We used Letrozole with timed intercourse followed by progesterone supplementation [with Dr. Ginsburg]...She was very excited for our success and answered all questions thoroughly...Extremely knowledgeable with regard to the latest research. Answered all questions thoroughly and knew what gaps to fill in on our testing before starting treatment... I had a blighted ovum with my first pregnancy and have PCOS. I am now 15 weeks pregnant from our first cycle on that protocol.
[The nurses at Brigham & Women's Hospital were] Extremely knowledgeable and very quickly responsive!...the nurses not specifying the draw or catching the result as an incorrect one resulted in me going to get a varicella booster that delayed my treatment cycle by a month. I discovered the error a couple of days after the shot through my own research. I didn’t feel that the clinic was especially apologetic or owned up to this mistake and their role in it.

Describe your experience with Brigham & Women's Hospital.
I did have one snafu despite very compassionate care... my lab request for varicella titer did not specify which type of draw; written by a nurse and stamped with doctors signature. The lab made a mistake in just choosing which one to draw (one for active infection and not immunity, which I likely have after having chicken pox as a child.) The lab I had my blood drawn at had a big role, but the nurses not specifying the draw or catching the result as an incorrect one resulted in me going to get a varicella booster that delayed my treatment cycle by a month. I discovered the error a couple of days after the shot through my own research. I didn’t feel that the clinic was especially apologetic or owned up to this mistake and their role in it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Ginsburg at Brigham & Women's Hospital.
Minimal on Letrozole cycle... two ultrasounds, consult, follow up, and meds.

The office staff [Brigham] are somewhat less helpful and considerate than the nursing staff and the doctors. However, they have been very thorough and organized with our care.

Dr. Ginsburg was straight forward and warm without giving a false sense of hope. She will listen to all of your concerns and explain things completely. She is incredibly smart and diligent. She will help you push forward until you get your miracle baby!... I did a single transfer which failed so she allowed me to do a double transfer the next time around (also failed).... This clinic [Brigham & Women's Hospital] is caring, thoughtful, straight forward, organized, and well staffed. They truely care about you, you are not just a number or a statistic.
