When I relocated to Katy Dr. Hadad took over with my second round of treatment which resulted in a son and my final treatment which resulted in boy/girl twins. He and his staff are excellent and I highly recommend them every time I talk to someone struggling with infertility.... After a miscarriage at 10 weeks with a fresh embryo transfer Dr. Hadad spent time making a treatment plan for me when it came time to transfer frozen embryos. He also recommended a hysteroscopy prior to the transfer of my last two embryos which resulted in twins. His nurses mapped out my medication schedule with me to help me stay on track, called and emailed regularly, and were on top of blood work and follow ups.
The entire staff [at Houston Fertility Institute-Katy] is very knowledgeable and thorough. Regardless of the number of emails I sent or phone calls I made someone quickly got back to me with any concerns or questions that I had. Even when my first pregnancy was not successful they were very compassionate and checked in on me multiple times after my d&c. During the next two rounds they continued to stay confident even when I wasn’t. Compassion and the bedside manner goes along way in this industry. It can be an emotional roller coaster for many people, myself included. Having a fertility clinic that doesn’t make you feel like just another number or paycheck can make a world of difference. I am an active member in my area parents of multiples group and I brag about Dr. Hadad and the Houston fertility institute every time I get a chance.
How was your experience with Gus Haddad at Houston Fertility Institute?
When I first started the fertility journey I saw another doctor with Houston fertility clinic at another location. That was also a great experience. When I relocated to Katy Dr. Hadad took over with my second round of treatment which resulted in a son and my final treatment which resulted in boy/girl twins. He and his staff are excellent and I highly recommend them every time I talk to someone struggling with infertility.

Little contact with Dr. Haddad unless I insisted on speaking with him (and had to justify it to the nurse). However, I knew that he always reviewed my chart and stayed up to date on my protocol....Dr. Haddad is incredibly smart and up-to-date on the latest advances. He is very honest and candid about concerns and prognosis. Over the course of my treatment with him, he became more compassionate as we faced many setbacks. I never stopped trusting that he would help me become a mother, which he ultimately did.
[The nurses at Houston Fertility Institute are] top notch!

Describe the protocols Gus Haddad used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We used a high-dose antagonist protocol during my first IVF. After the poor response, we quickly changed to the microdose lupon protocol which worked very well. For future transfers, we also used some immunology treatments (per my suggestion).

Dr Haddad as a doctor was wonderful. ... After the testing phase we stopped going because my insurance wasn’t going to cover any of it. ... He took his time with me but the financial part of it was unattainable ... However I felt like they pushed me into ivf. They didn’t offer iui or a regular cycle of clomid. I felt like they could have tried other options before telling me I needed the 20000 dollar procedure.
They are all very professional. However I felt like they [Houston Fertility Institute] pushed me into ivf. They didn’t offer iui or a regular cycle of clomid. I felt like they could have tried other options before telling me I needed the 20000 dollar procedure. ... The clinic was awesom as well I just wish they worked harder to make it more affordable for the average income. ... Like I said previously, I felt like there was no option other than ivf and my insurance didn’t help at all.

Like I said previously, I felt like there was no option other than ivf and my insurance didn’t help at all. It was very expensive to go through the testing and then for him to only give me the most expensive option made me feel discouraged!

Dr Haddad is friendly and listens to any concerns and answers any questions. I saw him during my diagnosis stage and then once the course of treatment was defined it was just the nurses up until the IUI.
You won't see him [Dr. Haddad] at every visit but his partners [at Houston Fertility Institute] are there too and are equally nice. I saw the same nurses all the time and could get a hold of them and ask questions easily. When I called I could always speak to a nurse or send an email and they would respond same day. Everyone is super friendly and sweet!
