How was your experience with Rinku Mehta at Dallas IVF?
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 was also moving to another clinic, so maybe she was cleaning house.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rinku Mehta at Dallas IVF?
As with all doctors, advocate for yourself.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rinku Mehta at Dallas IVF?
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.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Strengths: Compassion. Same day responses to voicemails. Weaknesses: Very rushed because they had a lot of patients scheduled. Multiple attempts were often needed to draw blood. A couple times, prescriptions were not sent to the pharmacy.
Describe your experience with Dallas IVF.
Overall, the clinic is fine and the staff are nice. Weaknesses: The staff are sometimes disorganized. The surgery center had the wrong retrieval info one time. It took a few visits to get my patient records because they kept forgetting to include all the info. The billing coordinator (Mary) takes a long time to respond to queries/refunds.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rinku Mehta at Dallas IVF.
We didn't have insurance coverage for infertility. Total cost for 3 medicated IUIs was about $3,000. Each IVF retrieval was about $16,000.

How was your experience with Rinku Mehta at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth?
I felt very safe and comfortable with Dr Mehta because she really thought about me and my issues, not what “should” work for most people. She tailored my treatment to me, and never guessed at anything. Once she couldn’t see well on an ultrasound and moved me to the room with a better machine so she could get a clear picture. She did my egg retrieval on a Saturday, and went to run a 5k with her family afterwards. when I didn’t feel well after the egg retrieval, she came right back just to check on me herself. When she did my polyp removal surgery, she made sure I had copies of the pictures and results. And when I had an ovarian cyst burst while she was on vacation, I saw another doctor in her clinic for a sono, but Dr Mehta called me at home herself to check on me and wanted me to call her and come see her if I didn’t feel better in a day or two. She is a perfectionist when it comes to her patients’ care, and I love that she did all my sonos and tests so she knew exactly what was going on with me.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Rinku Mehta at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth?
Don’t take her being direct sometimes as her being insensitive. She cares, but she is always thinking about what is best for you, and when she is thinking a mile a minute, she can seem distracted.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Rinku Mehta at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth?
Dr. Mehta always did all my procedures and she remembered me. She was always on time and quick. She even remembered my latex allergy when the nurses forgot.
Describe the protocols Rinku Mehta used in your cycles at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth and their degree of success.
I have DOR due to stage IV endometriosis and scar tissue from surgery on my ovaries (which are also attached to my other organs with scar tissue). I had a failed cycle with another doctor doing standard BCP priming and lupron with max doses of menopur and gonel-f. BCP and Lupron likely over-suppressed my ovaries, so I had no follicles develop. Mehta did a more natural cycle with some estrogen priming and no lupron, adding ganerelix to suppress the last few days. I was still on the max dose of gonal-f and menopur. My cycle was longer as my follicles develop slowly. Maybe 17 days between starting injections and retrieval, but Mehta gave me plenty of time and was confident the follicles would grow. And it worked! 9 mature eggs. And Dr. Mehta has a new plan to hopefully make the next attempt more successful by improving egg quality. I also took some supplements she recommended for egg health:. CoQ10, DHEA, vit C. Her transfer protocol worked as well— my lining was 16mm, and I took estrogen, baby aspirin, doxycycline, and a steroid as well as injections of progesterone. Her transfer technique seemed very good— I had no pain and no placental issues.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Overall very good, but I did see one nurse who seemed stressed and overwhelmed so she came off insensitive. She wasn’t usually the nurse I saw.
Describe your experience with CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth.
The clinic Frisco Institute of Reproductive Medicine in Frisco has been bought by CCRM and I’ve heard they have changed many things since my treatments. Dr Mehta is no longer there (she is with Dallas IVF now) because the changes didn’t fit with her doctoring style. I can’t speak to the state of the clinic after the changes around oct-dec 2018. I had one appointment during the transition, and from that get the sense that patients may feel more like numbers rather than people after the change-over, and can’t guess how this will effect the quality of the embryo lab or the type of attention patients will receive.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rinku Mehta at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth.
I can’t remember... 10-12k for IVF with ICSI plus meds, maybe?

Describe your experience with your nurse at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth.
The nursing staff is wonderful at FIRM! They are organized, caring, and efficient. What I really love about the FIRM staff is you are never sent to a voicemail during business hours. You are always able to speak with your nurse if she is available. If she is not available, she will call you back as soon as possible. I cannot speak more highly of the nursing team! They are wonderful!
Describe your experience with CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth.
FIRM's strengths are that they care about each patient and are the best at what they do. Every member of the FIRM team is an expert at what they do. They never made a mistake and were very easy to work with.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Rinku Mehta at CCRM Dallas-Fort Worth.
They will give you a print out of the costs for your cycle depending on what you need. They do not do a "package" for IVF, but they do give you a discount on your next cycle if your first is not successful. We preferred this.

Very knowledgeable and hard working. She [Dr. Mehta] doesn't give up on her patients. I just wish she would spend more time on explaining. Communication outside of the clinic was through the nurse. With her busy schedule it was bit difficult to talk to her but she did respond through the nurse... she seem to be concerned and wanted to help.... she was very busy and would only see us for few minutes.
