Dr. Bowling was very friendly and answered all of my questions with respect and concern. I never felt like she was just trying to get through her list of patients or treated like a number. She did an amazing job for the cycle I worked with her on...Dr. Bowling did an amazing job assessing each test and scan to adjust how to proceed. She communicated her advice very well through responding personally to my messages when I had a question.
Carolina Conceptions is a wonderful place. The offices are nice and inviting. They keep the lighting the in the rooms dim so you don't feel so "exposed" when doing internal ultrasounds. They also have bathrooms attached to most exam rooms so it is just "right there" for you! All of the staff are super knowledgeable and helpful. Everyone is always extremely friendly...The Nurses at Carolina Conceptions are outstanding! They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable and understand each visit and what to do. I always enjoyed each nurse I have seen.

Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
My cycle went pretty well. We only had one set back when I started the cycle with a cyst on one ovary. I just had to take birth control an extra week, the next week the cyst was still there but wasn't active anymore so I was able to move forward and start estrogen.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions.
The whole process is extremely pricey. I do not feel like the pricing of this facility is over priced when compared to other facilities. This is a very intense and delicate process, understandably the cost is going to be substantial.

I was very nervous for my initial consultation with Dr Bowling. She immediately made me feel comfortable and explained everything in a humanized manner that I could understand...I had understood to have diminished ovarian reserve through another blood test and Dr Bowling made me feel confident those results could be trusted. With this diagnosis, she explained a best course of action and what next steps would be. She answered all the questions my husband and I had with patience and compassion.
This [Carolina Conceptions] office is accommodating and you’re able to visit with a doctor quickly. With fertility, it feels like time is of the essence and they made me feel like I was important. The first appointment is virtual which makes the situation of discussing fertility comfortable...My communication with the nursing staff has been limited, however, I’ve enjoyed my interaction with them.

She [Dr. Bowling] is so friendly and compassionate. During my last loss, she grieved with me. I can’t describe what a comfort she has been through a really hard process. She is always accessible by email, and I never feel rushed when I ask questions. She explains the risks and options really well, and that makes me feel like I’m a part of the decision making which is empowering...She’s really up to date on the research, so she’ll be able to explain the pros and cons of all possible treatment options.
Terry [nurse at Carolina Conceptions] is super experienced and confident. She is a pro, and she is a really good teacher. She is also very accessible by email which I appreciated. She helped coordinate everything with insurance for my meds which was a huge headache. I love her!...The things I’ve had go wrong were more or less minor and related to the volume of patients at the practice...Strengths: size, volume of patients it can handle, equipment, scheduling is easy, nurse instructors are great, providers are available by email. Weaknesses: no online portal, decor, lots of pictures of babies on the walls which makes me sad, hard to get someone on the phone, due to volume of patients, there are waiting periods for classes.

Dr. Bowling always took lots of time to explain everything, hear me out, make me feel comfortable and answer ALL my questions (and I had tons). She’s also super responsive by email which is really nice.
Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
For IVF, I did lupron flare for 2 days then started Gonal in the morning and menopure (4 vials of it) at night. I have borderline diminished ovarian reserve, so that was the rationale for an aggressive protocol.

She [Dr. Meaghan Bowling] is really knowledgeable and seems to know what is best for me as a patient. She ordered bloodwork that the previous doctor said wasn't necessary and discovered that my TSH was a little high which could inhibit ovulation even more. So she put me on meds that I wouldn't have gotten otherwise...She definitely is straight forward and doesn't sugar coat things but she has a warm personality.
[The nurses at Carolina Conceptions are] always nice and welcoming and answer any questions I have. They made me feel ok even during disappointed and failed treatments...The receptionists are always super nice and welcoming.

Dr Bowling is very knowledgeable of not just the female but the effects of the male fertility system. She made us feel comfortable, even thought the odds are against us, she reassured us in the best option for us to start our family would be IVF. Walked us through the entire procedure making sure that we were comfortable with the treatment plan. Very relate able and personable!!...She will give you the good and bad but she wants to you know ALL of your options and will make sure that you are comfortable with your care plan and if not then she will reassure you if there are no other or best options based on your case.
All of the nurses [at Carolina Conceptions] were warm and welcoming and assured us that we were in the best of hands with Dr Bowling...The cost for IVF treatment and Medication was about average of the national rate. Give or take a few 100.00. The FCC did advise of financial companies that we could look into to assist with the cost...Clinic setting is perfect, informational text to review while you wait, staff is welcoming and personal! Made sure that we had everything that we need, met with the financial care counselor who went over our insurance coverage, what insurance covered and what we would be responsible for. I can honestly say i did not see or witness any weakness within the office or staff. I would defiantly refer anyone here and strongly considering their office for our treatment!!

Dr Bowling is SO relate-able, warm, caring, and is concerned about not just the well being of the reproductive part of an woman but is also concerned about the individual as a whole emotionally and physically. She may have been the 2nd doctor whom my husband & I consulted about our treatment but I feel totally confident she will take care of us and has us and our future family in her best interest. She made sure that we fully understood all of our options, diagnoses, process and procedures. I would diffidently recommend her to anyone who is looking for fertility treatment.
Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
We only had a consult with her. We did inquire about INVOcell but due to the male factors against us, I would not be a good option for us that IVF would be our best and only option that would help us to start our family.

Dr. Bowling was the sweetest and most compassionate .... She never once made us feel uncomfortable based on our same sex relationship and went above and beyond to answer any and all questions we had (and there were many). ... she was the only doctor that made us aware we were using low count sperm and potentially wasting a valuable IUI. Her help with getting our money back and recommendations for future donor banks as well as her genuine compassion when we were so utterly let down and defeated was matched by no others. We truly loved the experience with her, even the not so happy parts, and hope she is the one who helps us make our family a reality soon!
The staff [Carolina Conceptions] are all quite friendly from the front desk to the lab to the doctors and nurses. They are all very helpful and in one visit can give you basically everything you need to know about the journey you are starting. They were able to give us a cost breakdown on our first visit and helped us with deciding what route to go (IUI, IVF, or Invocell) and why. They keep their appointments running in time and the front desk ladies are nearly always able to answer your questions when you call worrying about this or that!!
How was your experience with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr. Bowling was the sweetest and most compassionate out of all of the doctors we have seen at the clinic. She never once made us feel uncomfortable based on our same sex relationship and went above and beyond to answer any and all questions we had (and there were many). We had a small setback during an IUI with her, involving the sperm count of our donor. She explained her reservations about using it, and went out of her way to help us resolve this with the sperm bank that gave us basically worthless sperm. This was our second time using this donor (first time with her though) but she was the only doctor that made us aware we were using low count sperm and potentially wasting a valuable IUI. Her help with getting our money back and recommendations for future donor banks as well as her genuine compassion when we were so utterly let down and defeated was matched by no others.

For the second round of ivf [with Dr. Meaghan Bowling] we tried a new growth hormone which resulted in one of my ovaries stimulating too quickly, so we only retrieved 4 eggs... but happily one of those eggs resulted in a baby...We've studied and tried anything and everything. Dr. Bowling never tried to question all of our research the last several years, but she was willing to try something new...has an extremely warm personality and is always available. She gave us her email address the first time we met with her and is always very responsive! We visited 2 other fertility clinics in the area, one we also really liked but it was a bit of a hike from our home, and the other the doctor was extremely cold. It is always a pleasure to work with Dr. Bowling.
All of the nurses [at Carolina Conceptions] were great and compassionate. They all made you feel like a human and not just a number...Due to my history of implantation failures and a vanishing twin, we opted to transfer two embryos.... It was around $10,500 for the full ICSI cycle and fresh transfer... is a bit more expensive than some of the other clinics, but you get what you pay for. All of the staff is amazing. We're just hoping they can help us make a baby :) Definitely do your research. We went to three clinics in the area. We also looked and studied all of the SART reports. One clinic actually got defensive when I asked why they were showing 2014 data in their office (not the clinic we went with....)
How was your experience with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
To be honest, all of the doctors we've met at Carolina Conceptions have been extremely nice - along with all of the nurses. Dr. Bowling did do one of my ultrasounds during stims, one of my two egg retrievals there and did one of my three transfers. My previous cycle was done overseas and I never saw my doctor until the transfer, so it was nice to see Dr. Bowling sometimes throughout. She also personally called me with my results- you're pregnant! And then again 2 days later to tell me my hcg levels had dropped. It was nice that she called me directly for good- and bad news. Luckily after the second full round of ivf with Carolina it worked :) She was also willing to try stims a bit different to see if we could get more eggs retrieved for my cycle. Previously at a different clinic we had 6 eggs for one round and 7 eggs for the next... with Carolina we retrieved 10 eggs! For the second round of ivf we tried a new growth hormone which resulted in one of my ovaries stimulating too quickly, so we only retrieved 4 eggs... but happily one of those eggs resulted in a baby.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
We are not the normal "new" patient coming in. We've done a few rounds of IVF and ICSI along with fet's. We've studied and tried anything and everything. Dr. Bowling never tried to question all of our research the last several years, but she was willing to try something new. I can't speak for a new patient coming in who doesn't already know their fertility issues- we had already done all of our pre-testing and had our son via ICSI overseas. But I can say as an experienced patient, she is great and much warmer than our previous doctor :)
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr. Bowling has an extremely warm personality and is always available. She gave us her email address the first time we met with her and is always very responsive! We visited 2 other fertility clinics in the area, one we also really liked but it was a bit of a hike from our home, and the other the doctor was extremely cold. It is always a pleasure to work with Dr. Bowling.
Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
My amh is extremely low, 0.8, especially for my age 32. In my previous two cycles I was on a flare protocol on gonal f 450 1x a day. Each time I stimmed for 14 days. First cycle we retrieved 6 eggs, all mature. Second cycle we retrieved 7 eggs, 4 were mature. The second cycle resulted in my son (along with a vanishing twin). With Carolina we also did a flare cycle, but two times a day and also added menopur. 2 viles of menopure and 150 gonal f, morning and night. The upping of the meds to 600 per day allowed us to retrieve 10 eggs, of those, 6 were mature and we made 4, 5-day high grade blasts. We transferred two 5-days fresh transfer and it resulted in a chemical pregnancy. The other two are still frozen planning a future fet. We also used ICSI as we also did for my second cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Carolina Conceptions. (Assigned nurse: Taylor)
All of the nurses were great and compassionate. They all made you feel like a human and not just a number.
Describe your experience with Carolina Conceptions.
Carolina is a bit more expensive than some of the other clinics, but you get what you pay for. All of the staff is amazing. We're just hoping they can help us make a baby :) Definitely do your research. We went to three clinics in the area. We also looked and studied all of the SART reports. One clinic actually got defensive when I asked why they were showing 2014 data in their office (not the clinic we went with....)
Describe the costs associated with your care under Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions.
Our insurance does not cover ivf. It was around $10,500 for the full ICSI cycle and fresh transfer. The drugs we ordered overseas to save money and were around $5000- they would've been around $9000 if we bought them through the USA pharmacy.
Describe Meaghan Bowling's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Carolina Conceptions.
Due to my history of implantation failures and a vanishing twin, we opted to transfer two embryos.

Dr. Bowling is very caring and is open about going through IVF herself. She is just awesome! She was very clear with our options and she was open to our suggestions while providing the best level of care. ... We tried to take medications for an IUI but my body did not respond to the meds. We used my sister as an egg donor and we were able to have 3 eggs to make it to blastocysts stage. We transferred a fresh blastocyst which failed and then 2 months later we transferred our frozen 2 which results in my son.
Everyone was great at Carolina Conceptions from the front desk staff, lab, nurses, doctors, embryologist, and finance. We had such a positive experience with them all. They worked together as a team to help you have the greatest experience. ... Ellie was well organized and had a great line of open communication. Every email or call I sent her she messages me or called me back that same day.
How was your experience with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Same as my previous post. She was so caring and very sympathetic to our failed transfer. She hugs us as we come in and is very knowledgeable. I would recommend Dr Bowling to any of my friends and family who may eventually deal with infertility. I love the fact that she truly cares about her patients and does not treat them like just a number. She gives great advice and is very honest about our care.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?

Dr. Bowling is always very kind and approachable when I have face-to-face appointments with her. She answers all of my questions. I feel comfortable even asking the silly questions. I always have a lot of questions! The only complaint I would have would be her timeliness answering emails. I know she is probably very busy with other patients so I hate to even bring this up. Sometimes she answers emails in an appropriate amount of time but other times it may take a few days before she answers.
Everyone is so friendly at Carolina Conceptions. From the front desk, to the doctors, lab staff, and the nurses, I always feel comfortable. I never feel like a number there. It is very clean office. I have not had a bad experience at CC.... The nurses at Carolina Conception are super friendly and make you feel very comfortable during ultrasounds and/or procedures. I don't have anything bad to say about the nursing staff.

Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
I was on 1500mg/day of Metformin for all treatment cycles. My first two cycles with Dr. Bowling, I took 5mg of Letrozole on days 3-7 with timed intercourse. I did not fall pregnant with either Letrozole cycle. My third treatment - I took 5 mg of letrozole on days 3-7 and added Gonal-F (150 IU) on days 7-9 with timed intercourse. I chose to do this unmonitored to save money. I did not fall pregnant this cycle. IUI #1 - I took 5 mg of letrozole on days 3-7 and Gonal-F (150 IU) on days 7-9. I was monitored. I went in for a baseline ultrasound and and ultrasound on day 10. I had three mature follicles and triggered with Ovidrel. My IUI was done 36 hours after the trigger shot was taken. My husband gave his sample the day of the IUI. I did fall pregnant this cycle but it unfortunately ended in a chemical pregnancy. For IUI #2&3 I did the same treatment as IUI #1 but unfortunately I have not get pregnant.

My insurance did not cover any fertility expenses other than the consultation but I have a high deductible plan so I still had to pay $177 for my visit. Each ultrasound is about $250. Each IUI is about $400. Plus medication which ranged from $800-$1,200.

Dr. Bowling has a positive attitude and has helped uncover a handful of diagnosis that are contributing to infertility.... Sometimes she doesn't have all of the answers because there are so many factors that go into getting and staying pregnant when you have infertility issues.... We began with a saline sonogram to make sure my D&C was complete. In this procedure I learned I had endometriosis and some pretty large cysts.
They [Carolina Conceptions] are excellent at working you in to an appointment. If you need to be seen that morning they allow you to walk in. I like that they have appointments starting as early as 7:30 so that you can still get to work at a reasonable time. The financial staff is super helpful in figuring out the cost of procedures and medicine based on your insurance.... My surgery was $1,700. The scans will now be $250 each with 2-3 per cycle.
How was your experience with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Meghan thinks before she speaks on giving advice. She took the time to look over bloodwork and ultrasounds before advising next steps. Dr. Bowling has a positive attitude and has helped uncover a handful of diagnosis that are contributing to infertility.

Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
We began with a saline sonogram to make sure my D&C was complete. In this procedure I learned I had endometriosis and some pretty large cysts. Next, we decided to start with follicle monitoring while on clomid and taking a trigger shot. I took progesterone suppositories after the trigger. We did timed intercourse. The clomid was the help boost my ovaries since my AMH was slightly low. The progesterone was given due to my mid cycle spotting and prior miscarriage. The first cycle I responded, the second I didn't. Since I didn't respond the second time surgery to remove the endo was recommended and completed. More bloodwork was completed to check AMH which rose to normal levels and thyroid which showed positive antibodies. This is linked to recurrent miscarriages, so I am on synthroid to combat that.

The atmosphere at the clinic [Carolina Conceptions] is very inviting, and makes you feel welcomed. The ladies that work in the front remember who you are and take the time to talk to you. I am a teacher and they were always very flexible to work around my schedule so I did not have to take off a lot of work...Although fertility treatment is expensive, the financial team was very helpful and took the time to sit down with you to break down each cost...The nursing staff was always very friendly and made me feel very comfortable.

Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
I was on the Microdose Lupron protocol, due to diminishing ovarian reserve. - 10 iu microdose lupron - 225 Gonal F - 75 IU Menupeur - 250 Ovidrel (trigger shot) I did not respond well to the stimulants, and no eggs were retrieved.

Dr. Bowling is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. She has taken the time to sit and talk with me several times, even when it may have been inconvenient for her. When I had questions and reservations about the next steps for our fertility journey, she was able to talk me through each step, making sure that I fully understood everything and felt comfortable as we went. She reassured me of my risks, offered practical advice about next steps, and was patient as my husband and I decided.
The woman at the front desk [at Carolina Conceptions] has been somewhat abrasive to me on several occasions, even to the point of my delaying the start of treatment with the office for almost 8 months because of her rudeness. She was very unaccommodating when I explained my schedule as a teacher 30 minutes away, especially in regards to my difficulty and inflexibility with scheduling. However, everyone else on the staff is extremely considerate, informative, and accommodating!

Dr. Bowling is extremely personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. She has taken the time to sit and talk with me several times, even when it may have been inconvenient for her.

She reassured me of my risks, offered practical advice about next steps, and was patient as my husband and I decided. We are hoping to begin the IVF process this summer, and it is largely because of her ability to comfort my concerns and address my needs as an individual, rather than as a statistic. I've been to other fertility clinics in the area and felt very un-heard, rushed, and valued only as a statistic in their office results. Dr. Bowling is NOTHING like that! I have loved every appointment I've had with her and it truly is because of her that we are planning to proceed with IVF to grow our family when I had previously rejected the idea of IVF altogether.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Ask questions! She is patient and willing to answer every concern, and is so sweet and knowledgeable as she answers!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions?
Dr. Bowling is THE BEST! She has always been willing to spend extra time with me if I need it, explain procedures and symptoms extremely thoroughly, and spend time getting to know my husband and me, including our desires and preferences for treatment. I've never felt pressured to do a procedure, or to take things faster than I preferred. I have always felt very well cared for by both nurses and physicians alike!
Describe the protocols Meaghan Bowling used in your cycles at Carolina Conceptions and their degree of success.
We started with basic hormone pills (Letrozole), then adjusted to try to trigger a greater response when we didn't see the follicles we wanted. Then, Dr. Bowling added a small steroid to help the growth of the follicles on my left side because it wasn't responding as well--and we saw great results with that! Then, we did an HSG test to check for scar tissue from a previous ectopic pregnancy, and that is when Dr. Bowling diagnosed the tubal blockage on the right side. From there, we also discussed that my condition is not-quite PCOS, and Dr. Bowling explaining that because of the tubal blockage + ovary dysfunction, our chances of getting pregnant through TIC or IUI were extremely low. Dr. Bowling then met with me for nearly an hour to discuss both IVF and embryo adoption, giving me the time and space to process all the information. Our next steps will be to begin the IVF process this summer, when I am not teaching.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Carolina Conceptions. (Assigned nurse: Terri)
Terri is THE BEST!!!!! Actually, every nurse I've seen has been amazing, but Terri has been so incredibly helpful every step of the way! As a teacher who works 30 minutes from the office, Terri was able to leave extremely detailed voicemails when I couldn't answer the phone, and meet with me in the hallways after visits to address any questions or concerns. She's been so incredibly helpful and informative, plus I love that she is very straight forward in her communication. She is not wanting to waste anyone's time, and I so appreciate her!!!

Describe the costs associated with your care under Meaghan Bowling at Carolina Conceptions.
All nurse visits were approx. $35, but doctor visits were $85. Prescriptions were varying in prices, but most of the pills were fairly affordable. The Ovidrel was expensive, but mostly due to my insurance. About to start IVF and were quoted at roughly $18,000 for the procedure + medications.
Describe Meaghan Bowling's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Carolina Conceptions.
Since we haven't started the IVF process yet, I don't know definitively, but she has definitely recommended that we are more conservative early on because I am just now 30 and there is not much of a reason to be overly aggressive.
What specific things went wrong at Carolina Conceptions?
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Carolina Conceptions.
There was a lack of communication regarding base-line ultrasounds, which unfortunately complicated 2-3 cycles. We figured it out though. :)

Really like Dr. Bowling, did a great job explaining everything. I have been a challenging client for her as most of of my treatments have not gone as planned. Dr. Bowling has always explained what next steps look like and how we are going to move forward.... I like Dr. Bowling, but it get very confusing when you see multiple doctors.... I would suggest being able to meet all of them and choose who your primary doctor will be. This will lessen the confusion with results and next steps.
You will see all the doctors in the clinic [Carolina Conceptions], it can get confusing when each of them tells you something different.... [The nursing staff are] Very friendly, always willing to answer my questions. Very positive and wished us luck after each and every appointment....

Dr. Bowling added a personal touch to her treatment. I felt like she really cared about our success and was patient and caring when we met and I would share concerns and become emotional from past experiences. She also performed a hysteroscopy and walked me to the operating room. She met with my husband and provided a full explanation of her findings as well. She went above and beyond my expectations for providing a personal, yet very professional, consultation and service throughout the process...
The [Emory] clinic is very clean and organized. I usually didn't have to wait long for my scheduled appointments. A couple of appointments I waited around 20 minutes if they waiting room was full. The front office staff are very friendly and would let the nurses know when I arrived. I skipped my nurse consultation for an overview of shot protocol which also provided the financial planning consultation...

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meaghan Bowling at Emory University Reproductive Center?
Schedule an appointment to meet with her before beginning the process. She is kind and willing to discuss the entire process and answer any questions you may have. I'd also find out what her on-call schedule is so you can make sure she's available when scheduling the retrieval/transfer. The dates and timing are very dependent on the timing of the cycle but it's good to know ahead of time. If she's not scheduled to provide transfers/retrievals the day you're scheduled one of her colleagues will be there and they're all really great as well.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Meaghan Bowling at Emory University Reproductive Center?
She made time to meet and speak with me before beginning a new cycle. She'd stop and say hello and ask how things were going when I was in the office and she would pass by. Dr. Bowling called me directly, not a nurse, to let me know about my positive pregnancy test.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Emory University Reproductive Center.
I always knew I'd hear from a nurse later in the day. If I had any questions I could call the office and a nurse would return my call by the end of the day. I could also message them online via Emory Portal and my emails were always responded to by the end of day.

The clinic is very clean and organized. I usually didn't have to wait long for my scheduled appointments. A couple of appointments I waited around 20 minutes if they waiting room was full. The front office staff are very friendly and would let the nurses know when I arrived. I skipped my nurse consultation for an overview of shot protocol which also provided the financial planning consultation. Because of that I was never billed during the process and received a call from Emory's billing department demanding payment. I had inquired to the nurses and the financial consultant for the office during my visits and they assured me someone would contact to schedule payment or financing options. That never happened so I ended up having to take care of everything in a rushed manner to avoid getting sent to a collection agency. This aspect would be the weakest area for the office. I don't believe the business manager runs a very tight ship in that regard. Had I known, I would have called the financing company on my own and made arrangements during my cycle.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Meaghan Bowling at Emory University Reproductive Center.
I financed a fresh cycle with frozen and ICSI for around $11,000. My insurance covers labs so I didn't need to include those in my loan.
