Dr. Raj has always made me feel like a human from explaining everything to me to being there for me when I was a mess of tears...also made me realize that it wasn’t the end of the road for us yet and that made a world of difference to me...We started out with using clomid for one cycle and then using a trigger shot before our iui. Then we did femara for one cycle with the trigger and iui and then did one last iui with clomid again and the trigger. We chose to try the iui before going on to egg donor just to see if it would result in a pregnancy but unfortunately no pregnancy resulted in any of the iuis
When we decided to do iui [at IVFMD Arlington] each ultrasound was around $160 and we needed at least two per cycle. The trigger Injection was about $75 then the sperm wash and iui procedure were another $100 or so...I don’t think the clinic has any weakness’ at least not that I’ve seen. Their strengths are definitely that they are well organized and compassionate with their patients. They even allow you to make payments if you don’t have the full amount for procedures because they understand how costly it is
How was your experience with Renju Raj at IVFMD?
Dr. Raj always explained everything to me in a way that I could understand. He always made sure that I felt comfortable with the procedure or the next steps and even comforted me when I was crying and upset to know that I had diminished ovarian reserve. But also made me realize that it wasn’t the end of the road for us yet and that made a world of difference to me
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Renju Raj at IVFMD?
Listen to everything he has to say and be honest if you don’t understand or want to do something he’s a great listener and wants you to be on board

Describe the costs associated with your care under Renju Raj at IVFMD.
The consult I believe was like $120. When we decided to do iui each ultrasound was around $160 and we needed at least two per cycle. The trigger Injection was about $75 then the sperm wash and iui procedure were another $100 or so. So times all those by the 3 times we did it and it got pretty expensive for us. Not including the lab work that had to be done and that was another $300 or so

Dr. Raj was so caring and attentive. He took his time with me and completed every test needed up front in order to increase the chances of a successful first cycle...is very friendly yet direct, patient and caring. He was attentive to my needs and answered all my questions with honesty and detail. He set up a clear treatment plan for me...determined I had hypothyroidism as well, and after initial consult, we decided an IUI with trigger shot and femara would work best. We also did an HSG to check for tubal blockage and although there was no blockage seen, I believe this helped. This treatment protocol helped us concieve on our first cycle.
The prices are listed on the website [for IVFMD]...The clinic is very warm and inviting and in a convenient location. Patients are greeted warmly by staff and the wait was never long for me. Scheduling is convenient and there are two locations to help cover rare situations if needed...The clinic is beautiful and welcoming... insurance paid for most of my treatment. Without insurance, I believe the total cost would have been around $750

Describe the protocols Renju Raj used in your cycles at IVFMD and their degree of success.
I have a history of annovulation and long cycles. Dr. Raj did bloodwork and determined I had hypothyroidism as well, and after initial consult, we decided an IUI with trigger shot and femara would work best. We also did an HSG to check for tubal blockage and although there was no blockage seen, I believe this helped. This treatment protocol helped us concieve on our first cycle.
