Describe the protocols Laura Cooney used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
Birth control orally for one month Lupron daily in the am-10mg After a week or two we had our baseline ultrasound and started menopur(75mg) and gonal f(150mg) also lupron decreases to 5mg. After 10 days we decided to trigger with hcg -10,000 units. We retrieved 16 eggs in which they only fertilized 12, resulting in 2 embryos. We transferred the embryos on day 3, with a negative pregnancy test.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nurses were great. They always responded to questions via MyChart very promptly. There was one instance where they scheduled my pregnancy test two days early and didn’t catch it until after the blood draw. They were apologetic for it
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
Clinic is clean and has a warm feel. The staff are welcoming. The lobby is a quiet environment. The nursing staff and mds were great and efficient. The finance department I felt like was a bit unorganized. They required we meet with a counselor prior to treatment. We hated that appointment and felt it very unnecessary
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
We were seen between 7-830am for monitoring appointments. They felt welcoming however it was like, “ go ahead get undressed and the staff will be in” staff came in, chatted and then did the ultrasound. If you had any questions you could ask them. They were less than 30 min appointments

15-16,000 including meds for 1 treatment cycle
Describe Laura Cooney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.

How was your experience with Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Dr Cooney shows genuine compassion her patients, even when (or maybe ESPECIALLY when) a patient has been told by a prior doctor to stop trying to conceive altogether. She has a great knowledge of the field, and very openly shared all relevant statistics with us whenever we had a question. She also made us feel like we weren’t a lost cause, and that though the chance wasn’t guaranteed...there was a chance. And now we’re expecting! So we will be forever grateful for Dr. Cooney and the Generations team.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
My advice would be don’t be afraid to ask questions. She is extremely knowledgeable, and willing to answer any question to help put you at ease.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals?
Dr Cooney spoke very candidly with us about the expectations that we should have. She was very compassionate, while ensuring that we have realistic expectations. As our first cycle with a different doctor had failed, Dr. Cooney was careful to not “guarantee” that we could get pregnant, while being optimistic enough that it COULD happen (and it did!). We also felt as though Dr Cooney was genuinely rooting for our success.
Describe the protocols Laura Cooney used in your cycles at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals and their degree of success.
Dr Cooney adjusted my protocol slightly to account for improving our odds with the first round. That said, the protocol was relatively standard. The lab allowed our embryos to grow out to day 7, which is when they both went to blastocyst.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The nursing staff at generations was knowledgeable and compassionate.
Describe your experience with Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The strengths of this clinic are the knowledge of the staff, the ability and willingness to adjust/try new things of a cycle didn’t go well, and the research to stay up with the most recent trends/treatments. The only weakness was the lack of a payment plan for IVF, as it can be pretty pricy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Laura Cooney at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
The costs for us were a payment package, that included everything up until the pregnancy test. Including the frozen transfer.
Describe Laura Cooney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Generations & University of Wisconsin Hospitals.
At Generations, the doctors and the embryology lab meet as a group on Mondays to discuss all of the embryos created that week, to form a recommendation on how to proceed (implanting 1 or 2). However, this is simply a recommendation. Generally, I believe they recommend one embryo, but in some cases will recommend two. But it’s always your choose how to proceed.
