He talks too fast, make him slow down. Don't let him rush you, make sure you make him explain things to you. He does research in reproductive health, so is good at that. If you don't have a case that interests him though, he can be sort of dismissive...rushed, and not attentive.

thanks for the reply. I did go see him and he put me on meds but did talk very fast, rushed, and out the door. He smiled and was nice when I was leaving though. We will see how the meds work and go from there. If I do get pregnant with the meds I doubt I see him for delivery. I like the doctors at the women's center at St. Joseph East much better!

Can you tell me what happened at your first appointment? What kind of tests did they do? I've been trying to get pregnant for 15 years with no luck and have considered going here.

Dr ken muse is a joke!!!!! I saw him for the same problem for almost 2 years..I hung in there cause he was the "specialist" I was referred too and honestly didn't know any different. I had UKHMO insurance - they refused to let me see someone else unless I was out of his practice for one year. I stopped going to the doctor all together so I could see someone else...the other doctor also at uk...did an ultrasound and scheduled me for surgery ON MY FIRST APPOINTMENT!!!! I was in pure pain and misery for 3 years because he wouldn't shut up and listen to me..the patient!!!
I would not refer my dog to him...and I had him put to sleep in march...although I would bet dr muse couldn't diagnose that he was looking at a dead dog!!
Too many good young up-to-date physicians to waste any time, effort, money or hope on him. He is a joke!
Oh and I am now the proud mommy of my very own bouncing baby boy..I sincerely do not believe that would have ever happened with dr muse.

What other specialist did you see for your fertility? I don't live in Lexington, it's about an hour away from me so I don't want to see someone who isn't going to give me results but my gyno told me that I would need to see a reproductive endocronologist.

When you schedule an appointment at Bluegrass Fertility Center, can you specifically ask to see Dr.Akin instead of Dr.Muse or do you just have to see whoever is there that day?

Does anyone mind sharing what kind of tests that you had done when you first started seeing a reproductive endocronologist? Did you have to take full days off work to get blood work done at different times during your cycle? Did they do an HSG or anything like that?

I saw Dr. Muse and loved him. After 2 years of trying, he ran some test and found the problem and had us pregnant in a few short months. Also I didn't experience being rushed. He spent a very long time explaining each test, possible reasons for not getting pregnant and other options. He even gave me his personal cell phone number in case I had questions once I left the office. He called me personally, not a nurse or PA, with my results.

I have a co-worker who tried everything and even went all the way to Cinicinnait to seek treatment. She finally went to see Dr. Muse and get ran a few test and did an ultrasound and was the first to diagnose her. She had to undergo a procedure and was pregnant about 6 months later.

People may not like his bedside manner or personality, but I and many others believe he is a genius.

What kind of tests did they do on you? I really want to go but found out that my insurance wont pay for anything coded as infertility so I'm not sure what to do at this point.

How long does it usually take to get an appointment with the Bluegrass Fertility Center? Do they have a long waiting list? Are there lots of appointments involved?
