28/06/14 5 5 5 5 I was very young, when I was referred to Dr. Henry. I had irregular periods, and he did a lot of testing. He mentioned that when I was ready to conceive, I would need Clomid. Years later, I went on to have my Clomid baby (1st round) and an IVF baby after him. Dr. Henry was my first reproductive physician, and I am eternally grateful for his help.

21/05/14 3 5 3 4 I would not recommend this physician. I was referred due to multiple miscarriages and am not (at least yet) a candidate for IVF or other fetility treatments and I found his bedside manner to be a little lacking. When I asked about the outcome for tests he said "we'll see when we get to it" and regarding genitic testing I wanted more information than that response. Also the nurses were supposed to call with the insurance code and costs so I could find out how much I would need to pay out of pocket and they never called. When I followed up they told me to call the hospital but didn't provide a number or an area to call. I'm going to find someone else.

06/09/13 4 5 5 5 I was extremely nervous for my first appt. with him. I felt very comfortable and finally had some hope after meeting with him. i felt like i found the perfect doctor when i left. He listens so all my concerns. i have only had one bad experience with one nurse of all my visits. I dont think it was even Dr. Henry's nurse. He is wonderful.

15/08/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Henry removed several cysts on my ovary and I got pregnant for the first time 2 months later at the age of 39! Dr. Henry has a caring bedside manner and a wonderful dry wit. I had only one ovary to begin with when I came to him, and hardly any eggs. No follicles firing, really not a chance. Yet here I am, expecting my first! The staff is organized, knowledgeable, friendly and they seem to work well together. Most of my interactions were with Lauren (nurse), who took extra time to help me find more inexpensive meds, and always called me back promptly regarding any question I had, no matter the level of importance. I would think that it's pretty common in this business to burn out. You either shatter someone's dreams or give them the ultimate gift on a regular basis. In addition, I'm sure the patients are constantly challenging the personal ethics of the staff and physicians. That said, there are NO burnouts in this office! Don't waste any more time, make an appointment!  Respond

06/05/13 2 3 1 1 Extremely disappointed in my care. I would never recommend this physician. I believe infertility is a very sensitive issue and I find how I was treated to be awful. I had to have emergency surgery because of an implantation in a blocked tube which is an issue in itself but afterwards at post op appt his exact words were "oh yeah you are the one I said the tube wasn't blocked and it was" I felt humiliated on several occasions for asking questions so I shut my mouth and I did what I was told. I ended up with emergency surgery and my chance of getting pregnant cut in more than 1/2. Trust the comments you read it's not worth it.  Respond

20/03/12 4 5 4 5 Dr. Henry is very positive. Always used "when you get pregnant" not "if" like others I have seen. He is straight forward and if he doesn't know something, he flat out tells you. He DOES NOT beat around the bush. I have less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant without IVF. Even though it is very expensive, I would not go to a different doctor even if I could get a price break! I've read some of the negative comments and he does refer you to someone else if he is not the right person to talk to (that should not be a negative!). As for the nurses, sometimes it did take a couple of calls to get all the information, but with all the people they see how can they know your case specifically each time you call.  Respond

07/01/11 3 3 2 2 Dr. Henry is a very calculating person. I was struggling with PCOS and infertility and during our first appointment, Dr. Henry only addressed my husband and rarely spoke directly to me or made eye contact with me. I told him I was concerned about the side effects of PCOS and wondered if there were things I could do to manage them (acne, weight gain, etc) and his answer was, "That's not the kind of doctor I am. Go to your regular practioner for those questions." I decided that if he didn't want to take the time to help me with my basic questions, then I didn't want to spend my time and money at his clinic. Not a friendly doctor.  Respond

25/02/09 1 2 1 2 I would advise anyone who is struggling with infertility to save your time and money and go somewhere else. The nurses made my cry on more than one occassion, when I would call with questions and they refused to answer them. Their standard response was "You need to come in and see the Doctor." It was a 1 hour drive for me to the office, not to mention the time I had to take off work. And I always had to keep reminding them of my treatment plan and meds. Definitely did not give me much confidence in the care they provided. In one instance, I was prescribed a medicine that cost $50 out of pocket, and then the nurse forgot to tell me when to use it. Needless to say, I switched doctors soon after. Also, it was very difficult to get a straight answer from the doctor himself. No one needs to have addtional stress placed on them by their doctor's office when they are already dealing with infertility. I would recommend that you avoid this office!

23/11/08 5 5 5 5 Dr. Henry and his staff were great and I would recommend him to anyone. When I miraculously got pregnant months after stopping treatments, Dr. Henry personally did two ultra sounds (so that I had visual evidence) and his staff worked the bill so the insurance company paid for them.  Respond

25/06/08 2 3 2 5 Although I personally liked Dr. Henry, I do find it interesting that there is absolutely no follow-up from his office on the patients whose stories do not end with pregnancy. Even my veterinarian calls to see how my dog is doing after an appointment.  Respond
