She [Dr. Henne] called me on the weekend when she was off to walk me through my lining check. I really felt like she was on our team wanting a pregnancy...She is up to date on current research. I felt like she was on our team and really tried all avenues. I didn’t feel like a number. There was a personalized approach to my treatment and protocol. Great bed side manner... Henne recommended a scratch before the next transfer and also put me on metanx for my MTHFR gene mutation.
Leslie [nurse at USF IVF] became my friend through this journey. When she called to tell me the first FET failed she called me the next day and a week later to check on me. I felt like she was fully vested in our journey...I feel like they take an outside of the box approach with protocols and treatments. They are pretty conservative. Getting in to start the process is painfully long. You have to stay on top of them (Joy) so things don’t fall thru the cracks and cause delays. Since it’s an educational practice associated with a university the doctors are also teachers. Their costs are a little cheaper than other local clinics and you get access to meds from the hospital which beats any pharmacy.

I had a problem with thin lining. We cancelled two FETs, did two ERAs and eventually did on unsuccessful FET with another dr in the practice. They never checked my lining. Henne recommended a scratch before the next transfer and also put me on metanx for my MTHFR gene mutation.

Leslie became my friend through this journey. When she called to tell me the first FET failed she called me the next day and a week later to check on me. I felt like she was fully vested in our journey. Amanda is also amazing. Joy, on the other hand, was an awful communicator and had no compassion. Do not recommend working with Joy

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Henne is extremely thorough and doesn’t miss a beat. She’s kind and has a wonderful bedside manner, but doesn’t sugar coat things. She never rushes through an appointment and makes sure all questions are answered before you leave.... Dr. Henne has completely changed my plan and put me on a batching cycle. Which means I’ll do 3 retrievals, freeze all embryos, send for testing, then transfer.
[Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine is] a huge office with many doctors, but it’s very individualized care. They have multiple locations, but I recommend the downtown location. I never waited long for any appointment. And they don’t weigh you at every appointment!... I have diminished ovarian reserve. My previous doctor never changed the protocol and immediately started talking about donor eggs. Dr. Henne has completely changed my plan and put me on a batching cycle. Which means I’ll do 3 retrievals, freeze all embryos, send for testing, then transfer.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
She [Dr. Melinda Henne] was very transparent with me. She listened to my concerns and was willing to start treatments without repeating all of the uncomfortable and unnecessary testing that i have already had done at my previous clinic.... She took time to discuss with me the reality of my situation and how hard it would be to get pregnant. She didn’t say it was impossible but provided details explaining why it would be difficult.
It was very quick checking in [at USF IVF and Reproductive Endo- Tampa]. I had my paperwork already competed which helped make things go quicker. Have your ID out and that will also make it go quicker. Easy to locate.... The nurse called in the wrong medication which almost made me pass out bc my sugar dropped so low.... I remember IUI was roughly around $700
