Dr Ryan was personable and sympathetic when I managed to get appointments with her, but there was almost no contact with her in general. She has the clinic staff manage 95% of the communication and questions, does not discuss results or plans herself, doesn't explain things in detail, and is hard to get an appointment with...She didn't explain my diagnosis in depth or offer much literature on my condition. On the plus side, she was helpful in recommending additional resources such as counselors when I did see her...
[nursing staff at University Reproductive Car] Helpful, but a little chaotic. I often received contradictory information, lack of explanations, and occasionally instructions that were clearly counter to my plan...as part of the UW system I have found this clinic's billing process to be mostly easy and correct, and the communication via e-care is quite easy...
How was your experience with Ginny Ryan-Buresh at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Lack of communication and lack of detailed explanations were the biggest drawback. I often felt that Dr Ryan was not involved in treatment decisions, and if she was, it was only behind the scenes. She didn't explain my diagnosis in depth or offer much literature on my condition. On the plus side, she was helpful in recommending additional resources such as counselors when I did see her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ginny Ryan-Buresh at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Be proactive in scheduling appointments, as you will not hear from her or speak to her otherwise.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.

Describe your experience with University Reproductive Care - University of Washington.
Strength - as part of the UW system I have found this clinic's billing process to be mostly easy and correct, and the communication via e-care is quite easy. Weakness - Little interaction with my doctor, and, until I asked to be assigned to a consistent nurse, questions answered by various random staff members who mostly did not know my history. (This improves quite a bit if you are assigned a consistent team)
What specific things went wrong at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?

[University Reproductive Care - University of Washington] has administrative issues. Hard to schedule. Does not answer the phone. Long wait times. Shares a waiting room with a male clinic. Double charged me for a self pay cycle and then also billed my insurance...nursing staff are overworked and hard to reach.
How was your experience with Ginny Ryan-Buresh at University Reproductive Care - University of Washington?
Dr. Ryan is cold and rude. She wanted to quickly get through my visit and get to the next case. She didn’t take time to listen or answer questions. Dr. Ryan did not explain procedures or next steps. When I asked for clarification, she would interrupt and move on. When I had side effects from the medications, I was ignored which inevitable cost me a cycle. She responded to messages up to a week later and sometimes not at all. She did not involve me in making choices about my health. When I had concerns, she told me she wasn’t able to help as she was busy with other patients.

Do not work with her. Work with someone who is trustworthy and caring. Don’t put the life of your baby in her hands.
