How was your experience with Jason Griffith at Houston Fertility Institute?
Dr Griffith is very good bed side manners, he seems like he truly cares. I feel like dr Griffith is a very good dr, but after 4 IVF and nothing from it, he seems to add more stuff that he recommends we should do and it's more money and we spent so much money, I'm worried we cant go any further. I switched from the Willow brook office because the staff at the Woodlands, one particular girl was very rude. A year later I went back to the Woodlands because it was a street down from my job. It seemed much better since they moved that girl from the front to the back.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jason Griffith at Houston Fertility Institute?
Great bed side manners
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jason Griffith at Houston Fertility Institute?
I felt like a human at 1st, but after so many visits and transfer I felt like a number, because I feel like it's more money each time, we spend so much and we get no break. Other companies will give you a free cycle after no live birth..Its like a lawyer who keeps taken your money and no results are coming out of it, just more money.

Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
Better staff over the years, weakness would be financial support especially for the ones that dont have IVF insurance. They should have a better IVF treatment plan that is affordable. Be prepared for numerous visits, it may become stressful but it's all worth it at the end.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Houston Fertility Institute.
I had requested for a second opinion at another office after my 2019 failed cycle. Houston fertility never transferred my paper work. I did go see the other dr, I pulled up my profile file work from Houston fertility for her to view, she looked over it and spent several hours reviewing it with me..the only alarming thing was she asked if I had PCOS why wasn't I on something to treat it while doing my transfer, she recommended glucaflage. Another incident at Houston fertility was when I requested for all my work they done on me to send in for a grant, the lady sent me a paper that showed my egg retrieval numbers incorrectly and the quality of eggs I used incorrectly..that scared me a bit. Just recently found out that the frozen eggs we have in storage, that the price is going up..very discourage because money is tight right now. Also I was recommended a ERA, was told my insurance covered it, that I only pay 200, come to find out I couldn't get my results because I owed 800! It took us 7 months to pay that to get my results and move further. I asked on my last transfer in Aug 2019 if I should test my eggs, dr Griffith said no..after the transfer failed he called and says he recommends us testing our eggs, my husband was furious. The cost would be 4500, we cant afford it, so now we are stuck wondering what next.
