Describe your experience with RMA of Texas.
The clinic is small and cozy. It is well decorated and relaxing and there was never more than one other person in the waiting room in all my visits. Also I never waited more than 5 minutes for an appointment and the doctor was never double-booked for an appointment time (unlike other clinics in town we tried). The clinic staff is also well organized and easy to deal with in case of insurance issues or other admin questions.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I always felt like a human, the practice seemed relatively small, never a long wait or crowded waiting room, and the doctors, nurses, and staff were always warm and friendly and answered any questions I had quickly and thoroughly.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I had one primary nurse who took care of my case and scheduling, she was very organized and good at explaining all the steps. She was also very thorough at our IVF class where we discussed my calendar and medications. Also, the rest of the staff including the other nurses and those who took blood and helped out with my retrieval and transfer were great. They make you feel welcome and I remember during my transfer having nearly all the nurses who worked with me while I was being treated in the room keeping my company and wishing me well.
How was your experience with Amanda Skillern?
Dr. Skillern is not the most touchy-feely, but she is very honest and pretty easy to talk to. She was completely up-front with us from the get-go, and seemed to communicate with myself and my husband as equals. Also, did every appointment except for blood draws, and was always willing to answer a call or email if I had questions.
Describe the protocols Amanda Skillern used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I used the antagonist protocol, with a couple weeks of birth control pills before starting stims. Because of my large follicle count, and risk of OHSS, we planned a freeze-all cycle from the beginning. I started off with relatively conservative dosage amounts of Menopur and Follistim and did reduce as we moved forward. Also, since we did a freeze-all, I triggered with Luperon instead of HCG. I started with 24 eggs retrieved, 20 were mature, and 17 fertilized with ICSI. After six days, I had six remaining embryos for transfer. I was able to transfer my next cycle, after a hysteroscopy to double-check my uterus. Because of the grades of my embryos, we transferred one and it was successful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Amanda Skillern.
Unfortunately I did not have insurance coverage for IVF. The clinic offers a service that provided a "bundle price" for the procedure plus medications that was lower than the "list price." For all meds, plus IVF, plus a frozen transfer I paid roughly $16,000. The clinic does a good job billing what they can to insurance and they helped me out writing care summaries and letters to insurance to get me a couple claims covered that were originally denied.

I was fortunate enough to have insurance that covered IVF [at RMA of Taxas in Austin]. I only had to pay 20% after my deductible was met. I did pay for CCS services and that was $2,500 I think cash payment of IVF ranged from 10k-25k...All the staff were fantastic! I had a fertility coach who helped guide me with our plan and medications. She was great at helping and always was available to answer questions.

Describe your experience with RMA of Texas.
Great! Clean and modern. Staff was fantastic and felt like home. I was kind of sad to be released to my OB because I had been ther so often.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was so great with our care. She was very honest and transparent. No sugar coating. She knew me and my husband and made me feel very comfortable. I never felt like their office was extremely busy and they were getting me in and out. I always had great conversation and she answered all my questions. She even gave me her email address if I needed anything.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
How was your experience with Amanda Skillern?
Got pregnant on our 1st round of IVF with RMA under her care. She was fantastic and I highly recommend. She always set expectations and was in every appointment besides blood draws. Loved her!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Amanda Skillern?
She will be very frank with you and not sugar coat. She does not talk to much about the future and talks about today and the next step. I'm a huge planner, so it took me awhile to adjust to this, but with infertility it was the best for me. You can't plan to far ahead with this. You need to be in the moment and think about today and the next appointment and what needs to be done between then.

Be sure to come prepared with any questions you have in advance. The baseline examinations are very quick. If you have questions during a procedure, be sure to let them know you have questions and they need to be answered.

You are in good hands. Trust Dr. Brown and her treatment plan.
Describe the protocols Aimee Browne used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had HSG in September 2016 performed by Dr. Brown. The result showed that my tubes were clear. We had our first IUI in November 2016. I was on 5mg of letrozole from CD3-CD7. I had my initial ultrasound on CD 3, and a second ultrasound on CD 11. The second ultrasound showed that I had a follicle on my left side with 17mm in diameter. I was told to do the trigger shot on CD 12 at 9pm, and had the IUI on CD 14 at 9am. We also followed the RE's instruction to have intercourse again on the same day CD 14 at night. I started the progesterone suppositories twice a day since DPO 3. I found out I was pregnant on DPO 12. I just gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week, and I am so grateful to have this baby.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Aimee Browne.
My insurance covers up to 6 IUI.

Describe your experience with your nurse.
Beyond compare!!!The epitome of exceptional care and dedication. They were thorough, empathetic and informative every step of the way
How was your experience with Francisco Arredondo?
Clear communicator, intelligent, empathetic, knowledgeable and genuine. He was a man first, and wanted to know about every aspect of my worklife, social life and health. I knew that I could reach out to him if I needed anything or felt I had substandard care. Luckily, that never happened. He spoke to my husband and I in a very direct and professional manner, addressing concerns about our infertility. Hemade a plan, stuck to it and the result was pregnancy.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Francisco Arredondo?
Trust the process!!!! It may be long, but if you trust in it, the results speak for themselves.
Describe the protocols Francisco Arredondo used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Stimulation was lupron, menopur ganirelix and lupron trigger. 30 eggs retrieved, 20 fertilized, 6 made it to day 5 for biopsy. Fet was long lupron cycle, estrace and endometrin. Transferred 1 and positive bloodtest 2 weeks later
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Convenient and very organized. Always have time slots available for me to fit into my morning
Describe the costs associated with your care under Francisco Arredondo.
I have had a rocky road with the billing and insurance process, not at the fault of the clinic, but with the insurance paying claims timely. Up front costs were reasonable and paid automatically from my hsa. Claims had to be reevaluated with the insurance to hit the correct fertility coverage, and the clinic constantly worked with me.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Balthazar understood that our desire was to start a family. She made us feel like our case was a priority to her. At our initial appointment, we got answers and the prescriptions we needed. There wasn't any hassle to it, and she didn't seem the least bit inconvenienced. She took her time explaining everything to us and never made us feel like anything was wrong with us because we couldn't get pregnant on our own.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

How was your experience with Ursula Balthazar?
Dr. Balthazar explains everything in a way that people who aren't physicians can understand. She helps to create a plan with you and your spouse that suits your needs, your desired outcomes, and what you are comfortable with in terms of invasive fertility treatments. She also will express her concerns openly, but in a gentle and caring manner. For us, her concern was the possibility of having multiples. She did everything in her power to make sure we were able to get pregnant with the singleton that we so wanted.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ursula Balthazar?
If you are searching for a doctor who is compassionate and who is going to guide you through this tough patch with grace and humor, Dr. Balthazar is the fertility doctor for you.
Describe the protocols Ursula Balthazar used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Since I have PCOS, Dr. Balthazar had to find a way to make me ovulate. She took a look at my ovaries via an internal sonogram and showed my husband and I my "classic" case of PCOS. Since I am still young, she didn't feel like Clomid would be effective. The side effects can be harsch and she didn't think it would be worth it. After having my Hysterosalpingogram to see that my fallopian tubes were open and functioning (as well as my husband having his sperm checked to ensure that he was not part of the issue) and a variety of blood tests, she prescribed a 5 day long dose of Letrozole. She explained possible side effects but I chose to take the drug at night, before I went to sleep, to avoid any nausea. I had absolutely no side effects from taking the drug. I went back to the clinic about 10 days later for my second internal sonogram and the drug had worked. I had 4 potential eggs that could "win out" and be ovulated that month. This was good news and bad news for Dr. Balthazar. She brought me back in about 4 days later to check via internal sonogram to make sure it would be safe to try to conceive. Fortunately, only 2 follicles had finished maturing and would be ovulated. She had me use an at home ovulation kit to determine the exact day that my husband and I would need. This was also a money saving factor- my insurance did not cover any treatments. About 2 weeks later, an at home pregnancy test (also to save money) revealed that I was pregnant after only one round of Letrozole. Again, since I am only in my 20's and to save money, Dr. Balthazar had me follow up with my own OB-GYN since those visits would be covered by insurance. I was sad to no longer be working with her, but my husband I look forward to seeing her again when we want to have a second child.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ursula Balthazar.
We spent $700 total for the Hysterosalpingogram, blood work, sperm analysis, 3 internal sonograms, and 3 separate appointments where we were seen by Dr. Balthazar each time.

I went through a lot of procedures with RMA. With each new procedure there was a "discount" that was applied. Once or twice, when I ran out of medication and needed a very small amount to finish my protocol, they were able to provide me with the medication.... Erica [a nurse] was a good communicator and answered our questions during our first procedure. Her communication, management and follow through of our case and protocols steadily declined with each procedure. By the end, I felt like I was managing my own case. Guess she assumed we knew what we were doing, which should never be the case. The fact that we were working with Dr. Balthazar may have also been an issue.

Describe your experience with RMA of Texas.
In my opinion, RMA at Stone Oak is the best fertility clinic in San Antonio, based on my experience and talking with other women about their experiences. They are very organized, well-educated, and run a successful clinic. They will be able to answer your questions and give you an honest assessment of potential issues and solutions. With that said, I feel like lately they are very focused on increasing their volume of patients. They have started running advertisements on television for their clinic and promoting INVOcell. The positive in this is that INVOcell is less expensive and less invasive than other forms of IVF so if you are a candidate, that is great news. But again, it feels like it's becoming more of a competition for largest volume of patients at the clinic.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Balthazar is a very warm, friendly and enthusiastic doctor. She will call you and your partner by name - and actually knows it, not just from a chart. She knew our case well, indicated that she thought about our case often, and even walked us through her thought process for each procedure. She has a warm, energetic and upbeat bedside manner and is willing to answer any question you have of her. She is also very good at responding to emails.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I think Erica generally supports Dr. Arredondo, but she continued to support us when we switched to Dr. Balthazar. Erica was a good communicator and answered our questions during our first procedure. Her communication, management and follow through of our case and protocols steadily declined with each procedure. By the end, I felt like I was managing my own case. Guess she assumed we knew what we were doing, which should never be the case. The fact that we were working with Dr. Balthazar may have also been an issue.
How was your experience with Ursula Balthazar?
We initially worked with Dr. Arredondo at RMA-Stone Oak, but had interactions with Dr. Balthazar during some of our visits. After a few procedures with Dr. Arredondo, I asked to be switched to Dr. Balthazar as our main doctor to interact with because she had a much more friendly and positive bedside manner. All the doctors at the RMA clinic discuss all of their cases, so it was our preference to interact with Dr. Balthazar more than other doctors there. Dr. Balthazar brings a lot of energy to your case. While being realistic with outcomes (she doesn't promise it will work), she is very upbeat and a huge cheerleader for you. She'll let you know if something doesn't look right and explains why she is suggesting a certain protocol. She will know you and your partner by name and does a great job communicating in person and over email.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ursula Balthazar?
Some people may find Dr. Balthazar's energy overwhelming. She can be loud. However, she is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and will be a champion for you. I highly recommend her.
Describe the protocols Ursula Balthazar used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We went through three rounds of frozen embryo transfer. I do remember that after our first unsuccessful round, my husband and I saw a news report on ERA testing, which determines an individual's implantation window. We brought it up with Dr. Balthazar at the time and we discussed it. It was a very new test at the time. After discussing it, however, it was determined to not do ERA testing because the protocol recommended was different than the first round. After our failed second frozen embryo transfer, it was decided we should go through the ERA testing. We did the ERA test and it turns out my implantation window was different than when we had been transferring in the past. The third frozen embryo attempt failed as well, so I don't know if the ERA test would have worked in round 2 or not. However, I know that ERA testing is being used quite a bit now at RMA. My understanding is that doctors don't want patients to go through every single test out there because a lot of the tests may not be needed. Doctors seem to have a process in place for most cases: Try protocol 1 and that works on x% of people. If it doesn't work for you, try protocol 2 and that works for another x% of people. If that doesn't work, try the next protocol...and so on. This is just my observation and from talking to other women going through infertility treatments.

Describe your experience with RMA of Texas.
Strengths-friendly organized clean warm inviting. The only thing I can say was in the beginning they did not explain much to us and we would leave wondering what was next. I understand it’s a process but maybe they should somehow explain that everything will be done in steps and explained as we go. Otherwise I love this clinic, staff and drs. I never felt uncomfortable here and I loved the whole experience.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Going to this clinic they always knew our story and were always on top of where we were in the process. They are honest and made us feel like they want the best for us. Always felt comfortable.

How was your experience with Ursula Balthazar?
Dr was always very enthusiastic when she spoke to us. She was always positive but never gave us false hope. She always explained every step of the process. She always made me feel like she knew me personally and was hoping for the best for us. Very friendly. Best dr I’ve ever encountered.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ursula Balthazar?
Trust in the process and the doctors orders. She will do what’s best and not any less. Asking questions is ok. She will will be honest.
Describe the protocols Ursula Balthazar used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I’m in a same sex relationship. Our choice was for me to carry using my wife’s embryos. We used donor sperm. My wife had a fibroid that had to be removed first in March 2017. The fibroid was blocking one of her ovaries. Once removed the ovary was visible and not so high up. She started estradiol and CoQ10 to help her egg quality since her AMH was low; that was started in June. Dr said the CoQ10 would help with egg quality and the longer she was on it the better. She then started birth control to control her cycle in July. Fertility meds started in August were Lupron, Follistim and Menopur. That was for about 11 days before egg retrieval. We retrieved 3 mature eggs and only one made it to day five for freezing. I started birth control in September and Lupron injections. I started Estrace in October and my baseline showed that my lining was too thick I believe it was at a 18-19. So we canceled the protocol. I restarted birth control in Nov this time without the Lupron. I did start the Estrace again and continued with progesterone injections, Endometrin doxycycline and Medrol. However in the beginning of Nov I went in to have a hysteroscopy with Dr Balthazar since my lining was so thick and I have heavy cycles. She removed polyps that lined my uterus. Having this done my lining looked a lot better. However the day of the transfer it was still very thick at about 17 or around there. Dr Balthazar advised since we’ve done everything we could do we would move forward with the transfer. Transfer day was Dec 4th and I tested negative Dec 14th. We have a follow up next week.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ursula Balthazar.
The reciprocal ivf cycle cost was $15,950. Mental health counseling was about $150. Medications costs about $7,000.

overall the staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and doctors know what they are doing there. Staff is willing to work with you on scheduling as appropriate. The facilities are generally nice and clean. The hours of operation are generally about 7 to 4 or 4:30, so if early morning appointments work for you, this clinic is a good fit. They don't work late in the evenings. RMA also has a Facebook page, which is generally helpful in getting information out about the clinic, staff and events.

Describe your experience with RMA of Texas.
I think RMA at Stone Oak is the best place to go for treatment in San Antonio. It has it's pros and cons, but overall the staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and doctors know what they are doing there. Staff is willing to work with you on scheduling as appropriate. The facilities are generally nice and clean. The hours of operation are generally about 7 to 4 or 4:30, so if early morning appointments work for you, this clinic is a good fit. They don't work late in the evenings. RMA also has a Facebook page, which is generally helpful in getting information out about the clinic, staff and events.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Arredondo is very intelligent and runs the RMA clinic. My husband and I saw him for over 2 years, and I don't believe he knows our names. Our faces maybe, but not names. He has a very neutral, removed bedside manner. I always felt like I had to spit out a question, before he high-tailed it out of the room. With that said, the man is smart and knows what he's doing. However, right now I feel like he is more focused on increasing the number of clients vs. quality and successful care of his current clients.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Our nurse was Erica Salgado and overall, she was okay at her job. Erica was great at answering questions in person and demonstrating how to use medications and do injections. She also generally had a good, empathetic nature about her. However, she was not very organized. On numerous occasions, I had to reach out to her to ask questions or move to the next step. She often times didn't respond directly, rather another nurse or doctor would follow-up. I felt like I managed my case and Erica was just a coordinator.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Francisco Arredondo?
Dr. Arredondo runs the RMA clinic and is very knowledgeable on infertility. However, his bedside manner is often lacking. He is very stoic and somewhat removed from the emotional side of infertility. My husband and I saw Dr. Arredondo off and on for 2 years and I don't think he knew our names. He may have known our faces and case, but not our names. At least he never addressed us by our names. My perception is that Dr. Arredondo is more concerned about obtaining new clients and trying cutting edge technology vs. focusing on quality care of current and recurring clients.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Francisco Arredondo?
If you want a lot of interaction with your doctor, a positive bedside manner and to make a personal connection with your doctor, I would not recommend Dr. Arredondo. If you want one of the brightest and creative minds in dealing with infertility and don't mind the issues listed above, Dr. Arredondo is a great choice.
Describe the protocols Francisco Arredondo used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with diminished ovarian reserve. The first round of egg retrieval was very drug heavy with large dosages to see how my body reacted. This resulted in 2 embryos. We did the genetic testing and only one was viable.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Monitoring appointments were pretty quick, easy and painless. They work with you and your schedule to get you in and out as needed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Francisco Arredondo.
I went through 4 rounds of IVF at RMA. The first round was the most expensive and likely cost around $25,000 all in. Each procedure after that was significantly discounted.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My husband & I have been trying to conceive for a total of about 5 years, and the road to starting that family has not been easy. Dr. Balthazar from the start was an extraordinary RE. Our first fresh IVF round took and we were pregnant! Unfortunately at my 8 week sonogram Dr. Balthazar had concerns of our pregnancy being a cornual ectopic. Dr. Balthazar went above and beyond to find the top specialists in San Antonio to give their expertise opinions. When each of them concluded her worst fears, Dr. Balthazar set me up with a world renown surgeon to preform a laparoscopic robotic surgery to remove our pregnancy. Dr. Balthazar was beside me every step of the way. Dr. Balthazar visited me in my room prior to my procedure, explained what was going to happen and why. Dr. Balthazar sat in the surgical room with me, and promised they me they wouldn't take the one thing we had prayed so hard for, without being 100% sure that scans were accurate and termination was in fact the right course of action. After the procedure Dr. Balthazar went with the surgeon to talk to my family and explain how the procedure went. After the procedure she followed up with me extremely closely and showed genuine concern for me as not only as a human being, but as a woman. Upon my first set of testings after the removal of our cornual pregnancy, Dr. Balthazar showed as much as enthusiasm as we had to try to get us that BFP! And after both our FET'S ended in negative betas, & our final embryo was used Dr. Balthazar gave me her sincerest of pep talks. Dr. Balthazar is an extraordinary RE, whom saved my life and has given me a fighting chance at motherhood. There are no words that will ever be able to describe my gratitude for Dr. Balthazar and her staff, I have always felt like my husband and I are their number one priority.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Amy is an amazing nurse & fertility coach. If I ever have any questions or concerns, Amy is more than willing to help in any way that she can. Amy is an excellent nurse with outstanding bedside manner and excellent patient care.
How was your experience with Ursula Balthazar?
Dr. Balthazar is an amazing RE. She has a wonderful bedside manner, prestigious professional input in all protocols, quick to answer any questions or concerns, open to patients desires, and she always puts you as her number one priority. Dr. Balthazar always makes me feel like I am more to her than a patient. She is always so open to understanding your life outside of reproductive medicine. My husband is a frequent international traveler throughout the year, and she always makes sure to find ways to include him in scans, meetings, or appointments. She is always concerned of how I am handling things without him here, especially after the cornual pregnancy and each of our failed FET'S. Dr. Balthazar has become so much more to me than just my RE, she has grown to hold such a special place in my heart. I trust her and know without a doubt she will help get us to where we need to be to get that BFP!!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ursula Balthazar?
The one piece of advice I would give to any future fertility patient (regardless of the doctor) is to go in with questions. Do not rely on Google to answer them.
Describe the protocols Ursula Balthazar used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For my fresh cycle Dr. Balthazar placed me on Lupron, Follistim , Menopur, and PIO (I can't remember if I was on Esterase or not). Baseline scans showed 12 follicles. My IVF cycle resulted in 12 eggs retrieved, 11 mature, 11 fertilized, 9 made it to day 3, and 3 made it to day 5 expanding BB blastocysts. For my FET 1 I was on Lupron, Esterase, Doxycycline, Medrol, and PIO. For FET2 I was on Esterase, Doxycycline, Medrol, and PIO. Due to my husbands international travel we used a frozen sample from him. Throughout it all I have taken 2000IU of Vitamin D3 and a prenatal. Prior to egg retrieval I was placed on CoQ10 600mg.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ursula Balthazar.
Roughly $30,000 for everything. Insurance did not cover any testings, cycle or prescriptions.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I received the best treatment from Dr. Balthazar out of all the doctors I actually saw and all the others I spoke to on the phone. She was the only woman, I don't know if that had anything to do with it. She was more positive & upbeat than any other doctor, by far!

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Ursula Balthazar?
I can't say enough good things. She was so positive & upbeat. After 2 failed cycles at another clinic in NYC, with no resulting viable eggs and several consultations with other doctors, I had very lottle hope left. Dr. Balthazar believed from the beginning that we could get blasts, even after seeing my previous results. She said there was no reason to believe otherwise & she was right! I got the most eggs I had ever gotten (4- which was great for my diagnosis). She wasn't focused on how few follicles I had, unlike the other doctors. She was focused on the quality of the 4 I had. And we got all 4 & all 4 were mature & all 4 fertilized. Every step of the way was an amazing accomplishment. She was always smiling & saying we were going to succeed. No other doctors that I saw were so positive and nice.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ursula Balthazar?
To not waste time with anyone else and go straight to her!
Describe the protocols Ursula Balthazar used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't know the name of the protocol, but it is their diminished ovarian reserve protocol. I think I started with estrogen priming, I know I used birth control after that. I then used Menopur, Follistim and Lupron. Growth Hormone was added later. It was a long protocol, and it worked!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ursula Balthazar.
It was a little over $13,000 for the entire cycle, including anesthesia, ICSI, retrieval, transfer and a follow up ultrasound or two. Then they started billing insurance for follow ups and I paid my co-pay.

Pretty standard big treatment for egg retrieval. Lining was too thick so fresh transfer was cancelled and did a frozen. After the first failed transfer I had a surgery to check my uterus for any abnormalities as well as switched to estrogen patches which resulted in a positive pregnancy test
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ursula Balthazar.
I was very lucky to have amazing insurance coverage but out of pocket medications and all it is close to 5k
