Our story begins almost ten years ago. After almost two years of trying to conceive, my OB / GYN referred me to an endocrinologist. It was there that I met Dr. Brown. He diagnosed me with PCOS, (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). With having that fertility issue, I could not ovulate on my own.
We decided to try intrauterine insemination (IUI) first. Dr. Brown felt confident that we would get pregnant in doing so. After the first IUI treatment, we found out that we were pregnant and expecting twins. Our twins were born February 8, 2002; Sierra and Parker.
Four years later, my husband and I decided it was time to try and add an addition to our family. We made a visit to see Dr. Brown again and only saw him for a short amount of time due to him leaving the area. We were saddened to see him go, but decided to proceed with that same practice. After several IUI rounds and 3 IVF treatments with miscarriages to follow all 3, we began to lose hope that we would not get pregnant.
In the fall of 2008, we learned that Dr. Brown was back in Jacksonville opening his own practice. We then decided to schedule an appointment with him in January of 2009. After going over our history and experience with the other practice, we decided to start off with an IUI round. After trying without success to conceive a handful of times with the IUI treatments, we finally decided to go with IVF.
In the fall of 2009 I had my egg retrieval and transfer. We found out in November of that year that we were expecting our little miracle, due in July 2010. Our healthy baby boy, Tripp, was born July 20, 2010.
Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Dr. Brown and his practice. He is truly in it for all the right reasons. From the moment we walked into his office, he and his staff have been warm and welcoming to us. Over the years we have become extremely close with him and feel that he is a part of our family. We strongly recommend Brown Fertility and Associates to any couple who would be in a position to consider fertility as an option to add to their family.
