I feel that he [Dr. Lin] is a combination of experience and pragmatism balanced with an affable, relaxed demeanor. Once you are in your cycle, you have access to Dr. Lin via cell phone for any issues that arise...I felt that both Dr. Lin was open to my specific questions and gave mindful answers...Dr. Lin travels between OC, LA, and the IE to service his patients, and the nursing and clinical coordinator staff travel with him...I never had to see a backup doctor during my care...
When I called the main line [at Reproductive Fertility Center], I always got ahold of someone during business hours (Saturdays as well). If the person answering did not have the information, someone got back to me within a timely fashion. I found all the nurses capable and professional...it has a satellite office in Alhambra (despite being Irvine and Corona based) available for monitoring...Dr. Lin travels between OC, LA, and the IE to service his patients, and the nursing and clinical coordinator staff travel with him....
How was your experience with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Dr. Lin has been in the ART / IVF industry for a long while, and has a thriving practice. I feel that he is a combination of experience and pragmatism balanced with an affable, relaxed demeanor. Once you are in your cycle, you have access to Dr. Lin via cell phone for any issues that arise. I had a medication spill one evening, and was able to text Dr. Lin and he replied calmly, reassuringly how to handle. The office line also has an after hours service, and you have your coordinator's email as well. But knowing that in case of emergency, Dr. Lin was reachable was a nice comfort / safety. I am a patient who does a lot of reading, research, and stays in the know about elements of various protocols and trends. I felt that both Dr. Lin was open to my specific questions and gave mindful answers. One thing I appreciated, and which actually helped me choose this clinic, is that it has a satellite office in Alhambra (despite being Irvine and Corona based) available for monitoring. I was really only reviewing clinics in Los Angeles, and since Alhambra is accessible from LA, it made the difference of ruling out this practice for being OC-based (on distance alone). Dr. Lin travels between OC, LA, and the IE to service his patients, and the nursing and clinical coordinator staff travel with him. I think you have to love what you do, to want to drive into three different offices each week.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Do your homework, then go with your gut. Good luck! If you have questions about insurance or payment plans, their billing and coordinator staff are very reachable via email.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
I interviewed 3 RE's from my shortlist (whittled down via extensive research), and Dr. Lin was in my final two contenders. He is the head of 3 locations and a large staff, but always had a calm, affable demeanor. He felt a like a caring uncle who is relaxed and attentive in his work.
Describe the protocols James P. Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Lin did my third retrieval, after two I had done with another clinic: Antagonist, Natural Start (no priming). Began stims on Cycle Day 3. Gonal 225, Menopur 225. Cetrotide added halfway through stims. Ovidrel Trigger. The clinic offers acupuncture services and provides a list of suggested supplements. I had already been doing acupuncture from a sliding scale practitioner (sporadically, 6-months prior), as I believe in acupuncture in general and had begun supplements from "It Starts with the Egg" many months before beginning egg/embryo freezing. Results are similar to previous two cycles (different clinic) on Microdose Leuprolide Protocol aka Flare Protocol. Gonal 300, Menopur 150. Pregnyl 10000 Trigger. I asked both Dr. Lin and my previous doctor about Omnitrope, and neither seemed to feel it makes a difference. I like that both Dr. Lin and my previous doctor do not go over the combined dosage of 450 units stims, as other clinics go above this # and that is the highest dose that is statistically significant to make an impact. This is the first round that I created embryos, so I am awaiting more results.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Fertility Center.
The clinic has a professional staff of all women. When I called the main line, I always got ahold of someone during business hours (Saturdays as well). If the person answering did not have the information, someone got back to me within a timely fashion. I found all the nurses capable and professional. Michelle who runs the front desk at Alhambra on monitoring days was 100% on top of things, with a friendly, caring demeanor, as well as a crisp professionalism. Based on her demeanor alone, I was inclined to shortlist this clinic for my care. I like that they have different locations for monitoring, as I would not have considered this clinic without their Alhambra monitoring branch. When I called my shortlist, I was able to get scheduled with Dr. Lin for a consultation ahead of schedule compared to a lot of other offices. Dr. Lin works a lot of hours (three locations) and enjoys his work. I never had to see a backup doctor during my care. I like that women generally run the day-to-day here, since fertility is a very female-centric experience. Dr. Lin provides his cell for patients that are actively cycling, and I was able to get a response immediately when I had a medication spill. Do be prepared to drive to the Irvine or Corona office if you are an Alhambra patient, as that location is only a satellite office for monitoring (bloodwork, ultrasounds) and consultations. Procedures are conducted at Irvine or Corona (I never had to go to Corona). Dr. Lin is very experienced and has been in the IVF game. My previous doctor was young and perhaps more up on the minute-to-minute trends and evolution of ART, which was a positive. However, the monitoring, being treated like human being (not a number), cleanliness and organization of the clinic was also strong here. My questions were answered respectfully and kindly.
Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
Initially I consulted with RFC under OOP pricing. The fees were comparable with two other Los Angeles Clinics I had consults with for OOP. When I ended up undergoing treatment here, I was covered under insurance, so the pricing was based on my health plan.
Describe James P. Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Fertility Center.
I believe Dr. Lin chooses single embryo, but we did not discuss in detail, since I am at the freezing stage. Personally, I would only feel comfortable with single embryo transfer due to the risks.

Dr. Lin is intelligent and professional. He answered our questions and concerns. But I think there are some important skills to improve like listen to his patient, show support/compassion and most importantly encourage or motivate his patients not to lose hope...He discussed this [eSET] before and he prefer single embryo transfer vs. multiple due to risk factors. And we agreed upon it...I will still recommend Dr. Lin but don’t expect too much... I think there’s room to improve by showing sympathy/empathy to his patients.
I will recommend the clinic [Reproductive Fertility Center]. It’s very clean, spacious and have a cozy ambiance. Parking area is huge. The clinic is nicely located, close to the freeway and restaurants. The surrounding looks safe too. The front office receptionists are all very nice and professional. The nurses, acupuncturist and the financial coordinator are all amazing...After meeting insurance deductible, out of pocket maximum around 11-15 thousand dollars. Not including the acupuncture fees.
How was your experience with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Dr. Lin is intelligent and professional. He answered our questions and concerns. But I think there are some important skills to improve like listen to his patient, show support/compassion and most importantly encourage or motivate his patients not to lose hope. I have low ovarian reserve so it took a couple of months before my follicle count went up and we decided to proceed with egg retrieval. During the every cycle ultrasound visit I felt at some point he wants us to do the egg retrieval despite the low count follicle because my egg count won’t improve. But me and my partner were pushing to wait another month for a better count.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
I will still recommend Dr. Lin but don’t expect too much.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
I answered neutral because me and my partner didn’t really feel that there is a connection between us and Dr. Lin. I worked in a medical field for a long time and building that rapport with patients is my utmost priority. I’ve been his patient for almost a year and I still feel the same. I think there’s room to improve by showing sympathy/empathy to his patients.
Describe the protocols James P. Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I took stimulant injections- Gonal F 225 units, Menupur 2-3 vials ( can’t exactly remember) , Ovidrel and Cetrotide. I responded to the treatment I guess. The follicles were growing. However, I remember during my last ultrasound prior to egg retrieval, the ultrasonographer saw a fluid filled cyst on my right tube which most likely related to the stimulant medication (ovarian hyper stimulation). And on the day of post egg retrieval, Dr Lin mentioned that my uterus was flooded with fluids which caused difficulty with the procedure.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Fertility Center.
My care coordinator is good. She is very thorough and she communicates well. Always follow up in a timely manner especially with my lab results and any updates.

What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Fertility Center?
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Fertility Center.
I had a different care coordinator before my current care coordinator. The reason why I requested a change because my cycle was canceled on July due to miscommunication issue or failure of my previous care coordinator to follow through the process. I had my pre-assessment done in June 2021 -completed the US and all the needed testing at their clinic for insurance pre-authorization, gave my verbal consent that I want to proceed with IVF but because the care coordinator forgot that I gave consent the next cycle was canceled due to no insurance pre-authorization yet. I was really upset because that month (July) that we missed the ultrasound could have been a better month when it comes to follicle count. The month of June I had 8 follicles counted via ultrasound. The month of July was missed. The month of August until September was very low count from 1-4 follicles.

Dr. Lin is very good at what he does, and his attitude reflects that. He is not warm and friendly, but I'm not doing IVF to make friends. You go to Dr. Lin for his expertise and high success rates, NOT his bedside manner...He is blunt. You should have your questions ready for every appt. He will scribble numbers on your chart, but you need to be ready to ask him what things mean, and what is the next step.
The [Reproductive Fertility Center - Irvine] clinic has a high success rate, and therefore high prices! Full payment is due up front. At no point was I ever given finance options, so know your plan going in...All of the nursing staff are awesome. They more than make up for the doctor's brusque manner.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Fertility Center.
The clinic has a high success rate, and therefore high prices! Full payment is due up front. At no point was I ever given finance options, so know your plan going in. Also, I was surprised how much additional research I had to do on my own to understand the process. They do not do a good job explaining everything beforehand, nor explaining complementary therapies like acupuncture or yoga, that can enhance the efficacy of treatment.
Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
The prices are astronomical, especially when they do not offer financing. Or if it was available, it was never presented as an option. 2 rounds of IVF, not including meds or frozen embryo transfer was ~$24,000
Describe James P. Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Fertility Center.

Doctor Lin was highly recommended by my OB/GYN after our consultation he advised us to start with the UI no more than 3 times. We understood that the % is only 20% but we wanted to try this first as it is less aggressive to the body. We are now waiting to start our IVF hopefully soon after the COVID pandemic.

Dr Lin is very knowledgeable. I did not expect to see him much after our consultation but I was wrong. He performed every single visit of mine. Every ultrasound, egg retrieval and transfer was done by Dr. Lin. He made me feel like I was his top priority even though I know he’s seeing hundreds of patients. When things weren’t looking as they should, instead of cancelling my cycle he upped the meds and had me come back 3 days later to good results!
Strengths: dr Lin and his team [Reproductive Fertility Ctr] are the best. They make you feel welcome and get the job done. They will give you a detailed calendar and check in with you after each and every appointment Weakness: wait times are pretty bad. Sometimes up to an hour before being seen. They often don’t tell you when a urine sample is needed ahead of time (ps it’s the first baseline appt only). I do wish there was an online patient portal with appt reminders

Emails were answered promptly and everyone was so nice

Dr. Lin is a data driven medical professional... and provides his clinical insight regarding the appropriate procedures for the gameplan. Dr. Lin is highly professional and yet displays empathy regarding the struggles associated with infertility.... I have a medical diagnosis of a pituitary tumor (cyst) and due to this I have been on medication (Cabergoline) to help reduce my prolactin levels which are important in trying to get pregnant. In addition my husbands sperm were concerning regarding his morphology and motility.
The clinics [Reproductive Fertility Center] strengths is their effectiveness in communicating with their patients the procedures and medication use, etc. The atmosphere is friendly, welcoming and very clean. Undergoing the stress of already dealing with infertility, this agency provided the emotional and financial support to its patients. Communication is very important when dealing within infertility and this staff is phenomenal.

Dr. Lin tends to be difficult to communicate with. He can be very difficult to understand and I don’t feel that he explains things throughly. I often leave there feeling like I have tons of questions. After he does my ultrasound I meet him in his office which usually consists of him scratching out a script and mumbling something about what he is giving me.... I only did two rounds of IUI with Letrizole. I tried the clomid and it made my body grow cysts on my overies. Ultrasounds were done once a week to monitor my follicle growth. And when he thought my follicles were big enough he would prescribe the trigger
I think the clinic runs very smoothly, I never wait very long for my appointment, the staff is all very nice. Everything is very clean and it’s a calming environment. It was difficult to get a copy of my lab results from them and I had to make multiple calls and said it would take a few weeks, which was frustrating....I haven’t had too much interaction with the care coordinator but when I have she was a little short with me. I felt like she didn’t like what I had to say and was acting a bit out off. I will say that I love the nurse practitioners,

I only did two rounds of IUI with Letrizole. I tried the clomid and it made my body grow cysts on my overies. Ultrasounds were done once a week to monitor my follicle growth. And when he thought my follicles were big enough he would prescribe the trigger shot and do IUI 36 hours later. I got a paper with all the detailed directions and times of everything.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Paula)
I haven’t had too much interaction with the care coordinator but when I have she was a little short with me. I felt like she didn’t like what I had to say and was acting a bit out off. I will say that I love the nurse practitioners, I feel like I can talk to them, they listen and there is great communication. I often request to see them for ultrasounds because they are easier to communicate with and at this point they can do everything the doctor can.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Fertility Center.
I think the clinic runs very smoothly, I never wait very long for my appointment, the staff is all very nice. Everything is very clean and it’s a calming environment. It was difficult to get a copy of my lab results from them and I had to make multiple calls and said it would take a few weeks, which was frustrating.
Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
Ultrasounds are $165. The actual IUI procedure $375. Trigger shot $100. Pregnancy blood test $99.

At first Dr. Lin and I didn't hit it off. I ask a lot of questions and I don't think he was ready for that. But I was going to him for his expertise, not bedside manner. However, after getting to know him and he getting to know me, we totally gelled. I saw him at every single visit (which I see is a luxury now that I've moved and have been being monitored by another RE) - he did my ultrasounds and always had a consult directly after. I felt really taken care of there and felt like I got what I paid for because I got to see my RE so much. He explained everything in great detail, using technical terms, which I appreciated, so I could look up exactly what he was saying later on at home. He tried to make pleasant conversation based on non-sensitive things he knew about you, i.e.... work, family etc....
Paula [a nurse at Reproductive Fertility Center] was awesome... she worked around my crazy work travel schedule. Where I wish she'd been more diligent was remembering what medicines I needed. Sometimes she'd call on something last minute that she remembered and because I travelled a ton, I'd have to have it called into a random pharmacy in whatever city I was in for work. The staff there is very nice. I've never had a bad experience with anyone. The girls who take blood are the best too. They get it right the first time everyone and it doesn't hurt.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Set the groundwork for what type of patient you are. Do you want to know everything, or will you just trust him? That way you'll both be on the same page. He can also be conservative, but not unreasonable.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Dr.Lin gives out his cell phone number and answers on the first or second ring after 6PM. He will also text you. He remembers personal things about you and uses them to make conversation or jokes every time he sees you. My nurse Paula was incredibly attentive and worked around my crazy work travel schedule every time. I moved to Tampa, FL for work during my first transfer and they checked on me everyday. They also continued my care with my second transfer which I did with them as well.
Describe the protocols James P. Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I first did Clomid (50mcg) with timed intercourse. That didn't work. Then we did an IUI with same dosage of Clomid - didn't work. After that I told him I didn't want to waste anymore time or money on IUI and Clomid, so we moved on to IVF. For my egg retrieval, I was on Gonal-F and Menopur. I was also diagnosed with a low thyroid, so 50mg levotyroxine. That protocol produced 12 eggs with 10 mature 8 fertilized 5 biopsied and 3 healthy blastocysts. He found a polyp in my uterus that cancelled my first FET and I ovulated through my second FET so on the 3rd time, he added Lupron to my cycle and was taking Lupron, Progesterone in Oil, Endometrin, Folic Acid, Pre-Natal and Levothyroxine. This cycle we transferred 1 perfect XY blastocyst and resulted in miscarriage at 8 weeks. The cycle I just ended used the same protocol as mentioned above + a pre transfer Endo-Scratch and Heparin for anti clotting since I'd had the previous miscarriage. This cycle we transferred 2 XX blastocyst and are currently 11 weeks pregnant with twins.

Strengths - expertise, hours of operation, flexibility to schedule, cost, dedicated nurse, track record Opportunities - Dr bedside manner (at first), billing organization
Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
I can't remember, but I believe we paid about $12,000 for everything.
Describe James P. Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Fertility Center.
We chose to transfer the strongest embryo first which happened to be my girl. That resulted in miscarriage. This time around, we chose to transfer the two boys knowing we wanted twins. Dr.Lin was in agreement that I was a good candidate for a multiple gestation pregnancy and agreed to transfer both.
What specific things went wrong at Reproductive Fertility Center?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Reproductive Fertility Center.
I've had a few times where my results were never called in to me and when I became an out of town patient, sometimes there were communication breakdowns.

For our first IVF cycle he [Dr. James Lin] used two fresh embryos. He gave us a 75% chance of at least one baby. The attempt failed. Our next cycle we transferred the three frozen embryos, he gave us a 50% chance of success and we had twins. Our third cycle was five years later, we chose to put only one embryo in because we didn’t want twins again and it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Our final attempt we were going to use our last two embryos, one didn’t survive the thawing process so only one was implanted- we had a healthy baby girl.
I think the clinic [Reproductive Fertility Center-Irvine] is great! The staff is caring and knowledgeable. We chose to use them again for a second pregnancy even though it was over an hour drive because we thought it was worth it. I guess a weakness would be that sometimes Dr Lin ran late, and that was frustrating. He was always so busy.
How was your experience with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
He really cares about his oatients getting pregnant. He also cares about his statistical success, so for him to have good numbers we needed to get pregnant so he was invested for himself too. He gives the impression of being a work-a-holic, which made me feel like I was in good hands. He answered all my questions. He was patient. He has a good sense of humor. We had such a positive experience with him that we went back to him for our second pregnancy, even though we lived an hour away.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Choose him, he is great!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
He really cared and wanted us to succeed in having a baby. We both went to USC so we would talk about football. He seemed personally invested in us getting pregnant. He took the time to answer any and all questions we had. He gave us his personal cell phone number to call him if we needed to.
Describe the protocols James P. Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Wr had tried 2 cycles of IUI with another doctor to no avail. We did 1 IUI cycle with Dr Lin while taking Clomid. He said statistically if IUI doesn’t work by the third time it is unlikely to ever work, so we then moved on to IVF. I had progesterone shots and suppositories. The shots hurt a lot - even after I was done getting them, and the suppositories are gross - but none of that is Dr Lin’s fault. They were prescribed to thicken uterus lining to increase chances of implantation. There were shots to get my ovaries to hyperstimulate, which worked - I produced 14 egg. We did ICSI where he takes the best soerm and injects it into the best egg, the second best soerm into the second best egg, etc. I don’t remeber all the details, but his office gives out an easy to follow calendar which outlines which medications to take when. They also show you how to do the shots - they even drew on my with a Sharpie so my husband would know where to inject me. They give handouts with explanations for how to do everything. Dr Lin only transfers 5 day embryos, and for new patients he only does frozen embryo transfers because they have been found to be more effective.

Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
First time I think it was about $25k for egg retrieval, all the medications and doctor visits for two IVF cycles. We paid upfront for a two cycle package at a discounted rate. The second pregnancy was cheaper because we didn’t need to do egg retrieval since we still had frozen embryos. I don’t remember how much, but if I had to guess, for two frozen embryos cycles including medications and doctor visits, I would say about $11k.

Dr. James Lin went above and beyond for us...made sure to explain all our options in detail...took the time to listen to our concerns and I never felt rushed or like all our questions were bothersome. He personally called and checked in throughout the cycle. My 1st IVF round with him I became pregnant with identical twins...I unfortunately lost them due to preterm labor at 22 weeks and his compassion and sympathy during our next round when we were ready was remarkable. He always spoke truthfully even if we didn’t like the facts but he always had a plan.
The clinic [Reproductive Fertility Center] has multiple locations which makes it convenient for all those blood tests that will be needed...All the staff I encountered were extremely helpful and caring. Wait times weren’t long and you never felt rushed...They have payment options available...[nursing staff] became like family during that time. Very helpful and we’re always there for whatever was needed.

He [Dr. Lin] truly shows compassion while also being honest about your case. I saw him regularly which created trust between us and didn’t just feel like a number in the practice. ... The doctor has also been the one to do my scans and consults immediately after which is not the same at other practices. ... I was almost 41 so we decided to do embryo preservation over the past year to ensure I had enough embryos before transferring knowing my egg reserve would be diminishing.
Reproductive fertility center has been a great experience for me. I found the entire staff from front desk, financial/billing, nursing and doctor truly supporting me in this journey. I’ve gone through 6 egg retrieval’s here and will be transferring this month. ... The office stafff is so wonderful and caring. I don’t feel like a number in the office like I have in other practices. ... Paula [nurse] is amazing. So kind and caring. Super responsive as well!

After seeing Dr. Lin for the first time, I was almost 41 so we decided to do embryo preservation over the past year to ensure I had enough embryos before transferring knowing my egg reserve would be diminishing. I felt like over that time period he was really able to understand my body and learn what he needed to adjust for my cycles. I am doing my first transfer this month and feel confident that he has learned what will work best for me.

Describe James P. Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Reproductive Fertility Center.
Dr. Lin does prefer to single embryo transfers given risks of multiples pregnancies. I think you can convince him to do multiple embryos but he will definitely lay out risks.

Dr. Lin shows compassion while also showing his sense of humor, which I appreciate during this very depressing time. I have not seen the results I want yet, but will be continuing with Dr. Lin as I feel he is treating me as an individual, not a statistic.... He takes the time to make sure he goes over all options. I never felt as though he was trying to push treatment on me. He stays in the room until all my questions are answered.
I really enjoyed the nursing staff [Reproductive Fertility Ctr] at the Riverside and Irvine location, but was less than impressed with the diamond bar location. They were not as welcoming and very disorganized. They provided me with a urine cup that was for another patient.... I was an out of pocket patient because my insurance did not cover anything. They did their best to have my general doctor order what he could so that insurance would pay for what they could.

Overall, I think I paid about $500-$800, but that was spread out over the course of the treatment.

Dr Lin is extremely compassionate and optimistic. He explains everything he is doing and why. I felt complete trust. After having to switch to Dr Lin due to insurance I was hesitant but it was the best forced decision I could have asked for...1st and second cycles were 100 mg of clomid for 5 days. Third cycle I overstimulated on the same Dose. Fourth cycle 50 mg clomid for 5 days...The staff and Dr Lin always took their time answering any questions.
Strengths [at Reproductive Fertility Center]: clarity, optimism and friendliness of the entire staff. They were amazing at returning calls and answering any questions. The office hours were great too, I could often go before work and on lunch breaks. Very accommodating Weakness: billing coordinator changed in the middle of my time there which had a small delay...Paula, Cindy and Heidi [nurses] were amazing. I saw them for many baseline and ultrasounds since I decided to come on a lunch break and they made me feel so comfortable.

I saw Dr. Lin 2-3 times for consultation and ultrasound. Each time, I waited 2+ hours in the waiting room beyond my scheduled appointment time. Once I was seen by [him], the appointments felt rushed...[he] gave us a poor prognosis and essentially told us we would not be good candidates for IVF due to diminished ovarian reserve.
Extremely long wait times [at Reproductive Fertility Center] with no warning if the doctor is running hours behind. The office felt like a "lifestyle" clinic--big glossy photos of babies everywhere. It did not feel like I was being treated as an individual patient...I was seen 2-3 times at this clinic, and each time I had 2+ hour wait beyond my appointment time.

How was your experience with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
I saw Dr. Lin 2-3 times for consultation and ultrasound. Each time, I waited 2+ hours in the waiting room beyond my scheduled appointment time. Once I was seen by Dr. Lin, the appointments felt rushed. I was taking time out of my work schedule for these appointments and driving 45 minutes each way, so it was a massive inconvenience to experience such delays. Dr. Lin gave us a poor prognosis and essentially told us we would not be good candidates for IVF due to diminished ovarian reserve. I got the feeling that he did not want to attempt IVF on a patient with a lower chance of success because it might lower his success rates. We got a second opinion at a different clinic and had success on our first IVF cycle with that clinic.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
If you have diminished reserve, be aware that you may be dissuaded from attempting IVF at this clinic.

I think their biggest strength [at Reproductive Fertility Center] is that they have everything there in one clinic lab, ultrasound,semen analysis everything wich is very convinient. Also all the nurses, med techs, ultrasound techs are all very caring and professional especially the ultrasound techs tell you exactly whats going on with your ovaries, uterus everything...I have 2 coordinators and they always make sure to make me feel warm and always answer my questions or concerns and if not available and i have to leave a message they call back fast wich in this type of treatment is crucial

He [Dr. Lin] was always so open with me and took my questions seriously...He is always willing to answer them in a sweet manner & wants to make sure you feel comfortable...for transfer #2 we used all the same meds as transfer #1, but added in an intralipid infusion about 5 days before transfer. Then we added in the endometrin suppositories day after transfer along with lovenox injections in the belly. Once we got our positive beta test, we also did one more intralipid infusion.
This clinic [Reproductive Fertility Center] was very clean, very put together and always had things organized! I always felt a warm welcome from each of the staff members and they made us feel so comfortable every visit...Paula [nurse] was so sweet and always called me with any news to be given! She was so compassionate when she had to give us bad news and was so excited when she got to telling good news....
How was your experience with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Dr. Lin was very confident without being cocky! He was always so open with me and took my questions seriously. He always smiled and laughed with us, while staying professional. You can tell he truly loves what he does and would do anything for his patients! He was over the moon excited when our transfer worked and would always reply to my texts with all of my questions. I also freaked out at one point and thought something was wrong with baby because my nausea went away, and Dr. Lin had me in the next morning right away to check and calm my nerves! He’s truly the best and I would recommend him to anyone going through this emotional process!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
Ask all the questions you need! He is always willing to answer them in a sweet manner & wants to make sure you feel comfortable! I was very thorough and wanted to know all details of what was happening, what was next, how the injections worked and so on, and he was right there giving me all the details! Personally I love knowing exactly what’s happening and loved knowing how to explain it to family and friends!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center?
I felt like I was welcomed into a family father than just a patient! Every time I called or walked in to the office, the staff would use my name, mentioned that they got my Christmas card and how cute it was, and just always made sure I felt safe! They are just wonderful! Also they were so excited to finally tell us we were pregnant and the whole office was smiling and telling me congratulations when we visited!
Describe the protocols James P. Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We started with Follistim in the beginning but he didn’t see enough growth in my follicles, so we switched to menopur for timed intercourse. Then ovidrel for our ovulation injection 36 hours before timed intercourse. And started endometrin suppositories at that started the night the night after we tried. We also started on folic acid and Levothyroxine added to my prenatal vitamins early on, and continued throughout. We used high doses of menopur leading up to our egg retrieval, as well as Follistim, ovidrel & cetrotide the day before retrieval. After egg retrieval we did estrace & progesterone pills for our endoscratch & uterine lining check. Going into transfers, we started with estrace, then added progesterone in oil injections in the rear along with the azithromycin pack, methylpredisone pack & low dose aspirin about 6 days leading up to transfer #1. Day after transfer we started the endometrin suppositories again until our Beta test. This one unfortunately did not take. So we went into an ERA. ERA was very similar to the transfer meds. Then for transfer #2 we used all the same meds as transfer #1, but added in an intralipid infusion about 5 days before transfer. Then we added in the endometrin suppositories day after transfer along with lovenox injections in the belly. Once we got our positive beta test, we also did one more intralipid infusion. We continued progesterone in oil injections, lovenox injections, estrace, endometrin & folic acid throughout most of the first trimester and started weening off the meds around week 10, and will fully finish on week 13. (I think this is everything)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Reproductive Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Paula)

This clinic was very clean, very put together and always had things organized! I always felt a warm welcome from each of the staff members and they made us feel so comfortable every visit.

Iris and Meredith were both so relaxing and really calmed my nerves! So lucky to be apart of this wonderful team!
Describe the costs associated with your care under James P. Lin at Reproductive Fertility Center.
The cost was pricey but they were so good about offering a payment plan if needed. They also were well worth the money. I always felt like I knew it would work and I knew they were the team to make it happen! $19,500 for egg retrieval $3,800 for each transfer $700 for ERA $500 for intralipid infusion $110 for each acupuncture appointment Obviously some other costs were associated throughout the processes & also had medication costs which added up quickly. Don’t remember the cost for timed intercourse treatments. We paid for each individual appointment. $250 for blood work and ultrasound More or less depending on what we did each appointment.
