How was your experience with Ravi Gada at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
As stated before, Dr. Gada walked this path when he and his wife were trying to conceive. He made me feel validated and like every concern I’ve ever had since I was diagnosed at 16 was absolutely normal. Being 27 years old, skipping straight to IVF seems extreme to others but he truly does not want us wasting time, emotions, and financial resources on the typical fertility progressions, which was my biggest fear and in our initial consultation I said I did not want to do IVF, he quickly reassured me that he did not take years to turn to IVF, but months instead. Tears come to my eyes as I type this out, I’m so grateful for his mindset and guidance on this journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ravi Gada at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Go in with an open mind and don’t try to cling to what google tells you. He will take each case individually and adjust timelines to your diagnosis, severity, and finances.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ravi Gada at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates?
Dr. Gada has an incredible bed wide manner regarding to fertility because he and his wife too have walked this long, emotional journey. When we first met and did the initial exam he told us, politely and professionally that he would consider my PCOS diagnosis on the severe end, and that we needed to stay strong. He was right on the money, with an AMH level of 27, our only route is going to be IVF. This was devastating news even though it was expected and he answered any and ALL questions that we had and still have.
Describe the protocols Ravi Gada used in your cycles at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates and their degree of success.
Personally I can’t answer this fully because my husband and I are in the savings stage for IVF. We have done two rounds of clomid with ovidrel injections. We did not HAVE to do these, but we felt we should try something in the mean time while savings the 17,000 needed to start IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
If you’ve been through this journey you know that it comes with a lot of tears and the territory of uncontrollable sobbing. Not only have I cried just because the news never gets easier but the phone call letting me know what my AMH level is lasted 45 minutes. Five minutes of her letting me know, 40 minutes of me losing it because I simply do not have 17,000, and I don’t have family that can get us there. She reassured me, validated me, and straight up just listened.
Describe your experience with Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
I have no complaints about the clinic. The wait time in the lobby is always minimal, the office and clinic are clean, it’s a calm environment, and they are so loving. Other than getting an appointment takes a while, but that’s because the doctors are that amazing. I was afraid the office would feel uncomfortable and cold. It’s a very warm and inviting clinic despite the circumstances.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ravi Gada at Dallas-Fort Worth Fertility Associates.
As you probably know, fertility is expensive and insurance is null and void. The clinic staff works very hard to try and find every workaround to get things charged through insurance. If you can’t pay everything, they will work it out with you. They know that you are in the office under stressful circumstances and try to do their best to help you in every way.
