After a miscarriage, I was very happy that the MD's at Physicians for Women were proactive and ordered a series of blood tests including Progesterone levels. Unfortunately, these tests must be taken at certain times of a women's cycle, and since my first post miscarriage cycles were all over the place, they were taken at the wrong time. Based on this one test, I was given a diagnosis and prescribed fertility drugs, when we had not even been trying to conceive, (the first pregnancy was a happy accident). The MD's motto was "if you want to get pregnant, I will get you there as fast as possible". I really was not sure that I wanted to take them right away, but with the loss and the pressure, I did. Once I realized on my own that the test was wrong, and thought that maybe I should be taking my temps, and charts to TTC, I repeatedly tried to contact the MD to explain that the levels were off, because the boodwork was done at the wrong time of the month, and only got a nurse, who was like - do you want the prescription or not? There was no follow up or ultra sounds, and I was really sick and uncomfortable. I wound up with a cyst and messed up 2 cycles on the fertility drugs that I never needed. This was too intrusive, and impersonal. It would have been helpful had they taken a natural approach and taught me how to chart my own fertility. If you want a more holistic approach - forget it. Way too much extreme intervetion without follow up.

I had my first child with Physicians for Women and am now pregnant with my second. While my doctor, Dr. Gilotti, is wonderful, unfortunately, the office itself is so busy there are long hold times to speak to anyone, as a working mom appointments in the morning, evening or weekends are very difficult to get, nurses take all day to return a call regarding a simple question and you cannot speak to a doctor regarding a problem unless your problem is deemed an emergency. I finally got sick of the frustrating, impersonal treatment by the office staff and nurses and left in the middle of my second pregnancy. I just think that my doctor's office should be available to address my valid concerns (about pain, fatigue, etc.) even if they are not emergencies.
