She has amazing bedside manner. She spoke to me like my specific situation was important to her.

I honestly couldn’t say one negative thing. It was beautiful. It was a comfortable environment. Everyone was so pleasant. I left ready to take the next step. Dr Singleton explained in detail every thing that she would be doing to complete IUI. The nurses repeatedly made sure I understood all instructions and never once was there not a smile on their face. Even the financial department did a wonderful job explaining every fee I could or would expect. They were very straight forward with everything I could expect throughout treatment

How was your experience with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
I would likely not be alive if not for Dr. Singleton. During my first (and only) egg retrieval she could not get to my right ovary and most of my left ovary without puncturing my bowels. As a result she sent me for a GI consult and during surgery it was discovered my endometriosis was eating through my colon. Had this not been discovered there is not telling what would have happened. I may not like the answers she gives me (such as I don't recommend an egg retrieval with your newly discovered clotting disease, I would prefer you use donor eggs for your safety), but she has always been honest about my chances and what to expect. While I am only focusing on getting pregnant, she makes sure to also focus on keeping me healthy and that is important. In addition to being thorough and honest, she is also very compassionate which helps a lot when dealing with infertility.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
Don't expect overnight results no matter which doctor you choose. As hard as it is, be patient but don't be afraid to ask questions and speak up.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
Every time I called or sent an e-mail, I always received a prompt and knowledgeable response. I have had a number of health problems since I began seeing Dr. Singleton, including 3 unplanned medically necessary surgeries, so my case is not "normal", yet despite the issues, Dr. Singleton and her staff have always been able to provide me with an answer or a referral. But even more important than answering my questions, Dr. Singleton took the time out to call my primary doctors and specialist to make sure she was well versed in all of my medical conditions and could proceed in a safe manner.
Describe the protocols Stephanie Singleton used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Charleston and their degree of success.
My egg retrieval cycle was done with progesterone (I think), gonal f, ganilrelix. Could not retrieve all follicles because of obstruction. For my donor egg cycle we are using progesterone, estrace, and Lupron. The donor egg cycle is still ongoing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Charleston. (Assigned nurse: Pat (retired) and now Krysta)
I love both of my nursing care coordinators as well as the rest of the staff! Everyone is always so nice and never makes you feel like you are crazy when you inevitably ask the same question for the 15th time. Plus they are always easy to get in touch with and always respond within 24 hours.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Charleston.
I love everything about the clinic. It is clean and welcoming (both in Savannah and Charleston). The only weakness I can think of is sometimes you have to wait a while if you are visiting the primary location in Charleston.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston.
My IVF cycle was approximately $15,000 plus $5,000 for medication. The egg donor cycle is approximately $19,000, including the eggs (I had a credit from the IVF cycle, so we did not pay an additional $19,000) and $800 in medication.
Describe Stephanie Singleton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Charleston.
Because of the health risks involved in multiples to both the mother and the babies, Dr. Singleton only does single embryo transfers unless you have a history of failed implantation.

How was your experience with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
After being scared to see a fertility specialist for 8 years, we went to see her. She explained my PCOS in very easy to understand terms and explained that bc of my situation only IVF would be possible. I cried, bc I was scared, but she grabbed my hand and told me not to cry, that everything is possible and she would do everything she could to help me. I can’t wait to continue treatment soon. She is an angel in scrubs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
Know that she will tell you everything you both want and need to hear. She will explain everything to you and you will not leave her office wondering or not having an answer to all your questions
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
She breaks everything down so that you understand. She also tells you the truths, not just what you want to hear. She made us feel so much better, that after 8 years of trying, it is possible with treatment to have a healthy baby...

Jessica is the one who is helping me get back into the system. Giving me information on what tests are needed, etc. she has been a great help. both phone and emails are always answered
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Charleston.
Everyone from front desk, to lab assistants are so caring and compassionate. It is a very scary feeling but from the time you start with the clinic they make you feel safe and like everyone else. The most intimidating person in the clinic is the financial team. But it’s not a bad intimidating, it’s just frustrating to hear that your dream of being a mother depends on your credit history or what type of loans you can get. This is actually what stopped my treatment bc we couldn’t get a loan, but I think we are to a point now that we will be ready.. still praying
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston.
My treatment was going to be $14,000 approximately. This is why I had to put my treatment on hold

Dr. Singleton said she would not recommend IUI being that my one tube is blocked and I have a diminishing ovarian reserve. I told her my obgyn said I could still get pregnant naturally with one open tube. I asked her to write me a prescription for Clomid to boost ovulation to help me conceive naturally. She told me no and I need to go back to my obgyn and have him write it. She said she recommends IVF. I said I don't have the money to do IVF right now. And I have faith that I can still conceive with my one open tube. She said it's possible, but IVF is your only option. She leaned back in her chair and folded her arms. I left crying my eyes out. She treated me like I was nothing. Just another number. All she wanted was for me to pay for IVF. She didn't even try to help me doing any other treatments first. No medicine nothing. Just pay her for IVF.

How was your experience with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
I went to Dr. Singleton for a second opinion. Our first appointment with her was ok. She ran some test and we had a 2nd appointment scheduled. The next appointment she recommended I go back to my obgyn and schedule surgery to look at my tubes because my HSG showed both tubes blocked. I had my surgery then I went back to Dr. Singleton for a follow up. I was so excited to start IUI because my obgyn said my left tube was open and the right tube was blocked. Dr. Singleton said she would not recommend IUI being that my one tube is blocked and I have a diminishing ovarian reserve. I told her my obgyn said I could still get pregnant naturally with one open tube. I asked her to write me a prescription for Clomid to boost ovulation to help me conceive naturally. She told me no and I need to go back to my obgyn and have him write it. She said she recommends IVF. I said I don't have the money to do IVF right now.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
You better have tough skin when dealing with her.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
I felt like she treated me like a number. No compassion what so ever. Just the way she talked to me was so cold. I remember on my last appointment with her I told her I was going to continue trying to conceive naturally and she said you can try but IVF is your only option and I wouldn't put it off given your diagnosis.
Describe the protocols Stephanie Singleton used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Charleston and their degree of success.
Only treatment she recommended was IVF. She said given my blocked tubes, diminishing ovarian reserve and my spouse had a issue with the shape of his sperm. Not the count but his motility numbers were a bit low.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses I saw were pretty nice.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Charleston.
The clinic was nice. Very clean. Front desk staff were nice and greet you. The 2nd time I went there was a wait but not too long. The clinic was easy to find. They appeared fully staff. I think Dr. Singleton is the only doctor in there. The financial coordinator had a bit of an attitude. It's like they don't try to help their patients. If you don't have money go somewhere else.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston.
I paid a $30 copay. The 2nd opinion was free. They gave me an estimate for IVF. They wanted roughly $6200 upfront, not including medications.

Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Charleston.
Fertility Center of Charleston is a small, boutique practice that really gets to know their patients and welcomes them to their "family." I enjoyed going to all of my visits and getting to see everyone. Now since I have "graduated" I certainly miss seeing the crew. Due to the boutique atmosphere, you are not just a patient, you are a friend. You will see the same faces day in and day out, therefore creating a familiar environment in which you feel comfortable. It truly feels as if they are on the journey with you.

She [Dr. Stephanie Singleton] is very honest and I really appreciate it. She hasn't given us a false sense of hope.

I don't know if that is what other doctors would do but she wasn't afraid to have me get a second opinion if I wanted one.

Listen to the doctors, do exactly what they say. It was very important that I do that when I had OHSS and it saved me a lot of doctor visits because I followed instructions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
They were very good at listening to our questions and taking the time to answer them. We had questions about our embryo and eggs and they let us talk to the embryologist to make sure we were comfortable with the steps taken.

My experience has been great! And that's coming from someone who doesn't have a baby yet. The office is amazing; everyone is incredibly kind and supportive. I miss going to appointments when we've taken breaks. They are such a light in an otherwise stressful time. They're also incredibly professional and I trust them implicitly. This situation would have been a million times harder if we'd been at an office that doesn't have such warm, caring, and confident professionals. We're hoping to try again with our last two embryos sometime early next year and I'm looking forward to seeing them again and hopeful for a great outcome.

Dr. Singleton is by far the most compassionate, professional and driven doctor I have seen while trying to conceive. She is incredibly insightful, knowledgeable and a credit to her field. At no time did I feel like a burden or just another patient.... We have not had any cycles yet. However, in helping me gain control of my body and work on my weight, Dr. Singleton prescribed metformin as part of my treatment plan.

Not very timely and never remembered who I was

Not very timely and heavy on marketing - they seem to like to get patients because of this and the sensitivity of the nature of the practice and issues at hand but end of the day seem to only care about numbers/stats.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Singleton. She is a brilliant Doctor who diagnosed my conditions and treated them appropriately so I could carry a baby full term. She is warm and kind. I appreciated her candor throughout my cycle.... We transferred a single embryo that had been PGS tested. We did not know the gender. Since I had a history of RPL we only transferred one embryo to give me the best chance of carrying full term. I fully supported this decision as we knew the embryo was healthy.

How was your experience with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
I could write a book- but here’s the gist- 1- dr Singleton is incredibly sweet but her practice and operations have gotten away from her 2- she cannot keep any staff other than the phlebotomist, receptionist, and practice manager 3- her talented embryologist runs the clinic “from afar”- we requested the qualifications of the embryologist who is local and were given none. Subsequently, our embryo didn’t survive thaw. I heard from another patient- same thing happened to her two weeks prior- statistically, that’s practically impossible. 4- she refuses to disclose her success rates- huge red flag We are now with the other practice in Charleston- they are a well oiled machine and a night and day difference!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
Do your homework, demand recent success rates independently verified, and request credentials/education/qualifications of her staff
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stephanie Singleton at Fertility Center of Charleston?
I saw Dr Singleton in 2015- we will be forever grateful for her for giving us our daughter then. But when we came back in 2018, the practice was completely different- the staff is different and not incredibly competent and new, the practice has gotten too big for the one physician, and the embryologist had no bedside manner.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Forgetting to schedule me for a endometrial scratch, blowing me off when calling about headaches and symptoms and refusing to put me through to doctor, and inability to answer a single question I asked of her
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Charleston.
It’s a zoo- too many patients, not enough staff. Expect wait times of at least 30-60 minutes. The phlebotomist is also the sonographer- no clue what Sort of training she has undergone but had lots of problems visualizing various things including number of follicles and my bladder. Since I left, I am pretty sure that the entire nursing staff has turned over. The practice manager is cold as a fish and generally unhelpful and unpleasant.
