Success w/ Doc Too early to know
So far she [Dr. Wolf] has been awesome. She has had empathy with me and my husband and has been very kind. I have had 0 problems with her at all. I know she is a busy doctor and has many patients under her care but I have never felt rushed while being seen by her. ... She has always been considerate of per existing conditions and she called me the day after my surgery to check up on me.
My only complaint is that monitoring hours are between 6:30 - 7:30am. I love very close to my clinic [RMA of MI] and the clinic is close to my job. I found myself having to get up very early to go for monitoring when I didn’t have to be anywhere for several hours after. I’ve been very sleep deprived during this whole experience because of this. ... Always calls as soon as she has information for me, quick to call back whenever I left messages with questions.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Be patient. This process is quite frankly, terrible, but having a good compassionate doctor makes it easier.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
When dr wolf preformed my lap surgery, she knew I was nervous. She sat on the side of the bed and talked to me until my general anesthesia kicked in and I fell asleep. She has always been considerate of per existing conditions and she called me the day after my surgery to check up on me.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
With my previous endocrinologist, I was being over medicated for my hypothyroidism. We changed my medication from armour thyroid to levothyroxin because the dosage on the levo is more precise. I had a laporscopic surgery to diagnose and clear up some of my endometriosis. I was put on injectable medications (gonal f and hcg) for follicle growth and ovadryl to force ovulation. I have completed two failed IUI cycles and in the middle of my third.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Wolf is so kind and really knows her stuff...She tells it like it is and is blunt and upfront about everything...put all of her patients into baby boot camp upon starting with her. It includes, a low carb diet, exercise everyday to draw the excess insulin into your muscles which helps make healthier eggs. Plus a cocktail of supplements geared toward infertility. As far as protocols, she starts you out slow with letrozole and the trigger shot with timed intercourse before moving onto injectables with timed intercourse. She does these for a few cycles each before moving onto treatments like iui and IVF. Unless you the patient say otherwise, this is generally how she does it. At least for me it was.
She [nurse at RMA of Michigan] is so knowledgable and kind and helpful! I got very lucky with her!...Morning monitoring is from 6:00-7:30am. You sign in and the first time your name is called is for bloodwork and the second is for ultra sound. For the ultra sound, you either see dr wolf or dr Miller...it is approximately $8,500 for an egg retrieval not including medication and monitoring. It is approximately $300 for an IUI procedure not including medication and monitoring.
How was your experience with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr Wolf is awesome. She tells it like it is and is blunt and upfront about everything. She is a breath of fresh air and if you get a negative pregnancy test, she is so sad about it. She comforted me and told me that we will get there. It’s a marathon not a sprint. I can’t imagine seeing anyone else but her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Be open to her style. She is blunt and doesn’t sugar coat anything. Some people can’t handle that and like to be coddled by their dr. I need the facts. If something is just not going to work for me and it’s time to move onto the next step, I want to know it. Which is what she gives.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr Wolf is so kind and really knows her stuff. She tells it like it is and doesn’t sugar coat anything which I love about her. I took a 4 year break from seeing her and when I came back she remembered little details about my life that I couldn’t believe. She’s absolutely wonderful.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
BABY BOOT CAMP! Dr Wolf put all of her patients into baby boot camp upon starting with her. It includes, a low carb diet, exercise everyday to draw the excess insulin into your muscles which helps make healthier eggs. Plus a cocktail of supplements geared toward infertility.

Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Nicole)
I have had two nurses assigned to me since being a patient at RMA. My first nurse from 4 years ago has since retired and my new nurse is Nicole and she is amazing! She is so knowledgable and kind and helpful! I got very lucky with her!
Describe your experience with RMA of Michigan.
Trust in the process. Yes waking up early every couple of days isn’t the greatest but you just have to remind yourself why you are doing it. Trust that the drs know what that are doing. Trust that they have your best interest at heart. Just trust and have faith. You got this!
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Michigan.
Morning monitoring is from 6:00-7:30am. You sign in and the first time your name is called is for bloodwork and the second is for ultra sound. For the ultra sound, you either see dr wolf or dr Miller. They switch off days of monitoring. Don’t worry they fully communicate with each other. Then you go home and get a call from your nurse later in the day to let you know how your bloodwork was and if you doseage needs to change or stay the same and when to come in next. It’s pretty easy and straight forward. Monday’s and Friday’s are definitely the busiest. I try to get there as early as I can of those days if I’m scheduled.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
I don’t know all of the monitoring costs because my insurance covers a good portion of those but it is approximately $8,500 for an egg retrieval not including medication and monitoring. It is approximately $300 for an IUI procedure not including medication and monitoring.
Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
I have no opinion on this as I have only every had one embryo and it was transferred fresh on day 3.

Dr. Wolf asks questions about our life, is honestly interested in me as a person. She wanted to see pictures of our recent wedding and honeymoon. She looks me in the eye, smiles, has physical contact. She feels like a friend!...I met with Dr. Wolf at my consultation, as well as when things weren't going as planned. She also did all but one of my ultrasound checkups during egg development. She was not in the office for one, but all ultrasounds are done by doctors so they can see things first-hand, instead of looking at a picture.
I love having a personal nurse [at RMA of Michigan], and not just a "nurse line". Lauren always takes the time to respond to emails, gives me as much detail as I need, and often calls me after emails if I need a lengthy response...It is the typical pricing for our area...Renee in the financial dept explained everything fully, and understood when we needed an extra day or two to pay...I have no weaknesses to report. Patients should know that the 6:30-7:30 blood test call time is short, so it is busy. Don't expect to be in and out quickly.

Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
Thyroid meds, estrogen priming, Gonal-F. First round was not producing enough eggs, so we switched to IUI, which did not produce pregnancy, but we weren't really expecting it to. We are adding Chlomid for the upcoming round of IVF.

They are super friendly, taking away so much of the stress that I experienced at IVF Michigan. Renee in the financial dept explained everything fully, and understood when we needed an extra day or two to pay. I mean, they know we are going to since we have already spent so much money and know that we cannot continue without paying. I have no weaknesses to report. Patients should know that the 6:30-7:30 blood test call time is short, so it is busy. Don't expect to be in and out quickly.

Dr. Wolf took the time to ask questions and understand our expectations. We suffered a loss due to pre- term labor and she took our care personally after that. She made sure we knew we had options and she would support our journey towards another baby. We always feel respected and important at RMA.... Dr. Wolf is good at what she does and wants every family to have a happy ending. She made our family feel comfortable and respected. She was always prepared and willing to do whatever she could for a successful pregnancy. She was open and honest with her expectations.
Strengths [of RMA of MI]- knowledgeable, friendly, clean, helpful Weaknesses- far from our home, appointments are early in the AM The clinic is very busy- that I believe is a testament to their good work, but scheduling an appointment may take longer than you want it to... Nicole [a nurse] is always positive and available to help with questions. She responds in a timely manner with complete and accurate answers. I love that she is so reliable and friendly.

Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
Originally we tried IUI with no help from fertility meds. My body looked ready but was unable to get pregnant. She changed the plan quickly and suggested some low dose meds to help. I do not remember the meds/ dosages from the first round of treatment. I was able to get get pregnant with twins with the help of 15ml of low dose HCG and 75 of Gonal. My first pregnancy resulted in losses shortly after birth. The next time we met with Dr. Wolf she suggested seeing a Dr. in Chicago for an abdominal cerclage. We met with Dr.Haney and had the procedure done. I was diagnosed with incompetent cervix the first pregnancy and with the high chance of multiples again, Dr. Wolf didn’t want to risk another loss. We tried another IUI in late 2015 with the help of the same meds and became pregnant with my daughter. Dr. Wolf remained aggressive with the meds to increase the chance of the procedure working the first time- and it did! We are currently seeing her for a second baby.

Dr. Wolfe has listened and given us hope that we are still able to become parents. She treats us like a human and not just a number or payday....What an amazing doctor. She takes the time and energy into every patient she has. She knows that every case is different and will ensure you as the patient has the best odds of success...We began by using metformin due to PCOS. This medicine has a profound impact on insulin resistant PCOS and the retrieval process. Then the injections were pretty standard and due to the PCOS stimulation is a little bit more difficult. She carefully monitors the process.
They [RMA of MI] open very early which is a bonus so that the entire day is not wasted. They could really use a larger space but overall I was very happy with the clinic. I am happy that they offer an online payment option as well due to living over a thousand miles away the check will not be lost. All staff members are so very nice and are so pleasant to be around....Brittney takes the time with every patient to ensure you have the best experience possible
How was your experience with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
What an amazing doctor. She takes the time and energy into every patient she has. She knows that every case is different and will ensure you as the patient has the best odds of success. She will tell you if she wants to try something and explain why something did not work. She will be tough with you when you need her to be. She knows that metformin is not a comfortable feeling but she knows the benefits out weighs the minor discomfort in the entire protocol.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
The clinic is very busy but trust in them. She is very knowledgeable and will do everything in her power to grow your family. This is a long road ahead but know they are there to help and see you through the entire process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr. Wolfe has been amazing to my wife and I. The past doctors we had treated us like a pay day instead of listening. The doctors admitted to making mistakes in the first retrieval and making mistakes by causing hyper stimulation. They admitted to giving a very large dose of blood thinners which caused the third and final miscarriage. Dr. Wolfe has listened and given us hope that we are still able to become parents. She treats us like a human and not just a number or payday.

If any doctor decides to coast you please get a second opinion. That happened during one retrieval from a previous clinic which resulted in the loss of all eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Brittney )
Brittney takes the time with every patient to ensure you have the best experience possible. We were trying to save money and had to ask for all prescriptions be called into different places due to the cost. She did this without question or hesitation and it ultimately saved us thousands.

Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
Trust your doctor when discussing this. We wanted to transfer two and due to the age it was not advisable because of the additional complications that could arise with doubles. Every case is different so you need to have open and honest communication with your RE.

Dr. Wolf is very thorough and to the point. From the first time that we met with her, I felt that we were presented with all of the information needed. She is very scientific (different from another doctor I had seen), and very thorough. She follows through with everything she says she will do, and personally called me on several occasions to provide results and details which were helpful to hear directly from her... I was put on a protocol of supplements for endometrial health.
Strengths: - Monitoring was so easy. They [RMA of MI] run it like a triage (first come, first serve) between 6:30-7:30am, which is super efficient. - Organized, always call when they say they will and don't keep you hanging all day long (that happened to be elsewhere) - Provided all of the financial information on the upfront - there were no surprises at all - Did not take money from me after each appointment (this happened elsewhere) rather billed me once they tried to bill my insurance.

She follows through with everything she says she will do, and personally called me on several occasions to provide results and details which were helpful to hear directly from her. She also was very personable, asking about my job and my life, which helped make the time with her even better. She is so trustworthy as is Dr. Brad Miller her partner whom I saw for a few monitoring appointments on days that Dr. Wolf was not yet in.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
If you cannot get in right away, it's definitely worth the wait. As someone who went through a lot of traumatic episodes at a different fertility doctor locally, I wish that I had started off with Dr. Wolf as I truly think she is amazing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
You are assigned to one nurse throughout the entire process at RMA. It was so refreshing to have the continuity of the same person calling you with your results after every appointment. Additionally, Lynda Wolf's personality is calm and warm, she makes you feel like you mean something to her, and you are not just a number coming in and out the door at her office.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
I was put on a protocol of supplements for endometrial health. I did a mock FET cycle, where we did ERA (Endometrial Receptivity Analysis) to see how many hours of progesterone my body needed in order to be receptive to an embryo. This cycle as well as the full FET cycle were using injectable medication to get my lining as thick as possible.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Nicole)
All of the nurses at RMA were so kind. Ironically, Nicole my nurse was very easy to relate to. When she taught my husband and I how to do the PIO shots, she even referenced her experience doing them. It was really nice. All of the nurses, front desk staff and blood work ladies were personable, remembered my name and small details.

This was much appreciated as it did not feel like all they were in it for was the money. - Continuity of the same nurse that called every time (unless it was their day off) - Followed through on all asks immediately - Only doctors do ultrasounds which is how it should be!! Something to know... The doctors (Dr. Wolf & Dr. Miller) switch off in the early mornings for monitoring appointments, so you may not see your primary doctor every time. It's ok though because there is definitely communication between the doctors.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
I had a fee for my ERA Test which was $600 + blood work associated with the mock FET (around $1,000) (no fee). The FET fee was $3,7085 + blood work fee (awaiting bill)

Before we started with IUI’s we did an HSG test to make sure my tubes were not blocked, however one was so we planned accordingly. After 2 failed IUI’s we decided we needed to do an ERA test to see what was going on before we continued on to an IVF cycle. Once the ERA determined I needed an extra 12 hours of the progesterone we began our first cycle of hormones to retrieve our eggs, we retrieved 11 eggs 8 fertilized only 2 made it to a 3 day. we transferred a 3 day fresh embryo which resulted in a negative pregnancy test, we then went through another cycle of hormones for our next transfer of a 6 day frozen blast which resulted in a positive test.
This clinic [RMA of MI-Troy] is very busy! They set the labs in the morning to accommodate work schedules and lines form at the door at 6:15 every morning. Labs are very quick and all the staff we encountered must have been morning people because they all smiled and were very friendly!... The first nurse we had was very rude, then we had Nicole who we never interacted and never met. We did however see Jackie and Lauren almost every visit and they were wonderful, they answered any questions we had when the doctor wasn’t present and made sure if we needed anything we had it.
How was your experience with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr. Wolf was very down to earth and took the time to explain to us each treatment option and success rates, she took the time to call us rafter each Beta test to ensure that I was ok with the negative results and the positive one. She adjusted treatment plans according to what my body decided and always made sure I understood what it was my body would be going through. Our initial visit with her, was very emotional and even though we were both crying, she made sure I left there with a clear understanding of what she expected of me as the patient and what I should expect of her as the doctor. Her bed side manner was the best I have ever encountered. It wasn’t just a handshake and your on your way, she took the time every visit to ask how my wife and I both were doing, she always made sure we were comfortable and felt at ease. Even though she wasn’t the doctor who performed our transfers she was there with us, and watched/helped with the procedure as she could.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Listen to her! She is very knowledgeable, make sure if you have questions or doubts you bring them up to her and she will either get the answers for you or share her first hand knowledge of the subject.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
She was very personable and “motherly” my wife and I both felt very comfortable with her and she took the time to explain and answer any questions we had

The first nurse we had was very rude, then we had Nicole who we never interacted and never met. We did however see Jackie and Lauren almost every visit and they were wonderful, they answered any questions we had when the doctor wasn’t present and made sure if we needed anything we had it.
Describe your experience with RMA of Michigan.
This clinic is very busy! They set the labs in the morning to accommodate work schedules and lines form at the door at 6:15 every morning. Labs are very quick and all the staff we encountered must have been morning people because they all smiled and were very friendly!
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Michigan.
Monitoring hours were set from 6:30 am to 7:30 am. The lines formed at 6:15 am when they opened the doors, once inside it was quick and you could be on your way to work or to enjoy the rest of your day. If you were gonna be there after 7:30 am they were quick to accommodate you and get you in.

She [Dr. Wolf] moves quickly but will slow down if you need something extra explained or don’t understand. She is extremely intelligent and can explain exactly what is going on and why.... The first 3 cycles we used letrazole and ovadrel without other injectables. 1-2 eggs grew each cycle, but were never fertilized unforgivably. We used letrazole instead of clomid because there’s a better chance of not having resistance or a thinner lining. The 4th time we used injectables and progesterone, 2-3 eggs were grown, but non fertilized. We did 2 days of insemination each cycle.
A portion of the medications, ultrasounds and lab work was covered by insurance. Inseminations were not....[RMA of Michigan] Very kind, clean and organized. I did not like that they had the news on every morning. The news is stressful!! Also, when we had an IUI day we would be the first ones there, wait for our sperm to be thawed, but sometimes we would wait 2+ hours because others had to get simple ultrasounds done before we could get our IUI...

Dr Wolf is a very kind, thoughtful, and personable physician. She always gave us her full, connected attention during visits. As a LGBTQ couple she was very open and never made either of us feel out of place or in any way different from any other patients in the clinic...very flexible, competent... Her medical knowledge and skill as a practitioner are both top-notch. I would recommend her to anyone in the area.
They [costs at RMA of Michigan] were pretty average for IVF in this area - around 14k for a cycle, not including the meds we got at a separate pharmacy...Like any clinic that includes an on-site lab and fully outfitted facility, there are a lot of concurrent patients.

But once in with Dr Wolf or our nurse we always experienced attentive care and had plenty of time to ask our questions and discuss our treatments and next steps.

Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
As far as I know she doesn't do mini-IVF or natural cycle, just standard IVF with stimming meds - Gonal, menopur, cetrotide, ovidrel, and IM progesterone in sesame or olive oil. For IUI they like to do two inseminations each month, one the same day as an ovidrel injection and one 24 hours later. They prefer this to a 24 / 48 hour schedule for insemination, in case you ovulate from your own LH surge before the ovidrel is administered.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Michigan.
There was definitely a wait, depending on what time we arrived. The blood work and ultrasound window is very early in the morning (6:30am to 7:30am) which was fine for me because it (almost) always meant I didn't need to alter my work schedule but it was tough for my wife, who isn't much of an early bird.

Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
She's not a big fan of multiple embryos, but isn't heavy-handed about it. As long as the embryo she's transferring looks healthy she's more comfortable with a single transfer. We never really pushed this except when we were transferring some embryos that had a low chance of survival, in which case she was fine with us transferring two.

She [Dr. Lynda Wolf] is very empathetic and compassionate it is genuine. She was very honest and was never pushy. She was able to figure out why I was not getting pregnant and she was able to successfully fix those problems by getting me pregnant I am now 13 weeks pregnant. I had 6 failed vid cycles with previous infertility doctor... I had chronic endometritis which was keeping embryos from implanting. She treated me with antibiotics for 30 days and it got rid of the infection. She also discovered I needed another 24 hours of progesterone.
Honestly I have no complaints about RMA. They treated me with respect. I never had to wait long at my appointments. They are very organized. They open very early 6 :30 am which is wonderful patients can go there before they go to work.... Dr. Wolf and her partner Dr Miller chose to do a single embryo transfer on me which was successful because I am now pregnant with a singleton at 46 years old it would not be safe for me to be pregnant with multiples. I am now a girl believer in the single embryo transfers.

I had a good doctor previously, but with dr.Wolf I just clicked. She had alternatives for us to try and had always made me feel like there are options and we are on the right path.... Dr. Wolf always says “please ask me anything this is your experience” and I think that really is key. Their are hard questions you need to sign your name next to when doing IVF so making sure you know where you stand on those issues with her medical input is key.
Friendly, warm staff. It [RMA of Michigan] is super clean and a nice environment. It is always busy so that can be both good/bad. They are extremely organized and thorough! Everyone you come in contact with is so willing to help and are very kind. Above all that they work together as a team to give you optimal care!... Loveeee my nurse! Calm, knows her stuff and always would call me back even after hours. It’s tough going through all this but she never fails if I need anything.
How was your experience with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Warm, honest and confident. Her attitude is like “we got this”, whichever path you choose “we got this”. The office is always quite busy, but I never feel like I’m just a number. I also like that they discourage multiple embryo transfers if you are in a position to need it. They give you the risks and encourage the best routine to keep you and your baby healthy. I like that.

I am only just starting so I don’t have much input here besides the fact that they scan you for endometriosis right off the bat. No one has ever told me I should look into that and sure enough post surgery they found some. I think every woman should at least start there so they know what they are dealing with. You can pick endo up on ultrasound machines...and for years we didn’t really have any answers.

I think they are awesome about this. They encourage one healthy embryo transfer and give the risks of multiples. If you don’t need to do multiple I think they really encourage the outcome to be both healthy for you and the baby.

Dr.Wolf treated me like family. When I was going through my miscarriage, I remember her hugging me so tight while she let me cry on her shoulder....She has an amazing energy about her. She’s honest, hopeful, and most of all- truthful. She explained everything in detail. Took time to explain everything to my husband and I. Our first appointment lasted well over an hour. She never seemed rushed. You can just tell she really cares. I honestly feel blessed to have been cared for by her.
The ENTIRE staff at RMA is AMAZING! From the nurses, to phlebotomists all the way to the front desk staff. Not once did I ever have an issue with anyone. Everyone was always friendly and helpful....The waiting room is a little small and can get packed early in the mornings when they do their “first come first served” ultrasounds and blood work in the morning. To me it wasn’t a big deal though. The strengths are all in the staff and the people that work there. They truly treat you like family.

I’ve never seen or experienced such great bedside manner as Dr. Wolf has at any other point in time. After I was able to conceive my son, and “graduated” from the clinic, I was actually sad that I wasn’t going to be able to see her anymore!

My initial consult with Dr. Wolf was about an hour, she answered every question I had and really listened to my story. She started to review my medical records when something caught her attention, the pathology report from my surgery indicated that I had endometrial hyperplasia, a condition that when untreated can lead to cancer. She immediately offered to start treating me, and adjusting my timeline of treatment. The doctor who preformed my surgery NEVER called to let me know these results.

Jaclyn [nurse at RMA of Michigan] was very compassionate, informative, and organized. She works exclusively with patients who are using donor eggs or adopted embryos...the cost we were quoted for an embryo adoption transfer cycle was around 5,000. The ERA test was around 700...They offer appointment throughout the day, and have ultrasounds and bloodwork in the early morning so you could make it to work or to wherever you needed to go. All the staff is so friendly, compassionate and can answer any questions you might have. They work as a team, and treat you like a patient, not a number.
How was your experience with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr. Wolf is very knowlegable. Her warm welcome and compassionate care make it easy to talk, ask questions, and feel comfortable with your treatment plan. I've seen her consistently at every visit, she knows you by name, and is such an encouragement! She is on time, respectful, and just an amazing doctor! She has restored hope during the infertility journey.

Just make the call. You won't regret it, have an open mind and heart, just because you had a negative experience at another office and doctor, doesn't mean you will with her! You CAN find Hope on your journey, and it starts with an amazing doctor such as Dr. Wolf!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
I had my initial fertility testing done at another doctors office, and I felt just like a number being passed off from one doctor to the next. My hope of starting a family was at an all time low: I was diagnosed with a chromosomal balanced translocation (unbalanced embryos will cause repeated miscarriages), and on top of that I needed surgery to remove polyps within my uterus. I decided to go get a second opinion from Dr. Wolf after going to a seminar held at her office. As soon as I walked into the doors at RMA I was greeted with such care and compassion. My initial consult with Dr. Wolf was about an hour, she answered every question I had and really listened to my story. She started to review my medical records when something caught her attention, the pathology report from my surgery indicated that I had endometrial hyperplasia, a condition that when untreated can lead to cancer. She immediately offered to start treating me, and adjusting my timeline of treatment. The doctor who preformed my surgery NEVER called to let me know these results. Dr. Wolf has treated me with such compassionate care. I have since ended the hyperplasia treatment and am preparing for a biopsy. I have been to see Dr. Wolf about once a week for the past 3 weeks. Every time I see her, she is always positive, direct, and such an encouragement. I feel comfortable talking to her, and feel confident in her experience and medical knowledge. She has truly changed my situation, and I couldn't be more greatful. I would recommend her to anyone facing infertility, I can't say enough good things. My heart is so thankful. Dr. Wolf has given me hope!
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
For the hyperplasia Dr. Wolf recommended 12 weeks of Megace treatment. She was very direct and informed me that it could cause some unpleasant side effects, but encouraged me to eat healthy and start a work out routine. As a result, I'm the healthiest I've ever been! With the balanced translocation, she was very honest, informative, and compassionate while bringing up options such as egg donation and embryo adoption. I have just started the medical protocol for an ERA cycle, Dr. Wolf has been amazing about being at every visit to do ultrasounds, answer questions and explain how/when to make medication (estrace and progesterone).
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Jaclyn)
Jaclyn was very compassionate, informative, and organized. She works exclusively with patients who are using donor eggs or adopted embryos. She calls after each appointment with results, and reminders of next appointments. She also gave her email for less frequent questions.
Describe your experience with RMA of Michigan.
Very convient location (for me, 10 minutes away) but it is right off the highway for others who have longer travel. They offer appointment throughout the day, and have ultrasounds and bloodwork in the early morning so you could make it to work or to wherever you needed to go. All the staff is so friendly, compassionate and can answer any questions you might have. They work as a team, and treat you like a patient, not a number.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
Our insurance covered routine monitoring, ultrasounds, and lab work. Unfortunately Michigan health insurance doesn't cover IVF, the cost we were quoted for an embryo adoption transfer cycle was around 5,000. The ERA test was around 700.
Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
Dr. Wolf recommended a single embryo transfer, and my heart was so relieved. Up on doing research that is what my husband and I felt comfortable with. Other doctors we met had very different opinions, and I'm so thankful dr. Wolf was able to explain why she recommends only one!

Dr. Wolf was incredibly knowledgeable, up to date on all of the latest statistics, tests, and procedure protocols long before any of the other clinics we did consults with. She came to check on us before and after every procedure and was always available for questions. She called us personally to share successful news and also not so great news...each time there was an issue, she was willing to change it.
They were great [at RMA of Michigan], from the front desk to finance, they all helped us immensely and were dedicated to their patients. The embryologist worked with us to preserve my husband’s very limited sperm that we’re salvageable and we are so grateful!...The nursing staff is amazing. They always respond to your phone call before the end of the day, and I’ve never once felt judged for asking anything.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Go see her! We live in an area where there are several clinics within a 3 hour radius. She is worth driving past the clinic that is closest to you because she is that good.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr. Wolf is the most amazing physician I have ever worked with. From the first time we met her, she has always taken her time (we’re talking hours) to discuss what is going on, what the plan is, and to answer ALL of the questions we have. The nursing staff is amazing. They always respond to your phone call before the end of the day, and I’ve never once felt judged for asking anything. When we had our miscarriage, Dr. Wolf cried with us, embraced us in a hug, and agreed to do everything she could to prevent it from happening again.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
I don’t remember now what exact protocols we used, but each time there was an issue, she was willing to change it.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Lisa Perry)
AMAZING! I loved that they never made me feel dumb or like I was unnecessarily worried about something. They always called me back on the same day, and we communicated with the same nurse ever single time. She was with us at all visits and knew us without looking at our chart.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Michigan.
Loved that they had a designated monitoring time as soon as they opened at 6:30. This allowed me to get there, be seen, and be back to work while missing as little as possible! We saw our doctor at almost every one of these appointments (except for every other weekend where the physicians alternated days off).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
Over two years, we spent just under 30k completely out of pocket for: operative hysteroscopy, IVF, miscarriage, embryo storage, 3 cancelled FETs, and ERA. Frozen transfers were $5000 and included all labs and monitoring (out of pocket) included in cost IVF plus transfer of two embryos (them or later) - $12,000 (everything included out of pocket) Miscarriage: 15,000 (out of pocket, surgery, genetic testing, anesthesia)
Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
They preferred to transfer single embryos in our situation (previous uterine malformation, physically demanding job where a multiple gestation pregnancy would be risky, etc), however it was the patients choice. They prefer to never transfer more than 2 embryos.

[Dr. Lynda Wolf is] Always warm and caring. Willing to discuss statistics and studies done to help us understand their recommendation for treatment and why only so many cycles before moving on to more aggressive treatment. She comforted me during my d&c for my miscarriage and called me personally with the results of the tissue analysis. Wonderful doctor... My first iui (rma does inseminations two days in a row) with injectable meds and trigger resulted in a miscarriage at 7 weeks due to a chromosomal abnormality. 2nd iui same treatment was negative. 3rd iui same treatment resulted in my daughter :)
Sometimes patients bring their other kids in to the waiting room [at RMA of Michigan] and I kind of wish there was a no kids policy...Lisa [nurse] was always empathetic and caring. She called me back the same day whenever I left a message with a question about my treatment... Iuis totaled around $1,300 for us plus meds. Medicated cycles without iuis ran less, between $330-700 depending on type of medications.

She comforted me during my d&c for my miscarriage and called me personally with the results of the tissue analysis. Wonderful doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
I read so many stories about people doing so many cycles of clomid or femara or without any drug at all with no success for years. Dr. Wolf explained that the likelihood of success for any one treatment (in my case anyway) peaked at 3-4 attempts. I know it's expensive, but it doesn't make sense to keep doing the same treatment more than your doctor says makes scientific sense. So, listen to Dr. Wolf :)
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
Dr. Wolf was the warmest, most caring doctor I've ever known. When I had a d&c for my miscarriage, she did the procedure and comforted me before it happened.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
I have PCOS/anobulation/hypothyroidism. I was put on levothyroxin to get thyroid level (not sure if t4 or what level exactly) was between a 1 and 2. Tried femara for a few cycles with a trigger and timed intercourse. Ovulation occurred but no success. Tried injectable meds (gonal f/follistim) with trigger and timed intercourse for a few cycles with no success. Ovulation occurred. A few times I had to take a month off because I overstimmed. My first iui (rma does inseminations two days in a row) with injectable meds and trigger resulted in a miscarriage at 7 weeks due to a chromosomal abnormality. 2nd iui same treatment was negative. 3rd iui same treatment resulted in my daughter :)

Describe your experience with RMA of Michigan.
It's pricy, but worth it. The doctors and nurses and great. Sometimes patients bring their other kids in to the waiting room and I kind of wish there was a no kids policy but understand that some people might be trying for their second, third, etc. Expect early appointments but it's nice so it doesn't cut into work time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
Our insurance covered some labs and the medication. Did not cover iui procedure or some other costs. Iuis totaled around $1,300 for us plus meds. Medicated cycles without iuis ran less, between $330-700 depending on type of medications. The initial consult was somehow covered by insurance.

Dr. Wolfe gained our trust from the get-go. She was very prepared for our consultation. Was knowledgeable about every entry of our chart and the testing we did previous to walking into RMA. She listened to each and every concern. Our plan was created and she was very candid about the challenges and although hopeful for our success, she prepared us for the worse with compassion.... We went straight to IVF. Thru testing, it was discovered I had blocked tubes caused by endometriosis
I felt the clinic [RMA of Michigan] to be welcoming. Most of the desk staff were kind, there were a few that I felt could offer a friendly smile. It feels very vulnerable walking into a fertility center, especially for the first time. I felt everyone was very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise. I was treated with respect and dignity from start to finish, as was my husband. I really felt valued as a patient and would highly recommend RMA to anyone.

She listened to each and every concern. Our plan was created and she was very candid about the challenges and although hopeful for our success, she prepared us for the worse with compassion. I feel she cared for us like she would her own family. I need all the information I can get and she shared even the technical aspects with us. I felt very comfortable with her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
I would wholeheartedly say, TRUST her!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
From our very first consultation, Dr. Wolfe was kind, compassionate and so knowledgeable of our chart. She made an effort to get to know us outside of our fertility story. She was honest, forthcoming and made us feel comfortable about our plan. She held my hand, wiped my tears, calmed my fears and hands down gave the best hugs.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
We went straight to IVF. Thru testing, it was discovered I had blocked tubes caused by endometriosis so IVF was basically the only option. She decided on an antagonist protocol, I don’t specifically recall why but we went that route. She also suggested we do ICSI as my husband and I are both on the older side and using the ICSI technique would be beneficial in choosing the strongest sperm to use.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of Michigan. (Assigned nurse: Chris)
Our nurse, Chris, was great. She was the head nurse at the clinic so we felt in good hands. She wasn’t quite as warm and fuzzy as Dr. Wolfe but always willing to answer any question and very prompt with returning phone calls. Some of the nurses that I would get when Chris wasn’t available, were not quite as compassionate but I got the feeling that the assigned nurses were all vested in their main cases. Overall, we were pleased with the nursing staff.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan.
We chose a multi cycle plan. I believe when everything was all said and done we spent around $30,000.
Describe Lynda Wolf's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of Michigan.
It was suggested, based on my age (37 at the time), that we transfer 2 embryos to better our chances of at least one implanted. Dr. Wolfe did prepare us for the chance of multiples, and we were fine with the idea.

She [Dr Wolf] is no nonsense, she followed our lead when appropriate and guided us to make decisions we were all confident with. I always felt at ease in a situation that is anything but comfortable. Honestly, when I got to the point in my pregnancies when I graduated from her care I was always a little sad to not have a reason to see her anymore. There was something very reassuring about Dr. Wolf and the whole clinic.
I wish going in I new that a lot of this is kind of a science experiment. Everyone responds to treatment differently. Going in I kind of felt like they [RMA of Michigan] had the system all worked out and it would be more one size fits all. That my be naive but it was a whole new world I knew little about. Our doctors and nurse really helped make it all manageable and even exciting....My nurse felt like my best friend while working with RMA. She was someone I knew I could call with any question or even for reassurance when I felt like I was overwhelmed by the whole process. She was my best ally and I knew she was there to make sure everything was set for success. She was right by my side though the whole process.

Tell her what you want and she'll do everything she can to make that happen. Also trust your nurses as much as she does.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Lynda Wolf at RMA of Michigan?
She was always there to answer questions. If I left a message with Dr Wolf or our nurse she got back to me right away. She always knew exactly what was going on in my life related to IVF and beyond. I feel like she celebrated our victories and grieved our set backs right along side us.
Describe the protocols Lynda Wolf used in your cycles at RMA of Michigan and their degree of success.
I followed an agonist. The first cycle with BCP - resulting in my first son. When trying for our second we matched the cycle that previously worked. For whatever reason, almost two years later that wasn't what I needed. Dr. Wolf changed course and had me add numerous nutritional supplements before my next cycle. That was a success resulting in my second son.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of Michigan.
Monitoring appointments were held in the morning before the scheduled appointments. (Something like 6am to 8am). Since I needed these several times a week it was great to get these out of the way before work. The appointments were extremely efficient and I was usually in and out in 15 minutes.

I like that a doctor does you ultrasound when you come in for a follicle check. I think Dr. Wolf has great bedside manner and is very respectful....She was on board with what I wanted to do before we moved on to the next steps, she answered all of my questions when asked and explained everything in detail. She did a surgery on me and respected my decision to not let her do certain things while she was doing the surgery. She is wonderful bedside manner and is sympathetic.
I was told that I could have my endometrial biopsy done there, but 2 days before the procedure they called and said that they [RMA] don’t do them for outside patients anymore. I had to scramble to find a facility that does them because it had to be done at a certain time in my cycle...I didn’t feel like she was very warm, it was very straight and to the point. She never really asked how I was doing or feeling.

Describe your experience with RMA of Michigan.
I like that a doctor does you ultrasound when you come in for a follicle check. I think Dr. Wolf has great bedside manner and is very respectful. I also like that the office opens early for labs and ultrasounds. However the office closes at 3 but people don’t answer the phone after 2:30. I also have a hard time reaching people at the front desk. I used this office also as a satellite office and I feel you are treated completely different. I was missed informed on a lot of things that they don’t test for when you are a satellite patient and it made me scramble because I wasn’t told until 2 days before the procedure was supposed to me done. It made me feel sad to be treated like an outsider because they are so kind when you are an actual patient.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at RMA of Michigan.

I had to scramble to find a facility that does them because it had to be done at a certain time in my cycle.

If you’re in it for a fight, meaning - you want a baby and you don’t need a lot of fluff - Dr Wolf is for you. If you need a lot of hand holding or want a slower more caring experience than RMA is not for you. It’s faster paced there, no nonsense.... Dr wolf is very straightforward and I like That. She also takes some risks which I like vs. some clinics that are too conservative. But they do see thousands of patients at RMA so it is hard to feel very special there.
[RMA of MI's] Weaknesses: the waiting room is so busy and feels very depressing. It’s first come first serve so there is a line if you get there before 6:15am. They usually have the news on the tv which is depressing but I think they’ve changed that as the last few times they had on something more uplifting. Strengths- I like That you get in and out early in the morning so you can get to work. The nurses are helpful and knowledgeable. The blood draw ladies are quick and good at their job.

Dr Wolf has incredible bedside manner. She makes you feel like family and she truly cares. ... We used a three day transfer as I didn’t produce a lot of eggs. We transferred all three as one didn’t look good at all and the other two were good contenders. ... If you’d like someone who is kind, compassionate and knows her stuff go to Dr Lynda Wolf ...

Dr wolf has a phenomenal memory and is very detailed. Her compassion is beautiful. I’ve seen her go into the lobby to comfort a distraught patient. I’ve seen her emotionally affected when I experienced an loss. She cares about what she does and I greatly admire her. I’m very impressed by her and she is a wonderful role model for young women because she is a successful and strong doctor. She carries the hopes and dreams of all of her patient on her shoulders and I’m sure that can be stressful.
I loved going to RMA. My assigned nurse was smart and attentive. Tonya who took my blood was warm and caring.....I believe I paid 7300 for a fresh cycle and around 3100 for a frozen plus medication... I loved my nurse Nicole! She was very knowledgeable and I was happy to have her as my nurse throughout my journey... Dr wolf is open to transferring more that one embryo.

Dr. Wolf has an amazing bedside manner. She is compassionate and caring. Her positive outlook made me feel at ease and I strongly feel that helped me relax.... Dr. Wolf was confident in trying IUI. My husband worked on the road and timimg was difficult. She knew that and made adjustments to my meds to make sure I was ready for the time he would be available. Dr. Wolf completed our family... I took clomid and used injectibles.
The entire process was great. I cant say enough about the practice. Everyone [RMA of Michigan] was wonderful and caring. Be prepared to get to the office early for ultrasounds as there are no appointments set. It is first come first serve... I was given 1 nurse to deal with through the process. Others were available if she wasnt though. She was wonderful. The entire staff is wonderful... My medications were covered by insurance and some of the procedures. I did nit pay more than $2500
