Dr. Deaton was very thorough and took the time to meet with us and answer all of our questions. We never felt rushed and he was very thorough. When we asked him about risks or odds, he was honest and did not get our "hopes up" but was still optimistic about treatment options. He is very knowledgeable and empathetic.... He gave us an honest evaluation of our situation and changed our diagnosis from "unexplained infertility" to "diminished ovarian reserve." He said IVF was our best option (over IUI, etc.) but was not sure how my body would respond to medications and how many eggs I would produce, and the quality of them.

How was your experience with Jeffrey Deaton at Wake Forest University?
Dr. Deaton was very thorough and took the time to meet with us and answer all of our questions. We never felt rushed and he was very thorough. When we asked him about risks or odds, he was honest and did not get our "hopes up" but was still optimistic about treatment options. He is very knowledgeable and empathetic.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jeffrey Deaton at Wake Forest University?
Ask any question you think of, even if you think it is a silly question. He can answer anything you are questioning or unsure of, and never makes you feel like it isn't a valid thing to question. It will really put your mind at ease, rather than wondering.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jeffrey Deaton at Wake Forest University?
Dr. Deaton is wonderful. He is warm, caring and gives honest expectations. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable and honestly cared about our goals and giving us the best care he could.
Describe the protocols Jeffrey Deaton used in your cycles at Wake Forest University and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Deaton from a previous clinic that was very bad. He gave us an honest evaluation of our situation and changed our diagnosis from "unexplained infertility" to "diminished ovarian reserve." He said IVF was our best option (over IUI, etc.) but was not sure how my body would respond to medications and how many eggs I would produce, and the quality of them. However he said if I did not respond well to the meds we would not have to complete the transfer, but my body did respond reasonably well (I took Menopur, progesterone, estradiol, doxycycline) considering my AMH levels, so we went ahead with an egg retrieval. Our embryos were not developing well and I was brought in for a day 2 transfer. It was suggesting that I transfer all 3 formed embryos, however my husband and I decided to only transfer two so we did not risk having triplets. The two embryos transferred did not take, and the remaining embryo never formed enough to be frozen for future use. After this we took a few months off of everything and are now in the process of looking for donor embryos or donor eggs to proceed with a new IVF cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wake Forest University. (Assigned nurse: Lauren Edington)
Lauren was wonderful. She was the main nurse we worked with, but we also had Roxanne who was great as well. Lauren was available 24/7 for questions and put us at ease with our medications. The training for medications was thorough and easy to understand. If we had questions about the steps after we left, she was easy to reach and happy to help. We could not have done the cycle without Lauren's help!
Describe your experience with Wake Forest University.
Wake Forest was a great clinic. The staff were always friendly and caring. Patty, the financial coordinator, was extremely helpful and warm. She answered all of our questions and made herself available whenever we needed.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Deaton at Wake Forest University.
We spent approximately $9000 on the treatments and appointments at Wake Forest, and approximately $1700 on IVF medications. We received a discount on our medications through the clinic helping us sign up for a discount program at a pharmacy they work with frequently.
Describe Jeffrey Deaton's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wake Forest University.
Our doctor worked with the embryologist to make a recommendation for how many embryos to transfer. He told us from the beginning that because my egg quality was unknown, they would make that "call" as the embryos were forming in order to give us the best odds. I think this was a smart approach, as we were informed of the risks of multiple transfers vs. increased odds, etc. and I believe they made the right decision based on the information at each stage.

We are early in the process. But so far, Dr Deaton was at my first appointment and explained our goals, procedures, expectations. Since then I have only seen the nurse and sonographer each time. He was genuine, knowledgeable, realistic and sincere on our consultation meeting.... So far I have tried two rounds of femara 5mg for 5 days. Was planning for an IUI this month but my endometrium was too thin. We are upping the dose of femara to 7.5mg next month if we don’t get pregnant naturally.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I’ve met with Roxanne and another nurse (can’t remember her name) now a few times during ultrasound/lab appointments. I’ve also communicated on the mobile chart app. They’ve been knowledgeable, prompt and helpful.
Describe your experience with Wake Forest University.
The clinic is very clean and organized. Everyone works very well together in planning and caring for the patients. The front desk clerk can be a little less compassionate and wasn’t the best first impression for me. But now that I am a couple appointments in, I’ve learned the rest of the team makes up for it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jeffrey Deaton at Wake Forest University.
This office is in network for me but I have a deductible to meet. Not 100% sure on specifics.

Describe your experience with Wake Forest University.
Strength: The clinic works with your schedule and will fit you in ASAP. Weakness: they only have one office right now and it is an hour from my work. I have to schedule appt very early in the morning or late afternoon. I wish they would open their Greensboro office again.
