While I spent more time with Dr. Ratcliffe's nurses than Dr. Ratcliffe herself (Thank you, Natasha and Bonnie!), I can still confidently recommend Dr. Ratcliffe. She is clearly a keen observer and a skilled medical practitioner. While she's definitely not a warm and fuzzy personality (I would call her brusque, which is not a bad thing to me), she's personable and very funny. I was also pleasantly surprised with the availability of Dr. Ratcliffe and her staff to provide advice and treatment even when the office was closed. I am now close to 9 weeks along and could not have been happier with my experience.
First time I went to see Dr. Ratcliffe she explained my condition which was great but she talked so fast I couldn't comprehend any of it. I just had a procedure done and she wouldn't explain anything to me the only way I knew about my results I had to call the receptionist and she explained everything to me. Dr Ratcliffe is rude and makes you feel that your not worth her time.
Let me start by saying this has been a long and difficult journey, both physically but more so emotionally and mentally. And unless you have gone through it,its hard to relate to infertility. We, like many others tried to start life out the right way...... Find yourself, get that "job" you worked so hard for, and become a professional productive member to society, then find that one right person who was meant for you and start a family. Unfortunately it all sounds like a grand plan, but when your older starting a family isn't always as easy as it's suppose to be..... So, that is where Dr. Radcliffe and her amazing crew came in. And, its been a long exhausting road as well, but the end results make all the sacrifices worth it!! The whole office is like one big family, they are all so helpful and supportive working together as a team. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Ratcliffe, her intelligence, professionalism, and her direct way of communicating. Yes she is a the "matter of fact" type, but that is what I like. I dont need anyone to candy coat anything. I want to know the specifics and correct information, even if its not what I want to hear, that way I can make an educated decision based on facts to hopefully get better results.... I also found her sense of humor to make uncomfortable situations (constant ultrasounds,ect) much easier and more tolerable, easing the situation. The medical staff in the office were all so incredible!! Very comforting and friendly as well through this whole process. Bonnie the IVF coordinator was very sweet and helpful, guiding us through the whole process, and what to expect. Ashley the secretary was always so sweet, answering all my calls with her pleasant voice and answering my crazy questions with her sweet demeanor. Then of course there are the medical assistants Patty and Jamie... What blessings and huge assets they are to this office! Like I said, its been a very long journey with multiple IVF procedures, blood draws, ect.. A massive emotional roller coaster, and through it all they were kind, supportive, knowledgeable, and very professional. They made every painful and emotional step much easier with their support and kindness! Always bubbly and happy making you feel at ease. I cannot thank them enough for their support through this whole process, what a difference having GREAT staff makes!!! I cannot say enough great things about these two!! And that leaves us where we are today. With positive results,a positive experience and our first little one on the way, YAY!!! Thank you to the team for your dedication and devotion to helping us achieve our goal... We are FOREVER grateful for everything, and cannot express our gratitude!!
My husband and I really liked Dr Ratcliffe and the office in general. We went to her after working with another specialist when my OBGyn recommended we switch. My OBGyn said Dr Ratcliffe doesn't sugar-coat things but she gets people pregnant. I was nervous for my consultation after reading reviews but we thought Dr Ratcliffe was funny and friendly and I had a lot of confidence in her because of other couples I know that were successful with her. I never had to wait long for my appointments. Whenever I called with a question I got an immediate answer. Patty was great and friendly during my visits. She helped put me at ease when teaching me to do my injections because I have a very difficult time with needles. We did a successful round of IVF.
After years of different doctors Dr Ratcliffe was the only doctor who I successfully carried with to full term
