Dr. Gargiulo was very personable, kind, and empathetic of my situation. We spoke about my history and I was able to express my concerns surrounding infertility.Dr. Gargiulo is very knowledged and I believe he cares abut the patients outcome as well as their health...He recommended getting a laparoscopy and removing the non communicating horn to prevent future ectopic pregnancies. He made me feel confident in trusting him for next steps. We scheduled a "Laparoscopic Excision of Right Rudimentary Uterine Horn, And Fallopian Tube".

How was your experience with Antonio Gargiulo at Brigham & Women's Hospital?
I am a 27 year old female who lives in the DC area who was born with a unicornate uterus with a rudimentary horn. I was diagnosed when I was 22 while I was trying to get to the root of my painful cramps. I had an ectopic pregnancy when I was 23 and wanted to be proactive for future planning. My OB/GYN recommended I have a laparoscopy done to diagnose endometriosis and take a loser took at my abnormal uterus. We did extensive research in efforts to finds a specialist in the area but no luck and since my family lives in Massachusetts we began our search there. We came across a colleague of Dr. Gargiulo and after speaking to his colleague, sending my MRI, and medical records, he stated Dr. Gargiulo would be the best fit to assist. When I met Dr. Gargiulo he was very personable, kind, and empathetic of my situation. We spoke about my history and I was able to express my concerns surrounding infertility. He recommended getting a laparoscopy and removing the non communicating horn to prevent future ectopic pregnancies. He made me feel confident in trusting him for next steps. We scheduled a "Laparoscopic Excision of Right Rudimentary Uterine Horn, And Fallopian Tube". His staff along with him were so kind, wonderful, and accommodating from beginning to end. It was a successful procedure and I am pleased with the small and not very noticeable incisions.

Dr. Gargiulo is a truly excellent doctor and I can't recommend him enough. I initially came to him years ago seeking to freeze my eggs due to a severe case of endometriosis. He helpfully guided me through the process, and I was happy to complete several successful cycles of egg freezing under his care. Years later, after meeting my husband and deciding to start a family, I returned to Dr. Gargiulo, who talked through our plans for addressing infertility from every angle.

He helpfully guided me through the process, and I was happy to complete several successful cycles of egg freezing under his care. Years later, after meeting my husband and deciding to start a family, I returned to Dr. Gargiulo, who talked through our plans for addressing infertility from every angle. When we decided to do a fresh cycle of IVF and ran into a terrible dispute with my insurance, he and his assistant went above and beyond what I would expect of anyone in that situation. They were always ready to help at the shortest notice during the weeks of the dispute. We won the case, and my husband and I went on to have a successful cycle of IVF at our first attempt despite a very low number of eggs retrieved. We were thrilled! I never once doubted Dr. Gargiulo's expertise, judgment, or advice. He explains everything in great detail and treats you with respect rather than talking down to you. He answers all questions with care and attention. What stands out as well are his kindness, humor, and genuine human touch. He is a generous doctor who clearly loves helping his patients. I will continue to seek treatment for infertility and endometriosis from him and cannot think of a better place in the area in which to do this than the BWH Infertility/Reproductive Medicine Center.
Describe your experience with Brigham & Women's Hospital.
I have complete faith in the medical expertise/care offered by the BWH Infertility/Reproductive Medicine Center. That's all I have to say although this site forced me to write a response of 200 characters in length.

Dr Gargiulo is an extremely experienced and competent fertility doctor, but with a warm and caring genuiness. It took us almost 3 years to have our twins, and Dr Gargiulo kept adjusting our plans as new results occurred. He is wonderful... Make sure to discuss genetic testing of embryos. Because it is not paid for by insurance, Dr Gargiulo does not recommend it universally. We had to ask to test ours, which he was more than willing to support, but if we did not ask, if could have take us much longer to have children.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Brigham & Women's Hospital. (Assigned nurse: Marsha)
Marsha and Carrie were the two nurses who cared for me through the four cycles. They are amazing, smart, compassionate, and on top of everything.
Describe your experience with Brigham & Women's Hospital.
The clinic was great: staff was friendly and competent; facility was clean; and hours for appointments was amenable to my schedule. There really were no weaknesses of this clinic. I always felt welcome and well cared for.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Antonio Gargiulo at Brigham & Women's Hospital.
Most of mine was covered by insurance with the exception of genetic testing of embryos, of which I paid about $8000 out of pocket.
Describe Antonio Gargiulo's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Brigham & Women's Hospital.
His philosophy of transferring only one genetically normal embryo at a time is the right one. I willingly transferred two, which he supported, but only after 2 prior failed FETs.

I truly can’t say enough about Dr. Gargiulo. He and his team were amazing from start to finish. We’re so grateful that he was able to perform my surgery, and that we’re one step closer to becoming parents!...He has a very full schedule, but is worth the wait!...I had uterine fibroids that if not removed would’ve prevented pregnancy. He performed a laparoscopic myomectomy, without any issues. I have recovered well, and will hopefully be transferring two embryos this summer!
