Dr. Peterson is very nice and friendly, but he doesn't seem to know my case very well, except what he reads off my chart. He's missed some important things in there. Once I saw him in the waiting room in the clinic, and it was clear he didn't recognize me at all. His staff is great though and knows me...is really smart, and I trust him to know the appropriate treatment for me. He is always very patient in answering my many questions, and always presents the information in a way I can understand. I like that he doesn't sugarcoat things, but also presents I options in a hopeful manner.

How was your experience with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Dr. Peterson is really smart, and I trust him to know the appropriate treatment for me. He is always very patient in answering my many questions, and always presents the information in a way I can understand. I like that he doesn't sugarcoat things, but also presents I options in a hopeful manner. His drawbacks include working on a kind of macro level- he doesn't seem interested in helping me optimize my health to increase chances of conception...he told me once that rates don't change much by chasing down every little problem. He hasn't done any labs on me since my first consultation (with another Dr. 2 years prior to my visit with him). I also feel that I he has somewhat neglected my husband throughout this process, despite pretty serious MFI. We lost a few months due to not knowing what was going on.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Advocate for yourself. Make sure he's looking at all the results, and doing the tests you need.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?

Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
I started on metformin 1500mg for 3 months, while my husband started on clomid 50mg for 3 months. Did an SIS to endure everything was good anatomically. Then I started letrozole 5 mg, which I didn't respond to. Used Provera to induce a period, then did 7.5 mg letrozole. Didn't respond. That same day, started 50 mg clomid plus 7.5 letrozole. No response by day 13. Started 5 mg letrozole and 100 mg clomid. No response. Told then I could move to injectibles, or lose weight. Chose to lose weight. After 4 months, I responded to 5 mg letrozole. Tried 3 natural cycles with the letrozole. Then moved to IUI. First was 5 mg letrozole and trigger with ovidrel. No success. Next three IUIs were 7.5 mg letrozole (to try and ovulate earlier than day 19) and ovidrel trigger. CP on second IUI, and then 2 failures. After 4th fail, recommended to do IVF with ICSI.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Every nurse at this clinic is so caring, kind, professional, and great to work with. They get back to me incredibly fast with questions, and treat me so well at the clinic. They've been really sensitive with giving me bad news, and always make it clear that they know how hard this process is. They are just wonderful.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
They have an excellent online portal, which I love using. Refilling prescriptions, communicating with the staff, making appointments, seeing results are all very easy. The clinic offers great hours to make sure treatments are done at the right time. I can always get an appointment when I need one, although it does take awhile to get an appointment with my actual Dr. My one big criticism of the clinic is that they do not enforce their "no children in the clinic" rule and that is very frustrating and painful.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.
I believe the initial consultation was around $200. Each ultrasound was around $350. IUIs are $370 total. My copay for each Dr. Visit was $25. I pay about $20 for a 3 month supply of letrozole, $10 for metformin, and $18 per syringe of ovidrel.

Dr. Peterson is very personable and makes me feel like the current round of IVF, whither it be the 3rd or 4th, matters. Like it's the biggest thing happening in my world- because it is. He is very professional and careful to explain every move he makes when doing vaginal ultrasounds, which I appreciate because lets face it... they are awful. My husband and I have never felt uncomfortable or iffy around him. I have never felt like I was left in the dark about my care plan.

How was your experience with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Dr. Peterson is very personable and makes me feel like the current round of IVF, whither it be the 3rd or 4th, matters. Like it's the biggest thing happening in my world- because it is. He is very professional and careful to explain every move he makes when doing vaginal ultrasounds, which I appreciate because lets face it... they are awful. My husband and I have never felt uncomfortable or iffy around him. I have never felt like I was left in the dark about my care plan. He always make sure I know and understand out next steps. What sincerely impressed me- After I had my daughter, about 6 months postpartum (our only live baby from IVF) I had some uncontrollable bleeding. I went to the ER and they ran tests and wanted me to have a D&C. Because we have moved to a different state and my infertility history, I was nervous about my care plan. I called my Infertility office, The U of U, to ask the nurses what they thought about having the D&C because of the scaring that can occur with it. Instead of hearing back from the nurses, Dr. Peterson, himself called me on the phone. He requested my full ER workup papers and test results. He looked over them and he told me how to handle it moving forward. That instance spoke volumes to the kind of doctor he is and the pride he takes in patient care and his work. I would definitely recommend him to the people closest to me without hesitation.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Always go in to see him with questions and be clear about your expectations for him.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Dr. Peterson is always warm and down to earth. He knows me and my whole history. Every time we meet with him, he comes prepared with all the information and helps my Husband and I make the best decision. He always takes the time to sit and listen to our concerns and answer all of our questions. He is very honest and does not sugar coat anything but is able to deliver the facts and information kindly. He is never condescending like a lot of very intelligent people can be. He makes both my husband and I feel like he cares about us and OUR situation.
Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
At the time of our egg retrieval I was under the care of a different doctor at the University of Utah. I hyperstimulatied really bad and was unable to do a fresh transfer. My doctor took my case to the team and from there on all 5 or so doctors knew about my history and made decisions on my case together. When I began seeing Dr. Peterson he already knew about my history. He had done his "homework" on me so I didn't have to give him the rundown of my medical history of the last 15 years. I was so thankful for that. He did not change up protocol on my FET that he preformed, however, the one he did was the one that we got a live baby out of. I do feel like he watched me closer and I had more frequent appointments and ultrasounds with him because of my history of miscarriage.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Lee Cherie Booth)
Lee Cherie is THE BEST nurse! She has been my primary nurse the entire time I have been at The U. She is very quick at responding to my messages through MyChart. She is very organized, patient with scheduling all my different appointments, and compassionate. She is excellent at communicating and helping me stay organized with my IVF schedule. I love her!
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
Strengths: Communication, organizational skills, making you feel like a human not a number, and building a relationship with you. Weaknesses: The only one I can think of is not being able to reach them on the phone. I always have to leave a message and they always call me back, and in a timely manner. So i guess it's not THAT bad of a weakness haha.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.
There are different plans you can choose from. I don't remember the cost of the egg retrieval. We paid a little more because we needed ICSI. An FET is right around $2700. They are very up front with their cost breakdown. In the 4.5 years we have been going there we have never had any shady billing situation come up. What has been quoted is exactly what we have paid. Prices have never been changed or raised.
Describe Matthew Peterson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
Dr. Peterson presented us with the facts and percentage rates in regards to a single and double embryo transfers. He informed us of the complications and risks that can come with multiple embryo transfer. He never tried to sway us one way or another. He just gave us the facts and let us decide.

He made special efforts to check in with me and my husband, individually- to see how we are doing. He knows the importance and sacrifice couples make to have their children, and is so sensitive to that fact. I have never felt like a "number/patient" always a friend. He is a kind and Christlike man, who will be your greatest ally through your infertility journey.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
From the moment I met Dr. Petterson, it was as if we had known eachother forever. He not only treats me like his only patient, but a dear friend. Through this long and sometimes painful process, it can be so overwhelming and stressful. He will hold my hand say "if you were my daughter"... or just hold my hand while I cry. He is brilliant, I more than trust him with this delicate and special endeavor, of helping my husband and I become parents, I depend on him. He calls after clinical hours, to check in me physically and emotionally. He is a life long friend, and a blessing in our lives.
Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
Ever since the beginning, we have yet to find a "problem" with me or my husband. Not for a lake of testing Given the fact that we are both healthy, with what we can foresee, no issues... Dr. Petterson started me on a birth control, to regulate my cycle. Once it came time I started Gonal-F and menopur. We chose to do a frozen cycle, once time came to implant our frozen embryo, we then began progesterone shots. Dr. Peterson chose a normal dose and schedule for what my "case" was. His approach is, not to throw anything and everything, with hopes of a positive result. He, along with the board of Dr's in the clinic, study my case and decide what route is best.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Lee Charie )
Our sweet nurse was the perfect partner to Dr. Peterson. She was so warm, and so supportive. If I had questions, which I did. She was so quick to respond. She was everything I could have hoped for in a nurse through this process
Describe your experience with University of Utah.

Describe Matthew Peterson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
Dr. Petterson believes the most important thing, is a positive, successful pregnancy. For the baby and mother. He always recommends one embryo transfer at a time, and shows data and fact in the differences with single and multiple pregnancies. Risk Factor. However, he knows this is a personal decision, and allows his patients to make the decision based on one embryo or two. He wants you to know all the facts, so you can make the best decision.

He [Dr. Matthew Peterson] is very intelligent, and has a fair/good bedside manner. Unfortunately, he wasn't involved enough in my monitoring (compared to previous IVF doc); techs & nurses did everything after the initial consultation until the retrieval. I was disappointed, and didn't FEEL like he was involved enough (although he said he reviewed every lab & Ultrasound). In fairness, at the completion of the failed IVF Cycle I told him how I felt, and he said he could be more involved in future cycles. One final dissatisfaction: he says things about financial matters and then the clinic business office contradicts him. Very frustrating.

Tell him that you want HIM to do your monitoring ultrasounds himself...not the techs.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
I felt (whether actual or perceived, I don't know) like he was judging (very discretely) my status as a single mom, and possibly, again very subtly, my non-membership in the dominant faith in Utah).
Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
Supplements: Pregnitude, L-Arginine, Baby Aspirin, DHEA, COENZYME Q 10, Melatonin, Serovital. Meds: Clomid, Cetrotide, Menopur, Gonal F, and Pregnyl trigger.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Lee Cherie Booth)
Lee Cherie Booth is amazing. End of story. The rest of the nursing staff seems so-so compared to a few years ago. Too many techs, not enough time with the Doc.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
Strength: local, easy to contact, prompt, good communication via My chart (email). Weaknesses: inconsistencies between what doc says & business office in regard to financial matters. And as I keep saying, too much time spent with techs & nurses, not enough time with Docs, especially for the significant out of pocket expenses.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.
Roughly $19,000 -20,000 for IVF cycle (egg retrieval), meds, and genetic screen. Another $4-500 for FET & meds.

How was your experience with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
The one thing I don’t love about going to Dr. Peterson is that they work as a team of doctors so it isn’t always the easiest to see him. We want him to do our frozen transfer this next time and will have to wait four months for him to do it. It also took us four months to get in for a consultation. So, it going to take us eight months from when we first reached out to the doctors office. They are really really busy there, but it is worth it to wait for us because we want to be working with him. We like him and feel most comfortable with him.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
He can be kind of blunt and to the point, which is something my husband and I like about him, but he can also be very compassionate and warm. So, if you don’t want some bluntness, and only want warm fuzzies, maybe he isn’t the doctor for you. You also need to be willing to wait a little longer for treatments or be willing to see another doctor on the team.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?

Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
I did 2 retrievals and 3 transfers and that was a couple of years ago so I honestly couldn’t tell you specifics, especially since 1 was a frozen transfer so the protocol was different. I took Menopur, Gonal-F, and Cetrotide. The upped all of these and added HGH on my second retrieval. I also did the progesterone each time. I also get on a birth control for the month before injections each time.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I really like all of the nurses that I have been in contact with. They are all knowledgeable and kind.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
I would say that scheduling is definitely the most frustrating thing for me with the clinic. I also don’t love that there isn’t really any care given once you have finished the cycle. I like the care throughout the process though.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.
It was about $15,000 with meds for our first round. It was about $20,000 with meds for our second. That was a 3 cycle guarantee one so we just paid for meds for our third. We are going to do another frozen transfer and that will be around $4,000 with meds.

Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
We did our first round of IVF with a pretty standard protocol because all testing results pointing to that. I hyper stimulated and had to have a freeze all cycle at the last minute. He was fabulous about my after care. We then did a frozen transfer of 2 embryos which yielded what appeared to be a twin pregnancy. It ended with a miscarriage which again, he handled our aftercare greatly and encouraged us to do another round. We did another fresh cycle, antagonist cycle with HGH. It looked to work well and we transferred an embryo that looked like it should work. Unfortunately it did not.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Lee-Sheri)
She was kind and easy to get in touch with or talk to. I felt that my husband and I were rare cases but we spoke with our Dr more than we did nurses.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
He clinic was fine for me. It is a teaching hospital/clinic so students are around often. If someone is uncomfortable with a student assisting or watching you had to let them know. Also, there is a large team of doctors so you will likely see all different doctors if you don’t make it clear that you want to see the same one every time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.
We spent (including medications) between $12,000-$16,000 for each round of IVF. It was around $3,000 for the frozen cycle. We wanted to do a cycle guarantee but were denied.
Describe Matthew Peterson's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
He seemed to prefer single embryo transfers but gave us all the information we needed to make a proper decision. He supported us when we chose to transfer 2 embryos, and I know he would not have let us make a decision that was not healthy. I knew he’d make sure we couldn’t make a bad decision.

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
The clinic is very busy. You don't necessarily see the same doctor every time. You can't expect that they remember everything that is going on with you. I had to review it alot.
Describe the protocols Matthew Peterson used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
This was 10 year ago, so I know things have changed since then. They were not big on forcing the blastocyst then and so I think we transferred our embryos earlier that we could have.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Good at each part of administering items. Some instructions on meds an shots were not clear Very helpful in the office. Did not always follow up on my individual needs after we were out of the office.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
Professional, well run, but too big to always keep track of what I needed. It is very nice to have everything there and not have to get parts done anywhere else. Within the clinic, I was a number. I went to a smaller clinic after this and liked the feel a lot better.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Matthew Peterson at University of Utah.

He [Dr. Peterson] is very personal, & has a good bedside manner. He knows what he is doing & I trust him. I started under his care & was put on rotations but because of him I now have 7 children. He is an excellent doctor & I would recommend him to anyone. I have recommended him to several people who have gone through this same struggle as I have & have felt like they didn’t know where to go. Matthew is the answer & the right doctor for anyone. He is the best & I'm so grateful for him.

Such a great doctor. He [Dr. Peterson] cares and really knows so much about infertility. He always has a plan for each and every patient. I feel his staff are up to date with infertility treatments. As a patient I trust him to help us get pregnant.... We did 3 IUI each with Femara (fertility drug similar to clomid). Days 14-17 of cycle I would go in for ultrasounds. Once my egg(s) were ready we would do a trigger shot to force me ovaries to release an egg(s) then would follow that with an IUI 36 hours later.

Describe your experience with University of Utah.
There was one physician who brought in an intern without asking my permission and used some language I found a bit offensive (open your legs like a frog...) likely this was exaggerated somewhat because of the hormone therapy!

How was your experience with Matthew Peterson at University of Utah?
Great doctor! I did this from st George which is not his main office, he only comes down 1-2 times a month. He gave me his cell number and was always very kind / helpful / knowledgeable. I went to his main office 4 hours away for the egg retrieval and embryo transfer and he performed both.

They were great. We felt very comfortable in their offices and Dr Peterson was very knowledgeable and explained things very well to us.

Dr Peterson was always very kind and understanding. He answered all my questions, gave me his number so I could call him. I always felt confident in his care. He always presented all our options and risks. I will forever be grateful for his wisdom and care....the best of the best. We did try a different doctor there who is no longer with them, he did not compare to dr Peterson.

He was realistic yet optimistic. He was very kind and treated me like he remembered me and my family, even years later. I love Dr Peterson!...Dr Peterson is my miracle doctor. My fertility diagnosis wasn't good, yet he went forward with what I wanted- IVF using my own eggs. He also saved me and my twins when I had an emergency surgery at 8 weeks...Dr Peterson is the best and is the most knowledgeable with the most experience.

I love my twins but I wish I had done an eSET the first time. The quality of my eggs were good and I was 26 years old. I had a complicated twin pregnancy and that was harder than infertility.
