Dr. Madanes is understanding and very compassionate with my situation. I liked that he is very blunt when it comes down to telling you what’s wrong but he will make sure that he’s not rude about it. He makes sure you understand what’s going on and break it down to you. ... I only had some exams with him, which was the HSG to check on my tubes and then let me know that my only Fallopian tube left is blocked and I was ready to start taking birth control which I took for a month but then I didn’t have insurance.
It’s [Midwest Fertility Center] very cozy and not alarming and scary. It’s very welcoming! The I lay thing that feels tricky is the way of making it to the clinic part. It can confusing but, they have signs to let you know where to go. .... I loved the atmosphere in the clinic. Everybody is so nice and always welcoming. ... The nursing staff were super sweet and always asking if I was okay. Before any procedure they made sure I was okay and comfortable.

I only had some exams with him, which was the HSG to check on my tubes and then let me know that my only Fallopian tube left is blocked and I was ready to start taking birth control which I took for a month but then I didn’t have insurance. So I stocked taking them per doctors order due to not having insurance and I did not have money to continue the treatment.

Originally he [Dr. Madanes] had promised to try things I had found in clinical studies for my particular condition. But then just gave me a standard protocol. Same as all other patients...Also, had a large cyst and ended up in the emergency room. Shouldn't have done IVF. Couldn't get his help with what the ER could do to help me. Was not concerned with my well being or health...
One Ultrasound tech. [at Midwest Fert Ctr - Down Gr] She seemed to work hard and would give you data. Nurse was late getting to the clinic two times when I needed blood draws...Mark the embryologist said I had 4 frozen embryos. They were good blasts. When thawed at another clinic they were crap and couldn't survive or be genetically tested. I called a few times asking specifics about my embryo's and he struggled with his handwritten notes...

How was your experience with Amos Madanes at Midwest Fertility Center?
Never saw him after he acted like I was very intelligent in my own issues and had researched my own protocol he refused it through his nurses after we had paid to start. Also, had a large cyst and ended up in the emergency room. Shouldn't have done IVF. Couldn't get his help with what the ER could do to help me. Was not concerned with my well being or health

This is a VERY CHEAP clinic. He is set in his ways and you will not get special treatment. He will look at your chart and data but not come to any of your visits. He won't call. His Manager makes all the decisions and she is not nice.

Originally he had promised to try things I had found in clinical studies for my particular condition. But then just gave me a standard protocol. Same as all other patients. DOES NOT EVEN LET YOU DO IT ON YOUR OWN PERIOD. HE HAS A SET RETRIEVAL DAY REGARDLESS OF IT YOU ARE READY.
Describe the protocols Amos Madanes used in your cycles at Midwest Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Did a standard protocol with Gonal f, Ganirelix and Menopur. As well as a standard trigger. Did not alter anything despite low estrogen values that would get most clinics to cancel and start over.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
One Ultrasound tech. She seemed to work hard and would give you data. Nurse was late getting to the clinic two times when I needed blood draws.
Describe your experience with Midwest Fertility Center.
Strength - CHEAP Weakness - They will freeze embryos that are poor and have little to no chance of surviving even a thaw. Thus charging you a ton for freezing, storage and FET.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amos Madanes at Midwest Fertility Center.
Cheap But they added "extras" as we went that were necessary and not disclosed from the start.
