The entire nursing staff [at Audubon Fertility] has been spectacular. They answer all of my questions regardless the time of the day and are always supportive whenever I'm feeling stressed about the process. If I forget something they have previously explained to me, they are always very nice to walk me through it again to make sure i understand everything completely. They all know me by name and really take the time to ask me how we're doing and give support if we need it.

Describe your experience with Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic is located in a renovated shotgun house so it feels comfortable and homey. It is conveniently located in the city and is right next door to their surgery center were all the procedures take place. The only weakness is the lack of parking in the area but this is true most places in the city.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My experience with the front staff, nursing staff and Dr. Wells has been nothing but personalized and comfortable. They know me by name every time I come for an appointment and feel like they understand the journey me and my husband are going through. They all take the time to answer all of my questions no matter the time of day, and really individualized my treatment cycle to my and my husbands needs.

How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
Dr. Wells has been by my side through this whole process. I am currently in an IVF cycle and scheduled to have my retrieval this week. After 3 failed ovulation induction cycles, and 1 failed IUI, we decided to proceed with IVF. Dr. Wells walked us through all of our options and explained the entire procedure in detail. She explained her success rates in detail and what we should expect with this IVF cycle. She is always available to address any concerns or questions we have and ease our anxiety through this process. She was quick to adjust my medications when my U/S were performed to optimize our upcoming retrieval.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Go see her!
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I am 30 years old and had not done any pervious treatment cycles prior to seeing Dr. Wells. After the initial testing of myself and husband, we learned we have "unexplained infertility." Dr. Wells started me off with clomid and timed intercourse so not to start with anything too aggressive. We did 2 cycles with clomid, OPKs and timed intercourse. After those cycles were not successful, she suggested switching to letrozole. Dr. Wells explained the slight increased success with IUI but my husband and I decided to do one more timed intercourse cycle. After 3 failed cycles, we decided to do an IUI with letrozole. Dr. Wells and her NP Jamie walked us through the IUI process seamlessly. After the IUI was performed and I was laying in the exam room, they dimmed the lights, gave me a heated blanket and played relaxing music to ease the stress and make it feel more comfortable. Unfortunately the IUI was not successful, and after speaking with my husband, we decided to proceed with IVF. We met with both Dr. Wells and the IVF coordinator and they went through every detail with me including the risks and expected outcomes for us. I was scheduled to have a hysteroscopy on my stim start date and began the process. I am currently on cycle day 12 of stimulation and am scheduled to have a retrieval in the next few days. I cannot express how happy I am to be under the care of Dr. Wells and her staff and feel like they did not rush us into anything we were not ready for.

Audubon Fertility has many strengths. First, their office is clean, welcoming, easy to travel to and the surgery center is directly nextdoor. The main strength of the practice though is not the building.... it's the people. The staff is top notch. They call/email you back within minutes sometimes and you never feel rushed. I can't think of any weaknesses for the office...My IVF coordinator was Mandy Poche and she was such a pleasure to work with also. She created my IVF schedule for me, explained all of the medicines, and taught me how to give the injections. She was extremely helpful at keeping everything organized and keeping me calm.

I can't think of any weaknesses for the office...
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I've never felt like a number at Audubon Fertility. From my very first visit with Dr Wells... she and her entire staff treated me wth such care and compassion. I've emailed the nurses at all hours of the day and they respond back to me promptly.. even on weekends.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The first nurse I worked with was Jamie Reyes. She is phenomenal. She has also gone through fertility treatments so she truly understands your concerns and keeps you calm throughout the entire process. She is an excellent nurse. She also responds to emails at all hours of the day and even on weekends. My IVF coordinator was Mandy Poche and she was such a pleasure to work with also. She created my IVF schedule for me, explained all of the medicines, and taught me how to give the injections. She was extremely helpful at keeping everything organized and keeping me calm. Mandy called to break the bad news to me when I had a chemical pregnancy and I don't think she could have been any kinder on the phone. She was so compassionate and took her time explaining to me what a chemical pregnancy (something I had never heard of) was. It was such bad news to receive but I vividly remember how kind Mandy was on the phone. Brittany Melancon is the nurse who calls you back from the waiting room, weighs you, takes your blood pressure and gets you settled in the room before you see Jamie or Dr Wells. She is bright, cheerful and very friendly. Katrina is who draws blood. She has an amazing ability to keep you calm while she does her job and she is so great at drawing blood..you barely feel it. Ann works at the front desk and she has been very helpful with billing. There have been a few times when labcorp has sent a bill to me instead of Dr Wells and Ann is quick to take care of the situation. I could go on and on because the entire staff is amazing.
How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
I've been a patient of Dr Wells for almost one year and I can't say enough good things about her. She is patient, kind, trustworthy and extremely knowledgeable. I've loved working with Dr Wells and have completed trusted her the entire process.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
I would tell any new patient to trust the process. A month seems like a year when you are going through fertility treatments....but Dr Wells and her staff know what they are doing.i would suggest trusting their judgement. They have your best interest at heart.
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I consulted in June. I did not get a cycle in July. I then took Progesterone to induce my cycle. I used injections (follistim)and had an IUI in August. This was not successful. I had another IUI in September (again with injections) Not successful. We then decided to move to IVF. In October I had stimulation and egg retrieval. I transferred one frozen 5 day Blast (graded good/good) in November. It resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Dr Wells suggested that I have one natural cycle before transferrring again. My cycle did not start in January. I took Progesterone in Feb. my cycle started. I had a hysteroscopy in Feb and Dr Wells removed a few small polyps and performed an endometrial scratch. I transferred two day 5 blasts (both embryos were graded fair/fair)on March 10th and I and currently 10 weeks pregnant with twins.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lindsay Wells.
In 2016 I spent 24k- this includes everything from Day 1. initial visit, bloodwork, injection medicine (for two IUIs), two IUI procedures, IVF medications, egg retrieval, egg transfer. In 2017 I have spent approximately $5,000-$6,000 for a second transfer, anesthesia, surgery center fees, etc

Describe your experience with your nurse.
The entire staff at Audubon are wonderful. They are compassionate and answer all questions. They really treated me as an individual and not a number with a checkbook. They always called back quickly and were very friendly.
How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
Dr Wells went above and beyond to find answers to why I was miscarrying. She provided more information and ran many more tests compared to other places. Within one month of seeing her, I received more information that 3years at another location. I did not receive good test results however, Dr Wells walked through every step with me and made follow up appointments for me with genetic specialists. She then spoke with those specialists to determine the next course of action for me. She adapted quickly when things/drugs were not working properly. She was always upfront and honest. I saw her at EVERY visit. She was available via phone and email when I had questions and worries. She has an excellent bedside manner and has a way of making you feel at ease.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Go see her, don't wait!
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Before all my test results were completed, I took Follistem with a trigger and IUI. It didn't work. However, shortly after Dr Wells called and was surprised to find out I had a Balanced Translocation. Which answers so many questions. I also had a low egg reserve. She explained I would need IVF with PGD testing to ensure a normal embryo. She also prepared me for the possibility of needing a donor egg if we decided to go that route. She increased the Follistem to max dose but I only produced one egg after 2-3 injections. The egg retrieval was cancelled. I did not take any further drugs and later found out I was pregnant with triplets. She walked through every U/S with me, kept up with weekly blood work before releasing me to OB at 11 weeks. I delivered 3 healthy babies at 35 weeks.

Very good at answering emails, easy to understand instructions, clean office and well decorated (I ended up paining my living room the same color as their office because I liked it so much). Overall very good experience

Describe your experience with your nurse.
Jamie was amazing. At first I was a little upset at never seeing the doctor but Jamie answered every question with ease and was just as good! Everyone is so incredible friendly!
How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
I only saw Dr. Wells as a patient once for my consultation and another time before a minor surgery. All other times we saw the nurse practitioner who would relay messages and treatment plans back and forth. We did understand that we were not as seriously effected by infertility as some other patients there, but a few times it was a bit disconnecting for me. Overall when we did see her she was very friendly and knowledgeable.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Don’t expect to see the doctor every time. Go in with an open mind and be prepared to take off a lot from work. But everyone there is so sweet that they make it all worth it!
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Prior to seeing Dr. Wells I was put on clomid (up to the highest dose) and suffered a miscarriage. My cycles were still really off. For my initial exam they discovered my uterine lining to be thick, so they performed a hysteroscopy to test the lining and my tubes which came back ok. However I contract d c diff from the hospital and couldn’t resume for a few months. When we did resume, I was started on letrozole which did nothing for me. We then paired it with injections which also did nothing for me, even with a push. I had one follicle mature so the NP gave me a trigger shot just in case- and I ended up getting the pregnant! Then they saw me every few weeks for ultrasounds

Describe your experience with Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic staff is caring and knowledgeable. It's a very warm and inviting waiting room and office. I didn't find any real weaknesses while I was there other than the parking. The parking lot is around the corner and located right behind an abortion clinic where protesters frequent. It can make for an uncomfortable walk to and from your appointment.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Some visits would move very quickly but I appreciated the availability at any time of the day. When I was experiencing a miscarriage they would answer our calls anytime and were always so caring and supportive of us.

What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Don't be afraid to ask questions and try to understand every little bit of the process.
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I was waiting for a cyst to decrease in size to be able to start treatment and rather than having to waste a cycle and wait for another one, we started folistem as soon as the cyst was gone. After that we did a trigger shot which resulted in pregnancy. Unfortunately, it resulted in a miscarriage. Dr. Wells performed my D&C and sent tissue off for genetic testing which showed that my egg caused multiple chromomosomes.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lindsay Wells.
It was $800 up front that covered the cost of your visits and ultrasounds. The medication was a separate cost

Describe your experience with Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
We are in the very beginning of our infertility journey. Our experience thus far has been exceptional. The front office staff is always very nice and understanding. The nurse we have seen has always been very sweet and compassionate. We have seen Dr. Laborde regarding my husband and we have really trusted his opinion.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Laborde sat down with us and spoke on our level. I felt that he explained our situation in the best way possible and we appreciated his hopeful but also realistic opinion. He was honest and did not fill us with false hope.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
We have only been acquainted with a young lady that brings us back and takes his blood pressure, weight etc. She has always been so friendly and refreshing.
How was your experience with Eric Laborde?
My husband's sperm count is severely low. Dr. Laborde was compassionate but also honest with our realistic course of action. He remained hopeful but also did not fill us with false hope, which we as a couple struggling with infertility truly appreciate. Specifically, when my husband asked if starting clomid would increase his count enough for IUI, Dr. Laborde told us "He has seen it happen, but it is a huge jump to get to that point". I appreciated the honesty more than he will ever know. We now know what our course of action will most likely have to be and we know what to work towards.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eric Laborde?
Ask as many questions as you need, he will answer honestly.
Describe the protocols Eric Laborde used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We ran a preliminary semen analysis on my husband. We were told that the result count was severely low. Dr. Labored ordered a second semen analysis and also ordered blood work. The blood work came back showing my husband has a low testosterone level. Dr. Laborde started my husband on Clomid, explaining why he could not start him on any kind of testosterone booster (because it would diminish the little count he does have). He explained that the hope is that Clomid will help his body naturally produce testosterone and in turn MAY increase his sperm count. He did tell us that we have quite a way to go before we would be eligible for IUI but that IVF would still be possible for us. He requested that we have blood work done a month after taking clomid and to return to do a semen analysis and to see him after 3 months of the medication. We are still in that process. We are looking forward to the next meeting.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eric Laborde.
155.00 each semen analysis. I am not sure about the actual visit with Dr. Laborde, my husband has primary and secondary insurance that seemed to have covered it.

Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have Stage IV Endo, one ovary and a .7 AMH, she looked at my chart and immediately came up with a nee protocol. She put me on an antagon protocol and at every ultrasound appointment adjusted my meds according to how my body was responding. It felt very personalized. I had my retrieval yesterday which resulted in 15 mature eggs, am still in the middle of waiting on embryos growth reports.

How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
Dr. Wells is WONDERFUL. She is everything you would ever want in a physician: caring, compassionate, smart. I was never rushed when with her. There are few people who want to see me pregnant as much as Dr. Wells does.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Don't hesitate. Call and make your appointment today. You will be in the best hands. (I have given this advise to many of my friends!)
Describe the protocols Lindsay Wells used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IUI with letrozole IVF (1) with gonal F / menopur IVF (2) with gonal F / menopur - nothing lead us to believe my second cycle would be different from my first but we were only able to produce one embryo IVF (3) Lupron flare plan - because I produced so little during the second cycle a new protocol was used. Unfortunately, I still only produced one embryo.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lindsay Wells.
Dr. Wells physician fee is approximately $5000 but she waives her fee if your first round of IVF is unsuccessful and you opt to do more rounds with her.

Describe your experience with Audubon Fertility & Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic was great. No complaints. He has moved to a new clinic now, though, and is no longer at Audubon Fertility.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was attentive and nice. I just didn't feel like her remembered much about me during our visits and had to remind him what we had and had not done.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff at Audubon Fertility is great. They always return phone calls and are fully prepared to answer questions.
How was your experience with Ron Clisham?
He was nice, i just didn't get the feeling that my treatment was very tailored to me. During my time with him, I was not satisfied. However, having been through so much more and several other doctors since, I do not feel like it was his fault that we were not successful.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ron Clisham?
Know your plan of action before. Do not go in blind or unprepared. Also, take notes during your visits. You may need to remind him of some things.
Describe the protocols Ron Clisham used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did 2 months of oral meds, one of those we did an IUI. Then we did 3 months of injectables with IUI's.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ron Clisham.
I have no idea what our total costs were with Dr. Clisham. Probably somewhere around $10,000

Dr wells [at Audubon] ran blood work which checked hormone levels and egg quality as well as a sperm analysis on my partner. After everything checked out fine, she diagnosed me with unexplained fertility. she suggested we try IUI first and if it didn't work we would move on to IVF. I had 3 IUIs. For all three, I was prescribed clomid. Last 2, I injected Follistim and a trigger shot. First 2 IUIs didn't work, third try was successful.

[Audubon's] strengths- small, personable, and not as busy weakness- longer wait for results, parking...when i was scheduled for a laparoscopy they messed up and missed the paperwork deadline and treatments had to be pushed back almost twice...She [Dr. Lindsay Wells] is a great Dr. She uses a very simple procedure. She goes out her way as well. But after one transfer not working she didn't want to do anything different and I did not want the same negative results repeated...Very simple compared to my other Dr. We simply did one inject-able and one pill. No patches

She spoke to me like a friend, not a patient.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Debbie and the rest of the nursing staff (Kim and Mandy) were wonderful. I have nothing but good things to say about them.
How was your experience with Lindsay Wells?
She was definitely very caring and compassionate, and made me feel like she was on my side. While I really liked her bedside manner, I think her treatment could have been more aggressive, and she could have explained everything to me better. I am a patient who likes to know exactly what's going on, and I want to be as educated as possible about my treatment plan.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lindsay Wells?
Be prepared to ask lots of questions - she will give you the information, if you ask her specifically.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Lindsay Wells.
Around $40,000 for 2 cycles of IUI, and 2 IVF cycles.
