Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Walmer was very straight forward while also being compassionate...He kept in touch and was always quick to answer...I was ok with doing a single transfer like my doctor recommended...We did egg retrieval and decided to go the frozen transfer route to give my body time to heal ...I am glad we did because I developed OHSS. Two months later we did a transfer...I was on progesterone injections and estrogen tablets
They [nurse of Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] were always so friendly and compassionate...They were also easy to get in touch with and very thorough...[est.cost] a copay at each visit of $60. We had to pay a little over $12,000 for egg retrieval and $3000 for speed aspiration...The injestions were roughly $4,000. Then just prior to starting FET we paid another $5000... Everyone was so compassionate and made sure I was always comfortable and at ease.
How was your experience with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Dr. Walmer was very straight forward while also being compassionate. He wanted us to start a family as bad as we did. He kept in touch and was always quick to answer. He was very calming and knowledgeable. I have recommended him to everyone that I know. He gives you the facts but in a gentle way.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Dr Walmer is on the ball. He is ready to get going and get you started on a family. He knows exactly what plan is next. I would definitely say to trust him and let him do his job. He knows what he is doing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
I always felt like a human under this doctors care. From the lady’s at the front desk to the nurses to the doctor. Everyone was so compassionate and made sure I was always comfortable and at ease.
Describe the protocols David Walmer used in your cycles at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
Luckily my treatment was pretty straight forward. My husband has cystic fibrosis so we knew that was why we couldn’t get pregnant. We did egg retrieval and decided to go the frozen transfer route to give my body time to heal from that which I am glad we did because I developed OHSS. Two months later we did a transfer. I was on progesterone injections and estrogen tablets. Unfortunately I stopped at 7 weeks due to miscarriage.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
The nursing staff was nothing but amazing! They were always so friendly and compassionate. They remembered personal things about me and would make conversation to ease the nerves. I had a very bad phobia of needles and they were so patient with me. They were also easy to get in touch with and very thorough!
Describe your experience with Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
The clinic is great at getting you in for an appointment. It is a very comforting and nice clinic. It is very warm and inviting. The only weakness is having to come back and forth so much. I wish there was a way to combine some appointments but I know they have a strategy behind what they do.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
We had a copay at each visit of $60. We had to pay a little over $12,000 for egg retrieval and $3000 for speed aspiration a week before my baseline ultrasound. The injestions were roughly $4,000. Then just prior to starting FET we paid another $5000
Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
I was ok with doing a single transfer like my doctor recommended. Being that we are very young and all my labs looked normal, we believed I wouldn’t have had trouble getting pregnant if it won’t for male infertility.

Dr.Walmer gives you a very personal experience and makes you feel like you aren’t just a number...Due to my husband having such low numbers and be possibly having final damage , he suggested going to IVF , I told him I would like to try at least 1 a IUI , he listened to me and allowed me to do a IUI even though the chances were slim , my husband had 700,000 on IUI day and Dr.Walmer still gave us hope , needless to say we are embarking on a IVF journey . Frozen embryo transfer with ICSI
[Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] Strengths are the personal experiences, great patient portal access, weaknesses are maybe the front end staff , they are not as nice as they could be...The nurse staff was absolutely wonderful and I was so glad that I could contact them via the patient portal whenever i had questions or concerns...

Dr. Walmer was always available to answer questions and thoroughly explain both the treatment plan and the reasons behind the treatment plan. He probably took longer than an hour with us on our first appointment...was available for every ultrasound/appointment...UI was first recommended for us...all three cycles failed. IVF was a combo of menopur/gonal-f then ganirelx to avoid ovulation. Did PGT testing, so a frozen transfer that using oral estrogen and progesterone in oil
The clinic [at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] is small and there are very short wait times. Dr. Walmer was available for every ultrasound/appointment...You also get to know the nurses and the rest of the support team...always really quick to reply in the portal...the retrieval cycle was out of pocket and was something like 12K (teacher discount) ...they strongly recommended eSET

come with a list of questions.
Describe the protocols David Walmer used in your cycles at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
IUI was first recommended for us - and my insurance covered it. We did 7.5mg letrozole 10 days, all three cycles failed. IVF was a combo of menopur/gonal-f then ganirelx to avoid ovulation. Did PGT testing, so a frozen transfer that using oral estrogen and progesterone in oil. Atlantic batch cycles so both the egg retrieval and transfer cycles started with birth control.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Nursing staff was great, always really quick to reply in the portal and glad to answer questions.
Describe your experience with Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
The clinic is small and there are very short wait times. Dr. Walmer was available for every ultrasound/appointment, which I liked. You also get to know the nurses and the rest of the support team. As a data nerd, I appreciated the size of the clinic - any 'average' stat is likely to apply to your care team given that there are few doctors/embryologists whereas, in larger clinics, there may be significant provider-to-provider variation that is not reflected in overall statistics.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
IUIs were covered by insurance, so some small copay + letrozole, which is really cheap. the retrieval cycle was out of pocket and was something like 12K (teacher discount) and the transfer cycle was also out of pocket and about 3K. Meds covered by insurance (mostly) were about 2K.
Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Given our age and the fact that the embryos were tested, they strongly recommended eSET

Dr. Walmer acknowledged my emotional involvement during the entire process. He was the only provide that offered to try with my own eggs even though he highly recommended donor eggs for our best chance of success. He was flexible in scheduling phone appointments to discuss treatment and even utilized his personal time to meet my schedules needs...When utilizing donor eggs, single embryo transfer is recommended because the eggs are younger and hence less likely to have chromosome abnormalities
My [Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] nurse was present for every telephone appointment scheduled and completely the task assigned for that appointment. She was not personable and often was following standard treatment regimens... $30k was spent for all treatment completed under his care. Including ERA, mock transfer, saline sonogram, donor egg and fertilization, ICSI, PGT-A, 2 embryo transfers and medications...This clinic has providers and coordinators that clearly have the same goal as their patients.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Do not hesitate to calm your mind and nerves by asking questions. Fertility treatment is stressful and there’s a lot of emotions involved. We as patients worry about some of the smallest details and then try to keep them to ourselves because we feel they’re silly. Don’t. Ask and he will give you answers that will instantly settle you.

Pentoxifylline was utilized during my second transfer (after my first ended in a chemical pregnancy) from day one until I started Progesterone in Oil injections to aid and encourage circulation to my developing lining.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists. (Assigned nurse: Eboney)
My nurse was present for every telephone appointment scheduled and completely the task assigned for that appointment. She was not personable and often was following standard treatment regimens. She tried to reschedule my medication regimen when there was a variation from the standard. It was not in error it was in relation to my diagnosis. It is important to read patients charts prior to appointments to be able to accurately determine patient needs.

Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
When utilizing donor eggs, single embryo transfer is recommended because the eggs are younger and hence less likely to have chromosome abnormalities that one may see in older eggs or one with DOR. Multiple embryo transfer puts you at higher risk for multiple pregnancy, increasing the risks of complications during your pregnancy.

Dr Walmer spent 2 hours talking to us and explaining why we probably haven’t gotten pregnant yet due to my endometriosis. He explained things in a way the past 3 doctors never did. We felt Valued and taken care of. We have never felt this way with any doctor before ... We tried 3 months of clomid with no response , 4 iui’s but Dr Walmer wanted to do a higher dosage of letrozole for a longer period to try to produce more eggs to get where they need to go.
Strengths- everyone [Atlantic Repro Med Specialists] we met was very nice and welcoming. The lobby/ waiting room had water, tea, coffee and snacks. They were all organized, and they seemed to really care. They have a portal and are quick to answer questions. There’s an on call doctor and nurse at all time ... They were kind and courteous but he is the one that calls me after ultrasounds and bloodwork
How was your experience with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?

[Dr. Walmer] is a very thorough and intelligent doctor who will go above and beyond to care for you...My treatment plan...consisted of timed intercourse with Letrozole to aid in ovulation and occasional ovidrel injections to know a more precise time of ovulation. At the beginning we tried provera to induce a period but i did not react ideally so we began Letrozole shortly after. One cycle we used Estrace to increase estradiol levels but it was not needed other cycles. I was monitored with trans vaginal ultrasounds, saline ultrasounds, and an HSG dye test. My husband also had semen analysis performed...is a very thorough and intelligent doctor who will go above and beyond to care for you.
You are in great hands with a wonderful doctor and awesome nurses [at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists]...

In our only ivf cycle our first retrieval yielded zero eggs. He [Dr. David Walmer] had me take another trigger and come back in for another retrieval on the same cycle (something that I later learned is extremely rare). Of the three eggs we had one make it to transfer and is now our sweet, spunky little boy. Dr. Walmer is incredibly knowledgeable, keeps up to date on current research, and is one of the most genuine people I have ever met.
I have no complaints about the clinic [ARMS- Raleigh]. The financial coordinator was thorough during our appointment, giving options and information on any additional costs that may incur. The patient portal was amazing as I used it often. I messaged once on a weekend because I was not sent an injection pen with my medications (through a separate pharmacy) and the other doctor on staff met me that day with a pen. I couldn't recommend ARM more.
How was your experience with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
I went to three clinics or consultations before deciding on Dr Walmer for our ivf. He made such a difficult process seem easy and full of hope. We had a few setbacks and he always took the time to find a solution. In our only ivf cycle our first retrieval yielded zero eggs. He had me take another trigger and come back in for another retrieval on the same cycle (something that I later learned is extremely rare). Of the three eggs we had one make it to transfer and is now our sweet, spunky little boy. Dr. Walmer is incredibly knowledgeable, keeps up to date on current research, and is one of the most genuine people I have ever met.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Stay away from Google and trust that he is doing the best course with your specific diagnosis in mind!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Dr. Walmer was the most kind doctor and followed up his warm bedside manner with lots of research, follow ups, and excellent care. He gave hugs and seemed to honestly care along every step of the way.
Describe the protocols David Walmer used in your cycles at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
To help with my sanity I kept away from overanalyzing the protocols for my cycle. I wanted to keep stress free during the process so put my trust in his decisions. I know this is not the route for everyone but I am so glad I did. Of course now I remember nothing of your protocols and slightly regret that since we may try again in the near future.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
I saw Dr. Walmer for most appointments but did communicate with the nurses a great deal through the patient portal. They were always quick to respond and friendly-even when I was a nervous wreck at times!
Describe your experience with Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
I have no complaints about the clinic. The financial coordinator was thorough during our appointment, giving options and information on any additional costs that may incur. The patient portal was amazing as I used it often. I messaged once on a weekend because I was not sent an injection pen with my medications (through a separate pharmacy) and the other doctor on staff met me that day with a pen. I couldn't recommend ARM more.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
My husband mostly handled the financial aspect but I believe it was 11/12 k for the procedure (ivf with icsi) and another 3k for medications. We paid out of pocket and they did help by providing a list of ways to get discounted medications.
Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Dr. Walmer strongly suggests single embryo and though I do agree we had no choice since only one embryo made it transfer.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Walmer is friendly but blunt. He took my cares and concerns and learned my husband and I. This way we have effective communication. Dr. Walmer knows that I have concerns about (if I proceed with IVF) embyros that I see them as life immediately. There fore Dr. Walmer knowing my concerns has expressed that we could and would be very conservative of ibproceeded with an IVF procedure. Dr. Walmer values human life. He is one of the most compassionate doctors I have ever met.
So far I have been very fond of everything about this clinic [Atlantic Repro Med]. The communication via the patient portal is phenomenal. The hours work great with my schedule and getting an appointment is never an issue. I feel valued as a patient and as a person here...I feel confident with the information on cost that has already been provided for us that we can formulate a game plan and will not have any surprises.

Be honest in how you feel. Be honest in what you want as a patient.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Dr. Walmer has been a huge blessing. He has taken his time with my husband and I, sat down with us and explained what is going on in a way that we can easily understand it. In his office on the verge of tear he offered support and a hug to me and a handshake to my husband. I feel like Dr. Walmer is a friend who wants nothing more than to see my husband and I become parents.
Describe the protocols David Walmer used in your cycles at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
I was prescribed letrezole to induce ovulation, my status was monitored via ultrasound. I then was told to start OPKs and time intercourse. A week after a positive be OPK I had blood work to monitor progesterone and estraiol. My first cycle was unsuccessful. Currently in my second cycle of leterzole with timed intercourse.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Most of my time is spent with Dr. Walmer himself. A nursing staff is present during ultrasound that Dr. Walmer peforms and leads me to the Ultrasound rooms however time spent with nursing staff is limited.

Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
So far my cost has been minimal due to insurance coverage I only pay for my specialist visit CoPay and my RX.

Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
For me consoding my views on life beginning as sperm meets egg and multiples carrying a higher risk, Dr. Walmer advised if we use IVF single embryo transfer.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
The compassion, care, and dedication that Dr. Walmer has is like no other doctor I've encountered. I live 2 hours away and he makes sure that we always have a steady stream of dialogue and communication through phone and email when we can't see each other in person. We work together as a team and I truly feel that he will help me make my dream of being a mother come true.
I've only really dealt with them [Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] over phone and email at this point (that's about to change with IVF) since I do most of my monitoring at my local RE 2 hours away. So far, everyone has been amazing!... I always respond well to his protocols, but just haven't gotten pregnant. 1 cycle of 10 mgs Letrozole cycle days 3-12, Pregnyl HCG trigger , 2 HCG boosters after doing the Stork otc (in lieu of an IUI since I've been an ambassador for the company and we are saving for IVF- no make factor so that doesn't make a difference). Another cycle just like that, but 12 mgs of Letrozole. Then another cycle with the 12 mgs but added in Estradiol patches on day of trigger to stop spotting before period. This current cycle was 40 mgs of tamoxifen instead of Femara /Letrozole.
How was your experience with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
I have quite the confusing case of unexplained infertility. I tend to stump most of the doctors I work with. Dr. Walmer continues to do everything he can to create protocols designed with our best interests in need. Every time I have had a question or concern, he responds by phone or email within the same day. He is the only doctor to successfully stop my pre-period spotting for the first time in over two and a half-years. I'm a tough case to crack, but his patience and persistence goes a long way on this journey. I feel like he's a part of my family, not just a doctor. That's how compassionate and caring he truly is!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
Please go see him and make him the first doctor you see! I wish I would have seen him the first time, over a year ago!

My situation is quite different than others because I technically go to two clinics. I've spent more time at my local RE to be remotely monitored, but so excited to spend more time at ARMS with IVF on the horizon!
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Typical to that of what you'd see everywhere- middle of the road, I guess.
Describe David Walmer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
We are about to embark on IVF and he is insisting upon only one embryo, even though I've repeatedly asked to do two. He says that after trying for this long, his goal is for me to have one healthy as possible pregnancy and twins are high risk. He said he will do as many transfers for siblings that I would like afterward.

Dr. Walmer was extremely nice and caring. The only negative thing I have to say is that, he never gave me a clear idea of what next steps I should take. I wasn't ever sure if IVF was the right step for me or not.... was on Letrozole for a few cycles but they gave me headaches. He also instructed my husband to take CoQ10. I haven't gotten pregnant yet so I'm not sure they helped.
The clinic [Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] is very warm and everyone is very kind.... IUI was about $900 and IVF was priced at about $17,000... I was on Letrozole for a few cycles but they gave me headaches. He also instructed my husband to take CoQ10. I haven't gotten pregnant yet so I'm not sure they helped.

From the moment we met Dr. Walmer we knew that he was a right fit to help us continue our family. Not only did he approach our situation with his expertise but he was also kind and compassionate....I feel like sometimes Dr. Walmer will try to limit some information so that the patient receives to eliminate stress. Unfortunately for me I google a lot and have a ton of questions. I can be a terrible patient, thinking of the worst case scenarios. Dr. Walmer always answered my crazy questions though and never made me feel crazy for it.
Strengths [of Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists] -Many early morning appointments. I live about an hour and twenty minutes from the clinic so early morning monitoring was important so I didn't miss much work. -Lab results always came back quickly -They offered a military discount -Seriously felt like I was a member of the family -The other doctor in the clinic, Dr. Copeland, was fantastic as well. My doctor was out for 2 of my monitoring appointments and she was absolutely fantastic Weaknesses None

Dr. Walmer was always so kind with his words and was wonderful at putting both myself and my partner at ease. He would answer my questions on nights and weekends. I never felt like I had a stupid question.
Describe the protocols David Walmer used in your cycles at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists and their degree of success.
Atlantic does batch cycling. I suppressed with birth control pills until the designated time. I had a baseline ultrasound and it was determined that I would not have to use Cetrocide. I stimmed for 11 days using 375u of Gonal-F and 20 units of a microdose HCG. Cetrocide was added starting on day 8 and I triggered with 5,000u of HCG with luteal support of 2,500u on both days 14 and 16 of the cycle. Retrieval was on day 13 of the cycle and we transferred one grade 3AB embryo on day 5.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
The entire nursing staff was excellent. They were quick to answer questions and very compassionate. I felt like they were rooting for us the entire time. I even had a nurse tell me that she had specifically come to work at this clinic because of the quality of care that they provided and she spoke of how much she loved her job. We even got personalized messages from a lot of the nurses after our positive pregnancy test.

Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Roughly, between copays for procedures covered under insurance and out of pocket expenses due to the IVF itself (I have no insurance coverage for IVF) we spent about $10,000 for a cycle (this is not including the IVF meds)

My husband was the memory for everything (mine is horrible!). After our initial consultation, my husband and I both had testing done to try to narrow down the issue. Since the issue was with me (female), Dr Walmer performed more detailed tests. I had to have 2 hysteroscopies, we tried injections to boost egg release, injections and pills for follicle stimulation, 3 IUI's.

I still recall Dr. Walker’s compassionate and caring demeanor and his ability to clearly explain information in an understandable manner. He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever seen. He explained everything thoroughly and in a kind and caring way, since the percentages were not in my favor. I still recall our experiences with him in a favorable way..
Listen to [the Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists doctor] carefully. He will explain everything you need to know. If you don’t understand (which is doubtful), ask him to explain. He is an expert in his field and an amazing human being...I still recall Dr. Walker’s compassionate and caring demeanor and his ability to clearly explain information in an understandable manner
How was your experience with David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists?
As I stated previously, even though 16 years have passed since I was a patient, I still recall Dr. Walker’s compassionate and caring demeanor and his ability to clearly explain information in an understandable manner. He is absolutely the best doctor I have ever seen. He explained everything thoroughly and in a kind and caring way, since the percentages were not in my favor. I still recall our experiences with him in a favorable way - many, many years later!! I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Although my experience with Dr. Walmer was prior to him being with his current practice (I was a patient in early to mid 2000), I felt obligated to write this review as I still recall his compassionate, caring manner during a stressful time in my life. He and God are the reason I have two beautiful children and find memories of my experience trying to conceive. He is the most humble and caring doctor I have ever found.

N/A. It was so long ago.

I wish I could remember but as I said, it was some time ago. Generally, I would just say be honest about your expectations. And understand that you need to ask questions if you don’t understand something you are to do on your treatment.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Walmer at Atlantic Reproductive Medicine Specialists.
Don’t remember but back then insurance didn’t pay for virtually anything.
