How was your experience with Jan Rydfors at Freyja Clinic?
He runs behind in his appointments, but that's because he spends all the time you need when he's with you. (He was running more than 3 hours late for our first appointment, and it's a credit to him that my husband still agreed we should work with him!) He cares a lot, and is very up to date on current science. He thinks creatively about your problems and will recommend other providers if he thinks that's your best course of action.
He treated me for about 9 months (Femara + IUI, and Injectables + IUI), diagnosed my immunological issues and endometriosis, and recommended a clinic for IVF when it was clear I'd need to move onto IVF. He saw me through 4 devastating miscarriages (during IVF) and delivered my first son (through IVF).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jan Rydfors at Freyja Clinic?
Schedule the first appointment in the morning so you're less likely to have to wait. And if you get pregnant, book all your appointments up front.

Dr. Rydfors has the best bedside manner of any doctor I've ever worked with. He saw me through four devastating miscarriages, and delivered my first son. He cares immensely.
Describe the protocols Jan Rydfors used in your cycles at Freyja Clinic and their degree of success.
Femara (he prefers it to Clomid in every way) + IUI, Gonal-F + IUI. Intralipids for treating immunological issues.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is fine, but the office is very disorganized. The individuals are very nice, but managing Dr. Rydfors' chaotic schedule has to be incredibly challenging, and appointments were always a problem. Eventually I learned to always call first to see what time I should actually show up (but then often couldn't get through to a person in the office).
Describe your experience with Freyja Clinic.
Dr. Rydfors is amazing, but the rest of his team is more mixed. The office is super chaotic, and his appointments are almost never on time. That said, he's worth it.
