Dr. Rodriguez was very friendly and sensitive to the fact that we hadn’t been able to get pregnant. He was clear and concise about the procedures I would undergo, and never rushed anything, even though I was anxious to get started. He recommended I have an ultrasound of my uterus done before IUI to rule out any other problems, and it was there that I found out that I had uterine polyps. He never rushed me during appointments or made me feel like a number. He even answered the millions of questions my mom had for him as well! :)

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Alfred Rodriguez at Texas Infertility and IVF?
Go in there with an open mind. Although the doctor and nurses may be hopeful, always keep a level headed mindset that sometimes things don’t always work the way you want them to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Alfred Rodriguez at Texas Infertility and IVF?
The nurses were so caring and kind towards my individual situation. I felt like they truly knew me and remembered details about my personal life. Especially Linda!!
Describe the protocols Alfred Rodriguez used in your cycles at Texas Infertility and IVF and their degree of success.
I was to take a medication that would promote follicle growth. I had to go in for sonograms to see if the follicles had begun growing. 24 hours before the planned IUI time, I was instructed to give myself the injection into my belly. After the IUI procedure, we did blood work about a week after to test progesterone levels, and then another blood test a week after that for the actual pregnancy test. Both IUI procedures failed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I absolutely loved everyone from the women who just took my blood to Linda, who actually performed one of the IUI procedures. She was like a mother to me, so caring and compassionate, especially when calling me to tell me that the IUI procedures were unsuccessful.
Describe your experience with Texas Infertility and IVF.
There were a few issues with billing/payment. 2-3 times I was billed and asked to pay copays, when I shouldn’t have. The staff quickly fixed the issue. The attitude of every staff member I came across was very positive and welcoming.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Alfred Rodriguez at Texas Infertility and IVF.
The total cost for each IUI procedure was $900. This included all appointments with Dr. Rodriguez, blood work, and the actual IUI procedure. This price did not include the medication which I had to purchase from a pharmacy, totaling about $200.

His protocol was different than my previous fertility doctor, he made sure he looked at everything very carefully. I required two surgeries after my retrieval to remove fibroids and he made sure it was done meticulously. We are currently in the process of doing a frozen transfer next month.

Dr. Rodriguez was incredible. I saw him at nearly every visit and he always greeted me with a smile and knew my name/where we were.... Again, cannot express how wonderful of a doctor he was. We experienced a full term loss before needing his services, so he was extremely sensitive and compassionate to that situation. He took so much time to explain processes to me and my husband.

Dr. Rodriguez was incredible. I saw him at nearly every visit and he always greeted me with a smile and knew my name/where we were.
Describe the protocols Alfred Rodriguez used in your cycles at Texas Infertility and IVF and their degree of success.
My treatment first started with a hysteroscopy to eliminate fibroids and endometrial tissue. Following that surgery, I began prep for my egg retrieval using several injectables (I don't remember all the names). A few months after my retrieval, we proceeded with the transfer of one embryo.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Texas Infertility and IVF. (Assigned nurse: Linda)
Just as wonderful as the doctor. They were punctual, professional and encouraging to me. They also understood every step of the process and explained things to me whenever I had a question.
Describe your experience with Texas Infertility and IVF.
I never waited more than ten minutes for an appointment and could always reach a nurse when I needed to. They always called back promptly if I left a message. The office also had Saturday appointments available when I needed them before my retrieval. Children were not allowed in the waiting room, which I thought was a very sensitive philosophy for them to follow for patients who did not have other children.

Describe the protocols Alfred Rodriguez used in your cycles at Texas Infertility and IVF and their degree of success.
We starting with stimulation of egg development (sorry, I forget the drugs - all injectables), followed by a trigger shot and IUI. I was developing too many eggs and we had to abandon a cycle, so Dr. R. recommended we move to IVF. We started with Lupron, then the injectables to develop the follicles, followed by the trigger shot and retrieval. Started IM progesteron in oil following the retrieval to keep my lining intact. We transferred on day 3.
