can contact her with any questions... She is there at all our appointments when a Dr. is needed...You can tell that she cares very much about what she does and I've never felt like a number but as a patient.
Their [Damien Fertility Partners] office hours worked well with ours and they were always so helpful when making appointments. If I ever had any emergency questions during non office hours or on the weekends I can be connected to the operator that will let a nurse or Dr. know to contact me within an hour to assist me...The clinic has 3 locations; Newark, Jersey City and Shrewsbury which made it easy for my husband and I to visit 2 of the 3 locations.

Describe Aimee Seungdamrong's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Damien Fertility Partners.
Dr Seungdamrong's approach was for eSET. She explained to us the risks of possibly carrying multiples and how she felt that a single embryo transfer would be better for the health of the child and mother over the risk of carrying twins and possibly risking an early pregnancy or health of 1 or more of the children and mother.

Dr. Aimee did our initial consultation where we discussed and outlined our plan. Following that, we spoke virtually and I went in for cycle visits with the nurses at the office. Dr. Aimee was also very accessible to answer any questions in the Portal and always responded to any messages. Any requests we made, Dr. Aimee made sure they happened. Dr. Aimee also performed my Hysteroscopy as well....
The nurse team [at Kindbody] was very accessible and communicative. They were able to speak with me every time I needed and were very helpful along the way...The clinic is open and honest about pricing and has all prices on their website. They are responsive in the message portal and communicate well. In person you always have a good experience and the clinics are beautiful inside...IUI with donor sperm is around $1900. Clomid was $10 with insurance. Shipping the sample was 375 through Fairfax cryobank...

Never saw or spoke to [Dr. Seungdamrong]. She blindly prescribed my medication protocol and I was given vague, cookie-cutter instructions by "care navigators" and nurses. I felt very unsafe with this lack of physician interaction so I decided to seek a second opinion at a more reputable clinic...I continually requested to speak with the physician but was never able to get a hold of her.
All of the nurses and other staff are very nice and friendly and seem to be doing their best, but each visit or phone call left me feeling so confused and uncomfortable...egg freezing costs $6500 per cycle (not including meds)...Kindbody is great in theory by attempting to modernize fertility care and make it more accessible and empowering to young professional women. The clinic is beautiful and super instagram-able, but it seems they're focusing too much on their cool, millennial aesthetic.

Good luck trying to get in touch with her or any other physician at Kindbody.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Aimee Seungdamrong at Kindbody?
This clinic is extremely disorganized and treated me completely like a number. I never saw or spoke to this physician or any other physician at Kindbody. I was trying to freeze my eggs, and over the course of a few months, was given confusing and misleading instructions by "care navigators" and "nurses", who I'm honestly not even sure if/what their credentials were. I continually requested to speak with the physician but was never able to get a hold of her. She even prescribed me a full protocol of fertility medications without her ever seeing me or reviewing my current medication list--I even had to specifically call and make sure that she reviewed them prior to my initiating the injections....that was the biggest red flag that prompted me to seek a second opinion.

Describe your experience with Kindbody.
Kindbody is great in theory by attempting to modernize fertility care and make it more accessible and empowering to young professional women. The clinic is beautiful and super instagram-able, but it seems they're focusing too much on their cool, millennial aesthetic. Most importantly, they put far too much responsibility on nurses and the (unknown credentialed) care navigators, with seemingly minimal oversight by physicians. While this may be financially beneficial to the company, it poses an extreme risk to the patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aimee Seungdamrong at Kindbody.
egg freezing costs $6500 per cycle (not including meds). Since I didn't proceed with my cycle, but got some bloodwork and ultrasounds done at the clinic, I'm not sure yet what I will be charged....
