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.
