[Dr. Gary Hubert] He was confident in his decision making, but also listened to me and my past experiences in another clinic, and let me make my own decisions regarding tailoring treatments, etc...[he]looked at the protocol from my 1st 2 egg retrievals (in which one resulted in a healthy baby!), he suggested we use lower levels of gonadropins since egg quantity was never an issue, but egg quality seemed to be lower than he would have thought
[nurse of Fertility & Surgical Associates of California] She was such a force of stability and comfort throughout the whole process, and I am so thankful to her! The rest of the clinic coordinating staff was less than excellent, as it is unclear who your "primary" nurse is in the process..We paid around 10k for each retrieval and transfer cycle. There were additional costs on top of that, but for the most part, this was far and above cheaper than numerous other clinics we had looked at
How was your experience with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Dr. Hubert was everything you would want in an RE. He was confident in his decision making, but also listened to me and my past experiences in another clinic, and let me make my own decisions regarding tailoring treatments, etc. He is empirically based and up to date with the science, and still active faculty at UCLA. However, he also understands there is a human component to this work, and is willing to humor you if you feel you need to add a certain component to your treatment that will not hurt things (i.e. my only success in the past came from an immune protocol, and he was willing to add these steps to achieve success in our last protocol). However, when I pushed him about transferring 2 embryos, he was kind, but strongly suggested I only transfer 1. I'm now pregnant with that one and so happy that he pushed me to do another single embryo transfer before making an irrational decision. He is a superb Dr and I can't thank him enough.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Make sure you do your own research and feel free to express your concerns or desires to Dr. Hubert - more than not, he is willing to listen and make changes to make you more comfortable.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Dr. Hubert is amazingly considerate and gentle with his patients through this difficult process. From our initial consult (in which I cried because this path has been so difficult) he was calm and understanding and gave us the confidence we needed to proceed with treatment with him. He was completely rational about our chances of success and gave no false hope, but also calm and collected and reassured us that we could do this.
Describe the protocols Gary Hubert used in your cycles at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California and their degree of success.
I have done 4 cycles and all were very similar and relatively textbook (antagonist cycles). We are dealing with MFI and I have done all my retrievals in my early 30s, so I think my treatment will always be pretty standard. Dr. Hubert looked at the protocol from my 1st 2 egg retrievals (in which one resulted in a healthy baby!), he suggested we use lower levels of gonadropins since egg quantity was never an issue, but egg quality seemed to be lower than he would have thought. After my first cycle with Dr. Hubert, in which I made lots of eggs but very few genetically sound embryos, Dr. Hubert suggested we try a cycle in which I didn't down-regulate with birth control prior to stimulation. This resulted in 3 healthy embryos, and the first transfer of these embryos resulted in a positive pregnancy (20 weeks now). I appreciated his willingness to adapt his protocols in light of disappointing results.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California. (Assigned nurse: Tanisha)
Tanisha was amazing. She was such a force of stability and comfort throughout the whole process, and I am so thankful to her! The rest of the clinic coordinating staff was less than excellent, as it is unclear who your "primary" nurse is in the process. I basically decided Tanisha was my primary point person, but felt that the communication with the nurses was a bit scattered and unclear. Assigning each patient a primary nurse, or at least a primary email address to reach someone is my biggest suggestion to make this clinic run more smoothly.
Describe your experience with Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
Dr. Hubert is hands down this clinic's strength. Weaknesses are the uncoordinating nursing staff and responsiveness of the clinic. However, when I came to this clinic, I had already gone through 2 egg retrievals and 2 transfer, so none of this was new to me and I was able to navigate the system as I needed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
We paid around 10k for each retrieval and transfer cycle. There were additional costs on top of that, but for the most part, this was far and above cheaper than numerous other clinics we had looked at. We were willing to pay as much as needed to do make this work, but it was such a refreshing feeling to know that this clinic was not scamming us and the lower rate meant we had more money to spend on additional cycles. For us, we felt like it was a numbers game, so this was huge.
Describe Gary Hubert's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
I mentioned this above, but Dr. Hubert encouraged me to do another eSET after a failed eSET, even though I pushed him to think about a two embryo transfer. I think he was right as I am now 20 weeks with one embryo, and a lot less concerned about complications involved with a twin pregnancy (especially during these wild COVID times).

Dr. Hubert looked at my testing from a previous clinic and noted that my thyroid numbers were a little high, so he initially prescribed medication to lower them. He was pleased with the results from my ultrasound, so we did one LH timed cycle with no medication. When it was not successful, I went on Clomid and injectibles for another IUI try...was stellar throughout the whole process...listened to our wants and needs, reviewed all our medical records, had me do more testing, prescribed medications, and even had his PA text him when we was unable to be in the office for one of my scans because it was his day off.
All of the nurses at Fertility Surgical & Associates were excellent. They confirmed all my appointments, gave me printed instructions and calendars for treatment, called in all of my prescriptions, followed up with the pharmacy when they wouldn't refill one of my prescriptions, gave me demonstrations of how to administer my injectible medication, and were just all so lovely. It couldn't have been a more drastic juxtaposition of my previous clinic...Approximately $2,000 per IUI cycle...Weaknesses - The clinic is very busy, so sometimes there is a long wait to see your doctor. There are also sometimes some double billings (I received some bills in the mail that I had already paid) which can be confusing. Strengths - definitely compassion, organization, information given to the patients, confidence in care. Really everything else is great.
How was your experience with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Dr. Hubert was stellar throughout the whole process. We came to him because we went through three terrible cycles with another clinic and didn't feel like we got our best shot. Dr. Hubert listened to our wants and needs, reviewed all our medical records, had me do more testing, prescribed medications, and even had his PA text him when we was unable to be in the office for one of my scans because it was his day off.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Make sure you let him know what your wants and needs are - he will definitely take them into consideration during your treatment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Everyone at the clinic, including Dr. Hubert, was wonderful. I felt like I was being cared for as a patient, and they were all proactive in helping me and my wife through the process.

Dr. Hubert provided us with excellent care and communication. He was always available whenever we needed him and he was at every appointment (outside of when I just needed to go in and get blood drawn). He understands that this is a tough and expensive process and he would go out of his way to make sure we understood everything...He will study your unique case and adjust accordingly...made my husband and I feel comfortable from the moment we met him. He is very personable and knowledgable and was always willing to go the extra mile with his level of care. He expressed that I could call/text him at any time and that he was here for us. My last doctor never gave me his number and I never had any personal contact with him outside of my scheduled appointments. It really made a difference that Dr. Hubert was so caring during such a sensitive time for us.
The entire team [at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California] was very friendly and always made my husband and I feel welcome. This can be a very overwhelming process and all our questions were thoroughly answered and when we needed clarification they were available via telephone call and email. We would always get callbacks quickly even on the weekends when we needed to leave a message with the operator (since they have limited weekend hours). Dr. Hubert's team was professional and courteous.

He [Dr. Gary Hubert] was gentle, has great bed-side manner, explained everything in great detail...Other than a protocol which did not agree with me, and the doctor sometimes telling me he had not seen swelling or certain side effects in other patients, when they were clearly side effects produced by certain medications he was prescribing me, he was kind, compassionate, dedicated and knowledgable...He is truly wonderful despite my three rounds not working with him!
$9,500 IVF Round, FASC Anaesthesia $550 + Genetic Testing $4500 + Embryo Freeze $685 (up to 8 embryos) [at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California]...The accounting people were a little awkward and strange and pricing varied substantially among paying patients as I saw from other reviews...The waiting room was seriously small, always packed and with little to no beverages or comforts. Also after getting Ultrasounds or Bloodwork, you are made to wait in the busy hallway where there are only four chairs, which often leave you standing and feeling like you're in the way. They also make you wait quite a while to speak to the nurses after the bloodwork and ultrasounds, which wastes time and is often useless. A call with results later in the day, as per other clinics, is far better in my humble opinion. Not my favourite clinic.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
Nurses were not as quick to respond, knowledgeable when explaining how to take your meds nor as organised as some of the other nurses I've worked with in the past. However, they were sweet, kind and generous with samples and went above and beyond to deliver emergency medication, when the pharmacy I was using was having trouble. So for that, they definitely take the golden medal!
Describe your experience with Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
Receptionists were always bright and cheerful. They have a stupid way of blocking their number when they call you. Which is insane. As these are important calls with a lot of time sensitivity. I get a lot of "Blocked Calls" from Marketeers and Spam, which I do not answer. With something this important you need to know that it is your IVF clinic that is calling. I have worked with Dr. Sadaat, Multiple doctors at HRC and SCRC and none blocked their numbers. The accounting people were a little awkward and strange and pricing varied substantially among paying patients as I saw from other reviews on FertilityIQ. The waiting room was seriously small, always packed and with little to no beverages or comforts. Also after getting Ultrasounds or Bloodwork, you are made to wait in the busy hallway where there are only four chairs, which often leave you standing and feeling like you're in the way.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
We waited over two weeks for our Genetic testing, results had been received yet not relayed to us. We had to keep calling. When you go through so much emotionally and have so many steps to wait for, (it is a constant waiting game from the moment your eggs start growing, to retrieval, to fertilisation, to embryo growth, then genetic testing -- the lack of communication with such important matters is a real let down and pushed our patience to the limit!

The nurse was able to do all of that for me so there was no extra wait.

I have gone through 2 rounds of IUI with no positive test. All of the tests have come back negative for problems for me and my husband. We have not had any miscarriages which is positive.

We took last month off due to being out of town when I would have needed the treatment. Now we have to decide if we are going to continue doing it. I’ve had friends who have been successful with it after several months, but it gets discouraging. It cost about $3,000 the first month and about $1,250 for the second month. The cost adds up quickly and makes it tough when you don’t know if it will ever work.

But when I ask he is always willing to provide more detail. He focuses purely on medicine and i think it would be helpful to have a more holistic approach that includes diet, supplements, etc.... Ovulation induction with timed intercourse to ensure my body is properly working. D&C for miscarriage. He provided many options for recovery and We chose that option.

Dr. Hubert is very professional and knowledgeable about infertility. He takes his time with his patients and does not make you feel rushed out. Dr. Hubert gives you all your options up front and will answer all you questions not matter how many or how repetitive.... I feel that he is giving me and will continue to give me the best care and that he does want my end result to end up with a healthy baby. With that said, the office is very popular because they are very good at what they do, so it is hard to not feel like you are just part of the crowd at times.
The clinic's [Fertility & Surgical Associates of CA] staff all round, from doctors to front office staff, are all great. They communicate well and take their time with each patient. The only thing about this place, and its a good and a bad thing, is the fact that they are so busy all the time. Many people obviously put their trust into this clinic and the clinic greats such great reviews which make the office busy and can sometimes get backed up.

Describe the protocols Gary Hubert used in your cycles at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California and their degree of success.
Dr. Hubert ordered all the correct blood work and an HSG before moving on to the next step. My blood work came back great but my HSG result where inconclusive because the dye did not go through one of my tubes. He gave me my options which were, laparoscopy, IUI or the most aggressive approach, IVF. He felt that because I already conceived one child naturally and because of my age, I may have had a good chance at getting pregnant with IUI. After two failed IUI's and another round of clomid failed, I asked about the surgery to possible correct the tube and he stated that because I have PCOS the results would be the same, meaning, I would most likely still need to go forward with IVF. The decision came down to how aggressive I want to be with becoming pregnant, so I have chosen to move forward with IVF.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
The nurses are great. The office is very busy and the nurses stay so on top of it and make you feel like you are their main priority at all times.

I felt that the cost has been fair for the state of California. My insurance does not cover any infertility so I have been paying completely out of pocket.

Dr. Hubert always answered my questions thoroughly and never made me feel dumb or like I should already know the answers to my questions. He sat down with my husband and I for multiple consultations when we had questions about what was to come next. He even gave me his cell phone number so I could get a hold of him if I had any questions. He is always extremely encouraging and confident that I am going to be a mom. I feel that Dr. Hubert is extremely knowledgeable and has a ton of experience in the field.
My biggest critique is the billing department [at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California] and their ability in dealing with insurance. There was a major lack of communication when I was trying to get insurance coverage for my IUI's and it left me battling for medication at the last minute and made my first experience with IUI a stressful one. It takes a long time for them to return phone calls and you have to be on top of them if you want a response quickly. I also feel as though there is a lack of communication in the different departments of the clinic. From billing to nurses to doctors I wish there was a little more organization in how they communicate. In terms of the doctor, the nurses and what they provide though, I would not change a thing. The only thing that would make it better for me is if the office were smaller. But again that is just personal preference.

Ask as many questions as you can to make you feel comfortable with what your plan of action is. Don't ever feel like you can't ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
The doctors office is fairly large. I feel as though I would have preferred it if Dr. Hubert were a part of a smaller office. I never felt as though he didn't answer my questions or that he didn't care about me as an individual but it is hard to not feel like a number when the office is so large.
Describe the protocols Gary Hubert used in your cycles at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California and their degree of success.
1st IUI: 50mg Clomid for 5 days. 75 units Gonal F for 3 days. Triggered on Day 9. IUI Day 10. 2nd IUI: 50mg Clomid for 5 days. 75 units Gonal F for 3 days. Triggered on Day 9. IUI Day 10 and 11. 3rd IUI: 50mg Clomid for 5 days. 75 units Gonal F for 3 days. Triggered on Day 9. IUI Day 10 and 11.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
I really like the nursing staff. They are all very nice and answer my questions thoroughly and if they don't know the answer they have never hesitated to call Dr. Hubert to get the answer. My problem is that there are so many of them that you never end up talking to the same nurse twice. If you do have the same nurse more than once its almost like you have to re explain who you are and what your situation is. I wish I would have had one nurse that followed me from day 1. But again I think this is just how it is with such a big clinic.

How was your experience with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Working with Dr. Hubert and his staff have really helped to reduce the stress of fertility treatments. Should I need a little extra time to have something explained to me they male sure someone sits with me one on one until I understand. I rarely have to wait long to see the doctor or a nurse. At times I can feel the doctor is a little too optimistic, but that is more of my pessimism at work. Especially during these difficult times with the Covid 19 pandemic the staff is staying in contact bro help ease worries. The doctor and his staff conducted a webinar that really helped calm my anxiety about hailing to put treatment on hold for the time being. Overall, I could not say enough good things about Dr. Hubert and the staff at FSAC.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
I would advise a prospective patient to go into it being open and honest because he will truly listen to you. Not only will he listen but will also give you as many options as possible.

I think he [Dr. Gary Hubert] does a great job of giving you his full attention during appointments and laying out all options. I never felt pushed in any direction, he definitely makes you feel like you have options, and he's there when you're ready...Once I reached a 6-month mark I thought it was time to try an IUI cycle. He did a great job educating me on how we would proceed with the procedure.
The [Fertility & Surgical Associates of California] Thousand Oaks office is pretty large and they have a large staff. I was not assigned to a specific nurse...[cost/error]Same consultations, same meds, same ultrasound appointments and IUI procedure yet so much more expensive. I definitely struggled with that. I went to the extent to ask Dr. Hubert about the fees if the codes were the same (billing codes). He redirected me to his checkout clerk who couldn't answer any of my questions.
How was your experience with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
I appreciate Dr. Hubert's directness. This is what he does for a living, and he speaks with so many patients with a variety of fertility concerns and diagnoses. I think he does a great job of giving you his full attention during appointments and laying out all options. I never felt pushed in any direction, he definitely makes you feel like you have options, and he's there when you're ready.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
Being that my husband and I have been TTC a few years I already know what to ask and I'm not afraid or shy to ask. As many of us know, you start to hear the same themes and perhaps you read a lot of fertility content online. Be an advocate for yourself, be ready with your questions and don't shy away from asking him. Your time with him is just that, direct the conversation and don't leave until you're done going through your concerns/questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California?
As we all know, TTC is a journey and there are many ups and downs. I heard a lot of great things about Dr. Hubert from a friend who was successful with him (IVF). I decided to meet with Dr. Hubert for a consultation. I thought he was very direct, he provided me with a lot of facts and laid out my options and made me feel confident in my choices. At the time of treatment, I was 37, and he said that everything looked pretty good. Clearly not as good as a 22-year-old but I still had a good chance to conceive on my own. My husband does not have any underlying issues that affect our chances. He said I should give myself a few months before making a decision to move forward so we did. We haven't been successful yet but I am ready for the next step.
Describe the protocols Gary Hubert used in your cycles at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California and their degree of success.
With my case, Dr. Hubert thought I had a little time before starting treatment. Once I reached a 6-month mark I thought it was time to try an IUI cycle. He did a great job educating me on how we would proceed with the procedure. Unfortunately, I was not successful.

You may wait longer than anticipated. This is to be expected with most doctor appointments. I think the coordination/operations could be a little tighter, maybe there should be more than one nurse Lead.

Oddly enough, my first Fertility doctor (Santa Barbara) was not nearly as expensive as Dr. Hubert's office. Same consultations, same meds, same ultrasound appointments and IUI procedure yet so much more expensive. I definitely struggled with that. I went to the extent to ask Dr. Hubert about the fees if the codes were the same (billing codes). He redirected me to his checkout clerk who couldn't answer any of my questions.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
When we had decided to move forward with an IUI cycle, Dr. Hubert, unfortunately, was going to be away so he explained that Dr. Banuelos was going to actually do the IUI procedure. Fine, no problems! The nurse that step my meds was great with instructions and ordering the meds. I received them, took them went in for my checkup prior to the IUI. Dr. B told me that everything was looking good. He explained that I would need to be at the office sooner than we had anticipated. He asked that I go back 2 days later for another check up to see how my follicles were coming along but so far everything was looking good. I went for the second follow up with Dr. B in hopes that he would tell me when we could move forward with the actual IUI. He told me to go back the following day with my husband or my husband's sperm. I was given a kit for my husband's sperm sample. Perfect no problem! Well, here is where the plot thickens. As I am checking out of my appointment the nurse reviews my file then asks if my husband was going to be coming with me to the IUI appointment. I said no, he had to work so I would be driving in with his sample. (Mind you, I live 45 minutes away from Thousand Oaks). I was given specific instructions from Dr. B on how to bring my husband's sample. The nurse goes on to inform me that if I were to bring my husband's example I would need a form signed and it would need to be notarized. I asked why this form was never brought to my attention the last few weeks of treatment and the nurse could not answer. I believe this was on Sunday morning which greatly effected how I'd get a form notarized. I pleaded with the front desk nurse on allowing my husband to facetime and sign the document. (Which meant that he'd have to be near a printer, face time, sign, take a photo and text or email the photo of the forms back to me. They said no. What should have been an exciting appointment to leave was now completely ruined. I plumped my follicles up to their extreme I was so bloated for days and now I couldn't make this happen. there was no one I could turn to get the form notarized that day and if this procedure was to happen I would need to have the notarized form in my hand with my husband's sample early the next morning, (don't forget to include my 45 minute drive). I was livid. I 100% think that Dr. Hubert set the expectations with the procedure. I 100% think the nurse who ordered my meds broke down every instruction for me. At this point, I had paid for three visits (Dr. Hubert, 2 with Dr. B) and hundreds of dollars in meds. The front desk nurse had the Lead/Head nurse get involved and she was simply unapologetic as to how paperwork on their end was never completed with me. She was flat out rude, not compassionate, and cold. I literally felt like crying right then and there, instead, I left and drove my 45-minute drive in pure anger and confusion.
