How was your experience with Mira Aubuchon at MCRM?
Dr. Aubuchon was a very kind and knowledgeable doctor. Although I had complications, she took great care of me and explained all risks. I do wish I would have known the concern of not getting my ovary cauterized. The nurses acted like it wasn’t a big deal, but ended up resulting in emergency surgery the next week.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Mira Aubuchon at MCRM?

Describe the protocols Mira Aubuchon used in your cycles at MCRM and their degree of success.
At first, Dr. Aubuchon had me on 75 units of Gonal F and Menopur. However, when I went to my apt, my eggs had barely grown. At that point, she had me give myself 325 units of Gonal and doubled my Menopur. When I went 3 days later, my eggs still needed to grow more. I went back 2 more days and I had about 40 eggs maturing so they cancelled my fresh transfer and had my egg retrieval 3 days later. I had 37 eggs retrieved, but only 2 made it to day 5.
Describe your experience with your nurse at MCRM. (Assigned nurse: Jen H)
My coordinator made me feel like my questions and concerns did not matter. I felt like I was on an assembly line being passed to the next station. She told me I had to wait an additional month for transfer because I did not get on the schedule in time even though I told her 6 weeks in advance.
Describe your experience with MCRM.
The office staff is amazing! The financial team is very confusing. My egg retrieval was 5 months ago and I’m still not sure what I owe from it. It took them 3 months just to submit to my insurance. I feel like the coordinators have too much on their plate. I never felt important because mt questions or concerns were just a bother.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Mira Aubuchon at MCRM.
I’m not sure since the financial team still has not sent me a bill after paying my deposit.
Describe Mira Aubuchon's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at MCRM.
My dr advises you to only do a single
Embryo transfer. She enoucraged me to do both because I had a 2cc and 3cc with no genetic testing. I am 10 weeks with a single baby.
