Describe your experience with UT Medicine Fertility Center.
Clean, easy to get to, great hours, calm atmosphere
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Hands down he treats me like I was his own family member. He laid it all out even taking my type A science geek personality into account when performing procedures by keeping photos of exactly what fibroids they removed etc. He has personally called me several times and always takes the time to answer any questions I may have.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I have not had a bad experience with any nurses. They are all so professional and compassionate. I miss the staff when I'm not frequenting the office.
How was your experience with Randal Robinson?
Excellent communicator, goes through all of the options and any evidence basis behind our options, he truly treats me as a family member when helping us make any decisions.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randal Robinson?
Relax you are in great hands. If you have questions ask he is very patient and answers them all.
Describe the protocols Randal Robinson used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Pretty conservative. I had no hormone issues so I did natural cycles IVFs. I start my PIO injections (1ml IM) a week before the transfer along with low dose estrace to thicken the lining. He also does not transfer more than 1 embryo at a time in anyone under 35 years of age to prevent a high risk pregnancy as well as long term health complications multiples can have. I take the estrace daily along with the PIO then go for my blood HCG on day 10 (my embryos are 5 days old) then 3 days later another blood HCG. Then I stop the estrace and continue the PIO injections daily until 8-10 weeks. Then he switches me to progesterone suppositories.
