During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Vasquez will spend a ton of time with you explaining things, often at the expense of other patients. However, he usually has the same speech each time no matter the outcome of your treatment. The financial and front office staff were great. The IVF nurse is very knowledgeable but so busy that she is often snarky.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
There is only one IVF coordinator. She is very through but is too busy for questions. She is often harsh and snarky.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Jaime Vasquez?
Dr. Vasquez can be difficult to understand because of his accent. He goes off on storytelling tangents. He is horrible with follow up and has no time management skills. He will spend hours talking with you if that is what you want but he will say the same thing at every visit.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jaime Vasquez?
Advocate for yourself, be prepared to wait a long time if you have to see him. He will automatically tell you that IVF is the answer and will inflate your chance of success. He has long wait times because he is the only dr and is very controlling of how things are done. He will have no clue about your case until he reads the file in front of you.
Describe the protocols Jaime Vasquez used in your cycles and their degree of success.
He said I had Diminished Ovarian Reserve and prescribed way too much medication to produce eggs. I spent an extra $1700 on meds that were not used.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jaime Vasquez.
IVF $13000 Meds $6000 ($1700 were unnecessary, so i had to donate them to the clinic) $3000 for emergency surgery for ectopic pregnancy that could have been solved with medication if monitored properly.

Once I became an IVF patient, even though I saw several people during my visits, I had the contact number of one person - the IVF coordinator [at Center for Reproductive Health]- who I knew I could call anytime. She was the person who made all of my appointments for us, she did all of our education, and she was who called us with the great news after the transfer. When she called to check in tell me my numbers from that day's tests and or change my dosage, I never had to remind her of what was going on with me. She remembered my history, my present, and my goals. I know she had 10+ patients at that same time, yet she made me feel like I was her one and only.

Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Health of TN.
No weaknesses! I honestly can't think of anything I would change about the clinic overall - unless it would be to move it closer to my town! It's currently 2 hours away.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
As a nurse myself, I know how patients can blend together and how necessary it is and sometimes more difficult it is to make sure to put forth the extra effort to treat a patient like a human and not a number. Once I became an IVF patient, even though I saw several people during my visits, I had the contact number of one person - the IVF coordinator - who I knew I could call anytime. She was the person who made all of my appointments for us, she did all of our education, and she was who called us with the great news after the transfer. When she called to check in tell me my numbers from that day's tests and or change my dosage, I never had to remind her of what was going on with me. She remembered my history, my present, and my goals. I know she had 10+ patients at that same time, yet she made me feel like I was her one and only. Also, Dr. V himself took careful and generous time to speak with me every time I was at the clinic for anything other than an egg count and blood draw. Not only did he answer all my questions, he made sure I felt comfortable before jumping right into "business as usual". I never felt like I was being rushed around. Years later, we're back again for our another cycle, trying to conceive our second child, and I saw the birth announcement up on the wall that I sent them from our first child. Framed and everything. I know birth announcements are all over the walls there (main reason I mailed them one!) but it still made me feel special to see my own son's announcement.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
One nurse handled the small initial stuff each visit: weight, blood pressure, etc. She was sweet, fast, and efficient. Then a tech would draw my blood. Best sticker I've ever had! Thank goodness too because I had so many blood draws, I couldn't keep count! Then an ultrasound tech performed my egg count ultrasound. She was very respectful and gentle. She took careful time counting and measuring so I was confident in her findings. Then my IVF coordinator would call by the end of the day to tell me my numbers from that day's visit and tell me my dosage change if there was one (Dr. V would review my numbers and change my dosage as necessary). She would then tell me when I needed to come back for another round of blood draws and ultrasound. She was always efficient because she had plenty more patients to call, but made sure I understood the dosage I would be taking that night and the following day. I was never left questioning my next move.
How was your experience with Jaime Vasquez?
He is from South America so he is slightly difficult to understand at times but I feel like he knows that so he was careful to speak clearly and slowly when explaining things. He doesn't get right "done to business" when you meet with him. He takes time to make sure you're comfortable, chit chats for a while about himself and his family, which I appreciate because I believes that build trusts. He also asks friendly and honest questions, which even further builds trusts. He's a Christian, which I didn't know beforehand but that definitely sealed the deal for us. At the same time, he only became open about that after we told him we were Christian so I don't think he would push his beliefs as such on anyone. He considered our thoughts and opinions on different matters but was firm in telling us his scientific opinions, which helped us decide on a few things. His bedside manner is spot on. He talks quiet a lot and pauses for thought and affect.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jaime Vasquez?
Don't open up a conversation if you're interested in getting out of his office fast. And don't ask too many questions about his stories... He's a sweet man but he'll talk your hear off!
Describe the protocols Jaime Vasquez used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Unfortunately, it was almost 3 years ago when we were going through our first cycle for our first child (we're starting our first cycle with our second child in May), so I don't remember a lot of specifics. A lot of injections. A lot of needles. A lot of blood draws and ultrasounds. 33 eggs were removed. 18 were fertilized, 11 embryos were successful. We transferred 2 fresh embryos and froze the other 9. One embryo took and our son just turned 2 years old on April 1st, 2017!
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Monitoring appointments were very efficient and well planned out. The longest I had to wait was 15 minutes but I was usually in there and out within 15 minutes!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jaime Vasquez.
One cycle, without genetic testing, including all medications and supply as well, costs about $18,000 when it was all said and done.

He [Dr. Jaime Vasquez at The Center for Reproductive Health of TN] didnt explain anything to us and we were very new to infertility. He sent us home with all sorts of prescriptions and said we will see you back in...this amount of time. No explanation what they were for or anything.... He didn't even know is from appointment to appointment. I understand that we were not pursuing fertility treatments full on at that point, but we felt like he was just giving us an answer to appease us, not an actual answer.

Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Health of TN.
A lot of talking happens without actually giving any information.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He didn't even know is from appointment to appointment. I understand that we were not pursuing fertility treatments full on at that point, but we felt like he was just giving us an answer to appease us, not an actual answer.
How was your experience with Jaime Vasquez?
I felt like we were just a check mark on his list for the day. He didn't actually care about what we were saying or how we felt about treatments. We didn't pursue treatments with him for this reason.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jaime Vasquez?
Voice your opinions, again and again. Make him listen.
Describe the protocols Jaime Vasquez used in your cycles and their degree of success.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Jaime Vasquez.
My husband was in the military at the time so tricare took care of most cost associated with our care. But they literally only did he minim of what was covered by tri-care, it wasn't much.

He [Dr. Vasquez] said I most likely have DOR (diminished ovarian reserve) because it took SO much medication to stimulate me [at the Center for Reproductive Health of TN]. When I asked him to explain he said that most people take around 2 vials per day of Repronex, yet I ended up taking anywhere from 6 – 12 per day!! Here's the problem – if he just now figured that out then WHY did he order me 14 boxes of Repronex AND start me on 8 vials the very first day??? We also talked about the iui and why it was performed 2 hours after the trigger. Dr. V says that there is no reason to perform an iui later because it makes no difference.

Describe your experience with The Center for Reproductive Health of TN.
Anita is wonderful. Her communication and compassion are second to none. Don't let Dr. V's amazing bedside manner fool you into believing what he says. He tells you what you want to hear until he gets caught.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Vasquez was, by far, the most compassionate dr I've ever dealt with. When he is with you, he is all yours for as long as you need him. He makes you feel as if you are his only patient.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Anita was wonderful, compassionate, and very timely on responses, etc.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Canceled a cycle due to clinic error
How was your experience with Jaime Vasquez?
As much as I have never met a more compassionate doctor, I have also never met a more dishonest one. He flat out lied to me on multiple occasions and very much would just tell you what you wanted to hear.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jaime Vasquez?

Describe the protocols Jaime Vasquez used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Lupron and Repronex - cycle cancelled on retrieval day because the trigger shot didn't work.
