Dr. Browne explained how my treatment would be tailored so that I would be at a minimal risk of OHSS while still getting many high quality eggs. She was extremely kind and patient during our visits, answering all of my questions and making sure I understood what the next steps were. I was able to text Dr. Browne one evening late on Friday night when I had an injection issue, which I felt like was above and beyond. I was super happy with my results and would totally recommend Dr. Browne to my friends and family!!
Kindbody was great at communicating to me all the steps for my cycle, and making sure I felt supported. Their prices were significantly cheaper than other places in NYC, but the quality of the care was amazing. They have a patient portal to review results and receiving additional instructions / documents from doctors, which made coordinating with the clinical team very easy...Hina and Anna [nurses] were so nice! I was able to text them questions at all hours, and make sure I was doing my injections properly.

Describe the protocols Hyacinth Nicole Browne used in your cycles at Kindbody and their degree of success.
I started on 150 IU of Menopur, which was increased to 225 IU of Menopur on day 5 of stimulation since my estrogen was not rising as quickly as expected. I then started 250 IU of Ganirelix on day 9 of stimulation. I did my trigger shot on day 15.

Dr. Browne is an exceptional human being and amazing experienced doctor. She is super understanding and caring doctor. She would treat every patient with so much care and personal attention. She would directly text me and call me with all results and plan of action. She was available 24/7 even on weekends to answer any question through text and even on the phone. I have not seen or heard a doctor who would be so accessible to her patients in this manner. There was always direct communication with her during my clinic visits and through texts and phone calls.
Scheduling [at Hudson Valley Fertility] was a problem. But staff is very helpful. The clinic is well staffed, equipped and greatly maintained and in centrd location. Getting appointments was also easy. The facility has everything for IVF procedures. Staff were friendly and accessible.... She [Dr. Hyacinth Browne] is an expert in her field & treated me with minimal stimulation using medications as less as possible respecting my desire to use least medication with maximum results.

Dr. Browne is smart. I mean that in the most sincere way. She doesn't sugar coat things, however, she was optimistic and was thorough in testing for any obstacles (my previous RE neglected to do a saline sonogram which she did and found polyps) to maximize chances of success. ... I'm over 40, with diminished ovarian reserve. My previous cycle (day 3 fresh transfer with high doses of Menopur and Follistim) failed. Rather than upping the dose of injections, she went the opposite direction and did mini-IVF with only Follistim and Letrozole. I wasn't going to make a lot of eggs so she believed overstimming would fry the eggs.
The clinic [Kindbody] is women-led, women-run and centrally located in the Flatiron. The staff members are competent and caring. The IVF instructions and appointments are all accessible via a patient portal. Honestly, I can't think of a weakness at this point. ... I was in contact with Anna the most during my cycle. She coordinated my daily injections and scheduled all of my monitoring visits

Results were the same as the first cycle with a different RE. 4 eggs retrieved, 3 fertilized, two made it to day 3, however, they both arrested before day 5.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
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 [staff at New England Fertility Center] 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.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at New England Fertility Institute.
On one of my protocols they gave me conflicting information as to the timing of my trigger shot. My doctor said one thing. But the nurse told me something else which caused me to ovulate early and my cycle was not successful. Also they couldn’t remember if they billed me for certain procedures..

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.
The office staff [at Sher Fertility] in Westchester are lovely. I had Dr. Browne's mobile number and was able to call her. She responded to all my emails... The staff in the city office are rushed.

She [Dr. Browne] offered me her personal cell phone and would text me with results.she was also very caring.... She is a wonderful doctor with great bedside manner. She is great with women with diminished ovarian reserve and truly did what other doctors couldn’t do. I haven’t had success yet, but she did get me to respond to medications, which was much more than others could!... I did not benefit from the high dose protocols ( menopur, ganirelix) but did for low dose!
New England Fertility is very expensive for the out-of-pocket patient. The office is beautiful and clean/ the lady who takes blood is very nice and personable. The procedures are very organized! I highly recommend Dr. Browne for individualized attention.... I preferred to work with my doctor as much as possible, as the nurses weren’t very warm.... I believe one cycle without medications is around $17,000
