I hadn't ovulated in so so long. He [Dr Peter Ahlering] gave me clomid and progesterone to make that happen. While doing that he helped me to understand PCOS. Once I finally understood it, I could do my part and try to help. Knowing how the disease effects me...I was able to loose lots of weight and do the proper things for my benefit. Also, my husband was put on clonid and antioxidants to raise his counts. Also referred him to urologist for vericoseal.
All strengths [for MCRM-Chesterfield]!!! The communication is excellent!!! The emails, the follow ups, the phone calls, sharing your test results with you...it's just all so refreshing!... Emails late at night...phone appointments when you can't make it in to see him...you name it. YOU are the priority!!!... I hadn't ovulated in so so long.

Confident in his [Dr. Ahlering] abilities and on the cutting edge of the newest technology. He loves what he does. Makes you feel comfortable and takes the time to talk to you, never rushes. Sometimes jumps around when you talk to him- battling ideas/working problems but it can lead to confusion...Recommended tese for MFI but numbers went up so we didn't use it. Resulted in no normal embryos. Wish we had stuck with original protocol...
Wonderful team, great facility. They [MCRM] try to make the experience as easy, convenient and comfortable as possible....[Nurse] So sweet and truly caring. She went out of her way to take care of me when risk of OHSS was high. A great listener...Some minor paperwork was lost. Send to be miscommunication between accounting and coordinator/ doctor regarding what procedures are necessary...Sincere, geniuine interactions with the entire staff, from the accountant all the way to Dr.

Wonderful team, great facility. They try to make the experience as easy, convenient and comfortable as possible. I would look into their success numbers more- a higher pregnancy rate is based almost only in transferring viable embryos (PGS testing). Not everyone will get a viable embryo to transfer.
What specific things went wrong at MCRM Fertility?

Dr. A [Peter Ahlering] is easy to talk to and it's obvious he genuinely cares about his patients.... Expect that some of your appointments will be behind schedule. He is thorough and likes to spend as much time with each individual patient as needed, so it's not uncommon to have an appointment be behind schedule. Sometimes my wife would wait for up to 30 minutes.
My wife loves our coordinator [at MCRM-Chesterfield] which makes the entire process a heck of a lot easier. I am not a fan of needles, so I struggled with blood draws. Lindsay helped me feel at ease and I am happy to report I stopped passing out. She makes my wife feel comfortable every single time she is there.... I believe we paid about 30,000 for meds, two retrievals and one transfer.
How was your experience with Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
He was great. My wife was comfortable and so was I. I went there for my semen analysis before we met with him, and I knew I'd like the organization because of the staff. Dr. A runs a happy facility. He is willing to spend as much time with you as needed, which is great (except when he's running behind because of it).

Dr Ahlering spoke with us several times at length on the phone. Gave us our options and even referred us to a closer clinic should we choose to try IUI first to save us on travel... So far we are very pleased with Dr Ahlering. We were impressed he would refer us somewhere else for an IUI as we felt he was thinking of our best interest. We ended up naturally pregnant immediately after seeing him, however we lost the pregnancy and are deciding how to proceed.
Our diagnostic testing [at MCRM] for both my husband and myself was around $500...The majority of our contact was setting up the appointment and lab draws. Since our miscarriage we have heard from Jennifer Bader asking how we are and that they are thinking of us. I'm pleasantly surprised at the level of compassion...We have only had diagnostic labs/testing.

My only complaint about Dr A [Peter Ahlering]is that he can sometimes get distracted or sidetracked, so it's best to write down your questions before meeting with him. Other than that, I literally can't think of anyone else I'd change about MCRM and Dr A.... He is kind, funny and compassionate. He always makes time to meet with you personally and answer questions.
[The nurse at MCRM is] Incredibly understanding and patient, deeply passionate about helping her patients. She made every visit less scary and made every question easy to ask. My coordinator was invaluable!... There are specific cycle weeks, so be prepared to be on birth control to get your cycle ready with theirs. The staff is friendly. Dr. A is thorough, so it's not uncommon to be behind schedule/late to appointments, but it's because he's always (always) wanting to be sure you fully understand everything. Amazing place!

Dr. Ahlering was a wonderful doctor! We felt confident with him and even when things didn't go as planned the first round, he met with us and talked about the reasons why and a plan for the next round...

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr Ahlering and the entire staff at MCRM are wonderful. My husband and I met with Dr. Ahlering to discuss are options and next steps and we both left the roughly hour long appointment feeling like we knew more about the IVF process than we did after completing an entire IVF cycle at a different fertility facility....We are still in the planning stages of my treatment but Dr. Ahlering has already prescribed my husband Lertrozole and HCG to help increase his sperm count.
The clinic is hard to find the first time if you follow the directions that google maps gives. The clinic has so many technological advances, like the embryoscope, and the staff is so caring and encouraging that I feel less worried about going through the IVF process a second time after my failed cycle at a different clinic....Dr Ahlering and the entire staff at MCRM are wonderful.

Very educated and thorough explaining medical procedures and options. We spent an hour with him [Dr. Peter Ahlering] the first visit. Although we have been unable to see him since starting treatment, we have had questions answered through our corrdinator which work out just fine.... So far my husband has had an in depth semin analysis, I had blood work and ultrasounds: we decided to do ovidril with the letrozole and after one month with that we have done IUI once

Shawnie [a nurse at MCRM] sometimes came across as rude or that she was bothered by my emails and questions.... A couple times that I needed bloodwork, Shawnie did not call in orders to Quest.

I had some unexpected costs such as the blood work ($3000 worth) a previous clinic I went to was very through about the costs and my insurance coverage including a sit down with the insurance coordinator, they didn’t do this obviously.

[Dr. Peter Ahlering] was easy to understand, he expressed sympathy when needed and I learned a lot about myself thanks to him...would have loved to see him more than what we did...made us part of their family from day one thru the 4yrs of trying to conceive...[he] diagnosed me with PCOS(I've never heard of this), but he explained ways to help combat this problem
[The staff at MCRM Fertility was] so personable, empathetic and so in tuned with my husband and I...kept us in the loop...they made us feel like family...make sure you keep up with emails, bills, quotes etc...my insurance covered some costs but my deposit was $2100 and medication and husband's surgery was approximately $5-6,000...
How was your experience with Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
When it all boils down, Peter is someone I would recommend to anyone having fertility issues because when explaining things to us it was easy to understand, he expressed sympathy when needed and I learned a lot about myself thanks to him. I would have loved to see him more than what we did, but we understood he has other patients. There was a time i had to be seen by Aubucha and she was so cold! She couldn't answer basic questions and not as gentle as Peter.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
I would tell them to ask questions even if you think you understand and be honest because my husband held back initially which didn't help, but Peter made him comfy enough to disclose issues.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
There's so much I can say about Dr. Ahlering and his staff! Everyone was so personable, empathetic and so in tuned with my husband and I. Hand holding and hugs as well as crying with us when we finally became pregnant and when we miscarried. I can go on and on about how they made us part of their family from day one thru the 4yrs of trying to conceive-we loved every step, especially because they were kept us in the loop.
Describe the protocols Peter Ahlering used in your cycles at MCRM Fertility and their degree of success.
Its been a while, but the first thing he told me was I have a high ovarian reserve but have never been pregnant as well as my husband had little to no motility. My husband had to undergo a biopsy which resulted in 2 vials of usable sperm. Prior to egg retrieval they started me BCP for about a month then follistim, menopur and cetrotide. Weekly visits came with this to monitor growth of my follicles, but even with medical being increased my follicles never grew, so the cycle was terminated! This is when Peter diagnosed me with PCOS(I've never heard of this), but he explained ways to help combat this problem including metformine. I changed my eating and lifestyle completely so when we started a new cycle, I was prepared and the medication actually worked this timely! In addition to the above medication, I took my trigger shot of Lupron before retrieval and afterwards I ended up in the hospital for 5days due to OHSS...Once I recovered, we moved forward with the transfer and then acupuncture plus estrogen patches followed by progesterone in oil injection daily with endometrin inserts resulting in my very first pregnancy!
Describe your experience with your nurse at MCRM Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Courtney(cannot remember her last name))
From the Phlabotomist to Dr. Alhering himself, they made us feel like family! Courtney specifically became more than a coordinator to us and the compassion she showed us showed we were not just a number. She cried with us when she called us withe the good news about our pregnancy and cried even harder when it resulted in a miscarriage. She keeps in touch even after she no longer works there.
Describe your experience with MCRM Fertility.
Overall, I'd recommend this facility to anyone looking for a professional and price efficient way to start a family, however make sure you keep up with emails, bills, quotes etc...I personally hadn't had a problem, but in MCRM's Facebook group more than half of the people have complaints about billing issues and misinformation. You may also end up with a coordinator who isn't personable and even rude, so make sure you speak up
Describe the costs associated with your care under Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility.
Luckily, my insurance covered some costs but my deposit was $2100 and medication and husband's surgery was approximately $5-6,000
What specific things went wrong at MCRM Fertility?
  • Provided conflicting information
Describe the specific things that went wrong at MCRM Fertility.
The one time I had to see a Dr other than Peter, she told me I had a cyst on my right ovary(which it was on my left) and that she would need to cancel my cycle! I was furious, so I reached out to my coordinator to confirm and she apologized. There was another issue with paying for anesthesia-we were to receive a call the day before retrieval to pay, but we never got one so the day of the procedure still nothing. I got a call 2 months later

My first ERA was done by [Dr. Ahlering]. He did 4 biopsies to get sample (see prior review) and we found out several weeks later did not get enough tissue. These were painful - having now had a baby via induction, I would rank the ERA as painful as the insertion of the balloon to dilate your cervix during an induction...Ahlering listened to my requests, and after the screw up with the first ERA...the office covered the next ERA and did an off cycle FET.
after the screw up with the first ERA [at MCRM] (despite 4 attempts, insufficient sample; nurse failed to call and tell me to come back for another attempt) the office covered the next ERA and did an off cycle FET...My next ERA was covered by MCRM because of this error...It was great, and resulted in a live birth...$10,500 retrieval; $1200 add ons, $1500 5 years embryo storage...Billing issues - but sometimes they worked out in our favor. Doctors are amazing at what they do - the success rates alone speak to that. You do have to stay on top of the nurses and the eIVF portal system is awful. (Q121) which of the following did your treatment with the  include?
How was your experience with Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
ERA: I am very glad we did the ERA. At the time they were running a clinical trial so it was free except for the medication. My first ERA was done by Ahlering. He did 4 biopsies to get sample (see prior review) and we found out several weeks later did not get enough tissue. These were painful - having now had a baby via induction, I would rank the ERA as painful as the insertion of the balloon to dilate your cervix during an induction. My next ERA was covered by MCRM because of this error and was done by Dr Aubuchon. It was amazing - no more painful than a pelvic exam - so much so that I insisted on hugging her afterwards which was probably awkward because I wasn't wearing pants. Because of the ERA issue, the clinic did our FET off cycle. It was great, and resulted in a live birth.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
Trust them - but don't be afraid to push back if needed.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility?
This is an update to a prior review - the review was after my first ERA but before my embryo transfer. Ahlering listened to my requests, and after the screw up with the first ERA (despite 4 attempts, insufficient sample; nurse failed to call and tell me to come back for another attempt) the office covered the next ERA and did an off cycle FET.
Describe the protocols Peter Ahlering used in your cycles at MCRM Fertility and their degree of success.
Standard protocol - honestly probably could have personally used another day on stims. Of 7 eggs, 4 were mature, all fertilized, all 4 made it to day 3 and 2 to day 5. They are currently frozen. Prior retrieval was done elsewhere (13 eggs, 3 fertilized, 3 day 3, 1 day 5) and we moved the one day 5 embryo to MCRM as they had much higher success rates for FET. Resulted in live birth.
Describe your experience with your nurse at MCRM Fertility. (Assigned nurse: Rachel)
FET - Rachel; very nice IUI - Christina. Honestly the Poppy troll costume when we learned the IUI had failed kinda messed with my head (It was Halloween though, so . . .) Egg retrieval -

Describe the costs associated with your care under Peter Ahlering at MCRM Fertility.
$10,500 retrieval; $1200 add ons, $1500 5 years embryo storage
Describe Peter Ahlering's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at MCRM Fertility.
eSET - very happy with outcome. Asked to transfer lowest graded embryo and after hearing reasons Ahlering was very supportive.

[Dr. Ahlering] was nice, spent a lot of time with us. He seemed fine, pushed IVF a bit as if it were the only option. I have had 4 miscarriages, and my husband asked him if there was a counselor we could speak with. His answer was no and that we just needed to keep going and push on through...[Dr. Peter Ahlering wasn't] looking into why I kept losing babies, just how to get me pregnant the fastest...I liked Dr. Ahlering. The staff on the other hand gave me really bad vibes. They were pushing packages of IVF like they were tanning packages, and the “sales” staff just didn’t seem genuine in my opinion. One had pictures of birds all over her office, so I asked about them. Her response was “oh I don’t even like birds. But the women that come here are so emotional and sensitive about everything that I just picked decorations no one can get offended by.” Uhhh, what?

This clinic is the easy (but expensive) option. If you just can’t get pregnant without a reason why, and want a baby fast, you could go here. They weren’t looking into why I kept losing babies, just how to get me pregnant the fastest.

Describe your experience with MCRM Fertility.
Did not care for the clinic. They push IVF SO hard without looking into why you aren’t getting pregnant or staying pregnant. They sell IVF like they are tanning packages, and obviously push towards the most expensive one.

He [Dr. Ahlering] was able to do a consultation and let myself and my husband know our issues within an hour. We had seen another doctor before that did not know what the problem was....We did IVF. We did everything like a normal ivf cycle. It ended up in not gettimg pregnant even with a normal tested embryo. He did a followup call with us and suggested an ERA test and was hopeful for next cycle.... He is a talker haha. That is a good thing though because he wants his patients to know the science
I love MCRM. The drive there for egg retrieval and transfer are mot bad. It is great that they have an office here in Tulsa. I love that I can have conference calls with Dr. A and message him on the portal.... [Cost of Treatment] Around $20,000 with medication... He [Dr. Ahlering] was able to find out our fertility issues by looking at our test results when other doctors couldn't. He was always pleasant and let us know about the science behind everything.
