RE's?

Does anyone know of any good RE's in the central maine area? I have been to Coastal Women's in Portland.. and honestly, she refused to work with me until I lost weight to TTC. I've lost weight (not as much as I should but I am working on it!) and she still says weight is the number one thing I need to work on before TTC.

My dx is PCOS, amenorrhea, and hx of DVTs so I know seeing a RE is my best bet! Heck, even a really good OB/GYN that would be willing to go over clomid etc would be fantastic!

 thanks :)

  • RE = Reproductive Endocrinologist? I think there's a great endocrinology practice right down the road from Coastal Women's in Scarborough...

  • Not Central Maine, but an alternative that might be a better experience for you is Dr. Daniel Spratt with Maine Medical Partners (across from Maine Medical Center in Portland).  He is absolutely great!  He has a great way of instilling hope and his nurses are very responsive and are constantly communicating with patients.

    I've been to Coastal and really had mixed feelings there. She didn't want to look at me as a whole person, rather a simple condition of PCOS. It was frustrating to say the least. At least she did find that I have no evidence of pre cancerous cells and my uterus is healthy, but still.. was kind of a bummer!

     --I will check the other place out in Portland! I like when the doctor and nursing staff work as a unit to treat. I have a few other underlying issues that will need to be addressed.. IVF/IUI really are not an option as I can't take hormonal stimulants so I hope a doctor will be able to help me figure out my body!
