How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
He knew what he was talking about. Not much information was given to me as an obese, early 30- something with PCOS. I asked questions, but often got no answers. He was nice enough, was knowledgeable, but it wasn’t always easy to listen because he wasn’t very emotionally supportive to me. I’m not sure if it was because of my size, or his judgements when looking at a woman of my size; all I can say is that I didn’t always feel welcome, or treated like a woman whom may be 140lbs. Don’t get me wrong, he was nice, but there was definitely a part of him that didn’t seem to want to truly help me. In the end, I was told that I wasn’t a candidate for much else from his office, and that my only next step was for me to lose the weight and come back after that happened. I still have questions, I still don’t understand why I don’t ovulate, when my hormones are supposedly “in normal ranges”. I was disappointed and felt left alone, and I didn’t get the answers I need to understand what is wrong with my fertility. Being a fertility doctor, I expected to get help, especially when I paid good money for it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
This doctor is good for more of a direct, no frills approach to the doctor-patient relationship.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
He didn’t give me personal care, he was warm during one of the exams, but at the end, when he told me there was nothing more he could do for me, I asked him all the questions I still do not have answers to, and his response was that I need to lose weight.
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Gave me two rounds of clomid, to try to jump start my period (annovultaion), and the second round was to do testing. Neither time did my period come fully, nor did I ovulate either time.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Ladies were wonderful and kind. Made me feel comfortable. Never felt judged.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
The office was spectacularly clean, the atmosphere there was always quiet, I wasn’t bothered, or distracted by noise. And the location was quite private. I didn’t have to worry about being embarrassed or self-conscious when walking to or from the office. The staff have their own area for parking, and there was never more than one or two couples in the office with me at any of the 6 times I went to the office for visits or testing.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
I had HMO, roughly $45 oop for each appointment. Plus testing. It wasn’t that bad, that I remember.

The entire staff is supportive. Everyone wants the same outcome, for me to have a baby. Dr. Troche has a warm bedside manner and I trust him completely.

He has a genuine interest in his patients and has staff who do the same.

Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
Clean, lots of caring staff, don’t feel like a number, they are thorough, the music they play is so random! 90s hip hop one day, early 2000s pop another. Makes me laugh and cringe. My partner produced a sample to Pink. He was not excited about that.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
All the staff new me by name. When the office becomes almost like your second home because you are there so much it’s nice to have them know who you are.
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Our situation only allowed us to do IVF. I don’t remember all the medications names but I had to do 3 shots in my tummy every day for 11 days before retrieval then after transfer day I did one shot in the bum every day until they confirmed pregnancy. During the time I started shots up to transfer day I was in the office about every other day to make sure everything was going smoothly. After they confirmed pregnancy they put me on progesterone cream to until 12 weeks to make sure I was getting the hormone.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Troche Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Kori )
She was awesome! I’m sad she isn’t there anymore. But she would answer every time I called or emailed her with questions no matter how many times I called.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
the clinic was small and it’s kind of tucked away. The first time going to the clinic we drove right past it. But as for the inside of the clinic it was always clean and quiet. They were never over booked. I never waited past my appointment time. Everyone was always happy and friendly. It was a breath of fresh air from other dr offices.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
We happened to be doing ivf on his 25 year of practice so he had a special 25% off treatment. So I believe we paid about 7000 in treatment cost.

He was never positive and I always requested for him to become more positive when he saw me. each time I saw him he said that my round is not good and its a very bad cycle but he also said it wouldn't get better. I actually did not agree considering my DOR and asked to proceed with 5 eggs retrieved. I do not feel that this doctor had my best interest at heart and was more concern with his stats.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
My best advice is when you start to get that feeling like the office doesn't really care about the overall journey you are facing, to get a second opinion. I know this is the only fertility in the West Valley but the drive is worth the feeling of comfort
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
Dr. Troche office was not personable to the needs of myself as a person. I was just a number at the location and often felt like they were just using my body as a way to get their stats up. The never communicated anything with me. I felt that my case had begun to be too hard for this center and they have given up on me. They had messed up on meds, and just kept telling me to keep going. everyone I talked to was on the same protocol, this made me feel as if my needs for my body were not considered .
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Everyday Follistim 150, Menopur 75, Preganal, Prostrogen Cream, ( sorry for the spelling)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Troche Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Laura Troche )
The nirse staff had my cycle mixed up with someone else at one point. They never called to tell me when to stop birth control and when to begin meds. It took the staff over a week and a half to come up with a calenender plan for me. Honestly, After being with my new doctor I could not imagine reliving that nightmare. If I knew now what I do, I would had saved the money and had a better chance somewhere else. The staff doesn't know what is going on, and this is why they do not tell you anything. I have no idea what my numbers were the entire IVF because they never called with updates. They just stated, No News is good news. I feel I was cheated out of my IVF cycle when I had the money.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
I think that the location is nice and the fact they have a center attached is great. I think the facility is convenient for West Valley commuters. I believe that the price is pretty reasonable . I think the office is very unorganized and that they need to work on bedside manner and work with the community to make the women who come to them feel more human. I think they need to update their research a little more and be more forward thinking to meet individual needs of all clients.

Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Treatment strategies were to get my body go ovulate with oral fertility meds (femara). Take provera for 7 days and then once a period began I was to take femara on days 5-9 of period. Get labs completed to check progesterone levels on days 21, 22 or 23. Wait for assistant to call with results. 1st round was not successful so we did the process again with the highest dose of femara. Currently waiting to do labs in another week.

How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
Dr Troche performed every ultrasound that I needed, he performed my endometrial scratch, and he performed my embryo transfer. He makes every effort to perform each procedure needed in his patients care plan.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
Learn to have faith in your physician. IVF is very difficult and even in perfect situations it doesn't always work. After all of the difficulties my husband and I endured with our first physician, Dr Troche was finally the breath of fresh air we needed to be able to continue our IVF journey.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
The difference between Dr Troche and our first IVF physician is night and day. My husband and I are so happy to be with Dr Troche's office after dealing with a year of smokescreens and confusion with our first dr. Dr. Troche takes time to explain procedures and term on your level vs expecting you preemptively to know why every medication is being prescribed. It's hard to understand alot of things when going through IVF because there are so many technical terms used that are specific to just IVF alone and unless you need to go through IVF to try and conceive, you would probably never hear of any of these medications or procedures. Dr. Troche's office is hands-down 100% transparent with all of their charges whether it be cash paying or using insurance. We are still dealing with insurance billing issues resulting from our first physician's office and it has made our IVF journey that much more of a stressful and un-enjoyable experience. We love Dr. Troche and all of his staff because they are the most kind and genuine staff to ever meet and I will forever refer anyone to Dr. Troche. He exudes compassion and you can tell that he cares about you as a patient and you are not just another dollar sign.
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
I switched to Dr Troche after my egg retrieval done at IVF Phoenix. Dr Troche used estrogen pills and progesterone injection/suppositories to build my uterine lining, prednisone to decrease inflammation, doxycycline for prophylactic bacteria treatment. My embryo transfer was a pretty standard protocol.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Troche Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Laura Troche,RN)
Laura takes as much time as needed to fully go over everything in your protocol and their schedules are very easy to read and follow. I never felt like any of the information was confusing so it was nice knowing I wasn't missing any doses or miscalculating a dose for a medication. Laura is easy to reach with any questions and she responds to emails and calls promptly.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
The office has a family feel to it, everyone makes you feel like you can ask questions at any time if you are scared or confused. They are super friendly and approachable and help answer billing/scheduling questions promptly. It's a great little independent office.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
embryo transfer was $3885 and he has offered us a discount for our next transfer when we are ready to try again.
Describe Vladimir Troche's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Troche Fertility Centers.
Most physician I think are trying to follow the SART guidelines as best as possible and with that it is recommended to do single transfers. Dr. Troche allowed us to transfer two embryos because we knew the risks and possibility of a multiple pregnancy and we were okay with that prior to the transfer.

How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
I was so happy to have found Dr. Troche and his team. They are a small fertility clinic but every person that works there shows 100% focus on me when I am there. I can tell that the clinic communicates internally very well because each person I work with knows where I am at in my process. They always cover all questions even before I knew that I would have that question. At first they were very reserved in my treatment plan until I said I wanted to be more aggressive. The next time we discussed treatment Dr. Troche understood my schedule and adjusted the treatment plan to be much more aggressive. I trust this clinic more than I have ever trusted a doctor and his team. They are wonderful!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
He was very thorough as our second doctor. Way different from our first who just wanted our money to do procedures without giving us answers. Troche took the time to explain things and wanted to focus on my husbands #'s. Once we got him up and running, we have yet to succeed so our next steps were another IUI or possible IVF preparation. Troche is very knowledgeable and experienced.
Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Clomid was used outside of any treatment such as IUI. I researched Femara being a better medication to use without much side effects. I don't recall feeling bad side effects from either medication but Troche was willing to adjust from clomid to Femara and explained the differences. He prescribed a low general dose as my body normally does what it's supposed to on its own. Gave instructions for the HCG trigger and the staff provided us with take home info so we can administer it ourselves once they saw my follicles were at an ideal size and I was ready to ovulate. IUI did not work. Once we came back for a follow up Troche wanted to focus more on my husbands morphology which at the time was 1%. He referred us to a urologist and a varicocelectomy was performed. His numbers went into the "normal" range and we decided to give ourselves time to try naturally. We are now going on 1.5 years from his procedure and are ready to try treatments again.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff was amazing. They were very patient with my anxiety and nervousness and explained things step by step.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
Great clinic, friendly staff. I wish wait times were slightly less as well as more locations in central Phoenix or west valley. Troche is great at what he does, well experienced. Time frames to get in to see him might be a little while so plan ahead.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
Insurance doesn't cover a darn thing so everything was out of pocket MINUS SA analysis. All copays were tolerable ($90 I want to say but that could have changed). I asked if they offered anytype of discounts but that was a no go. I wish a simple IUI was cheaper. Grants would be awesome, law enforcement discounts would have helped but nothing was offered. Overall it was manageable.

How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
He is blunt and honest and at first you may feel like he is being harsh, but he explains everything and when I was crying after he mentioned my weight, he sought me out and consoled me and told me it would happen, we just had to work at it. Which I did, it meant a lot and I liked that he made my husband understand that he needs to be there and support me through this entire process. He also recognized when I was being successful and acknowledged that. He always explained his reasoning behind things and was very honest about our course of treatment.

Dr Troche really took the time to listen and genuinely sought our input into the treatment plan. He told us from the beginning he would not do anything we weren’t comfortable with. I always felt our treatment plan was highly personalized just for us.... None of the IUI cycles were successful so he recommended IVF with ICSI due to my husband’s low motility and morphology. We did stimulation with injections and ended up retrieving 36 eggs (28 mature) and attempted to fertilize 8 eggs.

How was your experience with Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
Dr Troche had fantastic bedside manner and really took his time with both me and my husband. He made it clear I was the priority as josh patient but definitely checked in with my husband to address any and all questions/concerns from him as well. My husband felt very comfortable with Dr Troche.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers?
Trust him and clearly state your desires and intentions. He absolutely wants to honor your wishes so let him know what they are.

Describe the protocols Vladimir Troche used in your cycles at Troche Fertility Centers and their degree of success.
Our first IUI was without any meds since we knew for sure that I ovulated every month. That was unsuccessful so the next one we did Clomid. That ended up thinning my uterine lining to much so he switched to another oral med (can’t remember the name). None of the IUI cycles were successful so he recommended IVF with ICSI due to my husband’s low motility and morphology. We did stimulation with injections and ended up retrieving 36 eggs (28 mature) and attempted to fertilize 8 eggs. 7 were successful but only 4 continued to grow after 3 days. I ended up with OHSS so we froze the 4 embryos and waited about 45 days while my body recovered. Our first transfer, the first embryo that was prepared did not survive the thawing process, so only one embryo was transferred, which resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Our second round, Dr Troche said he would be willing to transfer our remaining 2 embryos if we were ok with the idea of having twins. He explained all the risks of a twin pregnancy given my small frame and ultimately supported us in our decision to proceed. Again, however, one embryo did not survive the thawing process so only 1 embryo was transferred. This resulted in a positive pregnancy test and our first ultrasound at 7 weeks confirmed the embryo had split and I had conceived identical twins. I carried the twins all the way to my scheduled c-section date at 37 weeks and all of use ended up healthy with no complications. 2 years later I spontaneously conceived another baby who was also perfectly healthy. We then asked Dr Troche to dispose of the rest of my frozen eggs since we feel our family is complete.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Troche Fertility Centers. (Assigned nurse: Kari)
Kari was super compassionate and knowledgeable. I always felt like she was personally aware of the specifics of my case and I never felt like I could get lost in the shuffle.
Describe your experience with Troche Fertility Centers.
Very clean, organized, took care of all communication with my insurance company. I didn’t have to worry about anything!! The only thing I wish had been different is an option to pay online would have been very convenient, rather than having to pay in person or send a check via mail.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Vladimir Troche at Troche Fertility Centers.
My insurance covered about 75% of medications, and 50% of procedures associated with infertility treatment. Out of pocket we probably paid a total of about $5000 total for 3 cycles IUI and 2 cycles IVF
Describe Vladimir Troche's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Troche Fertility Centers.
He was hesitant to transfer more than one embryo at a time for me but ultimately, after explaining all risk factors and considerations, he supported our decision to transfer 2 embryos since we had already had a failed cycle of IVF.

If it wasn’t for Dr. Troche and his wonderful staff, I wouldn’t have my beautiful 3 year old son. I am very greatful for each and everyone there.... We started out with Clomid to help with ovulation. Then we moved onto a different oral medication. When those didn’t work we went to injections along with a trigger shot. That worked on the 3rd or 4th try but I miscarried. We did one more round with no luck. Then my husband and took a year off from trying. When we went back we did 2 more rounds of injections with no luck. They told me we had little chance of conceiving so we moved to IVF. First round of IVF resulted in my son.

Leading up to my IVF, my insurance covered everything. For my cycle of IVF , they some how got my medication approved through my insurance so I didn’t have to pay for that. They gave me a military discount so I only paid 8000 for my fresh cycle of IVF
Describe Vladimir Troche's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Troche Fertility Centers.
Dr. Troche only put in one embryo because he said that 2 wouldn’t be safe. He was worried about me carrying multiples and since I was only 28, he didn’t see a point to adding in more.
