My wife and I had a terrible experience with Dr. Selick and her nurse, Barbara. We have been reluctant to tell others about it since we don’t want to slander anybody, but it’s interesting to see that there seems to be a pattern and that we are not unique in our critique.
We went to Dr. Selick for our second round of infertility treatment; our first office visit should have set off an alarm already. We were required to take a class with Barbara, Dr. Selick’s head nurse, to go over the drugs for the treatment cycle, how to administer them, etc. Mind you, we had done a cycle just a couple of months prior after which we successfully froze a few embryos, but we appreciated being reminded of everything.
Barbara was extremely unpleasant to deal with. She was unfriendly, clearly didn’t want to be bothered, was disinterested in us and her job and on top of that, she had the audacity to question why we were even trying infertility treatment, expressing her very negative opinions about it and our chances, even though we’re still in our 30's. Someone in her position should be supportive to couples trying to have a baby, not bring them down!
The instructions Barbara gave us differed from our first cycle as far as the amount of certain drugs were concerned, and even when asking her about it, she assured us that they were correct. To make a long story short, she made a mistake on one of the drug dosages and we were unsuccessful in harvesting any eggs in our 2nd round because of it.
The experience with Dr. Selick mirrored what other posters here have experienced. She always rushes through her appointments, is very hard to get a hold off otherwise, often is annoyed by questions and is overall not pleasant to deal with. And she allows her nurse, Barbara, to get away with extremely unprofessional behavior. Additionally, the office tends to mischarge your insurance carrier and expects you to pay higher fees than necessary, so one needs to double check ALL invoices. Do yourself a favor and look for a different doctor.
