He [Dr. Joseph Martin] also made sure to tell what his subjective option and well as his objective opinion...I had 3-4 active follicles to start and with medication, got 7 to activate...In the second round of IVF we went straight to growth and did better. A 10 HCG shot was planned but I didn't take it because I messed up my order, I only took a 5 HCG...the doctors said it did not make a difference...
she[nurse of Fertility Center of San Antonio] did a great job but sometimes the instructions on the forms were a bit vague so I had to call in to verify- she clarified it every time...the first cycle, we did genetic testing and of the 6 eggs, we got 2 embryos to blastocyst on Day 5...the second round we decided to do Day 3 transfer and got 2 embryos at 8-cell B and one embryo at 7-cell B...[est. cost]$10,059 for Doctor, $1365 for Labs, $525 for Anesthesia, $1218 for Embryo Cryo, $5427 for Medication.
How was your experience with Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Dr. Martin remembered some of the stories I told him in conversation, so every time we saw each other, the relationship continued to build. He also made sure to tell what his subjective option and well as his objective opinion.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Utilize his extensive knowledge, he's got decades of experience so he's seen everything and is still not afraid to take risks.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Dr. Martin remembered some of the stories I told him in conversation, so every time we saw each other, the relationship continued to build. He also made sure to tell what his subjective option and well as his objective opinion. Also, the nurses and staff got to know me so it was fun to do the labs and paperwork before and after my appointment. Finally, I seemed to always get the appointment I wanted- first slot in the morning!
Describe the protocols Joseph Martin used in your cycles at Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
I had 3-4 active follicles to start and with medication, got 7 to activate. My first IVF protocol was a standard one, the cost of my medication was in the $4K range. My HCG trigger shot was a 5 (not a 10). I understand that in the first round, I took a medicine that slowed follicle growth to get a base line and then used another medicine to boost it. In the second round of IVF we went straight to growth and did better. A 10 HCG shot was planned but I didn't take it because I messed up my order, I only took a 5 HCG...the doctors said it did not make a difference. Both cycles retrieved 6 eggs, but the second cycle was of better quality. In the first cycle, we did genetic testing and of the 6 eggs, we got 2 embryos to blastocyst on Day 5 but were not of good quality so we didn't screen or transfer them. In the second round we decided to do Day 3 transfer and got 2 embryos at 8-cell B and one embryo at 7-cell B. We transferred the two 8-cell embryos to no avail. The 7-cel embryo grew 5-7 days but the quality was too low to transfer.

The nurses and staff got to know me so it was fun to do the labs and paperwork before and after my appointment. Finally, I seemed to always get the appointment I wanted- first slot in the morning! My nurse coordinator was young - she did a great job but sometimes the instructions on the forms were a bit vague so I had to call in to verify- she clarified it every time.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of San Antonio.
They are the most established clinic in San Antonio and their pricing is middle-ground. The team is highly regarded and the embryologist is world-class. They like to stick to protocols so if you want to do something that has never been done before, this is not the clinic. If it's been done some, they'll consider it seriously.

Describe Joseph Martin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
I prefer multiple embryo transfer, especially at an advanced age.

One of his [Dr. Joseph Martin] many strengths are his way of explaining things. When we first began this journey, we had no idea where it would lead us or why we were not able to conceive. Dr. Martin took his time explaining in detail and broke down medical terms for us to understand what was happening. He even sketched out examples for us to better understand. Dr.Martin overall is great in every aspect of our experience. The only weakness I would say he has are his sketches. I guess thats why he's a doctor and not an artist.
The [Fertility Center of San Antonio] clinics strengths I would say would be the way every single person walks you through every step of every process. Some people may need more guidance then others and this is where this clinic excels. I would say the main weakness of this clinic is the lack of options when it comes to funding a procedure through financing. When we went through this process we were only given three institutions if we decided to finance the procedure.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
To trust him even when its not the easiest thing to do when a couple goes through an experience like ours. We wanted answers to why we were not conceiving. Dr.Martin found those answers. Even though it was difficult for us to except the answers that were found. Dr.Martin assured us that its not the end of the road for us.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
He was very understanding and caring. He listened to everything we had to say. He gave us so much closure and a better understanding on why we are not conceiving. We left the clinic with answers.
Describe the protocols Joseph Martin used in your cycles at Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
After Dr.Martin received all my blood work, he saw that my TSH levels were high he prescribed me 50 MCG of Levothyroxine to help balance my hormone levels. He also recommended the vitamins that I should start taking such as prenatals and Vitamin D, due to results being low. He also did a semen analysis on my husband, which came back low and recommended him to take Conception XR Reproductive Health supplement. Last appointment I had a HSG test and during the procedure we found out that both of my tubes are blacked due to scar tissue from previous abdominal surgeries. He said the best route would be IVF due to my blockage and my husband's low sperm.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
Very friendly and caring, they had no problem explaining things to me such as my blood results, husband's results and how to help control my thyroid to have a healthy pregnancy in the future. I would call them with questions about the hsg procedure and they were so kind and caring.

The procedures that determined that the only way we could conceive was through IVF cost around $700.
Describe Joseph Martin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
Dr. Martin recommended that its best to do a single transfer then multiple so that we can have a higher chance of getting pregnant. Due to me having double uterus and double cervix he said my right side of my uterus is the dominant one to carry a baby full term. If doing more than one it could cause complications such as premature birth.

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

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.

When discussing transferring 2 in my next FET, he [Dr. Martin] gave me facts and support for both positions of transferring 2 or 1. Overall supports what my husband and I decide...I can’t tell you how many hour-long meetings I have had to get a better understanding of my diagnosis...He is a very caring person and it shows in how he treats me and all in his clinic. My husband and I have appreciated his kindness and expertise in our time there. After receiving an upsetting diagnosis, He provided me with a cell phone number I can contact him at if I have questions out of office hours.
Dr. Martin, and all doctors in his practice [Fertility Center of San Antonio], never hesitated to take time to explain procedures, treatments, and options to me. I can’t tell you how many hour-long meetings I have had to get a better understanding of my diagnosis. On the financial stand point, I have been given an array of options in treatment to help me make an informed financial decision. The doctors have all taken time to invest in me, my process, and my situation. They remember me and have genuinely connected with me on a personal level.
How was your experience with Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Dr. Martin is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. He is thorough to explain procedures and treatments and does his very best to ensure that I have an understanding of my options. He is a very caring person and it shows in how he treats me and all in his clinic. My husband and I have appreciated his kindness and expertise in our time there. After receiving an upsetting diagnosis, He provided me with a cell phone number I can contact him at if I have questions out of office hours. He has invested in my “story” and truly exhibits care and concern. I would recommend his care and his clinic 1000 times over.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions or mention something you don’t understand. Dr. Martin is extremely thorough and does not make you feel dumb for asking questions you don’t have an understanding of. Unlike most doctors, he is “like you” when consulting with you or regrouping for options. He is extremely knowledgeable and gives you facts and information clearly. Ask what’s on your heart and mind!

Describe the protocols Joseph Martin used in your cycles at Fertility Center of San Antonio and their degree of success.
I started my fertility treatments at a different clinic. My first consultation with Dr. Martin was different than most because I had already come with 5 clomid cycles and surgery in my history. We were shopping for the best IVF doctor and landed in Dr. Martin’s Office. Because our intention was to try IVF next, we specifically began working towards that. After a very successful first fresh cycle, we decided to continue with a fresh transfer. Unfortunately the transfer did not result in pregnancy, but with 5 frozen embryos left over, it was easy to keep moving forward. In our re-consultation after my first failed transfer, Dr. Martin recommended genetic testing and chromosome karyotype as next tests to run. My husband and I had been very against genetic testing and through a 2 hour consultation, Dr. Martin gave us a perspective that we hadn’t considered. I never thought these genetic tests would tell me why I wasn’t conceiving. A few weeks after receiving our results, I found out that I am a Balanced Translocation carrier. When I received the call, Dr. Martin informed me that he was not comfortable proceeding with my FET hat was to occur in 3 days. He wanted another reconsult with him and the clinics embryologist so we could know what our options were. In our next Re-consult, we discussed the need for PGT. My husband and I agreed that a fresh cycle and PGT on fresh eggs would be more worthwhile for the overall cost of the genetic test. Because of the time frame to receive genetic results on embryos we did not plan a transfer for the second fresh cycle. Our genetic results on 9 embryos came back and only 1 was normal. At our next Re-consult, We decided to try one last fresh cycle with PGT. We agreed to send fresh eggs from cycle 3 and our 5 frozen from cycle 1. After the treatment, we decided to transfer my 1 normal from cycle 2 as well. In the end, we sent 12 blasts for genetic testing and had 2 normal embryos. Unfortunately, this transfer was not a positive pregnancy. At another re-consult, Dr. Martin gave us the information to consider an ERA, biopsy of the endometrial lining, to test chemistry and window of implantation so we can best predict the transfer window. Currently I am working towards an ERA cycle that mimics FET stimulation and hormones.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
All the nurses are amazing. They are knowledgeable and friendly. I have enjoyed the empathy they demonstrate and the information they all take the time to share. They always put together very informative calendars and directions that make it easy for me to step out of the clinic and remember what to do.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of San Antonio.
Strengths - everything!!! What I love most is that everything is done in the office. I get blood drawn, sonograms performed, retrievals done, and transfer completed in the same place. The embryos do not leave the facility until you receive positive test and the only material that leaves is genetic testing that is done in different lab. They are extremely tech friendly and allow you to access all records, communication, and lab results on their online system. Weakness - something they cannot control, I drive over an hour to get to their clinic! Location is not a fault of theirs, but the drive is WELL worth it for the care I have received.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joseph Martin at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
My insurance covered my first fresh cycle. Each fresh cycle after that costs $7500 with my insurance maximum. FET was $3000. The medications were most costly expense, but was processed through out of office pharmacy. Same with genetic testing.
Describe Joseph Martin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of San Antonio.
My doctor has been supportive of our decisions to transfer our embryos - we have not had the opportunity to transfer more than 1 at a time. When discussing transferring 2 in my next FET, he gave me facts and support for both positions of transferring 2 or 1. Overall supports what my husband and I decide.

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.
Strengths [of Fertility Center of San Antonio] 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.

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.

This was my first consultation . Dr. Martin was very good and listening .He has looked over my previous records. Take the time to answer my question. Did a exam and said everything looked fine. He was very optimistic that this transfer would be a good one for me. Hopefully this time at the festival he was very optimistic that this transfer would be a good one for me. Hopefully this time at the successful full-term birth
Being a military wife and seen by multiple fertility doctors. My expectations of being a new patient is pretty high because I understand the procedures . The strength of the clinic [Fertility Center of SA] that everyone is very friendly . The weakness of the clinic is over scheduling patients back to back and not having the time to spend with the patient especially one that has multiple questions.... It was 300+ for first consultation and also depends on your insurance price for consultation.
