How was your experience with Amanda Skillern at Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas)?
She was candid about me having fibroids but completely focused on getting us to move forward with IUI or IVF. She never provided any other alternatives and was just matter of fact in saying that I had "unexplained infertility" -- which was most definitely not the case after a second opinion. She's a second rate doctor that should find another profession.

Go somewhere else and don't waste your time with her!! She's awful!!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amanda Skillern at Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas)?
Despite being diagnosed with fibroid (which are a KNOWN cause of infertility), she wanted us to move forward with IUI or IVF. I asked about surgery to remove them to which she replied, "No, we'll leave them in. That would be a bloody mess."
She only wanted money from us and didn't care about the outcome.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas).
They were very nice, but not organized. I got passed off to 3 different nurses for a simple blood draw. VERY weird!!!!!
Describe your experience with Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas).
They don't provide you much information, even if you ask for it regarding IUI or IVF pricing and procedures. That's a huge life decision that you don't just jump into blindly. After two weeks of calling every other day, the info they provided was only high level pricing and zero details. They need to get their stuff together!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amanda Skillern at Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas).
Initially just copays. But ended up having to pay out of pocket because they fraudulently coded my consultation as "infertility". All I went to them for was diagnostics!!! She never did ANY procedures or treatments on me.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Aspire Fertility (formerly RMA of Texas).
When seeking a second opinion, a records request was sent 3 weeks in advance. My new doctor never received any records. While sitting in the doctors office, we called them about this and they blatantly lied to us telling us it had been sent, but they'd send it over now. Still to this day, it was never received by the new doctor.
They also fraudulently coded my consultation as an "infertility" visit. Took months of working with my insurance company and back and forth with the practice manager, but was never able to get it fully resolved. Ended up having to pay out of pocket for what would have been fully covered by insurance for diagnostics because they used the word "infertility".
