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.

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!

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.

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.

How was your experience with Preston Parry?

Trust Dr. Parry, even if you're nervous about what you will go through. He will be by your side the entire time.
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.

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.
