Describe your experience with University of Mississippi.
I like that there is a separate entrance and exit for the infertility clinc from the rest of the office. I also like that you can call straight to the secretary of the clinic and that she knows who you are and can direct you to the nurse if you need them.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
At our first visit he gave us his personal cell number to call anytime we had concerns or worries along our journey. After my egg retrieval, I over stimulated and Dr. Parry himself came to check on me until I was able to be released. Also he personally called both times to share the news that our transfer had not resulted in a pregnancy. He then followed up in the next few weeks just to check on us and let us know he was there if we needed anything.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Vicki was our cheerleader and friend every step of our IVF journey. She hugged and let me cry on her shoulder and was there to hold my hand when my husband could not be at every visit before the transfers.
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
I think his way of being very compassionate shines through in his office visits. I always felt he was not in a hurry and that I was the only patient he had to see on that day. He always makes sure that myself and my husband fully understand each procedure and the things that can happen. He shared the good and bad sides to every procedure with us.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
Trust him and listen to his advice.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My first procedure was a hystescopy to make sure I did not have damage from 2 previous miscarriages year as ago. Then my husband had to have a biopsy to removed tissue that our embryologist used to separate out the sperm. We were so relived that she was able to find a lot of sperm. When we began the shots I had no issues at all, but at the first app. my estrogen level was 3 times the level it should have been. So we had to reduce my medication. On the day of the retrival Dr Parry and his nurse were already concered as my kidneys were not working that great. And during my retrival Dr Parry told my husband that I had fluid in pelvic and that I bleed a lot worse than he had expected. We were so happy to hear that we received 23 eggs. On day1 we had 20 that fertilized, day 2-4 we had 14 embryos. But come the day of transfer we were told we had two good embroyos and that they were not hopefully we would have any to freeze the next day. We were both an emotionally mess during the whole transfer. On my 1st embryo transfer I had retained a lot of fluid and I had a hard time getting enough water in me for the ultrasound due to my kidneys not working. Over the next two days I spiked a fever and gained 15 pounds over night. After a visit to the hospital and some medication the fluid slowly started coming off. All the progestin shots killed my hips and they were covers in bruises. We had to wait 3 days extra due to Thanksgiving to find out that our embryo transfer didn't work. The only blessing that came out was that I was healthy and that we had 4 embryos that look good enough to freeze. We decided to start another transfer immediately. So began the estrogen pills. At my first app to check on my lining Dr. Parry discovered that it was not at all the thickness it needed to be and that I had a hemorrhagic cyst that was starting to dissolve. So we waited another week and increased my estrogen pills from 3 times a day to 4 times. And we just had to hope and pray that the next week things would look better. The next week the cyst was gone and my lining was at 13. So we scheduled my 2nd transfer(frozen embryos). My husband and I were nervous but we belived that this was going to be our time. Our transfer was very laid back and we felt good about it. We just knew as we drove home that at least one of our two embroyos had taken and we hoped both had. 12 days later I received the news that we were not pregant. Heartbroken doesn't even began to describe what we felt. We are in the process of begin another transfer and this will be our final one, because we only have 2 embroyos left. We have discussed it and financially we can not afford another round of IVF.

Describe your experience with University of Mississippi.
I have a unique experience that I was treated at UMMC which is dr. Parrys old clinic. I haven’t been treated at the new clinic but know it is just as great as the old clinic because the staff moved to the new clinic. It wasn’t so much the facility/clinic than the staff that we loved.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Parry (and the staff actually) genuinely cares about me. He took his time answered ALL my questions patiently. Cried with me when I had my miscarriage. Celebrated when we were successful in the treatment. They were (are) my family. He cares about how my husband and I felt and understood the struggles and emotions we had in our journey so far. He listened to my frustrations with other doctors and adjusted our care in response to what hadn’t worked before. He also was very cost friendly and wanted to make sure we weren’t overly burdened with cost. You could just tell that he cared for us and our outcome as much as we did. We most certainly were not a number to them. We were family.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
They were an extension of dr. Parry. They were like family and genuinely cared. They were attentive and helpful.
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
He was very attentive and patient. You could tell he absolutely cares about our feelings and our experiences. He explained in detail and questions or procedures. He gave us his personal cell number to call if we had any questions as well (which was a big deal to me...not that I would use it but he cares enough that we could interrupt his personal life with his family in order to make my family feel at ease with any questions or concerns we had). I honestly cannot day enough great things about him.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
Be open and honest about your struggles and what you’ve done so far. He was the third doctor I had seen so it wasn’t my first rodeo. I told him my frustrations of previous treatments and he adjusted my care plan to accommodate what I knew wasn’t working (of course he did this as in agreement to my care and no just because I said to. He reviewed my charts, etc. so I didn’t dictate what was happening). But he listened and agreed that those treatments didn’t work for me and put a care plan together that did work. So be open with everything and trust him. He’ll help come up with the best care plan and cost effectiveness for your situation.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I honestly don’t remember dosage and names but I would take a pill to grow my eggs and then take a shot to force ovulation and egg drop. Then we did IUO treatments. I got pregnant twice (one miscarriage and one successful live birth with a wonderful baby boy whom we love!)
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
$1,000 for every 3 IUI treatments.

Very nice clinic [University of Mississippi]. Short wait times. Friendly staff. Professional staff. I cannot really think of any weaknesses needing to be addressed. The tech that was there for insenination always wished me luck and said she would keep us in her prayers and that meant a lot.... I primarily worked with Peggy, now with Peggy over the phone and Fran on ultrasound day. Peggy was very sincere and compassionate following our misscarriage. She always calls back and answers questions in a timely manner.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Isaacs and his staff are always available for answering questions. I feel comfortable with procedures when I go to the clinic. I feel like he wants his patients to be successful with pregnancy.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I primarily worked with Peggy, now with Peggy over the phone and Fran on ultrasound day. Peggy was very sincere and compassionate following our misscarriage. She always calls back and answers questions in a timely manner.
How was your experience with John Isaacs?
I feel like he explains things well. He is laid back and makes you feel comfortable as a patient asking questions. I chose him because I was told he wasn't always as aggressive and we didn't want to do IVF however now we are wanting to look at taking that approach. We didn't think we would be finaicially able so I can only speak from IUIs.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Isaacs?
I feel like he really leaves decision making up to the patient so I would say know what you want to do or be frank and ask for his medical opinion.
Describe the protocols John Isaacs used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We have only done IUI, 6 cycles. We always did an ultrasound on day 12 and then would decide about what day to receive the HCG injection and then do the IUI the following day. The first couple of times I feel like we did it too late. The 3rd time was on target and resulted in pregnancy followed by a miscarriage at 11 weeks. The last 2 times seem to have maybe been too early.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Isaacs.
3 IUIs with ultrasound $1000 HCG injection $85 each cycle Clomid $10

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I was greeted by name with each and every visit, call, or email. I never had to remind the staff of who I was. The staff was always very warm and welcoming to me and my husband, laughing with us in times of laughter and consoling us in times of sadness
Describe your experience with your nurse.
All of the nursing staff was very kind and compassionate. They answered any and all questions and relayed information to and from the doctor very well. When my husband and I were disappointed with the lack of results after the first two transfers, they were very encouraging and did not let us give up hope.
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
Dr. Parry is very inviting and easy to talk to. He does not talk down to patients, nor does he talk in a manner that makes it hard for patients to understand the medical terminology. He ensures his patients have a thorough understanding of everything, and doesn’t hesitate to answer any and all questions a patient may have.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
I would tell prospective patients to listen carefully to what he has to say. While you may have your own ideas about what you want, he will let you know the best options to give you that, even if they differ. He will always do what is best for his patients.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
We paid about $8000 for IVF with ICSI, which included 1 fresh transfer and 1 frozen transfer. We later paid about $2000 for the 3rd embryo transfer. We paid for the medications separately through a mail order pharmacy, which cost us about $9000 after insurance.

How was your experience with Preston Parry?
Dr. Parry is by far the very best doctor I have every come to know. After seeing 2 doctors before him.... we knew we were finally in the right hands with Dr. Parry. He knows his reproductive medicine but also treats you as an equal and you can truly feel his compassion and want for you to conceive and goes well beyond his duties, I believe, to make you feel valued.

I have done so with many of my friends and aquainteces when sending them to Dr. Parry. “You WIlL NOT be disappointed with Dr. Parry” 100% positive you will be extremely pleased!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
I researched a lot of doctors and had been to 2 doctors before I found Dr Parry. He was the MOsT reasonable priced doctor out there. He also offers bundle discounts which gave me a lot of peace of mind.

Describe your experience with University of Mississippi.
It was nice. He was at the University of Mississippi’s clinic in Flowood at the time of my first consult. I would say it was Somewhat crowded. But I know he has since moved to his own facility in Madison so im excited to see the new building. I’m really proud of his accomplishments!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was the kindest and most compassionate doctor I’ve ever met. He truly listened to my concerns and answered every question that I had with such grace and empathy. I never felt like a paycheck to him.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
He was so kind and gentle. Made me feel very at ease. Always explained every step of the process and what to expect. I always left feeling fully informed and hopeful that “this treatment would result in a pregnancy”. Even when the odds were very low, he supported me and was a cheerleader of sorts.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
Call him today!! I owe my miracle baby to him and his team. Stop thinking about taking the next step and just commit
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We started off with a hysterscopy - where they fill the uterus with a saline solution and view the inner lining and the Fallopian tubes with a small camera. Then he got my consent to take part in a clinical trial (which has now been patented and named the Perryscope) of testing my tubes for patiency by passing a small air bubble through the tube and watching the results. He explained every step of the procedure and prepared me for any discomfort - which was minimal- prior to me feeling anything. After we competed this procedure, it helped him develop a plan of care that included Letrozol for ovulation, hcg injections to trigger the release of the egg from the follicle, and IUI. The worst part about the process was that I had to drive over an hour on day 12, sometimes day 14, day 17 and then day 21 every cycle. It felt like I was there very often. After the 3rd round of IUI, I finally had my first real positive pregnancy test and that pregnancy resulted in my now 3 year old daughter. When I went back for a consult to try for a second baby, he remembered me and my history and asked all about my child which left a lasting impact on me.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
Everything was out of my pocket. Insurance didn’t cover anything. All in all it was around $5000 total but completely worth every penny

Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My treatment began with a consultation visit, followed by blood tests and the Parryscope diagnostic testing. Surgery came next to remove cysts, fibroids, polyps, endometriosis, and an adhesion. 3 months post surgery, we began 3 rounds of IUI using Letrozole on days 3-7, sonogram on day 10 or 11, a trigger shot of Pregnyl or Ovidrel as directed by Dr. Parry, and then insemination.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
I initially paid a consultation fee. My insurance reimbursed that, due to the necessity of surgery. My insurance covered all of my testing leading up to my surgery. 3 months post surgery we began with 3 rounds of IUI. The 3 rounds of IUI with 1 ultrasound each time was $1000. We did have additional expenses of around $700 for the 3 doses of Letrozole, and about $360 for 3 injectables.

How was your experience with Preston Parry?
Dr. Parry explains everything to me in easy-to-understand terms. He is very caring and wants the best for my family and me. He is very personable and seems to care about our lives outside of our fertility issues. He is very knowledgeable about female health and has personal experiences that allow him to relate to what we are going through.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
Go in and just talk to him. He will wash away your fears the first time you meet with him.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Dr. Parry prescribed medicine for me to begin my period. I called the clinic on the first day of my cycle and they called in another medicine to help my eggs grow. I took that medicine on days 3-7 of my cycle. Then went into the doctor on day 12. When I went in, he did an ultrasound and noticed he needed to up my medicine. I took the higher dosage for a few more days and then went back in for another ultrasound. That dose seemed to work much better as I had an egg ready to ovulate on the second ultrasound. My husband gave me a shot 36 hours before my IUI appointment. Unfortunately, the first IUI did not work but the next round seems to be going much smoother as my dosage worked perfectly and I have just completed my second IUI and I am in my 2 week waiting period.

My nurse and everyone working for Dr. Parry were excellent. They [University of Mississippi] were all extremely caring and informative.... Dr. Parry has recently moved and started his own practice and I actually haven’t been to his new clinic yet. I hope to be able to make an appointment really soon. I have heard very good things about it and am following their progress on social media. If it is anything like what I experienced before the move I know it will be excellent.

Describe your experience with University of Mississippi.
Dr. Parry has recently moved and started his own practice and I actually haven’t been to his new clinic yet. I hope to be able to make an appointment really soon. I have heard very good things about it and am following their progress on social media. If it is anything like what I experienced before the move I know it will be excellent.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Parry was extremely personable an explained everything in detail. He would always listen to any questions we had and didn’t act like he was in a hurry to get to the next patient.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
My nurse and everyone working for Dr. Parry were excellent. They were all extremely caring and informative.
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
I had a great experience as a patient. As I said before Dr. Parry was always very kind and never in a hurry. He would always be sure to explain what to expect next. I always felt at ease whenever going to see him, because he has great bedside manners.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
I know I must sound like a broken record by now but I can’t stress it enough that Dr. Perry is a wonderful physician but also so down to earth. Some people might find him to be a bit odd, but I think that’s just his passion for helping people shining through.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did 3 rounds of juice. Before each insemination he would have me come in for an ultrasound of my ovaries. Then in about the 3rd day of my cycle I would take letrazol for a few days and then about 12 hours before insemination I would have to get a trigger shot. I would have to lie back for about 10 min after and then wait. None of the attempts were successful. Dr Perry then suggested that maybe surgery would be helpful for me because I had a few fibroids. So. Had the surgery done to remove the fibroids. I have not gone back in for another round of iui yet but I plan to really soon.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Preston Parry.
I had a one time fee that I had to pay up front and that covered the costs of everything minus the medications and shots.

One of the best things that I believe this clinic does is communicate quickly and effectively. If I call with a question they call back with an answer within 30 minutes. They always make me feel better about my questions and concerns.... You have to pay for IVF 2 weeks before you begin medications. The Whol IVF process costs $9,995, which doesn’t include medication.... Peggy is a God- send! She was the reason I chose to go with Dr. Isaacs because I knew I’d be working with her most of the time and she’s an excellent communicator and very empathetic.

One of the best things that I believe this clinic does is communicate quickly and effectively. If I call with a question they call back with an answer within 30 minutes. They always make me feel better about my questions and concerns.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt like a human because Dr. Isaacs did not jump in and y’all about his success numbers until I asked about them. I felt as if he cared about how to help me and not only talking about his outcomes.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Peggy is a God- send! She was the reason I chose to go with Dr. Isaacs because I knew I’d be working with her most of the time and she’s an excellent communicator and very empathetic.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call with results
How was your experience with John Isaacs?
I feel as if one of Dr. Isaacs strengths is that he explained the IVF process to my husband and myself in simple terms. He showed visuals to help explain how the retrieval and transfer processes work. One of his weaknesses I feel was the fact that he was very to the point (which my husband liked). I like someone that shows a little bit more emotion when talking about something so serious.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Isaacs?
Do not go in thinking he is going to “sugar- coat” the information. He is going to be straight forward with you in regards to your treatment plan and sometimes for a woman first starting on this journey it can be scary!
Describe the protocols John Isaacs used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We are beginning the IVF process at the end of April. After Dr. Isaacs got my AMH results back he chose my medication protocol. A few days later he added a medication to prevent OHSS.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Isaacs.
You have to pay for IVF 2 weeks before you begin medications. The Whol IVF process costs $9,995, which doesn’t include medication.

The cost was very reasonable, especially for the excellent care we received. They [U of Mississippi] were pretty flexible with scheduling appointments as well.... There was a “package” deal that included three IUIs with one follicle check per cycle for $1000. I believe additional follicle checks were $200. My meds were very inexpensive at the University Medical Center pharmacy. Ninety letrozole tablets were like $30, I think, and my Hcg trigger shots were $30, too, if I’m remembering correctly.

Describe your experience with University of Mississippi.

The nurses returned phone calls promptly and knew us by name. They were kind and knowledgeable as well.
How was your experience with Preston Parry?
Dr. Parry is kind and caring. You can tell he is very passionate about his work. He always took the time to answer any questions we had. I trusted his judgement completely and I don’t feel like he did any unnecessary monitoring or testing. I cannot think of even one negative thing to say about Dr. Parry.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Preston Parry?
Ask all of your questions because he will take the time to answer them.
Describe the protocols Preston Parry used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did three IUIs with Dr. Parry, all with letrozole days 3-7, follicle check on CD 10. If needed, additional days of letrozole and another follicle check. I took Hcg trigger shot when instructed.

Well my left tube is blocked so when we started doing IUI treatments we would skip a month or two depending on if my eggs were on my left or right side because the chances were greater if they were on my right side.
