They tried to charge for for traditional egg fertilization as well as for ICSI and I caught this. I asked if we could continue to try to get pregnant in our own during estrogen priming and was told yes, but later learned the Cetrotide I was taking could end a pregnancy if one had started (I would have abstained knowing this). They called me twice to tell me my IVF was unsuccessful and did not realize they had already called. I did not receive a report on day 3 from the embryologist as expected and went to transfer with no information. Again, this was all the Bethesda Fertility Clinic, not Dr. Thie's private practice. The nurses I rated so favorably were from her private practice, where I usually go. I would not Rae the Bethesda Fertility Center's nurses so highly.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The entire staff knows my name (incidentally, I go to Dr. Thie's private practice, she only does IVF retrieval and transfer at the Bethesda Fertility Center, and I would answer closer to a number for them). Dr. Thie listens to my questions, has an open mind, and spends time with me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Their empathy and experience. The head nurse, Cindy, is exceptional.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call with results
How was your experience with Jennifer Thie?
I have a tremendous amount of respect for Dr. Thie. I am confident that she wants the best for us. Before my first egg retrieval, she actually called my cell phone the night before to leave a message of encouragement in light of my estradiol results and to let me know that she was thinking of me. This is one case where bedside manner is really important given the emotional strain of infertility. That said, as a DOR patient, I am not always sure she is up on the latest treatment or protocol options.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Thie?
Be prepared to wait and call the clinic to see if they are on time or not. If you don't want to wait to see your doctor, she is the wrong one. However, you are waiting because she gives each patient the time needed and will do the same with you.

[Bethesda Fertility Center is a] small clinic north of Cincinnati. It has 3 doctors now but Dr. Hoffman was the primary doctor when I was there. I saw Dr. Renyolds once or twice and liked her but she was learning....All the nurses there were wonderful!

Describe your experience with Bethesda Fertility Center.
small clinic north of Cincinnati. It has 3 doctors now but Dr. Hoffman was the primary doctor when I was there. I saw Dr. Renyolds once or twice and liked her but she was learning.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The nurses were great, he was very blunt and does not have good bed side manner when telling women bad news.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
All the nurses there were wonderful!
How was your experience with Glen Hofmann?
His strength is his experience. He has seen a lot of cases and makes very accurate predictions. His weakness is his bedside manner. He was too quick to tell me that I needed to use a gestational carrier vs. adjusting his approach.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Glen Hofmann?
Have thick skin. I do, and his delivery still brought me to tears more than once.
Describe the protocols Glen Hofmann used in your cycles and their degree of success.
2 antagonist cycles -BC for 3ish weeks -overlapping with lupron for 2-3 weeks -8 days of Gonal F and Menopur -Novarel -Transfer on day 6

The clinic [Bethesda Fertility Center] is easy to get in touch with. It is easy to make appointments and to fill out paperwork before your visit...I have only had experience with two nurses. Both were friendly and easy to engage with. They answered any questions I had and were honest when I needed to speak with a doctor... staff was also friendly and welcoming. I got phone calls back immediately and never felt like they didnt care about my journey.

Describe your experience with Bethesda Fertility Center.
The clinic is easy to get in touch with. It is easy to make appointments and to fill out paperwork before your visit. I found other options in my city were a lot harder to get in touch with.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt like talking to Dr. Reynolds was like talking with a friend. She was honest, funny and supportive. She answered any question I had or still do have. My staff was also friendly and welcoming. I got phone calls back immediately and never felt like they didnt care about my journey.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I have only had experience with two nurses. Both were friendly and easy to engage with. They answered any questions I had and were honest when I needed to speak with a doctor.
How was your experience with Kasey Reynolds?
Dr. Reynolds, in my experience, has no weaknesses at this point in time. She is a great listener, never makes you feel rushed, answers questions you might think are silly or dumb. She is happy to answer phone calls and emails.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kasey Reynolds?
Make sure you create a list of questions no matter how you feel about them. You might think they are silly or dumb but she wont and she will answer any of them.
