Describe your experience with UC Health Center for Reproductive Health.
It is somewhat newer clinic so they may not have done that many IVFs as some of other clinic in the clinic. But physicians in the clinic are all very well trained, very easy to communicate with and are tailoring to our needs regarding what we prefer in terms of communication style. All staff members are very friendly and very prompt in responding to message and it is very easy to make appointment.
This clinic requires to have deductible paid upfront and that's the only way to get treatment started. I was hoping that they allows pay that after bills come out since it would be rare to have someone not pay an IVF service.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Thakore always tailors my needs instead of just telling me my test result. She puts effort trying to explain the reason behind her decision instead of bluntly telling me to do what was told. She also understands my concerns and will make effort to accommodate them.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
they are very friendly and show compassionate. They responded to my call within the same day and are always addressing my questions
How was your experience with Suruchi Thakore?
Dr. Thakore is very passionate about her patient. She is very straight with what's going on with your cycle but also showed optimization with good back up plan. She explains thing very clearly and is always using evidence to back it up which is what we are hoping for.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Suruchi Thakore?
Sometimes, IVF nurse had taken over significantly amount of communication and I was hoping that I am able to directly talk to Dr. Thakore. She is very prompt with replying message through my uchealth but still hope sometime communication would be better
