How was your experience with Annette Lee at Abington Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Lee seems to be a very friendly provider who is extremely knowledgeable in regards to fertility. Although she has won many awards and has a great track record, there is only one of her. So far, through 3 fertility cycles I have only seen her once in person (and only received one phone call from her) even though I am in the office at least once a week. The rest of the visits were her colleagues. She has a pretty great reputation and my husband and I are excited for the future and can’t wait to start the next chapter of our lives when we conceive a bundle of joy!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Annette Lee at Abington Reproductive Medicine?
Don’t have high expectations of seeing her particularly in person. Her colleagues may take over but they are all pretty good and I believe they consult each other in regards to individualized treatment plans.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Annette Lee at Abington Reproductive Medicine?
Did not see Dr. Lee much, only at one visit (procedure to see if Fallopian tubes are blocked-which thankfully they weren’t). Other than that, I have seen every nurse, NP, and PA of the practice (who are still good but wish I could see the same provider every visit so I could develop a relationship and consistency.)
Describe the protocols Annette Lee used in your cycles at Abington Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
After baseline testing (HSG, bloodwork, genetic testing, etc.) Clomid start 100mg. Letrozole 10mg. Depending on bloodwork/infertility diagnosis they will decide which oral Med to start with. After a couple failed oral med cycles they will highly recommend iui cycles, depending on the diagnosis. Injections are a possibility for the future.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
All the nurses are great! They will become your best friend. After all the invasive poking, pricking, prying, you eventually become immune to it. They are the ones who keep you motivated for the end result!!
Describe your experience with Abington Reproductive Medicine.
Strengths: Organized and staff is friendly. Office runs smoothly and you will always receive a phone call back if you call and leave a message on the nurses line.
Weaknesses: Lansdale office is not open on weekends. Have to go to main abington.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Annette Lee at Abington Reproductive Medicine.
Depends on your own insurance and what they cover. Personally my office visits were $50 each. Baseline testing was covered through insurance.
