Dr. Duffy is a brilliant fertility doctor. He stays up to date with the current research and applies it to his treatment. He was often rushed with appointments and late, but would take the time to stay and answer all my questions...He was mostly receptive to any additional testing I wanted, even if he didn’t completely recommend it...For egg stimulation, we used menopur, gonal F and cetrotide
[Florida Institute fore Reproductive Medicine] Strengths include the doctors who work there and their expertise. Weaknesses include the lack of communication at times between the doctors and nurses and the patients. Wait times for appointments could sometimes be really long, making it hard to estimate how much time would be needed to miss work.
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy is a brilliant fertility doctor. He stays up to date with the current research and applies it to his treatment. He was often rushed with appointments and late, but would take the time to stay and answer all my questions. He sometimes forgot the plan we discussed previously, so I would find myself having to remind him of things we previously discussed more than once. He was mostly receptive to any additional testing I wanted, even if he didn’t completely recommend it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Be prepared for your appointments to take a long time since he is often late. Be prepared for him to talk fast and seem rushed, but jump in and ask all your questions and he will take the time to answer them. Do your research and advocate for yourself and you’ll have a great working relationship.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy would sometimes forget details about my case or things we had discussed previously. I found myself sometimes having to remind him of “the plan” we had discussed. This may be attributed to the large number of patients he sees.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
For egg stimulation, we used menopur, gonal F and cetrotide. Due to my lower AMH levels, we only retrieved 9 eggs, 3 of which made it to day 5 blast and only 1 was pgs normal. Before transfer, I did a ERA cycle with the receptiva dx biopsy with a protocol of estrogen, endometrin suppositories, and progesterone in oil.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff sometimes seemed stressed and therefore could be short with patients. I sometimes felt like a burden whenever I called in with questions. Nursing didn’t always seem on top of communication. I never got a call with my pgs results after waiting more than 3 weeks. I also never got a return call about questions I had for the doctor the nurse was supposed to ask.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We were lucky enough to have fertility benefits through our insurance, but I was surprised by the amount of tests and procedures not covered by insurance. We ended up spending tens of thousands of dollars on medications and testing, equal the the same amount that people pay for IVF out of pocket.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I waited over 3 weeks for my pgs results on my embryos and no one ever called me. Finally I called the clinic for my results and it turned out they had them for a while but just never called. I also had questions for the doctor related to additional testing before our embryo transfer. The nurse said she would speak to my doctor and get back with me, but she never did. I had to wait until my next appointment to speak with the doctor directly.

Dr Duffy was very kind and took his time with us each time. I never felt rushed with him and he would answer any questions we had each time. 3 times I got low blood pressure during procedures and he was very caring and took care of me and didn’t rush or get upset that it took longer...He always took his time and talked and explained things. I did not feel rushed with him or like we were just a number.
We overall had a good experience with the FIRM...I wish Duffy was still with the clinic we would use him again. The only other issue we had was sometimes we had to wait a while at an appt they would be running behind but I understand it happens and in this practice sometimes things go unexpected...Few issues with nurses and billing. Nothing major with issues.

He takes his to time answer any questions you may have and is very thorough in explaining everything...believes I was misdiagnosed with PCOS by my previous doctor after going over my test results.

Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Duffy believes I was misdiagnosed with PCOS by my previous doctor after going over my test results. Being that my AMH levels are very high, he said I had time so he suggested to do 1 or 2 cycles of IUI’s before going down the IVF route. The day of the IUI, he examined my husband’s sperm and it came back very low. Which was a surprised because my husband has had 2 sperm analysts that not came back normal in the past. He suggested we move forward with the IUI because even though count was extremely low(200k), a small chance of pregnancy is better than no chance at all. We moved forward and Dr. Duffy scheduled another semen analysis for my husband the following week. Those results came in higher but are still a little low(10million). Dr. Duffy requested blood tests on my husband to see if their are any other issues and we are waiting on those. Meanwhile the IUI was unsuccessful but we are moving forward with a second round of IUI because we don’t want to waste a cycle. By the time, of my cycle day 12 ovulation ultrasound, my husband’s test results will come back and we’ll know if he has any hormonal issues that’s causing his low sperm count. If on the day of our IUI, the sperm count comes in extremely low again, Dr. Duffy will go over our options then.

Dr. Duffy has been so kind and explains every step along the way. During my procedure I felt no pain and he was very attentive...I drive 1 hr for weekly appointments with no insurance coverage for fertility but because the reputation of this practice is worth the commute.
I’m very happy with my experience at the Firm [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine]!...Sometimes you have to wait in the exam room for a little while but it’s worth the wait, when it’s your turn you are the sole focus...I highly recommend this practice
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I was told my friends how uncomfortable/painful the HSG would be but when Dr. Duffy did the procedure he was very attentive on how I was feeling and what I was experiencing, the catheter placement was completely painless & he talked to though every step, he showed me the images and made sure I had no pain the entire time. During our weekly ultrasounds he is very attentive and communicates everything he sees and all his concerns and any potential risks that may arise in my treatment plan. I feel very comfortable asking questions and I know I will get an answer I understand. His bedside manner is superb! I’m very happy with my experience at the Firm!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Don’t wait schedule your appointment but save, it’s expensive. I did not realize how often I would be in the office and I love it because I feel like every week I get to be updated and informed on the process but those weekly visits add up and it gets expensive quick. But the experience is worth it! I have only positive experiences so far! We waited 2 months to make our first appointment because we were nervous and didn’t know what to expect, I regret waiting! This has been great so far!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy has been so kind and explains every step along the way. During my procedure I felt no pain and he was very attentive. I am in the beginning part of my journey we started 4 months ago and it took 3 rounds of clomid to get me to respond, unfortunately we haven’t been pregnant yet but it takes time. I am on day 3 of my next cycle which will result in IUI. Dr. Duffy has been light hearted, he makes me very comfortable, and has a very positive outlook and he is confident I will be successful. It feels great knowing he is hoping for success just as much as my own family. I work in the hospital he operates out of, ironically I do ultrasounds for a living, I have coworkers who have been in the OR with him & shared how sweet he was to other patients as well. Knowing his reputation on a staff member level and a patient level is all the more comforting & he was highly recommended by my peers! I feel lucky to be a patient of the FIRM, I drive 1 hr for weekly appointments with no insurance coverage for fertility but because the reputation of this practice is worth the commute. Anyone in the Jacksonville area needing a fertility specialist I recommend Dr. Duffy at the firm! He spends time talking to you every week on what is going on with your cycle and what is the next step. He is happy to answer questions and never makes you feel like he has to rush to other patients or things to attend to, when he is in your room you are the only patient.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I had bloodwork which included hormone levels, metabolic panels, vitamin levels, standard genetic testing and specific genetic testing because I was born with a birth defect, . My husband had a semen analysis and genetic testing/labs. I had an HSG. My labs showed I am not a carrier for any major genetic abnormalities, my vitamin D level was very low & confirmed I do have PCOS. My HSG showed my tubs were open and not blocked. My husband’s labs came back normal and so did his semen analysis. My weekly ultrasounds showed my follicles we’re not matured until about the 3/4th round of clomid then I had two mature follicles and was given a trigger shot to ovulate. Unfortunately timed intercourse was unsuccessful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
There is limited nursing staff because the physicians are very hands on! The staff checks you in and out and checks vitals, they also chaperone any procedure, everyone in the office is professional, positive and kind!
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Sometimes you have to wait in the exam room for a little while but it’s worth the wait, when it’s your turn you are the sole focus! Everyone is so kind and informative l, I highly recommend this practice, we have been to 3 different locations and all other then have been great!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
It’s expensive but realistic, all their prices are available on their website. An ultrasound costs $125, that’s fairly cheap, the same ultrasound in a outpatient setting is around $1000+. The worst part is that many health insurances do not cover infertility, like my insurance. Unfortunately it’s all out of pocket expenses.
Describe Daniel Duffy's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I have many tiny follicles and Dr. Duffy is concerned about high order multiples, he would like me to consider IVF so he can control the amount of embryos. He shared that I can choose one embryo transfer or two. Anything else is unethical and not worth the risk of high order multiples.

How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
We came to Dr. Duffy after 3 attempts at another clinic. We had already been through 4 untested embryos, resulting in a chemical and a missed miscarriage. Dr. Duffy recommended PGS screening and the ERA for us immediately. We ended up miscarrying at 8 weeks with our one normal embryo from that cycle with no reason why. Dr. Duffy proceeded by performing a D&C surgery on me the first week of April. We mourned our loss but wanted to remain positive and move forward to try again. We went through two more IVF egg retrievals with the clinic over the summer, neither of them resulting in a normal embryo. One of the cycles was a mini-IVF and the other was a lupron-flare cycle, both were new protocols to us and looking back, not the best protocols for an endometriosis patient. At this time, we asked Dr. Duffy if we should try the ReceptivaDX biopsy to rule out endometriosis. Having no closure from our 3 previous losses, we were willing to try any test possible for an answer. Dr. Duffy did not think we needed to do the test and did not think that was the cause of my issues. He kept circling back to an egg quality issue. Therefore, he felt moving to donor eggs would be the next best protocol. This was a heavy pill to swallow. I am only 31 years old and have normal AMH, FSH, estrogen, progesterone, and every other level. The Recurrent Loss Panel also showed no discrepancies in my bloodwork. However, with the idea of a baby in mind, we proceeded with the donor egg route. We moved on to transfer the two blastocysts created with donor eggs. Once again, we remained positive and hopeful. Dr. Duffy completed the transfer and one week later I had a positive at home pregnancy test. We were very excited and did not take another test until beta day. However, my beta had dropped to show a chemical pregnancy. We did not understand why my body rejected these two embryos. Dr. Duffy even had me on the antihistamine protocol for this transfer with a series of blood thinner shots, antihistamine medication, estrogen and an increased dose of progesterone. We went back to the drawing board and had our re-consult with Dr. Duffy (again). Now, he wanted to perform the ReceptivaDX biopsy and thought I may actually have endometriosis. From the literature in the brochure and on the ReceptivaDX website, it sounded like I would fit the bill. I was unexplained and had a history of 4 miscarriages now within a 2 year span. This is not a normal diagnosis for a 31 year old healthy female. I was a bit frustrated, as I had requested to do the biopsy before diving into donor eggs and was told it was not necessary. We were glad to see Dr. Duffy had warmed to the idea though. We proceeded with the biopsy in November. Three days later my results came back and much to Dr. Duffy's surprise, I had a level of 3.6, indicating that endometriosis was most likely present in my body. Dr. Duffy was shocked and I believe some of his staff were also surprised. We immediately moved to discuss laproscopic surgery to remove the endometriosis. Dr. Duffy explained he would not know what stage it was until he went in for surgery. The lupron depot protocol was not necessary, as we had no embryos left to transfer. I also was very ready to get to the root of the problem and remove it. I was ready to fight whatever was standing in the way of us and our long-awaited baby. Dr. Duffy performed the surgery on December 12th and diagnosed me as stage 2 endometriosis. The photos were appalling. We cannot believe how long I went undiagnosed. We are happy to have removed it by a talented doctor such as Dr. Duffy but we are also frustrated that it took so long to get here and that we lost so much in the process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy frequently runs behind for appointments. Better time management overall is needed in his office. Be your own advocate, because sometimes the doctors are not aggressive enough in treatment protocols.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
We have been established patients with Dr. Duffy since November 2018. We think very fondly of Dr. Duffy, however, it took one year, and three IVF cycles (including one miscarriage and one chemical pregnancy) to diagnose me with Stage 2 Endometriosis.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
For the first round, we used birth control followed by gonal f and menopur with our stims cycle. Dr. Duffy had us add in human growth hormone to help with egg quality. After the miscarriage, we tried a lupron-flare round (which did not end up producing any normal embryos) followed by a mini-ivf (which produced 2 eggs and 0 embryos).

Dr. Duffy is very knowledgeable, kind and curious. He's a bit hyper and can delivery news (sometimes bad news!) in a way that feels lacking in care but it's not. Sometime's he talks a bit fast and can run through the course of action quick and he'll need to repeat again. Just ask him to... We are doing a pretty straight forward medicated IUI cycle which I'm in the middle of. We did however put the cycle on hold to get rid of an ovarian cyst that was found during a visit last month. Two weeks of BC did the job and the IUI is on track to happen soon.
Everyone I have talked with at FIRM (nurses, staff, Drs etc) have been helpful and knowledgeable. The location of our clinic is about 3 hours away from the MAIN location so you will have to travel for some procedures (IVF, certain IUIs etc). Sometimes it can take a while to be seen so plan accordingly. It took over an hour on a few visits but sometimes I get seen right away... Dr. Duffy (and perhaps all the doctors at FIRM) are more aggressive and more willing to try new treatments/tests than our previous clinic. This is something we need right now
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy was the first Dr. to diagnose my husband with severe male factor infertility. At the time this was a lot to take in and very emotional. I felt he was too blunt (he isn't really) and I wanted a second opinion. We ended up doing IVF at another clinic. Through the years of this journey I've grown a thicker skin and learned blunt is good. We are now back at FIRM and back with Dr. Duffy set up to try IUI using donor (a known to us donor) sperm. After being at 2 clinics I've realized Dr. Duffy (and perhaps all the doctors at FIRM) are more aggressive and more willing to try new treatments/tests than our previous clinic. This is something we need right now... aggression. Dr. Duffy is also very curious and excitable and truly wants to get to the bottom of the problems.

Dr. Duffy is very knowledgeable, kind and curious. He's a bit hyper and can delivery news (sometimes bad news!) in a way that feels lacking in care but it's not. Sometime's he talks a bit fast and can run through the course of action quick and he'll need to repeat again. Just ask him to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy remembered after we returned to FIRM after 1.5 years of treatment at another clinic. He is very through and wants to get to the bottom of the issue and you can tell!
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We are about to do our first IUI at FIRM with Dr. Duffy. We are doing a pretty straight forward medicated IUI cycle which I'm in the middle of. We did however put the cycle on hold to get rid of an ovarian cyst that was found during a visit last month. Two weeks of BC did the job and the IUI is on track to happen soon.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff at FIRM is much larger than my previous clinic. This makes it a little harder to develop relationships with them but they are all kind and do what they can to help as far as I can tell.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Everyone I have talked with at FIRM (nurses, staff, Drs etc) have been helpful and knowledgeable. The location of our clinic is about 3 hours away from the MAIN location so you will have to travel for some procedures (IVF, certain IUIs etc). Sometimes it can take a while to be seen so plan accordingly. It took over an hour on a few visits but sometimes I get seen right away.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Duffy takes the time to sit and explain the options, the science, and best and worst case scenario. He has a busy practice but you don’t feel rushed when you are with him. He understands this process is challenging but he is in your corner and is always optimistic despite the presented hurdles.... I have low AMH/DOR. We went with max doses of Gonal F and Menopure and Stimmed for 14 days, I was a slow responder. We retrieved 5 eggs. 4 blatocysts came from that. 2 transfers, 2 embryos each time both a pregnancy was achieved.
Multiple locations [of FIRM] in Jacksonville is great. I wish the Baptist South office could do more procedures because the parking downtown is not convenient. Reminder calls and calls from billing to let you know what your costs will be prior to the visit, if any, would be really helpful.... 3 cycles was $15,500- meds separate. Frozen transfers are about $2500 each, not including meds... Great staff. Supportive, friendly but also show support and compassion through the process.
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy is all around a pleasant person to be around. He acts like your coach and pumps you up to feel confident that you can get a win. When and if things don’t go as planned, he is supportive and compassionate. He works with Boyt my husband and I to help us understand the Science, physiology, and lays out the path to have a successful pregnancy. My first cycle I worked with a few other doctors in the practice and wish that I hadn’t but I didn’t know I had the option to solely request Dr Duffy. He has a special way to help you remain positive when with others you left feeling hopeless.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Do your best to schedule all your appointments With him rather than others in The office. Ivf is a tough journey and you want to go through it with a doctor that is a champion on your side through the entire thing.

Dr Duffy is a generally kind man that is knowledgeable about his profession. On most Occassions I feel he is slightly rushed, however, he listens to my concerns as long as I’m forward enough to stop him from leaving...sometimes I feel like he is board or complacent with my treatment. Overall, I choose to continue to see him because I have faith in his knowledge & we did get pregnant once under his care... it ended in loss.... but we are getting ready to try again.
The downtown location [of Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] is “nicer”- sometimes you will experience a longer than expected wait before your appointment...The clinic is always clean and brightly colored with big comfy couches while you wait. I’ve also visited the south side office many times and it’s great as well. It’s smaller and less “plush” as are most satellite clinics. I’ve never had a negative with either office.

Dr Duffy is a generally kind man that is knowledgeable about his profession. On most Occassions I feel he is slightly rushed, however, he listens to my concerns as long as I’m forward enough to stop him from leaving. He is the 2nd Dr I’ve seen at this clinic, and while he is a vast improvement from my 1st experience, sometimes I feel like he is board or complacent with my treatment. Overall, I choose to continue to see him because I have faith in his knowledge & we did get pregnant once under his care... it ended in loss.... but we are getting ready to try again.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask him to explain what he is telling you if you don’t understand... sometimes it’s like he forgets to explain things where anyone could understand them- but answers questions well. Don’t be too timid.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I began treatment with metformin and timed intercourse. We conceived and experienced our 1st loss. Then we did Clomid 50mg cd5-9 with Time Intercourse again. Upped Clomid to 100mg cd 3-9 + IUI. Upped Clomid to 150mg cd3-9 + IUI, positive pregnancy test & beta. Then miscarriage. We decided to take a break trying after this loss.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
At FIRM we have more contact with the dr’s than the nurses which is great. Every time I call in I speak with a nurse- and they have always been polite & helpful. The nurse that called with pregnancy test results is always compassionate & kind with good or bad news.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
My insurance pays for anything diagnostic - my copay is $40. Any fertility treatment is not covered, $125 for trigger shot, $30 for Clomid per cycle, $165 for hcg blood draws, I’m unsure how much each baseline and follicle check u/s was- I believe $130. IUI was $390 plus all the other costs mentioned above.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
With my first pregnancy after my beta draw, my progesterone was low... the nurse that called with my results told me they were calling in a progesterone suppository to my pharmacy- this was around 4pm... when I arrived at my pharmacy there was no Rx.... which made me panic as low progesterone can cause miscarriage- I was able to call the on cal Dr and get my Rx that same night. But it was quite upsetting to have to deal with all of that. In the end, my pregnancy ended in loss.

Dr. Duffy is an extremely educated RE who is also extremely compassionate and warm. As a more sensitive individual, I needed a RE with a warmer bedside manner and I believe I've found that with Dr. Duffy. I always feel as though he has enough time to answer any and all of my questions and I never feel rushed. He is always very positive about the course of treatment, which I appreciate.
Everyone I've met thus far [at FL Institute for Repro Med- Jax] has been very warm and compassionate. The nurses are quick to respond if you call and are very helpful. The only minor issue I've had is in contacting the billing department. At times, it can take several days for them to contact you back. Otherwise, I've had no negative experiences with this clinic... IUI ~ $700 IVF ~ $9000 - $25000 We are choosing to do the 3 cycle IVF package at $18,000 and PGS testing at around $4000.

Be sure to prepare your questions in advanced. While he does a decent job educating you about the course of treatment you will likely have other questions that he won't address unless you bring them up.

I'm still under treatment but Dr. Duffy reviewed my records from my OB and determined I had unexplained infertility. My husband already had a SA so he sent me for more Bloodwork. Afterwords he wanted to do an IUI (I had two previously with my OB). My husband and I felt like another was a waste of time so we asked to go straight to IVF and Dr. Duffy agreed. We are about to start medication for IVF and hoping all goes well!

From the first time I started seeing Dr. Duffy he has always made my husband and I feel like a human. He always remembered our names and our situation.... He consulted with one of his other partners and decided that they would do my surgery together and it was a success.... Although I am still in my TTC journey I would recommend Dr. Duffy to everyone. He listens to his patients and value your input and EXPLAINS EVERYTHING!
I LOVE the fact that the clinic has multiple offices in the north Florida region and the doctors travel on different days to the different offices.... I only had to go to Jacksonville for retrievals, transfers, and surgeries. The clinic is so beautiful and always clean. Everything is well organized and coordinated.... The nursing staff was respectful and I like you feel like a family when you go there.
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Duffy is one of the best doctors I have seen. He is very compassionate and encouraging. I started seeing him the third year into my journey and I was a nervous wreck and depressed. He was so calming and he believed in me even when I didn't believe in my own journey. I remember after my HSG when It was discovered that I had Ashermans syndrome and my cervix was blocked he explained everything with pictures and explained exactly what will need to be done. He also told us that my case was difficult but he will give it his all. He consulted with one of his other partners and decided that they would do my surgery together and it was a success. After the surgery I was so genuinely happy for us and being able to move on to our first IVF cycle. During my first cycle h again explained everything in detail and listened to all my concerns during the process and always addressed all my list of questions with no hesitation. I never felt rushed. One thing that some may see as a negative but i don't mind is the wait time but that's because he never rushes his patients and he will talk to you and explain every single detail with pictures and videos and answer all your questions do appointments are never 10 minutes. Due to scheduling he was unable to do my retrieval but he called me the next day to check on but he was able to do my transfer. I had a positive pregnancy test but a few weeks later I had a miscarriage. After 4 years of trying, stage IV endometriosis, uterine fibroids I was completely devastated. I was depressed and it was hard but he continued to be positive and together we discussed different options and new protocol. Before my next cycle he wanted to repeat the HSG in which was discovered that I have hydrosalpinx in both tubes... and yet here we are another setback. Again he sat with us for a complete hour discussing different options until we made a decision. Although I am still in my TTC journey I would recommend Dr. Duffy to everyone. He listens to his patients and value your input and EXPLAINS EVERYTHING! He is calm and so compassionate and excellent bedside manner. I never leave an appointment feeling confuse about anything.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
The journey is not easy but he makes it less intimidating. He truly cares about all his patients and completely invest his time and effort in you and works hard to help you reach your goal of becoming parents. Don't be afraid to ask questions because he answers them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
From the first time I started seeing Dr. Duffy he has always made my husband and I feel like a human. He always remembered our names and our situation. he would sit for a long time and talk to us explaining everything. I remember my first HSG, it was painful because I also had Asherman syndrome and he had a difficult time getting into the cervix and I was literally shaking. He sat up and held my hands and helped me relax then he decided to stop prescribed me some anxiety medicine and told me to call my husband so he can join me, go pick up the meds and come back and I will be the last patient and he will stay as long as needed. I came back and was able to continue with the procedure as I was more relaxed and had my husband at my bedside.
Describe the protocols Daniel Duffy used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I will try my best to remember dosages. I was on birth control for a few weeks then I stimmed with Gonal F (I believe 600) and menopur 75, halfway through I added cetrotide (don't remember the dose) During retrieval 9 eggs were retrieved and 7 were fertilized from left ovary. Due to my severe endometriosis my right ovary was severely adhered to the back of my uterus and none of the eggs were able to be retrieved, total disappointment. (Plan to address this issue during my next surgery procedure along with the blocked tubes). 4 made it to day 5 for freezing and sent for PGS testing. only 1 came back normal (Heartbreak!!!) changes that will be made for next cycle will be adding growth hormone due to poor egg quality. Preparing for transfer I remember being on endometrin supp. Positive pregnancy test but low beta although doubling. The day before my first ultrasound I started bleeding.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The practice has multiple locations to accommodate the north Florida region due to a lack of RE's in the area. I had an opportunity to visit many of the locations and meet with many of the nurses and they were all very nice, compassionate, helpful, knowledgeable. The nursing staff was respectful and I like you feel like a family when you go there. With such a large practice I like the fact that they always remembered me and my husband name when we would see them in the halls or when they would greet us when we first walk in. The only negative is that while waiting for your appointment I believe due to the thin walls you can hear their conversations many times,
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I LOVE the fact that the clinic has multiple offices in the north Florida region and the doctors travel on different days to the different offices so it saves me the 2 1/2 hour drive to the main office. I only had to go to Jacksonville for retrievals, transfers, and surgeries. The clinic is so beautiful and always clean. Everything is well organized and coordinated.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I do not remember exactly but the cycle was $6,900 and transfer was $2,500
Describe Daniel Duffy's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
My doctor prefer and recommends single embryo transfers but said we can possibly transfer 2 next time. The office recommends one at a time though.

1st round of IUI: clomid 50 mg days 3-8 of my cycle.

Resulted in a chemical miscarriage. 2nd round of IUI: clomid 100mg days 3-8, went in for ultrasound on day 12 and the follicles were only half the size the needed to be, 3more days of clomid 150mg. Went in again on day 19 and they were to maturity they needed so they gave me a hcg shot(unsure of brand since they did in office) and we went back on day 20 for IUI. Resulted in a negative pregnancy.

Dr. Duffy is compassionate and competent and kind. He was friendly and supportive and treated me like a partner in the IVF process. He was a good listener, and took the time to answer my questions. I also really appreciate his willingness to think "outside of the box" when it came to my IVF protocol.... 1) testosterone cream for a few weeks before starting the cycle to improve egg quality. 2)Follistim and Cetrotide, relatively high doses because of diminished ovarian reserve. 3) HGH for egg quality 4) Genetic testing of embryos 5)Endometrial receptivity array (which I really ended up benefitting from)
Strengths: The clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] is relatively small which helps the patient feel known. Everyone was professional, supportive, and kind. Weaknesses: They are a busy clinic and sometimes it took a little while to hear back from a nurse.... The nursing staff was consistent, kind, and competent. I felt like I was in very good hands. They were also relatively responsive to questions and even helped me located some medication for a lower price.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Know that you most likely won't see him for every appointment, but the other doctors in the practice are very competent and professional. I honestly had very positive experiences with every single person.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Prior to going to Dr. Duffy at FIRM, I had received fertility treatments at Weill-Cornell in NYC and at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. At both of those places, I started out expecting to be treated like a human because my first encounters with the doctors at those places went well. But they were busy, and disorganized and didn't seem at all motivated to make adjustments to my protocol when their "cookie cutter" approaches didn't result in me getting pregnant. I felt like they viewed me as a failed case, and seemed to kind of lose interest in me as a patient. At first I was angry, then I was devastated. When I got the courage to reach out to Dr. Duffy and make an appointment, I went expecting more of the same. I had decided that I needed to adjust my expectations and anticipate that I would always feel like a number. But I was pleasantly surprised; he spent time looking over my records, listened closely to my story, and immediately suggested things we could do differently. He made me a part of the decision-making process and took the time to explain why he was suggesting certain things. From that point on, the nurses and other physicians in the practice were consistently professional, responsive, and caring. There were moments when I needed to push back and track nurses down for information, but at no point in the process did I feel abandoned or dropped. I felt supported all the way through the retrieval, the testing, and the transfer. And because I lived several states away, Dr. Duffy coordinated with a local RE to help ensure I got all of the necessary testing and support until it was time for me to find an OB.

Describe Daniel Duffy's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
My doctor did not have a strong preference in my case because of my age and because I had a very limited number of embryos to transfer after PGS testing (only two). He said he would support me in transferring two if that was what I wanted to do.

Brown fertility Tampa location. Doctor is great. Management is great. Nursing staff needs a bit of work. Still training and learning for a new location. Strengths would be treating everyone equally. Also being a very affordable clinic. Weaknesses would be there phone service provider, it’s very hard to get ahold of the doctor.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Brown Fertility.
The is is a newer facility, brown fertility has been around a long time but Tampa is the newest location. They are still training there staff and need some organization, and better communication right now.
Describe your experience with Brown Fertility.
Brown fertility Tampa location. Doctor is great. Management is great. Nursing staff needs a bit of work. Still training and learning for a new location. Strengths would be treating everyone equally. Also being a very affordable clinic. Weaknesses would be there phone service provider, it’s very hard to get ahold of the doctor. You have to go through the phone service that sometimes has no idea what’s going on. They should be briefed better.

Dr. Duffy was very thorough and knowledgable with his fertility information education. He asked us lots of personal questions, why we were there and what we wanted to accomplish. He set a treatment plan that seemed to work with what information we knew for ourselves...[protocol] Clomid and Letrazole for 5 days on period day 3. Day 10, Ultrasound, ovulation booster shot and progesterone meds, followed by IUI on day 12.
The nursing staff [of Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] was very friendly and warm. Made myself and husband feel comfortable and like we mattered...The wait times can be lengthy. There is a little feeling of rushing through the appointments but don't know what else to expect for them...[clinic error]Had bloodwork done early in process but doctor never saw it to review before first cycle procedure.
How was your experience with Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Duffy is very smart, educated and passionate about fertility. It shows in his detailed communication at each meeting. He does tend to talk fast and a lot so asking questions and getting clarity is important.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Make sure to ask questions whenever you have them. Its easy to leave an appointment without asking anything because of the trust and open ears when he is talking, you tend to forget.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He’s amazing! He [Dr. Duffy] takes time to talk to us. He’s always ready to discuss next steps. When our first iui wasn’t successful he adjusted all of my doses and the time frame. He was definitely trying to solve the issue. We are excited to complete our first ivf procedure within the next couple months.... After the blood results came back Dr Duffy stayed he would have never diagnosed me with that and the medication was a waste. He’s adjusted every cycle so I would become pregnant!
It [FL Inst Repro Med]is in the Baptist south hospital on the 5 floor. The office is extremely clean and welcoming. They have magazines, sanitizer, music, and a restroom. When you walk in you sign in and then wait for them to call you. I also appreciate that they black out a patients name once you are checked in.... They [nursing staff] are amazing. They are friendly. It’s a stressful time and they ease the pain by understanding and helping you right away.

Dr. Duffy was kind of like a "mad scientist!" He was also a realist, but in a caring way. He moved through the process quickly, but I never once felt like he didn't care....He explained every part of the process scientifically, so you'd sometimes have to ask the "softer" questions. You could tell he loves what he does from the science aspect. He talked quickly, so you'd have to jump in with your questions, but he'd always take time to answer and fully explain. At the same time though, he was warm and excited for his patients.
Caring, supportive, comforting - everything you'd want during such an emotional and overwhelming process. The clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] is large, accessible, organized, clean, etc. Lot's of appointment options, two locations, flexible appointment hours, etc.... Their office advocates for single embryo transfers and we followed their guidance on this. We didn't push back or question.

He explained every part of the process scientifically, so you'd sometimes have to ask the "softer" questions. You could tell he loves what he does from the science aspect. He talked quickly, so you'd have to jump in with your questions, but he'd always take time to answer and fully explain. At the same time though, he was warm and excited for his patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Duffy at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Write your questions down in advance. He moves at a fast pace. This process can be overwhelming for those of us that are in it the first time, who are longing for a baby, who are paying out of pocket, etc. I think that is sometimes lost on him, but not in a non-caring way. He's just excited!

Dr.Duffy took personal time in his office with my husband and myself to discuss our steps.... Dr.Duffy was a kind and warm hearted doctor. He made me feel at ease during my procedure. Afterwards, we were welcomed into his office to discuss the next steps of the process. The only downfall was that the procedure was more painful than expected.... Be honest and open about your concerns. Dr.Duffy has a lot of information to share!
This is a very nice clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] with multiple locations. You are even able to get some bloodwork conducted in Georgia if needed.... Seemed like a typical nursing staff. However, I really appreciated their understanding of us running late as we got lost on the way.... I was disappointed with some things not being inclusive for the price. Having to come up with additional funds for pre transfer requirements was not easy.

This is a very nice clinic with multiple locations. You are even able to get some bloodwork conducted in Georgia if needed. I did have a hard time finding the location a few years back as they had just recently moved out of the hospital area. However, the staff was very understanding and told us not to rush. The office is very nice and neat. It could probably use a better magazine selection lol The doctor was very warm and friendly. Unfortunately the procedure was more painful than I expected. The doctor was very knowledgeable and invited us to discuss the plans in his office. I would recommend this clinic to friends and family

I always felt important and like my concerns were being heard and addressed. Every time we had a set back Dr. Duffy was compassionate and pro active so that we didn't lose any ground. Everything was fully explained to me and if I had a question about something or needed it clarified he did it without hesitation...He really got to know me as a person not just another number. It makes you feel special that someone takes the time and really listens.
They have a lot of locations which is helpful, however that means the doctors have to travel between them. This can sometimes make it challenging to track down your doctor to be seen especially last minute....The entire nursing staff was wonderful. But I have to say Patty and the main office was so nice, informative, helpful, caring, and compassionate...I won a free cycle at one of their seminars. Then I had to pay for my FET later on.. Also the wait times can be alittle long, but that is because he [Dr. Duffy] does not rush his paitients and gives them the time they need.

Dr. Duffy took time to answer all my questions, never made me feel rushed or like a number, and took time to show he cares... very personable and knowledgeable. The only downside for treatment with Dr. Duffy is that he is almost always running late. I know hat he spends extra time with his patients and answers questions, so I tended to overlook his lack of punctuality...I was 350iu Gonal F, 150iu Menopur, Cetrotide, and Lupron trigger. I don't remember any rationale given for this particular protocol.
Strengths [at FIRM] are definitely communication and education. I can't really think of any weaknesses. I would recommend a new patient try out each doctor at the office to decide who is the best fit because each doctor has a very different personality...The nursing staff was excellent. They were great about answering questions, returning phone calls, and their blood taking skills were excellent.

Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Strengths are definitely communication and education. I can't really think of any weaknesses. I would recommend a new patient try out each doctor at the office to decide who is the best fit because each doctor has a very different personality.

Dr Duffy was very patient, and listened to all of my fears. He researched the issues I was having and suggested some alternative treatments...We tried three IUI with ICSI, all producing negative results. We tried two IVF cycles with my eggs, the first resulted in a chemical pregnancy, the rest all negative. We tried donor egg once, all transfers had a negative result. We tried one donor embryo transfer which had a negative result.
All of the nurses [at FIRM] were very thorough, understanding, available and compassionate about us and our care...The clinic was great, all staff were helpful, and I loved the individual care that we received...I feel costs were reasonable. We paid $11,000 for our first IVF, $6,000 for our second, $11,000 for Donor Egg, $2500 for donor embryo. Frozen transfers were around $2,000...He [Dr. Daniel Duffy] is amazing, but be prepared to wait a little bit as he gets backed up.
