Dr. Martin held my initial phone consultation. He worked with me, long distance, every step of the way. He was patient, kind, knowledgeable, warm, and reassuring. They never made promises to me about the results and let me know that they were always there to help...After the first 7 day, they lowered my dose of follistim because I was reacting too well. After retrial, I was on estradiol patches and crinone.

My protocol was menopur (75 unit the morning) and follistim (175 units in the evening). After the first 7 day, they lowered my dose of follistim because I was reacting too well. After retrial, I was on estradiol patches and crinone.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of San Antonio. (Assigned nurse: Kris)
The entire nursing staff at FCSA is WONDERFUL. Kris set my schedule, however, I worked with a lot of different nurses during my treatment. They were all warm, compassionate, knowledgeable individuals! You can tell that they really care about their patients and that the team has been together a long time. It feels like walking into a living room.

Everything from blood draws to retrieval is done at the clinic. You don't have to go to other locations because everything is on site. The clinic staff is awesome! The only real downside is that you have to pay for parking.

The price of the IVF was $9,975. Medications were about $4000. We had ICSI and that was $1050 for up to 10 eggs.

At the time of my transfer, the lab was not sure how many embryos we would be able to freeze. Because of their uncertainty, we elected to transfer 2.

I am an ICU nurse so I wanted straight medical answers and he was able and willing to talk straight with me....He allowed me to express frustration and then laid out a plan to move forward with my infertility journey. He was honest about treatment especially during transplantation of the embryo, he was willing to have honest candid conversation about the quality (not good) of my one surviving 3day embryo. He was very knowledgeable in his practice.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Multiple doctors work in conjunction in this clinic so be prepared to see multiple doctors.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
I am an ICU nurse so I wanted straight medical answers and he was able and willing to talk straight with me. Other patients may not appreciate all the medical information but I needed it and received it from him.
Describe the protocols Joseph Martin used in your cycles at Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
Used 2weeks birth control to suppress the natural cycle and allow ovaries to get as small as they can, then started injectable medications twice per day to create multiple dominate follicles. This continued for two weeks with frequent lab draws and ultrasounds. Once lab levels got high enough a third injectable was started to delay ovulation. Two weeks and two days after stopping birth control I went in for retrieval. They retrieved 6 follicles. 3 fertilized with ICSI. Only 1 embryo made it to day 3 to be reimplanted. The embryo was a five cell and not of a high grade. Negative pregnancy text two weeks post transfer.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Very helpful, positive, compassionate, knowledgeable. Realistic.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of San Antonio.
Strengths are the patient portal which allows patients to look at lab results and get out of town orders, the process to get labs and ultrasounds then talk with a nurse or physician in a private room after labs and ultrasound seems to work rather well. Weakness is response time on the nurses call line can be a little while which can be difficult with time sensitive questions. Wait times in the office aren't too long.

Dr. J. Martin is a very knowledgeable doctor who reviewed my medical charts with his team and explained in detail my risks. He explained to my husband and I our options due to my situation and once we decided the route we would be taking Dr. Martin prepared us for all turnouts.
