Dr. David did not even show up for my appointment, after spending hours driving to the city for an apt made months ago I was told by the receptionist that he was not in the office. He also does not accept any insurance, just the initial consultation is $800, which I was even willing to pay with the expectation, but clearly he nor his staff care about their patients, which is a shame considering most are desperate for a family and willing to do anything.
First let me start by saying my twins will be 24 this summer and not a birthday goes by with out me thinking about the dr and his staff. He basically held my hand during the 8 months I was seeing him. After 8 months he recommended we look into Ivf and he suggested some dr. I never needed to call those Ivf doctors since I found out I was pregnant the next week THANK YOU dr David for my twins
After my experience there I am shocked there isn't an extensive list of complaints from this past year - I really wonder how they are able to avoid or block that from happening. I wish I had been more discerning when looking at reviews of this practice before signing up - because the fact that there are only a few posted (good and bad) after so many years of him being in practice should have been a warning sign. At some point in time this doctor might have been amazing, but now it's literally a joke. You have your 800$ consultation via Skype and then you never see or hear from him again. (Apparently now he's back in the clinic) but my experience was that after one month of being a patient I was informed via email that he was closing his doors 27 days later to be a "consultant" to the world. I kid you not. I got this email one day after having my first IUI - not exactly a non stressful thing to receive. Immediately i had to get back into action to see what new doctor I'd have to transfer to and considering i'd just started with this clinic I felt beyond deceived. I spent the next 20 plus days in stress and using more precious time trying to figure out where to go and writing emails to the clinic trying to get clarity. (BTW his staff also had no idea what was going on). With the deadline of the clinic closing near and patients clearly demanding refunds and showing their displeasure with the situation - I then received a second email saying after the outcry of his patients became too loud to ignore - he was "back from his world book tour"( seriously?) and that he would now be the only person at the practice and his whole staff would be let go except for the receptionist. Within that 27 day countdown the nurse had personally given me her word to stick with me until I finished my 2nd iui so that I wouldn't lose at least that months try which I appreciated ...but to say it was within a calm and ideal environment of course was impossible for her to provide. For anyone that has been on a fertility journey the last thing you want to stress you out - is the FERTILITY CLINIC ITSELF which pretty much sums up my entire experience there. Also important to note is that following my second IUI I wound up in the ER (twice within one week) in excruciating pain and unable to physically move for over a month as a result of hyper-ovarian stimulation for using Clomid for the first time. Without going into the details of that - I can say I never received any follow-up from the doctor or clinic minus the actual days I called to report I was in the ER. In fact the only way they knew what was going on or how I was - was solely dependent on me contacting them. Great care or concern? I think not. It's scary actually to think to have put my body and trust in their care as well as a lot of my money I could have put to someone that actually cared. The ethics at this clinic are questionable both in medical practice as well as financially. Just as one example .... I was going to be billed to speak to the doctor after I demanded a phone call from him following his first email saying he was hitting the road! Only after expressing anger about the fact I believed he owed his patients the courtesy of a phone call after ditching us - did the front desk manager say she could "waive" the fee - which i think is normally around $250 dollars for 15 minutes to talk to him . As was her usual manner, she made it seem like she was doing me a big favor! REALLY?!!! I could go on and on and I wish I could put my email on here to let any woman considering going here access to ask me any question because that's how strongly i feel about this place being an absolute joke and disaster. It's amazing what someone wanting a baby is willing to accept dealing with - and it's horrible how easily and with little conscious this practice preys on those that are feeling desperate. I think at one point this was a very good place but today - no way - I say in the strongest terms possible - do not give this place even one penny and even more importantly any precious time.
