Selecting a medical practice for fertility treatment can be confusing, stressful and overwhelming. The choice you make will profoundly affect your future and chance for success, and therefore, it is very important that you spend time getting educated before making a choice.
Fertility Clinics are NOT all the Same!!
At Advanced Fertility Care, we think that you should come to us for your IVF cycle because we believe that we offer the best value in the Valley and Greater Phoenix area. We are proud of our excellent success rates. In addition to our success rates, you will receive the personal care and attention that every patient wants and deserves. We encourage you to do your research, as we are confident that once you make your own comparison, you will choose us for your care.
In order to research clinics, you will want to ask questions on several key issues, such as: success rates, costs, types of procedures performed, and insurance participation. Understanding these issues before you initiate treatment will save you an enormous amount of time, energy, frustration, and money, not to mention increasing your chances of achieving a successful pregnancy.
Where to Gather Information
- Success Rates: Many people, including physicians, are not aware that the federal government requires that all fertility clinics track and report the outcomes of all IVF cycles completed in the United States. All clinics’ data (their clinical outcomes) can be seen on the CDC.gov website. Most well respected clinics also belong to and report to the Society Assisted Reproductive Technology ( www.sart.org ). To be a member of SART, there are additional requirements that have to be met, and there are some clinics that do not choose to take the extra step to become a member of SART. Since we are a member of SART, our clinical outcome data (“success rates”) can be seen directly on the sart.org website. We encourage you to check out how we do!
