How was your experience with Bert Scoccia?
Dr. Scoccia tried many things to determine the causes of my infertility. He explored many options. I only wish he weren't overbooked the whole time I was seeking treatments. The clinic was going through a transition which made communication more difficult.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bert Scoccia?
I would demand more communication from him.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The clinic was always so busy and I had to keep reminding Dr. Scoccia of my history. It was impossible to get a hold of the doctor whenever I called.
Describe the protocols Bert Scoccia used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Dr. Scoccia wasn't conservative with the medications and always proposed experimental drugs / supplements which I appreciated. He would adjust medications if I wasn't responding well in the first day or two of the cycle. He was careful to monitor the progress and adjust as needed.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff only responded once a day which was frustrating. I wish they'd take emails to answer questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bert Scoccia.
I was completely covered by HMO insurance so I paid very little out of pocket for procedures and meds.

How was your experience with Bert Scoccia?
The clinic/office is very busy and not fancy. I was skeptical at first. However, I felt that Dr. Scoccia and his nurse were attentive and cared about me as a person.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bert Scoccia?
Be prepared for the experience of waiting in a reception area with regular OB patients who are pregnant (which can be hard as a fertility patient.) Expect to have to wait for a while at appointments, but also know that Dr. Scoccia and his nurse are very attentive and know what they are doing.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
This was a busy clinic with regular OB patients as well as infertility patients, but I felt that Dr. Scoccia and his nurse cared about me individually and felt confident that we could conceive and have a normal pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She gave me her email address and responded to all emails very promptly. She seemed to understand how important it was to have a good connection with her.
