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.

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.
