he [Dr. Asante] is willing to work with you to achieve your goals, but you may not feel as "emotionally supported" as you would hope from a fertility doctor. His team is excellent though...Dr. Asante added Dexamethasone which seemed to help my ovaries produce just two follicles. I took supplements for progesterone (yam-based cream from Amazon) and to improve my lining (Fairhaven products) along with weekly acupuncture on my own, and that next cycle we fell pregnant following our first IUI with their office...
Their phlebotomy team and insurance staff and patient care coordinators [at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando] took their time with you and always tried to help you out and address your questions...Very communicative and responsive staff. They transitioned to a messaging portal by smart phone which was an adjustment, but it has allowed us to have faster feedback...
How was your experience with Albert Asante at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando?
At first, we didn't think we would go with Dr. Asante as his presentation at our teleconsult as he seemed to be pushing us toward IVF and he seemed pretty pessimistic about the IUI option that we wanted to pursue (due to my age of 37 and since we had not become pregnant yet with Letrozole/Femara at my OBGYN previously). Nonetheless, the affordability (billing through my insurance wherever possible for ultrasounds and labs, despite not having "fertility" covered by our plan) and good communication of the office staff, made us reconsider their office. They also were willing to work with us with vaccine waivers (since I had already had the vaccines as a child but no longer had high antibodies). When our first IUI cycle got cancelled due to overstimulating my follicles (I have PCOS so if they get more than 2 mature follicles, doctors start getting nervous for risk of multiples), we lost a little bit of hope but decided to try one or two more cycles. This time, Dr. Asante added Dexamethasone which seemed to help my ovaries produce just two follicles. I took supplements for progesterone (yam-based cream from Amazon) and to improve my lining (Fairhaven products) along with weekly acupuncture on my own, and that next cycle we fell pregnant following our first IUI with their office. They followed up with labs and a couple of early ultrasounds 5 and 7 weeks before graduating us to our OBGYN's office today. All in all, it was a much better experience than Brown Fertility (also in Orlando) was going to be from our communication and appointments with them. Very thankful we went with Dr. Asante and his team!
