We decided to take Dr. Huber's advice to transfer both embryos, since my body is a better incubator than in the laboratory. At this point in our journey, that made more sense to me as well...He was present for many of the ultrasounds to have immediate information for himself, and able to provide us an explanation of the results. He was VERY professional, but also was on a level for us to feel comfortable with him. He always took as much time as we needed, and never felt rushed!... thought outside the box, and had many "options" for another cycle; if one thing wasn't working, he'd go to Plan B, etc. We had not experience that in the previous two years of IVF cycles. We knew right away we needed his energy and expertise that not everyone fits inside the same box. An
I had one primary IVF RN coordinator throughout my process [at Fertility Institute of New Orleans]. She was VERY educated with the IVF process, medication, and able to explain things to us well. I don't feel like I was provided information on my lab results, like I should have been. I usually had to ask for the information, and learned that along the way...I had to remind them to test my thyroid, and ask if I still needed to stay on medication...In total of all of our medications and 6 rounds of IVF, we spend over $100,000, all out of pocket. Each cycle was a different cost, discussed with the finance department. Our first cycle was the most expensive, about $20,000. Each cycle, our meds cost between $5-8,000.00
How was your experience with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
We felt at ease with him immediately. We went for a consult with Dr Huber, after having minimal success with another Dr. Dr. Huber thought outside the box, and had many "options" for another cycle; if one thing wasn't working, he'd go to Plan B, etc. We had not experience that in the previous two years of IVF cycles. We knew right away we needed his energy and expertise that not everyone fits inside the same box. And it worked! We are forever grateful for his willingness to try something new with us. I really do not have anything negative to say about Dr. Huber. I continue to occasionally contact him with updates of my pregnancy even though we have graduated from our fertility clinic, and he seems genuinely happy for us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
This was the third fertility doctor we had consulted/worked with during our 2.5 years of IVF cycles. He had the most "fire" within him and really take everything in our case into consideration. I think all of the doctors are good and have passion for what they do, but he seemed to take it one step farther. He was always referencing studies and the latest research. My advice would be: If you have any doubt about him, consult with another dr and you'll see the difference, like we did. We wished we would have changed sooner.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
Dr. Huber always called us by our names, wasn't looking on our chart to remember my name, was ALWAYS there for us, having empathy of what we are going through, an AMAZING passion to be successful for us, and really wanted to be involved in our case. He was present for many of the ultrasounds to have immediate information for himself, and able to provide us an explanation of the results. He was VERY professional, but also was on a level for us to feel comfortable with him. He always took as much time as we needed, and never felt rushed!
Describe the protocols Warren “Jay” Huber III used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Orleans and their degree of success.
I can't remember all the specifics, but I think we have 4 "plans." If one wasnt working, we would go with another one, etc, etc. He had a master plan for everything. He explained it easy for us to understand and always answered all of our questions. He always had a good rationale to his strategy. With our previous dr., we only had one plan. I felt more comfortable that if something wasnt working with the original plan, we had some backup plans.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of New Orleans. (Assigned nurse: Lisa)
I had one primary IVF RN coordinator throughout my process. She was VERY educated with the IVF process, medication, and able to explain things to us well. I don't feel like I was provided information on my lab results, like I should have been. I usually had to ask for the information, and learned that along the way. I also dont feel like I was always told an accurate account of how my cycle was going. Beside the IVF coordinator, I felt like the other nurses treated it just like a business. My emotions ran high being there and going through this, and I just dont think I got the compassion I needed there from them.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of New Orleans.
I think the clinic has an overall good reputation. I REALLY liked the lab where I had my egg retrieval and transfer. They had so much compassion and were very kind!!! I received phone calls with results in a very timely manner. Some things were explained well, other things were not. You had to know the right questions to ask, but you didnt always know the questions to ask. I am glad I started taking notes of each visit, so I could reference it if needed. The bills that they sent me in the mail were AWFUL, explaining why I owed more money. I know this sounds stupid, but we paid everything out of pocket, over $100,000, and I felt like the cashier/check out person had no sensitivity of the costs, and understanding the emotions of spending so much money. I just did not have a good experience with her. I felt rushed and not explained my bills when she said I owed extra money. Overall, I was satisfied with the clinic, minus the compassion and explaining things well.

Dr. Huber and his staff make it a point to know each of their patients...I've done (4) IUIs with Dr. Huber. We tweaked the meds for each cycle to help give us the best chance with the next one. After our first failed FET, he suggested testing that would help us get it right the next time. We never felt pressured to do anything. In fact, we felt relieved he was such a supporter of our decisions....
I love everything about the clinic [Fertility Institute of New Orleans] except for the patient portal. It's not the most user-friendly platform. There is an app you can download but that seems worse than the website. It's not terrible and gets the job done. It's just not the best...all the nurses in the clinic are amazing. They share the same sentiment as Dr. Huber and make us feel like family. They want to know how our weekend was or what we have planned next. It's never just strictly business. they want to know and help us as people...
How was your experience with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
Dr. Huber genuinely cares for his patients. He wants to get to know you as a person, not just another number. He cheers in our successes and he cries in our heartaches. He has a way of explaining each step so that we understanding what's happening. We never feel rushed or forgotten while in his care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
Don't be afraid to tell him you don't understand. He started explaining things to us in football terms because that what we understood. He wants to make sure you are always comfortable with whatever decision is being made. You cannot go wrong with him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
Dr. Huber and his staff make it a point to know each of their patients. He remembers candid conversations we held from previous visits. He's genuinely concerned with our well-being. Our heartaches are his heartaches. He makes us feel seen and understood in a journey that is less than ideal.

Dr. Huber's bedside manner is really what sold me. I was filled with anticipation and nervousness on my way to my initial consultation and all those fears were put to ease once my husband and I met him. He spent an hour with us going through what he anticipated our process would entail based on my past medical history, why he thought certain routes would work best for me based on his experience along with current studies and research that supported his reasoning.
The [Fertility Institute of NO] appointments were easy to schedule, I never waited long to be seen. Everything was handled very professionally with kindness...The nursing staff was great and kind throughout the whole process and I felt like I had my own personal cheering squad supporting me in becoming pregnant...She [finance dept] was very kind and as far as costs, everything went through my insurance and anything out of pocket I paid for
How was your experience with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
Dr. Huber's bedside manner is really what sold me. I was filled with anticipation and nervousness on my way to my initial consultation and all those fears were put to ease once my husband and I met him. He spent an hour with us going through what he anticipated our process would entail based on my past medical history, why he thought certain routes would work best for me based on his experience along with current studies and research that supported his reasoning. Once I started became a regular patient, I would see him pretty frequently either for ultrasounds, procedures or to go over my latest test results, etc. Each time all my questions were answered and any test results were explained thoroughly and I never felt rushed. Even when I would call the office to answer a question either he or a nurse would call me back quickly but no later than the end of day. In addition, once I became pregnant and was cleared to leave and continue my prenatal care with my obgyn a big part of me wish I could have stayed his patient throughout my pregancy because that's how much I appreciated his patience and understanding throughout the entire fertility process.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
I understand the fear of going to see a fertility specialist because it's not an easy decision, but all I can say is don't wait any longer because I can assure you Dr. Huber will put all your fears at ease and really take the time to get to know you. What else can I say? I am one of his success stories and will forever be grateful that he gave me the chance to have my baby girl. I started seeing him at the beginning of June and became pregnant by July.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans?
To say I loved Dr. Huber would be an understatement, I had seen multiple OBGYNs and none took the time to really evaluate my case or get to know me and my husband as much as Dr. Huber did. Specifically, I have always struggled with anxiety and especially during such a stressful time as dealing with infertility, my anxiety was higher than normal. During this time every question or concern I presented to Dr.Huber was answered with kindness and my feelings were never downplayed.
Describe the protocols Warren “Jay” Huber III used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of New Orleans and their degree of success.
I began my treatment in June which began with a string of routine tests to see the age of my eggs, how many I was producing each cycle, also I completed a test to see that all my reproductive system was working properly i.e. uterus, fallopian tubes, hormone levels, etc. In addition, my husband's sperm was tested contemporaneously. All of these tests were used to see what exactly my body was doing each cycle and what was preventing me from conceiving. It was confirmed my PCOS was the culprit causing my body to produce 3x as many eggs compared to the average and none were maturing naturally. In addition, my body was not ovulating properly. As such, my first month, I tried an injection to trigger my body to ovulate with no results. On my second month, I took letrozole (sister of clomid) with an injection to trigger ovulation along with timed intercourse which worked!

Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of New Orleans.
Honestly, I have no complaints. The appointments were easy to schedule, I never waited long to be seen. Everything was handled very professionally with kindness and in the end, I left with what I wanted a pregnancy so I will always be grateful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Warren “Jay” Huber III at Fertility Institute of New Orleans.
Ms. Judy, who handled all the financials was the best. She was very kind and as far as costs, everything went through my insurance and anything out of pocket I paid for. Costs varied depending on the procedure but for me typically each visit came along with a co-pay.

Dr. Huber's bedside manner was extraordinary. He took the time to read my case filed from beginning to end before he met with me. With his deliverance and knowledge, he made feel like I was his only patient...patient, showed compassion, as well as made sure to assure me that they were nothing I did wrong to put me in this position. He stated clear facts and ways to improve my situation, which most doctors did not clearly state. He made me feel comfortable.
[Fertility Institute of New Orleans] was clean and the environment was subtle. The layout was ok and the equipment was top of the line. In the waiting room, I think more pamphlets should be available to read. Parking is not all that great but the clinic is in a small... nurses were very professional and treated me like a human person. They showed compassion, patience, and were extremely nice...
