My only thing is I wish they [Henry Ford Medical Center] had more locations. It is a far drive for me. Also I had noticed that when I asked to be on Femara they had thought I already was. I was on Clomid actually. Just better communication between staff.... The nursing staff are incredibly nice and sensitive to all of our needs. Very helpful and understanding!... The only costs I encountered we're medications not covered by my insurance.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
She's very thorough I really appreciate a doctor who is. She is also honest, positive, and optimistic. She also listens to her patients!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff are incredibly nice and sensitive to all of our needs. Very helpful and understanding!
How was your experience with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
I like that her and Dr. Strickler have an open line of communication. Also love the fact that it's through my preferred hospital. I went to her after our third loss. She was ontop of everything and laid out a very detailed plan. She also listens to her patients!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
Be open with her! She'll listen and adjust things on a personal level.
Describe the protocols Nicole Budrys used in your cycles at Henry Ford Medical Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Budrys performed a saline infusion hysterography to check all my parts. She also ran other important tests prior to the laid out treatment plan. She first started me on Clomid with an hcg trigger shot. My ovaries responded well and unfortunately we did not get pregnant. Then we did a second round with same results. I then requested to be switched to femara. That cycle was a bust since I had ovulated early on my own. Then I had a leftover cyst from the previous cycle. Every cycle I was monitored closely and given instructions. Every cycle I did produce mature follicles. I think timing was off maybe. With all that id continue with them as I like them and they know my history.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center.
As having recurrent losses they're able to Bill it accordingly. The only costs I encountered we're medications not covered by my insurance. Which was the ovidrel hcg trigger shot. The staff there know how to Bill it right.

[The nursing staff at Henry Ford Medical Center was] Very caring and gentle when it came to blood tests and ultrasounds...doctors are excellent. The overall office staff can be a little hard to deal with. Making appointments can he difficult though it is the Henry Ford system not necessarily the office staff themselves...Tried using timed sexual activity to conceive. That did not work so he moved us to IUI procedures. Have 4 of those and now only option is IVF.
