Success w/ Doc Not sure
Dr. Heidtke gets to know you and remembers. She is warm and sweet but to the point and honest. She is compassionate and you can tell she cares and wants the best for you. She is willing to come in on weekends and do whatever to help...Did one IUI on letrozole. Took a month off meds, tried the old fashion way. No pregnancies but I was ovulating every month with help from medications. Did round of birth control then started injectable medications and an IUI. Now moving on to IVF. She can do a lot of the lead up for IVF — but I will go see Dr Shamma in Saginaw for egg retrieval and transfer.
[The nurse at Petoskey Gynecology & Infertility is] Amazing. Always available by phone. You feel like she is your friend going through this with you...They worked with me to find an affordable pharmacy...She was willing to discuss what I am comfortable with for my IUI. I had 6 follicles and we went ahead with it...They don’t have the ability to do everything but what they can do for me is amazing. I was at another clinic before I moved here and I feel so fortunate because Petoskey gynecology is amazing. I haven’t had the positive pregnancy yet but they still make me have faith. I know I’m in the best hands possible.

She truly takes the time to review and understand her patients unique situations...I underwent a exploratory surgery by laparoscopy to determine the cause of unexplained bleeding...She explained that I have adhesions on my fimbria which prevent the egg from being swept up. Surgery is out of the question and IVF is my only hope to get pregnant...
Very compassionate and considerate staff[of Petoskey Gynecology & Infertility]. Everything was simple and easy when working with the clinic...Great nursing staff...Dr. Clare Heidtke in Petoskey, Michigan is an exceptional provider and really helped me to deal with and understand the grim reality of my fertility situation...[treatment cost]Very reasonable.
How was your experience with Clare Heidtke at Petoskey Gynecology & Infertility?
Dr. Clare Heidtke in Petoskey, Michigan is an exceptional provider and really helped me to deal with and understand the grim reality of my fertility situation. A few years ago I underwent a exploratory surgery by laparoscopy to determine the cause of unexplained bleeding and some other issues I was having. Unfortunately, during this laparoscopy it was also found that I have scarring on my tubes making me infertile. I had no idea up until then. The doctor did not explain what this meant and offered me no advice for moving forward. After this I worked with another doctor and had an HSG and blood work done. This doctor told me I would have no problem conceiving naturally, told me the previous doctor was too harsh about it and assured me I had nothing to worry about. After months, nearly a year of trying to conceive, diligently, I decided another opinion was needed. I read great reviews on Dr. Heidtke’s practice. She schedules her consults for an hour time so everything is thoroughly looked over. She reviewed my history and explained that what the first doctor found was correct but clarified what it meant for me. She explained that I have adhesions on my fimbria which prevent the egg from being swept up. Surgery is out of the question and IVF is my only hope to get pregnant. This news was devastating but her confidence that with my age and my overall health that IVF would be a good option. She made me feel like it’s gonna be ok and made me feel more confident moving forward in my journey. She is an exceptional provider and I am truly thankful for her and her practice. Without her I was confused, frustrated and did not understand my situation. She truly is great!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Clare Heidtke at Petoskey Gynecology & Infertility?
She may tell you what you don’t want to hear but that is the good thing about her!
