How was your experience with Jay Bolnick at OB/GYN Associates of WNY?
Dr Bolnick explained things fairly well at consultation and when we proceeded with IVF The retrieval went smoothly. I was disappointed that we only had 2 embryos frozen out of 13 retrieved and were unable to do a fresh transfer. When I returned to the office for baseline testing, there were issues with lining thickness and I was unable to go forward with frozen embryo transfer for 3 months in a row. I attempted to address the issues and figure out what we could do to move forward and got no response in several occasions from the dr or nurses
