Dr. Schmidt was very helpful from our first consultation and he kept the humor in the whole process, which we appreciated.
The center is nice and staff was attentive but I would NOT recommend anyone go here after my experience. After a year and a half of trying to conceive and experiencing two early losses, I went to Ohio Reproductive Medicine hoping to get some answers. Dr. Schmidt was very optimistic telling me I was a healthy young woman and he didn’t foresee any reason why I would still be coming there a year later unless it was to discuss having a second baby... they did all the normal baseline testing on me, telling me I had been pregnant already so there was no need my husband needed to be tested. All of my test results came back perfectly normal. They immediately put me on Femara for “egg quality”. I only came in for a follicle scan once during each cycle. At one point I questioned when I was told my follicles weren’t ready yet because I was positive they had brought me in too late and I had already ovulated due to temp charting. Dr. Schmidt laughed it off saying he always tells women not to bother with the BBT charts because they just make you crazy but sent me for blood work just in case. And low and behold, I had been right. After 6 failed cycles of Femara, they put me on Follistim injections which were very costly. No further testing or explanation was offered. After two months of that we decided to stop and go see another specialist as we felt we were just being pushed to take expensive medications without any explanation. After 1 visit with the new specialist, they immediately ordered a panel of testing for my husband. From a simple inexpensive blood test we learned he has a genetic condition which is known for causing miscarriage and the only way we will likely successfully conceive is through selective IVF. We wasted a year and a half at Ohio Reproductive with Dr Schmidt and thousands on medications that were never even going to help all because he didn’t bother to test my husband.
We see Dr. Schmidt, he is very down to earth and has taken so much stress off our shoulders. He listens to your concerns and he explains every step of your journey.
Very friendly and made me feel very comfortable.
He is personable & listens very well.
He is informed on everything that can possibly be done in terms of fertility treatments. He was extremely supportive and sensitive to all of my needs and concerns. I could tell that he genuinely cared about my husband and I. I felt so fortunate the have him as my Doctor!
