During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with John Lucas at Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health?
He looked me in the eye, respected my ability to know my own body and was kind and gentle through my 4th miscarriage. He stayed late to do an ultrasound when I was nervous with my successful pregnancy. Had a great sense of humor.
Describe the protocols John Lucas used in your cycles at Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health and their degree of success.
He did extensive bloodwork which helped us figure out the issues. I have MTHFR which makes it difficult for my body to use folic acid (a true need during pregnancy). I remember Dr. Lucas actually getting his laptop and searching the right folate for me on the internet so I would know where to get the correct vitamin I needed to take (Methylated Folate). Also, he put me on progesterone for the first trimester since mine would tank each time around 6-7 weeks. I had weekly ultrasounds from week 7-13. Then he cleared me for general pregnancy treatment and got me hooked up with the practice I wanted to deliver my baby.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Loved them. When I got a good ultrasound, they would cheer with me and get me a special envelope to hold it in. They said they looked forward to my weekly visits and made me feel comfortable.
