I felt as if Dr. Saleh was able to listen to what we wanted, what we were concerned about and provide clear communication to us regarding the whole process of IVF. I never felt unsure about what was coming next. Although we didn’t have success with our first cycle, I am looking forward to having him see us through this again. I completely trust him as a professional. More than that, I feel like he genuinely cares about us.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Don’t feel silly asking questions. He will answer all of them!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
I felt like Dr. Saleh was caring and kind in all interactions with us. He understands the difficulty and struggles of infertility and helps you to feel like you are heard and all of your concerns are considered and addressed.
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
From what I remember, I started on 150 of Gonal-F and ramped up to 225 for the last few days of stims. I stimmed for 10 days prior to egg retrieval, using cetrotide 3 days before and HCG trigger shot 2 days prior. After the egg retrieval, I started on progesterone in oil and suppository until my embryo transfer and two weeks after. Throughout they cycle I was also taking a low dose steroid and I believe an antibiotic for part of the time. My protocol was very straight forward as our current diagnosis is male factor infertility.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Lisa)
Everyone was very personable and knew us by name. It felt like we were part of their family!
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
I think their strengths are helping patients feel like a person and not a number. It’s nice being at a clinic where you have one doctor and he comes to greet you in the waiting room if he’s available to. I did find some of the communication to be off on the day of the embryo transfer and the beta HCG testing day, but it was minor in the grand scheme of it all.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
$9450 for the IVF cycle (monitoring, egg retrieval, embryo transfer). We did get a discount for being a health professional. $750 mock embryo transfer and ultrasound $500 anesthesiologist for egg retrieval
Describe Walid Saleh's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of Texas.
We transferred two embryos, because unfortunately by day 5 that was all we had left. The others had stopped growing. I would again transfer two if I had the option.

Overall, I have really liked Dr. Saleh. He's honest about what my future looks like as a patient and is contagiously hopeful. ... He does move kind of quickly and in the beginning I often felt like I left the appointment with tons of questions. ... He said he didn't like doing IUI with injectables because it increases the chance of multiples and he likes to avoid that increased chance.

How was your experience with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
I really like Dr. Saleh. He's very nice. My husband is currently in medical school and he jokes with my husband every time we are there. He is always happy and energetic and hopeful about my future as a patient. He does move kind of quickly and in the beginning I often felt like I left the appointment with tons of questions. Even in an appointment, he is in and out super fast. It isn't that he doesn't want to answer our questions, because when I ask questions he is always gives willing and helpful answers. Our first consultation was great because he drew out what I should expect on a piece of paper and I still refer to it sometimes. Overall, I have really liked Dr. Saleh. He's honest about what my future looks like as a patient and is contagiously hopeful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
If you are a person like me that loves questions, write down your questions and before Dr. Saleh or the nurses get started, ask them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
I felt like every time I went to the clinic the nurses and Dr. Saleh celebrated the little achievements with me. Whether it was good thickness of lining or my body was responding well to clomid, they always were hopeful, excited, and happy about those results. Even when I received negative tests, the nurses just encouraged me to continue having hope because we weren't out of options yet.
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
At our consultation, Dr. Saleh said that there were different places to start; clomid alone, clomid with iui, iui with injectables, then ivf. The higher you go on that scale the more expensive and more invasive the protocol. He said he didn't like doing IUI with injectables because it increases the chance of multiples and he likes to avoid that increased chance. So my husband and I decided that we would do IUI with clomid. I was on 5 pills of 50 mg of clomid starting on day 5 of my cycle, ultrasound at day 13 (because my eggs were slower to mature), and then IUI around day 14. He would have me trigger and then 24 hours or less later he would do the IUI. I asked why he didn't do the IUI after 36 hours, cause I had heard mixed reviews online, he said he wanted the sperm to be there when the egg was released. So far, the past two IUIs have been unsuccessful, and currently waiting for the results for number 3.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I love the nursing staff. Heather is the nurse I have seen more and she is just wonderful! She's always positive and super helpful. She's very good at answering all of my questions and helping out with my worries. If I ever call back with other answers, she never dismisses them or me. She always answers everything I ask with compassion and thoughtfulness. She's great! Lisa was also great when we saw her, but like I said, we haven't had much contact with her.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
Strengths are the staff. They are wonderful! They're the whole reason we are going to that clinic. Even the receptionists are sweet and lovable. The clinic is in an older hospital, so it's pretty old looking too. I wouldn't have thought much about it, but the clinic my sister goes to and others I have seen are spa-like and beautiful, which is quite different than this clinic. Wait time has definitely been a weakness in our eyes. Sometimes we get to the clinic and they take us back right away, and sometimes we wait a really long time. The other day we waited for almost an hour after our scheduled appointment time to go back to our ultrasound appointment! I don't know if it is just us or if that is the norm at fertility clinics, but it seems like an insane amount of time to wait.

Dr. Saleh has shown me that compassion is not an unattainable expectation and he treats me like a person and not a check list...the tests have shown that we will need an egg donor, so we're still at the beginning stages of this particular journey. She has gone for basic and genetic testing and our next steps are meds and retrieval.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Be open. Dr. Saleh has great advice and a kind tone. He believes un possibilities and, in a situation such as infertility where it can be a long, hard road, he allows you to see the light at the end of, what could be, a very long tunnel.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Dr. Saleh is the 3rd and best Doctor I've seen over these 6 years of unexplained infertility , then an warly menopause diagnosis and all the emotions and heartache woven into all that, this office has shown more care and understanding and genuine help than the others by far
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
Dr. Saleh is our 3rd Infertility Specialist and the tests have shown that we will need an egg donor, so we're still at the beginning stages of this particular journey. She has gone for basic and genetic testing and our next steps are meds and retrieval.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Heather Jackson )
Very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. Very understanding and really on top of everything and can answer all of my panicky questions! Very nice to be with this team
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
I think SHER DALLAS is the best clinic you'd be lucky to find. I feel some of the clinics strengths are that they know what they're talking about! They are knowledgeable on current procedures and know your concerns before you ask. They are abreast of a wealth of information and everyone is very kind. The only weakness that I think this clinic poses is the looks of the office.. I think it could be more comfortable and less stark. Beyond that, SHER is a great facility
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
I think Fertility treatments are extremely overpriced and unattainable for most who desperately want it, so with that being considered, it is as affordable as it can be and they're great about billing in a way that's convenient for both parties
Describe Walid Saleh's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of Texas.
Yes, I was told that, with my particular situation, we would mist likely opt for multiple (2) embryo transfer

We decided to see Dr Saleh after recommendations from several friends. The RE we had been seeing prior to Dr Saleh was not always available and I felt like a number in their practice. Dr Saleh is an excellent doctor - he listens, is always available for questions. Dr Saleh does all ultrasounds and procedures himself vs having sonographers and nurses - I really feel this helps with the quality of care and providing the best protocol. We are so pleased with Dr Saleh - we are in the middle of our first IVF cycle and are optmistic that we will have a baby.

Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
We are in the middle of our first IVF cycle. I am 40 and have been trying to get pregnant for several years. Dr Saleh suspected I have an egg quality issue. We did a cycle with Lupron, Gonal F and menopur. After retrieval and ISCI fertilization of 12 eggs, we had 8 make it to blast. We also did PGS screening; we have one good embryo and are optimistic for our frozen transfer in a few weeks.

We love Dr. Saleh! I don't believe we could have picked a better Dr. in our area. Well sorta our area, we drive 4 hours to see him, defiantly worth it. Great bedside manor. Put it this way, this past November I happen to be ovulating on Thanksgiving, I took the month off so he could have family time. This is how much I respect this man. He is amazing!!... We started off with ultra sound to check for cyst's around cycle day 3. then started clomid day 3 for 5 days. Once positive ovulation we went in for IUI the next day. Came in had the procedure, for me was cycle day 12 or 13. Then back for blood test in 12 days. After the negative results we would start over again, ultra sounds, clomid, Ovulation, IUI & then negative tests. We did this for 5 months.

The clinic is in Medical city, so I parked in 1st paring garage off of Forest Ln. Get on the second flood in parking garage near the back, go up the first set of stairs to get out, and you are right at the C entry. Go strait in elevator to 6th ? ha I always forget if its 6th or 4th. Pretty sure 6th floor, then go to the left! Yes, we had a very hard time finding it at first. So here you go!!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
Well, we're paying cash for all of our treatments. With that being said I am very appreciative of these prices. Ultra Sound $250ish IUI $500 includes Semen analysis, wash and the procedure. Trigger Shot (Walgreens) $350 HCG $35 I'm sure I'm missing something.

Doctor Walid Saleh is very nice and gentle with his patient. He tried alot for me even though it didn't work out, he was hurt and disappointed. He treated me well and understood my Infertility problem... I used the Menopur, Gonal-F, PIO, Lupron. My Natural Killer cells were killing the hormones introduced to my body so Gonal-f was increased to the highest dose but my eggs only increased a bit.

I appreciated Dr. Saleh' candor and honest assessment of my outcome... he tests first for issues that may impact the success of treatment rather than down the road. He has a cheerful disposition and I really appreciated only being seen by him at each appointment.... My protocol began 1 month prior to retrieval. The first five days, I took a prenatal, BCP, and baby aspirin. The next week, I added Lupron for 5 days and 5 units the last 2. No BCP for last 2 days also. For the next 4 days I added Cetrotide and had a baseline ultrasound and E2. The following 6 days, I added Estrace. The next 3 days I took Lovenox, prednisone and Gonal-F. The next 6 days I continued previous medications adding in Menopur. Day before retrieval, I only continued prednisone, prenatal, Cetrotide, and HCG. Retrieval day, I took prednisone, prenatal, E2V, and antibiotic. I also did acupuncture 3 months before retrieval and before retrieval and transfer. The goal was to allow me to produce as many quality eggs for my age group.

The waiting room environment could be improved, but you're in the right place.

I always met with Dr. Saleh only unlike with my initial RE. He did the ultrasounds personally and not a nurse. I felt like a person and not a number.

Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
Strengths: competent support staff, excellent doctor, great lab. Weaknesses: Decor could be updated.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
Two fresh cycles with 2 egg retrievals and FETs unlimited during cycle, ultrasounds, monitoring, ISCI, and one year of storage was about $21,000 with cash discount. Cycles had to be used in 6 months. I also had a saline ultrasound and mock embryo transfer which was another $700. Medications separate.
Describe Walid Saleh's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Sher Fertility of Texas.
No. Due to my age, I was given the option to transfer 2, 5 day embryos or one. It was completely up to me and Dr. Saleh went over the clinic's statistics with me before I made my decision. I never felt pressured to go one way or the other.

I’m 40 with DOR. Dr. Saleh wanted to begin with an “aggressive protocol.” I stayed on stimulation medicine for about 16 days. Dr. Saleh was patient with my body’s response. Because of this he was able to retrieve more eggs than I expected... sat down with my husband and I several times to discuss the process, outcome, and next steps. He patiently described everything and did so with such positivity and compassion.

How was your experience with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Dr. Saleh is extremely knowledgeable about the IVF process and has a true passion for his job. Through the ups and downs Dr. Saleh adjusted as needed and stayed positive. He has incredible bedside manner!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Dr. Saleh sat down with my husband and I several times to discuss the process, outcome, and next steps. He patiently described everything and did so with such positivity and compassion.
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
I’m 40 with DOR. Dr. Saleh wanted to begin with an “aggressive protocol.” I stayed on stimulation medicine for about 16 days. Dr. Saleh was patient with my body’s response. Because of this he was able to retrieve more eggs than I expected.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Sher Fertility of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Heather Jackson)
Heather met with me and provided a calendar that clearly communicated the protocol. She went over the process in an easy to understand way. I emailed with questions and she ALWAYS answered in a timely manner. Many times within an hour or two and weekends. I’m not sure how Heather does it all. She made me feel like I was her only patient.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
From the doctor, nurses, protocol coordinator, insurance contact, to front desk, EVERYONE is nice and helpful. You feel like everyone has a genuine interest in helping you create a family. No matter who my contact was for different types of questions, it was always answered quickly.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Sher Fertility of Texas.
All monitoring appointments had to be made before noon. The majority of the time, appointments were exactly on schedule. He ran about 15 min late once and profusely apologized.

Dr. Saleh clearly knows what he is doing; there was never a time when his office wasn’t full, and I talked to several patients who had traveled from out of state to see him! At every appointment, he would make sure to take the time to talk us through our options and next steps. He was positive and encouraging and never doubted we could get pregnant.

How was your experience with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
Dr. Saleh clearly knows what he is doing; there was never a time when his office wasn’t full, and I talked to several patients who had traveled from out of state to see him! At every appointment, he would make sure to take the time to talk us through our options and next steps. He was positive and encouraging and never doubted we could get pregnant.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
His office is always crowded so sometimes there is a wait to see him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
During our miscarriage and when I was on bedrest for our pregnancy, both Dr. Saleh and his staff called me multiple times to check on me. He was always encouraging and positive, and his staff were amazing at returning any calls or emails I had promptly.
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.
Clomid did not work for me, so after an unsuccessful round with him (and two with my OBGYN), Dr. Saleh put us on Femara with an injection when I was about to ovulate. I had to come in several times a cycle to make sure the medication was working and that the eggs were ready.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Dr. Saleh’s staff was amazing. They were always efficient, compassionate, and understanding. They returned my calls within the day and they called to check up on me when they knew I was struggling.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
The clinic and staff are very organized but very busy. Be prepared for a crowded waiting room and not always being seen on time. There was one time I waited almost an hour to see the doctor. The clinic itself is clean and inviting.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
Every time I went in for a sonogram (which was done almost every appointment), it was over $200.

How was your experience with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
I am so glad we found Dr. Saleh and went to him before any other doctors. My insurance actually would give us more coverage to go to a different doctor but after meeting Dr. Saleh we just had a gut feeling he was right. He was so thorough in his explanation of fertility issues and has such a warm demeanor and positive outlook.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
The actual office setting is pretty dated and dark...but don't let that deter you.

Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
The actual clinic is pretty dated and the waiting room is very dark. But that does not align with the quality of care you will get. You will typically interact with either Dr. Saleh, an RN and nurses that take your blood.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas.
Everything was covered by my insurance except for co-pays.

I came to his office with unknown infertility and I felt like he used doses of drugs that were too powerful for me and also didn't monitor me closely enough. ... he also didn't recommend a lot of testing to be prior to the cycle to see if anything was else was going on.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
To ask questions and always say your concerns up front. He doesn't like to run a lot of diagnostic testing and I feel like if I would have done more testing, I wouldn't have to go through another round of IVF with another doctor.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Walid Saleh at Sher Fertility of Texas?
He always had a positive attitude and was always nice to deal with.
Describe the protocols Walid Saleh used in your cycles at Sher Fertility of Texas and their degree of success.

Heather was excellent to work with, she answered all of my questions at all hours of the day.
Describe your experience with Sher Fertility of Texas.
The clinic has good communication, very compassionate and a strong desire to get you pregnant. They are reasonably priced compared to other clinics. The weakness is that I didn't respond well to his protocol, it possibly gave me poor egg quality and he also didn't recommend a lot of testing to be prior to the cycle to see if anything was else was going on.
