A multiple embryo transfer was discussed. Dr. Ehrhart was open to it on a situational basis. We discussed it at length and created a plan forward...answered all questions in a clear--easy to understand manner, gave multiple approaches and plans forward that allowed us to have ownership in our process and had the perfect balance of compassion and direct medical advice...Her hands on and personal approach was EXACTLY what we were looking for in a fertility specialist.
Amy [nurse at CCRM Colorado] was very kind and helpful in every way. She in an incredibly knowledgeable and patient nurse...Very nice, clean, clinic. Feels up to date with all the latest technology. It is nice to be able to get all of the treatment done in one place (ultrasounds, blood draws, doctor consults, etc.) I always had encounters with pleasant staff people. No weaknesses that I can think of...truly went above and beyond to make a challenging process as smooth as possible.

[Dr. Lauren Ehrhart] come across as very knowledgeable and compassionate. She really wanted to hear about my concerns and my fertility journey. She was sympathetic, and she was clear about the path forward / next steps...really took the time to listen to me, my concerns, and my journey thus far. She asked a number of questions and really seemed compassionate and interested...organized, well-tested approach
[CCRM Colorado] INSISTED ON RE-TESTING EVERYTHING. WOULD NOT TAKE RESULTS WITHIN THE LAST 6 MONTHS. Basically, essentially, was going to rebill me / my insurance for all the testing I'd been through within 6 months, which most clinics accept if current within the last year. RIDICULOUSLY EXPENSIVE and inflexible... strengths are in its organized, well-tested approach. Laboratory is one of the best in the country. Their SART rates are within the top 10 in the nation. Clearly a well-run clinic that has been doing this for some time.

I felt very well taken care of. She [Dr. Lauren Ross Ehrhart] utilized her peers to get ideas when things didn’t go as planned. I felt she really cared about me and my situation. When I had questions, she answered them. She was very responsive and caring.... I was on a high dose stims protocol to battle my DOR.... A round of IVF was about $23,000. My IUI was about $2,000
The clinic’s [CCRM-CO] weekday staff has always been amazing. The only time I’ve had less than stellar service is the weekend nursing team. I also love the ladies who do the blood draws. They are so sweet and make the process more bearable.... Taylor [a nurse] has been amazing. She is so sweet and caring. She gets right back to me and takes time to answer my questions and concerns.

She [Dr. Lauren Ehrhart] was very thourough and thoughtful in the initial appointment. I had a Test to check for fibroids with her and she came back that there was nothing. After 2 rounds of IUI they thought they saw some so she went in again and found the firbroids. Had them removed by my OBGYN. Have not had contact with her since that. ... I like the efficiency of the system [at CCRM Colorado]!
I think they [CCRM Colorado - Lone Tree] are very organized and have specific methods that you are put into quickly. I like the efficiency of the system! Sometimes it feels a little impersonal but I prefer the quick, fast paced method over that ... Expensive testing at the beginning. IUI procedure seems fair ... [Nursing staff] Very on top of things— quick calls and plan of attack

Dr Erhart is kind, tells it like it is and sets expectations that are reasonable. She has a warm heart and a a smile to greet you. She's compassionate.... She doesn't mind all the questions. She clearly cares for the well being of her patients. She is thorough. We have had 1 retrieval and 1 upcoming. Even when we had to change course, we feel confident in her and CCRM.... Ask her all the questions, even if it needs to be explained twice.
The only ones we've had a harder time with is the business office [CCRM Colorado] but we haven't had problems as others have had with them. I don't like that you don't get an itemized bill. I love that they answer the phone and email everyday. It's very comforting.... The first retrieval, we didn't realize we had to schedule nurse followups, counselor appointments and a physical. It was in really small print on the calendar. Read everything! And i had to request a nurse send in a follow up presecrption post retrieval but then it was done very timely.
