My doctor sas gone for my last exam. It was done by his Nurse Practitioner. Welsh or Walsh. I like her. I felt though that the staff who drew my blood did a very poor job of it. I had my blood drawn 2 times in the past 1 month. Each time the lab technician coukd not get blood the first time, and had to draw from another arm, or my wrist- which hurts. My doctor is out of town and i may need a surgery to remove a uterine growth. No one called me to schedule it. Also, no one called me about my thyroid lab results. I had to look them up online. And, I am not sure what they mean.
We are always happy to hear that patients are pleased with our staff members. We work hard to provide top-notch care and a superior patient experience and we are disappointed when we are perceived to have fallen short. In light of that, there are numerous tests that patients must undergo during the early stages of the fertility journey. We suggest that patients schedule a follow-up appointment with their provider on completion of their testing so that the physician can deliver the results of all of the tests together versus having patients go through the inconvenience of multiple appointments. We apologize if this aspect was not more clearly explained when the list of tests to be completed was provided, and going forward we will be more thorough in our explanation of this step. That being said, we know that no one enjoys needles or having blood drawn but the highly skilled, third party lab techs we are staffed with do their utmost to make the process as painless and quick as possible. However, some patients are more difficult to draw from than others which, as mentioned, can lead to additional sticks. In light of that, if a patient needs future bloodwork done and would be more comfortable with an RCC staff member doing the draw we have several trained members to accommodate the request. The fertility journey can be exciting and overwhelming but we are always here to help any way we can and welcome patients to reach out whenever they need us! All the best!
The doctor and staff were very kind and helpful and provided a lot of information. My main frustration is with the insurance company and their requirement of prior authorization before approving my prescription.
We appreciate the kind words about our Doctors and staff. We do all we can to ensure a great patient experience from beginning to end. That being said, we are cognizant of the frustration that can stem from having to jump through the seemingly endless hoops associated with insurance and authorizations. Many insurance companies have strict requirements before they will pay, so it is our hope that our active and comprehensive participation in carefully reviewing insurance requirements before major treatments helps reduce the stress that patients experience. In light of that, if there are ever any questions or concerns we are more than happy to address them and invite patients to reach out to us at their earliest convenience. Best wishes to all on the journey to come!
The whole process of infertility is very daunting. Often you are not quite sure what to ask and where to even begin. I think we had some hit and miss experiences. We had some great nurses and not so great. We had some that were extremely thorough and others that rushed through everything. For the most part we never felt we had a full explanation of what was wrong exactly. We never really had a diagnosis. After several failed attempts we did get pregnant with Femara. What would have helped is maybe more explanation. As a patient going through something so unfamiliar you really do not know what questions to ask. We are incredibly grateful for the help that is provided but often felt a little in the dark. Maybe because we were not an extreme case I do not know but either way it is a delicate subject that was pretty hard. We honestly though could not be more grateful to be pregnant. As a patient...ASK anything you can think of.
I was really nervous for my transvaginal ultrasound. Everyone seemed pretty busy. I am happy they helped me achieve my pregnancy. I maybe could have had a better experience. The nurse he was working with that day, did not seem friendly. ..at all. .it wasn't Jeanette, it was a different one. I was happy Dr. Blauer found the gestational Sac. But he also said something about a cyst and did not go into detail, which until now, terrifies me. Overall it could have been a more warming experience.
Thank you for sharing your experience. We are so glad that you were able to achieve a successful pregnancy. That said, we apologize if the clinical process made you feel at all uncomfortable. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience further, and invite you to contact our office at your convenience. Additionally, we want to share some general information about cysts found during early OB ultrasounds to help put your mind at ease. Such common cysts - medically referred to as "corpus luteum cyst" - develop after ovulation occurs, as the follicles that released the egg fill back up with fluid. In fact, we can often determine from which ovary the patient ovulated, by observing the corpus lutuem (cyst formation). This is a normal occurrence that goes away within a few weeks. Generally, such cysts are not a cause for concern.
I really enjoyed working with Dr. Blauer. I felt like he was compassionate to our situation and he had a good sense of humor. When I first went to the office I was emotional and nervous for what he would say. We were previously told from another doctor that we had almost 0 percent chance of ever conceiving. We went to Dr. Blauer for a second opinion. I remember asking 'what if that does not work' and he replied 'you cry and we try again'. He made me feel hope that I could have a child where none existed before. We went to Dr. Blauer due to a friend's recommendation. The first fertility doctor we had seen had terrible bedside manner and made me want to quit trying. I now recommend Dr. Blauer to all my friends with fertility problems.
He has been such a great dr. Prob my only complaint would be not showing a lot of hope. Making me feel more nervous however I realized he is prob being as cautious as I am. It's a stressful process and he is wanting the best best outcome as much as I do. I have really liked Blauer and his nurse Jeanette. We have been very happy from our first appointment and still very happy.
Dr. Blauer was very understanding, polite, professional and very knowledgable. He made my husband and I feel very comfortable about this leap of hope/faith we are taking. It has definitely been hard to even think about infertility, but Dr. Blauer provided us with a thorough consultation of what steps we are going to take.
We thought Dr. Blauer was great to work with. He was always friendly and willing to answer all of our questions. We felt like he was very qualified and trusted his medical opinion. We loved his nurse, Jeanette that worked with us. She always made time to make sure I was comfortable and was very timely in answering any questions I had. We love and trust them both!
I have never had a Dr. and nurse spend time talking to me to get to know what is going on with my health like Dr. Blauer and Tammy did. In the past I have felt rushed out of the Drs. offices before I could even get a question in, and if I got to ask a question, I received an undetailed response. This experience was so different. My records were supposed to be sent to their office but never arrived, so Dr. Blauer asked me the right questions to get to know my history. He made me feel better about my current state (which I was emotional about), and refreshed my confidence that we are going to do everything to figure out how to fix it and get going immediately on the next steps. Tammy explained my medications and upcoming tests and wrote it down on a cycle chart so I do not forget what to do when. I left that appointment hugging my husband in the parking lot and said, 'He is going to help us!'. I am so happy Dr. Blauer is my Dr. now and that he has Tammy on staff. I also REALLY appreciate that they try to make things affordable. Thank you so much!
We were generally very satisfied with the visit. The only thing that disappointed us a little bit was that the staff at the front desk failed to give Dr. Blauer the printed medical documents that we put in their hands 4 days before our appointment. Otherwise, the doctor and clinical staff were all very good. We appreciate their care and help.
Thank you for your honest feedback regarding your experience at Reproductive Care Center. We are pleased to know that we could meet your expectations, aside from the anomalous incident regarding your medical documents. Please accept our apology for any inconvenience. We can say with confidence that such oversights are a rarity. On average we process 10 sets of patient records per day. All records are promptly scanned and attached to the patient's electronic medical record - providing almost instantaneous access for our doctors. All this to say that we have established protocols that ensure a timely delivery of records for our doctors' review. We are not sure what happened in your case, and again offer our sincere apology. We will certainly review our processes in an effort to prevent similar errors in the future. If you would like to discuss your experience with us in further detail, please contact our office at your convenience. We are always glad to find solutions to any potential problem.
