The first few consultations [with Dr. Seifer] were very scientific and less human as to the frustration of feeling of being overwhelmed starting IVF. As visits progressed, Dr Seifer grew far more compassionate as he got to know more about my husband and I.... His explanations are thorough and being blunt about risks was much appreciated. At times he explains in medical terms that can be overwhelming when first getting started. All you have to do is ask questions and he breaks it down very simply
The entire nursing staff is what makes the Yale fertility clinic a compassionate place. Lakresha was by far the highlight of any visit. Going in at 7 am for blood and ultrasound so often can be a lot. Knowing I get to see Kree and her positive energy, infectious laugh, and true care for the journey was priceless...The insurance coordinator also needs to be more direct in terms of appx cost of a cycle knowing what the patients needs are

Describe the protocols David Seifer used in your cycles at Yale University and their degree of success.
My husband and I are both carriers for a single gene recessive mutation and needed to PGD/PGS testing. We did two egg retrieval’s to reach a total of 8 embryos to send for testing since the cost of testing is for up to 8. In addition I had a uterine polyp that needed removal. For the retrieval cycles i was injecting with follistim and menopur and triggered with leuprolide since my estrogen levels were high. I had 12 and 14 eggs retrieved and also had OHSS. After PDG/PDS testing there were 4 viable embryos for transfer. We selectively transferred 1 and am currently 6 weeks positive pregnancy test. 3 remain frozen

Describe your experience with Yale University.
Sometimes the waiting for am monitoring seems like a fertility factory. Maybe some way to smooth out the waiting outside before opening. Also, a medication advisement is much needed. Had I known that I could save money buying meds self pay rather than eating up my insurance allotment would have saved me quite a bit of money. The insurance coordinator also needs to be more direct in terms of appx cost of a cycle knowing what the patients needs are
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Seifer at Yale University.
I hit my insurance cap of 20,000 and spent an additional 22,000 out of pocket
