Describe your experience with National Institutes of Health.
Again, during this time Dr. Wolff and her team were on top of everything and were quick to address my concerns (especially the one of how a second retrieval within weeks of the first would affect my body). Most importantly, Dr. Wolff and her team were always available. As a patient, going through any medical procedure is stressful and having the ability to connect with your team as quickly as I was was a huge stress reliever.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The entire team I worked with was extremely attentive, knowledgable, caring and was there every step of the way.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She was available 24/7. Texting to ensure I got my meds on-time, stopping by to answer any and all questions I had.
How was your experience with Erin Wolff?
Very open and honest. Had a couple hiccups and she addressed each situation with a clear head and in lines of doing what was best for me and my situation. Since my doctors believed I needed the transplant as soon as possible Dr. Wolff and her team had an aggressive timeline to meet. She worked tirelessly with my doctors to ensure I got the transplant as soon as I could while also going through the oocyte retrieval.
Dr. Wolff and her team explained each and every detail at every step along the way. I knew exactly what the process was like and what to expect. When I had question, her and her team were eager to respond. Since I was part of a study at NIH it required me to be in the hospital during the entire 3 week process that lead up to the retrieval and because of this I was in constant contact with Dr. Wolff meeting with her multiple times per week.
