I would recommend him [Dr. Nathan Berger] at his current practice for a women in her early 30s w/o any fertility problems who wanted an inexpensive doctor to perform pretty routine IUI (single or lesbian woman). Otherwise, I would say that his current practice doesn't measure up to other, more expensive places. He was really ideal when he had his own fertility practice...He was generally friendly, a bit of a god-complex maybe...

How was your experience with Nathan Berger at MedStar Health?
I would recommend him at his current practice for a women in her early 30s w/o any fertility problems who wanted an inexpensive doctor to perform pretty routine IUI (single or lesbian woman). Otherwise, I would say that his current practice doesn't measure up to other, more expensive places. He was really ideal when he had his own fertility practice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nathan Berger at MedStar Health?
Consider carefully if you need a 7 day a week practice and if you are likely to need anything more advanced than Clomid + IUI.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nathan Berger at MedStar Health?
He was generally friendly, a bit of a god-complex maybe. The quality of care was MUCH higher when he had his own fertility practice. I got pregnant first try. When trying to conceive a second time, he was with a bigger practice, not specializing in fertility, and I felt he did not do the testing I needed and was not especially attentive. Also---No weekend hours!!!
Describe the protocols Nathan Berger used in your cycles at MedStar Health and their degree of success.
All were Clomid cycles, can't remember exact doses.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Excellent at his first practice, pretty shoddy at his second practice.
Describe your experience with MedStar Health.
Currently, part of a fairly large and very busy gyn practice.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nathan Berger at MedStar Health.
Very reasonable. About $700 for an IUI cycle plus medications.

He [Dr. Nathan Berger] really helped us to understand how donor eggs could work for us. However he was willing to try as many retrievals as I was willing to do with my own eggs. He explained that donor eggs would be a better and more successful route for us...He was also very honest without being cruel. He never gave up on us even when things were very dismal...He was usually late on my appointments but always worth the wait. He also has a great sense of humor to help in delicate situations.

Be patient with him on being late. He also gives you the same amount of time. Not rushed appointments.

He listened. He was also very honest without being cruel. He never gave up on us even when things were very dismal.
Describe your experience with MedStar Health.
I think a more clear eXplanation of cost and what exactly is covered through insurance and what needs to be paid out of pocket. This was confusing for us.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nathan Berger at MedStar Health.
It cost about $16,000 to use donor eggs. Once we end that route insurance did not cover anything.
