Hello Juno,

I am just stumbling across this thread. Not sure if you got an answer to your question, or if you have had a chance to talk to Dr. Sher or not. A friend of mine did 2 cycles with him and has nothing but good things to say about Dr. Sher and his clinic(s). She did 2 cycles there after multiple failed cycles in Canada.

There's also a thread about him on this site: https://ivf.ca/forums...__1#entry235452

All the best to you.

hi juno
i went to dr sher in 2007 and had a fresh cycle , i went there because i knew what our problem was (polysomies) and only they were testing the embryos for that
my experience was great
they assign you a case manager who will stay connected with you entire cycle ,you can email or call her and get a fast reply
you can also book a phone consultation with dr sher when ever needed
except for one miss communication rest went well and i have a son
good luck

Hi there,
Just add my two cents, I haven't cycled with Dr. Sher however we completed a phone consult. Much like what someone else mentioned, the clinic was super organized, very good at communicating and handled all the logistics well. I was very impressed at Dr. Sher's breadth of knowledge and extensive experience in the field, however he was a bit over bearing at times...He is definitely a good business man, because he knows how to sell his services...Ultimately, it was a very valuable consult for us and that man definitley knows his stuff! If our next cycle does not work, I will be travelling to Las Vegas to cycle with Dr. Sher because of the CGH (comparative genomic hybridization) procedure they offer...

Did any of you try CGH with Dr. Sher & if you have any comments/recommendations to share about CGH it would be much appreciated.

We're consulting with Dr Sher & DH & I agreed that if we do cycle with him, we will do day 5 CGH with embryo banking. We had day 3 CGH on the last round with our current RE & had 2 lovely blasts for transfer. As usual they didn't take, so Dr S has ordered more testing (immune). We get the results on 24 May & then will decide whether or not we're going to cycle again. Did Dr S go over the difference with you between day 3 and day 5 CGH? Sounded to me like he is a proponent of day 5 since they can extract a lot more DNA without harming the embryo & get more accurate results than on day 3.
