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.

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.

She [Dr. Shauna McKinney] is very straight forward! She knows what she is doing, very knowledgeable, and is capable of making her patients understand as well. She has paperwork in regards to timeline, information, questions you might have etc that’s sent with you and it’s also accessible via app in the event you have questions or need to refer back to. She is abrupt though and I can see that rubbing people the wrong way. However, I can appreciate transparency and honesty.
I’ve done IUI twice and the protocol was the same each time [at Tulsa Fertility Center]...She [nurse] was always available if I had any additional questions! The team responds quickly via app and was always available to talk on the phone if necessary...IUI insemination costs $600 prior to inseminating. The ultrasounds are $250...after two failed IUI’s with no known fertility issues we have decided to do IVF...The clinics strengths are how readily they are available if you need to contact them for any reason. Their weaknesses are that they do have a high demand of patients because they are the only fertility clinic in Tulsa. As a result, they are very busy when we are there.

She has paperwork in regards to timeline, information, questions you might have etc that’s sent with you and it’s also accessible via app in the event you have questions or need to refer back to. She is abrupt though and I can see that rubbing people the wrong way. However, I can appreciate transparency and honesty.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Like I had previously mentioned, she can at times be abrupt and that can rub people the wrong way. However, she means well and only has your best interests at heart.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
She’s great! Very personable and realistic. We have done 2 IUI’s unfortunately both resulted in negative pregnancy, but we are continuing with IVF.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Personally, I don’t struggle with infertility. As a result, my protocol wasn’t as invasive as others. Initially, we had several labs drawn. I’ve done IUI twice and the protocol was the same each time. Initially we did a baseline ultrasound preparing for ovulation. I took 5mg of clomid daily enhance my chances of multiple eggs. As a result, I would do my second ultrasound that showed if I had eggs. Then, would do a trigger shot at peak ovulation and come in 24-48 hours later to do IUI insemination.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer )
She was always available if I had any additional questions! The team responds quickly via app and was always available to talk on the phone if necessary.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The clinics strengths are how readily they are available if you need to contact them for any reason. Their weaknesses are that they do have a high demand of patients because they are the only fertility clinic in Tulsa. As a result, they are very busy when we are there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
IUI is expensive unfortunately. My insurance covered some of the labs and some medication. etc. However, IUI insemination costs $600 prior to inseminating. The ultrasounds are $250. The trigger shot was not covered by my insurance and was $100. The sperm vials were also $1,000 a piece. Overall, after two IUI’s with labs and miscellaneous charges I spent in total $8,000-10,000.
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
N/A I haven’t done IVF, yet. However, after two failed IUI’s with no known fertility issues we have decided to do IVF.

she [Dr. Shauna McKinney] takes her time to explain everything. She makes it personal...Your family success is her job and she takes that very seriously. I felt confident every step of the way with her...I am a 34 yr female with a wife. We are doing reciprocal IVF. I was placed on Gonal-f with an HCG trigger. We had 8 eggs at retrieval with two fertilized eggs. My wife will carry...We took the advice of the doctor to use both embryos at transfer. Transfer was postponed because of COVID-19 until June.
We had a great experience with everyone [at Tulsa Fertility Center] but the front office clerk-Kisha. My wife and I both use Community Care insurance. She is a physician and I am a nurse. We were told we couldn’t have an appointment without a prior authorization. This process took months without a response. We went to another doctor with poor consult-Dr. Bundren. He told us we didn’t have any options available for treatment. We finally called Tulsa Fertility back and they told us we could make an appointment but would be self pay. Obviously we can afford that but was never told that it was an option. We wasted a lot of time because of that.

Our consultation [with Dr. Shauna McKinney] was extremely rushed and I didn’t have time to ask most of the questions I had. She mainly told us why we were there (which we already knew) and then sent the nurse in to handle paperwork. We left feeling extremely confused and not sure where to go from there... I didn’t get a chance to truly explain our story and what we’ve tried with other doctors to inform her of our past treatments. I have PCOS and when I tried to bring that up she said that it didn’t matter because it was more about my husband and his fertility issues than mine which made me feel a little put off.
My main problem [at Tulsa Fertility Center] is with the lack of communication between both Dr. and patient and nurse and patient. I feel they should have a little more compassion when it comes to each individual story even tho they’ve heard a million different stories, each story is hard and special that patient and it should be treated as such...They would never give us a straight answer to how much we would have to owe until AFTER it was over and we had no choose but to pay whatever amount they told us. It felt very deceitful and very frustrating...They’re major weakness is communication with the patients. E

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I feel she could be very pleasant but it did come across like we were just a number and basic. I didn’t get a chance to truly explain our story and what we’ve tried with other doctors to inform her of our past treatments. I have PCOS and when I tried to bring that up she said that it didn’t matter because it was more about my husband and his fertility issues than mine which made me feel a little put off.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Have your questions written down and don’t feel pressured to leave without answers.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Our consultation was extremely rushed and I didn’t have time to ask most of the questions I had. She mainly told us why we were there (which we already knew) and then sent the nurse in to handle paperwork. We left feeling extremely confused and not sure where to go from there.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We’ve only had a consultation with her before deciding to look elsewhere.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Tulsa Fertility Center.
The nursing staff especially the front desk seemed like they didn’t know anything going. I tried asking a question and was told to multiple questions that she wasn’t sure and I could ask a different nurse whenever we came back for treatment. We didn’t even pick our treatment and our question was about the different treatments! They came across very uninformed! The front desk lady who handles calls and payments was clueless. Every time I called I was told she wouldn’t know how much we had to pay until after our appointment. Once we got there she called us up three different times because she said she forgot to charge us for three different things! Very annoying.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
They’re major weakness is communication with the patients. Every nurse or staff member there wants to refer you to a different person for a simple question. I don’t know if they truly don’t know or simply don’t care to answer my question. Many of my questions went unanswered.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
So far the only cost we had was for our consultation and sperm analysis. But that was a frustrating process. They would never give us a straight answer to how much we would have to owe until AFTER it was over and we had no choose but to pay whatever amount they told us. It felt very deceitful and very frustrating.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center.

Dr. Prough was very pleasant to work with. We appreciated his honesty even though it may not have been what we wanted to hear. He was patient and always answered our questions. He respected our decision on trying IUI verses IVF and he never tried to pressure us into doing more treatments then what we wanted to do.... The first cycle of IUI Dr. Prough prescribesd 100mg of clomid which I took 2 per day for 5 days and then after he performed the ultrasound and found that I had 3 mature eggs he prescribed the Ovidrel trigger shot at 250mcg.
They [Tulsa Fertility Center] were always able to work around our work schedule which was very helpful and everyone was very friendly except the nurses. I would give the overall clinic a good rating but the nurses could do a better job of spending more time with the patients and not seeming so miserable.... The nurses very extremely short tempered and showed zero compassion. To the nurses, we were just a number.

How was your experience with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. Prough was very pleasant to work with. We appreciated his honesty even though it may not have been what we wanted to hear. He was patient and always answered our questions. He respected our decision on trying IUI verses IVF and he never tried to pressure us into doing more treatments then what we wanted to do.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Trust what Dr. Prough says and be patient.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
My husband and I felt that we were treated as humans because Dr. Prough always answered all questions s even though it not have been the answer we wanted. We also appreciated that he highly recommended IVF due to my husbands male factor infertility but he completely respected our decision to at least attempt IUI. He always gave a small ounce of hope, not too much but not too little.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
The first cycle of IUI Dr. Prough prescribesd 100mg of clomid which I took 2 per day for 5 days and then after he performed the ultrasound and found that I had 3 mature eggs he prescribed the Ovidrel trigger shot at 250mcg. The results from the clomid caused me to have fatigue and bloating. Then I went in for the IUI procedure which was very quick and easy but unfortunately that cycle ended in a miscarriage at 6 weeks. The second cycle I was put on clomid again with the same dosages but when I went for my ultrasound I had 6 eggs and Dr. Prough canceled my cycle due to a high risk of multiples. The third cycle Dr. Prough prescribed 50mg of clomid once per day and Menopur injections at 75iu for 5 days. When I went for my ultrasound I had 3 eggs and then he ordered the Ovidrel trigger shot at 250mcg again and then I went back for the IUI procedure but this time it ended in a negative pregnancy test.

The nurses very extremely short tempered and showed zero compassion. To the nurses, we were just a number.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center.
I had to pay my co-insurance of all ultrasounds, medicines, pregnancy tests, labs & the IUI procedure and then I had a copay for all visits for treatments plans. Then in 2019 I had to pay all costs for the medicines, ultrasounds and the IUI procedure because my deductible started over on Jan. 1. As far as costs, I would have to get a statement from their office because there were so many I can’t remember.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney is energectic and sometimes a whirlwind when talking with her. However, she also fully answers my questions, relies on best practices and research to make adjustments to protocol. She is compassionate and understands the stress that is involved with this process. When I had questionable lab results, she called me personally to go over options.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I would advise them to come to the appointment prepared with questions and ready to speak up. Due to Dr. McKinney’s high level of energy, it is sometimes easy to get overwhelmed and forget the questions while in the office.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
This clinic is small enough that you are not treated as a number. I had easy access to my nurse through the portal, and every appointment I saw Dr. McKinney. She performs all of the ultrasounds herself. All the staff have been friendly and understanding of this process.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
4 IUIs, we used Femera, low-dose Follistim, and trigger shot. No positives. 2 retrievals— both used lupron for suppression, first used follistim, second used Gonal-F. Both resulted in 1 embryo. 3-preparations for FET. First 2 used Lupron, estrogen patches, and vaginal estrogen. 2nd one also added sildenafill suppository. Both FETs were cancelled due to thin lining, but 2nd was better. Currently doing 3rd FET with adjustment of injectable estrogen instead of patches.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nichole Flores)
All the nursing staff at the clinic is fabulous. They are caring, quick to return messages, and incredibly compassionate. They have guided me through the process and provide extremely clear and thorough instructions after each visit.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
This is a nice clinic and the staff are friendly and easy to talk to. The only issues I’ve had we’re related to submitting my consent paperwork prior to treatment. There have been a couple times I emailed to them the paperwork, and then received a phone call that it was not turned in. Even with these technical problems, they have been very friendly and understanding.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
I think costs were comparable to type rates for fertility in the US. $10,000-$15,000 for retrieval, $3,000 - $5,000 for transfer.
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Dr. McKinney explained the pros and cons of each to us, and left the decision completely up to us. There has been no pressure to choose one over the other.
What specific things went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center?
  • Lost paperwork
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center.
The only thing is miscommunication about me sending in consent paperwork (mentioned in previous comment). This was minor and did not affect my ability to complete treatment cycle

Dr McKinney did a good job with explaining the procedures and what to expect and was blunt about our chances of conceiving natural, with IUI, and with IVF. At only 19-20 years old she never once made me feel as if I was “to young” to be going to her clinic for help. One downfall is that when my first IUI failed and I wanted to begin injections I was told “everything went perfect there’s no need to change your meds” even though in my eyes it did not result in a pregnancy therefore it did not go perfect.
The staff [Tulsa Fertility Center] are amazing but they don’t listen to what the patient really wants. This clinic just uses their basic protocols instead of making each patient an individualized plan of care. The clinic itself was very nice and clean... They told me I was unable to schedule an appointment with dr McKinney in the middle of a treatment cycle and that I would have to hold off on starting IUI #3 and schedule an appointment

Towards the end of IUI #2 I sent a message in patient portal regarding again wanting to change my meds and go through with IUI #3. They told me I was unable to schedule an appointment with dr McKinney in the middle of a treatment cycle and that I would have to hold off on starting IUI #3 and schedule an appointment if I wanted to discuss changing anything. I felt I already waited enough and if I’m paying for a treatment there should be no reason why I can’t meet the Dr in the middle of the treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Look elsewhere if you want an aggressive treatment
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr McKinney’s office knew who I was the minute I walked through the door by appointment number 2. When I went to the desk to check in I hardly ever had to tell them my name
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For both my IUIs I went in once between day 2-5 for baseline ultrasound and bloodwork, then I was put on 5mg of letrazole day 5-9, mid cycle ultrasound between day 12-15, 1st I had only 1 follicle and the 2nd I had 1 good size and 1 that. Plus possibly catch up, day after midcycle ultrasound I would trigger with ovidril at 8pm then go in for IUI 36hrs later, 7dpiui progesterone bloodwork, and 14dpiui HCG bloodwork. Each cycle costed around $800 total. Both cycles failed. I believe due to the fact I ovulated earlier than the 36hr mark but her protocol is IUI 36 hours after IUI

Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
One IUI cost around $900 total with meds, ultrasounds, and bloodwork. That’s a noninjection cycle with no insurance coverage. Our quote on IVF was $12000 down + meds

Dr McKinney never rushed our appointments and she answered every question in a manner we were able to understand. She provided information on all options and allowed us to choose the one that made the most sense for our family. I was afraid we would be required to do several rounds of IUIs before we would be allowed to explore IVF, but due to our diagnosis, we were able to pursue IVF in the beginning. We spent seven months from our earliest blood test to the frozen embryo transfer - making the process much quicker than we had anticipated.
The staff [at Tulsa Fertility Center] reviewed our history and were able to discuss health concerns from the beginning...I was overwhelmed by the amount of medical history that was requested BEFORE my initial consultation. I had no idea why they would need all of that two weeks before my appointment, but I learned after meeting the staff that they want to study and prepare so that the best form of treatment is presented for the couple's specific needs.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr McKinney is the most intelligent human being I have ever met and her attention to detail was excellent. She never promised success, just that she would do everything within her power to ensure the highest chance of success which made us feel like we were more than numbers or dollar signs. Dr McKinney held my hand and hugged me when I cried at my appointments and she explained everything in a way that was not overwhelming. No one wants to walk through the doors at her clinic, but since we had to be there I am so glad we had her to be our guide through the infertility journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Write ALL of your questions down and ask every single one of them. So your research beforehand and be your own advocate. If you do not want to do certain things, be vocal. The doctor cannot read your mind. We knew we wanted to give ourselves the best chance of a successful pregnancy and live birth, regardless of costs and we expressed that in the beginning.

Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
10-12 days of stims: Follistim (50-250u) and Ganirelix (3-5 days) Follistim to stimulate the ovaries and produce eggs. Ganirelix to slow the maturation and allow the smaller follicles to catch up to the larger ones. Trigger shot of Ovidrel. FET: Birth control for one month before transfer. Approx 30 days of Lupron to suppress reproductive system. Estrogen patches, 1-4 changed every other day, to thicken lining during weeks before FET and through week 10 of pregnancy. Progesterone in oil 5 days before FET and through week 9 of pregnancy because the pregnancy was unnatural and the placenta had not taken over production.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nicole and Amanda)
The nurses were always accommodating at appointments and always passed along any questions or concerns to my doctor. The patient portal allowed me to communicate with the nurses on an as-needed basis and that convenient feature helped ease my mind when I had a question but wasn't sure to whom it should be directed.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Egg retrieval cycle and most tests associated with cycle $13,000-$14,500 Egg retrieval medication: $7,500 FET procedure: $5,000 FET meds: $2,500
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
TFC has ethical and moral basis for transferring no more than two embryos during a cycle because excessive multiples not only endangers the lives of the fetuses, the mother's safety is severely jeopardized. For those seeking treatment, not in the advanced maternal age bracket, one to two embryos may be transferred.

At the first visit Dr. Prough came off as very straight forward and a little cold. You could tell he was very intelligent but would break down information for you to understand. Every visit after that Dr. Prough was all smiles and very personable. I don’t feel at any point he gave us false hope.... In the beginning Dr. Prough said he wanted to do a fresh transfer because my hormones look good and my health is good. He did explain that if I became overstimulated that I would have to do a frozen transfer. I was on Gonal-F 150 units in the morning and 100 units at night.
The clinic [Tulsa Fertility Center] all together was great. I was informed on what I would owe at the next visit. The clinic was clean. A few times they were running a little late and I would have to wait but all together I got in and out of my appointments very fast....They do all of their monitoring appointment and labs the first appointments of the day.... I was very informed at every step of the process except for one. No one at the clinic informed me that I needed to have a full bladder for the SIS/TT. So when I showed up to the clinic I had to sit there are chug water. The staff did apologize that I was not sent the patient instructions.

How was your experience with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
At the first visit Dr. Prough came off as very straight forward and a little cold. You could tell he was very intelligent but would break down information for you to understand. Every visit after that Dr. Prough was all smiles and very personable. I don’t feel at any point he gave us false hope. The whole IVF process is very confusing and can be difficult to understand at some points. Dr. Prough did a good job explaining the procedures to us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Don’t judge Dr.Prough by your first appointment. It takes some time to warm up to him. He is caring and compassionate.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. Prough was very straight forward with what was going to happen and your changes of getting pregnant. His bedside manner was great. Always smiling and asking how you are at every visit. He always explains procedures before and during the procedure. Dr. Prough also always has time to answer your questions. I never felt rushed.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
In the beginning Dr. Prough said he wanted to do a fresh transfer because my hormones look good and my health is good. He did explain that if I became overstimulated that I would have to do a frozen transfer. I was on Gonal-F 150 units in the morning and 100 units at night. We went for weekly appointments to check labs and ultrasounds. I was on Cetrotide once a day for 4 days. I had some bruising from the injections but no side effects. When my labs and ultrasounds looked good I took my Trigger shot on 1/25/18 and did my retrieval on 1/27/18. On day 5 I had my transfer 2/1/18. The night of my transfer I started Progesterone I oil, which I would be on until I was 9-10 weeks. I went back for my pregnancy test on 2/12/18. They called me that afternoon to let me know it was positive. They said I would have to come back in a week for another test. They informed me that I would be doing weekly ultrasounds with Dr. Prough until I was 9-10 weeks. After that I would be released to my doctor. The Progesterone injections make me a little nauseous and the bruising in painful. I will happily continue the injections to keep my little miracle healthy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Amanda Johnson )
I was very informed at every step of the process except for one. No one at the clinic informed me that I needed to have a full bladder for the SIS/TT. So when I showed up to the clinic I had to sit there are chug water. The staff did apologize that I was not sent the patient instructions. The staff the would take you back to the room was kind of cold and not sociable. Every now and then there would be a different person that would help. Belinda, Dr. Prough’s Nurse, was always kind and helpful. The patient care coordinator, Amanda Johnson, always called me back in a timely manner and was very helpful. The front desk receptionist was very inviting and nice at every visit. Overall the staff was great.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The clinic all together was great. I was informed on what I would owe at the next visit. The clinic was clean. A few times they were running a little late and I would have to wait but all together I got in and out of my appointments very fast.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Monitoring appointments were hard on my work schedule. They do all of their monitoring appointment and labs the first appointments of the day. This worked out perfect for my schedule because I could get here early then get backboard to work by noon. I live 2 hours from the clinic so it’s difficult because you are spending 4 hours driving for every appointment. At one point I was going for monitoring appointments every other day. The appointments were only about 15 minutes and it flowed well. My work worked well with me which made this process even easier.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center.
All of my appointments before starting IVF were approximately $300 every visit. My insurance did not pay for anything. My SIS/TT was $895. My genetic testing was $80. We paid $10,000 for IVF and $5,600 for medication. We have had to refill the Progesterone in oil twice which is $120 for 2 vials. My last 2 visits with Dr. Prough have been OB Ultrasounds and I paid $198 for both. I have 2 more OB ultrasounds, which will be $198 a piece, then I will be released to my doctor. On top of all of those costs I also have to pay for gas for every visit. I drive a total of 4 hours for each appointment and miss a half day of work, sometimes a whole day of it’s a later appointment.
Describe Stanley Prough's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
From the first visit Dr. prough made it very clear that he will only transfer a total of 2 embryos. He was fine with transferring one but would not do more than 2. My husband and I were completely fine with this information because we would not want to transfer more than 2. That is not safe for the mother or baby. I only transferred one embryo because that is all that I had. We did not have any to freeze.
What specific things went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center?
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center.
The only time they did not provide all of the information is when I went for my SIS/TT. Apparently I was suppose to have a full bladder for this procedure but no one sent me the patient information. When I got to the clinic I went to the restroom, as it’s a 2 got drive, and when I came out they said that I needed a full bladder and was not suppose to use the restroom. I told them that no one told me that. After looking in my chart they apologized for not sending the patient information. That was the only time this happened.

Very direct and confident in her treatment plan. [Dr. McKinney] Started us off slowly so we didn't overstimulate and explained risks of mulitples very clearly. Difficult at times coordinating with her office though since we are not from the Tulsa area....First IUI - Fermara for 5 days and produced 1 mature follicle. Did not get pregnant with IUI Second IUI - Fermara for 5 days plus several days of FSH injections. Lowest dosage of FSH to encourage two follicles for this cycle.
The office admins [Tulsa Fertility Ctr] were snarky and difficult to work with at times. The receptionist was rude and we always had issues with our insurance. It was the worst part of the whole experience...Communication was limited to their patient portal and sometimes it would take them a long time to get back to you. When you are working with a time sensitive cycle it was stressful and had me worried that I wouldn't hear from them in time.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I have been nothing but pleased with Dr. McKinney. She has been through infertility herself, which makes it easy for her to show compassion toward her patients.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Be open about your expectations and timeline. She understands every patient is on a different timeline and might want to be less or more aggressive with treatment. She will give you her recommendation, but she will also respect your wishes.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?

Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Dr. McKinney discovered I had a very low ovarian reserve for my age. She told me the most aggressive route would be to harvest as many eggs as I could before trying to become pregnant. This is because eggs can’t be retrieved during pregnancy, and my ovarian reserve would only further diminish as time passes. We went through one round of IVF and retrieved 8 eggs. We are still waiting to hear back how many made it to day 5. We plan on doing 1-2 more rounds of egg retrieval before transferring any embryos.

One round of egg retrieval with cryopreservation and ICSI was $15,000. Medications cost $6,000. We have not transferred yet, but it will cost $5,000 without medications.

I love how positive he [Dr. Prough] was. After waiting for what seemed like a lifetime, he finally helped me have hope again. He was thourough, and really wanted to get to the root of my problem, even some that were not fertility related....[Eset Approach] He did not have a preference. On transfer day, I only had two embryos left and they were both FANTASTC, so we used both. I have to perfectly healthy baby boys now. They are 6.
The office staff [Tusla Fertility Ctr] is not organized at all. Making appointments, getting insurance pre-auth of any kind is a nightmare. Be prepared to have to take some of these things into your own hands. You must be persistent in getting what you need.... Sometimes I would have to make multiple trips to the office in one day or back and forth to a lab, because things were forgotten.... It makes me sad for Dr. Prough because he is SO great, but his office staff is just awful.

Dr. Prough is very "cut to the chase". He was frank and honest with us after we had suffered through infertility for 5 years, while I didn't necessarily feel like just another number to him I would certainly say that he keeps his emotions out of his work.... Months before we started stims, Dr. Prough chose for us to do a FET because of the likelihood that I would experience OHSS due to my PCOS. I started Gonal-F on November 21st of 2017 and 2 weeks later he had me add Cetrotide before prescribing me 2 Lupron trigger shots for my December 5th retrieval.
I was not entirely impressed with the front desk staff at Tulsa Fertility Clinic, as the "face" of the clinic I would hope for more positive attitudes and enthusiasm. The phlebotomist is lovely and made the unpleasantness of having my blood drawn seem nil. The financial department was always very helpful.... staff is very helpful and easily accessible through the patient portal so I was always able to ask all of my questions when I remembered them

How was your experience with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
We met with Dr. Prough after our 6th failed IUI and our 12th failed medicated cycle, he was clearly agitated with the over 200 pages of my medical history and he was very frank with us in telling us why every other treatment we had done had not worked and why my previous doctors had been wrong. As you can imagine, I was overly emotional in our initial meeting and I misinterpreted his honesty. I now know that his frustration was not with me but with the unnecessary things I had been put through. During my appointments Dr. Prough is thorough but he is expedient, he certainly doesn't hold your hand through every step. He answered every question and concern that I had and never made me feel like a burden but, often, the appointment was over before I could remember my questions. (His staff is very helpful and easily accessible through the patient portal so I was always able to ask all of my questions when I remembered them.) I am now nearly 6 weeks pregnant after our FET and I have no doubt in my mind that it is due to Dr. Prough's expertise. There was never a surprise during my cycles and he seemed to be able to anticipate exactly what my body would do. While I know that his style of "doctoring" might not be everyone's cup of tea, I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is experiencing infertility because I believe that if he could help almost anyone to achieve pregnancy. He may come across as cold but I see him as a no-nonsense doctor who truly wants his patients to reach their goals.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I would advise any new patient to go in with an open mind and to expect complete honesty.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. Prough is very "cut to the chase". He was frank and honest with us after we had suffered through infertility for 5 years, while I didn't necessarily feel like just another number to him I would certainly say that he keeps his emotions out of his work.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Months before we started stims, Dr. Prough chose for us to do a FET because of the likelihood that I would experience OHSS due to my PCOS. I started Gonal-F on November 21st of 2017 and 2 weeks later he had me add Cetrotide before prescribing me 2 Lupron trigger shots for my December 5th retrieval. It's my understanding that he chose for me to do 2 triggers because patients with PCOS are harder to trigger. After my retrieval my estradiol was over 3500 so his choice for me to do a frozen transfer was spot on. I started Lupron on February 2, 2018. He then added baby asprin, SEildenafil, and Estradiol on the 13th. I finished the Sildenafil and Lupron part of the protocol on the 27th and he had me start the PIO on the 28th in preparation for my March 5th transfer. On March 15th my 1st HCG Beta was 100.8 and on the 22nd it had risen to 3136.3. I will be 6 weeks pregnant on the 29th and will have my first ultrasound.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Yesenia)
Yesenia has never been unkind but I have not been pleased with her communication, however, most of our communication has been over the patient portal and I recognize that sometimes that can be misinterpreted. While I believe that she is very efficient at her job, I felt that Yesenia lacked the kind of warmth and compassion that I had hoped for during this sensitive and emotional time of my life.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
I was not entirely impressed with the front desk staff at Tulsa Fertility Clinic, as the "face" of the clinic I would hope for more positive attitudes and enthusiasm. The phlebotomist is lovely and made the unpleasantness of having my blood drawn seem nil. The financial department was always very helpful.

Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
From day one we sat down and went over every detail and talked about what we have previously done. He then was very eager to start in on blood test, egg test, sperm test and numerous u/s with me having a irregular menstrual cycle. we previously did Clomid, and femara with our 1st doctor we did from 50 to 200 on Clomid and that didn't work. then we did one round of femara and they sent us to Dr. Stanley Prough. We currently have done every test and everything needed with Dr. Stanley Prough. All we are waiting on now is trying to figure out funding so we can start IVF then we can proceed to trying to complete our family.

Dr. McKinney connected eith me and although she was blunt she was very easy to talk to and made us feel like we had a plan we could try....Despite having two failed cycles with Dr. McKinney I had been really happy with her until i saw another dr recently who was shocked that in 2016 she did day 3 PGS testing and fresh transfer since the standard for some time has been day 5 biopsy and PGS testing followed by an FET...we still wonder if this is why only 2 embryos were normal out of 11 tested.
The financial department [Tulsa Fertility Ctr] was frustrating. They would respond to emails and phone calls. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. They have a wonderful person named Patty who draws blood and is AMAZING at her job....Our IVF cycles were about 12-13 thousand dollars. PGS testing was 5,000 with 2500 being paid to the testing place and 2500 being paid to the clinic.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Despite having two failed cycles with Dr. McKinney I had been really happy with her until i saw another dr recently who was shocked that in 2016 she did day 3 PGS testing and fresh transfer since the standard for some time has been day 5 biopsy and PGS testing followed by an FET...we still wonder if this is why only 2 embryos were normal out of 11 tested. Also my current Dr figured out that I have a rare congenital uterine abnormality (uterine didelphys) and although this wasn't totally Dr. McKinney fault as the radiologist who incorrectlt interpreted the results of the MRI she ordered after having and HSG that indicated a possible mullerian abnormality...I wish she would have pushed a little more and asked for the CD images to look at it herself. I also wish she would have done a hysteroscopy done before my IVF cycles.; my current Dr is doing this and I have been told it helps to show the Dr more of the uterus and what to expect as well as if there is any infection. I wish she would have done one of these...Maybe one of our cycles would have worked then.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Do your own research and ask about other possible tests to be done, advocate for yourself and you can also ask to get her partner Dr. Prough's advice if you want.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney connected eith me and although she was blunt she was very easy to talk to and made us feel like we had a plan we could try.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For my two IVF cycles the medicines I took were follistem, ganirelix, PIO, the trigger shot. One thing i thought Dr. McKinney did well was raising my dose of follistem from cycle 1 to cycle 2 and waiting a little longer before retrieving on the second cycle and we had much better results as far as good eggs etc.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Tulsa Fertility Center.
The nursing staff was wonderful. I did get shamed a little when one of the IVF coordinators (was not a nurse) got upset with me when I was just a little short on my follistem and I had to be given some that was donated. She was angry that we were able to tell the pharmacy that we needed one less pen of follistem as we had some left over from our previous cycle. She said we shouldn't have been able to do this. I understand her point but I also understand where I was coming from since the pens were $1100 each!

Dr. McKinney simply told us they would not transfer more than two. She did say that transferring two increases your odds that one will implant but I have heard conflicting data since then so I'm not sure what to think.
What specific things went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center?
  • Provided conflicting information

Dr. Prough was fair in his treatment. I was a little dismayed by his once commenting that because of my age (39 at the time), my eggs may be old, because I know plenty of women my age that conceive all the time. But other than that, he was always direct, open, honest & compassionate in my care. Dr. Prough is a 'shoot-from-the-hip' kind of guy. He's caring without being too mushy & in his feelings & he seems to want your journey to pregnancy to be successful.
Jazmine is the sweetest, most sincere nurse [at Tulsa Fertility Center] I've EVER worked with in my life! She's compassionate, caring, thorough, & effective in her treatment. If anything, I miss going to Tulsa to see her...she was the best!!!!!... I think this clinic is really good at what they do! I think they're efficient & caring. The front desk staff (Jamie) is on task, my nurse (Jazmine) is great, & Dr. Prough is awesome to work with as well. It's been a good experience working with that team...they're just so far away from us (2 hours) & the cost of treatment was wearing us down a bit.

Be ready to take in a LOT of information very quickly! Dr. Prough can speak really quickly about some things because he's so well versed in his area. Write down terms you don't know and ask questions...he's receptive to giving more information as needed. But he talks fast, so be ready and pay attention!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. Prough was very up front with all treatment...very direct. He never made me feel sorry for myself & was totally understanding in my frustrations with not being able to conceive.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Dr. Prough said I had a good egg reserve for my age, but he was just unsure of the quality of my eggs. I'd had 3 unsuccessful IUI's and he said the best way to know the quality of my eggs is to do IVF, where they can be seen &monitored more microscopically. After my last failed IUI, Dr. Prough was still confident in my reception of the fertility drugs (Clomid & Trigger shot), so he recommended another IUI, but financially, we didn't want risk another disappointment after 3 months in a row.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
We underwent several IUIs, a cancelled IVF, and a failed IVF before Dr. McKinney happened to mention that in addition to advanced maternal age and low AMH (which was normal before the two-month delay we experienced after starting with TFC), we also had a problem on the male side. His test results indicated that he was on the very low end of the range for a particular number (but in the “normal” range according to the report we have), and we were never told that it was a problem until our post-failed-IVF appointment. Dr. McKinney couldn’t believe that she never mentioned it, and just stated, “Well, that’s why we were doing ICSI,” but did not express any sympathy as to why were upset that we weren’t told specifically prior to that point.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Don't go here unless you like to feel like a statistic.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I used the Ganirelix protcol with Follistim to stimulate ovarian production. My first attempt only produced 3 eggs, so she adjusted the next round to increase the dosage. I never felt that the doctor was able to manipulate her decisions or set expectations based on my specific situation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Tulsa Fertility Center.
At our initial visit, we were instructed to complete our lab work and then we’d be able to schedule our treatment. After not hearing back for two weeks, the nurse asked me to schedule a follow-up visit, which we had been told we didn’t need to do. In addition, I was assured that all of our previous records had been received, but in this two-week-later communication, was told that in fact, not all of the records were received. TFC was missing my most recent pap smear and my boyfriend’s test results. You would think that it would be simple for one professional to be in contact with another to ensure that all these records had been received. Instead, I wasn’t notified until two weeks after-the-fact, after being told that everything had been received, that they were missing my Pap smear result. In all, it took 6 weeks and at least 10-20 phone calls on my part to get that last little bit of information transferred, which of course, delayed our treatment for two months. It’s entirely possible that these were my last fertile months; my bloodwork afterward showed a decreased hormone level. I underwent many IUIs and two IVFs without any significant pain, so I’m not a wimp. However, there was one procedure after which I experienced such extreme cramping, I had tears in my eyes and could barely stand up. I hobbled out of my exam room and asked if they had any Tylenol or Advil, and not one person looked up from their computer or offered to help me up front.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
First round was covered by insurance, 2nd was about $15,000 (Including meds) because we had reached our insurance max.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Tulsa Fertility Center.
My advice for people seeking fertility treatment in the Tulsa area: go somewhere else. We worked with Dr. McKinney for over a year, and throughout the entire process, were provided nothing but incomplete information and frustration. To be clear, this review and our experience would be the same regardless of the outcome. We did not get pregnant after 2 cycles of IVF, but I’ve been planning to write this review regardless of the outcome. We had started IUI cycles before we moved to Oklahoma, and our initial impression of TFC was very positive due to their organized process. Unfortunately, that process is not flexible for those who have already undergone treatments elsewhere. Problems with starting their treatment after starting at another clinic was the beginning of our tiresome journey, and I wish we had moved to a different clinic when these problems first arose. At our initial visit, we were instructed to complete our lab work and then we’d be able to schedule our treatment. After not hearing back for two weeks, the nurse asked me to schedule a follow-up visit, which we had been told we didn’t need to do. In addition, I was assured that all of our previous records had been received, but in this two-week-later communication, was told that in fact, not all of the records were received. TFC was missing my most recent pap smear and my boyfriend’s test results. You would think that it would be simple for one professional to be in contact with another to ensure that all these records had been received. Instead, I wasn’t notified until two weeks after-the-fact, after being told that everything had been received, that they were missing my Pap smear result. In all, it took 6 weeks and at least 10-20 phone calls on my part to get that last little bit of information transferred, which of course, delayed our treatment for two months. It’s entirely possible that these were my last fertile months; my bloodwork afterward showed a decreased hormone level. Although the staff seems very nice, they are fairly insensitive. I underwent many IUIs and two IVFs without any significant pain, so I’m not a wimp. However, there was one procedure after which I experienced such extreme cramping, I had tears in my eyes and could barely stand up. I hobbled out of my exam room and asked if they had any Tylenol or Advil, and not one person looked up from their computer or offered to help me up front. We underwent several IUIs, a cancelled IVF, and a failed IVF before Dr. McKinney happened to mention that in addition to advanced maternal age and low AMH (which was at a normal level before the two-month delay we experienced after starting with TFC), we also had a problem on the male side.

Dr. McKinney couldn’t believe that she never mentioned it, and just stated, “Well, that’s why we were doing ICSI,” but did not express any sympathy as to why were upset that we weren’t told specifically prior to that point. Our final IVF cycle failed, and instead of getting a phone call (which they indicate you will receive if it fails), I found out on the portal. Logging into their portal expecting good news (since we didn’t get a phone call), and seeing a blank egg report with the words “no viable embryos” was just beyond words. The only good thing about having completed our cycles with TFC is that we don’t have to deal with them anymore. If we decide to continue treatment, we will travel outside of Oklahoma.

She [Dr. McKinney] is very friendly and personable for the most part. I had one experience that kind of left me feeling disappointed with her. At my final ultrasound before trigger, 15 follicles were counted, however; only 8 were retrieved at my retrieval. When I asked why not more, she did explain that not all were mature but then proceeded to tell me that she wouldn't come to my work and question how I did my job...No rationale was given to me, the patient, as to why certain medications were used instead of others.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
She doesn't spend much time in the room after the 'important' stuff was done. If you have questions be sure to have them ready and start talking as soon as she gets done. Nothing is explained as to what exactly she is looking for at the baseline/miscycle ultrasounds. She is very friendly and personable for the most part. I had one experience that kind of left me feeling disappointed with her. At my final ultrasound before trigger, 15 follicles were counted, however; only 8 were retrieved at my retrieval. When I asked why not more, she did explain that not all were mature but then proceeded to tell me that she wouldn't come to my work and question how I did my job. I was a little taken aback, but as I was still affected by the anesthesia, I didn't say anything more. I really like her overall but that one comment just left a bad taste in my mouth.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?

She was very empathetic, having gone through infertility herself. She said understood exactly what we were going through.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
No rationale was given to me, the patient, as to why certain medications were used instead of others. Overlapped BC and 10ui Lupron for 4 days then only 10ui Lupron for 7 days. Lowered to 5ui after that. Added in 200ui AM and 150ui PM Folistim and Dexamethosone for 9 days. Trigger at 11pm on day 10. Retrieval in day 12. Started Doxycycline and Medrol for 5 days. I had 15 follicles, 8 eggs, 4 mature, 3 fertilized, 1 made it to day 5 transfer. Waiting now for beta.

We've gone through 4 IUI cycles [with Dr. McKinney] in which we used follistim and ovidrel. After the 4th, we decided to move on to IVF with ICSI (to help with male factor infertility, low motility) using Follistim...Our first cycle was cancelled due to a cyst. We made it to retrieval during the second cycle but weren't able to transfer after PGS testing deemed the remaining embryos weren't of a good quality. After undergoing 2 surgeries (one to drain a cyst by my gynecologist and one to remove it by Dr. McKinney and her partner Dr. Prough) we started our 2nd official IVF cycle in late March.
They [Tulsa Fertility Center] have all been so kind and understanding. I found out today that most of the employees in the office have gone through fertility treatments of some sort. That means a lot to me because it means they really understand the process...It is very organized. I've been in and out quickly which is important to me because we travel 2 hours one way for appointments. Even though it's a quick process, I've NEVER felt rushed. They always take time to answer any questions we have.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney is very personable. She's very candid with you and relates to you as a patient. I've always felt valued as a patient and that she's looking out for my best interest to help us start a family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Know that she will be very candid and doesn't sugar coat the information she's telling you.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
She relates to what we're going through and really listens to and answers all questions we have no matter how long it takes.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We've gone through 4 IUI cycles in which we used follistim and ovidrel. After the 4th, we decided to move on to IVF with ICSI (to help with male factor infertility, low motility) using Follistim. Our first cycle was cancelled due to a cyst. We made it to retrieval during the second cycle but weren't able to transfer after PGS testing deemed the remaining embryos weren't of a good quality. After undergoing 2 surgeries (one to drain a cyst by my gynecologist and one to remove it by Dr. McKinney and her partner Dr. Prough) we started our 2nd official IVF cycle in late March. I'm currently on Lupron and Dexamethasone and stimming with follistim. We found out today during a mid-cycle US that we will still retrieve but have to wait to transfer due to issues with my lining. I'll continue to go this week until they are ready to retrieve my eggs.

I thought Dr.McKinney was up front, direct, and a realist, but also had compassion for my situation at the same time. I feel like she cares about me and my family even though we are one of thousands of patients she sees.
I realize the nursing staff [at Tulsa Fertility Center] is busy, but sometimes I do feel like a number to them. They always answer my questions, but I feel like I'm annoying them at times. But they are friendly and helpful....The front end of office isn't that organized. I had a very difficult time getting started because no one will answer the phone when you call and if you miss their return call you end up playing phone tag. But once you get on the schedule and past the intake coordinator, it's better.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Ask questions because she'll take the time to answer them. Also make suggestions or ask if something should be considered. She will let you be your own advocate without making you feel crazy.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney made me feel like I was her only patient while talking to me. She gave me individualized care and took my questions and suggestions seriously.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
With DOR, I began on a mini ivf cycle and a birth control priming protocol. So, I took BCP, then Clomid for 10 days then gonal f on days 8, 10 and 12 with trigger on day 15 and retrieval on day 17. I am on an estrogen priming protocol with micro dose flare. I don't have my flow sheet yet.

Dr. Prough knows his stuff. He has been doing this for years and you can tell that he is experienced in the field of fertility. He knew what was wrong with me before doing the testing. He was professional to an extent, there were some comments that were questionable.... I wish he would have pushed more with IVF and explain that it is the only thing that will work but instead we wasted money doing IUI.... The biggest thing with him and his comments were that he made me feel like a kid who makes bad choices.
The worst part of my experience at Tulsa fertility was one of the nurses of Dr. Prough. She was horrible to communicate to and almost never understood the questions I asked through the online portal and then didn't answer the other half of my questions. She too assumed I knew all of this prior to even doing any of it.... And it was always about the money at the front desk and half the time if you asked them a question they would tell me to ask my nurse.

How was your experience with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. Prough knows his stuff. He has been doing this for years and you can tell that he is experienced in the field of fertility. He knew what was wrong with me before doing the testing. He was professional to an extent, there were some comments that were questionable. He was not always clear on what was going on. He kind of assumed someone else would tell us or that we already knew. We decided to do IUI first even though he said that IVF was the way to go with our issues. I wish he would have pushed more with IVF and explain that it is the only thing that will work but instead we wasted money doing IUI. Sometimes he was talkative and sometimes he was not. When it was a busy day it his bedside manner would take a back seat and he would be all professional to do what was needed and be done. The biggest thing with him and his comments were that he made me feel like a kid who makes bad choices. With that, I respect him because of his knowledge.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
It takes a little while to warm up to Dr. Prough and the way he runs things. Listen to what he has to say while also ignoring his snide comments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
There were some times that it was personalized and other times where they were so busy that I felt like just another number walking in and out of the door to them.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
He ordered for me to be on clomid and I questioned that because I had been on it for four rounds previously when he said that he wanted to use the ultrasound to see what clomid did, so I said okay. We did two rounds of IUI with this along with a trigger shot (Ovidrel) to make me ovulate. He did suggest from the results that we had to go straight to IVF, but we did not feel like he exaggerated enough the seriousness of how much we would need to do IVF. His response was that it wont hurt to do IUI. If I had known how serious it was that we needed IVF that is what we would have chose first.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Belinda)
The worst part of my experience at Tulsa fertility was one of the nurses of Dr. Prough. She was horrible to communicate to and almost never understood the questions I asked through the online portal and then didn't answer the other half of my questions. She too assumed I knew all of this prior to even doing any of it. Because of her lack of putting in the request for the IUI patient ed stuff we were put off weeks before we could start.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
Again, like I have said it mainly has to do with them assuming that we knew what door to go to or where to sit to get my blood drawn. And it was always about the money at the front desk and half the time if you asked them a question they would tell me to ask my nurse.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center.
At the time of seeing Dr. Prough, we had fertility coverage on our insurance so the first appointment of $290 was covered except for our $80 copay. Then he requested an ultrasound that cost $465 that my insurance eventually ended up paying so we had credit that helped for the first IUI and appointments then our second IUI insurance paid most except $385. Between blood draw fees and copays with all the appointments we spend almost $1,200 at this clinic.

He was professional, not warm or cold. Just doing his job, I respect that...He would go into details on complications, medicine, and the plan if pressed but doesn't seem to subscribe to updated science and technology. He didn't want to change protocol after retrieving fewer eggs than he originally thought he could get. Just wanted to try the same thing again, expecting different results. He's old school, and it shows.
Everyone from the front desk to the transfer staff was unfriendly, talked to you as if you should know what they know, made you wait until the last minute of the day to return a call or email, any information that was given to you had no page numbers or sections of when it is applicable to your cycle so you were stuck rereading 40 pages everytime you had a question because you never knew what page it would be on, the nurse who called me to tell me my transfer did not result in a pregnancy was the most chipper, and happy person, as if she was calling to tell me I won the lottery, but then said it didn't take and wanted to schedule a follow-up with the Doctor in the same breath. Highly inappropriate with ZERO compassion. I hated every interaction with the staff.

Record your conversations so you can research and discuss your concerns at the next visit.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center?
He was professional, not warm or cold. Just doing his job, I respect that.
Describe the protocols Stanley Prough used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Follistim 200 units 2x a day, Ganirelix 250 mcg I had 12 eggs, 7 were empty, 3 were too mature and 2 became 5 day Blasts. He originally thought we could get 6 good eggs. But when pushed it took him 2 meetings to agree to up my meds to 250 and retrieve one day earlier.

Highly inappropriate with ZERO compassion. I hated every interaction with the staff.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
I feel the clinic and staff are stuck in the late 90's with their technology and knowledge. Their support and office structure is not set up to make patients feel accommodated and cared for. Everything from the awkward waiting room to the billing, and the final results makes you feel like a number and all they want is your money.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Stanley Prough at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Around $15,000. $5,000. of which were meds.

Dr. McKinney always had a smile on her face and always welcomed me with a warm hug... I never felt like any question was to small and she always reassured me every step of the way. There were only a few appointments I didn't see her. And only for small stuff like blood draining and sonograms. Every big appointment she was there and sat and listened and answered every question....Dr. McKinney showed she really cared about us during treatment. She always listened to our concerns and talked us through the process the entire time.
Strengths-everyone [at Tulsa Fertility Center] was super sweet and supportive. They always greet you with a smile. I feel like they personalized your experience. They got to really know us and our situation...They got us in very quickly for our first appointment. Went in for the first time in January and started treatment the next month when my cycle started...Nichole was amazing. Always greeted us with a smile and would help us with any questions we had.

Dr. McKinney showed she really cared about us during treatment. She always listened to our concerns and talked us through the process the entire time.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
My body responded very good to the treatment Dr. McKinney wrote up. I started out taking birth control and after a month I started Lupron injections to help suppress my system. After a week or so of that injection we added Gonel-f. I would take an injection in the morning and in the evening. I stemmed for 11 days. At that time I was told I could use the trigger shot. My body responded great. I went in for egg reieval and they collected 16 eggs. Out of the 16, 11 were mature and 7 fertilized. We did a 5 day transfer of two embryos. Unfortunately we miscarried a few weeks later.

Strengths-everyone was super sweet and supportive. They always greet you with a smile. I feel like they personalized your experience. They got to really know us and our situation.

Went in for the first time in January and started treatment the next month when my cycle started. Weaknesses-I can't say I really have any.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
We had amazing insurance so I just paid a co pay. But the medication if I didn't have insurance would have been between 5,000-8,000 depending on the treatment plan. I believe the ivf process would have been around 10,000-13,000.

Dr Prough has always been very sensiive and honest with us.... We were completely blind going into first see Dr Prough. His approach is thourough and he want you to know every in and out of the process. He also helped me to stay hopeful during such a daunting time... First IUI: Letrozole for 5 days, followed by 50 units of Follistem and Ovitril trigger. Progesterone suppositories on day 4 after IUI. Result: negative test
So far the only gripe I have is the financial department. They [Tulsa Fertility Center] have not explained things very well for my upcoming IVF process. Even after I have told them how I need information for loan reasons. They would wait over a week before responding to me.... All nurses have been very sweet. However, they will only communicate via the Patient Portal which can be confusing and difficult at times
