She [Dr. Schutt] is very intelligent and very much loves what she does. I loved how knowledgeable she was and that she is constantly learning and staying on top of all the new research. I completely trusted her and her recommendations the whole time and she is huge on patient advocacy. Our protocol worked perfectly (ended up with 4 euploid embryos) and had success on the first try...
Nurse Bobbie [at Baylor / Texas Childrens] was absolutely incredible. She completely made the experience at the clinic what it was and her care and compassion was so genuine...She was super responsive and answered everything thoroughly and timely. Even when other nurses would answer on Bobbie’s days off, everything was answered super quickly...
How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Schutt is amazing and highly recommend. I very much love to have all of the science and information and she provided it all. She is very intelligent and very much loves what she does. I loved how knowledgeable she was and that she is constantly learning and staying on top of all the new research. I completely trusted her and her recommendations the whole time and she is huge on patient advocacy. Our protocol worked perfectly (ended up with 4 euploid embryos) and had success on the first try.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Trust Dr Schutt. She is 100% worth the wait and pricing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Schutt had a calm and reassuring demeanor and always happy to answer all questions. I never felt like a number.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
While I am 36, I have no infertility diagnosis, our only issue was MFI (my AMH was even good at 4.3), so my protocol was very straight forward and minimal. I started my ER cycle with birth control until I was ready for stims to start (they even helped to manipulate my cycle based on a big work trip). I started with Menopur & Gonal and then as I progressed, Cetrotide was added in. I responded so well that I ended up only taking meds for 8 days (instead of 9) and triggered a day early. I was at a slight risk for OHSS, so they had me do a double trigger (Lupron and HCG). I started with 14 follicles under 9mm and ended up with 32 follicles between 10mm and 23mm. In total, I got 22 eggs, 19 were mature, 17 fertilized with ICSI, and ended up with 6 blasts (one day 5 and six day 6). After PGT-A testing I had 4 euploids, 2 boys and 2 girls. Schutt only offers frozen transfers and also requires a cycle off in between ER and FET as a cooling off period from hormones so that the body can recover. The month of FET, I started with estrogen patches and then 5 days before FET, added in PiO and Crinone suppositories. First try was a success (so far) and am currently graduated from the clinic and am 11 weeks pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Baylor / Texas Childrens. (Assigned nurse: Bobbie)
Nurse Bobbie was absolutely incredible. She completely made the experience at the clinic what it was and her care and compassion was so genuine. I found myself looking the most forward to seeing her after procedures! She was super responsive and answered everything thoroughly and timely. Even when other nurses would answer on Bobbie’s days off, everything was answered super quickly.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I had a fantastic experience at FFC. Every single person from billing, genetics counseling, nurses, doctors, residents and even the front desk were the best of the best. I truly felt so taken care of, that I was sad to leave!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Self pay pricing was $18,500 for one ER cycle and one FET cycle. Everything was included (procedures, monitoring, blood work, office visits, testing, etc) except embryo biopsy, PGT-A testing, medicine, and anesthesia. PGT-A Testing (6 embryos) - $1200 from Igenomix Biopsy - $800 Anesthesia- $750 ER meds (IVF Pharmacy) $3,000 FET meds $300-500. Genetic Carrier Test (Invitae) $250 (for both people together)
Describe Amy Schutt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Schutt only offers single embryo transfers to the best of my knowledge.

How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Schutt was condescending and acted like I should be grateful just to be in her office instead of acknowledging all of the frustrations I had gone through (secondary infertility as a result of a missed complication from my first pregnancy). She was very cold during the consult and would randomly ask to see photos of my daughter or husband during inappropriate parts of the consult such as discussing my previous surgical history which felt forced and uncomfortable (and not medically relevant). Her documentation/note of my appointment also included many factual inaccuracies (she misdated when I underwent specific medical workup, when my daughter was conceived, and when I delivered my daughter). She also scheduled a procedure for me and then called two weeks later to cancel without providing a further or alternative treatment option. Overall it was a horrible experience that I still shudder thinking about, I am forever grateful that I did not continue my fertility treatment under her care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Change your appointment to be with a different provider.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Dr. Schutt's office changed the time of my appointment by multiple hours the morning of the scheduled appointment and I had to ask a co-worker to cover for me to make it to the appointment. The entire time I was in the consult Dr. Schutt acted like I should be grateful that she made the time to see me instead of discussing what I had gone through and led me to her office.

She [Dr. Schutt] is a good listener and has good bedside manner. She will answer every question and tell you the truth. I feel like she’s very knowledgeable and will listen if you have and idea or a suggestion. On the down side, it’s hard to sometimes get her to do the procedures or even make an appointment...she did say a multiple pregnancy was high risk, and that she couldn’t put mother and babies at risk “on purpose”. That her goal was 1 healthy baby.
The clinic [Baylor - Texas Childrens] is very good. The staff is nice and tries to do their best always. Their equipment is very modern and the consultation rooms are cozy...She is flexible, knowledgeable and approachable. She will repeat the information a thousand times if necessary. The team as a whole is very good....Each iui was $600 out of pocket

She has a warm bedside manner, but will tell you the truth. She is a good listener and answers all the quiestions.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
She used 100mg of clomid for the IUIs and the timed intercourse. Then she used 450 of gonal f, 2 vials of menopur, cetrotide and the trigger. She also used HGH to prime. Her rationale (even when I asked her about mini ivf) was that with DOR women, this was the protocol research confirmed worked best. She also mentioned that if it didn’t work out, she would be happy to try something different.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
Each iui was $600 out of pocket, and the clomid as well. Then my husband changed jobs and had a better insurance that covered 10k in fertility meds and 10k in procedures. I still had to pay over 5k out of pocket for medications and I’m still waiting for the procedure bills. The insurance won’t cover a 2nd ivf cycle, and out of pocket costs are around 13k
Describe Amy Schutt's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I only have 1 embryo, but she did say a multiple pregnancy was high risk, and that she couldn’t put mother and babies at risk “on purpose”. That her goal was 1 healthy baby.

She [Dr. Schutt] was very thorough and very compassionate towards me! She is an IVF Mom herself and understands the struggle that we go through. Throughout the treatment, she teaches residents or fellows, sometimes both. It made me feel good to have more than one person monitoring my care. The only draw back to her is the long wait for our initial consultation. After that, appointments were easy to schedule.
The clinic staff seem very compassionate and competent. The only drawback is the long wait for an appointment. They are very accommodating once you make an initial appointment.... Just know that TCH/BCM is an academic institution. You will have residents/fellows observing your treatment.... I was impressed with every nurse that I met. I had a death in my family during treatment and I was afraid that it would impact my treatment.

She really took the time to explain my course of treatment to me. She really seems to care about the outcome of my case.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
Initially, I had cysts on both ovaries due to previous treatment. I was put on birth control to make the cysts go away for one cycle. During this time, I never felt that she "forgot" about me. Now that the cysts are gone, we are proceeding with an IUI with Letrozole and Ovidrel.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I was impressed with every nurse that I met. I had a death in my family during treatment and I was afraid that it would impact my treatment. The Nurse called me immediately and we were able to adjust my meds and go forward with the IUI.

You will have residents/fellows observing your treatment.

She [Dr. Schutt] did some more testing on both my husband and I and found things that were unnoticed by previous doctors. She took the time to not only go over what each item meant, she gave us a solution but more than anything she gave us hope back. Every time we go into see her she reminds me that she had IVF done as well. She always makes sure that I leave with all my questions answered and leave my worries with her. I truly believe I can give her my worries of this journey and she gives me hope.
They [Baylor/ Texas Childrens] are welcoming and very understanding of your situation. From the moment you walk in the office till you walk out to the hospital I feel surrounded by love and hope. They are never in a rush to talk about money, they understand that we are not made of money and they look for ways to help...I cant say enough great things about the staff. They always tried to make me laugh (with out being weird) they were helpful and they always knew my name.
How was your experience with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
As stated before, My husband and I had seen fertility doctors before who told us we were not meant to be parents. Each and every time that doctors words come to my mind Dr. Schutt goes out of her way to explain what great parents we will be. She always asks "what do you think about this" which gives me a moment to pause and say the fear or questions I have. She is never rushing us to the next person, I don't think I have seen her wear a watch or have a clock in her office. I often cry at appointments and when I say " I am sorry for crying" she always tells me that She cried a lot to and it is normal to cry. I know that doctors in fertility know the desperation everyone has when they visit. With the other doctors I always felt like a walking dollar sign but with Dr. Schutt, I feel like she is on my team. I feel as though while we are fighting this battle she has picked up the sword and is running full force in to the mess with us. No strings attached. Just wants to help us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
Skip everyone else. See her first
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Schutt at Baylor / Texas Childrens?
My husband and I have now seen four fertility doctors. Dr. Amy Schutt is by far the best doctor. When my husband and I started on this journey we were told by someone at another clinic that I was not fit to be a mother because of the my views on a topic. Nautically that was hard to process. Like every doctor, our first visit with Dr. Amy Schutt she asked us what our experience was on this journey. After sharing what happens she stopped the appointment to tell me what a great mother I would be and that she would help me get there. She did some more testing on both my husband and I and found things that were unnoticed by previous doctors. She took the time to not only go over what each item meant, she gave us a solution but more than anything she gave us hope back. Every time we go into see her she reminds me that she had IVF done as well. She always makes sure that I leave with all my questions answered and leave my worries with her. I truly believe I can give her my worries of this journey and she gives me hope.
Describe the protocols Amy Schutt used in your cycles at Baylor / Texas Childrens and their degree of success.
We started seeing her a few months ago, I did an ultra sound and some labs. I took some medication to start my period because I had not ovulated in over 3 months. Since then we have been playing the waiting game to see what is the best option. At first we planned on doing IUI this month however my husbands labs came back lower than we planned, so she took them time to explain IVF to us. A few of my friends have tried and lost children in IVF so I felt like I lost all of my hope. She sat with us for 30-45 minutes to calm me down and even changed my mind on IVF. I know we are in the begging stages of all of this, but I feel so much hope with her.

That really depends on insurance. Our visits are $80 each time. Blood work depends on what they are looking at but when I went it was $120. We looked at IUI and for everything it was $625 and now we are saving for IVF which for meds and everything around $25K (at most)
