I came to this clinic while on vacation and I hurt my foot. The lady at the front desk was very nice and took all of my information. I was seen in a timely manner for the amount of people who were in the waiting area. The tech who took my x-ray was nice, but not very professional, after the x-ray she just opened the door to the x-ray room and said nothing. So I walked out and back into the room, assuming that was what I was supposed to do. The ARNP who "saw me" came in for not even two minutes to tell me I needed an x-ray and then after the x-ray stopped in for another minute and said my foot was broken and I need to take ibuprofen/tylenol to help the pain. There was absolutely no treatment given by the ARNP, she didn't even look at the foot, nor did she provide any solution to a broken foot. I was disappointed in the care that I received from her.

This professional team of medical associates were extremely helpful in diagnosing and curing pneumonia in my husband. They were all very polite and efficient. When we needed to return for a shot, the nurse was ready with shot in hand...no waiting! Two days later when I had fallen ill to apparently the same bug, they again quickly diagnosed the problem and sent me off with a prescription. We couldn't be more satisfied with the freindly service we've received. KUDO's to the UT After Hours team!

Tips & Advices
OB/GYNs learn to treat infertility as part of their standard education. OBGYNs who further their training in reproductive endocrinology and infertility are known as fertility specialists.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is a treatment where medication is used to replace hormones a woman's body does not create naturally. Women are prescribed either estrogen alone or a mix of estrogen and progesterone. The former is given to women who've had hysterectomies, while the latter is for postmenopausal women. HRT used to be a common treatment, but doctors have prescribed it less often in recent years, as concerns of negative side effects increased.
Endometriosis is a chronic condition where uterine tissue (endometrium) grows in areas outside the uterus. This can cause extreme pain, especially around menstruation and during sex. Other symptoms include infertility, chronic fatigue, and painful urination or bowel movements during menstruation. In addition, many women with endometriosis also have allergies, frequent yeast infections, or sensitivity to certain chemicals.
Morning sickness is a common pregnancy symptom that includes nausea and occasional vomiting. Despite its name, morning sickness can occur at any time of day. The exact reason for this condition isn't clear, although most believe it results from hormone changes affecting muscle contraction and relaxation in the stomach and intestines. Another theory suggests morning sickness is caused by an abundance of intestinal bacteria in pregnant woman.
OBGYNs can prescribe or perform the following types of birth control:
  • Contraceptive pills
  • Birth control shots
  • Implants
  • Diaphragms
  • Vaginal rings
  • Cervical caps
  • Intrauterine devices
  • Tubal ligation
  • Hysterectomies
Women do not need to see an OBGYN to obtain over-the-counter forms of birth control such as male condoms, female condoms, or sponges.
