Everyone at the clinic [U of Miami] was very welcoming. It was very hard to get the first initial appointment I believe I had to wait almost 2 months but once I was in it was easy to change appointments or get the earliest ones during stims for my ultra sounds. They were very flexible with me...My nurse was great she was compassionate and caring and always made me feel comfortable. Even when I would overwhelm her with questions. My only complaint was at times is was hard to get a hold of her I found email to be the best way to reach her.

Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
Everyone at the clinic was very welcoming. It was very hard to get the first initial appointment I believe I had to wait almost 2 months but once I was in it was easy to change appointments or get the earliest ones during stims for my ultra sounds. They were very flexible with me.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
While we had wonderful results I felt like I had more of a connection with my nurse rather than Dr. Attia. He was very dry and to the point.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
My nurse was great she was compassionate and caring and always made me feel comfortable. Even when I would overwhelm her with questions. My only complaint was at times is was hard to get a hold of her I found email to be the best way to reach her.
How was your experience with George Attia?
Dr. Attia was very direct and to the point. Which can be good but I did not feel a personal connection to him. I felt like all appointments with him were rushed on the occasions that I saw him. As you know during fertility treatments you can pretty much visit the clinic three to five times in a week. I would say that I only saw him about two times in any given week until I reached the end of my journey. Then he would be accompanied by other doctors. Whether interns or visiting doctors. For my first sonogram to determine if I was having one or two babies there were about four to five doctors in the ultra sound room. On that first visit we were unable to hear the heartbeats due to the babies still being too small. Even though Dr. Attia reassured me it was still too soon with the room being full of people I didn't know it was very uncomfortable and emotional for me.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia?
Do not be turned off by his bedside manner he is brilliant at what he does.
Describe the protocols George Attia used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My fertility treatments began January 1, 2016 with birth control pills. I took the pills for about 3 weeks. Then I began Lupron ( don't remember the exact dosage) I began stims on feb 12 decreasing the dosage of lupron and adding gonal f and menapur to the injections. Trigger of Noval was feb 22 at 11:20 pm and egg retrieval was feb 24 at 8am. 24 eggs were retrieved 15 matured 11 tested using PDg testing. Only 2 embryos were viable and they were transferred on feb 24. Resulting in a twin pregnancy. My babies are just about 6 months old now and perfectly healthy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Attia.
$10,000 initial procedure (dr visits, ultra sounds, egg retrieval, icis, transfer) $3,500 medications $5,000 pdg testing

It is a hospital based clinic [UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] so my insurance charged me for my HSG, it could have been free and of course they didn't tell me that. I got an ice surprise bill later. It is a small office with lots of patients. When you call you usually get to speak to someone just probably not the nurse or doctor or not las you request...She [nurse] seemed overwhelmed...I did not receive many details, just that he want to proceed with a medicated IUI or IVF transferring two. It was overwhelming.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Attia tended to look more at the computer than at us. He also always had students and not just 1. Being so new at the time made the process overwhelming
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
She seemed overwhelmed.
How was your experience with George Attia?
He seemed to be rushing. He also seemed ready to move right into IVF and wanted to put two, which per recommendations is 1 too many. He tends to look more at the monitor than the patient. He did answer all of my questions, but being a newbie I didn't have that many. My new doctor did a much better job explains my test results and found an error in one of the test. Other people that I know have used him successfully but he just wasn't the right fit for me.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia?
I recommend a new patient come read with their questions, state they don't want students in their consultation, and have their mind set on the number of embryos the want transferred.

The nursing staff [at UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center] seemed rushed. It also felt unorganized. Sometimes the nurses seem annoyed with questions...they always run late, seem very unorganized, and not a good communicator...I did the FDA testing at their office and a few days before retrieval was told that the lab never received the labs so I had to rush to an outside lab to have labs drawn or else my retrieval would have been cancelled.

Describe your experience with UHealth Reproductive and Fertility Center.
The clinic has 2 locations so you are able to decided which to go to. The dr was nice and informative to me. The weaknesses is they always run late, seem very unorganized, and not a good communicator.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
When I went to their office the dr and nurses would always greet me by my name.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff seemed rushed. It also felt unorganized. Sometimes the nurses seem annoyed with questions.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Lost or damaged samples
How was your experience with George Attia?
The dr. is nice but feels very very rushed. His nurse is also nice but very very rushed. I didn't completely feel that everything was explained to me thoroughly. Returning phone calls is a weakness of this clinic. Also, the front office gave me different answers than the nursing staff which made it very confusing. When I first met with the dr. he seemed very positive and upbeat. He always greeted me with a smile. The office wait is always really long and they are hardly ever on time.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Attia?
Be prepared to wait and be persistent with communications with this office. Ask questions until you get an answer.
Describe the protocols George Attia used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Antagonist protocol. 8 days of stims on high doses of menopur and gonal-f. They ordered the correct amount of meds and made sure that I didn't have to over pay for extra meds I wouldn't need.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
This office does monitoring appointments before noon so you just have to show up and wait your turn. You could be there for 30 minutes to 2 hours just waiting.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Attia.
Dr. Attia was the cheapest dr that I found in the area.
