Dr. Balthazar is very direct and positive. She explains the reason behind everything, and assured you that you will do treatments on your time. She is incredibly knowledgeable. She listens to you and gives you options.... I had many tests done my first few appointments. I had the tube test, in which she found out my right tube was completely blocked. Following that test, I had my right tube removed under her care. Since then, I've had tests done to check my egg reserve and my genetics.
[Aspire of Texas'] Weakness: Getting an initial appointment is the hardest part. I was constantly on hold and calling repeatedly to get an appointment. Strengths: The facility is very clean. There is not a huge staff, and they are loyal, so you will he dealing with the same nurse for each visit.... Each visit with tests and blood work was around $300. My surgery was around $1500.
