Choosing to go to Dr. Silverberg and the Texas Fertility Center (TFC) is one of the best life decisions I ever made.
I now have two children by way of a single IVF cycle (fresh and frozen embryo transfer). Here are some reasons why I sing Silverberg’s praises. Oh and by the way, I have never taken the time to write a review for any doctor. However, I owe it to those of you out there that are sitting on the fence about what to do about your infertility.
As I grappled with the depression and frustration of infertility, I almost didn’t make the call to his office. I’m so glad that I did. Dr. Silverberg is the hardest working doctor I have ever met and he is truly dedicated to his profession and his patients. He’s the only doctor that has called me from his cell phone to chat before our first appointment. He works weekends and holidays when needed. I’m not sure where he finds his boundless energy, but it is impressive. He is an expert in his field, passionate about what he does, makes sure patients are informed of all their options and he is honest about potential outcomes, If you have 100 questions, he will answer everyone one of them! With all that said, he is direct and frank. Don’t mistake that for anything other than what it is — It is his dedication to arming you with the information needed to make the best decisions and to prepare you for the arduous journey of fertility treatment. He also gave me hope and encouragement when I was pessimistic about my chances.
Silverberg is a superb doctor, but he doesn’t move mountains alone! The entire Texas Fertility Team is top notch. They are very well organized, professional, responsive to patients and make the TFC experience a good one. That is exactly what you need when you are contending with the stress of fertility treatment. My parting advice in this review is this — Please do not waste your time with any OB GYN whose primary focus is not fertility treatment. Even if they are certified to practice fertility, there is a very good chance that they are not experts who will get you the results you want. What the Silverberg and the TFC team do is a finely tuned treatment plan and it truly is a specialized field. Prior to seeing Dr. Silverberg, I wasted a year and a half with an OB GYN who was “certified” but not qualified to treat infertility. Timing of when you seek fertility assistance can critically affect your changes of getting pregnant. I also wasted money and endured a lot of unnecessary grief. Dr. Silverberg… Thank you! Thank you! You changed my life for the better. I now have a family.
