Dr. Ambler really cares for her patients. She was the first doctor after seeing multiple doctors that showed empathy when I mentioned I had a miscarriage. I have full confidence in her and her wonderful staff. I love that she asks after if I have any questions after she explains an in-deepth topic. I don't feel rushed when we talk, I feel positive and hopeful.... Dr. Ambler was testing for things and going the extra mile to help us succeed in obtaining a successful pregnancy.

How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care?
Infertility is a hard path to navigate and Dr. Ambler is/was very accommodating and compassionate during the process. I trust her judgement and knowledge. Nothing is more comforting than knowing that your doctor is doing 100%. Ive seen other doctors and I know they've let my treatment slip through the cracks. Dr. Ambler was testing for things and going the extra mile to help us succeed in obtaining a successful pregnancy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care?
This is very cliche, but before your appointment list out questions you may have. She always asks if you have questions. She takes time to anwser them, so take the time to write down your questions.

Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care and their degree of success.
HSG- to make sure there wasn't a blocked flaloppian tube. Both tubes were clear. Blood Draws- check hormone levels Egg reserve with US- good egg numbers sperm analysis- my husbands sperm would preform

Describe your experience with Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
Strengths: The staff are very friendly, haven't met staff member that wasn't friendly. I love the location of the office, easy to get to! Weakness: parking is so hard to find, I wish they had better parking. The office is a little small, could use a bigger waiting room.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
This depends on your insurance and insurance codes they use. I know they have lower costs for IVF, we are not IVF patients.

Don’t be afraid to ask anything! For most women going through IVF, it is scary and intimidating. Dr. Amber is reassuring and wants to be sure you understand everything!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care?
Dr. Ambler has been extremely personable through this entire experience. She uses my first name every time I see her and somehow makes me feel so incredibly comfortable that I can ask her anything, even if I feel like it’s a silly question. She is always happy and pleasant and I never feel rushed during our appointments.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
Unfortunately, Colorado does not have mandated coverage and our insurance plan has no IVF coverage. We paid completely out of pocket, phase one which included stimulation, monitoring, and egg retrieval was near $12,000. This did not include my $5500.00 in medications, anesthesia for egg retrieval, and blood work. We are awaiting phase two, or FET, which is $5000. This also did not include $2500 in meds and some blood work.

I found dr ambler from her online reviews. I was disappointed from the lack of communication and explaination about our condition. I felt like I had to bother her for results. When we asked to see test results she did not have them.... We did many tests and really never heard about the results. Finally we found out that my husband had a very low sperm count, which they called to tell him on his birthday. We finally called to find out what was going on and she broke the news to us that my husband has y-chromosome microdeletion.

How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care?
She was very nice at first. THrennwe srarted doing every test in the book. This became really expensive. We did many tests and really never heard about the results. Finally we found out that my husband had a very low sperm count, which they called to tell him on his birthday. We finally called to find out what was going on and she broke the news to us that my husband has y-chromosome microdeletion. Basically the ball was completely left in our court with the option being $30,000 to move forward. We hadn’t heard back from the clinic since. ZERO follow-thru.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care?
One would be to not call with Devastating bad news on your birthday! It was not life-threatening so it probably could’ve waited a day. Second I would say follow through with the patient! Finding out that it’s going to cost $30,000 to conceive it is a lot for someone to take in. Telling someone that and then never following through really just leave them there to be sad and feel helpless.

I found dr ambler from her online reviews. I was disappointed from the lack of communication and explaination about our condition. I felt like I had to bother her for results. When we asked to see test results she did not have them. We also got a call on my husbands birthday that he was practically steril. It was awful :(
Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care and their degree of success.
We never got to the IVF portion. We only made it through the consultation, and all of the expense of testing to find out that my husband had a genetic disorder causing in fertility. We never moved forward mainly from the lack of follow through and overwhelmingly worried about the financial cost.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I had very little little interaction with the nurses
Describe your experience with Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
I did not have a great experience with this clinic. They were always very busy, which is nice… But I felt like I was in and out with very little to no answers. When we found out that my husband had Y chromosome micro deletion, we asked to see the test results. Dr. ambler did not have these test results to show us. We basically had to “take her word for it“ and just trust that my husband had this condition and we needed to spend $30,000 to get pregnant. We felt very vulnerable, allow
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
We did many genetic screening, bloodwork, and ultrasounds with the office. About 50% of this was covered by insurance. We never moved forward with IVF with this clinic. There is never any follow-through to help us along the way. We still owe the clinic thousands of dollars.

Dr. Ambler was a clear communicator and was genuinely invested in my care and outcome. I felt confident in how she approached my case, we did significant testing and based on the results she presented options and recommendations for next steps.....My first cycle for egg retrieval didn't go as planned (the follicles/eggs weren't mature enough) so we needed to cancel. I was of course very disappointed, but I really appreciated that Dr. Ambler called me herself to explain what was going on and the rationale for canceling that cycle.

How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Ambler was a clear communicator and was genuinely invested in my care and outcome. I felt confident in how she approached my case, we did significant testing and based on the results she presented options and recommendations for next steps. I felt confident in her care and the plan to to get to a positive pregnancy. I've gone to Dr. Ambler twice and absolutely recommend her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Be prepared with any questions you have and she will go through them with you at your appointments. If something comes up after hours, don't be afraid to call her on-call.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
I felt like she really cared about my treatment and outcome. When I needed to contact her after hours she was readily available, and always reassuring. She has a very friendly 'bedside' manner and it was easy to establish a good rapport with her.
Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
We decided to move forward with IVF from the very beginning. My first cycle for egg retrieval didn't go as planned (the follicles/eggs weren't mature enough) so we needed to cancel. I was of course very disappointed, but I really appreciated that Dr. Ambler called me herself to explain what was going on and the rationale for canceling that cycle. For the next egg retrieval cycle, we were able to change my dosing so that my follicles/eggs looked great and we could move ahead confidently for the retrieval. I've gone to Dr. Ambler for 2 embryo transfers, and they were both successful. Per her recommendation, I utilized an acupuncturist for each and found that to be very relaxing.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff had a good attitude and was very prompt/communicative. I liked working with them.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Clinic seems to be adjusting to an increased volume of patients, so they are working through some protocol updates. Missy, at the front desk, is fantastic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I don't really remember but given what I know from other friends that have gone through the same thing, I think my costs were average.
Describe Dana Ambler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
In my case, Dr. Ambler recommended a single embryo transfer and I felt comfortable with her reasoning.

Dr Ambler doesn’t do fresh embryo transfers...took the time to answer my questions and offer treatment plans in line with our specific diagnosis. She didn’t jump straight to IVF... was always very positive and upbeat— smiling and making jokes to ease our minds even during the tough and painful parts of IVF. I can tell she really loves her job and wants to give patients every chance at success. Our first visit we had a small miscommunication about the cost and next steps for the IVF procedure but she made it right and communication was good from that point on.

Describe your experience with Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
Dr Ambler and the staff are awesome. I never met Dr Albrecht, though I’ve heard good things about him too. One drawback to this clinic is that the retrievals and transfers are all done in Colorado Springs while they are building their new location. All blood work, ultrasounds, and other appointments were done at their Englewood location. It wasn’t a big deal for us because we live south of Denver already, but others considering this clinic should be aware. Also, Dr Ambler doesn’t do fresh embryo transfers.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.
IVF Freeze-all cycle cost about $12k plus about $3k for medications Each Embryo transfer cost about $4,500 and about $1,500 for medications
Describe Dana Ambler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
I was treated like a human with all of my interactions with Dr. Ambler. The billing staff was a different story, I felt more like a dollar sign. I would get bills and phone calls about treatment that had already been paid for.
Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
We went to Dr. Ambler as a LGBT couple hoping to have a baby. We started with the IUI process but after 3 failed medicated IUI cycles Dr. Ambler felt we needed to move to the next step and we agreed. We decided to do an egg retrieval with a freeze all cycle. After the retrieval, Dr. Ambler diagnosed me with poor egg quality. We had one embryo make it to freeze. Dr. Ambler wanted to move a head with the frozen transfer of our one embryo, and I am currently pregnant with our one little embryo.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I really enjoyed most of the nurses that I interacted with at Conceptions. The one thing I didn't like is that you had a different nurse at each stage of your cycle. They were all very knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
The front desk staff at the Denver office is very friendly and great. The front desk staff at the Littleton office isn't as friendly, they whisper about other co-workers and patients. The billing department is probably the worst part of the clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Total cost for treatment including 3 IUI's, egg retrieval, frozen transfer, and medication was about 26,000
Describe Dana Ambler's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
We only had one embryo to transfer so this was never and issue. Dr. Ambler wasn't completely opposed of transferring 2 embryos but I think it is very situational.

Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
First Dr Ambler ordered a battery of tests for me and my husband. I was diagnosed with PCOS and type 2 diabetes. First, I had to get the diabetes under control - Dr Ambler prescribed metformin and referred me to an endocrinologist. After several months, I was able to resume treatment with Dr Ambler. She prescribed femara with a trigger shot, and I also had appointments for monitoring. The first cycle did not result in pregnancy, so we decided to try again. If that cycle had not resulted in pregnancy (it did!), Dr Ambler mentioned that we would begin to consider other alternatives. Since my problem was that I was not ovulating, we would skipped IUI and probably moved to IVF.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I can't remember her name - but I didn't love the first nurse who was assigned to me. She was a little too blunt for me! I was moved to another nurse at my request, and she was great.

The clinic was very nice and welcoming, and answered my million questions. I was never rushed or ignored.
