Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
Dr. Parry believes in a low technology, low cost approach to fertility issues, so we decided to start with IUI since I didn't have any obvious complicating factors. He prescribed 7.5 mg Letrozole on CD 2-7 before using his Parryscope diagnostic technique to see if there were any underlying issues. During the transvaginal ultrasound, he found a good number of eggs, but the Parryscope revealed that I had cervical polyps and my tubes were blocked. I was scheduled for a polypectomy and an attempt to open my tubes, which was successful on the left side. We then proceeded to IUI treatments. I purchased a package of three IUI attempts with three ultrasounds for $1200, which was very affordable. I had my first IUI in March, which resulted in a negative pregnancy test, but I was prepared for that result. I decided to take April off to re-assess a few things, and this was totally ok with the clinic. I felt no pressure to continue or to discontinue my IUI attempts. I am on track for a second IUI in early May.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Positive Steps Fertility.

What specific things went wrong at Positive Steps Fertility?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Positive Steps Fertility.
When choosing donor sperm, I had a question about washed vs unwashed. The first nurse I spoke to on the phone told me either was fine because they wash unwashed specimen there at the clinic. The next time I got a call from the clinic, I spoke with a different nurse, and in trying to verify that information, she told me it had to be washed. Not wanting to screw up a very expensive purchase, I called Dr. Parry on his cell phone (he provided his number during our first consultation). He called me back that day and settled the question for me.

It lasted us a little over an hour and he talked with us about our history and next steps during that time.

How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Dr. Parry is probably the smartest person I know but also knows how to communicate in normal terms so you don't feel completely lost. Infertility can be so overwhelming and he has been so patient with us making sure we understand what is next in a treatment. He also gives us options and time to discuss those options. Since we live over an hour away, he has called us several times in the evenings to discuss next steps, answer questions and concerns and comfort us. He truly is the best!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Trust him. He knows what he's talking about! His goal is to get you pregnant so if you're not 100% sure, don't go see him yet.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
During our time with Dr. Parry and his staff I have always felt like a human being. There are no time restraints. If a conversation needs to last a long time, they take the time to explain everything. I've been given cell phone numbers in case I need to reach out to my doctor or his nurses. We live over an hour away and if we're late because of traffic they will stay late and make sure we're seen and treated very well.

After that he develops a plan for you tailored to what he has seen. That is where he discovered I have endometriosis - I had a cyst on my left ovary that was an endometrioma. He suggested 3 rounds of IUI and possible surgery to remove the cyst. I did 2 rounds of IUI with Letrozole. Both were unsuccessful. We then had surgery to remove the cyst and had my final round of IUI with 7mg of Letrozole. That was unsuccessful as well. We are now considering IVF.

How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I went through 4 transfers of IVF with him. Every time it didn’t work he was just as upset as we were. On my last transfer we finally got pregnant with twins and were able to see the heartbeat at 7 weeks. When we went back for our 10 week ultrasound the heartbeats weren’t there. He hugged us and sat with us while we cried. He has became not only a doctor to us but someone we hold very dear to our hearts.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
If you want someone who genuinely cares about helping you start a family go see him. He listens to your concerns, answers all questions so you can understand, and never gives up on you. I can’t express how thankful we are for him even though we are still on our journey.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Under the care of Dr Parry, we always felt like we were his only patient. He made us feel like family.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Brittney Linton and Vicki Butler )

The whole team there is so welcoming. We can name each person my name. From Melissa the office manager, the receptionist Tracy who always greats us with a smile and asks us how we are feeling, to the embryologist Dr. Dorfman and Mandy. They are truly the dream team.

How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
With being a nurse myself it’s always so hard to be on the other side of things and have to be the patient. From the moment I walked into that clinic for my consultation Dr. Parry was amazing. He answered every single question I had. By the end of my consultation he already had a treatment plan ready and I walked out of the door with a proposed plan. He is beyond brilliant. Throughout my nursing career I have met a bunch of physicians and he is probably one of the smartest people I have ever met.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Because he is so brilliant sometimes he can get a little over the top with medical terms. Just ask him to explain it if you don’t understand something. He will be more than happy to further explain.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
One of the main things I love about Positive Steps is they 100% treat you as an individual and not a number. They know no one wants to have to walk through those doors if they don’t have to and they also know everyone that does come to their clinic truly wants answers and help
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
Every one of his patients has a procedure called the “Parryscope” done. It is his patent pending procedure that looks with a camera at the ovaries and uterus. This procedure does not require any sedation at all. Within 5 minutes they were able to tell that I had tubal blockage. At that point we realized our safest and only option was IVF. Dr. Parry was very thorough with explaining our options. One thing I like about him is that he is honest and safe with every decision and he always keeps your financial situation in mind when planning your care. At this point Dr. Parry said there are procedures to unblock tubes but that I could run a high risk of damaging the tube and thus having an ectopic pregnancy. He also made a very valid point that the money spent on that procedure could’ve gone toward IVF and it would be 100% safer and non life threatening than risking an ectopic pregnancy. So at this time we decided to go forward with IVF. We started all the oral medications as suggested and then COVID-19 hit. With me being an emergency room nurse and my husband a fireman/ first responder we decided to postpone IVF until the pandemic subsided
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Vicki)
Mrs. Vicki was the absolute best!!!!!! She truly loves each and every one of her patients. She hugs you every single time you walk through those doors as if you were her own family member.
Describe your experience with Positive Steps Fertility.
Brand new nice modern clinic/building. Random fact we found out from the neighboring clinic is that Positive Steps has its own ventilation system so that if anything was sprayed (pesticides etc) outside it wouldn’t enter the clinic and thus harm the embryos.

Upon not conceiving with the other physician, we decided to change to Dr. Parry. After learning of my failed IUI, he instantly suggested that I have a parryscope done (his own procedure). Two minutes into the procedure, he was able to tell me that my fallopian tubes were blocked and that the IUI probably didn't work because my ovaries were not releasing eggs to be fertilized. He also discovered uterine polyps and later helped me remove them surgically with a hysteroscopy and D&C

How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I love Dr. Parry. The only problem that my husband and I are facing is finding the money to help us and Dr. Parry conceive. He is an excellent physician with great communication skills and concern for his patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Don't be nervous. Dr. Parry is one of the most down to earth individuals I have ever met. He not only talks to you in a way you can understand, but he also will listen to you no matter how absurd you think you're being.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Dr. Parry is amazing. He spent a lot of time with my husband and I discussing our infertility issues and explaining our options. Unlike other doctors I have seen, he wanted to determine why we were unable to conceive before just trying various treatments and wasting our time and money on stuff that wouldn't have worked.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
I used another doctor for my only round of IUI using donor sperm, but the distance to this doctor was hard for us to get to him without missing a day of work. Upon not conceiving with the other physician, we decided to change to Dr. Parry. After learning of my failed IUI, he instantly suggested that I have a parryscope done (his own procedure). Two minutes into the procedure, he was able to tell me that my fallopian tubes were blocked and that the IUI probably didn't work because my ovaries were not releasing eggs to be fertilized. He also discovered uterine polyps and later helped me remove them surgically with a hysteroscopy and D&C. Afterward the parryscope, we came to the conclusion that in vitro would be the best option for my husband and I to achieve our dreams of starting a family. Since then, my husband has already had a sperm retrieval and we are desperately trying to save money so that we can attempt a round of ivf. Dr. Parry has always done whatever he can to make sure I am taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
He suggested that we try IUI, even after a failed attempt of IVF at another clinic. He offers a low-cost IUI package in hopes that pregnancy can be reached this easily. Even though it was not successful for me, we learned how my body responds to ovarian stimulants over the course of three months. So, my advice would be to communicate with Dr Perry if time is of the essence for you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I have been treated with respect and compassion from the first consult. My feelings, questions and concerns are each acknowledged with patience and understanding.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
My IUI treatments began with Letrozole 7.5mg CD 1-7, ultrasound day 10, trigger shot when appropriate and IUI within 36 hrs. The high dose Letrozole produced a nice, thick uterine lining each month. I produced multiple, mature follicle each month, but suspect that the eggs were of poor quality due to age.

When my husband and I first met Dr Parry, he was thoughtful and understanding of our situation. No question that we had was a dumb question to ask. Before we finished our consult, he gave us his business card with his personal phone number on the back and said to call him day or night if we had any questions. We believe Dr Parry has a large customer base, yet he always knew who we were and our situation...After each IUI that did not take, Not only were my husband and I disappointed, but Dr Parry was too. He is so invested with your process just as you are. Dr Parry explained to us the reason for why we were not getting pregnant and it was due to male infertility issues. He helped walk us through the donor sperm process and answered any questions that we had. He made us feel very comfortable with a very uncomfortable situation. As an example, on certain testing that requires up front payment, when we had maxed out our budget he offered to bill us “down the road”. He had told us that his biggest goal was not money, it was to have successful out comes for his patients.
Vickie [nurse at Positive Steps Fertility] was very sweet, calm, and understanding. She answered our questions to the best of her ability. If we happened to ask a question that she did not know the answer, she had no problem asking Dr Parry...$150 for the first consult with Dr Parry. $900 for the Parryscope. $285 for blood work. $1,100 for IUI package. $3,125 for 3 sperm donors. $175 for an extra ultrasound...We have absolutely no flaws with Positive Steps Fertility. Every person that works there is very respectful and treats you like family. They had the facility cleaned and organized every time we went there.

Dr Parry explained to us the reason for why we were not getting pregnant and it was due to male infertility issues. He helped walk us through the donor sperm process and answered any questions that we had. He made us feel very comfortable with a very uncomfortable situation. As an example, on certain testing that requires up front payment, when we had maxed out our budget he offered to bill us “down the road”. He had told us that his biggest goal was not money, it was to have successful out comes for his patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
You don’t feel as if your a patient to Dr Parry. He makes you feel like family.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
When my husband and I first met Dr Parry, he was thoughtful and understanding of our situation. No question that we had was a dumb question to ask. Before we finished our consult, he gave us his business card with his personal phone number on the back and said to call him day or night if we had any questions. We believe Dr Parry has a large customer base, yet he always knew who we were and our situation.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
Since we found out that my husband has a male infertility issue, Dr Parry wanted me to do his Parryscope procedure. Last April we went in and did the scope and everything came back “text book perfect” according to him. In May we did the first IUI procedure. He had me take 1 pill (Letrozole) 3 days after my cycle for 5 days. We then went in for an ultrasound and I had 1 egg to drop that month. We proceeded with the insemination. Unfortually, I did not make it to the 14 day waiting period. He realized that I have a short Luteal phase. He started me on taking 2 pills for 6 days. When we went in for the ultrasound, I had 1 egg again. My husband and I decided to hold off on the insemination that month. Once I stared my cycle, Dr Parry bumped my medicine up to 3 pills and take for 7 days. That following ultrasound showed 2 eggs! We were very excited and proceeded with the insemination. I made it to the 14 day waiting period but my cycle came. We had 1 more chance at IUI so he kept my medicine the same for that month. The ultrasound showed 2 eggs again so we agreed to do it that month. 14 days later, my cycle started. We were all disappointed, even Dr Parry. We met with him again to get a new game plan and have decided to do IVF. He believes that our chance of bringing home a baby is very high. He believes that IVF will work for us.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Vickie Butler and Brittany.)
Vickie was very sweet, calm, and understanding. She answered our questions to the best of her ability. If we happened to ask a question that she did not know the answer, she had no problem asking Dr Parry. Every time we called and left a message for her, she returned our call before she left for the day.
Describe your experience with Positive Steps Fertility.
We have absolutely no flaws with Positive Steps Fertility. Every person that works there is very respectful and treats you like family. They had the facility cleaned and organized every time we went there.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I feel like Dr Parry and his staff are very friendly, encouraging, and helpful. They all take the time to explain everything and answer any question you may have...Dr Parry is a great doctor. He wants to make sure all his patients understand the treatment they are receiving and allows you to ask questions and takes the time to answer them without making you feel like a burden. He is very Postive and encouraging.I would recommend him to anyone...I have only just started treatment with him. I just finished a round of Femera 7.5 mg for 5 days. I will receive an ultrasound next and if everything looks good receive the trigger shot then do an IUI.
The clinic [Positive Steps Fertility] is very nice, and they offer satellite clinics that are great for people who don’t live near their main clinic. They try to make the procedures as affordable as they can, and Dr Parry even try’s to be open and make suggestions on how to prevent you from wasting money on procedure if he doesn’t think it’s necessary. The only weakness would be the distance I have to travel, but so far it has been worth it...

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Parry. He takes however much time with you that you need for him to explain things. He even explains things in a way that you can actually understand...makes me feel like he truly cares...He studies and researches ALL the time...The first meeting that my husband and I had with Dr. Parry was so informative and really gave me a sense of direction and clarity. I know exactly what we are doing in each procedure and he walks you through everything.
Vicki [nurse at Positive Steps Fertility] is awesome! She always returns calls, answers questions and has the best personality. Hands down one of the best nurses I have ever had...does not accept insurance so everything is out of pocket. Initial consultation is $150, Parryscope is $900, Tubal Cannulation and Uterine Polyp removal was $2,200. IVF is $11,000 (not including medication)...There is nothing negative I can say about this clinic. They are great with communication, education, making you feel welcomed, making you feel like a human and not a number and they are always available to help their patients.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Dr. Parry is an incredibly smart doctor. He studies and researches ALL the time. Dr. Parry is the second RE that I have seen and I hate that he wasn't the first! I am so thankful to have found him and his clinic. The first meeting that my husband and I had with Dr. Parry was so informative and really gave me a sense of direction and clarity. I know exactly what we are doing in each procedure and he walks you through everything.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Ask lots of questions and he will explain everything! He won't make you feel rushed so make sure you take your time to really understand everything he is telling you and if you don't understand, he will always explain it in a different way. Also, do your research and be active in the process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Parry. He takes however much time with you that you need for him to explain things. He even explains things in a way that you can actually understand. He makes statements like "if you were my wife" or "if I were in this situation" and that makes me feel like he truly cares.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
Dr. Parry developed a new technique called Parryscope Fertility Testing. Before Dr. Parry, I saw another RE who put me on Letrozole and did monthly follicular monitoring and one round of IUI. None of that worked and I wasn't really getting any answers as to why and what to do. So, I found Dr. Parry and he did the Parryscope. The Parryscope gives you an actual look inside the uterus and evaluates the fallopian tubes. It is not an ultrasound. It is an actual camera view. Through the Parryscope I found out that I had two uterine polyps and that my left fallopian tube (the only one I have because of an ectopic pregnancy in the right) is blocked. So, after the Parryscope, I had a procedure to remove the polyps and a tubal cannulation to see if the left tube could be opened- which it couldn't. I am now on Dr. Parry's schedule for IVF in July.

Dr. Parry is very soft spoken and friendly. He brings you into his office and pulls up a chair beside you to talk. He makes you feel very comfortable and I have no problem asking him questions. Before leaving he always asks if there are any questions or concerns that we need to talk about.... I have had the Parryscope done by him to make sure everything on my end is still working and open. He actually developed the Parryscope to replace the painful HSG procedure.
I honestly haven't found a weakness yet. And that's coming from a nurse who expects the best from other nurses. They [Positive Steps] are all so polite and make sure you have everything you need.... Dr. Parry likes to be cost-effective. He actually does a bundle deal with IUI's. He does 3 IUIs for $1200 and that includes meds and ultrasound. He has a set rate for IVF and has already given us a paper with the cost upfront.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Dr. Parry is very soft spoken and friendly. He brings you into his office and pulls up a chair beside you to talk. He makes you feel very comfortable and I have no problem asking him questions. Before leaving he always asks if there are any questions or concerns that we need to talk about. He doesn't let you leave feeling confused. His motto is "WHEN you get pregnant..., not IF you get pregnant."
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
To make him be your first infertility doctor. Don't go to anyone else, start with the best.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
When you come through the door, each person there (including the receptionist, the nurses, the doctor) all know you and your spouse by name. They are all so friendly. One of the nurses says she was supposed to be in charge of setting up an email between the patients and nurses but did not do it because she wants to at least speak on the phone to us. She says she can't hear our voices or emotions through an email and wants to have more of a personal relationship with us.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
I am currently waiting to be placed in the May group for our first round of IVF. I have had the Parryscope done by him to make sure everything on my end is still working and open. He actually developed the Parryscope to replace the painful HSG procedure. Let me tell you, it is a complete difference between the two. The Parryscope does not hurt at all and you get to watch what he is doing on a big tv screen in the room while its happening. It's very informative.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Brittany and Vicki are the two nurses we see.)
I'll start by saying they are the kindest nurses. They understand what you're going through and make you feel like family. Brittany even cried with me on our first visit while I was explaining our infertility journey (7 years). They each have their own conference room where they sit down with you and go over everything. They make sure you understand each process that you're about to go through. They are both very organized and don't make you feel rushed or like they need to hurry to the next patient.
Describe your experience with Positive Steps Fertility.
I honestly haven't found a weakness yet. And that's coming from a nurse who expects the best from other nurses. They are all so polite and make sure you have everything you need. Their biggest strength is everyone seems to actually care that you are a patient there and they want the results that you want just as bad as you do.

There's no hidden fees I have to worry about and they let us know when each payment would be due by so we can plan ahead.

I have felt supported and cared for by Dr Parry throughout our fertility struggle. He has been there for us emotional as well as giving us advice for being able to hopefully have our miracle.... I had two previous laparoscopic surgeries due to stage 4 endometriosis. After a thorough review of my medical history, Dr Parry advised IVF as he felt IUI would not be successful due to the severe damage to my tubes. He provided a scope to assess uterus and ovaries and then gave us the all clear to proceed.
Strengths [of Positive Steps]- maintain low patient caseload to allow personalized care, always accessible 24/7 via phone, very educated Dr and staff with high success rates. Weakness- not exactly a weakness but if you are in a hurry you may have to wait a few months for IVF. They got me in right away for consultation but I have to wait several months for an opening to begin IVF process due to Dr Parry only performing a limited number of IVF cycles each month!
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I have felt supported and cared for by Dr Parry throughout our fertility struggle. He has been there for us emotional as well as giving us advice for being able to hopefully have our miracle. We couldn’t afford IVF on our own and he provided us with contact information during our consult to a bank that thankfully provided us a loan to cover our procedure and medications which came in over $18,000. When I was was out of town and had a question on a Saturday evening he called back within the hour. We have had a wonderful experience with Dr Parry.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I would advise anyone seeing Dr Parry to just be honest with him! He will spend all the time you need answering questions , and after battling infertility there is no greater feeling than hope after your initial consultation.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
After trying to conceive for two years, surgery, all of the possible medications, and two heartbreaking miscarriages, my husband and I were both at the point of feeling hopeless. After meeting with Dr Parry and his team we both felt hope for the first time in years. He spent an hour answering any and all questions and providing us with honesty and compassion. He even issued his personal cell phone for us to contact him at any time during our cycle with him. He also informed us that he limits his IVF clients each month to around 10 that way he could provide the best personalized care. We left feeling hopeful and cared for. I cannot praise Dr Parry and his team enough!
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
I had two previous laparoscopic surgeries due to stage 4 endometriosis. After a thorough review of my medical history, Dr Parry advised IVF as he felt IUI would not be successful due to the severe damage to my tubes. He provided a scope to assess uterus and ovaries and then gave us the all clear to proceed. We did a month of birth control pills to prepare my body for IVF follows by two weeks of Lupron injections. We then went for a basline ultrasound and bloodwork as well as a “trial transfer” to ensure he would be able to properly access the uterus for embryo transfer. That was successful which resulted in a recommendation to do a morning dose of Menopur and an evening dose of Follistim and Lupron for our stimulation protocol. During the two weeks of stim meds we went to the clinic every other day for ultrasound. Going to the clinic that frequently provided reassurance that everything was going as needed and allowed Dr Parry to closely monitor the IVF cycle. I also took oral medications to prevent OHSS and infection. Dr Parry was very proactive!
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Positive Steps Fertility.
Dr Parry has two primary nurses that equally provide care. Both of them provided their personal cell phones to be contacted at any time. One Sunday I had an issue with a medication and the nurse answered right away! On days we did not have ultrasounds during our stim medications they would call and check in as well as calling to check in after egg retrieval surgery and transfer. They answered any and all questions just like Dr Parry and were very knowledgeable about the IVF process.

(Which is wonderful once it’s your turn!)
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility.
The initial consultation was $150. He performed the scope which was an additional $900. We received two ultrasounds at $125 each. IVF and medications cost us a little over $17,000 initially but we have had to order some refills which have been an additional cost. All of this has been out of pocket (which we had to take a loan out for) as insurance in Mississippi does not cover infertility.
Describe Preston Parry's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Positive Steps Fertility.
Dr Parry believed that the absence of functional tubes and stage 4 endometriosis was the reason we were having miscarriages and unable to successfully concieve. Due to the presence of healthy eggs and my husband having healthy sperm he felt that one embryo would be a great starting point for us. He stated that it was of course up to us, but that he was providing his best evidence based recommendation based on our specific case.

Dr. Parry is a very calm, well-spoken doctor. He always asks if you have any questions or concerns. His bedside manner is superb. At every appointment, he made sure I understand what the treatment plan was going forward and what expectations were.... He immediately started us on IUIs, and we did a total of 6 with him. We used Letrozole to grow multiple follicles during the IUIs and trigger shots to time ovulation after ultrasound monitoring. After the 6th failed IUI, we moved on to IVF.
This clinic's strengths are definitely their compassion and knowledge. Their weaknesses are that scheduling can sometimes be inconvenient, especially if you are having to travel to the clinic. They [Positive Steps] try to work with you as best they can.... Vicki and Brittney are Dr. Parry's two nurses. They were both fantastic. They were very knowledgeable and answered any questions or concerns I had. They never made me feel stupid for being nervous or having questions.

Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
We began seeing Dr. Parry after unsuccessfully trying to get pregnant for a year. He immediately started us on IUIs, and we did a total of 6 with him. We used Letrozole to grow multiple follicles during the IUIs and trigger shots to time ovulation after ultrasound monitoring. After the 6th failed IUI, we moved on to IVF. I did birth control and Lupron for about 3-4 weeks. Then I was on 5 units Lupron, 75IU Menopur, and 225IU Follistim daily until we did our trigger shot after 4 monitoring appointments.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility.
We paid $2,100 for 6 IUIs with Dr. Parry. This included one ultrasound per IUI. Our medications for 6 IUIs totalled around $600. Our IVF package cost $14,000 and included one egg retrieval and 4 transfers plus monitoring ultrasounds and labwork. It also included their fee to biopsy our Day 5 embryos. We also paid approximately $1,500 to the testing company for PGS testing and approximately $2,500 for all of our medications.
Describe Preston Parry's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Positive Steps Fertility.
If you are less than 35 years old, Dr. Parry prefers to only transfer a single embryo at a time. If you are older than 35, he is willing to transfer more than one.

He [Dr. Preston Perry] is knowledgable, and good at his work. He is approachable, friendly and takes time to listen and explain in detail...we initially did sonohysterography and it suggested tubal blockage. But I did not want to go through hysterosalpingogram/HSG--as I have heard its uncomfortable/painful procedure...we decided to give IUI a try though likelihood of pregnancy would be very low due to tubal blockage --but as I did not do HSG we were hopeful that may be I just had spasm at time of sonohysterograph. we tried 2 IUIs with no pregnancy--and decided not to go further. now we are starting IVF Nurse

Dr Parry was honest and forthcoming with information about my fertility issues. He answered all of my questions and concerns. He is the first doctor to actually provide me with answers to the questions that have tormented me. It was typical for me cry during my fertility appointments (I was overwhelmed), but with Dr. Parry I had a feeling of relief and joy. He is truly exceptional.
The clinic [Positive Steps Fertility] is very professional. The staff is polite and very cordial. Everyone understands that fertility is a sensitive issue. They work really hard to make you feel comfortable. I always get the “you are not alone” feeling when I’m there.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
As a patient of Dr. Parry, I was always welcomed and made comfortable. He encourages and gives hope to his patients. During my first round of IUI, I had an appointment for an ultrasound to check my ovulation status (this was my second). Dr. Parry informed me that I wasn’t ovulating yet, but adjustments were being made to my medications. We made a plan to have another visit later that week. He reassured me that everything would be fine. I left the office disappointed, but hopeful. When I reached my car, I became overwhelmed with tears. I could barely drive myself home or even call my husband for support. After making it home, my husband calls to check on me. I wasn’t able to get much out, but my husband understood. He was able to go to Dr. Parry’s office and talk with him. Dr. Parry took the time to sit down with my husband and go over all the details with him. He shows that we are more than just patients, we’re family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Be honest and open. Expect lots of information, but know that you will have all your questions answered.

Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with PCOS. Dr. Parry provides my husband and I several options. The most cost-effective option was IUI. I was placed on a regimen of 3 Letrozole (2.5mg) days 3-7 of my cycle. After not ovulating, my dose was increased to 5 Letrozole (2.5mg) for an additional 5 days. Still nothing, Dr. Parry added 3 Clomid to the prescribed 5 Letrozole for an additional 5 days. Finally got an egg. We tried the first round of IUI. The pregnancy test was negative. Dr. Parry continued the 5/3 Letrozole and Clomid combination to yield three healthy eggs for the next round of IUI.

Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at University of Mississippi and their degree of success.
I had an in office hysteroscopy (Parryscope) that helped him evaluate the external contour and internal appearance of my womb. He also was able to get an egg count and check tubal patency at that time. He then offered IUI with femara and trigger shots, which I declined. I went on to have 2 miscarriages and d&c's. I went back to dr. Parry and had another parryscope to reevaluate the womb for scarring. I went on to have a 3rd miscarriage. I then requested a pelvic MRI from my regular OB to verify bicornuate vs septate uterus. Once bicornuate uterus was ruled out and septate was confirmed I went back to dr. Parry. He reviewed the MRI images and confirmed the diagnosis. He then performed a septum resection. I did a balloon catheter for 3 days post resection then 30 days of estrogen therapy. 2 months after my septum resection I became pregnant and am currently 18 weeks

From the moment I walked into the doors of Positive Steps Fertility I felt like I was a Friend not a patient who is struggling with InFertility. Every employee I encountered was so heart warmingly friendly. They talked to my husband I as though We had known them for years. With the constant reassurance that they were on our side we felt more at home than we could have ever imagined and we felt more relaxed when it came to talking with Dr. Parry. Every time we have been in the office we have never felt more than welcome Dr. Parry just constantly make sure we have never left with questions and has made us always feel like family just like his Staff!
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
We started with my OB sending my Husband to Dr. Parry to have his Semen analysis done. Within an hour maybe two Dr. Parry himself called my husband with the results! (Which I was very pleased with) We then scheduled our consultation to talk about how his results did not turn out quite like we had hoped! During that consultation Dr. Parry laid out a plan of action. We scheduled me to have a Parryscope done (Dr. Parry invented this) the scope is done in office and you get to watch as he travels to your uterus and checks to Make sure it looks great and the releases saline which goes through tube to discover blockage! During my scope we realized my tubes were not letting anything I do Dr. Parry assured me it could have just been a bad day for my uterus! So at this point we chose to go forth with the plan of IUI we chose to do one round of IUI Dr. Parry had me Day letrazal 5.5 for 5 days I went back in and I had 1 Beautiful Folical so we did insemination the next day and since that did not work then I had to schedule laparoscopic procedure with my OB to further investigate possible tubal blockage. Well my left tube was block once my OB was inside and he was Thankfully able to unblock. I am currently recovering from this procedure and can not wait to go back and proceed with my 2nd round of IUI

I love how thorough he [Dr. Parry] is. We go over every possibility before it happens so I know what to expect. He told me at my last appt what he would do if I was his wife and that made me feel much better about having to have my tubes removed. I felt that he was as sorry about having to tell me about having to have the procedure as I was sad I was being told....He’s also a numbers guy and presents me with percentages and I like that!!
The lady at the desk [Positive Steps] is great! Always very friendly!! Very prompt on calling back and I always get in in a timely manner!! I only wish they offered a payment plan because fertility treatments are so expensive it I’m sure none really do. That’s the only really negative thing I can think of....I did a scope test that was 850. I’ve had 2 ultrasounds at 215 a piece. I’ve had 2 consultations for 250 a piece

Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
We first started with letrozole. Did it for 3 months. He then was ready to move onto IUI. It was the holidays though so my husband and I decided to wait until after. When we got ready for IUI, we did another ultrasound and found out I had cysts on one ovary and both tubes. Had all 3 removed and now we are looking into IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Vicki )
All have been top notch! Call and check on me at home.
Describe your experience with Positive Steps Fertility.
The lady at the desk is great! Always very friendly!! Very prompt on calling back and I always get in in a timely manner!! I only wish they offered a payment plan because fertility treatments are so expensive it I’m sure none really do. That’s the only really negative thing I can think of.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility.
I did a scope test that was 850. I’ve had 2 ultrasounds at 215 a piece. I’ve had 2 consultations for 250 a piece

Dr. Parry is very detailed in his explanations for absolutely everything. He does so in such an honest and factual manner while maintaining a good bedside manner. Any questions you have, he either knows the answers or find the answer for you. He is very research oriented, so I never feel as though he will lead me astray.... After 20 pain-free minutes, the Parryscope was complete - with me seeing the entire procedure - and I had the answers I needed (there actually was a blockage).
This clinic [Positive Steps Fertility] is very rare. Employees are quick to respond to you - same day, every time. With the amount of trips you make to a fertility clinic in one month, you could normally come up with a ton of negatives, but in my 3 years of treatment, this place is the exception.... Dr. Parry and his staff spend as much time with you as you need and I have never felt rushed with any of them.

Dr. Parry and his staff spend as much time with you as you need and I have never felt rushed with any of them.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
First, Dr. Parry performed his Parryscope procedure to check tubal patency and any other abnormalities that may be present. (I had recently undergone a painful surgery with a different physician to learn the same information. I recovered from the previous surgery but was left with no explanation for infertility and was also informed my tubes were open.) After 20 pain-free minutes, the Parryscope was complete - with me seeing the entire procedure - and I had the answers I needed (there actually was a blockage). Dr. Parry has been progressive with my treatment, but not too much. If something is not necessary, it does not happen.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Vicki and Brittany)
The nursing staff here, especially Brittany and Vicki, are nothing short of amazing. They work so many hours but treat you as if they have all the time in the day to spend with you. They will call you back at any hour to ensure you hear from them. At such a hard and sensitive time in someone's life, they make the biggest difference!

$900 for the Parryscope and (I believe) about $1300 for 3 rounds of IUI with 3 ultrasounds. Each additional ultrasound was $175.

Success w/ Doc Not sure
I felt like a human because Dr. Parry and his staff never rushed us to make a decision. After we explained our financial situation, they all were very patient. To know that they remembered me even when I called made me feel as if we had known each other forever ... As a patient, I would never want to go to another doctor because of Dr. Parry’s kindness. At each appointment Dr. parry would come in and ask if we had any questions or concerns and if we did he would answer them all!
Brittany was the first nurse that I saw when I went to the reproductive clinic in Flowood [University of Mississippi]. When they moved the clinic to Madison, I saw her again and she remembered us and our whole situation. Her knowledge of what I went through showed that she loves her job and she cares for her patients. ... The clinic has a new building and I haven’t been to it yet. The strengths are that they are on time, kind, and respectful of the views of their patients. One weakness is that it was hard to contact someone recently with the move.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at University of Mississippi?
Dr. Parry is very knowledgeable about his profession. The time that he took to speak with my husband and I will never be forgotten. He has never rushed us away and after I had both of my tubes removed at only 26 years old, he stayed at the hospital to ensure that I was ok. As a patient, I would never want to go to another doctor because of Dr. Parry’s kindness. At each appointment Dr. parry would come in and ask if we had any questions or concerns and if we did he would answer them all!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at University of Mississippi?
I would tell a prospective patient to trust the process. Dr. Parry will always be there if you have any questions. Going through IVF is rough, but when you have an amazing doctor who can help ease your mind, it makes a big difference.

He [Dr. Perry] loves to educate his patients!...We did femara and ovidrel trigfer for IUI. We are using Lupron, Follistim, and Menopur with PIO for IVF with 5 day transfer...After doing embryo grading A-D, he usually recommends 1 embryo transfer. If over age of 35 or multiple failed IVF, he recommends 2 embryos...speaks to us as though we are family. He remembers details other doctors often forget like what we do for a living and friends/family members. He also uses terms that we understand and does not speak over our heads. He truly is like family!

I can't imagine not having Dr. Parry as my doctor. I've had doctors in the past treat me like I was less than capable of understanding, brush me and concerns off, or even refuse to answer questions I've had. Dr. Parry does not do that. If you do struggle to understand something, he has no problem breaking it down for you... The very first thing we did was test my tubes for blockages. Dr. Parry has his own, patent pending, method (Parryscope) for this that does not use dyes.
Every test, with the exception of a few blood tests, are done in-house. All of my exams, my tests, have been done right there in the clinic [Positive Steps Fertility]. Everything that the doctor sees via ultrasound or sonogram, the patient sees as well via flat screen t.v.s in every room. Privacy is a huge concern, and their rooms are all designed with that in mind, so there are no accidental walk ins during your procedure. Mrs. Tracy occupies the front desk and will likely be the one to check you in, and she is still a welcoming sight to this day.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
I can't imagine not having Dr. Parry as my doctor. I've had doctors in the past treat me like I was less than capable of understanding, brush me and concerns off, or even refuse to answer questions I've had. Dr. Parry does not do that. If you do struggle to understand something, he has no problem breaking it down for you, and it is never done in a demeaning or demoralizing way. He understands that it's a lot to take in at times, and doesn't mind slowing things down or breaking the information up into chunks, or however the patient is better able to understand. If you're concerned about something, he will listen to your concern, hear why you're concerned, and then be open to discussing it. I've obsessed over OPKs, basal body temperature, altering diets, and so on. He has heard every concern, and thoroughly discussed it with me. And not only that, he's up to date on his literature and research. If he tells you something probably isn't that big of factor or to not worry because this doesn't affect that as much as we think it does, or to do that instead of this, he has the current, peer-reviewed research to back it up. As far as asking questions, I have literally walked in with a list, on more than one occasion, and when I left, every one of those questions was answered. He utilizes his network of colleagues and peers, as well. If he *doesn't* have an answer for something, he will find it by accessing that network, because it's not a competition to him. It's not a business of making money or a name for himself. It's a business of building families.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Don't be afraid to ask questions, but more importantly than that, don't be afraid to let him fly the plane. That's the analogy he gave me during my consultation. Yes, passengers on a flight have certain responsibilities and things they can do to make the flight better, but it ultimately depends on the pilot. Relax, and let him fly. You are in amazing hands. And stay off of the forums when you do have a question. Even if you aren't an established patient of his, you can call with any question, any question whatsoever, and he will answer it for you. Online forums can cause more distress. Asking Dr. Parry puts you right at ease.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
What makes a human a human? Without going too deeply into the question, a name. I met Dr. Parry and his staff at the opening ceremony of their new clinic. A month later, when I went in for a full consultation, they still remembered my name. Even on the phone, I can hear it in their voices, that I'm just another number dialed. They will call you by your name. They will remember details about you, like what name you have picked out or if you've changed your hair even the slightest, something my husband struggles to do, haha. The nurses are going to hug you or put an arm around you (if you're comfortable with that) and genuinely ask how you've been every time they see you. And when you get upsetting news or are disappointed, they're not going to rush you out the door. They're going to hold your hand, and answer your questions. They're going to stay on the phone with you while you cry. You don't do that for numbers. You do that for people.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles at Positive Steps Fertility and their degree of success.
The very first thing we did was test my tubes for blockages. Dr. Parry has his own, patent pending, method (Parryscope) for this that does not use dyes. If you tend to have allergies to things like me, this method is a god send. First, he examines your pelvis, cervix, uterus, and ovaries via trans-vaginal ultrasound. After that, a hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix and into the uterus. It was not nearly as uncomfortable as I had anticipated. I was able to stay relaxed throughout the entire procedure. After the camera is inserted, saline (rather than dye) is used to expand the uterus. The next step is to release air bubbles to see if they travel through the Fallopian tubes, indicating whether or not there is a blockage. The entire procedure takes maybe 15-20 minutes, and results are immediate; no waiting. The procedure is done in-house, and virtually pain free. I say that as someone with severe Endometriosis who usually has pain reactions to a typical pap smear. After we determined that my tubes were clear, he set up a medication schedule. Since my right ovary was not working on its own, he gave me directions for taking Femara 2.5, which were 4 tablets on days 2 through 7 of my cycle. Then I was to come in for an ultrasound on day 9 or 10 to check my follicles. My very first checkup after starting the medication, I had two big, healthy follicles ready to go, even on my right ovary. While I did not conceive during that cycle, we were excited to know that we are on the right track.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Positive Steps Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Vickie Butler)
Mrs. Vicki is not just a nurse. She is your mother, your sister, your coach, your pastor, and that list can go on and on. But most of all, she is your friend. She genuinely cares about your well-being, and goes beyond meeting the standard for patient care. Mrs. Vicki returns all calls, even returning one of mine when she was on the other side of the country! She breaks things down for you, will let you cry as much as you need to, and most importantly, in my opinion, will not tell you what you want to hear just to avoid bad news. It's not easy looking into the face of a hopeful couple and giving less than awesome news, but she manages to do it in such a way that, even though you're disappointed, you understand and are thankful for having her to be the one to tell you. She's up front about options and chances, and if you're like me, you enjoy having hope, but not false hope. As your friend, Mrs. Vicki isn't going to give you false hope. She wants you to have faith, sure, but she also wants you to know exactly what you're up against. I cannot imagine fighting this uphill battle with stage IV Endometriosis with diminished ovarian reserve at 33 without her. Because I know she's going to be honest with me, while also still rooting for me and supporting my decisions.

Mrs. Tracy occupies the front desk and will likely be the one to check you in, and she is still a welcoming sight to this day. She greets you with a smile, and will most likely already have you pulled up on her computer before you get done telling her how you've been. She will also remind you that you are free to grab yourself a bottled water or have a cup of coffee while you wait, though your wait will likely never be longer than 5-10 minutes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility.
A full consult for a new patient was (at the time I started using this clinic) $150. A consult typically lasts about an hour or more. The Parryscope test was/is $850. My fertility medication (Femara) at my local, independent pharmacy is roughly $12, and there's enough left over for the next month. Ultrasounds are $175. For 3 rounds of IUI (insemination) and 3 ultrasounds was/is $1,000. In vitro, including monitoring anesthesia, retrieval, and up to 4 transfers was/is $9,9950. They also work closely with credit unions/banks for those that may need to take out a loan to pay for treatment.

Dr. Parry has always treated me and my husband as if we are his only patients. He always takes his time with us, has gotten to know us and takes an interest in our personal lives. He explains everything to great detail and it’s obvious he really cares for his patients as well as has a passion for reproductive medicine.... He was very optimistic about our chances with IUI. We did IUI with Femara and Pregnyl six times, increasing dosages here and there, but to no avail.
This clinics strengths are definitely it’s staff! They are amazing! The only weakness I can think of is that they [Positive Steps Fertility] are in transition right now as they build a new clinic. Their temporary office isn’t built for their needs.... Mrs. Vicki makes me feel like a part of her family every time I see her. She is so warm and kind. She is also incredibly intelligent and has had so much experience with reproductive medicine. Britney is so sweet and really organized! I wish I could pay her to organize my life! She is very passionate about the goals of the clinic.
How was your experience with Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Dr. Parry is an amazing doctor! I’ve been a nurse for several years and I know how some in the healthcare field can talk to patients. He had always shown us empathy and compassion. He also is an avid economist and takes our pocket book into consideration. He’s not trying to make us “break the bank” on fertility treatments. He has a fantastic practice and I would (and have) recommend him to anyone.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry at Positive Steps Fertility?
Be aware that no matter how optimistic you feel, there is only so much he can do. The rest is up to God.
