She [Dr. Dorsett] did not come off as rushed, rude, or annoyed by questions. She explained the plan she came up with based on our situation and explained the "whys" as well. I've only interacted with her face to face once though- at the initial consultation.

How was your experience with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Dr. Dorsett is an older lady and very nice. She did not come off as rushed, rude, or annoyed by questions. She explained the plan she came up with based on our situation and explained the "whys" as well. I've only interacted with her face to face once though- at the initial consultation. She does see patients face to face after the initial meeting - I just think it depends on what you are having done. She had to leave me at the end of our appointment to go perform an egg retrieval. Overall, the interaction my husband and I had with her was pleasant. In my particular situation, I am doing mini stim cycles - and the nurse is the one that implements the plan/who I see when I go to the clinic for scans/answers my questions.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Expect that you won't see her every time you go to the clinic; however, don't worry. Her staff and nurses are excellent! Bring any previous information you might have - they will put a copy of it in your file.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Dr. Dorsett really took her time with my husband and me during our initial consultation. She went over all of my history and came up with a game plan that she explained VERY well - in detail. After your initial visit with her, you will mostly see the nurse for subsequent visits. This hasn’t bothered me to much as the nurse and staff are very personable and nice.
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
In my case, I was diagnosed with PCOS, low progesterone, and do not regularly ovulate even though I have 11-12 cycles a year. The plan we came up with is this: come in for a baseline scan on any of the cycle days 1-3, take Femara/Letrozole (makes eggs grow) cycle days 3-7, have a scan to check egg growth, if egg is big enough (18-22) take trigger shot (to ovulate), have timed intercourse, then start a progesterone supplement. For every possible subsequent cycle we would take steps to be a little more aggressive - such as adding a follicle stim shot with the Letrozole or increasing medication dosage. This is what we would do for the first three months. The next three after that would replace timed intercourse with IUI. After that, the nurse told me Dr. Dorsett would like to reassess me and look into doing more tests and coming up with another plan. So far my results are this: I responded well to all the medications in my first month (grew a great egg, ovulated with trigger shot based on blood draw to check progesterone levels), however; a blood hcg test showed no pregnancy. I had to skip the next month unfortunately because the dates that I would have needed to have scans done fell during the holidays. We will start again with round two whenever I start a new cycle again.
Describe your experience with your nurse at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock. (Assigned nurse: Alex)
The nurse assigned to me is Alex and she is phenomenal. She herself has gone through infertility treatment at this very clinic, so she understands on a personal level what you are going through. She answers all questions and is very nice. When asked, she explains what she is looking at and why, whenever she does scans, orders meds, etc.
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
The clinic itself is on the third floor of a bank, but is not hard to get to. It is located not far from a major hospital in town. A strength would definitely be the staff. They are all very nice and willing to help/answer any questions you might have. The front office ladies are so sweet and will talk to you like they've known you your whole life. The waiting room is nice and cozy. The room you have your initial consultation is very comfortable - with big chairs and a table for you all to sit around. So far I have not discovered anything I would call a weakness.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
$660 for initial consultation & baseline scan, $282 for every subsequent trans vaginal scan (I've had three for one cycle). Medications cost: Letrozole ? but less than $10, Ovidrel (trigger shot) $107, and Progesterone $40. Plus $15 shipping for the medications. Total out of pocket expense so far is: $1,678. For the next cycle we are adding a follicle stimulation shot (gonal-f) which will cost around $450. This means for our next round, if we only have to have a base line scan and one other scan to check egg growth (and not two) it will cost us: $1,186. I don't know how much blood work costs because I am in a situation where it is covered, but if it isn't for you, that is something to be figured in as well. I had a blood test to check my progesterone after 10 days then a basal hcg a week after that.

She [Dr. Janelle Dorsett] was able to explain things well to me. She was very open an honest with me and helped in making the best decision for me and my family. She didn’t really beat around the bush when it came to moving forward with treatment. She was good at weighing the pros and cons and allowing me to make whatever decision was best for me. She was very encouraging throughout the process and I felt like we went on a journey together.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Don’t wait for her to lead you down a osh but ask very direct questions to get all the information you need to then make the best decision for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
The people in the office, including Dr. Dorsett remembered me and I felt like they were invested in me and my life. They were so happy for me when I got pregnant and then they were so comforting when I went back to the office after losing my twins.
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
We went forward with IVF due to my age and medical conditions. Monitors egg growth through ultrasound and adjusted meds based on growth of the eggs. My body was responding very well, so they had to keep adjusting the meds and lowing the dosages. They did a very good job of monitoring and adjusting leading up to the egg retrieval. We were able to do a live transfer since my body recovered well after the retrieval and then took a pregnancy test two weeks later.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I loved everyone at the office. They were so caring and compassionate. I felt very cared for and like I mattered to them.
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
I feel that the communication is very good at the clinic and everyone there is very compassionate and caring. From the minute you walk in you are greeted with a smile and such a friendly disposition of Stephanie. You then have the nursing and medical staff who genuinely care about their patients. They communicate via email and phone to make sure you know what is going on from start to finish. I felt free to ask questions whenever needed and they never made me feel bad for all the questions I asked.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
I think that the IVF cycle was around $9,500 withoutbthe cost of medication and that covered everything from the initial appointment to the transfer. Medications were an addition $3,000 and I ended up with a decent amount left over since my body had responded so well to the medication.
Describe Janelle Dorsett's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
My doctor was very candid in telling me that if I wanted to transfer two she would transfer two but typically she would recommend only transferring one. After I lost my twins, she recommended only transferring one the next time I go through a procedure.

She [Dr. Dorsett] drew us pictures and explained all the processes that we were about to embark on. She explained the risks and also the unknowns of the process and how every body is different and that she would be very involved in the progression of our infertility journey.... According to my own log flow and ovulation indicator and a bloodpanel it was clear that while I had regular cycles, I was not ovulating. I am 32 years old and had never had any cysts or complications that I knew of. Dr. Dorsett explained the follicle growth cycle and their plan.

How was your experience with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Dr. Dorsett does not look like what I thought she would look like. She is older and doesn't flaunt her obvious success. She dresses comfortably and is very clear in her demeanor. She met with us in a nice room, not a sterile exam room. She drew us pictures and explained all the processes that we were about to embark on. She explained the risks and also the unknowns of the process and how every body is different and that she would be very involved in the progression of our infertility journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Make the appointment now. She is very sought after and there is much to do prior to your first consultation and the wait can be long. Once you are a patient, the Dr. will surprise you and you will gain a lot of information based on her expertise.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
After two years of trying and one OBGYN appointment that resulted in terrible male infertility news we sought a specialists help. Every step of the way we have been treated with respect and care. All the nurses know my name and are available WHENEVER a question arises. They are hopeful which gives me hope. I could not go through this process without such a friendly and encouraging team behind us.
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
According to my own log flow and ovulation indicator and a bloodpanel it was clear that while I had regular cycles, I was not ovulating. I am 32 years old and had never had any cysts or complications that I knew of. Dr. Dorsett explained the follicle growth cycle and their plan. I would come in on my next period and do a baseline ultrasound. All was well. I was prescribed Femorah 2.5 mg for days 5-9 and 1 shot of Gonal RF 150. I went back on day 11 for another ultrasound and had two follicles but were no where near ready even with hormone injections. They decided to try 5 more days of 75mg injections with another follow up ultrasound on day 16. I am one day from that ultrasound. They were not happy with my growth or lining and are considering a different protocol for my next cycle as it seems my body isnt responding to the hormones. They ordered bloodwork on day 11 and will have more blood drawn to check levels depending on the results tomorrow.
Describe your experience with your nurse at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock. (Assigned nurse: Amy )
Amy is truly amazing. We email weekly and she is always a bright spot in my journey. She keeps me up to date on my results and any changes in my plan. It is such an emotional journey but she keeps my hopes up and reminds me that our bodies are a huge unknown but that they are working diligently to understand it and I full heartedly believe her!
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
The first thing I would mention about the clinic is their website. It is VERY informative and easy to negotiate. All the documents needed for the initial appointment are there and additional information is also given for financial aid and questions to ask your insurance providers. I felt like so much was explained there that I was comfortable with the process before I even called. I will say that they are very busy and it took us over a month to get our first appointment. After that we have been able to easily schedule our follow ups but I have heard that the wait for IVF, which we havent been referred to yet, is 3-4 months. One needs to be prepared for not all the answers, since this is science, but to rest assured that you will leave with more information about your body and its better than not knowing anything!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
Our insurance does not cover any infertility care. The initial appointment was $300, plus a sperm test for my husband, $180, and the initial ultrasound which brought our total to $660. We also travel 3 hrs each way to the office, so that cost adds up as well. The medicine we needed to order was about $1000. All costs are paid at the time of the visit. I pay about $250 per ultrasound, cash for hormone bloodwork $69 and it will be another $400 for the IUI procedure. This is just for one round as we have experienced.

How was your experience with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
I'm an RN who works closely with many physicians. So my view on patient and physician communication is probably a bit biased. I feel like Dr. Dorsett and my communication styles are different, I find that we interrupt each other frequently. I want to be able to tell the whole story of front her have her listen then answer (and visa versa), but she seems to prefer to answer and ask questions one at a time. She has been open to discussing all of my question or concerns about treatment options.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Do your research about treatment options and write down any questions to ask. Be prepared to wait prior to appointments. Although it can be frustrating to be in the lobby for a while, I feel that shows she is in high demand. Don't be afraid to advocate for yourself. Dr's aren't mind readers and they don't know everything, even in their field of expertise.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
My husband and I have met one on one with Dr. Dorsett on several occasions. She answered all questions or at least attempted to answer all questions well. The appointments did not feel rushed.
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
After initial consultation (interview, pelvic ultrasound, recurrent loss labs), I was scheduled for a diagnostic laparoscopy and hysteroscopy - suspected PCOS, endometriosis, possible uterine septum, and polyps. I was diagnosed with PCOS, endometriosis, and MTHFR. MY plan of care included using Femera to move up my ovulation date (suspected decline of eggs due to late ovulation) and progesterone suppositories after confirmed ovulation. I haven't yet started my 1st medication cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock. (Assigned nurse: Alex)
I have not had much communication with my nurse outside of email. She will be managing my care (ultrasounds and scheduling labs) at the start of my 1st medicated cycle. So far, she is very responsive and answers questions quickly.
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
All the staff are friendly and helpful. The office is clean and organized. Because this office is located in Lubbock near Texas Tech University, Dr. Dorsett frequently had medical students shadowing her.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
The initial consultation was $800 out of pocket (I had brand new insurance and hadn't met deductible). I paid $3,000 deductible for surgery and related expenses. I haven't yet started my medicated cycle, and am not quite sure what cost will be associated as my deductible will start over as of Jan 1st.

When we first met with her [Dr. Janelle Dorsett] she laid every option out-endo diagnostic surgery, mini-stimulation IUI, and IVF with success rates for each. After some thought, we started with a supped-up IUI. The first month they found a cyst. Treated the cyst and tried again the next month. Meds + injections. Due to my tilted uterus, she adjusted the catheter and had a trial run to make sure there would be no issues that might damage the sperm they were using. She recommended surgery for diagnostic endometriosis early, but put the decision in our hands.

How was your experience with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Janelle Dorsett is extremely intelligent and takes her work seriously. Compared to people who were treated by her previously (4+ years before us) it became apparent her mannerisms with patient interactions had changed
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
Be prepared to ask a lot of questions to comprehend
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock?
We never felt like a number with Dorsett’s nurse. However, compared to the new RE we see now, Dorsett’s financial manager never gave us tips or suggestions to assist us with medications or insurance coverage. Dorsett herself scientifically explained everything which was great until we got to treatments that were more difficult to understand. We could tell she was scientific mind, and we are scientific too. However, during a process that is already emotional to be going through, needing to understand everything is crucial and we did not always feel like she explained her medical terminology to us in ways that were easy to understand to people outside the fertility field
Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
When we first met with her she laid every option out-endo diagnostic surgery, mini-stimulation IUI, and IVF with success rates for each. After some thought, we started with a supped-up IUI. The first month they found a cyst. Treated the cyst and tried again the next month. Meds + injections. Due to my tilted uterus, she adjusted the catheter and had a trial run to make sure there would be no issues that might damage the sperm they were using. She recommended surgery for diagnostic endometriosis early, but put the decision in our hands. After the failed IUI, we proceeded with the surgery which showed endometriosis. She took care of the problems the endo was causing and gave us 3 month times intercourse plan. After that, again, we could choose what level intervention to do next. We did another mini-stimulation IUI that failed. Repeated but my body did not respond to meds, so they gave me a round of birth control and told us to rest then come back when we were ready. By this time we decided to see another RE. Not because Dorsett is bad at what she does...we just felt it was time to move on
Describe your experience with your nurse at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock. (Assigned nurse: Amy Conn)
We nicknamed her Awesome-Nurse-Amy because of our stellar treatment with her. She explained everything to us, repeated anything we asked and helped in a couple of emergency situations and was always quick and timely with responding to our concerns
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
Clean clinic and relatively fast. Staff WE interacted with was good, however, most are no longer in the office. Previous staff mentioned to us to ask for help or work with before we saw Dorsett we also no longer in the office when we started treatment
Describe the costs associated with your care under Janelle Dorsett at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
Costs were expensive at each appointment as infertility is not covered by insurance. Services shared with us for meds were out of state, so insurance could not help cover the meds. Amy Conn tried to push referrals to our pharmacy insurance, but the company was back-ordered and still to the day (despite no longer using CFRM) has not been filled by our pharmacy provider

First and foremost she [Dr. Dorsett] explained everything and wrote it down for me. There was not one thing left out. She was friendly but told me the truth not what she thought I wanted to hear or what would earn her more money.... She is "old school" This was her term. She believes in older methods but has the numbers to back her up.... My blood work came back showing I have the MTHFR gene mutations, low thyroid and an extremely low AMH. After talking with the nurse we are going straight to IVF. So we will begin this month.

She was friendly but told me the truth not what she thought I wanted to hear or what would earn her more money. She is the 4th doctor I have seen and she has already diagnosed me with 4 things that have never even been tested for.

We had decided to try another IUI up until yesterday. I would be using menopur, cetrotide and novarel. My blood work came back showing I have the MTHFR gene mutations, low thyroid and an extremely low AMH. After talking with the nurse we are going straight to IVF. So we will begin this month.

Her bedside manner wasn’t very warm....She [Dr. Dorsett] never remembered who I was in seeing her for 2 years....I was on a very generic IVF protocol my first cycle which worked fairly well. Of the 4 embryos three were transferred... The first two resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Then we did miscarriage bloodwork. I wish we’d done that before the cycles....She also did not give any reason that she was switching from frozen or fresh transfers after we asked.

Describe the protocols Janelle Dorsett used in your cycles at The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock and their degree of success.
I was on a very generic IVF protocol my first cycle which worked fairly well. Of the 4 embryos three were transferred at 2 different times. The first two resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Then we did miscarriage bloodwork. I wish we’d done that before the cycles. My second IVF protocol was changed (meds were increased) which didn’t result in more Follicles but she did retrieve them after only 5 days of stims. The result was only 2 embryos and after a fresh transfer, negative pregnancy test. She also did not give any reason that she was switching from frozen or fresh transfers after we asked.

I got pregnant on my own shortly after I started seeing her [Dr. Janelle Dorsett] and had a miscarriage. She was so comforting and empathetic and shared her own miscarriage expirience with me. She was always hopeful without being unrealistic, which is what I feel I needed in a doctor...I took Femara, Ovidrel, and one other injection that I cannot recall the name of...Trust her and her process! She knows what she’s doing.

Amy, and all the other nurses, knew me by name and were always so nice. She was exptremely hopeful and supportive!
Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Medicine of Lubbock.
The only negative I would say is the wait sometimes. But for a small clinic it is expected. Other than that, everything was great about the clinic. It is clean but almost warm feeling. The place is sort of hard to find but when you’ve been there once it is easy to remember, plus if you can’t find it they explain it well over the phone.

I do not remember the cost.
