Dr. Coward wanted to do a surgery to fix some varicose veins that could be causing infertility. It would take about a year to see results, and he felt strongly that we would see an increase in our numbers and quality of sperm. We decided that we wanted to do IVF before the surgery, and Dr. Coward was supportive of our decision.... He spent about 2 hours with us during a consult meeting, and laid out all of our options for us. He personally sent us an email, on a Sunday with our results, and is quick to respond to any questions we have for him.

I trust Dr. Coward. He’s knowledgeable, helpful, and encouraging. He’s also honest about whether or not he thinks a course of treatment will end up being successful.... I was a participant in a fertility study during which I received three rounds of Clomid, Novarel, and IUI. It wasn’t until we were in our second cycle that Dr. Coward had to explain to my partner and me that we had male factor as well, because my husband’s numbers were very low. He suggested a course of action for us and gave us facts for our chances of success with the IUI moving forward.
