Dr. Dayal is very warm and compassionate. She remembers details about you when you visit (both medical and personal). While we were seeking a second opinion before doing IVF she called to get a check-up on our progress. Although she will give her medical opinion and guidance, she is 100% supportive of OUR decisions through the process. She treats us as intellectuals and explains ideas that need elaboration, but doesn't overexplain ideas that we've "got." She has never once rushed an appointment with us. She has made it clear that us having a successful pregnancy is her priority.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Is it possible for a doctor to be too kind? I am struggling to come up with anything except that maybe at times I wish she was a little more forceful with her advice (ok, not really). But we may have made some different decisions to move quicker if she had guided us to. So have an idea of what your goals are when meeting with her.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amy Albertson)
We've only met with Amy once so far (just starting out) but she seems kind, competent, and organized. I am relieved that she is our nurse.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
My experiences with the clinic have been the only thing that has not been great about the process. Everyone is VERY warm and friendly, and a lot of the staff gets to know you personally, but they honestly can be a bit disorganized at times. Nothing major so far, but things like calling to cancel/reschedule an appointment and it not getting noted. Sometimes I feel like I am responsible for reminding them of details that I think the should have recorded. Like I said, not horrible! But there have been a few moments.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
If I remember correctly, IUIs were somewhere around $1,000 a piece (roughly), and we've been quoted about $10,000 for the first round of egg retrieval, $5,000 if we have to do a second round, $3,000-6,000 for meds (ours is $4,250), $450 for anesthetic, and approximately $5,000 for transfers.
Describe Molina Dayal's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
We have not yet gone through the process of IVF, but in our preliminary discussions, she has mentioned the odds of success for single vs. multiple and does seem to have a medical bias towards single. It seems like she would allow us to do two if we chose two, but she is definitely recommending one (which we will likely follow!)

I knew she [Dr. Molina Dayal] was in the trenches with us and wanted us to have a child. She was sympathetic and understanding to our needs. She never made us feel like we were anything but family. I can not speak highly enough about her or her staff. These people created my twins and will forever hold a spot in our hearts.... She would hug you on a bad day and be a cheerleader on a good day. She never made us feel like a patient but more like family. She cared whether we got pregnant or not.

How was your experience with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Fantastic, compassionate, smart doctor. She would hug you on a bad day and be a cheerleader on a good day. She never made us feel like a patient but more like family. She cared whether we got pregnant or not.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Take each step of the fertility treatment one step at a time. I found it worked best for us by taking each hurdle of this process one at a time versus having everything thrown at you at once. Dr. Dayal always did this for us.

Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
We did interlipid treatments before each transfer. When we had two miscarriages we added longer Interlipid treatments and more meds to ensure a positive test.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: MaryKay)
Fantastic!! They never sugar coated which I greatly appreciated. I am a "give it to me straight" and they always did this. I formed relationships with all of the staff and I would get excited to see them during my appointments. I coined MaryKay "my woobie" she was my security blanket and she always made me feel calm and relaxed. Also Jamie was fantastic to my husband and I. She gave me her cell number because I was such a worry wart and would let me text her whenever.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
My biggest complaint would be that it was bought out by Intermed and was ran a little more aggressively when it came to money. This was not anyone at the clinics fault and you would never know they were switched to a more corporate type place.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I want to say around 10,000.00 for a fresh cycle and 3,500 for a frozen.

She [Dr. Dayal] is very honest about each situation and about your progress...Upon seeing Dr. Dayal, I had blood work done and ultrasounds that determined that I needed a surgery to remove the build up of the lining of my uterus that when tested was cancerous and pre cancerous. The blood work also concluded that I do not produce some of the chemicals that are required to ovulate or to shed the lining of my uterus and fertility medications were not resulting in ovulation. Given all of the results and the results from the previous Dr. it was deemed that IVF would be the best course of treatment. She said that trying any other course of action would be just a waste of time and money because she didn't see a high chance of these courses having any results. Currently we are waiting and trying to save up money for IVF.

How was your experience with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
We are still waiting to save money for IVF so we are currently at a standstill. She has been very upfront and honest through the process so far. She has informed us of the best treatment and has not pushed us to try routes that she has thought to be a waste of both time and money since there would be no real chance of seeing results. She has first taken care of me and my overall health so that I am in the best possible position to get the best outcome.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
Do not go into this thinking that IFV is a last resort or that it is a terrible outcome. Know that it is a process and she will work with you and coming up with the best course of action.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas?
She has been very patient with your health as the top priority. She is very honest about each situation and about your progress.
Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
I went through many tests and a surgery. I had previously done rounds of Clovis with no results. I had an previous procedure before coming to see Dr. Dayal where they did a minor surgery to look at my uterus. It was determined that I had PCOS and a blocked tube. Upon seeing Dr. Dayal, I had blood work done and ultrasounds that determined that I needed a surgery to remove the build up of the lining of my uterus that when tested was cancerous and pre cancerous. The blood work also concluded that I do not produce some of the chemicals that are required to ovulate or to shed the lining of my uterus and fertility medications were not resulting in ovulation.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have worked with several of them and I can say that they are all very professional and they give you and overall sense that they care for your wellbeing and about your journey.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
The clinic is very informative and they are dedicated in helping you on your journey and in trying to find answers. They used to do seminars once a year for informative purposes and where they would draw to give away a free round of IVF if you were to require one but they are not doing this currently.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of Las Vegas.
So far, everything has been covered by my insurance for preventative care. Currently, the cost for my IVF is about $7,500 with medications costing between $3,000 and $5,000.

She's open to input on cycles from her patients and makes sure everyone in on the same page at each step in the process. I never left confused or frsutrated; she talked through every step.

Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
Before we started out FET ahe redid most testing which I appreciated. She redid the saline sonogram, blood Work, and did a new test for natural killer cells. Based on results I had polyps removed again, did intralipids, baby asprin, lovonox, etc. We ended up having to move to a fresh cycle and based on previous success and test results we did a micro-ivf cycle. We did lower doses of meds gonal-f and menopur.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
It's a smaller office and everyone is so caring. You really feel like you're the only patient. They after hours call back is fast and they answer email on the weekends. A NA, Jamie, at the clinic even started a Facebook group for our clinic as a extra place to get support. They go above and beyond!!
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I love that they offer discounts for law enforcement and teachera. I love the small office feel and how quickly you can get an apppintment. I love that Dr Dayal does all the ultrasounds and procedures herself. Sometimes the lady in the finance department can be a bit harsh. I also wish we could get bloodwork done in the office
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
Everyone had an appointment and everything was quick and on time!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.

Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
My first protocol with Dr. Dayal was very aggressive, inhave endo, adeno, fibroids, blocked tubes & DOR, so she went aggressive. Unfortunately there were only 2 eggs not even mature enough to retrieve. Our cycle was cancelled. We tried again, she went with a different protocol of low and slow and we ended up getting 5 eggs, but only 4 mature and fertilized. Day 5 nothing good enough to transfer and they said we could wait one more day. They called and our one little fighter had gone to a pre blast, so we got to transfer! Thought it was our miracle, but again ended in a negative outcome. We now are currently in the process of a Donor cycle that we will hopefully be retrieving in June!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: MerryKay)
MerryKay is our primary nurse and she has always shown compassion during our cycles. Recently with finally coming to the terms of making the decision to use donor eggs, she us been nothing short of excellent in helping us and making us feel comfortable!

Dr Dayal was very compassionate and had great bedside manner. She always explained everything in great detail. Spent an hour with us on our first consult visit...Dr Dayal had us try ourselves first with just meds since the success rate was similar with IUI and waiting on insurance. That was not successful. We then moved to IVF due to my age and history and my husband's sperm issues. First time was a lower protocol to see how my body reacted to it. It did not succeed. We then moved to a very high protocol since we didn't get very many eggs at all with low one. 2nd time we did not succeed either due to egg quality. 3rd time we tried with high protocol, acupuncture, and reduced stressed and we where successful. Dr Dayal did suggest acupuncture and that my stress levels were to high.

How was your experience with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr Dayal was very compassionate and had great bedside manner. She always explained everything in great detail. Spent an hour with us on our first consult visit. We conceived on our 3 IVF try and we never felt like just another statistic with her like with other clinics we had used.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
They always called with results as soon as they got them from the lab. Always answered emails or messages I left if I had issues or questions quickly. Only bad thing was our nurse/case coordinator moved away so we were left in limbo for a little bit without a direct point of contact.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.

She was quick to give back results, even the ones that were abnormal. I always felt so at ease with her and it helped me to stay positive in the struggle of infertility...Dr. Dayal never made me feel like I was a number. I saw her at every single appointment and she talked to me so kindly. I never was talked down to, any of my questions dismissed, or thought to be inferior to her. Her entire office was like this. They became like family to me...

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Stay with her! She will work wonders for you! Trust her. She knows what she's doing!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr. Dayal never made me feel like I was a number. I saw her at every single appointment and she talked to me so kindly. I never was talked down to, any of my questions dismissed, or thought to be inferior to her. Her entire office was like this. They became like family to me.
Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
I was on an agonist protocol with Lupron as my suppressant because my labs came back pretty good. I was on a medium protocol, Dr. Dayal said. I ended up getting 25 eggs, so it worked well for me and the maturity and embryo production was great! I didn't feel like it was a "cookie cutter" protocol at all!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
My main nurse as well as the entire nursing staff were amazing to me. I had most of their email addresses and would email them at all hours (literally, I emailed some of them at 10 pm and got responses back). I had to call the on-call nurse once and got to talk to them late at night as well when I had a medication question. I had no hesitation in her voice as she helped me and walked me through a mini-freak out. The girls who brought me back for all the ultrasounds were always smiling and so excited to see me!
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I think there are a lot of strengths with this clinic. Their front office staff is always smiling when they greet me, I was always able to make appointments that worked with my schedule. They are super organized, know what their doing and run it like a well oiled machine. That makes me feel great, as I tend to be a very organized person. I didn't get a lot of interaction with the lab directly but they definitely took good care of my embryos, so that's fine with me!

How was your experience with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr. Dayal is an extremely intelligent and compassionate healthcare provider. If anything, some of her talents in more complex cases may be limited by the protocols of belonging to a large organization like SIRM.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Research, research, research. For any fertility patient - you are your best advocate. The best way to partner with Dr. Dayal (and any doctor) is to educate yourself, ask questions, and understand the realities and difficulties of fertility treatment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
It was fantastic to see Dr. Dayal at all of my visits and have ultrasounds interpreted in real time. As the clinic started to build a larger patient base, it became much harder to schedule timely appointments.
Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
Under the care of Dr. Dayal I completed 1 fresh cycle - resulting in a miscarriage and 1 frozen embryo. 1 Frozen transfer - resulting in a chemical pregnancy. 1 egg retrieval with ICSI for CGH testing - resulting in 1 CGH normal pregnancy. 1 cancelled cycle - intended for banking more CGH screened embryos. 1 Frozen transfer of 1 CGH normal embryo - resulting in a current Mo-Di twin pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amy Albertson)
Amy is smart, kind, and compassionate. Often times her patient load seemed to be on the heavy side though.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
There is very little flexibility with appointment times. It is also important to know that they provide preferential treatment times to those that are 'in cycle.' Whether a patient is in cycle receiving a treatment or receiving an ultrasound after a cycle - they should be treated with the same level of importance and respect.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
Ultrasounds, visits, etc. were included in the treatment pricing packages. Medications and any extra procedures were not.

Dr Dayal took over my treatment half way through, Dr Sher had done my egg retrieval and first two transfers then he went back to Las Vegas and Dr Dayal took over. The first real time she saw us was for our first ultrasound of our very first pregnancy, I was 7 weeks pregnant, our baby had stopped growing at 6 weeks and she had to tell us there was no heartbeat, I could not have asked for a better experience at a horrible time, it was clear she was upset for us and she hugged me before I left.

The first real time she saw us was for our first ultrasound of our very first pregnancy, I was 7 weeks pregnant, our baby had stopped growing at 6 weeks and she had to tell us there was no heartbeat, I could not have asked for a better experience at a horrible time, it was clear she was upset for us and she hugged me before I left. When we had issues getting my lining to grow for frozen transfers she was willing to try different things and never gave up. Our son is two and we've had some losses since he was born, Dr Dayal has still been there for us whenever we had questions or needed help. She is a very special person who is great at her job, I know you want objective comments but I genuinely don't have a bad thing to say.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Be honest with her, about your fears or goals, she will listen and even if it seems like you're asking a stupid question she will never make you feel that way.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr Dayal would talk to us about our cycle and what was happening, she never talked in general terms of treatment, it was always about our specific cycle.
Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
My lining doesn't grow well for frozen cycles so I was on terbutaline and viagra, on my final cycle my lining still wasn't as good as she wanted so we added vaginal estrace, it worked in two days. I was also on intra lipid infusions for elevated nk cells and a partial dq alpha match.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Jamie Layman )
Jamie was my co ordinator and MerryKay was my nurse, I think they have very different styles, with Jamie making friends more and being the shoulder to cry on and MK being the cool and collected one that gave the answers and could pull you back to earth when the hormones are making you crazy. They both answered emails very quickly and made me feel not alone, they are a great team.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
For me the main strength and the reason I'd never go anywhere else is the fact that you actually see the RE at each appointment, she does your monitoring ultrasound so there's no waiting around for a phone call later, you get your answer straight away. Half way through my time there a place opened right next door to get your blood work, they would send over your lab request so you could go there first, it's very efficient. Even Stephanie the receptionist would greet you by name and know why you were there, from the moment you walk in you feel welcome. I would like to see prices on the Website but I'm very happy that they have recently joined up with a medical loan company. Even if we were to move away if we ever do another cycle we would travel back to Missouri to use Dr Dayal.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
We paid for the two cycle plan which included two fresh cycles and unlimited frozen transfers, we didn't get to use the second fresh because we had our son from the final frozen embryo, because we done four frozen cycles it saved us money. We had to pay separately for anesthesia and blood work.
Describe Molina Dayal's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
Due to our partial dq alpha match we were only allowed to transfer one embryo at a time because of the belief if we put one back that was a match it could cause it's to lose both of them, I personally don't see a need to transfer more than one, out of 5 set we had 3 positive tests with one live birth.

That mistake cost us years of grief and 3 precious embryos... Each time we got over 20 eggs and each time only 3 made it to day 6 embryos.

Advocate for yourself. Ask every question you can and come prepared to your visit

Dr Dayal has very good bedside manner and the staff is fantastic.
Describe the protocols Molina Dayal used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of St. Louis and their degree of success.
I honestly can’t remember the protocol but we did do it twice and I was and am disappointed with the results. Each time we got over 20 eggs and each time only 3 made it to day 6 embryos. I feel like we should have made some changes the second tune around
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amy)
They were all fantastic. I had one issue once with a receptionist and brought it up to my nurse and never had the issue again. In fact she was then pleasant the next time we came in. I also can not say enough good things about the coordinator Jamie. She is amazing
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
Strengths-bed side manner, dr Dayal is in every appointment so you can always ask her questions. You don’t feel like a number and the care is very good. Weaknesses-for me it was the huge miss of my uterus. It was such an easy thing to catch and I honestly think she overlooked it bc it had been previously evaluated. If this hadn’t been missed things would be very different for us.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I had some insurance coverage and we got a discount for my husband being military each retrieval was around 6000 and meds about 5000
Describe Molina Dayal's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I had surgery on my uterus due to the septum so multiple embryo transfer was never even a thought for us or a discussion. As the patient I don’t want it

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr. Molina and her staff have a wonderful bedside manner. This is my 2nd center and I'm shocked at the difference in care between the two.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of St. Louis. (Assigned nurse: Amanda Tayon)
The care coordinators and nursing staff at SIRM-St. Louis are fantastic. For example, in my previous cycle prior to coming to SIRM, I was in my RE doctor's office once. I only communicated via email with my coordinator. I felt like a number. It's a completely different scenario at SIRM...and much for the better. It's a sense of compassion and of comradery.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
Absolutely nothing is negative about SIRM. In fact, you can now do both your ultrasounds and your blood work in their office! It's not only great care, it's incredibly convenient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis.
I have insurance coverage, but I have to say that without coverage, my cost would be around 11k/cycle. Note that I'm on an estrogen priming cycle, so my meds are expensive.

I don't know that I have anything negative to say about the clinic.

The staff are all very helpful and knowledgable at their jobs, and seem to be genuinely interested in helping us reach our goals.

How was your experience with Molina Dayal at Sher Fertility of St. Louis?
Dr. Dayal is an excellent doctor. I can't say enough good things about her. After receiving disappointing results with two previous doctors in my state, I researched immunology issues further and found Dr. Dayal. I scheduled a Skype consult and immediately knew after talking to her for just a short time that she was going to do everything she could to figure out why I wasn't getting pregnant.

I didn't get pregnant with either IUI I had...She explained everything very well and I feel that she was as excited as I was at my IUI's.... She does whatever she can to try and get you pregnant! :) My experience with her was great even though it didn't end in pregnancy.
