Describe your experience with Parkview Health.
It is nice to have a doctor offer these services in such a small town. He is the only doctor that offers the services so if he is on vacation then a cycle has to be skipped. The staff are excellent and caring. All are very knowledgeable about the procedures and pharmacies that offer the medications for treatment on this area.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Almario Tantoco at Parkview Health.
My insurance didn't cover medications so that all come out of pocket. The femara pills were relatively affordable but the gonal f injections were $500 per round, and the hcg injections were expensive as well.
