Dr Sachdev was the most compassionate and patient doctor I have encountered. She literally saved my life by diagnosing my cancer. I will always be grateful to her for everything she has done for me. She is incredibly knowledgeable and has great bedside manners...[she]started my egg preservation treatment aggressively knowing that I only had one shot at this since I would ne having a complete hysterectomy. Thanks to her I was able to freeze 10 eggs for future fertilization, making my chances greater in becoming a future mother
My [OC Fertility] nurses went far and beyond to get me the resources I needed for my treatment and updated my chart timely and communicated all changes effectively...The clinic is great in keeping appointments timely. My appointments were always scheduled to fit my work schedule. The staff is very helpful and resourceful. They ensure that your needs are met and that you have a clear understanding of what your procedure will consist of.

[Dr. Sachdev] explained everything clearly and gave me the hard numbers when I asked for them. She was honest and realistic. She answered my questions patiently. I saw her for every ultrasound. The one time I had to page her after hours she answered immediately. I really appreciate her caring manner and straightforward advice...Doctor talked to me about my preference first, and I had strong preference for single. She discussed the quality of our embryos and agreed that would be reasonable.
[OC Fertility is] small, which means more personal attention but also fewer available appointment slots. It also means they lack an on facility lab so all the labs are processed elsewhere. They are still able to give same day results by the end of the day...The only complaint I have is that their medication calendar wasn’t 100 percent accurate, I had to check and correct entries at least twice.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Nidhee Sachdve has exceeded expectations for what we had hoped to receive in care from a doctor...She is genuine in her care for her patients and always emphasizes that she is accessible via phone if we need to call for follow up questions or concerns ...When our second IVF transfer protocol wasn't going as planned (my body wasn't responding appropriately), we stopped to reevaluate the course as she never moves forward unless she is positive it is the best option for the patient
The whole staff [at OC Fertility], from front desk to the nurses to nursing staff have been incredible. They always greet us warmly, remember us, and check in often. They speak professionally but also in a way that is genuine. The work well with each other and every one seems to be educated on each patient. The financial coordinator is also very kind and checks in with us too. Everyone feels invested in our success
How was your experience with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
Dr. Nidhee Sachdve has exceeded expectations for what we had hoped to receive in care from a doctor. She is personable, intelligent, clear, and patient. She is genuine in her care for her patients and always emphasizes that she is accessible via phone if we need to call for follow up questions or concerns (this is rare). She is clear in her explanations of the body, procedures and treatments. She is clear in her intentions and is clear in her expectations of our fertility journey. When our second IVF transfer protocol wasn't going as planned (my body wasn't responding appropriately), we stopped to reevaluate the course as she never moves forward unless she is positive it is the best option for the patient. I have expressed to all my friends and family how much we appreciate Dr. Sachdev and how we wouldn't and couldn't be going through this with any one else. Her professional guidance and intelligence coupled with her capacity to connect on a human level makes her an extraordinary doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
I would advise a prospective patient to trust Dr. Sachdev implicitly. It is often difficult to trust fully when others are dealing with your body and psyche especially in combination with the fragile path of infertility, but she is a gem of a doctor who genuinely cares.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
OC Fertility has doctors, nurses and staff that equally humanized the process for us as opposed to a sterile transactional experience. Everyone consistently greets us by name, knows the details of our fertility treatments and checks in on us accordingly. We had consultations with two other clinics before we found OC Fertility and we felt as if we were another number in line. Dr. Sachdev has been exceptional at balancing her professionalism with being personable.
Describe the protocols Nidhee Sachdev used in your cycles at OC Fertility and their degree of success.
My husband and I had tried "naturally" for a year before we saw Dr. Sachdev. We started with IUI treatments. I took femara (which is equivalent to clomid but better if you have migraines) for five days before the IUI. (Noted that the sperm count and quality wasn't the best nor the worst). We did three rounds of IUI and none of them took. After three rounds Dr. Sachdev let us know of the probability of getting pregnant from IUI after three rounds. We were well informed and decided to move forward with IVF. The egg retrieval we had 17 eggs, 12 became blastocysts and after genetic testing five came back as genetically "normal". My IVF transfer protocol started with me starting birth control (norethindrone, an alternative BC for people with migraines), on the third day of my period. Nine days later I had an ultra sound and began lupron shots (still taking BC). I stopped BC after 13 days and continued lupron shots in the stomach. The next week I lowered the lupron shot amount and began an estrace pill (estrogen). The week after I kept taking estrace and added two estrogen patches on my stomach. The week after I stopped taking lupron. During the ultrasound the doctor noticed I was growing a follice (even though lurpon and BC should have stopped it). So she upped my transefer date, I took a ovulation trigger shot, to make sure the follicle ovualted before the transer, and I took six days of progestrone shots twice a day in the top part of my glutes. The IVF transfer was unsuccessful. We moved right on to the next IVF cycle and half way through the doctor discovered I was growing a follicle again, even though she had me on BC and lupron longer. So we decided to stop half way and reevaluate how to move forward. We were going to start a natural FET cycle but covid-19 happened and now we are stalled.
Describe your experience with your nurse at OC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Jessica, Krystal, Megan)
The whole staff, from front desk to the nurses to nursing staff have been incredible. They always greet us warmly, remember us, and check in often. They speak professionally but also in a way that is genuine. The work well with each other and every one seems to be educated on each patient. The financial coordinator is also very kind and checks in with us too. Everyone feels invested in our success and that feels encouraging during what feels like an often hopeless journey.
Describe your experience with OC Fertility.
OC Fertility is very clean, organized and accessible. The front desk staff is informed, professional and kind. The whole operation seems as if it operates smoothly and efficiently. They are an obvious team, truly they work together well. The clinic does not "sell" nor does it push you into procedures you aren't ready for. Our experience has been incredibly positive and structured just for our needs.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility.
Th consultation was $260. Each IUI was $2,500. Each ultraound was $300. IVE embryo retrieval was $15,600 not including genetic testing which was $1,950. Medications were $9,000. IVF tranfer cost was $4,000 plus $1,200 for medications. This all doesn't include $800 HSG test, $2,200 genetic carrier screening, and other various tests.
Describe Nidhee Sachdev's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at OC Fertility.
Dr. Sachdev strongly suggested we only transfer one embryo at a time. The risk for twins is too great and we have (now four) frozen embryos.

I had one shot at egg retrieval before my chemotherapy started. So Dr. Sachdev used an aggressive round of hormone injections to get as many eggs as possible. She was able to harvest 10 eggs total...Fertility preservation wasn’t something we were prepared for at this stage in our life and Dr. Sachdev was our light through the dark. We got five perfect embryos...She is young but she really knows what she is doing.
Dr. Sachdev’s office [OC Fertility Clinic] had special pricing for patients dealing with cancer...the clinic is beautiful, and so much more cozy then the others we went to. It didn’t have that sterile feel or like you were just a number to them. They make you feel seen and heard. When you call the office someone actually answers the phone, you aren’t ever placed on hold for 30 minutes. The office really feels like it patient focused.
How was your experience with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
I loved how straightforward she was with us. The facts were very reassuring in a time when there was a lot of unknown heading our way. I was diagnosed with cancer at 32 and she walked us through all the paperwork required to get assistance from the different organizations. Fertility preservation wasn’t something we were prepared for at this stage in our life and Dr. Sachdev was our light through the dark. We got five perfect embryos! We couldn’t be more pleased.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
Don’t hesitate to see her. She is young but she really knows what she is doing. Also, my very loving mother wanted to come to every appointment and Dr. Sachdev accommodated is every time.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
Everyone in the office knew our names and knew our story. They made a really bad situation so much easier by making us feel like family.
Describe the protocols Nidhee Sachdev used in your cycles at OC Fertility and their degree of success.
I had one shot at egg retrieval before my chemotherapy started. So Dr. Sachdev used an aggressive round of hormone injections to get as many eggs as possible. She was able to harvest 10 eggs total. From our first consultation we were informed to expect 1-3 chromosome normal embryos at the end of our treatment. So to our complete surprise we ended up with 5 perfect embryos! We have 3 boys and 2 girls.
Describe your experience with your nurse at OC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: They have an individual nurse for each part of the process. )
As I said previously, they entire staff made us feel like family. Everyone knew our names when we walked in and our story. They were always cheerful and happy to see us.
Describe your experience with OC Fertility.
Honestly the clinic is beautiful, and so much more cozy then the others we went to. It didn’t have that sterile feel or like you were just a number to them. They make you feel seen and heard. When you call the office someone actually answers the phone, you aren’t ever placed on hold for 30 minutes. The office really feels like it patient focused.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility.
Dr. Sachdev’s office had special pricing for patients dealing with cancer. It was very much appreciated during that time as we had a lot of medical bills popping up.
Describe Nidhee Sachdev's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at OC Fertility.
We haven’t gotten to that point in our treatment yet. We have to search for a surrogate, due to the cancer I won’t be able to carry our children.

I felt that [Dr. Sachdev] truly cares about me, wanted me to understand the options, the pros and cons for different treatments and was truly rooting for me. When I was on the fence about different treatments she gave her opinions only when asked...makes herself available for random questions- even on weekends...When she had bad news to deliver, she was patient and empathetic while remaining hopeful that we can work together to get me pregnant without toxic positivity.
[OC Fertility Clinic] Easy to make appointments, high tech and clean office, always on time, prompt follow up, friendly staff, good communication, availability of additional resources, provided recommendations on support groups and acupuncturist...They remember small personal details and always ask and follow up about you...Always on time and follow up when they say they will follow up. So compassionate and friendly.
How was your experience with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
Very warm personality, treats you like a human, not just a patient. Was very good at explaining complicated science in a way that both me and my husband could understand, set realistic expectations, was able to help me make thought decisions about my treatment, appreciated that she didn't jump to IVF right away and didn't push it, took the time to get to know us personally, makes herself available for random questions- even on weekends.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
Dont hold back on any questions no matter how silly or simple they may seem. She will take the time to explain in a way you understand- she is very patient, dont be embarassed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
I felt that Dr. Sachdev truly cares about me, wanted me to understand the options, the pros and cons for different treatments and was truly rooting for me. When I was on the fence about different treatments she gave her opinions only when asked and talked to me as if I were her sister or family member, not a patient. She also made sure to start with small talk prior to big conversations- like TV shows we were watching, updates on trips planned- again she wanted me to feel like she cared not that she just needed to be get in and out of the appointment. When she had bad news to deliver, she was patient and empathetic while remaining hopeful that we can work together to get me pregnant without toxic positivity.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Sachdev is someone I’d definitely refer to any of my friends seeking a professional...really good at what she does and very personable...looking at very advanced approaches...answer all of my questions in great detail which I appreciated... strong preference to one embryo being my situation and age and first ivf they would not do multiples( I asked a few times).
The clinic [OC Fertility] is very well run...booked an appointment and when I came in the front desk said I was mistaken and it was the following day...didn’t argue and the front desk said they could fit me in...FET protocols were incorrect a couple times. They were quick to confirm or update it after my inquiries though...ivf was 24k plus medicines..
How was your experience with Nidhee Sachdev at OC Fertility?
She’s very smart and informative. I did find her to answer all of my questions in great detail which I appreciated. There were only one times they forgot to give me the results of critical testing result which flipped our lives around. Distinctly no one told me my husbands blood test results until I asked and this was rigjt prior to one IUI process ( the second time) and caused us to later basically switch to ivf because time was burned. Am not sure if this was the error of the nurse or doctor but specifically the weeks following that were hell for us. The experience was not fun laying on the examination table and then because I asked by chance my husbands blood test results (because no one called me prior) that it changed the entire course of our approach for that exercise. Had I not asked we would have completed the IUI. I remember having so many questions and no one having answers for us. It was only until the next appointment with Dr Moeyeri which I was put more at ease with her explanation. That almost made us not want to continue treatment with anyone. We did however later go forward with ivf and that entire process with the doctor was great and good experiences. Looking back Dr. Sachdev is someone I’d definitely refer to any of my friends seeking a professional. She’s really good at what she does and very personable.

Describe the protocols Nidhee Sachdev used in your cycles at OC Fertility and their degree of success.
Don’t remember much about drug protocols aside from progesterone in oil was used at the end at 1mg 2 times a day plus estriadrol patchs
Describe your experience with your nurse at OC Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Jessica)
I don’t think Jessica was my primary nurse or assistant but she was top notch of all the nurses . The others were all really great too but she was definitely on the same wavelength with me. Informative yet engaged. Not too intrusive and always professional
Describe your experience with OC Fertility.
They were all very professional and informative. The clinic is very well run and I actually appreciated the need for cleanliness in there. I did witness one appointment dr moayeri chewing out a staff for accountability on cleaning cycles for a room. It was a little tense for me as I already have a lot on my mind about my own body and was in stirrups. But I understand as a manager and business owner how myself would feel of staff how that feels. I did through my ivf cycle have to be an eagle eye on my medical directives and had a couple times I contacted the office and the nurses had to correct whatever they put in the FET because it was incorrectly noting medication days or amount. That made me more on alert that their offices can make mistakes. I mean we are all human. Also my first time with progesterone injectable home, nobody showed me how to use the needles and I went home thinking I was supposed to follow the pharmacy website directives only to find it was to be done differently. I think the above examples were more the clinic Protocols rather than the doctors. The doctors are definitely top notch. I really like their organization overall and look forward to going back.

What specific things went wrong at OC Fertility?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost appointments
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at OC Fertility.
I mentioned it already in the earlier responses. No one told me my husbands blood test results until by chance I asked right before the procedure and thus stopped our in office iui procedure. They said I could go home and try but with what they knew at that point in time they ethically couldn’t move forward. Of course we weren’t going to try at home. That could have been avoided while I’m in office to suddenly all figure that out. Ended up being a non issue for me and husband but at that point it was burning another month away of potential treatment. We turned to immediately ivf after that because it was already months later. - A time I booked an appointment and when I came in the front desk said I was mistaken and it was the following day. I was certain I Did not being it was my first time there and got a reminder call prior for that appointment . I didn’t argue and the front desk said they could fit me in... but that did only happen once. - FET protocols were incorrect a couple times. They were quick to confirm or update it after my inquiries though.
