Dr. Gualtieri took the time to get to know me and give me individualized care...had wonderful bedside manners and he always listened to mine and my husband’s concerns. He would also take the time to call from his personal cell phone if needed to discuss things after office hours...He was always polite and took the time to explain everything in an easy to understand manner. He would take our concerns and financial situation into consideration and adjust the treatment accordingly (i.e. increase the dosage of pills/injectables). He was successful at getting me pregnant in May of 2017 and now I am currently 2 months pregnant again thanks to his medical care.

How was your experience with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Dr. Gualtieri would always take the time to explain the risks and benefits of each treatment for each cycle. He was always polite and took the time to explain everything in an easy to understand manner. He would take our concerns and financial situation into consideration and adjust the treatment accordingly (i.e. increase the dosage of pills/injectables). He was successful at getting me pregnant in May of 2017 and now I am currently 2 months pregnant again thanks to his medical care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Have an open mind but also have your own plan of action and he be prepared to convey that plan to Dr. Gualtieri- he will listen.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Dr. Gualtieri had wonderful bedside manners and he always listened to mine and my husband’s concerns. He would also take the time to call from his personal cell phone if needed to discuss things after office hours.
Describe the protocols Marc Gualtieri used in your cycles at IVF Florida and their degree of success.
I have PCOS so for my first pregnancy I needed to be on the highest dosage of Metformin to help with my levels. I was on Letrozal/Femara starting with 2.5 mg and only having success with ovulating on 7.5 mg. I also took 75 & 150 iu of GonalF injectables and Ovidrel (“trigger shot”). For my first pregnancy we did an IUI with 7.5 mg of Letrozal and injectables for my second pregnancy we did the same medication but with timed intercourse.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I went to multiple locations of IVF Florida (Jupiter, Margate, Port St. Lucie, Wellington) and the nurses at each clinic location were knowledgeable and compassionate.
Describe your experience with IVF Florida.
It is a large practice but I still felt like the nurses/Dr. Gualtieri took the time to get to know me and give me individualized care. The only weakness is the wait time I would experience sometimes due to a large amount of patience waiting to be seen (this was the case even when I had an exact appointment time and arrived early).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida.
Between both pregnancy we spent roughly $20,000
Describe Marc Gualtieri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVF Florida.
Dr. Gualtieri would also warn us about the chances and risks of multiples but that was never a concern of ours.

He [Dr. Marc Gualtieri] is extremely intelligent, very committed to making sure I understand my particular case & condition, gets back to me in a timely manner & always answers my questions of concern...He always explains everything to me in lamen terms & I always walk out like I get it. I am a bit over weight and he has never made me feel any less deserving of having a baby like my previous doctor. He suggested eating better & integrating exercise just to stay healthy & get my sugar levels under control. He can relate to me and that is impressive!

How was your experience with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Dr G, is very well educated and highly skilled on what methods work for each individuals case. He always explains everything to me in lamen terms & I always walk out like I get it. I am a bit over weight and he has never made me feel any less deserving of having a baby like my previous doctor. He suggested eating better & integrating exercise just to stay healthy & get my sugar levels under control. He can relate to me and that is impressive!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Trust him!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
I’d like to start by saying I am over the moon happy I found Dr. G. I initially went to him as a second opinion after working previously with a different RE. From the day I made my appointment up until now I’m extremely glad I chose to stay with him. He is extremely intelligent, very committed to making sure I understand my particular case & condition, gets back to me in a timely manner & always answers my questions of concern. That by far is the most important thing to me. Knowing that we’re on the same page and he is willing to do what it takes to help me have a baby.
Describe the protocols Marc Gualtieri used in your cycles at IVF Florida and their degree of success.
Well I have not had my actual IUI. I am in progress. So my husband & I were given a work up and consulted regarding results. We both did really well & the few areas of concern like my blood sugar which was also addressed by placing me on metformin. I’ve been on metformin for 4 months. Next phase of treatment includes ovulation induction medications including injectables & ultrasounds to monitor the effectiveness of the OI. Once final ultrasound and blood work is completed ovidrel will be prescribed & I’ll be scheduled for IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVF Florida. (Assigned nurse: LYNN H. )
Compassionate. Helpful. Outgoing & always willing to help with additional resources. Gives great hugs & words of encouragement!!
Describe your experience with IVF Florida.
Strengths would be the knowledge & education of assisted reproductive technology of all of the doctors and how there able to take an individualized approach still getting a positive result. Weaknesses would be sometimes it may take a minute to get called back when leaving messages with answering service over the weekends.

Dr. Gualtieri always made the time to talk to me, answer all my questions, and calm me. He learned about my personality and tried his best to guide me in the process... He became a friend in the process and I trust him implicitly. He understands me as a patient and my needs emotionally. To me, that is first and foremost. Going into our second cycle, we have adjusted the protocol...We waited to see about my trigger so we would know the likelihood of overstim. We ended up using hcg and all went ok. No overstim and recovery was a breeze.

How was your experience with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
Although we did not get the result we wanted, I do not hold that against him. There are certain things we cannot control and that was the biggest lesson I learned from dr g and my first cycle. He became a friend in the process and I trust him implicitly. He understands me as a patient and my needs emotionally. To me, that is first and foremost. Going into our second cycle, we have adjusted the protocol. IVF is an experiment. We never know what will or won't work.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
He loves a prepared patient. You're a team in this infertility war. There's not much advice I would offer.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida?
I believe strongly that the doctor patient relationship in this process is extremely important. Dr. Gualtieri always made the time to talk to me, answer all my questions, and calm me. He learned about my personality and tried his best to guide me in the process.
Describe the protocols Marc Gualtieri used in your cycles at IVF Florida and their degree of success.
I tested negative on blood and glucose for PCOS. For stim, we used menopur, gonal-f, and ganirelix. We waited to see about my trigger so we would know the likelihood of overstim. We ended up using hcg and all went ok. No overstim and recovery was a breeze. I did however, stim slightly fast and had lots of smaller follicles. Our next protocol will be more aggressive in hopes for more follicles and even growth across the board.
Describe your experience with your nurse at IVF Florida. (Assigned nurse: Erica)
They were just wonderful women that showed compassion and were with me on this tough journey. I'm sure there were a few times they wanted to hang up on me, but the patience and care they showed were invaluable.
Describe your experience with IVF Florida.
The only weakness I would share is when they called to tell me none of my embryos made it to freeze. The nurse should have had a kinder bedside manner.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Marc Gualtieri at IVF Florida.
It was billed through insurance last time so I cannot speak Fairly to costs. We are paying out of pocket and I feel it is a fair rate.
Describe Marc Gualtieri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at IVF Florida.
I agreed with the approach.

I think he [Dr. Gualtieri] could of done better explaining the process . I had a couple of appointments where I left and I realized later I had more questions than answers. He is very personable but needs to explain more and provide more information...He always knew the facts about the status of progression and what stage I was in. He knew me by sight and name....Staff [IVF Florida] is compassionate but not have highly organized.
