Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She [Dr. Guner] was always very honest and upfront and gave me realistic expectations, which I appreciate. She communicates very well and takes time to answer questions and explain without seeming rushed or bothered. She has a kind demeanor and good bedside manner. I appreciate her making us feel like we were individuals and our case was specific to us, not just another patient of hundreds...
My only complaint about HRC is that i felt like I needed to ask them for prep before starting and I feel like IVF is something where education and preparation should be a top priority, I shouldn’t have to ask for it...Beautiful office, clean and calm exam rooms, friendly front desk staff. They are very efficient in getting everyone in and out when it’s clearly a very busy clinic. Parking is street parking and mostly only 1 hour streets, which isn’t ideal...

Describe the protocols Joie Guner used in your cycles at HRC Fertility and their degree of success.

Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Desiree)
Desiree was my nurse and she was great. We met before starting my cycle so I could ask some questions and feel prepared. Overall I was very happy with Desiree, however, I was initially assigned to a different nurse who I did not feel was as good of a communicator and didn’t feel like she was providing me with any preparation before starting my cycle. My only complaint about HRC is that i felt like I needed to ask them for prep before starting and I feel like IVF is something where education and preparation should be a top priority, I shouldn’t have to ask for it. But once I met with Desiree everything was smooth sailing.
Describe your experience with HRC Fertility.
Beautiful office, clean and calm exam rooms, friendly front desk staff. They are very efficient in getting everyone in and out when it’s clearly a very busy clinic. Parking is street parking and mostly only 1 hour streets, which isn’t ideal. The structure behind the clinic is super expensive so you either need to park farther when you can find 2 hr streets, or move your car if you aren’t out in 1 hr. That’s not ideal.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joie Guner at HRC Fertility.
Total cost for cycle (which included biopsy for pgt testing and a professional discount which was honored since Dr Guner is a USC doctor) was about $13,500
