How was your experience with Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility Center?
Dr. Denker was very compassionate and never acted as if my questions were stupid. He had pictures and diagrams and made me feel very comfortable. He had me get genetic testing and egg quality testing which made a lot of sense to me and I didn't understand why my first doctor didn't call for those things. Dr. Denker performed surgery on my to prepare my body for IVF (which I haven't started yet) and I had a hard recovery-I don't believe that was any fault of his though.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility Center?
I would say trust your instincts. I know some people who didn't like Dr. Denker at all but I felt comfortable with him. Ask all the questions you want and don't feel silly! Even if you ask about a fallopian tube transplant lol he won't tell you anything is stupid or crazy-he'll answer you and give you great advice.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility Center?
Dr. Denker called me personally on the phone because my gynecologist reached out to him. He was so compassionate and told me he wanted me to come in just to get all my questions answered even if I didn't want to move forward with anything. The nurses were so sweet to me and felt like I could be friends with them.

I did not do treatment or cycles with Dr. Denker. He performed laproscopic surgery for me to remove my fallopian tubes, cysts, polyps, and endometriosis.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I loved the nursing staff. I felt like they treated me like a friend and I could tell them anything. They were great with e-mails and phone calls to tell me things I needed to do.
Describe your experience with Palm Beach Fertility Center.
I didn't love the building the clinic was in-it had weird carpet and wall colors. I think they were renovating when I stopped going to the clinic. There were awards on the walls and nice baby pictures and framed articles about Dr. Denker.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mark Denker at Palm Beach Fertility Center.
They provided a whole packet about payment plans and insurance options. I didn't love the lady who was supposed to help with information, I just used the packet mostly. It was pretty standard of being around $20,000 total but I appreciated all the information about the breakdown of medication and procedures and everything.
Describe Mark Denker's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Palm Beach Fertility Center.
I'm not sure what his approach was. We didn't get that far.
