I saw Dr. Cottrell of IVF Michigan. I really liked her, but I feel as if I am having to fight very hard for what tests & procedures that I feel would be beneficial to know. I understand that they see patients like me every day, but I would love to feel as if I am being treated on my specific issues & not just as another person with reoccurring loss.... I feel as if I was being treated out of a textbook & not patient based. I had to fight for what I believed in.

Describe your experience with IVF Michigan.
I don’t think there is a particular weakness of this clinic. I just think a new patient needs to understand that this process is normally not quick & it does require that you need to be an advocate for yourself. This is a process where you need to do your research & understand your own medical history.

I had a lot of bills & do remember the costs at all.

She [Dr. Cottrell] was very personable and easy to talk to, but we felt very pressured into IVF. We have unexplained infertility and were interested in more testing and looking for answers, but her responses always came back to IVF only. We understand the odds are better with IVF, but didn’t have the money to do it. I asked about doing IUI which she agreed to, but I felt she was somewhat disappointed we didn’t jump right to IVF like she suggested.

How was your experience with Hanh Cottrell at IVF Michigan?
Although young, she seemed very knowledgeable. She was very personable and easy to talk to, but we felt very pressured into IVF. We have unexplained infertility and were interested in more testing and looking for answers, but her responses always came back to IVF only.

Be your own advocate for the treatment you want if it is not straight to IVF.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Hanh Cottrell at IVF Michigan?
Our initial consultation felt like a sales pitch for IVF.
Describe the protocols Hanh Cottrell used in your cycles at IVF Michigan and their degree of success.
We completed and IUI with ultrasound and bloodwork day 2, 5mg Femara days 3-7, menopur 75 on day 8, ultrasound day 12, trigger shot and IUI 36 hours later.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I was very impressed with the nursing staff. They were very friendly and informative. Anytime I called or emailed, I would get a response within hours.
Describe your experience with IVF Michigan.
The office was clean and nicely decorated. I never had to wait very long for any appointments. My only complaint is there is a door between the waiting room and treatment area that does not do the best job blocking out noise. While waiting, I could hear everything other patients and the drs and nurses were saying.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Hanh Cottrell at IVF Michigan.
Our IUI was $600 plus medication. They billed the ultrasounds and bloodwork through our insurance.

One major strength of hers is that she [Dr. Hanh Cottrell] is upfront and doesn’t sugar coat. When she doesn’t think a treatment is going to work or beleives that something will work, when tells you why and gives you the science behind it. Though she is positive and wants the best, she is not going to sugar coat the seriousness of each situation in a compassionate way.

Grow large, mature follicles with healthy eggs. We did clomid 100 for 5 days, followed by 3 days of 75 memopur and then ovidril. After this wasn’t successful after getting me to ovulate, we decided IVF was our route. We are almost done with 1 month of birth control before starting Stims.

Upfront, easy to get into contact with and very caring. They have conveyed that they are here for us through this entire process. One weakness would be that sometime lab results take a long time to get.
