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.

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.
