Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Peterson and Kim the nurse practitioner have both been very personable and invested in my care...While being personable he is also honest and realistic. When I asked questions he responded with evidence-based answers and references studies...Dr. Peterson allowed me to give my opinion on whether or not I continued my cycle when there were multiple eggs just prior to ovulation...
All of the staff [at Nevada Fertility Center] has been outstanding. Kim [NP] did most of my exams and ultrasounds. April and Maribel were often the ones greeting me and placing me in a room. Both were very prompt whenever I called or messaged them on the app. Ronnie at the front desk is always friendly, helpful and somehow remembers my name each time...
How was your experience with Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas)?
All of my monitoring appointments except for one were with Kim, Dr. Peterson's NP. The one that was not with Kim was done by another NP in the office. At nearly all my appointments Dr. Peterson was in his office and available if needed. Kim is compassionate, detailed, takes the time to explain everything, and was always prompt in getting back to me whenever I messaged with questions. Whether on the phone or in-person I felt cared for.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas)?
He is very personable (even over telemed). While being personable he is also honest and realistic. When I asked questions he responded with evidence-based answers and references studies.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas)?
Dr. Peterson and Kim the nurse practitioner have both been very personable and invested in my care. This is night and day compared to the previous clinic I was at.
Describe the protocols Kurt Peterson used in your cycles at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas) and their degree of success.
I had two IUI cycles with Kim and Dr. Peterson. With both Letrozole 5mg x 5 days was used. Both cycles my lining was thin and I was prescribed Estrace 2mg. We used ultrasound monitoring and an HCG trigger shot for ovulation. Following IUI I was prescribed Progesterone until my blood draw for the pregnancy test.

Describe your experience with Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
Strengths - personable, good about explaining the process, prompt in getting back to me. The clinic was never overcrowded and I never waited more than 10 min for my appointment. Weakness - as strange as it sounds I wished they collected my copay each time I went. A couple of times I offer to pay but was told they would wait for insurance and the copays added up. I would rather pay each time to avoid this.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
IUI was covered by my HPN insurance so there was little for me. I have a meeting with the financial department to discuss the cost of IVF. IVF seems to be far more responsible than other clinics in town.
Describe Kurt Peterson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
I do not have any comments about this however I can say that Dr. Peterson and Kim were far more willing to troubleshoot my cycles as issues developed. Additionally, Dr. Peterson allowed me to give my opinion on whether or not I continued my cycle when there were multiple eggs just prior to ovulation. The previous clinic canceled my cycles for issues such as a 9mm cyst and a thin uterine lining. Dr. Peterson and Kim explained the issue or prescribed medications to help.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Peterson seemed open and enthusiastic about helping me and my husband start our family. He was honest about this experience working with gay couples and answered all our questions to the best of his ability. We never felt rushed or othered during our conversation...seemed enthusiastic about helping us 2 gay guys start our family
[Nevada Fertility Center] Front desk and all the staff were super friendly and helpful. You could tell they primarily served heterosexual clients but we never felt awkward or uncomfortable interacting with anyone at the clinic being a gay male couple. The front desk and nurses that took our blood/semen samples were all friendly and professional.
How was your experience with Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas)?
Super personable and seemed enthusiastic about helping us 2 gay guys start our family. He was honest about his conservative upbringing in Utah but admits to having since grown after being exposed to more gay people. We liked the honesty and openness he seemed to exude during that initial meeting.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas)?
Feel free to ask questions. Dr. Peterson was very patient and never made us feel like we were asking a 'dumb' question or one with an obvious answer.

Describe the protocols Kurt Peterson used in your cycles at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas) and their degree of success.
We did initial blood work and sperm screenings. My husband's sample was accepted and frozen but mine had no sperm count (due to a previous testosterone therapy). Dr. Peterson prescribed me some medications to help with sperm production and we were going to check again in a few months.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas). (Assigned nurse: Crystal Rosburg)
Crystal is amazing. She is our primary point of contact at the clinic because she specializes in 3rd Party reproductive patients. She is a previous gestational carrier having carried siblings for a gay couple. She knows her stuff and answers emails/questions quickly.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Kurt Peterson at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
They have different packages but specifically have one tailored to gay male couples that has unlimited embryo transfers guaranteed until a birth occurs which they made sure to emphasize because other clinics don't have this.
Describe Kurt Peterson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
He seemed to strongly prefer eSET because of the safety of both the fetus and the gestational carrier.
How competent was Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas) at LGBTQ care?
Its still early in the process but so far no red flags.
Describe your experience using 3rd party reproduction (donor eggs, donor sperm, or gestational carrier) at Nevada Fertility Center (FKA SIRM Las Vegas).
We aren't at the step of using donor eggs yet but we're considering using their pool. Because they source their eggs from their Utah branch, they claim to have a large ~300 donor pool to choose from. They do not source gestational carriers.
