Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Grow has a calm and friendly nature. He speaks calmly while providing patients with needed information. His happy and optimistic nature rubs off on patients. He is honest and provides suggestions in a non-threatening and reassuring manner....When with Dr. Grow, I was part of a double blind research study. Some of the information I was not privy to during the study. But, in consultation, Dr. Grow made it clear that he was hopeful to get some eggs for retrieval.
The clinic [Ctr for Advanced Reproductive Services] was easily accessible off of a major highway. It was clean, welcoming, bathrooms easily accessible, a coffee/tea bar, and bloodwork lab/patient suites organized downstairs from monitoring.... The nurses were excellent. So kind. My primary nurses Shannon and Glorimar were fabulous. They were understanding, honest, compassionate, knowledgeable, eased my worries, informative, and were accessible through the entire process.

Describe the protocols Daniel Grow used in your cycles at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical) and their degree of success.
When with Dr. Grow, I was part of a double blind research study. Some of the information I was not privy to during the study. But, in consultation, Dr. Grow made it clear that he was hopeful to get some eggs for retrieval. Once I began my cycle I was monitored just as must or even more so than a regular patient. Even before beginning the Study I had a consultation with Dr. Grow, a physical, two ultrasounds, internal exam, and multiple panels of blood work. I went in on day three, received an ultrasound, and was given the injectible study medication to take, I began with 12 mcg. I went back on day five and had more blood work and an ultrasound and was put on Ganirelix. I was also upped to 15 mcg of the injectible. I continued Ganirelix and the injectible, coming in on days 7, 8, and 9 for ultrasound and more bloodwork. On day 9 I took Novarel as a trigger. I retrieved on day 11 and began Endometrin tablets the following day.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Doctor Grow is kind and clearly knowledgeable about his field. At our early visits he took the time to listen to me and my husband. He provided me with additional information when requested and was honest (but gentle) about expectations. ... We started with screening for both me and partner which included full blood work (for both), sperm analysis, and genetic screening. Once these results were in, we met to discuss and create our stim protocol. Dr. Grow used SQ injections of menopur, ganirelex, and gonal-f to stimulate my ovaries.
Strengths include cutting-edge technology, informative staff, and integrative approaches to fertility. The major weakness of this clinic [Ctr for Adv Repro Svcs] is their finance team. I never felt like I could get a straight answer from our finance coordinator . ... The monitoring appointments were a well-oiled machine. Patients coming in for bloodwork only were seen downstairs in the lab. When I needed both an ultrasound and bloodwork both were done upstairs. I appreciate that no matter what I was having done, it was done in one location.
How was your experience with Daniel Grow at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
Doctor Grow is kind and clearly knowledgeable about his field. At our early visits he took the time to listen to me and my husband. He provided me with additional information when requested and was honest (but gentle) about expectations. While our first attempt did not result in a live birth, I am hopeful that with Dr. Grow's care our next transfer will work.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Grow at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
After experiencing a chemical pregnancy, I think he should have been the one to call me with the news, not his nurse.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Grow at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
While Doctor Grow has been very kind and helpful, what really improved my experience was his nurse. She has been extremely helpful, knowledgable, and accessible.

We started with screening for both me and partner which included full blood work (for both), sperm analysis, and genetic screening. Once these results were in, we met to discuss and create our stim protocol. Dr. Grow used SQ injections of menopur, ganirelex, and gonal-f to stimulate my ovaries. My trigger shot was done via SQ hcg. My eggs were then retrieved and fertilized via ICSI due to my husband's sperm motility. Five day blastocysts were transferred and received assisted hatching. I was started on crinone before and after transfer. I transferred two blastocycsts and got a positive pregnancy test. My hcg levels continued to rise, as evidenced by blood work, but my blood work one and a half weeks after indicated a chemical pregnancy. All medications other than vitamins have been stopped at this time. I will start my frozen transfer at my next period and will also begin crinone at that time.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical). (Assigned nurse: Shannon Brown)
Shannon has been an absolute integral part of this journey. From day one I felt like I could ask her anything. She was always timely in her communication with me and her calm demeanor always put me at ease. She is a true asset to the team.

What specific things went wrong at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical).
I went in for more bloodwork 72 hours after getting a positive pregnancy test. The clinic did not call me with results as promised and I had to call the next day to speak to my nurse directly. This was not the fault of my direct team as it was a weekend, but it caused additional stress at an already difficult time. Again, this was due to a lack of communication but is in no way the fault of my direct team (Dr. Grow).

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He [Dr. Daniel Grow] didn't mention PGS or give me an estimated chance of success on his own and I had to bring it up...My doctor did not communicate [his Eset Approach] with me...My first few rounds I very much felt like a number. I rarely saw him or had any communication with him. I had a conversation with him about my frustration with this experience. Afterwards he really made an effort to be more available, communicate more and treat me more like a person.
My nurse Shannon [at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services] is excellent and a good communicator...They did not call with the results of a pregnancy test when I was scheduled to take clomid that evening. I had to call the doctor on call to get the results...You may rarely see your doctor. Many scans are performed by random doctors and ultrasound technicians. Your doctor may not do your retrieval or transfer. They have a schedule for retrieval and your retrieval will be done by whoever is scheduled to perform retrievals that day.
How was your experience with Daniel Grow at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
He genuinely wants to help people get pregnant. He was willing to look at my case and come with an individualized plan. He has a good bedside manner but you may not see him frequently. He was not good about communicating my chance of success and only did so when I asked after several failed cycles.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Grow at Center for Advanced Reproductive Services (UCONN Medical)?
Ask him specific questions. He didn't mention PGS or give me an estimated chance of success on his own and I had to bring it up.

Dr. Grow has been amazing. They are compassionate and helpful.... We came to him because we couldnt afford the previous doctor. He gave us a few different affordable options. He is always so kind, direct with information presented. I always feel well informed and well cared for at this office.... We are still in the process but I can tell you they hold your hand every step if the way. Everyone has always been kind and helpful.
They [UCONN] are great and the tea and beverages are a nice touch. Everyone is always kind at the office. I'm always treated well and everyone smiles and has a general happy disposition. I've never had an bad experience either in office or when the staff has contacted me by phone.... My nurse gave me her email and communicates with me promptly when I have questions or need information.... Very affordable and extremely helpful with payments for services. I feel like I'm working with a doctors office and not a collection agency.
