Although his nurses and nurse practitioner do a lot of procedures, he [Dr. Michael Doody] is still very involved in the process. He also recognized that my husband was part of this process as well. My husband is also seen and thought of as a patient even though he’s not being tested as much as I am. I would recommend him to anyone struggling with infertility...very helpful and have communicated throughly. I feel valued when I am in his office.

Describe the protocols Michael Doody used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville and their degree of success.
Dr. Doody used my records from my previous doctor to begin my treatment plan at his office. He throroughly reviewed my blood work and determined it needed to be redone because it was done incorrectly. I feel confident that he explored all of my records to find the best place to start. He gave me the option for IUI instead of telling me that was where we were starting. I felt like I had a voice for once. He had been incredible!

We went through three IUIs without ever seeing him again. When our IUIs were ineffective there was no meeting with Dr doody to possibly think about other treatments.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
When you initially meet with Dr Doody and his nurses request that the doctor and nurses take the time to fully explain procedures to you. Let them know that you don't want to be handled as just a number.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
The people at the front desk were friendly. The nurses, on the other hand, really rushed us through treatment. There were a few who seemed to be annoyed at our questions. We really had to pry for answers and explanations. Often times our concerns were met with skepticism or silence.
Describe the protocols Michael Doody used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville and their degree of success.
We began our first IUI with both of us on Clomid. Our second IUI had me on Clomid and my wife with an injectable. Our 3rd IUI was the same as the second. We never had a pregnancy. We essentially chose our own treatment. There was no optimizing or suggestions from the doctor or his nurses.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff where my least favorite part of doctor duties office. As I said before, the front desk staff were mostly friendly and helpful. The back of the house staff were non-communicative and not compassionate.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville.
The clinic is in Farragut. It is clean. The equipment is quite old. Ancient. We were very disappointed with the machines and tests that were used at this Clinic. With all the money going into these procedures I'm not quite sure why better equipment has not been purchased to date.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville.
Cost for drugs, tests, and treatment are pretty on par for what they are around most of the country. We did have some issues getting our Diagnostics labeled as such through our insurance. This meant that we ended up paying more than I believe we should have.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
Trust him. If he says wait two months after a miscarriage before trying again.. if he says I think “this” would be best. Trust his knowledge and judgement.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
Dr. Doody always had our best interest in mind. He talked with us for two hours during our consultation and got to know us so well. He done my laparoscopy and diagnosed me with endometriosis, which he took care of during surgery. He was there when we had our miscarriage and him and his staff was so kind to us during the whole process. He truly has blessed our family. Even though we haven’t been able to carry out a full pregnancy, he still helped us gain the angel baby we have now in heaven.
Describe the protocols Michael Doody used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville and their degree of success.
We took clomid and femara. Femara on day 3-7 of the cycle. Then on day 13, we went in for an ultrasound to see if our follicles were ready. That night we would do a trigger shot and 36 hours later we would go in for our IUI. One week from our IUI, I would go for a progesterone bloodwork test to see if I ovulated. Then we would wait one more week before testing for Pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville. (Assigned nurse: Andrea )
They knew us by name. We didn’t even have to sign in. They got to know our lives. They asked about our son, our lives, how we were doing and they just cared for us.

How was your experience with Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
At the first visit it was obvious Dr Doody wanted to help us. We sat in his office and he asked about our detailed history. He laid out a plan for us and seemed hopeful. As our treatments went on and nothing was working, it seemed he got a little less interested. I felt myself having to take more control of my healthcare.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?
Do your research and each treatment and don't be afraid to ask questions. We sort of just "went along" with what he suggested, instead of researching.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville?

Describe the protocols Michael Doody used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville and their degree of success.
I had laparoscopic surgery to clean out my endometriosis. I then did 2 natural cycles before moving on to 50mg clomid for 3 cycles. We did clomid with IUI once and then HMG injections with trigger shot for 3 cycles. We didn't ask for a rationale on the type of injectables we did.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There were 2 main nurses that I had interaction with. They were nice and did their jobs well, but I sometimes felt they lacked compassion. They were very quick to return my calls, which I appreciated.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville.
Dr Doody won't do your initial pelvic exam or ultrasound. In fact, the only time we saw him was when we were talking. His nurse practitioner did the initial pelvic exam and all of my ultrasounds. His nurses did my IUI's. At the time I didn't realize that wasn't the norm, but now after seeing another RE, I know that's not how I want my fertility care be handled. The front staff was wonderful and always smiling. The nurses in the lab were also nice, but again I felt like I was on a conveyor belt. There was not real personal connection, and at one point I saw them 3-4 times per week.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Michael Doody at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville.
My out of pocket surgery cost was about $3,000, with insurance paying anything over that. My clomid cycles were about $200 each. That covered the clomid and progesterone blood work. My clomid with IUI was about $1,000, and my injectable IUI cycles were almost $2,500. My insurance paid for some of my infertility testing, but none of the treatments, so all of that was out of pocket.

He prayed with me before my surgeries and procedures and made sure I understood exactly what was going on.... I had a laparoscopic surgery to look at my ovaries and uterus. He found endometriosis and very cystic ovaries. I took 6 rounds of clomid staring at 50mg going up to 250mg with cycle day 13 ultrasounds, never ovulating.

I felt dr doody was very smart and trustworthy. Although I didn’t feel like he “knew” me when I was in the office. I trusted his approach still though. The nurses and other staff are kind as well. I did feel like my treatment had lots of stand still time and after moving on to a new dr I felt some time was wasted on a treatment that had a low percentage of working.... I had several 5-9 medicated rounds for iui. I only have one tube so many months went without an iui due to best follicles being on the side with no tube. I took several rounds of clomid, up to 200 mg, and some rounds of femara up to 10mg. Progesterone was always below 18 on day 21 showing I wasn’t responding very well to the medicines. Never resulted in pregnancy.

He [Dr. Michael Doody] is amazing! He truly cares about his patients. He is very considerate of your feelings while still being straight forward with information.

Describe the protocols Michael Doody used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine of Knoxville and their degree of success.
Right before our first IUI appointment, my husband and I got our call that we had been matched with our son. At that time, we chose to forgo any treatments and focus on the adoption. Four short months after he was born we found out I was pregnant with our daughter with no treatments other than taking metformin. I went back to him about a year ago hoping to get pregnant with a third child. We got pregnant without any meds other than metformin again, but suffered a miscarriage. We haven’t had any positive results since, but we are just taking a natural route.

I only saw Dr Doody a couple times and was always handled by the RN. Appointments seemed rushed and not sufficient explanations. ... Dr Doody did a laparascopy on me and started me on clomid. ... He was a very compassionate Dr but never diagnosed my PCOS or endometriosis which it turns out I have both so that would explain my infertility. We ended up pregnant on a cycle they explained I did not ovulate on but it ended in a miscarriage. He was an average Dr with a huge patient load.
