Describe the protocols Julian Escobar used in your cycles at Conceive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Given my history, Dr. Escobar went over all of my prior treatments and pointed out what he would have done different. Based on previous cycles the amount of medicine that I was getting was not high enough for my body to respond so he would adjust the protocols to see how it would work. Dr. Escobar also helped me change my supplement routine so that I could get as much success as possible. No other doctor had told me anything about supplements before. I am not a textbook case and he could see that with my lab results and outcomes of other cycles. So based on those things he adjusted the protocol On my egg retrieval cycle which helped me tremendously. It was a lot of medication and more than Most are used to taking. But he and I discussed why I would be taking higher doses and what the outcome would be. I am so thankful that he pushed hard because we finally got a retrieval with great numbers.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Julian Escobar at Conceive Fertility Center.
The costs were all extremely fair and outlined clearly. The office staff did a great job coordinating with my insurance as to what would be covered and what would not be covered. They offered payment plans and other options to help fit our budget at the time.
Describe Julian Escobar's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceive Fertility Center.
My doctor did explain the difference between transferring one or two embryos. The risks with multiples are higher and after we talked it through knowing the good and bad of both decisions, we decided to transfer one embryo. Now going forward we will evaluate what the next step will be.

Our fertility journey has been long and extremely emotional. Dr. Escobar first met with my husband and me in his office. We sat and just talked. I felt it was just as equally important for him to make a connection with us. To understand us and our journey. I felt and heard no judgment from Dr. Escober. He is very personable his approach is with concern and understanding.... Dr. Escobar was very open and specific and through with our specific course of treatment given my age and medical condition. We embarked on Clomid 50mg for 5 days followed by gonal-F 300ml and an ovidrel injection 500ml.
Overall the clinic [Conceive Fertility Ctr] is very professional and well versed in the area fertility treatment. It maintains a very comfortable and relaxed setting. It does not have an air of "trying to sell you" or over do it on compassion and comfort.... The nursing staff is friendly, professional, and answers all questions with ease.... $1050 out of pocket once the cycle began. Insurance covered sonos and copay was $70... Dr. Escobar is extremely compassionate, honest, straight forward, and does not offer a false sense of hope.
How was your experience with Julian Escobar at Conceive Fertility Center?
Dr. Escobar is extremely compassionate, honest, straight forward, and does not offer a false sense of hope. We spent some time with testing and he even sent me to see a specialist regarding a tumor. He wanted to be sure and certain given my medical challenges. He communicated with previous doctors and took the time to read and dissect my records. He spoke directly to my husband and me. He didn't speak at us. There was no judgment given our situation. Transparency and honesty are important to us and Dr. Escober exceeds our expectations.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Julian Escobar at Conceive Fertility Center?
Be honest, come with questions and be prepared to embark on a very relaxing and caring treatment.

Our treatment was a few years ago and I don't remember all the details, but I do remember that Dr. Escobar was very kind, understanding and direct. We understood the process and the next steps all the way through our treatments. I saw him every time I had an appointment. He has a very casual bedside manner and is easily relatable. After my 1st or 2nd failed IUI, I had the uncomfortable dye test and he was great during the procedure. It was painful and he kept me calm throughout.
I suppose a disconnect between a doctor's care and the billing department is relatively normal. In no way do we resent Dr. Escobar for the shock we felt when told about the cost of proceeding with IVF (which we opted not to do). Our insurance plan was from New Jersey so compared to plans from Texas, our coverage was generally excellent. Families in north Dallas suburbs are notoriously affluent, and there seemed to be a sentiment that $6K should be an easy check to write. We simply weren't that liquid! To be fair, I never followed up with the clinic about alternative payment options, other than to tell them we wouldn't be proceeding.
How was your experience with Julian Escobar at Repromed Fertility Center?
Overall, although we didn't end up with the result we wanted, I was happy with Dr. Escobar and the clinic in Dallas. I don't think he's at that clinic anymore though.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Repromed Fertility Center.
I also don't remember much about the nursing staff. I don't think I had a designated nurse or coordinator. I did receive adequate instructions from a nurse in a private office within the clinic, on the home injections, and felt comfortable during that process. Overall, I don't have any complaints about the nurses but I also don't have any outstanding moments that I can recall being thrilled.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Julian Escobar at Repromed Fertility Center.
Our insurance covered the meds and IUI treatments. It would have covered the IVF cycle, but the clinic's lab was not approved/covered by our carrier. The lab costs for the IVF cycle were going to be $6K.

Cost/billing was an issue. And the fact that the clinic did not take personal checks or credit cards for treatment.

We were a special case. We are a same sex male couple. Our egg donor was 36 (not typical age for egg donor). Dr Escobar gave us so much hope and helped us reach our goal to get pregnant.... He was very detailed in explaining the process. At first we were overwhelmed since we weren’t working with an agency but he calmed our nerves and made everything very simple! He always took the time to talk to us and never felt rushed. We saw him for 3+ years
Their [Repromed Fertility Center- Dallas'] biggest strength is how knowledgeable they are. You can tell they have been doing this for a long time and know how to make everyone’s experience unique. As for a weakness I can’t think of one. We had zero speed bumps while working with them... I believe we spent around $30,000 with the fertility clinic alone. That includes all the IVF process egg donor/surrogate medication.

Since we had only 2 normal PGS tested embryos he recommended only transferring 1 embryo to be safe.

The first time I met him [Dr. Escobar], for an HSG it was very quick and just to the point...was nice and friendly. He fully explained to me what he thought I needed as far as treatment went. He discussed a plan of action and possible risks and complications. I told him my fears and concerns and he seemed to recognize those...He believed I had a hydrosalpinx due to endometriosis and recommended a laparoscopy. I went ahead with the procedure and he was correct. My left tube had a hydrosalpinx and was damaged.
The office staff makes this clinic [Repromed Fertility Center] TERRIBLE! Not friendly at all. They have horrible follow through. They don't return calls, they don't do simple things like fax, email , etc. I don't recommend this clinic simply based on the office staff...I could never get answers from them [the nurses]. They would never return my calls. They were not friendly AT ALL. This is the main reason I would advise against this clinic.
