He [Dr John Lucas at Vanderbilt] 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....I felt he truly knew what he was doing but explained things to me in a way that I could understand the doctor jargon. He was kind and not pushy. Respectful and genuinely got upset when he learned that other doctors had not pursued my issues earlier.

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.
Describe your experience with Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health.
The ultrasound tech was AMAZING. I've had compliments on her ultrasounds from the early days. They are organized and helpful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Lucas at Vanderbilt Center for Women's Health.
$1500 for miscarriage d&c. A few $20 copays. All other costs factored into pregnancy/delivery through insurance.

One situation sums it up: He [Dr John Lucas] "diagnosed" me with PCOS after only running a few blood tests. No ultrasound to examine my ovaries either. He also forgot to give me this diagnosis. One day he casually mentions my PCOS and I tell him he never told me that before. He then proceeds to debate me on that point. I got a new doctor and I did not have PCOS at all.
