Dr. Sherman J. Silber's Ratings
Waited an hour and received no update from the staff about when the doctor would see us. After we asked to cancel the appointment, they were suddenly ready to send us back but made another patient wait who actually had an appointment before ours. The consultation was brief and the doctor only discussed IVF. When we asked about other options he told us there were none and on his notes he said he thought it was stupid to consider anything other than an IVF. He took a personal phone call in the middle of our meeting. When the first tape cassette didn't work in his recorder he scolded a member of his staff.
This place is just a IVF factory. They don't seem to care about the patients.
Needless to say we won't be seeing him again.
I found Dr. Silber online while searching about IVF. I had seen another doctor about this, and wasn't happy with her so I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Silber. This was the best decision we could have ever made. We had a bunch of testing done by the other doctors that had we went to Dr. Silber we would have saved a ton of money. We did not have a very successful egg retrieval with only 2 eggs, and decided to do the transfer and hope for the best. We got pregnant on the first try, and I am now in my third trimester. I can't thank him, and his team enough for all the help as we struggled through this aweful time.
I do not like him in the first time I met him. He seems to push you doing ivf immediately. I went through his website so I had chosen him for my first mini ivf cycle. And when it failed, he let his staff answer me that he did not no why. When I was doing ivf with him, I got replying emails during the day. But when the transfer failed, I sent emails to ask them, I had to wait for two days to have their email replying. Moreover, I had to pay around 12000 USD for my ivf cycle. But when doing ivf with him, the medications that he asked me to take made me have polyps and fibroids, and I had to pay extra money to remove these. Be careful with this doctor if u do not want to waster your time and money....do not let his website fool u......
I was warned that he was a great doctor,but had a horrible bedside manner. After our first ultrasound he told us that my antra follicle count was 1/2 of what my other doctor had projected and that I had the fertility of a 42 year old(I'm 35).He said that we would need a special procedure called Mini IVF and that the entire process would take a year and over $30,000. He was adamant that we needed to be aggressive.After numerous blood tests and ultrasounds,I had never been told of any problem with me. I have normal cycles & I ovulate every month.After days of tears I decided to get a second opinion.I explained our story to the new doctor. He stopped me & said that I was not the first one to tell him this story. A week later he gave me an internal ultrasound and we also did a mock transfer. He confirmed that my antra follicle was accurate and he believed that traditional IVF will work for us.I'm not sure why the discrepancy was there, but my gut is telling me that I was being duped.
You will ONLY see this doctor at the 1st appointment then you will NEVER be able to talk to him directly! They were super nice and positive while trying to get our money and then it was negative after negative... This was $30,000 that we had saved to do this and we got NOTHING out of it and now we can't afford to do it again. DO YOUR RESEARCH cause we didn't and now after a failed DONOR cycle (None of the 11 mature eggs fertilized. Ya, not sure how that happens), $30,000 lost and not even a phone call from the clinic since, we now know that there are clinics out there that offer 80%-100% guarantee that if you don't have a live birth, your money is completely refunded! Don't just throw away your money with this clinic!
For one, you will ONLY see Dr. Silber at the consultation. After that, you will NEVER hear from him nor see him. As far as the staff, they are much less than desirable. Lastly, after 30K, and a failed cycle, you'd think they would atleast call you... Save your money and go somewhere else.
Dr. Silber made our dream of becoming parents a reality. There is no greater gift. We hold him and his staff in the highest possible regard. When our twin children turned 3, we returned to Dr. Silber's office so he could meet them and he graciously made time for us. We have shared his book with several friends that are suffering the road of infertility. In our opinion, Dr. Silber is the BEST of the BEST in his field.
During a very difficult time in my life and the desire to began a family Dr. Silber was my light at the end of the tunnel. I like to complete exam of my fertility to let me know exactly where I stood. I know these answers aren't always what we want to hear but I was ready for someone to give me concrete answers about what my options where and he did exactly that. His office staff was also very helpful throughout the whole process. I recommend him highly to anyone and everyone with infertily problems. I also have a medical background myself so know a little more about what should occur and was extremely satified.
