I have been a gestational carrier in the past and used Dr. Abdallah for my transfer then, and when my husband and I went to see him for IVF for ourselves Dr. Abdallah took the time to explain every detail to my husband. He answered all of our questions honestly and with respect. He even emailed me to see what my husband thought and if we had any questions that had popped up after we left his offices.
They [Houston Fertility Institute] are very easy to work with and accommodating. Appointments are easy to get with any doctor and location. The staff is very friendly as well.... They [the nursing staff] were always just a phone call or email away and replied quickly when I had questions. Ordered meds and had refills available so that I would not run out.... IVF is about $12,500 and medicines can range from $2,500 - $7,000

Dr. Abdallah was very thorough in explaining the ins and outs of IVF to both my husband and myself. He truly cares about his patients and their success in getting and maintaining a pregnancy.

Describe the protocols Mazen Abdallah used in your cycles at Houston Fertility Institute and their degree of success.

Dr. Abdallah ran tests and SA and informed us right away of our results and what our chances would be with each cycle whether it was natural and medicated or IUI. He is very friendly and knowledgeable.... We were given all options when we first started treatments. We began with medicated natural for two cycles then on to IUI. After no success and more blood work we were told that our only option was IVF due to low AMH.
I really didn't find any weaknesses [at Houston Fertility Institute- Memorial Hermann] per say. Everyone was always very helpful. Only negative was that we didn't conceive during our cycles which doesn't reflect on the clinic staff. Anytime I needed help or had a question about my menstrual cycle or symptoms leading to miscarriage they were always willing to answer.... All of the nurses that I worked with or spoke with on the phone were knowledgeable and friendly. If they have the answer right then they would call me back within the same day.

So most of the cost of the IUI is covered by my insurance I do pay $300 out of pocket and then I am I do you have like co-pays for my meds or the other dr so most of the cost of the IUI is covered by my insurance I do pay $300 out-of-pocket and then I do have like co-pays for my meds that are covered and there some medicine that isn’t covered and that’s unfortunately the reason why we haven’t done IVF or havent done shots and we’ve only done femera Because unfortunately financially we can’t pay $1000-$2000 for shots even though my doctor is very upfront and said they would work better
