Anyone know a good urologist?

Ugh. I'm convinced there are no good urologists in our area. My RE who first did hubby's SA and then referred him to a urologist once we got the poor results back. This guy barely gave hubby the time of day, hardly did any exam and then just said to take a multivitamin and come back in a few months. Hubby was completely deflated about being dismissed.

So he found his own urologist who was supposed to specialize in male infertility. After his appointment today, hubby is doubting whether this guy specializes in anything. This dr did seem to do a thorough examination and said he does not have a varicocele (which I'm not sure is a good thing or bad thing, if he had one at least it would be fixable).

But when they started talking about next steps and solutions, hubby asked about IUI. This guy's response? What's IUI?

Umm, how can someone who says they specialize in infertility not know what IUI means. I mean, upon clarification it appeared he just didn't know the acronym, but still. It's not like IUI is some arcane term or pure blogging leet-speak.

So who knows what our next steps will be. This dr did do another SA and we should get the results back in a few days. I go back to the RE in a few weeks. The dr. also mentioned putting hubby on clomid. I guess I did it for a few months so maybe he can try it now?! Anyone have any experience with putting men on clomid?


  1. Aye! We found a guy who is great, but it's a bit of a commute. There is the MF specialist at Cornell that people rave about. LA to NY is a little far right now.

    Clomid is commonly used to treat MF, too. I'm not sure of the benefits, but I've heard of it many times. Sorry it wasn't a great experience.

  2. What's IUI?!?! That's crazy. I don't know of any urologists at all, but I hope you can find a good one if you end up needing it.

    I've heard of men taking clomid, but I'm afraid I don't know anything about it, sorry!
