We had a great experience the first time around (and amazing results), and when he [Dr. Brett Davenport] moved to his own clinic, he went to bat for us to help is get custody of our embryos. He absolutely has gone above and beyond what I would have expected of him. As we're trying again, he has made sure everything will go smoothly so that we don't have any of the struggles we had to get to our last transfer.

As we're trying again, he has made sure everything will go smoothly so that we don't have any of the struggles we had to get to our last transfer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
He can move fast, so sometimes, you have to ask him to slow down. I'm good with it because I did so much research on my own before we got to this point and we've done it all before.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
He is so proactive and knows my history without me having to remind him. He is personable and wants to be sure that we're ok with every step along the way.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
My husband has low motility, low morphology, and low count, so we went straight to ivf. He was on clomid and novarel for 6 months the first time. I had a cycle with follistim because that is what my insurance would cover. We had great success with a twin pregnancy. When we went back for an FET, I did injectibles and estrogen and progesterone. Neither of our two remaining embryos stuck. This time around, my husband isn't doing the clomid and novarel, we're just going to go ahead and do icsi. I'm going to be on the same meds as last time because it obviously worked.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Institute of North Alabama. (Assigned nurse: Darcy)
I absolutely love his new staff. They're so much easier to communicate with and I really like that I know everyone in the office.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
He is contracting with ovation fertility in Nashville until his office is complete, but I think I prefer this office. They are right next to the hospital. Going to a small clinic for monitoring and then going to the larger one for retrievals and transfers is very appealing to me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
My insurance covers meds, testing, and monitoring. Our cycle plan (3 retrievals and 3 transfers) will be about 17k.
Describe Brett Davenport's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
He was willing to go ahead and transfer two embryos because we wanted to. He said if we chose to do pgs this time around, he would not transfer two.

Dr. Davenport cares deeply about his patients. I always felt like I was his only patient. I underwent two surgeries during my treatment and each time he prayed before surgery and personally called the day after each one to check on me. He felt our disappointment each time we weren’t pregnant and was overjoyed when we finally got pregnant... It was bittersweet being released from his care when I was 9 week pregnant. I felt he truly cared about me and always took the time to explain each step of the process in a way that my husband and I could understand. He even personally called when lab results were late and after surgery. Dr. Davenport made our infertility journey more bareable.

How was your experience with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Davenport. It was bittersweet being released from his care when I was 9 week pregnant. I felt he truly cared about me and always took the time to explain each step of the process in a way that my husband and I could understand. He even personally called when lab results were late and after surgery. Dr. Davenport made our infertility journey more bareable.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Choose him as your doctor. He is a knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate physician.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama?
Dr. Davenport cares deeply about his patients. I always felt like I was his only patient. I underwent two surgeries during my treatment and each time he prayed before surgery and personally called the day after each one to check on me. He felt our disappointment each time we weren’t pregnant and was overjoyed when we finally got pregnant.
Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Fertility Institute of North Alabama and their degree of success.
We used Femara prior to IUI’s. This was unsuccessful. I had surgery to remove Endometriosis but did not get pregnant as a result. Also, I had a Tubal Cannulation to unblock my tubes and within a few months, I was pregnant.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was invested in my journey. I felt liked they truly cared and were always available to answer questions.
Describe your experience with Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
Dr. Davenport opened his clinic about a year ago. They are working on getting the kinks out of a new practice but overall, the practice and its employees are phenomenal. It was easy to get early appointments (7 AM) and they even came in on a Saturday morning for an IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Fertility Institute of North Alabama.
My care under Dr. Davenport was 100% covered by my insurance.

How was your experience with Brett Davenport at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Davenport is very caring. He always asks how you are doing, and then says "ok, and how are you REALLY doing emotionally". He always explains things well, and does put it in simpler terms when I don't understand. He has now left the practice, and unfortunately I did not get any feedback from him on our failed IVF.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Brett Davenport at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine?
If you don't understand just ASK, he will find a way for you to understand. Also even though he is a doctor he doesn't know what your body feels, so if something feels off (I ovulated early on 3 cycles), call and tell your nurse, they will listen and adjust if needed.

Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was 28, and my husband and I had been trying for 1 year. He put me on 50mg of clomid and did my 1st IUI. We did 3 IUI's, then decided to do the laparoscopy to see if I had Endometriosis. He wasn't expecting that I would have it (even though I showed many of the signs), but I did....everywhere so he removed it. We then tried 3 more IUI's, and then opted for IVF. Since I always ovulated more than one egg with Clomid we went conservative with the dosage of Gonal-F (150units) and Menopur (75units), but that only produced 4 follicles so we opted to do an IUI instead. My second round at IVF we started with 300 units of Gonal-F (lowered to 200 units half way trough) and 75 units of Menopur. I produced 8 follicles this time, and we retrieved 6 mature eggs. 5 fertilized, but 3 stalled at day 3. We implanted both embryos on day 5, but unfortunately they failed. Dr. Davenport left the practice following my IVF so I never got feedback on what the issue could have been. That was disappointing.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Chelsea)
I have worked with many of the nurses (Chelsea, Joan, Jennifer and Brittany who draws the blood) and they are all amazing! They all make you feel like you are their only patient and so compassionate. Chelsea is my nurse and she is fantastic at explaining anything I don't understand. She is also very responsive, she always calls or emails me back quickly.
Describe your experience with Huntsville Reproductive Medicine.
As a new patient I was shocked of how busy they were! Although the waiting room always seems full, they never keep you waiting too long. It is very easy to setup appointments and pay. The clinic is very well kept and clean.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Brett Davenport at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine.
I had Aetna PPO for all of my IUI's and the each costs $500 with the procedure and medicine. I talked to Dr. Davenport when I was changing insurances and he told me to look for one that covered injectable meds...best advice ever! For the IVF I had BCBS of Alabama Gold and it cost about $8000 for the procedure and I paid only $300 for my meds thanks to his advice. The injectables typically cost $4000.

Describe the protocols Brett Davenport used in your cycles at Huntsville Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was 28, and my husband and I had been trying for 1 year. We had taken a "at home fertility" test, mine came back normal but my husband's did not (Dr. Davenport laughed at this, apparently at home test are NOT reliable for men at all). Turns out my husband it fine and I am the problem. He put be on 50mg of clomid and did my 1st IUI. We did 3 IUI's, then decided to do the laparoscopy to see if I had Endometriosis. He wasn't expecting that I would have it (even though I showed many of the signs), but I did....everywhere so he removed it. We then tried 3 more IUI's, and then opted for IVF.

I will start my next try at IVF next week, and they are starting me with 300 units of Gonal-F and 75 units of Menopur. We will see how this one turns out!

We'd done two rounds of unmonitored letrozole with my OB/GYN. We met with Dr. Davenport on CD3, and decided to go straight to IUI. I ovulate fine, but we did clomid to be able to control the timing. 1 round of clomid + 1 ovidrel injection to trigger ovulation. First IUI was successful.
