He [Dr. Osheroff] always called to follow up during treatment and explained everything in detail...is a good communicator....He did not give false hope, but was compassionate at the same time. I was always well-informed every step of the way during our last IVF cycle....I was given the lowest doses, which were slowly increased based off of the results of my blood tests and ultrasounds. My body did not react quickly and they were only able to retrieve two eggs, one of which was transferred. It was not a successful cycle.
I paid a little less than $8,000 for one IVF cycle [at Shady Grove Fertility] that included a military discount...Appointments are readily available and you have access to a nurse 24/7 via phone. It is easy to get in touch with the nurses. The clinic is in convenient locations. The financial counselors could be a little bit more quick to respond though...[nurse] Responded quickly and was always available to answer any questions I had. Always organized and efficient, yet kind

Dr. O [Joseph Osheroff] made sure my treatments would not cause more damage to my body or fertility after i experienced a molar pregnancy. He always gave the good news with the bad which helped my husband and i to make the hard decisions. Dr. O is very positive, but made sure we always understood the risks.... With my two iui cycles with clomid i had trouble with uterine lining being thick enough, the doctor gave me additional hormones to take to help. Now on my third iui cycle, we are switching up medicines so this problem does not happen this cycle.
My only issue [with Shady Grove-Columbia] is the weekend nurses called and left a message you were unable to return the call and ask questions. You had to wait until monday to ask questions and that would interfere with work or other life scheduling.... Natalie was great. Always called with my plan, answered all questions i had. She was very helpful and calming.
