Dr Alexander is very personable and is easily available for communication. She throughly discusses her treatment plans and eases your mind by answering questions. She is makes it a point to know your history and guides a pathway to success...[she] led me to a successful transfer of OE after our zoom apt to discuss options. Not all frozen transfer protocols are successful, and she used her experience to get me ti transfer the 1st time. For this transfer I requested her for all of my monitoring apts.
[MCRM Fertility] could do better to follow the patients’ natural cycles vs forcing into a particular schedule or set of rules...Sometimes the coordinators are busy and may not follow up in a timely manner with results. I’ve had to personally request them knowing they had the results and did not supply in a timely fashion...I’ve encountered a few of the nurse coordinators. All but one have been completely compassionate and amazing
How was your experience with Vinita Alexander at MCRM Fertility?
Dr Alexander may be newer to the mcrm practice, but she has gained tremendous knowledge from her experience with WashU. She is approachable and listens to her patients. As far as I can tell, I’ve not had conflicts with her time if she also treats in Tulsa. This is not the case with her partners whose time is very much divided bw the clinics. Dr Alexander was a beacon of hope when my transfer cycles were continuously cancelled by a practice partner. My coordinator suggested that she may be a better fit for me and I couldn’t be happier. Dr Alexander led me to a successful transfer of OE after our zoom apt to discuss options. Not all frozen transfer protocols are successful, and she used her experience to get me ti transfer the 1st time. For this transfer I requested her for all of my monitoring apts. I learned seeing my dr is key for my success and understanding. The ultrasound tech or nurse are great, but cannot and are not allowed to give full interpretation of what is happening. Monitoring apts are vital and I think it’s vital my dr is there to talk me through on the milestones of treatment. Since switching, I’ve also recc her to another friend/patient who has happy in her switch from another partner to Dr Alex. My own eggs were not successful as an older pt. We have since moved ti donor eggs and are preparing for transfer now. I have so much less stress and higher confidence with Dr Alexander than my previous experience. Even during my oe transfer and prp, she gracefully and very competently breached my cervix with ease for a smooth transfer. I am excited for our future as parents, and cannot recommend Dr Alexander enough!

Dr Alexander pays attention to each patients needs. Not all of us fit the mold and sometimes our bodies run on their own time and schedule. Dr Alexander understands this and follows through to make sure you get the care you need and when.
Describe your experience with your nurse at MCRM Fertility.
I’ve encountered a few of the nurse coordinators. All but one have been completely compassionate and amazing. These nurses are your lifeline, especially if your dr is not available for communication. Dr Alex is amazing in the regard to communication and listening. She knows her patients, you are never a number with her!
Describe your experience with MCRM Fertility.
Mcrm could do better to follow the patients’ natural cycles vs forcing into a particular schedule or set of rules. In other pts I’ve encountered who are new to IVF, I feel like there is lack of full communication about options and treatments. I knew to ask and made it a point to understand what I could instead of just accepting face value. It’s super important to meet your coordinator in person or zoom to feel comfortable and ask the questions.
