Dr Mansfield is incredibly warm and welcoming. I believe she is very knowledgeable and uses research to guide her practice, rather than old or unproven theories. I feel confident in her treatment recommendations. As many of us are when facing problems with reproduction and infertility, I felt I was relatively well educated and well read when I first met Dr Mansfield. She showed me kindness and patience while I asked her numerous questions related to various things I had come across. She never made me feel silly for asking her about something (hello, pineapple core!).

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr Mansfield is incredibly warm and welcoming. I believe she is very knowledgeable and uses research to guide her practice, rather than old or unproven theories. I feel confident in her treatment recommendations. As many of us are when facing problems with reproduction and infertility, I felt I was relatively well educated and well read when I first met Dr Mansfield. She showed me kindness and patience while I asked her numerous questions related to various things I had come across. She never made me feel silly for asking her about something (hello, pineapple core!). She refers to research when appropriate, tells you when she doesn't think something is useful but also doesn't find it harmful to try, and encourages you to not do things that she believes will be detrimental to your journey. When I specifically questioned Dr Mansfield about a line of treatment I felt sure I needed, she held true to her belief that our primary issue was one of egg quality. She didn't discount my feelings, but after more than a year of being under her care, it turns out she was absolutely correct about egg quality (and chromosomal errors) being a primary problem for us.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Go see her! It will be worth it!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr Mansfield is very compassionate and reassuring, while being completely honest in explaining what she believes our issues are and the hurdles we may be facing. She is straightforward and open to questions. She does an excellent job of remembering one's history. She never made me feel like she had somewhere else to be and was very patient with me when I hammered her on what I believed were immunologic components of our recurrent pregnancy loss.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
Clomid 100 mg/Timed Intercourse (2 follicles, no pregnancy) Clomid 100 mg/IUI (4 follicles, no pregnancy) Clomid 100 mg/IUI (2 follicles, no pregnancy) Decision made to move to IVF to allow PGS testing: IVF #1- Antagonist (225-300 FSH daily), Lupron trigger (high risk for OHSS) We got 18 eggs, but only 6 were mature. Three embryos cleaved and all 3 made it to blastocyst and were biopsied for PGS testing. All 3 were abnormal. IVF #2- Lupron Down Reg (450 FSH daily)- protocol was changed due to abnormally high number of immature eggs on Antagonist cycle. We got 31 eggs, 19 mature, 18 embryos, 13 blastocysts. Nine of them were biopsied for PGS and 5 of them came back normal! All embryos are frozen, and we have not attempted a transfer yet.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Brooke)
The nursing staff members are all very kind and friendly. They always take the time to answer my questions and guide me through the process. They are reassuring and supportive when required and equally excited when something good happens.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The clinic is beautiful, inviting, modern, and spacious. They are able to do HSG, SIS, and HSC procedures, along with egg retrievals and D&Cs in the office (they have an OR). Also, they run some of the lab work in house, so you can get results within a few hours. I was typically greeted by name and always with a smile. Many times, I barely sat down before they called me back. On the occasions when there was a wait, it was short. The lobby has bottled water and a coffee/tea maker you can help yourself to, along with a nice restroom and pretty views out the windows.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Dr Mansfield's costs for care were on the lower end of the ranges I found for my area and significantly less than many clinics (such as those in Colorado, California, and on the East Coast).

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield truly loves what she does and doesn't give up. We have had a couple unexpected issues pop up along the way and she handles it with ease. She comes up with a new game plan and we continue on our way. I am confident that one day soon we will have the family we have dreamt of and it will all be because of her.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Fertility treatment has so many ups and downs. Do not get discouraged if the first cycle doesn't work. Dr. Mansfield truly cares about each of her patients and will work hard to find solutions to anything that may pop up.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
She is the most caring and sincere doctor i have ever encountered. While our outcome of miscarriage was not what we were expecting, she showed us deep sympathy during this time. She hugged me and reassured me that we would figure this out.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
IVF cycle 1- Lupron, Follistim, Menopur- standard doses; poor responder and poor egg quality. Only had 1 , 5 day old embryo make it to freeze. IVF cycle 2- DHEA and CoQ10 for three months, started with testosterone priming for three weeks, then did a mini-lupron flare cycle with HGH. I had a much better response and had 7, 5 day old embryos frozen. FET-Progesterone injections and estrace pills until lining was adequate, transferred two embryos and received our very first positive pregnancy results. Unfortunately i miscarried at 6 weeks. We are waiting for the fetal tissue results to come back to determine our next step.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Jen, Leah and Francis have all gone above and beyond helping us with anything we needed. They show compassion in ways i didn't even think was possible. They share in your victories and were crushed with our miscarriage. They truly care about their patients.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Very quick response time for appointments or questions. Try their best to work with your schedule. No weaknesses, we are very pleased with them and so glad we found them.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
You can tell the first time you speak with Dr Mansfield that she is knowledgeable in her field and loves what she does. She is an excellent communicator and is always friendly and answers every question with detail. My husband and I have been through three stimulation cycles with timed intercourse, one fresh cycle IVF, and have begun a frozen cycle IVF that is not yet completed. I can't imagine going through this process with another doctor. Anytime we encountered a road block in our treatments, she took the time to sit down with us and re-group and change course if needed. She gives us hope but also lets us know the chances and what could go wrong. My husband and I feel very comfortable with Dr Mansfield and her staff.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Don't hesitate to make an appointment to sit down and talk with her. She will likely order a few basic tests to give her a rundown of your reproductive health. You will get a better idea of what treatments you may need and you will have more peace of mind. Wondering about your infertility can give you so much stress, so it's better to find out why. Dr Mansfield will give you hope and cheer you on in your journey.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield and her staff have a very patient-centered approach. I have never felt like just a number in their office. The receptionists, nurses and doctor all know me by name and take the necessary time to explain procedures and answer questions. They make you feel comfortable and celebrate good news with you, but also feel your pain when you get bad news.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Leah Offerdahl)
Leah was the nurse we dealt with most often and she is amazing. She seems to know as much about infertility and treatments as much as Dr. Manfield does. She can answer most all of our questions and was very knowledgeable about our medication and costs as well.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Its hard to describe any weaknesses that this clinic has. They are good at everything. They offer all of their testing, blood work, ultrasounds, and procedures in their office. I even had my egg retrieval and transfer in office. The staff is so kind and caring and work together so well.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Monitoring appointments for me usually begin by being brought back for blood work. While I am getting blood drawn, they usually are preparing the ultrasound room. They work as a well oiled machine and I am never in the office for more than 30 min.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The cost of our care was not covered by our insurance so we had to pay out of pocket for most medications and treatments.
Describe Christine Mansfield's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Dr Mansfield recommended transferring 2 embryos for us. She left it up to us to decide if we wanted to do 1 or 2. I don't think she would transfer more than two. My husband is 42 and I am 34, so we elected to do 2 embryos to up our chances of pregnancy.

Dr. Mansfield always knew my name and my husband's name. She cared about how I was feeling and how things were going.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
IVF 1- Antagonist Protocol, we kept having to increase my doses to the maximum amount in order to get the follicles growing. 4 eggs were retrieved, 3 were mature, 2 fertilized, and 2 transferred on Day 3. No pregnancy. IVF 2- Microdose Flare Protocol, still maximum dosage of drugs to get follicles growing. Only 2 eggs retrieved, 1 fertilized, and 1 transferred on Day 3. Positive pregnancy, however ended with miscarriage. IVF 3- Microdose Flare Protocol with Testosterone injections prior. This saw the best and most follicles growing out of all my cycles and I had the best estrogen numbers. But only 2 eggs retrieved, both were mature and fertilized via ICSI, only 1 divided properly for Day 3 transfer. No pregnancy.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Jennifer Sturgeon)
Jennifer took the time to show me everything I needed to know regarding giving myself injections. She also made sure I was emotionally prepared and that I had all the resources I needed when things weren't going as planned or as we had hoped. She worked with me when I was getting medications from several different pharmacies to save on my costs.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The staff here is super friendly and you can tell they love what they do. My appointments during IVF were on time and very quick so I could get back to work. They have a phlebotomist on site who is super gentle and polite.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
My IVF cycles ranged from $4500 to $6000, not including medications. Some tests (HSG) that were preformed prior to the first IVF costs approximately $500-$600. Some further lab work not covered by insurance cost about $350.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield and her staff were always friendly. They seemed to be always present. There were times were the Doctor would talk really fast but would gladly repeat when asked.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
Once we decided to do IUI we paid in advanced. Before the IUI I took clomid (I believe) starting second day of menstrual cycle. I also ordered a trigger shot in case I needed it before ovulation. After the 8th day they monitored by ovulation. Since I might ovulate over the weekend, she has someone on call once I got a positive ovulation test kit. Once I got a positive I called "on call" number and a NP was able to schedule my IUI for a Monday. After IUI they scheduled a free pregnancy test. The trigger shot was never used because she monitored hormone level through blood work.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Always friendly and very kind.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
I liked that in every visit the wait time was no longer than 10 minutes. The amenities are great (e.g. Water, coffee etc). Staff is friendly and well organized. The clinic also has great lab equipments and personal. For example, with previous doctor I had to go to a separate location to get HSG testing. They also get your blood tests done on site, they don't have to send it out to las and wait for results. A weakness would be, perhaps not having another doctor on site in case Dr. Mansfield gets called to an emergency. On one of the check ups an NP had to check my ovulation process and it was not the same as getting the care from her.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Our IUI procedure costed 1,000, not including medication. With my insurance a visit is $30. Since we went to see Dr. Mansfield for a second opinion, the consult was free.

Be ready to get attached to her. Then when you get pregnant you leave he office to regular OB and miss her.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield talked to me in a way that no other provider has talked to me. The questions that I felt were stupid were explained in a kind manner by Dr Mansfield. She really became a friend during this hard process.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
I have stage four endo. She first did a laparoscopy and removed my left tube. We both knew I would need ivf. We approached stiming in a aggressive manner because my endo was so bad and my egg reserve was dimished because of it. I don't recall the medications. It was a lot of pokes but all very worth it.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Frances and Brooke )
Frances was so amazing. Very kind and did a good job at her profession. Brooke was ok. Not very personable. After my first failed cycle I felt that Brooke stopped caring. For example I wanted to see dr Mansfield for a follow up appointment and was scheduled like two weeks from the fail which made me sad considering I had been seeing her everyday. The new nurse Jennifer I believe her name was, was very kind. She made me feel at ease during my second transfer.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Victoria is amazing. As well as the financial counselor. They all work as a team. And dr jui I think his name is was very friendly. Weakness I would say is to do a bit more of a follow up on failed cycles. That is when the patient needs support the most.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
I don't really remember. Luckily my insurance at that time covered just about everything.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Prior to seeing Dr. Mansfield I had 2 failed IUI's and 1 failed IVF with another doctor. After seeing Doctor Mansfield and hearing all of her recommendations for testing prior to treatment, everything seemed to come together. My thyroid levels were off, my egg reserve was low and I was a carrier for a genetic condition that could both cause my diminished ovarian reserve and affect my children. None of this had been diagnosed with the previous Doctor. Due to these results they were able to dictate my plan of care much more accurately. I was placed on a much higher dose of medication for my IVF cycle then I was for my first and I had a much better outcome. I am currently pregnant and I owe it all to Dr. Mansfield, and her team!

Dr. Mansfield was very compassionate to our situation and recommended all the appropriate testing needed to accurately decide what the next step was for us.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
IVF Microdose Flare protocol 300units Gonal F once daily 150units Menopur once daily 10unit Microdose Lupron twice daily Needed to be on a higher dose due to low AMH and low antral follicle count. Produced 5 eggs, had 3 Mature, 3 fertilized and 2 progressed to day 5 Blastocyst.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Brooke)
The staff is very knowledgable and compassionate. I always felt like they genuinely cared about me and my outcome.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The clinic is very welcoming! It has a clean and relaxing feel to it. They are thoughtful and do not display pictures of children all over their clinic like others do.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
They are always willing to work around my schedule and were very flexible.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
I do not have coverage for fertility treatments, so I paid out of pocket for my treatments. They are reasonably priced and come in way below most clinic across the country.

We did 5 days of 100mg Clomid, follicle checks, followed by a trigger shot at the right time, then IUIs. We are on our second one, first was a failure. Results for the second one are still undetermined. Both cycles were the same treatment.

I felt like talking with Dr. Mansfield was like talking with a friend. She provided me with comfort and information that I needed to know. When bad news came, she started our appointments with a hug and genuine caring. She educated us on options and the likely course of treatments.

The nurses are great, but the office is not run very well all the time. Often there is some miscommunication, disorganization. You often need to remind them of things and stay on top of your own care.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?

Dr Mansfield, the nurses and all staff truly care about me. The celebrated my good news and cry with me with the sad news. They are truly family.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
My first cycle was a surprising fail. I didn't respond well to the drugs despite being 26, supper health, and normal test results. My first cycle, I had no embryos make it to transfer. After my meeting she said we are not going to be conservative and we are going to throw everything she has at me to achieve my goal. I primed with testosterone for 4 weeks then did a flair cycle with HGH. It resulted is 12 eggs and 4 5 day embryos. We transferred 2 and got pregnant with one! Sadly I miscarries at 9 weeks. We tested the fetal tissue and found out it was a chromosome problem. I am getting ready to start another stem cycle with the same plan. This time though we will be testing all the embryos for chromosome abnormalities and doing a frozen transfer.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Save up money first so you don't have to stop getting treatments before your desired outcome.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield and her staff are incredibly warm, caring, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
We began with a progesterone induced period and then Clomid (2 tablets) to stimulate my ovaries as I had not been cycling on my own for 2 years. Two eggs developed and we did an IUI procedure after an HCG trigger shot. This resulted in a negative pregnancy test. We tried Clomid again but my ovaries did not respond this time. We switched to Femara, and again, my ovaries did not respond, so we were unable to attempt an IUI. Dr. Mansfield advised against trying IUI with injectables, as my ovarian reserve is very high, I have many follicles on my ovaries because of PCOS and she thought that the injectables would overstimulate my ovaries. She feels that IVF is our only option.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Frances Lazo)
The entire staff at Dr. Mansfield's office is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.

My initial testing was covered by my insurance. The IUI was $900 plus meds.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
She is very optimistic, but never really answers questions. She just tells you what you are going to do next like a cheerleader. She would say to get dressed and she would see me in a minute, but never come back. I would be left with questions and no answers from her staff.

Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles at Arizona Reproductive Institute and their degree of success.
Clomid and a trigger shot, very basic. However after one unsuccessful round she was pushing us straight to IVF. She never told me I had a narrow cervix and needed help with dialation for sperm to get in, or even discussed IUI
Describe your experience with your nurse at Arizona Reproductive Institute. (Assigned nurse: Florence)
She was always running around overwhelmed. They must be under staffed. They never knew who I was. Many times prescriptions were forgotten to be sent.
Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The only good thing about the clinic is Victoria up front. Everyone is like a robot- an unhappy robot. Appointment times are never on time, and as soon as you see the doctor you are immediately rushed into a room to talk $. They push IVF from the second you walk in. They are a machine churning out pregnancies for money. You are not important. They want to get you in and out- so they just over push IVF.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
$300/ visist to her, $175/ ultrasound, $7500 IVF, $900 IUI

Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Everyone here is very kind and friendly. The front desk staff are sometimes a little too friendly and casual, expecting you to know whether you're supposed to sit and wait or sign in or go right back for your bloodwork. I had to ask a few times, "What do I do now?" But other than that, everyone was great, the nursing staff and Dr. Mansfield were amazing, and I'd definitely recommend this clinic.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute.
7800 for the procedure (with discount based on income), and about 4200 for the medications.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield was generally friendly and seemed competent. I did however feel a little blindsided by one of my tests (the HCG). I didn't know that it was going to be so painful, and afterwards, I didn't know that it was not a cause for concern that I was bleeding. I also got bad news during the test (tubal blockage), and really wanted her to stay and explain what that meant. To me, it felt like she rushed out without realizing how upsetting and confusing the news was to me. I also got a second opinion that was a very different diagnosis and prescribed treatment. Given that I have since gotten pregnant with minimal intervention, it seems like the her recommendation (removing one or possible 2 tubes) was more aggressive than necessary.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Get a second opinion.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.

Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
One thing that was a little bit concerning was a lack of coordination between different parts of the organization My husband had to give blood twice for the same test, which was never run.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
I ddint feel an urgency to help us with our inability to get pregnant. After 2 failed iui she wanted to talk about ivf. That's a big jump. I am not in full understanding why we aren't getting pregnant and what I can do or take for myself for better results.

You need to call and follow up to get all the information you need. The office is way too busy and sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Christine Mansfield at Arizona Reproductive Institute?
Dr. Mansfield has excellent bedside manner however I felt shr was always in a hurry to get yo the next patient. Our first IUI she left the room and said she would meet us outside, we came.out and waited and a staff member let us know she was already with a new patient and we could leave. It would have been nice to have a conclusion to our appointment.

I had to call many time to get results. They weren't often called in on a timely manner.
