Dr Wincek had great bedside manor. I appreciated that he actually listened to my concerns & agree to testing that I requested based on my own research & our conversations. I was pleasantly surprised when he did my tests himself rather than just ordering them...Be ready to hear the good, bad and the ugly. He will tell your exactly what’s going on as the information is available to him. Don’t be afraid to explain your concerns and ask for tests.
She [nurse at Baylor Scott & White] was proficient at her job. She handled all of the cases at the time I began treatment and was able to reply to phone calls and emails in a timely manner with accuracy. Kim was caring and knowledgeable. The bedside manner was excellent...There was a set fee for someone with my insurance which was great. $3500 for a mini IVF including monitoring & procedures. Meds had a co-pay set by my insurance. IUI was $800 set including monitoring. Meds were not included.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Thomas Wincek at Baylor Scott & White?
The cycles were set up based on the clinics needs more so than my own. I was put on birth control to sync my cycle with their schedule although down regulation isn’t needed for PCOS pt’s.
Describe the protocols Thomas Wincek used in your cycles at Baylor Scott & White and their degree of success.
We decided to skip the down regulation using birth control based off my diagnosis of PCOS and current research showing it to result in less favorable outcomes. My retreat yielded 9 eggs on a “mini cycle” ( flare , with minimal stimulation) where it had previously only yielded a maximum of 3 eggs. I also had a uterine biopsy done at my request due to previous losses which I felt may have left an infection. The results were positive & treatment proceeded. My next transfer was successful.

Describe your experience with Baylor Scott & White.
The clinic is clean and conveniently located inside of the Scott and White hospital. All tests and procedures can be done on site. Medications can be picked up at the on site pharmacy as well. It can be challenging to get appointments scheduled however the team does their very best to squeeze you in if necessary.

Dr. Wincek was the only doctor willing to help me after 5 long years. He went above and beyond, showed compassion. He was willing to let me try a few things on my own terms, has not been pushy has been completely understanding and respectful. I truly have nothing negative to say about him...His knowledge into infertility is outstanding, he’s willing to bend over backwards to help and accommodate me
[Nursing staff at Baylor Scott & White is] Absolutely amazing!! They never ask what I’m being seen for, they already know because they took the time to read my chart. They interact with you, and help you. Nurse Kimberly the main nurse always open to emailing and answering your questions in a way that you’ll understand. They’ve all been amazing!

I did what is known as a “mini” IVF [with Dr. Wincek] I was prescribed 2 fertility oral meds during my cycle to enhance egg production and went in multiple times for ultrasounds. I did a trigger shot prior to egg retrieval...At that point they took my 4 eggs and did ICSI with husbands sperm. I was called every day for 4 days for an update on my embryos...He is the best around and definitely the right price. He is very caring and you can tell he loves his job
The [Baylor Scott & White] clinic is very good at communication. Whenever you make a phone call, they get back to you right away. They are very quick in answering messages through the online portal...All 4 [embryos] made in to blast stage and on day 5 we implanted to fresh embryos and the other 2 were frozen...[nurses] They we always available to talk when I had a question over Mychart or if I called

I have recommended Dr. Wincek to numerous people and they have all resulted in a pregnancy. He is the best around and definitely the right price. He is very caring and you can tell he loves his job. I recently brought my twins to see him and he got very excited. His process is quick and to the point. He knows what to do and when to do it.

Dr. Wincek is a kind doctor, always talked to me like everything was going to be ok. Very positive attitude.
Describe the protocols Thomas Wincek used in your cycles at Baylor Scott & White and their degree of success.
I did what is known as a “mini” IVF. I was prescribed 2 fertility oral meds during my cycle to enhance egg production and went in multiple times for ultrasounds. I did a trigger shot prior to egg retrieval. I was not sedated during the egg retrieval because not many eggs were produced because I was not given a lot of medicine. At that point they took my 4 eggs and did ICSI with husbands sperm. I was called every day for 4 days for an update on my embryos. All 4 made in to blast stage and on day 5 we implanted to fresh embryos and the other 2 were frozen. I went in a couple weeks later for a blood test and it resulted it a positive. Went in at 7 weeks for ultrasound and found out that one of the embryos had split and was having identical twins. I was released after this ultrasound to my OBGYN.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Baylor Scott & White.
The nurses are just as amazing as the doctor. They we always available to talk when I had a question over Mychart or if I called. We had so many visits that the nurses became like friends. After we found out we were pregnant, they lined the hall and congratulated us!

The clinic is very good at communication. Whenever you make a phone call, they get back to you right away. They are very quick in answering messages through the online portal. The clinic is a little older looking so they could use some updated decor but that’s not a big deal. If that is the only weakness I can find then I think they are doing pretty good.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Wincek is amazing. He cares about what is happening to me. When I get bad news, he seems just as upset as I do. Which lets me know he genuinely cares. And when I stress out about what’s to come, he finds a way to talk to me and make me feel like everything is going to be ok.... Dr. Wincek is just as invested in my journey as I am. I can send messages at any time and get a response. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
The clinics [Scott & White] strengths are they are very nice, routinely on time and will answer any questions I have. The only weakness I see... the waiting room is the same waiting area for all pregnant women and newborns. On particularly bad days, it seems like a sick joke. That is what I want so terribly bad.... Every visit is $500. Each IUI is $700. Trigger shot is $150. Next rounds IVF with no anesthesia, will be $3900, not including medications. Insurance covers nothing. No payments. All is due the day before appointment.

Round 1- Femara and Clomid 50mg. I only had 2 follicles. Did a trigger shot and we had sex. Did not work. I didn’t feel many side effects except night sweats on meds. Round 2 - Femara and Clomid 100mg. 5 follicles, trigger shot and then IUI #1. On meds, more night sweats, and a rollercoaster of emotions. Round 3- Femara and Clomid 100mg. 4 follicles. Trigger shot and IUI #2. Lots of crying with meds and headaches. Waiting for results. 9 more days. If no go, we will be doing IVF.

From ththe first time we met with Dr. Wincek we knew he was a perfect fit for us. We told him from the beginning of our treatment what we expected and what not. After our first round of meds we conceived but it resulted in a miscarriage. When we went in to the appointment to diagnose as miscarriage he was so sweet and gentle but didn’t sugar coat our questions which from the beginning we told him not to sugar coat stuff for us.
The clinic [Scott & White] is and amazing fit for us and I wouldn’t change anything. The ease for making appointments is great, the entire staff from when you walk off the elevator to when you leave is so friendly and caring. I wouldn’t change anything.... [Nurse] She is amazing and goes above and beyond for all of Dr.Winceks patients.... We paid 3500 for the mini Icsi cycle then the medicated with timed intercourse cycles we paid out of pocket for the medicine which was about 200 a month.

Dr Wincek is very knowledgeable and supremely kind. He was the first Dr I’ve seen for infertility and I was very new to the whole process. He took his time with me and made me feel like o was his only patient. I could tell that he would do everything possible to help my husband and I. He made even the most uncomfortable texting better because of his bedside manner. He was very caring about our course of treatment and very matter of fact. I think it’s importsnt as a new fertility patient to feel peace. I felt that at every visit.
This clinic [Baylor Scott & White] was amazing! I honestly never had a bad moment there. I felt that I was in the best care possible at all times. It was always clean, organized and I never had to wait. They were busy, but I never felt like I was being rushed or that I was just a number. I’m so appreciative of the experience. ... All of Dr Wincheks staff was incredible. They always remembered me. They were funny, kind and made me feel at home.

We did all of my female testing and the results came back very positive. We tested my husband and found out about the male factor. He prescribed clomid.

We ended up getting out of the military and moving away so unfortunately, we didn’t continue further with him, but we would have if we could have stayed there.

Dr wincek is a very caring doctor. He always makes sure you understand and is always trying his best to help us build a family! ... When it was time for us to go from iui to ivf he let us know right away instead of us wasting our money on an iui that he knew wasn’t a good chance of working. He always worked with me to help me try to figure out meds that would work but still not be as expensive.
Overall they are a very amazing doctors office.

my experience [with Dr. Thomas Wincek] has been good although it hasn't resulted in pregnancy yet. He has a great bedside manner and always is encouraging, he answers my questions, tells me what to expect next and is very quick to message back when i use the online portal...we started with Femara, it didn't work for me, we then added clomid, it took a few cycles to find what dosage my body responded to. we upped the dose as needed and would use a trigger shot to ovulate if i had any eggs, the next step since we've done this for 6 months would be the daily hormone injections
[Baylor Scott & White is a] great clinic would highly recommend. This is a complex process so they've been really good about keeping me up to date on what's going on and if it doesn't work then developing a plan of action moving forward...my experience has been good although it hasn't resulted in pregnancy yet...nurses are always very nice...shes so good with making me comfortable and doing small talk...we started with Femara, it didn't work for me, we then added clomid, it took a few cycles to find what dosage my body responded to. we upped the dose as needed and would use a trigger shot to ovulate if i had any eggs, the next step since we've done this for 6 months would be the daily hormone injections

I only wish that [Dr. Thomas Wincek] would have listen to what I wanted...We were undergoing a Mini IVF cycle. I had requested to start on injectable after the first ultrasound showed my follicles weren’t growing fast, he declined and said to continue on my oral meds. After 2 more ultrasounds he finally said to do injectables, but it was too late. We had to cancel the cycle completely due to poor response. I felt like it could have been avoided if we started on injecatbles sooner.
3500 for the mini IVF. Plus 1000 for injections [at Scott & White]...The clinic was great. Fast appointment times and welcoming attitudes from all. I would recommend the clinic to anyone. The prices are affordable as well...I only wish that [Dr. Thomas Wincek] would have listen to what I wanted...We were undergoing a Mini IVF cycle.

Sometimes I felt as though he [Dr. Thomas Wincek] was too busy to really remember anything about me or my treatment and I'd have to remind him about a lot...He is very sweet and you can tell he not only loves what he does, but he truly cares about his patients. Sometimes you can definitely tell when he's having an "off day" but I genuinely think it's because he takes every success AND failure to heart...he tends to be quick about his appointments.
The nurses [at Scott & White] have always been very friendly. Kimberly, the nurse I message with regularly is such a wonderful person. She's very easy to talk to and sympathetic to all the downfalls and failures. If she doesn't know the answer then she'll find it out for you...It's a fairly standard OB/GYN office. Sometimes they run behind and your wait is longer but they try to get you in as soon as they can and are sincerely apologetic. Everyone is always very friendly and welcoming.

He was always in a rush, we tried 8 clomid cycles, each time failed we’d up the dose. Did a total of 8 timed cycles then moved on to 3 IUI’s. Wasn’t until then Dr.Wincek realized my husband had very low sperm count. The clomid cycles wouldn’t have worked for any of our treatments. Recommended a IVF with ICSI. Money down the drain!... Get your spouses sperm checked, Dr. Wincek should had advised us of this. Too many years wasted and money gone.
[Scott & White] Was in a hospital, so definitely not the spa like atmosphere. Was just like a hospital check up.... Surgeries are performed in surgery center.... Our trigger time was given wrong, I ovulated before my second IUI. I knew I did, I felt it. Dr.Wincek said it’s impossible, but after insisting on testing. I was right and so had in fact ovulated resulting in cancellation of IUI.... Get your spouses sperm checked, Dr. Wincek should had advised us of this.
