Brace yourself for honesty. He [Dr. Richard Scott] is a good doctor and will explain in a way you can understand as much as you want to know about your diagnosis and treatment, but he also won't sugarcoat. Ultimately, though, it was his brilliant mind and his resolve to stay on the cutting edge of the field that turned over that last stone that got me pregnant with 2 healthy girls,

How was your experience with Richard Scott at RMA of New Jersey?
He is absolutely brilliant, but I think at this point he would rather her focus on research and making strides in the field rather than working with individual patients. He was at some points dismissive of my concerns, which led him to overlook something major. In the end, I was right, and it cost us a failed FET with some very expensive embryos.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Richard Scott at RMA of New Jersey?
Dr. Scott was simultaneously candid but also very warm when I first consulted with him in 2014, and the desk often tried to schedule my procedures with him if possible. After I became pregnant and suffered a late-term loss, I returned to his care in 2015, and he had changed. He seemed disinterested in continuing to see patients and exasperated with my placing demands on his time for scheduled follow-up consultations.
Describe the protocols Richard Scott used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
We did high-stim ivf micro-flare protocols with human growth hormone. They were freeze-all cycles wherein we tested the embryos and followed with FETs of euploid blastocysts.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Adrienne Frankel)
Adrienne is the total package - meticulous, patient, compassionate. She is rooting for you. I honestly don't know how I would have survived this last leg of my ivf journey without her.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
It runs like a well-oiled machine. Sometimes getting a call-back from people other than my nurse proved frustrating, but in the grand scheme, they were highly efficient,
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at RMA of New Jersey.
Highly efficient
Describe the costs associated with your care under Richard Scott at RMA of New Jersey.
We were paying for the ivf procedures out-of-pocket but testing and consults were covered. We spent a lot of money there.

[Dr.] Richard Scott is incredibly knowledgeable, and always took to the time to explain everything to me. He clearly cares both about his patients and about their success...Just understand that he won't be the only person working with you. Your point person will be a nurse; and other doctors could be the ones performing the procedures. But he oversees your case completely, and knows what he's doing...he changed what was not working from my previous clinic, and was able to lead me to successful pregnancies twice.

Describe the protocols Richard Scott used in your cycles at RMA of New Jersey and their degree of success.
Honestly, it was years ago, and I've put it out of my mind. I can tell you that he changed what was not working from my previous clinic, and was able to lead me to successful pregnancies twice. He looks at the specifics of YOUR case. My meds and protocol won't be the same as yours, because we are different people will different issues, who react differently to different medications.
Describe your experience with your nurse at RMA of New Jersey. (Assigned nurse: Adrienne Kramer)
The nurse is your point person. Any question you have, she/he is available for you. My nurse was incredibly helpful during the processes, and having her available was invaluable.
Describe your experience with RMA of New Jersey.
They have one of the best labs in the country. For me, this was essential. I had plenty of eggs retrieved, but they were very poor quality, and the ability of the lab to cultivate them to day 5 was essential. RMANJ is very large, and this bothers some people. I had no trouble with it, especially with the help of my nurse coordinator. The doctors are all top notch, and I found every one of them (whether doing consultations, ultrasounds, retrievals, or transfers) to be compassionate and wonderful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Richard Scott at RMA of New Jersey.
Most of it was covered by insurance, but if I didn't have insurance it would have been around $20,000.
Describe Richard Scott's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at RMA of New Jersey.
Because of my low quality eggs, I only had 1 embryo to transfer my 1st round with Dr. Scott. My second round, I had 2 remaining, and as it was likely our last shot at it, we decided to transfer both. Dr. Scott was supportive. Only one survived, and I now have 2 beautiful sons.
