We just completed our 1st IVF stim cycle with Dr. Wood. Due to my high risk of OHSS, she wanted to be very careful with my medications. We went in to the office for monitoring 13 days out of my 15 day stim cycle. We did Gonal-F, Menopur and Cetratide. For the first 9 days of the cycle I did 75 units each of Gonal-F and Menopur. Towards the end, they upped the Gonal-F to 150 and added 1 dose of Cetratide. This was taken every night between 7-9pm. On the days of our monitoring visits, we would go in at 7:30am for bloodwork and ultrasound. Then around 4pm each day, we would dial into the voicemail system for the notice about our medications for the evening. Originally, the plan was for us to come in every other day, but as they saw some concerning things on the ultrasound, Dr. Wood increased the frequency of our visits and started doing our ultrasounds herself.

Dr. Wood worked with us directly and made it clear what we needed to do in order to achieve our goals. She did not mince words and was very straightforward about the risks and benefits of our situation. We left that appointment very confident.

Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Belkis)

Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine.
Clinic Strengths: - Really caring medical staff - Lots of communication - Doctors know what they are doing Clinic Weaknesses: - Financial team seems to try to find something new to charge you for every visit. However, if you keep copies of your receipts and contracts, you will be fine. Hold your own and be your own advocate and you will be fine. - If your appointment is at 7:30am, do not plan on being seen before 8:00am. It will not happen.

How was your experience with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Wood's has great knowledge base, as of matter of fact her nick name is the "encyclopedia ". She is up to date with the new studies. She also thinks outside the box which is so important in infertility treatment. She is also willing to try newer treatment options unlike some other physicians that would only do for example day 5 transfer. I would highly recommend her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Do your research and ask lots of questions. While you are going through infertility treatment, you need to be your own advocate

I felt she [Dr. Wood] was very optimistic when she suggested that at the age of 42 we should try: three attempts at timed intercourse with meds, one attempt at IUI and if no results, we try IVF. I think, we should have tried IVF from the start, since my AMH numbers were extremely low from the start. This would have saved us time and thousands of dollars...We had three attempts of timed intercourse with meds, one attempt at IUI and two attempts of IVF. The first attempt at IVF was canceled due to the medical staff not preparing me for retrieval on time (I ovulated) . On the second attempt at IVF, 4 ova were retrieved, two of which were fertilized and only one egg was transferred).

How was your experience with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
I was referred to Dr. Wood from a friend who had a successful first try at IVF. From our first consultation, I felt she was very optimistic when she suggested that at the age of 42 we should try: three attempts at timed intercourse with meds, one attempt at IUI and if no results, we try IVF. I think, we should have tried IVF from the start, since my AMH numbers were extremely low from the start. This would have saved us time and thousands of dollars.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Do your research before seeing any fertility doctor. When seeing Dr. Wood, ask many questions about how effective does her office staff communicate with patients. If something does not feel right, trust your gut and quickly get a second or even third opinion from another fertility doctor.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Would have preferred to have had better communication with the nurses and the doctor. When a couple is paying thousands of dollars for treatment, you want to work with clinic staff members who can answer all your questions without feeling as if you are a "bother" (or a number).
Describe the protocols Ellen Wood used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We had three attempts of timed intercourse with meds, one attempt at IUI and two attempts of IVF. The first attempt at IVF was canceled due to the medical staff not preparing me for retrieval on time (I ovulated) . On the second attempt at IVF, 4 ova were retrieved, two of which were fertilized and only one egg was transferred).
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At times, it felt that the nurses were overwhelmed treating so many patients. Most phone calls were returned at the end of the work day. If I asked for clarification, I would sometimes hear it in their voice how stressed out they were with my questions. In person, while at the clinic they did make the effort to answer my questions and give me support when needed.
Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine.
The office provides flexibility of working hours. I was able to get the appointment times I needed to do tests and procedures before going to work. They offer many office locations. They have Saturday hours and open on Sunday as needed. The wait time is reasonable. Communication among nurses and staff can be better.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine.
The hours for monitoring appointments were fine.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine.
IVF package treatment $16,000. IVF Meds/injections both attempts approximately ~$5,000 (~$10,000).
Describe Ellen Wood's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine.
This did not apply to me, since only one egg was transferred of two that were fertilized.

How was your experience with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
She took a different approach to medicine than all of the other physicians I had seen before her. she also confirmed that I was on the completely wrong treatment for what I was trying to accomplish, and the doctor who put me on it has been in the field for 30+ years (what a relief). She busted all of the myths I knew or heard. She was simply amazing. I just wish I had the money to move forward with treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Be prepared to be blown away. I was so happy I chose her as a second opinion. so many people I know have seen her or others in her practice and absolutely love her and so did I! Her knowledge and DO approach to medicine is what got me.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
She is so informative and knowledgeable. She took the time to answer all of my questions in all aspects. She listened very well. She made a lot of my fears go away. Even though she has never walked in my shoes, it felt like she had.
Describe the protocols Ellen Wood used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
She wanted to weigh out all options. Plenty of Testing! She also made sure I was aware of all of my options. what could happen or not happen. What could be wrong or not be wrong. We spoke in detail for a good length of time. She never rushed us out of her office. We have an amazing plan, but unfortunately for us the real issue is insurance and money. Dr. Wood has been a light for us through this almost 10 year journey. She is HIGHLY recommended. She got me answers I didn't even know I was looking for.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Amazing! No matter how many times I call, they always work me in when I need to get in, especially emergencies. Never give any attitude. it is like they have all walked in my shoes. They know how delicate this journey is and respect it.

Whatever they could not get covered under insurance. They went the extra mile to try and get it covered by insurance. They also were very flexible with other options and payment plans for procedures and testing.

How was your experience with Ellen Wood at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
I first saw Dr Wood while I was under the care of another doctor at another clinic who refused to do the specific testing I wanted. Dr Wood had been recommended to me by another of her patients I had "met" online. She did the testing and clearly explained the results. I had purchased a plan for 2 retrievals, 2 fresh transfers and up to 2 frozen transfers at another clinic so I returned to that doctor to utilize the treatments already paid for. That doctor refused to utilize the test results I received from Dr Wood, and the subsequent treatments all failed. I returned to Dr Wood for one last ER/ET before ending our journey. She met with my husband and I and we spoke at length about everything we had gone through and we worked out a plan together. We agreed to spend 3 months recovering from prior treatment and preparing my body with specific supplements and vitamins as well as regular exercise and stress reduction. The staff at the clinic was always professional and kind with no drama! Dr Wood's head nurse was amazing and made sure I always had everything I needed to make the cycle run smoothly. Throughout the stimming and monitoring, I seemed to have a lower response to the meds than I had during my previous 4 stim cycles, but Dr Wood assured me- all was good. At the retrieval we got 12 eggs and she did a 6 day transfer to make sure that she was able to be there. I had 2 excellent blasts and 1 poor quality blast. She recommended we transfer the 2 excellent ones. A little less than two weeks later, we got our positive beta and everything went perfectly from there. Dr Wood continued to monitor my pregnancy through 8 weeks and did some specialized blood work through 12 weeks. The following June, we welcomed our miracle babies. Those 2 excellent blasts turned into our twins. Dr Woods was the perfect mix of caring and down to business. I could not recommend her and her clinic more.

She [Dr. Ellen Wood] was outstanding. She supplied me with facts and statistics when discussing our plan. She showed compassion and support. We had a successful first round of IUI which unfortunately led to a late miscarriage at 21 weeks. When we returned to the clinic she was understanding and very thorough and performed a whole slew of additional testing before we began another cycle to ensure medically everything was ok. When we did our second round of IUI we actually had 3 eggs fertilize and with her her support and monitoring we made it to 10 weeks before we lost 1 sac. She really was beyond words outstanding when we had that ultrasound and just all around positive experience.
