He is not very warm and friendly, he more or less, he just does the procedure. ... I don't always get to see Dr scheken [Schenken] when I have my appointments. ... I sometimes feel left out of the decision process with my treatment as he will just call in a prescription or have the nurse call me with what he wants to do. ... It has gone from letrozole to clomid and now the dosages increase each time. I usually call and ask for treatments that I want to pursue
They [UT Medicine Fertility Center] are very organized and quick. They have a lot of availability and will work with you to make appointments and procedures work with your availability. I also like that the gyno is attached which makes it even easier ... The nursing staff is amazing, efficient, and compassionate ... Ultrasounds are expensive, $75 or more. IUI was $150 each
