Dr. Scoccia and his nurse are very attentive and know what they are doing.
Be prepared for the experience of waiting in a reception area with regular OB patients who are pregnant (which can be hard as a fertility patient.)

Dr Scoccia, was not as responsive as I needed him to be when requesting test results for a fertility treatment grant, however he was always direct with me in my appointments and willing to answer all my questions. ... I was recommended 3 rounds of clomid and timed intercourse, then IUI using clomid again. ... My appointments never felt rushed and I was able to get all my questions answered.
It was easy to get an appointment and I never had to wait long to be seen. ... However I often felt like I had to hunt them down for test results or any other information I was requesting. ... The nursing staff never followed up with me when test results were in, and were not very responsive. ... Most of my visits were largely covered by insurance. I believe the initial consult was between 200 to 300 dollars.
