The nursing staff [at Columbus Center] was mostly awesome. They were the ones that I mainly saw...They batch people and cycle everyone at the same time. They will only cycle you at certain times if you do IVF. He didn't know what my insurance would and wouldn't cover. He told me he didn't recommend and injectable cycle because my insurance wouldn't cover the medications when they actually would. He also told me my insurance wouldn't cover monitoring and they will.

Describe your experience with Columbus Center for Reproductive Endocrinology.
They batch people and cycle everyone at the same time. They will only cycle you at certain times if you do IVF. He didn't know what my insurance would and wouldn't cover. He told me he didn't recommend and injectable cycle because my insurance wouldn't cover the medications when they actually would. He also told me my insurance wouldn't cover monitoring and they will. He is the only RE in the area and there are a lot of people that work at my company. I wonder how many people spent way more money than they should because he didn't check or gave them wrong info.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He batches patients and does the same protocols for all. He won't let you cycle if he feels like you won't help his success ratings. My FSH was higher than he wanted so he kept pushing donor eggs on me no matter how many times I told him I wasn't interested in it.

How was your experience with Prakash Thiruppath?
Treatment the same for everyone. I have a friend that also went to his clinic and he did the exact same thing for us both. Although I was only 30 at the time, I am a poor responder to meds. Rather than treat me as such, he gave me the same meds as he did everyone else. He is the only doctor in the area so he can charge what he wants. I've been told by several people that went there that they felt like he was all about money. I tend to agree. He Recommends IVF for everyone. I felt no compassion during my loss. He never asked how I was, never apologized for my loss, never acknowledged that this could be a difficult time. At 7w i went in for a scan to find that there was no baby in my uterus so it was ectopic. In that same visit, he Just pushed IVF on me immediately rather than let me grieve. Show him the money and he's your doctor.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Prakash Thiruppath?
I have a friend that achieved a pregnancy with him but she was an easy case. Blocked tubes only and pregnant on her first IVF. As someone that took more to achieve a pregnancy, I didn't feel like he was willing to help or work with me.
Describe the protocols Prakash Thiruppath used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did clomid and femera timed intercourse cycles. Then femera and clomid IUI cycles. My last cycle we went back to a clomid and timed intercourse cycle which did end in a positive but I lost the baby because it was suspected to be in my tube. All the rest of my cycles were negative.
