Describe your experience with Red Rock Fertility.
The clinic is beautiful! It's easy to get to and definitely seems state of the art! The only frustrating part is that a lot of times I'll call then have to wait for someone to call me back or get transferred multiple times, but I realize that also helps ensure I get the most accurate information.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Eva Littman at Red Rock Fertility?
Dr. Littman was very thorough and explained everything in great detail to make sure I understood.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Red Rock Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Leti)
Leti was amazing! She was quick to respond, great at explaining everything, and showed so much compassion when our IVF failed.
How was your experience with Eva Littman at Red Rock Fertility?
Dr. Littman was very active and present during my IVF. She did every ultrasound, explained number of follicles, went over estrogen levels, uterine lining, etc. I liked that she was so hands on, most clinics will just have nurses do those things so it was nice having the actual doctor explain in person rather than hearing results later from a nurse. She did run a bit late on embryo transfer day, but again, she was likely busy giving the same attention see gave me to other patients so I didn't mind. When our transfer failed I got a call from a nurse, it would have been nice to get that call from Dr. Littman herself. Overall I liked her as a doctor and will be using her for future transfers.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Eva Littman at Red Rock Fertility?
Dr. Littman can get a bit rushed, but she's a busy woman so don't take it personally!
Describe the protocols Eva Littman used in your cycles at Red Rock Fertility and their degree of success.
We did IVF with ICSI. I did a pretty typical protocol of birth control for a few weeks, all the pre cycle lab work and sonohysterogram. I stimmed on gonal-f and menopur, when eggs were mature and estrogen high enough we triggered with hcg then retrieval. I did overstimulate so we did a freeze all of 8 day 5 embryos and 1 day 6 embryo. The next month we did a medicated FET with oral estrogen and Crinone. I personally liked that no Lupron used, it cut down on medication costs and was a relatively short time on injections.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Eva Littman at Red Rock Fertility.
My insurance covered the majority of my treatment. I basically paid copays. I think total ended up around $4500 for IVF and FET.
Describe Eva Littman's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Red Rock Fertility.
Dr. Littman left the decision on number of embryos transferred up to me as a patient, but would (for obvious reasons) not allow more than 2 at a time.
