Understand that the time limit you have with him at your monitoring appointments is not his choice. Schedule a one on one and let him know you need more time to answer questions or concerns.

He definitely knows how to treat you like a human but unfortunately the clinic pushes so many patients through at a time you become just a number.

Nurses are amazing! I always felt like they were just as invested in our infertility journey as we were.
Describe your experience with Brooke Army Medical Center.
The clinic has a very rushed feeling. Be prepared to be there REALLY early on monitoring days and know you will only have a few minutes with the doctor to discuss results. When you call the clinic you you will have to leave a message on the answering service which is frustrating but they are very good about calling you back before the end of the day.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Brooke Army Medical Center.
Monitoring appointments are very much like a cattle call. Everyone for that day is told to be there at the same time for labs and then you sit in the waiting room to be called back 3 at a time for monitoring.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Greene (Don) Royster at Brooke Army Medical Center.
