Show and Tell - A Little About Doc. H

Meet Dr. H. :)

Dr. H was raised in Arizona and graduated in 1984 from the University of Arizona with a degree in biology. He attended medical school at the University of Kansas and obtained his Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree in 1988. Following medical school, Dr. H completed his residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) at the University of Kansas in 1992.

During his time as a resident physician, Dr. H became interested in infertility medicine and decided to continue his studies with a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI). Over the next three years, Dr. H studied at the John Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1994, he became the co-director of Assisted Reproductive Technologies at John Hopkins. He served in this capacity until returning to Arizona to begin a private practice specializing in REI. He opened the R.H.C. in the fall of 1995.

In addition to serving as fertility specialist at his clinic, Dr. H is also a Clinical Assistant Professor of OB/GYN at the University of Arizona College of Medicine and serves as the director of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, overseeing the Embryology and Andrology Laboratories and the Assisted Reproductive Technologies Program. He lectures and teaches frequently on various topics related to reproductive endocrinology, has extensive research experience, and has published articles on infertility treatment.

Dr. H takes his time with patients, as he enjoys patient interaction and assisting couples in achieving resolution of their problems. He is kind and good-hearted, and will readily admit that he worries excessively about his patients.

So what do you think ladies??? Does Doc. H seem like a good choice for me?? :) I am excited to get in to see him and get this ball rolling.

I did get my blood work back and my FSH is 6.3 and my LH is 7.6 I also got the results from my DHEA and it is 603. I am having D (the bad OB) send me the results in the mail. So I have them for my appointment with Doc. H. Of course D tells me the results are not clear for PCOS. But according to my research having higher LH than FSH on cycle day 5 is another indicator of PCOS. I will be going over everything with Doc. H and see what he tells me. :) Sorry I have been such a bad blogger the past few days but I have been so negative that I did not want to bring anyone down.

My Show and Tell this week is introducing Doc. H
Go check out what the rest of the class is sharing for Show and Tell!

Sounds like you are on your way, hon! That's great!

I loved it that you watched the Mystery Diagnosis show. It kind of freaked me out...but at least they know about mine before hand so it won't be a 'surprise'.
