Dr. Wang is a sharp doctor who very quickly was able to distill my history and provide recommendations on how to move forward (and included the reasons why she recommended each course of action)...Weaknesses - took some time to get an appointment...We discussed next step strategies that included a hysteroscopy to check for any adhesions or scars and doing an ERA because we had two failed PGS tested embryo transfers. Dr. Wang was good at drawing a distinction between what to do after the hysteroscopy and ERA depending on what each showed. She therefore gave multiple strategy ideas based on how things played out.
The financials are a little obscure [at Cedars-Sinai]. They will give you a packet describing some out of pocket costs if you don’t have fertility coverage through insurance but I’m not sure who one would contact for more specific questions. It didn’t have the same feel as the private clinics in terms of the hand holding through the ins and outs of the process and the billing...I was not quoted any costs at the time of my consultation...Weaknesses - took some time to get an appointment because there are only two doctors running the clinic at Cedars.

How was your experience with Erica Wang at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center?
Strengths - sharp, experienced, explained the why behind different courses of action. Weaknesses - took some time to get an appointment because there are only two doctors running the clinic at Cedars. The financials are a little obscure.

Erica Wang is conservative in treatment, your overall health is of utmost importance, she is optimistic and gives hope even when dealing with the difficult topic of infertility. She is very clear in her explanations and why certain treatments are being chosen over others, she values your voice in discussing overall treatment plan and care.... First 2 IUIs was with letrozole , with letrozole being chosen because it showed more success with PCOS. Next 7 IUIs was with clomid because my body responded better to the Clomid. Next was an egg retrieval cycle that would be a frozen embryo transfer after genetic testing.
The entire staff [Cedars-Sinai] is knowledgeable and familiar with the most current/ up to date infertility treatments. They are open and honest from the beginning that this is a journey that will take time. During failures and loss, they hold your hand and continue to stay positive and give you hope. They answer all questions no matter how crazy.... Nursing staff was amazing, many had gone through fertility treatments as well so have their personal stories of success and failure

Describe the protocols Erica Wang used in your cycles at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center and their degree of success.
First 2 IUIs was with letrozole , with letrozole being chosen because it showed more success with PCOS. Next 7 IUIs was with clomid because my body responded better to the Clomid. Next was an egg retrieval cycle that would be a frozen embryo transfer after genetic testing. Started with Estrace prior to cycle day one, then ultrasound on cycle day 2 and started injections that night. The injection protocol was 2 injections the first few nights, then added another to ward off ovulation, then trigger shot prior to egg retrieval. Unfortunately the egg retrieval did not produce embryos for transfer.

She's [Dr Wang] very nice but not everything was tested and she accidentally did an insemination during a cycle where I ovulated 5 follicles and I had to pay for the ultrasound to figure out that they messed that one up. She also still thought I could get pregnant that cycle when my estrogen was crashing. She never prescribed estrogen to thicken my lining and never did ultrasounds the day of IUI.
The lack of communication [at Cedars-Sinai] lead to problems and the billing is impossible. I spent hours unscrambling problems....Pay closer attention and get out of Cedars. The staff are terrible and the billing is problematic for a patient base that is by and large cash.

The doctor herself treated me like a human but the office staff were terrible. Every single step of the way we had billing issues, couldn't get calls back, etc

Describe your experience with Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center.
It's a normal office at Cedars Sinai
Describe the costs associated with your care under Erica Wang at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center.
Inconsistant. They depended upon the length of the appointment and the questions asked, not the service provided. An ultrasound didn't have a cost, it had a range. I was never sure what to expect. Also I was a cash patient and every time I paid in cash, something got confused with the office. Then something else got confused with the hospital and I would get bills for thousands of dollars that were 1) inaccurate and 2) based on appointments that were already paid for.
What specific things went wrong at Cedars-Sinai Fertility and Reproductive Medicine Center?
  • Lost appointments
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information

She [Dr. Wang] treated me af a person and tried to address my strange and difficult case...She was patient in answering all my questions however in my situation there are things no one can explain. She wanted to jump into IVF, but I still wanted to try naturally since the odds were still in my favor... I needed 2 dncs for that pregnancy and now may have scar tissue. I have a hysteroscopy scheduled July 19th to check. The strange thing is the genetics tests came back normal for both my partner and myself. It's a situation no one can explain.
They [staff at Cedars-Sinai] are very knowledgeable and lay options out clearly. Clean facility with kind staff. Front desk is very kind. They tested me like a person not a statistic...Vaginal progesterone with sex, saline ultra sound, hysteroscopy with possible scar tissue removal, genetics testing, sperm analysis and clomid...She [Dr. Wang] treated me af a person and tried to address my strange and difficult case...She was patient in answering all my questions however in my situation there are things no one can explain.
