How was your experience with Mickey Coffler at HRC?
Dr. Coffler was warm but not thorough. He failed to diagnose me with endometriosis, which I later discovered via surgery with another doctor. There were so many patients that I’m not surprised by this. He was optimistic for us when I felt like maybe it was unwarranted.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mickey Coffler at HRC?
Ask questions; do plenty of homework.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mickey Coffler at HRC?
Dr. Coffler was kind and caring; his nurse at the time was a bit stressed out.
Describe the protocols Mickey Coffler used in your cycles at HRC and their degree of success.
I believe he preferred frozen cycles. I think I was close to overstimming, so he administered Lupron to release the eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at HRC. (Assigned nurse: Noelle )
Noelle was scattered and easily flustered.
Describe your experience with HRC.
There are too many patients here; however, the prices are good. It’s important to advocate strongly for yourself. Ensure you get all of the lab tests, ask about endometriosis, PCs, etc. I felt discouraged going through treatment here because I had a natural chemical pregnancy prior to starting IVF, so the doctor was very optimistic about my ability to conceive. When I had three transfers that were unsuccessful, I was puzzled about why it didn’t work. I left that clinic with more questions than when I came in. Again, Dr. Coffler was very kind, and I believe he was competent, but there were too many patients to give adequate time to each one’s concerns.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at HRC.
Monitoring appointments took place in the morning.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mickey Coffler at HRC.
We received a military discount; I believe the cost of the egg retrieval and embryo formation along with drugs ran around $9000.
Describe Mickey Coffler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at HRC.
No strong preference as I recall.
