Dr. Broadwell is always willing to listen, adjust treatment if its not working and wants you to be completely informed...For our second cycle, we kept the same treatment plan and only ended up with 1 follicle and a very low lining. For our third cycle we upped the Clomid to 150mg...She was always nice, caring and looking our for best interest. I have bad anxiety and depression and tend to ask a lot of questions. They were always answered fully and I never felt like I was bothering her.
Generations is fantastic! We have been going there for about six months now (at least 2-4 times per month) and never had a bad experience. They even come out and apologized for being 15 minutes behind. (due an issue with a patient.) They let you cry and be angry, but always want to help you have a baby...I have bad anxiety and depression and tend to ask a lot of questions. They were always answered fully and I never felt like I was bothering her.

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
After completing our HSG and discovering that I had a very low AMH level, our course of treatment was IUI. We started on 100mg of Clomid and had a good response. Unfortunately that cycle did not end in a pregnancy. For our second cycle, we kept the same treatment plan and only ended up with 1 follicle and a very low lining. For our third cycle we upped the Clomid to 150mg and it was ROUGH. I felt horrible, hot flashes, night sweats, moody-ness and was so nauseated. We were able to get three follicles and a decent lining, but again ended in a negative pregnancy test. The fourth round was better, we switched to Letrozel and had a great response! We had FOUR big fluffy follicles and a great lining. We usually do not trigger same day, but needed to this time. There was less then 24 hours between our trigger and IUI. We think this may have been the reason that the IUI was not successful. We are currently in our TTW for cycle #5. We kept the same treatment as cycle four, but only had one follicle and a decent lining. (over 7mm)
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals. (Assigned nurse: Vicki Slager- Neary)
We worked more with Vicki then anyone else at our clinic. I can never say enough great things about her. She is compassionate, caring, a great listener, always makes you feel comfortable and wants the best for all of her patients.

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We decided to do a hysterscope to see how my ovaries look and to check on the cyst that I have had for years! By doing that, it resulted in surgery to remove a few polyps and the cyst, they found that I actually had endometroisis. This surgery probably saved lots of heartbreak and by not doing it years ago (because no other fertility suggested it) created lots of heartbreak. We have also found out that my AMH level is low, so with my age also, we decided to do donor egg. My first round of treatments actually was cancelled because my estrogen levels were off and I had fluid in the cavity area where implantation would happen. I am now on the second round. Hoping all goes well!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
We had costs for my surgery (which insurance covered the most). Costs for consultation and general workup, donor egg ($16,000), cost for sending sperm in container to donor egg facility, cost for sperm collection, medication, monthly cost for clinic to store embryos, cost from clinic ($8,000) to prepare embryo for transfer, two hystroscopes ($1,200 each). All out of pocket.

How was your experience with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Her approach is very grounded in science, and she appears to keep up with the latest developments. She does not seem keen to jump on board with new approaches unless there is sound science behind them. She manages to be both caring/compassionate and straight-forward. She did not volunteer a lot of commentary beyond the recommended next steps, but she was open to questions and always took them seriously and responded clearly.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Write down your questions and bring them with you, so you don't forget them while meeting with her, and don't be afraid to ask them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
She seemed happy to answer questions. She remembered what my husband and I do for work. She has a caring demeanor. She seemed concerned about my comfort during procedures.
Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
As background, I had surgery for stage 2 endometriosis and I have lowish AMH (0.6-0.9). I started with 4-6 weeks of birth control. Once my cycle started, I was on micro-dose Lupron (10 units twice a day), Follistim (300 units), and Menapur (150 units). I believe the doses were fairly high due to my lower AMH and follical count. My first cycle I had 8 eggs retrieved, had a fresh transfer with a day 5 embryo, no embryos to freeze, and a negative test. Since Dr. Broadwell was happy with my egg response in the first cycle considering my AMH and AFC, there was no change to my medications or dosage for my second cycle, but I did take NeoQ10 for 5 months leading up to it. The NeoQ10 was mentioned by Dr. Broadwell as an option - neither strongly encouraged or discouraged. Second cycle had 17 eggs retrieved, fresh transfer with a day 5 embryo, 3 embryos frozen on day 6, and a positive pregnancy test.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
All my interactions were positive. They were very quick to respond. I liked that they had an online message system available, so I could message questions in rather than call. The IVF coordinator was very patient in helping me transfer my prescriptions among pharmacies to help me with insurance coverage. The materials they provided were easy to understand.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Fortunately we had some insurance help, so it was hard to parse out the original clinic charges with the after-insurance charges, but in general the charges seemed in-line with the estimates on their website.
Describe Christina Broadwell's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
She included us in the decision but ultimately recommended single embryo transfer to us for both cycles. The pros/cons were discussed.

Dr. Broadwell is caring and explains the process well. She balanced her assessment with an explanation of the science which was exactly what I needed. She is reassuring and put me at ease.... As far as I can tell, Dr. Broadwell work in a very close partnership with the NP on her team.... I have completed 1 round of IUI with 5mg of letrozole and an ovadrel shot. My second round is being adjusted to 7.5 mg of letrozole since I was given an extra dose after imaging and before my ovadrel injection. I require progesterone before each cycle to stimulate my period in addition to the cycle meds.

How was your experience with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
As far as I can tell, Dr. Broadwell work in a very close partnership with the NP on her team. It’s not totally clear to me whether I’m Dr. Broadwell’s patient or Vickie’s patient. As far as my other doctors are concerned, I’m Dr. Broadwell’s patient and even as far as Generations staff, it’s sometimes confusing. I think Vickie is great and I have always been able to be seen when needed so their practice style works for me. Dr. Broadwell has been very warm and caring through this process. It is incredibly stressful and she’s been able to put be at ease equally in the procedure room and consult room.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Whoever you schedule your assessment with will be the primary provider of your care. Dr. Broadwell takes longer to get into but that may be worth it to you to ensure she is undoubtedly managing your care as opposed to providing consults as needed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Dr. Broadwell is caring and explains the process well. She balanced her assessment with an explanation of the science which was exactly what I needed. She is reassuring and put me at ease.

I have completed 1 round of IUI with 5mg of letrozole and an ovadrel shot. My second round is being adjusted to 7.5 mg of letrozole since I was given an extra dose after imaging and before my ovadrel injection. I require progesterone before each cycle to stimulate my period in addition to the cycle meds. There was one ultrasound before insemination but I had the option for a second because my eggs weren’t totally ready. I declined the second ultrasound. Prior to the IUI cycle, Dr. Broadwell performed a hysterogram which resulted in a polypectomy. This was a strongly recommended course of treatment before beginning IUI which I completed.

The nursing staff appears to cross cover the practice so I’ve met or spoken to many of them. Christy, RN has been so helpful. Whenever I have a question about the next step in the process she is always available, helpful, and caring.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Several of my visits were billed as office visits and I was only responsible for my copay. The HSG was initially going to be full price but after finding polyps it was billed as diagnostic instead of screening which allowed my insurance to cover most of the cost. For the IUI with imaging, I paid $750. I also paid an additional $125 dollars for the medications.

Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
We had previously done 3 medicated cycles with Clomid and Letrozole at a previous clinic. We switched providers due to insurance and Generations was so accommodating to continuing the same protocol. We moved on to IUI x3 rounds with Letrozole, estrogen supplement, and progesterone supplement. We have unexplained infertility and have been trying to conceive for 2 years
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I didn’t have to meet with the nursing staff that often, but the time when I called to inform them of the start of my cycle or any questions, they were responsive and considerate of needing to move to the next step.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The facility is brand new and up to date which is reassuring, knowing that I am getting the best care possible.

We live in Illinois and it is a 2 hr drive for each office appointment.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Our insurance covers a lifetime max of $10,000 and 50% of all fertility related needs. We currently have paid for nothing due to insurance denying claims and waiting for them all to be reviewed.

We were able to see Dr. Broadwell at every appointment. She remembered our names and faces without looking in the chart. She also remembered specifics about both myself and my husband which made us feel less like a number... She is very knowledgeable, but talks to you in a way that you can understand what she is saying.... reach out to her if you have any questions. She always has a speedy response.... For my FET. We used Lupron (started with 10ml and reduced to 5ml)
The clinic [Generations & U of Wisconsin Hospitals] is very easy to get to and is very clean. The online "my chart" website is extremely helpful. Only down side is there is no bathroom directly connected to the rooms where transfers and major ultrasounds are done.... The nurses seem to be very knowledgeable and compassionate as well. Many of them exhibit the same great qualities as Dr. Broadwell. They are also very quick with responses if you reach out to them with a question.

For my FET. We used Lupron (started with 10ml and reduced to 5ml), estradiol patches (started with one and moved up to 4 at a time), and progesterone in oil (1cc). At this point, I have had a positive pregnancy test, just waiting to go in for the first ultrasound. My previous doctor/FET had me using estradiol pills instead of patches, I prefer the patches!

Describe Christina Broadwell's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
With a unicornuate uterus (about half the size of a "normal" uterus) it was highly recommended and strongly encouraged that we only transfer one embryo at a time. We were allowed to make the decision for ourselves. After we were provided all the information necessary to make that decision, we agreed to transfer only one embryo.

We received conflicting information about the significance of my husband's DNA fragmentation results; the urologist at the same clinic ordered the test and after it came back high, told us our only chance was to do IVF with ICSI. Dr. Broadwell was not concerned about the DNA frag results and told us IUI was still an option for us. I asked about this conflicting information several times, but did not receive a satisfactory reason for the inconsistent information.
The nurses at Generation are awesome! I spent more time talking with them than Dr. Broadwell and they were all very compassionate. Unfortunately, they had to relay my questions back and forth with Dr. Broadwell, since I could never speak with her over the phone, and the nurses obviously couldn't answer questions regarding next steps in my treatment plan. Every nurse I met at Generations we very kind, compassionate, and great about following up with me.

How was your experience with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
She was the nicest doctor at Generations, but I didn't feel like I got personal attention from her, I always had to communicate with her via the nurses and often received conflicting information. We scheduled a one-on-one consult to discuss our failed IUI's and other possible testing we could have done but she didn't seem interested in getting us answers, only pushing us to do IVF. I felt like she ignored my husband's high DNA fragmentation test results, and didn't give us any recommendations as to how we could improve his sperm quality. We asked about alternatives to IVF, like low stimulation cycles (mini IVF), and only fertilizing 1 egg at a time but she said they don't do that. We ultimately decided to leave the clinic after I was put on a medication that ended up suppressing my ovulation and messing up my cycle, wasting us a lot of money, time and stress. I just didn't feel like I got a personalized treatment plan.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Make sure you read up on all your options, and also the risk factors of various treatments they might recommend; you won't get any information from her if you don't ask and probe.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
I felt like they had a standard set of testing they do, regardless of history or situation. I felt like they were more focused on pushing me through the standard treatment (IUI then IVF) instead of trying to figure out why we weren't having success.
Describe the protocols Christina Broadwell used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
I had 5 cycles of letrozole prior to IUI. The first 3 cycles I was it cycle days 3-7, and had 1 mature follicle. Dr. Broadwell increased the length of of the medication to cycle day 2-8, and the next 2 cycles I had 2 mature follicles. She had me trigger with ovidrel each cycle as well. Unfortunately none of those IUI's worked. Dr. Broadwell wanted us to move on to an injectable IUI cycle, with the goal of producing more follicles, but we were very uncomfortable with the idea of having more than 2 follicles, and the risk of high order multiples. Dr. Broadwell seemed less concerned about this, calling it a calculated risk. Since our main diagnosis is MFI, we finally convinced her to try back to back IUI's (2 IUI's 1 day apart in the same cycle). Unfortunately, it did not work. The 6th and last cycle we tried, Dr. Broadwell added estrace to my protocol, but didn't explain why. I finally determined that it was to thicken my uterine lining, but I was never told that my lining was thin during the previous cycles. Unfortunately, the estrace suppressed my follicle growth, and after 2 ultrasounds my cycle was cancelled, and we were told to try timed intercourse. I wasn't told whether I should stop the estrace, I had to call and ask about that. Shortly after stopping I had several days of spotting, and now my cycle has been irregular. No one told me this could be a possible risk of going on estrace, so I was very upset, as I have normally had very regular cycles.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses at Generation are awesome! I spent more time talking with them than Dr. Broadwell and they were all very compassionate. Unfortunately, they had to relay my questions back and forth with Dr. Broadwell, since I could never speak with her over the phone, and the nurses obviously couldn't answer questions regarding next steps in my treatment plan. Every nurse I met at Generations we very kind, compassionate, and great about following up with me.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
It's a nice clinic overall, very clean, organized and designed to feel calming. I didn't like that there were often pregnant women or women with children in the waiting room with me; it felt like everyone was having success except us. The clinic was good about communicating cost and was familiar with my insurance (and what it didn't cover) but I discovered that they are a bit on the high side of IF pricing. I also felt like a number, and was just being pushed through the standard protocol. The clinic seems to focus mostly on IVF.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
IUI (1 ultrasound + sperm processing and IUI) $750ish per cycle (not including meds... meds were about $160 for letrozole and ovidrel from costco)
Describe Christina Broadwell's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Dr. Broadwell prefers single embryo transfer (though we never did IVF)

Dr. Brodwell is very friendly, bubbly, person and easy to talk to. She is very personable and will listen and answer all your questions. I believe it is a lot easier to connect and communicate with a female regarding fertility issues.... In our case due to my genetic inversion during IVF cycle I was on pretty high dose of hormones to produce the biggest amount of eggs possible.... The Dr. doesn't believe in any help from additional medication like Q10 to help increase success rare and boost quality and quantity of eggs.
The clinic [Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] has easy access and is located in a quite, separated part of town. The clinic is fairly small and I wish the waiting room could be a little bigger. The meeting rooms with doctor could be bigger as well. The Ultrasound rooms are fully equipped and spacious.... The nursing staff most of the time was very professional and skilled for the job.... The IVF Cycle was 13,500 plus cost of drugs which was between 4000-6000 and NGS genetic testing 2400.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
To ask for numbers not percentages regarding success rates of ivf cycles and embryo transfers. It will create a lot better picture of the possible outcome
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christina Broadwell at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
The Dr. was always very friendly and personable to us and calling us by name. We were always greeted very warmly and welcoming by all the stuff members. The doctor was always very optimistic and smiling. I am overall satisfied with care expect the fact that with our genetic situation and me being a carrier of inversion on chromosome we were giving optimistic not realistic numbers regarding our chances of success. The Dr. doesn't believe in any help from additional medication like Q10 to help increase success rare and boost quality and quantity of eggs. The clinic is great and has a big potential but with our situation maybe it is just a lot harder to conceive with IVF.

While Dr Broadwell was great about explaining what was going to happen, I wasn't always sure about the why, especially as we got close to egg retrieval time as we watched my estrogen levels got higher and higher. Deciding when to trigger was the only part of my treatment that seems to be a mystery to me. Otherwise, I always felt like I knew what was happening, although fertility treatments in general aren't for the faint of hear, I think we must do our own research so we know what questions to ask.
$60,000! Whew! (But that also includes the separate costs of drugs and donor sperm) Without those extra costs: 5 IUIs approx. $639 each = 3195 3 IVF cycles $10,800- $12,800 each= $36,000...The clinic [Generations Fertility] feels like a really safe space. It is quiet and contemplative, almost spa like. I never felt like it was a business (even though it obviously is.)

By the third IVF Cycle, I really felt like we were in this project together. She listened to what I had to say about how I thought my treatment was going, and she adjusted accordingly.

She has AMAZING bedside manner. During any appointment or procedure thus far she talks to us like we are humans. She breaks the medicine down in to verbiage we can understand. I can only imagine she is going to continue to do such throughout the rest of our process.... Never once did they push our concerns to the side. Dr. Broadwell has a great personality along with a fabulous bed side manner. She knows when it’s time to crack a joke and when it’s time to be concerned and considerate.
From the moment we walked in to Generations we knew they were going to help get us answers. Never once did they push our concerns to the side.... The clinic is easy to work with. If you call with a question if the receptionist does not know the answer they will always get the correct person involved to get the answer. Our test results were always quick and accurate. The results were explained to us, along with all of our options.

She [Dr. Christina Broadwell] was always willing to answer my questions fully. I had a lot of them as I was no stranger to the fertility family. I was wanting to try different approaches and she was willing to try them. The result ended up in 3 beautiful babies!...There were so many [protocols] ! I tried oral and hybrid cycles. The hybrid cycles were the ones that ended up with 2 babies under Christina Broadwells care.
Some of them [nurses at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] were very personable and others not so much. Some of the nurses were not interested in hearing that I ovulate early and said that isn't protocol. I had to have them get the doctor to talk to, to get my plan changed...you don't always see your doctor nor do you always see the same nurses... I tried oral and hybrid cycles. The hybrid cycles were the ones that ended up with 2 babies under Christina Broadwells care.

They should definitely ask questions and educate themselves. You are your best advocate. The doctors are there to facilitate, but only you know your body.

[Dr. Broadwell is] Very nice and understanding, but after speaking with others with one blocked tube, I'm not sure that IUI was ever going to be beneficial to me. I wish they [Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals] were more realistic about the odds with me. I feel like they should have pushed more towards IVF so we didn't waste money we could have spent on that on the IUIs. ... Letrozole CD 3-7, ultrasound on CD10 or 12, trigger shot on night of CD12, IUI morning of CD14.
Generations was great. One improvement that could be made is availability to set up the initial consult. It took them almost a month to get us in. Everyone was very compassionate and seemed to know what they were doing, but I do wish they could have given us a better idea of chances of conception using IUI with only one tube. I don't think it was realistic that using that route was going to be successful. I also wish this clinic offered INVOcell.
