How was your experience with Kaylen Silverberg at Texas Fertility Center?
Dr. Silverberg is very thorough is very real. He explains everything that is happening in the appointment, such as what he sees on the ultrasound and showing us what each thing is, he shows us how he is measuring the size of the follicles and lining of the uterus, and takes the time to answer questions. He has been to Washington, D.C. several times to advocate for infertility which shows me he is passionate about what he does and his desire to help people in this situation.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kaylen Silverberg at Texas Fertility Center?
Don't be turned off by the 10 minute exam once the process of the treatment begins. He spends an hour with you at the initial consult. He welcomes questions and is easy to work with.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kaylen Silverberg at Texas Fertility Center?
Although Dr. Silverberg is very quick, he is ready to answer questions at every appointment. Even two years after our first round of IVF, he remembered us.
Describe the protocols Kaylen Silverberg used in your cycles at Texas Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I don't remember the type of protocols used but for both full IVF cycles, I was on birth control for about 3 weeks, lupron for a couple of weeks, lupron and gonal-f for 10 days the first round and 12 days the second round. I triggered with ovidrel both times and was on estrogen pills for a little over a week and crinone until my progesterone numbers were high enough.
We went to IVF, skipping IUI, because my husband has a history of trsticular cancer which greatly effected his numbers. I feel like that was the right call so we weren't spending so much money on countless IUIs that probably wouldn't have worked.
Our first IVF resulted in 6 embryos, only one in the blast stage. We transferred two, the rest arrested, and we had one healthy baby. The second round resulted in 10 embryos, 4 reaching the blast stage. We opted to freeze all in order to allow my body to adjust from being on the meds. We did a frozen transfer about 2 weeks later of one embryo which resulted in one healthy baby.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Texas Fertility Center.
We had a different nurse for each round, but both were excellent. We were able to call with any questions at any time and both were prompt in returning those calls. I really believe they wanted treatments to be successful for us just as much as we did.
Describe your experience with Texas Fertility Center.
The clinic is warm and welcoming. So many people working there but helping everyone out, being understanding of any type of situation, cheering every patient on, and overall very kind hearted people.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Texas Fertility Center.
Scheduling was easy. The doctors tend to do procedures in the morning and office appointments in the afternoons. We waited in a beautiful waiting room usually no more than 15 minutes from our appointment time. The monitoring ultrasound itself only took about 10 minutes if we didn't have questions. We always felt comfortable and like we were given every piece of information we needed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kaylen Silverberg at Texas Fertility Center.
We paid for everything except the medications at our clinic. Everything had to be paid in full at the baseline appointment. If something changed, for example an extra monitoring appointment that we weren't expecting, we were made aware and they worked with us on payment.
