He [Dr. Bonaventura] was very nice and loves to talk. He will answer all of your questions. He is knowledgeable about invocell and and medical knowledge that comes with fertility treatments. He is not great at communication outside of the office. I was sick and it took him a day to even respond to my message...You barely see the doctors unless it's an important procedure (transfer, retrieval). They get you in and out as quick as possible.

They are super busy. They are not able to Fully explain things and leave lots of room To potentially make mistakes. I had to call daily to ask questions that were never talked about.

$8,000 for invocell and meds. All out of Pocket. My insurance covered nothing here.
