Dr Link is brilliant. She is so smart. She really takes the time to explain what is happening / what may happen. I saw her before my IUIS, after we failed them and now as we wait to start ivf. I feel like she is being as aggressive with my treatment as I allow. She takes the time to hear my concerns as well as take my input. She’s a breath of fresh air. I know she is doing her best to get me the results we want ( get pregnant and carry to term) .

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Megan Link at University of Utah?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. She will explain them!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Megan Link at University of Utah?
Dr. Link is so kind. She spent serious time with my husband and I. She made sure all my questions were answered. During difficult procedures she made sure there were properly trained staff available to help me through discomfort. She has a calm demeanor. She also gave me contact information for all the people who I might need to be in touch with for the next step. She’s prompt about responding to my emails. I feel like I’m a priority with her care.
Describe the protocols Megan Link used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
We started with letrozole. Maybe 5 mg on days 3-7. I responded for a while and then didn’t. So we increased it to 7.5 and stayed steady there. I always ovulated . Then again I stopped. At this point we were just doing TIC. I’d go in for an ultrasound on day day 11-13. After a few more months I stopped ovulating even with the 7.5 mg letrozole and the metformin. We added clomid to the mix and lowered my letrozole. My side effects ( hot flashes) were so bad I asked to be taken off. We finally are up to 10 mg letrozole and 1000mg metformin. I triggered for 1 of our TIC and for al 4 of our IUIs with ovidrel. Always 36 hours before procedure. I added progesterone only to my last IUI.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Sara Tollstrup)
Sara was the NP I saw after all my ultrasounds. She always took time with me to make sure I understood the outlines plan . She was always on top of things and always was quick to get back to me with answers to questions.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
This place is great. It’s just about finding the Doc that best meets your needs. Once that was set I was golden . It’s ok to shop around or transfer care. I did. I’m so happy I found a doc that fit my needs
Describe the costs associated with your care under Megan Link at University of Utah.
In Utah fertility treatments are not covered by insurance. However this clinic offers a self pay discount. I think it’s around 30% There’s the cost for ultrasounds IUI Hsg Semen analysis Ovidrel letrozole. It adds up but the discount helps. Luckily the meds aren’t too pricey aside from the ovidrell
Describe Megan Link's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
My docs prefer to do eset. They believe it’s safer and that the outcome is more viable than multiple transfers

How was your experience with Megan Link at University of Utah?
Dr. Link is so loving, dedicated, and optimistic. We were diagnosed with male factor infertility and diminished ovarian reserve. Our first IVF cycle was not successful. However, what we loved about her was that she let us know from the beginning that due to our situation, that would be the most likely option, that it would be unsuccessful. My husband and I wanted to proceed, regardless of our chances. Dr. Link proceeded with optimism and gave us our best possible shot. When that didn't work, she comforted us. She called me a few times in the following weeks, and she brought us into the clinic to go over more options to grow our family. She has never given up on us and works tirelessly to help us accomplish our dream.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Megan Link at University of Utah?
Don't be afraid to ask lots of questions, she is willing to spend as much time as you need explaining things as you need.

We proceeded with injections to prepare fpr egg retrieval. Gonal F, cetrotide, menopur. Our doctor also prescribed growth hormone injections since i had a diminished ovarian reserve.
Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Lisa)
Our nurses took time to explain everything in detail, review medications, and really held our hand through the whole process.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
Very patient oriented and sensitive. They are very responsive to messages. We have always gotten back to see our provider in a timely manner. The only thing I got say as a weakness is that the waiting area is in much need of a renovation. But other than that, our patient experience had been positive.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Megan Link at University of Utah.
We were lucky to have our insurance cover a lot. The most expensive part for us was a tese a d microtese surgery that my husband needed. We spent $12,000 on those surgeries. We spent $4,000 on medications, and after what our insurance covered of the IVF cycle we paid $1,900.

Dr Links bedside manner was AMAZING. and that is an understatement. She explained everything from start to finish and made sure we felt comfortable and answered all of our questions. She took her time with us and not once did we feel rushed. We had certain things we wanted to do after the transfer and she was completely okay with that.... We went into our appointment thinking we were going to transfer 2 embryos. Dr link explained to us the risk of doing so and let us know why it wasn’t best to do so regarding our situation.

How was your experience with Megan Link at University of Utah?
I don’t have one complaint about Dr. Link. She was amazing. She explained everything in detail and took her time taking care of us. She made sure we felt comfortable and allowed us to do things that we felt were necessary during our transfer. She was kind and patient and understanding.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Megan Link at University of Utah?
Be prepared to never want to see another doctor. Our appointment was set months out because she is so well liked.

Describe your experience with your nurse at University of Utah. (Assigned nurse: Heidi ?)
The nurse Heidi was awesome as well. She made sure I had a calendar well in advance. And explained everything so well. We left her office feeling confident we knew what to do. We also knew that if we had any questions we could call her or shoot her a message and we would hear back in a timely manner.
Describe your experience with University of Utah.
Everyone at the clinic was friendly and professional. We knew we could talk to any of the nurses or staff, and they would be willing to help us. The only downfall is that the doctors work by week. So if our transfer fell on a week that Dr. Link wasn’t doing the transfer we would have a different doctor do the transfer. Or we could push our transfer schedule back to make sure we got the doctor we wanted
Describe the costs associated with your care under Megan Link at University of Utah.
Our total round of IVF was just about $15,000. Our first transfer didn’t work, then with Dr. Link we did a FET. That cost right around 7,000. We have frozen embryos which is about $500 a year. And we also have frozen sperm which is about $500 a year as well.

How was your experience with Megan Link at University of Utah?
We had a few sets backs getting the whole process started but each time, Dr. Link made sure to do follow ups and adjusted the cycle as needed. She was very thorough with descriptions and knowledgable in mine and my partner's specific case. She was pleasant to talk to and showed great compassion when going over our pregnancy history.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Megan Link at University of Utah?
Go in there with your questions written down on a piece of paper and be ready to receive a ton of information but don't worry, she will always go back over it or give it to you again if you don't remember it. She also gives plenty of examples to show what to kind of expect.

Describe your experience with University of Utah.
The clinic itself is on the smaller side but they have it set up in an organized manner and uses every bit of space they have very efficiently. As for weaknesses, I don't really have any complaints. All of the personel that I dealt with were amazing, compassionate given the nature of the office, and knowledgable. You can see that they are all very dedicated to their jobs.
Describe Megan Link's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
I completely agree with the single embryo transfer approach that Dr. Link takes. As someone who has high risk pregnancies, it is less riskier for something to go wrong.

Describe the protocols Megan Link used in your cycles at University of Utah and their degree of success.
Due to my age Dr. Link said we will try three IUI's and if they were unsuccessful we would move to in vitro in may. We would increase the Clomid as needed.

Because I was 41 after three IUI's in vitro was the next step and recommended in order to be more aggressive due to age.
