Dr. LeBlanc embodies all of the qualities a patient would hope for in an infertility specialist. She is caring, knowledgeable and straightforward. I always felt that she was available for my questions and took her time to make sure our visits were productive. She consistently provided me the choice of options for treatment, while providing guidance when asked for her opinion
The [Hanabusa IVF] office is filled with staff that provide a very warm, supportive environment...My nurse was particularly suitable for my personality and the level of care needed...There is a lot of information from the start that covers fees and the process. The fee sheet that provides fees is very confusing and the individual assigned to explain was not very helpful. It is also not convenient that you have to call to schedule bloodwork.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Diana LeBlanc at Hanabusa IVF?
Don't be afraid to ask questions if you don't understand a step in the process or a term being used. I think it is easy for professionals to think that patients know more than they do about treatment due to the vast amount of information available online about infertility.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Diana LeBlanc at Hanabusa IVF?
Dr. LeBlanc was knowledgeable about my particular situation and my family. I always felt as though she was personally treating me and cared about the outcome. She is personable and professional, while also straightforward about the potential downsides of IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Hanabusa IVF. (Assigned nurse: Ryan Nestler)
My nurse was particularly suitable for my personality and the level of care needed. She was always available to help me, even when the need for help was caused by my own delay or misunderstanding. She too was honest with me and set expectations as needed. Coincidentally, there were no nurses or staff there that I didn't genuinely like and feel cared for by. The office is filled with staff that provide a very warm, supportive environment.

There is a lot of information from the start that covers fees and the process. The fee sheet that provides fees is very confusing and the individual assigned to explain was not very helpful. It is also not convenient that you have to call to schedule bloodwork. I am a busy professional and it is often difficult to schedule calls during the workday.

She [Dr. LeBlanc] explains clearly about my status. She is not going too optimistic without evidence which helped me to stay calm during the process. She has a good bedside manner and it was nice to have only her doing my ultrasound...[she] explained all the details and possibilities(pros and cons) at the first consultation and throughout the process, she explained clearly based on my own ultrasound and blood results.
This [Hanabusa IVF] clinic seems to have many options for someone who doesn’t want to do lots of meds to stimulate. There are mini IVF, natural IVF, Low Complexity IVF(LCIVF) as well as regular IVF. I just wanted to try as little injections as possible for the first try since I was too overwhelmed for the injections and LCIVF was a perfect match for me...I had a LCIVF and it was under $5000 total.

She [Dr. LeBlanc] went over all of our records and came up with a plan of care. She gave me honest answers and she truly believed she could help us. She gave us hope and restored our confidence in this difficult process. She is compassionate and knowledgeable and I am grateful for her and her team...I am always able to speak with someone when I need to.
Every [Hanabusa IVF] nurse I have had the pleasure of dealing with has been extremely kind, caring, respectful and responsive...I think their strengths are that the doctors and nurses really treat you as an individual and coordinate your care based on how your body reacts to medications or other treatments. You are not a number and are not on a general protocol that all patients are on. Your treatment is designed for you, which is extremely important in this process. Their billing system is a strength and weakness, it is pay as you go a la carte billing
How was your experience with Diana LeBlanc at Hanabusa IVF?
I recently started working with Dr. LeBlanc as I changed clinics after multiple failed IVF transfers. I had 4 consultations with other clinics and I knew Dr. LeBlanc was the right doctor for me when I had our consultation. She went over all of our records and came up with a plan of care. She gave me honest answers and she truly believed she could help us. She gave us hope and restored our confidence in this difficult process. She is compassionate and knowledgeable and I am grateful for her and her team.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Diana LeBlanc at Hanabusa IVF?
I would advise the patient to do their research and make sure you feel comfortable with the RE you choose. I loved how personable and caring Dr. LeBlanc made me feel. She truly makes me feel like we are a team and in this together instead of just a patient.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Diana LeBlanc at Hanabusa IVF?
Dr. LeBlanc and her team has really worked with me and my husband to make sure I feel like we are a top priority as a patient. Her and her nurses are always so kind and have gone above and beyond to help make sure I can still be seen even with my rigorous work schedule. Her and the nurses are always very responsive if I have a question. I am always able to speak with someone when I need to.
Describe the protocols Diana LeBlanc used in your cycles at Hanabusa IVF and their degree of success.
So far I have only had one natural cycle in order to have the receptiva test performed. I am currently in prep phase taking estrogen and vaginal progesterone to suppress my ovaries as last cycle my ovaries already recruited a dominant follicle at cycle day 3 which would not be optimal for an egg retrieval
Describe your experience with your nurse at Hanabusa IVF. (Assigned nurse: Alyssa)
Every nurse I have had the pleasure of dealing with has been extremely kind, caring, respectful and responsive.
Describe your experience with Hanabusa IVF.
I am a fairly new patient. I think their strengths are that the doctors and nurses really treat you as an individual and coordinate your care based on how your body reacts to medications or other treatments. You are not a number and are not on a general protocol that all patients are on. Your treatment is designed for you, which is extremely important in this process. Their billing system is a strength and weakness, it is pay as you go a la carte billing. You pay for services as you get them, there are no packages. So, you can feel this is either helpful that you are not paying for anything that you don't necessarily need or some may find this frustrating that you have to pay at every visit. In addition, because this clinic is very tailored to your results, sometimes there is not a lot of time to get the medications that are needed, but they always help to make it work for you.

She [Dr. LeBlanc] reviewed all of my medical information prior to speaking with her. She was supportive and compassionate to my needs and what have have gone through during this infertility journey...She was very knowledgeable in regards to my fertility issues and gave me a lot of helpful and uplifting information. I didn't feel like I was being told what I wanted to hear in order for her to earn my business like I have felt with other clinics...
They did a a good job communicating and the doctor was very thorough in explaining things to/help to guide me. I felt confident that this clinic would be a good fit for me. It is nice to speak to a doctor that understand DOR and knows how to work with patients that have this. The clinic was fast to respond and receptive to my needs. I am hoping I will be able to move forward with them in the near future to go through a few rounds of egg freezing. I also felt like their rates were reasonable compared to other clinics.
