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.

Felt like a human [at Kettering Reproductive Medicine] because the practice was small enough for he and the nurses to remember us and really give us personalized care. He also took the time to really explain things well to us, never making us feel rushed...Carol was the donor egg/IVF nurse. She felt like family to me. She was very informative, always kept us in the loop and was quick to call with any results

How was your experience with Mark Bidwell?
We came to Dr Bidwell on the heels of having seen a different RE, who told us that our chances of conceiving and carrying a baby to term were extremely low. The manner in which this other RE relayed the info to us was very off putting and we sought out a second opinion. Dr Bidwell spent well over an hour with us in our consultation going over test results, explaining them in a way we could understand, and he gave us options. He was willing to try several things before moving to donor eggs which is exactly what we wanted. During the course of all our treatments, some successful, some not, he was always very informative, compassionate and reliable.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mark Bidwell?
Dr Bidwell was pretty consistent with appointments running behind, but the care and attention he gave during your appointments made up for it ten fold
Describe the protocols Mark Bidwell used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Clomid w/timed intercourse - unsuccessful IUI - unsuccessful Donor Egg IVF - successful 2 out of 3 times
