Describe your experience with Bloom Repr Institute.
If my second cycle fails I will have questions about medicine protocols. I've heard from peers that there are alternatives to clomid with lower risk of multiples but better egg quality. I didn't know to ask about them before and am not sure if those are options for me. Every RE is trying to make their own recipe for success so maybe Dr. Behera believes clomid is crucial in that recipe, but I just want to know if there are other options.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Behera and her entire staff are all fabulous. At my initial consult I brought a pregnant friend (I'm single) who was a past patient of hers (who went to a different clinic for reasons unrelated to Dr. Behera's care). At my follow up with Dr. Behera over two months later she asked me how my friend was doing by name. That's just one example of how they make you feel like you're family.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The staff is all friendly, helpful and VERY competent. The entire staff is very organized and in all cases next steps are provided before you could even need to ask.
How was your experience with Millie Behera?
I love Dr. Behera and trust her ability to get me pregnant. Her bedside manner is unlike any I've ever seen and she's always willing to answer any questions I have.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
It can be a wait to get on her calendar. Typically when she tells her staff to schedule a follow up around X date you can add 2-3 weeks before the staff finds an appointment slot for you.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I'm single, attempting to have a chip on my own using frozen donor sperm. She did blood work and HSG and I think and SHG to make sure all was normal. Once the results were in she gave me the choice of starting with a natural cycle or clomid, talking me through the risks of clomid. She was understanding and supportive of my choice to start my first cycle with clomid and a trigger shot. In her office the IUI is performed by one of her NUrse Practitioners. On day 3 and 10 they do an ultrasound to first confirm there are no cysts and then check readiness size & number. Clomid was given days 3-7 (50mg the first cycle, 100mg the second). I triggered with Ovidrel and IUI was exactly 36 hours later. After IUI cream progesterone was used vaginally with a blood check on day 6 to check progesterone. I'm still in the two week wait of my 2nd IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Millie Behera.
I have very good insurance so can't really speak to this.

Describe your experience with Bloom Repr Institute.
Strengths: NP and Dr. B are ah-mazing. I have no complaints about them what-so-ever. They communicate well, are brilliant, tailor everything to my needs and body, and are just overall wonderful people. The MA Cheryl is just as amazing! Weaknesses: communication and responses from business office and IVF Nurses is spotty. When I met 1 of the IVF nurses,however, on the day of my retrieval she was very kind and answered all of my questions. She respnded quickly yo my needs post-retrieval with nausea meds, pain meds, warm blankets, etc.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Elizabeth Shrader NP has held my hand every step of the way. She has personalized my treatment plan to me. She responds to my emails promply and answers all of my questions. Dr Behera listens, never rushes me, hugs me when Im sad or upset, tailors my treatment plan to me and genuinly shows she cares about ME. I was crying prior my egg retrieval...Dr. B held my hand and wipes away my tears until I was sedated.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The MA Cheryl at the Gilbert clinic is amazing! She took care of everything I asked for help with. She is very sweet and compassionate. I havr had trouble getting reponses from the IVF Nurses and feel a disconnect from them being at the sattelite clinic instead of the big clinic in Scottsdale. I made the NP aware and she has chosen to do most of the communication with me directly to alleviate the gaps.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Millie Behera?
I go to the sattelite clinic in Gilbert. I mainly see Elizabeth, NP and she closely communicates with Dr B and keeps me updated every step of the way. I have seen Dr B in person 3x now. Both Elizabeth and Dr. B are compassionate, caring and very knowledgable. Even though my eggs are not cooperating and I have not been able to sustain a pregnancy I do noy blame either provider...my body and eggs are to blame. I know that I am in the right place with these providers and would never consider .ovimg to another clinic.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
They will tailor the plan to you and your needs. You will never feel like a number.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IUI #1 resulted in a missed abortion. There was a heartbeat, but we lost the baby. I was terrfied of miscarrying again. I was given the option of another IUI or IVF. We chose IVF because my AMH was low and I wanted to improve the odds of not miscarrying again, wanted to be able to do PGS testing to ensure no chromosomal abnormalities, and was hoping to freeze embryos gor future pregnancies. IVF round 1 was cancelled because I ovulated prematurly. IVF round 2 I had 8 follicles, 3 eggs were extracted. ICSI was performed. 1 embryo split into 2 but didnt do anything beyond that. The other 2 never fertilized. I do noy blame my providers for any of this. They have been up front with me about success rates, what to expect for my body, and how to proceed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Millie Behera.
IUI my insurance covered after I met my deductible. IVF was $13,900, PGS $1800 (plus fee to genetic company), EEVA $599, plus cost of meds. Transfer is $3,900...but we have not made it to this step. We are in the process of considering egg donor which is $14,500 for 8 eggs or $12,500 for 6 eggs plus $3900 for transfer

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Behera listened to all of my concerns. Her treatment prevented a repeat issue of OHSS during our IVF treatment, which had occured with another Dr. during our first ever IVF treatment. They were just as excited as we were when we became pregnant, and were just as upset when we found out our baby had Turner Syndrome, having a 99% chance of miscarriage. When I had bleeding, instead of directing me to a closer Dr., they made time for us to come in and check on our baby. They took ultasounds once a week for 4 weeks. When our baby passed, they were gentle and caring. They were just as devastated as we were. When I was in shock and couldn't believe we had lost her, they let me come in the next day to check...even during the following 2 weeks as I went through my miscarriage naturally. They answered my texts in the middle of the night when I miscarried at home, after midnight, to answer my questions and put me at ease. We had the choice to keep our baby and bury her at home with us. They are extremely encouraging several months later as we are getting ready for our 1st FET with them. The entire staff is warm, welcoming, and truly loving!

How was your experience with Millie Behera?
Dr. Behera is THE BEST OF THE BEST! She listens to her patients, is caring, compassionate, and passionate about helping her patients become parents. She keeps us informed of everything necessary and is always available to answer our questions. You truly feel like you are part of a family/partner in your care, instead of a patient.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
Get your medical records and make an appointment to see her. We wish we would have come to her much sooner.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We qualified for a clinical study which helped us afford our IVF cycle at a cost which was substantially less than typical. She recognized my previous issue of OHSS from my first IVF cycle with another doctor and had me start and continue at a lower dosage of medication to prevent it from happening again. She saw I had a high prolactin level, began treating it, but also sent me for an MRI which helped diagnose me with a benign tumor on my pituitary gland. She also had me take CoQ10 and baby aspirin during my IVF cycle and now our current FET cycle, which we had never even heard of as something I should have taken. I was told to eat a lot of protein and drink lot of Gatorade for hydration on top of water. I became pregnant for the first time after TTC for 5 1/2 years. Unfortunately, our baby had a chromosomal anomaly and we lost her at nearly 10 weeks, but even that experience was handled amazingly. I was able to go through it naturally and lay our baby to rest at home.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
As a teacher, I can't leave during the day, so they worked with me to allow me to head over after work. Wait time was minimal for the most part.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Millie Behera.
The costs are comparable with other clinics in the area.

Describe your experience with Bloom Repr Institute.
This clinic has had great reviews and great results from other patients. My experience so far has been pleasant, although we haven't yet conceived; we started cycle #2 with optimism. Dr. Behera and her staff are warm, inviting, and encouraging throughout the whole process. That is, by far, their greatest strength. The biggest weakness at Bloom is related to volume of patients, and availability of nursing staff. Administrative duties do not get treated with as much importance as I would have hoped, likely as a result of increasing patient quantity.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Behera was warm, inviting, and compassionate. As one who has had children of her own using ART, she understands and empathizes with her patients.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Millie Behera?
Dr. Behera' warmth & compassion made us feel welcome in her office. She gave us confidence & hope. Dr. Behera is extremely positive. She encouraged our feedback, and it was obvious she listened closely to our concerns.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
It's a busy clinic, but the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. There are some days you may feel a little overlooked due to patient volume. However, I was always responded to, even if it required more effort on my end. Continue to ask as many questions as possible, follow up frequently, and you will be well taken care of.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did 1 FET cycle that ended in early miscarriage. Currently underway with cycle #2. I'm adding acupuncture to this 2nd round, in hopes of increasing our chance of success. Meds: Lupron & PIO injections; Estradiol patches, progesterone & estrogen cream, GCFS wash.

I think it can be hard to get in touch with someone unless you’re doing an IVF cycle, as you’d then have an IVF coordinator who’s very available. However, everyone at the clinic [Bloom Reproductive Inst] is very competent and caring, and I’ve found that if you really want to talk to someone, you can get their attention.... you see the nurse and staff much more than the doctor.

However, everyone at the clinic is very competent and caring, and I’ve found that if you really want to talk to someone, you can get their attention. Also, as is true of many fertility clinics, you see the nurse and staff much more than the doctor.

She always made sure to console me and ensure that I felt comfortable.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Tamara was always very compassionate and really seemed as though she wanted it to work for us. She cheered with our triumphs and mourned our defeats, all while being very competent.
How was your experience with Millie Behera?
She always had a calming presence that gave me hope. Even though we haven’t been successful, in each cycle we’ve learned something and made strides towards becoming pregnant. She always was upfront with me about her expectations and how the cycle had went and was very proactive about treatment options. She allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed to feel comfortable with whatever next steps.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
I don’t know that I have advice specifically for a patient of Dr. Behera’s, but I would say not to waste too much time on a given course that’s not effective.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
In my latest FET, we did a protocol to treat autoimmune disease and MTHFR mutation. We did many forms of estrogen and progesterone, as well as baby aspirin, lovenox, and lipids infusions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Millie Behera.
Most of my treatment was covered under insurance, but the out of pocket treatments were expensive. The lipid infusions were weekly at $450.

  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Millie Behera?
Infertility sucks. Dr. Behera was always full of so much positivity, especially when we were at our saddest points and had no hope left. When we left our consult, my husband said to me, “This is the first time I feel like we WILL be parents” She will walk you through it all and give you the hope you have lost along the way
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
Things aren’t always perfect, and don’t go as planned, but Behera will find what makes sense for your body and your treatment. No two patients are given the same plan because she treats us as individuals
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have a very high AMH. I was on low dosage for stims and reacted favorably. We had 17 eggs retrieved! However, only 3 made it to blasts. And after genetic testing, we were left with none. So we had to start at square one. She said I have a high reserve, but maybe the eggs aren’t the healthiest. So I’m taking 27 vitamins a day for 2 cycles to see if that helps. The way she explains everything is very helpful. She told us it’s not time to give up yet.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Millie Behera.
Fortunately our insurance has a 10k lifetime max for infertility. Everything was billed to our insurance. For our first cycle, we payed 7k out of pocket, but that was for genetic testing and medications. For our second cycle, we were allowed to get our meds from Europe, so we have only spent 2k so far.

Strengths: wonderful staff. All caring and genuine and remember you. Weakness: they can run late. You don’t get to see Dr B very often. General: it’s a great place. I understand that there are less expensive options in the valley but Bloom does not batch their retrievals and transfers. I like that I’m not a number but they base my care on me.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr B is very genuine and concerned with your progress and mental status (given the difficulty of all this). I had severe OHSS after retrieval and ended up needing to be seen on her days off and she would come in and do whatever was needed.

How was your experience with Millie Behera?
Dr B is insanely sweet. I do wish we could see her more often than just retrieval and consult. We haven’t yet reached transfer but I do believe she wants the absolute best for each patient. I have had a lot of setbacks in my time at Bloom, and I now feel that Dr B knows my situation very well and could make plans for my success really knowing who I was.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Millie Behera?
Understand you won’t get to see her very often.
Describe the protocols Millie Behera used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My retrieval cycle included menopur, follistim, ganirelix and my trigger was Lupron. Lupron was used because I was high risk for OHSS. It did not perform as expected so last minute we added 5000 pregnyl. Egg retrieval was stopped early because eggs weren’t ready. Took the other 5000 pregnyl so had severe OHSS complete with two fluid drains and a hospital stay. Dr B has quite a intricate transfer protocol but I can’t speak to it yet.

How was your experience with Diane Woodford?
Dr Woodford definitely knows what’s she is doing! She is very knowledgeable about treatments and personalized them for her patients. She is also kind and funny which goes a long way when you are in the midst of infertility and doing treatments!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Diane Woodford?
Go see her! Seriously, you’ll love her, you’ll love the staff, you’ll love heir office, prices and just the whole experience!!
Describe the protocols Diane Woodford used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We would do a baseline ultrasound somewhere between CD’s 1-3. Once we were cleared, I would start taking oral femara in CD’s 3-7. I would the. Go in for another ultrasound to see that my eggs responded to the medication. Once that was confirmed, I was instructed to do my trigger Shot (ovidrel) at home that night at a specific time. I was also scheduled for my IUI 48 hours later. On the day of the IUI, my husband gave his sample in the office. It was processed/washed and we returned 2 hours later for the actual IUI. Once the IUI was done, I was told to lay still for 10-15 minutes and then we were done. I was started on vaginal progesterone cream th day after my IUI. I had a blood progesterone test a week after my IUI and a boood pregnancy test 2 weeks after my IUI. Both IUI’s resulted in a negative result :(
Describe the costs associated with your care under Diane Woodford.
Our IUI was 1170.00 with the ultrasounds. We paid additional money for the medications and trigger shot.

Kind, compassionate, knowledgeable. She truly exceeded my expectations! As a nurse, I've worked with good, bad and indifferent physicians. Dr. Behera is not only knowledgeable about infertility, she has outstanding bedside manor. It's hard to find a physician that has both qualities!... Go in with an open mind! Be willing to hear your options. Be flexible, not all treatment plans work for every patient! Dr. Behera is really good about making individual treatment plans for each patient

No weaknesses [at Bloom Reproductive Institute]. Prompt to return calls, great environment, typically don't wait long than 10 minutes. I would want a new patient to know IVF takes much longer than you expect. I started back in November and probably wont transfer until April. Don't hesitate to ask questions...All doctors and nurses are very caring and get back to you if you have questions almost immediately.

I am so happy with every one of the nurses in this office [Bloom Reproductive Institute[. I mostly have appointments with Lisa or Tamara. They are both very kind and knowledgeable. They always listen to my concerns and take them seriously. I recently asked to try a new medication and asked about having surgery and Tamara made me feel like she really cared about me and my concerns.
