She [Dr. Karmon] was easy going and walked us through our results from the first sperm analysis. Our analysis seemed extremely abnormal but referred my husband to a Endocrinologist and a Urologist. She gave us a game plan and now we are just waiting for our results to see if we have to do IVF with ICSI or if there is another option for us. She seemed hopefully that if my husband could get his blood sugar (he has Type 1 diabetes) down
They [IVF Hawaii] are able to serve to outer islands. Our first consult we didn’t have to fly out and they are willing to do phone consults as well. This was something that was not available to us at the first fertility specialists that was refer to us.... She [Dr. Karmon] was understanding and hopefully we will conceive. Still trying to figure out the root of husbands infertility but she had some thoughts and gave us a options.

How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at IVF Hawaii?
She was easy going and walked us through our results from the first sperm analysis. Our analysis seemed extremely abnormal but referred my husband to a Endocrinologist and a Urologist. She gave us a game plan and now we are just waiting for our results to see if we have to do IVF with ICSI or if there is another option for us. She seemed hopefully that if my husband could get his blood sugar (he has Type 1 diabetes) down there is a possibility we could conceive naturally. So we are awaiting to see his results from his second sperm analysis. Since it was the right time during my cycle at our consult we did a test to see if there was any fibroids in uterus. Everything came back normal. She gave us hope. And that means the world to us.

She’s awesome. And don’t be afraid to ask questions.

We are still in the process for our second consults. Husband needs to repeat his Sperm analysis. In the mean time he’s going to be working with an Endocrinologist to help bring his sugar levels down. She suggested I start taking prenatal vitamins and CoQ10 In the mean time. Once we get the results from His second sperm analysis will figure out what’s the next step for us.

How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii?
From day one Dr. Karmon has always made me feel like we can achieve our goals. She has helped me keep faith in this long, dreadful journey. When things didn’t work as planned, she would assure me there is still more possibilities and would adjust our plan of action. Her compassion is like no other and I always felt like she was right there with me. I actually referred my best friend to her. My best friend had 2 recurrent unexplained miscarriages and after her second one I suggested she contact Dr. Karmon for help. I trusted her so much that I sent my best friend to her for help. My best friend is now about to give birth to a baby girl in April.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii?
To trust In Dr. Karmon. She knows what she’s doing and with her help she will lead you in the right direction.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii?
For the first couple cycles it took a veryyy long time for my follicles to be ready for ovulation stimulation. Dr. Karmon knew how frustrating it was for me and she expressed multiple time how frustrating it is for her as well because she knows how frustrating it is for me. It made me feel like she really wanted results for me just as much as I do.
Describe the protocols Anatte Karmon used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
For the first cycle, because of insurance, we had to do timed intercourse. Because I have PCOS I don’t typically have regular cycles. They started me on Provera for 10 days. I had to do a HCG which showed my left tube was blocked and had polyps in my uterus. Dr. Karmon did a hysteroscopy to remove the polyps. The next cycle we started with Provera and then Femara. After no results with Femara, we moved on to Follistim. For the first 2 cycles with follistim at 100 units, it took just about 30 days for my follicles to respond. The remaining cycles, Dr. Karmon introduced a steroid with the Femara in the beginning of the cycle to hopefully help my follicles react sooner. With the steroid it took my follicles less than a week of follistim!!!! After my last failed IUI, we discussed IVF and are due to start the medication once I get my period.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff is so amazing. Because I have been there so many times over the cycle of my journey, all of the staff know me by name. It’s a nice feeling when you are made to feel like family when dealing with something so difficult

Costs after insurance: About $40 for scans and bloodwork, done 3-7 times per cycle $178 per IUI after military discount and insurance Total prepayment for IVF after insurance $5000. Not including any medication or other tests during IVF
Describe Anatte Karmon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii.
Dr. Karmon highly recommended eSET and said that she would allow up to two but really preferred to do one because my husband and I are both young and healthy.

How was your experience with Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii?
After 7 years trying to get a baby, three clinics, two countries, we were lucky enough to find Dr.Karmon. She was the only one in that long period of time, that saw the whole picture, was clear, realistic still with hope and candid manners. She's the only one that saw at 44 of age a chance to find new explanations on why things were not working like nobody before even thought, and boom! we have now a pretty little baby girl. Some is being persistent, financial wise or helped, courageous, strong and focussed, some luck helps too, but you need for sure a great doctor, and that's Dr.Karmon
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Anatte Karmon at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii?
She'll go over the whole thing, very detail oriented and would honestly and softly suggest options and give her wise advice. I'd say take it. It worked for us!

Describe the protocols Anatte Karmon used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii and their degree of success.
After many cycles, egg retrievals, fertilizations, pgd's etc etc we did with her only one more egg retrieval (we've had 3 frozen embryos tested at that time, but after way too many loses we wanted to be on the most possible safer side). It did not work and it was us suggesting no more retrievals and the next step accepted, offered before hand by Dr Karmon to study for possible polyps (one was there and was minimally invasively removed) and the great ERA study, to find out the need of extra or less hormones to be able con conceive in a fake cycle as far as I can explain it non-medically. Both things prepared the uterus and we were able to get pregnant. By month 3 you definitely need as well a good obgyn, specially if you are on the "considered" risk age for pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii. (Assigned nurse: Jae Lee (IVF coordinator))
Jae Lee is the greatest of all, but the whole team works peacefully, professionally and in complete harmony. Despite the stress, challenges and complications, there's Aloha Spirit all over.
Describe your experience with Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii.
We only had a problem with a lab that came back negative and ended up being positive. On the third preg.test. I guess that was meant to be, machines fail and it could always happen. It helped us to show endurance and it ended up being something minor and accidental. The clinic has all strengths you can imagine and I cannot think on weaknesses. Dr.Karmon had a baby when we were taken care of, so Dr.Fratarelli took care of us once or twice. Although we've seen him only a couple of times just being sited at the waiting area, he was fully aware of our situation and medical procedures...meaning coordination is great as well.

Describe Anatte Karmon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii.
The doctor suggested to have both (Last!) good embryos transferred so we could have higher chances...but we decided to have one other chance, considering we only had two. Now we have a healthy baby and a silver bullet on another pgd tested embryo for a last attempt to have another baby (hopefully soon)

Dr Karmon is amazing and she has faith in what she does and she will be there every step of the way with you...had a plan from the very beginning of my treatment and we stuck to it. No unexpected changes was added, and everything went smooth... is very pleasant, knowledgeable, kind and understanding. She took the time with me to help me understand my treatment and my plan that she had for us. She was able to answer all my questions and just be my person throughout every step of the way.

She [Dr. Karmon] is very professional and as you work with her more you’ll see that she is a very warm person...After a few failed rounds of clomid with my regular OB, we tried two IUIs, then at Dr. Karmon’s recommendation, we went straight for IVF. She felt we should do IVF not only from a cost standpoint but because I was a good candidate for it to be successful...At our request, Dr. Karmon let us put in two frozen embryos for the first transfer which resulted in a successful pregnancy and birth of our son. For the second round, I discussed the risks with her and we decided on one which has resulted in a positive pregnancy with a baby girl due in June.
Around $11,500 for everything [at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii] - PGS, IVF, drs visits, meds, etc...They are very busy! But the staff is great. They do have locations around the island so sometimes scheduling can be difficult if you only have certain times/days and your dr is at other clinic locations on certain days. They are pretty good about being on time for your appointments, parking is validated and basically everything can be done in office.

She [Dr. Anatte Karmon] was attentive and seemed to treat us as an individual case. Not just putting our situation in a box. Very factual. She still had a joking manner when necessary which made her seem “ more human”, she made my husband feel at ease which is super difficult.

From the phlebotomists to the nurses and doctors [at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii] great experience. The semen collection room could be more discreet the staff waiting for collection were sometimes impatient and could be heard through the door . The egg retrieval was not as easy as they say it would be...[nurses were] Super sweet, timely, patient optimistic, excellent communicator and educator...Before egg retrieval we did the out of pocket expense like testosterone and coenzyme q10. First cycle had fewer follicles then tried a different birth control approach less time in BC and started the testosterone had 3 more follicle which increased my egg count.

I rarely saw her [Dr. Anatte Karmon], she only did one ultrasound and my egg retrieval. It was my first time doing IVF so I had a lot of questions. I didn't always feel like she had the time to explain things to me. She was a nice person but did not have the warmest bedside manner.... She did not really explain things to me in as much detail as I would have liked. She did not do all of my monitoring, just the egg retrieval. Her bedside manner was not the warmest.
My IVF coordinator nurse Jae [at ARMG] was amazing. She was warm and compassionate. She answered all of my silly questions and made me feel like she really cared. I feel like she knew me better than my doctor and I spent far much time with her.... Since it was my first IVF she [Dr. Anatte Karmon] used a high dose of meds, as no one knew how my body would react.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Gynecology of Hawaii. (Assigned nurse: Jae )
My IVF coordinator nurse Jae was amazing. She was warm and compassionate. She answered all of my silly questions and made me feel like she really cared. I feel like she knew me better than my doctor and I spent far much time with her.

[Dr. Anatte Karmon is] very welcoming, honest and warm. At times puzzled with what to do next but confident in the choices she had for us, during the down times she was very incuragaing that it will happen hopefully and didn’t give up in helping me through a tough time. Very passionate about helping families grow...trying to find the right balance of hormone shots everyday taking a bunch of vitamins to help with healthy eggs, a million ultrasounds that I loved going to and when we got pregnant shots in the butt that hurt but so worth it.
[The nurse at IVF Hawaii are] Always warm and welcoming, by far one of the best nursing staff I ever encountered, they knew you by name and friendly and made you feel like part of the family...Sometimes they would be behind schedule but no matter where you go you’re gonna wait. I love that they follow up on your treatments and if things don’t go your way the 1st or 2nd time around they understand how you maybe feeling and they don’t make you feel alone. I can’t think of any weaknesses, they have good communication with each other.

[Dr. Karmon] gave me the best individualized care!...I love Dr. Karmon from the initial consult to my egg retreival. I saw her at every visit and she did my surgery. She's very passionate about what she does and goes over every option a patient has based on their characteristics...Be open about your concerns. Dr. Karmon is so good at answering any questions you have and makes you feel at ease about the process...
My coordinator [at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii] was the best! She too answered all my questions and made going over medication instructions so simple for me to do at home...The feeling you get once you walk through the doors is so welcoming. The receptionist knows you from day one and the phlebotomist is so great at her job you wouldn't mind getting your blood drawn. The medical staff knows what's going on and if the provider is running a bit behind they will inform you. The staff is also very aware of time (if you don't have enough of it and you need to go back to work) they communicate with the providers if you're in a hurry and need to leave.

I was doing an IUI while on vacation which was unusual for them but they treated me like they would any other patient -- with care.... I wasn't assigned a doctor as we were just doing an IUI. But as a whole it was a good experience with everyone we came into contact with. I'm not sure the name of the person who performed the IUI; she was kind and informative.
This clinic [Advanced Reproductive Med and Gynecology of HI] was willing to work with my clinic back home to make my IUI happen while on vacation. It was pretty simple as all of my monitoring was done at my home clinic. They were happy to help and took good care of me.... approx. $230 for an IUI with sperm washing (not including monitoring)... I was doing an IUI while on vacation which was unusual for them but they treated me like they would any other patient -- with care.
