How La La Land Was a Disappointment

My curiosity was stirred after "La La Land" won all those Golden Globes.  So I saw it.


My biggest beef with it is that the singing is so weak.  On top of that, the songs were forgettable.  If it's going to bill itself as a musical, I expect amazing singers and songs.

Give me a helping of "Grease" any day.

I have the same philosophy with giving advice about picking health care practitioners sinceI'm asked for referrals a lot.

If they bill themselves as a fertility specialist whether it's an acupuncturist or fertility doctor, they better be one.  Not a generalist who has treated an occasional fertility patient.

Don't get fooled by the cheaper prices of generalists. 

The exception is if you don't have choices because of where you live.  Then take what you've got because something is better than nothing.

For others who have choices, you want specialty knowledge. 

Reproductive health is a specialty. 

Here's a sampling of some of the issues that I come across: advanced maternal age, diminished ovarian reserve, PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, no periods, irregular periods, too many periods, male factor infertility, Clomid with timed intercourse, Clomid with IUI, IUI with injectables, IVF, egg donor, surrogacy, FET, ... and ... and ...

Specialty knowledge often comes with a price.  Either with your wallet or your time because you have to drive farther.

After almost 20 years in practice specializing in infertility, I still consider myself a student.  That's a good thing because it keeps me studying to find ways to constantly improve my success rates.

But yikes, to treat some of the cases that I have as a real newbie, I would be in way over my head. 

At the end of the day, it's results that matters.  So the decision is ultimately yours.
