Dr Hill's review

Hi, Me and my husband are extremely happy with the services and care provided by Dr. Hill and his team..We went in for some fertility tests initially and were impressed by the professionalism and the efficiency of the staff. I can understand why some people might be taken aback by the fast way of talking of especially Dr Hill as he doesn't waste any time making small talk. For us, that was not a big deal as we only cared about the quality of care and the knowledge of the Doctor. I went in for multiple blood tests and ultrasounds as we started our treatment. Everything was always on time, there was hardly any waiting time for the tests.The visits to the Doctor's office took less time than a grocery store visit. The whole staff works like a well-oiled machine. Their patient portal is also extremely useful. They post results the same day with detailed instructions for the next visit. They are also always available for questions on the phone. We conceived after our first IUI, but even if we hadn't, I would have given FCNE Reading 5 stars. They are an excellent facility and I highly recommend them.

Rushed...

We expected more attention and less of a rush. Since the egg retrieval we noticed a rushed manner to get us out there. Not really polite answering the questions either. During this very sensitive time in our lives we expected a little more of a human care and not being treated as a number. Very disappointed!

Two Stars

Dr. Hill was very dismissive of my questions and concerns. Bedside manner is not his strong suit. Definitely no warm fuzzies. Infertility is an incredibly stressful issue to begin with, so to sit down with someone who has the power to change your life but basically brushes you off is heartbreaking. If you are the least bit overweight, he will tell you that it would be medically unethical for him to provide any assistance in getting pregnant. I found him to be very rude and judgmental. There are many other REs out there who are supportive and encouraging!

Five Stars

Dr Hill is very knowledgable and can talk quite fast, which can be overwhelming for your first visit. However, you can ask any questions you have and he is very respectful -- not making you feel silly for asking question that feel silly. I like that very much. Also, he doesn't sugarcoat results that aren't what were hoped for. But he has a lot of experience and knowledge so he will tell you your options.I was referred to him from my obgyn, whom I turst very much.
