Obstetrics and Gynecology
I would never in this life suggest this doctor to anyone. He looked very promising at our first visit. Then started our next visits where he never talked about how the ivf cycle is going to be. We really had to ask many questions to get to know what we will be going through. Then he gave us the estimate of the cycle and in the end we ended up paying 25% more than what he originally told us. And we had to come with finances. I can't believe that we had to arrange for more finance in the middle of cycle. He for sure makes sure we sign up the papers that we will go thorugh the whole cycle but what about our rights.
Then came the day of embryo transfer. Once again he made us sign all the paperwork and things that could go wrong but what about things that went wrong during embryo transfer. I guess we just don't have those rights. We can't believe that he had hard time doing the transfer. It was so surreal and painful once you are lying on bed. I will never forget it. Then he started yelling out at nurses that they were not prepared. Finally, the other doctor from the facility came and did the embryo transfer. Now, i am not ever sure if they did the embryo transfer.
Then he emailed the bad news that I am not pregnant. He promised us that he will provide us the letter for insurance which we can submit for claim purposes and we never received. We have been trying to reach him by phone, emails etc. He is not getting back to us. This is a part of my painful story. I will definitely BEG you to stay away from him. We have been ripped of the money and everything. And after going through what we were already going through, this has added more pain and less trust in how doctors have made ivf a money making business only.
