I wish that Dr. Norian could have spent some more time explaining things to us. And maybe that will come later during a follow up consultation if this is a failed cycle. ... I think there are somethings we just won’t ever understand about our fertility with DOR and a family history of male infertility on my husband’s side of the family. ... Dr. Norian was super busy, and I didn’t feel like he could spend time with us to answer questions. He was very rushed trying to get through patients.
There were two occasions I sat in the waiting room [HRC] for over an hour because they were behind. It’s tough to put up with this because I was working and had to make up my time at work. So waiting was stressful. I wish they would have notified me to come in a little later and that would have made all the difference. ... The laboratory nurse was pretty good about getting my blood drawn right away.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
I came in already having been treated elsewhere so my diagnosis was done outside of this clinic. I don’t feel that I learned anything new being under his care. He seemed to be a very skilled doctor from the times we met with him. The medical treatment was not unlike our other experiences.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Make sure to have your questions written so that when you get time to talk to the doctor you will not forget what you wanted to ask.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr. Norian was super busy, and I didn’t feel like he could spend time with us to answer questions. He was very rushed trying to get through patients.
Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
We did Gonal F 225mg and Menopur 225mg-300mg for 9 days. Novarel on day 10 and Cetrotide for 5 days. Doxycline a day before the retrieval for 5 days. We started a few meds a day after egg retrieval that included progesterone in oil, endometrin, estradiol, Medrol dose pack. I would have liked a rationale for using this protocol from the doctor but mostly the nurse would just tell me what we were doing with not too much explanation.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Deanne)
Deanne spent most of the time of our visit with us explaining medication and appointments. She also seemed to be rushed. I made about two phone calls to her and the call went to voice mail each time. It was best to communicate with her via email. The laboratory nurse was pretty good about getting my blood drawn right away.
Describe your experience with HRC Fertility.
I believe that this clinic does a fantastic job at what they do. I feel that our setbacks are because of our diagnosis or lack therefore. I think there are somethings we just won’t ever understand about our fertility with DOR and a family history of male infertility on my husband’s side of the family. There are just some people that have a higher success rate than we do. I wish that Dr. Norian could have spent some more time explaining things to us. And maybe that will come later during a follow up consultation if this is a failed cycle. Another weakness is that the clinic is so busy. There were two occasions I sat in the waiting room for over an hour because they were behind. It’s tough to put up with this because I was working and had to make up my time at work. So waiting was stressful. I wish they would have notified me to come in a little later and that would have made all the difference.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Norian at HRC Fertility.
Procedure was like $12k. Medication was about $6k.

Dr. Norian took an enormous amount of time to sit with, discuss, and teach my husband and I about the available options. I have never felt like a number or a paycheck for him. ... Aggressive IUI, hoping to turn into IVF since I started with only 1 follicle and a low estrogen and AMH level. ... He does every ultrasound and reviews results with you every time you go in. He answers questions in a knowledgeable but patient friendly way.
HRC is very professional and has a hands on approach with their clients. The wait time can be long, but it’s because they are spending valuable personal time with each patient. ... Deanne [nurse] has been my rock and saving grace through this whole process. She answered every phone call and email with compassion, expertise, and care. She consoled me when I was crying and disappointed, boosted me up when I needed it, and guided me through the entire cycle.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr. Norian has great bed side manners and spends every appointment with you. He does every ultrasound and reviews results with you every time you go in. He answers questions in a knowledgeable but patient friendly way. He is blunt and to the point, so he does not sugar coat anything which can be emotional but I appreciated so I did not ever have too high of hopes/positivity for things. I always had a realistic view of everything that was going to happen and what the possibly outcomes could be.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Ask ALL the questions and do not be afraid to speak your mind.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr. Norian took an enormous amount of time to sit with, discuss, and teach my husband and I about the available options. I have never felt like a number or a paycheck for him. I especially love my nurse coordinator, Deanne. She is amazing!
Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
Aggressive IUI, hoping to turn into IVF since I started with only 1 follicle and a low estrogen and AMH level. My protocol was Menopur 225 (3) and Gonal F 225 for the first 10 days. Was supposed to add Centrotide on day 6 if I had been responding well, which I wasn’t so we continued with the original dosage until day 8, but I am still not responding well. Continuing until day 10 and then deciding if we will continue with IUI or cancel the cycle.

Describe your experience with HRC Fertility.
HRC is very professional and has a hands on approach with their clients. The wait time can be long, but it’s because they are spending valuable personal time with each patient. I never was upset about this because I knew they would be giving me the same attention and care.

Dr. Norian is very honest and will definitely let you know how things are going. During my cycle leading to a retrieval I had to call him on weekends and at night and he was always there to pick up the phone. ... Dosages were adjusted as I went through the retrieval process. He was very careful not to over stimulate. I expressed my concerns regarding that matter.
The clinic [HRC] seems to have become more popular for this side of town. It is sometimes difficult to get appointments at a certain time. The nurses were good but sometimes they seemed stressed because they were short people. This clinic seems to be understaffed and would benefit of hiring some more nurses. ... Scheduling was a bit of a nightmare because you had to go in before 11:00 am to get blood results that afternoon.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr. Norian is very honest and will definitely let you know how things are going. During my cycle leading to a retrieval I had to call him on weekends and at night and he was always there to pick up the phone. After I was confirmed pregnant, I called him for a concern I had at 8pm on his vacation and he was quick to answer the phone and help. I would say one of his weaknesses is running late in the office. He has started to get more popular and the office seems more busy now, which causes him to run late with appointments. I still think it’s a good thing, because that means he doesn’t just rush you out of his office when you have questions or concerns.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Ask a lot of questions. Make sure to write down answers if you need it or have them email you information so that it is in writing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr Norian has always been very delicate and chooses his words wisely. He does not sugar coat anything but, he is considerate of your feelings.
Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
Dosages were adjusted as I went through the retrieval process. He was very careful not to over stimulate. I expressed my concerns regarding that matter. A previous doctor had over stimulated and then cancelled my treatment. He knew I was very worried about this happening and he always kept me up to date with dosages and provided reasoning as to why he was decreasing or increasing meds.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Michelle )
The care coordinator was helpful to an extent. I believe she is used for out of the country patients who speak another language. My difficulty with her was the language barrier. Often it was hard to communicate certain things to her because she spoke broken English. Although, she was hard to understand, she still provided as much help as she could.

The nurses were good but sometimes they seemed stressed because they were short people. This clinic seems to be understaffed and would benefit of hiring some more nurses.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at HRC Fertility.
Scheduling was a bit of a nightmare because you had to go in before 11:00 am to get blood results that afternoon. Ultrasounds were all done around the same time. If the time wasn’t available in afternoon you have to take off work and come during not so favorable hours.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Norian at HRC Fertility.
I went in months before my treatment and prices were going to go up. I ended up paying for treatment 3 months before. I paid a total of 18,800 to the clinic. Then another 3,200 for medication. Now the prices have been raised. I will be going back for more treatments.
Describe John Norian's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at HRC Fertility.
Dr. Norian is not a fan of transferring more than one embryo. He will of course do what you want, but does provide you with information why transferring more than one embryo is considered a high risk.

Dr. Norian from my experience would usually say like over all I’m pleased with the result when he checked my blood works, follicles. I also had a couple of blood work results that were a bit abnormal and he would point it out to me and prescribed me a medication and coach me on lifestyle changes that I needed to do. ... Sometimes or some tests he failed to give me feedback so that’s when I have to initiate and ask him things like what do you think of my husband’s sperm analysis result, how are my follicles responding to the treatment. I am still half way through my IVF process but I am pleased in general with how Dr. Noraian is managing my treatment.
Strengths: -clinic [HRC] is clean -most of the staff are courteous and friendly -wait time when I went for ultrasound/bloodwork was not bad at all Weakness -took me about a month to get a schedule for initial consultation -their main receptionist is not so courteous in person and during phone calls ... Their monitoring is in the mornings. Weekend monitoring is in another branch about about 30 miles away

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Do your research in advance if you can because Dr. Norian or even most doctors I think, don’t really give a detailed explanation of everything in the process and if they do you will most probably be overwhelmed while in the clinic. Also make make a list of the questions you might have for Dr. Norian and his team.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
I can tell that Dr. Norian is always really busy but he always managed to ask how I am doing. Although always briefly, but he makes it a point to explain his plan of care for me and informs me if my results are good or not.
Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
Birth control pills for about 2 weeks, then injections for about 10 days. Follistim, menopur. Ganirelix was added in the last few days. Trigger shot was lupron. Mood swings, fatigue and mild OHSS towards egg retrieval day and after were the side effects that I experienced.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Yes. Michelle)
My nurse coordinator always answered my calls and emails promptly. The only thing is she can be sarcastic when I clarify certain things about the treatment that I don’t understand.

Because of our prior IVF’s he [Dr. John Norian] was comfortable doing a multiple embryo transfer. He did explain that isn’t the norm for him but he does take in account your age and prior treatments...was very kind and treated me like a person. He explained what he was lookin for during each ultra sound. He made sure all my questions were answered...His bedside manner was nothing but great. I truly believe he treated me on an individual case. There was noting cookie cutter about his treatment plan. I’ve never felt that way with previous doctors.
All procedures take place at the Pasadena office [of HRC]. And Dr.Norian completes them before starting work in Rancho. So there were times I had to leave at 3 am. There was confusion both times I went to the Pasadena office because you arrive before the receptionist. I wasn’t sure where to check in. I ended up sitting in the waiting room and just waiting until they came out looking for me. When I went in for my transfer, they use another door and I couldn’t hear them calling my name. Finally about 20 min after my appointment time hey called me.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
He was the first doctor to get a positive result. During our treatment we had to cancel and start another protocol. While I was upset at first about this he took the time to explain the why behind the decision. He did give me he choice as a patient to continue the treatment without change but made sure I knew why he recommended the new protocol. His bedside manner was nothing but great. I truly believe he treated me on an individual case. There was noting cookie cutter about his treatment plan. I’ve never felt that way with previous doctors.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Dr. Norian has a large client base and it can take some time to be seen. Allow yourself extra time when visiting the clinic.

Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Michelle Chen)
Our nurse and I had a language barrier which made it hard to ask questions and understand what she was saying. Multiple times my husband and I left her office so confused. We had confusion on our medication order. When she placed our medication order she included medication for egg retrieval and FET. At first I was told we would do a greasy transfer so I wasn’t sure why she was ordering all that medication. After many back and forth I figured out that the FET medication would be needed in either case. In the end we did end up doing a FET after retrieval.

Dr. Norian took time to explain treatment options and seemed to genuinely care about our outcome. ... Dr. Norian was very knowledgeable, professional, and kind.

Dr. Norian was willing to transfer two embryos, but no more, per cycle as long the risk of multiples was understood.
Be prepared to wait well beyond your appointment time. The clinic [HRC] is very busy and even though you have an appointment with one doctor and two exam rooms they get behind fast. ...

Dr Norian was also comforting along with delivering the truth about my condition and treatments that would help us conceive. ... My Fallopian tubes are no longer connected after a surgery. Dr Norian suggested FET IVF and gave us all the statistics relating to it and said I’d be a great candidate but being that I’m going to be 35 soon we need to start right away. ...
As a whole they are amazing. From dealing with the front desk to the nurses to talking to dr and financial advisors. I never had any issues with anyone or anything with HRC Rancho Cucamonga. They get back to within a good time whether it’s emailing or calling. The entire staff is very professional as well. ... I really appreciate the empathic approach they have especially when infertility is a complete roller coaster of emotions.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
At first I was extremely nervous about what to expect from a fertility specialist and honestly expecting the worst outcome, that being that I won’t be able to have children with and without treatment. Dr Norian and his team put all those fears and worries to rest. The nurses are very comforting and friendly.

Dr Norian suggested FET IVF and gave us all the statistics relating to it and said I’d be a great candidate but being that I’m going to be 35 soon we need to start right away. He gave me an ultrasound which we found a small polyp and soo I was referred back to my OB to get that removed before we could move forward. We were able to remove it but unable to go back for treatment due to the fact my husband is military and was sent to Korea for a year.

My dr [Dr. Norian] is good with being analytical and to the point. Not very good with bedside manner....My cycles were constantly pushed back and moved because it didn’t fit the drs time table....At first we tried letrezole for the IU I, then clomid for the next one. Then we tried femera, my pinning wasn’t thick enough so that cycle was canceled. Then we went to ivf and under went the stimming process, then went to injectable progesterone and vaginal progesterone, I was also on levothyroxine...
I wish they [HRC- Rancho Cucamonga] had an online portal to check status of everything you were waiting on. Also it would make it easier to to reference when you had questions.... In the beginning it felt good, the nurses remembered me, they called me when they said they would and updated me when they said they would. Then a year went by and it was like I was forgotten. The staff changed and the dr was more rushed every time I spoke to him.
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
My dr is good with being analytical and to the point. Not very good with bedside manner. It’s a sensitive subject and sometimes you need to read your patients. When you are about to tell them they will not have a child on their own, it breaks them. This is regardless if ivf is the cure. We don’t look a ourselves as women anymore
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Make sure you have support from your SO. Do not expect it from them and make sure you ask a lot of questions, it for st matter how weird it sounds coming out of your mouth
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
In the beginning it felt good, the nurses remembered me, they called me when they said they would and updated me when they said they would. Then a year went by and it was like I was forgotten. The staff changed and the dr was more rushed every time I spoke to him. My cycles were constantly pushed back and moved because it didn’t fit the drs time table. It was heartbreaking. When he finally told me that I wouldn’t get pregnant without doing an ivf cycle I had a breakdown and no one seemed to care. I drove home while having a panic attake. My husband and I just want to have a baby, we knew it would be emotionally tough but we didn’t realize that we wouldn’t get support from our clinic. When we signed on for an ivf cycle we started hearing more from our nurses. After the 2nd transfer I started to bleed 4 weeks into it. After 2 hours I finally got a hold of a nurse who advised me to go on bedrest for the next 2 days. Regularless if I was going to lose them anyway, some urgency would have been nice. I definitely don’t feel important to them, and I don’t quite know what to about my next cycle.

We have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Norian. My favorite is that he is very intelligent, well educated, and up to date on evidence based practice and research. It’s important to me that I feel my doctor knows what he’s doing and is up to date on the best options. Next, he is caring. He takes plenty of time with us at each visit to answer questions. We feel that he is truly warm, compassionate, and cares about our success with fertility!
The office staff and nurses [at HRC-Rancho Cucagmonga] have been excellent. They are GREAT about communication and scheduling. I have never had to worry if they will get me scheduled in my range of cycle days for a procedure. They explain all the details to me, answer my questions, and are always friendly. With infertility being a sensitive and difficult time for many, it’s so important to have a positive and friendly staff to support those patients.

Dr. Norian has been excellent. He takes plenty of time to sit down and explain every detail without being rushed. He answers all our questions thoroughly, and you can tell he truly cares. He is empathetic and understanding regarding financial concerns. We feel like he truly cares about us as humans and not just another number. Very lucky to have found him!
Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
We are still in the process of our treatment - but are remaining hopeful and positive with the plan Dr Norian has layed out. We have both changed our diets and added specific vitamins. We have both received lab draws, an SA by my husband, and a U/S on me showing a threshold for PCOS. Metformin may possibly be added later. We have SGH scheduled followed by IUI depending on our results from above.

I do not know the specific costs of many items yet - but the staff is VERY understanding of financial concerns and help in any way possible. I am very thankful for that.

Dr. Norian has always been very friendly and professional. Always made my husband and I feel very comfortable...when he says he'll call us, he does...The one negative thing I can say about Dr. Norian is that he is always VERY busy. So sometimes when we are seeing him he is trying to get off to another patient, which makes it a little uncomfortable when you're asking a lot of questions, since my husband and I are fertility newbies. Overall, I really like Dr. Norian, which is why we continue to see him.
conflicting information was provided to us [by at nurse at HRC], but was immediately corrected. There was a time when perscriptions weren't called in, but it didn't effect my treatment, just the price, unfortunately...Strengths include cleanliness. Weakness is that on some days, although your appointment is at 9 am, you won't be getting out of the clinic until 1030 or 11. This is due to how busy the clinic is. It makes it difficult to plan for when you have to take time off of work to make these morning appointments.

Dr. Norian recommended two IUI attempts. If neither was successful, we would do IVF, which is what we are currently doing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Michelle)
I have a different coordinator for IVF, but am reviewing the coordinator I had for IUI. Michelle was very friendly. Unfortunately, she was difficult to understand while on the phone, in person, and though email. The language barrier was too difficult to overcome. She was very nice though. All the nursing staff at this clinic have been very friendly and compassionate.

Dr. Norian is kind and smart and was easy to talk to. He always addressed all of our questions with detail and patience. Dr. Norian explained all the options -- risks and gave his opinion on best course of treatment. In the operating room he was warm and made me feel comfortable even during a D&C. When any results become available Dr. Norian called himself and explained everything and made himself available for questions. He remained positive and was always optimistic. We have decided to switch Doctors/ clinics because in the end I did feel like he could have been more thorough and I believe things will missed and mismanaged.
We liked Dr. Norian very much, but his staff [at HRC] always seems overwhelmed.

I rarely felt supported and always felt like I was chasing them down. The nursing coordinator was responsive, but she was not the one managing my specific treatment/ care.

Dr. Norian was very patient each time he seen me. He knew my test results and what to do to improve my numbers at each visit. Explained things in details and answered all our questions. He did all my ultrasounds and explained my process. The appointment after my negative pregnancy test result he was very informative on the next step and the possibilities of what may have gone wrong. He was very honest with us in explaining that he too was shocked at the negative pregnancy test as well as the team.
Clinic [HRC] was very organized and never too crowded and never had to wait to long in the lobby... Everyone at the clinic was amazing even down to the receptionist. Everyone is very polite. Only negative response I have is the financing department, one lady out of Rancho office doing the financing. Horrible follow through. Never responded to my first few emails. Finally advised my nurse coordinator who referred me to someone else who is amazing.

Dr. Norian is really personable, but sees a lot of patients and is always in a rush.... Dr. Norian pays great attention to detail and is very thorough. His office is very busy, but he is very informative. I rarely had questions when I left. If medication needed to be altered, he would make sure the correct dose was prescribe even if it was just a tiny alteration.... Dr. Norian strongly recommended transferring one embryo in my situation. We decided to transfer two, and I could tell he didn't agree with it, but he didn't push the subject too much.
Overall this is a fantastic clinic [HRC]. They are very organized, detail oriented, and compassionate. There are a lot of patients that go to Dr. Norian, so wait times are longer and actual appointments are short. However, I think it is worth it for the service and care you receive. I would just advise to speak up if you feel that you are getting lost in the crowd.... I did not have as great of an experience with the nurses. The nurse I was assigned as my coordinator was hard to get a hold of.

I don't even know her name.

At my first blood draw, which I paid extra to have done at the clinic, the nurse forgot to do one of the labs. They then made me pay extra again to come back and have the blood for that lab taken. My nurse did not call to inform me how many embryos were fertilized. This is a small detail, but as an IVF patient I was not sleeping until I found out that information. Once, my appointment was not made, so I had to wait a little bit longer.

He [Dr. Norian] always answers all of my questions and is very cordial. My husband couldn’t make it to some appointments but he always said hi to him, even allowed him to FaceTime during ultrasounds...I loved that he was very clear in my chances, he told me the percentages of a pregnancy at my age and was very realistic. He is very knowledgeable and answered every question we had. Always recommended what was best for us in the end, we had some set backs and he was very thorough in explaining why things happened the way they did and would change my medications accordingly.
[The nurses at HRC are] Very nice and compassionate. The entire office is very professional...Love the office, feels like everyone is cheering you on to succeed. The office is busy and they keep it moving, also still take the time to use each persons name. Graduation Day everyone congratulated me and kept saying how happy they were that it worked!...My first transfer was canceled after my blood draw, he recommended we cancel and said I was ovulating, sure enough the morning I was supposed to have my transfer I started my cycle. I was very greatful he cancelled in the end. The next cycle he started me on lupron and prepared me for my transfer and it worked!
How was your experience with John Norian at HRC Fertility?
I loved that he was very clear in my chances, he told me the percentages of a pregnancy at my age and was very realistic. He is very knowledgeable and answered every question we had. Always recommended what was best for us in the end, we had some set backs and he was very thorough in explaining why things happened the way they did and would change my medications accordingly.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Norian at HRC Fertility?
Trust is most important, we always felt he was very knowledgeable and very clear that this was not 100%. He is going to develop best plan for you, the rest is up to your body.

When I had my first appointment with him I felt the connection instantly. I felt that he [Dr. Norian] really cared as a human and explained everything. I told him about my history and my husband. He explained everything step by step. He knew from the beginning that it could be a male factor. When we did testing everything came back normal for me. We found out that my husband had low Sperm count and he was right. I started my ivf cycle last month. I got 6 embabies from my retrieval and now waiting for my transfer.
I would say that it seems everyone [at HRC] works very well together. They make sure that you get everything that needs to be done before leaving your appointment. The only thing is that I would not refer one of the nurse...My nurse was not as amazing as Dr. Norian.

Dr. Norian was very knowledgeable. He advised my HSG XRay which turned out to be all clear. He also did an ultrasound and everything looked good there which was a relief. I felt better about me knowing I was oooking good in all the right places to get pregnant and start a heAlthy family with my husband.... I also appreciated Dr. Norian’s knowledge and PowerPoints.... He did the ultrasound. I got the order to get the HSG. My husband needed to get tested.
The nurse [HRC - Rancho Cucamonga] was SO hard to understand. I asked to speak to Dr. Nirain but she said he was too busy. I did not understand what she was telling about my HSG which was frustrating.... Strengths include cleanliness and not making you wait hours after your appt.... Weaknesses include lack in communication. It also seemed like they were automatically asking for money for treatments when I was just wanting a plan of attack.

Dr. Norian was polite, very knowledgeable, but I also felt like he had a lot of other things going on in the office, like his attention could not be 100% committed to my care. It could be more helpful if he were able to give more educational handouts on whatever diagnosis he had for my care because a lot of times I couldn’t remember everything he was saying. ... Dr. Norian called me once and basically just recommended IVF. I never heard back again afterwards, therefore I decided it would be best to go elsewhere where I felt more comfortable. ...
Results were not relayed in a timely manner. ... The office was clean. But I could tell by other patients there that having an appointment did not mean you would be seen in a timely fashion. Seems you would wait at least 30 min or longer in some cases. For me I had to wait 20 min for my first appointment for just a consultation ... ... The nurses [HRC] weren’t very helpful in getting information back to me, or asked me if I understood everything the doctor was saying.

Dr Norian has been a wonderful doctor. I see him every visit and he does every procedure himself. His dedication to his job and helping others is evident. Every morning he arrives at the Pasadena location to do surgery, egg retrieval's, and transfers. Directly after he leaves and makes it to the office by 8 AM in the morning. He works long hours and I have even had him call me after 6 PM. When I had many questions he either scheduled me for an appointment or spoke with me over the phone to answer all my questions. Unfortunately when I had a miscarriage, I was glad to have Dr Norian in my corner. He and his staff scheduled me for a D&C the next morning so I wouldn't have to wait the weekend. ..

Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
For my first fresh cycle I was on bcp followed by stim protocol of menopur and follistim. I stopped ovulation with ganirelix and triggered with pregnyl. Great cycle 16 retrieved, 12 mature, 8 fertilized, and 6 made it to blasts. After retrieval I was on progesterone in ethyl olate- which I LOVE because it doesn't cause knots along with delestrogen injections and endometrin suppositories. For FET I was on estrogen suppositories, delestrogen, progesterone in ethyl olate, and endometrin.

Cynthia and Ashleigh are fantastic too!
Describe your experience with HRC Fertility.
Overall super buttoned up and professional. I trust my care to HRC. Their lab is fantastic and yields great results. I believe we got the results we did because of Dr Norman and the embryologist. Our first clinic we had 2 eggs out of 13 make it to day 5 with HRC we went for 13 retrieved to 6 day 5 embryos. Our cycle was so much more positive at HRC. I won’t go anywhere else. I recommend them to everyone I know.

Dr. Norian always treated us like a real human being. Always so positive and understanding with every question we had...After our first visit we left with a clear list of what we needed to do along with information on my diagnosis and possible ways for improvement and what procedures we could possibly do. Dr. Norian was never pushy and always left the decisions up to us, he even called me personally after hours to discuss some concerns and questions I had.

The entire staff at the clinic [HRC] are wonderful. They're always so welcoming and responsive. I do however remember their financial counselor Jesssica was not always the friendliest but that did not deter me from how amazing the rest of the staff was...Michelle [nurse] was wonderful! Always so positive and informative...With Dr. Norian I was given letrozole on a monitored cycle. Once Dr. Norian confirmed my cycle was progressing I was given a trigger shot in which I went in for 2 back to back IUIs. Once pregnancy was confirmed I was placed on progesterone for my first trimester. Also to treat the PCOS I was placed on metformin, I also took prenatals (every day before the procedure for 2 months) and vitamin D.

Dr.Norian is very direct while still being compassionate. He reviews everything you would need to know while not overwhelming you with information that could only cause worry and stress. He has always been available in times of need and has never made us feel like we were a number. We truly feel that he cares about us starting a family. During times of loss he prioritized my mental health, which I am extremely appreciative of.

She is extremely dependable and compassionate...I found the communication to be prompt. I also feel strongly that everyone is extremely friendly and comforting. I felt that they truly cared and we weren't just a number or a payment...I feel like Dr.Norian and his staff are genuinely invested in you. They are concerned and do everything they can to help you through the journey. Although we have had a difficult journey we have never doubted the care or knowledge of Dr.Norian and his staff.

Describe the protocols John Norian used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.
Our first egg retrieval was an antagonist protocol- I stimmed for about 10 days. We used ICSI and PGS which resulted in 5 embryos. We transferred one embryo, but it was not successful. Our FET was 4 months later and I was on estrogen and progesterone. We transferred two embryos and we became pregnant with a singleton. We unfortunately lost our baby in the second trimester. Our second FET was 5 months after delivery and we transferred one embryo and were unsuccessful.

I was worried about results because my previous RE had diagnosed me with DOR. Dr. Norian told me he would be aggressive within reason. I was on Gonal F and Menopur. He retrieved 26 eggs, 14 were mature, 13 fertilized, 6 made it to blast by day 5 and 3 more made it to blast on day 6. We sent 9 embryos for PGS testing and 6 were normal. I was extremely satisfied with those numbers.
Clinic [HRC] is beautiful and well run. You are told from the beginning that you'll have to go to their sister clinic for the surgical procedures. The nurses are friendly and greet you by name. You don't feel like just a number.... Nursing staff was great but definitely more blunt with giving news than the doctor.... We went to an introductory session for new IVF patients and as soon as we saw him talking, we felt very comfortable with him. He is very smart and knows the science. He's connected to people and presents as very warm and helpful.
