How was your experience with Jeffrey Fisch at Green Valley Fertility Partners?
I found Dr. Fisch based upon seeing good reviews and his location was not far from myself. Those reviews were far from what I experienced and I feel like Dr. Fisch did nothing but to waste my time. I started to notice discrepancies and that people I knew going through treatment had done more basic testing to establish a plan of action. When I asked about running these basic tests, he deemed them unnecessary. When I ultimately consulted two other doctors they were shocked he refused to run such basic necessary testing to understand what issues they were working to overcome. He refused to try letrozole, even though I've now conceived twice on it with a different doctor (unfortunately both ended in loss unrelated to the letrozole itself). He wouldn't even utilize a trigger shot. He didn't want any bloodworm from my husband, just a semen analysis which I found problematic. We did so many cycles of clomid alone, even though he could see it was severely thinning out my lining so it would have been a miracle to conceive on clomid alone. I asked about adding baby aspirin or other options to help thicken my lining, he said they weren't necessary. He often talked over me and wouldn't hear my questions, just instantly shutting them down in an "I'm the doctor I'm right and I know more than you" type fashion. I was so frustrated and felt like so much time was wasted with Dr. Fisch. Other than he found I had a thyroid issue (which he didn't elaborate on or help with other than to say take this medicine) nothing came of our time with him and it was an absolute waste of time, energy, and money.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Fisch at Green Valley Fertility Partners?
Do not go here, he does not care about you as a patient and the pain you're dealing with with infertility.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Fisch at Green Valley Fertility Partners?
Dr. Fisch barely ever let me speak, he'd talk over me, ignore my questions and things I was curious to try, and just wanted to go straight to IVF. Other Drs after him let me try other things that did result in pregnancy but I did miscarry later on due to reasons unrelated to the treatment, ran basic testing that he refused to run, and were shocked by the treatment I'd received with Dr. Fisch
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Fisch used in your cycles at Green Valley Fertility Partners and their degree of success.
All he would try for me was clomid, no trigger shot, nothing else added, even though clomid greatly thinned my lining. He refused to try anything beyond this and said since I still hadn't conceived IVF was my only option
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Some nurses, like Amelia, were very kind and gracious. Others were cold and callous. Once a nurse (I didn't catch her name) called with my blood results, she didn't say if I was pregnant or not, so when I asked just to confirm she LAUGHED and said "No, you're not pregnant." The treatment process is enough and infertility has been absolutely devastating, I didn't need the extra laugh that I hadn't conceived.
Describe your experience with Green Valley Fertility Partners.
Just don't use Green Valley Fertility, he only wants to do IVF, so just look elsewhere first for a more thorough look into your specific issues. I would never recommend anyone to this particular clinic, I know many go here because he tends to be cheaper for IVF, but you get what you pay for.
