Choosing a Salt Lake City Infertility Clinic
It is important to do research on your fertility clinic options before you choose one. An important resource to help you with this is the Assisted Reproductive Technology Report. The ART Report, which is compiled by the CDC, lists success rates for each clinic in the United States, along with other information for each, like number of multiple births, number of IVF cycles, types of diagnoses treated, and what kinds of IVF services are offered.
Make sure you read the success rates carefully when comparing clinics. The success rates are broken up by age group, as well as by type of IVF, so pay close attention to the information that will be most relevant in your case.
At a fertility clinic, you will be treated by a team of fertility professionals, including your fertility doctor, nurses, counselors, financial advisors, embryologists, and lab staff. Because you will spend a lot of time with this team, it is important you visit the fertility clinic beforehand to make sure you are comfortable with the environment they provide. Observe how the staff treats their patients, and try to schedule a consultation with the fertility doctor so you can have a better idea of his or her treatment philosophies and specializations.
Distance may not seem like such a vital point when you begin searching for your fertility clinic, but it takes on more importance when you begin to consider the amount of time you will need to be there. You will likely have frequent appointments, some as many as once a day. It can be difficult to factor in a long commute, especially if you are already balancing work and other commitments. You may be under a great deal of stress with your treatments, and you don’t want to add to that with a difficult commute.
