Dr. Lin was very thorough in his explanations, and gave us a comprehensive explanation of what he felt was our best course of action, while letting us have a say. He didn't push any unnecessary treatments on us, or additional medication, that he did not feel was beneficial. ... He was very thorough, if a bit repetitive. He never rushed us and always took the time to fully listen to and respond to questions. I really appreciate that he is up to date on the latest research and studies about fertility.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Feel free to ask questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County?
Dr. Lin was very thorough in his explanations, and gave us a comprehensive explanation of what he felt was our best course of action, while letting us have a say. He didn't push any unnecessary treatments on us, or additional medication, that he did not feel was beneficial.
Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Orange County and their degree of success.
We did letrozole and timed intercourse for three cycles, then moved onto letrozole and IUI. Letrozole started off at 5mg, but after poor response the first cycle, was upped to 7.5mg for 10 days, which produced a reasonable number of follicles. He didn't suggest IUI as he did not feel it made a significant difference but was happy to let us try.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There seemed to sometimes be a slight communication delay between the nurses and Dr. Lin, which resulted in phone calls where he did not have the latest information I provided to the client.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Orange County.
The strength is that the waiting times are very short, the billing department is great, and the waiting scheduling delay is not very long. You can usually get an appointment fairly quickly, and all ultrasounds are done in house by the doctor himself.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Wayne Lin at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
I paid my copay each visit, but nothing else was due as they are in network with my PPO. I chose to do a cash IUI, which was about $400. They also have a partner pharmacy for trigger shots, which made the cost significantly cheaper.
Describe Wayne Lin's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Centers of Orange County.
He told us he preferred to transfer singles, as technology now was good enough that he didn't want to risk multiples, even twins.

Dr. Lin was very caring and listen to us. He took the time to explain everything he was doing and his voice somehow put you at ease. He was very calm in his explanations and didn't rush us. The only thing I would've liked Dr. Lin to do is be more aggressive in treatment. I feel like it may have saved us some money and we may have had results faster.... Tell Dr. Lin exactly what you want to do and what you are comfortable with doing and what you're not.

Make sure you ask all of the questions you have, write them down before you go for your first consult. Try to arrive on time for your appointment so you will be seen on time. Tell Dr. Lin exactly what you want to do and what you are comfortable with doing and what you're not.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Wayne Lin at Reproductive Partners Medical Group?
Originally we were going to see Dr. Lane Wong, and we didn't know he was retiring and leaving his practice to Dr. Lin. From the very beginning that Dr. Lin started to care for us, we notice how caring he was. He took the time to listen to us, and told us to hold on to hope.
Describe the protocols Wayne Lin used in your cycles at Reproductive Partners Medical Group and their degree of success.
My wife was the one who knows exactly what the treatments were but I know we used a lot of pills, sometimes injections and we did several IUIs.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I didn't really interact much with the nurses, as much as my wife did. But the interaction I did have with them was very minimal. They seems professional but not as caring as Dr. Lin.
Describe your experience with Reproductive Partners Medical Group.
The clinic was clean, but the furniture was very old. I didn't appreciate that personal information was given out in front of other nurses, staff and sometimes around other patients. I think it was just the way the clinic was set up that it wasn't very private
