Dr. Browne is very science based but still takes her time to explain things. She is also kind and warm.... Dr. Browne is exactly what I needed as a patient. My first meeting with her I told her I needed someone knowledgeable, truthful but also warm and fuzzy. She is all of that. She allows you to try when you want to and never pressured or pushed me into IVF before trying other methods first.... Clomid 50mg- Two Times for IUI negative test Clomid 100mg- chemical pregnancy Clomid 50 mg and Gonal F 75IUs- negative test Starting IVF this cycle
Mornings are hectic and the phlebotomists could be a little nicer. The front desk staff always greets you and will wish you a good luck on your way out! Very clean and comfortable waiting room. The sonographers are also excellent and always explain what they are doing and seeing. Overall I have truly loved my treatment at Shady Grove!... Patrice always gets back you in a timely matter and understands women being anxious, scared or confused. She is truly the best!

I want the IUI procedure to be done by Dr.Browne.. she takes interest in doing the right way! My first 2 IUI’s were performed by a nurse in Fairfax hospital as my dates were on a weekend. The nurse did not care as much as Dr. Browne did. Dr. Browne was very specific to get it right. I could literally see the compassion between a nurse practitioner and Dr. Browne. I feel all my pain has gone waste for my 1st 2 IUI’s.
Nurse practitioner [at Shady Grove] is not doing a good job. I prefer IUI procedure to be done by Dr and not a nurse. I could see the difference how Dr performed the IUI. Nurse practitioner doesn’t do it well. I go through so much pain and at the end.. IUI is performed by Nurse. Dr. Was so keen on doing it right, my Dr. took time until she felt she’s doing it right. Nurse practitioner was just doing it for the sake of her job.
