Hi Moolani,
Congratulations on your adoption and natural baby to be born soon!

Regarding the poll for Mt. Sinai, I'm loathe to 'tick off' boxes b/c it all depends.

Atmosphere: Good, if seeing pregnant women and posters of babies doesn't upset you.
Cleanliness: I don't know about spotless, but it seems clean enough.
Knowledge: The nurses and doctors appear to be quite knowledgeable.
Rapport/Empathy: So far everyone I have dealt with seems to be fairly empathetic.
Friendliness: The reception was initially a bit snippy, but have now come around.
The payment desk staff are often aloof.
Accessability: Public transit right at the door. Limited parking, but can usually find a spot.
Wheelchair accessible.
Communication: The basics are communicated, but you have to ask questions for a more thorough understanding.
For instance, the nurse informs you of the bloodwork results, but does not put it into context other than saying "it's fine".
When questioned, they provide the normal ranges so you have more reassurance.
The IVF antagonist protocol was assigned to me, without an explanation of why this particular protocol was chosen for me.
Counseling: I'm aware that there is a Social Worker on staff, but that's as far as it's gone.
Timeliness: The bloodwork staff are often backed up and we're waiting a while. I always take the last appointment -- for selfish reasons b/c I am not a morning person, and for altruistic reasons b/c many women are working while going through this and the sooner they get in, the faster they can leave. There is a wait for the ultrasounds as well, but the actual procedure is pretty quick. There is tissue available, but I've often had to make a point of drawing the curtain to gain some privacy and use the tissue -- they seem to forget the fact that ultrasounds are a bit messy.
Literature: Again, the basics are communicated.
There are a limited amount of articles, magazines and other literature available. Most of it ends up posted on the outside of the cubicles of the RE's administrative assistants. In the waiting area for the bloodwork, there are monitors and keyboards with internet access, but limited literature there and in the waiting room for the u/s. I took a copy of the Canadian Magazine of Reproductive Health / Creating Families Summer 2008 edition home, but felt bad b/c it was likely the only copy! It featured an article on the emotional impact of recurrent miscarriage, which interested me.

Overall, I think it is a good clinic ~ but no one has told me what the stats are, so I remain in the dark as to what their success rate is.

~A

p.s. the very first IUI week of b/w and ultrasounds I was shocked when it was a male doctor...the first couple of days were very uncomfortable...he was very nice and in fact gentle, which helped a lot and I eventually got over it -- but as someone who is rather private and shy about exposing myself it was definitely unsettling and I wasn't prepared for it! as it turns out, the doctors rotate a week at a time so I had a female doctor for the second IUI...

I really like the new clinic that Mount Sinai has set up. I like the fact that it is on it's own now, I think they have tried really hard to address the issues they had when they were over at the Ontario Power Generation Building, I personally feel a lot more comfortable in the new clinic!

I have done 3 IUI cycles and Mount Sinai, and just starting IVF. I previously had a sono and polyp removal there too, Dr Greenblatt is my doctor and she is very nice although you dont see her much and are under the care of the nurses. Some of the nurses are great, theres one I dont like as much....the IUI she did on me was uncomfortable compared to painless with another nurse, and when she is explaining things I find she is not very clear. You do feel a little rushed when going for ultrasounds but you can ask to speak to a nurse at any time. Sometimes I find they are not clear with things, for example when to have intercourse and when to abstain. If you have a question you leave a message on the voicemail and they call you back the next day...but sometimes that feels too late. But Im pretty happy with my experience so far.

I think I have to agree with most of these comments-not sure of its location previous to this but they are on dundas st w as of this post. I think their office is very nice..clean...some days there is an aweful wait and sometimes your out before your appt time even goes by. One of the reception ladies isn't very friendly..she seems to have a lot of attitude but the rest are so friendly. I hate that you don't get called back same day..sometimes you have questions that you need answered quickly. As for empathy-I truely believe most have empathy down ..but I found the 1 embrologist far from empathetic when delivering your fertilization report. I'm not the only 1 who has complained about the same person...I think they have amazing drs and the nurses seem to care...especially Rebecca. Overall I think their a great clinic...

I thought I would add in my 2 cents.

I cannot speak highly enough of the level of care I have recieved at Mt.Sinai. Every single person I have encountered has been so wonderfully warm and kind. I was lucky enough to do most of my cycle monitoring at their Vaughn location, which was super nice as I do not live in the city.

Everyone from the doctors, the fellows, the nurses have been absolutly wonderful and I am so happy to have switched to this clinic. I know it is a large clinic with tons of patients, but I have never felt like just a number. Every encounter felt personal. Highly recommend this clinic.
