How was your experience with Michael Vermesh at The Center for Fertility & Gynecology?
He's a good doctor. I believe that he would do more for his patients but the main focus for the clinic seems to be revenue and something just was a little suspicious, I just can't put my finger on it, overall I believe he have the skills but something is holding him back.

Don't be overlooked, they take on a lot of patience so quality of care slips down the drain, be persistent and write your questions down.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Vermesh at The Center for Fertility & Gynecology?
At first the treatment was great and after my first failed ivf the treatment changed to more like a Financial transactions, I feel like they weren't telling me the truth about my chances.
Describe the protocols Michael Vermesh used in your cycles at The Center for Fertility & Gynecology and their degree of success.
On my first consultation, Dr Vermesh assess my ovaries to see how many eggs I had, then he check the lining of the uterus, during consultation he orders blood test for both me and my husband, I was told that my reproductive system was that of a 30yr old, so that made me feel it was going to work,he mention fibroids but they were too small to cause any problems.
He then discuss a plan then you sit with Finance to discuss the terms.
That routine continues only that Dr. Vermesh started consulting during the scan so there's no sitting down to discuss anything, priscriptions are written out by the nurses with instructions. During egg retrieval and transfers, I believe he should use someone with more steady hands and maybe supervise. He also hard sell a self made treatment that suppose to help with autoimmune illnesses at $500 during retrieval and transfer. I am disappointed because after two fails and over 50K lost with 7 high quality embryos, he was ready to start a third round, I said that's it I have no more money, then he said to see my doctor for the fibroids I had.
I felt somewhat exploited.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I understand that they can't get personal so it didn't work or it's a negative result as a response is expected.
Describe your experience with The Center for Fertility & Gynecology.
The clinic have a good doctor who is certainly overbooked, I don't know if that's how all fertility clinic work but desperate people are spending their life saving, so I think upfront honesty about your condition should be assessed and not to trade off of false hopes.
Were already going trough an emotional roller coaster.
