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.

Describe the protocols Erica Wang used in your cycles at Cedars-Sinai 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 [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.

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.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erica Wang at Cedars-Sinai?
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.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erica Wang at Cedars-Sinai?
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 the protocols Erica Wang used in your cycles at Cedars-Sinai and their degree of success.
First cycle was a natural IUI cycle. The second was a clomid and IUI cycle and the third was also clomid and IUI
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Very friendly but the lack of communication around protocol for my treatments almost lead to problems multiple times.
Describe your experience with Cedars-Sinai.
It's a normal office at Cedars Sinai
Describe the costs associated with your care under Erica Wang at Cedars-Sinai.
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.
