Mark Amols was absolutely amazing like I said he's very compassionate and understanding and listens there has been other doctors in the past that don't seem to care what you have to say and that's different with dr. Amols he'll actually sit there and listen to you.... We first tried Clomid and he explained what day of my cycle I needed to take it and when it was supposed to end and how long it was supposed to last and when I should have been ovulating I also came in and did ultrasounds to check and see if the eggs were maturing like they were supposed to.
They [New Direction] are very organized and understanding and sympathetic as soon as you walk through that door they're very welcoming it doesn't feel like you're going into a doctor's office it feels like you're walking into your mom's house or a family member's house it's very comfortable... I loved the whole staff no issues at all it felt like going to my second home... We had insurance so it paid diagnosis so we just had to pay a specialist fee co-pay

I felt like a human with Dr amols because he was respectful and listened. I did not feel rushed. I felt like we could sit there all day and listen to us. I felt like he was hurting with us. He even told us his own experiences with his wife and what they went through. He literally knew what we were going through, which made me feel more comfortable. He was very compassionate when things didn't work out like our insurance not paying he even gave us low-cost options which was pretty amazing.

He [Dr. Mark Amols] was comfortable transferring 1-2 embryos for us. We only ended up with one in the end. He said any more then 2 could become unsafe for the mom and babies...He was so kind, understanding and knowledgeable. We left feeling like we had hope and positivity after every appointment...came up with a plan and described every little detail. He answered all questions and was readily available with a box of tissues. He shared his own infertility stories with us and made us feel like we were not alone. He is hands down the best doctor and we felt like we had the best care with him.
There is not enough good things I could say about the clinic [New Direction Fertility Centers]. We can’t wait to go back to start our next IVF journey with them next year. The only weakness is wait times. Sometimes appointments take longer then others but you have to understand that every patient is important and they allow for questions and never make you feel rushed.

He is an incredible doctor and it’s very apparent that he was a nurse before he became an MD. He Is kind,compassionate, intelligent and I won’t see another RE. My personal issues include PCOS, male factor infertility and annovulation. Dr Amols was wonderful at explaining each of these issues and the options we had. So far we have done medicated cycles and an IUI. No success yet, but we will keep going with the help of Dr Amols.
The clinic has a long wait list for original consultation. Sometimes up to 6 months. But once you are in, the staff makes every attempt to get you in ASAP for all appointments- ultrasounds, HCG draws, lab appointments and IUI included. Ours fell on a Saturday and Dr Amols came in specifically for it.... IUI cost 750 and medications were an additional 400. Blood draws are 25. Ultra sounds are 200 if not doing an IUI or IVF protocol. Initial consult was 200

Dr. Amols is very thorough . He sits down with us and literally draws out what is happening and what our plan of action is. He shows us charts and statistics and explains everything to us. He makes sure our questions are answered. He is very professional and has excellent bedside manner. We are very impressed with him! ... He is a very busy and popular doctor and there is usually a very long waiting list to see him.
Just one of my most recent times, I was left sitting in the ultrasound room over an hour. They [New Direction Fertility Center] forgot about me they said and they had his NP exam me instead of doctor. ... They the NP who saw me ordered the wrong medication. I was super bummed because I had specifically scheduled with him, not the NP, when I made the appointment.

Dr Amols has incredible bedside manner and makes you feel important no matter the reason for your visit. ... I’ve always felt like Dr Amols genuinely cared for my husband and I. And has supported the decisions we’ve made regarding treatments. We’ve had multiple losses and every time his compassion and concern have always shown through. ... Dr Amols has always been very open about discussing our odds. He has been brutally honest even when I haven’t wanted him to be, but he wants to make sure that the path we set is the best one of us.
I think the clinic is great the way it is. ... Everything is done through a portal and it makes communicating with the Doctors office so much easier ... New Direction accepts most insurance plans and they will attempt to run every visit through insurance before billing you. ...

We’ve been going to this clinic for some time and I feel like I’ve built a good relationship with a few of them.

We live in CA and have had consultations with 2 other doctors who made us feel like they didn’t care about our specific needs. Dr Amols’ office is so attentive and caring. They were thorough and took the time to make a plan of action that is specific to our needs... Dr Amols is warm, caring, and thorough. He truly takes the time to make me feel comfortable and supported in this fertility journey. He is smart and always looking for what is best not what is most expensive
I have only hand great experiences with every step of the process so far. His team is spectacular and significantly better than any other office we have worked with. The only weakness is how in demand they [New Direction] are (which to me was also a strength) I had to wait 7 months to see this dr because he has so many patients that come to him from all around the country due to his amazing care and fair prices.... These ladies are amazing. Always available and updated on my case by the dr regularly

I always left his office feeling knowledgeable about what I was going to be doing. He takes the time to talk about what he’s doing every step of the way. He always made me feel so comfortable.... He is a fantastic doctor and doesn’t give false hope. He will talk you through every step of what’s going on and has so much empathy for his patients.
I don’t have any complaints about the clinic [New Direction Fertility Centers]. They are all really awesome there. I think the only thing that I would say is sometimes there wouldn’t be anyone at the front desk and I would have to wait for someone so that I could pay my co pay or schedule my next appointment. The clinic is very clean and the whole staff is so nice!

Very caring and works a lot. He [Dr. Mark Amols] always knows who you are and you feel like your his friend not just a patient. My only complaint is that I wish I had more time to talk to him each time since he always made me feel positive and confident... preantagonist with a coflare antagonist cycle with estrogen only instead of a birth control. It made sense why he did it when he told me, but honestly that's about as far as I understood it.
[New Direction's] Strengths - great doctor, nice staff, affordable (we couldn't afford IVF without them) Weaknesses - long wait to get in but then it goes fast, front desk isn't their strong point Useful Information - I am sure a lot of people see them because of the reviews and affordability but what surprised me more is their success rate. Everyone I knew who has seen them is pregnant, that was impressive. I'll be honest I was worried about you know "you get what you pay for".

Strengths - great doctor, nice staff, affordable (we couldn't afford IVF without them) Weaknesses - long wait to get in but then it goes fast, front desk isn't their strong point Useful Information - I am sure a lot of people see them because of the reviews and affordability but what surprised me more is their success rate. Everyone I knew who has seen them is pregnant, that was impressive. I'll be honest I was worried about you know "you get what you pay for".
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mark Amols at New Direction Fertility Centers.
Compared to the other clinics we went to it was about 1/2 to a 1/3 the cost. We felt like the care was better then the more expensive clinics.

He [Dr. Mark Amols] is a caring and knowlegible dr. He made us understand the process with him and made us feel like we are capable of doing another round. We decided to see him because of the price and the feedback we got from others. He made the appointment more personal and friendly. Was able to talk to him like a friend. Which helped my husband feel more comfortable.
[New Direction Fertility Centers is a] Very clean office. Nice front desk. I like that every time I have called I have talked to someone. I appreciate it when they transfer a call someone picks up the phone. if someone doesn't have the answer they will find out and get back to you soon. the financial team is helpful as well. I like that they have Kiara so we can text ?s back and forth.

Dr. Amols was nice but he didn’t treat us like an important patient. After the 3 IUIs we decided to change clinics and see someone knew. Dr. Amols barely did any blood work on my and my new clinic did so much testing and found out i was a carrier for CF. Dr. Amols never told me that.... Two cycles with clomid and a trigger shot and the last iui was with Femara and trigger shot.
Clinic [New Direction] was clean and nicely decorated. The front office staff never said hi or bye or made us feel Welcomed. The first treatment they sent my prescription to the wrong pharmacy and i told them 2-3 which location it needed to be.... the staff was never nice and never remembered or checked the charts that we have to use donor sperm and it was a constant reminder because they always made comments that we would use his sperm.

If you are doing IUIs don’t waste your time. They only care about IVF patients and they don’t do detailed testing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mark Amols at New Direction Fertility Centers?
We did IUIs so i didn’t feel as important as the IVF patients. Probably because i didn’t pay as much. He never did blood work on me or checked to see if I was even ovulating. I felt like we wasted $6k on 3 IUIs with him and the staff was never nice and never remembered or checked the charts that we have to use donor sperm and it was a constant reminder because they always made comments that we would use his sperm.

He [Dr. Amols] was the best doctor I have ever seen for anything. Understanding, compassionate, helpful, kind and very accommodating. Super trustworthy. He never hesitated to help in any way he could and he was always there for any questions we had. He explained everything to us over and over when I was struggling and hormonal. He is truly passionate about what he does and it shows...He took time to answer and explain everything, he called after hours to check on us and text us when we had questions or concerns or when things didn't go well, like when we miscarried.
Strengths [at New Direction Fertility Centers] are the dr [Amols], the majority of the nurses. Weaknesses- the lack of times you get to see your ivf coordinator depending on which one you see. And sometimes a few nurses get a bit disorganized...Had a nurse fail to call in some prescriptions and had 2 different nurses tell me two different start dates and dosages for a round of ivf. Once mentioning it to doctor amols, it was immediately taken care of.

Trust his judgement but also know what is happening at each appointment. Ask questions because he will answer them and it's better to put your mind at rest than to stress.

Dr. Amols was great. He was compassionate and understanding and I think it helped since he and his wife went through treatments too. He did run a busy office, but for the most part I didn’t feel rushed. I looked forward to speaking to him he had great bedside manner....I loved that HE did the ultrasounds and would explain things...
[New Direction] I love the new text system with a nurse. Weaknesses would be explaining MY course of IVF with another consult. We were told about IUI and IVF, opted for IUI, was unsuccessful so we waited, saved money and 6 months later did IVF. But to be honest he never really had a sit down and we didn’t talk about what it would entail fully....they weren’t very talkative and didn’t seem interested in getting to know me.

I also just wanted a support system.. not with strangers online but to connect with women in my community.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mark Amols at New Direction Fertility Centers.
My insurance paid 50% so the rates were a bit higher than if I would have paid totally out of pocket. It was a total of about $6,500 for the IVF cycle with medications (that the insurance did not cover).

Super difficult to get into see Dr. Amols. Even in an emergent condition, he told me to go to the ER for an U/S instead of into his office during a weekday while they were open. Also staff is so busy they never answer the phone. Impossible to reach a nurse or billing coordinator. Frustrating.... Smart Dr. and very cheerful, but the practice is too busy for him to give each client the time they need. He sets no additional time for urgent visits. I liked talking to him because he seems to be very honest, and I'm sure he is very good at what he does.
They [New Direction Fertility] neglected to submit my visit to my health insurance within the allotted 90 days. Afterwards it was too late to do so. Then they proceed to bill me for the visit. I had to file an appeal. It took me a year to get it settled.... The prices are very good, but keep in mind that the meidcatin may cost you over $300/day, as they did for me, and the clinic will not give you any samples so you're on your own to purchase all meds. Also. They did not tell me what days I would need to take the menopure right before the retrieval,

When I first started going, I would call with questions and someone would be there to answer or would call me back. The last couple months my calls are returned by a message on a messaging system leaving no room for me to ask additional questions if I thought of others. Some prefer messaging over talking but I prefer to talk to someone.

[Dr. Mark Amols] is very compassionate. You can tell he cares about his patients and their success. He doesn’t treat you like you are just a number. He also explains everything thoroughly so you aren’t left wondering what is going on...My eggs matured slower than normal so I stayed on the stim meds longer than normal. Retrieval day the dr got 31 eggs! 26 were mature. I ended up with 6 embryos! 5 were normal and 1 was abnormal...
They [New Direction Fertility Centers] use a system called Klara. It’s awesome! You can get questions answered and get appointments scheduled all through that system! No phone calls and waiting on hold or having to leave voicemails. It’s very convenient!...Every single nurse I delt with was super compassionate and helpful. They always knew what my next steps were and would direct me on what to do next. A couple of them even went above and beyond on a little problem that arose with the PGD testing.

Dr Amols is very empathetic and showed genuine concern and willingness to help when we ended up having a 2nd trimester loss after a successful IUI. Most of the testing is done by him which is nice since he is able to talk you through it and give instant feedback.... Dr Amols takes his time and answers all of your questions. He can also personally relate as he has been through IVF himself.
The clinic [New Direction Fertility Centers- Gilbert] is clean, new and they just expanded. The wait at the office is very little, you are usually called right in. Visits are often quick. Their messaging app is great for any questions or help you need.... Approx $2k with insurance for IUI including meds (high deductible)... IUI with femera, Gonal F, trigger shot and progesterone after IUI. We had a successful pregnancy. At 22 weeks, due to suspected incompetent cervix, we had to deliver our angel.

Dr. Amols and his staff were friendly, made eye contact, and called me by name. The doctor was very busy, but he didn't rush when I had questions. ... Doctor Amolshas a kind heart and attention to detail that you would hope to find in a doctor.

One even gave me crunchy Cheetos afterwards when I said that was the only food I was craving! So sweet.

Dr Amols is amazing. He is truly dedicated to his patients and transparent, while being compassionate. He never acted like he was better than we were. Just a normal guy, who asks how you are, what you're doing over the weekend, etc. He went through IVF twice with his wife, so he gets it.... Retrieval 1 was Lupron Flare, 4 retreived 3 fertilized, 2 to blast 0 PGS normal. Retreival 2 was Lupron Co Flare, 6 retreived 5 fertilized, 2 to blast, 1 PGS normal (a boy!) Retreival 3 was Lupron Co Flare with HGH, 20 retreived 14 fertilized, 6 to blast,2 PGS normal
[New Direction Fertility Centers has] Great pricing, amazing doctor, and awesome messaging app so you dont have to call them all the time. They do turn over staff frequently, mostly the Medical Assistants, but everyone is friendly and helpful.... Retrieval 1 was Lupron Flare, 4 retreived 3 fertilized, 2 to blast 0 PGS normal.

He [Dr. Mark Amols] was completely involved and candid but gentle about every decision. Sometimes communication wasn’t clear and it was likely because they do this daily and it was my first time. The nurses were supportive and made the experience as understandable as possible. The staff was helpful with scheduling.... He was clear with me and we made a decision based on his prediction that transferring just one would be best at the time. It worked!
Overall they [New Direction Fertility Centers] are staffed appropriately to be seen at the time you arrive. Communication was sometimes confusing but I kept asking questions to understand when and how I needed to go about next steps.... Speak with others to make sure you understand the timing and your responsibilities of which meds to take when and where to get meds that aren’t expensive. Stay on top of communications and don’t be afraid to ask questions. They are really helpful and always willing to answer.

Dr. Amols is personable and compassionate. I felt like he truly cared about the success of our treatments. He takes time to answer questions.... Dr. Amols is a talented physician. He recognized an anomaly I had right away when other physicians had not. He has good bed side manner and spends time explaining information in details and answering questions.... The office is very busy and it sometimes felt like the staff forgot to provide important information. I often had to ask or remind them.
The office [New Direction Fertility] is very busy and it sometimes felt like the staff forgot to provide important information. I often had to ask or remind them.... The pricing is reasonable. Most of the fees are posted on the website so you can more easily estimate cost of treatments. This is helpful but remember that some things (diagnostic services and medication) are not included in package prices.... All nurses that I was in contact with were very nice and compassionate. Some were not as organized as others. I never felt like I knew what was coming next. I had to do a lot of my own research to understand the processes. I had one incident with miscommunication between the nurses that postponed one of my IUIs causing me to have to reschedule a flight and pay for additional medications.

[Dr. Mark Amols] was always in a good mood, and happy to see you. He truly loves his job, and it shows. His family also went through the IVF process. So he knows how stressful it can be. They ended up with two boys, and two girls. He is also always happy to answer any of your questions...It’s a long process, and it sometimes can take a few months to figure out what the best plan of action is.
The [nurses at New Direction Fertility Centers] respond back to you very quickly. Their Klara application makes it really easy to send and recieve messages. Don’t bother calling though, you never really end up getting ahold of anyone...IVF is 4,600 if you add PGS testing it’s 6,000 plus 300 anesthetist fed and lab fee of 1000.00 There is also a separate 500 ICIS fee...It takes a really long time to become a new patient. Their waiting list can be up to 6 months long. People travel from all over the USA to see Doctor A. You WILL end up frustrated at some point! If you are from out of state, and can afford to come to them for ultrasounds, I would. I feel like there is more of a connection that way, and better care.

The respond back to you very quickly. Their Klara application makes it really easy to send and recieve messages. Don’t bother calling though, you never really end up getting ahold of anyone. The nurse that takes blood often misses your vein, and you have to be poked a few times. I think they have students doing the blood draws.
