[Dr. Zeitoun is] clever, witty and straightforward, but definitely not the warmest doctor who will hold your hand throughout the process. He doesn't think supplements help with egg quality and said bluntly, "If you have five embryos, I'd put all five back into you because there's a 5% chance that any of them will make it after age 40."...Don't expect a warm and fuzzy experience...asked me if I spoke English during the embryo transfer. I couldn't tell if he was joking or if he had mistaken me for one of his other patients (there was a Chinese woman before me who didn't speak English).
She [nurse at Global Fertility and Genetics] was extraordinarily compassionate and thorough. I corresponded with her the most throughout the cycle in regards to appointments and medication changes...The embryologist, nurses, assistants were all very kind and patient. The clinic is clean, quiet - everything you would need an IVF facility to be. My only gripe was that Dr. Zeitoun asked me if I spoke English during the embryo transfer. I couldn't tell if he was joking or if he had mistaken me for one of his other patients (there was a Chinese woman before me who didn't speak English).
