Describe your experience with Coastal Fertility Medical Center.
Location and new building and surgery center are excellent. Very private and Dr werlin personally wheels you to your car after surgery upon waking up and excused to leave.
I wish they explained that a catheter was used during retrieval because of irration after.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He is warm, caring, funny. He remembers your name and your spouse. He has nicknames for you. He plays the rolling stones and loves funky socks. A very great bedside manner.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Great staff but felt like ordering meds or getting answers were delayed or not explained clearly.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
- Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
- Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
How was your experience with Lawrence Werlin?
As a Dr he is excellent. Takes time to meet and review and explain. Very compassionate. I wish he would have changed up my medicine or explained it more. The nurses are great but sometimes not very thorough and hard to stay in touch if their schedule changes.
The wait in the am is minimal and for the most part on time. He has very nice new building and surgery center. It's his own so no sharing or crammed quarters.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Lawrence Werlin?
Ask questions be your own boss and follow up.
