Dr Bachus is very hands on during the IVF process. He did all of the ultrasounds at our monitoring appointments and personally adjusted meds as needed. He was very compassionate and took time to talk through any and all concerns at every appointment...We did a 5 day transfer with 2 embryos. Post retrieval we had 12 eggs. 6 fertilized with iCSI and 3 matured to blastocysts. We currently have 1 frozen embryo and a 9 week old baby girl.

How was your experience with Kevin Bachus?
Dr Bachus is very hands on during the IVF process. He did all of the ultrasounds at our monitoring appointments and personally adjusted meds as needed. He was very compassionate and took time to talk through any and all concerns at every appointment.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus?
Make an appointment. Try not to have any preconceived ideas of what to expect. They will walk you through the entire process (including cost, time commitment and expectations) during your consultation. Making that first appointment is the first step and they will hold your hand through the rest.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Bachus makes you feel like a person not just a number. His warm demeanor and professionalism are exactly what I was hoping for. He answered all of questions no matter how insignificant they seemed.
Describe the protocols Kevin Bachus used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We had two cycles of IUI with I believe menopur and ovidrel. Both resulted in negative tests. Our third cycle was IVF. Protocol included Follistim, Menopur, Ganirelix and Ovidrel. We did a 5 day transfer with 2 embryos. Post retrieval we had 12 eggs. 6 fertilized with iCSI and 3 matured to blastocysts. We currently have 1 frozen embryo and a 9 week old baby girl.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Kelley is the BEST. We have no complaints with the way she handled our care. She was always so kind and compassionate. My numbers on my first BETA were low (46) and I was convinced I was having a chemical pregnancy. Kelley calmed me down and explained that she’d seen several people in my situation have very successful pregnancies. That is just one example of how she coached me and my husband through the IVF process. I cried the day we graduated from their clinic and had to say good bye to Kelley.
Describe your experience with Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Strengths: they are very organized and very helpful. From the front office to billing, everyone was very kind and helpful. Weakness: the only criticism I can possibly come up with is their office decor is very dated. Don’t let that fool you. They use state of the art technology and are very progressive in their treatment plans.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus.
I am very fortunate because I had 80% coverage for all IUIs and IVF through my insurance. iCSI and freezing of embryos was not included but everything else was covered at 80%. I believe the initial quote we got was $16,000 for an IVF cycle but, like I said, my insurance covered a heavy majority. I believe we paid $3500 after insurance. I know this is very unusual and we are very grateful.

He [Dr. Kevin Bachus] is a bit conservative, compared to some other doctors, but only because he wants what is best for you, and to reduce your risks. I feel like he was very approachable, and empathetic to any situation.... Initially we attempted a medicated iui, with letrozole. I responded well, and my lining was great. But my body kept creating cysts. Eventually I had to have them removed and we started iui cycles again. Each time letrozole was increased and hcg trigger shot was added. Each time I had at least 2 follicles. Medications and timing was adjusted as the dr saw fit.

How was your experience with Kevin Bachus?
He is a great doctor. He has many years of experience and will take time to explain what he wants to do with you. He is a bit conservative, compared to some other doctors, but only because he wants what is best for you, and to reduce your risks. I feel like he was very approachable, and empathetic to any situation.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus?
Make sure you know all options and have a discussion with him about why he wants to do each one. The insight is helpful in tough decisions.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. baucus shows true care and attention to his patients. I never felt like a number. He always discussed things with us at length and personalized each appointment.

Describe your experience with your nurse.
All the nurses are amazing. I know they care, they get to know you, and are your biggest cheerleaders! Any questions could be asked and there was never a time that I felt like they didn’t want to help me. Great nurses!
Describe your experience with Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic building seems a bit older, and outdated. But the equipment is all new and top notch. Don’t be fooled by the building. There are several rooms for different procedures, so patients typically don’t have a long wait. The waiting room does have a space for children to play, which is nice for parents.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus.
Iui without medication $1200, and medications ranged from $300-$500 a cycle.

Dr. Bachus was very knowledgeable and compassionate. He was very good at explaining things in a way that I would understand them....I did three IUIs with Letrozole. In the third IUI, the injectable Menopur was added but did not produce the desired effects of more mature follicals. Each of my IUIs was unsuccessful and resulted in a negative pregnancy test. I had unexplained infertility and endometriosis, so the hope of this treatment was to release more eggs, hoping that at least one would result in a pregnancy.

How was your experience with Kevin Bachus?
Dr. Bachus was very knowledgeable and compassionate. He was very good at explaining things in a way that I would understand them. He traveled up to the state where I lived to meet with patients which was very convenient.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus?
Dr. Bachus is a wonderful doctor, but don't be afraid to take change of your care in order to get what you need from a fertility clinic.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Bachus and his staff were very kind and the majority of the time very compassionate. I wish they would have done a better job at checking in with me after my IUIs instead of just waiting for me to call with bad news.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses were friendly but did not go above and beyond for you. They did not ever check in with me to see how I was doing after completing a cycle.
Describe your experience with Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic is smaller which offered more individualized care but their resources are limited. They would send you to many different facilities for treatments and procedures which I believe is a weakness. It also appeared that they did not have enough staff to be able to offer appointment times that are convenient for you.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus.
The total was around $7,000 for the treatment that I received.

I really like how he [Dr. Bachus] is very open and honest with us. He didn't give us false hope and he gave us realistic goals each time....He doesn't have a set care plan for every patient. He makes a plan for each couple and genuinely cares about them....I started off on clomid 50mg two times a day but my body didn't react hiwvthey expected. So that cycles ended up being my baseline. The next time they upped my clomid to 150mg as well as the menopur and hcg shot.

How was your experience with Kevin Bachus?
I really like how he is very open and honest with us. He didn't give us false hope and he gave us realistic goals each time. I really appreciate that the clinic is open 7 days a week for patients because a women's cycle isn't only my bday through Friday.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus?
Stop Dr. googling because it freaks you out.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He doesn't have a set care plan for every patient. He makes a plan for each couple and genuinely cares about them.
Describe the protocols Kevin Bachus used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have only done TIC ( on my 3rd cycle) because that is what my insurance will cover. I started off on clomid 50mg two times a day but my body didn't react hiwvthey expected. So that cycles ended up being my baseline. The next time they upped my clomid to 150mg as well as the menopur and hcg shot. Now my third cycle they did the 150 mg clomid, 3 menopur injections,1 hcg injection and progesterone suppositories. I asked for the progesterone because I had a chemical pregnancy before I saw Dr.Bachus.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I think the staff is great. I had an issue with one nurse because her choice of words were poor. Before I started my 3rd TIC she told me that She sees IUI in my future. I just thinks that is something you don't tell a women as ahecstarting her 3rd round of hormones.
Describe your experience with Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
Everything is great. There are some nurses that don't have a great bed side manner but I don't think it's intentionally. It's more that they lack people skills but are good at the scientific aspect. So don't like that discourage you.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus.
My insurance covered all natural treatments like TIC but I have to pay out of pocket once I progress.

Go in ready to get the helpyou need. Always have your questions written out and ask them.

What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus?
It's a small clinic so he can't always take new patients, I've known some people to have to wait awhile before they can get in to see him. It's worth it to be patient.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
It is a small practice, and you see Dr Bachus pretty much every time your are in the clinic. He knows you and always seems to be rooting for you, without giving false hope.
Describe the protocols Kevin Bachus used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did an IVF attempt with my own eggs that resulted in a pregnancy and then a miscarriage. Then Dr Bachus encouraged me to take a break before trying again. The following year we did IVF with donor eggs which resulted in a pregnancy and we also have frozen embryos should we pursue future pregnancies.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus.
My first cycle of IVF we had some insurance coverage and paid around 12k out of pocket with medications. Second cycle, no insurance, with a known donor, we paid around 24k.
