I took Clomid, but it did not work. Dr. Holman changed me to Letrozol. The Letrozol worked and we used a trigger shot with each cycle. None of those worked alone. We then added IUI for one round which was unsuccessfull. We finally added Follistim shots before IUI. That worked on the 3 round of IUI.

the initial visit was kind of cold. I imagine that he [Dr. Holman] sees a lot of people and makes assessments. Once I was an actual patient (paid my $$$$) the attitude changed and he was very warm and guided me completely. ... He suggested a single embryo transfer, but I wanted to embryo's. He agreed that this would be fine. Ended up with one healthy baby. ... Don't be discouraged if at first he seems distant.
When I was first trying to arrange my procedures, the staff member [PREG] that calls patients to schedule the first appointment never received my file. I had to call in a week later asking for status, she had to hunt down my file and call me back. I was a minor setback, but at the time it was a slap in the face. ...I liked being able to quickly get in and out at any time for blood work, at times that worked for me; which was usually first thing in the morning, or during my lunch hour. Nurses remembered me and were always compassionate, especially when I had a blood clot. ...

We had plenty of kind, face to face, contact [with Dr. James Holman]. I was completely convinced in Dr. Hoilman's approach...When we entered treatment with him we were feeling light in spite of so much we had gone through...Most treatments were administered by nurses, and that was fine. I always felt like were were in good hands...He will listen to you and explain whatever you need...We used Clomid and IUI...I always felt like we were moving forward
This clinic [Piedmont Reproductive Endocrinology Group] is worth the time and money. Please consider going here if you are considering Fertility Treatments. The whole process is so extremely personal and emotional I can barely remember a thing about it all. One of the things I do remember is relief being there in contrast to the other treatment facilities we sought. I always felt like we were moving forward there...[nurses were] very kind and caring. They were always eager to answer questions.

He [Dr. James Holman] was warm and encouraging...Worth seeing. Knowledgeable and kind. I felt like I could ask questions and was reassured that he would adjust treatment if we needed to. We went multiple times to have imaging to make sure the eggs were growing and he was calm and made sure we felt comfortable with his course of treatment. He kept us informed... I can't put a dollar amount on him. He was worth everything!
There are no weaknesses [at Piedmont Reproductive Endocrinology Group]. They know you by name when you walk in, they are used to seeing you time and time again. They have supported us after the birth and have contests and a great Facebook page where they support families. I cannot imagine going elsewhere...He [Dr. James Holman] was warm and encouraging...Worth seeing. Knowledgeable and kind.
