She [Dr. Nancy Durso] was fine. Just no personality, warmth or bedside manner. I liked the small clinic and specifically avoided the region's gigantic fertility machine...She doesn't talk or explain more than the minimum necessary. Be your own advocate!...At time they were a very small operation. One office woman and one medical assistant. Both those other two wow were fantastic! Kept me there rather than give a larger operation a try

Describe your experience with Partners for Fertility and IVF.
I feel like I already did this. Nothing else to say. Her clinic is now totally different than 2007 and so I couldn't help anyhow. All is diff now.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
She was far from warm or personable. Like a lot of docs. Not unusual but very much do NOT like. Especially with an area such as this.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At time they were a very small operation. One office woman and one medical assistant. Both those other two wow were fantastic! Kept me there rather than give a larger operation a try

Dr. [Durso] failed to disclose that she didn't have the ability to biopsy d5 embryos for PGS testing because she doesn't have the appropriate equipment... Only use her for IUI, not IVF.

How was your experience with Nancy Durso?
Dr Durso was very good when we were undergoing IUIs, and we did have a child. When we were ready for a second child, we needed to do IVF and chose PGS testing to get our best possible chance for a successful pregnancy. She pushed us into testing on d3 and transferring on d5 and never disclosed that she did not have the equipment to test the embryos on d5. I would not recommend her for IVF treatment based on this experience.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nancy Durso?
Only use her for IUI, not IVF.
