How was your experience with Merle Berger at Boston IVF?
Dr. Merle has an amazing way of explaining everything, he’s very patience and very positive . Step by step he explained the pros and cons . We have two beautiful girls , and I talk to them and to everyone else about Dr. Berger , M . I have a few friends that now see Dostors at BIVF but have different doctors I think . But I feel like I became a spoke person for couples with unexplained infertility. I learned from Dr. Berger , that there is a way to have a baby , we just needs to find answers . He’s profesionalism is outstanding . If i was late , he never rushed me out . Always answers my questions no matter how silly they were . I’m very thankful to have been his patient twice and I’m looking forward to visit him for our third baby if everything goes well , we have a frozen embryo .
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Merle Berger at Boston IVF?
Listen carefully , ask all the questions , don’t fear to hear anything, sometimes he might give you an answer you don’t want to hear but it is what it is . Keep your faith !
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Merle Berger at Boston IVF?
First thing he gave me was hope ! I walked in there scared of why I couldn’t have children and he diagnosed me wit PCOS and for years no doctor had even given me any results for infertility. This changed my life because I then understood why everything was different with me , like having no periods gaining and loosing weight . No babies , etc . He gave us all the in and outs about BOSTON IVF and I felt as one of his daughters .
Describe the protocols Merle Berger used in your cycles at Boston IVF and their degree of success.
He wanted to start me on trigger shots , but for insurance purposes I had to start with pills (chlomid) that didn’t work as expected. But the shots were magic. He started me on a low dose and went up slowly , wanted to prevent twin pregnancy . He monitored everything carefully and timely . I was always given an update as soon as they had the results , no matter what day of the week it was . That was for baby #1 , for our second child I started with the trigger shots , we were going for IVF due to my age , again to avoid twin pregnancy . I had an egg retrieval , but before I got to implant the embryo we got pregnant with baby #2
Describe your experience with your nurse at Boston IVF.
All I can say is that everyone there show they care ! They are the most sweet and understanding care takers I have encounter . Even the billing department is very understamble. Everyone there is ready to assist you . The day surgery team is amazing too , they explain everything step by step and make you feel confident .
Describe your experience with Boston IVF.
The two places I visited were Brookline and Waltham , and I find everything perfect . Brookline is a little smaller but very cozy and welcoming . The only thing that there’s really never any parking . They are finishing up a new parking lot. Waltham is complementary parking and always available.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Merle Berger at Boston IVF.
My insurance cover most of it , I paid $5000 deductible out of pocket . And 3,500 for the eggs. Plus copays
Describe Merle Berger's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Boston IVF.
I agreed with everything he thought it was best for us , I trusted him as my doctor and never doubt him . I’m truly happy that he wanted me to have a single baby each time .
