How was your experience with Joseph Stanford at University of Utah?
Dr. Joseph Stanford had me chart my cycles for two or three months, evaluated it along with my symptoms, and diagnosed me with Endometriosis and pushed me to get a laparoscopy. I have it scheduled, and I am eagerly awaiting to see what my surgeon finds!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Joseph Stanford at University of Utah?
His take on fertility takes a longer amount of time, but in the long run, he will get down to the problem and help you solve it, instead of bypass the problem with test tubes and unnecessary meds.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Joseph Stanford at University of Utah?
Dr. Joseph Stanford would respond to my MyChart emails promptly, he called me after an appointment and asked if it was ok to order one more blood work test. He is very personable and great to count on.
Describe the protocols Joseph Stanford used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
Dr Stanford saw me in Dec 2016, he asked me to begin charting my cycle so he could get an idea of what my body was lacking. He says it is usually hormonal imbalances or blockages. I charted for two months, met with a nurse practitioner who specializes in teaching charting, and then we saw him Feb 8, 2017. He rated my cervical mucus as good, and based on my symptoms, said I had endometriosis and I should get a laparoscopy. Most traditional RE and OB doctors discourage laparoscopy, because of the risks, and he explained the risks, but he said the risks DO NOT outweigh the cons. I don't think I would have ever gotten a laparoscopy if it weren't for him. We will see the results and what they find!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were happy and upbeat and showed appropriate support if something hard happened. I liked them.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
The location is in Daybreak, South Jordan Utah. Kind of for for me. Very nice brand new building. I hated the self check in - it took forever. Pretty low wait time our second appointment. Our first appointment we waited 40 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Joseph Stanford at University of Utah.
He changed his billing process while we were with him. He started billing things separately and billing for MyChart email questions, I think.
