How was your experience with Douglas Austin?
He is very attentive and interested in my goals to grow a family. He is also very personable and easy to talk to about any issues or concerns we may have during our journey. Many questions arise through all the meds and procedures, he always answers honestly and has never been misleading.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Douglas Austin?
Ask as many questions as possible! There are so many routes to take once you've made it to a fertility specialist, it can be confusing and expensive. Don't be shy to bring up cost!
Describe the protocols Douglas Austin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
When I first came to his office I did some blood tests and then continued clomid/famara and then did the 3 IUI's. He didn't think it would be smart to waste more money to
Continue the IUI's so we began talking about IVF which I followed through with. I did 3 rounds, 2 embryos each round. One fresh and the other two frozen. I have now ran out of frozen eggs so I have now decided to to another egg retrieval and will do PGS.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
I have no complaints. Easy to schedule appointments for before I started work and a quick in and out.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Douglas Austin.
With IVF I know I had to put $5,000 down and the the rest I could do a payment plan with. The IVF drugs I also had to pay for out of pocket. He nurse coordinator did point me towards another patient that was reliable that was getting rid of left over meds to get them for a cheaper rate.
