I was prescribed heparin for my donor cycle [with Dr. Thomas Kosasa]. I became pregnant; however miscarried at 10 weeks. Doubled up on progesterone injections at 6 days past 5 day transfer due to bleeding...Dr. always pushed to transfer two embryos to increase odds...is kind hearted and values his work and cares about his patients... I sometimes felt like I had to repeat my questions and still wasn't satisfied. He is smart, compassionate and very positive but sometimes a man of little words which sometimes left me with questions unanswered or adequately answered.
The staff at Pacific IVF are very accomodating and compassionate. Lynnea [nurse] is trustworthy and took time to listen to our concerns and would address them honestly. She always responded to my needs and would give quality advice...$5,500 for FET (own eggs retrieved at another clinic and donor eggs) $15,500 for clinic fees associated with donor egg cycle.... All the nurses are seasoned and compassionate and personable.

The staff at Pacific IVF are very accomodating and compassionate. Lynnea is trustworthy and took time to listen to our concerns and would address them honestly.

Describe your experience with Pacific In Vitro Fertilization Institute.
The staff at IVF made always gave me world class treatment and were always quick to respond to our needs. All the nurses are seasoned and compassionate and personable. The clinic is very accomodating to your schedule and will make adjustments as needed. I preferred my primary doctor but was seen once by another Dr which resulted in a negative experience for me. I requested to be exclusively seen by my primary Dr. and Lynnea, my nurse accomodated my request by making slight changes to my calendar for my upcoming FET.
