Describe your experience with Generation Next Fertility.
Scheduling abilities and easily accessible monitoring hours on weekday mornings and Saturdays, however the first-come-first serve nature of this lends itself to lengthy wait times. Also, it's impressive that you can make a consultation appt with Dr. Nejat within one week timeframe even though he is a busy doctor. The online portal with blood and ultrasound results makes it easy and quick to get results and is extremely helpful for tracking what happened if you have treatment over multiple cycles.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Nejat has an impeccable bedside manner. He seems to remember the small details about you and always makes your questions feel welcome and thoughtfully answered.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff were pleasant enough and called back within 2-hours if I had questions. The one who gave the trigger shot in office seemed a little hesitant, like she may have been new at this.
How was your experience with Edward Nejat?
Dr. Nejat is a fantastic doctor. He was very diligent at tracking and changing the course of my IUI as needed (e.g., he allowed us to come in early for the insemination procedure after addressing my concerns regarding the time between the Ovidrel trigger shot and the procedure, and he also explained the timeframe for the egg traveling down the fallopian tube to help me understand the timing). For my most recent consultation regarding IVF, he thoughtfully went through the expected process including showing us a slide show of egg development and hatching. He offered multiple breaks in this discussion for us to ask questions and to check we understood everything. He is generally a warm and empathic doctor! I have recommended him to a friend who now sees him also.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Edward Nejat?
If you have to wait to begin as one of his patients he is well worth the wait.
Describe the protocols Edward Nejat used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We stimulated with 50mg of Clomid, rather than a higher dose as I usually ovulate on my own. We used Ovidrel to trigger ovulation at day 14 based on the size of two follicles (both 19mm) and slight indication on blood work that my LH levels were rising. Although not standard practice at his clinic, he offered us two inseminations in response to my request (we ended up only going with one).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Edward Nejat.
Other than a copay of $40 for each visit including monitoring and $88 for Ovidrel shot (which was cheaper than the pharmacy, Freedom Pharmacy, that they send prescriptions to), costs were covered by my insurance
