Dr. Karges is a kind, compassionate, competent, and skilled doctor. She always listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. I did not feel like she was rushed in appointments. She always had hope even when I didn't. I finally have a beautiful, healthy baby because of her!...She knows what she's doing! Follow her recommendations even if you don't think they are necessary. For instance, I kept putting off endometriosis surgery because I had recently had endo surgery with another doctor. I wish I hadn't as I conceived within two months of the surgery when Dr. Karges did it.

Describe the protocols Kathryn Karges used in your cycles at Caritas and their degree of success.
First I did a series of blood draws every other day for one cycle to evaluate my hormones pre and post peak. It was determined that my hormones were low throughout my whole cycle. After that I started on femara, HCG, and estradiol to improve my hormone levels. She also recommended several mucus enhancers including an antibiotic. Every month I would have my hormone levels checked 7 days past ovulation and she would adjust dosages as needed. Once my levels were good and I still was not conceiving, she did a diagnostic laparoscopy during which she discovered endometriosis as well as a uterine infection. I started on antibiotics for the infection and had robotic assisted surgery to remove the endo a couple of months later. Two months after the second surgery I conceived.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Caritas. (Assigned nurse: Terri)
Terri was Dr. Karges's nurse that I worked with. She was the one I primarily communicated with. She was caring and compassionate and I never felt like I was a bother when I would call with questions.
Describe your experience with Caritas.
The actual clinic itself has moved since I have been there. It is now associated with a different hospital. I can not provide feedback on the clinic at this time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kathryn Karges at Caritas.
I don't quite understand this question. The costs were what you would expect for seeing a doctor. There were also costs for my compounded medications (not covered by insurance) and my labs each month.
