Describe your experience with Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii.
The doctors at ARCH are on top of the latest developments in infertility medicine. Having been with them for 6 years, I've seen first hand how they modify treatment approaches in response to new medical research and innovations. The clinic is fabulous at fitting you in if you are late to your appointment because of traffic and I've never had to reschedule. Both doctors are good but somewhat different in personality and style. I found one was a better fit for me than the other. I would not describe either doctor as warm-and-fuzzy but they are kind, polite, and professional.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Arnett at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii?

I have been with the clinic for 6 years so I have cycled through several staff changes in that time. The nurses have always been friendly and professional.
How was your experience with Christina Arnett at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii?
I've been pleased with the care I've received from Dr. Arnette. She is good at explaining options and respectful of my choices. She never pushes one procedure over another but presents the details, options, and risks, and allows me to choose what is best for our family. I'm a scientist so I frequently ask questions that may be more technical than most patients and she always takes the time to answer them.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Arnett at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii?
Don't be afraid to ask questions. If you want to know something that isn't discussed, ask her before your appointment ends.
Describe the protocols Christina Arnett used in your cycles at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii and their degree of success.
We did 7 IUIs that resulted in the birth of our daughter. We have subsequently done another 18 IUIs trying for a second child. Up to this point we have not wanted to pursue IVF for various reasons (i.e., financial, religious, and personal) but are now considering it as a "hail Mary pass" before accepting that we will remain a family of 3.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Arnett at Advanced Reproductive Center of Hawaii.
Under my insurance, I just had copays for appointments associated with the IUIs I received.
