Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Michael Scheiber] Answers questions when asked but doesn’t provide additional information. Not always the doctor seen at the clinic. Compassionate with difficult situations/news. Sometimes don’t feel like I’m getting individualized care at the clinic...Too many [protocols] to name...Wish would be more liberal with the amount of embryos allowed to transfer...Doesn’t always call when starting the next cycle or always follow up after a failed cycle
Overall, they [nurses at Institute for Reproductive Health] call back in a timely manner and seek answers to my questions. Wish there was a way to get a hold of someone directly instead of always leaving a message...Nothing major, just lot paperwork that my husband had already signed so he had to do it again...More privacy with billing area. Billing doesn’t always return phone calls...Like that there are multiple locations and can usually get an appointment when I need one. Overall, the entire team is compassionate and friendly.

He [Dr. Scheiber] said 2 if we tested them and 3-4 if untested [eset approach]... listened to our questions and concerns and ordered tests we wanted done that other RE in 2010-11 at another clinic never did. And has been available for consult follow up and phone consult for results and email for questions... Our experience so far has been great with him. We are about to start IVF and I hope he can be there for all the appointments. But, I know it might be hard at times to see him for everything during the treatments.
Offices [at Institute for Reproductive Health] are clean and have a waiting area to sit until you are called back for appointment. And during education day nurse got us some soda to drink. Before our blood draw... i think it is around 8200 for IVF and then extra for ICSI and asissted hatching and to freeze embryos and for meds...He [Dr. Scheiber] said 2 if we tested them and 3-4 if untested [eset approach]... listened to our questions and concerns and ordered tests we wanted done that other RE in 2010-11 at another clinic never did.

Dr. Scheiber has a very comfortable patient care manner. Always upbeat and positive about our outcomes...Overall we were very happy with Dr. Scheiber and his protocol for our cycle with him. The primary drawback was that he was frequently out of town and we were covered by one of his associates for several of our major milestones including the embryo transfer...Be prepared to deal with each of the doctors in the practice and not be seen exclusively by Dr. Scheiber.
[The Institute for Reproductive Health was] Very clean, staff is highly professional and courteous. They are generally very responsive via phone. The nurses who care for you during the actual retrieval and transfer are fantastic. Very kind and compassionate...[The nurses were] Overall very nice and professional. I do recall them struggling on some of the blood draws for my wife...wanted a second opinion from a clinic in Chicago and had to contact IRH multiple times to get our records faxed over, delaying review and input from the other clinic.

I have had surgery, IUI, and IVF with Dr. Scheiber and trust his opinion...I have had two miscarriages while undergoing treatment and I felt like the office staff and Dr.Scheiber carried about me and understood this was a lose for me. They have been supportive of my struggles. I feel the staff in the Florence office know me and my history.
The Wait times are more minimal [at Institute for Reproductive Health]. I have had a few billing issues but the clinic fixed these when brought to their attention.
