[Dr. Bromer has an...] Excellent bed side manner, treated me as an individual and not a statistic, always made himself available to talk and address questions/concerns, never rushed us, always laid out the pros and cons and set expectations, compassionate and wanted to see us succeed as much as we wanted to succeed. He was a gladiator for us, helping us to fight our way through infertility. I could not imagine having such success with anyone else.
If there is any weakness at all [at Shady Grove - Hagerstown], I'd say the wait time in Rockville for monitoring during the week. It gets pretty busy, and they tend to run behind there. A modest price to pay for success though!...[Nurse] Toni was excellent! She was always communicating with me, even at 5:00 on a Friday evening she'd call to discuss questions/concerns. Between the first and second cycle, my menses never started, so labs were ordered. She noticed that my follicles were stagnant, no lead follicle, and asked Dr. Bromer if I could begin cycling again right away. It was on this secon cycle that I produced 9 eggs. She was always rooting for us and instrumental in our success...
How was your experience with Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility?
Dr. Bromer was amazing in every sense. Excellent bed side manner, treated me as an individual and not a statistic, always made himself available to talk and address questions/concerns, never rushed us, always laid out the pros and cons and set expectations, compassionate and wanted to see us succeed as much as we wanted to succeed. He was a gladiator for us, helping us to fight our way through infertility. I could not imagine having such success with anyone else.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility?
I've read a few comments about him not seeing patients during monitoring or procedures, but just because he's not there in person, he's closely monitoring everything and is actively engaged in your cycling. He always makes himself available to answer questions and address concerns. Personally, I'd rather have a doctor who gets results, rather than hold my hand during the monitoring or procedures.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility?
Dr. Bromer was so easy to talk to. We discussed both high and low stimulation protocols and made the decision to go with high stims. He layer out injection refining for me, but changed it periodically based on my monitoring results. At a previous clinic, the doctor was only willing to use 1 protocol and would not make any adjustments based on monitoring results,. I ended up having a cancelled retrieval at that clinic and a broken heart.
Describe the protocols Jason Bromer used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.
We did a high stimulation protocol. I started with estrogen priming and then Gonal F 450 and Menopur. The Menopur kept getting adjusted based on my labs. Towards the end of the cycle, I was giving myself 3-4 vial injections of menopur. I also used Ganirelix once the lead follicle hit a particular size. On this protocol, I produced 5 eggs on one cycle and 9 on the following cycle.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility.
My insurance paid for it, but I believe 1 round of IVF was about $10,000

My first IUI cycle [with Shady Grove Fertility] was canceled due to overstimulation so he cut back on the dosage of Clomid. He added injectable medications for IUI cycles after the oral medications resulted in negative pregnancy tests...For my FET I was part of a study and used vaginal progesterone with a positive result and a live birth...Dr. Bromer was very compassionate and took the time to talk and answered any questions we had. He didn’t make us feel rushed to get in and out of the office. He was very supportive after we lost our twins from our fresh cycle at 22 weeks gestation.
Everyone from the front desk receptionist, the nurses, doctors and those in the lab [at Shady Grove] were always very friendly and greeted us with a smile. Monday’s were always very busy days so you could almost guarantee there was going to be a little bit of a wait in the waiting room...Jeannette [nurse] was wonderful and very compassionate. She always returned calls the same day and was very helpful.
How was your experience with Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility?
I honestly can not think of any weaknesses for Dr. Bromer. He was always available when I had any questions and available through email when the office was closed. He was always quick to respond. Both my husband and I felt very comfortable being in his care. After our loss we went in to speak to him 6 months later and he truly cared and you could see him holding back tears.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility?
Don’t be afraid to ask him anything. He is very intelligent and shows that he truly cares about his patients.

My first IUI cycle was canceled due to overstimulation so he cut back on the dosage of Clomid. He added injectable medications for IUI cycles after the oral medications resulted in negative pregnancy tests. We had to do so many IUI’s due to insurance before we could move on to IVF. It’s hard for me to remember the medications for the IVF cycle, but in the end I had 4 blastocysts. For my FET I was part of a study and used vaginal progesterone with a positive result and a live birth.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Shady Grove Fertility.
Monday was a monitoring day and it got a little busy in the waiting area. We always tried to get an early appointment due to working night shift and going after work.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility.
It’s hard to remember the exact costs but I know the FET was $4,600 and we were part of a research study so the medications were free. Our fresh IVF cycle was somewhere around $10,000. My insurance at the time covered a large part of the medications.
Describe Jason Bromer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility.
My doctor strongly encouraged eSET when we decided to transfer two embryos. He went over all the risks of a multiple pregnancy.

Dr. Bromer always follows up with us even if he was not present at the visit. He has relayed information to us even while he was on vacation. He has called us personally even outside of his work hours to make sure that we were not worried or misunderstanding any information. He is compassionate and trustworthy and my husband and I have been very blessed to have him as our physician!...I do wish that it would have been Dr. Bromer who preformed the Embryo Transfer himself rather than a different doctor, However I certainly understand that this may not have been a possibility for him on the day that my transfer occured.
{re: Shady Grove] The donor egg billing staff was very rude with the exception of Jasmine who was phenomenal. Linda at the front desk seems often less than thrilled that you are there. The donor egg and gestational coordinator Leslie Polanco was not pleasant to speak with at all. She was rude over the phone on a number of occasions. She seemed consistently motivated to slow down the process and was often shocked at how quickly we were able to complete the tasks given to us. My husband, donor and myself all recall feeling like she did not want this process to be a success for us which was extremely discouragibg and highly unnecessary.

My nurse was awesome. Definitely compassionate and invested. I did at time feel that she may have had too full of a case load and for that reason there were times when we could not get in touch with her to review important details and this made us feel unprepared at times.

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy

  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility.
We were seemingly always down to the wire rushing around to make sure medication was ready to be picked up etc. We did have to start a medication late due to medication not being called in on time. We had a sonogram although very early (because we had been misinformed by the Rockville office e to schedule our ultrasound what ended up being 1.week too early. The techs at our 5.5 week ultrasound seemed in constant disagreement with one another. I had to go to multiple different rooms to get two separate ultrasounds because it seemed like they did not know what they were doing. We were told that we may be having an ectopic pregnancy which we were later informed by our Dr. That this was not a concern. We had a very poor experience that day which was unfortunate because this was to have been a very exciting moment to see our baby for the first time. Instead we ended up leaving in tears unnecessarily.

Dr. Bromer called me frequently to update me on the progress of our embryos, changes in our treatment plan, etc. These calls occurred on weekdays, weekends...whenever I needed to know something, he was sure be in contact with us. He also listened to and supported our reasons for electing to transfer more than one embryo...Dr. Bromer explained our options thoroughly, answered any and all questions we had, let me vent when I needed to, and was overall extremely supportive. He encouraged genetic counseling, as well as testing of our miscarried baby in order to determine what had led to the miscarriage
They [Shady Grove] worked with my insurance, scheduled appointments at times convenient for me, and were very pleasant to work with... Shared risk IVF cost $20,000, and covered up to six fresh cycles of IVF....Alyssa was amazing. She communicated with us frequently, and conveniently though email while I was at work. She was compassionate, professional, and knowledgeable....The location was convenient to the Harrisburg area, and seem to have great success rates.
How was your experience with Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Dr. Bromer explained our options thoroughly, answered any and all questions we had, let me vent when I needed to, and was overall extremely supportive. He encouraged genetic counseling, as well as testing of our miscarried baby in order to determine what had led to the miscarriage, both of which provided us with some really helpful information.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Ask questions, and seek to understand your treatment. Dr. Bromer is an advocate of both, and will help you to make informed decisions.

Describe the protocols Jason Bromer used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia and their degree of success.
I truly don't remember the details of our fertility drugs, though I know I took Lupron both times. Our first egg retrieval yielded 8 embryos, only 2 of which were suitable for transfer. Though we achieved pregnancy, I miscarried at 8 weeks. At Dr. Bromer's suggestion, we had testing on the miscarried baby and learned that he had Klinefelter's syndrome. Our 2nd egg transfer we used ICSI. This also yielded 8 embyos, and though all had fertilized, most had done so abnormally. Only 2 were suitable for transfer. Dr. Bromer said that over two cycles our fertilization rate was on the lower end, and that it was possible that there was some undiagnosed factor impacting our fertilization, which we would want to explore should the cycle fail. Fortunately both embryos implanted, and we were blessed with boy/girl twins.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia. (Assigned nurse: Alyssa Bold)

Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
The location was convenient to the Harrisburg area, and seem to have great success rates. I know several couples who have successfully conceived with Shady Grove. They worked with my insurance, scheduled appointments at times convenient for me, and were very pleasant to work with.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jason Bromer at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
The consultation and diagnostics were covered by my insurance. Fertility drugs cost in the neighborhood of $2500 per cycle. Shared risk IVF cost $20,000, and covered up to six fresh cycles of IVF.
Describe Jason Bromer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
Our fertility clinic promotes eSET. However for a variety of reasons, we elected to transfer both of our embryos each time we did IVF. Dr. Bromer was extremely supportive of this decision. In fact, when the doctor performing my transfer questioned and even discouraged our decision to transfer both, it was Dr. Bromer's support that helped me stand firm in our decision and insist that both be transferred, as Dr. Bromer and I had discussed. Looking at both of our beautiful kids (born full-term after an uneventful pregnancy), I'm so glad we had Dr. Bromer on our side.

Dr. B [Bromer] was kind and compassionate with a delicate subject. He fully explained everything and answered all my many questions... I only saw Dr. B. during the beginning for consultation and to discuss test results. He did do my iui. I am guessing if my protocol was different I would have seen him more but nurses and ultrasound techs did all the monitoring...he calmed all my fears and created a plan I was comfortable with.
[Shady Grove] Very clean, wasnt too busy didnt have to wait too long for appointments, wonderful at drawing blood! My only negative is the billing was always confusing and hard to just get an idea of what my balance was to pay it off...His [Dr. Bromer] team fully supported me throughout the process and I was happy to have my care in hands...

Dr. Bromer was really helpful and caring about our situation. He has been always trying to find a better protocol for us... He shows a lot of compassion when our treatment didn't work, he called and made sure I was ok He is always prompt to sit down or call us to keep us update about the procedures...My two previous protocols he used Menopur, Follistim, ganirelix and I used endometrim. The first one my progesterone was too high and unfortunately the embryo did not stick. The second one we had one good egg and my progesterone were a little elevated, but he moved forward. Unfortunately did not work again.
Shady Grove Fertility Clinic, in general, is really good, all the staff is friendly and helpful. The 24 hs emergency calls are always answered and a nurse is prompt to answer our questions anytime. They always make a way to fit you in an appointment even last minutes one. Weakness: they are a little disorganized with appointments and sometimes paperwork...Toni [nurse] is very helpful always answer the e-mails right the way and if needed also gives me a call.

They always make a way to fit you in an appointment even last minutes one. Weakness: they are a little disorganized with appointments and sometimes paperwork.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility.
Nothing really went wrong, one time the front desk lady forgot to put my paperwork down and I waited over 30 minutes to be called. Luckily the nurses already knew me, they asked the front desk lady why I was waiting for so long and fixed it.

My husband and I really like him [Dr. Bromer]. He treats you like a person, not just a patient. He took the time to answer our question and went into detail about procedures. He also explained what our options are, for moving forward. ... He takes the time to answer any questions I or my husband might have. ... First we would meet for our day 3 appt. This appt. You do labs, and monitoring your follicles. If all is good, start the chlomid.
Strengths are that they [Shady Grove Fertility] are very compassionate to their patients. ... I would say that they are not very child friendly. Which seems odd because they are a place that promotes having children. ... My nurse was very kind and understanding. They like to move you around to different nurses a lot though.

First we would meet for our day 3 appt. This appt. You do labs, and monitoring your follicles. If all is good, start the chlomid. On day 11 or 12 come back for more labs and monitoring, if everything has reacted the way it's supposed to and all is ready to go, then that evening take the trigger shot and have intercourse. Two days later, come in for IUI.

Dr Bromer was very upfront with best course of action, how long we should attempt, and then next steps. He is compassionate and attentive. He understood fully why we were seeking treatment and has agreed to aggressively treat and test items at my request....He’s always answered all of my questions fully and has seen us for multiple consultations through the process...He is direct (at least with me) but I’ve also asked for that.
Clinic [Shady Grove] is very helpful and kind. Billing is mentioned - just be prepared at each appointment they use a portal which is good but test results aren’t loaded there. Overall great experience so far and would recommend...Communication lacks a bit. First cycle miscarriage had to skip a month for next treatment bc of miss communication...Dr Bromer was very upfront with best course of action, how long we should attempt, and then next steps.

I wish he [Dr. Jason Bromer] would have been more aggressive in our treatment and more proactive since we were paying out of pocket. After I had my first iui that was a terrible experience he stepped up and offered to do the procedure the next time...He is very personable and will meet with you to explain everything....The first two cycles of iui he recommended clomid and a hug trigger shot with progesterone after the procedure. When those two cycles did not work he changed me to letrozole which caused early ovulation and an unsuccessful cycle.
The staff is great at Shady Grove. The only complaint that I have had is the financial department. They do not return emails or phone calls. I have asked questions and they can not give any information....I currently love my nurse. She will email to check up on me. She is also very thorough and gives detailed directions...They had my appointment in the system but not for the right procedure. I also had a cycle cancelled for early ovulation that they did not catch with no refund or partial refund.

Began [with Dr. Jason Bromer] using Bravelle, Menopur, Estrace and others. I think this is normal protocol. Then we switched to Menopur, blood thinners, steroids, leuprolide, etc...He is wonderful! He explained every procedure. Would call us the day before, day of and day after to make sure we were ok or had questions...He has a beautiful bedside manner. He’s compassionate and listens well. He explains everything so that you understand. He and his wife have gone through the process. He’s just down to earth. No question is off limits. He remembers past concerns, etc.
I lucked out with both primary nurses [at Shady Grove]. They are wonderful...Only once was I not called with results and it was an honest mistake...They are very organized. You don’t always have to monitor there. Or you can monitor and other Shady Grove offices. They are thorough and welcoming. Nothing bad to say. I love it there. They do require monitoring appointments and I recommend making in advance

He [Dr. Bromer] made me feel like I was just money to be made at shady grove. He missed diagnosing me with endometriosis even though I had the symptoms and complained about a very specific pain. I had a second opinion and right away she found an endometrial cyst and said it appeared (based on my pain) that I had endometriosis.... He said since nothing was found wrong that IUI and IVF would be our only chance at getting pregnant.
Never saw the same nurses. Very impersonal. I always felt that I was bothering them [Shady Grove Fertility- Frederick]. My main contact nurse never seemed to care or show any compassion. The financial advisor was no help and was very hard to reach.... The nursing staff was very short and never seemed to care. The ladies that did the blood draws seemed the kindest.... Very expensive testing and procedures. IUIs were $1800 plus medication.

Dr. Bromer has done a wonderful job to listen and answer any and all questions or concerns we've had about ethical issues concerning our future babies.... He is very thorough and treats you with respect. No question is a dumb question and he is very compassionate. He has shown us over and over that he cares about our situation and desires to help us grow our family is the best and safest way possible.
My primary nurse [at Shady Grove] is not the most thorough with details but she is nice.... Expensive as we have no insurance coverage but the Shared Risk plan is helpful for IVF with a guarantee.... We wanted to start out slow with the least invasive options and work our way up to IVF, which we are now currently doing. He was patient and helpful to work through each phase and help us get the most for our money and time. We did 3 timed intercourse cycles with clomid and injectibles, 3 IUI's with injectibles, and now we're getting ready to start our 3rd IVF cycle with our last frozen embryo.

He [Dr. Jason Bromer] was very friendly and professional and interested in knowing what my goals were and discussing options with me on how to achieve my goals. It was nice to know that I would only have one dr rather than a series of drs manage my care...The staff [at Shady Grove] were warm and friendly and really encouraged communicating with them about any questions or concerns I might have...IUI was around 1800$, labs and medication were additional and my insurance covered some of that

Bromer was great but I rarely saw him. We interacted more with nurses. My assigned nurse, patty, seemed to be indifferent to my treatment. I was not pleased with my interactions with her at all.
I had good interactions with the rest of the nursing staff. Patty was hard to get hold of, barely answered my questions and never seemed interested in me, my husband, or what we were going through.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility.
The main issue was that my nurse was a terrible communicator. On several occasions I had to remind her to send me orders for scripts and procedures. We also had a donor flake out on a cycle. This was mostly the donors fault of course but my nurse was never great and letting us know what was going on.
