Describe your experience with Cedars-Sinai.
Way to expensive, they charge you for every little thing with NO exception. I was informed by the office to change insurance plans from a PPO to an HMO for better coverage, but was the complete opposite. The billing is confusing and the coordinator who goes over the fees can never give you a solid answer as to how much you will end up paying.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
As a patient, I felt too small to fit in the huge reproductive office the doctor was running along with the other physician. All my direct questions and concerns were not heart felt answers I received either of the nurses or the team members. For the doctor’s office, I was yet another number they treated and it truly echoed that way.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Total robots....no sort of compassion or sympathy towards their patients.
How was your experience with Margareta Pisarska?
Dr. Pisarska is aware of her practice and has a great load of knowledge. But as a patient I did not receive that compassionate warmth from her. She can be a great educator and a good resource to her patients, but not someone to provide infertility treatments as it’s a sensitive topic.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Margareta Pisarska?
Don't walk into the office expecting to be greeted as a "fertility" patient. The office atmosphere feels cold and not welcoming. She is always way too busy to have a direct conversation with her patients.
Describe the protocols Margareta Pisarska used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was put on clomid on both of my IUI's. Based on her experience she recommended to have back to back IUI's to result in pregnancy. WRONG!!! that wasn't the case and it did not result in pregnancy as to her hopes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Margareta Pisarska.
An estimate of $3,800 for IUI
