Seen Dr. Yuzpe today and I never want to see him again , He is very insensitive to what you are going through . I am 33 yrs. old and after a lot of tests knew I had a lot of issues , I was hoping he could give me some answers on were I could go from here . I was told from my Gynecologist that it was for IVF counselling but left feeling worse not better and almost want to give up altogether ,He hadn't any of my results or pervious history on me , so I was glad I had brought the paperwork with me . He told me I need my left tube removed , while bullet pointing all things going against me conceiving , when I corrected him and said its my right tube , he said "Whatever" . Then during my consultation he took a call from his bank which is quite rude . I am sure he probably has helped a lot of couples conceive but I think I go somewhere else ,after all IVF is not cheap you should be treated better . Thankfully I knew I had a lot of problems beforehand as his manner in telling you was very insensitive and id feel awful for another girl to go through that .He seems like he doesn't really care anymore and even though he deals with these issues everyday he needs to remember, we as patients don't and need some understanding . I would also like to add this is my first Doctors complaint but felt I had to say something .
Lacks empathy. Very business like. Wants to tell you facts and figures and sign you up. The clinic as a whole was completely disorganized. Lab results and treatment plans lost. Nurses would would me and ask for copies of mine because they couldn't find theirs?! Depending on the day and the nurse you'd get different directions regarding treatment. When we got a chance to talk to Dr. Yuzpe on the phone to express these concerns he got defensive, quoted stats about the Clinics reputation, made excuses and dismissed our concerns. When I was able to refocus him to discuss ways in which to rebuild trust and move forward we came up with needing to meet more often. I called the next day to make an apt. they told he was booked up for three months. This was right in the middle of our IVF cycle!!! Note that he doesn't actually do any of your procedures unless it's a day he's on call. Nothing scheduled. So unless you have appointments with him you'll never see him. His nurses answer your questions but I suspect they don't communicate well with him or each other because their responses are inconsistent. Dr. Hitkari did most of our procedures and is a very caring and compassionate professional. Ask for him if your going to use this clinic.
Absolutely horrible doctor. With a cold face and no emotions he told me I will never conceive naturally, I am not a good candidate for IVF and should buy a donor egg, as this is the only option I have left. I was 31 years old and when asked him about some other options, he said there are no other options. When I broke into tears and nearly fell from the chair, my husband was comforting me- this "doctor" just handed me a box of kleenex without a single blink of an eye. This person is a moneymaker, he doesnt care about anything, as long as he makes money. I will never go there again.
I saw Dr. Yuspe for a year with 6 failed IUIs. I asked to meet after the 3rd failed attempt and he told me not to worry, they'd tell me when to worry. After the filed 6th attempt I saw him again and he couldn't even get my details correct. He kept getting my age wrong, denied statistics he had previously given me and didn't know how many IUIs I had done. He never offered any interventions or attempts to investigate why I'm not getting pregnant, just wanted to go to IVF. His demeanour is that of a used car salesman. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I left his office in tears he told me that he wished I had gotten pregnant, but then he wouldn't be making a living! I decided to go for a second opinion and realized there were other things that could have been done sooner. The other doctor still recommended IVF, but treated me as a person. I suggest you find a compassionate doctor who will treat you like a human and not a bank machine.
This doctor has absolutely no people skills AT ALL. He shoots you down in the first 5 minutes of your appointment. He only cares about showing you statistics and how unlikely it is that you will get pregnant. For a sensitive subject like fertility I would have expected a compassionate doctor who cares about your concerns- but what I got was a "my way or the highway" attitude and he told me that if I don't have kids in a few years, maybe then I'll listen to him. Then he left the office.
Dr. Yuzpe was the first Dr we saw at Genesis Clinic in the late 1990's. At first impression, I had a hard time getting past all the gold he was dripping in. It comes across very arrogant to someone who is about to unload their bank account in hopes to make a family. Our first cycle worked but we lost our child due to pre-term labour and were never again successful in our attempts. We felt the clinic pushed you through the cycles but made sure they caught you at the door to get any payments that were due. BTW, we too were told we would have to do ICSI every cycle too. Some of the smaller eggs that did not look good enough to manually fertilize managed to fertilize on their own without ICSI intervention. Makes you wonder...
His "ethic" concerns are more important for him than people's life. We had had no success with other fertility clinics before coming do Dr.A.Yuzpe. We hoped he would have offered something different. At that time it was pretty much clear that my body could not carry a pregnancy. Dr.Yuzpe was very knowledgeable and convincing and convinced us to go for one more IVF. I ended up with ectopic, loosing one tube and a lot of blood. Hell of a doctor ! Then I found another doctor who suggested I use a surrogate. It was the only choice but now I have a beautiful baby. If I continued working with Dr.Yuzpe I would have never had a baby. Not sure I would still be alive. Stay away from Dr.Yuzpe as far as you can !!!!
I'm surprised at any positive comments on Dr.Yuzpe - it might even be from his friends/family/himself! Our experience with this so called doctor has been terrible fom the get-go. Yet, we thought,let's let him do the treatment, start the IVF and maybe he's then good to us - what were we thinking!. He's not polite with patients, inconsiderate of their feelings and time and doesn't care for anyhthing other than making money!. My IVF with this doc failed miserably - why am I not surprised. He had suggested IVF soon after my first IUI failed. Didn't give me any options such as supoer-ovulation, or, injectibles, or anything else. IVF orientation was a lot of information about the process, but not the treatment. i.e. nothing about what & when to expect, or even that how cycles could fail in the middle of the process. We were not prepared for negative outcomes. Dr. Y never answered any questions without making us feel stupid asking the ques. I think he's purely evil. Don't go to him at all!!
