At the beginning, I thought she [Dr. Browne] was great but as things progressed she didn't seem sound on her own opinion and would change it, eg. when to trigger me etc. she often changed her mind at the last min (eg, 3 day transfer v 5 day). On the last attempt she did not clearly explain why the volume of eggs was so low.

She [Dr. Browne] is willing to do untested multiple embryo transfer as well as up to two tested embryos...Her bedside manner is so compassionate. She takes to time to throughly explain things. She also is helpful in providing great articles to read. She has been my biggest cheerleader while setting realistic expectations...She is clear and focused. She always seems as committed as the first time I met her to help me have a child. It seems as though it is truly her life’s work. She explains all the risks. And is willing to shift when new information arises in my treatment.

They are okay, but not as good as good as Dr. Browne.
Describe your experience with New England Fertility Institute.
They don’t communicate well with one another. And the finance department is a bit chilly in their responses. But they are tech savvy and their portal works well. Some of the nurses are very very compassionate. When things are trying they are encouraging. Their billing is wacky and it seems as though they don’t always keep track of when and what they are charging.
