Dr. Munch is the 4th RE I have seen. I came to her frustrated by how I was treated and how care was managed else where. She was kind and answered all my questions, easing any anxieties I had. She didn’t talk down to me or dismiss my suggestions or inquires. She is super smart and knows her stuff. So far what she predicted or estimated for me as far as outcomes has been spot on. She moves swiftly with treatment and is always very professional. She is also very efficient with time, yet I never feel rushed by her. I Highly recommend her...Go see her, you won’t be disappointed.
She [nurse at Texas Fertility Center] is organized, kind, compassionate, efficient and very responsive to calls and emails. So lucky to have her through this process...May be on the more pricey side, no fixed packages. It is all a la carte so you pay for each US, blood draw, the lab, the anesthesia, the doctor, the surgery center, medications etc separately and directly to the source on your own...It’s one doctor, which I find better than the team approach at other clinics. But, this can mean rescheduling due to emergencies. They know your name when you walk in or call. There are not many weaknesses, but you should know that there aren’t any treatment plans or programs offered it is all a la carts pricing and this can be daunting.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Erika Munch at Texas Fertility Center?
Go see her, you won’t be disappointed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Erika Munch at Texas Fertility Center?
Dr. Munch and her nurse are very personable and patient. They take their time and her treatment of me seemed tailored to me personally. Front desk staff is good, but there could be some improvement in terms of humanness there. Still, I have never felt like I was in a factory-as I did with a different clinic in town
Describe the protocols Erika Munch used in your cycles at Texas Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I have pcos so she used an antagonist protocol. I took bcp for about two weeks and used a hybrid trigger Of Lupron and hcg. She took every approach to help avoid ohss but I did still end up with it a little. Her strategy was to get as many eggs as possible, which ended up being 35 and they were all mature, 34 fertilized. She does not order many blood labs, which I thought was strange at first but so far it has not proved to be an issue so I am trusting her methods. She also did ultrasounds less than I expected.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Texas Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Hannah O)
Hannah is the best! She is organized, kind, compassionate, efficient and very responsive to calls and emails. So lucky to have her through this process.
Describe your experience with Texas Fertility Center.
The strength of TFC-San Antonio is the personalized attention and care you get. It’s one doctor, which I find better than the team approach at other clinics. But, this can mean rescheduling due to emergencies. They know your name when you walk in or call. There are not many weaknesses, but you should know that there aren’t any treatment plans or programs offered it is all a la carts pricing and this can be daunting.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Erika Munch at Texas Fertility Center.
May be on the more pricey side, no fixed packages. It is all a la carte so you pay for each US, blood draw, the lab, the anesthesia, the doctor, the surgery center, medications etc separately and directly to the source on your own. Ivf with pgs testing was 20k in total, but this is very specific to the individual. FET 3-4K
Describe Erika Munch's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Texas Fertility Center.
Very strong preference for single egg transfer. This did not bother me, but might be an issue for some. She is adamant on this.

Dr. Munch broke down all the options available based on my diagnosis. She explained her reasoning behind prescriptions and procedures. She really took the time to make sure we understood each time we were in her office. Our first IUI with her resulted in a pregnancy....Dr. Munch was very clear on her plans for us and her reasoning behind every decision. She gave us best case scenario for the highest probability of a successful pregnancy. Her goal is to get you pregnant and not suck the money out of you.
The wait time [Texas Fertility Center] were sometimes long at the end of the day but it could also be from other patients appointments running longer than anticipated. They helped me shop around for the best pricing on medications as well. When I walked out of my appointment, they were prepared with my paperwork. It is not a huge staff so I am pretty familiar with the faces in the office....I had most of my interaction with Dr. Munch, but the nurses had a system that worked great.

Dr. Munch is compassionate, a good listener, up to date on most recent research, and always explains things thoroughly. She cares about you before, during and after treatment. She even asked for us to come back and visit with our miracle baby. She let us start with treatment in the manner that we wanted and was very optimistic despite our grim diagnosis.
The only con that we found with this clinic [Texas Fertility Center of San Antonio] was the paperwork routine seemed a little disorganized. There were no copies of paper work given to us so it was at times difficult to remember what we had discussed or certain protocols..... $10,000 for 3 rounds of IUI and 3 medicated times intercourse cycles.
