How was your experience with Gregory Neal at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Absolutely enjoy Dr. Neal, however, the only downside I have had is that we have only dealt with him once. After that it was either the other Dr.'s or nurses in the practice. Dr. Neal did make sure we were taken care or and over saw our course of treatment. We were successful at getting pregnant with our first IUI but unfortunately the pregnancy just didn't want to stay.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gregory Neal at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Ask up front if he will be doing all visits or if he would be passing on to others. This hasn't bothered me as much because we still received great care. But if you are someone that wants the exact dr every time make sure you say something.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gregory Neal at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
From our first visit Dr. Neal spent then entire consultation with us that lasted several hours. Answered every question we had. He even ensured a follow up call was made and made sure our concerns and fears were taken care of as well.
Describe the protocols Gregory Neal used in your cycles at Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
Prior to coming to the clinic we went through 2 rounds of clomid that were unsuccessful. So, once we were referred to the clinic and informed him of the outcome from clomid he went with his course of action. The First 2 months were a lot of blood test, follicular sonograms, and a sonohysterograph. All the different blood test checked for AMH, Sperm Antibody (IGA, IGG), Varicella-Zoster V Ab, TSH, Rubella Antibodies, RPR, Prolactin, HIV, HCV, HBsAg Screen, CCDC, Antibody Screen, ABO Grouping, FSH, and Estradiol. Had to take 1 month of birth control to do a saline sono. He also placed my husband on clomid to help with low T. For our first IUI I was place on 2.5mg Letrozole and then triggered the night before IUI with Ovidrel 250mcg. We had 2 very nice follicles one on each side that were for sure large enough to release. Unfortunately, I miscarried and then had an ectopic as well.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff were always welcoming, communicative, and concerned for my well being. Once you start coming in on a weekly basis you get to know them much more and are always open for conversation and openness for questions.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of San Antonio.
The clinic has a very consistent staff and all are always ready to help as needed. I feel that they are truly there to help however they can. The only weakness I have found is sometime the communication between the nurses when scheduling or doing call backs may get mixed up. This may be resolved with a better system.
