Describe your experience with Kettering Reproductive Medicine.
Strengths: Wonderful, compassionate nurses, staff, and doctors. Willing to answer questions via email. Very organized.
Weaknesses: I honestly can't think of any.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Bidwell was very compassionate, understanding and thorough. I never felt like a number to him. He knew our history and showed he cared.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff is WONDERFUL! Very sweet and always willing to answer my questions.
How was your experience with Mark Bidwell?
Dr. Bidwell, out of all the fertility doctors we have seen, has been the best. I liked that he was the one performing almost all of the ultrasounds and procedures. The one time we had a transfer without him, was the one that stuck. Even so, I appreciated his attitude and positive manner over the other doctors I have seen. He also did just recite a line, he would chat with us and make us feel better about things.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mark Bidwell?
I don't know about advice, but choosing him is a very good choice.
Describe the protocols Mark Bidwell used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I've gone through so many different treatment protocols, it would take a long time to remember it all! I remember him increasing my dosages of follicle stimulating hormone to try and work with the diminished ovarian reserve. We ended up doing a donor cycle after speaking with him about how things weren't going so well with my own eggs.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mark Bidwell.
I can't recall. Insurance covered everything up until diagnosis, then it was out of pocket. Donor eggs was the most expensive thing we did.
