How was your experience with Deborah Smith at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center?
I would recommend Rocky Mountain Fertility Center to anyone going through infertility. Dr. Smith and her staff are professional, knowledgeable, and supportive throughout the entire IVF process. I did not do my full IVF treatment from Colorado, because I live in South Dakota, so I did not see Dr. Smith as much, but Angela, my coordinator was super helpful and supportive and if I ever needed to talk with Dr.Smith, I could call her on her personal phone and she would answer any questions I had. It is hard to do IVF from another state, but even though I still felt valued.

Describe the protocols Deborah Smith used in your cycles at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I lost both of my fallopian tubes so IVF is my only option. I had a very easy IVF protocol compared to some. I did not have to take as many injections or pills, but they still had me doing acupuncture, along with all the testing to help them find the best time to transfer embryos. The team was very hopeful that I would get pregnant the first round, but unfortunately that did not happen for me.
