Our journey to have our own child has been a trying one. After many miscarriages and failed IVF attempt at other clinic, I was on the verge of giving up because of my age. My husband however, decided that we should look for another doctor for IVF using donor eggs. We researched and found Dr Wood and Dr Adams at RSC. After the second attempt of IVF at RSC, I was finally pregnant with twins! We are very thankful to the staff at RSC for helping us to be parents. Both Dr Wood and Dr Adams are both very skillful and experience doctors. With the help of Dr Woods and Dr Adams, together with Angel and other nurses at RSC, we are now parents of two beautiful children!
Dr. Woods and Dr. Adams are very skilled in their professions. I am the single father of twin 9 year olds, largely because of their skills. This was the third clinic that I had tried in a three year struggle that reads like a soap opera. We only harvested 4 eggs in total, from the donor. They produced three embryos of which two were not of a high quality. And yet I now have healthy twins, a boy and a girl. You have to decide: what is more important, success or warm and fuzzy clinicians. I agree, they are not very personable. But they are very skilled. They do not want contact after the birth. I don't take it personally. That is their M.O. and I accept it. I am thankful that I have these two gorgeous kids, who are sometimes a challenge as all kids are, but that I adore.
Excellent physician. I had unexplained fertility and had seen multiple IVF docs (and miscarried many times) around the country before meeting Dr. Wood. He was the only one willing to think out-of-the-box about my situation. Now I am pregnant and couldn't be happier. Fertility is a case by case basis. Unfortunately, not everyone will get pregnant but I don't think that is always the docs fault. I love his office staff too.
Not happy with this clinic at all. Treated poorly and wish I had researched better. Interesting that the positive reviews are all submitted on the same day...In my experience this means they are not written by real patients. I do not recommend Dr Wood or his clinic for fertility issues.
“We struggled with infertility for years. It’s hard. And I’m sorry, unless you’ve gone through it you have NO idea how HARD it really is. So when you’re finally admitting you need help, you want someone who’s good, compassionate and has a proven track record. ALL of our research then pointed us to Dr. Wood. We have two boys now and we couldn’t be happier.”
We googled around and found the actual statistics that fertility clinics report to the FDA and we found that Reproductive Sciences Center had the highest in the area very consistently. That's why we chose them, and that's probably why we're pregnant! Thank you Dr. Wood & Dr. Adams!
We've used Dr. Wood twice now, both times successfully. I don't know what people are saying they felt like a number for. We've NEVER had that experience. Him, Dr. Adams and Angela are so caring and so "present" in every conversation, we have always felt they "get it" and care about our cycle like it was theirs. Every appointment we had Dr. Wood saw us and HE actually performed all the ultrasoudns, not some med tech or RN. Dr. Wood and his staff care... and it's very VERY obvious.
Staff was polite, friendly & organized. Doctor was cool, not exactly friendly, answered my questions with only vague short answers. I felt like a number, like he wasn't really trying to figure what was wrong, only trying the next-up kind of treatment. I did 4 cycles of meds & IUI, w/ 2nd and 4th cycles canceled b/c I didn't respond to the treatments as well, still not pg. A few times I had to wait a looong time for him to come in. Ungodly overpriced. A doctor I trust told me "oh, you went to the wrong one." I wish I had known that before.
