During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Very personable and empathetic. They cry when you cry and jump for joy for you! I love everyone in that office.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Cynthia and Dee are great! They tolerate me quite well and return my phone calls promptly.
How was your experience with Kristina Hawkins?
Dr. Hawkins is also a teaching dr, so you only see her when neccessary (for consults and procedures). Which has never bothered me bc for the most part you only go in for blood test and ultrasounds to check your progress. But, she does review all of the results and responds via nurses.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kristina Hawkins?
It has nothing to do with Dr. Hawkins, she's absolutely fantastic, but every woman's body is different and things may not always work the way they should or textbook style. Be patient, be cautiously optomistic and be flexible. Also, she does not do IVF, she will refer you to another clinic for that, but she will do the monitoring for the IVF cycles.
Describe the protocols Kristina Hawkins used in your cycles and their degree of success.
About 3 rounds of clomid, different strengths, no results. 2 rounds of ovidrel, increasing dosages, not enough results. Several rounds of Follistem for a natural insemination, varying dosages trying to get the right number of follicles. 1 cycle resulted in trigger shot. Neg preg test. Moved on to IVF. Dr. Hawkins does not do IVF, but will do monitoring for them.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kristina Hawkins.
I had insurance for several treatments, fortunately. For noninsurance covered procedures, price could range from $50 to $300 per visit.
