She [Dr. Snegovskikh] is honest yet delicate. She never makes you feel less than, never makes you feel like a failure. She sets realistic expectations. ... When she saw I was down she was a great source of encouragement. ... I was so happy that she found another avenue and was willing to trying something unconventional. ... I had lining issues.
One weakness for me personally I think would be the financial department. Maybe it’s the amount of patients they [Women & Infants Hospital] have but sometimes they can take longer to get back to you. They are very efficient, the monitoring appointments can be quick. However the 7:00am to 7:15am timeslot can be very busy. ... The nurses here work so hard. ...

How was your experience with Victoria Snegovskikh at Women & Infants Hospital?
I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Victoria. She is honest yet delicate. She never makes you feel less than, never makes you feel like a failure. She sets realistic expectations. I feel Dr. Victoria truly understood my struggle and with every ounce thought she would succeed at getting me pregnant. When she saw I was down she was a great source of encouragement. She was always willing to speak with me, returning calls within the same day. She truly listens to what her patients want and works together with the couple. She is an amazing doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Victoria Snegovskikh at Women & Infants Hospital?
The entire process can take more time than expected
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Victoria Snegovskikh at Women & Infants Hospital?
I meet Dr. Victoria in 2015 when I was under the care of a previous doctor who was leaving the practice. I was currently pregnant with twins. Dr. Victoria was taking over for the doctor leaving. From the moment I met her, I felt she was very caring and warm. She seemed elated to be in the ultrasound room and seeing two sacs in my uterus. Unfortunately that pregnancy resulted in a preteen loss. I have been going to the same clinic for 10 years. I did take a four year break in between. The staff actually remembers patients names. They and the doctors were always very welcoming and understanding. It’s a clinic I feel I can call any time and have my questions answered and needs met.
Describe the protocols Victoria Snegovskikh used in your cycles at Women & Infants Hospital and their degree of success.
I was seeing one of her colleagues before I switched to her. I had lining issues. Estrace was not my best friend and didn’t help thicken my lining as it should. I tried 2 cycles with the previous doctor each time reminding him of my concerns with my lining. He increased my retrace dosage but that still did not work. When I switched to her that was again my main concern. She switched my protocol to estrogen patches and also added vaginal viagra suppositories. She explained this protocol was not the norm but it tended to work for women with lining issues. I was so happy that she found another avenue and was willing to trying something unconventional. The first time we tried this protocol I got pregnant however, it ended in miscarriage due to a blighted ovum. The second time we followed this protocol it worked! I am currently 10 weeks 6 days pregnant and fingers crossed this will be my rainbow
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have known this nursing staff for 10 years. The nurses here work so hard. They answer your questions, they perform the monitoring appointments, the do IUI’s. They call every afternoon with your next steps/plan after monitoring and blood work. The nurses are so compassionate that a few have even shed tears with me throughout some extremely difficult situations. They are your cheerleaders and the back bone of this clinic.
Describe your experience with Women & Infants Hospital.
I actually recommended this clinic to my best friend, so I think that speaks volumes as there are other options for care in my state. One weakness for me personally I think would be the financial department. Maybe it’s the amount of patients they have but sometimes they can take longer to get back to you. They are very efficient, the monitoring appointments can be quick. However the 7:00am to 7:15am timeslot can be very busy. The waiting area can get crowded.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Victoria Snegovskikh at Women & Infants Hospital.
The cost really depended on the type of cycle. For a frozen transfer it was about $4500 because I required additional monitoring and blood tests. For a conventional IVF with egg retrieval and transfer about $17,000.
Describe Victoria Snegovskikh's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Women & Infants Hospital.
She recommended a multiple embryo transfer for us. In all my transfers but 1 we had transferred 2 embryos. I got pregnant with twins once which unfortunately resulted in a preteen loss at 23 weeks due to an incompetent cervix. After which I went to Boston and had a trans abdominal cerclage placed laparoscopically. After that procedure we had transferred more than 1 embryo but only 1 took each time.

The process was frustrating and i didn’t feel like I was given specific treatment for my my PCOS. ... I found her [Dr. Snegovskikh] to be cold and not as compassionate as I needed. ... We had 16 failed cycles in a row and I didn’t feel like Dr. Victoria went out of her way to assist with our care beyond ordering another IUI. ... Don’t expect a lot of compassion and go in fully prepared to as the right questions and press her for more information. Book appointments early because there is a long wait to see her.
Clean, appointments for lab work or ultrasounds were easy to get. Parking was easy. Nurses [Women And Infants Hospital] performed all procedures so I very rarely saw the doctor. Easy location to get to. Very limited services offered such as counseling, nutrition, or holistic assistance. ... Nurses left lengthy voicemails if I missed their call and would book subsequent appointments for me, which I appreciated.

How was your experience with Victoria Snegovskikh at Women & Infants Hospital?
I wasn’t satisfied with my experience. I found her to be cold and not as compassionate as I needed. I didn’t feel like the reasons why my treatment was ineffective was fully explained. It took over 6 weeks to see her which means we missed a cycle. I didn’t feel empowered and fully confident with my experience. We had 16 failed cycles in a row and I didn’t feel like Dr. Victoria went out of her way to assist with our care beyond ordering another IUI.

There was a six week wait to see my doctor which I didn’t appreciate. When I did see her, I didn’t feel as though I came away with the information that I was seeking. The process was frustrating and i didn’t feel like I was given specific treatment for my my PCOS.
