Ratings for Dr. Frederick W. Larsen
I have seen four different fertility specialists and this is by far the worst experience I have ever had at a doctor's office. They told me I should have general health screenings done and promised my insurance provided coverage when, in fact, it did not and I ended up with a $1500 bill to find out neither of me or my husband had HIV or Hepatitis C, amongst many other ridiculous unnecessary tests. I have already paid thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars on fertility and am very upset that they tricked me into this test. I most definitely would have opted out. In addition, there were other surprise expenses not included in their fertility package and every time I went in there to even discuss test results (which they would not discuss over the phone) it was an additional expense not included in the package. I counted on paying cash for my treatments but counted on at least having a choice what I spend my money on. They are extremely dishonest and I will never go back. I am extremely happy with my new fertility clinic who, while they are expensive, at least they lay out your costs honestly and are not too lazy to check your benefits before making promises. Infertility is so financially and emotionally taxing, the least I expect from my specialist's office is that they are considerate and honest instead of trying to capitalize on your misfortune.
Dr. Larsen is one of the best doctors I have ever met - in any discipline! He is patient, extremely knowledgeable, and can explain his field in terms simple enough for laymen to understand. He did not just recommend IVF to me. He systematically did several diagnostic tests to figure out what caused my infertility. As it turned out, I was impeded by my advanced maternal age as well as blocked tubes. He took care of the blocked tubes and I became pregnant despite my advanced age (I was in my early 40's). I too, wish he could have delivered my babies, but it's not what they do in this office. I feel very blessed and am very thankful I found him.
Probably a good dr if you want IVF treatment without finding out what's causing your infertility. Friendly doctor and staff but did not "think outside the box". I wanted someone who could help with the infertility diagnosis besides age. And yes there are doctors like that out it here - one who treats your diagnosis and not just recommend the standard IVF.
Dr Larsen is a man of high integrity. We had an unsuccessful attempt at IVF with a different doctor and went in for a consultation with him. We were frustrated and angry with our last experience, and Dr Larsen patiently and professionally went through and educated us on things the previous doctor did not. Dr. Larsen works with Dr. Zoneraich, and as it turns out, our appointments fell mostly with Dr. Zoneraich, but the few that we had with Dr. Larsen, he was always patient and accessible to questions. This is one man that I would put my trust in.
I would recommend Dr. Larsen to anyone! He is the best! I went to a local "chain" doctor for a year, and they thought I had too many questions and were not helpful whatsoever. That's when I decided to see Dr. Larsen. After trying to get pregnant for years, I am now pregnant, and it could not have been done without him. He explains things to you very well, and will explain things to you that you haven't even thought to ask about. I wish he could deliver my baby, but unfortunately, I have to see a regular obgyn now :(
