How was your experience with Kevin Bachus at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Dr Bachus was always very knowledgeable, and he helped us understand the treatment options well. He was kind and compassionate when things did not go as planned. He did leave a lot of the actual treatments to his nursing staff, so we only saw him occasionally at our appointments, but each morning he and his staff got together and discussed each case individually so they all knew the happenings of the clinic. This was nice to know that everyone was on the same page.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kevin Bachus at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Be ready to ask questions about your treatment plan, and he will answer! Most of the time our questions were answered before we asked, so it was nice to have everything explained.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kevin Bachus at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine?
Everyone in the office was so friendly, and they really made us feel welcome. Everything was so individualized, we were not just a number.
Describe the protocols Kevin Bachus used in your cycles at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine and their degree of success.
We had testing done before any procedures took place. This tested determined what steps we could take next! We went straight to IUI because of male factor infertility, and I am glad the tested helped us with a baseline. It did take 2 failed IUIs and us asking before we tried any medication for the male factor problems, and I wonder if we had asked sooner if that would have changed anything.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine. (Assigned nurse: Melissa)
The nursing staff was incredible. We were often working with the nurses at our appointments, and that was fine with me! I knew that everyone was on the same page about our treatment plan. I had great relationships with all the girls. My nurse even came in on her day off just for us and our IUI treatment! She truly went above and beyond because we had a huge bond!
Describe your experience with Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
The clinic was well organized and well run. We never felt like just a number. I do like that each morning the staff all got together to discuss each case. This truly helped in that everyone was on the same page. Because of that, if we didn’t see Dr Bachus, that was ok because our nurse knew what was going on.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kevin Bachus at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
We were fortunate enough to have insurance completely cover our IUI treatments at the clinic. Our insurance did not cover medications, so those were the only costs for us. We had to change insurance at the time we were ready to start IVF, and our new insurance did not cover infertility. The cost of IVF at the clinic would be $16000, and that does not include medication.
Describe Kevin Bachus's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Rocky Mountain Center for Reproductive Medicine.
After our 3 negative IUI cycles, we had a consultation for IVF. At that meeting, it was recommended that only one embryo be transferred due to my circumstances. (Age, previous pregnancy, and our current male factor infertility) The recommendation for single or multiple embryos might be different for someone else.
