Since OFRM is such a small clinic, you get very personalized treatment and responses from the staff. It might not be the best place if you eventually need an egg donor because it is a small practice unless you are willing to bring a donor in or select frozen donor eggs to use. It's a great place to go if you can use your own eggs...IUI procedure $700. IVF procedure with meds around $15,000. Insurance copays for all office visits and blood tests - extra.

Describe your experience with Offices for Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
Since OFRM is such a small clinic, you get very personalized treatment and responses from the staff. It might not be the best place if you eventually need an egg donor because it is a small practice unless you are willing to bring a donor in or select frozen donor eggs to use. It's a great place to go if you can use your own eggs.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
OFRM is a very small practice so the staff knows everyone. Dr. Schmidt is a very warm person with good bedside manner.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
They always got back to me right away when I phoned in with a question. All the nursing staff at OFRM are lovely and personable.
How was your experience with Cecilia Schmidt-Sarosi?
Dr. Schmidt is a very warm, friendly person with excellent bedside manner. She's very optimistic with fertility treatment. She will show you what you want to know and will disclose your numbers if you ask.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Cecilia Schmidt-Sarosi?
Dr. Schmidt is perhaps too optimistic in the way she presents treatment and we only discussed negative outcomes when we crossed that bridge.
Describe the protocols Cecilia Schmidt-Sarosi used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For my very first treatment, Dr. Schmidt said it's the Clomid Challenge and didn't explain what that meant in terms of being prepared to start fertility treatment, eventhough I understood my follicles were being monitored. It ended up being a rush to have sperm in the office ready for IUI. Subsequent IUIs and IVF went more smoothly after I knew what to expect.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Cecilia Schmidt-Sarosi.
IUI procedure $700. IVF procedure with meds around $15,000. Insurance copays for all office visits and blood tests - extra.
