Dr. Esteban Brown was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, he explained in full detail every step or procedure that we may have needed. Dr. Brown also showed a great amount of compassion towards my husband and I, always ensuring that we were comfortable and understanding before any procedures or tests were done.... First test I had done was an HSG test to determine if I had tubal blockage and was prescribed Clomid 50mg, first pill started cycle day #5 and the last pill ended cycle day #10.

He [Dr. Brown] couldn’t even recall any of my info. He would file his nails while I spoke to him. Soooo freakin rude!... He has zero bed-side manners. He didn’t personalize my treatment at all. He made comments that were uncalled for and even made a mistake during one of my transfers, I had waned two embryos transferred but only transferred one.... There was no calendar provided for me, only little post-its here and there. It was so confusing.
