Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Patel would sit with us and our charts, go over all of our labs and inform, discuss or options, treatments, future plans and what to expect...was honest and kind...husband was given the option for surgery to fix 2 vericoceles to improve sperm count...welcoming, answering all of our questions, kind and discrete, respectful of all of our wishes and concerns.
[Fort Worth Fertility] is amazing, they're all super nice, it's small and I feel like I am being seen and heard...do all of their own labs, diagnostics, and procedures in the same building which is very convenient...My primary nurse...was occasionally rude and acted like I was stupid...would give me information but I felt overwhelmed like I was doing her job for her.
How was your experience with Biren Patel at Fort Worth Fertility?
I didn't know what to expect when we started our journey. Dr Patel would sit with us and our charts, go over all of our labs and inform, discuss or options, treatments, future plans and what to expect. He was honest and kind. We never had any doubts about his capabilities or knowledge of his profession. He always comforted us when we had doubts and make us feel hopeful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Biren Patel at Fort Worth Fertility?
Ask all the questions, he he patient and will answer all of them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Biren Patel at Fort Worth Fertility?
He was very welcoming, answering all of our questions, kind and discrete, respectful of all of our wishes and concerns.
Describe the protocols Biren Patel used in your cycles at Fort Worth Fertility and their degree of success.
We started with Letrozole since clomid is hard to acquire from Pharmacy, trigger shot, and used progesterone vaginal capsules after IUI. Patel referred my husband to a reproductive Urologist due to low sperm count. My husband started clomid through the Dr he was referred to. After our first cycle failing (likely due to extremely low amount of sperm), we went with a more aggressive treatment the second round. Letrozole, Daily hormone injections, trigger shot, and progesterone vaginal capsules after IUI. Second round the sperm count was better but not great. My husband was given the option for surgery to fix 2 vericoceles to improve sperm count. So we delayed our third IUI to do this surgery.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fort Worth Fertility.
My primary nurse, I have forgotten her name, was occasionally rude and acted like I was stupid. Sometimes I did not like her. She would give me information but I felt overwhelmed like I was doing her job for her.
Describe your experience with Fort Worth Fertility.
The clinic is amazing, they're all super nice, it's small and I feel like I am being seen and heard compared to going to a larger clinic where you need a map to get anywhere. They do all of their own labs, diagnostics, and procedures in the same building which is very convenient. The only thing that I find annoying is they close for lunch and won't let you wait inside, they close the whole building.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Biren Patel at Fort Worth Fertility.
Everything had a cost that was separate. We paid for everything up front before the procedure, they had finance options and an accounting dept to speak to but we used a credit card for expenses since our insurance doesn't cover costs and had to pay our own bills.

Describe the protocols Biren Patel used in your cycles at Fort Worth Fertility and their degree of success.
We have only done testing so far. The next step is a medicated IUI cycle. He says most women are able to get pregnant this way. If my tubes are open and have good egg reserve then this is what we should try. He thinks this will work for me. I was glad he didn’t suggest going right to IVF.

Dr. Patel was kind and easy to talk to. My only concern was whether or not he really took a close look at my personal circumstance. It felt like I was treated like a patient with "unexplained" fertility with some male factor issues, when I actually should have been treated as a patient with DOR. My AMH level was never explained to me throughout the process of doing 3 IUI procedures.
This clinic will allow up to 2 embryos to be transferred at a time...Its strength is its location- central Fort Worth was convenient for me...I never had the same nurse..Weakness would be scheduling availability, front desk/billing department organization and it's a little on the higher end of pricing...About $1,200 for each IUI plus the cost of medication.

Ask to see your bloodwork results and then dig into them and ask questions about them. Stay on top of the front office to get answers about billing and scheduling appointments.

The front desk staff was not organized, appointments did not always start on time, my treatment did not feel proactive.

My first protocol was 200 mg Clomid a day and triggered with Ovidrel. The second and third were Clomid and Follistim injections with Ovidrel trigger. In the third IUI we also tried doing back-to-back days of inseminations to try to get more sperm.

I never had the same nurse so I don't even know their names.
