Located in the city of Clive, Mid-Iowa Fertility is the only full-service fertility clinic that serves infertility patients in Central Iowa. The fertility clinic offers infertility diagnostics and fertility treatments, including in vitro fertilization (IVF) and intrauterine insemination

Mid-Iowa Fertility offers a full range of infertility diagnostics and fertility treatments, most of which are performed in an office setting, including egg retrievals and embryo transfers. Surgical procedures are performed at nearby hospitals or surgical centers, such as Lakeview Surgery Center, West Lakes Surgery Center, or Mercy West Lakes Hospital. The clinic performs surgical procedures like fimbrioplasty, laparoscopy or tubal cannulation to correct structural abnormalities that may result in infertility.

Office is ok.....Billing a problem

Your rating: 25 1
I'm only going with 2 stars on this one. The office and the facility are ok. In my experience, they aren't the kindest and weren't welcoming to us. Got what we needed done and off we go. The billing office is a big challenge to deal with. It took me 3 phone calls to get Jen to properly submit to insurance. She wanted me to do it when that's her job!!! Then when we go the final bill after insurance, we got double charged for the services. Took many emails and phone calls and 8 days to finally get the charge on our credit card reversed. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

The Staff Is Great

We've been working with Mid Iowa for 6 months and have had 1 misscarriage. Honestly, the staff is great, and it breaks their heart when your heart is breaking, and they are very helpful and understanding. We have moved on to IVF and are currently pregnant & waiting for our first ultrasound. Excited & hopeful! Highly recommend Dr. Young & staff.

so far not so good

Making contact is difficult. You must leave a message and wait for a return call. The doctor made an inappropriate comment which makes me uncomfortable using him, but there are no other options in Des Moines. Pray for the best.

Dr Cooper is amazing!!
