We only retrieved 3 eggs. We did a day 3 transfer of two embryos but were unsuccessful. Dr Yazigi recommended a slightly higher stim protocol which ultimately was converted to an IUI. He then recommended a protocol with lupron. I did not respond at all and was cancelled the cycle. He then recommended donor eggs...a very practical physician. I would describe his bedside manner as neutral. He isn’t unkind but also isn’t particularly warm.

How was your experience with Ricardo Yazigi at Shady Grove Fertility?
I would recommend Dr. Yazigi for someone with more common infertility diagnoses. For anything that requires more individualization of care, I’d suggest seeing a different doctor. In my opinion, Dr Yazigi was too quick to recommend donor eggs.

Describe the protocols Ricardo Yazigi used in your cycles at Shady Grove Fertility and their degree of success.
At first my dx was unexplained infertility. He recommend 3 clomid IUIs. When none was successful, he mov d quickly to IVF on their standard “high responder” protocol. We only retrieved 3 eggs. We did a day 3 transfer of two embryos but were unsuccessful. Dr Yazigi recommended a slightly higher stim protocol which ultimately was converted to an IUI. He then recommended a protocol with lupron. I did not respond at all and was cancelled the cycle. He then recommended donor eggs.

Strengths: Very organized and efficient Weaknesses: Not much individualization of care If you’re in the Baltimore/Towson area, you can’t beat the convenience. The Towson office was close to home and the Harbor East office was close to work.
