[Dr. Paul Zarutskie is] Very knowledgeable and experienced doctor. He is willing to consider the parts of this process that have a lot of science behind it as well as some of the supportive therapies that may not be proven but have anecdotal support if you are interested. He is very thorough and considerate. He has a great bedside manner and listens to patient concerns.... Dr Z goes above and beyond to make things make sense and answer any questions we have. He has called me personally to update me at each step of the egg retrieval/fertilization so far. His nurses are always responsive to questions and have always felt comfortable running things by him.

They are always responsive, organized and friendly.
Describe your experience with Baylor / Texas Childrens.
I always prefer working with specialist that are affiliated with teaching hospitals like Baylor. I feel like because they aren't an independent clinic there isn't as much push to get higher numbers and there is a more personal approach. I also appreciate that it's on the rail line and convenient to get to from downtown.
