Dr. Mehta has a very warm bedside manner and was familiar with my case during our appointments. She also did all the sonograms so she seemed engaged. ... Overall, she was fine. However, after our third retrieval, she told us that she had no more options/suggestions for our treatments and suggested that we move on to donor eggs. It seemed like she was giving up on our case. ... She recommended transferring 1 embryo at a time.

She [Dr. Rinku Mehta] was easy to talk to and took her time answering our questions. We never felt rushed. She genuinely cared and was supportive, when we wanted one more child. She fully explained steps to us and I didn’t feellike just another one of her patients.... We had male factor, so if I remember right, nothing was adjusted or used in place of to try and get better results.
