Working with Dr. O'Brien was great. She is dedicated, passionate and very clear regarding expectation...I would not hesitate to recommend her. She was straightforward and clear regarding what to expect and made sure we were aware of all of the potential variables that factored into the decision making process. It is helpful to educate yourself about the process and leverage Dr. O'Brien's expertise. Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions.
the billing department, and admin staff [at Shady Grove] treated us like a number. We were often overbilled without explanation...Our nurses were great...we have had a positive experience. However there were occasions where the admin staff provided information that was incorrect. For example we received a bill for storage costs for a frozen embryo. This was a shock to us as we did not actually have any embryos that were able to be frozen.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. O'Brien is a very competent doctor. We haven't gotten the results we have hoped for, but we're still in it. I'm still waiting on a call back for follow up treatment. I'm hoping for a new strategy or new answers....They [the staff at Shady Grove] are compassionate, but I still don't feel like I get all the answers I want. I'd like more explanation as to why they did things and how to strategize a new protocol for better results. Perhaps more testing, etc....My nurse is typical. Not overly compassionate, but helpful enough. I don't think she goes above and beyond, to her I think it's a job, but she is competent.
