Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Carlos Sueldo is incredibly thorough and professional during appointments. He explains things in medical terminology and then explains what it all means in layman’s terms, which I really appreciate because I like to look things up and research, but I find it so intimidating when doctor’s only explain using medical terms and expect a patient to already know what it all means. During physical exams, he is professional and gentle and again, explains everything as he goes...
The whole nursing staff [at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center] is very competent and their communication between themselves regarding patients is succinct and professional. I never have to explain my care plan when I call and speak to anyone other than my primary nurse...This clinic’s strength’s are that they are friendly, knowledgeable, and always treat me as a patient, respectfully...For our first round, which included egg retrieval and a fresh transfer of 2 day 3 embryos, the cost was $12k. A subsequent round, which was a frozen transfer, was $4K. These costs did not include medications....
How was your experience with Carlos Sueldo at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center?
As a patient with Dr. Carlos Sueldo, he is great at making me feel heard, always asking if I have any questions and making sure I understand what’s happening. He is thorough and takes his time with me, never making me feel like he needs to rush to another appointment, like many doctor’s do, from my experience.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carlos Sueldo at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions!

  • Lost appointments
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center.
The only thing that ever went wrong at this clinic, is that a virtual appointment for a follow up was not scheduled correctly so I needed to call to check on it, versus having them call with appointment details. It was a small inconvenience that was fixed.

How was your experience with Carlos Sueldo at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center?
Dr Sueldo and all of the team at the clinic were always so nice and compassionate. We never left feeling unheard or unseen. We were always explained every procedure in detail as well. He was very understanding and accommodating when I wanted to transfer two embryos despite his recommendation and the risks. I always felt like I was in good hands. I will never forget my transfer. He had me look at the ultrasound screen and said “You see those tiny glowing dots? Those are your babies.” Just a very kind and warm human. Bedside manner plays such a big part during such a rough time. We’re already so emotional and anxious and I always felt at ease during my appointments.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carlos Sueldo at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and to be open and transparent. This staff will guide you, hear you, and truly have your best interest.

Describe the protocols Carlos Sueldo used in your cycles at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I remember them cutting back on my meds before the retrieval due to my ultrasound showing an excess amount of follicles. Their fear was I would suffer from OHSS and I had no idea what that even was so I appreciated them really staying on top of everything. I know that should come without saying but I’ve heard horror stories. The office also suggested a pharmacy for my meds that worked with me and cut a lot of the cost down. On the day of my transfer for IVF, Dr Sueldo really wanted to transfer one embryo. I wanted two. We talked and he let me know his rationales for one embryo and the risks with two. Me being stubborn and desperate, I continued to ask for two and he respected my decision. They really stayed in tune with my body and how I was responding to every med which to me was reassuring because I felt like I was in the right place. A place that was going to follow all the steps to try and ensure a successful treatment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Women's Specialty & Fertility Center.
The nurses were always so kind. There were two that I won’t forget. One was Ashley. I saw her a few times and I knew if she was there, I was going to be well taken care of. She was just calming and kind. She was a part of my first IUI and my retrieval. She cared and was so empathetic. The other was Evelyn, who I believe is an MA. She was wonderful too. Always so nice and cheerful. You go there so often you start to build a rapport with certain people and I felt like I did with these two.

Our first IVF round didn't yield any usable embryos, and our drugs and amounts used were changed to give us better results. I have been through so many fertility treatments that I don't remember all of the specifics. Our second cycle gave us six day-5 embryos and we have had 2 positive pregnancy tests from those embryos after they were frozen. One of those was a twin pregnancy.

And we went into our first consultation appointment, he explained to me and my husband that i had pcos and that the course of treatment would be medforman with Famara 5 mg, the trigger shot and baby aspirin.

I thought [Dr. Carlos Sueldo] he was a great doctor but was very blunt and up front about things which is good but also feel like they should show a little more compassion...Cycle 1: Femara 5mg for 7 days then added Clomid 50 mg days 8-11. Produce 3 follicles and did a trigger shot on day 12 with intercourse that day and the next. Treatment was unsuccessful Cycle 2: Femara 5 mg for cycle days 3-9...ultrasound on day 12 showed a 20 mm follicle...
[Women's Specialty & Fertility Center] Weakness I would say is that they aren’t open on the weekends which is hard for IUI patients. Strength is the nurses there do call back same day and are very prompt at getting your questions answered by a doctor...IUI was $500 Follicle ultrasound appointment $95 Trigger shot $140 Femara $20 Sperm count analysis $145

Dr. Sueldo is the perfect doctor for me. He takes the time I need to explain all the options for my treatment. He did all my ultrasounds, the egg retrieval, and two tranfers and was able to share next steps when things didn’t go a planned. He’s a calm and thoughtful man who wants each of his clients to have success. When I was struggling with bleeding while I was pregnant, he rearranged his schedule to make sure I was seen in the office by him. When it turned out I was having a miscarriage he was the one to do a D&C on me. My husband feels comfortable with Dr. Sueldo and trusts his judgment. With all my heartache through this process Dr. Sueldo has helped me see the light that a baby is possible.
