Describe your experience with UT Southwestern.
Advice would be to plan ahead on having extra medicine when doing an IVF, better to have extra. Don't schedule travel during a cycle and keep schedule open/flexible if possible. Emails thru my chart has been effective with getting questions answered
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
More specialized care, plus more monitoring and appts than previous dr.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They're organized, timely for appt, compassionate. Weaknesses-since dr is monitoring closely medications are adjusted daily. I ran out of Menpour first round of mini IVF due to no communication and planning on their end.
How was your experience with Orhan Bukulmez?
He's very thorough in explaining the process of mini IVF's, benefits and goals. He shows compassion and specialized care/approach for each patient. Even though UTSW is a teaching hospital, nice to know he does all surgeries and transfers.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Orhan Bukulmez?
Be sure to clear your schedule and be flexible from days 5-14 of your cycle for doctors appointments.
Describe the protocols Orhan Bukulmez used in your cycles and their degree of success.
He wanted to do mini IVF retrievals in order to get fewer but better quality eggs. He explained that every cycle is different with some months being better than others. Results have been positive so far with 4 frozen embryos.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Orhan Bukulmez.
My insurance, BCBS of IL has been good, with all benefits met so no major charges yet in 2017
