Dr. Shoemaker does an excellent job of making you feel comfortable, of adequately explaining procedures and results, and of remaining optimistic. One down side is you do not always see him since he is so busy.... I took ovidrel for one month until they determined I had a tubal blockage. He then referred me to another more specialized fertility doctor
The nursing staff [at Thomas Hospital Shoemaker] was kind and caring. They went out of their way to make sure I felt comfortable. They always returned calls in a timely manner and always took the time to answer my questions, etc.... The clinic was very organized regarding billing, prescriptions, scheduling, etc. They also were very willing to work with my complicated schedule.

Within 24 hours I had been properly diagnosed with PCOS, my medication changed and had a new course of treatment for my next cycle.
Dr. Shoemaker and his office staff [m]ade each step in the process comfortable. Be patient. He's very busy. For good reason. He's the best. :)
How was your experience with Marshall Shoemaker at Shoemaker OB-Gyn?
My husband and I had been seeing another local doctor for fertility issues for about 2 years before we became a patient of Dr. Showmaker's. He took the time to listen to our history, fears and concerns before he did an examination and full blood work. Within 24 hours I had been properly diagnosed with PCOS, my medication changed and had a new course of treatment for my next cycle. I had one complete cycle on the new plan and by my next cycle I was pregnant.
