Be patient. She is very thorough and does her due diligence in testing and analysis prior to starting fertility treatments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jenna McCarthy at IVFMD South Florida Institute For Reproductive Medicine?
Been able to get to know the staff at the clinic. Typically staff and Doctor are easily accessible and quick to respond to inquiries, concerns, etc. After 2+ years going to this clinic, we have been able to forge relationships with most of the staff. Also, there is very few turnover of staff which is nice. Relatively small office with 2 doctors and appropriate staff so it’s not a huge practice where you see different doctors each time.

Strengths are their fabulous doctors, clean facilities, wonderful staff and accessibility. One weakness I would say is that they could improve on the education they provide patients on the whole process and medications

Dr. McCarthy is fantastic at communicating and relating with her patients. No question no matter how small was ever a dumb question. She has come in after hours to see me and cancelled her entire day to perform emergency surgery on me. Her knowledge and experience is a pristine. She is confident but not overly confident in her abilities...all of my FETs I was on a long lupron protocol in order to give my lining extended time to grow. I was also on viagra for my lining with FETs in addition to the PIO, DelEstrogen, Estrace. Once I became pregnant, I started Triple Progesterone treatment as it has been shown to help those with RPL.
