Dr. Somkuti always made time to answer all my questions. Appointments never felt rushed and never felt like he had more important things to do....With fertility treatments, there is no guarantee a pregnancy will result. However, all the drs are extremely positive. Dr. Somkuti would take the time at each ultrasound and explain the procedure, answer questions, and explain my chances....Every cycle besides my first, I had ICSI done.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stephen G. Somkuti at Abington Reproductive Medicine?
Ask questions if you have questions. Don’t be afraid to speak up. Fertility is expensive and they expect to have questions.

Describe the protocols Stephen G. Somkuti used in your cycles at Abington Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Every cycle besides my first, I had ICSI done.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
With multiple appointments each week, you get to know all staff. The nursing staff soon knows you by name and are also friendly and helpful. I like to understand everything that is happening and the nurses and drs made time to answer any question I had.
Describe your experience with Abington Reproductive Medicine.
Their primary strength would have to be the number of locations they now have. I had to drive into Abington every day but now they have satellite offices in many cities. That is huge to someone from out of town and who has to work. The only downside would be then that all retrievals must be done at the main office.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stephen G. Somkuti at Abington Reproductive Medicine.
The costs were comparable to other clinics.

In the beginning, my husband and I really appreciated Dr. Somkuti's openness and willingness to answer questions. As treatment went on, I felt like that lessened and more and more we were pushed off to the nursing and clinic staff...He was great at our initial assessment with explaining everything and walking us through the testing process. Subsequent visits have felt a little rushed and like some of my questions were annoying.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is great, but often hard to get in touch with (it is always a process of leaving a message and having them get back to you). Also, a few times, I felt like there wasn't a clear communication with the full team as to cycle next steps.
