Unsuccessful
I expected to discuss my medical history and concerns but Dr. Putman did not request any information. Unfortunately he immediately started talking about costs and asked me if I was uncomfortable...He also directed me to speak to his practice manager about finances as if I am unable to pay for fertility treatment..
I only came in for a consultation. It was easy to request an appointment [at Fertility Center of Dallas] . The clinic seemed organized and the staff were nice. However, since I did not receive treatment, I do not have an overall opinion of the nurses or the clinic as I’ve only visited once...I requested a consultation to discuss possible fertility testing and treatment. However, Dr. Putman only discussed costs and assumed I could not afford treatment
How was your experience with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
I had a terrible experience during my consultation. I requested a consultation to discuss possible fertility testing and treatment. However, Dr. Putman only discussed costs and assumed I could not afford treatment. I ended the consult and felt humiliated.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
I urge you to find another doctor that values all patients regardless of race.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Michael Putman at Fertility Center of Dallas?
I came to the Fertility Center of Dallas for a consultation as my husband and I have been trying to conceive for a year. Dr. Putman was very rude and condescending. I expected to discuss my medical history and concerns but Dr. Putman did not request any information. Unfortunately he immediately started talking about costs and asked me if I was uncomfortable. He also directed me to speak to his practice manager about finances as if I am unable to pay for fertility treatment. It was a terrible experience during an already emotional time.

Dr. Putman didn’t waist any time getting diagnostics started. Testing was started on day 1 of initial consultation...is “on it”. The first day he met with us he had a plan. Testing began and treatment plan initiated. That really put my husband and I at ease as no other Dr had ever done any testing for us. He really explained his suggested plan and also gave other options in case we wanted to try another route of treatment...there is a lot of information coming at you on day 1 and can be a little overwhelming.
Clinic [Fertility Center of Dallas] is friendly. They are quick to return missed calls and messages. They have early morning appointments which is great for people that work. You get in at your scheduled appointment time. They don’t make you wait like some clinics do... Dr. Putman didn’t waist any time getting diagnostics started.

Right after my 2nd transfer during the holidays he was available on his emergency line to answer a question about my medication...Dr Putman didn't seem irritated that I interrupted his personal time and he was very familiar with our situation... ordered alot of diagnostic testing to include HSG xray. He also did alot tests through blood work for both me and my husband. Dr Putnam did my egg retrieval and 2 transfers...
What wasn't very clear from the start [at Fertility Center of Dallas] was how much medication would cost...The clinic as a whole is very attentive to you as a person. Only advice I would give to a new patient is to just take it one step at a time. During my egg retrieval and transfers we got a calendar and I took it as written in stone (planned leave for work, family events, etc) just be flexible...We were always greeted by name. Dr and nurses all were knowledgeable about our situation and goals.
