She [Dr. Brown] gave me a higher dose of follistim at 375 and never lowered the dosage. I think this helped produce the amount of eggs...She prefers one [embryo] at a time but is open to the individual situation...I felt like a human because she thoroughly went over my history and asked several questions. She's doesn't act as a therapist by any means, but she shows she cares by hearing you out and spending time on your case.

How was your experience with Jessica Brown at Madison Women's Health and Fertility?
Dr. Brown is the third RE I’ve been to in my two plus years of trying. Since the very beginning, I knew I had an attachment issue. But at 38 years old, my other RE’s just concluded that my unexplained infertility was due to my age. My first two rounds of IVF only resulted in retrieving three eggs. Only 1 embryo transfers which didn’t work. At that time, I was told it was an egg issue. And I grieved for months as I tried to find a new doctor who would pay attention to my case. Then I met Dr. Brown. Our first meeting was two hours long as she went through every moment of my journey. She’s not emotional, but shows she cares by being thorough and looking for as many answers as she can. I was petrified as I went into my third retrieval. I assumed all of our money was about go up in smoke. When I woke up from the procedure and they told me they got 11 eggs, the tears just streamed down my face. 8 were mature, 7 fertilized and 3 made it to freeze. But then Dr. Brown conducted a biopsy on my lining since I said it was an attachment issue. Turns out I have endometriosis. When I asked for this test from other doctors, I was told it wasn’t necessary. But Dr. Brown heard me. I’m now being treated for the endo and then have a transfer. I’ve had to become my own self advocate during this process, but you also need a doctor who will work with you in the way you want and need. I found that with Dr. Brown.

How was your experience with Jessica Brown at Madison Women's Health and Fertility?
Dr. Brown is extremely intelligent, thoughtful, and optimistic. Throughout my long road to becoming pregnant, she always remained hopeful as she adjusted the medication and various protocols to create the optimal conditions for a successful pregnancy. After each IVF cycle, she considered the previous protocol and adjusted as needed.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jessica Brown at Madison Women's Health and Fertility?
Although Dr. Brown may not appear to be overly warm, she is, in fact, a very caring doctor. After a year and a half as her patient, I grew to understand her. Her seriousness should not be confused with a lack of care or coldness but rather as a representation of her commitment to her patients. It is clear that she gives a lot of thought to each and every aspect of the fertility process. Therefore, I would suggest that any perspective patient of Dr. Brown's trust that she will provide the utmost care.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
After a year and a half, I got to know the nurses pretty well. They were all extremely earnest in their desire to support the fertility process. I often spoke with them regarding next steps (ie medication) and they were helpful in providing clear information. For example, one nurse spent time showing my husband how to give me progesterone shots.
Describe your experience with Madison Women's Health and Fertility.
I rarely had to wait when going to a doctor's appointment and they always worked around my busy work schedule. They have weekend hours as well to accommodate time-sensitive procedures. Although there were times when I had to see the other two doctors in the practice, Dr. Moomjy or Dr. Matera, I felt confident that I was in good hands and knew that they consulted with Dr. Brown about all the results of the visit.
