The nurses [at VA Ctr for Repro Med (VCRM] were a bit slow to warm up but great once you get to know them. To this day, I still communicate with a nurse who shares my birthday and it is awesome!...Because it is a private practice, they are a bit moody or susceptible to the whims of emotion...There are also many high profile patients who visit the practice in fleets of fancy cars and armored vehicles.

Describe your experience with Virginia Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Because it is a private practice, they are a bit moody or susceptible to the whims of emotion. There are also many high profile patients who visit the practice in fleets of fancy cars and armored vehicles. Be prepared
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
This is a private practice, so every patient is treated like a princess. All the way from walking through the front door to seeing the doctor to seeing the anesthesiologist to doing most of the procedures in house
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses were a bit slow to warm up but great once you get to know them. To this day, I still communicate with a nurse who shares my birthday and it is awesome !
How was your experience with Fady Sharara?
Dr. Sharara was warm and approachable and at the same time a man on a mission. He was busy, but you knew that he was busy trying to make his patients happy. The entire team felt like a big family. I trusted him and have no regrets to this day.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Fady Sharara?
Because he is a man on a mission, he moves swiftly. As a patient (and frequently an infertile one), you are stressed and emotional and wanting to go slowly through the steps. It helps to just ask him to slow down and talk you through it
Describe the protocols Fady Sharara used in your cycles and their degree of success.
While we had done natural cycle IVF, this was our one regular IVF with all of the drugs and procedures that you would expect. Dr. Sharara had exhausted every other option through thorough testing. It was as low stress as you'd hope and successful. While the patient always deserves credit for a positive attitude, he was an exceptional doctor

VCRM is special in many ways, your treatment is personalized, Dr. Sharara is very meticulous, he checks everything. He founds some issues that previous doctors do not even consider looking at them. In addition, all VCRM personnel truly cared about me. All the nurses are great, specially Jo. She is amazing! The best nurse I've ever met. Jo even kept in contact with me during my pregnancy to see how I was doing.
