Describe the protocols Ketan Patel used in your cycles at Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
Dr Patel recommended genetic testing on my husband and I to rule out the possibility of us both being a carrier of a genetic disease. Neither of us were carriers for the same genetic diseases so it did not matter in our case in the end, but provided additional peace of mind. We also did a freeze all on the embryo’s and chose genetic testing of the embryo’s per Dr Patel’s recommendation. This did prove to be very helpful and we were shocked how many embryo’s had potential chromosomal problems. Highly recommend the genetic testing.
