Dr. Silva treated us like normal human beings. He explained things thoroughly when it was obvious we didn’t know. He gave us several different options for treatment and ultimately left the decision up to us. He also explained programs offered to help financially with any of the treatments!... I will be completing another cycle for IUI and Dr. Silva will be changing medications used- different from Clomid and Ovidrel.

How was your experience with Celso Silva at Shady Grove Fertility?
Dr. Silva treated us like normal human beings. He explained things thoroughly when it was obvious we didn’t know. He gave us several different options for treatment and ultimately left the decision up to us. He also explained programs offered to help financially with any of the treatments!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Celso Silva at Shady Grove Fertility?
Give Dr. Silva a shot before you try any other fertility doctor in the Tampa Bay Area. There’s a good chance it’ll be worth it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Celso Silva at Shady Grove Fertility?
So far my husband and I have only met with Dr. Silva for our initial consultation. He spent an hour with us going over health records and previous treatment plan. He immediately changed the action plan and provided explanations as to why. He stopped by to say goodbye to us and his office has been in touch with me since giving me details on the action plan and what to do next. We genuinely feel they are there to help.
Describe the protocols Celso Silva used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.
I have not started treatments with Dr. Silva just yet but next month I will be completing another cycle for IUI and Dr. Silva will be changing medications used- different from Clomid and Ovidrel.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Rebecca)
My primary nurse at Shady Grove has been amazing so far. She spent time going over everything after the consultation with the doctor and help set me up on the online portal. She communicates with me often and has assured me I can call her anytime with questions.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility.
The staff, including doctor and nurses, are kind and compassionate. They explain things and genuinely seem like they want to help you. IVF is also less expensive than my previous facility. IUIs however are more expensive, so I’d say that’s the only weekends I can give them at this point
Describe the costs associated with your care under Celso Silva at Shady Grove Fertility.
One IUI is $1,600. This includes ultrasounds and procedure but not medications. One round of IVF is $10,500. Medications and freezing of the eggs are additional cost. You can pay more to have this included... there are options! There are also different options for financial assistance if needed.

Dr. Silva was a great Doctor however, because of they way the practice handled things it wasn’t a personal experience for me and I felt that I had to fight to see my doctor... Dr. Silva had an awesome bedside manner. He had a great way of calming me down. When he knew I was getting upset. I felt like he listened to me and took my input seriously.

Bring questions and a notebook. He gives very thorough advice and information.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando?
Dr. Silva was a great Doctor however, because of they way the practice handled things it wasn’t a personal experience for me and I felt that I had to fight to see my doctor
Describe the protocols Celso Silva used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando and their degree of success.
He was very aggressive with my treatments which is what I wanted. He knew what medication would work for me and knew I didn’t want to waste time. I ended up responding better when he increased the dosage of my ovulation induction medication but unfortunately it ended in a loss of pregnancy very early on.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They nursing staff was ok. They didn’t always communicate and were very hard to reach when needed. They were always friendly but I received a lot of misleading information from them.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando.
They are unorganized and are more concerned about money than patient care. I don’t like the fact that every iui was done by a different physician so I felt like they didn’t know me or my history.the locations were pretty convenient but it was hard to get in to the preferred location when needed. Besides my doctor, the ultrasound tech was phenomenal. She got to know me pretty well over the years and was always comforting and kind. I never had any issues with check in or billing but I definitely think they need to focus more on their patient care!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando.
My insurance only covered office visits with a copay and monitoring. Over the course of my treatment I’ve paid roughly $13,000.00

He [Dr. Silva] was very kind and explained our situation well. He checked me to see if I had a block from my previous surgeries...went up my cervix with a camera to check to see if there was any scar tissue blocking me from getting pregnant from my c-section. Next step was 3 IUIs, then to IVF. He thought there might be a blockage where the sperm cannot reach the egg...went through extensive details of why me and my husband might not be conceiving

How was your experience with Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando?
He was very nice and went through extensive details of why me and my husband might not be conceiving- we had my former OB who I did my Clomid and Letrozole treatments with and husbands sperm analysis send over her paper work. He went through each page with us, reading carefully. He checked my tubes during a office visit and then went up my cervix with a camera to check to see if there was any scar tissue blocking me from getting pregnant from my c-section. Next step was 3 IUIs, then to IVF. He thought there might be a blockage where the sperm cannot reach the egg. We didn’t continue treatment because of the out of pocket costs and traveling out of town missing work.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando?
Nothing- he takes care of everything for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando?
He was very kind and explained our situation well. He checked me to see if I had a block from my previous surgeries- C-section and when part of my cervix was removed during a cone biopsy.
Describe the protocols Celso Silva used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando and their degree of success.
I included this in a previous answer. He decided I had a possible blockage and needed to send the sperm closer to the egg try 3 cycles of IUI, then IVF. The mounting costs of all these procedures weighted heavy on our shoulders ontop of the drive to the clinics (45 minutes away) and missing work. My insurance doesn’t cover anything with fertility treatments
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando.
You have to prepay to even begin as an established patient before even being seen by the doctors, which isn’t what I was used to. The staff is however very friendly and helpful when you call or have any kind of questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Celso Silva at Center for Reproductive Medicine Orlando.
Copays for diagnostic treatment. Then when I started rounds of IUI it was completely out of pocket and had to be paid before treatment was given. I would have to pay for medications, sonograms, sperm washing and handling and the actual treatment itself.

I'm not 100% but I think in total between 1500$ and 2500$ out of pocket. That's meds, labs, procedures, iui, donor sperm, storage.

Dr. Silva made me feel comfortable wen meeting with him. I didn't feel too rushed. He gave me tissues and time to cry when I became emotional. He did a pretty good job of explaining things. The only thing I didn't appreciate was always hearing about the IVF option. I knew it was an option but I wanted to try other methods first. He did not in any way pressure me to have IVF. However it was usually mentioned as an option in our meetings.
