Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
I think this clinic is really good at what they do! I think they're efficient & caring. The front desk staff (Jamie) is on task, my nurse (Jazmine) is great, & Dr. Prough is awesome to work with as well. It's been a good experience working with that team...they're just so far away from us (2 hours) & the cost of treatment was wearing us down a bit.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Prough was very up front with all treatment...very direct. He never made me feel sorry for myself & was totally understanding in my frustrations with not being able to conceive.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Jazmine is the sweetest, most sincere nurse I've EVER worked with in my life! She's compassionate, caring, thorough, & effective in her treatment. If anything, I miss going to Tulsa to see her...she was the best!!!!!
How was your experience with Stanley Prough?
Dr. Prough was fair in his treatment. I was a little dismayed by his once commenting that because of my age (39 at the time), my eggs may be old, because I know plenty of women my age that conceive all the time. But other than that, he was always direct, open, honest & compassionate in my care. Dr. Prough is a 'shoot-from-the-hip' kind of guy. He's caring without being too mushy & in his feelings & he seems to want your journey to pregnancy to be successful.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stanley Prough?
Be ready to take in a LOT of information very quickly! Dr. Prough can speak really quickly about some things because he's so well versed in his area. Write down terms you don't know and ask questions...he's receptive to giving more information as needed. But he talks fast, so be ready and pay attention!
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Dr. Prough said I had a good egg reserve for my age, but he was just unsure of the quality of my eggs. I'd had 3 unsuccessful IUI's and he said the best way to know the quality of my eggs is to do IVF, where they can be seen &monitored more microscopically. After my last failed IUI, Dr. Prough was still confident in my reception of the fertility drugs (Clomid & Trigger shot), so he recommended another IUI, but financially, we didn't want risk another disappointment after 3 months in a row.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stanley Prough.
I paid for office visits, blood work, medications that were shipped to me, sperm donor, & IUI procedures.
