Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I like her [Dr. Ania Kowalik] because she is clear and to the point with information without it being overwhelming...She is extremely considerate of my wife, a trans women...She presents all options and gives her opinion on which will be the best course of treatment but makes it clear that it is the patients choice how to move forward with treatment. I personally appreciate a straight forward approach in medical setting so I like this a lot about her, but could see it not being for everyone.
The initial process to get established as a [Fertility Solutions of New England] patient is a little long but once you are started as a full patient there is very little wait time. The doctors that work together are all well versed and good to work with. I saw a care team for a lot of my early ultrasounds and blood draws and then saw my specific doctor for more important and decision making appointments.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
She has so much information and doesn't want to waste a patients time so come prepared with questions and she will be able to answer them!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
She dedicated time to our specific situation and was always checking that we understood our choices and options.
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
So I started my IVF cycle on 10 days of birth control, had hormone levels checked and then started treatment to prepare for my egg retrieval. I did 10 days of 200 iui of Gonal-F followed by 2 days at 150 iui. 12 total days on Gonal-F. Days 7-11 I did prefilled syringes of Ganirelix. Day 12 I didn't trigger shot of 10,000 in 1ml of water. The egg retrieval day 14. Then day 5 embryo transfer.
How competent was Ania Kowalik at LGBTQ care?
She is extremely considerate of my wife, a trans women, who doesn't have any legal name change but has never once dead named her and made sure her name was on all visible parts of our file and her dead name was only used when legally necessary. The second she was knowledgeable about trans fertility and fertility preservation which is what we were seeking. After that she diagnosed my wife with infertility.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
The staff is kind and knowledgeable. They are respectful and smiling even for the early 7:30 am appointments!

While being treated by Dr. Kowalik, I felt like I was being rushed through the IVF process with little to no regard for my personal experience. At every step of the process, Dr. Kowalik only went over the most minimal, basic information without taking the time to fully explain details and so I was left searching for answers myself the entire time. It was not easy to communicate with Dr. Kowalik, as everything must be done via the online portal, and you can only send direct messages to doctors that are available on that specific day (like a doctor having office hours and you can only talk then).
The original plan [at Fertility Solutions of New England] was IVF with ICSI, embryo genetic screening and then frozen embryo transfer. Unfortunately, only a fraction of the eggs expected were retrieved and then only 2 were successfully fertilized. There was NO back-up plan or any sort of indication that this was even a possibility and so a last minute 3 day embryo transfer instead of 3 weeks was quite a shock. The whole entire process, I was given only the most basic, broad information about a subject I know nothing about and was only given specifics about the next steps when I explicitly asked. I was often left feeling in the dark after our conversations, and yet, whenever I couldn't get in contact with her and had to speak to another doctor or nurse at the facility, I was given so much more information and more accurate timelines.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Beginning at the very first meeting with Dr. Kowalik, it was clear that she was a blunt, smart, no-nonsense, to-the-point type of doctor. Although would have preferred someone with a warmer demeanor, I did not think that her attitude would be a factor in the quality of my treatment, which was a wrong assumption. Her lack of compassion and, quite frankly, her callousness in several of our interactions was a huge factor in me seeking out a different fertility clinic for my second cycle. Dr. Kowalik literally SCOFFED at me on more than one occasion when I asked her medical questions. As if I, a woman with no medical background and no prior knowledge of the IVF process, would have intimate knowledge of what was going on. I felt rushed when I spoke with her and she was often condescending when we spoke. During my cycle, there were unexpected complications at one point and she treated a heart-breaking and terrifying experience in a very apathetic and almost annoyed manner.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Be prepared to do your own research, fill in many blanks by yourself and through other doctors and do not expect a personal touch.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
The nursing staff was helpful, but they were just ghosts on the other side of a telephone line. I was never given the names of any other staff at the facility and I spoke to MANY different doctors and nurses, just whoever happened to be on call at the time, so I can't even review any individuals because I don't remember when I talked to certain people and about what subject.
Describe your experience with Fertility Solutions of New England.
I have never felt compelled to write a review for a doctor or a medical clinic before, but my time at Fertlility Solutions was so terrible that I felt the need to share my experience. For any woman, having trouble conceiving is an agonizing, scary and confusing time. Like many women in this situation, I had no idea what to expect while going through the IVF process and was hoping for personal support, helpful guidance, and compassionate care throughout the process, which is absolutely NOT what I found at Fertility Solutions. I felt rushed through the whole plan and was only given information on what to do next at the very last minute. I was even told "most women are too scared to know what the next step is, so we like to just do everything as it comes" after I complained for the 3rd time that I had NO IDEA what was going on. I find it hard to believe that other women are telling them they love to be left in the dark. I was told on 2 separate occasions that I needed a prescription at such a last minute, that if it was too late for the pharmacy to fill the Rx, I would just have to be off schedule with the medication. I had to look up so much information on my own that I now feel like I could teach a class on the IVF process. Communication was very poor. I had trouble speaking to someone on the phone every single time I called. The patient portal only lets you contact doctors or nurses on call, so you can't always send a message to your own personal doctor or even someone that you know there. Fertility Solutions took the already difficult process of IVF and made it even more emotionally, mentally and physically daunting.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England.
Costs were mostly covered by insurance. We paid $2,500 for genetic screening, which we ended up not using because of unexpected results. I was never contacted about getting a refund or told anything about my balance until I contacted Fertility Solutions about the issue.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Solutions of New England?
  • Failed to call with results

Dr. Kowalik was wonderful! She took the time to talk through everything with my husband and I. I never felt rushed, or like I couldn't ask questions...very clear in her explanations, and honest about positives and negatives along the way. At one point we had a minor setback...a small polyp was discovered during a repeat SHG, which required surgery before we could proceed with our IVF cycle. She performed this surgery as well and I was very pleased with my experience during that process as well.
As a personal preference, I wanted a clinic that was primarily women and this fit the bill! A lot of fertility doctors in my area are men, and Fertility Solutions is entirely woman owned and run. I think the only man I ever worked with was the anesthesiologist during my retrieval...Monitoring appointments were very organized. They opened early enough that I was able to fit them in before work
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I honestly don't have any weaknesses to list. Dr. Kowalik was great to work with....very clear in her explanations, and honest about positives and negatives along the way. At one point we had a minor setback...a small polyp was discovered during a repeat SHG, which required surgery before we could proceed with our IVF cycle. She performed this surgery as well and I was very pleased with my experience during that process as well.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I found her to be very professional. If you are looking for "warm and fuzzy" she may not be the best fit, but my husband and I felt very comfortable with her expertise. Also, one important thing to note about this practice as a whole...if you are looking for it (it was not a priority for us at all), they do not let you know the gender of your embryos. We were told very firmly that it is against the mission of their practice.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Dr. Kowalik was wonderful! She took the time to talk through everything with my husband and I. I never felt rushed, or like I couldn't ask questions. At Fertility Solutions, a doctor (not always Dr. Kowalik, I saw Dr. Anania frequently as well) is always the one to perform your ultrasounds, so during your appointment you have a very good idea of where you are in the process and what next steps will be.
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
I started my journey with an HSG at a different facility (the hospital my regular OB works out of) in August of 2018. I got pregnant naturally in the same cycle as this procedure, but suffered a miscarriage in October 2018. I met with Dr. Kowalik in April 2019. We first did two IUI cycles, using Clomid and Ovidrel trigger shot, and then progesterone suppositories. Both were unsuccessful. We decided to start the IVF process later in the summer of 2019. My insurance required a repeat HSG since it had been a year. During that process a small polyp was discovered, which required surgery to remove. After my surgery, I was finally able to start the stim / retrieval process in October 2019. After a cycle on birth control I was prescribed Gonal-F and Ganirelix. My retrieval yielded 8 follicles, from which we got 4 fertilized, 2 made it to day 5 and were sent to PGS testing. We had 1 normal embryo. I started a natural FET cycle in December 2019, and transferred my one embryo on December 23, which resulted in the little girl I am holding right now!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I mainly saw the nurses for my bloodwork and to help prep for procedures. They were all very kind and compassionate.
Describe your experience with Fertility Solutions of New England.
As a personal preference, I wanted a clinic that was primarily women and this fit the bill! A lot of fertility doctors in my area are men, and Fertility Solutions is entirely woman owned and run. I think the only man I ever worked with was the anesthesiologist during my retrieval. Ultrasounds were also always performed by a doctor so you had immediate feedback. They were also very quick to reply...if I left a message for a nurse I heard back before the end of the day. Instructions on next steps were always very clearly laid out, so I was never left questioning if I was doing the right thing during a potentially very confusing process.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Solutions of New England.
Monitoring appointments were very organized. They opened early enough that I was able to fit them in before work. You were given an appointment time to help stagger the number of people in the office at once, so I don't think I ever waited more than 10-15 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England.
My insurance covered most of it, so it was just co-pays/deductible. It was definitely under $1000 total for all procedures and medications.
Describe Ania Kowalik's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Solutions of New England.
Because of my age, we could have chosen to transfer 2 embryos had we not done PGS testing. However Dr. Kowalik did not recommend transferring 2 PGS tested embryos as the chance of success is so much higher.

I have unexplained fertility so I'm pretty sure I was a textbook case of moving along from timed intercourse, to IUI, to IVF. She [Dr. Kowalik] did suggest around 3-4 IUIs but I was not ready to move on emotionally, and she had no problem continuing them. My IVF protocol was a standard antagonist approach and it was adjusted as the monitoring was completed. Now that things still aren't working, I am hoping for a bit of a more individualized approach.
I don't mind that I see the other doctors for procedures [at Fertility Solutions of New England] since I like the other doctors as well...Sometimes I do feel like I'm in a bit of a factory but at the same time, they are also seeing a ton of cases to get experience from...I like the nursing staff, they are usually pretty communicative and reply to messages relatively quickly. They are nice and understanding...Work with larger labs that have experience in new research. Weakness- Sometimes feels like a bit of a factory. Get annoyed that I can't ever call and speak to someone right away. Have to leave a voicemail and get a call back.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I like Dr. Kowalik. I don't mind that I see the other doctors for procedures since I like the other doctors as well. I find that she's mostly on top of things and is understanding. I do feel that she has my best interest at heart. Sometimes I do feel like I'm in a bit of a factory but at the same time, they are also seeing a ton of cases to get experience from.

Results [of IVF with Dr. Ania Kowalik]: no viable eggs were retrieved. We are currently in the midst of a second attempt ivf cycle. Dr. Kowalik has added menopur to the mix. It supplements the gonal injections... After 4 cycles of clomid, it was determined that Ivf was the best coarse of action. This was our first time going through the process. Perhaps researching the process a bit more would have been helpful as we did not know what questions to ask. Because of our limited insurance coverage and low number of retrieved eggs (5), perhaps an icsi procedure would have given us a better chance of fertilization.
While the office visits [at Fertility Solutions of New England] were somewhat personal, the egg retrieval facility has a bit of a industrial factory feel. You are lead to a back room where patients are being wheeled about in a common area where privacy is not an option. Once the retrieval is complete, the patient is wheeled back into said common area...They [nurses] promptly returned all phone calls and answered all questions no matter how rediculous they might have been. Never made us feel as though we were a bother.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Upon our initial visit, we were provided with the potential issues that have lead to our infertility. After 4 cycles of clomid, it was determined that Ivf was the best coarse of action. This was our first time going through the process. Perhaps researching the process a bit more would have been helpful as we did not know what questions to ask. Because of our limited insurance coverage and low number of retrieved eggs (5), perhaps an icsi procedure would have given us a better chance of fertilization. This option was never discussed. We have 1 more chance at retrieval with insurance coverage. Hopefully this next retrieval will be successful. All in all, Dr. Kowalik is a medical professional that presumably does what she thinks is best. We trust her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Discuss your financial situation and how that limits the number of retrieval’s your insurance covers. Discuss the methods of fertilization to be employed with the doctor that maximize the potential for fertilization.

She [Dr. Kowalik] has a warm but no-nonsense bedside manner. She’s very focused and kept us on track, but compassionate as well. She’s laughed with us, cried with us and hugged us... We were always a low probability case, and she was realistic but very compassionate with us, promising (and following through on her promises) to do everything she could to help us achieve success one way or another...The first observation Dr. Kowalik made after reading my records was that I clearly had insufficient luteal support and she switched me to PIO shots.
Strengths [at Fertility Solutions of New England]: communication, compassion and true partnership with their patients. Also willing to “think outside the box” and try treatments that more conservative or high volume (factory style) clinics will not consider. I love that I could communicate directly with my doctor pretty much whenever I wanted to. Weaknesses: I honestly did not encounter any. I think maybe only once I didn’t get a phone call returned the same day. And I called a lot. The handle to the clinic’s front door was loose for a few months, but even that has been fixed. I have to really stretch to find anything to criticize. Coming here after having had a frustrating experience at a high-volume clinic made me really appreciate how well they do everything. They take pride in their work, as all clinics should, but they understand that each patient is a person who carries a lot of pain due to infertility, and they take success and failures as personally as their patients do. Their patients are not just statistics to them, they are family.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
We came to Dr. Kowalik after a less than ideal experience at another clinic. We were always a low probability case, and she was realistic but very compassionate with us, promising (and following through on her promises) to do everything she could to help us achieve success one way or another. In the month between the 2 rounds we did with her, I actually fell pregnant naturally. However, it was not to be. Dr. Kowalik did everything she could to help me sustain the pregnancy until it was clear that it would not continue, and cared for me through the miscarriage. We made adjustments for the final round and finally, an embryo took. My husband and I were already talking about moving onto donor eggs assuming the final round would fail, and she said that she’d help us through that if it came to donor eggs, but in the meantime, she was 100% focused on the round at hand and needed us to be the same. Her commitment to her patients is unparalleled.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Be honest with her. Let her know exactly what’s on your mind and she will do everything in her power to get you to your goal.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
She has a warm but no-nonsense bedside manner. She’s very focused and kept us on track, but compassionate as well. She’s laughed with us, cried with us and hugged us.
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
My previous clinic used an antagonist protocol with estrogen priming and crinone for luteal support. I bled before both betas there. The first observation Dr. Kowalik made after reading my records was that I clearly had insufficient luteal support and she switched me to PIO shots. Concerned that the priming was suppressing me too much (I’d had 4 mature eggs in each of my first 2 rounds), she switched me to a microflare protocol (10 Lupron morning and night, 450 Gonal F). In the first round we got 5 eggs, all mature, all fertilized. 1 had arrested and 1 was arresting on day 3- we transferred the other 3 and beta was negative. For the second round, protocol remained the same except we added Omnitrope (.333) for the 9 days of stims as well as EmbryoGen growth medium. We got 4 eggs, all mature, all fertilized. All were still growing on day 3, despite one being graded poor and 2 fair on day 1. All were transferred. We achieved pregnancy and I learned at my first ultrasound with my ob that 2 had actually implanted, though only one developed. I’m currently 21 weeks pregnant with that one.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
They are wonderful. Quick to return phone calls (usually within the hour) and always informed and prepared to discuss my case. During retrieval procedures, they were a constant reassuring presence- provided great care while making it feel like a visit with friends. There were almost 4 months between my retrievals and during the second, one of the nurses actually remembered a conversation we’d been having at the previous retrieval. That’s when you know they care about their patients as the people we are.
Describe your experience with Fertility Solutions of New England.
Strengths: communication, compassion and true partnership with their patients. Also willing to “think outside the box” and try treatments that more conservative or high volume (factory style) clinics will not consider. I love that I could communicate directly with my doctor pretty much whenever I wanted to. Weaknesses: I honestly did not encounter any. I think maybe only once I didn’t get a phone call returned the same day. And I called a lot. The handle to the clinic’s front door was loose for a few months, but even that has been fixed. I have to really stretch to find anything to criticize. Coming here after having had a frustrating experience at a high-volume clinic made me really appreciate how well they do everything. They take pride in their work, as all clinics should, but they understand that each patient is a person who carries a lot of pain due to infertility, and they take success and failures as personally as their patients do. Their patients are not just statistics to them, they are family.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I remember that pit of pocket, the cost would have been close to $9000, which was comparable to my previous clinic. I am lucky to have good insurance, so aside from the medication costs (about $275 for each round), the rounds themselves cost $40 each and my consultations with Dr. Kowalik were also $40.
Describe Ania Kowalik's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I’d had this discussion with my previous clinic. Due to my age and the limited number of embryos we always got, we were always going to transfer all that looked healthy, within SART guidelines.

Dr.Kowalik is down to earth. I brought in a huge folder of all my past test and bloodwork my first day meeting her and she sat there and went through each page. Most doctors I've had experiences with would have pushed it aside. She even calls with updsates versus having staff do it. She explaines things in "mechanic terms for my husband so he can understand each process we will embark on.
They [Fertility Solutions of NE] are organized respond quickly either on the phone or if you are like me(busy bee with anxiety) you can communicate right through a patient messaging system. As far as weaknesses maybe their site can be a little more informative. As a new patient I would say be ready for an experience of a lifetime and I wouldn't recommend any other practice

Lay it all on the table, she is very understanding and doesn't judge .
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I felt like a human because Dr.Kowalik was straight to the point. She did not sugar coat what the outcome may be or leave details out. She was very informative and actually reaches out during the process versus previous doctors whom I've only met during the consult.

Even though Dr. Kowalik was "my" doctor, I met all the other doctors too- Dr. Anania once for monitoring, and it was actually Dr. Huang who did my retrieval AND my FET, just for scheduling reasons. I am obviously thrilled with my results, and highly recommend Dr. Kowalik and all the other partners at Fertility Solutions...My workup was negative so it was felt my diagnosis was likely age-related poor egg quality, and she recommended IVF with PGS testing. I ended up with one normal embryo (out of 3 that were tested, from 8 eggs harvested) which we transferred, and I am currently 12w pregnant!...
My only complaint is that my clinic (providence) was a satellite office, and wasn't as full-featured as the main office in Dedham. I did have to travel to Dedham for procedures and on times (weekends etc) that the satellites weren't open. So it was very convenient to have easier access to a satellite office- but it would have been great to just have everything at Dedham. I'm not sure that I understood at my first appointment that not everything could be done in Providence. This isn't a bad thing- just something to be aware of...
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I am a success story! I am 40 and had 3 miscarriages in a year, after one previous successful (natural) pregnancy so I came for eval. My workup was negative so it was felt my diagnosis was likely age-related poor egg quality, and she recommended IVF with PGS testing. I ended up with one normal embryo (out of 3 that were tested, from 8 eggs harvested) which we transferred, and I am currently 12w pregnant! I am very very fortunate to have been successful with my first cycle, but it also means my ability to review is more limited than someone who has had multiple cycles. Even though Dr. Kowalik was "my" doctor, I met all the other doctors too- Dr. Anania once for monitoring, and it was actually Dr. Huang who did my retrieval AND my FET, just for scheduling reasons.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I felt like my treatment protocol was tailored to my specific case and was not just one-size-fits-all
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
Since I am older and at lower risk of OHSS I was on high dose follistim. I don't know the name of the protocol but for my retrieval cycle I started with OCPs then 450 follistim with ganirelix added towards the end, and an HCG trigger. We did ICSI and grew the embryos to day 5/6 before freezing for PGS. After PGS I did a medicated FET cycle (oral estrogen and IM progesterone) and transferred one (the only) normal embryo. I appreciated that I was not on as many meds as it seems a lot of people are (menopur, lupron, antibiotics, steroids...)
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I only met nurses briefly at my procedures- most of my contact with them was over the phone and through messages on the portal. Everyone was great- but I don't really know who I dealt with.

Dr. Kowalik was wonderful from the first time we sat down with her. She was very kind, empathetic and gave us hope. I had a lot of fear about pursuing fertility treatments, but she made sure we addressed them together before we got started. I appreciated that she took the time to make sure I knew what was happening before we moved forward...I can be a bit hysterical/irrational sometimes and I think Dr. Kowalik sometimes might have thought I was a bit looney, but she was never anything less than empathetic, supportive and kind to me...
I can tell that Fertility Solutions of New England has put a lot of thought into making fertility treatments as affordable and convenient as possible without sacrificing personal service or quality of care. I was so grateful to be able to visit my local clinic and see my own doctor for most of my visits. I would get blood drawn on my way into work and barely missed any time.

I can be a bit hysterical/irrational sometimes and I think Dr. Kowalik sometimes might have thought I was a bit looney, but she was never anything less than empathetic, supportive and kind to me. I think she is just a very rational, intelligent, straight-forward person, and thank goodness for it! She is a good mix of empathetic, hopeful and straightforward.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I was pretty upset after having suffered from infertility for a number of years and it was affecting my mental health. I was very afraid to pursue fertility treatments because I knew it could be a long, difficult journey, but I magically had some insurance coverage for it that year and was at my wits end trying it naturally. The first thing Dr. Kowalik did was sit down and go over each and every fear my husband and I had. I was always treated with empathy and respect, from every person I dealt with at the clinic.
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
We started with an IUI, with clomid (if I remember correctly). Because I had been trying naturally for 3.5 years and was at my wits end, and because of possible endometriosis we both decided to go ahead with IVF for the next cycle. I was ovulating regularly so I think they started me on a low dose of the fertility meds. I know I was given birth control pills to control/suppress ovulation until they were ready, then used a Gonal-F pen to stimulate egg production, then cetrotide to stall it for a bit (I think?). All the while they were measuring my blood hormones and checking with ultrasound every few days to see the eggs developing in the follicles. Once they were developed and I was almost ready to ovulate, I gave myself a trigger shot, so they knew that the next day they could retrieve the eggs. They got 7 eggs out, 5 were mature and 5 made it to day 5 when I had my embryo transfer where they transferred one which implanted! I had a positive pregnancy test result 10 days later and continued taking endometrium (a progesterone supplement) for a few more weeks.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I was so nervous about my egg retrieval and embryo transfer, but Dr. Huang and the nursing staff at the clinic in Dedham (where these procedures are performed) could not have been kinder or more supportive. They were very patient and made sure I understood exactly what would happen and how to take care of myself afterwards. I am such a hippie and was sad to be needing medical intervention to get pregnant, but they were so great that the process still seemed very personal and meaningful and special - plus it's really cool science and I'm endlessly grateful it exists.

I was so grateful to be able to visit my local clinic and see my own doctor for most of my visits. I would get blood drawn on my way into work and barely missed any time. The Dedham office where the major procedures are done, was beautiful and calming. There were times I did feel a bit confused about what was expected of me during my IVF cycle, but only because the drugs and treatments were new to me and I tend to get overwhelmed following directions sometimes. But help was always a phone call or message away. They try to make it as easy as possible for you, posting your instructions on the online portal and it wasn't hard to get the hang of things. Again, I was lucky because things worked quickly, but I really can't say enough about how wonderfully I was treated.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England.
I know I am incredibly, incredibly lucky and I feel awful that this isn't the case for more people suffering from infertility, but my care was covered almost 100% by my state employer. I am now getting some bills (months after the procedure as it gets worked out with my insurance) so I think in the end I will end up paying almost $1000.00 total which I know is nothing. I wouldn't have been able to afford treatment otherwise and I can't imagine how awful that feels.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Solutions of New England?
  • Lost appointments
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility Solutions of New England.
There was just one minor error where I didn't have a blood draw scheduled when I had been told to go in and get it done (it might have accidentally been scheduled at another location, or it could've been my error). But the amazing nurse at the Providence clinic, Katrina fixed it quickly and I only had a wait a few extra minutes while she confirmed.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She's a wonderful dr, intelligent, well-researched, very open-minded, compassionate and warm bedside manner. She [Dr Kowalik] communicates well and is open-minded to less conventional treatments, like immunological treatments. She was on top of the latest research and is thorough with diagnostics. She went above and beyond to help us reach the most success we've had so far.
The clinic [Fertility Solutions of New England] is on the smaller side compared to others in the area, but with very personalized treatment and monitoring is done by doctors, not just ultrasound techs or nurses. Fairly good lab and wonderful treatment from the entire staff.

She took time to really listen to patients and address concerns and explain at complicated matters at a level we could understand. She was very compassionate and very much cared about her patients.
Describe the protocols Ania Kowalik used in your cycles at Fertility Solutions of New England and their degree of success.
She based the protocols on what worked previously and tweaked as necessary from there, but also incorporated findings from latest research into consideration for how to proceed as well. She was open to treatment recommendations from the reproductive immunologist we were also working with and modified our protocol to accommodate them. Between the immunology protocol and a very competent IVF/FET protocol, we were able to get pregnant 3 out of 4 cycles (had almost all negatives at prior clinics) and reached 2nd trimester for the first time in our on-going pregnancy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Solutions of New England.
Nursing staff was wonderful, prompt to answer questions, send in prescription orders, help with insurance as necessary. They went above and beyond to accommodate extra testing we needed for our reproductive immunologist. They were very compassionate and incredibly supportive.

Dr. Kowalik is in charge of the entire clinic, so you can't expect to have any personalized attention...I felt that this doctor was too busy running her clinic to pay any attention to patients. Instead of giving me a new blood test to check my hormones, they used an old test and therefore I ended up doing treatments for a week longer than normal. The doctor also forgot to give me more medication, and then a major snowstorm hit and I had to arrange with a nurse to leave medication out for me on the front stoop of the clinic. I had to drive two hours in a blizzard to pick up medication because no one checked in with me!
the nursing staff [at Fertility Solutions of New England] was quite nice and helpful but also stretched very thin. The nurses split their time between the clinic and another hospital...I would say that the doctors know their stuff, but they are way too overbooked to give any type of personalized care. I did receive good care during my procedure, but everything leading up to it was a nightmare. No one was willing to take the three minutes to show me how to do injections. I definitely felt like just a number there.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I would definitely not recommend this doctor. I only went to this clinic on the recommendation of a friend who had seen a different doctor here. Dr. Kowalik is in charge of the entire clinic, so you can't expect to have any personalized attention. I definitely felt like just a number and a source of income to them, as no one explained anything to me, even when I asked. I have a PhD and can figure things out on my own, but to not answer basic questions when hormones are involved is practically unethical.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
There was absolutely no explanation given to me. When it came time to do the injections, I asked if someone could show me how to do them. I was told to watch the videos online! When I went in for my ultrasounds, the doctor (a different one than Dr. Kowalik), introduced herself to me on the third time I had seen her that week. It was terrible care all the way around.

She [Dr. Ania Kowalik] was the first dr we met with that didn't give up on us or make us feel as if a family wasn't going to be in our cards. She worked tirelessly for us, and when we received negative results you could tell they effected her almost as much as they did us. But she never stopped trying and was able to give us the family we longed for...She is extremely compassionate, she listens but doesn't sugar coat. She's always the one to call and give your pregnancy test results good or bad, but the one thing she'll never do is give false hope or give up on you
Strengths [of Fertility Solutions of New England] would be physicians, all 3 are very nice and compassionate, the dedham office is very nice and clean, the Woburn office is ok, the staff there is a little all over the place and you can end up waiting quite some time for blood work if they are busy, but for the most part both locations are good (I have never been to the RI location)...Everyone aside from the person that deals w your medical insurance is wonderful. From the reception staff to the nurses during and after transfers, we have not had an issues

But she never stopped trying and was able to give us the family we longed for

Thankfully our insurance covered 100% of the retrieval and transfer we were only responsible for co-pays and a % of the medications I do know that they offer payment plans or financing as options When we chose the donor route, that's when unfortunately there are a lot of out of pocket expense. In that instance we had to pay 5,000 to the donor, 500 to the lawyer to sign the paperwork and 10,000 for the testing etc. The other expense is the storage fees, we still have frozen embryos and it's 100 a month to store them

Dr. Kowalik was understanding of my unique situation, while also making me see the needs on her end for us to achieve pregnancy. She also is good at communication and quick to respond to my questions...We're just starting our first cycle of IUI, but we're currently doing monitored ovulation with clomid..
I've only recently started treatment, but so far, I feel that everyone in the [Fertility Solutions of NE] clinic is good at their job and has been pleasant to deal with. Strengths are communication and availability...We have a military discount, but right now we're doing IUI for $320...Every time I've called the nursing line, I've gotten called back quickly and with very helpful communication.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
So far, I have felt very taken care of by Dr. Kowalik. We are still early in treatment, but so far, she's given me no reason to question her knowledge or abilities. We've had a few telehealth appointments that were great. We've only had one in person, which seemed a little rushed, but she was able to answer my questions when I probed her for a more information.

Ania Kowalik was open to hearing what treatment we were wanting to pursue and took my health into account. We are carriers of a fatal genetic disease and decided to pursue Embryo Adoption. Dr Kowalik decided to put is on a natural cycle because of no history. The following blood tests and ultrasounds were very easy and accurate. We transfered 2 5 day donor embryos and had a successful transfer.
Our primary nurse [at Fertility Solutions of NE] is so helpful, compassionate, honest, knowledgeable and professional. I couldn't do any of this process with out her. She is very timely with getting necessary information to me.... It was very easy to get in for my initial consult, phone calls are returned in a timely manor, and everyone on staff is very attentive and supportive.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
She is warm and friendly, a calm personality. She showed compassion for me and why I was there. She didn't try to waste my time or try to suggest treatments that wouldn't be what we needed. She was open with me and explaining what we needed to do and what to expect. She is available to talk to and happily takes the time to do so.

At every visit she [Dr. Ania Kowalik] seemed very knowledgeable and up to date with current research. However, overall way too cautious and not aggressive enough treatment wise. I chose to forego IUI and jump right to IVF. I think (and now know) I was very poorly stimulated. I think if you have any other issues other than unexplained than this clinic is not for you. Too scared to treat appropriately
The nurses [at Fertility Solutions of New England] were very quick to respond with any Qs. However I hardly ever met any in real life. The issue with this clinic is there is zero teaching! Most of the people I have heard about are required to get education on med injections or go over their protocols etc. none done here... Biggest strength would be the doctors do all of the ultrasounds so there are no techs doing it you can kind of get answers immediately.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I was recommended a different doctor in this clinic by my OBGYN. Since there was a longer wait and I wanted to be seen sooner I chose to see Dr. Kowalik.

Dr. Kowalik is an exceptional doctor, with a true understanding of just how emotional and scary the process of infertility can be. She never gave up on my dream to become a mother, even when I was having doubts, she knew we should push on. Her sensitivity to my needs as a patient were incomparable to any other doctors I've seen.... In an effort to see if my uterus lining progressed with my cycle as it should, Dr. Kowalik did 3 mock cycles with me, which she would build up my lining then take a sample to see if it was measuring as it should be at a specific point in time.

I think as I saw her [Ania Kowalik] more often she became warmer and had better beside manner, she was more invested in me. I think she is extremely well informed and I feel like I am in good hands as her patient... She was always on the more cautious side, she doesn't believe in putting two embryos in unless there is a medical reason for it. she monitors everything very closely
All the procedures [at Fertility Solutions of New England] take place in Dedham, it is hard living in the northshore. i didn't realize before selecting a clinic that I would have to travel so far far away...The whole team there as been extremely helpful with answering questions and walking me through every step of the way. They are extremely invested in me as a patient and trying to get the results I desire. When the tests have been negative or when I had my miscarriage I felt like she showed empathy and cared about me as a patient.

It was a long and hard experience but Dr. Kowalik remained attentive and supportive throughout.
Dr. Kowalik was so caring and supportive. She was always available and always had time to answer every question.
How was your experience with Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
I got pregnant in my first round with my older daughter and loved my care with Dr. Kowalik so I followed her to fertility solutions for my second child. This time I got pregnant immediately but miscarried twins. Dr. Kowalik was so caring and supportive. She was always available and always had time to answer every question from whether I should change my diet to the intricate details of how Ivf works. She is bright and quick and straightforward so I always felt I was in good hands, but she also cares a lot. Having my second child took a number of rounds and it was a long and hard experience but Dr. Kowalik remained attentive and supportive throughout. I am so grateful to her for my two daughters.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ania Kowalik at Fertility Solutions of New England?
Don't hold back. She will never make you feel silly for asking even the most inane questions. If you are wondering about something, just ask.

Dr. Low alike is talented and also open, caring, and willing to answer endless technical questions from my husband. I felt like she was totally invested in my success. She is caring and smart.

She [Dr Kowalik] was great and very responsive but I felt like fertility treatment was more trial and error than science. I liked her as a person and could imagine being friends but I feel like the industry lacks appropriate approaches for someone with fragile eggs...Know your options and ask for what you need or want.

Dr Kowalik is great with explanations and when you contact her she’s quick to get back to you...is blunt and to the point. We appreciated this. She doesn’t waste any time and responds fully to questions and concerns. We paid completely out of pocket and she had been very understanding of our needs to order/purchase labs elsewhere or working with our OB to get them through our insurance...You won’t be seeing Dr Kowalik specifically for all of your appointments. They let you know this however in advance, it’s not something they try to hide.
Everyone at the clinic is great and so friendly. It’s a little tricky getting a hold of the financial department some times, but beyond that we’ve had a great experience. I would definitely recommend using Fertility Solutions... this is the only clinic we have used but comparing online we felt this clinic was reasonable [when it comes to cost]...You won’t be seeing Dr Kowalik specifically for all of your appointments.
