How was your experience with Douglas Austin?
Dr. Austin and his staff are all friendly and very professional. I was treated very well, and was always pleased with my care. I would still be receiving treatment from Dr. Austin if I hadn't recently moved to another state.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Douglas Austin?
Do your research, and don't be afraid to ask questions or get to doctor's opinion.
Describe the protocols Douglas Austin used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had 3 IUI's done. One with Clomid, and 2 with injectibles, multiple ultrasounds, and trigger shots. I did get pregnant on my second IUI, but had a very early miscarriage. I also went through several cycles of Clomid and femara, all of which were unsuccessful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Douglas Austin.
I paid $500 up front, and that covered a lot of my blood draws and apppintments. Then, once I used that up, I had to pay for my ultrasounds and blood draws. An IUI cost about $500 for the actual procedure, that included the sperm washing and the actual IUI. My insurance covered a small amount of ultrasounds. They cost around $150 per ultrasound, and my insurance covered about $50 of that is all.
