Thank you. I appreciate everyone's comments. I'm kind of in shock and my husband and I have spent the day trying to figure out what to do next and where to go. As all of you know going to a new clinic takes time and well I don't want to be doing IVF at 44. I don't have the emotional energy anymore.
Yes I can understand that he can decline care but I think we are most shocked that he didn't discuss his decision, allow us to voice our concerns or try to fix the breakdown in communication. When I expressed my anger via email and to the RPN - not rudley but I was upset he decided without speaking to us to cancel the cycle. He didn't try tore-establish trust or mende the relationship, when there was a conflict, he just cancelled our cycle. The best is that he did it over the phone and refused to allow us to speak - stating he'd put the phone down.
I'm an RN - ethically I think he was negligent, both him and his RPN.
Yes, I'll follow up with the College. I'm 43 - he knows what a delay in my care means to my chances of success.
Oh, he reimbursed us for everything! Even non-refundable deposits and medications we didn't purchase at his clinic. My husband and I felt like we were being paid off. Even if my complaint doesn't go anywhere I'll have had the chance to voice my upset.
He has enough complaints on the forums about his team - you think he'd want to try to improve the nursing care he provides.
This process is stressful enough.
