After my first appointment with Dr. Griffin he started testing with both my husband and I. He had my husband give a semen analysis, which came back great. He then performed an ultrasound and did blood work. He then concluded that I had pcos with an ovulated cycles. He prescribed me Provera to start my period and then had me take letrazole on cd 3-7. He was fairly confident that we would conceive within 6 months of this treatment. It has been almost 6 months and we are currently waiting to see if we conceived this cycle

[At Boston IVF-Indiana] I had a cancelled IVF cycle due to the physician's decision on a start date for meds. I had discarded embryos that I received and e-mail about, as the only means of communication. I also received conflicting information about what embryos were kept and which were discarded...IUI: Monitored cycle cost $1300. Non-monitored cost $300. Injectable cycle was around $1750, all costs don't include medication. IVF: Base cost $8500, ICSI is $1000, Freezing embryos is $1000.

Describe your experience with Boston IVF at The Women's Hospital.
The clinic is great. Pricey but great. I did not have success there and sought a 2nd opinion due to money being an issue, and multiple failed cycles. If I could afford to stay there, I would, I also would go back. I had some issues there that make me sour, but none of them had to do with nurses, coordinators or anything of the like. I had some issues with communication and feeling like everything possible was done when I was paying out of pocket.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The office staff knew my name, Dr. Griffin was able to recall details about me that weren't just about my case, and everyone was friendly while working with your schedule.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was amazing!! The phlebotomist, Jennifer, is amazing! She listens and does her best all the time. The Ultrasound Tech, Missy, was my favorite. I was never afraid to ask her anything. They had multiple nurses, and some training, all of which were great. Marcy at the front test is wonderful and always helpful and polite. The nurses who work in the surgical area, Jessica specifically, are amazing. I never had an issue with a nurse.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Strengths: He is extremely knowledgeable and positive. He has had great success. When a procedure is suggested or a next course is planned he gives you all the details. He is great at communicating things and answering all questions, he has a wonderful bedside manner and always wants you to feel comfortable. He doesn't sugarcoat information, but he is not rude about things either. He looks at all aspects of a case. When a failed cycle occurs he always meets with you and insists on making changes to either help improve your odds or just to try something different since he doesn't like to use the same things and possibly get the same results. Weaknesses: He doesn't give you all the details when things do not go according to plan. You have to be your own advocate and have done some research before hand. I had a cancelled IVF cycle because I had ovulated prematurely. In the appointment prior to starting the cycle I specifically asked about birth control so that we could be on a good schedule for both of us. He didn't listen, said I didn't need it since I had irregular cycles anyway, and we did a random start date. This mistake ended up costing me over $1,000 in having to replace meds I had already used, when the next cycle we did use birth control.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Be your own advocate and do your research before hand. Make sure you know the details and take notes.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IUIs: We did 3 failed IUIs, mostly due to low sperm count on my husband's side, with Femara. My reaction varied from 1-3 follicles each time. We triggered with HCG all three times. However, once we used Ovidrel and that saved me some money, but had the same outcome. IVF: We used an antagonist protocol. I was on 225IU of Gonal-F, 75 of Menopur, and then .25 Cetrotide when the time came. I triggered with Ovidrel. Dr. Griffin said this was his middle of the road protocol since I had responded well with Femara. I ended up with 11 eggs, 9 of which were mature. All 9 were fertilized with ICSI, we transferred 2, a grade 5BB and 3AB, neither implanted. Of the rest left 5 arrested, and 2 were discarded due to low grades, 5CC. I got an e-mail about them being discarded after it had already happened and had to call the embryologist myself to figure out what happened. I was not happy about this, although I knew they could do something like this, I was originally informed it was if they had grades of D's not C's. During my last appointment he mentioned it seemed to be more of a MFI issue, however he would change my protocol the next round and use a Lupron flare protocol. Once I got a second opinion I was informed that all the embryos weren't of the best quality but this was never mentioned to me, even during my follow up appointment.

I was blown away by his staff [at Boston IVF at The Women's Hospital] from check in to check out. I was greeted in a friendly manner and I was taken on a personal tour of the facility. I did not ask for a tour but it was graciously offered and I gladly accepted. The facility was beautiful and so were the people. One thing that stood out to me about his nursing staff was during my HSG procedure. I did not had any idea going in that it would be painful. No clue whatsoever. The nurse asked me if I viewed anything about it on YouTube and I told her that I had not reviewed anything. She said she was glad I did not because a lot of people came in afraid. That did worry me but she offered me reassurance and a hand to hold (literally). I thought I was going to break her hand and I even told her this. She told me to squeeze her hand tighter if I needed to! After the procedure they stayed a moment with me to be sure I was okay and they checked on my well bein

Describe your experience with Boston IVF at The Women's Hospital.
The facility is beautiful. I was blown away the moment I walked in the waiting room. It was by far a better environment than the fertility doctor I saw previously, not to say anything was wrong with where I went before. The staff gave me a tour of their facility and everything seemed well kept, clean and organized. The one thing in their facility that I love is a wall where they place footprints of all of their children! Every time a little one is successfully born with the help of their services the family comes in a puts a footprint in blue or pink paint along with their birth info (name, weight, length) along side the print. There are a lot of footprints on this wall which means a lot of successful pregnancies! It is awesome for patients to have that visual. Everyone at this facility treated me like a friend, not like a patient. I only wish that it was closer to my home. I felt so strong about their care and services that I made the long trip to be seen.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I remember when I first heard of Boston IVF. I was visiting my OBGYN for my yearly exam and I went to the checkout counter and there I saw a brochure. They were advertising that they now had an in-house doctor to discuss infertility and treatment options with patients! I thought how fantastic is that?! Previously my OBGYN had referred me to another practice and doctor - Dr. Kit Devine with Fertility and Endocrine Associates and now I could see a doctor only minutes from my house. So, I scheduled a consultation at my OBGYN's office in New Albany, Indiana with Dr. Daniel Griffin. His practice is actually located in Newburgh, Indiana and he has such a passion for helping families dealing with infertility that he travels to New Albany once a month to meet with families who want to have a family. That alone made me feel good about seeing him because I knew he truly cared and wanted to offer his services to more than just families local to his practice.

She told me to squeeze her hand tighter if I needed to! After the procedure they stayed a moment with me to be sure I was okay and they checked on my well being for the remainder of my visit and even followed up with me the next day. They also offered recommendations to ease my pain for that evening.
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
I was very nervous to meet with Dr. Griffin and I am not even sure entirely why ,because I had met with a fertility clinic prior to that, Fertility and Endocrine Associates. I had an idea of what to expect already but my nerves might've been due to the fact that my previous attempts at Fertility and Endocrine Associates had failed and I was worried that this would fail too. When going through difficulties with fertility it can sometimes be hard to stay optimistic. Together we reviewed my medical history and the treatment plan I followed at Fertility and Endocrine Associates. He developed the next steps for me to continue my treatment under his care and I felt confident in knowing that he had my best interest. I scheduled another appointment with him for further testing at his Newburgh location. I felt confident enough and so comfortable with him that I made the couple hour drive out to his practice for testing. I was excited to see his facility and for my journey to continue. He made me feel optimistic again.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Even if you are not local to his practice the care and expertise that is offered is worth the travel. I was blown away by the facility and by Dr. Griffin and his staff. When I was with them I felt like I was the only patient in their care and that I had their undivided attention. I would recommend to a prospective patient to ask questions and to ask them again. I thought that things had been explained to me in simple terms before but when I say that Dr.Griffin drew me a picture I mean he drew me a picture. I had some confusion about certain things and Dr.Griffin seriously took out a piece of paper and pen and drew me a picture to help illustrate what was going on with me. I never had a doctor do that before and it helped me to grasp what we were discussing and it made me feel like he truly cared about me.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had previously went through 3 rounds of medication (Chlomid, Letrozole, Femara) with a previous Doctor so Dr.Griffin did not want to waste my time and money going back to treatments that did not work. Before moving on to more advanced treatments such as IUI or IVF Dr.Griffin performed some bloodwork, an ultrasound and then he also performed a HSG. He wanted to rule out any blockages in my tubes or any issues with my ovaries before moving onto expensive treatments such as IUI or IVF. He informed me that if there was any obstructions that IUI or IVF would be unsuccessful. The treatment was incredibly painful but I felt comfortable and safe with the staff who was conducting the procedure. The procedure was explained to me step my step so there was no surprises and then end result was no blockages. I was thrilled! Immediately after we met to talk about the next steps in my treatment.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
My first cost incurred under Dr Griffin was a consultation held at my OBGYN's office. I also had some blood work and an ultrasound. Before insurance those services are roughly $500 but after insurance it was less than $100. The most costly procedure that I had under his care was an HSG test although I can't recall the cost exactly I believe it was around $500. I also do not recall if my insurance covered part of that exam since they cover some things and not others. My insurance covers testing up to the diagnosis of infertility and they cover nothing after that.

The clinic is wonderful. All around amazing and compassionate staff! The office is also always well maintained!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Griffin is a very intelligent man who has a great bedside manner and is compassionate. When we attempted a fresh transfer cycle my ovaries were still too swollen to complete the transfer. I was very emotional, and was crying and he hugged me and said he was sorry. We did have our frozen embryo transfer a month later and were excited to discover both embryos implanted and we had twin boys. Unfortunately at 22 weeks I got sick with severe preeclampsia and we lost our children. Since the loss we had 1 frozen transfer, but unfortunately the embryo did not stick. We are now scheduled for another frozen transfer later this month. Through all of this Dr. Griffin and his staff have been extremely encouraging and also sympathetic with the losses.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
All of the nurses at Dr. Griffins office are amazing! Not only do they know what they're doing, but they're so friendly and caring. We almost feel as if this clinic is family instead of a doctors office.
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Dr. Griffin has always been up front with my husband and I. Never in a harsh way, but he is not afraid to tell people things they may not want to hear. As I stated earlier, our fresh embryo transfer was not able to be completed because I was still so swollen from when I did the injections for egg retrieval. He was so understanding of my feelings when the transfer couldn't go on, and he assured us we could do a frozen transfer and explained how those have high success rates as well.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Don't miss out on meeting with him. My husband and I met with a doctor at another fertility clinic, but it didn't feel right. Another friend of mine recommended him and it felt like the right place to be!
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had to inject my body nightly with meds to make my eggs grow. (With PCOS the eggs do not grow on their own as they should). Once I had some mature eggs the egg retrieval was scheduled. We got the call a few days later saying how many embryos had been made and how many survived until day 5. We scheduled my transfer but were unable to complete it during the fresh cycle. So, all of our embryos were frozen. We went back a month later for a frozen transfer. 2 embryos were put in, and thankfully both of them implanted. At 22 weeks I lost the twins due to severe preeclampsia. We met up with Dr. Griffin when my OB said we could start trying again, and he wanted to examine my uterus again before further treatment and I had polyps that had to be removed. After the surgery, we were back on schedule to have another frozen transfer done, but with only 1 embryo this time. Everything looked good during my lining check, so we continued with the transfer. The transfer was unsuccessful and we are scheduled for another single embryo transfer in a few weeks, should everything look okay at my next lining check.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
I am sorry that I cannot remember all of the costs, but I know for a frozen cycle the cost is $3400. I believe it includes the cost of your blood work and ultrasounds that follow if the transfer is successful. (I know it includes the blood work before and after the transfer if the transfer is unsuccessful).

Missy took time out of her day to speak with me on a day that I didn't even have an appointment. I also saw Missy a few weeks before I delivered walking around the hospital and she stopped and spoke with me, not every nurse would do that or even remember who I was.
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Dr.Griffin was very good at explaining to me what needed to be done and how they were going to do them. Dr. Griffin never made me feel like I was being pressured jnto doing anything I was uncomfortable with. Anytime I had a question about anything Dr. Griffin was more than willing to listen and answer. I was a little worried about having a male doctor, but never once did I feel uncomfortable.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
I would give the advice to stay calm and know that you're in good hands.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't remember specific measurements. The only thing that surprised me was having to watch a video to learn how to give myself the shots instead of being shown.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
I don't remember specifics. It seems like the medicine was the most expensive part.

They did apologize for the mistake and took full credit for the issue and let us make payments since they did not communicate to us what they needed before hand so it wasn't so terrible.

He was very well educated and even though others would see our loss as a "chemical pregnancy" since I was only pregnant a week before it was over he still called it a miscarriage because he knew that in only a week it was already the most important thing to us.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
He was very nice. Always ready to explain anything I needed. The only thing I found off putting was he diagnosed me with unexplained infertility but I went to a OBGYN and she said it looked like I had PCOS. I'm not sure how he missed that...
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Don't be afraid to ask questions!
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did an HSG test to see if my tubes we block and see if my uterous was slanted or not but everything checked out. He did a sperm sample on my husband which showed his morphology was off but he instructed he take a multivitamin and that would take care of it. We would try the next month after they were in his system. The next month came and he put me on Clomid. And he had me come in during my fertile window and drew blood to see when I would ovulate since I don't really get accurate results from the at home tests. When it was time we did an IUI. I ended up getting pregnant but I lost it about a week later he said we could try again but it was too expensive for me to try again.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
The testing was all covered by my insurance so I do not remember that completely. However I do believe with blood work testing to see when I would ovulate plus the IUI we paid about $2500

When you start your journey with Boston IVF, you become part of this family. When you are told or realize that you need to seek the help of a fertility clinic, you feel defeated or like you have hit rock bottom. Dr. Griffin and his staff will give you the best possible treatment options while bringing you up from that low point in your life. There is most certainly an emotional aspect to dealing with fertility and it's really great to know that there is a doctor that understands that and whose staff will help you sort through your feelings.

I feel like Dr. Griffin cared genuinely about the failure/success of each cycle and how to improve our chances for future cycles.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I felt like the entire nursing staff was professional but also emotionally invested in our treatments. Made us feel more like a friend or family rather than patients.
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Dr. Griffin was very professional and easy to talk to about our questions and concerns. Fertility treatments take so much away from you but Dr. Griffin let you feel like you still had some dignity and could still Make you laugh even during the most sensitive of procedures.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
He is full of information and even if you think your question is ridiculous, never be afraid to ask anything. He will make sure that you completely understand everything before you leave his office.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
There were some mornings that I needed to be at work at 8am and I was able to be seen before normal clinic hours so I could still get to work on time. I was also able to get appointments set a little later in the morning so I could go during my lunch break.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
We had 3 back to back IUIs without insurance and paid out of pocket prior to first ultrasound of the cycle. We were fortunate to get fertility insurance prior to IVF cycle and freeze all cycle (paid out of pocket for embryologist for genetic testing only) so prices were not bad. When we are ready for embryo transfer in the future, it will be $3400 each time (includes the transfer and all ultrasounds and bloodwork leading up to transfer).

This clinic is outstanding. Their office is friendly, organized and well coordinated.... The nurses are great. They are very friendly, always have a smile on their face when you walk in. I always feel welcome in their office.... Our first visit we were nearly 30 minutes late as we got lost (live an hour away from the doctor's office). We were so worried that we woudn't get to see Dr. Griffin, however he made the time for us. We weren't rushed at all, he took his time, and answered all of our questions and concerns.

How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Dr. Griffin is very thorough and knowledgeable. He takes his time explaining all the options and we never feel rushed while we are there. He just makes us feel comfortable. I've seen other doctors, however Dr. Griffin was the only one to identify the problem and determine a plan of action for us. Which we are extremely grateful for. Having answers was a huge relief, and knowing that there are still options available for us means everything.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Be open and honest. That is key in communicating with any doctor. What is best is that with Dr. Griffin, he values your point of view and takes it into consideration. He makes you feel like we're a team striving for one goal.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have diminished ovarian reserve, and will possibly be doing IVF if all goes well. Right now we are waiting on blood work results, and ultrasound. If those check out, we will proceed with IVF.

We did a cycle of mini IVF which was $5000.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He and his staff are very personable and greeted me by name every visit
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were very approachable and knowledgeable. They showed great compassion and sympathy when our cycles did not result in pregnancy.
How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
Dr. Griffin was extremely knowledgeable and great at explaining all procedures along with risks and potential outcomes. We felt very comfortable with his overall treatment and good bedside manner. He took time to answer all questions and give referrals when needed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Relax and trust his judgement and doesn't hesitate to voice concerns or ask questions.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did several different treatments including unmedicatied IUI since I ovulated on my own, medicated IUIs to boost chances by potentially releasing another egg, and a 'mini' IVF cycle which was recommended because we couldn't afford a traditional IVF cycle. With the mini IVF we did not do injections and only used Clomid and produced 2 eggs which both were fertilized and transferred.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dan Griffin.
Our insurance covered the IUIs but we have to pay 50% of medication with injections and those were anywhere from $300-600. We did a cycle of mini IVF which was $5000

How was your experience with Dan Griffin?
As a patirnt, I felt welcome at Dr. Griffins office, and although we didn't get the outcome we were expecting, it was not at all at the fault of the doctor. Wait times weren't long, and the doctor was even willing to schedule appointments and multiple procedures for the same day so I wouldn't have to make the 2 hour drive more than once.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dan Griffin?
Just be open and honest with Dr. Griffin, he is willing to help however he can.
Describe the protocols Dan Griffin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had bloodwork done, genetic testing, an ultrasound, and an HSG before we decided IVF would be our treatment course.
