I felt like every appointment I was rushed in and rushed out. His fellow did most of the work and the talking. Dr Thomas didnt even do the ultrasounds or the IUIs... Hes blunt, does not give very good instruction, does not up or change medications when a failed cycle has happened...Letrozle 5mg for 5 days Trigger shot Metformin Prenatal Oh and to lose 40% of my body weight and that would help... knows his stuff the best from what I heard but he doesn't perform his visits.
Strength [at UC Health Center for Reproductive Health]- fits you in when needed. Dr Thomas responds quickly to calls. Knowing their facts and being the "best" around. Weakness- cleanliness, communication skills - allowing paitents and SO to ask questions without feeling like a stupid person. Checking temp, BP, weight and urine before every appointment should happen...She [nurse] always seemed rushed. To get back to the room. My BP and weight were rarely taken. Then my husband and i were never really given instructions on what room . Just a pointed finger.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I enjoy having [Dr. Michael Thomas] as my doctor and believe that he genuinely cares and is very knowledgeable. He is able to relay the necessary information to me in a way that I understand and I feel like he is very thorough...I had a laparoscopy to remove a uterine polyp and septum. After I healed from that I went back for a consult and began four months is clomid and timed intercourse as a first step. This will be my fourth month on the clomid and I believe the next step will be IUI.
The clinic [UC Health Center for Reproductive Health] strength is definitely the knowledgeable and compassionate team. Another positive is that there are different locations. I would say organization can be a weakness...I enjoy having Dr. Thomas as my doctor and believe that he genuinely cares and is very knowledgeable.
