Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Care of Arizona.
It was easy to schedule a consultation and I don’t believe it took too long to have my phone consult (I live in another state). My care was assigned to one nurse which I liked. The one thing I didn’t like was that they don’t have a patient portal to upload documents into. Instead you have to email them which isn’t as secure.

The phone consult was $300.

We transferred one embryo for our first IVF cycle that ended in a chemical pregnancy and decided to transfer 2 our next round of IVF. Dr.Larsen let us know of the risks involved but respected our wishes . But he strongly advised against transferring 3 or more in our case...His techniques during physical examinations made me feel comfortable and at ease. He did not run tests that he felt were not needed and tried to start with low dosage infertility drugs and see how my body handled that and responded before prescribing more meds and higher dosages.
The hours [at Advanced Fertility Care of Arizona] are amazing but because where are 3 different locations it was possible many times that visit could be in different location . Depending on the day of your appointment each location was different but the staff remained the same which was very comforting...If you have any questions don’t hesitate to call even if you think the question is minimal he will always or tries to always call back and answer your questions with detail and sincerity

Dr. Larsen was a great doctor. He explained all potential courses of treatment with great detail.
