I'm writing an update to another review I posted. After seeing her for over a year, she recommended I see another RE for more advanced care. I was totally OK with that & followed her advice. In seeing the doctor she referred me to, I found that she missed a huge red flag in my blood work. She treated me, although this test indicated that the treatment wouldn't work & would make the end goal less likely with each passing day. I know we all make mistakes but recommend finding another Dr.

Saw Dr Soles 12/6/2017 rountine visit - had transvaginal ultrasound / told I needed endometrial biopsy - done without written informed consent on 12/7/2017. Developed symptoms of endometrial infection - Dr Soltes referred me to NP - today - 8 days after procedure, diagnosed with endometrium - serious adverse event . Also learned that endometrial thickness on transvaginal was 4 not 7 as told by Dr Soltes. DO NOT SEE this physician unless prepared for events such as the ones I ended up with!!
