Dr Ryan was personable and sympathetic when I managed to get appointments with her, but there was almost no contact with her in general. She has the clinic staff manage 95% of the communication and questions, does not discuss results or plans herself, doesn't explain things in detail, and is hard to get an appointment with...She didn't explain my diagnosis in depth or offer much literature on my condition. On the plus side, she was helpful in recommending additional resources such as counselors when I did see her...
[nursing staff at University Reproductive Car] Helpful, but a little chaotic. I often received contradictory information, lack of explanations, and occasionally instructions that were clearly counter to my plan...as part of the UW system I have found this clinic's billing process to be mostly easy and correct, and the communication via e-care is quite easy...
How was your experience with Ginny Ryan-Buresh at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Lack of communication and lack of detailed explanations were the biggest drawback. I often felt that Dr Ryan was not involved in treatment decisions, and if she was, it was only behind the scenes. She didn't explain my diagnosis in depth or offer much literature on my condition. On the plus side, she was helpful in recommending additional resources such as counselors when I did see her.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
Helpful, but a little chaotic. I often received contradictory information, lack of explanations, and occasionally instructions that were clearly counter to my plan.
Describe your experience with University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
Strength - as part of the UW system I have found this clinic's billing process to be mostly easy and correct, and the communication via e-care is quite easy. Weakness - Little interaction with my doctor, and, until I asked to be assigned to a consistent nurse, questions answered by various random staff members who mostly did not know my history. (This improves quite a bit if you are assigned a consistent team)
