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. ... Dr Cooney adjusted my protocol slightly to account for improving our odds with the first round. ... She also made us feel like we weren’t a lost cause, and that though the chance wasn’t guaranteed...there was a chance.
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). ... The lab allowed our embryos to grow out to day 7, which is when they both went to blastocyst. ... The costs for us were a payment package, that included everything up until the pregnancy test. Including the frozen transfer.
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.
