Describe the protocols David Brinton used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Surgery of Michigan and their degree of success.
My first treatment with dr Brinton i was prescribed 50mg of Clomid for days 3-7. Cycle day 1 I would call to schedule blood work. I would go in do blood work. Wait for a call to see if I ovulated. After I would go back in on cycle day 4 for an ultrasound. He would scan my ovaries to get measurements. I believe I had 2 eggs one measuring 19, and the other measuring 24. I was given my Pregnly injection. I went back for my iui the next day and the procedure was done. Two weeks later went for blood work that was negative. I went back in for another scan, was prescribed 100mg Clomid cycle day 3-7. I went for blood work and scan. I ovulated, and was told to do the injection at home. No iui this time, just times intercourse every other day. Two week wait, another negative pregnancy test. That was my last visit

They [ARMS] were very kind and you didn't feel like just a number. However, I would have appreciated some modern conveniences like email and getting information that way or being able to email a nurse....Our total cost per round of IVF was around $12,000....Took a while to get my paperwork sent to my OBGYN but for the most part they were great!...During the first round of IVF (unsuccessful) DR Brinton did most of my ultrasounds. During the second round (successful) the PA did most of them but DR Brinton reviewed everything before I got instructions each day.

Describe your experience with Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Surgery of Michigan.

How was your experience with David Brinton at Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Surgery of Michigan?
Dr. Brinton is very kind and welcoming. He was honest and didn't sugar coat things but also shared information in a compassionate way. Some disappointments were that I didn't always see him, I often had appointments with the PA. I also didn't have great success with embryos developing but I think that could be the lab as well. We had 2 embryos to transfer on each cycle. The first cycle was not successful. The second cycle was successful and both took but we lost one of the babies early on (around 9 weeks).

They [Advanced Reproductive Medicine and Surgery of Michigan-Bloomfield Hills] start early. Sometimes as early as 6:30 which was really helpful for me... All ultrasound times were scheduled... Dr brinton had me go to get a scan done (can't remember the name), one of my tubes was blocked so he started me just on clomid for a few cycles. Then Femara and iui. I did that for a few cycles with no luck. Then I started injectables and iui.
