How was your experience with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr Skora explained everything in detail before we started Stims and was always available to answer any questions I had. We had 2 failed FETs and he explained what testing he recommended and why. I never had to wait long to schedule a zoom follow up with him. We used his recommendations and had success with our 3rd FET. He was genuinely excited at our first ultrasound. I will always recommend Dr Skora to anyone!

Describe the protocols Daniel Skora used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
For Stims I used birth control, Menopur, Gonal F and an HCG trigger for retrieval. I stimmed for 10 days and retrieved 31 eggs. We ended up with 8 frozen embryos and 6 tested normal. For FET I used birth control, Lupron, estrogen pills, PIO, baby aspirin and z pack antibiotics. I always needed an extra week on estrogen due to thin lining and needed both oral and vaginal estrogen. I also had a testing cycle with an ERA, Emma/Alice, and ReceptivaDX tests and surgical Hysteroscopy between 2 and 3rd FETs.

Dr Skora's bedside manner is really great. For a doctor that is obviously high volume he spends the time to really get to know his patients. He always has a smile on his face and if you have a question he has an answer for you. He is always willing to have a follow up phone call or telehealth within a week...He respects his patients time and expects that they will respect his. The wait in the waiting room is never more that 15 minutes as a result.
Fertility Specialists of Texas has an eSET policy in place...Great clinic. High volume center so don't expect to be seen for hours...Sometimes hard to get in touch with financials. Accept a wide range of insurances and the lab is in network. All the doctors are highly qualified...Dr Skora's bedside manner is really great.

How was your experience with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Dr Skora is am amazing physician. He is very efficient. I can see how some can find this to be short. He respects his patients time and expects that they will respect his. The wait in the waiting room is never more that 15 minutes as a result. I have never seen such a well run clinic. He is very to the point but also takes care to answer any questions you may have.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
If you are looking for a doctor to spend hours with you, this isn't the doctor. He cuts to the meat of the issue and has a plan in place. He will review all your records before your visit. He is always prepared. Come with questions and he will answer them.

Describe the protocols Daniel Skora used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
We did a "normal" IVF cycle with medium dosing meds per Dr Skora. It was an atagonist cycle. With a male factor fertility situation, he felt that this would be best for us. And it was!

Katryce was great. Easy to get in touch with and had answers to my questions.
Describe your experience with Fertility Specialists of Texas.

Describe Daniel Skora's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
Fertility Specialists of Texas has an eSET policy in place. I did want to have twins. Dr Skora himself has twins. But he explained to me that it has to do with insurance policies that limit how many they can do and even now with gestational carriers they have to limit these also.

I was not pleased with Dr. Skora's bedside manner or his ability to fully explain my plan/protocol. He would describe the process and I would ask a question and he would not explain why. This made me lose confidence in his knowledge and judgment because if you can't explain why you are doing things a certain way, then why would I trust you? I am a physician but I wanted him to explain every step to me as if I had no medical background. Unfortunately, he was unable to answer even basic questions...did not have great bedside manner, barely even said "hi" to me when he came in the room to do my ultrasound
I scheduled a new appointment with a different doctor at the [Fertility Specialists of Texas] Frisco location...The day before the appointment they called to inform me that they needed to reschedule my appointment because they were moving offices to a different side of the building. Very incovenient. I am done with FST at this point...Labwork and tests came back quickly. There was not a very long wait in the waiting room. They were very efficient on the days that I was there. The nurses were nice and compassionate. If it were not for the physician, I would recommend this place to other women in my predicament.

Ask questions and make sure you are happy with the response. Get a second opinion if needed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
I felt that I was definitely treated like a number. Dr. Skora did not have great bedside manner, barely even said "hi" to me when he came in the room to do my ultrasound. He explained what his plan and protocol would be for me but he was unable to answer any of my questions. I asked questions because I wanted understand why we would do one thing over another option. I like to understand what is being done to me and why.
Describe the protocols Daniel Skora used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with DOR so the plan was to start me on oral contraceptives prior to starting IVF. I asked him why he would start me on oral contraceptives since I read that it can be counterproductive in patients with DOR. His response was simply, "Oh well we don't have to use oral contraceptives". I did not like this response. I want to have confidence in my doctor, therefore, I expect him to be more decisive, explain his reasoning, and stand soundly on his reasoning. (Not change the plan because a simple question was asked). He had a very dry demeanor with me and was not very affable.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Specialists of Texas. (Assigned nurse: Unsure)

I scheduled a new appointment with a different doctor at the Frisco location. The appointment date was 3 months out.

[Dr. Daniel Skora] respectful of me and my partner, who is a trans woman...When we started care and reviewed our labs, he offered us the choice of IUI or IVF due to male factor subfertility. I am still fertile with a great AFC, but have diminished ovarian reserve for my age (I am 28 and my partner is 33). My partner's sperm was right on the edge of recommending straight to IVF, so we chose IVF due to a higher chance of success, overall diminished cost compared to several IUI cycles + potential IVF, and my partner desiring to start HRT.
IVF with ICSI including FET overall cost is about $17,000 [at Fertility Specialists of Texas]...Strengths: The docs are very personable and skilled as far as I have seen!...LGBTQ friendly! The clinic is clean and efficient, easy to navigate. Staff was all friendly and want to help you. I would definitely recommend. Weaknesses: Expensive, but not any more than most places. Billing team a little disorganized but they are responsive and will help you!
How was your experience with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
He was very direct and clear but empathetic. Explained everything thoroughly and treated us as equals in our care. I really enjoy his easygoing and nonjudgmental demeanor. Dr Skora's intelligence and kind personality both come across in his care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Be informed and ready to talk about your options and questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
As a midwife, I have very high expectations for my care providers, and Dr Skora met all of them. He takes the time at each appointment to explain your options and procedures. Additionally, he and his staff were all very respectful of me and my partner, who is a trans woman. We did not have to worry about being judged or misgendered in his office.
Describe the protocols Daniel Skora used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Still in the process of treatment! When we started care and reviewed our labs, he offered us the choice of IUI or IVF due to male factor subfertility.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
IVF with ICSI including FET overall cost is about $17,000. Medications, anesthesia, etc. are billed separately, so about another $8,0000 I am estimating.
Describe Daniel Skora's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Specialists of Texas.
He prefers to only transfer one embryo, at least in my case. I am not sure if it would be different for someone older or with other health factors.
