How was your experience with Jessica Jones at Shoemaker OB-Gyn?
My first experience was for a pap smear when I could not get an appointment with the other doctor in the practice, Dr Shoemaker. I thought she had a wonderful personality and unlike some of the others very gentle.

Describe the protocols Jessica Jones used in your cycles at Shoemaker OB-Gyn and their degree of success.
Our first cycle was Clomid alone at 50 mg. The office called to tell me that it didn't work because my progesterone blood test showed that I hadn't ovulated. This was not true as I was indeed pregnant. I called to tell them I was pregnant and that my progesterone was too low to indicate ovulation. They made me wait 4 weeks to come in and it was determined at that appointment that I had a missed miscarriage. We went through 3 more cycles of Clomid increased to 100mg. For the fifth cycle I was offered the Ovidrel shot, this was a cycle without Clomid. They did an ultrasound and could see that I was ovulating on my own. I had no lab work until my beta and I had to ask them to test my progesterone as well. It was low so I was prescribed suppositories until I made it to 12 weeks. At 17 week I went in to have my anatomy scan and was told my baby had literally died overnight. I was offered no additional testing by Dr Jones to determine why this kept happening. Any time I have asked questions or told her the observations of the ob that delivered my son I have been met with nothing but defensiveness.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have been a patient at this clinic for years and the nurses have always been amazing. I have never had a problem until I tried to refill a medication that I had been put on for sleep after losing my son. The nurse was extremely rude and treated me like a drug addict, telling me that my 30 day prescription should be lasting me longer than the 42 days it already had.
Describe your experience with Shoemaker OB-Gyn.
The nurses are wonderful for the most part. They genuinely care. They showed more compassion throughout my miscarriages than the doctor did. They are also very quick to return your phone calls and address concerns.
