He [Dr Thomas Kosasa] has great bedside manner and is compassionate. He didn't explain procedures to us, what to expect, etc. His descriptions were always very brief and not informative. Our course of treatments were never discussed in detail beforehand. For example, he mentioned trying IUI first with us, but did not explain why, possible statistics, etc.

Describe the protocols Thomas Kosasa used in your cycles at Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute and their degree of success.
We had a long agonist protocol, first starting off with birth control and Lupron. Menopur and Follistim were added. They produced 12 follicles. There was no rationale nor explanation given to us for using them. We showed up to our injection lesson and were told what medications we would be on, how to administer, etc. This was never discussed prior, e.g. during the consultation.
Describe your experience with Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute.
Most experienced in the state. However, we felt like a number in the clinic. Despite numerous cycles in the clinic, staff did not readily know us by name, without first looking at our chart.
