Describe the protocols Alfred Rodriguez used in your cycles at Texas Infertility and IVF and their degree of success.
I have an extremely complex case. We did test after test to make sure my body was completely ready to have a transfer. I wound up having two surgeries by Dr. Rodriguez to remove uterine fibroids and he got them all out. We always did a frozen transfer because we did PGD/PGS testing on our embryos because I have a chromosome disorder. We did injectables, the estrogen patches and progesterone shots. I don’t remember how long or how much. We also did a special biopsy that tells you exactly when the transfer needs to occur. After all of that we were ready to transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Texas Infertility and IVF. (Assigned nurse: Linda, Angela, Lorraine)
All of the ladies were amazing! Linda was always very informative and was very honest, but in a compassionate way ( which was refreshing). She was very thorough and explained everything she was doing and what I was looking at. Angela and Lorraine were equally amazing very understanding and helped ease nerves. After going to them for so long you get to know them all pretty well as they also get to know you pretty well. So they would all always ask how my family and I were doing.
Describe your experience with Texas Infertility and IVF.
Strengths are that they are a 1 doctor clinic. I cannot tell you how much I love that. You always see your doctor, which is so great because you get to build a relationship with them and it is just much more personal. Another strength is they just have such an amazing team from Dr. Rodriguez all the way to the receptionist. I honestly cannot think of any weaknesses. One thing I would tell another patient is these processes take time so be patient and they will do everything they can to try and help you conceive.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Texas Infertility and IVF.
I loved having Linda do my monitoring appointments. She learned certain things about me so she knew exactly what to look for and how to navigate around obstacles.

Describe Alfred Rodriguez's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Texas Infertility and IVF.
Dr. Rodriguez always said they are our embryos and would never tell us what we were to do with them or how many (unless and excessive amount). He always told me what he suggested for my personal case which was to transfer one. He told me the risks of transferring multiple embryos and the risk of carrying multiples. He let me make an informed decision after giving me every detail of all scenarios. I listened to his advice and only transferred one at a time.
