Infertility Causes
Fertility is an issue among about 12% of the female population in the United States—well, at least among women between the ages of 15 and 44. That is a rather significant number of women who are either unable to become pregnant or who are unable to carry a baby to term. And this figure only...

I'm writing to their office as well as here but I thought I should let anyone coming here know something. I've heard good things about Dr. Shamma, it's unfortunate that his employees at the Toledo office were incredibly inconsiderate, rude, and unhelpful.
I've unfortunately forgotten the women who worked the desk's name, but she was probably the worst part of our ordeal with this office.
Our first instance was a combination of miscommunications between them and the hospital my husband (2nd occurance of cancer) was staying at. I don't blame them for that but the front desk seemed to have blamed us for it. I know this because after the second issue she told me on the phone, "ever since you came here we've had nothing but issues with communication"

Speaking of which, the second miscommunication was completely her fault. When we finally got a sample in to test and freeze, we put down a "number we can reach you at" the technitians said it was to tell us if they could freeze anything. Never got a call but our doctor told us the results were zero several days later.
When I called the front desk she said they legally couldn't discuss the results. I didn't ask for the results all I wanted to know was if anything could be frozen so I could know if we needed to schedule another freeze. We were on a time limit because my husband had to start treatment asap. The women at this office became very obviously frustrated with me.

I'm sorry if I came across as hostile (I didn't believe I was) but you are dealing with sensitive medical issues with sensitive people. How can you work the front desk if you're so insensitive and emotional towards a family member dealing with a sick spouse? It was unacceptable behavior. We managed to reschedule and go to another location in Michigan.
The people there told us yet again they would call if they could freeze. Again, all I asked for them to tell us.

We hated our experience here and ended up working with another clinic in Columbus instead. (Who called and told us if they got results)

I'm sure the Dr. here would've been great, it's unfortunate his staff was so incompetent and hostile towards us the entire time we tried to use their services.

Dr. Shamma is an excellent doctor. He is very compassionate and understanding of the infertility couples experience. He is very thorough and keeps his patient's informed at all times. The staff is just as courteous and helpful of any questions or information needed. I highly recommend him! We are expecting our first this fall and could not be any happier! Thank you to Dr. Shamma and ALL of his staff at all locations!

Dr. Shamma is the best. Not just good at what he does he is also a very compassionate doctor. His staff are just as friendly. If it weren't for Dr. Shamma I'd still be waiting and getting older. Thank you Dr. Shamma for the biggest, best blessing anyone could receive.

Dr. Shamma is the best! After two other fertility clinics, multiple medicated and IUI cycles, 2 fresh IVF cycles and one frozen cycle we met Dr. Shamma. With his expertise we completes one IVF cycle at his clinic and have 2 healthy one year old boys. He was so thorough and didn't leave a single detail out. I highly recommend him to anyone going through fertility treatments! My husband and I can never thank him enough.
