[Dr. Kuzbari] suggested doing an ERA- Endometrial Receptivity Array- which tests the uterus to see if it is ready for implementation. Majority of woman were ready on day 5 however the test showed that I was ready at day 6 and needed the extra progesterone. That test was a game changer. Thrilled to report that the latest transfer of two embryos worked perfectly and I’m pregnant with twins!

How was your experience with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari always has an optimistic viewpoint and an upbeat personality. It really helps you through the heartbreaks along this journey. After two failed genetically tested transfers, my husband and I were beside ourselves. Everything looked “perfect” why was this not working? That’s when we sat down with Dr. Kuzbari and developed a new game plan. He suggested doing an ERA- Endometrial Receptivity Array- which tests the uterus to see if it is ready for implementation. Majority of woman were ready on day 5 however the test showed that I was ready at day 6 and needed the extra progesterone. That test was a game changer. Thrilled to report that the latest transfer of two embryos worked perfectly and I’m pregnant with twins!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
You are with a terrific doctor who has your absolute best interest at heart.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari always has an optimistic viewpoint and an upbeat personality. The IVF journey is mentally and physically exhausting. Dr. Kuzbari is extremely empathetic, kind and genuinely cares about you and your goal of getting pregnant. There were some dark days along our journey but Dr. Kuzbari’s bedside manner really helps you through those days and is always encouraging for the next step.
Describe the protocols Oumar Kuzbari used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We did two rounds of retrieval process at first. The first round only came back with one genetically healthy embryo. My husband and I decided to go right into the next round since we knew we would want more than one child in the future and I was mentally in the mood to endure another round. As previously stated in the question prior, we had two failed genetically tested transfers. My husband and myself were heartbroken. Everything looked “perfect” why was this not working? That’s when we sat down with Dr. Kuzbari and developed a new game plan. He suggested doing an ERA- Endometrial Receptivity Array- which tests the uterus to see if it is ready for implementation. Majority of woman were ready on day 5 however the test showed that I was ready at day 6 and needed the extra progesterone. That test was a game changer. Thrilled to report that the latest transfer of two embryos worked perfectly and I’m pregnant with twins! If it was not for the ERA test I would not be pregnant. Very greatful he suggested it because it is considered on the “cutting edge” of technology and not every state performs the test from my understanding. We were just so fortunate to be in the right state with the right doctor.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were fantastic. Don’t have anything negative to say about anyone. We were there for almost 1.5 years so we knew everyone pretty well. Even the billing department was a breeze to deal with. Cat in scheduling was always so thorough and answered all my ridiculous question. If you called with questions, they would always call you back that day. Several times I had to call after hours and it went over to the answering service, I always had a call back within 20 mins (usually from a doctor) to answer my question.
Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
I was very naïve walking into this process. How hard can it be? Well, I had an extremely rude awaking. It is mentally, physically and financially (thanks to not so great insurance) exhausting. You are in great hands at SJF and just keep focusing on the big picture.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at South Jersey Fertility Center.
With blood work and ultrasound it was always scheduled before 8:45am. Very convenient if you needed to work
Describe the costs associated with your care under Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center.
It was pricy. We did multiple rounds, transfers, genetic testing and the ERA test so there always seemed to be a bill in our mailbox. Hopefully our kids put us in a nice oceanfront nursing home in the future as a thank you.
Describe Oumar Kuzbari's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at South Jersey Fertility Center.
We had a total of three transfers. The first two were single embryos and the third and final one was two. I was the advocate for two because I couldn’t mentally handle another potentially failed transfer. Dr. Kuzbari went over the pros and cons of having twins and I was well aware of the potential. My husband still has not fully comprehend that we are having twins but luckily he still has time on his side for it to sink in :)

How was your experience with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari is absolutely amazing. He truly cares about helping his patient's achieve their goal of parenthood. He clearly discusses the risks and benefits. He never made me feel like an inconvenience or a problem. He answered my millions of questions and even elaborated on them once I asked them. Although I haven't achieved a pregnancy yet, I am happy with the care I have received from Dr. Kuzbari.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Be prepared for open communication.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari is open and honest. He doesn't treat you like a number or a statistic. He discussed the pro's and con's of treatment and applied it to our unique situation.
Describe the protocols Oumar Kuzbari used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We used Gonal F, Menopur and Cetrotide. After my first cycle resulted in an unsuccessful transfer, another doctor in the practice changed my protocol slightly to have my stim longer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at South Jersey Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Amanda)
Amanda and the other IVF Coordinators are kind and caring. They help with the procedures also and they help you stay relaxed.
Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
They are a large clinic and quite busy but it's never difficult to get an appointment for your monitoring. They know you by name and they remember you. They don't do IVF in batches so you don't have to sit around waiting for other people. I was the only one doing an egg retrieval the day of my 2nd retrieval and that wasn't a problem for them.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at South Jersey Fertility Center.
I went to a satellite office, not the main office. The weekday monitoring appointments are fine. No wait, they run on time. The Saturday appointments are a little chaotic as only one office is open and we all have to go to that office, but it wasn't a long wait.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center.
My insurance covered the majority of my treatments. With my first retrieval I was on different insurance and had to pay $400 out of pocket for the anesthesia. With my 2nd retrieval my insurance covered the anesthesia. I had to pay $500 to freeze my embryo and $300 to freeze it for 6 months.
Describe Oumar Kuzbari's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at South Jersey Fertility Center.
Dr. Kuzbari made sure I understood the risk of multiples but they recommended transferring both embryos we had from our first cycle.

Dr. Kuzbari spoke with me gently but candidly. He provided reassurance as needed to keep my spirits and hopes high but he was also keenly aware to not misrepresent information or mislead me into thinking this process was fool proof. He let me know in the most delicate way that at my advanced age, producing a viable embryo may be improbable but it certainly was not impossible and he held on to the possibility just as strongly as I did.

How was your experience with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Although I would have preferred to have been introduced to Dr. Kuzbari from the onset of my fertility journey and to have subsequently be seen only by him, I feel grateful that I had the opportunity to be under his care as often as I was. Dr. Kuzbari remained quietly optimistic that one of those tricks up his sleeve would produce the results I so badly desired. I felt that his knowledge of current fertility practices (new age methods) was strong. He expressed such a high level of confidence in recommending the plan that he thought would be the most beneficial for me. Dr. Kuzbari always seemed genuinely happy for the smallest sign of progress or positive response. And when things didn't quite work out, he seemed just as disappointed as I was. But no matter the outcome on any given day, he made me feel supported, he inspired me to keep a positive outlook and most importantly he was not ready to give up without exhausting all possible options that might bring success!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
don't hesitate to ask any question, no matter how trivial or embarrassing you may think it us. Dr. Kuzbari is very open and non-judgmental.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari spoke with me gently but candidly. He provided reassurance as needed to keep my spirits and hopes high but he was also keenly aware to not misrepresent information or mislead me into thinking this process was fool proof. He let me know in the most delicate way that at my advanced age, producing a viable embryo may be improbable but it certainly was not impossible and he held on to the possibility just as strongly as I did. Even though I was seen by other doctors, Dr. Kuzbari always made me feel like I was his very special patient. Of course he checked on all of my results and provided recommendations on medication protocol and treatment plans. but it was more than that. Dr. Kuzbari was so attentive, so compassionate, so meticulous in his care for me. i felt like me (and my embryo...now fetus) were Dr. Kuzbari's prized Fabrege egg and he would stop at nothing to protect us and eventually bring us together. His commitment never waivered.
Describe the protocols Oumar Kuzbari used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I went through 4 IUIs and 6 IVF cycles. I will admit, it's overwhelming and difficult to keep track of. But each step warranted a different strategy. 1st we were trying to get pregnant as 'naturally' as possible so we tried IUI. (it worked but the results were a tubal pregnancy) when we moved to IVF, the plan changed specific to the intended goal: 1st we were trying to retrieve a good quantity of quality eggs. 2nd we were preparing to thicken my uterine lining 3rd we tested to determine if my thin lining was receptive and 4th and finally, we focused on preparing my body for the frozen egg transfer The different strategies led to an increasingly better understanding of how my body was responding to different medication. The science of fertility is not always predictable but chances of success i'm sure are improved when under the care of a doctor like Dr. Kuzbari who can effectively and accurately assess results and initiate the appropriate changes.
Describe your experience with your nurse at South Jersey Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Cat (Marlton) Mary (EHT))
Cat was amazing. She encouraged me every step of the way and maintained such a high level of patience (I'm sure at some point i drove her crazy) but she always spoke to me in an un-hurried, gentle and supportive manner. She was so thorough in her job but so human in how she interacted with me. I felt like she truly understood what I was going through. I truly felt comforted by her. I looked forward to speaking with her and reviewing my progress (or lack thereof) I could tell Cat anything and I know on some days I did (maybe too much at times) Cat is a special member of the South Jersey Fertility team. She embraced me and me feel like I was the 'teacher's pet' of the facility. I'm sure that's just her way and she makes everyone feel just as special but her support, her kindness, her open-ness kept me motivated....kept me hopeful.
Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
The clinic (marlton especially) tends to get busy at times so it's best to leave yourself plenty of time when scheduling appointments. Double check billing invoices for accuracy (my invoices have been mostly accurate but mistakes can happen) Keep a journal of appointments and treatments so you can better participate in treatment plans and ask relevant questions Alyssa is the best receptionist (EHT) She always gives a warm and fuzzy vibe. The receptionists in Marlton are lot less outgoing In my experience, the staff in the EHT office interacts with patients on a more intimate/personal level. The Marlton office sometimes is too busy to develop that individual positive rapport.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center.
co pays, medications (ordered through Village pharmacy) genetic testing, sperm storage, egg freezing...i estimate that from 2017 to now, we have spent $40k out of pocket

How was your experience with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari was very knowledgeable, but also willing to explain and consider information I may have brought to him- uterine biopsies, for example, to test the implantation window, even though that test doesn't usually reveal a problem. He listened, offered his expertise, and devised a plan of action. He was always willing to reassure or console.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center?
Dr. Kuzbari felt like a partner on this journey. He knew our situation; he was enthusiastic and supportive throughout.

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at South Jersey Fertility Center.
There were morning "monitoring hours" that were standard each day, for specific procedures, like blood draws and ultrasounds. However, I also found that they were willing to try to accommodate alternative appointments when possible.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Oumar Kuzbari at South Jersey Fertility Center.
As a NJ schoolteacher, my insurance covered the majority of my costs. There were a few tests that were out of pocket, like the implantation biopsy, and the donor fee was also out of pocket.
