Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
After reviewing our test results, Dr. Winslow was proactive in planning our treatments but he didn’t want us to spend too much money without having to. Due to our unexplained infertility, he was compassionate and hopeful. He started with one round of oral medicines and timed intercourse. Later, we did 3 IUI procedures with oral medications and injections. After failed attempts, we moved onto IVF. Dr. Winslow retrieved 15 eggs, and only 2 made it to the day 5 blastocyst stage. According to the genetic testing results, one was abnormal and one was considered “no result”. We transferred the no result embryo only a couple days before the corona virus shut down the fertility world. We found out last week the embryo implanted!! We’re beyond excited and thankful for Dr. Winslow! My HCG numbers have been great this past week and we hope they continue to increase!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Dr. Winslow’s nursing staff is incredible!! They are knowledgeable, compassionate, and most importantly personable! Each one of them got to know me and my husband and would frequently ask us about our jobs and hobbies. We couldn’t ask for a better team of nurses!

He [Dr. Winslow] was flexible w the treatment plan when it was something that I felt strongly on...Did an ERA and receptiva (at my request) bc I have recurrent loss Did autoimmune protocol due to my repeat loss and antiphospholipid syndrome SET with a pgs tested embryo- 1st time success after 3 years of loss at another clinic...We did extra testing that wasn’t recommended but I requested and they followed my wishes which I really appreciated since we were out of pocket. It made me feel heard for the 1st time in this IVF process...
A nurse [at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] called w results and they also had someone answering the phone while the clinic was open. I always spoke to someone or got a call back same day. I loved that you almost always saw YOUR doctor at each visit. If your doctor was out you saw another doctor and got your results verbally AT your appointment instead of trying to interpret the US results yourself and ruminating on them until your phone call. Billing was straightforward...
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
FIRM IS THE BEST!!!! We had our 1st daughter via IVF at a local Orlando clinic in 2019. We then had 3 IVF miscarriages and was told we’d need a surrogate. In my bones I knew that wasn’t true. I insisted on testing our remaining embryos along w ones from a new cycle (may 2021) and they were all abnormal except 1 from the new cycle. I heard that FIRM in Jacksonville was using HGH and getting great results. I drove 4 hours round trip to consult w Dr Duffy. He was fantastic, listened to my concerns, and had a plan for me right away. He actually suggested the 1 cycle plan, but I insisted on the 3 cycle one (as more of a guarantee for myself that I could get at least 1 more baby). The next week Dr Duffy announced he was leaving and I was crushed. I did a re-consult with Dr Winslow that week and went over the treatment plan and he was very reassuring and agreed with what Dr Duffy had in place. I had a couple of normal bumps in the road (cysts, ovulating through Bc) but ultimately we got SIX normal embryos from my 1st cycle. We did extra testing that wasn’t recommended but I requested and they followed my wishes which I really appreciated since we were out of pocket. It made me feel heard for the 1st time in this IVF process. Ultimately the tests came back normal but it was so reassuring to me that we left no stone unturned. Dr Winslow was my doctor but Dr Erb did my retrieval and my transfer and she was so compassionate and caring, My 1st transfer at firm resulted in our beautiful baby girl. She was the answer to our prayers. Dr Winslow was so great and even got me in for an extra reassurance ultrasound until I was released to my OB. He always knew my husband and daughters name and my history when he walked into the room. He’s fabulous. Pam the nurse is a GODSEND. I called non stop (hello, anxiety!) and she never made me feel rushed or badly for calling. She also held my hand during my transfer since my husband had my daughter in the waiting room. Office staff: I always got a call back the same day. This was such a breath of fresh air coming from a clinic who didn’t call back or sent a portal message instead (so if you had further questions you were out of luck.) Billing: the billing dept was rocky at first bc they were going through some changes but any error was fixed quickly. They have since gotten so much better. Ultimately we drove 4 hours round trip to every appointment and it was 100% worth it. I HIGHLY recommend FIRM. I couldn’t be happier.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Do your research and write your questions down beforehand. Your doctor primarily sees you and all his patients so sometimes the schedule is tight.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Winslow always knew my husband and daughters name and my chart when he entered the room. He also was very understanding during hiccups in my treatment cycle. He was flexible w the treatment plan when it was something that I felt strongly on (injectable estrogen vs patches- I have an adhesive allergy)

Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Pam)
Pam is the best nurse - anywhere. She’s compassionate and understanding. She knows IVF inside and out and can answer any and all questions. She gets back to you same day. She advocates for her patients. I’ll follow Pam wherever she goes so FIRM should hang on to her! :)
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I was nervous the clinic didn’t use a typical portal but it ended up being such a blessing. I didn’t have to log in and hit refresh 4748392 time a day like at my last clinic. A nurse called w results and they also had someone answering the phone while the clinic was open. I always spoke to someone or got a call back same day. I loved that you almost always saw YOUR doctor at each visit. If your doctor was out you saw another doctor and got your results verbally AT your appointment instead of trying to interpret the US results yourself and ruminating on them until your phone call. Billing was straightforward.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
25,000 for 3 cycle plan (only needed 1) with testing of 17 embryos
Describe Kevin Winslow's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
They encourage SET but said it was my choice. Ultimately I went for a single transfer as my goal is 1 healthy baby at a time. My next transfer I MAY choose 2 as I have a mosaic and a normal of low quality.

Dr. Winslow is caring, however, he is very blunt and straight to the point. He does not sugar coat anything, and he is there to do his job and get you pregnant. He has been in the industry for several years and is very knowledgeable...He is gentle but to the point and knows how to get things done. He has a lot of patients but he always seems to remember me and cares for me when I am in his care. He has never been rude or dismissive.
The clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] is very busy, however, they seem to be on top of things. I haven’t had a bad experience. Wait times are long but that’s because they’re busy and they only have 3 doctors. The billing department could use some help with organization...My full cycle with medicine was around $18,000. Each transfer is close to $3,300 excluding medicines.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
To understand that if you want someone to hold your hand and sugarcoat your journey, then he is not the doctor for you. But if you want to get pregnant and understand why you’re having to go through this, then he is the one!

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was placed on a normal agonist protocol from my previous doctor. Once she moved, I chose to be with Winslow. I did not have my egg retrieval with him but he has done all of my transfers. When my first transfer ended in a miscarriage, I was placed on the same protocol but the next one didn’t end up working. I am now doing testing to determine if there’s any issues with receptivity or immune issues. Once I have results from that, then Dr Winslow will adjust my protocol as needed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The nursing staff has been great. They always call me back in a timely manner and answers all of my questions. The busier the clinic gets, the harder it is for them to remember their patients but they do a really good job of keeping everything organized.

Speak up and make sure you understand everything. Keep your receipts and ask for breakdowns of cost!

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
They have mistakenly forgot to put me on the schedule for an appointment, so thankfully I called and got it fixed. They have also sent me in a room to get ready for an exam but I only needed to do blood work that day. I was unaware of that.

I felt as if I was just another patient for him, [Dr. Winslow] was unfamiliar with my treatment. He didn't take the time to get to know my husband and I...He wasn't very familiar with my situation and it was obvious. I felt rushed during consultations and ultrasounds. I felt like I was bothering him when asking questions...
$5K and change for first cycle and $1K and change for second, due to deductible being met. Paid $1K and change for the transfer...Nursing is hit or miss...The nurses never emailed me and the communication is so dated. I had to take my own notes and their minimal documents they give you are vague and generic...Billing is horrible. They don't answer calls or return calls. Asking them for your invoice or some sort of document to show a breakdown of what you're paying for is like asking them to provide their financials
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I felt as if I was just another patient for him, he was unfamiliar with my treatment. He didn't take the time to get to know my husband and I, unlike the other doctors we had. While reviewing genetic results, he misread them and I had to keep explaining that I was already provided results for one test that he said weren't available. They were on the next page of the report I realized once I left my rushed 15 minute consultation. The worst part is he showed me the documents with the gender of the embryos which I did not want to see.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If you're looking for someone who doesn't rush you and throughly explains things, I would not recommend.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Nursing is hit or miss. I had to do A LOT of following up, unnecessary. For example, they forgot to rebiospy embryos to be sent out. I had to continuously follow up. They definitely added a lot of extra stress to the process. The communication was sparse and they didn't make themselves very approachable. About 80% of the time I'd call I'd have to leave a voicemail and I would maybe get a call back that day. Patty and Pam were the only ones who were on top of things. The nurses never emailed me and the communication is so dated. I had to take my own notes and their minimal documents they give you are vague and generic.

Billing is horrible. They don't answer calls or return calls. Asking them for your invoice or some sort of document to show a breakdown of what you're paying for is like asking them to provide their financials. They also never told me I had a credit, a nurse told me and when I asked to apply it towards my second IVF cycle they said they were holding it in case I had a balance. I had to fight them to left me apply my credit to the next cycle, and I never had a balance afterwards. They documents they do send you in regards to what you've paid make no sense to the average consumer and don't capture what services you paid for.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I've had to call to remind them to call in my prescriptions. I also had to call back to find out when my IVF cycle was starting. I spoke to someone on Saturday morning around 9am, was supposed to hear back within the hour and finally called back at 3pm before they closed to hear 'the nurse was supposed to call you, I'm sorry'. They also screwed up my husband's test, they wrote our insurance down wrong for him and charged him as an uninsured patient because they had the wrong number, rather than calling us to get the correct number.

From day one Dr. Winslow treated us like we were important...Dr. Winslow makes sure to give you the best and worst case scenario in whatever situation you may be in. He makes sure you understand any risks that there may be but he doesn’t do it in a negative way. He says it with respect and from a medical professionals point of view because he cares about his patients and wants the best for them...
ALL of the nursing staff [at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] was absolutely amazing...Anytime I had a random question or concern, I could call and was able to speak with someone right then. Every phone call was answered with happy, cheerful voices who were ready to help...We were treated like family the entire time we were there...They make sure you know you’re not alone through any of it...
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
From day one Dr. Winslow treated us like we were important. I was using another doctors office before being referred and when it was found I would need to see a fertility doctor, the office I was using was very rude and nonchalant about my diagnosis. It was a horrible experience. After meeting with Dr. Winslow and his team I knew without a doubt in this world we were in the right place. I literally can not say one bad thing or “weakness” about anyone at the FIRM.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask questions but be ready for the answers. It may not be what you want to hear but Dr. Winslow makes sure to give you the best and worst case scenario in whatever situation you may be in. He makes sure you understand any risks that there may be but he doesn’t do it in a negative way. He says it with respect and from a medical professionals point of view because he cares about his patients and wants the best for them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Everytime Dr. Winslow walked into the room, he greeted us like he had known us for years. He always wished the best for us and always gave us the most honest truths about every situation. He took time to explain things to us that we were clueless about.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Linda Fricke )
ALL of the nursing staff was absolutely amazing. They cried with us when things didn’t go right and shared excitement with us when things did go right. They instantly became family to us. They never failed us in any way what so ever. I literally cried when we officially “graduated” from the clinic. 3 specific individuals that really touched our hearts was both Linda’s and Leah in the Tallahassee office. Anytime I had a random question or concern, I could call and was able to speak with someone right then. Every phone call was answered with happy, cheerful voices who were ready to help. That was something we were not used to with our previous doctor. We were treated like family the entire time we were there. Everyone at the FIRM was made for that job. Going through infertility can be mentally, emotionally and physically painful and the FIRM has literal angels working for them. They may not know what every individual goes through but you would never know that. They are great and couldn’t be any better. I could write a whole book on them. Lol
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I literally have NO complaints. The FIRM is an amazing place for anyone struggling to get pregnant or needing anything fertility related. They work with you any way they can. They make sure you know you’re not alone through any of it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We honestly lost count of how much we ended up spending. It was definitely a lot of money but compared to other clinics, it was reasonably priced and they were always willing to work with us on making payments when things got a little pricey.

We had a great experience with Dr. Winslow. Both my husband and I trusted him and felt that he took the right amount of time with us as patients. He never brushed us off, he took our questions & concerns seriously and he was very kind. I always felt that he truly cared for me as a patient...Through the process, I always felt that he was giving us the very best advice
This clinic is amazing at making you feel at ease. The nurses and staff are fun, kind and compassionate—everything they should be. But more importantly, the doctors are all at the top of their game. I felt like this clinic was committed to giving me the very best care. If you're at the FIRM, it's because you want a baby...Entire process for first round of embryo creation, freezing and transfer, about $18k total...I always felt that this was the team that would get us there.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If your meeting with him is only a few minutes long or the clinic takes a couple days to get back to you, don't take it personally. Dr. Winslow is at the top of his game and while they have A LOT of patients—he truly cares for you as an individual. I have several friends who have successfully had babies after severe infertility issues. He is absolutely the best. You may only get a few minutes, but Dr. Winslow cares.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow was amazing! He treated us with warmth and compassion. Infertility is full of uncertainties. There aren't any guarantees. Through the process, I always felt that he was giving us the very best advice—he is definitely an expert in his field. My old OBGYN used to minimize my concerns, brush me off and tell me to relax. In four years of seeing her, she never recommended the proper diagnostic treatments. Dr. Winslow was the polar opposite. While appointments aren't lengthy, I felt like our time with him was valuable. He listened, answered questions, took us seriously and got right to the bottom of our issues fast. I trusted that his plan was the right one for us.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: April)
April was our primary IVF nurse at the Tallahassee office. She was always positive and a joy to be around. She took the time to explain everything to us clearly, but she also treated us like humans. The whole staff at the FIRM is truly awesome—they're encouraging and compassionate. If there's any issue or oversight, they are quick to correct it and get you what you need. 100% dependable.

We struggled at our OBGYN to find a diagnosis for our infertility for about a year. Dr. Winslow found it in the first month. My husband actually has low sperm morphology...[he] suggested three to four rounds of medicated (Letrozole) IUI...[he] is a very blunt person. I know many couples can be sensitive when it comes to fertility treatments. This type of personality may not work for all couples
We use the Tallahassee office [of Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] because it is closest to us. It is easy to get to, has its own parking lot, and is small (which we like). The waiting room and the exam rooms are very nice and clean, but still cozy and welcoming. The receptionist is awesome! She is kind, organized, and thorough. She has filled out several grant requests for us and did it quickly and efficiently
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow is a very blunt person. I know many couples can be sensitive when it comes to fertility treatments. This type of personality may not work for all couples. However, my husband and I appreciate his bluntness. He is not going to sugarcoat anything for you, which I think is important so you don't develop false hope. He will answer any and all questions you may have as simply and to-the-point as he can.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Don't be afraid to ask questions. He may not give you a ton of information outright. I think he does this so not to overwhelm you. However, he will answer any question you throw at him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
The office I go to for my appointments is very small. I have never waited more than ten or so minutes to be seen. While in our appointments, my husband and I tend to ask many questions. We have never felt rushed or like we were bothering Dr. Winslow. He was always happy to answer any questions we had. He also takes the time to explain things to you in simple terms if you ask.
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We struggled at our OBGYN to find a diagnosis for our infertility for about a year. Dr. Winslow found it in the first month. My husband actually has low sperm morphology. Therefore, Dr. Winslow suggested three to four rounds of medicated (Letrozole) IUI. In our first round, I produced one egg, but the IUI was unsuccessful. Therefore, Dr. Winslow increased the dosage of the Letrozole. I'm in the midst of my second IUI cycle, but have produced two eggs this time. In both rounds, I received a trigger shot as well.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Linda Fricke)
Linda is amazing! She makes you feel so comfortable and welcome. She is very compassionate. She is eager to answer questions, and she tries to make information easy to understand. She remembers you as a patient and the smallest details you tell her.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
For a medicated IUI with a trigger shot, I believe the cost was close to $1,000. However, we were offered 20% off on our first round of IUI because it was canceled due to COVID-19. We received an IVF estimate from the clinic. They estimated $13,000 to the facility and high-balled the medicine estimate to be $5,000.

I felt like he [Dr. Kevin Winslow] treated me like a human. He was so matter of fact and no beating around the bush on what he wanted to do and what we were going to try. He seemed optimistic but didn’t over exaggerate chances for complications. His staff was so amazing they were all so upbeat and cheerful...When you walk In their doors though, you just feel so relaxed it gives you confidence in him and his team...
Nice new clean clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine]. I am very picky when it comes to doctors offices that are dusty and dirty. This office is immaculate lay clean and well taken care of. Their bathrooms are clean and sanitized...The girl [nurse at FIRM] who drew my blood and was in the room when I had dye injected in my tubes was so awesome she explained everything I was going to feel and even held my hand when my hubby couldn’t be in the room with me during the test

Unfortunately most insurance companies do not cover infertility treatments and it was very expensive for us. So much so, that we were only able to go to him for 3 visits. Approximately 400$ per visit

Dr. Winslow was extremely professional and you could tell he had been doing this for a while. He treated my husband and I with kindness but provided a realistic picture of what to expect. He doesn't "sugar coat" things.... I was on a higher dose of menupur and gonal f (dont remember the exact dosage) due to my low smh. Dr. Winslow encouraged us to do PGS testing which I think contributed greatly to our first transfer success.
Billing is a weakness as they [Fl Inst for Repro Med] take time to respond. It has improved since I began with the office in 2016. The organization of the clinic is a strength. It's like a well oiled machine. The appointment times made it easy for my husband and I who lived 2,hours away.... They never called me with uterine fibroid biopsy results. The information was provided as soon as I called.
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I had a wonderful experience as a patient of Dr. Winslow's. I didn't want someone to baby me, just wanted someone to get me a baby and he did just that. He was realistic and encouraging. He explained things in a way my husband and I could understand.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask questions and listen. He knows what he is doing and wants you to succeed.

Doctor Winslow is very candid and to the point. Which is great if you want the facts. However, as we were dealing with secondary infertility we were made to feel like IVF was going to be successful for us. ... but when he called me with the news that none of our embryos made it past day 5 he told us that our only hope going forward would be to use donor eggs or embryos. This news would have been better suited to a follow-up next steps consultation.
It is a very busy clinic [FL Ins Repro Med] and you do feel like a number. If you are someone that needs compassionate or delicate care then this might not be the right place for you. We did not have success with this clinic and we felt like we were left hanging after being told that we had no embryos to transfer. There was no follow up. Additionally about a week after getting this news I received a call from the genetic testing lab asking why FIRM had not sent anything to be tested.

Dr. Winslow is very professional, yet personable. He is understanding and willing to spend time with you to have you leave feeling fully content. He had a flexible schedule and truly wants to fulfill your specific wants/needs. I have dealt with two miscarriages while under the care of Dr. Winslow, and he couldn’t have dealt with such tough conversations better.
A huge strength is the flexibility of their schedule and office hours. I work 13 hour shifts which makes most appointment scheduling hectic. But, not with FIRM. They catered to every schedule need. I was also able to speak to my nurse directly any time of the day. ... They are upfront with their costs. So much so, that their cost sheet is posted on their website. Never any surprises. And occasionally a thrown in freebie!

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Two cycles of femara with trigger shot. First one, I got a BFP and miscarried just before six weeks. Second cycle, I got a BFP and miscarried just prior to 11 weeks. I was on progesterone suppositories and estradiol patches the second time around to prevent miscarriage due to lining issues. Turned out the embryo had a genetic problem that was diagnosed after genetic testing with my D&C.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Winslow educated us on the positives and negatives of transferring 1 embryo vs 2, he ultimately left it up to us to decide... takes his time to explain most thing pretty detailed, sometimes it requires prompting with questions, but I've never felt like he did not care about me or what was happening to my body. He shows some emotion and isn't like a robot when delivering good or bad news. Dr. Winslow calls personally with an update of how fertilization and embryo growth is looking after an egg retrieval. You can tell that he cares.
I have only had to be put on hold one time [at FIRM] I believe because their phones were really busy. The girls up front at great & show compassion as well. The only complaint I have as far as the clinics weakness would be whenever I am waiting on my HCG blood test results, it is always the end of the day before I am called. I always ask my lab to send them over ASAP (as it states on the lab order) but I haven't been called prior to 3:00 pm with these results yet, and anyone who has ever waited around on these results knows how much anxiety it brings with it.
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
From the from consultation, I've always liked Dr. Winslow. When first beginning, we did IUI and encouraged us to do multiple rounds but when he saw how devastated we were, he did not hesitate to encourage us and say that we can move on and explain the next steps (IVF). When beginning IVF, Dr. Winslow was very thorough and helped us to fully understand the medications & how to do injections. He even offered to draw a bulls-eye on me to show my husband where to insert the needle. After the egg retrieval, Dr. Winslow called me himself to let me know how many eggs were fertilized. He then called me a couple of days later to let me know that none of the fertilized eggs made it to 5day blasts. One thing I did not like when he called me was that he left me a voice message and delivered this devastating news that way. I understand that his time is valuable and this may would have been his only opportunity to deliver this information, but it was rough listening to it on a voicemail message (it would have been rough hearing it live from him also though too). We went back to Dr. Winslow for a post-ivf consult, he met with my husband and I in his office. Not one time did I feel rushed or like anyone did not care. Dr. Winslow showed true concern and listened to us and helped us through it all. During our second round of ivf we received the same great care as before, luckily this time it ended with better news. Dr. Winslow was just as excited as we were to hear how many eggs were retrieved and how many embryos we ended up with. When getting ready for our transfer, Dr. Winslow advised us on how many embryos he would recommend transferring but ultimately left it up to us whether to do 1 or 2. After receiving a positive pregnancy test, we went in at 6 weeks for our first ultrasound. This showed one strong perfect heartbeat and Dr. Winslow seemed just as thrilled and excited as we were and congratulated us. We returned the next week to confirm everything was looking good, sadly the heartbeat had stopped. Dr. Winslow took his time to look and show us to make sure he was correct, he was. I could tell that he hated delivering this news to us nearly as much as we hated hearing it. I never once felt like he did not care for us as his patients. Dr. Winslow thoroughly explains everything on the ultrasound screen as well as the treatment plan ahead. Dr. Winslow does seem to take a bit longer than usual to insert the ultrasound wand, I assume he is just not wanting to just "jab" it in. We are not complete with our treatment, we still have embryos left to transfer and plan on gearing up for our next one here soon, but I do not regret using Dr. Winslow!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Write down questions prior to appointments so you don't forget what to ask, in case he does not cover everything. And record consults and important conversations with your phone.

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
My first round of ivf for egg retrieval I began with 225 units or Gonal F & 2 vials of Menopur daily. On day 7 I began Cetrotide. On day 9, Dr. Winslow upped my Gonal F to 300 units and I stopped the Gonal F and Menopur on Day 10. I continued the Cetrotide through Day 12 and also did Lupron trigger shot in the PM of Day 12 & AM of Day 13 with the retrieval being on Day 14. This resulted in 6 eggs retrieved & 0 embryos. My second round of IVF for egg retrieval we started right out with 300 units of Gonal F & 2 vials of Menopur, we also added in 53 units of Human Growth Hormone. I began cetrotide on Day 7 again. This time, I continued the Gonal F, Menopur & HGH through day 12. on Day 13 PM and 14 AM I did the Lupron trigger shot with the retrieval being day 15. This resulted in 16 eggs retrieved & 10 embryos frozen. For my transfer, I began taking Endometrin about a week - 2 prior to transfer and I began Progesterone in oil every other day beginning the day before transfer. I continued 2 Endometrin inserted twice daily and Progesterone in oil every other day until we found out the heartbeat stopped (otherwise I would have continued it through week 12
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Patty)
Patty has been nothing but great to us! Patty shows genuine concern & compassion with whatever we are going through. when first getting ready to begin injections, Patty took her time to explain and demonstrate using the needles and syringes. She made sure we understood everything and assured that we could call after hours if we had any questions or concerns. Anytime i speak with Patty on the phone or pass her in the hallway at the office she takes time to ask me how I am doing, and I can tell she really cares & wants to know. I also feel like Patty always remembers my name and recognizes me (which I know can be hard when you see so many people every day). She is great!
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
Anytime I call, the phone is answered before the 2nd or third ring. I have only had to be put on hold one time I believe because their phones were really busy. The girls up front at great & show compassion as well. The only complaint I have as far as the clinics weakness would be whenever I am waiting on my HCG blood test results, it is always the end of the day before I am called. I always ask my lab to send them over ASAP (as it states on the lab order) but I haven't been called prior to 3:00 pm with these results yet, and anyone who has ever waited around on these results knows how much anxiety it brings with it. The clinic is open 7 days a week (though phones are off during the weekend, but you can be connected to a nurse if needed) so it is really nice to be able to make appointments on Saturday or Sunday if necessary. This clinic does not hesitate and always keeps the ball rolling!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I am 100% out of pocket, no insurance. All of their fees are listed on their website & are 100% accurate. We chose the single IVF cycle which has a fee of $6900 plus $800 for ICSI and $750 for cyropreservation. All medication, I bought separately through a pharmacy unless I needed some extra on a dy of a visit, then I was able to purchase a vial at the clinic.

Dr. Winslow is very knowledgeable, but bedside manners are not a thing that he possesses at all. He is so forward and straight to the point that it totally rubbed my husband the wrong way, and one time i had to have a conversation with him about backing off a little... I was on maximum doses for their office, which was 300 follistim, 150 menopur each cycle. He never switched it up, which sometimes gave me question, but i trusted that maximum dowsed was what my body needed.
The billing specialists [FIRM] sometimes take a while to get back to you, but they are nice. The front desk personnel have always been kind. The nurses begin to know you by name, which really shows their customer service commitment... The nurses were very nice, many of them had trouble drawing my blood, and there were only a few that could get it the first time around, but overall they were good... I had insurance for the first few treatments so I was quoted about 3,000 per cycle, not including medicine
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He is the head doctor of the FIRM, so he has a wealth of knowledge, and I trusted him in that area, and stuck with him because i wanted the best. But as far as bedside manners or compassion, that is not something he possesses, so if you need someone that will kindly walk you through your process and caringly address your needs, he isn’t the doctor for you.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If you want the most knowledgeable and experienced doctor in the practice and you don’t care about the delivery of information than Winslow is the best option. If you do care, and you need someone who can be patient and compassionate, he isn’t the doctor for you

Dr. Winslow is very knowledgeable, but bedside manners are not a thing that he possesses at all. He is so forward and straight to the point that it totally rubbed my husband the wrong way, and one time i had to have a conversation with him about backing off a little
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I was on maximum doses for their office, which was 300 follistim, 150 menopur each cycle. He never switched it up, which sometimes gave me question, but i trusted that maximum dowsed was what my body needed. The first time he had me on BC pills too long and i never made it to retrieval. The second time we did no BC, 2 eggs were retrieved 1 made it to transfer but didn’t stick. The third time I was on BC for only 2 wks, 7 eggs were retrieved, 6 mature and frozen, when thawed and fertilized 4 fertilized, But none made it to embryos and I had nothing to transfer

Dr. Kevin Winslow was very knowledgeable about the dreaded fertility experience and treatment options. He also was really straight forward and never sugar coated anything but also showed compassion to you and your situation. He was clear on the treatment and gave you good insight on what to expect. I felt very comfortable but sometimes would get overwhelmed and feel like I couldn’t and didn’t know what questions to ask!
The FIRM has several different locations to accommodate your location. The only issue is that Jacksonville is the only place for the fertility treatments. The Tallahassee location is super nice and very clean! The Jacksonville downtown was in a hospital setting but was still nice but a little older! The FIRM has many strengths but I think the most important for my experience is they all make you feel super comfortable and also are very hopeful for you and your process.

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
Dr. Winslow recommended as our first treatment using fertility medication along with IUI. We used clomid and then had IUI done. We did not get pregnant that month. After the failed IUI, Dr. winslow recommended doing another round of IUI with clomid. We used the clomid but didn’t do the IUI that month. We didn’t get pregnant that next month with timed intercourse. He also said that if male factor was present that we would need to do IVF or if 3 rounds of IUI didn’t work then IVF would be the best treatment.

The IUI procedure was 390.

The only thing that I had go wrong was the results of an analysis we had done. I was told it would take a week or so for the results to get back but it took longer and then had to call them to get the results. I felt like they weren’t important and having to call them to figure it out made it frustrating.

he [Dr. Winslow] encouraged us to move to ivf... He is very quick with his appointments but he doesn’t go in to a lot of detail. So it’s hard to get questions answered because he’s so quick. I always felt like there was more he could have explained, more reassurance he could have given. Generally speaking he knew who I was and information about me. I grew to learn that he doesn’t go in to details unless it’s necessary. He is a nice doctor and is very knowledgeable.
The nursing staff and ivf coordinator [at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine] were all very knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. They always answered all my questions and provided reassurance along the way...Each iui was around $800. Our ivf was around $12,000 including medications...The doctors do rotate so you don’t see the same doctor every time. We were always treated well and with care and compassion. Overall we had a great experience!
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
He’s a very nice and knowledgeable doctor. He does show compassion and treats each patient with respect and care. He doesn’t go in to a lot of details explaining things. He only explains what you need to know. He’s always on time, I never had to wait for him. He’s very quick with his appointments which is good but also hard to get questions answered.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Let him know ahead of time you have questions and just know if he’s short or doesn’t go in to a lot of detail he isn’t blowing you off. He only goes in to detail about what you really need to know. He doesn’t want you to worry about things you don’t need to worry about. He is very quick and it’s not him being short. He is just very concise in his appointments.

Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We started with two rounds of letrozole with TI. Our third round we saw a different doctor and he increased our dose to 7.5 mg and I ended up producing too many eggs so the cycle was cancelled. The next cycle we went back to the 5 mg dose and did our first iui and it didn’t work. The second iui we changed to clomid and it again resulted in a negative pregnancy test. Dr. Winslow explained usually if things are going to work, they would by now so he encouraged us to move to ivf. We did gonal-f and menopur and added in cetrotide. We triggered with Lupron and they retrieved 9 eggs. 2 fertilized, 2 went to blast to be frozen and we just transferred those two blastocysts and we are currently in the tww!

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The only issue I ever had was they never called me with my progesterone results during my second iui cycle. By the time I got the results my period was starting so it was pointless to try to add progesterone.

We loved our experience with Dr. Winslow. He is a straightforward person, but my husband and I are too, so we all meshed well. Bedside manner wasn't hugely important to me compared to knowledge of our situation and a plan of attack.... my AMH level came back .13, signaling to the doctors that I would be put on maximum dosages of the medication as I was would likely be a "poor responder."
I found this clinic to be very timely. Only a handful of times did I have to wait longer than expected.... The nursing staff at the FIRM is absolutely amazing. They cheer with you when the news is good and they are so disappointed when it isn't either. Since we are based in South Georgia, we had two primary nurses - one in Jacksonville (where the procedures happened) and one in Tallahassee (where we had our usual check up scans).

Bedside manner wasn't hugely important to me compared to knowledge of our situation and a plan of attack. I liked that he has a practical nature and a way of explaining things to us that was easy to understand. I would bring in questions to our appointments when I had them, and he always took the time to answer any of my concerns.

If you have questions, write them down and bring to your appointment. He will take the time to answer them!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
At the FIRM, I definitely felt like a human. Dr. Winslow never made me feel like a number; he knew our case and always gave us a practical plan. You always see a FIRM doctor at every appointment, even if Dr. Winslow was unavailable. The nursing staff is AMAZING. They know who you are and know you by name. They are quick to call back and talk through any concerns or questions.
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We came to the FIRM and Dr. Winslow after having a miscarriage and extremely irregular cycles post miscarriage. It had almost taken a year to become pregnant, so the blow was a hard one, and then not being able to time anything after was super frustrating. Dr. Winslow first suggested we try timed cycles with assisted with Letrozole. I had to be put on a higher dosage of Letrozole as I wasn't responding as much as he would have liked - we tried this for three cycles before moving onto IUI using Letrozole. This resulted in a negative test, but we wanted to try it one more time. At the egg follicle check before planning the second IUI appointment, we learned I had stopped responding to the Letrozole. This is when we decided to move forward with IVF. I was 32 at the time and my AMH level came back .13, signaling to the doctors that I would be put on maximum dosages of the medication as I was would likely be a "poor responder." It was the antagonist protocol, using Gonal F, menapur and centritide, triggered with HCG. I went for 12 days and the cycle resulted in 5 embryos. Two made it to the blastocyst stage, and we opted to PGS screen them. One came back abnormal and one came back no DNA detected, meaning they didn't get a good enough sample to make the call. Dr. Winslow called to give us the less-than thrilling news and said we could transfer the blank embryo or we should consider doing a second cycle if we wanted more than one child, but he stressed both options were a good decision. We opted to do a second cycle after much thought (and prayers). Same protocol, same maximum dosage, but triggered with a Lupron + HCG mix. I also went the full 14 days and added Vitamin D in addition to my prenatals. This resulted in 17 eggs, and 7 made it to the blast stage! We were thrilled - and shocked! 4 came back normal, one no DNA, and two abnormal. We transferred 1 and I am currently expecting.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Mandy in Jacksonville, Jamie in Tallahassee)
The nursing staff at the FIRM is absolutely amazing. They cheer with you when the news is good and they are so disappointed when it isn't either. Since we are based in South Georgia, we had two primary nurses - one in Jacksonville (where the procedures happened) and one in Tallahassee (where we had our usual check up scans). The head nurse Patty is so wonderful. They really take the time to explain everything to you and talk through any concerns or questions. After our second retrieval our sweet Tallahassee nurse Jamie called me to celebrate our 17 after she heard how it went! I cried leaving them the day of our last appointment.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I found this clinic to be very timely. Only a handful of times did I have to wait longer than expected. As a South Georgia patient having to commute, sometimes the weekend appointments to Jacksonville got tiring as it would monopolize the whole weekend. We had to cancel plans a few times because an early Sunday appointment would throw things for a loop. They would try and work with us as best they could, but if you are commuting, be prepared to be flexible.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
All in - including continuous travel to Jacksonville and Tallahaseee - we came in a bit over $40k for the two cycles, medication, PGS testing, embryo transfer, gas, hotel stay, etc. Because of my "poor responder" characteristic, this meant that I had to be on the max dosage of all medications and I was on them for a longer period of time. The medication expense what really added up for us. We got a tiny discount in medication but not much. Gonal F pens were about $800 a pop and I would go through 1 pen in 3 days, where as some women can extend that for 6. We hadn't planned on a second cycle, so our savings were about wiped out. It was worth it - but stressful.
Describe Kevin Winslow's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
We had been told for patients that opt to PGS screen, Dr. Winslow really prefers to only transfer 1 genetically normal embryo if the mother is under a certain age. We wanted to do whatever he thought was our best chance for success. He preferred us to do one. And it took!

Dr Winslow is clearly very knowledgeable in his field and can be quite blunt in his delivery, but I also found him to be compassionate and willing to personalize care...With each cycle, Dr Winslow learned from my responses and modifications were made. While I responded well, unfortunately I have not achieved a pregnancy, so we will be moving on to IVF...Make sure to have your questions ready to go for your visit - appointments can be brief, but when you do have questions, Dr. Winslow will take extra time.

Dr. Winslow is VERY knowledgeable in infertility. While he is direct, I appreciated that because I did not want to waste my time or his. I wanted to get to the root of the problem and figure out the best course of action and he did just that. There was no sugar coating anything, which I also appreciated. I wanted to know the real facts - not only are you investing your money but also time and your emotions and I wanted to know what would work best for me to become pregnant.
I never had any issues with the nursing staff [at FIRM] - all were compassionate, helpful, and informative. I had a breakdown after my fourth failed IUI and they were super comforting and made me feel better that the journey was NOT over! They were right!... They are compassionate and have the same goal as you - to get you pregnant! You are treated as a human and not a number. Everything is designed specifically for you and changed based on your response to the medicine which is not the same at other clinics. I have never waited more than 10 minutes to see the doctors.

I wanted to know the real facts - not only are you investing your money but also time and your emotions and I wanted to know what would work best for me to become pregnant. Dr. Winslow helped determine the cause of our infertility and because of that, we moved quickly. It was determined I had low AMH at 29 years old so time was of the essence. I am so glad I went to FIRM and saw Dr. Winslow - I would not change a thing!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
If you are looking for someone who is not blunt and direct, choose another doctor within FIRM - all of the Doctors are FANTASTIC. Come prepared with questions - he is more than happy to answer any question you have!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I never felt like a number with FIRM. Dr. Winslow made sure the plan of action was created specifically for me and my response to medicine. There was no timeline stating you must have your egg retrieval on this date or you must transfer on this date - it was based on how I was responding and very fluid which I believe helped in the success of having a pregnancy.
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We decided to start with IUI. Dr. Winslow suggested moving on to IVF if three IUI's were unsuccessful. I did my first two IUI's with Clomid and my second two with Letrozole. During this process is when my husband's sperm count dropped for no apparent reason. We attempted a fourth IUI, but it was canceled due to low counts. Obviously, this was out of our control. We moved to IVF. I was on 225iu of Gonal-F and 150iu of Menopur. I stimmed for 9 days (added Cetrotide after 4 or 5). I had my egg retrieval where they retrieved 21 eggs, 14 were fertilized using ICSI, and 10 made it to freeze and were sent off for PGS testing. Of those, 6 came back normal. I transferred one 5AA and it worked!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I never had any issues with the nursing staff - all were compassionate, helpful, and informative. I had a breakdown after my fourth failed IUI and they were super comforting and made me feel better that the journey was NOT over! They were right!
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
I would never go anywhere else other than FIRM. I absolutely loved the doctors (I have seen each doctor there) and the rest of the staff. They are compassionate and have the same goal as you - to get you pregnant! You are treated as a human and not a number. Everything is designed specifically for you and changed based on your response to the medicine which is not the same at other clinics. I have never waited more than 10 minutes to see the doctors.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
Dr. Winslow is a great doctor. He cares about his patients and demonstrates this at every appointment. Throughout the course of my treatment Dr. Winslow was the only doctor I was seen by, even if my appointment fell on a weekend. He has always been accommodating and understanding about my busy work schedule. During every appointment Dr. Winslow would ask how I felt or if I had noticed a different reaction to the medication. This helped me feel like I wasn't just another patient. I do think his bedside manner is different. He does not sugar coat information nor does he dwell on bad news. His character is definitely different; however I have learned to very much appreciate his sincerity and his sense of humor.
The nursing staff here [FL Institute for Reproductive Medicine] are amazing. They are compassionate and understanding of how painful fertility treatments can be. All blood work was completed by nurses but my appointments were always conducted by Dr. Winslow. The nurses were great at explaining medicine administration and timing when starting a new protocol.... This clinic has several sites. I attend the one in downtown Jacksonville, which is inside Baptist Health hospital. It is a beautiful clinic with a roomy waiting area full of comfy couches. It is always clean and quiet.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Ask a lot of questions. Dr. Winslow will answer any question you have; however, he will not ask questions for you. You have to do your research and bring up the topic if you want to know more about it. I would advise others to not be quick to judge his demeanor. He is a sweet person and he cares.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow asked at the end of all appointments if I had any questions about the plan for medications, this made me feel like he was interested in how I felt not just being another patient at the clinic.

I never met Dr. Winslow. I only talked to him on the phone. He was supposed to be my doctor and did all of the perscrbing, ect. When we went to Florida I always met with a different doctor. I am not sure what else to say. I never met the man. I only talked to him on the phone one a couple of different occasions.... On our second transfer we were told by doctor Winslow that the embryos would be allowed to develop and then transferred on day 5. When we talked to the other doctor and the nurse we were told that the transfer would take place on day 3 instead.
The embryo transfer [at FL Institute for Reproductive Med] was interesting. I was able to watch the transfer of the fluid containing the embryos on the ultrasound, but was never shown the actual embryos in a photo or on a monitor linked to the microscope like I had been shown at another clinic. They didn't allow my husband to be with me.during either embryo transfer.

Dr. Winslow is warm but very factual and doesn't mince words. You have to be prepared for that. They see a lot of patients so you also have to be ready to be seen by several doctors in his practice. They were all wonderful.... I traveled to Florida to be treated in his clinic. He was charming, direct, realistic, etc. I went to see him three times and he remembered me well, and treated me like I wasn't an impossible case, but was also clear about the biological reality of getting pregnant at 40.
The last time I was at the clinic [Florida Institute for Reproductive Med], the décor wasn't particularly inviting and the front desk staff kept their space closed off from the waiting room. That was the only weakness. Their strengths are many. They are willing to work with out of state patients and OBGYNs to monitor the stimulation. The nurse coordinator also provides clear information on what is needed and where to get cheaper medication.
How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow was very warm with me. I came from out of town and he remembered that every time I saw him it was storming in Jacksonville so he joked with me about that. He was very flexible about the schedule, as he was working with my local OBGYN to monitor my response to the injections. We had to change the schedule of my trip and go to a different location in his practice (Jacksonville Beaches office) because I got ahead of schedule. He introduced me to other doctors in his practice that were also involved in my treatment. I had two IVF with egg retrievals done in his clinic. These were three transfers. After the third one, I got pregnant and had a healthy daughter. I recommended them to a friend, and she also got pregnant and had a healthy son. We both recommend the clinic blindly to anyone.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
I went to see Dr. Winslow after having a bad experience with a local RE. I traveled to Florida to be treated in his clinic. He was charming, direct, realistic, etc. I went to see him three times and he remembered me well, and treated me like I wasn't an impossible case, but was also clear about the biological reality of getting pregnant at 40. He could joke around a bit, and put me at ease. He knew exactly what he wanted to do with me.
Describe the protocols Kevin Winslow used in your cycles at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
I did one IVF with a local RE and Dr. Winslow had that as a reference when he started my treatment. He increased the dosage of Menopur and gave me Bravelle rather than Folistim. He had me on progesterone injections daily after transfer as well. During the second IVF, he adjusted the doses of Menopur and Bravelle, since my ovaries were stimulated rather quickly during the first IVF. It worked and I conceived after the first transfer in the second IVF. He had me in progesterone injections and then Crinone until the placenta was producing its own progesterone.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
All nurses were very nice and personable. They were all very professional. The Nurse Anesthetist in particular was wonderful. They had great bedside manner and great medical skills as well.
Describe your experience with Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The last time I was at the clinic, the décor wasn't particularly inviting and the front desk staff kept their space closed off from the waiting room. That was the only weakness. Their strengths are many. They are willing to work with out of state patients and OBGYNs to monitor the stimulation. The nurse coordinator also provides clear information on what is needed and where to get cheaper medication. When different REs have to take care of different parts of the process, they always came well informed about the particulars of my case. The nurses were always caring and willing to work with the patients when there were issues.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
IVF cost about $8000, including ICSI. The clinic gives you a discounted rate for second and third IVFs. My second IVF was approximately $7200. None of these rates include medication.
Describe Kevin Winslow's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine.
The doctor was clear in the risk of transferring multiple embryos. However, he took into consideration my history when deciding on how many embryos to transfer and ultimately we decided together to transfer more than one.

How was your experience with Kevin Winslow at Florida Institute for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr. Winslow is obviously smart and trusted in his field. But details were not as readily given and I found myself doing lots of research on my own. I'm a confident, educated person but occasionally found myself feeling apprehensive to ask questions because I felt like a bother. Dr. Winslow seemed to push for IVF immediately and reluctantly did two IUIs at our request. There was preliminary testing for my husband and I, that's it. Only after switching doctors did we get more information into me possibly having PCOS combined with male factor infertility.
