he [Dr. Bill Meyer] was shocked to see that we were having such a hard time conceiving at our age. The only thing That was a little iffy to me was that he talked pretty fast so it was difficult to keep up with and remember all the things he said. He was determined to get us answers and even tried to see if there was a way to get the testing covered under our insurance...wanted to run quite a few tests on both me and my husband. Sperm analysis, blood draws, and he also wanted to do an ultrasound with contrast to looks at my ovaries. We’re still waiting on some testing now.
The clinic [Carolina Conceptions] was well kept and organized and the nurses were compassionate. The only weakness I found was that all the testing that we needed to have done had to be done at their office which is about 2 hours away from where we live. Everything else was great!...My husband is in the military and the clinic was very helpful with that...offer some amazing discounts for military couples. I believe it’s around 50% depending on the procedure
How was your experience with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr. Meyer was actually fantastic in my opinion. I saw him at an office down in Wilmington and he was shocked to see that we were having such a hard time conceiving at our age. The only thing That was a little iffy to me was that he talked pretty fast so it was difficult to keep up with and remember all the things he said. He was determined to get us answers and even tried to see if there was a way to get the testing covered under our insurance.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
One piece of advice would be to take a note pad with you to take notes

He really seemed to confident in being able to get us some answers as to why we were having so many issues

Describe your experience with Carolina Conceptions.
As a new patient (and being an infertility newbie) I was super nervous going to this office. I wasn’t sure what they were going to do or what questions they would ask. Dr. Meyer was amazing at keeping me calm throughout the whole thing and was comforting when I explained our situation. The clinic was well kept and organized and the nurses were compassionate. The only weakness I found was that all the testing that we needed to have done had to be done at their office which is about 2 hours away from where we live. Everything else was great!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
My husband is in the military and the clinic was very helpful with that. Unfortunately our insurance does not cover any infertility treatments but the clinic does offer some amazing discounts for military couples. I believe it’s around 50% depending on the procedure

I feel like Dr. Meyer was very caring and compassionate. I felt he was very thorough in his explanations and plan for my care. I fully trust him with my care. I do feel as if the communication between him and his partners, as well as other staff, was lacking...To prepare for egg retrieval I was placed on 3 injection medication. 20 units of lurpon twice daily, 1 vial of menopur twice daily and 225 IU of gonal f twice daily. I was told these were the highest doses I could take, I was on high doses for low AMH level.
I think if you are struggling with infertility that this practice [Carolina Conceptions] is one that can help you. They have been very helpful, kind, compassionate and patient with us...I thought that the nursing staff was great! They were awesome in our care. Again, the only complaint I have is that they were not on the same page as far as our changes in our plan of care...I just felt there was some lack in communication among physicians and staff.
How was your experience with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
I feel like Dr. Meyer was very caring and compassionate. I felt he was very thorough in his explanations and plan for my care. I fully trust him with my care. I do feel as if the communication between him and his partners, as well as other staff, was lacking. I found out during my first pelvic ultrasound that I had a uterine fibroid that required myomectomy. This changed my course of treatment in which we had planned. Upon talking to Dr. Meyer's partner and some other staff in the office they continued to tell me that we were on the same original plan and I had to keep telling them that there had been changes. His partner performed my egg retrieval and she didn't even measure the fibroid or have answers to my questions about our plan post op. I felt as if the communication could have been better so those involved in my care we're updated on what was going on.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
Expect the unexpected and make sure you are always on top of what's going on
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
As a patient of this practice, when dealing with physicians, I felt as is they were very available to answer questions or concerns I had. Even after hours and over weekends. Anytime I sent an email day, night or weekend I always received a response that day. I felt like I was treated with much care.

For after the egg retrieval I was placed on an z pack antibiotic for 6 days, a steroid twice a day for 5 days and estrogen until further notice.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
We paid $10,365 which includes egg aspiration, ultrasound guidance, egg identification, sperm wash, egg insemination, culture of eggs, embryo prep for transfer, embryo glue, transfer, nitrogen. Also this costs covered our nursing class to be taught about injections, cryopreservaton, anesthesia and a cycle management fee to cover us being monitored by another practice, as we love out of town. The injection drugs that were needed costs right around $8,000. We paid anywhere from $150-$300 per visit for lab work and ultrasound to monitor follicles. We had 5-6 visits for lab work and ultrasound.

Dr. Meyer provides a lot of information in your first consultation. You may end up having questions after your first visit. Don't hesitate to make a follow-up appointment(s) to get answers to your questions. There are also you tube videos (a little out dated) but give you a general idea of what to expect for an IVF transfer... This resulted in a retrieval of 4 eggs, 3 were mature and fertilized. On Day 3, all 3 embryos had divided into about 8-9 cells. And on Day 5, only 1 embryo had developed into an early stage blastocyst which was transferred on Day 5. The rationale to wait until Day 5 was because there were 3 viable embryos on Day 3 as opposed to having only 1 or 2 on Day 3. This way, had there been 3 blastocysts on Day 5, we could have selected the 2 best for transfer.
In the last 5 months, we have worked with several nurses (Michelle, Terry) and staff at Carolina Conceptions. You get the feeling that the nurses and entire staff from the front desk attendant, Keisha, to the financial coordinator, Kelly, is pulling for your success. It feels like a family at times and was just what we needed when we encountered bumps in the road... This resulted in a retrieval of 4 eggs, 3 were mature and fertilized.

How was your experience with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr Meyer appears to be very knowledgeable with regard to fertility treatment options and gives a lot of information related to the process. You get the feeling that both he and the entire staff are really in your corner and pulling for a successful outcome. In our case, he analyzed the procedural outcome and test results during treatment to make modifications for our second attempt at IVF.

Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
We completed three rounds of IUI with negative pregnancy results. During this treatment, I injected 225 Follistem daily for 8-12 days.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
My insurance covered the majority of the costs. I paid $35 co-pays for consulting appt, ultrasounds, HSG, semen analysis, monitoring visits/lab work, IUI, egg retrieval, and embryo transfer. I also paid $75 for the class to learn how to self-administer the injectables. Some medications for the second round of IVF were compounded and not covered by insurance. These were about $500 for one round of IVF.

We used a fairly heavy stim cycle [with Dr. Bill Meyer] as my AMH was .8. It seemed to be exactly right as everything proceeded as expected. We were told that I had 12-15 good follicles and with every set of labs it looked as though we were the perfect IVF candidates. The numbers fit exactly with what we were told and what I read from others. I even felt great and experienced few of the discomforts I was reading about or discussing with others online. We were very, very excited. In the end, the fibroids which were thought to be not a problem apparently made egg retrieval nearly impossible. Not only was only one egg retrieved, but a fresh transfer was made not an option because of complications during the process. We expected to have a retrieval and fresh transfer and instead left with only hope of 1 egg to fertilize and freeze. It was a fail.
The clinic [Carolina Conceptions- Raleigh] was generally good. The care coordination and instructions were excellent and we were easily able to get daily updates. They also were good at maximizing our insurance benefits which covered more than we expected.... Slightly dismissive of failure which was huge to us, but then refunded $$ that they did not have to without being asked.

Dr. Meyer was always positive. I remember my first visit where he told me that I should not have any problems conceiving with the first treatment, which was great...until I did. I saw him cycle after cycle over a year's time. The positivity gave me false hope, especially when he did not thoroughly read my chart/history before the appointment. Several times I had to wait and watch him skim through the chart. It may have been more appropriate to do so prior to walking into the appointment. I still wonder if the course of treatment would have changed if he had been more informed about my history.
The clinic [Carolina Conceptions] is always on time, which is only a bad thing if you are the patient which has to be rushed. The front desk staff and financial staff seemed to remember me more than the nurses or doctor...[Nursing] Strengths: Kind, friendly Weakness: Rushed, not always organized - Once, I had an entire monitoring visit completed when the nurse realized that she was looking at someone else's chart... Also, one of the nurses expressed her disapproval of me going through the IVF process with no intensions of marrying my boyfriend.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
I was never pressured into or out of a treatment plan.
Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
It has been a while since my last treatment and well over a year since I started. I am unsure of my diagnosis, but it was believe that I do not ovulate on a regular basis. My GYN believed that I suffered from PCOS, but Dr. Meyer never talked about that. I was considered young at 30. We started with oral medication to stimulate my ovaries (timed intercourse method). Many follicles were produced but they were very little. We moved to stronger injectable medicine (follistim/gonal f) that would do the same thing in a bigger way. I consistently produced one to two follicles that were the appropriate size for a trigger shot to release them in time for intercourse. However to this day, I still feel like those one to two follicles were actually cysts. I always have a few cysts, but the nurses could not distinguish them from actual follicles once they grew to a certain size. After multiple cycles, we decided on IVF. The same injectable stimulating medicines were used but at a higher dosage prior to egg retrieval. We froze seven embryos, described to us as good quality. We felt pressured by the staff to only transfer one embryo, so we did. It failed.

Strengths: Kind, friendly Weakness: Rushed, not always organized - Once, I had an entire monitoring visit completed when the nurse realized that she was looking at someone else's chart. She was not looking for the correct things and had to redo the ultrasound. Also, one of the nurses expressed her disapproval of me going through the IVF process with no intensions of marrying my boyfriend.

The clinic is always on time, which is only a bad thing if you are the patient which has to be rushed. The front desk staff and financial staff seemed to remember me more than the nurses or doctor.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
My initial treatments were covered by insurance, so several copays of $40. Insurance would not cover any IUI or IVF. I did not try IUI. For single IVF, I believe that I paid $14,000 not including monitoring or prescriptions. Monitoring was $300-$400 per visit and I remember having 4 visits. Medication was probably around $5,000.
Describe Bill Meyer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Carolina Conceptions.
We felt pressured to transfer one embryo. It wasn't discussed and explained to me until I was in scrubs and waiting in triage for the transfer. It was uncomfortable and we only heard statistics that were pro single. We used the best grade and only transferred one.
What specific things went wrong at Carolina Conceptions?
  • Lost appointments
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Carolina Conceptions.
I only had one occurrence where the clinic lost my appointment, but I still had the appointment card for proof. They saw me anyway, but I had to wait. As previously discussed, there were a few times when the nursing staff did not have the correct chart pulled up and had to redo work. Also, Dr. Meyer had a habit of not being prepared for appointments, especially consults or follow ups. He did not read the historical information prior to the appointment.

Dr. Meyer is very professional. He speaks quickly and gives a thorough review of you and your infertility causes. When oral medications were not working for me he didn't waste my time or money waiting an extra cycle to see if it would work. We quickly moved onto the next phase of intervention with injections. I have two daughters now because of Dr Meyer, so I will be forever grateful.
The nurses [at Carolina Conceptions] completed all of my ultrasounds and lab work which were the majority of my appointments. They were gentle and very timely with my results. They also shared in my joy when reporting both pregnancies...They provide toys and have a children's area when waiting. You will have many appointments usually and the front desk staff become familiar with you and are very helpful and kind. They ask questions and care about you. The clinic is even open on weekends when you need appointments because of your cycle and where you are in the treatment regiment.

He jokes around a bit so don't be too sensitive.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
I got a private consulatation where he reviewed my entire history of PCOS. He treated both me and my husband with respect and was very encouraging to our situation. He gave us hope that the infertility struggles would end at this clinic. After my first daughter, I came back to Dr. Meyer a second time. He remembered me and my husband without me saying anything at all. He was also very sensitive to my grief over the recent miscarriage I had before visiting him.
Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
I took Clomid unsuccessfully for 2 cycles then was moved to a daily dose of pregnitude to manage my PCOS and Femera unsuccessfully for 1 cycle. The second cycle produced a viable pregnancy. The second time I visited the clinic was 2 years later and I was placed on femera again unsuccessfully. After one cycle he removed me from that and we began hormone injections. After one cycle I became pregnant. During the injections I did over-respond to the hormones and had ovarian hyperstimulation which was extremely painful. Dr Meyer encouraged me that it was a good thing and most likely meant I was pregnant.

Describe your experience with Carolina Conceptions.
This clinic is very convenient to find. It is the top floor in a medical park building, so that helps with privacy when accessing it. They provide toys and have a children's area when waiting.

The clinic is even open on weekends when you need appointments because of your cycle and where you are in the treatment regiment.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
I paid for each ultrasound out of pocket. I had horrible health insurance though. I paid out of pocket for all my medications. My treatment regimen the second time was exponentially more expensive.

Dr. Meyer was very professional and his medical knowledge and explanations made us very confident in his abilities. It was obvious he was experienced and had a track record for success. He was willing to answer any questions that we had.... We needed to do PGD on top of IVF to screen for a debilitating genetic disease that runs in the family. We also did PGS to make sure we had a higher chance of implantation. My wife needed adjustments several times to her medications, which were always clearly explained. We ended up only having 1 embryo that did not carry the genetic mutation. However, we were able to successful have a beautiful healthy baby.
The nursing staff [at Carolina Conceptions] were excellent at showing/explaining medication administration, answering questions, and being available outside of office visits via phone/email.... The strengths are great success rates, warm and friendly doctors/nurses, some great front desk staff.... Around $25,000. A lot of that came from the PGD though, since the embryo had to be frozen, sent away, screened, returned, and then implanted.

I appreciated Dr. Meyer's suggestion of sticking with a single embryo transfer if we were on the fence. We did not need to make that decision, but I feel with the success rates they have it is sound advice.

He [Dr Meyer at Carolina Conceptions] takes the time to really answer your questions, whether during an appointment or through email. He made it very clear to us that we had poor chances of being successful with IUI. When we decided we wanted to try that route first, he took an aggressive approach which I appreciated. I know a few folks personally who had success with Carolina Conceptions, so it brings me hope. I would recommend this practice.

Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
We were diagnosed solely with male factor infertility. Dr. Meyer said we were candidates of IUI because the MFI is mild enough, but he made it clear to us that our chances of success were low. To take a more aggressive approach and to increase out chances as much as possible, Dr. Meyer prescribed me injectables (follistim) to prepare for our IUI. Injectables give you the best chances if you're dealing with MFI. We've had two unsuccessful IUIs so far, and will try one more (because we have 3 covered under our insurance) before moving to IVF.

Describe the specific things that went wrong at Carolina Conceptions.
They've forgotten to send my husband's semen analysis results to the urologist clinic a couple of times. They always give us the results via email though so it wasn't a big deal.

Dr Meyer was very honest, to the point and direct. He covered the pros and cons and did not seem motivated by money. I truly appreciated his candor. I often saw other doctors in the practice as they rotated days, but I felt that they were all competent and had a common goal. If I could have had my way, I would definitely prefer to have the same MD and RN every time and have unlimited time and nurturing with them, but I don't feel that it is realistic. A busy clinic means lost of experience… and ultimately, they are rated on success so they want good results as well.
Strengths [of Carolina Conceptions]- experienced staff and one stop shopping. All aspects of the process from donor to lab to embryologist are all on site. They do so many procedures that the process is a well oiled machine. Weaknesses - Due to the large number of cases, in-depth root cause analysis is probably not done when the result is negative. They need to move on to the next patient. All the staff were very friendly and tried not to show the urgency that they are under to handle so many patients, but it was apparent simply by the lack of therapeutic communication, counseling and the buzz of the clinic.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
I didn't get the result I wanted, so I can't boast about his skill set, but I would advise patients to lay out their expectations on the first visit so that they aren't disappointed. Ultimately, a baby is the desired result and all the time and emotional support in the world won't be consolation if the process is unsuccessful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
Being a healthcare professional myself, I am not easily offended by the need for productivity and turning over patients. The process was definitely that of an assembly line, but I did however get the attention I needed when I was in front of the MDs and RNs. My main concern is the skill level of the staff.
Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
All I really recall is frequent lab tests and ultrasounds. My instructions would tell me exactly when to take my meds and my appointments were adjusted based on my results. The lab and embryologist are on site so there were no concerns with freezing and sending samples.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Carolina Conceptions.
the nurses were very busy with a constant stream of patients. I did not however feel that they were at fault for that. They have to keep up with the requirements. There was very little emotional support but their technique was good. I didn't experience any errors or concerns. The phlebotomists were very capable.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions.
I don't recall the exact cost, but I did feel that they would nickel and dime you to death. they offered discounts but only on packages that ended in multiple failures. There was no opportunity for saving money or appearance of empathy when repeated investments were needed. I used a donor embyro, and that donor had many frozen embryos available. I paid to be put on the wait list, only got 2 embryos, when the pregnancy test was negative I had to pay again to be put back on the 6 month wait list. I had requested to use more of that donor's embryos and I was not given the opportunity. they went to the next person on the wait list.

Be prepared for a an honest and direct conversation, he [Dr. Meyer] is willing to answer any question... I appreciated for the times we had consultations that he invited us into his office for focused time... I believe his confidence in treatment options avaialable renew your sense of hope. He is willing to share the good and the bad, setting expectations for what might happen but each case is unique.
$9,675 was one treatment cycle of IVF plus medications and copays [at Carolina Conceptions]...In the same building with an acupuncturist for complimentary sessions to toe treatment. Office hours with early and weekend hours allow you to work into your schedule easily. Space is clean, but could use a refresh on the interior. Lab, treatment and procedure space onsite with classes offered...they [nurses] were good at explaining the process to make you feel more at ease. The nurse would be waiting for you after you got dressed to go over any additional details.
How was your experience with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr Meyer speaks confidently and directly. With bad news it comes across as insensitive at times, but I believe his confidence in treatment options avaialable renew your sense of hope. He is willing to share the good and the bad, setting expectations for what might happen but each case is unique. I appreciated for the times we had consultations that he invited us into his office for focused time.

Be prepared for a an honest and direct conversation, he is willing to answer any question, so be as prepared as possible to get the most out of the visit.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Bill Meyer at Carolina Conceptions?
It felt as if my higher risk and concerns for the diagnosed anaotomical anomalies were not impacting suggested treatment plans. Dr. Meyer was fairly blunt that to get over some of the difficulties and symptoms I had from the treatment plan of injections and timed intercourse for 3 cycles. My PCOS and body did not respond well to the treatments, and we had 3 failed attempts all resulting in negative pregnancy tests. Dr Meyer was confident in the treatment plan, but the news that he shared with me was abrupt and certainly not expected and could have been more soft in delivery. I felt very human around the rest of the staff and they were always courteous and accommodating. I also felt a strong sense of hope when I walked in each time.
Describe the protocols Bill Meyer used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
Dr Meyer knew that with PCOS I was not ovulating on cycle and with one ovary I had to regulate my cycle with injections. He also suggested an additional mayo-inositol supplement to take leading up to the cycle. We had regular monitoring visits and adjusted treatments as needed to speed up or slow down stimulating follicles. When my follicles were stimulated I had 2-3 large follicles each cycle, but that part of the treatment was painful and uncomfortable for me.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Carolina Conceptions.
Courtesy was afforded at each step and they were good at explaining the process to make you feel more at ease. The nurse would be waiting for you after you got dressed to go over any additional details.

Describe Bill Meyer's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Carolina Conceptions.
For my case Dr Meyer recommended only a single embryo transfer. The reasoning is that with a smaller uterus, the risk of multiples would add another layer of complications and we agreed when we got to IVF one embryo would be considered for each cycle.

Bill Meyer was straightforward in telling me my weight could cause problems and that I would probably end up with gestational diabetes (which I did); he went through all options and listed the pros and cons; when we did our first transfer it was using fresh embryos. My husband and I were concerned about how high my levels were and that they might negatively impact the viability of the transfer (which ended up happening-they transferred 2 and they did not take. I was later told that yes my levels were extremely high and that is likely what caused the negative transfer). Needless to say we were not happy about that.
Spacious waiting area [at Carolina Conceptions], clean, friendly front desk staff...[nurses are] Friendly, well informed, accomodating, put you at ease... I know I responded really well to the injections used to up my egg count before the egg retrieval. I had a ton of eggs-albeit they didn't all end up being very good, but I had maybe 12 that were usable. Before the first transfer my body responded too well and I ended up with levels that were extremely high.

He [Dr. Meyer] is straight forward so if you have trouble hearing things you don't want to hear be prepared....He gave me 2 prescriptions one for Femara & one for Tamoxifen to help me ovulate. He put 4 refills on each and that is it. I do not have a follow up or anything since I do not fall in the BMI to go further that is all my treatment will be.... I know that my weight was in issue but I have been cleared by other doctors to do treatment and I felt like he was doing it reluctantly.
The only nurse [Carolina Conceptions] I spoke with was very judgmental about my weight and even gave the provider the wrong BMI she made it 3 points higher than it should have been....It was actually only $40 but all i did was talk to the doctor and nurse. No tests were not at this visit and nothing but a prescription for pills was given.... He [Dr. Meyer] is straight forward so if you have trouble hearing things you don't want to hear be prepared.

Proceeded to IVF with only 4 embryos. Implanted 2 embryos and that failed. We have 1 frozen embryo of poorer quality for a FET that we have postponed at this time.

Dr. Meyer did a good job of explaining the process to us and changing course when the first plan didn't work. The only area we had some miscommunication was how unlikely the frozen eggs were to be successful.... We were impressed with everyone's professionalism and general kindness [at Carolina Conceptions] during a very difficult time for us.... We harvested our eggs first, implanted them but that didn't work. We then tried frozen donor eggs, however, this process has a low success rate.

[Dr. Bill Meyer is] a straight shooter, which we appreciated. He's not overly warm, but we felt like he was being honest with us, which we liked. He warned us we had a slim chance and that ended up panning out. If you want a warm and fuzzy doctor, he's probably not your best bet. If you want brutal honesty, go with him!

Dr. Meyer is a doctor who cares about you as a person. While he is not the doctor who I typically see when undergoing care, the clinic has several other great doctors and they have a set rotation, especially for weekend procedures.... Dr. Meyer made sure that I felt safe and secure all the way through to my first child. I am hoping to get the same result this time around.
