There was never any change in protocol. He always wanted to do the same exact thing over and over again. ... He is a very compassionate doctor, and seemed to be a great surgeon. However, he is completely catholic based. He no longer believes in IUI or IVF. He will only do medicated cycles, and natural family planning. When your cycle failed, he just had you do the exact same thing again and again. One day he even told me "God just doesn't will some women to have children."
Friendly. Compassionate. Seemed to lose track of things. Messages weren't returned or passed along. While one nurse was out on maternity leave, another was taking over and she was really lost on when and who to contact for things. ... When dosages were to be changed, I wasn't informed until a day or two later. Numerous times I was not contacted with results when I was supposed to be. When I was to have ultrasounds done on specific cycle days, I wasn't told until the last minute. It always went back to "you need to monitor your mucus better".
How was your experience with Christopher Stroud at Fertility & Midwifery Care Center?
He is a very compassionate doctor, and seemed to be a great surgeon. However, he is completely catholic based. He no longer believes in IUI or IVF. He will only do medicated cycles, and natural family planning. When your cycle failed, he just had you do the exact same thing again and again. One day he even told me "God just doesn't will some women to have children." He also put me on clomid for numerous cycles, which I later found out from a different OB/GYN and RE that it makes Ednometriosis worse, which is why I had to end up having 2 back to back surgeries by Dr. Stroud within a year of each other.

Don't go there if you know you might need more intervention than regular medicated cycles and/or natural family planning.
