Can anyone give any advice on Dr. Pyselman? Is she good? Is her sucessfule rate high? Does she really care about her patients? We had really bad experience with our old doctor. We are at late 30's and frustrated and can't afford another bad experience.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!

As well. I find her receptionist accomodating and friendly as well.
All the best!

I have heard that she gets less follicles from retrievals but gets more mature eggs, which is what's important. I don't know if that impacts her success rates compared to anyone else at all. I never made it as far as that with her so I can't really comment on that personally but I was talking to someone in line for monitoring one morning who said she'd done her retrieval and it was a good experience for her (well, as good as that can be, I guess ).
There are a few things I didn't like: She's always late, but I gather that's pretty normal for any doctor. I went for a consult to start IVF and she suddenly started talking about needing to go on Metformin to address my "PCOS tendencies", which was the first I'd heard of anything like that in regards to me. I asked what that meant and she was kind of vague (something about long cycles, which is not really true, they were only 30 days usually) and I was left feeling like either my test results hadn't come back as okay as she originally said, or that I was missing something. I was also really emotional at that appointment because she said I'd have to go on the Pill (standard with IVF) and I had such terrible depression when I went off it originally that I was really scared of that idea so I may not have asked the right questions because I was busy trying not to cry or I might have taken things the wrong way. I wonder now if she was just suggesting it to cover all the bases and eliminate a potential problem just in case.

We had numerous IUI without success and had first IVF last year and didn't suceed as well. Now we are seeking for second opinion and hoping for the best.
Good luck to all of us!
