How was your experience with Amy Brown at Obstetrics Gynecology & Infertility?
Dr. Brown is personable, knowledgeable, patient, kind, resourceful, and supportive. She is an OB, however she has treated my whole self with a regular check in on mental health too. If she is ever running late she is very apologetic, but I don't mind because when we have had losses we had lots of questions too and had very long appointments. I would want her to do the same for others since those appointments meant the world to my husband and I. She also came to visit me at the hospital for my first delivery even though she wasn't on call.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Amy Brown at Obstetrics Gynecology & Infertility?
On our very first visit, Dr. Brown listened and gave us a list of things we could look into based on our health history. She explained how we could call the billing office, get codes, and call our insurance too in order to see which procedures would be covered. This allowed us to decide for ourselves what things we would want to move forward with in regards to uncovering why we continued to have miscarriages. She explained each procedure in full and what timing would be needed for each as well since it would be important to time off of my cycle. We ended up having one more miscarriage while under her care, but prior to us being able to complete the full list of procedures. She had been on vacation during that time so another doctor met with us about our options, however she called to apologize for being gone during such an important time in our care and relationship with her. It meant a lot to have someone who was on this journey with. Especially someone we trusted and appreciated. She also has since explained any additional options once becoming pregnant (now for our second child) to ensure we continue to have successful pregnancies and that my mental health is good as well.
Describe the protocols Amy Brown used in your cycles at Obstetrics Gynecology & Infertility and their degree of success.
We couldn't figure out the ultimate reason for our recurrent miscarriages, but had a few highly potential reasons. Due to this, she recommended Quad treatment. We also did a Saline Infused Sonogram which found a polyp. During our D&C we had genetics testing done on the the fetus and we also did chromosomal testing done ourselves to see if we were carriers for anything. We also did blood clotting tests and progesterone tests. Once we were pregnant we continues baby aspirin until 36 weeks to reduce chance of blood clotting.
