Dr Abdullah is a very busy man and he never makes you feel rushed or like your questions don’t matter...He is always on time or right around the time of my apt. Never wait to long for him. He explains what each med will do. He is very thoughtful and he doesn’t explain stuff in a way that you don’t understand. He writes you a paper that explains what meds to take which day and always makes sure I feel comfortable doing my injection myself.
The nurses [at American Reproductive Centers] need to get their stuff together. They never call with a pregnant result for a day even if you call ten time. You can never get through to anyone. They never have the ultrasound machine ready to go so dr Abdullah then has to sit for them to be ready. They all seem scatter brained. It has gotten a little better but still is the worst nursing staff I have had. This should be a non stressful time and they make my anxiety go through the roof.

You can never get through to the front desk. Ever. They are rude and make you feel bad about scheduling another apt because they are busy. The strength they have would be they are easy location and have the ultrasound right there in office now

Unsuccessful
Dr Mazin was empathetic, but seemed distracted and overworked while we were there...We transferred 2 embryos both times we did a transfer...most times he was late for the appointments and didn’t adjust actions appropriately. I was very young when I started going to him and I feel like they didn’t take me seriously. They said I would be fine. It has been 8 years and no successful pregnancy...
The [American Reproductive Centers] clinic is clean and up to date. The doctors are empathetic. The organization and care for individual patients is lacking. Most times I would have to wait for 30min to an hour before being seen and it was difficult because I was working full time and trying to make appointments for lunch breaks. I felt like a number. It would have been great if there were more check-ins and updates on process. I wish there was more information up front on the risks and not just the hopes of having a baby in the end. Some of the nurses where very young, I felt like I was a test project.

Describe the protocols Mazin Abdullah used in your cycles at American Reproductive Centers and their degree of success.
Dr. Mazin took me through my first round of IVF and egg retrieval. I had too many eggs that were produced and got into a very dangerous place. We had to freeze the embryos instead of doing a fresh transfer to allow time for my body to heal. We transfer 2 of the embryos the next month. Both embryos attached and became a positive pregnancy. At about 8 weeks, we did a check up and there was no heartbeat.

He [Dr Mazin Abdullah] recommended we go straight to ivf with two rounds of egg retrieval before implantation....He was effective at what he does, but I just felt like I wasn't a priority. He was always late, or missed appointments all together, so I saw his partner, who I ended up liking much better. He was just more clinical than I would have preferred. We also had a mistake in our genetic testing and no explanation or communication occurred when it was brought to his attention. I would have chosen another clinic for a bit more personal attention
It was super helpful that everything is in one location [at American Reproductive Centers], offices, retrieval room, etc. the offices are clean and pretty...The nurses were all very efficient and kind. They provided all the information needed and answers quickly...Genetic testing was wrong, and they never acknowledged they made a mistake 2. Billing was a major issue and they constantly billed our insurance twice. 3. They had a very minor procedure done on me that was 2 hours in and out the door. The clinic billed my insurance $75,000 for it. It was insane and over inflated and they didn't seem to care that blatant insurance fraud was occurring 4. It's been incredibly difficult to get bills from the, for egg storage, making me nervous that they have been destroyed without my consent

He [Dr. Abdullah] was very upfront and took almost two hours to initially go over all information. He answered any and all questions I had...He was very understanding with me and asked us questions too. I felt he really got to know us and our needs and what we were capable of. He instantly made me feel comfortable when we met and he talked with us for over 2 hours at the initial visit for free. I totally trust him and appreciate that he did not hold back even if the news was not something positive.
