Dr.Brezina explained everything to you and made sure that you understood it before leaving his office. He also made you feel like he could relate to your situation by saying things like if my wife and I were in this situation we would do the same thing.... He started our treatments with blood work, ultrasounds, and a semen analysis. I was not having regular cycles at this time. Then when everything was okay with those tests other than a diagnosis of PCOS, we moved on to an SHG and HSG to make sure that my tubes were open.
The staff [Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] at the front desk are all extremely nice. When you call to setup an appointment or ask questions, they are very helpful. They make sure to tell you up front how much things will cost and what/if your insurance will cover. The office space is very neat,clean, and organized.... Most of the nursing staff are nice, compassionate, and friendly. There are 1-2 that aren’t as friendly or pretty quiet but that is going to be anywhere you go.

Then when everything was okay with those tests other than a diagnosis of PCOS, we moved on to an SHG and HSG to make sure that my tubes were open. My HSG showed a blocked tube so then we scheduled a laproscopy which showed I had endometriosis blocking my tube that he burned off during surgery and we took a 6 month period of trying timed intercourse because he thought that I should be able to get pregnant on my own after my tube was unblocked. After 6 months and I still wasn’t pregnant, we discussed trying an ovulation induction IUI cycle. We tried the highest dosage of Letrozole/Femara 7.5 mg and after 5-6 ultrasounds, it was determined that my follicles wouldn’t get big enough to do a trigger shot and make me ovulate so the cycle was cancelled. We had a follow-up appointment where we discussed the next steps would likely be IVF but since I had lost twenty pounds and my cycles had started coming back on their own to try for 6 months before considering IVF. We have a couple months before we go back, but so far no positive pregnancy tests yet.

Dr. Brezina is so very kind. ... I feel like he actually cares about us as patients and as normal human beings. ... I came to Dr. Brezina for a second opinion on surgery. He had me do all bloodwork, shg, and a hsg. I indeed had PCOS. He had my husband give a sperm sample, and we found out his numbers were low (400,000). He referred us to an urologist.
Just like most doctor’s offices, the wait time [at Kutteh Ke Fert Assoc] is a little long. We get called back immediately, but we are sometimes waiting for the doctor for 30-45 minutes. ... We have been given estimates for IVF without insurance. The treatment is $10,126. The transfer is $1,400. Medication is estimated $3500-$5000.

He had my husband give a sperm sample, and we found out his numbers were low (400,000). He referred us to an urologist. Dr. Brezina prescribed my husband with 25mg of Clomid 5x a week for 3 months. We came back for a follow up and the numbers improved to 1.9 million. Motility and morphology were also not great. With our urologist, we had the option do have a varicolecetomy to try and raise numbers up. We consulted with Dr. Brezina who made it clear it was our choice what we wanted to do. We talked all the details about IUI (if the surgery worked) or moving straight to IVF. He told us to come back in a week and we could talk more or make a decision. We came back and made the decision to start IVF. Dr. Brezina was very helpful in making a very tough decision! We will be starting in March 2019.

Dr. Brezina is very thorough with his patients. He never made me feel rushed or made me feel ridiculous asking questions (and I had a lot of them). He drew pictures and showed me concrete numbers to help my husband and I make difficult decisions. Also, he provided me with every possible option and explained each one so I would understand the risks and benefits of each. Dr. Brezina would laugh and smile with me during our joyous times, and provide empathy during the difficult times in our journey.

We added claritin and pepcid a few days before the transfer.

We then did an IVF (ICSI) [with Dr. Paul Brezina], and we opted to do a frozen cycle, because this would allow for higher doses of hormones in an effort to get more embryos to freeze (this decision was based off the fact that we had fewer eggs than expected retrieved during the first IVF cycle). They had expected to retrieve 15-20 eggs, but we ended up only with 9. We had 5 that fertilized, and only 2 that matured to 5-day embryos and were frozen. Dr. Brezina strongly advises using 5-day embryos, and we agree with his rationale for a variety of reasons.
We have had mixed experiences with Dr. Brezina's nursing staff [at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates]. Some have been organized, kind, and competent, and others have been quite the opposite. We caught a number of errors in several of the nurses' instructions to us (e.g., doses, protocols for administration of medications, when to schedule visits, etc), which resulted in fracturing of our trust in the overall nursing staff. However, I will say that, when we shared these experiences with Dr. Brezina, he was incredibly receptive to constructive feedback and he took it very seriously. Our comments were discussed with all of the physicians and nurses in the clinic, with policies implemented in an effort to improve the system. So I give Dr. Brezina a lot of credit for his proactive efforts to identify issues and improve the overall care provided by the practice.
How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
In my prior response, I have already shared details with regards to our high estimation of Dr. Brezina as an outstanding communicator. We have faced a number of sad situations, including the loss of one of our babies, and Dr. Brezina has always responded with deep and genuine empathy and presence. I think it is also important to share how much we respect and admire Dr. Brezina's fund of knowledge and his clinical acumen. Since I and my husband are both physicians, we have high expectations for the physicians in whom we entrust our medical care. Dr. Brezina trained at Johns Hopkins, and his knowledge and clinical judgment are outstanding. He never appears to be following an algorithm by rote; rather, he takes the time to familiarize himself with the details of each case, thinks outside of the box, and is willing to share his honest reflections and recommendations with you. He has mastered the art of active listening, and he remains self-confident while also humble and open about what he knows and what he does not know. I could not admire Dr. Brezina more; he is the best physician with whom I have ever entrusted my own medical care, and one of the best physicians whom I have ever known.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Trust him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Brezina is an extraordinary physician, and an even better person. He has treated my husband and myself as if we were his family. He makes us feel like he cares genuinely about us, and he spends as much time as we need to help us understand and process difficult information and make difficult decisions. He personally calls us to explain complicated test results, and he has corresponded with us over email to ensure optimal transfer of information. We had a very complicated situation with our last cycle, in which we transferred our last remaining embryo, and it actually split on its own and we had identical twins implant. We were ecstatic, but then I had an intrauterine hemorrhage and one of the twins died, and we were devastated. Dr. Brezina suffered along with us, and his compassion and bedside manner were outstanding. In the spirit of full disclosure, my husband and I are both physicians, and I do research in the field of physician-patient communication - so for us, communication is a very important aspect of medical care. Dr. Brezina has exceeded our expectations in this area, and for this we are very grateful to him.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I am embarrassed that I know few details; I made an intentional choice to remove myself from these details, because I worried that I would try to micromanage my own medical care in the context of my medical degree, while having zero actual expertise in RI. But this is what I remember. We had a failed IVF with a prior doctor, which was a truly horrific experience. When we switched to Dr. Brezina, we decided to start with an IUI. However, when my husband gave the sperm sample right before the procedure, we learned that his sperm had no motility, which was attributed to cross-linking of the tails secondary to an anti-sperm antibody (based on gross microscopy assessment). We went ahead and did the IUI procedure anyway, since we had already paid for it and I had already done the whole hormonal prep - but it was a failure, unsurprisingly. We then did an IVF (ICSI), and we opted to do a frozen cycle, because this would allow for higher doses of hormones in an effort to get more embryos to freeze (this decision was based off the fact that we had fewer eggs than expected retrieved during the first IVF cycle). They had expected to retrieve 15-20 eggs, but we ended up only with 9. We had 5 that fertilized, and only 2 that matured to 5-day embryos and were frozen. Dr. Brezina strongly advises using 5-day embryos, and we agree with his rationale for a variety of reasons. The first frozen transfer resulted in a chemical miscarriage. The second frozen transfer ended up splitting into 2 embryos (seriously, what are the odds?! Actually, I know that the odds are <<1%...it was an extremely rare event). I had an intrauterine hemorrhage at around 6 weeks, and we lost 1 of the twins, which was heartbreaking. But we were so blessed with the birth of our daughter in 2016, after years of trying to conceive. We are now hoping to do another IVF cycle next month. Unfortunately, my repeat labs show decreasing ovarian reserve, so there is urgency to proceed with this cycle, as well as poorer odds of success projected...but we are still trying to be hopeful. We are planning to do another frozen cycle, followed by transfer.

Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I think the clinic itself is lovely, in terms of its aesthetics. It runs relatively smoothly, and we rarely wait for long periods of time. The layout is convenient, so that you can easily go from clinic room to US room to labs, which are all close together in the same space. The front desk staff are hit or miss - some are terrific, and some come across as disorganized and disengaged.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
This is a painful topic...I have tried to block it out. When we did our first IVF cycle, although it was a horrible experience, it was largely paid for by insurance because we lived in a state in which IVF was mandated for coverage. In our current state, however, IVF is not covered at all by insurance. So we have done IUI, a frozen IVF cycle (retrieval), ICSI x5 embryos, storing 2 embryos, and 2 frozen transfers, all out of pocket. I honestly don't know exactly how much that all cost...probably $25,000. Possibly more. And are about to do it all again, which is a huge financial burden that we cannot afford, since we have a total of ~$500,000 in student loans between my and my husband's medical training. Thankfully, my parents are so kind and are helping us, otherwise it wouldn't be possible.
Describe Paul Brezina's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
Dr. Brezina is supportive of single or double embryo transfer, but he recommends eSET. I am a pediatrician, and I have years of experience caring for preterm infants in the NICU, which has significantly informed my preference for eSET. As much as I would so so love to have twins, I do not think I could live with a decision that increases the risk of premature delivery and its associated morbidity and mortality risks.

Anything that has gone wrong in this clinic has been directly related to a nursing issue. For example, we have had nurses tell us the wrong dose of medication to administer. We have had nurses fail to show us how to properly administer an injection, leading to incorrect injection placement (and, in one case, IM as opposed to SQ, which was highly problematic and almost led to cancellation of a cycle). We have had nurses refuse to contact the on-call MD to ask a question, instead attempting to answer it themselves (and getting it wrong). All that said, those events happened a few years ago, and we discussed them in detail with Dr. Brezina and he took our feedback very seriously. We were told that the clinic had a meeting to discuss all of the issues that we identified, and that steps were taken to improve nursing training and the overall system. Since then, we have had better experiences, although we still do not think that the nurses are consistently excellent - some are terrific, and others less so. However, we also acknowledge that our standards are probably higher than average - we expect consistency in error-free care, and we are quick to identify mistakes because of our medical backgrounds. I think it says a lot about a practice when people are willing to receive constructive feedback and try to improve the system.

He [Dr. Brezina] is an amazing doctor. He has a good bedside manner and is very knowledgeable. He was very honest about options and potential outcomes. He was patient and answered all of my questions. He is very thorough. At one point he was concerned I could have ovarian cancer, he immediately repeated an ultrasound in office and referred me to a gynecologic oncologist for work up. He called the physician’s office himself while I was still in office to set up my appointment.
You are in excellent hands from the clinical staff to the doctor. They [Kutteh Ke Fertility] genuinely care about you and will do everything they can to help you.... The only weakness I can think of is not notifying me of my copay prior to my apppintment for my first consultation. However I was scheduled last minute due to a cancellation so this could be why I was not notified. This is an excellent clinic. From check in to check out they have it all together! I couldn’t have asked for better care.

Dr. Brezina was amazing he helped calm our nerves immediately. He shared that he also went through IVF with his wife and showed that he knew the road we were on. He explained everything in ways we understood and was happy to answer. All of our questions. He asked multiple times if we had any questions during our initial visit and made sure that we understood the things we were told.... was very supportive of our case and very enthusiastic about our chances.
The clinic [Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] is very clean and organized. The clinic was very quiet and peaceful. The only complaint we had about going to the clinic is that we were not informed at the time we booked the visit that the fee of the consult would be $300 expected to be paid before the visit. This was not a problem for us but for many families I feel this is something that you should know ahead of time.... The nursing staff was so friendly and compassionate.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
The only problem we had was not being informed of the $300 charge for the initial visit. This was not a problem for us but for many families it would be. This is something that should be shared with the patients as soon as they are booked for the appointment. We drove two hours to get to the clinic and would have been very upset had we not been able to be seen due to this.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Our first cycle [with Dr. Paul Brezina] we planned to do IUI but the transfer date fell on thanksgiving and the office was closed so we timed intercourse and fell pregnant—i had unusual bleeding and he followed me very closely until it was discovered to be an ectopic pregnancy. He gave us the option of taking methotrexate or having the tube removed—explaining the pros and cons of each. We elected to remove the tube. We tried IUI again a few months later which was unsuccessful and we make the desicion to move onto IVF; assuming that our best tube was the one that had been removed.
The staff [at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] is very knowledgeable even the sonographers can answer any of my questions which is helpful because I see them more than I see the nurses due to frequent ultrasounds... There is typically a short wait time, the waiting room is clean and the front staff courteous and helpful. It is very organized—the lab, nurses, sonographers, front desk, and MDS all seem to communicate and work together well getting pts seen
How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
He is very smart but is able to explain things in such a way that my husband and I can understand these intricate processes taking place. He doesn’t keep us waiting during appts and is methodical in his process of planning our course of treatment
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Be honest, if you don’t understand something ask him to repeat it or explain it in another way
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Our doctor often calls us personally to explain things and if he doesn’t feel he can adequately explain over the phone he will have us come in free of charge to make sure my husband and I understand what our plan of care is

We tried IUI again a few months later which was unsuccessful and we make the desicion to move onto IVF; assuming that our best tube was the one that had been removed. We worked through the routine protocol for IVF which yielded 12 follicles/6 eggs/3 five day blasts. We froze those to let my body recover prior to transferring them. He also told us he typically sees a slightly higher success rate with FET vs fresh. We elected to transfer one embryo (to avoid the risks associated with multiples). That cycle failed and our next cycle he added Lupron and changes from oral estrogen to vaginally estrogen, telling us that it is typically absorbed better vaginally also Lupron was to keep me even more suppressed than I had been to eliminate that variable. Everything looked “perfect” the week before transfer but I contracted C-diff and we decided to cancel the cycle rather than risk my embryos. We are currently waiting to start another cycle but our plan is to repeat the protocol from our previous canceled cycle

Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
It is very efficient. They have some women getting lab work while others are getting ultrasounds to keep people moving and get us out quickly
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
Egg retrieval was about $15000 including ultrasounds and lab work. Meds were about $5000
Describe Paul Brezina's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
He advised us to only transfer 1 embryo our first cycle as there are several risk factors for mom and babies with muptiples. Our last two embryos were of average quality and we were advised to transfer them both together to increase our odds

He [Dr. Brezina] is fair but thorough, and does not give you false hope. If something doesn't work the first time, he moves on to the next best option in order to get the results you want...He is fair, but he doesn't sugarcoat things. He is honest and wants to ultimately make there that you thoroughly understand everything going on with your treatment...fter years of depression and sadness from infertility, I feel like I am finally on my way to getting some answers and possibly adding to my family. I wouldn't use any other doctor.
They [Fert Assoc of Memphis]... are popular and very good at what they do... they do return phone calls in a timely manner, even after hour phone calls on the weekend if you have an emergency. No question is too dumb for any of the staff, I really love their supportive manner...During my IUI cycle, Dawn could not have been more compassionate and encouraging or hopeful. She also made sure to go over specific numbers or values and what they mean in relation to your reproductive health as well as your partner's reproductive health...
How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?

He is fair but thorough, and does not give you false hope. If something doesn't work the first time, he moves on to the next best option in order to get the results you want. Because my IUI failed, we will be pursuing IVF as it is unlikely that IUI will ever be successful because of endometriosis/unexplained infertility.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Because of unexplained infertility and suspected and endometriosis, first we proceed with caution, but with a sense of reality because we knew that there were other underlying an unknown causes accompanying the infertility. If the IUI did not work, we thoroughly discussed other options which included birth-control leading up to IVF and possible removal of endometriomas if indicated after three months of birth control. I am so glad that there is a specific plan lined up for me, he seems to be a great ally in getting the results that you want.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates. (Assigned nurse: Dawn)
During my IUI cycle, Dawn could not have been more compassionate and encouraging or hopeful. She also made sure to go over specific numbers or values and what they mean in relation to your reproductive health as well as your partner's reproductive health. That really helps me to understand a large part of this process and have a calmer head on my shoulders.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
My IUI cycle was about $600, but now because we know IUI will be unsuccessful and we are pursuing IVF, there is no telling how much that will cost, and I do not want to be hit with sticker shock.

While I didn’t see Dr Brezina very often (because he took over from another doctor who went out on leave), he was a great doctor. He was warm and caring and always answered my questions. He’s exactly what you would want in a fertility doctor-caring, competent and dedicated to helping you have a baby.... We tried for three cycles with just drugs and got no results. I was ovulating (a big part of the challenge with my PCOS) but I had what was called “unexplained infertility”. Dr Brezina explained that we could go on with more drug-only cycles but if it hadn’t worked in three cycles, the odds just decreased from there.
Fertility Associates of Memphis is a busy clinic but I never felt like a number. They treated me and my spouse as the individuals we are. Even when I was tired of going in or not looking forward to a test, I enjoyed going there. We were there to be successful and the gajillions of baby pictures prove that.... The cost for the IUI was between $500-$700 including the initial ultrasound, the trigger shot, processing of the sperm and the IUI itself.

Dr. Brezina was so nice. I felt like I was family. He never rushed me through anything, he always made sure we understood everything that was going to be happening and went over it in detail. He was kind and understanding to any of my concerns and even once when I mentioned adoption he told me to go home and pray about it before we started our journey. It was very comforting to know he would support us whichever road we choose. He also personally called to check on me during my treatments, which I did not expect.
Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I did IVF. I used menopur (75 units) in the morning follistim 225 units at night. I later added ganirellix. I triggered with pregnyl and lupron. We never changed any of my protocol, they said I was exactly where I was expected to be. I took a total of 26 shots, not too bad! I produced only half the amount of eggs (like 10ish) of a person my age should (I am 27) so he tried to be aggressive with the treatment and get as many eggs as possible. They were very happy with my results as they far exceeded what they thought. They retrieved 9 eggs and I have 4 embryos that wre frozen right now. My embryos are all a grade except 1 is b. I was very pleased with my results, I am just now awaiting my FET cycle to start where I will take estradiol and crinone

You had to go in for monitoring appointments at the beginning of each morning, at 730. I live 2 hours away so this was sometimes inconvenient but the clinic was great about it. They didn't rush you through, you were saw within a timely manner and if you wanted to take a little longer during your ultrasound and ask questions then you definitely could. I would recommend this clinic and its abilities to anyone.

Dr. Brezina is very compassionate but also honest...He shares his own fertility struggles and that commonality gave me peace. He took the time to answer all our questions. The only “weakness” that I would say is that I wish I would have had some more detailed explanations along the way (meaning during my treatment)...We did use the agonist cycle...I only had 2 embryos available to transfer. However, we had agreed that even if I had more embryos we were not transferring more than 2.
I really liked that the doctors work together to consult one another [at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates]. In particular, they met together to review my failed IVF and “brainstorm” what went wrong and what to do again. I do wish that this was done before my treatment but I think I only feel that way because we had a failed cycle...The nurses could be harsh at times and borderline unprofessional. However, I know that they have replaced the nurse that was working there.

The nurses could be harsh at times and borderline unprofessional. However, I know that they have replaced the nurse that was working there.
Describe your experience with Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I really liked that the doctors work together to consult one another. In particular, they met together to review my failed IVF and “brainstorm” what went wrong and what to do again. I do wish that this was done before my treatment but I think I only feel that way because we had a failed cycle.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
It was very crowded first thing in the morning. I usually arrived around 7 to be in the front of the line and make it to work on time. They moved rather quickly considering the number of people.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
The total cost was around $22,000. I completed another cycle with a different office (many of the same drugs). The cost of medications between offices was a difference of $5000 because the other clinic chose to use a speciality pharmacy and had rebates/coupons.
Describe Paul Brezina's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates.
I only had 2 embryos available to transfer. However, we had agreed that even if I had more embryos we were not transferring more than 2.

He [Dr. Paul Brezina] explained until we understood and were comfortable, called to follow up after procedures and check up on us, and maintained a personal and approachable relationship from day 1...I can not say enough good things... He’s super smart and has a full understanding of everything on the medical side but he also knows what it’s like on the personal so he understands the emotions, the heartache, the breakdowns in a way that can’t be taught from a book. He gets it and it’s obvious.
I would love to list a weakness or two [about Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] because I think those can be more helpful than positives and and a weakness or two doesn’t mean a place is bad overall but I personally can’t think of anything.

How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
I can not say enough good things about Dr. Brezina. We have recommended him to 4 different friends who were seeing other doctors that they weren’t happy with and each and everyone of them has gone to him and come away with the same feelings as us. He’s super smart and has a full understanding of everything on the medical side but he also knows what it’s like on the personal so he understands the emotions, the heartache, the breakdowns in a way that can’t be taught from a book. He gets it and it’s obvious.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Go. Go see. Go talk to him and I promise you’ll leave better informed than you were. You’ll know you’ve been heard by someone that cares and that will do everything within their capabilities to help you and you’ll know you’re not alone.

He [Dr. Paul Brezina] spends so much time with you at each visit. Explains everything with so many statistics and is very impressive overall. He and his wife have 2 children via IVF as well. He is compassionate and smart which is important to me with such an emotional process.... He has a wonderful caring bedside manner and is also very intelligent and well read on infertility and new studies
[Kutteh Ke Fertility Assoc] Weakness in communication of cost; office manager previously lacked bedside manner but this appears to be better now. Cost in general is just not consistently discussed. Or at least it wasn’t several years ago. So far, we have had no issues since we started back so may be improved now... I think $14k total for IVF; it was closer to $20k with PGS

Describe the protocols Paul Brezina used in your cycles at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
We tried clomid and femara with IUIs. I had no response with femara and had to cancel that cycle. With IVF the first time, I did Follistim and Ganirelix. Hyper stimulated so froze the embryos and did 3 FETs total. My first resulted in an unexplained missed miscarriage of twins, boy and girl, both chromosomally normal. 2nd resulted in my daughter and a twin lost at 8 weeks. 3rd resulted in a chemical. We went through egg retrieval again, did PGS, and transferred one and I miscarried at 9 weeks.

He [Dr. Brezina] is very friendly and really wants to help. He fully explains all the options and makes sure you understand fully before you leave. He suggests what he thinks is best but also makes sure you know that its your choice. After each of my IUI attempts he called wishing me luck ... First cycle of IUI was with no medicine except for a shot to induce ovulation. We started with this because based on the test I should have had no reason to need meds. Second cycle we did clomid and the shot to induce ovaulation. Third cycle increased clomid and shot to induce ovulation.
They [Ketteh Ke Fertility Assoc] are all very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. Sometimes waiting to see the actual doctor Can be long and sometimes waits for appointments Can be long. They always call you back same day if you call with a question or concern ... My primary nurse Katie gave me a free ovulation shot one round as it was about to expire to try to save me some money

Dr. Brezina treated me like a human. He had a very good bedside manner. Never acted like he was better than me. He treated me great and would recommend him to anyone.... I think Dr. Brezinas strengths were explaining everything in very good detail. He always went over everything step for step. He was always happy and treated me very well. I don’t think I have ever seen him a bad mood.... I think he did everything by the book. We started on meds to make me have a cycle.
The staff [Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates] are all very friendly and so helpfully. The are always so nice and very accommodating. There have been times when I have had to cancel appointments last minute and they were very nice about it. The only weakness I can think of is being put on hold for a longer than normal amount of time.... Katie was a very sweet woman. She called to check on me after IUI cycles also. Just like Dr. Brezina.

How was your experience with Paul Brezina at Kutteh Ke Fertility Associates?
Dr. Brezina is such a great doctor. This process is quite lengthy, as we are trying to find a lab to build a probe for our specific genetic disorder and PGS testing. He calls frequently with updates and provide several options to be as cost effective as possible. The only time I have ever been frustrated with him is when he pushed our appointment back until the end of the day, not knowing that I had to leave at a certain time. He recognized that I felt pressed for time, apologized for not informing me, and scheduled another appointment right away and did not charge another copay. He let me vent and was incredibly empathic. We have been seeing him for so long, he feels like a friend! We trust him completely as we move into the IVF process.
