What to Look for When Choosing an Infertility Clinic
Many people use clinic success rates to select a fertility clinic. Every three years the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publishes the Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) Report; the most recent report was released in 2007. It includes a list of all the fertility clinics across the country and highlights their success rates and infertility treatment procedures. Review this material closely and focus on the success rates for women your age using your specific treatment procedure, such as donor egg or IVF.

Ask for physicians who specialize in the type of infertility treatment you need.
Your chance of success in family building is increased with the right team of infertility specialists working at your fertility clinic. The staff consists of doctors, nurses, embryologists, laboratory and ultrasound technicians, counselors, and financial experts.
Consider spending time at each clinic you are interested in. Bring your partner and meet with the doctor. Discuss the treatment philosophy of the clinic and staff. Watch the atmosphere in the office and how staff relates to each other and to patients. Utilize your network of friends and family to find out their clinic experiences and integrate all of the information in your decision making process.
For many people undergoing infertility treatment frequent weekly trips to the fertility clinic may be needed. Consider geographical distance as a factor when choosing a clinic. Ask about satellite clinic programs that may be more convenient to use.
