Describe your experience with ART Institute of Washington.
The clinic is set inside Walter Reed Military Medical Center. The clinic is easy to access if you are a military family seeking treatment from the surrounding area. We traveled from Southern VA for treatments. The clinic works closely with the pharmacy at the medical center which was convenient.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The entire team at the clinic knew me by name. I traveled from VA for many of my visits & I was always well informed & treated w respect. I highly recommend this clinic & team.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The customer service from Darshana & the nursing team was amazing. Darshana knows every patient by 1st name during the cycle period. The nurses were always available to take calls & offer advice.
How was your experience with John Csokmay?
Dr. Csokmay kept me informed every step if the way. Treated me with respect. Took time to explain what was going to happen at the current visit and future visits. Kind & compassionate. Took the time to ensure the patients felt like individuals not just a number within the cycle group.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Csokmay?
Go into treatments with an open mind & open heart. Dr. Csokmay will assist as he can and work with you in hopes of the results you want.
Describe the protocols John Csokmay used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was sent home with a slew of medications and detailed instructions. The staff kept in contact on how the medications were to be administered, dosing, & my reaction. Egg retrieval occurred then ICSI & the embryos were frozen on day 5. Our embryos underwent genetic testing for C.F. before completing frozen cycles.
Dr.Csokmay & his team kept us informed as they spoke with the genetic team (off site), we initially had to delay our cycle because our c.f. screening had to be built. Dr. Csokmay & his team did not hesitate to get us in outside of a normal cycle window for our 1st transfer.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
I was worried monitoring apoinments would be difficult & nonpersonable, this was not the case. It was appointments by 1st come 1st serve but the team got patients in quickly & efficiently.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Csokmay.
I think in total we paid out of pocket
Approx. $15,000 due to being active duty military family
