Strongly recommended.

Dr. Gago is extremely knowledgeable and has excellent bedside manner. She takes the time to go over every option along with chances and ramifications. My wife and I felt very comfortable going to her throughout the process.

One Star

This is a fertility nightmare. You will never reach a human when calling. She pushes you to voicemail and you are lucky for a nurse to call you back within 48 hours. When you are paying $25,000 for a treatment you deserve better. Go to any other provider in the area and you will probably receive better care.

There is a reason there are bad reviews.

I wish I had read the reviews about this clinic before I went. Although Dr. Gago does seem nice, positive, and knowledgeable, my experience there was terrible. Every visit included a 1.5-2.5-hour wait. Staff did not know who I was or why I was there. The entire time I felt like I didn't know what was going on or what I was supposed to be doing. No one answers their office phone during business hours and you have to leave messages and wait for someone to call you back. When I nicely expressed frustration about this, one of the nurses insinuated I might be happier if I went elsewhere. It was then that I read the reviews....and all of the negative reviews reflect almost this exact experience. One reviewer suggested we go to the Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center (MCFC), so I checked them out (in Dearborn). That reviewer was SO right. The treat you like a rock star at the MCFC, and never once did I have more than a two MINUTE wait. Everyone knew who I was and why I was there. They went above and beyond to save me every penny they could on medications. I always knew what I was doing. They always answered the phone. Pictures of thousands of babies they helped conceive line their walls. And I am now expecting a baby too thanks to them. Go there.

Lack of Organization

Dr. Gago is a very pleasant and knowledgable person. We felt comfortable working with her. Support staff, however, were extremely ineffcient-bordering on incompetent. We called to schedule an appointment specifically to review our old file--this was clearly stated prior to the appointment. We were told the appointment would last 30 minutes. Upon arrival, we encountered a very small, cramped and croweded waiting room and learned that our old file had NOT been located in the 3 weeks since scheduling. My insurance card and driver's license were taken to make copies--and not returned to me. I was so upset and frustrated with the experience, I forgot to ask for them. We waited for over 2 hours before seeing Dr. Gago. She did her best to recall our previous treatments and to outline possible future steps. She ordered several tests--many of which were repeats of what we had done before. We opted not to repeat tests and followed through with the others. I had to call 3 times to get results as the nurse would call back not leave a message (as requested). When we asked questions about what came next, the response was, "You need to complete the rest of the ordered tests before you can meet with Dr. Gago again." We tried to explain that we felt that was unnecessary and asked for further explanation about the purpose of the repeat tests--again, the nurse emphasized that they had to be done before we could move forward. At this point, we decided to seek a second opinion. I later received an EOB from an insurance carrier we no longer have. Our new insurance had been taken at the first appointment--they did not bill this insurance and when I called to follow up on this--they could not find the information. Addressing infertility is emotional and stressful enough without having to address poor professionalism. Dr. Gago may be an excellent doctor--we will never know this first-hand as we can't get past the incompetence of the office. Her support staff fail to facilitate the process and add to the stress of a difficult situation.
