Success w/ Doc Too early to know
He completed my hysteroscopy procedure and made the experience as pleasant as it could be. He did the egg retrieval procedure and made sure I had all viable information available to me and what next steps I should try to take. when it was not successful...He has excellent bedside manner especially when you have to do outpatient procedures either under anesthesia or not.
The [Sincera Reproductive Medicine] nursing staff were good and followed up the next day after each procedure. They had good bedside manner when doing outpatient procedures and ensure my care and well being while in the surgical center...The clinic is good and they keep you informed as to your treatment, next steps and appointments in advance. The only issues was they schedule a few appointments and was unaware of the time and had to follow up.

Only issue was that an appointment was made with an outside facility and I was unaware of it when I received the call. I had to rearrange my schedule but it was eventually conveyed at an appointment I had prior to the outside facility appointment

Dr. Barmat is very direct but very honest and upfront. He genuinely cares but will not waste your time on things he does not feel are necessary or that will not work. I've always felt like he had my best interest and truly cared.... Testosterone protocols, which allowed for the follicles to start around the same time. I often experienced issues where one follicle would take off in size and this protocol has brought me the most success with number of eggs retrieved.
Billing [Abington Reproductive Med] lacks on communication and responsiveness. A great group of doctors, however they all have different approaches or suggestions which at times is conflicting and confusing.... Overall the nurses are great. There are a few that I felt had attitude in their tone. I do understand the job is demanding but as infertility patients we are extremely vulnerable. I do not think any were lacking knowledge or assistance but some were definitely more friendly and more compassionate then others.
How was your experience with Larry Barmat at Sincera Reproductive Medicine (FKA Abington Reproductive Medicine)?
Very smart, looks at your best interest and never seems about the money. Listens and provides honest feedback. Supports thoughts and ideas but also only within reason. Goes through all options, discussed experimental ideas but then advises if not necessary for your current situation. Compassionate but not too emotional.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Barmat at Sincera Reproductive Medicine (FKA Abington Reproductive Medicine)?
His empathy can appear dry.

[Dr. Larry Barmat is a] Great doctor, very knowledgeable. Amazing bedside manner and treated you like a real person. Brought humor to the situation when all you wanted to do was cry. Very patient and kind. We are very lucky to have him as our doctor.... We started with clomid which did not work and then moved on to another pill. That made me ovulate but it did not work again so we switched to the injectibles. None produced a full term pregnancy
I couldn’t love the staff at Abington more. They are beyond compassionate and friendly. They really make you feel like they are the only one they are caring for... Morning hours are def a strength, the only weakness is that you have to pay to park. The friendly staff, down to even the receptionist and billing people. If they say they will return your call that day, they always do. You never sit and wait for your appts, they are very timely.

Dr. Barnard was my favorite doctor at Abington. He was always compassionate and spent time with me answering every question I had. Dr. Barmat even called me after my miscarriage to explain what had been wrong with the baby....My very first cycle was not successful. So for the second, they did ICSI in case the shell of my eggs was too hard. That cycle resulted in my daughter. When we went back for baby #2, they had switched from injectable progesterone to progesterone suppositories. Because I responded better to the shots, we switched back to that.
One of their top benefits is the number of satellite offices meaning you don’t have to drive to Abington for every appointment. All staff is very experienced and interact with couples all day. They know how hard the process is and are always compassionate and respectful....i never had a negative experience with any of the staff at Abington....Dr. Barnard was my favorite doctor at Abington.

Dr. Barmat has the best bedside manner. He knows his stuff and takes time for every patient. He listens and cares...he takes time to see how you are doing and has a normal conversation with you about everything (vacations, family, marriage, etc.). We never feel rushed and he answers every question with respect and care.
She [nurse of Sincera Reproductive Medicine] s very organized and presenting lots of information very well considering there was so much to cover...Average as compared to other places we looked into. We took out a loan...financing was easy...Dr. Barmat has the best bedside manner. He knows his stuff and takes time for every patient.
How was your experience with Larry Barmat at Sincera Reproductive Medicine (FKA Abington Reproductive Medicine)?
Dr. Barmat has the best bedside manner. He knows his stuff and takes time for every patient. He listens and cares. I have never felt rushed when speaking to him. I honestly don't know how he does it. My only 'bad' experience was when he was a little optimistic of recovery time and pain after egg retrieval. He said it would be easy but I was in a lot of pain after. He was so calm but I was not. His calm was helpful but I would have preferred if he told me, it was going to hurt like xxxx.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Larry Barmat at Sincera Reproductive Medicine (FKA Abington Reproductive Medicine)?
Go in open minded.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Sincera Reproductive Medicine (FKA Abington Reproductive Medicine).
Experiences with Kelsey Cuff were fantastic. She complements Dr. Barmat very well. She was attentive and knowledgeable. She is very organized and presenting lots of information very well considering there was so much to cover. Dawn Marie was awful on the other hand. I felt like I was at an auction and she was trying to beat her last score on how fast she could talk or how quickly she could get us out of there. She never introduced herself or the other woman standing in the room looking at our personal info. When asked to slow down, she seemed agitated and then condescending (speaking to me as if I was a child or slight learning disability). She proceeded to share with my dates to remember one after another instead of just printing them out for me. Seemed very confusing and unorganized.
