How was your experience with Mark Gibson at University of Utah?
He was a funny guy, but didn't explain things very well. I had to ask a lot of questions about medical terminology. At the end of our treatment with him, he told us to use donor eggs. We got pregnant on the first cycle at a new clinic, with our own eggs.

I would advise them to get a different opinion before following the treatment course he suggests.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Mark Gibson at University of Utah?
Every time I went in, I saw a different doctor. I would ask questions and a doctor would flip through my chard and then I would be told they'd have to call me later because they didn't know for sure. It was really frustrating.
Describe the protocols Mark Gibson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
We did IVF with him. I don't remember my medication dosage, but he told me they couldn't increase it any more. I went to a different clinic and got pregnant on the first cycle with them.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was mostly great! One nurse was always very short and seemed grumpy, but I didn't have to work with her very often. The nurses were great about getting back to me quickly with medication changes and/or updates.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
I thought this clinic was on the cutting edge of technology because they are at a research university, but I later realized that was not the case at all. I also didn't like that I never knew what doctor I'd be seeing or who would be doing my procedures, etc. The only good thing about this clinic is that the nurses were quick to respond when I left messages, etc.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mark Gibson at University of Utah.
IVF was around $8500. I don't remember how much my meds were for that cycle.
