Multiple people recommended this doctor [Dr. John Swanson] to me. He’s an obgyn that accepted my insurance but also has a lot of infertility expertise. Dr Swanson is very kind and calm. He was clear in his treatment plan and always stayed positive. I often cried in front of him and he listened and was compassionate...He is very busy so you will often see his NP...
The office staff [at John A. Swanson, MD] was kind. Sometimes it was kind of hard to get a hold of them via phone so I often left messages but they would return my calls. Overall I do not have any complaints as far as office staff...I saw 3 different NPs and all were very kind and knowledgeable. They would follow up on the treatment plan recommended by Dr Swanson...

He is an obgyn not just a fertility doctor. He is very busy so you will often see his NP.

I felt like a human. He is very warm and compassionate. He is very busy so our appointments were usually short or he was not there, his NP would be there.
Describe the protocols John A. Swanson used in your cycles at John A. Swanson, MD and their degree of success.
I did 3 cycles of femera to stimulate follicle production. He did ultrasounds prior to ovulation to see if healthy follicles were developing and he would advise on when my husband and I should start trying. He also encouraged me to track my cycles and what opks to use. When the femera did not work, he said the next step was IUI but we took a break then my health insurance changed to Kaiser and we had to switch doctors.

Describe the costs associated with your care under John A. Swanson at John A. Swanson, MD.
I did not have very many costs, but we also did not get far in our treatment. My insurance did not cover things that were strictly fertility. They covered more with this doctor, such as office visits I think because he is an obgyn and not strictly a fertility doctor.
