We saw Dr. Daftary primarily for our first cycle. That cycle was a learning curve for all of us and was full of little and big bumps along the way. He never made us feel like we should give up..Dr. Daftary is a very warm doctor. He enthusiastically greets you with a hug and showed us a great deal of compassion after our failed cycles...Don't be afraid to ask him questions or call him with concerns...when we ultimately did get pregnant from our 3rd cycle he was as excited as we were.
The clinic [Mayo Clinic] does have some organization issues. Nothing big enough to mess up our cycles but there were some hiccups...There was one mixup with infectious disease testing. They caught it and sent me down for the testing....At the time the consultation was $500. The ivf package with offsite monitoring was $8700...We had a fairly standard protocol on my side. I did end up with ohss the first time so we adjusted the stims for the next cycle. We did have to use icsi for fertilization.

Describe Gaurang Daftary's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Mayo Clinic.
All of the doctors at Mayo recommended one embryo for us. When I requested to transfer two the first cycle he was in agreement with my reasons and shared the risks. Ultimately we only had one blast that cycle. We transferred one during round two and then two during round 3. We were given everything we needed to know about the risks but we were in the drivers seat.

Dr. Daftary [at Mayo Clinic] was amazing. He has a very positive attitude, and is blunt and proactive when it comes to treatment options. I always felt comfortable with him...He always had a smile on his face and a positive attitude. He gave me hugs or patted my hand when he sensed I needed it...I had a successful IVF cycle with ICSI. We did ICSI because there was no logical reason why our medicated TI cycles weren't working so he suspected there might be an issue with my eggs being too tough for the sperm to penetrate. I can't remember the exact drugs and dosages right now.
