Used Car salesman-beware

Dr. Sobel has good bedside manner. He is very nice. However, after spending or shall I say wasting 1.5 years under his care I have come to realize a few things about him. He has a big goofy smile that can make you feel at ease but his competency level is seriously lacking. I had two complete IVF failures under him. My embryos never made to transfer. MY second IVF worst then first no fertilization of 20 eggs. The first time had 10 eggs fertilized. Then he tells me that the problem is my eggs rather then admitting the problem was his protocol . He commented I may need donor eggs. Then a few weeks later he calls me all happy saying he talked it over with his staff and they created a new protocol for me. When we challenged him that his new protocol did nothing to address the egg quality issue is when we realized he is nothing but a used car salesman. He just wanted another 12000 from us. Then we went to doctor Glasser on main line. He called the protocol from the 2nd IVF a disaster and said no donor eggs needed. We immediately went into a IVF round with him. Now I am 21 weeks pregnant. Not until I dealt with a real competent doctor did u truly understand the clown show that Abington's practice is. Save your time and money stay away!

Easy to talk to and listens to your concerns

I can't speak of his success rate but I found Dr. Sobel to be very easy to talk to and really listened to what I had to say. I am very much aware of my fertility issues and had been working with a reproductive OBGYN before seeing him. He took the time to talk to me about my past experiences and was very thorough in his diagnosis. Unfortunately would health insurance won't pay for reproductive endocrinology so I've had to stop seeing him until I exhaust my options with the OBGYN, which my insurance will pay for.
