I have went thru several losses including a stillbirth so Dr Hanson worked thru my anxiety of doing treatments. He has changed my treatments to fit me not just text book treatments. The first retrieval I felt like it wasn't going to be successful and Dr Hanson kept talking to me about positivity and keeping my faith.... 1st retrieval- follistim, ganirelix, menopur 75mg, and trigger shot. 14 eggs retrieved, 13 fertilized without assistance, 2 "B+" eggs, 9 "B" eggs, 2 "C" eggs. The 2 "B+" eggs were transferred on day 5 the rest did not make it to freeze. Negative pregnancy test. 2nd retrieval- birth control, lupron, follistim, menopur, trigger shot. 18 eggs retrieved, 16 fertilized on their own, transferred 2 grade "B" on day 3, 2 made it to freeze. Negative pregnancy

How was your experience with Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
Dr Hansen was a phenomenal doctor. I found him to be very good at what he does, as well a very kind person. I would recommend him to anyone needing RE services in a heartbeat. He listened to my concerns, answered all of my questions to my satisfaction, was not hurried during appointments, and clearly explained what he would be doing in any procedures.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health?
Dr Karl Hansen’s bedside manner was exemplary. He was warm, genuine, and extremely approachable.
Describe the protocols Karl Hansen used in your cycles at OU Physicians Reproductive Health and their degree of success.
I used drugs including Clomid and progesterone shots to prepare for the IUI cycle. I completed one IUI cycle with Dr Hansen, which was unsuccessful, and also did a HSG scan prior to this. I took a one month break before the next IUI and during that time became pregnant with no assistance. I am now 27 weeks pregnant. Dr Hansen was very happy for us! One previous OB mentioned that he had noticed an apparent correlation between patients who had the HSG procedure and subsequently fell naturally pregnant the following month or two. This happened in our case, so we will wonder if maybe it made a difference for us. This other OB theorized that perhaps the HSG dye clbeing flushed through the tubes cleared away congestion in the tubes to increase the likelihood of fertilization.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was very good! They were all warm, professional, and friendly.
Describe your experience with OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
The clinic staff was very helpful with billing and insurance questions. They Answered my questions gladly, and were Efficient making and keeping appointments. Overall great experience with office staff.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Karl Hansen at OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
I think IUIs were around $1250 per cycle including everything, medications, iui procedure, related appointments, labs.

We briefly spoke about this when we were choosing our course of treatment and he gave us statistics that would have made us comfortable with either option. It was very helpful and informative because we thought we would automatically want to transfer 2 but that wasn’t the cas after hearing th stats

Describe your experience with OU Physicians Reproductive Health.
Overall, our experience with the clinic was great. Our insurance did not cover the actual IUI, which was ok. I believe it cost $400. However, we did have several issues getting a few ultrasounds covered after the fact and it took almost a year of talking with the billing department and my insurance to get it corrected.

The receptionist was so friendly at every visit. It was nice to see a smiling face when you are nervous. I remember being greeted by the nurses. The staff always seemed to remember me and ask about specific things going on in my life.
