Success w/ Doc Too early to know
I have never felt so cared for by a physician before...we felt so much more at peace because of how in depth [Dr. Merry Lynn Mann] was at explaining our diagnosis and prognosis with treatment...We had 2 hours of just talking with her...She did not rush us at all and never mentioned money. She was not pushy...answered all of our questions.
The clinic’s [Alabama Fertility Specialists (formerly ART Fertility Program of Alabama)] communication is unmatched. I’ve never had an office that was so great at responding so timely. Their attitudes are always positive. They never make you feel dumb or like you are a burden...[Nurses are] Professional. Kind. Compassionate. Upbeat...Around $14,000 for egg retrieval, transfer, and genetic testing.
