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.
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.
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.
Describe your experience with Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
The clinic's 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 costs associated with your care under Gary Hubert at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
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.
Describe Gary Hubert's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility & Surgical Associates of California.
