I love having Dr. Stanic-Kostic as my primary. He has demonstrated several times that he won’t leave our appointment until we are comfortable and have asked all our questions. He has brought in studies and data even to help explain and share why certain results may have fluctuated between tests. He is very careful with sharing he different sides to think about without making me feel guilted into picking a certain option. It is a perfect example of sharing data, and advising but leaving the ball in our court. He is very honest based on research which I respect. That said he is very empathic. Ive never felt like a burden with him even when I have hundreds of questions.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Come prepared with your questions and get them to him ahead of time. Prepare to listen and get the answers throughout his explanation vs in numerical order. Also plan for extra time longer than your appointment since he will take time to give extensive answers to help you understand.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We were never rushed and he always took the time to answer all of my 100+ questions. He even called me from his child’s sporting event to help explain some results to me that I was really worried about. He expresses empathy and always makes me feel like he did his homework and gives me facts and research so I feel like I am making the decision but at the same time know his expert opinion too
Describe the protocols Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We did two rounds of letrozole with IUI and now are going into IVF
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff has been amazing. They reply to my questions so quickly and are great at making me feel comfortable through being available to get my questions answered timely.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The environment is comfortable and the staff is very friendly. I’ve enjoyed everyone so far I’ve worked with. I also like the information packets they have available on the specific IUI and IVF treatments. I wish I would’ve asked for these upfront to help me not ask my 100 questions when I was still trying to decide the treatment route I may be comfortable with. I communicate a lot over Mychart with this clinic and it has been a life saver with trying to communicate and get my questions to the clinic while still working. Take advantage of this great tool and their service. I also enjoyed how the resources were all right there at the one location for the psychology support and the financial advisement too.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
IVF package price for cycle one is just under $12,000; excluding medicine which is expected to be $3-6k. Also excludes the embryo cryopreservstion and storage which is $725 was our $58 per month; excludes a frozen sperm backup which is additional $315 plus $33 monthly. IVF round 2 with the frozen embryos is $3,690 with medicine being additional $500-1500. Plus uterine mapping charge of $470. Don’t forget the sperm frozen backup cost if needed and the monthly fees you may still have from left over embryos. IUI was partially covered under our insurance so I can’t remember the cost breakdown.

Dr. Stanic-Kostic talks a lot, but this is a positive because he spends as much time as necessary with every patient to answer all questions and provide as much information (and reassurance) as possible.

How was your experience with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We went to Generations after a lot of wasted time and money with another clinic. From the time we walked in the door for our first visit, we were treated with respect, and not like just another number. Dr. Stanic-Kostic spent a LONG time just talking to us, asking questions about our history, and explaining everything in great detail. He was very personable and understanding. The main reason we'd left the previous clinic was that they had refused to do ANY testing with either my husband or I, and just continued to put me on very high doses of medication. Dr. Stanic-Kostic agreed that this was not appropriate, and immediately ordered testing for both of us. For me, this included a hysteroscopy and saline sonogram to rule out any fibroids or abnormalities (that came back totally clear). My husband did a semen analysis, which showed only 1% morphology (but a very high overall count and excellent motility). However, with morphology being so low, our chances of becoming pregnant without IUI or IVF were very slim (this is why none of the treatments were successful with the previous clinic). The staff at Generations did a wonderful job of explaining the results to us and then helped us to plan a course of action, which was to include oral meds, injectable meds, and then and IUI. If that didn't work, we would move on to IVF. However, just two weeks later (while we were getting ready to order the injectable meds to start the IUI cycle) I found out I'm pregnant! I'm now 19 weeks along with a healthy baby girl! I truly believe that the hysteroscopy made the difference and that had that been done before, we would have avoided a lot of expense and heartache. I regret that we didn't come to Generations sooner.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Do not hesitate to make an appointment to see him! The only drawback is that he only works there 1 day per week (he's at UW the rest of the time). However, if he is not available, the other doctors in the clinic are, so you are always in good hands. Also, he is often running behind schedule for his appointments, but trust me this is a GOOD thing. It is because he takes as much time as necessary with every patient, and will not leave you until he is sure that you are feeling comfortable and informed. He is absolutely worth the wait.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
We received AMAZING care at Generations. From the receptionists to the nurses and doctors, we were treated with nothing but compassion, professionalism, and attentiveness. Dr. Stanic-Kostic talks a lot, but this is a positive because he spends as much time as necessary with every patient to answer all questions and provide as much information (and reassurance) as possible.
Describe the protocols Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
I had a hysteroscopy and saline infused sonogram, which found no abnormalities. However I believe it was successful in flushing out debris left from my previous miscarriage, as I ended up getting pregnant shortly after the procedure. Had this NOT been successful, the plan was to do a cycle with letrozole and injectable FSH with an ovidrel trigger and IUI. This would have also included a baseline ultrasound on cycle day 3 and a follicle scan. Dr. Stanic is very cautious and will cancel a cycle if there are more than 2 mature follicles.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
After finding out I was pregnant, I called the nurse at Generations, who was AMAZING. She completely understood my anxiety, given my previous miscarriage, and offered me blood draws and a 7 week ultrasound to ease my mind. And when my primary doctor (at Dean Clinic) messed up and mistakenly told me my blood levels were not rising appropriately, the nurse at Generations was right there to advocate for me, talk me through my panic, and get the issue straightened out immediately. When we came in for the 7 week ultrasound, she cried tears of joy right along with us as we saw that little heartbeat on the screen, presented us with a "Congratulations" card, and hugged us both. When this baby is born, I plan to send in pictures and a thank you card.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The clinic is very clean and professional and the lobby has a relaxing calming atmosphere.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Due to lack of insurance coverage (the clinic is out of network) we paid 50% up to a $2000 lifetime maximum and 100% for medications. Prices were very comparable to other clinics in the region.

He is straight to the point, which I really appreciated. the clinic works in a rotation setting, so I only saw Dr. Stanic-Kostic a couple of times. But I really enjoyed my time with him when I did visit him. He would always talk through what he was doing and explain each step. He is pretty blunt, so if that's not your style you may want to try to meet with others in the office. After my hysteroscopy he was very forward with making sure I understood that this could take some time and to be ready for the long haul.

ask questions, he has a lot of knowledge and is willing to share!
Describe the protocols Aleksandar Stanic-Kostic used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
I was on a 10 day cycle of 5mg of Letrozole. I would take the meds day 3-13. I would come in to be monitored around day 13 to make sure I had a mature folical, then take a Hcg trigger shot to have the egg drop.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
they are great. open and willing to communicate. The number one complaint I had was it could sometime take a few hours to get back to me when I called. Not a huge deal, but could be stressful if you were low on meds or started your cycle day.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
you get a doctor, but every time you come in you see a provider. the actual provider I was assigned to was an NP, but I only ever saw her once. It worked for me, but if you want a tight relationship, this may not be the place. I enjoyed everyone I saw, but never felt bonded with anyone specifically.
