Describe your experience with Reproductive Associates of Delaware.
My overall experience has been wonderful. I will say there were a couple of times my appointment was labeled incorrectly. I had a monitoring appointment recently but my form and the P.A. thought I was being seen for my baseline monitoring and blood work.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Bachman is extremely welcoming and detailed in the information she has been providing, including drawing diagrams to explain the processes and procedures in detail. I am still going through treatment and hope for a good outcome.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman?
The moment my Husband and I met Dr. Bachman, we instantly felt comforted by her outgoing, positive attitude. Anytime I meet with her, she greets me with a big hug. She is extremely thorough when going over treatment options and my plan of care.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman?
Ask questions! Do not feel embarrassed or uncomfortable. If something has been on your mind, if you are confused by what you are being told, simply ask. She is happy to help.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I started IUI treatments in Sept. 2015. August 2015 was spent getting lots of blood work and testing (Sono and HSG). The Dr. could find nothing wrong with myself or my Husband after the conclusion of testing. The Dr. felt that I should start with IUI treatments with artificial insemination. I used Clomid followed by OvidreI did this for 3 cycles. Upon my 4th cycle, a cyst had grown on my right side from the Clomid, so I was required to take a month off from treatment until the cyst disappeared. In January I chose to take one more month off. I started my 4th cycle in Feb. 2016 using Follistim injection 75 units per day, along with my Ovidrel. The 4th cycle failed and I am currently in my 5th cycle with Follistim. I actually just received the call from my Dr. office to take my ovidrel this evening, followed by two days of IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman.
With my insurance, I have unlimited IUI treatments I can utilize. I only have one lifetime max of $15,000 for IVF. In 2015 I paid a $50 for most visits as well as payments when my coinsurance kicked in. For 2016, I had to meet my $750 deductible, no copay and pay the coinsurance.

The clinic [Repro Assoc of DE] is excellent. Their facilities are clean and their equipment is new. They have several offices in the area to accommodate your schedule. They are pricier than other clinics in the region but I felt the service they provided was well worth it...The billing office really went to bat for me. My insurance incorrectly told them (and me) that my IUIs and IVF would be covered 80/20 after the deductible. That was incorrect. We had no coverage. The billing office tried to fight it for me and actually filed a formal complaint citing the reference number of the call.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Associates of Delaware.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Kovalevksy took the time to get to know me and my husband before any treatment. He was blunt but kind and always gave me more information when asked. He understood the financial burdens that come with infertility and always gave honest opinion on what steps he would take and why. We didn't have our embryos screened because he told us it was not a necessity for our particular case. We were vulnerable and would have gladly given the money if he had answered differently. He gave us his personal cell phone number in case of emergency and was always available by phone or portal.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
My coordinator was an actual angel. Mari went so far above my expectations that I am at a loss for words. She was my rock and always responded to me within 20 minutes and got things going when needed. Rhonda was my main PA and she was such a source of comfort and knowledge. This woman laughed with me and cried with me. She held my hand when needed and was like a fairy godmother. I loved these two women more than I can say. On the flip side, I didn't like the attitude of the front desk woman on the second floor suite who had short, white hair. She was frustrating and mean and just unpleasant. Luckily I got to see Gina at the front desk the most and she was always sweet and accommodating.
How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
He was very present and available to answer questions. We had confidence in him as a doctor. He was one of the doctors who performed my laparoscopic surgery and he went above and beyond to make sure everything was done to the best of their abilities. My surgery was more complicated than had been expected but he took extra time to correct issues within my body (scarring from endometriosis caused organs to be very misplaced and he corrected all of them).
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
He is blunt. On the first visit he seemed intimidating and overly confident. He is very funny when appropriate and has great bedside manner.
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did three letrazole cycles for IUI. After the third he told me we would switch up the meds or move on to IVF. We had already done two medicated cycles without IUI and he was confident that IVF was our best bet. We used the mini stim protocol for IVF. Mainly due to my age at the time (28) and the fear that I would overtime on higher meds as I produced a lot of follicles during IUIs.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
It was a well oiled machine. You could go in between 6am and 12pm. I tended to be the first patient in the office due to my schedule. A lot of people would go to offices close to work to accommodate their schedules. I never waited more than 15 minutes, even on days that I showed up later (around 8). They let you do your blood work first if you aren't the first patient into a room which was nice. Rita (phlebotomist) was always friendly and efficient.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky.
The billing office really went to bat for me. My insurance incorrectly told them (and me) that my IUIs and IVF would be covered 80/20 after the deductible. That was incorrect. We had no coverage. The billing office tried to fight it for me and actually filed a formal complaint citing the reference number of the call. My medicated IUIs were under 2k including meds and daily monitoring (blood work and transvaginal u/s). My mini stim cycle was 11k plus $4000 for meds. I was able to get some donated meds and only paid $3600. After my positive pregnancy test (and two more to confirm the HcG was doubling appropriately) I had to pay for three of my ultrasounds ($60) out of 12 ultrasounds. All other copays were included with the cost of IUI and IVF.

Cycle of IVF with PGS [at Reproductive Associates of Delaware] was approximately $18000, including unlimited transfers of any embryos created and all monitoring and procedures...Strengths are small size, compassionate doctors who all seem to "know" your case no matter who you get. Office functions well- appts on time, friendly staff, easy to communicate with coordinator over email. Weakness- the person calling you with daily results and instructions is often non-clinical or at least doesn't seem to really know anything about you so are not prepared to answer your questions. They are more or less just a messenger. It was difficult to be receiving daily important instructions from someone whom I had never met and who didn't identify what their role was in the clinic.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt that everyone in the office, from the patient care coordinator to receptionist to physician, understood how hard our journey had been and how important each step of the way was for us
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Amazing attention to detail, even for things that seemed important to me but may have been more miniscule details
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Ronald Feinberg?
Dr. Feinberg is both brilliant and compassionate. He is committed to understanding his patients' underlying diagnosis so that he can best tailor and personalize their treatment, while also using known evidence to support his decisions. He articulates clearly pros and cons of treatment options when they are available and involves patients in decision making. His gentle bedside manner was also reassuring at the time of stressful procedures. And he celebrates your successes with you.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ronald Feinberg?
Be prepared to have some decisions to make yourself- Dr. Feinberg's style of explaining pros and cons, risks and benefits, means that you may be left to make the ultimate decision about your treatment plan where there are equally good options available to you.
Describe the protocols Ronald Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
First IVF cycle was an agonist protocol with high doses of FSH however this was unsuccessful for us and we retrieved only a few, poor quality eggs that did not produce blastocyts. Second IVF cycle was using "ministim" and this much gentler approach resulted in our best cycle ever that ultimately resulted in pregnancy with transfer of a PGS normal embryo.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Bachmann took as much time with my husband and I as we felt that we needed. She answered all of our questions and even when she did not have the answer she would tell us that, then tell us what we could expect and when she could have the answer to the question that we asked.

How was your experience with Emelia Bachman?
She was very compassionate with me and took the time to let me cry out my frustration as she confirmed a diagnoses that had been thrown around by another Doctor years prior but then dismissed. She explained everything is basic terms instead of medical terminology making it all easy to understand.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman?
Listen to her from start to finish, she cares, and has you health and best interest at heart.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman.
My treatment cycle runs about $1700.00 per month with the 3rd month 1/2 price. Right now we have had to pause treatment so we could save up the money. My insurance covered diagnostics.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
As Dr. Kovalevsky is a very good doctor in what he does, very intelligent, his bedside manners are lacking and just makes you feel like just another patient and not a person going through something you never imaged as a little girl.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are wonderful, they are very heartwarming with is really nice when to go through this process.
How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
Dr. Kovalevsky is a smart and brilliant doctor just his bedside are lacking. He wouldn't give you hope on the procedure itself, sometimes I left the office asking my husband "so wait what does he want to do"
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
I would have a meeting with all the doctors in the office
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My first round of retrieval, he used the minimum low dosage of medication, when before it was to end I was called by another doctor to tell me the medicine wasn't doing its job and I looked like a 40 year old woman and not a 28 year old. Round two of medicine worked better and cost more but I wish he would have sat down and ask us what we wanted to do.. 2 Rounds of medicine was hard on both of us.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
I never had to be monitored for anything. So far everything has come back it has not worked.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky.
Our whole process at this time is about $20,000 that includes medications

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I have enjoyed working with Dr. McGuirk and her staff through my infertility journey thus far. Dr. McGuirk removed a uterine septum in 2017 and before I had even woke up from the anesthesia she went out to the waiting room and sat with my mother and husband and explained every thing that was done during the procedure. Such a relief to my family.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing department is excellent. They answers questions very quickly and have always been friendly to me and my husband
How was your experience with Barbara McGuirk?
My experience as a patient of Dr. McGuirk thus far is beyond measure. She has always kept our best interest at heart. When we had a miscarriage in 2016, we changed our plan and removed my uterine septum first, now we are our on first round of letrozole with injection. Dr. McGuirk has always been very up front and explained the process in detail to us, answered all our questions and is genuinely concerned about me and our future children's well being. A outstanding doctor and expert.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Barbara McGuirk?
Be prepared for the honest truth.
Describe the protocols Barbara McGuirk used in your cycles and their degree of success.
When we first met with Dr. McGuirk, the plan was go undergo some tests to find out if my tubes were open, etc. When my husband and I got pregnant unexpectedly, we changed to the plan to remove my uterine septum and start trying to conceive shortly thereafter. After trying for 7 months and no luck we have now moved to ovulation meds and are working on the first cycle of that.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Barbara McGuirk.
The costs are based on your insurance coverage. Infertility treatment isn't cheap.

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
Dr. Kovalevsky is very knowledgeable and explains procedures & risks well. I initially felt very comfortable with him but then as we moved further along into a second cycle I didn’t feel like there was a personal relationship at all with him. He would get very uncomfortable if I showed emotion & cried, only to ask me if I needed to see a therapist. Also, I worked at the same surgery center that he works at 1 day a week & I would say hello as I passed him in the hall & he wouldn’t even acknowledge me let alone remember I was his patient!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
He is very honest & blunt. He is knowledgeable but do not expect a warm & fuzzy demeanor.
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles and their degree of success.
First retrieval I was on follistim twice a day & low dose hcg. I responded quickly & was placed on ganirelix on day 4 of stim meds. Day 9 of the cycle Dr. K scanned me & told me I might get 4 eggs at best & asked if we wanted to cancel the cycle. I cried bc this was the first I was hearing about this! I ended up triggering that day for a retrieval on cycle day 11. A different doctor performed my retrieval and got 10 eggs! A lot more than 4! Ended up with 3 blastocysts.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
You are not always seen by the same provider so interpretation of labs as well as u/s results varied.

What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman?
dont be afraid to ask questions
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I am single and want to have a baby, I also have pcos. After the testing (labs, hsg, saline sono) We started with Clomid and moved to letrozole , then follistim with the intention of doing iui with donor sperm. My follicles never grew so we moved to ivf but did a mini stim cycle because she felt I would get a lot of eggs with my retrieval (which I did). This helped cut down the costs as well. In between all of this I have had 3 hysteroscopies to remove polyps. I've had 3 transfers (one fresh and two frozen) pgs testing was offered to me from the beginning but I chose not to do it then because I didn't have any risk factors. My first transfer ended in a miscarriage at 5 weeks. My next transfer was unsuccessful. We the revisited the pgs testing and did that. Unfortunately my last transfer ended in a chemical pregnancy. After that we did a recurrent loss workup with normal results. I am waiting on results from an endometrial receptivity aray. After that I will decide when to do my next transfer. I feel I need a little bit of a hormone free break and dr. Bachman is in full support of that. I have 5 embryos remaining and she remains hopeful that I will get pregnant
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Pretty organized. I usually went first thing in the morning to avoid a long wait

They [Reproductive Associates of DE] have a lot of patients, and sometimes you have to wait a while after your scheduled appointment time. Besides that, however, I have never once felt like “just a number”. I think the wait time can be long because they are taking their time with patients.... Without insurance, we paid $10,000 for potential multiple cycles until pregnancy. The cost did not include medications, but did include monitoring, ultrasounds, and the pregnancy bloodwork.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Associates of Delaware.
They have a lot of patients, and sometimes you have to wait a while after your scheduled appointment time. Besides that, however, I have never once felt like “just a number”. I think the wait time can be long because they are taking their time with patients.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
She took the time to answer all questions, no matter how small or silly. She made small talk and really acted like she was invested in our success.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Sometimes the wait was a bit long, but every person I encountered was friendly, caring, and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable.
How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt?
Dr. Neithardt is patient, honest, compassionate, and knowledgable. She takes the time to explain everything in a way that can be understood. She makes sure her patients are as comfortable as they can be in stressful circumstances.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt?
Be open and honest with her, she is willing to listen.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We tried clomid, then letrazole (I think) initially, but my body wasn’t properly responding, so we cancelled the cycle. Because we were self-pay at the time, she explained that we could keep trying with the medications or potentially try IUI, but the likelihood of success was small and we would quickly exhaust our funds. She recommended IVF at that point, which we agreed was the best course of action. Based on my age and health, we did mini-stim IVF. After the egg retrieval, my body wasn’t responding appropriately, so we reset while my embryos were frozen (5 day). A couple months later we did the transfer and it was successful. I’m currently in a new cycle. I had the transfer one week ago and am waiting on the results.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
See previous comment on the clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt.
Without insurance, we paid $10,000 for potential multiple cycles until pregnancy. The cost did not include medications, but did include monitoring, ultrasounds, and the pregnancy bloodwork. My new insurance is covering my second round, and I paid an approximately $1,400 copay, not including medication, which came to about $30.00

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was very honest and interested in what o had to say. He really seemed to care and took my opinion and past experiences into account. We only ran tests to try and find out if I was, as I put it, barren or not bit that's all we needed. He works with me to help find the problem!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Super friendly, helpful, and overall pleasant. They were knowledgeable and never rude or showing impatience. Answered any questions I had no .matter how silly I thought they were.
How was your experience with Ronald Feinberg?
I came to him with concerns about my ability to become pregnant after nearly a year and half of trying. I was unsure where to start and he was compassionate and understanding. He ordered multiple tests to understand my personal situation and how we could best go about my fertility. I don't see him long so I don't have anything negative I recall such as weaknesses and that jazz. I only had positive experiences with him.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ronald Feinberg?
Do your research and make sure you have a list of questions ready for him to answer so you get all the information you want.
Describe the protocols Ronald Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
All we did was test different ways to check my fertility. After the one test where they inject dye into your uterus to check your tubes, I was able to get pregnant. We believe it may have just been blocked tubes
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ronald Feinberg.
I remember my insurance not willing to pay for the services and the billing department worked with me to make it affordable! They were knowledgeable and friendly. Only wanting to help and not burden me with bills I couldn't pay so they helped find a way to make it work for me

Describe your experience with Reproductive Associates of Delaware.
efficient, clean, welcoming
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Felt like he was personally invested, he even came in on a day off to do a transfer himself. The only thing I would have liked to see different was for him to follow up after a transfer and after a negative pregnancy test. You don't really get to see him until the day of a transfer.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were all wonderful. They were understanding and sympathetic and I felt like the all cared.
How was your experience with Ronald Feinberg?
He was very helpful when we saw him, he gave us our daughter so we are forever indebted to him and the practice. He came in on a day off to do a transfer himself so I did feel like he was invested. However, other than the initial consultations and transfers, you never got to see him. You dealt strictly with the nurses and clinical staff (who were wonderful). I also wish he would have been a little more firm in what he thought the best course of action for our situation was. I would ask questions about some form of treatment I had heard of that was successful for a friend, or ask about IUI before doing IVF and a lot of the time he would say that we could try it, whereas I'd prefer someone being a little more blunt or firm with why those options weren't a good idea.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ronald Feinberg?
Ask him what he thinks is truly the best option for you. Ask him to be blunt and what he would do in your shoes so you don't waste time on things that more than likely won't work.
Describe the protocols Ronald Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't remember the protocols

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
Dr. Kovalevsky was very straight to the point. He is extremely knowledgeable. I trusted him with every decision he made. He does not have the best bed side Manor. When I had concerns about the number of embryos we lost he wasn’t very comforting.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
If you’re looking for a doctor who comforts you, you may want to look at a different physician in the practice.

Dr. Kovalevsky was very thorough in planning for our IVF cycle. He looked for anything that should be addressed prior to the cycle. I overstimulated and he ensured that I was safe and monitored.
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky.
The billing department ensured that my insurance covered anything they could find. They assisted me with estimating costs. There was a medication that we could not afford and they happened to have it donated by another patient and they gave it to us. That is what made IVF possible for us. They referred me to specific pharmacies that had the best pricing for certain medications.

RAD has a great portal system to keep track of your appointments and communicate with the staff. I wish that results had been available on the portal, however. I dealt a lot with Stephanie, the genetic counselor, and she was very helpful in explaining my diagnosis and providing resources.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Bachman is such a warm and inviting person to speak to. She greets you with a hug and listens to your concerns empathetically. I received numerous calls from her after failed cycles to check in with how I was doing. I never felt rushed or like I was holding her up. The office staff also got to know my name and our story by the last few cycles we did there. We left this clinic due to a change in location.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was friendly and knew our story and my name by the end of our time with them.
How was your experience with Emelia Bachman?
Dr. Bachman always took the time to explain our results and our treatment options in terms that my husband and I would understand. She is a very compassionate physician who makes you feel comfortable about asking questions and voicing your concerns.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman?
When seeing any fertility doctor, I recommend writing down questions before your appointment so you don't forget anything. Also, take notes during the appointment.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was fortunate to qualify for and participate in a clinical trial (Megaset) that provided us an IVF cycle with PGS testing with little cost to us. We jumped at this opportunity pretty quickly after our initial consult. At the time, we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. During the cycle, I had 52 eggs retrieved, 23 mature, 20 fertilized and 9 blastocysts. Of those 9, 3 came back PGS "normal". At this point after looking at these PGS results and doing a karyotype on my husband and I, I was diagnosed with a chromosome abnormality which causes infertility and recurrent miscarriages. We transferred our 3 embryos with 3 separate transfers and none took. We also did 2 Clomid IUIs with good responses which also did not work. At this point, we have moved and started treatment at a more convenient location.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman.
Our monitoring, meds and retrieval and first transfer costs were mostly covered except about $1800. the two additional transfers were about $4000 each. I had IUI coverage through my insurance so just $25 copays a visit.

One is the regular office for bloodwork etc. and the second is for egg retrieval and IVF. This isn't super clear if you go for the first time on a Saturday! The Wilmington office is smaller and I found it easier to navigate and less stressful.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Bachman and all of the staff at RAD knew my name, my story, about my personal life etc. When I was having a hard time emotionally, they always took the time to talk or hug or whatever I needed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at RAD was great. I went to the smaller satellite office in Wilmington and the folks there were friendly and compassionate.
How was your experience with Emelia Bachman?
Dr. Bachman was wonderful and warm. She was also thorough and knowledgeable. Before prescribing a treatment plan or making a diagnosis, she was very thorough in testing both my husband and I. This made me feel more confident that we'd know all of the issues in advance and not continue to run into stumbling blocks. She took the time to sit down and talk things through. When I was having a hard time, or frustrated, she would spend additional time to make sure that I was ok emotionally. When I felt like I might need a break, she was encouraging with that too.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Emelia Bachman?
Be honest about how you're feeling and ask questions.
Describe the protocols Emelia Bachman used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did a series of tests at first that led Dr. Bachman to believe that there might be a leak in one of my fallopian tubes. She performed a laproscopic surgery to assess whether or not it could be fixed or if needed to be removed. Luckily, the tube was a wonky shape causing it to look like it was leaking in the tests, but it did not require any additional work. Afterwards, she started me on letrozole and ovidrel. Letrozole because my family has a history of breast cancer and it has less of a side effect. Unfortunately, my body did not respond to the letrozole after two cycles and we discontinued in favor of clomid. I did three cycles of clomid with ovidrel which was successful on the third round. I also had a progesterone supplement which i continued to use throughout my first trimester.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Emelia Bachman.
My insurance covered the majority of my treatments. I believe I had about a $25 charge with each standard bloodwork/monitoring appointment and about $50 for other more intensive appointments.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The cycles are set up to create ease for the clinic, not the patient. Everyone is on the same schedule and begins IVF at the same time. This can sometimes feel impersonal.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The staff is overall very welcoming and warm. I felt at ease to ask questions.
How was your experience with Adrienne Neithardt?
Dr. Niethardt is extremely smart and likable. It was always pleasant to see her though I didn't often see her as much as I would have liked. Her office is in Wilmington but nearly every appointment after consultation is in Newark. She was compassionate and checked in occasionally.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Adrienne Neithardt?
You must write down and ask all the questions you have. This process can be very confusing.
Describe the protocols Adrienne Neithardt used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Medicated IUI with clomid three times IVF with 450ml Gonal daily and Cetrotide and low dose HCG IVF with 100 clomid and 300 Gonal
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Monitoring was difficult because I begin work at 7am and the earliest hours were 6:30am. There would often be people lined up at 6:20am for monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Adrienne Neithardt.
IVF with 20% coinsurance cost approximately $2300. Out of pocket transfer $4200. Medications per cycle between $1000-2500

Describe the protocols Ronald Feinberg used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Ivf: I started on the pill to get my cycle on the dates they wanted. Meds (can’t remember names): injections in the belly to build up egg production, egg retrieval, embryos created, 1 embryo transfer. We did only one each time because of my age and that our infertility was from the male side
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ronald Feinberg.
Insurance covered most of my cycle costs. When I did have out of pocket expenses, the office was very helpful and worked with me.

As far as appointments and scheduling there were good.... We did 4 rounds of clomid and I initially responded well. During the 4 cycle the stimulation was taking longer and my body was not reacting as well. At that point she told me she thought ivf was my best bet and she thought my chances of success would be very high. She was right!

How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
Dr. Kovalesky was the very first fertility doctor we saw. He always kept things real with us, treated us like we were family, and was a straight shooter with what we should do next. When we had failures, he adjusted the plans and talked us through. When we finally had success, he was there to keep us calm and hopeful that our pregnancy would be fine. Dr kovalesky gave us our greatest blessing, and for that, we will be forever greatful to him!♡
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
Dr. Kovalesky will be very thorough in his delivery. He will tell you like it is, and answer any questions you may jave. Take as long as you like in your appointments, he won't rush you out! If you want the truth, he will give it, just ask!
Describe the protocols George Kovalevsky used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Due to my PCOS, we started with Clomid and tried to use timed sex. When that did not work, we moved on to our procedure. We have a few failed cycles, and then we decided to take a break. I remember Dr. K said I needed my bmi below 30, so during our break we worked on that. We came back, used Clomid again with an iui, and we were blessed with my handsome son!
Describe the costs associated with your care under George Kovalevsky.
Every appointment was a 30 dollar copay. Each out was at least 1200 for the procedure. So, we cleared our lifetime insurance amount of 20k, and easily matched that in procedures and copays.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
They absolutely treated me as a human being. With more compassion than any other doctor I have ever seen for any ailment. On my second IUI I got pregnant with twins, but unfortunately lost one twin at 9 weeks (which is very common). I knew before the nurse could tell me that there was no heartbeat and she expressed the utmost care and sympathy for me. She gave me a warm hug that meant the world to me. I will never forget it or her. Her name was Rhonda.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I can't put my finger on it. They are just the most compassionate people. I am not sure if they are put through a vigorous training period on how to deal with families dealing with fertility, but I have never been to a doctor's office before or since that has made me feel so loved. When I was 13 weeks pregnant I was "released" to my OBGYN, and I was extremely sad that they could not follow me through to birth. That is how much I love them!
How was your experience with George Kovalevsky?
I cannot express how much I love the doctors, nurses, receptionists, lab tech...everyone at RAD. They provided me with all the information I needed and addressed all our concerns. They handled every aspect of our insurance, we never had to contact our carrier for anything. It was the best experience we could have ever have imagined.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of George Kovalevsky?
Be patient. It is very difficult, but they are there for you. They are there to get the best outcome for you as a patient, mother and friend. We had a lot of issues before we got to the IUI's. My thyroid acted up, hyperplasia, you name it. But breaking it down to the actual "treatment" time, we started clomid in April/May and were pregnant by Sept. Do not be afraid to ask questions, do not be afraid to ask if you can have pictures of sonograms. We have sonograms of our son from when he was just an egg in a follicle!
