Attention to Detail

Attention to detail is on a 1 - 10 scale, and is scored based on the rate, and severity, of errors committed by the clinic according to the patients.

For example, a severe error might be failing to inform a patient of critical information, while a small error might be failing to call a patient with results.

CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics. This data represents the outcomes of IVF cycles when using a person's own eggs.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

Dr Ambler has been amazing through this whole experience. She has great bedside manner, she’s easy to talk to, and makes me feel like I really matter to her. She always address’s me by my first name, as well as my husband. Appointments with her are easy, comfortable, and pleasant. She has a great attitude and always seems very happy, which really helps when going through this tough journey. We couldn’t be anymore pleased with her care.
The clinic [Denver IVF Albrecht] has been wonderful, communication is great. The IVF coordinator, Melissa Aguirre is absolutely top notch! There has never been any issues that have had to be addressed. We have no complaints!... My nurse has been great, easy to talk to and very informative.... 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.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
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 Fertility Care (formerly 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.

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.

when we got very, very bad results from our first and only IVF cycle with her [Dr. Ambler] (0 embryos from 14 eggs) we had to request a phone call with her to go over what happened when the nurse had no explanation...told us that it was my egg quality and gave us a devastatingly bad prognosis. She was willing to do another cycle but wouldn’t change anything....asked Dr. Ambler if it could have been her lab or the protocol that gave us such poor results but she refused to take any responsibility and was unwilling to try anything than her standard one-size fits all approach.
My results/file were mixed with another patients [at Denver IVF Albrecht] and the results and patient name were shown to me in an appointment and were relied upon for my IVF cycle...Even though she suspected DOR, Dr. Ambler had me on birth control to prime for my egg retrieval and help with timing (they only do egg retrievals one week per month)...very bad results from our first and only IVF cycle with her (0 embryos from 14 eggs)...
How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
I liked Dr. Ambler’s bedside manner and she did an okay job of explaining things the few times we saw her. However, when we got very, very bad results from our first and only IVF cycle with her (0 embryos from 14 eggs) we had to request a phone call with her to go over what happened when the nurse had no explanation. Dr. Ambler told us that it was my egg quality and gave us a devastatingly bad prognosis. She was willing to do another cycle but wouldn’t change anything. We decided that didn’t make much sense and switched to CCRM, who did additional testing and suggested a different approach. We got 12 beautiful embryos from 20 eggs with my first cycle with CCRM. I’m currently looking at my beautiful 3 month old twins from that cycle. Dr. Ambler said I had DOR and poor egg quality but CCRM found no evidence of that and said it was unexplained infertility. We asked Dr. Ambler if it could have been her lab or the protocol that gave us such poor results but she refused to take any responsibility and was unwilling to try anything than her standard one-size fits all approach. We thought we were saving money by going to her but we would have saved so much if we just went to CCRM first. We also would have saved the heartache of hearing our doctor, who we had trusted and been under the care of for nearly a year, tell us that we would probably never have our own biological children. The few months between hearing her prognosis and getting the positive pregnancy test were the hardest of my life. I know it’s impossible to have any certainty in this area, but if we had listened to her we would have likely given up on IVF. Instead CCRM gave us hope, 12 embryos, and 2 beautiful babies (so far!).
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
If you are able, go to CCRM. They have the best lab, doctors, and nurses. When we did IVF it was about $5,000 more per cycle, but the quality of care was noticeably better in every way and the results were worth every penny.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
Nurses for IUIs were great. When we moved onto IVF they were terrible. Communication was poor and my file (including test results) were mixed with another patients. I had to point this out when they were reviewing my test results in person and I could see the patients name on the paperwork. We very rarely got any face time with Dr. Ambler.
Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
Even though she suspected DOR, Dr. Ambler had me on birth control to prime for my egg retrieval and help with timing (they only do egg retrievals one week per month). CCRM did estrogen priming instead and we got many more eggs and better quality eggs as well, and we followed my body for the perfect time instead of the clinics schedule. Dr. Ambler would only do frozen transfers, but we had nothing to transfer. CCRM said for us, if egg quality might be an issue, we should try fresh (which worked) for our 2 best embryos and the remaining 10 were frozen, even though they typically recommend frozen. Dr. Ambler had me on DHEA for several months prior to my retrieval. CCRM took me off of it immediately. They said my levels were so high it looked like I had a tumor and the test doesn’t run that high, not to mention I was having horrible side effects that I complained of to Dr. Ambler. Dr. Ambler ran this test but did not share the results with me, only cut my dose in half and did not retest.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
For IUIs, the nurses were fine. I expected the same or better for IVF but they were terrible and were a big reason why we switched clinics. I was not assigned one nurse or coordinator and they did not communicate well with each other. I had to repeat information multiple times. The biggest issue was that another patients test results were in my file and despite several emails about something seeming off - I wasn’t in the office the day they said I took certain tests and I didn’t remember them being performed - it wasn’t until our meeting a few days before my egg retrieval where I had to physically show them that someone else’s name was on the piece of paper that this issue was finally corrected, and I had to take the test before my retrieval. They were also not very compassionate and had no explanation or next steps when they called with sometimes very bad news. I didn’t feel that my IVF cycle was being competently managed which obviously added unnecessary and possibly harmful stress to an already stressful process.
Describe your experience with Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
The clinic is fine. Does not have the bells and whistles of CCRM. Dr. Ambler’s office was working on the new lab at the time of my retrieval so we had to go to HQA (High Quality Affordable) in Colorado Springs for retrieval. I didn’t know any better then but compared to CCRM, it was terrible. The nurses couldn’t get my IV started and when they called the anesthesiologist to try he wasn’t even wearing gloves. He couldn’t get it right away and blood was spurting everywhere. He had my husband, without gloves put pressure on it while they tried the other hand. Not very comforting! They had me walk way too soon after surgery and the whole place just didn’t seem clean or professional. I felt terrible for the next 48 hours, compared to feeling back to normal later that day at CCRM. Not sure if/when the new lab opened or if it’s any better. Dr. Ambler assured us that HQA was the best in the area which in retrospect is laughable.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
I can’t remember exactly but I think IUIs were around $1k each and IVF was around $25k without a transfer.

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.
I did not have a great experience with this clinic. They [Albrecht Women's Care] were always very busy, which is nice… But I felt like I was in and out with very little to no answers.... 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.
How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly 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 Fertility Care (formerly 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.

Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly 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.

Dr. Albrecht thoroughly reviewed my history and quickly uncovered 2 reasons for my multiple failures. He also listened to my situation and offered options that were yet unexplored at his clinic....Dr. Albrecht is thorough, a good listener, patient, and knowledgeable...Don't be alarmed by his advanced age. Dr Albrecht is on top of his practice and patients, and is a wonderful surgeon with steady hands...He also has a kind heart, and would hold my hand after a transfer or during an ultrasound, and tell me that I would be a mom.
I love that it is a small practice [Albrecht Women's Care] that the whole staff from doctor to billing dept knows who you are when you walk in the door, and genuinely care. It is a well run office, and go above and beyond for patients....The only thing that really went wrong was the nurse not putting me on the list for a transfer, as they had a waiting list, so when I finally discovered she hadn't, I had to fight with her to not delay my transfer by 3 months.
How was your experience with Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
Dr. Albrecht is thorough, a good listener, patient, and knowledgeable. As Dr Minjarez put it when she recommended him to me "If you want someone who will turn over every stone, go to Dr Albrecht." He did that. I did feel like sometimes he would overrule my suggestions based on academic knowledge vs. my knowledge of my own body, but in the end, he got the job done. He was very quick to perform surgeries that needed to be done as soon as he discovered the need (same week when the surgery center/hospital could fit us in) to keep the process moving. He also has a kind heart, and would hold my hand after a transfer or during an ultrasound, and tell me that I would be a mom.

Dr. Albrecht thoroughly reviewed my history and quickly uncovered 2 reasons for my multiple failures. He also listened to my situation and offered options that were yet unexplored at his clinic. At the same time, I felt that his IVF nurse was more interested in blocking "out of the box" requests, would often forget promises made, and due to forgetfulness, would put me on long waiting lists weeks or months after a request.
Describe the protocols Bruce Albrecht used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
I was an unusual case, in that the first surgery was an Ooferectomy. In hindsight, I probably could have gotten just my tubes out, so this is one where I have a little regret in moving as quickly as we did. I was then put on estrogen and progesterone, which I thought was too much for my body, and eventually reduced it on my own. I then had a histosonogram, which diagnosed severe Ashermans, so then had uterine surgery. Eventually I went on standard transfer drugs. First transfer failed, due to embryo quality (Dembryo from couple that went thru infertility). Second transfer succeeded, with Dembryo that was DE/DS.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care). (Assigned nurse: Laura Padilla)
My nursing review was based on Laura, who was very much about ensuring that the patients followed rules, and couldn't listen to a question to save her life. I know she had compassion, but it was generally hard to find, and I found that she would forget promises made. On the other hand, the rest of the nursing staff - Christie and Cathy - were wonderful, caring, compassionate people who were also great at their jobs. They respected Dr Albrecht's process AND cared for the individual patient.
Describe your experience with Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
I love that it is a small practice that the whole staff from doctor to billing dept knows who you are when you walk in the door, and genuinely care. It is a well run office, and go above and beyond for patients. When I was there, they did not have their own lab. I've since learned that was the reason for a lot of the delays and roadblocks that I encountered, so I'm excited to go back for #2. I unfortunately have less respect for his new partner, Dr. Ambler, who seems to be less knowledgeable and less organized in her thinking than Dr. Albrecht. In another setting (Conceptions) she prescribed treatments that were counter to those of 3 other well respected doctors.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
Surgeries were 80% covered by insurance, so perhaps $10K. Transfers I believe were $4500. I also have records for these if you would like to reach out to me separately.
Describe Bruce Albrecht's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
Doc would ONLY implant a single, due to my Asherman's. He believed if two survived the implant, I would miscarry. I am now grateful, though I wanted him to implant 2 to ensure that I got at least one!

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 Fertility Care (formerly 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.

He was calm, smart and very well educated regarding the research. He was patient and took his time to look each of us in the eye and be sure we understood our path ahead. I cannot say enough positive things about the man. I would recommend him to anyone and plan to go back for #2.
I told my husband it was surprising to me that they had other patients because the doctor and the nursing staff was incredibly attentive to me during our procedures there.

Describe the protocols Bruce Albrecht used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
I do not remember most of them, but I know I was on 300 IU of Menopur and Bravelle 2 x a day. He took into account the "Greenlight" program that was offering a rebate because he did not want to cost of the drugs to be limiting to us. We stimmed for 10 days and had 18 eggs retrieved, 14 were mature, 9 fertilized, 2 transferred and 4 frozen.

Dr. Albrecht is one of the most compassionate people on the planet. He's not a reproductive endocrinologist with ego. It's rather clear that he's in this area of practice because he loves the science and the families he helps. When we met with Dr. Albrecht, he was forthright in giving us information and was also supportive at the same time. The decisions were always ours to make, and it was clear that he would give us all the information we needed to make those decisions. We never felt pressured to do a procedure.
Calls [to Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care] were returned. Appointments were made quickly and effectively. Lab results were given on the same day. Not once did we feel pressured or pushed into making decisions and we were given time and space to make those decisions when we needed it. We appreciated the way explanations were made when we didn't understand a concept or treatment... Kathi [nurse] is an amazingly warm and caring person. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and understands the urgency of the matters at hand. Phone calls are always returned, test results are always given in a timely manner and explanations of those results were always given in ways that were clear. I never felt demeaned when I would have to ask what a test result meant.

When we met with Dr. Albrecht, he was forthright in giving us information and was also supportive at the same time. The decisions were always ours to make, and it was clear that he would give us all the information we needed to make those decisions. We never felt pressured to do a procedure. Never. After we were done building our family with Dr. Albrecht's help, I relied on him to perform my hysterectomy when the fibroids became too much. I was alone in the operating room and he stayed right there by my side until the anesthesia was administered. He held my hand, and spoke to me so I wouldn't feel alone and scared. Knowing that Dr. A was right there brought me great comfort.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
If you are looking for a doctor that will work outside the box to help you build your family, Dr. Albrecht is the way to go. He sees each family and their unique situations and looks to find ways to help that family meet their goals. When deciding if Dr. Albrecht is right for you, I would encourage you to decide if you want to be a name or a number. There will be no cattle calls at Albrecht Women's Care and you'll be cared for as a human being who is going through a very difficult struggle. I have remained a patient of Dr. Albrecht's even after being done building our family 9 years ago. They are that wonderful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
Dr. Albrecht and his staff are very keen on making sure that ever patient who walks through their door is treated kindly and given all the information necessary to make informed decisions. Calls were returned. Appointments were made quickly and effectively. Lab results were given on the same day. Not once did we feel pressured or pushed into making decisions and we were given time and space to make those decisions when we needed it. We appreciated the way explanations were made when we didn't understand a concept or treatment.
Describe the protocols Bruce Albrecht used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
After all testing had been completed we knew that we would be going into any treatment plan with diminished ovarian reserve and poor egg quality, but hubby's sperm was stellar. Dr. Albrecht suggested IVF from the start, but we weren't ready to go there just yet (like many families do) and we opted for IUI with clomid procedures first. Knowing that our egg quality was non existent, Dr. Albrecht suggested the use of donor eggs and gave us a very high chance of success using that route. At the time, we were emotionally spent and opted for domestic adoption, which Dr. Albrecht supported. After two failed adoption attempts and three years of time, we went back to Dr. Albrecht and discussed our options using donor eggs in more detail. We began the process by having surgery to remove uterine fibroids to allow me to be a better carrier for a resulting pregnancy. During this time, we also selected egg donors and began the process of psychological evaluations, and FDA required testing as we would be using my husband's sperm. After being matched with a donor, we performed a "test" cycle and found that my uterine lining was great and we were cleared to cycle with our donor. We were given the opportunity to discuss at length the number of embryos that we would transfer and the decision was all ours. Dr. Albrecht gave us information, but never required that we transfer a certain number. We chose to transfer one embryo and freeze the rest. That one single embryo transfer resulted in a full-term birth, a daughter. We have been able to donate the remaining embryos to families who have also had their dreams made true by the births of their children as well.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care). (Assigned nurse: Kathi Matson)
I don't recall who the transfer coordinator at the time was, but I primarily saw Kathi Matson. Kathi is an amazingly warm and caring person. She is compassionate, knowledgeable, and understands the urgency of the matters at hand. Phone calls are always returned, test results are always given in a timely manner and explanations of those results were always given in ways that were clear. I never felt demeaned when I would have to ask what a test result meant.
Describe your experience with Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
I'm clearly biased. I don't feel this clinic has any weaknesses. Their strengths are numerous. You will be seen and treated as an individual. There are no cookie-cutter approaches here and each and every step in your journey here will be done with compassion, thorough thoughtfulness, and extreme care for your well being.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
The costs associated with our care were partially covered by our employer-provided health insurance. The rest of the costs were out-of-pocket. We were able to source our own medications and use donated meds as long as they were not expired.
Describe Bruce Albrecht's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
I covered this in the previous question. Dr. Albrecht allowed us to choose whether or not we transferred a single embryo or multiple embryos. We chose a single embryo transfer and were successful. I think it's important to note that this was also our first IVF attempt and I was 38 years old at the time.

Because I'm a RN I had a lot of questions each time I saw him and he took the time to answer all of them without making me feel rushed. Consults with him typically lasted over an hr.... First IUI clomid 100 mg; IUI 2-3 clomid 100 mg plus vaginal estrace. IUI 4-5 10 mg Letrozole.
The clinic [Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care] is small which is both a strength and weakness. Timing of IUI's was often very dictated by their availability which was sometimes stressful; we had to freeze sperm for a couple of cycles unexpectedly (partner with last minute work trip) and it was a rush to get that done since they only allow samples to be frozen two days per week.

I can't think of a better doctor than Dr Albrecht. Even when explaining situations that would make conceiving difficult, he always remained positive about our chances of a successful pregnancy....Dr Albrecht and his staff are amazing to work with. It's a smaller office, so the staff quickly knows you by name. He is great at explaining all procedures and works with you on creating a plan.

Describe the protocols Bruce Albrecht used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
At my first visit he decided that a hysteroscopy would be the best initial option for fibroid removal, but explained that a secondary laparoscopy might be necessary. We proceeded with the second surgery 3 months after the first and successfully removed all fibroids. 3 months later we began our first cycle of Clomid which resulted in a miscarriage. We tried one additional cycle and then moved on to Letrozole which resulted in a positive pregnancy test.

I haven’t spoken with my doctor [Dr. Ambler] since my last IVF cycle when none of our embryos survived. We had a follow up in October despite being on the schedule for a transfer with donor eggs this June...At first, I really thought she was on it. Now I feel like she doesn’t even know my name anymore. I’m using donor eggs and haven’t gotten an email, phone call, or face to face since last October and she wasn’t the doctor that did my retrieval last September. I have no idea what happens next...
they [staff at Denver Fertility Albrecht Women's Care] don’t communicate well with each other and have misplaced paperwork, not sent the right consents. Their lack of organization is really defining. They had a couple great staff members at the beginning, but now I’m less than satisfied. The strength is that they have a good blood draw girl...

How was your experience with Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
Dana Ambler is ok. At first, I really thought she was on it. Now I feel like she doesn’t even know my name anymore. I’m using donor eggs and haven’t gotten an email, phone call, or face to face since last October and she wasn’t the doctor that did my retrieval last September. I have no idea what happens next and keep reaching out to nurses to get paperwork filled out.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
I would probably say to see if you feel comfortable with her before they decide on her and tell them that upfront they seem to know what they are doing.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Dana Ambler at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
I haven’t spoken with my doctor since my last IVF cycle when none of our embryos survived. We had a follow up in October despite being on the schedule for a transfer with donor eggs this June. With the pandemic, everything has been a bit unnerving and they office is not communicating well with each other nor with me. They have changed appointments multiple times. It feels a lot less human and my favorite 2 people at this clinic have left.
Describe the protocols Dana Ambler used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
We did IVF and I guess I was unaware that only 50% survive after the embryologist grows them. I also was not expecting for all of them not to survive.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
There used to be a nurse there that was great named Michelle. Since then I have been floating through a host of people and have no idea who anyone is. No one communicates with each other. They called me and my boyfriend no less than 15 times 2 weeks ago to change appointments. It was real frustrating.
Describe your experience with Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
The weaknesses are that they don’t communicate well with each other and have misplaced paperwork, not sent the right consents. Their lack of organization is really defining.

[Dr. Ambler's] approach is slightly different and she has affirmed that after 1 failed she will change things to give us the best chances.

I had a heart shaped uterus which he believed contributed to my recurrent miscarriage.

During our first consultation, Dr. Albrecht spent more than an hour with my husband and I talking about our fertility journey, and developing an individualized plan for us...doesn't just put all patients on the same plan. We left our first visit with hand-written steps of what we were going to do next. Dr. Albrecht also places a big emphasis on overall health and diet, and details how lifestyle changes can impact fertility. He incorporated vitamins into our treatment plan, which definitely supported my physical and mental health throughout the process.

They are very compassionate to the journey each couple is going through, and were always able to answer questions that I had...Strengths: Friendly, educated, patient, compassionate Every visit I left with a card indicating what I needed to do next for the following two weeks. It was very helpful because each appointment was sort of an emotional journey. When emotions run high, it makes it hard to remember specifics. Having things written down really put my mind at ease.

How was your experience with Bruce Albrecht at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care)?
Dr. Albrecht has a very calm and sincere demeanor. From our first consultative visit, I felt like he developed a plan for my husband and I that was unique and met our fertility needs.

The whole team at Denver Fertility Albrecht Women's Care is incredible. Any time I called with questions or concerns, somebody was always available with an educated and friendly response.

Describe the protocols Bruce Albrecht used in your cycles at Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care) and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Albrecht after receiving fertility treatment from another doctor. At the start of my journey with the other physician, my husband and I went through testing including semen analysis and hysterosalpingogram (HSG). It was ultimately determined that I had uterine polyps, and I had a polypectomy, D&C, and hysteroscopy. Following surgery, I began having irregularities in my period which included the presence of large clots. My physician told me not to worry, and said that we needed to keep trying to conceive for another year before coming back for additional treatment. It was then that I decided to start seeing Dr. Albrecht. He started me on Clomid right away. After two cycles of taking Clomid and timed intercourse, we decided to proceed with IUI. We were lucky enough to be successful with IUI the first try!

Dr Ambler truly cares about her patients. She meets with patients as often as they need, but even if not requested we saw her at almost every single visit. It was amazing and such a welcome change from our previous doctor, who I'm fairly certain didn't even know my name... always available to take our calls/questions...She was our partner in this journey every step of the way. She took the time to conduct due diligence and exhaust every test before diagnosing our conception issue. She went into detail with us about what to expect and was patient with our questions/concerns. She made us feel heard and never lost patience with us.
that facility [Denver Fertility Albrecht Women's Care] was wonderful. The front desk staff are welcoming, attentive, and truly care about you and your journey.

Describe your experience with Denver Fertility Care (formerly Denver IVF Albrecht Women's Care).
Well, Dr. Ambler is no longer at conceptions, so I don't have anything helpful to share. I saw her at Albrecht Women's Care and that facility was wonderful. The front desk staff are welcoming, attentive, and truly care about you and your journey. The nurses are all wonderful and highly trained, and Dr. Ambler was a true rock star.
