[Dr. Esposito] manages our IVF cycle...prescribes and adjust the fertility drugs...does/has not perform(ed) any of the procedures...we currently have one frozen embryo. My wife's cancer diagnosis requires constant communication with her oncologist...responsive to planning a course of action that balances achieving our pregnancy goals with urgency of seeking a positive outcome and prognosis from the cancer treatment.
Communication is done through a patient portal...there is a lot of room for missed communications and miscommunication...We do not feel Shady Grove did an adequate job of preparing us for what was to come...had the wrong phone number in my records...After claiming to correct the error, it continued...took nearly 6 months to notify us about masses in my wife's uterus...later determine to be cancerous.
How was your experience with Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Dr. Espisito is the doctor who manages our IVF cycle. She prescribes and adjust the fertility drugs during a cycle. She does/has not perform(ed) any of the procedures (egg retrieval, diagnostics or implantation). Under Dr. Espisito's guidance, we currently have one frozen embryo. My wife's cancer diagnosis requires constant communication with her oncologist as the IVF treatments progress. She has been responsive to planning a course of action that balances achieving our pregnancy goals with urgency of seeking a positive outcome and prognosis from the cancer treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
After the initial consultation with Dr. Esposito, be prepared to go through the communication "firewall" put in place by Shady Grove. Communication is done through a patient portal. Each patient has an assigned nurse, but there is a lot of room for missed communications and miscommunication. This can be frustrating. The corporate communication structure is beyond the doctor's control, but one should be aware of it.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Dr. Espisito is very pleasant, but occasionally seems rushed.
Describe the protocols Melissa Esposito used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia and their degree of success.
The treatment protocols have been fairly standard in terms of medication and dosing. The lone adjustment was a prescription to maintain hormone levels that agree with the cancer treatment. Adjustments to the dosing were made after each diagnostic test (blood work and ultrasound).
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia. (Assigned nurse: Tracy then Rachel)
Simply, they are great.
Describe your experience with Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
The paperwork to start an IVF cycle can be overwhelming. Also, the emotional roller-coaster that is IVF is a challenge. We do not feel Shady Grove did an adequate job of preparing us for what was to come. However, once enrolled in a program, the clinic visits for diagnostic testing and egg retrieval have always been a positive experience.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
All out of pocket. IVF is prohibitively expensive.
What specific things went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
They had the wrong phone number in my records. Went several months without hearing back from them. After claiming to correct the error, it continued. It took nearly 6 months to notify us about masses in my wife's uterus. These weer later determine to be cancerous.

How was your experience with Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Esposito. She validated my feelings of despair, allowed me to cry it out then explained how she could help. She gave me the science behind everything which is what I needed and together we came up with a plan that everyone was comfortable with. Even though I didn't see her for most of my monitoring sessions, I know she was following my progress and even personally called to let me know my IVF cycle was canceled due to COVID 19. I know that couldn't have been easy for her. I left my consult with hope. During timed intercourse she adjusted my medication as needed and explained everything. I felt well taken care of!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Be open and honest with her about your goals and what you are comfortable doing. She was customize your treatment for you but will take your feelings and desires into consideration.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
When my husband and I had our consult, we had just suffered our third miscarriage with no previous live births. Achieving our dream of building a family together seemed so hopeless. We had been trying for over 2 years. Dr. Esposito let me cry and explained how she could help us. She was so positive she could help us achieve our goal and explained the whole process to us including our options. I left that appointment with more hope than I expected and I felt like she was on our team, fighting beside us.
Describe the protocols Melissa Esposito used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia and their degree of success.
I did 3 cycles of timed intercourse using Letrozole. The first cycle I did 5mg for 5 days. My follicles didn't respond so I was given Clomid for 5 days. I then had an over response. For the next 2 cycles I alternated 5mg and 7.5mg for a total of 5 days. That seemed to be the right dosage for me because by cycle day 10 or 11 I was ready for my trigger shot. My body responded well to everything, the follicles grew as they were supposed to but none of the cycles ended with a pregnancy. After speaking with Dr. Esposito we decided to go straight to IVF. We were getting ready to start our first IVF cycle when it got canceled due to COVID 19.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia. (Assigned nurse: Rachel)
I have/had a lot of questions and my nurse was always very timely in her responses.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.
I had a $40 copay for each time I met with Dr. Esposito and for each ultrasound performed during monitoring. Medication for each timed intercourse cycle was between $89-$90. IVF was about $23,000.
Describe Melissa Esposito's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia.

She [Dr. Esposito] is warm and kind. She makes direct eye contact and doesn't interrupt when you're talking. She is very willing to give more or less detail based on your feedback.

Dr. Esposito cared deeply about our desire to be parents. She was patient through the process of explaining everything to us even if she had to repeat herself. She was very empathetic and was supportive of the way we wanted to go about treatment.... She made sure to answer our questions fully and she covered all risks involved. We appreciated how she spoke to us in a down-to-earth manner and she treated us with importance and sensitivity. She was reassuring and when our first cycle failed she felt deeply unsatisfied and outlined exactly how the protocol would change and how she was going to make this happen for us.
They [Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia] are organized, communicative, flexible and make sure your experience is to your satisfaction. I expressed concerns about the financial counselor we were assigned and we received a phone call the very next day from our new financial counselor.... We exhausted insurance benefits for 2nd cycle so we opted to go with Shared Risk so we had a fair shot at making and bringing our baby home. Shared Risk is out of pocket and runs $19,500 plus $3,500 for genetic testing.

I loved her [Dr. Melissa Esposito]. I loved that she was blunt about things and her opinions... always having research to back it up too!...I did 6 IUIs, and she was up front that she only wanted to do 3 max, less if we were comfortable. She doesn't like IUIs as much due to such low success rates. I totally agree with her!! Unfortunately my insurance forced us to do 6 before moving onto IVF. We did 3 cycles on clomid, 3 cycles on injectable meds then moved onto Antagonist Protocol for IVF with ICSI.
IVF,ICSI cost about $10000 and $4000 in meds...I loved everything about this clinic [Shady Grove at Camp Hill]. I do want to warn you that they have many branches and if you're branch doesn't have a Dr on the day your cycle falls for transfer or IUI, you may have to go elsewhere. I didn't mind this as it gave me tons if options for appt times. And all the doctors I've encountered have been great through Shady Grove

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Melissa Esposito at Shady Grove Fertility of Philadelphia?
Dr Esposito always took time to talk to me after our appointments, she wouldn't just rush out. She always remembered everything about us and would even stop and talk to us in the hallway. When I was in the room still for different procedures, she would run out to waiting room and let my husband know I was good. She was optimistic but honest about percentages and didn't sugar coat things. Also took time to explain anything we needed in great detail.
