With doctor Soto he immediately knew that my case shouldn’t have been this hard and, ran some more tests and made a proper transfer cycle for me. The first try with doctor Soto was a success...Doctor Soto showed care, compassion, I never ever felt like I am bothering him with anything....
This clinic [IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] was so highly organized I never had to follow up on anything and everything was automatic...They would always call to check up on me after every procedure, medicine was always ordered and delivered immediately. When I had a problem at night, the on call service was so extremely helpful...
How was your experience with Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Doctor Soto is honestly the most amazing doctor I have ever had. After being in care of another physician about a year and a half ago at 27 years old, perfectly healthy with unexplained infertility I finally felt like I am In great hands. With my previous doctor my transfers kept on failing and I had to keep pushing new ideas on her with her refusing to take any innovative steps. With doctor Soto he immediately knew that my case shouldn’t have been this hard and, ran some more tests and made a proper transfer cycle for me. The first try with doctor Soto was a success after my four PGS normal embryos that were wasted in failed transfers at the previous colic and I am currently 14 weeks pregnant. His abilities are absolutely incredible and after my previous care I realized that I should never settle. Doctor Soto showed care, compassion, I never ever felt like I am bothering him with anything and was a true angel. I am so eternally grateful and my biggest regret is that I didn’t find him sooner. Thank you for my miracle baby!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Doctor Soto heard every concern of mine without pushing agendas or making me feel like I was bothering him in any way which was completely different to my previous experience with another doctor.
Describe the protocols Enrique Soto used in your cycles at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I’ve had three failed transfers at my previous clinic. One was a medicated transfer which failed and I knew it was wrong for my body to my reaction since second attempt failed due to breakthrough bleeding. I then had to advocate for natural transfer which resulted in a miscarriage. Afterwards I did I again with two PGS normal embryos and it was negative. Then finally I switched and went to doctor Soto and he agreed natural cycle is the way to go, I was put on letrozole and we monitored ovulation and after my trigger shot we transferred after 7 days. My previous clinic did it after 6 which clearly was wrong. I also was tested for estrogen levels after the transfer which were e tre my low and I never was tested for that at the previous clinic as I was told it’s not necessary since it’s a natural transfer. I started with estrogen patches and pills and continued my progesterone suppositories.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Jessica Hernandez)

he [Dr. Soto] never ask any of the personal questions that other fertility drs take the time to ask. We totally felt rushed through...the dr failed to review and follow with bloodwork for my TSH, resulted in being over medicated and no one ordered any test until I requested after my 2nd IUI cycle...He didn’t change my protocol even though I asked the nurse since first cycle didn’t work....
Nurse Jessica [at IVFMD Miami] was kind in general, replies to your emails in a timely manner with some exemption that it took a week; also felt she was in a rush and sometimes felt bothered for me asking questions, 2nd IUI I asked for a change in medication or days administered to ask my dr, she advised to maintain same protocol. Once again be your own advocate....
How was your experience with Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Soto was a kind and polite doctor. We’ve been on the Infertility route for 7+ years so I’ve learned on the subject throughout the years. I’m very familiar with procedures, medication and options. He explained what treatment will be done in the near future. But he doesn’t ask many questions of you or your partner medical history. He rushed through a bit of our medical history, gave me a prescription for thyroid medication and went on to ultrasound where he found my fibroids;I totally forgot to mentioned and was never ask if had any type of polyps or fibroids, he never ask any of the personal questions that other fertility drs take the time to ask. We totally felt rushed through. Our initial consultation only last 15 minutes. I was shocked. Then my 2nd and last time I saw him was my follow up after all testing. Same impression quick visit and him surprised I could understand everything easily. He thought within a matter of 2 IUI I will be pregnant not the case. He failed to follow up my thyroid medication during my IUI cycles and I was over medicated, my TSH Levels were nonexistent when I requested being checked again for them to lower my medication. I won’t be going back to this dr again. Only reason I stayed there because insurance paid for bloodwork and initial visit. I learned I rather paid all out of pocket.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Have a list of questions, don’t expect him asking a lot of detail questions. Make sure to ask what baseline blood tests will they be do doing. Don’t asume like I did with my thyroid medication. As much as you can ASK Questions.

I was kindly treated while under their care, but feel the appointment were rush through.

On our 1st IUI cycle we used Letrozole 5mg CD3-7 and Trigger shot Ovidrel 250. 2nd IUI Letrozole 5mg CD3-7 and Trigger shot Ovidrel 250. He didn’t change my protocol even though I asked the nurse since first cycle didn’t work.

Describe your experience with IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Overall front desk department is good, everyone is very polite and attentive too. Only thing when making your initial appointment make sure to ask if your dr is going on vacation. When I called they booked my appointment never mentioned that after my initial consultation my dr was leaving for a whole month and half. They wanted me to wait 2 whole months to start testing and then my treatments. Anybody who has been on this road waiting is the least you want. All my initial testing were done by another dr in the meantime he came back from vacation.

Dr. Soto has a great bedside manner and is very kind. He provides a lot of detailed information and always allows room for questions and concerns.... He had my husband go see a fertility urologist because our need to do IVF is male factor infertility. He gave us suggestions and advice for increasing my husbands sperm count and for me to increase my egg count and quality....I wasn't made aware of my low egg count until very recently and I have been seeing Dr. Soto for all the initial prep work and procedures for IVF since October.
The entire office staff at IVFMD are so kind, patient, and friendly. Dr. Soto took his time with my husband and I during each appointment, answered all our questions, and provided tons of information in a very kind and calm manner. I truly felt as though he was looking at our case individually and not as another appointment on his schedule.... Very nice clinic facilities, on the higher end with a nice and welcoming waiting room. All office staff are very kind and informative. The only negative is that they usually are running late and I've waited anywhere between 1-2 hours past my appointment time just to be taken in.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I wasn't made aware of my low egg count until very recently and I have been seeing Dr. Soto for all the initial prep work and procedures for IVF since October. He just informed me of my low egg count in March and let me know I should lose some weight and to take 2 months to do that (we were planning on starting in March). I was upset he hadn't mentioned any of this at any prior appointments. According to him, the issue was only my husband and I was good to go. Now we are delayed 2 more months so I can get as healthy as can be and make my eggs the best quality.

He [Dr. Enrique Soto] worked along with my doctor home, so between them they set the best protocol based on my low AMH and endometriosis. I was put on Menopur injections at 75iu once a day and then given a trigger shot 12 hours before first IUI (I had a double IUI). Dr Soto agreed that only 3 IUIs should be done before moving on to IVF so we all agree if this cycle is not successful that’s what will get done.
It [IVF MD SFL- Miami] is usually a very busy clinic so expect to have to wait for a while unless coming in for a simple consultation. They are well-organized and most of the staff is very friendly and helpful. Also the waiting room is very private in a way that’s hard to explain but makes it easier and less awkward when you may not want to speak to other patients which being such a socially awkward person I enjoy
How was your experience with Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He was very gentle but informative. He has excellent bedside manner. Only downside was that he didn’t perform the actual IUI and I did not get to see him before or after. I thought that was a bit strange.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Enrique Soto at IVFMD South Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?

So in total I paid $3,014.00 for one IUI cycle.
