Describe the protocols Stephen Sawin used in your cycles at South Jersey Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We’re dealing with slight make factor but mostly our infertility is unexplainable. He was pretty confident that we would be able to conceive through IUI. So far the 2 IUIs we’ve done haven’t been successful. For my first IUI I did 50mg of clomid on cd3-7 and then the ovidrel trigger shot on cd11. I believe I had my IUI on cd 13. For my second IUI I did 100mg clomid on cd 3-7 and ovidrel trigger shot on cd14. I had my IUI on cd15. They were hoping that I’d produce more than one mature follicle with the higher dose of clomid but I still only produced 1. For the first IUI the sperm count was 8 million post wash and for the second IUI it was 7.5 million post wash.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at south jersey fertility is amazing! They’re all so sweet and nice. They took good care of me and made me feel comfortable. I’ve had to bring my son to several of my appointments and they’re always so sweet to him too.
Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
It’s very easy to get an appointment. They have multiple locations, 2 of which are close to me. They have good appointment times and they even have appointments on the weekends. The nurses always call back the same day if I call and leave a message or if I’m waiting for test results.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stephen Sawin at South Jersey Fertility Center.
My first IUI was $350. I paid out of pocket for my medication since my insurance doesn’t cover infertility. My second IUI was $300. I just received a bill in the mail for $100 for the sperm washing. I need to call billing to find out if that was a mistake sincecwe didn’t pay extra for that the first time.

No matter if we receive good news or bad news when my husband and I are meeting with Dr. Sawin we always feel hopefully. It is very apparent that he truly cares about his patients and wants to try and help them conceive... took ever bit of knowledge he had to help with treatments. Going through fertility treatments is very invasive and can leave someone feeling insecure but I never have felt that way with Dr Sawin. He puts me at ease and calms my anxiety whenever I see him.

Very professional but at the same time very caring and compassionate.
Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
Strength is the availablity to see a doctor and make an appointment fairly quickly. It is also great they have so many locations throughout the state, so even when I’m on vacation at the beach I can still go to the doctor during a cycle because there is an office nearby. Weakness would be sometimes there is a long wait in the waiting room if previous appointments run long.

Dr. Sawin is caring and kind but does not always take time to explain things in full detail as I would like. I feel his method is an "overview" approach to not stress patients out but I left appointments feeling like I wanted more information and would often call the clinic the next day to clarify.... Tubal removal due to two blocked tubes. One IVF cycle day 5 fresh transfer-miscarriage at 6 weeks. One FET cycle- miscarriage at 10 weeks s/p no heartbeat at 7 weeks Increased hormone dosage or progesterone for FET cycle with better results

Describe your experience with South Jersey Fertility Center.
I've been happy with the clinic since Day 1. I think they could explain donor egg cycle costs a little better with respect to gaps in insurance coverage after pre-authorization. They are easy to deal with. They are affiliated with a few different OB/GYN offices in the area (Regional Women's Health Group, Garden State OB/GYN).
