How was your experience with Charles Miller?
I have Not been with Dr. Charles Miller for very long, since last August! We have been doing a lot of investigating testing to why all my 13 failed transfers have not worked. He has been very straightforward and very helpful and I truly believe that he wants to help me achieve success and having a baby. I believe he leaves no stone unturned! And even though he is very busy with a lot of patience, I believe it is because he wants to help everyone that asks for his help!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Charles Miller?
Be your own advocate, ask lots of questions!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. miller is vey straight forward, and that’s exactly what I need after so many failed cycles. I need answers, and he is helping me find them. He is a very busy man, but I believe it is because he wants to help women achieve their goals of having a baby.
Describe the protocols Charles Miller used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Done so far. I’m in the process of backing starting Nother retrieval cycle that I will have about a week! My protocol Consists of menupor, Folistim, lovenox steroid for auto immune, baby aspirin, and ganirelix ....My last retrieval produced 11 eggs and so far have seven day one frozen embryos.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are a bit unorganized for somebody that’s been in the field for so long, however I do believe they are trying to accommodate everyone that sees Dr. Miller.
Describe your experience with The Advanced Gynecologic Surgery Institute.
I feel it’s very important to be your own advocate! Ask a lot of questions and do a lot of research! Sometimes things can be forgotten about or phone calls may take some time to be returned! I truly believe that Dr. Miller wants the best for all his patients however the communication skills from the nurses are not the greatest! So it’s important to stay on top of everything and just believe that everything will fall into place as it should.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
In general, I did not have to wait very long especially at the Park Ridge office there was hardly any wait at all! And I feel they are very thorough with the monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Charles Miller.
BeI guess almost 45 years old, it is very important that we do PGS testing, which is extremely expensive and this will be our fourth PGS testing ...This will be our first time doing these tests with Dr Charles Miller, and they are not cheap. Also, we have spent a lot of money doing certain tests that were out of pocket, like some blood work and ERA TEST.
