What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
Be informed and ready to talk about your options and questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Daniel Skora at Fertility Specialists of Texas?
As a midwife, I have very high expectations for my care providers, and Dr Skora met all of them. He takes the time at each appointment to explain your options and procedures. Additionally, he and his staff were all very respectful of me and my partner, who is a trans woman. We did not have to worry about being judged or misgendered in his office.
Describe the protocols Daniel Skora used in your cycles at Fertility Specialists of Texas and their degree of success.
Still in the process of treatment! When we started care and reviewed our labs, he offered us the choice of IUI or IVF due to male factor subfertility. I am still fertile with a great AFC, but have diminished ovarian reserve for my age (I am 28 and my partner is 33). My partner's sperm was right on the edge of recommending straight to IVF, so we chose IVF due to a higher chance of success, overall diminished cost compared to several IUI cycles + potential IVF, and my partner desiring to start HRT.

He prefers to only transfer one embryo, at least in my case. I am not sure if it would be different for someone older or with other health factors.
