Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Compassionate, skilled, experienced. She [Dr. Boots] is realistic, thoughtful, and hopeful. Responsive when directly reach out and state want to speak with dr. Most communication is canned responses of next steps and with nurse [Northwestern Medicone]. ... 3 medicated IUI cycles using 100mg Clomid x 5 days, Ovidrel trigger shot, IUI and progesterone. 3 cycles using 7.5 mg Letrozole x 5 days, timed intercourse, progesterone.
Great hours [at Northwestern Medicine], reasonably accessible, in person reception staff is good. With high number patients, sometimes feel like a number. Hard to schedule appointments directly through scheduling, often need nurse or dr to intervene. ... Nurse in training experience x 3, unsettling for first IUI, lacked confidence and did not relay follow up information

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina E. Boots at Northwestern Fertility & Reproductive Medicine?
The system gets you in and out efficiently. This is great for working people but human connection is lacking as a result. There are occasional disconnects when information sent via messaging vs phone call or in person appointment. The conveniences we appreciate and are lucky to have access too also create disconnect in emotional support and person to person interaction.
