Describe your experience with Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health.
Weakness is the office manager. She is unprofessional, unorganized, and overall insensitive to the infertility and financial aspects. She is the worst part of this clinic.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Session is amazing! Her care and personality are wonderful. I got all the answers I needed and never had to second guess her medical decisions for me. I was allowed to be an active participant in my care.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
They are the absolute best. They inform you daily with lab results and the recommendation from the doctor. They are considerate of your time. Always happy and smiling.
How was your experience with Donna Session?
Dr. Session was on point and told me what to expect and the potential outcomes. I always have the big picture, good and bad. She is also very caring and loving, and you feel that you are her priority when she is with you.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Donna Session?
Expect the truth. She is not rude but she is going to let you know what you need to hear.
Describe the protocols Donna Session used in your cycles and their degree of success.
First cycle-high doses of Gonal-F, high doses of menopur, and cetrotide.
Second cycle-more of a mini ivf cycle. Letrozole, Gonal-F 75, Menopur, and cetrotide. The thought was to do lower doses but for an extended period. This was in hope that my ovaries would respond better.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
It was convenient for my schedule.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Donna Session.
All office and doctor costs were in network. All lab costs were out of network with my plan.
