Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Nurudeen is kind and very nice in office. She went over my entire medical history (that i pre-filled before the consult). I had already done a TON of my own research before going in so she really didn't provide any answers to suggestions that I didn't already know. It seems pretty straight forward. I am a women married to another woman and we are using donor sperm for family building.
[Aspire Houston Fertility Institute] Clinic is fine. Overall very clean. The front desk person just signs you in and you pay immediately. It doesn't really make me feel all warm and cozy inside but everyone is nice. I think overall, most people are compassionate to this type of medical care but I think I will always feel like a number.
How was your experience with Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute?
Overall, I specifically chose Dr. Nurudeen. However, it was not mentioned to me or my wife until my 2nd or 3rd appointment for blood work and ultrasound that she would be going on maternity leave in the next month or so. I didn't even know she was pregnant during our initial consultation just the month before. I was very upset to hear this from the nurse. I would have been more understanding to know this information during our consultation. We mentioned we wanted to start our IUI attempts in May or June and she never mentioned that she would be out at the end of April and wouldn't return until sometime in June. I also didn't know until very recently, that you get the "luck of the draw" when it comes to your actual IUI anyway. It's whoever is working the clinic that day.. I was very upset. So many details were not made clear and upfront during our consultation.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute?
Do your own research. Ask a bunch of questions and have her be SPECIFIC about what to expect during your cycle treatment. I still to this day get new information and surprises along the way. I think I've done more crying than being happy so far. And I'm only a couple months into my pre-work up. I haven't started the attempts yet.

Describe the protocols Kemi Nurudeen used in your cycles at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Currently not on a protocol yet. Our plan is to do unmedicated IUI. However, i did have to go on birth control 6 weeks before my hysteroscopy which i did not want to do. I have very regular cycles and wanted to be unmedicated and now that has already changed.
How competent was Kemi Nurudeen at LGBTQ care?
I felt like she treated me and my wife the same as she would anyone else. I didn't get any feelings otherwise.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Asia and Sarah)
Very compassionate for sure. No issues with them on a personal level. Just have been upset with the lack of clear information provided from the start. Every time we go in for blood work or a follow up, we find out some new information that can be detrimental to us being able to move forward. Whether that is how they schedule appointments, how often we have to come in (unrealistic for those who have jobs!) and the financial part of it all.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
I don't have exact costs yet but i was quoted: Non medicated IUI 1,400 per cycle Medicated IUI $1700 per cycle. IUI treatment plans vary from 1400 to 2800 and does not include price of medications. It has been a 40 dollar co pay each time I go in. I've been 3 times. All my lab work through insurance has been 500 dollars. Fee for MD for hysteroscopy 517 Facility fees with insurance 260 (it's through the hospital system of which I work) Awaiting anesthesia quote for hysteroscopy. Reciprocal IVF was out of our reach at 16,000 per cycle ..
Describe Kemi Nurudeen's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
Not doing IVF.
How competent was Aspire Houston Fertility Institute at LGBTQ care?
They seem to have knowledge of our needs. Ours have been pretty straight forward as I have never had reproductive issues. We are having to go through the process just because we want to do IUI with a sperm donor and don't want to do home insemination. It seems very over the top and unnecessary for us to go through all of this but we are doing what is necessary to have the IUI performed. Our labs and diagnostics have confirmed this but we feel like we are going to an infertility clinic and being worked up for all the possible issues when so far we have none. It's frustrating.
Describe your experience using 3rd party reproduction (donor eggs, donor sperm, or gestational carrier) at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
So far, since my labs are back and CMV and genetic results are posted, we have chosen a donor. We haven't gotten far into treatment yet to be able to attest to how things are going but I'd be happy to follow up on this in the future!
What specific things went wrong at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
Lack of specific information up front. 1) specific doctor will be gone on maternity leave during our IUI dates 2) my insurance doesn't cover their specific surgery clinic (Piney woods) and have to have my hysteroscopy performed elsewhere which delayed by work up 3) having to go on birth control despite telling them in my consult that I didn't want to be put on any meds for first couple IUI attempts. However had to go on BC to not risk jeopardizing my hysteroscopy results and losing a lot of money to have it redone 4) finding out IUI's are performed by luck of the draw clinic schedule.

Dr Nurudeen is very thorough in her assessment and treatment plans. She explained my hysteroscopy procedure as well as my treatment options for IUI and IVF. I never felt rushed in her presence and she was very honest about treatment success rates. I feel comfortable with her...She is asking and answering all questions and being honest and realistic with you...For my hysteroscopy I had to start on a mini pill until my procedure. After the procedure I followed up in 1 week to discuss the results on how to move forward. She explained both procedures for IUI and IVF to me
The clinic is located in the medical center so it has a convenient location...If busy sometimes the wait time can be a little long. That is the only downside...Judy Campos has been very helpful every step of the way. She is the communicator between myself and Dr Nurudeen. She sets everything up and is very knowledgeable about the different protocols and treatments. She responds in 24-48 hours. The care coordinator is the financial coordinator who answers all questions about costs. She responds within 24 hours and is extremely helpful

During my baseline testing I was supposed to get a fasting prolactin done and when I went in for the lab work they forgot to order the test. I wasn’t able to go back to get it done due to scheduling work conflict.

As nurse, I am aware of quality patient care. With Dr. Nurudeen , she made feel more like a human than my oncologist. I was diagnosed with cancer and I felt completely cared for by her...There is a unique bond created when a doctor truly cares about her patients well being and that describes her...I had 3 IVF cycles to preserve my fertility before my cancer treatments...We are completely thankful for her.
[Houston Fertility Institute] does not have a good front office personnel. My experience would depend a lot on her mood...high lab costs as they do not have their own lab...Monitoring time was usually in the mornings and it would completely intervene with my work...the waiting time in the afternoon was super long...nurse would not call back to review results...I spent 18,000 in total for 3 cycles

HIF clinic does not have a good front office personnel. My experience would depend a lot on her mood toward people differently. In addition, the waiting time in the afternoon was super long. HFI does have high lab costs as they do not have their own lab and over prices on pgs testing. I could not afford pgs testing as it costed 4,000 without insurance. I missed out in the opportunity .

Later you’ll go in for blood work & that’s as far as I’ve gotten. Met back with the doctor for review of what happened and what’s next option wise. Found out I have an unsolved mystery reason. Hoping to do IVF soon. As a pair of teachers we are looking for affordable options.

She [Dr. Nurudeen] was hopeful and aggressive with pretreatment. I actually really loved working with her...I especially felt comfortable with her because she is Black and I just did not see many black women REs around. She was understanding and extremely encouraging. She is thorough as well...[Eset Approach] It was more of a “we will see when we get there” but she did prefer single transfer
I did not like the operations of that particular office [HFI - Mem Hermann]. They were nice but inattentive to a lot of important things...the office and in the group, they have a central number so it’s hard to know who you will reach at what facility or who is taking care of what....They also at one point forgot to add an Amh to my blood work and I had to go back in and draw. That made me very upset.

Describe the protocols Kemi Nurudeen used in your cycles at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The thing that changed for me when I saw her as opposed to my first doctor was not only was I on metformin and vite for my metabolic disorder, but she added ancillary treatment such as acupuncture, dhea, and other prenatal elements to help with follicle development
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
I never knew who I would be talking to. There was not one set coordinator to discuss everything thing with. I would have been good having two coordinators, but it seemed like there was often some one different who I had to review things with. They also at one point forgot to add an Amh to my blood work and I had to go back in and draw. That made me very upset.
Describe your experience with Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
They, like a lot of other American clinics don’t give you the cost up front. It seem like they wait ( in my case) until you have the follicle count that you need to get you excited about it all then talk about cost. It’s like they know you will do anything to start. Not consider that this could be the very thing that halts the process. Talk money by the end of the consultation week. Because if your insurance doesn’t cover it or you’re not loaded in dough, it’s gonna cause a lot of problems.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
My insurance took care of diagnostic things but I had to meet the deductible. I really don’t remember what I paid to see her, but they do give military /vet discount. The co pay was horrible. 35 every visit and if you talked to the doctors over the phone it was 50.

What specific things went wrong at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
They just did not run as efficiently as I expected. The other issue I had was their lack of knowledge on how to help clients do this as efficiently and as methodically as possible. There was no real guide. It was just a reading through the paperwork and trying to figure it out myself. On top of that their specific pharmacy did not have the meds available if I wrote to start when I did so if some one ready to start that would have been an incredibly disappointing delay in treatment.

She [Dr. Nurudeen] sat down with us and explained everything, answering any and all questions and concerns without rushing us. She was kind and had such a pleasant demeanor. She was realistic yet optimistic...Everything about her was amazing. Her knowledge, her attention to detail, her timeliness in going over results, her demeanor towards us, and her general attitude. She has an amazing bedside manner and really makes you feel like she genuinely wants to see you successful.
I had my monitoring appts in the sugar land location [of Houston Fertility Institute], and it was often a hit or miss. One thing I will say is they were very diligent in responding to messages...They are very organized. Everything you need is in the portal, and they are great at communication. The appts are very quick and I was able to get my monitoring done during my planning period at school...I think we paid around 25k total including meds, egg retrieval, and both our FETs.

There was no "sugar-coating" things and Dr. Nurudeen spoke to me as a patient and not another doctor when using medical terms. Step-by-step processes were given so I wasn't waiting to see what was next in the process....she told us the risks and benefits of a singleton vs multiples but told me I would be fine carrying either. She was opposed to putting in more than 2 embryos... Professional, friendly, caring, knowledgeable...
No weaknesses in my book. Location was perfect for getting the league city area patients. Clean and updated and seemed to have all the tools they needed. Wish they had the ability to do procedures there ... All staff [at HFI] was very friendly and addressed you as if you were family. They tried to remember (and were successful) on what we were up to in our personal lives... [RN's] Welcoming, compassionate and knowledgeable .
How was your experience with Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute?
The best, hands down. Wouldn't let any of my friends go anywhere else. Professional, friendly, caring, knowledgeable. All the staff included. Biggest plus is having a clinic in Webster since I live in League City.

Describe the protocols Kemi Nurudeen used in your cycles at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I do not remember the names of the medications and the step by step process is a bit blurry but I can do my best: Had a consult including my ultrasound and notice my follicles not fully developing to ovulate, had my husband do a sperm sample as well. Results came back which called for IVF for best chance of pregnancy. Histerscopy (spelling), shots in the belly to develop follicles, egg retrieval, progesterone shots for ~12 weeks in the hip with the embryo placement within the 12 weeks.

Describe your experience with Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
No weaknesses in my book. Location was perfect for getting the league city area patients. Clean and updated and seemed to have all the tools they needed. Wish they had the ability to do procedures there but with the few times I needed them it was okay having to drive into Houston, just prefer not to.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kemi Nurudeen at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute.
Mostly OOP. Insurance did cover a substantial amount of cost for medication.

She [Dr. Nurudeen] is super open to questions or concerns...We have completed 2 iui cycles. We used clomid before iui, and then progesterone suppositories after. We utilized donor sperm...if all embryos looked good, they would encourage no more than 2...is caring, warm and friendly. She always shows compassion and support...She is completely transparent in the process, the expectations and realities while still optimistic, supportive and confident. We feel that she is 100% behind us personally, and shares the goal of family building.
One time, there was a missing paper between the sperm storage facility and the office [of Houston Fertility Institute] . It was rectified within 45 minutes...Strength: communication, locations, lots of services, talented staff Weakness: you wont see your doctor every time you go in, and they won't necessarily be the one to do an iui, but will be the one do more invasive treatments...Judi [nurse] cried with me when I miscarried and supported me emotionally through our next attempt. She was just as disappointed in the outcome as I was.

Dr. Nurudeen's dedication to her work and patients is outstanding. Having to deal with hundreds of hormonally challenged, emotional women on a daily basis should win her a medal of honor. She takes each case personally and fights to make miracles happen for each and every one of them...'m sure I wasn't her most challenging case, but she never made me feel any less important.
Houston Fertility Institute- Clear Lake's strength is how well they educate their patients, and take time explaining everything. The only negative part of our experience was only have one donor egg make it. I would want a new patient to know they are in good hands...The nursing staff at HFI- Clear Lake is amazing. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them. They truly care about their patients. I will never be able to thank them for all they have done.

Describe the protocols Kemi Nurudeen used in your cycles at Aspire Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The first round of IVF I wasn't responding to the shots administered in my stomach. The second round we did the shots in my arm and I responded better at first. We got 4 eggs and two were normal but did not fertilize. We bought 8 donor eggs and only one made it.
