Dr [Lusine Aghajanova] was a bit cold and I felt that she came across a bit condescending...In some ways I felt that when i said I wasn't ready for IVF she became someone disinterested in the appointment...We had a second appointment and everything we discussed the first time seemed to be forgotten and a plan for IUI was sent to us even though we were clear we were only interested in starting with monitoring and timed intercourse. No rational for IUI given (no male factor etc)....
I wan't really assigned a nurse [at Stanford University]...no one ever answers the phone, like ever, it's hard to get any details or questions answered. Everything feels/is really disorganized and I felt that the staff seemed stressed. I really did feel like a number here, not personal at all. It's also a teaching facility so you need to be prepared to have 4-5 people in the room during your transvaginal ultrasound talking about you like you aren't there...
How was your experience with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
Dr was a bit cold and I felt that she came across a bit condescending. I have a medical background and would prefer my doctor to explain in more detail. I tried to communicate this to her and I feel that she didn't seem to want to say much at all (only answering very direct questions, no elaboration really). It made me feel like she just wanted to make a plan and get out of the appointment as quickly as possible. She also made some questionable commentary about a life choice that I have made that I found a little judgemental. I also asked a question related to a certain genetic question and she told me she had never heard of this association (even though it is well known in the literature) which made me lose more confidence. Honestly, I don't want to only write negative things, because I am sure for someone she would be a great fit, but for me it was a very bad match. Because of covid and online appointments and my insurance requiring me to use this clinic (and the very long wait to get a consult) I wasn't able to switch providers.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
I think you need to only choose this provider if you want very little information provided and are wanting efficiency and are able to fully place your trust in her.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
I felt that the doctor didn't really provide very personalized care. It was really difficult to get a hold of anyone at the clinic or to get answers to questions. Overall, I also felt that the doctor didn't really listen to my concerns or bother to explain reasoning for treatment suggestions. In some ways I felt that when i said I wasn't ready for IVF she became someone disinterested in the appointment. Also, no clear diagnosis or prognosis was presented to me and knowing what I know now, I feel that I lost a lot of time where more aggressive treatments could have been done. We had a second appointment and everything we discussed the first time seemed to be forgotten and a plan for IUI was sent to us even though we were clear we were only interested in starting with monitoring and timed intercourse. No rational for IUI given (no male factor etc) - made me lose confidence in the clinic.
Describe the protocols Lusine Aghajanova used in your cycles at Stanford University and their degree of success.
We weren't clearly given a diagnosis by the doctor (maybe she thought it in her mind?) but we had expressed wanting to start with letrozole or clomid and timed intercourse with monitoring. We had two consults where this was stated, but she seemed to keep pushing IUI. For me there was no rationale given for the IUI and in fact it was just going to cost way more for no clear reason (SA good). We were sent a financial estimate for this plan and at this point we decided we didn't have much confidence in the clinic so we looked into other options.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Stanford University.
This was my first clinic so it was hard to know what to expect, but overall I felt like everything at this clinic was so disorganized and impersonal. I wan't really assigned a nurse, I think the nurse emailed me once after my ultrasound with the on call doctor but overall it was one line, read like a text message rather than a professional email. I also responded with follow up questions and no one actually answered me. Frustrating overall.
Describe your experience with Stanford University.
I don't have much experience so it is hard to say overall. Stanford has nice facilities overall and everything looks nice. The patient portal is really nice especially compared to my current clinic which basically doesn't have one. But the weaknesses of this clinic is that no one ever answers the phone, like ever, it's hard to get any details or questions answered. Everything feels/is really disorganized and I felt that the staff seemed stressed. I really did feel like a number here, not personal at all. It's also a teaching facility so you need to be prepared to have 4-5 people in the room during your transvaginal ultrasound talking about you like you aren't there. yikes. I am so happy we left this clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University.
We didn't end up going through the procedure there but for an IUI the total cost estimate before our insurance coverage and some random arbitrary discount was estimated at $3850 (510$ per ultrasound) and this is not including labs and potential meds. Of course after our insurance estimate was $1300 + labs and meds.

saw Dr Aghajanova like 3 times during my 4 IUI journeys (6 months)...Every consultation I saw someone different to have the ultrasound, all very quickly to have the next patient in...I didn't feel that I was under the care of Dr Aghajanova since after 4 failed IUI, she never sit with me to re evaluate my case and set a different plan....I didn't feel empathy from her....
I saw several nurses [at Stanford University] and only one of them was really compassionate and willing to help. Get a hold of a nurse is very difficult since the phone lines are always busy....My chart app is very user friendly. The billing summary is not very clear...Refill was sent to the pharmacy incomplete. Pharmacist and I had to called the clinic for 1 hour to get a hold of someone to fix it...
How was your experience with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
Dr Aghajanova gave us faith to undergo to the IUI process and explained to us how the process work. After that every ultrasound I had someone different taking care of me even on weekdays. I didn't feel that I was under the care of Dr Aghajanova since after 4 failed IUI, she never sit with me to re evaluate my case and set a different plan. On the last consultation I was really affected and crying was asking about side effects that I felt so I asked to talk with the Dr. When reviewing with her the IVF option I didn't feel empathy from her and was very confusing when explaining us the carrier screening. She ended up referring us to the genetic counselor for second time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
Research for supporting and human Dr that have a good reputation on the fertility field before going to Stanford.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
I saw Dr Aghajanova like 3 times during my 4 IUI journeys (6 months). I was so confused and depressed so I asked to have her to review my case and set a meeting with me. I was so disappointed to see that nobody cares about your questions or concerns. Every consultation I saw someone different to have the ultrasound, all very quickly to have the next patient in.
Describe the protocols Lusine Aghajanova used in your cycles at Stanford University and their degree of success.
Letrizole cycle with ovidrel trigger. 4 failed IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Stanford University. (Assigned nurse: I was not assigned with a nurse )
Poor communication. I saw several nurses and only one of them was really compassionate and willing to help. Get a hold of a nurse is very difficult since the phone lines are always busy.
Describe your experience with Stanford University.
The clinic have a lot of patients and they work weekends. Get a hold of someone to help you is so complicated. Phone lines are always busy ( exceptfor billing department). My chart app is very user friendly. The billing summary is not very clear. If you don't have insurance coverage, you will need to make prepayments and there is not clear how the deductions are made.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University.
I had to paid around $3000 per cycle

Describe the protocols Lusine Aghajanova used in your cycles at Stanford University and their degree of success.
Start clomid from cycle day 3 for 5 days. This was followed my Follistim injection of 75 IU for 5 or sometimes 4 days. Around 13 or 14th day I got my bhcg injection and thn IUI 36 hours later. I also took progesterone intra vaginally two days after iui and I would continue that until my blood test. They asked my to stop of bhcg comes out negative
Describe your experience with your nurse at Stanford University. (Assigned nurse: Tracy)

Describe the costs associated with your care under Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University.
It’s very expensive :( This is the worst part of infertility treatment. They rip off our pocket. Finances and bills is a very big reason that I felt literally helpless at times.

She [Dr. Aghajanova] did not seem to know information from my chart each time I went in for an appointment. ... She told me she would have preferred to see me when I was 35 or so. Which made me cry, because what am I supposed to do, turn back time? She did not seem empathetic at all that we were acknowledging my advanced maternal age, and were asking for her support. ...

Scheduling appointments was around their [Standford University] schedule, and they often did not have times that worked well for me. Although you are assigned a primary attending physician, you will be seen by anyone. ... My communications with the care team were mainly via the online messaging system, and I found it extremely frustrating to actually get answers to my questions on scheduling cycles, what my protocol would be, getting my prescriptions called in, and when I needed to start medications.
How was your experience with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
I went in for a consultation regarding fertility treatment because we wanted to try to freeze embryos, before I got too much older (I'm early 40s). She told me she would have preferred to see me when I was 35 or so. Which made me cry, because what am I supposed to do, turn back time? She did not seem empathetic at all that we were acknowledging my advanced maternal age, and were asking for her support. What made it worse is that I had tried to schedule a consultation with the clinic years earlier, and they did not return my calls. We did conventional IVF for our first cycle, since there was no male factor. For our second cycle, we signed consents to do the same, since we were not given any information about why some of our eggs did not fertilize normally. However, part way through the cycle, we were told our treatment plan was supposed to be ICSI because some eggs fertilized with multiple sperm last time. We had to resign consents because we were not given information at the beginning of the cycle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
Ask for the results of your treatment, and what they mean. Ask what your treatment plan is, and why. Do not expect her to provide this information without direct questioning.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lusine Aghajanova at Stanford University?
She did not seem to know information from my chart each time I went in for an appointment.
Describe the protocols Lusine Aghajanova used in your cycles at Stanford University and their degree of success.
Cycle 1 Priming + Antagonist protocol: Estradiol priming (9 days), Gonal F 300 + Menopur 150 stimulation (12 days) and Ganirelix (last 5 days), HCG + Gonal F 400 trigger. Presumably chosen to be gentler, and due to advanced maternal age. Baseline follicle count was supposedly 14, but did not all develop at the same rate. 5 eggs retrieved, conventional IVF, 3 fertilized normally + 2 fertilized with multiple sperm, 3 blastocysts at day 7 with grades 4AA 6BB 6CB. Cycle 2 Priming + Flare Protocol: Estradiol priming (10 days), Microdose Lupron 10 (16 days) and Gonal F 300 + Menopur 150 (13.5 days), HCG + Gonal F 400 trigger. Presumably chosen for above, and to try to get more eggs mature. 7 eggs retrieved, ICSI all 7 mature, 6 fertilized, 3 blastocysts at day 6 with grades 4BC 4CC 6CC. Cycle 3 Antagonist Protocol: not yet started, but presumably birth control pills, Gonal F 225 + Menopur 150 + Ganirelix, HCG + Lupron trigger. Presumably chosen to get follicles to develop at the same time.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Stanford University.
Although the doctor has a specific nurse and care coordinator as part of my care team, I did not actually find I interacted with those people primarily. And didn't even interact with my doctor primarily. My communications with the care team were mainly via the online messaging system, and I found it extremely frustrating to actually get answers to my questions on scheduling cycles, what my protocol would be, getting my prescriptions called in, and when I needed to start medications. And the questions I had regarding my treatment that were meant for the doctor apparently did not get conveyed, or at least didn't get answered.
Describe your experience with Stanford University.
Scheduling appointments was around their schedule, and they often did not have times that worked well for me. Although you are assigned a primary attending physician, you will be seen by anyone. Which sounds good, so you don't have to schedule around one person. But seems like it really means your treatment plan is not understood by the people you are seeing. Or maybe it is that my particular doctor didn't do a good job of documenting my treatment plan in my chart, so other doctors couldn't answer the questions I had.
What specific things went wrong at Stanford University?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Stanford University.
I was given a schedule for when to expect results. I asked if the holidays would impact those dates. I was told no. I called a week after they said they would be available, because I hadn't gotten them yet. They didn't have them, but finally got them later that day. We weren't told our treatment plan changed to ICSI or why. When we finally got this information, I was not told my partner had to come in to fill out paperwork again. My trigger medication was not included in my initial prescription, so I had to arrange a separate delivery. They didn't do a good job estimating how many refills I would need when my cycle was running long, so I had to schedule multiple next day deliveries.

Dr. Aghajanova is very kind and caring. I felt like she was really rooting for me. ...I felt like she cared. She comforted me through my miscarriage. The only areas for improvement would be better explanations and after my last transfer failed I felt it took awhile for her to reach out to me, but she did reach out. ... We used ICSI since we had MFI. We had a pregnancy that ended in miscarriage so we repeated protocol with final embryo and that resulted in chemical pregnancy.
Staff [Standford U] are all great. Billing department is terrible. If you are OOP like me they say they will help set up a payment plan and then they tell you they can’t.

Dr Aghajanova took as much time as necessary to explain to us all the tradeoffs involved, risks and our chances to get pregnant. She is both extremely patient and knowledgeable, but most of all very passionate about her job. You can tell she takes this personally...is both candid and competent. She left an impression of someone who knows exactly what couples like us were going through. She never rushed us. She explained everything in easy to understand terms without too much sugarcoating - while still being compassionate. We can't recommend her more.
