I wanted a dr who took the whole body into account and would address my autoimmune issues in fertility treatment. She [Dr. Jennifer Brown] said she didn't think there was a connection between my infertility and auto-immune, and that's why I left her as a patient. In addition, I had to have 3 septum surgeries and she was not great at communicating the risk before having the first that I would have to have more than one due to the length of the septum.

How was your experience with Jennifer Brown at CCRM Colorado?
Dr Brown had a good bedside manner but just wasn't the right fit for me and my needs. I wanted a dr who took the whole body into account and would address my autoimmune issues in fertility treatment. She said she didn't think there was a connection between my infertility and auto-immune, and that's why I left her as a patient. In addition, I had to have 3 septum surgeries and she was not great at communicating the risk before having the first that I would have to have more than one due to the length of the septum. This led to a big let down after the first surgery - to find out I needed another and then another...
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jennifer Brown at CCRM Colorado?
Ask for clarity about any risks/potential next steps before a surgery. Also, if you have other health issues that YOU believe are connected to infertility, I don't think she will be a good fit for you!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Jennifer Brown at CCRM Colorado?
Dr Brown treated me like a human, but she wasn't willing to adjust my treatment based on my health issues. She said CCRM had specific protocols, and those were the only ones she was willing to use with me.
Describe your experience with your nurse at CCRM Colorado.
It definitely felt like we were a number with the nursing staff. They were nice, but they didn't seem to know our situation enough as they should have
