He [Dr. Richard Legro] also makes you feel comfortable and ensures you know what is expected. Also, very open to questions and making sure you understand every thing.... Baseline appt and blood work, hsg to ensure tubes were clear and unblocked prior to starting pill cycles, started with 1 pill and it didn't work cycle 1 so dosage was increased to 2 pill and that was working (I was ovulating).
The clinic [Hershey Medical Center] is a large office with several doctors to choose from. Which I see as a strength as this allows you to schedule an appointment that is not months and months in the future. I felt like the clinic was state of the art and had advanced equipment and technology. You are able to view what your doctor is seeing on a big screen on the wall during your exams. They appeared to run on scheddule most times with little delays.

He had previously done a dermoid cyst removal surgery for me in the past and i had a great experience with him then so i felt comfortable when I had to go back under his care for fertility treatments.
