Describe the protocols Brianna Schumacher used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.

Our nurse has been excellent at coordinating between me, doctor, pharmacies and even the financial coordinator.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility.
Their strengths include a well organized team, friendly atmosphere, treatment backed by current evidence, and several options for treatment available. I can't think of any weaknesses at this team. Financial dept does sometimes need a little extra follow up but nothing excessive.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brianna Schumacher at Shady Grove Fertility.
We're doing a frozen embryo transfer via donor embryo program. The fees in total should be under $8k. Extremely reasonable.
Describe Brianna Schumacher's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility.
SGF says their standard is almost always a single transfer to reduce the risk of multiples. As a former preemie parent, I recognize the importance of reducing the risk of multiples given the increased risk of prematurity. However, they still evaluate each case to be sure eSET is best given the circumstances. In our case, both embryos we have are healthy and theres no reason to justify trying multiple transfer and risking multiples.
