How was your experience with Ndidiamaka Onwubalili at Diamond Institute for Infertility?
My experiences with fertility started as follows. Back in 2013 I went to a doctor in NYC and he was not personable and I left confused as to next steps. So, when I first encountered Dr. O, I was skeptical based upon my first experience. However, lets just say I was pleasantly surprised, excited and comfortable all at the same time. First the fertility clinic is about 15 to 20 minutes from my home which is great. Second, Dr. O is very personable. I explained to her what I did back in 2013 and then what I was looking to do at this time. Since as women, when you get past 35 years old, society would have you believe you are barren after that age with no other alternatives. So, I was happy to be able to explain to Dr. O that I was over 35 with no kids and that my husband has a daughter, my exes have kids but I have none of my own. So, as with most women this subject is sensitive; not to mention pressure from my mother being an only child. Therefore, Dr. O made it very easy for me to talk to her about my life experiences and my desire to have kids. I also explained to Dr. O that I was born premature and that I was not quite sure if that would affect my ability to produce a child. Dr. O started with the basic assessments which is blood work and monitoring my menstrual cycle. Then we went on to treat my fiancee with the man doctor for urinalysis etc. My overall experience with Dr. O was top notch. I just cannot move forward until I have monies to start the treatments. Dr. O is waiting on us to provide her status as to payments for the treatments and then we can take it from there.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ndidiamaka Onwubalili at Diamond Institute for Infertility?
Be as honest as possible as to your situation coming in for your consultation. Dr. O is a straight up individual, but with compassion so she will tell you like it is and provide you the best alternatives in the nicest way possible, so just be honest
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ndidiamaka Onwubalili at Diamond Institute for Infertility?
Dr. O, which is what I affectionate call her, which should also give you some indication as to my feeling as a human not a person. Dr. O is very personable and inviting. I was somewhat nervous meeting with her the first time and she put myself and all my fears in place so that I was willing to make the best decisions possible. Dr. O provides you the reality of fertility treatments and as a woman what your body goes through in dealing with changes to your hormones. Dr. O does not talk for the sake of talking, she provides a realistic approach to fertility treatment
Describe the protocols Ndidiamaka Onwubalili used in your cycles at Diamond Institute for Infertility and their degree of success.
My main treatment with Dr. O at that time was to monitor my prolactin levels. When I took my bloodwork, my prolactin levels were high so Dr. O prescribes for me to go take an MRI to make sure that they messages in my brain which produce the milk are working properly. The MRI came out positive. The next step was to start treatments but I am waiting on assistance since my insurance does not cover IVF treatments
Describe your experience with your nurse at Diamond Institute for Infertility. (Assigned nurse: Ella Roychowdhury)
Nursing staff is wonderful and Ella specifically has the best personality and we are very personable with one another.
Describe your experience with Diamond Institute for Infertility.
The clinics strengths are locations, front desk receptionists and education of the nurses . The staff is very friendly and is willing to assist with any questions or concerns. The clinics weakness is the drawing of blood process. Since there are many nurses and nurse practioners, I think it would be in the clinics best interest to assign two (2) nurses to each patient then if you are only getting blood work drawn you can then see only one of the nurses that is assigned to you instead of seeing a new individual and then you may have to explain to them status of your file and why you are there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ndidiamaka Onwubalili at Diamond Institute for Infertility.
Approx $3,000.00 thus far between the MRI test for prolactin levels, the Mulitvitamin costs, the prolactin medications, medications for my fiancee. I have yet to start treatments yet waiting on grant or additional funds to pay for treatments
Describe Ndidiamaka Onwubalili's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Diamond Institute for Infertility.
Dr. O believes that single embryo is healthier than multiple. My comment is I would go with the doctor's recommendation. Most women facing this issue I would think would want multiples but since Dr. O states that this is not a healthy approach then I would defer to her expertise.

The nursing staff always got back to me quickly with any questions I had and I always had plenty.
Describe your experience with Diamond Institute for Infertility.
Diamond is a full service facility. I had to have a polyp removed and they were easily able to do it for me in their surgical suite. I've never had surgery of any kind before and I would say that the procedure was seamless in my opinion. Because they have the ability to do everything on site they are super convenient. The time available for monitoring during your cycle work well with a standard work schedule, they are available super early in the morning. The only issue is that it is hard to get consultation appointments that don't interfere with the work day.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ndidiamaka Onwubalili at Diamond Institute for Infertility.
My insurance covered my IUI cycles we may have paid $300 out of pocket between 3 cycles, surgery and diagnostics test.

She [Dr. Onwubalili] was very caring and I never felt like she didn't care about my situation.... She is very warmed hearted and cares for all her patients. I always felt very welcomed by her. She explained each procedure and the risks associated with them. She always gave her most professional opinion.... Like any clinic, it gets very crowded. You can make appointments but also there were walk-in hours where you would just sign your name on the sign in sheet. There is plenty of staff to accommodate your needs.
