Unsuccessful
He [Dr. Redding] always answered my questions. He really cared and explained everything. His staff was awesome and very helpful. He explained all e risks as well. He always explained and did a great job with my surgery. He has a calm relaxed, but straight forward approach. I think you have to understand being a military facility he is limited in options but felt he did a good job with what tools he has to work with... One doctor that was covering recommend 6 iuis, but Dr Redding said 4 was better.
[Naval Medical Center] Not good on answering questions after hours but you can go to the hospital if needed. Staff is knowledgeable and kind. Very helpful and encouraging. Wish they did ivf. They can do iui but not with injectables. I would say major con is the limited options or adjustments they can offer, but major pro is the service is covered all by Tricare except semen wash, which was $240.00... They were all great although not available on weekends. They normally called back within 24 hours.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Redding has been the absolute best doctor during my treatment. He has listened to every concern and addressed them each separately. He gives you all the ins and outs of the testing, fertility medication, and possible side effects involved...He listens to every concern and question I have. At my last appointment we spent 20 minutes just talking about all of my options and the my last 6 months of treatment... We started with ultrasounds to confirm if i was ovulating on my own or not. This is how we found my PCOS
The Naval Hospital is huge and accommodates a lot of patients daily so you may not get an immediate appointment, but you will not be upset with the care you receive. I have had nothing but great appointments with the reproductive team... Due to have military insurance all of my treatment has been covered. I will have to pay out of pocket for IUI and/or IVF... [Nursing Staff] Just as wonderful as Dr. Redding... Dr. Redding has been the absolute best doctor during my treatment. He has listened to every concern

Describe the protocols Shawn Redding used in your cycles at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth and their degree of success.
We started with ultrasounds to confirm if i was ovulating on my own or not. This is how we found my PCOS as I have an abnormal amount of cysts on my ovaries. From there we did an hsg exam which confirmed my tubes are clear so we stated 6 months of Femara with timed intercourse. After my 6 months had passed with no pregnancy we are now into the next step of Femara with trigger shot and IUI
