Dr. Severino left our treatment strategy up to my husband and I, and gave cautious recommendations like starting treatment with just Clomid. After 5 Clomid cycles with negative pregnancy results, we decided to move forward with IUI treatment, which the Dr. didn't endorse nor counter. After 2 negative IUI cycles, we asked him if we should resign ourselves to IVF and he confirmed. It was the first recommendation we ever received.

How was your experience with Mark Severino at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
Dr. Severino hasn't given me any reason to mistrust his treatment plans, but his team has made me want to switch clinics several times. The patient has to drag information/next steps out of the clinical team each visit and the Front Office is frustratingly incompetent.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mark Severino at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
The patient must be responsible for requesting information and expectations since it won't be given unsolicited by the doctor/staff.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mark Severino at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
Dr. Severino treats you like a human, but you only interact with the doctor 15% of the time. The clinic staff/nurses at Sher definitely make you feel like a number.

Required several phone calls and emails for clear instructions. Delayed response time.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
The clinic and staff have not been impressive in any way. The Front Office staff are mostly useless and always have to transfer you or "get back to you" and the nurse teams seem unorganized and uncaring. They once tried to take bloodwork from me before I told them it was not required for IUI treatment.

IUI treatment cost about $5,000, including meds.
Describe Mark Severino's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
He's "not in the business of creating Octomoms."

The last treatment I did with Dr Severino was IUI, and just with clomid because my insurance at the time would not cover anything else. So we were not very optimistic that it would work, and it did not. We have done 2 donor egg cycles elsewhere, and now we are going to be doing it again(providing we have the funds to), with a known donor this time...I've seen Dr Severino several times, and he also so attentive to our needs. I know once we have the funds to move forward with another cycle, we will get pregnant. He has worked with us through every step, he also takes the time to fill out extra paper work each time we apply for a fertility grant. I went back to him in 2013, because he also was a partner to Dr McConnell back in 2001, when they treated me with clomid to get pregnant with my daughter. I trust him to get us pregnant again.
