Describe your experience with University of Michigan Center for Reproductive Medicine.
When you are at u of m you feel welcomed and we’ll take care of there. The wait times are short and they are always very responsive. That being said, when you are not there, it seems so distant and the communication struggles. They communicate everything through the portal, including bad news. I felt like that was impersonal. I also would have preferred to see my doctor for my appointments. I had at least 5. For the price, I am opting to travel to New York instead of come back to u of m for another cycle.
