The first step with Dr. Homm was to remove the right fallopian tube, which was closed on one end. Doing so, it will prevent me from having a tubal/ectopic pregnancy. So far, that is the only thing I have done with him is the surgery a few days ago, which went great by the way. Before hand, he also recommended doing some genetic testing, we followed up with that to make sure we were healthy and there wouldn't be any potential risks. I'm glad we did that because it helped us to decide on treatments in the future.

How was your experience with Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
Dr. Homm has been great with explaining different options for our fertility journey. He doesn't waste time when it's time to move on to the next step of treatments. I recently had surgery to remove my right fallopian tube and he was amazing. He is very warm and welcoming with his patients and it really feels like he cares and wants to help. He doesn't make you feel like just another number walking in. He's compassionate and hopeful, therefore helping me to be less anxious and more confident.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
Don't hesitate, he is the best around and you will not regret choosing him to be your specialist for your fertility journey!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
Dr. Homm has been amazing at explaining everything and all of the different options we can take to conceive. He makes myself and my husband feel very welcome and easy to talk to. He has given me hope that one day we may actually be able to have a baby.
Describe the protocols Robert Homm used in your cycles at Fertility and Endocrine Associates and their degree of success.
We have recently just started seeing Dr. Homm a few months ago after finding out from my OBGYN that I have a unicornuate uterus. The first step with Dr. Homm was to remove the right fallopian tube, which was closed on one end. Doing so, it will prevent me from having a tubal/ectopic pregnancy. So far, that is the only thing I have done with him is the surgery a few days ago, which went great by the way. Before hand, he also recommended doing some genetic testing, we followed up with that to make sure we were healthy and there wouldn't be any potential risks. I'm glad we did that because it helped us to decide on treatments in the future.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Everyone has been very nice and helpful, gentle when I have to give blood samples for testing. I don't feel like another person passing through, they are very sweet and kind.
Describe your experience with Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
I think the clinic has everything that a patient would need to continue on with their fertility journey. Dr. Homm and the nurse practitioner in the practice have been together for I believe over 20 years. That right there says a lot about a clinic when you can work with the same people for that long. They have every treatment option available to choose for each individual's needs.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
Insurance has covered most of my visits thus far. I usually just have a copay. I just had surgery a few days ago so that was the first step in our journey. We will be deciding what's next and that's when the costs will be evaluated.
Describe Robert Homm's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
We haven't gotten to this part of our journey yet, but with my condition it is recommended that I only have a single embryo transfer, due to the smaller size of my uterus.

Dr Homm was very kind and positive. He made me feel at ease during all procedures.... He also was very flexible and willing to change his schedule around to accommodate whatever would increase chances of success. Initially I was scheduled for one date for retrieval, however, my body responded super quick so he rearranged to move my surgery up by a week. This would result in a weekend transfer which he was willing to do despite the fact they would be closed.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
Ask questions. He is more than willing to answer, so don’t shy away from doing so.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
Dr Homm was very kind and positive. He made me feel at ease during all procedures.
Describe the protocols Robert Homm used in your cycles at Fertility and Endocrine Associates and their degree of success.
My first cycle: I was placed on 3 vials of menopur per night but later decreased to 2. I was prescribed estrogen tablets as well as estrogen gel. This was a frozen cycle so i began progesterone suppositories prior to transfer. Second cycle: i was prescribed 3 vials of Menopur per night. My body responded well but I did not decrease this time. My follies were growing extremely fast so my retrieval had to be moved up. I was a tad concerned I did not decrease (due to the growth rate) and unfortunately during retrieval, many had overmatured. I began progesterone in oil injections the night of retrieval. I was not prescribed estrogen tabs this time, but was prescribed the gel. However, i began the gel 3 days prior to retrieval so with the retrieval being pushed up, I am not sure if my body had enough time to respond before transfer. This part was out of anyone’s control.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility and Endocrine Associates. (Assigned nurse: Dr Devine)
Dr Devine was very warm mannered and always took time to answer questions. I tend to worry and she was very reassuring.
Describe your experience with Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
They are very timely in returning calls and try their best to accommodate schedules. The office staff are very friendly and actually remember you, which is nice. They remember things about our families, workplace and etc which make you feel as though they really care. On some occasions they are short staffed and the wait can be a bit longer than expected.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
Monitoring appointments were easily scheduled. They were able to work with our schedules.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
My fresh transfer cost a little over $4000 and my frozen cost a bit over $10000. They do a “Heros Discount” for servicmen/women, so we took advantage of that. I remember ICSI cost appx $1K, thawing (for frozen embryos) cost appx $250, assisted hatching cost appx $450.

Dr Homm doesn't have the best bedside manor, but that's why I usually see Dr Divine in the office. Dr Homm does seem to be very knowledgeable and he did manage to give me the baby I wanted. I've not been as successful at having a second, though....Know that though his demeanor can seem somewhat off putting, he's still a good doctor.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
I mostly saw Dr Divine while under the care of their office and I loved her. I really only dealt with Dr Homm during actual procedures. He did make me feel comfortable during those, though.
Describe the protocols Robert Homm used in your cycles at Fertility and Endocrine Associates and their degree of success.
I do not have a good memory for these types of things. I do not recall the specific meds that I was on for the original IVF cycle. I just know that there were injections and pills and creams. The retrieval surgery was done under general anesthesia. Then more meds to build my lining, and the transfer was done in the office. I also had a lap and D&C before we started, after a uterine fibroid was found. That was when I was also diagnosed with endometriosis. My two subsequent unsuccessful FETs included Lupron injections (I don't think that I used this for the original cycle), estrogen pills and gel, antibiotics, steroids, and crinone vaginal cream. The transfers both also took place in the office. They thawed the frozen embryos that morning I believe, made sure they expanded, and then implanted them. There were always ultrasounds done before each transfer was scheduled to check the uterus and ovaries, and then another one done a week before transfer to check the lining. Nothing was done after each failure. We still have one more embryo to transfer, and I was advised at my last appointment that they've started to also include a uterine "scrape" before each transfer now. It's a procedure done in the office that's like a mini D&C, to increase the likelihood that the embryo will stick. But I haven't had that procedure previously.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are all very friendly and compassionate, and they all seem to have a real connection with their patients, or at least with me.
Describe your experience with Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
The only weakness I've found has to do with billing. They switched systems, and started sending me a bill for $120, when I know that I paid in full up front, because they required me to. They can't tell me what the bill is for, because it's from their old system and they can't look it up. Other than that, I've never had a problem with anyone there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
The original IVF cycle cost us around $20,000 including the meds and the ICSI procedure.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Homm at Fertility and Endocrine Associates?
I always felt as if they cared about my overall care not just my money. I struggled with my weight and we had long discussions about if I got healthy I could have a healthy pregnancy. I’m now down50lbs and wanting to try IVF. I have worked to hard to give up now.
Describe the protocols Robert Homm used in your cycles at Fertility and Endocrine Associates and their degree of success.
Dr homm used times intercourse at first with the use of femara. I responded well but no success with IUI. I decided to take a break and focus on my health and weight loss. Now after losing 50lbs I’m ready to begin more aggressive treatment
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility and Endocrine Associates. (Assigned nurse: Julie and Dr Homms assistant )
Dr Homms assistant was always compassionate. Would answer any questions or concerns and also tried to make you feel as comfortable as possible even when your nervous as can be. Would always give a shoulder to cry on when you need it.
Describe your experience with Fertility and Endocrine Associates.
Weakness would be trying to schedule a quick appointment sometimes it was hard. Also no appointments on the weekends. Strengths- good patient care. Trustworthy. Knowledgeable Dr homm and Dr Devine are a great team. They work together to figure out your personal treatment plan and will do whatever it takes to make you comfortable. It’s very hard to deal with unexplained infertility especially when you have had one child. There are many fears going through this process but these doctors do everything they can to make you comfortable and feeling like your dreams can come true.

Dr. Homm is very patient and explanatory of every aspect of the fertility process. He treats me as if I matter and speaks with pronouns that shows that he is in this process with us, no matter what. When we have had results that weren't what we wanted, he consoled us and then adapted our plans to hope for the next round.... Due to my weight, Dr. Homm has advised me to lose weight, but since that is not a quick fix, he adapted the amount of meds used to work well with my current weight.
