Describe your experience with your nurse at Washington University School of Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Denise )
Denise is AMAZING!!!! She is so kind and friendly. Quick to respond to my emails, answer ANY questions, and met with me after a blood draw to talk and she gave me a sample to save me from driving to a specialty pharmacy. She knows her stuff! Denise even got me 1 inch needles for my PIO shot since my frame is so small, such a lifesaver!
Describe your experience with Washington University School of Medicine.
The clinic is wonderful. They have different doctors in the clinic. Every Tuesday the doctors meet to go over their cases, so you have several doctors reviewing your case! The waiting room is neat and clean. It isnt baby oriented, which is nice since that could be a trigger for some. You dont wait long at all, probably less than 10 min every time I had an appointment. My only complaint would be that there is only 1 receptionist to check patient ts in. So if several come in at once, it can get backed up easily. Even when you wait to sign in, the wait is short!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Patricia Jimenez at Washington University School of Medicine.
As of now, with 1 retrieval and 2 transfers down, I have paid a little over $400 for those procedures. Medication, I have spent MAYBE $500. We have decent insurance and I had met my deductible when we started this process. I have nothing g to complain about with the cost or being surprised with a bill.

Due to my age, we transferred 2 embryos in hopes that at least one would stick. She was very open to listening to our desires on transferring the 2 and not just 1.
