During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr and staff were very individualized in their treatment. Upfront and honest candor and always made us feel welcome and cared for even at difficult times. Never over optimistic but willing to accept a challenge and work with us. Dr really looked at our history and health to explain our options but left the final decisions up to us.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Treated each patient like an individual. Very compassionate. Efficient with their time and the doctor.
How was your experience with Joseph Gianfortoni?
Dr G is a straight shooter and honest. He has the patients best interest at heart and was genuinely as upset at each failed cycle as we were. Yet his honestly gave us what we needed to make the hard decisions rather than waste our money. He also worked directly with the clinic on our behalf.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Gianfortoni?
He has a dry sense of humor. If you don't like honestly and someone who is upfront about your chances, risk factors, or overall health see someone else.
Describe the protocols Joseph Gianfortoni used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Steroid added to cycle for transfers to reduce inflammation and aid implantation. We had issues with transfers so we did several mock ones and used Valium.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joseph Gianfortoni.
Very reasonable. Practice was cost conscious.
