Dr. Donesky has always been very upfront with us regarding our situation. I really appreciate the extra mile he goes to draw things out and explain them to us. He gives a visual explanation as well as a full medical explanation for the treatment route he is taking with us. He goes over all of our risks and benefits for using the treatment he prescribed. He always lets us make the final decision but goes over all of our options in depth with their success rates specifically designed around our situation.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
I would advise them to ask questions. The more you ask the better prepared you will be. Dr. Donesky was great at answering all my questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Dr. Donesky has always been very kind to us during this very difficult time. His staff has always went above and beyond to keep us fully aware of everything that is going on. Whenever I email them they are all quick to respond with an answer.
Describe the protocols Barry Donesky used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Chattanooga and their degree of success.
So far; I did the clomid challenge which was a five day span to see how my body would respond to clomid, I had the femvue procedure to see if I had any blockages in my tubes or cysts, my husband has had four semen analysis that resulted in the confirmation that he has a low sperm count. He was prescribed clomid which has slowly increased his numbers. We have been told that our best option is IVF with a frozen embryo transfer. We are still waiting for the authorization to come through to proceed.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Chattanooga. (Assigned nurse: Taryn)
Taryn is wonderful! Every time I reach out to her she provides me with a quick resolution. She is always cheerful and remembers us every time we enter the office. She does her best to be compassionate and show an interest in us every time we enter the office.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
I believe the clinic is strong in providing the best explanations for why tests are needed. They are very upfront regarding the cost of each procedure and help you get all the financial help you can each time. One weakness is that they provide a lot of their communication through their portal. This is great for ease of someone who is working and doesn't feel like they need to speak to someone. In my case I prefer to get an answer right when I have the question. I don't like emailing just a blanket email and waiting on a response from who ever happens to get to the email first.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
My doctor consults were between $80-$100 each visit, femvue $990, Blood tests were $120 each time I had them drawn three times, my husbands semen analysis was roughly between $8 and 180. The first one was $8 for the quest diagnostic test and $80 in the office, second one cost $80 in the office and the portion sent out to Quest was $120, and the third one was $80 in office and $180 from Quest.
Describe Barry Donesky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
Dr. Donesky strongly encourages eSET. I totally agree with his logic of the health and safety of both the baby and myself.

Dr. Donesky is wonderful. I went in knowing that based on my diagnosis he would likely recommend donor eggs. He did and I said that while I wasn’t against it, I needed to try with my own eggs first. He immediately agreed and jumped into beginning a cycle to retrieve my eggs.... I did a micro dose lupron flare protocol with an hcg trigger. Beginning in day 4 after starting the protocol, I had blood work and ultrasounds every other day, and then eventually daily.

He immediately agreed and jumped into beginning a cycle to retrieve my eggs. He is funny and relaxed, but also does a tremendous amount of research and keeps up with what is happening in the world of infertility. He’s been so wonderful for my husband and I.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
To not be afraid to ask questions. He will answer them. And know that he will do his best to set you at ease.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Dr. Donesky created a treatment plan for our exact issues, which differed from their standard protocols. He has always been up front with expectations and always answers every single question I have.
Describe the protocols Barry Donesky used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Chattanooga and their degree of success.
I have a diagnosis of diminished ovarian reserve. I did a micro dose lupron flare protocol with an hcg trigger. Beginning in day 4 after starting the protocol, I had blood work and ultrasounds every other day, and then eventually daily. I stimmed for 10 days, as I had a few slow responding follicles. I did not have a fresh transfer, and we did PGS testing. For frozen transfer, I wore estrogen patches, and took progesterone injections. After transfer I continued the patches and did oral and vaginal progesterone.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The entire staff is amazing. They know your name, know your story, and answer any and all questions. They are caring and compassionate. Several prayed with me, which meant the world to me. I should add that they asked if I would like to pray and were not at all pushy about it.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
This clinic is wonderful. The lobby, exam rooms, and pre/post op areas are all soothing and nice. The staff is wonderful. I feel like I’m great friends with the phlebotomist. They see patients on Saturdays and sundays and treat you with kindness and respect. When out FET didn’t work, everyone was so kind and sympathetic when we went for our follow up. They’re also extremely encouraging.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
I paid a total of $18,500 for IVF, PGS testing of up to 8 embryos, and FET, including drugs (purchased from an outside vendor). The total paid to the clinic was $13,600, which included the stim cycle monitoring, egg retrieval, 2 massages, and one frozen embryo transfer.

Our treatment plan [with Dr. Doneski] was to have the Femvue or HSG done after labs. After the Femvue, Dr. Donesky felt a round of Clomid with trigger shot and IUI would be the first step. He believes in doing 3 IUIs and then, moving to IVF if the IUI do not work...Dr. Donesky was very knowledgeable. At our very first appointment, he explained and drew a diagram of how PCOS effects fertility. He was very positive and upbeat. He listened to our concerns and answered our questions. He explained a treatment plan by our 2nd appointment.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Make sure that all your medical information is updated before seeing Dr. Donesky. Some of my medical records were not submitted before my first appointment with Dr. Donesky. Be current on pap exams. Dr. Donesky likes for one to be done every 2 years.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Dr. Donesky was very encouraging and positive. He made sure that we were doing what we wanted to do, not just what he suggested.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Chattanooga. (Assigned nurse: Taryn )
Taryn and all the other ladies are wonderful. I communicate with them via an app called eIVF. They respond within a couple of hours. When I needed prescriptions, they processed them for me through my pharmacy. During procedures, Taryn was positive and checked on me to make sure I was doing okay.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
This clinic was a breath of fresh air for me. I had been going to the OBGYN for some infertility treatment. I always felt overwhelmed there. The Fertility Center is calming. Everyone is super nice. They are there for you and want to be part of your team. They explained everything up front. I am a planner and like having a rough draft of a plan. I have not seen any weaknesses with this clinic so far.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
They try to cover everything under insurance if they can (HSG and labs). IUI (Clomid induced) Trigger shot, ultrasound, and 1 hour massage was $1100. I am not sure of IVF costs yet.

I can't say enough about Dr. Donesky!! My husband and I were ready to give up on our dream of having a family. Our old clinic didn't treat us well and we felt very hopeless. I did some research and convinced my husband to drive 2 hours to meet with Dr. Donesky. He was extremely personable when we met with him. He had looked over our paperwork prior to our appointment and asked us what we were thinking and then suggested a detailed plan that took into account our past experiences and my endometriosis. He offered suggestions and ideas that I had never heard about before and backed it up with facts and studies. I felt like he always listened to me and genuinely cared about how I was doing, what I was thinking. He sees me at every single appointment and is very easy to talk to. I can't recommend him enough!!

You will not be disappointed! Dr. Donesky is extremely intelligent and very personable. He will see you at every appointment and is very easy to get in touch with and talk to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
He is extremely kind and very intelligent. He always has a plan for us when we see him and goes into detail about what he recommends and why. I see Dr. Donesky at every single appointment. My first appointment after our consultation he did an HSG on me and diagnosed me with a Uterine Septum. I had been seen at my previous clinic for 3 years and they never found the septum. He talks to us and sees us at every appointment. It is a night and day difference between Dr. Donesky and our old clinic.
Describe the protocols Barry Donesky used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Chattanooga and their degree of success.
I have stage 4 endometriosis and had 2 failed fets prior to seeing Dr. Donesky so he thought the endo may have been affecting the lining, not allowing the embryos to attach so I took Femara and birth control for a month. It was a protocol I had never heard of, but everything he said made sense and after doing my own research I decided it was a good idea. During that cycle I had an HSG where he diagnosed me with a uterine septum, something my other clinic completely missed. He removed the septum the following day. I also had an endometrial scratch during this cycle. After this cycle we began our fet cycle. I went in to get labs on day 3 and was given instructions on how to use the estrogen patches. 2 weeks later we went back to the clinic and they determined my lining was good so we scheduled our transfer. I went down to 2 estrogen patches (changing them every 3 days) at that point and started twice daily progesterone in oil injections. We transferred 6 days later and continued the PIO 2 times a day
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Chattanooga. (Assigned nurse: Taryn)
Taryn was amazing!! She was very easy to get in contact with and was always supportive and compassionate.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
It is a very small clinic compared to what we came from. We really liked the smaller feel of it and appreciated that everyone knew us. We also noticed that we didn't have the long wait times that we had with our former clinic. We truly feel like we are part of their family and not just a number
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
All of my tests were covered under insurance. We only paid for our PIO and the transfer itself, which I think was around $5000
Describe Barry Donesky's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
I think our doctor may have recommended transferring more than one embryo at this point, but given our history we were not interested in transferring more than one and they were very supportive about that

He is not going to recommend a test just for the sake of testing but he will test alot to make sure he understands the problem and to decide on the best and most successful course of action...My husband was having male infertility issues when we first saw Dr. Donesky. Dr. Donesky took an initial sperm count and placed my husband on HCG. He retested and added Clomid to our regimen to make sure sperm and testosterone stayed high.

How was your experience with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Dr. Donesky is great and we are blessed to have found him. Sometimes I feel like he thinks you understand but he is a little over your head but every time I have felt like that, he has reworded our treatment plan into words and actions I can understand. He draws alot to get his point across or for you to gain a better understanding.

Dr Donesky is amazing. He is always willing to answer your questions even if you feel like they are silly. He doesn't treat you like an appointment slot but a family member and has spent more time with us that our appointment allowed for before. He also emails you in the patient portal if he wants to communicate about your test results or follow ups if you can't take off from work.

Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
The clinic is really compassionate. The financial services ladies are amazing and understand that its a large amount of money you are paying. The staff talk in hushed tones which is nice because you don't want everyone overhearing how much you are paying or the problems you are having. The lab is great as well and make you feel at ease.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga.
For patients with no insurance, semen analysis was around $200 with strict morphology.

How was your experience with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Well first of all, his name is spelled Donesky and on the autofill it is spelled incorrectly. I was referred to Dr Donesky by Dr Jay White, my obgyn. I started seeing him in April 2015 and it is July 2015 as I write this. My first appointment went well. Dr Donesky is the first medical professional that I have seen that has treated me with the respect I feel I deserve from day one. Most doctors, nurses, etc treat me like a little kid and talk to me like Im ignorant for at least the first two or three appointments just because I am only 23. Dr Donesky is kind without sugarcoating everything and he thoroughly explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. It is not unusual for him to whip out a piece of paper and draw graphs and pictures while he talks (and holy crap is he good at free-hand drawing graphs!) I cannot stress enough how amazing the communication lines are between the fertility center and patients. I can message Dr Donesky or his nurse any time through the patient portal and they respond diligently. I love that, as a third shifter, I can send them a message at 2am while it is on my mind and have a response waiting for me when I wake up later in the day. Lisa, the financial consultant is always awesome and she will do everything she can to help you finance your treatments. She has pointed me toward discount programs and lenders that I would probably never have found otherwise. I really love the Fertility Center and I would recommend Dr Donesky to anyone in the area looking for an RE.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
Utilize the patient portal. It has all kinds of information and resources for you to use if you actually look at it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Barry Donesky at Fertility Center of Chattanooga?
The care team at The Fertility Center has been awesome. Even Dr Bird's nurses recognize us and say hello whereas I have definitely felt like a number at other doctor's offices before. I actually feel like I know most of the people in the building on a personal level. I come in often for fasting labs and the technician in the lab always asks my husband and me where we are going to eat afterward because we once told her that we always eat right after we leave. Ive even had Dr Donesky's nurse Sandy ask about my cat when I had only mentioned him once. It's the small things.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Chattanooga. (Assigned nurse: Sandy)
The nursing staff in general is always really nice. Sandy is Dr Donesky's nurse and I can message her on the patient portal any time. She will sometimes respond to me as soon as she gets into work, before the clinic even opens. I see her every single visit and she is an absolute angel.
