[Dr. Jerome Check] specialized in premature ovarian failure and he was one that looked at my numbers and didnt go right to donor eggs. He actually gave me hope and faith in conceiving and actually knew how to treat this terrible disease...Ethinyl estrodial which tremendously reduces my fsh and adjusted my hormones so that I would ovulate! Once my numbers got down they would put me on clomid or menopur or follistim injections to grow my follicles and then hcg trigger to release the egg.
Front desk staff [at Copper Institute for Reproductive Hormonal Disorders] was not the friendliest but the nurses made up for it. It was easy to get appts and they took you back pretty fast so u didnt have to wait long...I felt like a human being here and they didnt just get me in and out. They actually explained things to me and showed me what they were seeing. They had alot of appts so it was easy to get in. I actually had some success while being under his care!

Dr. Check can seem like an oddball. He is socially awkward and very brainy, but the care that I received at Cooper was wonderful. The nurses took time with me and never made the feel rushed. Everyone was warm and accommodating. Dr. Check was committed to finding out what was wrong and fixing it. If something was unsuccessful, it was evaluated and a new plan of action was created. I felt like everything was explained to me in a digestible manner.
I have been thrilled with the nurses at Dr. Check's office [Cooper Institute], both in New Jersey and Melrose Park, PA. I was disappointed to see that one of the ultrasound techs had recently retired because she felt like family by the time I graduated to my OBGYN.... My IVF with Dr. Check was significantly less expensive than all other clinics that I researched (less than $5,000, including medicines).

Don't be put off by your surroundings. Dr. Check has a unique style, which translates to all of his offices. He can come off as odd, but he is brilliant, passionate and committed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerome Check at Cooper Institute for Reproductive Hormonal Disorders?
I switched to Dr. Check after several years at another clinic that treated its patients with "heard medicine". Dr. Check was committed to finding a solution and to getting us pregnant. I felt respected, heard and cared for while a patient at Cooper.

He [Dr. Jerome Check] will transfer multiple embryos. He likes day 2 or 3 fresh transfers...he spends a lot of time educating you and seems to care...When he did my pelvic exam and also a pap test, I was alone in the exam room with him and didn't feel very comfortable. There wasn't a nurse with us which I felt was very strange. I would request that if you see him...He uses low dose injectable meds.
it is affordable [at Cooper Institute for Advanced Reproductive Medicine]. Prices are a la carte...They are busy and don't have enough staff to handle the load. They do not use a patient portal or much technology such as email. They seem to have good ultrasound equipment. No one followed up with me or called me back when I was ready to start my cycle so I was not able to start my cycle on time.

Doctor Jerome was compassionate and very understanding of my health and financial situation. But I wish he can communicate more clearly and look at risk factors more closely for each patient. I had success with him but since I was doing natural cycle, he should have looked more closely into my tubes and encouraged me for an HSG...All of my cycles I used ethinyl estradiol and provera/prometrium and regular monitoring. That is due to my high FSH. The cycles I ovulated they put me on Lupron shot progestrone and estrogen in the Luetal phase.
Clinic [Cooper Inst] is very busy. Receptionist is not personable. You have to be on top of things to get good care. You are responsible for your self. Do not expect to be spoon fed...[Nursing Staff] They are good.... They have lots of patients so it is hard for them to remember...I was treated like a human. Most of the nurses know my name, my case....[Cost Of Treatment] Very reasonable and they are very helpful.

He was very thorough and comforting and understanding and explained everything thoroughly. I really only dealt with nurses thus far my treatment was canceled when everything was shut down due to the covid-19 pandemic but from what I've encountered he's very nice warm thorough and makes me feel like he's going to try his hardest to make sure that I have a baby.

The building in PA is a little dated and could use some clearing out old artifacts possibly but other than that it was a clean. And we on our first consultation we were there for probably three hours versus a quick in and out it was very thorough and it was very long. But I guess that's what you get when you have someone who is thorough and takes their time to talk to you and explain everything
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jerome Check at Cooper Institute for Advanced Reproductive Medicine.
The IVF procedure would be like $4,000 the medication would be 2500 and because my insurance doesn't cover anything concerning fertility IVF diagnostic testing or medication I have to pay for my ultrasound and my blood work out of pocket which will be another $2,000 so that grand total brings us to maybe 9000 but if I have other embryos Frozen that'll be another $2,000 for about that gear I may be a year-and-a-half before I have another transfer

The first appointment [with Dr. Check] was just a consultation but I ended up getting so much done and even a diagnosis...I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and he prescribed me medicine to help with it. He prescribed me thyroid medicine for hyperthyroidism. My progesterone was low so I am on progesterone. Monitored me very closely. It is possible that my egg is not releasing so if pregnancy wasn't achieved this month I will have hcg injection next month...He took time with me and listened. He ran tests that I hadn't had done by another doctor and explained things well. He gave me a lot of research he had done on a drug that would help my endometriosis which made me feel well informed!
The [nurses at Cooper Institute for Advanced Reproductive Medicine] are so helpful and they truly care. They monitor you closely and are always easy to reach with any questions!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jerome Check at Cooper Institute for Advanced Reproductive Medicine?
I have been to another specialist that I felt didn't pay attention or monitor me enough and also didn't properly diagnose me. I felt that if you weren't doing ivf they didn't care about you.

Husbands sperm was check and it was great. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and he prescribed me medicine to help with it. He prescribed me thyroid medicine for hyperthyroidism. My progesterone was low so I am on progesterone. Monitored me very closely. It is possible that my egg is not releasing so if pregnancy wasn't achieved this month I will have hcg injection next month.

[Dr. Check] was very through and explained everything. Every visit was a good experience and I didnt feel like a number. It was a bit if a drive for me but worth the trip. I would reccommend his practice to others suffering from infertility like I am.... He was my 3rd doctor who told me I have PCOS. He wanted to try ovulation induction but my husband & I couldnt afford it....He was my 3rd doctor who told me I have PCOS. He wanted to try ovulation induction but my husband & I couldnt afford it.
I communicated with them [nursing staff at Cooper Institute] a bit. They were all lovely....Since I only had a consultation, I just paid my co-pay. However for the procedure we were reccomended it was around $4,000 per round.... Strengths would be Dr.Checks passion to help. He recorded the conversation and send me a cooy of it via email. I dont have any weaknesses to name. With every new patient everything can be overwhelming during this journey. I’d say relax because you’re in good hands.
