How was your experience with Ali Guerami at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Guerami has extensive experience in reproductive endocrinology, and he is very candid in his expectations for treatment and the likelihood that the treatment will be successful. I especially appreciate that Dr. Guerami is passionate about educating the patient on what will occur during each of the treatment sessions and providing options, based on the risks. Dr. Guerami does have an accent, so it may be difficult to fully understand him 100% of the time, but he is patient and will repeat himself to ensure that his patients understand their treatment, the steps for treatment, and the expected outcomes for the treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ali Guerami at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr. Guerami is not a Texan, so don't expect the deep fried Southern hospitality of a Texan. Instead, be open to his style of working and his personality - he truly does care about his patients and wants to be confident that you understand the why before the how.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Heidi)
Heidi is the best. She's absolutely awesome and a great complement to Dr. Guerami's style. She's warm, friendly, and patient, and she wants to be sure that you are comfortable with the treatment that she and the doctor are providing. I've never been in the same room with Dr. Guerami and Heidi, but they seem to make a good team!
Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.
I enjoy going to Dr. Guerami's clinic on Walnut Hill because it's not as busy at the Frisco clinic. The Frisco clinic has the lab and is where the IUIs and IVFs are performed, but it is almost a machine, just based on how much goes on in the offices. However, Dr. Guerami has his own set up on Walnut Hill, and I rarely feel rushed there because it's so small and he's the only doctor in that office.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ali Guerami at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Many times, the front desk would call and tell me my upcoming payment for upcoming visits, but I have received a few bills after the fact. I'm assuming this is due to insurance settlements.
Describe Ali Guerami's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Dr. Guerami is adamant that a woman's body is meant to hold one child at a time during pregnancy, and he will not implant two embryos during one IVF cycle. He would prefer that you have a healthy singleton pregnancy that you can carry to term than multiples that may be delivered early and will be in the NICU after being born.
