I loved Dr. VanDeerlin. Super sweet and loves to help ease the stress by making you laugh. I did not see him super often because there are about 5 doctors at this practice who rotate locations. I guess if I would have requested to see him every visit, that could have happened...Prepare yourself to see and deal with all of his colleagues. I loved Dr. VanDeerlin and wished I would have solely got to deal with him only.
The nurses who return your call [at South Jersey Fertility Center] (you always have to leave a message for them)..have no compassion...Front desk operator and medical assistants are amazing! Office stays clean and I rarely ever had to wait. I mainly visited the Sewell office. I went to Marlton a few times and had a small wait but it was a Saturday ans they are th only office open that day so it was to be expected.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at South Jersey Fertility Center.
This is why I left SJ Fertility. The nurses who return your call (you always have to leave a message for them)..have no compassion. My first uneasy experience was when I needed a break from fertility meds, fertility costs, etc. I tried some cycles with Femara but once they resulted in negative pregnancy test, I needed time off. I am guessing I should have made the nurses aware? SJFert put me on a thyroid medication quite some time ago. It would always get refilled on its on. Well one day my pharmacy calls me and says I need to call my doc bc my prescription stopped. So I called them and she says “well we haven't heard from you in so long that you now need to get that through your primary doctor.” No problem at all, but please give me a call and tell me that is how you guys roll. So I went without that meds for weeks because of course I needed to make an appt with my primary, get the blookwork done and then my prescription would continue. The next and final straw was during my little break I was taking, I began bleeding. Sorry TMI. But I called SJ Fert and that same nurse returned my call and said AGAIN, “we havent seen you in so long so you’d need to call your OB.” If I skip visits with my primary doctor and give him a call, he NEVER reminds me that he hasnt seen me in so long and instantly redirects me. Like I felt like she kept blowing me off bc I was no longer spending $40 to walk in the office weekly (an hour drive by the way). So although the staff have a tremendous amount of compassion for your situation, the nurse who calls patients back could care less. Or maybe she just treated me that way, who knows.

The first IVF resulted in pregnancy, however, my progesterone was low. I wish he [Dr. Peter Van Deerlin] had been more aggressive about helping to get my progesterone levels higher. Along those lines, I felt that my protocol should have changed after my first cycle did not produce very many eggs despite a large number of follicles. He was pretty resistant to trying other protocols....The clinic [South Jersey Fertility Center] was beginning to become very large. I am sure had I continued treatment there I would not have been happy with how patients were beginning to be herded in and out to accommodate a number of people.

After the consultation he [Dr. Van Deerlin] called in progesterone to bring on my menses, scheduled blood work and an hsg procedure. The hsg came back with clear tubes, no blockages. He then put me on prometrium to bring on my cycle and I went in for an transvaginal US during my cycle to check for any cysts...timed intercourse...He’s personable and caring. He made me confident in his capabilities and I never doubted his treatment plan. I was able to go home and rest my head assured.
I honestly can’t think of one weakness [at South Jersey Fertility Center]. There’s too many strengths to list. For instance you’re never waiting very long until they call you back. This practice is professional, knowledgeable and empathetic to your individual situation and needs...Couldn’t have been more compassionate, patient or thorough...I was covered under my insurance plan. Most procedures and medications, if not all, were covered...
How was your experience with Peter Van Deerlin at South Jersey Fertility Center?

Describe the protocols Peter Van Deerlin used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
After the consultation he called in progesterone to bring on my menses, scheduled blood work and an hsg procedure. The hsg came back with clear tubes, no blockages. He then put me on prometrium to bring on my cycle and I went in for an transvaginal US during my cycle to check for any cysts. No sign of cysts so we proceeded with Letrozole 7.5mg a day for 5 days during my cycle. Followed by bloodwork and transvaginal ultrasounds twice a week to monitor the follicles. The week after my cycle was my fourth US appointment, I had two follicles 20mm+ Followed by the trigger shot with timed intercourse. I was having intercourse leading up to this appointment as well during the fertile window. Now we’re 2 weeks and 4 days after the trigger shot and we’re pregnant!
