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.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The clinic is a very calming place to enter. The aesthetics of the waiting area make it a comfortable place to sit. The color scheme is up to date and doesn't make you feel like it is an institution like hospitals seem. The cleanliness is upkept and I have never noticed any area that I have concerns with.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Walking into Wisconsin Fertility Institute, I felt like a person. I am always greeted with hugs and kind words. It's like catching up with a friend that you haven't seen in a while. I say this for all the staff, from the receptionist, to the nurses, to the Drs, and the other behind the scenes staff. This is by far very different treatment than any other medical office I have ever stepped foot into.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff treats you and communicates to you in a manner in which you know and feel like they have your best interest in mind. They communicate very closely with the doctor and they have always all been on the same page. There is very little turn over in the clinic, so over the course of the last 5 years, we have all become familar faces to each other, which makes for a family like realtionship. They return phone calls promptly and are more than willing to answer or find any answer to what you need clarified. They seem very knowledgable and are able to make every visit comfortable.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is open and candid with her thoughts, treatment plans and goals. She is very encouraging an positive and makes the environment more relaxed. She wants to be sure she covers all questions and concerns. Always starting with a hug just sets a great mood regardless of what the visit is for. Having to be able to speak directly with her in person and over the phone permits for a close knit relationship with a provider during this journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
If you have questions, ask them. She is more than willing to explain and answer them. My husband and I both understand things very different and he likes the scientific explanation for treatments, results and tests. She is always patient in giving us both the thoughts and descriptions that we need to understand our "journey".
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I have done hybrid cycles and when they don't produce the results she is looking for she changes the protocol. For my second IVF, the Rx were very different than what I took 5 years ago. Knowing that she keeps up with the ever changing research and processes is very easing to know that she is geared to produce results.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
IUI treatments were roughly $600-800. IVF with a transfer was approximately $15000. FET $4000.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr. Pritts best informed us of the risks and success rates for both singles and doubles. We chose to freeze our first 6 in doubles and our second 7 in doubles and one single. We will opt again to transfer in doubles. She advises of the risks associated with transferring doubles and allowed me to opt for what my husband and I agreed to transfer.

There are only a handful of nurses there [at Wisconsin Fertility Institute] and you get to know them and they get to know you very well. They are all so very compassionate, gentle, and great to talk to... I love the fact that it's an independent clinic; you can drive right up to the front door and go right in. They do everything in-house except for genetic testing. The clinic is well decorated and very soothing. Even the financial liaison takes the time to really talk with you, find out your insurance information, calls you back right away. The only weakness I could really identify would be that because it is a small clinic, sometimes you end up waiting for a while for some appointments.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
We had a consultation at a larger University Hospital in Iowa, and it was a nightmare. I didn't understand anything when I left and we were sent a map in the mail to try to find where to go. This clinic was night and day different. I love the fact that it's an independent clinic; you can drive right up to the front door and go right in. They do everything in-house except for genetic testing. The clinic is well decorated and very soothing. Even the financial liaison takes the time to really talk with you, find out your insurance information, calls you back right away. The only weakness I could really identify would be that because it is a small clinic, sometimes you end up waiting for a while for some appointments.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Compared to a larger, university clinic we had done a consultation with years prior, this is a small, warm, inviting clinic where they tell you like it is, but treat you well and with compassion. I got to know every nurse there and they all knew me by name. When I was worried or literally freaked-out about something we may have messed up, Dr. Pritts returned my phone call at 9:30 at night to talk us through it.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There are only a handful of nurses there and you get to know them and they get to know you very well. They are all so very compassionate, gentle, and great to talk to. We often brought in snacks to thank them!
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is very blunt. She is kind and has a good bedside manner, but she will tell you everything upfront and let you know your chances, good or bad. She recommended we use donor sperm, but, as a couple, said that we did not want to go through everything to not try to use my husband's sperm. Once she knew that was how we felt, she honored that, was fully on-board, and came-up with the most successful plan she could, continually discussed what the research said was most likely to be successful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be prepared for bluntness, but someone who will be in your corner, no matter what.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I do not remember which specific protocol I was on, but, I do know I was taking Gonal-F RFF redi-ject (went through 1.5 900IU pens) and Menopur (75IU/VL) daily to grow my eggs. I then took Cetrotide (.25 MG/VL for 5 days I think?) to make sure the eggs did not release. To trigger the release of the eggs, they had me take C-Leuprolide (.4ML) and the added injection of Ovidrel (.5ML/SYR) because their research shows that about 5% of the population needs this added boost. We found out (after a horrific night of bending the needle and having to come in and do bloodwork the next day) that I was part of that 5% that needed it and needed to buy another dose. After harvesting the eggs, they had me do the vaginal insert of Cabergoline (.5 MG) to help ensure that I did not develop hyperstimulation. And also Doxycycline 100 MG for 5 days. The embryos were grown for 5 days, samples taken for genetic testing, and then frozen. I was instructed to let them know the first day of my cycle. I then started Estradiol (2MG) daily and then started C-Progesterone in Ethyl Oleate injections (2x per day) 11 days prior to the transfer of the embryos. They said that they preferred the frozen transfer because it allowed the woman's body to get back to baseline because sometimes, their research showed that when a fresh transfer was done, the hormones might not be quite right. I was instructed to take the drugs that I did so that my body was more likely to accept the embryo. I had to continue the Progesterone injections until I received a positive pregnancy test. At that point, I could switch to Endometrin vaginal insert progesterone of 100 MG 3 times per day, all through the first trimester.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The medications were some of the most expensive parts of the treatment because of my insurance. Thousands of dollars until my deductible for medication was met and then it paid for 90% of the drugs. Without insurance, the procedures would have been around $10,000, but my insurance covered 90% of that. Embryo storage is $400 for a year and I cannot remember what the initial cost was to freeze them.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The doctor, my husband, and I all talked about it. Dr. Pritts decided to implant 1 embryo first because everything had gone well from the start and if that did not work, they would transfer 2 the next time. She also would have allowed us to choose the gender (we knew what we had because of the genetic testing), but we told her we didn't care and just wanted our best shot!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She seems genuinely invested in your story. She is your biggest cheerleader and a shoulder to cry on when needed. She has been in your shoes and it shows.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are all so welcoming and create an environment of compassion. They remember who you are, they ask questions about your life outside of this infertility journey, and they always have a smile for you even on your hard days.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is so busy, but the second she walks into your room, you have her full attention until she walks out. She answers questions promptly when you call. I have high anxiety about medical procedures so she always takes the time to make sure all of my questions are answered.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Don’t wait! Call now and make an appointment!
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The first focus of my treatment plan was ovulation. My OB/GYN had given me the biggest dose of femara that she was comfortable giving and that did not result in ovulation so that was the focus. Dr. Pritts determined the dosage she thought would work, but before I could get started, she ordered an HSG and some lab work to see if there were any underlying issues. She also evaluated my husband and put him on clomid to assist in sperm count. After a few failed cycles of timed intercourse, she determined that we should try IUI. Unfortunately the three IUI cycles were also not effective, and we are now working to prepare for IVF.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Each follicular ultrasound was $250 and every IUI with a fresh transfer was $450.

Clinic [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] is very spa like. It has a very relaxing feeling. I feel the overall approach to help people. I’ve never been treated as a number. Scheduling appointments is easy and we’re able to be seen with little notice. There is also no wait to start procedures. Staff is available 24/7...Nursing staff is kind and knowledgeable...Based on the results I’m told [by Dr. Gretchen Collins] when to trigger with Ovidrel (if needed) and when to schedule my IUI. My beginning dose of Letrozole was producing 2-3 follicles, I asked to be put on a higher dose and Dr. Collins was willing to do so...is optimistic about getting me pregnant. She takes the time to answer all my questions. Her approach is very personable...She has a good sense of humor, which can help keep the conversation light when needed. She is very knowledgeable about many areas of infertility and will support her treatment plan with research. A couple concerns I have is that her prognosis for us to conceive seemed a little less optimistic than what others with the same age and diagnosis as I have (based on information shared in support groups). Dr. Collins gave me information on supplements to take to improve my egg quality but is not recording any of the supplements I am taking. Overall, we are very happy with the care we’re receiving.

You do not feel like you are in a doctors office. It is always clean. The staff never makes you wait long. You are in seeing the doctor in no time. Dr. Pritts is a god send. I can feel her compassion in person & over the phone. She truly wants this for us & will make sure it happens. Just reminds us that sometimes it takes time. The clinic manager, Chris was the first person I spoke to when I called to set up my initial consult. She could relate to what you were going through & knew her clinic & staff could step up to the challenge to help us out. Everything for us is out of pocket, Chris checks pricing & provides us with financing options. I could not image going anywhere else. This feels like home to me.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is such a warm hearted person. She knows you by name, knows your treatment, your medications & your struggles. She makes us feel so welcome when we show up for appointments or consults. She tells it like it is, which is what we need to hear. I don't need an RE to sugar coat anything. She truly wants to see you happy & will give her all to get you pregnant.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Megan)
Everyone at Wisconsin Fertility Institute is wonderful. Megan has always been there for us. She is a bright smiling face with so much positive energy when we walk in the door. She gets so incredibly excited for you when you have a positive reaction to Letrozole. You cannot help but smile when you are with her. She was the on call provider for one of our IUIs. I text her I peaked & she responded in no time, scheduling us for IUI the very next morning. She is the coordinator for IVF training, so we have been working a lot with her going over medications. She is very knowledgeable & will go over things with you many times until they make sense. We know with Megan around, we are getting the best of care.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I lost my mom unexpectedly 2 years ago. It has been such a struggle to go through the process of fertility treatments without your mom & best friend. So many feelings of loss in our lives the past few years, we would like to experience the joy of having a baby. Dr. Pritts shows so much compassion to us, when I have been missing that with my mom. She understands the emotions, the struggles, & is there to provide you with the best care. She is very knowledgeable since she went through this as well. I trust her completely with her care & the options she gives us to move forward. We are currently in our third IUI & will start IVF at the end of the month if we are unsuccessful. She looks at me with such caring in her eyes & tells me she will get me pregnant. I truly believe her. There are so many times I feel overwhelmed with everything but she makes sure we understand every step of the process/procedure. She will take the time to go through every single question I have. She is not afraid to let me know my clock is ticking with such a low AMH. She will treat me with a low AMH even though other RE's would turn me away. Her funny banter with my husband also lightens the mood. I could not have found a better RE. We absolutely love Dr. Pritts & trust her fully with our care. We know she will get us pregnant.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
In Wisconsin, we have no insurance coverage. Nothing mandating coverage & my employer has insurance with no coverage for fertility treatments. No matter if you have some coverage or no coverage, go see Dr. Pritts. She makes everything worth every penny you spend. Her knowledge & expertise is priceless.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My third IUI cycle I was put on Letrozole for 10 days (12.5 dosage). This provided my best results for follicles. I had 4 fully grown follicles at 21, 19, 19, 17. My best reaction to date. I only took 9 days of it since I peaked on the 9th & had the IUI on the 10th day. I also take DHEA, CoQ10, PreNatal, Omegas & Vitamin D. We are hopefully but we are just looking into our protocol for IVF if we move in that direction in 10 days.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Each of my IUI cycles (I've done 3) have been anywhere from $800-$1000 per IUI. That includes the cost of IUI, ultrasound, medication, vitamins & sperm analysis. We are currently pricing IVF cycles. It will cost us $14,900 to do one retrieval & up to 2 transfers. Genetic testing (PGS) will cost us around $5,000 additional. Medications will be 5k-6k. We are going to be financing IVF costs, bc we have to pay completely out of pocket.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts always takes the time to answer all the questions we have. She's honest and takes into consideration your feelings when presenting info that may not be favorable. She gives out her cell number - only doctor I've ever met that cares enough to do that.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Everyone I've worked with has been great and compassionate.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts puts her patients first - she's a very caring, patient focused doctor. She is patient, understanding and compassionate. She works with you in order to find a plan that works best for you, definitely not a canned treatment, which is amazing. She gives great hugs and is such a sweet doctor.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Don't hesitate to at least meet her. You won't regret it. It can be scary taking the first step to pursue fertility treatment, but Dr. Pritts helps to make it fun and bearable.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The successful IUI I did with Dr. Pritts involved a hybrid cycle - 12.5 mg of femera on days 3-7 followed by three days of follistim injections (125 iu each day). Ultrasound on cycle day 11 then trigger of ovidrel, then one insemination at the office with fresh sperm.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Costs were across the board as I didn't have coverage, than did, than maxed out so didn't again. I used Costco for meds as they were more affordable. The clinic also recommended affordable, reputable pharmacies.

The clinic setting [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] is modern, welcoming, and comfortable. You don’t feel overwhelmed when entering at all! I don’t have a bad thing to say about the clinic as a whole. I would warn that even though their prices are pretty competitive, it’s still an expensive process....The new patient consultation was $250, lab work was $125, and the semen analysis was $150. Ultrasounds are $250 and the Ovidrel injection I needed was $170.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The clinic setting is modern, welcoming, and comfortable. You don’t feel overwhelmed when entering at all! I don’t have a bad thing to say about the clinic as a whole. I would warn that even though their prices are pretty competitive, it’s still an expensive process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Extremely caring and comfortable environment. The care you receive is personable and they treat you like family. It’s not a rushed process and all questions and options are explained.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
My experience with the nursing staff was always good. They always provided great service and answers all and any questions.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr Pritts always made me feel comfortable and explained my personal situation, my options, and tried to help me and offer ideas for my financial struggle. She is extremely passionate and it shows in the care she provides.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Expect great things! Your about to walk into a comfortable environment, get a lot of information, and a plan for your treatment. It’ll feel like a lot, but it’s so worth it.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The only treatment I had received and could afford at the time was a high dose of Letrozole, followed by a monthly ultrasound, followed by an injection of Ovidrel. I tried this 3 times in 2018 and 1 time in 2019 but in between and recently have ran into some unexpected financial situations. My treatment was unsuccessful but I think if I had the opportunity to try some further advanced methods, my luck would turn around.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The new patient consultation was $250, lab work was $125, and the semen analysis was $150. Ultrasounds are $250 and the Ovidrel injection I needed was $170. The Letrozole veried in price depending on discount programs they could apply. On a good day it was $20 for 50 pills and on a bad day $100 for 50 pills. The medication was a trap shoot because it’s not always an easy medication to find in the pharmacies in my area.

This clinic [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] honestly my first impression was of a spa. He did not have a clinic atmosphere or dr office at all. Makes it much more relaxing to be there. They play calming spa music which really helped me when I had to be there an hour ahead of time allow time for the sperm to unthaw.... My first ultrasound Dr. Pritts didnt even charge me.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
When we first went to see Dr. Pritts it was a Friday afternoon and we were just there for a consultation (or so we thought). She wanted to see where I was in my cycle and did and examine. Well that turned into do you want to start meds now for this cycle to try IUI. I think my husband and I were so shocked we just didn't know what to say. So we said sure give us the prescription we will go get our meds so we have them in case we decide to start when we got home. (2 hour drive home). I had so many questions but Dr. Pritts let me call her through out the evening to answer them. That's amazing service and someone who understands the importance of timing.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Everyone was great to work with. I did have one instance where when i called in the nurse said to me so you are so many days pregnant and I said no... I was upset but after I thought about it they would have never said that on purpose and we are all human and make mistakes. I still love all the staff even with this happening.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Sincere, genuine, understanding, she truly understands what you go through and the ups and downs due to personally going through it herself. I personally was in her office hearing bad news and completely lost it and she is just very sincere when she says I know its hard.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She is going to really listen to what you want to do especially when it comes to finances. You are in charge of your treatment options there is no pressure to do certain treatment.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
When we first came to her we wanted to try to increase my husbands sperm count and we were prescribed go clomid for my husband to take. He took it for 75 days and we had to be abstinent as well to see if his count was better. The reason is it takes that long after ejaculation to fully mature. We went back in and his count wasn't any better. Then she told us out options were IUI or IVF and that we could try IUI with my husband sperm but the likely hood of it working was slim to none. My husband and I had to come to terms with thinking about using a donor sperm. Once we did she walked us through the entire process and helped us choose the donor sperm company we went through. I had to take letrizole starting day 3 through 7 went in for my day 11 ultrasound and went back when I ovulated for my first IUI transfer which didn't end up working. I went back a few times for ultrasound and my eggs just weren't the size they should have been which was hard so we stopped.

From the moment you enter WFI you're greeted personally by first name and a genuine smile. I have a sense of calm when I'm at the clinic which seems odd to say about being at the doctor's office.... The nurses are wonderful!! They get to know you as a person, not just a patient, always happy and smiling, you can tell the staff is truly happy with their jobs and what they get to do at WFI and it's comforting to see. They are so knowledgeable and when something isn't known they get an answer right away vs playing it off like they know it themselves.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Beautiful! It does. It feel like a clinic. Dr. Pritts wanted it to feel more spa like and cozy vs a cold, scary, hospital type setting. It truly makes s difference at putting you at ease as soon as you walk in the door.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
From the moment you enter WFI you're greeted personally by first name and a genuine smile. I have a sense of calm when I'm at the clinic which seems odd to say about being at the doctor's office. Privacy is always kept and I have never felt rushed in the time I've been a patient. There are time where I've been in and out by choice and times where I've literally had a list of questions I wanted answered, they pull up a chair and are eye level with you and treat it like a normal conversation, always leaving time for further questions. Never have I ever felt like a number or just another patient.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are wonderful!! They get to know you as a person, not just a patient, always happy and smiling, you can tell the staff is truly happy with their jobs and what they get to do at WFI and it's comforting to see. They are so knowledgeable and when something isn't known they get an answer right away vs playing it off like they know it themselves. Ive always felt led in the right direction and have never been confused about what I should be doing next. Especially when I stated the IVF cycle it felt overwhelming but after they picked it apart for me and literally went through each step I honestly felt calm about it! They did my injection training, taught me how to message them online if I ever needed help or had questions, gave me direct lines of emergencies happened. Each visit things were explained and sometimes I needed things re-explained or shown to me multiple times and they never made me feel dumb for asking or rushed. It's as if I was there only patient. The nursing staff are rockstars at WFI!
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is the kindest, most caring Dr. I have ever encountered in my life. I feel blessed to have her as my Dr and place my complete trust and faith in what she has planned for me under her care. You never feel like a number or just another patient, she sits with you and will answer a million and one questions gladly. She was there for me when I had my ectopic pregnancy and called me on her personal line on her time off to check in on me when I was recovering, which speaks volume of not only a Dr but to the type of human being she is deep down to her core. She has a passion for what she does and it shows, she truly is a blessing to her patients. As much as I cannot wait to get pregnant (and I know Dr. Pritts will get us there!) it will also mean being released back to my OB which will truly be so bittersweet! I wish she could be my Dr. throughout the whole process as she just makes you feel so safe and comfortable!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Don't hesitate! If you're having reproductive issues, put your faith and trust in the best, which is Dr. Pritts! I drive a total of 3 hours each visit to be her patient and I wouldn't have it any other way. She is worth it, I wouldn't put the importance of my future family in anyone else's hands!
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did a total of 5 IUI's. First couple were with use of letrozole (upped dose all the way to 12.5mg) 1st resulted in ectopic pregnancy. 2nd resulted in chemical. Last 3 were negative. After the first couple with just letrozole we added in use of trigger shot. Then eventually did letrozole+gonal f+trigger with IUI. We are now in the process of our first IVF cycle-we used gonal f, low dose novarel for stimulation and lupron and high dose novarel for trigger. I responded very well and had a total of 27 eggs retrieved with 25 being mature. 9 ended up making it to expanded blastocyst stage all being high grades. We have yet to do a transfer yet.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
I can't recall exactly how much ultrasound and iui costed, but together I believe it was @400 without insurance which was much cheaper than my OB had done just an IUI for without the ultrasound monitoring! For my IVF cycle there are different plans so it can range from $10,000-30,000 depending on which you choose. We chose a package where we will receive the retrieval and 2 transfers (if first fails) total was $14,995. Meds I purchased through mandells pharmacy separate from the clinic. The medication protocol Dr. Pritts had me on was substantially less than what financing let us know to expect. We were told to expect about $5,000-$10,000 for meds. Our total med cost was about $3,500 due to a different med protocol Dr. Pritts had been implementing.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr. Pritts definitely thoroughly went over risks/benefits of multiple vs single transfer and what she would recommend in our specific case. I felt very informed and will be confident with our choice when we are able to transfer.

Even if I came early, they were ready for me and have me in and out without a problem but still took their time to make sure I didn't feel like they needed to be on to the next.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
From our very first consult, she was very thorough and honest. She explained any risks since I was an interesting case. She took her time with me to answer questions and get to fully understand what we wanted. Since there were concerns about my ovaries after my hysterectomy, she did an ultrasound the day of the consult. She immediately got excited and said, "Let's make you two a baby!" Feeling her excitement, I couldn't help but know I had found the perfect person to help us do just that. She was there anytime I needed her, even at 1am for a surgery. She would answer every call and text to her cell. Her excitement to help us make a baby was extremely encouraging and uplifting. I always felt like her only patient. Her care and compassion is unlike any doctor I've ever had.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
WFI is more affordable than the other clinic available in the area. I've also had multiple friends transfer from the other clinic due to the poor bedside manner and feeling as if treated like just another number. The staff at WFI are also quick to respond and seem to genuinely care about each patient. Both Dr. Pritts and Dr. Collins are warm and welcoming and have contagious optimism and willingness to find the answers for those struggling with infertility.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Great bedside manner, willing to discuss all avenues at length and answer any and all questions. Never felt like I was "wasting" her time with all of my questions.

Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Started treatment conservatively with low dose medicated cycles. Started with non-invasive diagnostics to determine ovarian reserve, egg quality, thyroid levels, semen analysis, etc. After unsuccessful IUI treaments, performed more invasive diagnostic testing such as HSG. Moved onto IVF cycles with Egg Retrieval, Embryo Freezing and Transfer cycles. Following chemical pregnancy, additional testing was order for hysteroscopy/laproscopy and immunological testing.

Dr. Pritts was open to either eSET or multiple embryo transfer depending on our wishes. For our first round we chose eSET, as we were considered ideal candidates with unexplained fertility and no known issues. For our next cycle we will be transferring multiple (2).

How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Elizabeth Pritts has been absolutely wonderful through the entire process. She genuinely cares for her patients. She loves meeting the children she helped create and is invested in their journey. I was only disappointed in finding that she doesn’t perform the IUI procedure all the time. She performed IUI and ultrasound about 30-50% of the time.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She is wonderfully invested in your entire process and journey. Be ready for an emotional rollercoaster.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Day 3 of cycle, I started Letrozole. After a week I had an ultrasound to see if I had any eggs and how large they were, if any. I then had to take letrozole in a higher dosage, for another 5-7 days with a follow-up ultrasound to see if the eggs grew to a usable size. I then monitored my ovulation in case I naturally ovulated before the IUI and triggered ovulation was scheduled. I then triggered ovulation with 2 ovidrel shots and had the procedure 1-2 days later, depending on the number of eggs and size. I then took a pregnancy test 14-17 days, post IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Meds $350 Each ultrasound/every visit $250 IUI $350 Washing of donated sperm $150 ~$2500-$3000 each time with cost of donor sperm and shipping. $50/ month donor sperm storage fee

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
There was never a time we felt like a number. Dr. Pritts and her entire staff were absolutely amazing! After the first little bit, we'd just walk in the door and they wouldn't need to ask our name to check in. We took our daughter back to see them and they all still remembered us then.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts had come highly recommended by a co-worker as well as my husband's company that provided us with a service to check into all of the local fertility doctors within 100 miles of us. Dr. Pritts was the only one they actually suggested to us based on their findings and research. She was always very personable and honest with our plan and next steps. We've suggested her to others already and will continue to do so. My husband and I are forever grateful and wouldn't have our daughter without her!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Don't be afraid to ask questions!
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We started out with IUI since we were young and had no medical reason as to why we hadn't been able to conceive. Our 1st went as planned but didn't result in a pregnancy, the 2nd and 3rd I had actually ovulated early so they didn't have a chance to be successful. After the 3rd attempt, Dr. Pritts was very open and told us that she thought our best bet would be to move to IVF. Based on the timing we had decided to take a little time off and enjoy the Holidays. We proceeded with IVF early in 2018 and welcomed our daughter in December 2018.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
I don't recall exactly but I feel like the costs were at or below the average we were seeing in our research.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr. Pritts did give us the option to transfer 1 or 2 embryos. She had given us the risks of transferring 2 and the percentages that she thought we had of ending with a live birth based on transferring 1 or 2. We decided to move forward with 2.

I got the prime plan [at WI Fertility Institute- Middleton]. I had up to 2 tries with this plan. If the pregnancy did not take the first time, or resulted in a miscarriage by 12 weeks, I would get another chance without having to pay for another transfer. Everything was covered with this plan besides medication, embryo storage, consultation, injection class, and shg scan. 14,900- prime plan 400- storage fee 865- SHG test 250- consultation 48.46- injection class

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
It is a very inviting, comfortable place. They are all nice and welcoming there. Everyone treats you like you have been going there forever. They are also very gental when it comes to blood draws and show compassion for your situation.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I love Dr Pritts, she has a very happy positive vibe about her when she sees you. I felt like I was the only person she saw because she remembered everything from each appointment.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Some of them were great and some were not so much. NOT Dr Pritts fault, but in the beginning of going there I and sent my files from my hospital where I live to the clinic there. They had "gotten, miss placed" for almost a month. The were found in a drawer mixed with other papers. There were a couple other instances that irritated me as well, but I honestly dont rememeber them. But for the most part they were very nice and acceptional.
What specific things went wrong at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She is a very compassionate person. She takes great care in her patients. I am in contact with a few other women who went to her and I also have a friend who is going to her. We all love her. She would always answer my questions and was impressed with the knowledge I had and all the research I had done, so i understood more than most patients she had. Shes just the best and I cant thank her enough for helping my dream cone true!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Just be yourself and ask all the questions you have. She will make you feel welcome.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I was on very low doses of meds. I have an egg reserve of a teenager so she didnt want to over produce eggs, to give less chance of getting OHSS. Quality not quantity. She would tweak the amount if needed, I did have to take a little extra for a day just to give a boost. She watched me very closely. At one point I had to go in for an ultrasound 3 days in a row. I trusted her and what she wanted me to take. If I had a question or concern of something I asked and got answered. I do not fully rememeber the abounds of everything without looking at my chart, but I could get my day by day if needed.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Everything flower very smoothly with timing. My work also accommodated to my needs. So any time I got scheduled to be seen was fine. The appointments went very smooth.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
I got the prime plan. I had up to 2 tries with this plan.

Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr Pritts will not put in more than 2 embryos at a time. She will usually suggest only one. Unless you do not do testing on them, then she will allow 2. We did 2 non tested and got one strong little fighter boy out of it.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
We came to Dr. Pritts devastated, terrified and desperate. We had been handed a diagnosis of severe MFI at the clinic across town and were treated as numbers and sent on our way. It was the darkest time of our lives. Thankfully, we found Dr. Pritts through a recommendation and she and her staff are a God send. She gets it. Her and her husband/partner Dr. Olive did IVF and she ultimately miscarried. It’s so helpful to talk with someone that relates and acknowledges the emotional side of infertility and treatment. She gave us her cell # and I have had to use it more than once in some of the scariest moments of my life. Although we don’t yet have our happy ending, we know that she is with us on our journey and truly cares.

  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is intelligent, capable, compassionate, warm and frank. We are so grateful for her honesty and realistic view of infertility treatment. From our consult to IVF, through our transfers, miscarriages, recurrent miscarriage testing and now embryo adoption, she has been available and supportive. We know the clinic is extremely busy because we see all the patients going in and out, but she really makes us feel as if we are her number one priority. I know her other patients feels that way as well. We have referred two friends to WFI, both of which are now pregnant. I also want to say that she could have chosen to reject us as patients after our miscarriage to increase her success rates, but that’s not they run the clinic. Dr. Pritts has made us feel validated and supported through every step of our difficult journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Stay optimistic.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
One specific is that she does an Ovidrel wash in the uterus now prior to transfer. She recommends a burger and fries and shipping for a new purse after transfer, which I was more than happy to do!

Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
We trusted her to make the call. Ultimately, for us she was comfortable with either one or two and we’ve done both. She explained that the risk from two separate pregnancies was statistically higher than the risk of one twin pregnancy, but twin pregnancies due carry an increased risk over one Singleton.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts has shown genuine care and compassion for me. She goes above and beyond to communicate with me and ask me how I am doing. While she was performing a laparoscopy to remove endometriosis, she was adamently protective of my body while I was unconscious and male Doctors were present in the operating room. She is an encourager and has hope for me and my husband while also sympathizing and showing concern when we don't get the results we are hoping for.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses are all compassionate, very knowledgeable and highly skilled at what they do.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She has taken the time to get to know who I am and treats me with a lot of compassion and respect. I feel like she wants success for my husband and I just as much as we do. When I wanted to research my fertility medication, an article written by Dr. Pritts came up as one of the top results -- she is literally one of the top experts in her field! I have multiple friends who have also been treated by Dr. Pritts who have successfully had children and recommend her to everyone.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She is wonderful! You will really like her! Don't be afraid to reach out and communicate with her if you have any needs or questions, she really wants to help. She has also gone through her own experience with infertility and has a personal passion for helping people.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I take Letrozole days 3-7 of my cycle with an ultrasound on day 11 to check on follicle growth. Letrozole has proven to give me a larger amount of potential follicles that are mature enough for possible implantation. IUI or timed intercourse has been suggested every month so far after meeting with Dr. Pritts for just over a year. I had an HSG after a few appointments because Dr. Pritts wanted to make sure a blocked tube was not preventing pregnancy. The results showed that my tubes were not blocked. Laparoscopy surgery was recommended to look for endometriosis because of my family history and persisting symptoms. It was found that I have stage 4 endometriosis. Dr. Pritt's removed all signs of it, but clarified that it has the potential to come back someday. I am currently continuing Letrozole with either timed intercourse or IUI for the time being. My husband and I have not determined any alternative courses of action at this time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
First appointment included free initial ultrasound. $250 for each additional ultrasond, $350 for each IUI. This clinic referred me to the Costco pharmacy where my letrozole is usually free with our insurance, or only $10 without insurance.

They are saying the same thing over and over all day every day so it’s second nature to them. Sometimes you need to just stop them and ask for clarification.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Her and her husband have gone through all of this themselves. She was very open to sharing their journey and sympathize with us. She would even take my calls after hours if I had a time sensitive question, or just needed to know options and couldn’t stop thinking. She is truly an amazing person and I am blessed to have found her.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
All of them remembered us and our journey we were on.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is an angel in our journey. She has shown so much compassion to us. I remember a time one of the ultrasounds didn’t show the results we wanted or needed. I just broke down. She was very real and just said, it’s not fair, I’m not going to pretend that it’s all ok. I have been on this same table hundreds of times. It’s never easy and it sucks. She didn’t sugar coat anything, but would say the right things. One thing she does is talk very fast and explain things quick. I learned early on to just stop her and have her explain slower or 2-3 times until I understood. After we returned for a consult after my ectopic, she just hugged me for over a minute and said he whole office was crushed when they heard the news. I can’t say enough positive about her!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be honest and open and trust her
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My husband had a “lower” sperm count to start. It was never low enough that they determined the cause of infertility, but lower than hey would like. We started with chlomid for him to raise count, and letrazole for me. I took 5 pills(not sure dosage) a day days 5-9 I believe for IUI. After 2 rounds not working she changed it to days 3-7 or 9? I got pregnant on round 3 IUI. It resulted in an ectopic that ruptured. I lost my Fallopian tube due to that. She said we could try IUI again since it did work, or we could look at IVF. We decided to try IUI a little longer. 3 rounds of letrazole and negative results. She then suggested a hybrid cycle. So I did the letrazole with gonalF injections to get more eggs on my side with a tube. Still resulted in a negative. Every round of IUI I would have 3-4 follicles. So the medication was working. She then suggested looking into IVF since statistics drop after 4 failed IUI’s. We decided to move forward. She said we should have no problem getting the eggs needed since I responded so well to medication. Well they retrieved 23 eggs, 17 or 18 were fertilized and only 3 made it to day 6. We decided ahead of time we wanted to do the genetic testing. Thank god we did. None of our embryo’s were normal. There was no indication that I should have poor egg quality. I was 33 turning 34 when we started IVF. My eggs should have been ok still. She was as shocked as we were.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
A consultation was $150 I believe initially, semen analysis was $250, IUI was I think $400-$500 without semen prep, ultrasound was $250, blood work $100, IVF cycle $14,000 without medication.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
She was more than ok with transferring 2 before genetic testing. She said after genetic testing she would do 2, but only if I was young enough and healthy. She wouldn’t do more than 2 for me either way. She knew all the statistics for twins and triplets and educated us on the risks with both and was very clear that triplets are not what they ever try for.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She is a very caring person. Even if I wasn't seeing her that day fit an appointment she would stop by & say hi. She shared her own fertility struggles. She knows what it's like to be on the other side. All of the emotions that go with the process. Her husband has been sick & going through cancer treatments yet she was always upbeat & positive at every appointment. She focuses on each patient & interacts with them.

To trust Dr. Pritts & her advice. But also ask questons.

After 7 failed IUI cycles, Dr Pritts evaulated by overall health. She did a hystoscopy to verify uterus looked good to proceed with IVF. She did a combination of medications & kept evaulating through the process if changes needed to be made. Rhe first fet did not work. On the 2nd fet she reevaluated medicationsto help thicken my lining in hopes of the embryos sticking.

Office visits were about $75. Ultrasounds were $150 to $200.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts was always present during each time we met. She answered our questions thoroughly and gave us time to digest all of the information we were given. She did not make us feel like we were asking stupid questions and responded with true sincerity.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Heidi)
The nursing staff has been exceptional. Heidi has been very compassionate and caring throughout the entire process. She responds to all questions via patient portal in a timely manner and is also available to chat via phone. I cannot say enough about the nursing staff at Wisconsin Fertility Institute! They are absolutely wonderful
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
When my husband and I first met with Dr. Pritts she was very welcoming and eager to help us with trying to conceive. She took time to explain all of our options and was available after our visit to answer other questions that came up. During this process I had to have a hysteroscopy to have a polyp removed. I developed complications over the weekend and called Dr. Pritts immediately. She responded to my phone call right away, and with no hesitation, she met me at the clinic to assess the situation. I was so scared during the time. Dr. Pritts was empathetic and helped my husband and I feel safe. I was so honored to have a doctor who cared so much during such a scary time during this process. Lastly, I would like to say that even though my husband and I did not have a successful first round of IVF we have faith in Dr. Pritts to do everything she can to try to help make the second round more successful. She has been available during this entire process and has always been ready to answer our questions and concerns (even at 7:00 pm on a Friday night). I would recommend anyone to Dr. Pritts, I believe that she truly does make miracles happen and my husband and I will be proof of that.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
One piece of advice that I would like to give is to never feel afraid to ask questions. It is your body and future and you have every right to fully understand this whole process. Dr. Pritts will not make you feel intelligible and will spend as much time with you as you need to make you feel comfortable.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
My husband and I did IVF with ICSI. I am not sure what protocol I was on, but will walk you through my process. I was on birth control for approximately 2 weeks prior to starting stimulation. I went in for my first ultrasound 2 days after I started my period and started stimulation that evening. I was on Gonal F and Menopur. I started cetrotide on day 8 and continued to stim for 13 days total. I Triggered on day 14, egg retrieval on day 16. Egg retrieval went well and I was feeling very optimistic. 22 eggs were retrieved, 16 fertilized with ICSI. I received a call from Dr. Pritts or the nurse on days 1,2,3,5, and 6 to updates us on the quality of the embryos. On day 1 we had 14 embryos, day 2 we had 14 embryos, day 3 we had 12 embryos, day 5 we had 7 embryos, and on day 6 only 3 made it to blastocytes. We sent all three in for PGS testing and all came back with genetic abnormalities.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Approximately $18,000 with PGS testing. This did not include medications.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
He was amazing. He sat down with us and talked about everything in a way we understood. He works as a team with his patients and his spouse, Dr. Pritts.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They are definitely a team with the providers. Very organized and compassionate.
How was your experience with David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Olive and Dr. Pritts are great people who truly want to help. They are compassionate and very knowledgeable. You can speak with them just like any other person. The first meeting, you sit down for an hour to discuss everything you have tried or not tried, your fears, and the options. I found this meeting to be very worthwhile and money well spent. Dr. Olive and Dr. Pritts stay up to date with all the latest fertility knowledge. There was no question they could not answer. They can’t promise results but their knowledge and expertise are top notch! I had questions after hours with one round of IVF and they were more than happy to take my call. One of them is always available for patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Do it! Don’t waste your time working with another general OB/GYN. Go to someone who knows exactly what they are doing!
Describe the protocols David Olive used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The egg retrieval treatment was all planned out with medications coming by mail. The dosage varied based on lab results. The specifics of why medications were used was explained well. The egg retrieval went great! During the cycle, I had ultrasounds with this provider to make sure things were ideal.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Typical cost of IVF. They do offer package rates for IVF and additional testing that is optional. This is all explained but the staff and you are given a packet to review.
Describe David Olive's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
They prefer to do 2 or less embryos due to potential complications.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
From the very first meeting all of the staff and doctors were very personable and knew everything about my case. They had done their homework before meeting with me. They listened intently to everything I said and validated my concerns and my hopes for success. I was never given false hope and were open and upfront with any and all information.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Jen)
Every single person I had contact with at WFI was wonderful. Very knowledgeable, compassionate and organized.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is an absolutely wonderful doctor. She never rushed through any appointments, always seemed glad to see us and explained everything that in a way that was easy to understand. Even though fertility treatments are stressful I never felt stressed while with Dr. Pritts. She always made me feel at ease and comfortable.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Never hesitate to ask questions. Even if Dr. Pritts has explained something before, if you still don’t understand, ask. She will keep explaining until you 100% understand what is going to happen.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We did injectables to help produce as many mature eggs as possible. With limited number of viable sperm we wanted to have many eggs to try to inseminate to produce a viable embryo. Then we froze all remaining embryos as I ended up being hyper-stimulated. When we did the transfer we had to do 12 weeks of progesterone to assist the pregnancy. Which ended up being successful

Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr. Pritts understood our situation (limited funds, advanced maternal age, etc) that we did not want to transfer only 1 embryo. We wanted to do 2 at a time because it was important for us to have success as well as have no remaining embryos (we had 4 viable) after all transfers were done. She expressed the possibilities of having multiples and the risks and together we decided that 2 embryos was the right amount per transfer for us.

  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I love Dr Pritts. She is kind, compassionate and caring with each and every patient. I have nothing but WONDERFUL things to say about her. My only let down would be that I still am not pregnant. From the very first visit, she went through our medical history and explained some things that we could try and do to help with the process and was very optimistic that we would be able to have a baby.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be ready to fall in love with Dr. Pritts but also, she will be very straight forward with you, in a loving and caring way though.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We started out doing a total of 6 IUIs since I have had 1 child naturally. None of them resulted in a positive pregnancy test. I did monthly pills and a trigger shot 2 days before each IUI. We then sold our house and moved on with IVF. I had a whole lot of injectable medicine and pills that I would take for a month leading up to the egg retrieval. I went in for the egg retrieval and they got 18 eggs that they ICSI. 5 made it to day 5 and 2 made it to day 6 and they freeze them all and we schedule the transfer the following month. We transferred 2 eggs the following month with a negative test. We waited a month and then transferred 2 more eggs and that also resulted in a negative test.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
We have spent about $28,000 over the course of the lifetime of fertility treatments. We have no health insurance coverage either in the state of WI with our employers. We ended up selling our house to pay for IVF. We have 3 embryos still in the freezer with Dr Pritts and have to keep paying $400.00 per year to keep them there but we can't afford to do another transfer yet and she wants to do an ERA test on me before another transfer happens so, for us to do another transfer, it will cost us another $10,000 total plus any medication. My age is a HUGE factor also so time is of the essence.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr Pritts said that they don't transfer more than 2 embryos at a time. I have always wanted twins so we opted to transfer 2 each time.

The clinic [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] has its own building, so if someone is embarrassed to be driving to a fertility clinic for the first time it’s a pretty private location. It’s clean, updated and organized. Everything is a short distance away. The lab area is big enough for a few patients and the chairs are comfortable. The individual rooms for exams give off a nice, natural aroma. I would like to see the fertility clinic do more for patients to help the cost of the treatments.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
I am SO thankful that WFI offers Mini-IVF (low stim IVF). It is a cheaper IVF options, fewer drugs so less taxing on the body, and there is a lower risk of creating more embryos than you need. Not many clinics offer Mini IVF and I'm SO, SO thankful that they do. Every person we met at WFI was kind and compassionate, from the front desk staff, to the financial coordinator, to the nurses and even the embryologist. I felt so welcomed and cared for by every member of the team. The clinic is very strait forward about their pricing, and we could easily see how the cost was broken down for each treatment cycle. The financial coordinator explained things well, and we felt the prices were fair compared to the other clinic in the area.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts took the time to get to know us as a couple, and understand how we wanted to proceed with treatment. We had very specific desires about how many embryos were created, and how they were managed and she was very respectful of our desires. When our first cycle had to be canceled, She was just as frustrated as we were and cried with us. Every time I saw her, she knew me by name and treated me as if I was the only patient she was seeing that day (which obviously wasn't the case). All of the staff at WFI are compassionate and caring.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Every nurse I worked with was very personable and seems to really enjoy their work. They knew me by name and were definitely rooting for us. Their calm personalities really made the clinic feel warm and safe.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts took the time to get to know us as a couple. From our first consultation with her (after we had spent a frustrating year at another clinic) she listened to our concerns and desires, and was very honest about what the next steps were. We were so thankful that she offers a low-stim IVF (Mini- IVF) option, or we may never have proceeded with IVF. She was honest about our chances, and yet very hopeful for us, when we were feeling very hopeless. Our first round of IVF failed before the egg retrieval because I ovulated early; it was devastating for us. Dr. Pritts immediately changed my medication protocol and said she was going to chance all future mini-ivf protocols so that the same thing wouldn't happen again to another patient. I appreciated that she tailored my medication protocol to me. During our 2nd IVF attempt, Dr. Pritts was just as excited as we were with the number of eggs retrieved (many more than expected). Each day while we waited to hear our embryo report, Dr. Pritts called us personally to let us know how they were doing. It was very reassuring to talk with her instead of a nurse. In fact, any time I had a question during our cycle, Dr. Pritts was always the one to call back to discuss; she is exceptionally available for her patients. Our first embryo transfer was successful and we now have a beautiful daughter thanks to Dr. Pritts' excellent care. Dr. Pritts is a very passionate and empathetic doctor, who cares immensely about the work she does. She went through infertility herself, so she knows what it feels like to be in that position. We are so thankful for her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts can be bluntly honest, but she does so with the most respect and empathy. It can be hard to hear the truth when faced with infertility, but I appreciated that she didn't give us false hope. She may seem like she is in a hurry at times, but she's just excited to move forward with you; if you ask her to slow down, repeat herself, or explain things differently, she is happy to do so; she really does want to meet people where they are at.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I had 2 Mini-IVF cycles performed; also called low stim IVF. The goal was to collect 5-8 eggs. The first cycle I was stimmed with high dose letrozole and low dose Gonal F, I Had my follicles monitored via ultrasound and a trigger shot with HCG. I had 5 large follicles as hoped but unfortunately, I ovulated early and no eggs could be retrieved at the egg retrieval. My second cycle, I took birth control pills for a few days to delay my cycle in order to time the treatment with travel I had to do (I was so thankful I was given this option). I was stimmed with high dose letrozole and low dose Gonal F, and I was also on cetrotide to prevent ovulation from occurring prematurely. I had 5-7 nice size follicles at my last ultrasound before my hcg trigger, but she ended up retrieving 13 eggs (11 mature!) which is more than expected! Dr. Pritts had recommended we use ICSI to fertilize our eggs due to male factor infertility (poor sperm quality, high sperm DNA fragmentation). We choose to ICSI only 5 eggs (we were able to freeze the other 6), and ended up with 3 blastocysts.We elected to transfer one embryo on day 5, and froze the other two on day 6. Our first transfer was successful and led to our beautiful, healthy daughter.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Our full mini-IVF cycle with ICSI cost about $6500 without meds (ordered meds from europe, and those cost about $900). We spent more than this with testing, initial consultation and our failed IVF cycle. I have some prices from our estimate sheet and billing on specific procedures. monitoring clinic visits $75 monitoring ultrasound $175 trial embryo transfer $250 egg retrieval for 5 eggs or less (includes supplies, and oocyte id by embryologist) - $2575. For &gt;5 eggs - $3300 sperm prep $150 ICSI $600 (5 eggs or less), &gt;5 eggs $1000 Embryo culture $400-1000 depending on days and number embryology services 275-500 embryo transfer including prep and ultrasound $1045 Anesthesia $400 (I didn't have) embryo freezing $200 each Embryo storage $400 per year most blood tests were $100
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Our doctor gave use the choice to transfer 1 or 2 embryos in our case. She never transfers more than 3 embryos at once. She was very open with us and gave us the pros and cons of transfering 1 verses 2. We are VERY happy we elected to transfer only 1.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts took the time to get to know us, and we never felt like we were being rushed through an appointment. She answered all of our questions thoroughly, and made sure we were good with our plan before leaving. When we had the miscarriage, she was very sensitive, and showed us the back way out so we didn't have to see more people.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They all remembered us each visit, and were very competent.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I loved Dr. Pritts. She made an effort to make sure we saw her as much as possible, instead of just handing us off to just the nurses. Even when she couldn't see us for one appointment, she reviewed all the details and called if she saw something we needed to know.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Morning appointments are the best, in my opinion. She was almost always available for morning appointments.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We went through 3 successive femara + Ovidrel cycles. The first started at 5mg femara days 3-7, then when the follicles weren't fully developed I did another course of 7.5 femara, then triggered, with timed intercourse. That pregnancy ended with a miscarriage. The second cycle was a course of 7.5 femara days 3-7, trigger with timed intercourse, then estrogen for 5 days. This one failed. The third cycle was 10mg femara days 3-7, then when I didn't respond quite enough (had bronchitis, so that messed with it), I did another course of 10mg, then trigger with timed intercourse, and estrogen for 5 days. Once we got a positive, I was started on Prednisone, progesterone, and baby aspirin to prevent another miscarriage. It worked! Just delivered our baby 2 weeks ago!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Our insurance paid for some of our treatment. Each ultrasound we paid $75. The initial appointment was something like $250-300, but she did a baseline ultrasound for free during that. We used Costco for the meds, because that was the cheapest option.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be ready to hear the honest truth, she will not hold back.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We all day down together (me, my husband and her) and discussed what we have been going through, my age and results of tests and decided to move forward with IUIs. Since I have unexplained infertility and due to the costs of IVF this was the best course of action. After the first two failed we moved from pills to injections. We tried three more times with all three failing.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
There was a cost to have an initial meeting and then every ultrasound and IUI insemination cost money. Sometimes I would need more than one ultrasound if my eggs were not big enough which would rack up the costs for that process. After speaking with other friends and doing research I felt the prices were fair.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
We felt as if we were being taken through the motions. We didn't get much time with the doctor herself. There didn't seem to be much individualized thought going in to our treatment plan.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Heidi)
Heidi and the rest of the nursing staff were fantastic
What specific things went wrong at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
We felt that Dr Pritts made assumptions regarding our situation rather than doing the proper diagnostics to truly understand our infertility. We felt rushed into IVF while feeling she didn't have enough information. We did not feel she was truthful regarding the explanation of our failed cycle. She got very defensive and unprofessional when we asked questions regarding our failed cycle.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Demand information. Ask questions. Do your own research. And play a strong role in your own care.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We started out with 3 timed intercourse cycles with letrazole and Ovidrel. I responded well with at least 3 follicles every time. I did have some fluid surrounding the ovaries and possibly in my one remaining tube. We then moved on to IVF as we were told our issue was most likely due to a blocked tube. Even though she had no strong evidence to support that assumption. Our IVF protocol was done with Gonal-F and Cetrotide with 1/2 the usual Ovidrel dose as the trigger. No medical explanations were given to us regarding medication or timing choices. She seemed to work off her gut. 18 eggs were retrieved but only 2 fertilized by day 2. By day 3, a total of 6 were fertilized. By day 5, we only had 1 embryo to freeze. I was told these results were due to poor egg quality but could not be given a specific explanation as to how the quality lacked normalcy besides "genetic issue". (Even though we did not have genetic testing done on any of the embryos.) Dr Pritts told me very callously and with much insult to my intelligence, that I should be smart enough to understand that we need to explore other options should we still want to be parents.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The facility is beautiful and serene. Dr. Pritts is very pationate about her work. At my first meeting with her I was a bit put off by her directness and how quickly she moved forward with things. But, looking back, I appreciate these qualities because some of the things she said were a wakeup call for me. I think I was just thrown off because I'd never experienced that before in a doctor. The only weakness in my eyes is that I wish I had more direct contact with Dr. Pritts. There have been times I've contacted the clinic and felt like the information was getting diluted because it was filtering through her staff instead of coming directly from her.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I always feel like she listens to and addresss my concerns and questions. She is always friendly when she greets me. Also, when I had to have surgery with her, she held my hand in the OR until I fell asleep.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses overall are friendly and compassionate, but have different approaches to the day 11 ultrasound and the what happens afterwards. they were also sometimes confused about what the approach was for that month. We always opted for timed intercourse, but they would think we had IUI planned and we had to correct them.
What specific things went wrong at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Scheduled the wrong procedure
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I think Dr. Pritts is great. My only complaint is that she maybe leaves too many of the decisions up to us. There are times I wish she would offer a stronger opinion about next steps rather than leaving all devisions up to us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Ask lots of clarifying questions and push to get her medical opinion if you're ever unsure how to proceed.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
So far I have only done medicated cycles with timed intercourse. 12.5mg of letrozole were used starting day 3 for 10 days. I had a large endometrioma on one ovary for the first 3-4 cycles with only 1-2 follicles produced per cycle. Ultrasound was used day 11 to check for follicles. I also had some cycles where I didn't ovulate on my own so an ovidrel trigger shot was used followed by timed intercourse. Zero pregnancies have resulted. I had laparoscopic surgery to remove endometriosis and have had two more cycles since then. One which produced 3 follicles on the 12.5 mg letrozole where a trigger shot was used and another where 2 follicles were produced and ovulation occurred naturally, both of which used timed intercourse and resulted in zero pregnancies.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
$200 for the initial consultation. $250 for every visit requiring an ultrasound. Additional costs for meds and blood tests, some of which were covered by insurance.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
I liked this clinic enough that even though our insurance switched and was trying to send us to the other clinic in town (unclear why - they offer no infertility coverage) we chose to go back to our original clinic. They knew what worked for us in the past and were willing to let us back in where we left off with our first child. The staff is friendly, efficient, and are great communicators. Even on the weekends when the staff is limited, I have always felt that things always went smoothly for our appointments. I really liked that the doctors at this clinic (a married couple) were very open about their own fertility issues. It made us feel less like we were our own sad island.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is the perfect combination (for me) of no-nonsense information, proactive treatment, and enjoyable bedside manner.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Jen)
For our cycles, my care go-to nurse has been Jen for my time with the clinic in 2014 and again now in 2016/2017. She is WONDERFUL and I couldn't have hoped for a better contact point. She returns phone calls within a day or less and is lovely to speak with at every point.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
After 2 failed "timed" cycles with oral medication and a trigger shot, and 2 failed IUI cycles with oral medication and a trigger shot, she suggested adding a few days of injectable medications before the IUI that resulted in a positive pregnancy test. (Huzzah!) This was magical, obviously. The pregnancy was twins, and at the ultrasound where where we learned this, the heartbeats were measured and we were told based on the number that there was a (insert 90ish percentile) assurance that both fetuses would make it to term. This wasn't the case as I miscarried a twin at 21-22 weeks. So if I could offer any criticism, it would be that point of 90ish more more percentile that everything was going to be peachy. It's a rather small point. We have come back to the clinic to try to conceive a sibling for our child, and Dr. Pritts allowed us jump right back into treatment with the clinic where we left off, which was wonderful. We have not been successful after five cycles, though I don't think I have any criticisms of Dr. Pritts for that. (I have some choice words for my reproductive system, however.)
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Don't assume your'e going to see Dr. Pritts for every appointment, or for every cycle if you're doing repeat cycles of the same drugs and/or procedures. If you have questions for the doctor, make sure you write them down before you go in for an appointment - I would forget and then would later have to call the nurses to relay a question to the doctor for me.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
In our third IUI cycle for our first pregnancy in 2014 (and our 5th cycle overall), she suggested adding in a few days of injectable medication to our regimen that resulted in pregnancy. I became pregnant with twins (though later miscarried one in the second trimester).
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Our IUI cycles were less than those on the website. For example, for each IUI cycle we had only one ultrasound and the IUI procedure itself. We used whatever fertility cycle the clinic currently recommended, so our IUI costs, even with oral medication, injective medication (like follistim) and a trigger shot, were approximately $1,100. Our health insurance covers NO infertility treatment, though we get a small benefit on the medication side.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
We have not had an IVF cycle, so I am unable to answer this question.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I started my fertility treatments at another clinic where I very much felt like a number and it felt terrible. When I switched to Dr Pritts I told her about that experience and she promised to help me understand the process every step of the way and feel comfortable with my treatment. She was always happy to answer questions and even gave me her personal cell number if I thought of other questions after I left (which I only used once but having it meant a lot to me). When we finally got pregnant Dr Pritts and her nurses were so overjoyed for us and they really felt like family. I was sad to leave their care when I graduated to my OB.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was incredible, especially Amy and Jen. There was one nurse that I struggled with because she did the blood draws and was very bad at them. In fact she botched it so badly one time I have a permanent scar. I felt terrible but I told Jen that I just couldn’t have my blood drawn by her again and she was very kind and understanding and offered to do it instead. I didn’t see that nurse again after that so I must not have been the only one to complain. Everyone else on the team was phenomenal.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I truly loved working with Dr Pritts. There were failures and setbacks along the way as is pretty much expected with infertility but I always felt that Dr Pritts was on our side and completely committed to getting us our baby. I trusted her judgement implicitly. I know she tried to balance sharing all potential outcomes to prepare me and not scaring me about things unnecessarily. At times I wish I’d known something beforehand and other times I wished she hadn’t shared worst case scenarios because then I fixated on them. So basically that’s a lose lose situation that I think she handled the best she could and overall I felt that she shared the right amount of info with me. She was compassionate and skilled and I will be forever grateful for her for helping us get our daughter. I have recommended her to multiple friends. The day that I got to bring my baby girl to the clinic to meet Dr Pritts was one I’ll never forget. I said “Look what you made” and she said “No way, you made her, I just helped you do it” and I think that sums up what a kind and humble person she is.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Let her know what you need to feel comfortable and well cared for. I told her from the beginning that I needed to understand what was happening to help me feel more in control. She really kept that in mind throughout my treatment. My friend also went to her and often walked out of the clinic confused about what was happening and I think it was because she didn’t ask a lot of questions. So if you need that clarity and you’re not getting it , just ask.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
The specifics of treatment are quite blurry two years later. After 3 IUIs Dr Pritts encouraged us to move on to IVF. My other option was to have surgery for the endometriosis but she was not confident that it would make a difference. She ultimately left the decision to my husband and I and we chose IVF, though I sometimes wonder if the surgery could have been sufficient. The egg retrieval went smoothly but when it came time to transfer I reacted poorly to the birth control and we had to take 3 months off to reset my hormones. My first transfer of 2 frozen embryos ended in a chemical, which was completely heartbreaking. We took a month off and then transferred one embryo, adding in prednisone to try to avoid another miscarriage. That one became my now 15 month old daughter. I have one embryo left on ice to try for a future sibling.
Describe Elizabeth Pritts's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Dr Pritts let us choose the number of embryos. The first transfer I opted for two and she supported that decision. I struggled to lose two in one go again (especially since we only had 2 left) so I opted to transfer one the next time and she agreeed that that was the best decision.

They are only caring for those trying to conceive and as someone with a long journey of infertility it is so appreciated to know that that is one safe place for me to go and not see large pregnant bellies everywhere. There are no pictures of babies visible and the clinic doesn't even look like a clinic.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
I don't know what they would need any advice, seeing her would be the best decision in the infertility Journey.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
She was very flexible with everything! We went to Wisconsin for our treatments even though we lived in Minnesota and she was very flexible with who is on what we did and what information she would transfer over so that we would be able to move forward quicker than if we were to temporarily move down there to get things taken care of. We did an embryo adoption and she is the one that performed our transfer. She also did everything leading up to that point to get ready for it.

Administrative staff was knowledgeable. Insurance staff worked hard with insurance companies to save us money. Dr Olive and Dr Pritts are top notch.

How was your experience with David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
He was amazing! Very understanding. He was knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. Positive yet realistic. He has also been through infertility so he is empathetic and compassionate. The entire clinic was amazing. Definitely would go again and would recommend!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Go in with an idea of what your limits are financially and otherwise but also be willing to be flexible with yourself. Review the website before your consult and give some thought to where you would like to start and how fast you would like to go. Be flexible with this too.
Describe the protocols David Olive used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
Dr olive started with a mid range dosage of letrozole because I only have one Fallopian tube and he wanted me to ovulate on that side each month. We then tried increasing the dosage because we weren’t seeing progress. We tried IUI but he suggested we stop and save our money because my husband’s sperm count was great. We really appreciated this and felt that he wasn’t just wanting us to spend our money. He cared about us. He is in it for the families, not the money. We took a break after that because I was starting a new job and wanted to focus. They were so understanding. When we went back he created a plan for a surgery to assess the stage of my endometriosis and to further assess the status of my remaining tube after my OBGYN performed a test on it (went through my OBGYN because it was cheaper) Dr olive always looked for ways to save us money too. In the meantime before the surgery he asked us if we wanted to try Gonal-f injections with the letrozole and the trigger shot. The trigger shot was used from our first cycle with the letrozole. He also gave us info about micro IVF. We decided to go ahead with the injections and that we would consider the micro ivf depending on the findings from surgery. I never had surgery because I got pregnant with the injections right away!
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
Insurance covered a lot of things and what was not covered was reasonable. They worked with us on lab work, testing, and medications to find the best price. One of my Injections came from New Jersey because it saved me $500 to order from there. Dr. Olive’s staff took care of that order for me.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
When we first started to see Dr. Olive, he seemed very compassionate. But as time went on, our visits became shorter and shorter and he acted annoyed whenever we tried to ask questions. He also openly mocked me and called me "OCD" because I'd done research on my own and was very knowledgeable about what testing I'd already had done and what the results were. We always left appointments feeling brushed aside and confused.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at WFI is far better than either of the doctors. They actually take the time to talk to patients and listen to concerns, and they are very knowledgeable.
What specific things went wrong at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
We went to WFI because it was the only place that was even minimally covered by our insurance. At first Dr. Olive seemed to care- our first appointment was over an hour long and we left feeing hopeful. But there were some red flags- he refused to do ANY testing (not so much as a blood draw) for me or my husband and said that since I'd gotten pregnant before on my own (which ended in miscarriage) tests were "probably not necessary." He just immediately prescribed a high dose of letrozole with an ovidrel trigger and specifically told me "not to bother" with ovulation tests. However, the date I was always told to trigger was always several days after my monitoring ultrasound and I was worried about missing ovulation. Each cycle I produced 3-4 follicles, but did not get pregnant. For a second time, I specifically asked about having a semen analysis for my husband and was told it wasn't needed. When we asked how long we would continue this protocol before making the decision to try something else, he just waved his hand (as though to wave off our concerns) and said "indefinitely!" He always refused to even discuss anything beyond the current cycle because "this cycle is going to be the one!" Finally on our 6th cycle I demanded IUI. At my monitoring ultrasound, the nurse said to make sure to do ovulation kits before triggering, to make sure I didn't miss ovulation (the opposite of what Dr. Olive had told us) and sure enough, I had a LH surge prior to trigger. So our timing with timed intercourse had likely been completely off for the previous 5 cycles. On the day of our IUI, my husband gave his sample and we were told to return in 2 hours, me with a full bladder. When we returned, we were kept waiting 20 minutes past our appointment time (with a very full bladder to the point I was in pain) while we could clearly hear the doctors and nurses joking around and socializing loudly in the hallway. When we were finally called back, I expressed frustration that we'd been kept waiting and the nurse apologized and tried to say the doctors had been "giving an inservice" for the nurses. We had heard everything- it was not an "inservice", it was a social conversation in the middle of the day with a waiting room full of angry patients. Clearly they have no regard for their patients or our time. We were then told that if the IUI wasn't successful, we needed to move on to IVF. Remember, at this point they'd done NO testing whatsoever, and WE had been the ones who pushed to be more aggressive and do IUI, and suddenly we were being told we needed a $15,000 procedure. That IUI was in fact unsuccessful, but by that time we were fed up with the poor treatment and switched to the other clinic in the area. This is relevant because once we went there, they immediately did all kinds of testing on both of us, and told us that the protocol Dr. Olive had me on should never have been done without testing first (due to several risks we'd never been informed of). We also found out that while my husband has a very high sperm count and motility, his morphology was only 1%, making our chances of conceiving without IUI or IVF very low. This means that we'd wasted nearly a year with Dr. Olive, doing medicated cycles that were all pointless, all because he refused our repeated requests for testing. Had testing been done from the beginning, we would have gone straight to IUI and IVF instead of wasting all that time and money. Also, if you look at the SART data for WFI, their IVF success rates are shockingly low, so even if we'd done IVF, chances are it would have been a very expensive failure.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Olive at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Do not go to Dr. Olive at all. You will end up disappointed, frustrated, and broke.

How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts spent a lot of time with us explaining everything we did or were about to do. She was very compassionate while we were there. I was even told she doesn’t have anything to do with the billing portion so patients can’t say anything about her doing a procedure or not doing a proc sure based on paying or not.

The clinic [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] is so peaceful and beautiful! I felt like I was at a spa rather than at a clinic! It was wonderful! The front office staff was extraordinarily friendly and knew exactly what I needed and got me in to see Dr Pritts super quickly! Their messages to me were extremely clear and concise and just very very good!... I am having an operative hysteroscopy and a laparoscopic/robotic myomectomy.

Dr. Pritts is a great doctor. She is kind, caring and compassionate. She wants what you want and is willing to do what it takes to get you it.

Each IUI with ultrasound, medicine and procedure were around $800.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
They are personable but maybe see to many patients to stay on top of every ones unique issues. They are accommodating to your schedule and to what they can to fit you in. Dr. Pritts is on call and you can text her anytime which is super helpful and reassuring when you have questions that are keeping you up at night. The portal works some of the time so be sure to know your protocol or have them write it down so that if the portal is down, you know your medication protocol.

Amy [a nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute]..amazing! If I could reach Dr Pritts she was there, if she couldn't answer the question she found Dr Pritts. Her caring and compassion is off the charts! The nurse is so important on these cycles and Amy is one to go above and beyond.... Everyone is so willing to help out. Occasionally the front desk girl made us feel like an inconvenience but only one. Everyone makes you feel good, it's very spa like so you dont have that uncomfortable feeling of a doctors office. We traveled from another state to have their care!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She took a lot of one on one time with me and my husband. That meant a lot during the process.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
From what I remember they weren’t super talkative. Didn’t really tell me much until Dr Pritts came in.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
She was very aggressive with my treatment plan. Didn’t do anything I didn’t feel comfortable with. Was upfront about costs due to no insurance coverage for infertility. I feel like maybe after my 2nd IUI we should have gotten more aggressive with the drugs. Also maybe suggest I look into me having endometriosis since it ran in my family.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be ready to go with your treatment plan and be ready for side effects from treatments physically and emotionally.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
She strongly urged to use letrozole over clomid. Felt like the side effects were better and less chance of birth defects. I liked that she was on top of that.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
The IUI procedure ran about $700 plus costs of medications. Sometimes I needed more then one ultrasound so it costed a little more.

I have really mixed feelings about WFI. All of the staff are wonderful and I believe I received excellent care as a patient there. We didn't have the outcome we were hoping for, unfortunately. I don't think our FETs failed because of this clinic, but I think other patients considering WFI should do their research on WFI's success rates and compare with other clinics. I think that the embryology lab at WFI is probably too small and needs to be improved in terms of staffing.

The first thing I noticed when my husband and I visited the clinic [Wisconsin Fertility Institute] was how it did not have a "clinic" or "hospital" feel to it at all. The staff was always very friendly...I had good experience with each nurse I had contact with. Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable...Dr Pritts was always very personable during my appts and shared her experience with infertility to make me feel like I wasn't alone. She always made me feel like she genuinely cared. She was quick to respond to my emails herself and during my fresh IVF cycle she called me everyday between my retrieval and transfer to tell me how our embryos were doing. I cannot say enough good things about her.

Sometimes, it took forever to receive a call back [from a nurse at WFI-Middleton]. Sometimes, my messages would get missed in the portal. The worst was when someone called very chipper and optimistically with my negative pregnancy test results. That was heart-wrenching..... Spa like, but also seems harried and unorganized. You see tons of new people at every visit and this feels more anonymous than family-like. Ask a million questions so you don't feel like you're getting lost.

Describe your experience with Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
This clinic is wonderful. When you walk in, there is light and soothing music playing. The lights are slightly dimmed, which allows you to feel comforted and relaxed. The overall atmosphere is welcoming and doesn't feel like a clinic. This was incredibly important to me as I have had numerous transvaginal ultrasounds and examinations during our journey. Having fertility issues is stressful, and I didn't like the blaring white fluorescent lights on me, especially when I feel discouraged. The delicate lights and the way each room is slightly dark, makes me feel relaxed and at ease. A strength is this clinic will fit you in, no matter the time. They will make it work. I appreciate that so much and it is so helpful when you have a concern. A weakness is that sometimes you are seen late for an appt. But I am definitely ok with it, because that means they probably just needed to squeeze someone in. I will do whatever it takes to work with this clinic.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is amazing. She speaks to you with compassion and encouragement, every single time. Any time I have questions, she takes her time and speaks to me from the heart. She 'feels' our pain because she has experienced it herself. She knows what it feels like; the pain, the struggle, the anxiety, the unrelenting wish to have a child of our own. She has been extremely wonderful throughout our journey. She also keeps in touch by letting me have her personal number, if I have concerns. I have never worked with a Dr that was willing to be so in contact. I cannot say enough good things about her. She is determined to do whatever it takes to help us conceive and I can feel her love and strength each time we talk with her.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Wisconsin Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Jen/Meghan)
I am fortunate to have met such a wonderful and caring team. Each time I call or email any questions/concerns, the nursing staff is incredibly prompt and respectful to me. I know I can ask a lot of questions, but they don't make me feel like a bother. I want to feel involved in my journey and I am very open to asking questions. No matter when I reach out to the clinic, they make me feel welcome and that I am the only person they are helping at that moment. Jen and Meghan have been very helpful in my journey. I feel comfortable speaking to them, openly and honestly, no matter the question. Their positivity and enthusiasm to help are comforting. I am so lucky to have an amazing team working with me and helping us get our baby.
How was your experience with Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Dr. Pritts is deeply honest, inspiring, and deeply caring. I always feel that I am in the best care possible and feel fulfilled knowing she is doing what she can to improve our success. She is honest, open, and explains everything thoroughly and makes sure that my husband and I understand. I feel that I am the most important person to her, each time I see her or speak with her. I walk into the clinic and feel such peace and comfort, knowing that everything we can do, is being done. Dr. Pritts is such a light in my life, in a dark and difficult time. All we want to do is have a baby, she feels our pain and she is there for us. I can feel her care each time I see her. She is truly amazing.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute?
Be open and honest about your concerns. Ask questions, don't hold back.
Describe the protocols Elizabeth Pritts used in your cycles at Wisconsin Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We started seeing Dr. Pritts in March 2018. We were referred to WFI from our OB, after experiencing a complete molar pregnancy in April 2017. The molar pregnancy resulted in needing to wait almost a full year before trying again. We did get pregnant again in Dec 2017, but was our first miscarriage. We were delighted to see we were pregnant again in Jan 2018, but had another miscarriage a few short weeks later, in early Feb 2018. At our first appointment with Dr. Pritts in March 2018, we had a consult and reviewed our troubles and concerns. We were thrilled at her treatment plans and felt very optimistic. We had an HSG at one of our first appointments as well. Everything looked great, no blockage, but several fibroids were seen. I started Letrozole in June 2018 for that cycle. We were told to do timed intercourse for that cycle, along with HCG trigger shot. We did get a positive pregnancy test in July 2018, however, ended up being another miscarriage. Under her direction, we underwent a hysteroscopy to remove the tissue and some problematic fibroids. I got my cycle back in mid August 2018. Due to some discomfort that I was feeling in Sept, Dr. Pritts advised we should have surgery again, as a laparoscopy to remove a cyst and some additional fibroids, which were impeding on the uterine cavity. Which ultimately would affect implantation. Due to the extent and delicacy of the surgery, we were informed that we could not attempt conception for 3 cycles. This brought us to Jan 2019. We did our first IUI procedure, with Letrozole, on Jan 2. Everything went well, but did not get a positive test that month. Feb 2019, our timing didn't work out to do IUI, so we had intercourse during the fertile week. Another negative test. March 2 and March 29, we did IUI with Letrozole and HCG trigger, still negative tests. Although, I did have a very light line on pregnancy tests from the March 2 IUI, which we assumed to be a chemical as the line faded and my period arrived 2 days late. April we were going to do IUI with Letrozole and HCG trigger, but I ovulated early on CD8. Which is the day I start opk testing. I am disappointed, to say the least. We didn't even have a fighting chance this month. I just feel completely let down that I ovulated so early, never have I ever ovulated that early. My previous cycles with Letrozole and HCG trigger, I had ovulated around CD12. So, I was shocked when Dr. Pritts told me I had ovulated already at my follicular ultrasound on April 23, 2019. We have our IVF consult set up next Tues, April 30 to review our options to move forward to IVF. I recently turned 40, on March 30. My husband and I are determined and committed to do whatever it takes to have success and have our baby. I would appreciate and love the honor of this grant. As we have spent over $20,000 on surgeries/procedures/medications since we started our journey in Dec 2016. Thank you so much for your consideration and time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Elizabeth Pritts at Wisconsin Fertility Institute.
During 2018, we had 1 laparoscopic surgery and 3 hysteroscopy procedures. We also had 1 Hysterosalpingogram and 1 Sonohysterogram. We also took Letrozole as well as HCG trigger in June 2018. Since 2019 started, we have done 3 IUI procedures. Each IUI, we used Letrozole and HCG trigger. In March 2019, I had another Hysterosalpingogram to check my tubes and uterus since my surgery in October 2018. In May 2019, Dr. Pritts has scheduled to do another hysteroscopy to help remove any scar tissue that may be impacting my uterus and preventing an embryo from implanting. Each month, we had at least one ultrasound, sometimes more than one. Over our fertility journey, I would say I have had over 50 transvaginal ultrasounds. Our costs have been substantial and impactful. We are nervous about our fertility future but are hopeful that things will work out for us.

Unfortunately because our insurance doesn’t cover fertility treatments, the cost is out of pocket however they have financial employees to help. And I know the costs are cheaper than other fertility clinics as I have friends in other cities under fertility treatments and they are paying more.

The doctor is great! The follow up could be better just to see how you are doing after a treatment from the nurses [Wisconsin Fertility Institute]. Just a follow up phone call a week or so after and a follow up phone call the day after a treatment would go a long ways if you had something going wrong or to see how you are feeling.... She [Dr. Pritts] personally treated us as a human but her nurses were less warm.
