He [Dr. Tamosso Falcone] is very honest and can be matter of fact. He does not sugar coat or give false hope. He also does not take away hope. Most improtantly he is very knowledgeable and using cutting edge treatments, attempting to find better ways to treat women with infertility, specifically those with Endometriosis.... Don't expect warmth and emotions. While he is very kind, he is also very straight forward and sticks very much to the facts.
Strengths [at Cleveland Clinic]: Efficiency, respectful, kind, compassionate, clean, honest, great communication (email and phone calls answered either that day or next business day). Weaknesses: Some days/ times are quite busy in the lobby. Can take some time to get registered/ signed in (arrive early).... I have worked a lot with 2 nurses, Susan and Mary. They are both kind, compassionate, and quick to respond. They have often called back well after normal business hours in order to answer questions or provide test results. Every staff member at Dr Falcone's office was friendly and treated us with highest regards.
How was your experience with Tommaso Falcone at Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center?
I absolutely love Dr Falcone and would highly recommend him. No we didn't get the outcome we wanted so far, but he is not able to control that. He has done everything that he can do for us. He is very honest and can be matter of fact. He does not sugar coat or give false hope. He also does not take away hope. Most improtantly he is very knowledgeable and using cutting edge treatments, attempting to find better ways to treat women with infertility, specifically those with Endometriosis.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Tommaso Falcone at Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center?
Take something to write with. Be prepared with questions.

While he is very kind, he is also very straight forward and sticks very much to the facts.

He [Dr. Tomasso Falcone] was very nice and listened to all of my questions and concerns. He was willing to try other more conservative methods before IVF. He answered my emails promptly. He allowed me to use eastern medicinal practice along with treatment...Have a list of questions and concerns when going to appointments, do research to know what is the best course of action for you I cling what you and your partner are ready and willing to try (i.e.: clomid vs IUI vs IVF). Always ask questions and for him to explain everything so you can understand.
The nursing staff [at the Cleveland Clinic] was wonderful! They went above and beyond to make everything easier for me. The nurses explained everything to me during ultrasounds, bloodwork, etc...Monitoring appointments were always scheduled in the morning so that all results were in by the lunch meeting that all doctors/nurses would discuss each case and determine course of action. I would always get a call in the afternoon with updates and information.

Describe the protocols Tommaso Falcone used in your cycles at Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Femara after I changed around my diet and vitamins based on my own research. After a miscarriage (first under his care) he suggested IVF with a freeze-all cycle and PGS testing. He felt that the miscarriages weren't by chance and was hopeful that the additional testing would give us answers and the best/healthiest embryos for transfer. He wanted to do a freeze-all cycle due to PCOS and to allow my body a break before transfer.

Describe your experience with Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center.
All retrievals and transfers are done at the Beachwood location.

[Dr. Tomasso Falcone] Always gave plenty of detail about treatment options and cause of infertility, being endometriosis. Waited patiently while my husband and I thought through things during appointments to answer our questions. Spoke to me directly after surgery to explain how it went and what was found. He was always prepared and seemed to know exactly what was going on with us at each visit.
[Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center is on a] Large hospital campus so it makes it a little hard to find parking and the correct building. I was always called early for my appointments and never had to wait more than 10 minutes. Doctor and nurses came into the room quickly.... [the nurses] Were very aware of how difficult this situation is and how hard it is to hear a diagnosis. Always compassionate. Talked on the phone often and always responded to my emails. Very patient and answered any questions I had.

He [Dr. Tomasso Falcone] described everything clearly and let me know what to expect over the next few months. When I described my symptoms, he listened to each one. He gave me a few months and told me realistically what my chances were for each one. He even showed me previous results and % numbers.... I had a laparoscopy surgery to check for endometriosis.
The clinic [Cleveland Clinic Fertility Center] is in a big, crowded area. Parking is in a garage and it's tight in there. Inside, it's very modern and wait times are small. Everyone is friendly and respectful of your privacy. The hospital is clean and well-staffed... She [the nurse] called a few days later to make sure I was healing good. Also, she described my before and after care very clearly.
