How was your experience with David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
Dr Grainger is very busy but really took time to understand our case and explain things to us fully in our consultation and I believe he will as treatment plan changes in the future. He was kind, open and even shared personal stories of his family's infertility struggles and successes.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
Go in with an open mind. Dr Grainger was willing to let us be as aggressive as we want. I feel comfortable making changes to the game plan and empowered to make decisions for ourselves. We were never pressured into anything we aren't ready for
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
Dr Grainger really seemed to understand the individualties of us as a couple and adjusted our treatment plan individually.
Describe the protocols David Grainger used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas and their degree of success.
We have unexplained infertility. At our consultation, Dr Grainger encouraged us to be as aggressive as we like, though we are both under 35. We first did 2.5 mg Letrozole, but no IUI due to office holiday closures. Cycle 2: Letrozole 2.5 mg with IUI OF 32 million washed sperm. Cycle 3: increased dosage to 5 mg Letrozole. IUI cancelled, due to low sperm count. Referred back to urologist and can't continue treatment until cleared by urologist.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
When I have questions, I call and leave messages. They are very thorough. For our first IUI, I came in with questions and the nurse typed up the responses for me to have.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas.
Sometimes, it is frustrating to always have to leave messages and wait fora return call (as my phone doesn't have great service at work) but they take that time to confer with the doctors and make sure the information they give is accurate.
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas.
They went over our insurance and had us pay for most services upfront. The billing specialist called before the consult to let me know how much that would be ahead of time (about $250). For three IUIs, my insurance pays my side, but my husband paid $200 for the completed IUI cycle. I was billed for blood tests performed before starting meds each cycle.

I appreciated that he [Dr. David Grainger] listened, he showed compassion and he was considerate to the frustrations we had endured while under the care of another dr in the clinic. He recognised that we were not the typical couple and that the normal process was not what we needed. He answered all questions and let me vent when frustrated

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
Go in knowing information. Research the treatments, th drs personality if possible. I made that mistake and ended up with the wrong dr the first time
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas?
He didn't treat me like a process. He looked into my history and listened to me
Describe the protocols David Grainger used in your cycles at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas and their degree of success.
100 mg of femara/letrizole cd 3-7 Sonos starting cd 11 and every other day till follicles were ready Hcg trigger shot IUI two days later
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I felt like there was a lot of different protocols and what they were looking for. In a matter of 24 hours I was told 3 different things on my follicles and what they were looking for in sperm for IUI.
Describe your experience with Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas.
I love dr Grainger. I do not care for nurses as one is slightly rude and the other tells me different things every time I'm in there. The receptionists are nice and easy to work with. I do wish they would provide cloth blankets to cover up with when doing Sonos. Paper blankets aren't very comfortable
Describe the costs associated with your care under David Grainger at Center for Reproductive Medicine in Kansas.
We are out of pocket payers. So far we have spent $1500. But are waiting on the costs for Sonos still
