Haven’t talked to Erik Mazur that much. I mostly talk to the nurses. I think I’ve mostly just talk to him on the phone. The phone calls we’ve had are great. He’s was very nice and understanding. I just wish I had more meetings with him...he suggested that I do IVF but I wanted to do IUI first. He started me on Clomid and went I went to my ultrasound appointment I responded too well to the medication and they also cancel my IUI session without consulting me.
I’ve been with the [Seattle Reproductive Medicine] clinic for a very small time so I would just say be on it with the portal and know that you’re not gonna get a whole lot of time with the doctor. The nurses do respond pretty fast through the portal and they do a very good job of explaining what the procedure is and what’s gonna happen.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Be prepared to send a lot of email through the portal
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
I think I felt like I was treated more like a number than a person because I never got a lot of one on one time with my doctor. I dealt with most of the nursing staff and I felt like they were the ones more running the show. Not that I think nurses aren’t capable but it would be nice to be able to have that one on one with my doctor. Also, in the past I’ve had problem with polyps on my uterus and you would think before starting IUI that they would do an ultrasound to make sure that I don’t have one on my uterus but that never happened. So of course the day I go in to check to see if I’m ovulating they find a polyp and my IUI gets canceled. One more thing that I didn’t like was my partner Has never been in the clinic and I just want him to feel like he’s part of this. I know because of Covid out of the clinics power.
Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I’m probably not gonna be the best person for this because I have a bad memory. Basically we did a ton of testing and found out it was an unexplained fertility. So he suggested that I do IVF but I wanted to do IUI first. He started me on Clomid and went I went to my ultrasound appointment I responded too well to the medication and they also cancel my IUI session without consulting me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
For the most part the nursing staff is awesome and very kind. I just wish we would have more phone calls than using the portal

Dr. Mazur performed my surgery first to remove uterine polyps and address my uterine septum to ensure if we were successful with transfer that our embryo had the best chance. Because we chose to do PGTA testing, we needed to do a FET cycle. He had me do Gonal F and Menopur for retrieval and to prevent OHSS as well as because we were doing FET, he had me do Lupron as my trigger shot prior to retrieval....
The clinic [Seattle Reproductive Medicine] was clean and professional. The front desk was courteous and the surgery schedulers were amazing and organized. We had to go to both the Tacoma clinic for our primary care as well as the Seattle location for my egg retrieval as well as our transfer. Each experience was better than expected and calming in what can be a very stressful dynamic...
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur was great to work with. I was apprehensive on switching clinics (from ORM), but Dr.Mazur exceeded our expectations. He was thorough in his plan with us, found that I had a uterine septum which he encouraged us to address and he performed my surgery prior to our egg retrieval. He was transparent, informative but ultimately was understanding as to what we wanted and felt comfortable with.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Remain open and honest. Dr. Mazur is knowledgeable and will do his best to ensure your safety, end result desired and remain open in what he feels could help.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur took time to listen and explain things to my husband and I. We had been trying for many years, yet Dr. Mazur remained optimistic while being realistic.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
We were extremely blessed as we had some coverage from my health care plan from work. But as we chose to do PGTA as well as my surgery, medications, etc, I would say it was on the ballpark between $5k-$10k
Describe Erik Mazur's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
We chose to do PGTA, and ultimately had one healthy embryo that passed testing. Because of the extra testing, protocol is to transfer only one which we understand for safety purposes.

Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We did a few rounds of medications with IUI attempting to have our own genetic child. We did end up using a donor egg with my husbands sperm because I have low egg count and he has low sperm count. We have had great success.
Describe your experience with Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
They’re great at getting appointments scheduled and having you seen in a timely manner. Everyone I’ve worked with in the office has been nice and provides a positive vibe. I will say the first go around was better because it was pre-pandemic. This go around my husband has only been able to go to 1 appointment with me. Not the clinic’s fault though.

Not good communication from the fertility clinic [from nurses at Seattle Reproductive Medicine] leading to frustration on several occasions...Not organized. Not much emotional support.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Mazur is kind, respectful and cares about his patients. He has been wonderful to work with and honors my wishes in terms of treatment...We have tried 4 IUI total - 2 with and 2 without Clomid, We fall in the mild male factor unexplained infertility camps...No pregnancies have resulted from treatment yet...He has worked with me over time to tweak and change my protocol as we know more...We have discussed IVF as a potential moving forward, but we are going to try 6 IUIs before doing so.
the nursing staff [of Seattle Reproductive Medicine] has been excellent. They respond quickly to my inquiries, are patient, supportive and helpful...They are knowledgeable and require that patients are fully educated on their treatment plans and procedures...One challenge is not having evening hours available for appointments or treatments, however they do have weekend visits for take sensitive treatment...IUIs are about 725 per cycle. Ultrasound was about 92 per visit.
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur is kind, respectful and cares about his patients. He has been wonderful to work with and honors my wishes in terms of treatment. He has worked with me over time to tweak and change my protocol as we know more. I appreciate him and his team.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
He is not someone who will push you into one treatment or another, which I have greatly appreciated. If you are looking for someone who will tell you what to do next, he will likely not make that call for you. Be sure you know what you want and what you are willing to do.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur has always been forthright, kind and respectful. I have always felt confident that we are in good hands with him.
Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We have tried 4 IUI total - 2 with and 2 without Clomid, as well as Clomid and timed intercourse. No pregnancies have resulted from treatment yet. We fall in the mild male factor unexplained infertility camps, so this seemed like a reasonable treatment path. We have discussed IVF as a potential moving forward, but we are going to try 6 IUIs before doing so. He explained that the average success rate for couples doing IUI is 3, and he wants us to have the least invasive pathway to pregnancy. Additionally, IVF is cost prohibitive for us and he is being respectful of what is available to us.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: LaTanya )
Overall, the nursing staff has been excellent. They respond quickly to my inquiries, are patient, supportive and helpful.
Describe your experience with Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
This clinic has many strengths. The staff is kind, caring and passionate about what they do.

IUIs are about 725 per cycle. Ultrasound was about 92 per visit.
Describe Erik Mazur's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
He required FD ultrasounds at least 3 times to make sure my body was consistently responding to Clomid. He and his team always made sure I was comfortable with 2 eggs, and wanted to make sure there were not more than 2. He did not want 3 eggs and shared that they are really aiming for 1 implanted egg.

Dr. Mazur went over all my lab results I've already had went over all my previous treatments and all my health issues and came up with that I needed injectables since pills weren't working...He had great bed side manner answered all my questions...[new patient advice] have all your medical records with you and everything you've already tried so you guys can skip over those and move on to things that are actually going to get you in the right direction
[nurse of Seattle Reproductive Medicine] she always answered any of my questions provided me with some syringes when the pharmacy forgot...they tried to work me into the schedule around my work schedule as much as they could...[clinic error]I had to skip a cycle because they couldn't get me in for my beginning appointment...[iui's]are about $600 monitoring ultrasounds for like a hundred twenty five. IVF is close to like 20 grand.
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
He's so kind wasn't rushed. I felt like I could ask anything and that I had hope. When we first arrived I had some serious doubts because every other appointment I've had with any other doctor done nothing but cry cuz they made me feel worthless. But Dr mazur went over all my lab results I've already had went over all my previous treatments and all my health issues and came up with that I needed injectables since pills weren't working.

He was so kind and it was one of the first appointments I've been to about infertility that I did ball my eyes out. He had great bed side manner answered all my questions hands down an excellent doc
Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started on menopur injections 75 IU starting on a believe day 3 I would come in for monitoring every so often we did a total of twelve days of injections before I produced three eggs then l did the ovidrel trigger shot 36 hours before my IUI and on day 3 after the IUI we started progesterone suppositories for 14 days until a negative pregnancy test or you would continue on the progesterone until 10 weeks pregnant I never got that far all my tests were negative
Describe your experience with your nurse at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
I don't remember her name but she was great she always answered any of my questions provided me with some syringes when the pharmacy forgot they tried to work me into the schedule around my work schedule as much as they could overall great nurse very helpful
Describe your experience with Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
So you have to call on your first day of your period So you can come in on your third dayjust start stuff for that cycle I found a lot of time I called my first day of my cycle and they wouldn't have any available appointments for the third day which doesn't make any sense because that's your protocol you should at least work people in if you're going to make them come in on your third day. IVF here is near $20,000 where at some other clinics it's only 4,000 who can afford $20,000 for IVF and that doesn't even include medication. there is literally no need for IVF to be that expensive even the clinics that run a cheap ivf say there's no need for it to cost that much you're literally pricing people out of being able to have a kid and that's just wrong. so you literally can't afford IVF if you're not rich or you don't plan on refinancing your house. Very very sad

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur took the time during our very first meeting to get to know us and wanted to know our full fertility story and he we got to be in his office. Then, when we came up with a plan, he made sure we understood and had many diagrams so that everything made sense to us. He walked us through all the steps, made us aware of all possibilities, and makes sure he explains every item possible.

Describe Erik Mazur's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
This was one of the first questions we had with the fear of becoming octo-mom and he recommended, based on our young age, that we only transfer one embryo since the statistics show that IVF with one embryo poses less risks.

Dr Mazur, was great to work with! He took the time needed to answer all of our questions and made sure we were comfortable with the process...[he] was accommodating and update on how he prescribed medication. I asked if I could avoid needles and he had zero issues with it...we only talked about transferring one [embryo]
[the SRM nurses] communicated in a timely fashion and were happy to answer any questions I had along the way...We paid around $30,000 for treatment...They seem like a large practice but are able to focus on each patient in a kind and caring manner. My experience was great and I highly recommend SRM! I feel fortunate that SRM was able to help grow our family.
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?

Dr. Mazur is an excellent doctor. He explains things very clearly and has compassion for his patients. I appreciated he had reviewed my background and acknowledged where I was in the journey/process...we should no longer waste money on injections and IUIs and begin to save for IVF. We were given the option to try Clomid because it was cheap. We decided to do that. The first cycle I responded; however had unclear OPKs. The next cycle I advocated to try a trigger injection with the clomid and we had success.

How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur is an excellent doctor. He explains things very clearly and has compassion for his patients. I appreciated he had reviewed my background and acknowledged where I was in the journey/process. He made me believe that we could get pregnant - even after several failed treatment cycles with another doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Do not hesitate to ask questions!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
SRM did not approach my case from an individualized stance but rather another number/patient. Very little testing was done and no discussion of supplements were ever had. Often times, I had to advocate for my care/treatment.
Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Prior to seeing Dr. Mazur, I had two failed medicated and injectable timed intercourse cycles and three failed medicated and injectable IUI cycles. The precious doctor kept doing all the same things in each cycle and we felt like we needed to change the approach if we wanted different results. During Covid, I did my own work with nutrition and suppliments to restore normal cycles. We went to Dr. Mazur for a second opinion and he instilled confidence that I would be able to get pregnant naturally. However, we should no longer waste money on injections and IUIs and begin to save for IVF. We were given the option to try Clomid because it was cheap. We decided to do that. The first cycle I responded; however had unclear OPKs. The next cycle I advocated to try a trigger injection with the clomid and we had success.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Kristy)
Kristy kept in constant communication with me through the portal. (My previous SRM nurses would take days to respond to questions and Kristy was very on top of it, usually responding within a hour or two).

What specific things went wrong at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
SRM failed to perform basic diagnostic testing (such as HSG) prior to treatment. I was dismissed when I asked about getting one performed to a nurse with previous doctor at SRM. I advocated with my own OB/GYN to have this done before continuing treatments with SRM and another provider.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Mazur is amazing! He’s honest and forthcoming with information. ... He takes time to listen and explain everything. He shows compassion and excellent care towards me and my husband. He was great at explaining treatment and the steps involved with our treatment plan. ... I always felt like I was his only patient because he listened and cared about us and our treatment. I never felt rushed when meeting with him
I have been extremely happy with the clinic [SRM]! The one and only thing I wish was different was the hours they have available for monitoring. For most people with jobs it’s sometimes tricky to get an early appointment. They open at 8am and most 8am appointments are full. Maybe having hours for monitoring start at 7am would be more helpful. ... I cannot say enough great things about her [nurse] and the entire team that dealt with our treatment.

Dr Mazur first performed my HSG and confirmed the semen analysis results for my spouse. Since all was WNL, he continued me on Clomid medication and performed an ultrasound to confirm follicular development. ... I absolutely agree that he is a fabulous doctor. He was very informative whilst having phenomenal bedside manner ... He facilitated my HSG and recommended the IUI procedure.
The clinic [SRM] utilizes a patient portal and they are extremely prompt about responding and communicating via the portal. I felt very in-touch with my caregivers there. I felt like their cost for IUI was very reasonable/average at $650 however their fees for IVF are extremely high, rendering us unable to continue with next phase of treatment
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Mazur was recommended to us by my obgyn and I absolutely agree that he is a fabulous doctor. He facilitated my HSG and recommended the IUI procedure. He was very informative whilst having phenomenal bedside manner

Dr Mazur first performed my HSG and confirmed the semen analysis results for my spouse. Since all was WNL, he continued me on Clomid medication and performed an ultrasound to confirm follicular development. Since I had multiple viable follicles, he recommended we attempt an IUI. Unfortunately, that was unsuccessful

Describe the costs associated with your care under Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
Diagnostics (like lab work and ultrasounds) were covered by my insurance. The HSG miraculously was also considered diagnostic therefore a covered benefit. IUI was reasonably priced at $650. Their cost for IVF is extremely high—I was quoted between 16-19k and that is not including additional embryo transfers if the first attempt is unsuccessful, nor does it cover the cost of monthly storage for cryogenic freezing.

How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur demonstrated genuine empathy for our struggle to conceive, and once we had our diagnosis, he took a full hour to explain my condition and the IVF process.

Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.

My protocol was: 10 days of controlled ovarian stimulation (225 Gonal F + 150 Menopur), Lupron trigger shot, and ICSI after retrieval. We retrieved 14 eggs, 12 were mature, 7 fertilized (a low fertilization number likely related to my chromosomal condition called Balanced Translocation). Of the 7 embryos, 2 survived until day 5 and one of those embryos was found to be genetically (PGS) normal. We are transferring this embryo soon.

we did a lupron trigger [with Dr. Mazur] to help decrease the chance of developing OHSS. We did a freeze all cycle...recommended that we transfer one embryo, but left the decision up to us if we wanted to transfer 2...had such a good bedside manner and was so empathetic towards us every step of the way. He really made us feel like we were in the right hands. He definitely makes you feel human...He never made me feel pressured into anything that I wasn't comfortable with. He fully explained each process of whatever treatment we were trying. After my successful embryo transfer he was there to answer questions or see me if I have any concerns. Dr. Mazur is nothing short of amazing.
The clinic [Seattle Reproductive Medicine] overall was good. There needs to be an understanding that your Dr. may not be the one to do IUI, or the actual IVF procedures as they are done at the Seattle location. I enjoyed my encounters with all the staff...She [nurse] always made sure we had a proper understanding of our treatment plan. She was prompt at returning calls and answering any questions.

Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I don't remember the exact protocol or dosage. I did gonal f injections and menopur. We then added in cetrotide injections to keep me from ovulating. I did a lupron trigger before our retrieval. I know we did a lupron trigger to help decrease the chance of developing OHSS. We did a freeze all cycle. We waited a month before doing a frozen transfer. Before the transfer I started PIO injections once daily and endometrin suppositories 2 times a day.

I felt a little bit like he [Dr. Erik Mazur] didn't really see a puzzle to be solved...just saw a previous diagnosis and my weight and sort of wrote me off...was pretty insistent that there was no way I had endo since I didn't fit the normal history for it. Turns out I do. Stage 4 even...wasn't bad as a doctor...But if you're not willing or able to advocate for yourself you might not find any real solutions or answers here.

How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
I felt a little bit like he didn't really see a puzzle to be solved. He just saw a previous diagnosis and my weight and sort of wrote me off. It took a while of me pushing the idea that something was wrong to get him to refer me to a gyn surgeon for a laparoscopic surgery to rule out endometriosis. He was pretty insistent that there was no way I had endo since I didn't fit the normal history for it. Turns out I do. Stage 4 even. So, you know, not a mild case. He wasn't bad as a doctor. He knows the area, keeps up on the literature, all the stuff you want from a doctor. But if you're not willing or able to advocate for yourself you might not find any real solutions or answers here.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Be ready to stand up for yourself. Ask questions and make sure you are fully comfortable with the treatment plan.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
I honestly didn't see him much, which was fine nothing we were doing was particularly invasive and didn't need him to be very hands on. He was a nice enough guy when I did meet with him. His staff was good though.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Anna)
The nurses, lab techs, ultrasound techs, and PAs were all phenomenal. They were kind and compassionate as well as knowledgeable. They also had no problem asking a doctor if they felt they didn't have a good answer or if I was confused by their answers. Overall a stellar team.
Describe your experience with Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
I absolutely loved their communication system. Because like all millennials I hate answering the phone, so a message system in their patient portal was ideal. The clinic is very concerned with making sure you have all the information you could want so they have people who will happily answer any question you have. They do have a financial counselor. I never utilized them so I don't know any specifics of cost and payments, but having one means that they have a way to answer any concerns you might have. They're also very LGBT friendly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine.
Everything I had done was covered by insurance. I know that there were discounts for military families, but we moved before we could utilize any of them.

Doctor Mazur I felt had my best interest at heart. He heard what I said and took my seriously. He started treatment right away and was very gentle with me. I wish I saw him more when it came to ultrasounds that’s the only down fall I have...he's going to start treatment as soon as possible. He doesn't waste time...Pcos was my main reason of infertility. He started me on a pill to get me to ovulate with letrozole. Then the trigger shot if follicles were big enough following iui

I have PCOS and a high AMH ... Dr. Mazur is great at balancing being honest with me as a patient, while also being gentle and caring in his choice of words. He also always remains confident and optimistic along this tough and disappointing journey. ... he quickly made a new plan with changes to the dosages of medication ... He is always willing to help us save money when other possible options are available.
Overall, Seattle Reproductive Medicine Tacoma is the most challenging fertility clinic I have worked with. They don’t have convenient appointment times for working women (the earliest morning appointment isn’t until 8:30am), they are quite expensive compared to other fertility clinics in the area and their “IVF packages” come with a lot of extra hidden fees they don’t tell you about until the end when you receive a bill, and I only get to see or talk to my assigned doctor and nurse minimally.
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Mazur is kind, gentle, and always remains positive and hopeful and has encouraged my husband and I to remain positive in our journey. Although our first round of IVF was cancelled due to poor response, which neither Dr. Mazur or myself expected (honestly, it wasn’t even thought of as a possibility we talked about), he quickly made a new plan with changes to the dosages of medication. He is also great at taking time to fully explain any risks or concerns involved throughout the process and always makes sure to plan ahead for any potential risks that may come up. Though we haven’t achieved pregnancy yet, I have enjoyed working with Dr. Mazur and highly recommend him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Seattle Reproductive Medicine?
Feel free to be open and honest with him about your thoughts, questions, and feelings. He is a great support system.

Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Seattle Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
After two failed IUIs at a different fertility clinic, I came to Dr. Mazur ready to do my first round of IVF. Since I have PCOS and a high AMH, Dr. Mazur made a plan to start with a low dose of Gonal F and Menopur since my risk of OHSS was high. Unfortunately, not all of our surprise, my body didn’t respond after 13 days of stims and so he made the choice to cancel my IVF cycle before we even made it to egg retrieval. He then made a plan to try a more aggressive rounds of IVF meds, but my husband and I were unable to afford another round, so he allowed us to try Letrozole for two cycles with timed intercourse. My body failed to respond to those as well. Now, Dr. Mazur is having us try an IUI using Menopur injectables. He is always willing to help us save money when other possible options are available.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Seattle Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Anna Lanza)
My nurse, Anna, is awesome! She is compassionate and always willing to help with any questions I have. However, she is only in the office 3 day’s a week, which means I usually end up talking to other nurses instead of her, which makes communication a bit difficult.

During our consultation with the doctor he [Dr. Mazur] was very nice, informative, and professional. I have seen him once after that to talk about possible IVF after six cycles of not getting pregnant because I am not producing enough eggs for my age....Very nice guy who explained everything to us that we wanted and was very professional.... The nurses are more available than he is unless you make an appointment with him. Although, I never contacted him myself.
I like how the Tacoma office [Seattle Repro Med] is nearby. One weakness is they are closed during the weekend and you have to drive to Seattle for a procedure on the weekends. The scheduling staff usually get back to you fast which is nice.... I feel some nurses are better than others when doing the IUI. Some were painful and some others weren’t.... Whenever I had questions I would message them on the online program and they would get back to me fast.

If I have a mature egg, I took ovidrell injection before the IUI. I feel some nurses are better than others when doing the IUI. Some were painful and some others weren’t.

He [Dr . Erik Mazur] met with me and reviewed my history and discussed options. He personally did two of my ultrasounds as well as my HSG. He has always been very positive and was careful not to compare me to others or statistics.... I was diagnosed with PCOS, I was put on provera to induce my period. Then I was prescribed femara and monitored with a mid cycle ultrasound. I was also prescribed ovidrel as a trigger and instructed on when to take It. My first cycle a HSG was completed. I am currently on my third cycle, while all cycles have produced good lining and follicles, no resulting pregnancy has occurred. Dr. Mazur has scheduled to meet with me to discuss next steps of this cycle results in a negative pregnancy test.
They [the staff at SRM-Tacoma] are all very nice and the check in process and all other processes (getting blood, getting results, checking out/payment) have been easy. Having access to a online portal is very helpful. A lot of things were set up on my first visit so I felt accomplished....

The day I was supposed to trigger ovulation, my estrogen level dropped dramatically, which Dr Mazur said could be an indication of poor egg quality. We talked through our options, and Dr Mazur gave us the choice of cancelling the cycle, or continuing anyway. He didn't pressure us either way, but he did say that he felt we could do better by changing up a few things - we decided to cancel the cycle and start over. Before our 2nd cycle Dr Mazur prescribed DHEA and CoQ10 for a month. We skipped the birth control and started the stim meds straight away on day 2 of my cycle. We kept the protocol the same,
Dr Mazur's medical assistant, Ashley, and nurse, Amanda are kind and compassionate. They always respond to phone calls and text messages promptly, and are always on top of prescription requests, appointment and surgery scheduling and the communication of test results...Our IUIs and the IVF procedures were covered under my insurance. Other than coinsurance and co-pays, our out of pocket costs were around $5000 for the PGS testing which wasn't covered by insurance.
How was your experience with Erik Mazur at Houston Fertility Specialists?
Dr Mazur has an excellent bedside manner. He is caring and compassionate, but also realistic. He thoroughly covers all treatment options and takes the time to answer all questions. I have never felt rushed, or like my questions and concerns were insignificant or unfounded. Dr Mazur also has a direct phone line that you can call or text, and questions and concerns are addressed immediately.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erik Mazur at Houston Fertility Specialists?
Ask whatever questions you need to, no matter how simple or silly you think they are - don't be afraid that you're wasting his time.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erik Mazur at Houston Fertility Specialists?
Dr Mazur really cares about his patients. You can tell he is invested in the outcome. He really takes time to listen, answers all questions and makes you feel important rather than just a number.
Describe the protocols Erik Mazur used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Specialists and their degree of success.
I'm currently 13 weeks pregnant with our little boy after our first FET. From the beginning, Dr Mazur outlined the intended treatment plan of 2-3 IUIs before moving on to IVF if the IUIs were not successful due to me having a low AMH. The first IUI cycle was with 100mg clomid, the second with 100mg clomid and an ovidrel trigger shot. The second IUI resulted in an ectopic pregnancy. As this was my second ectopic pregnancy, Dr Mazur advised moving straight to IUI, as it appeared I had tubal issues (despite the HSG being clear). For our first IVF cycle, I took birth control for a month followed by Menopur and Gonal-F, with cetrotide added in during the second week. I appeared to be a slow responder and only had 2 good sized follicles during my check-up ultrasounds. The day I was supposed to trigger ovulation, my estrogen level dropped dramatically, which Dr Mazur said could be an indication of poor egg quality. We talked through our options, and Dr Mazur gave us the choice of cancelling the cycle, or continuing anyway. He didn't pressure us either way, but he did say that he felt we could do better by changing up a few things - we decided to cancel the cycle and start over. Before our 2nd cycle Dr Mazur prescribed DHEA and CoQ10 for a month. We skipped the birth control and started the stim meds straight away on day 2 of my cycle. We kept the protocol the same, with the exception of an increase in Gonal-F mid-way through the process. We started off with a large number of follicles, which dropped down to 2 again by the time of egg retrieval. We decided to go ahead this time since my estrogen levels remained high throughout. The retrieval resulted in 6 eggs from one ovary (my left ovary is inaccessible) - 3 fertilized and 2 made it to day 5 blasts. We did PGS testing and the 2 blasts and thankfully both were genetically normal and high quality. We did our FET the following month, and are expecting our little boy in September. We can't thank Dr Mazur enough for making this happen for us.

Describe Erik Mazur's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Houston Fertility Specialists.
Dr Mazur is a strong supporter of eSET and stated that he wanted me to have a healthy singleton pregnancy. Due to my age and other health issues, we wanted to minimize whatever risks we could, and were on board with just transferring a single embryo - especially as we knew both ours were top quality.

Half our embryos were not viable and this made a huge difference in the process. Since this has been such a long journey, we suggested Dr. Mazur to transfer two embryos instead of one. He did not feel comfortable with 2 embryos being transfer since he did not want me to have a high risk pregnancy and he was confident I was going to get pregnant. THANK GOD we decided to listen to him and just transfered one – on the first transfer we got pregnant.
Everything Amanda [nurse at Houston Fertility Specialists] provided was well organized. She printed calendars for us and marked every single medicine and step. They also provided a cellphone number where if we had any questions we could just text the team.

He never pressured us to make a decision. Thank God we decided to give IVF a try and thank God we decided to have Dr. Mazur and his team be by our side. Before any procedure Dr. Mazur will take the time to talk to me to make sure I was feeling well physically and emotionally. I will never be able to thank him enough for being so kind, gentle, and understanding. He made us feel comfortable, relaxed, and special. I have no doubt this made a difference in our outcome.

I feel so lucky to be a patient of Dr. Mazur's. I felt like he explained everything in exactly the right amount of detail. Before we tried IVF, we tried an IUI, but it wasn't working. He called me personally to explain why it wasn't working, and to give me options regarding the next course of treatment. I always felt like he genuinely cared about me.... We tried an IUI protocol first, and when that didn't work because I was growing too many eggs all at the same rate, we canceled the cycle and switched to IVF.
[SRM- Tacoma's] Strength - excellent communication from both my doctor and primary nruse. Weakness - The financial advice was not always clear. Also, when my nurse wasn't able to answer my questions, I received incomplete or confusing advice from other nurses.... When another nurse was standing in for my primary nurse, she didn't communicate clearly when regarding how much of certain meds I should be taking. I feel that she wasn't operating with all the information she needed.
