Do NOT go to Dr. Smikle Collin! I know you have to take these reviews with a grain of salt since infertility is such a sensitive subject, but please read on!
I do not need a doctor too hold my hand. I want a doctor who looks at the whole patient and the problem at hand.
Because of this, I looked past his poor bedside manner. I quickly discover his true intentions of practicing medicine….. MONEY!
I went to him for unexplained infertility. Instead of running a multitude of tests to determine the problem, he pushed for the most invasive and costly IVF.
When asked what I would do if I had triplets, I looked at my husband and said “I guess we would deal!”
Because I was not willing to abort one of the fetus, and because I was “too small” to carry triplets, he was not comfortable doing IUI (a far less invasive and affordable option).
My later research showed there was only a 3% chance of triplets with IUI….not a statistic he shared with us.
I don’t know his % of successful IVF, but if you want IVF and no other options he may be your guy. Just expect to be treated as a paycheck instead of a whole person.
Another consideration…. Why are there no other reviews for such an established doctor.
I think Dr Smikle probably paid to remove all the negative reviews.
