How was your experience with Laura Meyer at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center?
Dr.Meyer was an incredibly patient and supportive doctor. I had apprehension moving forward with IVF after my 3 failed IUIs, but she never discouraged me from trying something new, and was open to trying other options I inquired about, prior to moving forward with IVF.
During the beginning stages of my IVF cycle, I went through a separate traumatic experience unrelated to my fertility. When Dr. Meyer found out from Dr.Brauer, she personally called me to ask how I was doing. I don't know any doctors that would take the time to reach out to their patients this way. I was really touched and am so appreciative for all her support.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Meyer at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center?
To know that you are in safe hands, and to trust Dr. Meyer's suggestions when opting to try something different.
As an example, when my first ivf transfer didn't work, Dr. Meyer suggested I try a natural cycle, based on seeing this work for patients in similar circumstances. I was nervous at first, but trusted her judgement and opted to try the crinone gel versus the progestrone shots. Now, here I am 14 weeks later in my second trimester! I'm so glad I trusted her to try something different.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Meyer at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center?
Dr.Meyer, Nicole and the rest of the nurses at GF were always so friendly whenever I came in for an appointment. They all remembered my name and would ask how I was doing. Dana at the front desk was also amazing, and did an incredible job answering any questions I had whenever I called in or saw her.
Describe the protocols Laura Meyer used in your cycles at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center and their degree of success.
My treatment based on an unexplained infertility diagnosis, involved 3 IUIs with clomid. I then requested to try Letrozole with timed intercourse. I tried Letrozole for 3 months before moving forward with IVF.
For my retrieval Dr. Meyer had me take Gonal F and Menopur, which helped produce 18 eggs. 4 embryos made it to day 5 and 6, and 3 resulted in viable embryos after PGS testing.
For my first frozen transfer, I took the progestrone shots which resulted in a chemical miscarriage. After my first failed attempt, Dr. Meyer suggested I try something different with my second frozen transfer, and had me try a natural cycle. She made this suggestion based on seeing success with similar patients. The natural cycle involved taking crione gel inserts 3 times daily, and 1 tablet of estrace. This attempt resulted in a positive pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center. (Assigned nurse: Nicole)
Nicole was another reason why I trusted Greenwich Fertility so much. She was an incredible support system, and was always there for me whenever I called for questions to set my mind at ease. She would check up on me regularly even when she wasn't calling to give test results, and made me feel like I was a priority. I was very lucky to have Dr. Meyer and Nicole throughout my fertility journey.
Describe your experience with Greenwich Fertility and IVF Center.
The entire team at Greenwich Fertility was always so warm and supportive. Dana at the front desk was amazing. She was so helpful with all of my insurance frustrations, and would follow up regularly until any issues were resolved. She was also super supportive and a great voice to have at the end of the line whenever I would call in. I always preferred going to the Tuckahoe office because of Dana.
While at GF, I also saw Dr. Brauer. She like Dr. Meyer truly cares for her patients, and provided me with such reassurance and support throughout my journey.
All the other nurses at GF were very knowledgeable, helpful and supportive. The team is incredibly unique and unlike any doctor's office. They truly care for your well being, and the hope for a successful outcome.
