We’ve been with Dr Puthoff for over two years and we feel like he is as committed to the goal as we are. He seems invested in our family and has been wonderful to us from day one...We did numerous cycles of Letrozole, Letrozole plus trigger shot when I didn’t ovulate; Letrozole plus clomid plus trigger shot for better chance of success. Finally we took his advice and did injectable gonadatropins plus trigger shot (Estrace, progesterone, preseed, etc.) and after three years of infertility, finally became pregnant for the first time.
The clinic [Mercy Clinic Fertility Services] is well organized, clean, professionally run. They are very busy and have a full book of patients. They have a clear order of operations so sometimes I become frustrated when I don’t hear back immediately, but they never forget to call after their last patient...Everyone on Dr. Puthoffs team is amazing. I look forward to seeing them all!...Cost have been very reasonable. All procedures, scans and bloodwork have been sent to insurance. The medication is not covered by insurance and he always provided info on alternatives. The most expensive cycle was about $1500.

How was your experience with Gavin Puthoff at Mercy Clinic Fertility Services?
Dr Puthoff is an expert doctor and surgeon. He has earned my trust over and over again. We feel safe and confident in his care. We could not be more grateful to have found him, especially after having so many horrible experiences with doctors. He’s one of a kind.

Get on his waiting list, start charting right away. That way you can begin treatment immediately. Be patient. Dr Puthoff strives to understand why you body is behaving the way it is; that leads to more successful results but does take some trial and error.

He [Dr. Gavin Puthoff] is Very empathetic. I feel very important and I love his approach with NapPro technology. Never pushy and gave me a more thorough work than I have ever had. He treated my husband as an individual instead of going through me whic made my husband feel more apart of this journey... His goal is to avoid IUI and IVF and actually fix the underlying problem so conception can happen naturally!... He approaches from a medical standpoint so everything was covered by insurance (andmy insirance doesn’t cover fertility treatment)
[Mercy Fertility Services is] Absolutely fantastic. They are extremely organized and I always left knowing the plan. Everyone from the front desk to my US tech was on the same page and knew the plan of care for me. The environment is very relaxed and empathetic.... [the nurses are] Very knowledgeable and reassuring. Made me feel important. Always got back to me with answers promptly. Called my husband with his results, instead of calling me, which made him feel included
