Sorry you went through this too. I really had my hopes up today and felt so let down afterwards...not just for me but for all the other scared people like us that are so desperate to solve this problem.
As far as the blood goes, did you ask him WHAT he was testing for exactly? He didn't take much from me and also didn't tell me what he was testing it for. And "what" hospital would it go to? That was odd.
If you are in NYC maybe you can help me figure out with is up with the Jetti Katz lab 6 blocks down also on the Park. I don't get it.
Obviously, tropical clinics have not been closed down to to city budgets....there are two of them on 5th Ave alone. What's up with this?
Sorry but it is suspicious that these guys are in rancid roach motels on the Park charging this kind of money.
I know that specialists are expensive in NYC but the only ones that I have ever encountered that do not take insurance of any kind were fertility doctors. But their offices look like spas, they spend hours on end with you, do sonograms, bloodwork, all kinds of testing, phone calls, follow ups free of charge, counseling, etc.
