During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Manuel Doblado at Northern California Fertility Medical Center?
A lot of the time Dr. Doblado helped me with my need of accommodation.
My husband and i both Work a lot and coming in at the drop of a hat was hard. Dr doblado helped accommodate our needs by getting us in later and earlier than the regular clinic would allow. And for that i am greatful.
Describe the protocols Manuel Doblado used in your cycles at Northern California Fertility Medical Center and their degree of success.
I first started with 50mg of Clomid and trigger shots called Lupron. We did this for 2 months and unfortunately i only grew 1 follicle each time.
So after the trigger injection we would proceed with the IUI and then wait two weeks.
Unfortunately that didn’t result in pregnancy so we increased the Clomid to 100 and still 1 follicle and no Pregnancy.
Today we are in the process of IVF And i have just started birth control and will start injections in 3 weeks.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Northern California Fertility Medical Center. (Assigned nurse: Courtney)
The medical assistants are a little rough and not very compassionate. I don’t think they understand that we are women on hormones and failed pregnancies and attempts are devastating.
I felt like hearded cattle, once i got through the gate of IVF a whole new approach came forth.
The nurses are amazing and compassionate. I completely feel at home here.
Describe your experience with Northern California Fertility Medical Center.
If i were a new patient i would want to be aware that the providers are on cycles throughout the month.
Seeing one provider may not mean you will have a procedure again with them. They rotate to allow coverage of weekends and holidays.
Dr doblado only preformed one of the IUI’s and others filled in for him when needed.

Describe Manuel Doblado's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Northern California Fertility Medical Center.
