Because he [Dr. Sacks] always took the time to talk, and worked within my natural cycle instead of pumping me full of hormones so I could be on his schedule... He clearly knows his stuff, and is confident in his work. We trusted him. The only thing is that he talks a whole lot!
I only had to wait once or twice. VERY efficient... I thought she [our nurse] was cold and disinterested. Other nurses were fantastic... he [Dr. Sacks] always took the time to talk, and worked within my natural cycle instead of pumping me full of hormones so I could be on his schedule.

I believe that Dr. Sacks applies treatment strategies and protocols on an individualized basis...With me, he measured my AMH for several years and kept track of my fertility. When I felt ready to start treatments he presented various options to me (IUI, IUI with chlomid, IVF) and which were better suited to me. I followed his advice completely and became pregnant quickly...is an incredible, warm, kind and knowledgeable physician. Throughout the many years that he has been my doctor he has always treated me with respect and compassion. He has a positive attitude and a realistic outlook. He always takes the time to explain any procedures, possible outcomes and risks. I feel very fortunate to be under his care. I can tell that his staff like him and rely on his expertise as well. As a result of his treatment, I became pregnant.
The clinic [Columbia Fertility Associates] is very well located, center of DC and clean. The staff is very professional and accommodating for appointments. I found the nursing staff to be knowledgeable and quick to respond to emails and questions...I had an excellent experience as a patient of Doctor Sacks. He is kind and knowledgeable and caring. He always takes the time necessary to address any concerns and possible outcomes. I have always felt very informed and heard. My impression is that his experience is not simply limited to infertility issues, but general health and well-being of his patients. He really cares, there is no doubt.

Describe the protocols Preston Sacks used in your cycles at Columbia Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
I believe that Dr. Sacks applies treatment strategies and protocols on an individualized basis. I feel this way because I know several women who have been treated by him, each with different needs and constitutions, and each were treated according to those needs. With me, he measured my AMH for several years and kept track of my fertility. When I felt ready to start treatments he presented various options to me (IUI, IUI with chlomid, IVF) and which were better suited to me. I followed his advice completely and became pregnant quickly.
