Infertility pioneers, 7/11/2015

I cannot sing Dr. Mitchell-Leefís praises loudly enough. She is quite simply a pioneer in this field, and her reputation among physicians is one of being a renowned expert. That she certainly is.... During my time as her patient, she diagnosed and/or brought new light to multiple issues that impacted our fertility, including endometriosis, autoimmune disease, and a genetic blood-clotting disorder. She thoughtfully, carefully, and wisely treated each one, including performing surgery, using cutting-edge medication treatments, and treating each cycle with precision and full attention. Throughout our journey, she was a combination of direct, honest, curious, hopeful, and patient. No matter what obstacle my body presented, she developed new plans and new approaches. I have no doubt that it is because of her care and the true dedication and top-notch training of her staff that we achieved two successful pregnancies and now have two healthy, happy children. Not a day passes that we donít feel true gratitude for Dr. Mitchell-Leef and RBA. We continue to keep in touch with our team there and love sharing updates and photos as our children grow. I never hesitate to refer friends to Dr. Mitchell-Leef and have, numerous times, recommended that women get second opinions with

Run away...better providers out there, 6/15/2015

I agree with the other reviewers that this place is just profit driven and what drpdp96 said about Dr. Shapiro. You have to go through his nurse for everything and if you want to ask a question... about your care, you have to schedule a consult (which equals more money for them). They don't seem concerned about you as a patient and all they care about is getting your deposit and your money. When Dr. Shapiro canceled my cycle, I never received a phone call from him...I asked about changing protocols and was told that I needed to schedule a consult. Really?? For such bad news, the doctor can't even find 5 minutes out of his day to call his patient? The financial office is incompetent and can't seem to do anything right except ask for money. Go to another clinic where the doctors actually care about you and will call you with bad news...and where you can actually email with the doctor to coordinate your care without having to schedule a consult!

Horrible Experience!!

I can't speak for the entire practice, I can only speak for one doctor in particular, and that's Dr. Dorothy Mitchell-Leef. If you want to doctor that takes the time to really talk to you about your specific situation, she's not your doctor! She hands everything off to her staff, and they haven't a clue! The staff was cold an couldn't seem to care less! Anyone that's enduring fertility issues, knows that's it's very expensive, my advise is that you go somewhere that you will get the customized care that you deserve. I went to another practice, after two disappointing failed cycles with this place and the first cycle with GRS, that was actually customized to my specific needs, worked, and I'm almost 12 weeks! RBA was a waste of time and resources, but it's okay, it all worked in he end...with another practice!!!

Only Place To Go!

I interviewed a few doctors to take care of my infertility..there is no other place that stands up to RBA! They have been treating me for 4 years and I have an amazing little baby boy because of them! Dr. Daniel Shapiro is my angel! I trust him and his staff and they are always so attentive to your needs, fears and desires. This is one of the hardest things anyone could go through and I would never want to be anywhere else. I have sent a lot of people there I know who have been struggling for years with infertility and RBA has the special something you cannot get elsewhere. I highly recommend them!!!!!!!!

Please read so you don't have same experience

Avoid Dr. Shapiro!!! Very unprofessional, inconsiderate and absent bedside manners. Gets his nurse to give results, even if they are bad. Poor guide through the process with an arrogant attitude. Boasts his knowledge rather than helping you understand what the issue is and what is next step. This is a delicate matter and I highly recommend finding another physician. In addition, the financial services have no clue what is going on.

Love Dr. Mitchell-Leef

So blessed to have found Dorothy and her team. It was a very emotional time, but the entire team there supported me through our ourney. Thankfully, we have three beautiful RBA children to show from it. Dr. Dorothy is so smart and will figure out your issues to help you get your family. I thank God for her everyday.

Profit Driven

I got the feeling they had too many patients and not enough time for each patient. I had to call and ask for results for each test. The nurse was never available and there was always more I had to do, which proved to be absolutely useless: like mammogram, contracts, psychological evaluations, etc. My IVF was cancelled due to poor response-no discussions of medication change, other protocols, etc. They were so persistent on egg donation, which is over $25,000. Save your money. We are going to the Czech Republic http://www.reprofit.cz/en The whole procedure for an egg donation there costs $6000+ travel and all they need are basic tests. IVF will cost you around $3000 and is one of the best places in Europe.

Horrible!

The doctors are more concerned about how much money they are making! My OB no longer refers to this practice. Dr. Slayden pretty much told us our OB didn't know how to do IUI's properly... We did an HSG only for him to tell us one minute the test probably wasn't accurate and wanted to do further testing. We let him know from the get-go we were paying out of pocket for all of our services... Every time we got a price quote it was different when we paid. The staff their even sent a claim into our insurance and we received a EOB for over $8000.

Dr. Mitchell-Leef

I recently delivered my second RBA baby thanks to Dr. Dorothy Mitchell-Leef and the RBA staff. Our RBA experience staff has been very positive even when we had some complications. Dr Mitchell and staff were positive, and the treatment was customized for the best possible outcome. We are thankful to Dr. Mitchell and RBA for our family.

not sure what we've gotten ourselves into

So my dh and I have just completed bloodwork, semen analysis, and fem vue test and going in for treatment options soon to talk over with our doc, dr. straub. as one mentioned before, he does seem a bit detached and seems to want to rush through conversation so quickly. dr. slayden did my fem vue test. nice guy but wasn't quite sure if he was struggling with procedure or not.finally while performing the test, I guess he gives up and says, "well one of your tubes is open, which usually means the other is open too". I thought that was strange but I played along and said ok because I just wanted to leave. did I forget to mention the Johnson ferry office hardly ever answer the phone!!! all this money they are getting yet no one available. on my first visit they had me mixed up with another patient. ..sigh..we just want a baby. don't wanna be sucked dry of money nor do we wanna feel rushed when we have questions nor do we want to have to spend hours on end hoping someone will answer the phone nor do we want insensitive physicians. think we will wait to see how this next visit with dr. straub goes like so we can decide whether to stick with rba or move on. but I already really know the answer. honestly, I think a lot of these reviews are fake, but I can assure you, im sadly telling the truth.

Dr. Brahma

I received treatment for 2 years with Dr. Brahma. She is the newest Dr to RBA's practice - and she is wonderful. Takes time to explain things, her nurse and admin asst are great too. I had extensive assistance while there - 3 surgeries, 1 IUI, 2 IVF cycles... I also had experience with Dr. Toledo, Dr. Elsner and Dr. Witt. I am currently 10 weeks pregnant with two frozen embryos. My only negative is the long waits sometimes experienced at the main office.

Great Experience!! Loved the Lawrenceville Office!

I saw Dr. Slayden in Lawrenceville and have nothing but great things to say about this practice. I work for an OB/GYN and we refer a ton of patients to this office as well! Dr Slayden and the staff are wonderful and helped me through all of the tough decisions and are very empathic to the situation at hand. I would recommend RBA in a heartbeat!!

Awful experience

Felt like cattle. Dr Dorothy Mitchell Leef charged $250 for about a 20 minute consult. Told us we needed to do IVF ASAP then sent us to another room where several staff members went over fees. We were crushed. Found Dr Leef very inconsiderate. Went to another doctor. Dr Randell he was wonderful and told us no reason why I couldn't get preggers. Got pregnant 3 months later NATURALLY. Have a healthy baby boy. Paid/Co-pay: $250
