He [Dr Tjaiden] really took the time to prepare for our appointments, knew our names, situations and what we had done and future plans for treatment. He laid out information in a way that wasn't scary and was considerate to our situation.... Dr Tjaiden was very straightforward, yet compassionate with my husband and I. He laid out what to expect and treatment options. We knew what to expect and why we were doing it...He is very straight forward.

How was your experience with Bruce Tjaden at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
Dr Tjaiden was very straightforward, yet compassionate with my husband and I. He laid out what to expect and treatment options. We knew what to expect and why we were doing it. While we had a problem with his recommendation for a urologist, an egotistical man with no bedside manner, we have no doubt that he would have given us another referral, if we had requested. Dr Tjaiden even guessed that there was a link between my husband's inherited disease and male infertility earlier in the year that the first study came out confirming that was the case.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Tjaden is always welcoming and treats me like a person, not just a number. He shows care and compassion for what I am going through emotionally as well as medically. I have never left the clinic feeling like he did not care or explain everything in terms I could understand...We discoveres a subseptate uterus, so it was prescribed to do a hysteroscopy and laproscopy first. After the sirgery, it was 30 days of estrogen followed by 7 of progesterone. We did a hysterosonogram to,check that everything was taken care of during surgery. Next cycle was five days of Femara and a day 12 sonogram with trigger shot.
I have yet to find a weakness [at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas]. They communicate well. They smile and make you feel welcome...They check on how you are doing during the visit and are responsive to questions...They [nurses] are always pleasant amd talk to you like a person...We discoveres a subseptate uterus, so it was prescribed to do a hysteroscopy and laproscopy first.

He [Dr. Tjaden] spent a lot of time with us explaining everything and making sure we knew exactly what our options were. ... He was candid and did a good job of taking time to explain everything to us. He had great bed side manor and we always left feeling like we weren’t just a another number. ... We did iui with injectables. The first cycle was not successful. And i had ovarian cysts that resulted from the treatment.
The strengths of the clinic [Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas] are they were very accommodating to our schedule and our cycle. At a different, much larger clinic, we had to come in certain days/times to do certain treatments and felt like we were a cog in the machine. I never felt that way at this clinic ... The clinic worked around our schedule to accommodate us driving 2 hrs there. ... The nursing staff were professional and caring.
