Describe the protocols Mark Sanchez used in your cycles at Florida Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I started our first ivf in November 2021 after years of TTC. I have PCOS and blocked fallopian tubes. We started the stim process for the egg retrieval which occurred in November. We got our embryos tested for PGT which resulted in 5 normal embryos. In January we transferred a female embryo which resulted in failure. In February and March , we did an ERA test and RPL blood panel. The ERA came back receptive and 129 3+/- hours. So now we are getting ready for our second FET on 4/26/22.

I took clomid and had a trigger shot of ovidril for both of my IUI’s [with Dr. Mark Sanchez]. The first iui was negative. The second iui resulted in a chemical pregnancy...explained what we were dealing with and what our options were. He kept it real and didn’t sugar coat it... He took the time to make sure we understood what we were up against as well as the iui procedure. I felt very comfortable having him as my doctor. He was very nice and very professional.
The clinic [Florida Fertility Institute] was very efficient and very professional. They explained the costs of different procedures. I had no problems scheduling various appointments.

He [Dr. Mark Sanchez] really does his best to make you feel comfortable in your current situation. Personally, I'd prefer a little more explanation though. His bedside manners are great. I feel like he truly cares and wants you to have a successful pregnancy.... [FL Fertility Institute is] Super expensive and they charge a 2% credit card fee, which I really don't like. The staff is all great though - Very happy with the care I've received thus far.

Pretty expensive (in my opinion). An ultrasound is $250 and the IUI procedure is right around $600.

He [Dr. Sanchez] will tell you how it is, good or bad, so you need to be prepared for the truth...The second round my meds were doubled. We ended up with 3 embryos and froze all. The next 2 transfers ended up negative. Dr. Sanchez recommended a blood panel and Endometrial Receptivity Assay (ERA). The ERA told us that I was one of 20% of women who had a pre-receptive lining and we should be transferring the embryos 2 days later. My third egg retrieval we ended up with 5 embryos. The ERA was correct and I am now 8 weeks pregnant, saw the heartbeat last week 😁!
Everyone at the clinic [Florida Fertility Institute] was always were friendly and professional. They answered patiently every single question we had, sometimes more than once. They worked with us in regards to insurance and payment issues. The wait time was at times longer than expected but the office is at least a comfortable environment to wait...very friendly, attentive, and genuinely seemed to care about our best interests.
How was your experience with Mark Sanchez at Florida Fertility Institute?
Dr. Sanchez was up front and honest about all our testing and treatments. He has a good sense of humor keeping the visits light but still in a professional manner. I would recommend him to anyone looking for infertility treatment.

Describe the protocols Mark Sanchez used in your cycles at Florida Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My first round was the minimum dosage. We ended up with 2 embryos, did a fresh transfer, got a positive, but ended in chemical pregnancy. The second round my meds were doubled. We ended up with 3 embryos and froze all. The next 2 transfers ended up negative. Dr. Sanchez recommended a blood panel and Endometrial Receptivity Assay (ERA). The ERA told us that I was one of 20% of women who had a pre-receptive lining and we should be transferring the embryos 2 days later. My third egg retrieval we ended up with 5 embryos.
