once the appointment is over, it is hard to get ahold of him [Dr. Saffan] again... When it was time for the procedure we found my husbands numbers were extremely low so the procedure was unsuccessful. Second cycle the same exact thing happens with low low numbers and he suggested we move to Ivf...Only had contact with him twice in the span of 5 months...He was straight to the point and did not sugar coat anything. He was invested when we saw him in his office but only ever heard from the nurses once we stepped out of his office. We never saw him in the office unless we requested an appointment with him.
Toni [nurse at Shady Grove Fertility] was very responsive and caring. She was easily reachable via email...I spent about 2500 for 2 IUI cycles including medication...This clinic is clean and very fast. The office is open early and can get you in and out very fast. Wait times are short and everyone you see is smiling. They have plenty of rooms for personal conversations...once the appointment is over, it is hard to get ahold of him [Dr. Saffan] again

He suggested us to go straight to IUI which was fun with me, that’s what I wanted. When it was time for the procedure we found my husbands numbers were extremely low so the procedure was unsuccessful. Second cycle the same exact thing happens with low low numbers and he suggested we move to Ivf
