He is open, honest and willing to listen and try new things. He admits and understands that everyone is different and individual and there is no such thing as a textbook case which I appreciate. He is willing to try new and different treatments and has offered us hope and support as well as suggestions with this difficult situation.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Neel Parekh at Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center?
Dr. Parekh is really great, he specializes in Male Factor Infertility/Urology at Cleveland Clinic and my husband and I found him after a bad experience with another doctor at Summa Health Center. Dr. Parekh is great about taking the time to sit down with you, tell you the steps and answer questions. He is also incredibly open to trying different treatments and listening to his patients. HE has never pressured us and is open and honest and will tell it like it is. We are currently trying a second meditation for my husband's Azoospermia which will hopefully prevent us from having to do MicroTESE surgery. The previous doctor we saw gave us no hope and told us that nothing would help besides surgery which is incredibly expensive. Dr. Parekh at least gives us some hope that there may be another solution.
Describe the protocols Neel Parekh used in your cycles at Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center and their degree of success.
My husband had done an SA at my RE, which is where we found out he has 0 sperm. After a second SA it was confirmed that he has Azoospermia. After waiting nearly 2 months to see the doctor we were referred to by my RE we were left feeling completely discouraged when he said there was no hope or treatment and that our only option was surgery with a success rate of 30%. Refusing to give up I quickly made an appointment at Cleveland Clinic with Dr. Parekh. We immediatly felt 100x more comfortable with him. He took the time to look over the charts and information as well as answer questions, he said that based on the labs he was encouraged and hopeful that we may not have to do surgery at all with different medications. He prescribed my husband Anastrazole and after 3 months of still not seeing a significant change switched him to Clomid. We ill find out in another 3 months if it has helped or not before deciding to do MicroTESE surgery.

Dr. Parekh was excellent and empathetic. He clearly discussed my husbands semen analysis and made sure we understood the impact a varicocele had on his fertility and what options were available to us... He made me and my husband feel at ease and promptly replied to questions the arose. The surgery for varicocele was seamless and my husbands recovery was quick. Most importantly, the semen analysis looked better and we were able to conceive naturally 6 months after surgery.
