He [Dr. Awoniyi Awonuga] gave me the wrong dosage by mistake for one of my injections for the iui and I don’t feel like he reviews all of the data carefully enough. For example most recently my husband was tested for his sperm quality...one of his medical students looked up the results really quick since those had not been reviewed yet and just listed off the results. They weren’t great numbers and the dr just said iui will be fine since she was pregnant with his sperm once before. But he didn’t compare his numbers to what they were when we did this 3 years ago and he said he wasn’t concerned.

How was your experience with Awoniyi Awonuga at Wayne State University?
He is very knowledgeable on infertility but felt like he rushed a lot and didn’t always listen. He gave me the wrong dosage by mistake for one of my injections for the iui and I don’t feel like he reviews all of the data carefully enough. For example most recently my husband was tested for his sperm quality. When I went in for my sis test one of his medical students looked up the results really quick since those had not been reviewed yet and just listed off the results. They weren’t great numbers and the dr just said iui will be fine since she was pregnant with his sperm once before. But he didn’t compare his numbers to what they were when we did this 3 years ago and he said he wasn’t concerned. I feel like he should take closer look and review the results. He was too worried about moving onto my test for further discussion. Than at the end of my test he acted like we never had that said conversation about my husbands sperm results and said I need all of my blood work redone because it is out of date and my husband needs to come in to have his sperm evaluated because that is out of date. I had to remind him that we already did all that and that we went over some of the results 20 minutes ago.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Awoniyi Awonuga at Wayne State University?
Ask him any and all questions and make sure you ask him to review everything.
Describe the protocols Awoniyi Awonuga used in your cycles at Wayne State University and their degree of success.
Was t really any strategy. The process was to call in on cycle day one to make an appointment for cycle day 3 ultrasound and blood work. He would review the results and have th nurse call me on Emmy dosage. Than once it was time for iui I was come in and the nurse would perform the iui. I would never talk or see him dying any of this. I can’t remember why he recommended doing iui but it ended up working when we worked with him back in 2015. It was out last iui attempt before we moved into ivf.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Some of the nurses are wonderful and very kind and friendly. Very helpful and willing to answer all the questions that come with the intense process. Some of the nurses though were not very friendly and were rude.
Describe your experience with Wayne State University.
The clinic is not great with time management. I’ve had to wait 2 hours past my appointment time a few times. The average wait time 45 minutes. I’ve had long waits even for when I had an iui scheduled. They didn’t have anyone available to do the iui

I was nervous at 1st and the procedure was stopped and Dr. Awonuga went into full detail of all the steps. When I started on the medication, I felt very ill. I was reassured that the symptoms will pass. The symptoms did pass after a few days. Each round of IUI that didn't end with a pregnancy was sad but I felt the encouragement kept me uplifted.... I would take clomid. Then go in for an ultrasound to watch the egg progression. I would take a booster shot for 5 days leading up to ovulation. When eggs were ready, my husband went in the morning to give a sample. I would go into the office about late afternoon and have an IUI. During the IUI, the nurse would show me the sample ID. She would do the IUI and set a timer. When the timer was done, I would leave.

My experience as a patient was great. I felt comforted and everything explained well with the course of treatment. I was nervous at 1st and the procedure was stopped and Dr. Awonuga went into full detail of all the steps. When I started on the medication, I felt very ill. I was reassured that the symptoms will pass. The symptoms did pass after a few days. Each round of IUI that didn't end with a pregnancy was sad but I felt the encouragement kept me uplifted.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Awoniyi Awonuga at Wayne State University?

Describe your experience with Wayne State University.
The clinic was very clean. The only thing that I was uncertain about was the procedure for ultrasound. They had 3 rooms that let into the ultrasound room. When you heard the knock it was your turn. Then you would change and be done. The waiting room was very spacious and clean. I remember the set-up being nicely spaced out for the blood draws, to ultrasounds to patient rooms.
