How was your experience with Zvi Binor?
Dr Binor is exceptionally thorough in explaining what next steps to expect from initial work-up, to prescribed treatments. Dr Binor really takes the time to explain the physiological aspects of infertility and uses diagrams to aide in his explanations. When our IVF was unsuccessful, he was genuinely disappointed. I would have liked him to be more open about his thoughts on success given my diagnosis. When I did ask about this his response was along the lines of , "just think positive." He was the 1st doctor my husband and I went to and we were overall impressed from day one.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Zvi Binor?
The same with any physician....be your own advocate
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Binor spends a great deal of time explaining every detail including all the science behind prescribed treatment. He never appeared rushed or uninterested in getting us the desired end result
Describe the protocols Zvi Binor used in your cycles and their degree of success.
3 IUIs with clomid
3 IUIs with injectibles
My insurance required this before moving onto IVF. These were unsuccessful. It should be noted at this clinic the nurses perform the IUIs.
IVF # 1: BCP + Follistim + Ganirelix + HCG trigger. Transferred 2 embryos. Used oral progesterone and HCG boosters
This was unsuccessful
IVF#2: Similiar protocol but used combination of Follistim & Menopur for stimulation. Only 2 eggs were retrieved and embryos did not make it to transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff was wonderful. They always were available to answer questions and also gave thorough explanations for what to expect. Many times I would get the nurse directly when calling. Anytime I left a message on the nurse line, I never had to worry about getting a return call. It shuloukd be noted this clinic is not opened on the weekends at all. There were several times I would have to take an order for bloodwork to a Quest lab on a Saturday
Describe your experience with Rush-Copley Medical Group.
Smaller clinic which adds personalized touch. The staff from the front desk, nurses, ultrasound tech, and phlebotomist getotnobknow youband make you feel as comfortable as possible. It should be noted there is no real system in place to answer questions after hours. Another improvement would be a more detailed online portal
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Most often I got in right away. There were only a couple of times where I had to wait greater than 15 minutes
