Dr. Bedient was clear and concise in all her communication with me. At times she was a little short or perhaps rushed. I got the sense that she sees many, many patients and gives the same talking points to all of them, which I can't fault her for. Overall I trust her expertise...Do your own reading and research ahead of time and between visits, so you don't feel as rushed through the process...
The clinic [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] is efficient. One weakness I observed is that the front desk staff are not kind or attentive, and neither are the folks handling the payment side of things. They are hard to reach by phone and not very helpful. My experience with them so far has been overwhelming and impersonal...there were instances when I felt that the staff were focused on the money-making aspect of the business over the patient's experience...

Do your own reading and research ahead of time and between visits, so you don't feel as rushed through the process.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
I felt like a human most of the time, but there were instances when I felt that the staff were focused on the money-making aspect of the business over the patient's experience.
Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
I went though genetic testing, ultrasounds, and extensive bloodwork. I was then diagnosed with a uterine fibroid. Because my insurance does not cover any fertility services, I opted to go back to my OBGYN to take care of the hysteroscopy to remove the fibroid. If I had the procedure with Dr. Bedient, it would have cost close to $4,000.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
One of the tests I had involved a saline solution injected through my vaginal opening and into my uterus. The nurse who performed the procedure on me gave me little warning that it would be extremely painful. I was shocked and shaken up afterwards.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
To complete the testing phase of fertility treatment without the help of insurance, my partner and I spent $2,500. To have the uterine fibroid removed will be an additional cost I'm not sure of yet. Our first IUI round will be about $3,000, plus the cost of the sperm donation.

Dr. Bedient is very caring and genuine once you get to meet her in person. She's very thorough and answers whatever questions you may have when you have one-on-one appointments with her. She's very patient and listens to all of your concerns...However, if you don't know the right questions to ask and are new to this process, she doesn't give out a ton of information. I learned more about the fertility journey and process by Googling and watching other women's stories on YouTube. That's how I knew to ask some questions.
She [Fertility Center of Las Vegas nurse] let me know her emails are very direct and to the point if I should have any questions. She was very fast at responding to my emails...For IVF, it was right around $26,000 out of pocket. Medication was right at $3,700...The strengths are definitely the staff. I absolutely love the ultrasound technicians I deal with and assistants. I can't begin to describe how kind they were to me while I was miscarrying. It was then that I realized they are just as invested in this process with you. The only weakness is communication. In the very beginning, I had no idea what to expect and what the next step was
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr. Bedient is very caring and genuine once you get to meet her in person. She's very thorough and answers whatever questions you may have when you have one-on-one appointments with her. She's very patient and listens to all of your concerns. She addresses everything and anything you might inquire about. However, if you don't know the right questions to ask and are new to this process, she doesn't give out a ton of information. I learned more about the fertility journey and process by Googling and watching other women's stories on YouTube. That's how I knew to ask some questions. I believe going through fertility treatments is so hard financially, emotionally, and physically. It creates so much anxiety and uncertainty. Going in as a patient, you don't always know what to ask or forget simply from nerves. Personally, I would've appreciated more appointments with Dr. Bedient herself to learn about everything I was going through. That's not to say you can't make an appointment with her because you can at any time. I suppose I just had different expectations starting this journey with the amount of time and information I'd get with Dr. Bedient and from watching, again, other women's stories. Not what I experienced.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Have a list of questions ready. If you are new to fertility like I was, you're not going to be told much other than what you ask. Do your research and ask other women what would be helpful to ask and know going into this process. Ask about all possible outcomes. I was led to believe IVF was pretty much how I was going to be successful in having a baby. Well, my egg retrieval ended up with no quality embryos. I wasn't even aware that could be a possibility since there's nothing abnormal with any of our testing. Now I'm left completely devastated. I didn't know you might have to go through a couple of retrieval to be successful. I think that's something that should be thoroughly discussed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
When you're in the actual office being seen, you get whatever questions you need answered. If the nurse or doctor isn't available, you have to call and leave a message and they're not great about getting back to you in a timely manner. Made me feel like just another number once you left the office.
Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
For the five IUI cycles I did, I thin I did the standard treatment, from what I understand. 50 milligrams of clomid for five days starting on Day 3 of my cycle. I would do the HCG trigger shot around 24 hours before the insemination. Then an antibiotic was prescribed for after the insemination to prevent infection. I had one pregnancy from five cycles, and it resulted in miscarriage at 8 weeks. For my IVF cycle, I was prescribed Menopur,Gonal,Clomid, Cetrotide,and HCG trigger shot again. I took 100 milligrams of clomid for five days along with the Menopur and Gonal for about ten days. I added in the cetrotide at the end when it was time to ovulate to stop ovulation, I believe. I did the trigger shot 24 hours before the egg retrieval.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Katie)
We met with Katie to go over all of the medications I would be taking for IVF and how to administer them. She was so very patient and sweet in explaining the shots and went over the steps multiple times with me because I was a nervous mess at that appointment. She let me know her emails are very direct and to the point if I should have any questions. She was very fast at responding to my emails. The staff there is so kind. I usually have the main girls I deal with when I go in for ultrasounds, and they're all very kind and genuine.
Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
The strengths are definitely the staff. I absolutely love the ultrasound technicians I deal with and assistants. I can't begin to describe how kind they were to me while I was miscarrying. It was then that I realized they are just as invested in this process with you. The only weakness is communication. In the very beginning, I had no idea what to expect and what the next step was. I think they forget that new patients have no idea what they're about to walk in to. They're so busy and sometimes the extra time you need is not quite given and you feel rushed. I don't believe by any means that it's intentional. I just think sometimes there's too many patients to give the care you expect to receive. This is a life-changing experience and journey. I know it's difficult to be really detailed at every appointment, but with the amount of money you're spending out of pocket, sometimes better care could have been given.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
For IVF, it was right around $26,000 out of pocket. Medication was right at $3,700. I don't know the exact breakdown, but my payment was 10,000 to the fertility clinic and 10,000 to the embryology department, I believe. 4,000 of that was for genetic testing of embryos. I'm not positive for the IUI breakdown as I paid cash first and then my insurance kicked in to cover some costs, so I had a credit for a cycle or two. Insurance does NOT cover any IVF costs for me.
Describe Carrie Bedient's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
I didn't make it to this stage as I didn't have any healthy embryos resulting from the retrieval and fertilization.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
Only the first time the prescriptions were sent to the pharmacy on time. Every single time after that, I had to call the pharmacy and have them fax the facility to get my prescriptions. The prescriptions have to be taken on set days. It's very stressful spending so much money and not having follow- through from your doctor's office. If I hadn't stayed on the doctor's office and pharmacy, one whole cycle would've been missed because I wouldn't have received the medications on time. The other thing that happened is one of my IUI cycles I went in for, they had me down for IVF with these complete wrong paperwork for my appointment. I've also had to go back to give blood because they forgot to take it while I was there. Sometimes they get so busy that they become very disorganized.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Bedient took the time to meet with me and my husband on multiple occasions to go over our treatment and answer any and all questions that we had. We finished our last cycle and egg retrieval right as Corona Virus started to get bad in my city ... Because of my DOR Dr. Bedient suggested IVF right away. We decided because it was a less expensive option to start with Clomid with IUI. We did 2 cycles of that before deciding with the Dr. to move on to IVF.
The clinic [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] is clean and the front desk staff is friendly. They make it easy and quick to go in and give blood and you can go in as early as 6am before work. The nurses that take blood are great and quick and never have an issue finding your veins. Wait time is not bad- the longest I have sat in the room waiting for ultrasound techs has been 10-15 mins.
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr. Bedient took the time to meet with me and my husband on multiple occasions to go over our treatment and answer any and all questions that we had. We finished our last cycle and egg retrieval right as Corona Virus started to get bad in my city - she gave us her personal cell number to call if I experienced any complications after the retrieval and made herself available for anything we needed. She is very gentle and caring but also gives us all the facts and doesnt sugar coat anything.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Go to your visit with her prepared with questions. She will take all the time in the world to answer every question.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr. Bedient always made me and my husband feel comfortable and like she genuinely cared.
Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
Because of my DOR Dr. Bedient suggested IVF right away. We decided because it was a less expensive option to start with Clomid with IUI. We did 2 cycles of that before deciding with the Dr. to move on to IVF. First round of IVF we did a normal protocol of Follistim, Gonal, and Ganerillex. This resulted in 7 eggs at retrieval, 6 eggs were mature, 3 fertilized, 0 made it to blastocyst day 5. Second round of IVF we added a Lupron Flare - this resulted in 15 eggs at retrieval, 12 mature, 10 fertilized, 3 made it to blastocyst. We are now waiting until the quarantine to be over to do the transfer.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Christie Dabney)
The staff and care coordinator are amazing. My first cycle of IVF was great - my coordinator met with us and took the time to explain what was going to happen through out the cycle. They showed us how to administer stims and answered all questions. My second cycle my coordinator was less attentive and did not really explain as much as she did the first time. We were doing a new protocol so we were confused and nervous but it all worked out.

The clinic will not do a multiple embryo transfer for the health of the mom and baby.

Both cycles I did with Dr. Bedient were medicated cycles with timed intercourse. The first round we did metformin and letrozole with a trigger shot and timed intercourse. That first cycle was not successful. The second cycle, we went from 5mg of letrozole to 7.5 mg letrozole. We still took metformin and did the trigger shot. That cycle resulted in a chemical pregnancy...is very knowledgeable in the field of infertility. She was punctual and answered any questions that my husband and I had. She was kind and personable. She was also very informative with my diagnosis.
The nursing staff [at Fertility Center of Las Vegas] were punctual and knowledgeable. They were nice. They weren't personable and didn't get to know you...I felt like I was always being rushed and they'd get upset when we'd have to stop a monitoring appointment because I had a full bladder...They were really good with the first cycle and calling me with my results the day of blood draw. My second cycle, I had to call them 24 hours after my blood draw for my results. When I called, they couldn't find my results so I needed to wait until my doctor called me with the results. She called me at the end of business day to tell me that I was pregnant, but my numbers were low and I needed to do another hcg blood test. Same thing happened with this blood draw. I waited over 24 hours for them to call. I had to call them again and was told the doctor would call me back. She ended up not calling me and a sonographer I've never met with, called me tell me that it was a chemical pregnancy and I would be getting my period within a couple of days. I thought it was strange that a sonographer I haven't seen called me. I felt like I didn't matter.

In the beginning the staff called back and was very helpful. After my second treatment, I felt like I was treated like a number. It took 2 days for them to call me back with any instructions or results. I also left messages for a few people and never received any call backs.

Describe your experience with Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
I liked that they were on top of billing. Pricing was upfront and there were no hidden fees. They were extremely clean and on top of blood draws to check hormone levels. It made me sad that they didnt work with patients on payment plans or give discounts for to patients who needed to pay out of pocket because insurance didnt cover treatments.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
I spent $2500 on medicated timed intercourse and almost $500 on medication each cycle.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
What we love about Doctor Bedient is with all of the patients she has when she is speaking with you or has an appointment with you she makes you feel like the only one.... During my fibroid surgery she checked in constantly, and the plans she makes for your cycle you can tell she really has taken the time to think about it and make it personal. She explains things in a way that you can understand I would and have recommended her to friends.
The biggest weakness of this clinic [Fertility Ctr of Las Vegas] would definitely be communication. There are times when I wasn’t dealing with my coordinator that I had to reach out myself and ask where my quote was or what my next steps needed to be. There is also times when you go in for your appointment and you sign in and are waiting a very long time without updates, it’s like they forgot about you. There is also some inconsistencies where they sometimes make you feel welcome when you come in and sometimes they don’t acknowledge you.
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
My husband and I went to another fertility clinic and saw a different doctor before we got to Dr Bedient, and boy are we glad we didn’t go with anyone else. Dr Bedient is caring, attentive and she makes you feel as if you are her only patient. During my fibroid surgery she checked in constantly, and the plans she makes for your cycle you can tell she really has taken the time to think about it and make it personal. She explains things in a way that you can understand I would and have recommended her to friends.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
I would tell them that although she is busy and you have to wait a little bit to see her during your appointment it is worth it! When you finally do see her she is attentive, detail oriented and takes her time with you so you don’t feel rushed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
What we love about Doctor Bedient is with all of the patients she has when she is speaking with you or has an appointment with you she makes you feel like the only one. She came on during my appointment with my surgeon for my fibroid surgery just to give me a hug! She makes you feel like she’s truly walking this path with you and goes over everything in as much detail as you may need! She has a great bedside manner and I have already recommended her to a friend of mine even though we are done with our cycle yet I know she’s going to work hard to get us the best result!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Christie )
Our main coordinator Christie is amazing! She is very compassionate and she kept us up to date on everything and was a great communicator, if it wasn’t her it was the nurse that worked with her Katie. Both of whom I would recommend. The only person I dealt with that I felt was cold and very short when speaking with me was Rashanda. I didn’t have to interact with her much but when I did she seemed to have an attitude which was very off putting and very much the opposite of the feeling from everyone else in the office.

For strengths I would say they will take the time to explain things to you when you speak to them, but compared to the wonderful treatment you get from the nurses and doctors the front desk is in need of improvement.
Describe Carrie Bedient's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
Yes. Dr Bedient did strongly recommend that we only transfer one embryo, she took the time to explain that with our age and the number of embryos we have that she feels this will get us the most successful result. We went in originally thinking we would do 2 but we didn’t think about all of the risks and results of the egg retrieval so we respected her expertise in this area and when the time comes we will do 1 embryo.
What specific things went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
  • Failed to call with results
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
When I was preparing for my fibroid surgery my period was late and I finally reached out when it came and even though I had already had an appointment time and date, the nurse Rashanda changed it without explaining why, she also didn’t relay the change to the other staff because they called me to confirm my old appointment time and date and then said they didn’t have notes as to the change or why it was made? Thankfully things like this didn’t happen often but I felt like there was definitely a drop in communication and not enough communication with me.

She [Dr. Bedient] was a very nice woman. But we never spoke with her or saw her.. at ALL until retrieval after the consultation. My husband and I were so frustrated not being able to communicate with just her. We were constantly worried out coordinator as she was always confused about who she was talking to and my current situations we were in.... Bedient suggested I go through an aggressive protocol. We did stomach injections of follostim and menopur.
Their weakness was that they [Fertility Ctr of Las Vegas] eere always rushing, and seemed to be under staffed with how little compassion and communication we were able to receive. Their strengths was only getting me in and out quickly.... we were just a number, so we were always in and out.... $5,000 for genetic testing. $21,000 for the whole ivf procedure, and $2,000 for medications. So all in all, $28,000 to go through ivf with Dr. Bedient.
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?

We were constantly worried out coordinator as she was always confused about who she was talking to and my current situations we were in.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
You won’t even communicate with Bedient. You’ll communicate with a coordinator who doesn’t get back to you in enough time and with not enough details.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Miscommunication, no helpful direction given. As if we were on our own with our medications. Never saw Bedient unless it was for our consultation, the very end retrieval, and the end discussion of why it didn’t work out.
Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
Bedient suggested I go through an aggressive protocol. We did stomach injections of follostim and menopur. We did this until I grew enough and large enough eggs to their approval. We then did egg retrieval. I stopped all medications once we finished the retrieval for about one or two weeks? Bedients office only does frozen transfers. So five minutes before our scheduled transfer she called us to let us know our only blastocyst stopped growing cells at the rate it should have been after thanking out. She suggested we toss the blastocyst or go forward even knowing it won’t live. We went forward. I then started progesterone injections until my period came.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Christie Dabney)
Like we said, we were just a number, so we were always in and out. They always said I was growing great eggs, but at retrieval time my eggs showed that they were all very SMALL. Very misleading

Describe Carrie Bedient's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
We didn’t have a choice. She originally suggested single transfer (before we knew how many I would have been able to make) only because I have tietzi syndrome.

Dr. Bedient was nice, had a very calm demeanor. One thing i did not really like was the fact that there was one time where she had came back from working out, literally dripping in sweat, face red and can barely catch her breath and she was speaking. I felt that it was unprofessional....No treatments were done at this facility. The doctor did suggest we did femara with timed intercourse.
Just know that they [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] wont work with your schedule, you'll have to miss work. All of their blood work and ultrasounds are only done in the morning.... The billing coordinator constantly messed up. They would bill me for things I wasn't responsible for. Theres nothing good I can add because after they messed up on my blood work, I stopped going to this clinic. Theres no strengths I can add.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
The nursing staff was my least favorite. As I had stated they wont work with your schedule. On one occasion, I told Dr. Bedient that the earliest I can come for my blood work was 3pm, and she said "okay, just let the nurse know so that they can stick around." As I was making my appointment at the front they said "no you cant sorry." Second, when i went in for a vaginal ultrasound the nurse asked me "when do you need to come back?" I answered I don't know, shouldn't you know, and she went to go ask the doctor. The nurse also gave me the wrong lab test, so they actually tested me for any genetic diseases. And that blood work bill was not cheap. The nurses were no help.

We walked away from our meetings [with Dr. Carrie Bedient] knowing the success rates but thinking that pursuing IVF would be a slam dunk to conceive. She did not require that we do genetic testing until after 3 failed IVF transfers. After 2 we were very worried and requested it ourselves. After we received the results she said that she was so glad that we did it since our embryos had so many abnormalities
The clinic [Fertility Center of LV] is clean and well organized. I loved that the waiting room has snacks and drinks because sometimes you are there for long periods of time! The staff is all so friendly and helpful and oftentimes they remember you by name which adds a level of comfort. My only odd complaint is that I don't like the TV on in the waiting room, I'm nervous enough at appointments and maybe the sound soothes others but it irritates me.
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
I couldn't imagine a better doctor to have while going through this emotionally and physically exhausting journey! She puts you at ease while also making sure that you are informed each step of the way. She never made me feel rushed to ask questions and I always felt comfortable asking anything. My one complaint is that I feel that she can be overly optimistic. I think that a certain level is necessary to provide hope but I felt like the response "you are young and healthy" gave my husband and myself too much false hope. We walked away from our meetings knowing the success rates but thinking that pursuing IVF would be a slam dunk to conceive. She did not require that we do genetic testing until after 3 failed IVF transfers. After 2 we were very worried and requested it ourselves. After we received the results she said that she was so glad that we did it since our embryos had so many abnormalities. I have trusted her each step of the way (and of course none of us expected those results) but sometimes providing too much hope of success can be a double-edged sword for patients.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Go visit her! She has such a calming quality about her which will put your anxious minds at ease. Make sure to write down questions that you have beforehand. She will answer all of them, you just have to remember what you want to ask!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr. Bedient makes you feel like you are her only patient. Over the phone or in person she takes the time to answer all of your questions and makes sure that you have all of the information that you need. Her bedside manner and calming demeanor are exactly what are needed in such a sensitive field!
Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
The first treatment strategy (after all initial diagnostic testing was completed) was trying letrezol pills to induce ovulation - as my irregular cycles indicated that my body was not ovulated consistently on its own - with timed intercourse. We pursued this for 3 cycles with no success. We personally chose to skip the IUI treatment path next and instead went straight into IVF. We had the egg retrieval and instead of a fresh transfer, all 5 day blastocysts were frozen for subsequent frozen embryo transfers.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Center of Las Vegas. (Assigned nurse: Christie )
She was usually quick to respond via email with all of my questions and concerns, even after hours.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
$14,400 for the global ivf package which included the egg retrieval, anesthesia, IVF coordinator, bloodwork, ultrasounds, transfers for up to 1 year, embryo storage for 1 year.
Describe Carrie Bedient's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
Dr. Bedient strongly encouraged us to only transfer one embryo at a time to minimize the risks of carrying multiples. We had the choice either way, however.

Dr. Bedient was kind, I never felt rushed, and she remembered personal details of things we had discussed about my personal life and would ask me about them at follow up appointments. She seemed to genuinely take in interest in my health and helping me get pregnant.... I did 50 mg of Clomid, with an HCG trigger shot, and IUI 6x. I was carefully monitored via bloodwork and vaginal ultrasounds and always kept in the loop about how many mature eggs I had.
Strengths: Appointments always start on time, you are in and out quickly, the staff [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] is entirely female (except for one male Doctor but I never saw him), staff is friendly and compassionate, lots of ample parking Weaknesses: Billing/Finance department, I had several issues with the finance team, it eventually got resolved and I was reimbursed for everything I was overcharged, but it took a year for me to get my money back. I would have left the clinic and gone some where else, but my Doctor was awesome.
How was your experience with Carrie Bedient at Fertility Center of Las Vegas?
Dr Bedient is a female, which I love, when discussing sensitive issues regarding reproduction. She is also a mother so she has been through pregnancy herself. She is kind, compassionate, and always fit me into her schedule if it was an emergency. She was willing to answer any questions I had and took her time during every appointment.

Dr. Bedient is very understanding and straightforward. She always makes time to see me and reaches out to colleagues for opinions or questions if needed....She always has taken time for me and "thinks outside the box." She gives me recommendations and explains things very well....I have an Ovarian Isuffiency with a low egg reserve so she first wanted to make sure I had no underlying autoimmune issues.
Overall, the clinic seems very clean and everyone is friendly. I never had any procedures outside of ultrasound and lab work here. The receptionists here are very nice and answered a lot of questions on my initial phone call. The clinic also provided a free consultation for new patients, which I felt was helpful....Most of my stuff was billed to medical insurance because of my ovarian insufficiency and low hormone levels.

Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
I have an Ovarian Isuffiency with a low egg reserve so she first wanted to make sure I had no underlying autoimmune issues. She ordered lots of lab work and ovarian ultrasounds. She first tried cyclical hormone therapy to see if we could get follicles to grow. I took up to 6 mg of Estradiol daily for several months and 200 mg of Progrsterone hoping that we could do an IUI. Ultimately, I decided to take a break because of the side effects of that much Estrogen. I currently take a lower maintenance dose.

Describe Carrie Bedient's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Center of Las Vegas.
My age (30 at time of retrieval/transfer) was the biggest factor. Being young increased the chances of a successful cycle. Also I’ve miscarried before, so we didn’t want to try to put in too many embryos at once until we knew for sure how my body would react to carrying a baby again.

She [Dr. Carrie Bedient] was incredibly nice and considerate of my feelings when reviewing information...I felt very comfortable. The information was not easy to hear, which she recognized. Her tone was soft which was soothing. She walked me through what my next steps would be and provided a realistic picture of what to expect. What I especially appreciated was her correspondence with the billing staff to make sure that we got as much covered through my insurance as possible.

My gynecologist recommended Fertility Center of Las Vegas because she said it was the best. She mentioned that Dr.Shapiro “tells it as it is” which can sometimes be hard for those more sensitive. I do not know this first hand as I was paired with a different doctor on the team- Dr. Bedient. She was wonderful.

I did 3 retrievals and 3 frozen transfers [with Dr. Bedient]. My plan was adjusted each time to achieve a better result each time. After 2 successful transfers which ended in miscarriage, I was diagnosed with recurrent miscarriages and underwent lab work which revealed a blood clotting disorder.

Every person at this clinic [Fertility Center of Las Vegas] is kind and helpful. If they tell you they will contact you at a certain day/time, they will. They don't all use the same manner of communications, though. Some email and some call. Check each line of communication before you start chasing them down for information. The only times I did that, it was because I had not checked my email...The whole staff was attentive, honest, and helpful.

Describe the protocols Carrie Bedient used in your cycles at Fertility Center of Las Vegas and their degree of success.
I did 3 retrievals and 3 frozen transfers. My plan was adjusted each time to achieve a better result each time. After 2 successful transfers which ended in miscarriage, I was diagnosed with recurrent miscarriages and underwent lab work which revealed a blood clotting disorder. Once we figured that out, we were able to successfully transfer again and with the help of a blood thinner, I am now 18 weeks pregnant.
