She's very thorough I really appreciate a doctor who is. She is also honest, positive, and optimistic. She also listens to her patients!... Dr. Budrys performed a saline infusion hysterography to check all my parts. She also ran other important tests prior to the laid out treatment plan. She first started me on Clomid with an hcg trigger shot.... She was ontop of everything and laid out a very detailed plan. She also listens to her patients!

How was your experience with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
I like that her and Dr. Strickler have an open line of communication. Also love the fact that it's through my preferred hospital. I went to her after our third loss. She was ontop of everything and laid out a very detailed plan. She also listens to her patients!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
Be open with her! She'll listen and adjust things on a personal level.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?

Describe the protocols Nicole Budrys used in your cycles at Henry Ford Medical Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Budrys performed a saline infusion hysterography to check all my parts. She also ran other important tests prior to the laid out treatment plan. She first started me on Clomid with an hcg trigger shot. My ovaries responded well and unfortunately we did not get pregnant. Then we did a second round with same results. I then requested to be switched to femara. That cycle was a bust since I had ovulated early on my own. Then I had a leftover cyst from the previous cycle. Every cycle I was monitored closely and given instructions. Every cycle I did produce mature follicles. I think timing was off maybe. With all that id continue with them as I like them and they know my history.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff are incredibly nice and sensitive to all of our needs. Very helpful and understanding!
Describe your experience with Henry Ford Medical Center.
My only thing is I wish they had more locations. It is a far drive for me. Also I had noticed that when I asked to be on Femara they had thought I already was. I was on Clomid actually. Just better communication between staff.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center.
As having recurrent losses they're able to Bill it accordingly. The only costs I encountered we're medications not covered by my insurance. Which was the ovidrel hcg trigger shot. The staff there know how to Bill it right.

Dr. Budrys gave us a diagnosis without all of the proper testing. We received an MFI diagnosis without a full workup on my husband. She was reluctant to give him a recommendation to see the reproductive urologist she worked with so we could give him a full exam. She made her diagnosis off of one semen analysis. She also did not do complete testing on me. She recommended IVF right away for us, without giving us all the information.

How was your experience with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
Dr. Budrys gave us a diagnosis without all of the proper testing. We received an MFI diagnosis without a full workup on my husband. She was reluctant to give him a recommendation to see the reproductive urologist she worked with so we could give him a full exam. She made her diagnosis off of one semen analysis. She also did not do complete testing on me. She recommended IVF right away for us, without giving us all the information. We wound up seeking a second opinion, as Dr. Budrys was not communicative when we would not agree on the spot to IVF. I'm glad we sought the 2nd opinion, because it turned out we could easily treat my husband's condition. And the 2nd doctor we saw completed all the tests that SHOULD have been done with me, and we found some major issues that would have made IVF difficult if we had not found out before. We were given and IVF w/ ICSI option with our second doctor, after getting some other issues in check with our second doctor. I was not at all comfortable with Dr. Budrys and felt like we were a money making opportunity with her. She didn't seem to like, or seemed off put, when we asked questions, or wanted her to dive a little bit more into her reasoning so we could fully understand our situation. I know there are a couple of positive reviews for her on here, but that was far from our experience with her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
Do your research, make sure you have all of the information before making a decision, and don't feel pressured to make an on the spot decision. Do your research on all of the testing that is usually done for a standard fertility work up, and listen to your gut. I knew she wasn't doing tests that seemed like they should have been done to get a complete baseline. I'm glad I listened to my instincts.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center?
Dr. Budrys spent very little time with us at the appointments we had with her. When she gave us our diagnosis, she asked for money up front, and got upset when we wanted to think about our treatment decision before spending $10,000+ dollars.
Describe the protocols Nicole Budrys used in your cycles at Henry Ford Medical Center and their degree of success.
I do not recommend the IVF protocol she outlined for us. The decision was made without full testing on me & my husband.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was so-so. They could have used a lot more communication. I would get calls last minute for blood work before a test or procedure, and not be able to get there in time. For example, calling me the afternoon before my 8:00 AM HSG telling me I needed a blood pregnancy test, when the nearest lab to my office was 45 minutes away, and I was travelling for work that day. And I had already done a blood pregnancy test 7 days prior. The nursing staff didn't seem fully prepared when I saw them for some procedures. Dr. Budrys was overseeing a nurse doing my HSG, and the nurse did not seem well trained on the procedure and I definitely felt like a "practice" patient.
Describe your experience with Henry Ford Medical Center.
There wasn't much communication with the clinic honestly. They weren't overly communicative, but weren't terrible either. It was tough to get basic information at times though. There didn't seem to be much support staff at the clinic if we had follow up questions or needed to call. We dealt with a couple of nurses and Dr. Budrys herself. I wish they would have had more basic information available to us up front about procedures, costs, etc.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Nicole Budrys at Henry Ford Medical Center.
We spent probably around $1,000 out of pocket for the testing she did do. She quoted us between $10-$20,000 for the IVF Cycle we decided not to pursue with her.
