Describe your experience with Women's Specialty & Fertility Center.
Very nice and clean clinic. Up to date technology, well organized, and kind staff. The office is ran like a well oiled machine and you feel like a human not a number. The nursing staff is especially amazing.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I mostly felt like a human with him, especially in the beginning and throughout the treatments. However, when we found out I miscarried, I felt as if he was too casual about it, like it was no big deal. It was hurtful.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was amazing. Caring, compassionate, thorough... Everything you want in nursing staff. They were kind and explained everything in detail so that we understood and answered all questions we had.
How was your experience with Michael Synn?
He was very thorough, which I appreciated. He was kind and compassionate yet gave us the facts in a way we could understand. My only complaint is that I felt like once we miscarried he made us feel as though it was no big deal, we'll just do it again. However, we don't have the funds t do it again so it was beyond a big deal to us. Even if we did have the funds to do it again, I still feel like he could have treated our miscarriage with more care so we weren't so hurt.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Synn?
Bring a notebook! He's very thorough and explains everything in detail and you'll want to write it all down.
Describe the protocols Michael Synn used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I'm not sure of our protocol or exact dosages but we used gonal f and menopur. We had to use the menopur because a few of my follicles were getting too big. We also did two trigger shots (one in my stomach and one in my hip) before egg retrieval.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Synn.
All together (medications, co-pays, appointments, egg retrieval, transfer, etc) it was about $14,000.
