I switched to the SOFT clinic and started treatments in January'06 and got my BFP on June 11th. I can't thank Dr Martin enough, he was great through the whole IVF cycle and managed to get my one and only embie to stick. :banana:

Honestly I think Dr. Martin needs improvement. He schedules things according to his schedule and doesn't follow very well for my liking. He likes to put everyone on standard protocols rather than seeing what works for each individual. My egg retrival was terrible with him-no eggs to work with, leaving me thinking it was a problem with myself, change to another doctor who watched me very closely and adjusted my protocols accordingly and sucess with 9 blasts frozen for a sibling project.

His staff was nice enough, and the doctor himself was also pleasent, but not the same as what I've seen with other doctors. Thus far none of my friends have been pregnant through his clinic.

I am currently a patient at the SOFT clinic and have been for some time. I have experiences with other clinics and found that Dr.Martin, and his staff run a very professional clinic. My first Ivf attempt was very rocky, due to the medications not doing what they were suppose to. Dr.Martin perscribed a new "cocktail", as he called it, for me. The second attempt went text book perfect, except for the results. Egg retrieval was good and fertiliztion through ICSI went well....Just no pregnancy....Dr.Martin is great with follow-up reviews with his patients and will answer any questions that you may have. If you go to SOFT, you will get to know Pat very quickly. She is excellent!! Very positive yet realistic at the same time. She always makes time for you if you have questions or concerns. I have never felt rushed out of an appointment at this clinic. If you call the clinic, often you get an answering machine due to the high volume of calls they recieve, but I have found when I leave a message with my questions/concerns my call is returned within a short period of time.
I have been with SOFT, for quite a period of time and have seen many happy faces leaving the office. I also have meet many women that are there to try for another IVF baby, as Dr.Martin was successful in accomplishing a baby for them before.
I am now in the process of my 3rd IVF attempt. I will be starting Menopur injections on Saturday, and am keeping my fingers crossed that this will be the lucky one! I am very happy with my clinic and would not consider going any where else. I feel comfortable and welcome there.
