I would (and do) highly recommend Dr Skorupski. Very good communicator, patient with questions, used non-medical terms to help me understand, and was always open with risks. He never guaranteed success (something no one should promise) but was always optimistic.... Friendly staff, always felt personal during visits I was hospitalized for 6 days due to hyperstimulation and Dr Skorupski was available to us around the clock

Describe the protocols Josh Skorupski used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
2016 cycle: can’t remember the medication but we used injections and had an egg retrieval. Due to hyperstimulation, we froze all embryos. We transferred two (we picked boy/girl) after hormone prep (estrogen patch, estrogen pill, and PIO) and had a successful pregnancy/Delivery. 2018: first cycle was cancelled after I did not respond to hormone prep. Second cycle we used gonal f for stimulation, then added estrogen and PIO after trigger shot. Transfer of one tested embryo results in negative preganancy test. Third cycle, we went back to hormone prep but added a viagra vaginal suppository. Transfer of one tested embryo resulted in negative pregnancy test. Fourth cycle, we have done a miscarriage panel and discovered Factor 2 mutation. We went back to gonal f for stimulation plus viagra suppository, Plaquenil, lovenox, and baby aspirin. We transferred two untested embryos and are in the two week wait
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Always friendly, answered all questions in a timely manner. Showed compassion for us

2016 cycle: approximately $22k for retrieval and transfer 2018: approx $5k per cycle with medication. The physician fees for the cycle after the cancelled cycle were waived
Describe Josh Skorupski's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Houston Fertility Institute.
Yes, the guidance had changed between our 2016 and 2018 cycles. He updated us and helped us decide what was right for us after several failed transfers

Dr [Josh Skorupski] is very knowledgeable, knows how to communicate the process, what to expect, both the good and potential bad. He was very involved from start until now. For any challenges I was having, the doctor would call me personally if the news was not good.... Because I was already in peri menopause, doc was very deliberate in everything knowing my age was a huge factor in timing. I did a total of 4 transfers, the first resulting in a chemical pregnancy, the next two resulted in no implantation at all. With each attempt, he adjusted or added to my meds. For our fourth and last attempt , we decided to include Neupogen shot and it worked. I am on Estrace, Mineville patch, Plaqinel, baby aspirin, Lovunox shots, progesterone in oil shots.

Dr is very knowledgeable, knows how to communicate the process, what to expect, both the good and potential bad. He was very involved from start until now.

He is very patient and understanding.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
The office staff and nurses were very caring and involved in making sure I understood all instructions. Doctor is always available for my many questions during appointments and I never felt rushed.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Houston Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Tammi)
Nurse staff was excellent. Always made time to ensure I understood all instructions.
Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
Facility in Beaumont and Houston were top notch. Very up to date on technology and equipment. Facility is very modern and clean. Very comfortable atmosphere. I was able to everything with exception of transfer st the Beaumont office which closest to me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute.
$10,450 for the donor for eggs, $5,500 for PGS testing. This was not covered by insurance. $1300 for medications not covered by insurance. Each transfer was approximately $6,000. Insurance covered all after deductible and out of pocket were met.
Describe Josh Skorupski's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Houston Fertility Institute.
Due to my donors age, there concerns about more than one transfer, higher % of embryo splitting. So first two attempts we only transferred one. Knowing my timing was limited , we decided to transfer two on our third attempt which did not work. We had two embryos left so transferred both on our fourth attempt and we had one that did implant. Currently six weeks pregnant.

How was your experience with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
I felt like he did care about the well-being of my overall health as well as my husband but still felt like all of my problems were being blamed on my weight rather than doing more testing. He is a very kind doctor & I believe he wants the best for his patients but I just couldn’t get over the fat shaming I felt. He was thorough when explaining problems or what he believed were our problems conceiving as well as my multiple miscarriages but I never felt like we had a real plan besides the constant comment of “I need to lose weight”.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
Be prepared before going in to your appointments. Write down questions, concerns, anything you can think of, that way you don’t get flustered & forget in the moment. Bring someone to advocate for you if you need. It can help tremendously.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
While I did feel like I was treated with grace & dignity during my first encounter with Dr Skorupski & his office back in 2013 when I came back to his office & staff I was treated cordially but felt like I was being fat shamed because I’m overweight.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
When I first became a patient with Dr Skorupski (in 2013) I loved his nurses & staff. Heather was my nurse & she was so kind & helpful, even the receptionist/office manager was amazing. Always so kind & helpful. When I returned in 2017 the staff left something to be desired. They came off as cold & unwelcoming, like I was a nuisance. The on site phlebotomist was always kind & the one time I had a nurse do an ultrasound she was pleasant but overall it wasn’t a great experience going into the office. I hope maybe they were just having a bad day when I happened to be there but who knows.
Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
The Beaumont office is basically brand new. Location is easily accessible. Office was always clean & nice. They do have an onset phlebotomists but she’s only their on certain days. It was difficult at time for my husband to go in because they only do sperm samples or testing on certain days. Same with Dr Skorupski. He was only available on certain days because he works both in Houston & Beaumont offices.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute.
Most of my testing was done out of pocket. I can’t remember if insurance covered anything specific.

Make sure he explains the procedure you’ll be getting done. And whatever you do try to avoid Dr. Bello in Houston.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
When I went to Houston go get my IUI I felt like a number. They messed up my procedure because they forgot to defrost my husband’s sperm. Therefore, an appointment that was scheduled for 10am wasn’t until 1:30p. Then, I had to go inthe next day at 8:30a so they could defrost the sperm, didn’t get seen u til 11:20a. I was one of the first patients there and was the last one to leave. By the way, those two procedures were not done by my doctor. When the Dr. Skropuski saw me in Beaumont I was treated like a human.

I’m sorry I don’t remember.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Houston Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Tammi)
Tammi was working with another nurse that she was training. That nurse was immature, interrupting Tammi when we were trying to scheduled. She was so rude that when I called to let them know that I had taken my trigger shot 30 mins late she just answered cross your finger and pray it works. I was so mad because I had just paid a lot of money and it was a bit stressful situation for her to be telling me that.
Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
Once you get your treatment they send you to the main location in Houston. For Iui you get which ever doctor is available. Basically, you get anyone you do t have a rapport with. That’s one thing I didn’t like. I do like my doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute.
With medicines and freezing of the sperm about 6500-7000

I was treated like a human, because Dr Skorupski took the time to listen to me, and to explain to me what were my options, and also the chances of success. He requested so many tests. Unfortunately, my 3 IUI were not successful...is a good listener. He explains to his patients, in detail, all the options on the table, and also the risks. He asks for exams, and when the results are out there, he takes time to explain the diagnosis. My experience with him personally was not bad. This assessment says a lot, because I could be somehow biased against him, because I did an IUI procedure at least 3 times, and the result was negative.

How was your experience with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
Josh Skorupski is a good listener. He explains to his patients, in detail, all the options on the table, and also the risks. He asks for exams, and when the results are out there, he takes time to explain the diagnosis. My experience with him personally was not bad. This assessment says a lot, because I could be somehow biased against him, because I did an IUI procedure at least 3 times, and the result was negative. At the time, my Husband was working overseas, while I was leaving alone, and jobless, with no real support system, beside a cousin of mine. So I felt a little bit traumatized by the outcome. During the first 2 visits, my husband came with me. We had prepared several questions, and Dr Skorupski replied to each of them to our satisfaction. I did many exams, and so did my husband. There was no red flag for me, while my husband had low sperm count. Josh Skorupski recommended to avoid stressfull situations, exercise, and sleep regularly. We did our first IUI before my husband return trip, and it was negative. When my husband returned to Houston, his sperm count had significantly improved, and was normal. We did the 2nd IUI and it still failed. the HFI froze my husband semen, and I did a 3rd IUI, which also failed. SO, that's a summary of my experience with Dr Skorupski. I believe he did what he had to. But we were just unlucky.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
I would say, do your research, and come prepare with your questions on your first visit. Dr Skorupski will always ask you about your questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
I was treated like a human, because Dr Skorupski took the time to listen to me, and to explain to me what were my options, and also the chances of success. He requested so many tests. Unfortunately, my 3 IUI were not successful.
Describe the protocols Josh Skorupski used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did IUI 3 times. Before each procedure, Dr Skorupski made me use folic acid, or Clomiphene. Then during the procedure, I was injected hormones like endometrin.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses always tried to make me comfortable. I could feel their passion. So this is their main strength. The weakness is related to my 2nd IUI. Because that time my husband sperm was abundant and of good quality, the nurse make me feel like this time, the result would be positive, and I'll conceive. I was really disappointed by the outcome.
Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
Houston Fertility clinic in Willowbrook, was near our house, so it was a plus for me. It was also easy to secure an appointment. The facility seemed well maintained. The weakness, was the waiting time. Sometimes, I would show up on time for my appointment, but would wait more time before being able to see the doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute.
I don't remember very well, but I believe the cost of IUI cycle and medication was around $2,500 to $3,000
Describe Josh Skorupski's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Houston Fertility Institute.
I did IUI conception procedure. So, we never reached to the level of embryo transfers.

How was your experience with Josh Skorupski at Houston Fertility Institute?
He was good, I just sort of felt like he was after our money. He wanted us to jump strait to IVF and didn't offer any natural alternatives that we could try. But, he may be right that IVF is the only option for us if we want to have kids. I am currently saving up for it now. It is going to take two-three years for me to earn enough money to pay for IVF out of pocket.

He is good, he's just very matter of fact, so you have to be ready to hear that.

I felt like a human because he spoke with us and was very understanding, yet matter of fact. My situation is different than most because it is my husband and his stressful job as an attorney that have given us problems conceiving.
Describe the protocols Josh Skorupski used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I only got a hysteroscopy. I didn't get to do anything else because I didn't have the funds and didn't want to be in debt. For my hysteroscopy, everything went great. I was very pleased with the results.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Young, kind, detailed, made sure I had followed the instructions before my procedure and that things were clear to me.
Describe your experience with Houston Fertility Institute.
The front desk lady wasn't the nicest, but she was pregnant, so I kind of let it slide. Everyone else was friendly. The lady who took my blood was very nice, and the clinic was really clean and orderly. The location of the clinic is close to my house and all of the staff is very kind.

Sloane is the best! She sends the most detailed emails so that I rarely have a question of what I need to do. When I do have a question, she always answers it promptly!

But the doctors can not be held responsible for the lack of a good staff it falls on the administrator. I'm not there for the staff just the great doctors they have .

I think that the team that was at his office was very caring and truly cared about my outcome.

The egg donor coordinator was located at a separate office and the coordination and communication was not as good with her.

Lindsey took care of the appointment setup and coordination and June took care of me at my appointments. June was the best nurse; I could not have asked for more.

Medicated IUI [with Dr. Josh Skorupski]. We are pregnant after the first round...He was informative and very calming about the process. He listened to our concerns and made us the major decision makers while providing support. At no time did I feel like he was quick to push more expensive treatments just for financial gain. He let us decide what course of treatment we were comfortable with but advised whatever we try to no do so more than 3 times to avoid wasting money or time.

My first fertility treatment was a round of Clomid and Dr. Skorupski noticed that my body didn't do well with it, so we changed to a better medicine the next time.... He is a great doctor. Sometimes I was unsure on instructions as they weren't clearly given, but he always answers all questions I may have. He always makes it a point to see me even when they are busy.... He is very nice and patient. He answers all questions without rushing.
