How was your experience with Paul Turek at The Turek Clinic?
At this point, we have only had a consultation for my husband's varicocele. Dr Turek is possibly one of the most intelligent people I have ever spoken to. His education, interest in male health and infertility and deep knowledge on this topic is so impressive. You can see the wheels turning in his mind, calculations, thought processes, etc as he speaks. Even though he can get very scientific, his explanations are easy to follow. He was timely and efficient during our consultation. We had a phone call because we live across the country and are in an area that does not have strong practices on male health and infertlity. I found Dr. Turek through the Fertile Minds Radio podcast and he will work with patients around the country. My husband was so relieved to talk to a doctor that was knowledgeable (more than that, he is a LEADER) in male factor infertility, explained the risks and benefits, and gave him (and us) confidence and hope for our situation. We COULD NOT have been more impressed with Dr. Turek and are planning to go to California for treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Paul Turek at The Turek Clinic?
Have talking points and questions ready. He will speak fast, but he is thorough and will answer all of your questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Paul Turek at The Turek Clinic?
Considerate and friendly when asking about our story and fertility history. He was understanding, explained his thoughts, processes and suggestions, and ended our consultation with "I want the baby picture! I want to be the doctor who helps you get that baby, send me the picture!" which I felt was very endearing and genuine.

Reasonable - in the realm of what we expect for Fertility treatment. We are pricing out a few other clinics, and Dr Turek's rates are comparable, if not lower than another one we have considered - and his track record and specialty in this area is much deeper.
