How was your experience with William Butler at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent?
Dr. Butler is very blunt and always seems rushed. I felt like my questions were more dismissed than answered in some cases. He seems educated on treatment techniques and surgical techniques. Geographically they aren’t many fertility options and he doesn’t offer IVF, but the clinic will monitor patients doing IVF out of Atlanta so that is nice.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Butler at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent?
When you go to see him, don’t expect great bedside manner. He will give you a quick and blunt explanation of what is going on and the treatment he recommends. Make sure you have your questions ready and advocate for yourself to get them answered.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with William Butler at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent?

Describe the protocols William Butler used in your cycles at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with PCOS initially. I did several cycles of femara that were successful in ovulation but not pregnancy. I then had an exploratory surgery where I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis. I had the endometriosis removed during the surgery. I then moved on to gonal f injections with a trigger shot and IUI. I have done 3 unsuccessful cycles so far.

Describe your experience with Central Georgia Fertility Navicent.
The staff in the clinic are friendly and welcoming. The biggest negative is the clinic is small so if the physician or nurse are out then patients can’t be seen at all. The financial coordinator is really helpful and calls patients whenever there are any insurance concerns and is always happy to answer questions and assist.
Describe the costs associated with your care under William Butler at Central Georgia Fertility Navicent.
The costs are similar to every fertility doctor. The nice thing is they always communicate the potential costs up front. The office even let me know my husbands insurance would cover some of the fertility treatments and encouraged me to get on his insurance.
