Ratings for Dr. William C. Dodson
Dr Dodson and his team always took time to listen and answer questions. My 1st IUI I ovulated early. 2nd IUI resulted in a loss of twins at 18 weeks. No fault of theirs, but of an incompetent cervix. We did IVF to insure one baby( less stress on the cervix) I was pregnant the first round! They were amazing, competent. I can never thank them enough. However, pinnacle in hershey had a better high risk team of Dr.s so we switched there after the pregnancy
I've seen multiple RE's in our quest to have a family. Dr. Dodson has been the most caring and attentive RE yet. I had success through his clinic, after IUI, and welcomed our son in 2012. He reassured us through the whole process and was our cheerleader in such a delicate time. Now that we are hoping to grow our family, he is walking side by side with us. At my first visit, he opened his folder and let me know that he did his "homework" on me. He came up with a plan and asked me to follow it. When I need to ask a question or he has test results to share, he calls me. He doesn't force me to wait for an available appointment. He takes time to talk to me and reassure us in each step. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
This dr is very incompetent. He wont let me speak to an embryologist about my failed ivf. Everything he said contradicted what other drs say. He gave me no hope. He was not open to try different and new things.
Dr. Dodson, Dr, Legro and their staff are wonderful and helpful. They supported me the first weeks of pregnancy and during my miscarriage. Their staff caught a mistake my OB made and for that I am for ever grateful. Can't say enough good things about my experience.
Dr. Dodson was great! I had to have induced ovulation and I got pregnant the first month seeing him. I unfortunately lost the baby and after my d&c Dr. Dodson took my call right away during his busy hours and talk to me for 15+ mins. He then scheduled an appt. for my husband and I to come discuss our options moving forward. Three months later I was pregnant again and was closely monitered with 2 ultrasounds (I also was closely monitored with the first pregnancy) and now I have a healthy 8month old little boy!
This is my first time w/IVF. My husband and I have male factor infertility. Dr. Dodson and his staff in my opinion are wonderful. He is very much to the point and is matter of fact, but he is patient and compassionate and explained everything to a T for us. He knows how scared I was going into this cycle and was always reassuring to me and made sure I was comfortable. Bottom line I am not looking to make a friend w/my RE I am looking for someone who is intelligent and knows what he doing in his field to accomplish a safe process and pregnancy.
If you are looking for a Dr. who is experienced w/ RPL and/or secondary IF; Dr. Dodson is not your dr! He does NOT think outside of the box and goes by textbook only. At my first appt he said to us, "the latest discovery in our field was 25 years ago; IVF." Really very disappointing for the Hershey Medical Center who seems to be up on their research and doing their own studies/research. He has told us we can either do IVF or just keep on trying. He had no answers for us! I have since gone to a different doctor and am homozygous for MTHFR a1298c mutation & I have luteal phase defect. The MTHFR he never tested for and when I asked about possible LPD he dismissed it completely. He told me "you're getting pregnant, its not that."
My husband and I saw Dr. Dodson Oct or Sept 2010. Great doctor!! Hoping to do an IVF cycle 2011. We found out from Dr. Dodson that my husband has sperm antibodies, which is affecting the ability for us to get pregnant. I am also having trouble ovulating and have an elevated FSH level. Though hard to hear, Dr. Dodson thinks the only way we will be pregnant is through IVF. My husband was always hesitant about IVF, but after meeting with Dr. Dodson, he has a different outlook on IVF. Hoping to see you in March, Dr. Dodson!!! Hoping for our miracle baby. John and Kathleen
