What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Kondapalli
“Dr. Kondapalli is amazing! I had a very bizarre medical problem, to say the least, but she and her team have been so helpful during this time. I would recommend Dr. Kondapalli and her team to anyone who needs her services. She is an excellent physician/specialist and a genuinely kind and fun person, which can be hard to find. The same goes for her team. Everyone who I’ve dealt with through this journey has been so professional, kind and trustworthy. Thank you, Dr. Kondapalli and the amazing staff at CCRM!”
“My husband and I contacted CCRM after our local clinic recommended that we use donor eggs due to high FSH and a low antral follicle count. During our initial phone consult, we told Dr. Kondapalli we wanted to do a donor cycle with CCRM. Dr. Kondapalli sent us the CCRM donor egg database, but also recommended that we wait until our one day work-up to make a decision about proceeding with a donor cycle or cycling with my eggs. After our one day work-up in July 2016, Dr. Kondapalli thought we might have success cycling with my eggs, even in spite of some less than ideal lab results. She was up front and told us it may take several cycles, but if we were willing to proceed, she was too. We traveled to Denver and did a cycle with my eggs in November 2016. Dr. Kondapalli knew the exact protocol for dealing with someone with diminished ovarian reserve, and her recommended protocol ultimately led to one cycle where we had three CCS normal embryos. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant with a baby boy after transferring one embryo, and I doubt we would have had this type of success at another clinic. CCRM, Dr. Kondapalli, and the entire staff (especially the nurses) were wonderful throughout the entire process. They were always responsive to phone calls and emails, and were so skilled in dealing with my difficult fertility condition. I think CCRM has experience and knowledge that other clinics do not, and this can mean the difference between a successful vs. unsuccessful cycle. Dr. Kondapalli’s bedside manner with patients is wonderful, and she and the nursing staff helped us navigate the emotionally and physically draining IVF process on so many different occasions. CCRM helped us complete our family, and we cannot recommend them enough.”
