Dr.Greene was approachable and understanding throughout all of our treatments. After our egg retrieval none made it past day 2 and I felt like he was able to share that disappointment with us...also able to talk about next steps without making it intimidating while honoring what we had just been through and the failure we experienced...explains why he is changing protocol and is able to discuss what did not work after a failed cycle.
[Conceptions Reproductive Associates] did a really great job with scheduling and remaining flexible. I was able to go to 3 different locations...They would schedule me for labs and ultrasounds at whatever location was most convenient for me and this was incredibly important given the number of appointments we had. The people in the labs were great...all of the nurses are helpful, compassionate and communicative. I felt like they took time to really talk to me and put me at ease throughout my treatments.
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr.Greene made my husband and I feel very comfortable. He is warm and thorough while remaining open about what outcomes could potentially be. He also explains why he is changing protocol and is able to discuss what did not work after a failed cycle. We both really appreciated the way that he approached our failed IVF cycle and he was able to talk about it and share the disappointment with us while remaining hopeful.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene is very knowledgeable and approachable. He will answer any questions and is always available via email.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr.Greene was approachable and understanding throughout all of our treatments. After our egg retrieval none made it past day 2 and I felt like he was able to share that disappointment with us. He also approached the situation delicately and directly which we appreciated. I felt like he was also able to talk about next steps without making it intimidating while honoring what we had just been through and the failure we experienced.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
I have PCOS and prior to egg retrieval my Menopur to encourage egg growth as we were hoping for them to develop more and were nearing 2 weeks on medications. We ended up going in for retrieval shortly thereafter because he did not want me to have OHSS. I felt like he really monitored me progression to keep me healthy while getting the best results. I was also taking Cetrotide to prevent ovulation.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Veronica )
Veronica and all of the nurses are helpful, compassionate and communicative. I felt like they took time to really talk to me and put me at ease throughout my treatments.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I felt like they did a really great job with scheduling and remaining flexible. I was able to go to 3 different locations which was very convenient for me and they were completely supportive. I did this because my doctor is in Lafayette but my job is in Denver and it was easier for me to go to the Denver location for treatments. They would schedule me for labs and ultrasounds at whatever location was most convenient for me and this was incredibly important given the number of appointments we had. The people in the labs were great and so were the nurse. I have nothing but positive things to say.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
For IVF with genetic testing and more that 10 eggs retrieved we payed around $26,000. We did not transfer any embryos as the eggs fertilized but did not make it past day 2 due to an egg quality issue.
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Dr.Greene prefers to transfer one embryo but is open to transferring two depending on the situation. He is not willing to transfer more than two due to health risks.

[Dr. Robert Greene] seemed excited to work with us and help us grow a family. He remembered little details about our lives which is impressive with the amount of patients he has...data driven which we appreciated. He provides facts, studies and information from personal experience when creating a plan for you...We were diagnosed as “unexplained” and did not have any reason to suspect I would be a poor responder...After the first cycle they saw poor egg quality and poor sperm quality...
With multiple [Conceptions Reproductive Associates] clinics throughout the Denver area, appointments are easy! I could visit the location closest to me for daily appointments which was a huge help when balancing IVF and a full time job...[nurse] even helped me with finding some donated medication to help when my pharmacy didn’t ship my medication on time...Self pay is about $16k excluding medications. My medication was between $3,000-$4,000 per IVF cycle.

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
We did an IUI with Letrozle. This cycle failed. We proceeded with an antagonist IVF cycle in 1 month later. We were diagnosed as “unexplained” and did not have any reason to suspect I would be a poor responder. We started with 1 vial menopur and 150 gonal f per day. After 4 days this was increased to 3 menopur and 150 gonal f. We retrieved 11 eggs, 9 mature and ended with 1 pgs tested embryo. We went immediately into a second cycle with testosterone gel and bcp, 2 menopur, 225 gonal f and .8 HGH per day. We had a much better response and retrieved 13 eggs, 11 mature and 2 pgs tested embryos. After the first cycle they saw poor egg quality and poor sperm quality. We are waiting to schedule our FET.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Lindsay Dole)
My IVF nurse, Lindsay, was wonderful. She was always very warm and friendly. She responded quickly to my emails and calls and even helped me with finding some donated medication to help when my pharmacy didn’t ship my medication on time. She saved me! She also helped us when we were highly stressed over doing a second cycle or not. She was patient and understanding. I can’t thank her enough!
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I would highly recommend Conceptions to anyone looking for a fertility clinic. They are all professional, caring and efficient. With multiple clinics throughout the Denver area, appointments are easy! I could visit the location closest to me for daily appointments which was a huge help when balancing IVF and a full time job. They also have the highest live birth rates in the country and their on site lab is state of the art. I’m very happy with our experience so far.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
Since I am an older patient of Dr. Greene, He understood and explained that treatments and protocols may change. I do remember that between our IUI and IVF cycle Dr. Greene did make sure that my thyroid levels and my PCOS are being treated by constantly getting blood work done and making sure that my medication’s are correct.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Conceptions has been the only clinic that we have experience. Our weight was shorter for a consultation then with other clinics in our area. I would say that having in-house ultrasounds and lab work is wonderful, however sometimes as a self pay patient the cost can be a little hard to swallow
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
My husband and I are self-pay patient so the cost was something that we needed to prepare for. We are hoping that soon our insurance company will cover fertility treatments, but conceptions was willing to work with us on payments.

We didn't always understand what each step was for and why we were necessarily doing it. Strengths for the clinic are that all of the staff we interacted with were very friendly and responsive to any questions we had. Some staff seemed to remember us each time we went so it felt more personalized. Dr. Greene was always so positive!

During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene and medical staff catered treatment to my specific needs. They were always familiar with me and my specific case. The staff always treated me well and remembered me when I was in the office
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
I was diagnosed with Diminished Ovarian Reserve with poor egg quality. As a result, Dr. Green had us do Duo Stimulation. The first round of IVF stimulation meds involved using Omnitrope and Menopur injections the first several days of the cycle in the morning. In the evenings he had me do Gonal-F injections. Part way through the cycle he added a Menopur injection to the evening injections. We then triggered when instructed and had our first egg retrieval. Due to not having any viable embryos from the first round of IVF injections, Dr. Greene changed up the medication protocol for the second round of IVF injections by increasing the amount of Menopur injected during the cycle. We increased the Menopur injections in the morning as well as the evenings. Everything else was essentially the same. It is from this cycle that we were able to get one genetically normal embryo.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Veronica, Cate)
My nurse would be the one to call me every day to inform me of the medication instructions each day. She was very compassionate and responsive to any questions or concerns that I had during the cycles. When I needed more medication she would do her best to see if they had any donated medications they could provide me with as we were self-pay. The nursing staff was very nice each time I went in for my daily blood draw and ultrasound. One nurse and one sonographer would always remember me. One nurse remembered me day to day and even after the transfer she remembered who I was and details about my specific situation.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
We had medication costs, doctor fees, ultrasounds, lab work, coordination fees, trial embryo transfers and other tests to rule out any other potential complications when it came time for the transfer.
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Because we were only able to get one embryo from our two rounds of IVF cycles, we only had the option to transfer one embryo.
What specific things went wrong at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
  • Failed to call with results
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
There was one instance in which I was not called with lab results and whether or not I was good to start medications from the trial embryo transfer cycle. I contacted them (late in the afternoon) and they responded the next morning saying that their analyzer malfunctioned and produced results late. Luckily, I took one medication (it was an estrogen pill) and they said that was good because everything was good to go.

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
During consults or follow ups have an agenda to follow so you make sure you cover all concerns abs questions. I am fairly comfortable with our Dr. But I always seem to freeze up during consultations and lose my voice. An agenda helped keep me on track without becoming too emotional.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene would not proceed with our care until I felt 100% confident in him and trusted his care and his practice. This was not the case at our previous clinics.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
• ERA, SHG, HSG , TET tests prior to transfer Protocol: • Birth control pills the cycle prior to FET - down regulation ▪︎ Lupron injections for 4 weeks – this and birth control work as my down regulation cycle. This combo will shut down (suppress) my ovaries and allows my clinic to control my cycle. ▪︎ Omnitrope injections for 10 days - we added this to my protocol with Sunny due to implantation failure in previous cycles. This drug can help your uterine receptivity become more favorable for an embryo. Essentially this is the welcome party drug for our embryo. ▪︎ Progesterone in oil injections begin 6 days prior to FET and continue through 12 weeks of pregnancy – helps prepare the lining of the uterus and helps maintain a healthy level during pregnancy ▪︎ Estrace pills vaginally twice a day – helps build the endometrium lining nice and thick ▪︎ Vivelle (a.k.a estrogen patches) 1 patch, increased to 4 patches then decreased to 2 - helps build lining ▪︎ Baby aspirin – improves blood flow to implantation site ▪︎ Intralipid Infusion 1 week prior to fet and aging at 7 weeks pregnant Next fet cycle we will repeat an shg and do a microbiome test

Dr. Greene really listened to us and our family goals...[He] was pretty conservative with meds for my egg retrieval, which initially was a bit scary, but everything worked out...If you need something from him, send him an email- he is super responsive via email...I was borderline PCOS, and he was concerned that I would develop OHHS. Because of that, he kept my meds lower, believing that fewer eggs would mean higher quality. He was right
[the Conceptions nurse] basically held my hand through every single step. She answered every single email and calmed all of my fears...Monitoring appointments were easy- I knew I could get in quickly if I went early in the morning...I was so grateful that they ran all the tests and then some. Don't be afraid to advocate for more testing if you think something else should be run..
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
We were a pretty straightforward case, which made our treatment plan pretty standard. Dr. Greene was pretty conservative with meds for my egg retrieval, which initially was a bit scary, but everything worked out. Dr. Greene is super thorough and does a good job checking all the boxes. His transfer nurses (Kristine!) are amazing and super responsive.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
IVF takes so much time, so do not expect this process to go quickly. The timeframes given to you by Dr. Greene are best case scenario. If you need something from him, send him an email- he is super responsive via email. He's also optimistic, so don't be afraid to push him to give you more realistic expectations.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene really listened to us and our family goals. He was responsive to emails, which I appreciated.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
I was on an antagonist protocol with low doses of everything (37.5 of menopur and an equivalent dose of gonal f). I was borderline PCOS, and he was concerned that I would develop OHHS. Because of that, he kept my meds lower, believing that fewer eggs would mean higher quality. He was right- out of 12 eggs, we ended up with 5 PGT normal embryos.

Kristine was so, so kind. She basically held my hand through every single step. She answered every single email and calmed all of my fears. She was my biggest cheerleader, and I will forever be grateful for her.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Conceptions is super thorough when it comes to testing. I was so grateful that they ran all the tests and then some. Don't be afraid to advocate for more testing if you think something else should be run.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Monitoring appointments were easy- I knew I could get in quickly if I went early in the morning. I appreciated this, because it allowed for flexibility with my job.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
We had insurance coverage, so our costs were relatively low. We were very fortunate to never deal with billing.

How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Due to the Covid pandemic, 90% of all our appointments were via telehealth appointments, but he made sure they were warm and inviting and friendly. Even with a technological setback where we couldn't get volume to work, he called in on our landline to speak with us while presenting the slides on the computer. The only time we got to see him in person was during our embryo transfer which was amazing, and made us wish we could've been in the same room with him throughout the entire process. He was genuinely excited for us, took time to explain, to encourage, to include. Everything was well communicated, he made it a point to tell us what we were looking at on the screen, made sure to pause the process (where possible) so my husband could get pictures of our little embryo being shown to us, get videos of the nurse bringing the loaded catheter in, everything that would help us remember and honor our journey. Since you have to have a full bladder for the procedure, I was naturally a little uncomfortable and he cracked a joke that made us all laugh. I warned him that he was in a danger zone for making me laugh and if he kept it up, I might accidentally pee on him. He laughed even more and said that "I fully believe laughter is good for the soul. If laughing gets you this baby and gets me soaked, I'm fully willing to take that one for you!"
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Ask him anything. I have a crazy good immune system and hardly ever get sick and, although I "knew" the answer, I needed his professional reassurance that it wasn't my own body working against me for the failed natural conception or IUIs. He took so much time and explained how my immune system was such a good thing in this case and went into the process of immune issues that would cause problems just so that I would have peace of mind.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene took the time to explain everything, multiple times, if needed in order to give us the level of understanding we wished for. He willingly (and unasked for) tied in artificial insemination of cattle (of which my husband is well versed) into our process to draw parallels we could understand. Our previous doctor would skip over things, seemingly write us off as ignorant and not even knowing the basics of conception, and our questions unimportant, but not with Dr. Greene. Every thought process of ours was critical to him, even just talking out what-if scenarios that were very unlikely but needed discussed for peace of mind. In follow-up appointments, he remembered personal things about us that made us feel important, and memorable, and human and that we were not only patients, but friends he cared about helping.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
Egg retrieval: Menopur 75 units subcutaneously daily as directed (for 15 days, I think) Gonal-f RFF Inject 75- 450iu subcutaneously daily as directed (don't remember the length of time) Ganirelix Acetate 250 mcg, Inject subcutaneously daily as directed Leuprolide - Inject 4mg (0.8ml) subcutaneously at the appropriate time as directed for trigger and repeat the same dose 12 hours later Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), 1000- 10000iu IM as directed for trigger For the FET cycle: Birth control pills for 24 days. Active pills only, no placebo. Lupron for 27 days, 10 units. On Day 1 of the cycle: baby Aspirin (81 mg), Metformin, Vitamin D, and prenatal vitamin throughout the first 3 trimesters, stopping at the advice of my OBGYN. Pregnyl 10000 units, Inject 5000 units IM for trigger before transfer Estrace 2 mg tablet, altered between dosages and whether orally or vaginally until desired hormone level was reached Vivelle-Dot 0.1 mg patches, Applied anywhere from 2-4 patches for the first trimester per doctor's orders Progesterone in Sesame Oil 50 mg, Inject 1.5 ml intramuscular for first trimester, slowly weaning off per doctor's orders I'm sure I'm missing something, but that's as close as I can recall at the moment!
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Lindsay Dole was our egg retrieval nurse, Jessica Rico was our FET nurse)
Lindsay was amazingly caring and thoughtful. I'm a really petite person and when I first walked into the office, she took one look at me said she would write an Rx for 1" needles versus the 1.5" that are usually recommended due to my small stature. It made such an amazing difference during the PIO shots! Jessica was so kind and caring during our FET cycle. When we were confirmed pregnant and came for our 7 week appointment, she saw our names on the check in list she found out which room we were in and stopped by to congratulate us in person. The phlebotomists were so friendly and professional. Linda was an absolute gem and I loved chatting with her during my blood draws. Tammi and Shari would my usual ultrasound techs. Despite the fact they're all up in your business, they made sure to remain professional while not being cold or uncaring. They were warm and friendly and chatted with you in order to keep you informed of what you/they were seeing, etc. Due to Covid, my husband couldn't be in the room but they made sure to allow me to Facetime him and allow him to see/hear what was going on and answered any questions he had during the process. For a few questions I had concerning our embryos and their disposal or storage, embryologist, Hannah, made sure to call me personally to answer my questions and tell me in real time versus an email, their process in order to calm any fears I had. My anesthesiologist, Mr. Higgins was so friendly and jovial. I've never been put under before so he explained everything so clearly and concisely about what would happen, it would feel like, what he was doing/would do, and answered any and all questions my husband and I had. He was professional and yet still made time to get to know me -- turns out he worked in my hometown with my doctor grandfather long before I was born, as well as the doctor who delivered me!
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Highly professional yet friendly. You feel as though you get to know the staff, and they you, and you're not just a random face in a crowd but someone they are excited to see succeed. Everyone goes above and beyond to ask questions to make you feel comfortable and that your experience is a great one. We, honestly, breezed in and out of our cycles with no issues and were a seemingly "easy" case, so we didn't ever run into anything challenging during our time there.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I've never kept detailed track of what cost what, but I know the initial IVF protocol that includes PGT-A screening, ICSI, and frozen embryo transfer (FET): is $17,875 Anesthesia: ~$400 Medications over our entire cycles probably ~$3000-5000 Acupuncture for transfer day - $100 Embryo storage fee: $62.50 a month When speaking with the clinic's pharmacy, they recommended a program that could potentially help with payments based on income levels and went above and beyond to do everything they could to help keep costs as low as possible.
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
We were given the option for a multiple embryo transfer, but we would have to "plead our case" and do a good job with logical reasonings behind why we though it would be a good option, etc. before Dr. Greene would approve it for us. We didn't wish to do more than one embryo since we didn't know how my body would respond to a pregnancy, so kind of N/A for us

Doctor Greene is incredibly science-minded...sent emails with evidence/science behind his decisions. None of our appointments felt rushed, and he always was prepared with information to share and test results...I added on HGH, intralipids, and probiotics to my FET protocol. Some of these are more experimental and we discussed them together...the nurses handle everything wonderfully and he was always responsive by email...
[nurses at Conceptions Reproductive Associates] Lindsay (ER) and Jessica (FET) were so great!! They answered all of my emails...if a question was urgent the nurse line always called me back promptly. Lindsay was so reassuring during the egg retrieval process when I had a million questions...phlebotomy was amazing. No pain, always made me feel comfortable, hardly ever had to wait more than a few minutes...
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Doctor Greene is incredibly science-minded. He is following the latest research to give his patients the best possible outcome. He is very confident and warm. We only had three appointments to discuss treatment throughout, but the nurses handle everything wonderfully and he was always responsive by email.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Trust the process! He knows what he’s doing.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Lindsay, Jessica)
Lindsay (ER) and Jessica (FET) were so great!! They answered all of my emails. I think they each worked 4 days a week and I could never remember which day off it was but if a question was urgent the nurse line always called me back promptly. Lindsay was so reassuring during the egg retrieval process when I had a million questions!
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Strengths: phlebotomy was amazing. No pain, always made me feel comfortable, hardly ever had to wait more than a few minutes. Weaknesses: the front office people in Littleton never wore masks when walking through the lobby or to the kitchen area. Handyman(?) also wasn’t wearing a mask walking around the office. Very disrespectful when you had ME sign a consent to not get covid or I’d be out $15,000. Front desk woman at Lafayette always wore her mask below her nose. Haven’t seen her in the last few weeks but always made me uncomfortable. I’m vaccinated and a nurse and wear my mask properly I expect that same respect from all healthcare professionals.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Probably close to $20,000
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Dr. Greene (I believe?) assessed this on a case by case basis. I initially wanted to try for twins, and after discussing the risks, I decided to go with one embryo. I am glad I trusted Dr. Greene’s advice because he is the expert.
What specific things went wrong at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
Describe the specific things that went wrong at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
They ordered doxycycline when I am allergic to it. I am not upset because it is also my responsibility to check everything over and we changed it to another antibiotic.

Dr. Greene, at first seemed very professional and very sympathetic and almost like eager to help us. After 3 failed IUI treatments and being told of very high chances, [he] followed the same protocol for all 3 IUI's. It didn't make sense as to why he wouldn't change something if it didn't work the first or second time. He requested bloodwork for everything. I only saw and talked to him 2x, which were scheduled consultations with him other than that I worked directly with different nurses for everything else. He did explain PCOS diagnosis very well and I appreciated it.
Nurse [of Conceptions Reproductive Associates] was always friendly and if she didn't have answers would call back later. She answered emails very quickly...Clinic strengths was organization, appointments were easy to make and availability was always available. Weaknesses was cost is very high, the bloodwork needed almost everytime you go in adds up quick, no payment plans available services are needed to be paid upfront. No sympathy when I would call in on CD1 or when I would go in, the staff knew I was in again because I had experienced a failed cycle, it made me feel uncared for.

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
At first we had bloodwork and tests done to diagnosis. Tests were hormone levels, ultrasounds, HSG, seman analysis for my husband m and medication was given to start period. When period started, I called on CD 1 to go in for bloodwork and an ultrasound, then after results were in I was given letrozole 5mg for 5 days. An ultrasound was scheduled on CD12 for follicle sizes. On the first round of IUI, my follicles did not grow much so they upped my dosage of letrozole to 7.5mg for another 5 days -they called this the step approach. Then I went back in on CD12 and I had one follicle size 18mm. I was told to use trigger shot the next day for IUI 36 hours later. First IUI failed. Period came and called on CD1 again, went in for bloodwork and ultrasound and was told I had a cyst size 4.6x2.7cm on left ovary, the cycle was cancelled. They told me to call when period arrived again or on CD35. I called in CD35 since no period yet, went in for bloodwork and was then given prescription provera to start period. Called CD1, went in for bloodwork and ultrasound. Letrozole at 7.5mg was given and went back on CD 12 for scan, had 3 follicles size 14,14,15 lining at 5.5 was told to trigger next day and IUI was scheduled. 2nd IUI failed. Called in on CD1 for 3rd IUI attempt, same protocol was followed. Follicles were 16,17,12 and lining was at 6.5, told to trigger next day and IUI was scheduled. 3rd IUI failed.

He [Dr. Robert Greene] recorded all our in office sessions so he was able to go back and review us. He took the time to learn about who we are and what we wanted. He was honest and shared his own experiences that made us feel like we mattered...When reviewing test results he broke it down so it was easily understood...When we had a missed miscarriage and had to have a review appointment he was a bit too blunt and seemed a bit aggravated. My husband chocked it up to just being upset about the loss too. He referred to our loss as a failed pregnancy. He did give us a plan and what we needed to do before getting the green light to try again. He was very kind when we had to have a surgery done and did not hesitate to let us try again after that. We did have to have another meeting with him after two cycles of no response. That appointment was had as he really pushed IVF, which we did not feel ready for. He did refer to our loss again as a failed attempt. Which still hurt for me and the chemical pregnancy was not even recognized. He was kind enough to let us take as much time as we need to figure out what we wanted to do. He did let us try another IUI while we were still deciding. He is very proactive when it comes to care but can be very blunt during sensitive times. New Patient Advice
After my missed miscarriage, I had to come in [to Conceptions Reproductive Associates] for a blood draw. My nursing team sat with me while I cried and talked about what was next. I did not feel rushed and I felt like they cared about me...Only one time did they ever forget to call with bloodwork results. I just called the next morning and they gave me the results right then...Each ultrasound was $185, each IUI was $402, each meeting appointment was $225, bloodwork varied between $25 for the Ventipuncture to $200 for blood test, sperm analysis was $75, HSG was $250, SIS was $200. Hysterscopy was $950
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene is extremely knowledgeable about infertility treatments. He was very honest and open when discussing what steps need to be taken. He was proactive and wanted the big picture first. He loads of test and procedures on both my husband and I. When reviewing test results he broke it down so it was easily understood. He was honest and hopeful. When we had a missed miscarriage and had to have a review appointment he was a bit too blunt and seemed a bit aggravated. My husband chocked it up to just being upset about the loss too.

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
For our first IUI We started with the lowest does of letrozole at the CD12 scan there was no follicle growth so instead of wasting the cycle he offered we stair step. So he upped my doseage to 75mg of letrozole. At the new CD12 scan I had responded and we proceeded to trigger that night for a CD14 IUI. He prescribed progesterone suppositories and order me to take them two days after the IUI. After our MMC he ordered for weekly blood draws until beta was zero. Once zero he ordered an SIS. After that procedure based on the results he ordered a hysteroscopy which found scar tissue and a uterine polyp which he removed. He ordered 3 weeks of healing. He kept the same letrozole dose for the next 3 IUIs. He cancelled two cycles due to poor response but did offer extra injectables that I declined.

Dr Greene always made sure we understood the course of treatment and took into consideration our vision of our complete family, not just focused on the first baby (which has yet to happen). Dr. Greene has been patient and easy to contact. When I had a miscarriage, he reached out personally to schedule our follow up and provided next steps.
Clinic is great in general but front desk staff could be more professional. Staff always seem overwhelmed and sometimes talk about other patients at the front desk. It surprised me last time I was in the clinic to hear the receptionist talking about a patients medical issue, using her name, while the waiting room had patients. The clinic also seems a little unorganized and sometimes I feel they don’t treat patients as well as they could.

He [Dr. Robert Greene] recommends removal of polyps and performs the surgery himself. His nurses perform the IUI procedure. There has been a lot of waiting which is frustrating but it seems to me that he follows protocols by the book...He strongly recommends single embryo transplant which is something I have done research on and agree with...He cared about how many kids we want and tailors our therapy to what is best for us. He focused on our personal needs as a couple. He was also compassionate and seems to really care a lot.
I think the biggest concern I have with this clinic [Conceptions Reproductive Associates] is associated with a couple of paperwork related issues. For any new patients - make sure you stay on top of everything and feel free to call them with questions. The staff responds really well to any questions you may have and the nurses are easy to talk to. Just make sure you are an advocate for yourself!...
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
He is on top of the most recent research which is important to me. He has a personal email that he told us we can email him at any time. He even has a blog although does not update it frequently. I have only seen him twice but he is very friendly and intelligent. He seems very passionate about his career and I feel like I can absolutely trust him.

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
He looks at bloodwork and other tests before deciding anything. He looks at HSG, if you are able to ovulate normally, AMH, and as well as male factor. He doesn't jump into performing a biopsy to diagnose endometriosis and recommends pine bark extract which has one study stating it can help. He recommends removal of polyps and performs the surgery himself. His nurses perform the IUI procedure. There has been a lot of waiting which is frustrating but it seems to me that he follows protocols by the book.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
The nurses are wonderful. I like the fact that they perform the IUIs because they are all very gentle and I feel comfortable with them. They are good about responding to my frantic emails or calls. Sometimes some medication related things aren't done on time but if I call the office they respond right away. I really appreciate how compassionate they are. They have a lot of responsibility at this office and if you are a patient here you will get to know them well, which is great because I enjoy seeing them!

I didn't see Dr. Greene as much as I would have liked, but the consultations and treatment plan meetings were very useful. He never seemed rush and always took the time to explain things in detail and answer all of my questions. I always walked away feeling very armed with knowledge about what was next. He was also very responsive to email, but I found his in person responses most thorough. I most appreciated his EXTREMELY thorough understanding
The clinic [Conceptions Reproductive Associates] clearly has individualized treatment plans and you are not just treated with a blanket protocol. However, it is still easy to feel like a number at times when you don't interact with the Dr. very often at all. However, the nurse care and organization is very thorough.... Sarah (egg retrieval nurse) and Jess (embryo transfer nurse) are great and both respond to emails very quickly and efficiently. They have been very compassionate and are continuing to cheer me on after failure.
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
I didn't see Dr. Greene as much as I would have liked, but the consultations and treatment plan meetings were very useful. He never seemed rush and always took the time to explain things in detail and answer all of my questions. I always walked away feeling very armed with knowledge about what was next. He was also very responsive to email, but I found his in person responses most thorough. I most appreciated his EXTREMELY thorough understanding of the science and literature behind his treatment plans. He was very up to date on the most recent studies and always had something new to implement to improve his course of action. The one thing I would say that was frustrating about my experience was that Dr. Greene was extremely optimistic to the point where I felt like a freak case/failure when I didn't fall into the great success rates of the clinic. For example, he asked us how many children we would like to have (2-3) and he told us that he was very confident we would have at least 2 babies from one IVF cycle and each embryo transfer was about an 80% success rate. So, when I had 2 PGS tested embryos from round 1 fail, I felt like something was very wrong with me because I wasn't as successful as he made me feel like I would or should be be. On the other hand, in the midst of the treatment, his optimism was helpful and I always left his office excited and enthusiastic about the plan, so the optimism wasn't all bad!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Know that even if Dr. Greene is very optimistic about the success rates of the clinic, failure does happen. Prepare your questions ahead of time to make sure you are able to remember what to ask in the limited meeting times.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Although meets with Dr. Greene were few and far between, he was very warm and kind. He had a clear understanding of our history and how it was influencing our ability to succeed. When another doctor at CCRM dismissed atypical PCOS symptoms, Dr. Greene paid attention to them and had a different treatment plan.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
2 IUIs with letrazole- he used letrazole instead of clomid because he found better success rates for PCOS patients. (I had 3 failed clomid cycles at CCRM prior to coming to Conceptions). 1st IVF: antagonist protocol with menopur, gonalF, cetrotide, etc. 21 eggs resulting in 2PGS normal embryos. FET 1: hormone replacement cycle (PIO, estrodial pills and patches, lupron). Intralipid infusion, resulted in chemical pregnancy FET2: hormone replacement cycle as above with human growth hormone (omnitrope) added, resulted in negative 2nd IVF: antagonist, similar to first with increased doses of menopur and gonal F, added human growth hormone, 19 eggs retrieved, resulted in 5 PGS normal embryos! ERA biopsy cycle with protocol from FET1, result was pre-receptive Waiting for FET3
Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Sarah E, Jessica R)
Sarah (egg retrieval nurse) and Jess (embryo transfer nurse) are great and both respond to emails very quickly and efficiently. They have been very compassionate and are continuing to cheer me on after failure. They always answer all of my questions (which is a lot). I have found that finding compassionate nurses in this field is actually quite difficult, so I really appreciate them. The only criticism I have about the nursing team as a whole is that if you need something on the weekend, it's hard to get help. There is an emergency line, but what about non-emergencies? A couple times I left a message with the emergency line but still didn't hear back until the week.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
The clinic clearly has individualized treatment plans and you are not just treated with a blanket protocol. However, it is still easy to feel like a number at times when you don't interact with the Dr. very often at all. However, the nurse care and organization is very thorough. Sometimes it would just be nice to be assured that the Dr. reviewed the plan, etc. It is clear that the clinic is very busy and once you're ready to schedule a FET, tell your nurse immediately as dates can fill up. If you're on top of it, though, everything goes smoothly. It also seems like there is a long wait between egg retrieval and FET because they do hysteroscopy and doppler ultrasound in between. I'm not sure if this time can be shortened at all for people who are anxious to get going. As I stated before, getting help on weekends is quite difficult, but overall if you're on top of it and can anticipate questions/issues you might have before the weekend, things are OK.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
IUIs: <$1000 per cycle if I remember correctly IVF 1 including 1 FET and PGS testing of all embryos: about $19,500 + $5000+ medications, additional $ for anesthesia, doppler ultrasound, hysteroscopy FET2: $5100 + about $2500 in medications IVF2 including 1 FET: about $16,000 + $8000+ medications + $2200 PGS embryo testing and ERA biopsy
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Dr. Greene was adamant about single embryo transfer and he explained the risk of multiple pregnancies. He also reiterated the clinic's high success rates with single embryo transfers and said the large majority of patients use PGS testing. He did say if we really wanted to have twins, then we could talk and consider transferring 2.

Dr. Greene is energetic, knowledgeable and supportive. He tells silly jokes and creates a more relaxed space even when there is tension. I appreciated that he responds directly to emails. Unfortunately after two frozen embryo transfers, we have not received the outcome we were hoping for under our care with Dr. Greene. I do not believe that. Dr. Greene is at fault for either loses.
We received a change in protocol [from Conceptions], but only through voicemail. I strongly believe that if there is a change in protocol there needs to be voice recognition of that change. Because of a problem with my phone, I did not receive the protocol change until a week later. I wish there had been more attempts to contact me through email, phone or text and a requirement that they received a confirmation from the patient that protocol needs to be changed.

How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene seemed to know what he was doing and communicated well with me and his team. It was nice to not have to see him often as this helped keep costs lower. His staff was helpful but very much made me feel like they were just going through the motions and not really pulling for me. It was also extremely frustrating when they would give me a written prescription for medication I needed to take the same evening and not just call it in for me. It was frustrating because I would be going back to work and therefore unable to get the prescription to my pharmacy in time to be able to pick it up in my way home. When I would ask for them to just calm it in they would act like it was a HUGE inconvenience for them. It’s insulting when everything is already harder than it should be. It is such a simple thing they can do to help and they choose not to. Dr. Greene was able to diagnose my atypical PCOS so that was a relief but not sure about the rest of it as we are still in process with trying to conceive.

After two failed cycles where I had 25% of my eggs mature on both cycles at retrieval, I never had any embryos make it to freeze...Dr. Greene told me that at 38 with secondary infertility my eggs were “dysmature” and suggested donor eggs. We were devastated...asked for a three day transfer. Dr. Green said no and told me that if my embryos wouldn’t make it in the lab, they would not make it in my uterus. My next clinic made blastocysts but then actually suggested freezing at day three for my final cycle. I’m currently pregnant with a day three embryo.
We spent $20k+ for the first retrieval and about $10k on the second retrieval plus $20k total on meds [at Conceptions Reproductive Associates]...advertises frozen embryo transfer success rates. This implies that you actually get an embryo from retrieval for transfer and is not indicative of per cycle success rates. I wish I had understood this when I was selecting my clinic. I would have skipped conceptions had I understood that point. For women like me with diminished ovarian reserve, embryos are hard to come by so their success rate assumes that you have made a quality embryo to transfer which never happened for me in their lab.
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
If you were young and have a very straightforward case, then he might be able to help you. If yours is more complicated like mine was, go to CCRM or a mini IVF clinic. After two failed cycles where I had 25% of my eggs mature on both cycles at retrieval, I never had any embryos make it to freeze.Dr. Greene told me that at 38 with secondary infertility my eggs were “dysmature” and suggested donor eggs. We were devastated. A friend suggested CCRM. At 39, a year later, CCRM managed to get 100% of my eggs mature at retrieval by letting me follicles go larger than what Dr. Greene considers ideal and changing my protocol. We had success on our first transfer with CCRM and have three more embryos in the freezer.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Realize he has a cookie cutter approach. If you don’t fit it, they will blame your eggs. If you are a complex case or need to go outside the box, go elsewhere. We have trouble making blastocyst, and asked for a three day transfer. Dr. Green said no and told me that if my embryos wouldn’t make it in the lab, they would not make it in my uterus. My next clinic made blastocysts but then actually suggested freezing at day three for my final cycle. I’m currently pregnant with a day three embryo.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr. Greene is very personable.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
We did antagonist twice. If he had let me stim a day longer each time, we would have had more than 3 mature eggs between 2 cycles. At CCRM I had 19 mature eggs from 3 cycles. And I was a year older. Switching to microdose lupron flare at my next clinic was key for my body to produce lots of mature eggs.

He [Dr. Robert Greene] started off by ordering test to find out what we need to do...My wife was told weight loss would help and recommended gastric bypass. Which wasn't fertility but recommended by the Dr...do zero natural remedies other then lose weight...He is very knowledgeable and acts like he truly cares. But the big weakness is. In order to get you to your goal he pushes IVF which is 30k through his practice. Spend money is his main push. No alternatives or different solutions. Just push that high dollar procedure. Even though a IUI worked just as well.
30 k for ivf [at Conceptions Reproductive Associates] when other states and countries are 1/3 of the price...The nurses were great there. Kelis was very kind and straight to the point as well. The only down fall was they were rushed with the info. Like that had to go real quick. Talked real fast while providing information relayed from the Dr...alot of it wasn't covered by insurance so in rough 10k just on blood work and scans. IUI's cost 700 each time.

No alternatives or different solutions. Just push that high dollar procedure. Even though a IUI worked just as well.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Just be prepared to spend money if your insurance doesn't cover fertility. Conceptions are not cheap.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
The place is nice. He is caring and wants to get you there for a price. So they are kind to your needs and straight forward. But to get what you need it's check book numbers. 30 k for ivf when other states and countries are 1/3 of the price.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
He started off by ordering test to find out what we need to do. Analysis of my sperm and wife's area. By doing test, ultra sounds and scans, blood work. Looking for how many eggs and follicle health and size. Monitors the process from before IUI and after and during pregnancy. Then a year of half he starred with the IUI once my wife's tubes were not blocked as initially found in test. Unblocked by natural supplements that were not used by Dr Greene. Finally got pregnant on IUI 2 lost baby 7 weeks in. Dr Greene pushed for IVF from there.

Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
They helped get us to the point were a normal medical Dr would not have. They are knowledgable. Everything is in house except surgeries, convenient. Weaknesses are push high dollar procedures. They do zero natural remedies other then lose weight. As a new patient just expect to poked and prodded alot to get to the root of the problems. Also if you do not have coverage from insurance, expect to pay alot of money. Talking about thousands of dollars. We hit 30k and that's not including IVF. Just bunch of test, analysis, monitoring, ovarian drilling, polyp removal and 2 IUI's.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
Test and blood worked varied by insurance coverage. But alot of it wasn't covered by insurance so in rough 10k just on blood work and scans. IUI's cost 700 each time. Ovarian drilling polyp removal and hospital times was 15k. My wife was told weight loss would help and recommended gastric bypass. Which wasn't fertility but recommended by the Dr. Was additional 20k since alot of it wasn't covered by insurance. Fertility right around 30k not including IVF. Additional work recommended added another 25k totaling cost 55k.

Dr. Greene was friendly and took time to meet with us to discuss our options. We didn't feel rushed in the meetings. ... We did one IUI under Dr. Greene with letrozole. It did not yield a positive pregnancy test. ... We asked about all the diagnostic tests we would need to do, but he didn't recommend some because if there was an issue, he would just recommend IVF anyway.
Conceptions is 100% ICSI. They also tried to pressure us to do carrier testing on both partners and CCS of the embryos, by saying "99% of our patients do all of these." ... I think it is unfortunate that this clinic does not require a full diagnostic workup before they do any treatments. I feel we wasted 6+ months due to this and my polyps and blood flow issue that were not looked for and found.
How was your experience with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
We were and continue to be in the unexplained category. We asked about all the diagnostic tests we would need to do, but he didn't recommend some because if there was an issue, he would just recommend IVF anyway. However, we would prefer to have the entire workup done first to make that decision. Thus, we didn't get a full diagnostic workup before we did our first IUI and then almost started IVF at this clinic. Luckily, before starting IVF, we moved to a different clinic, who did a full workup which showed a couple minor issues. I really feel you need the entire picture before you waste your time and money on IUI or IVF, but that wasn't done here. I felt pressure to go the IVF route from the very first meeting, although I am young and have no major hurdles we are aware of yet.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Ask for all possible diagnostics tests to be done before doing any procedures. I had two polyps that had to be removed, but that was found by my second doctor before my second IUI. If there is a possibility that these issues are lingering, why spend money and time on treatments without having a full picture of what could be an issue?

Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Calisse Cryer)
I had no issues with the Conceptions nursing staff. I did have much more cramping with my IUI at Conceptions versus my second clinic. I attribute this to the quality of the procedure done by the nurse.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I think it is unfortunate that this clinic does not require a full diagnostic workup before they do any treatments. I feel we wasted 6+ months due to this and my polyps and blood flow issue that were not looked for and found. They also claim to be there to tailor your fertility program to your specific wants and needs, but that was not the case with our preliminary IVF discussions. We did not want to do ICSI, at least on our first IVF cycle. We are young and don't have male factor. However, Conceptions is 100% ICSI. They also tried to pressure us to do carrier testing on both partners and CCS of the embryos, by saying "99% of our patients do all of these." This is the ultimate reason we left the clinic. Why have a 100% policy (like ICSI) when each patient's issues/wants are so different? We found a completely different atmosphere at our second clinic, where they allowed a completely tailored approach to our IVF protocol. We are very grateful the 100% ICSI policy pushed us to our new doctor and clinic.

Doctor Greene was amazing. He was always willing to cover treatment options and plans in as much detail as we wanted. He also provided material on extra supplements and research that has been show to help with fertility. He never had me do something in my treatment without providing an explanation about why I was doing it.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Come prepared with questions and feel free to ask them.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Robert Greene at Conceptions Reproductive Associates?
Dr Greene was very thorough in answering questions and explaining all steps of all processes to us. He was understanding when things didn't go the way we wanted them to and was sympathetic to that and was able to provide explanations. I really like his willingness to answer questions and to be available to answer questions outside of consultations.
Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
I had 2 rounds of treatment, after the first round we discovered an egg health issue that we did not know about previous to having embryos PGS tested. The first round did not include any extra medications, They retrieved 18 eggs, 13 were mature, 12 were fertilized. Only 3 made it to day 5 (previously unknown egg quality issue) and 3 were sent for PGS testing, 1 was deemed "normal" Grade AB. The second round of IVF protocol was similar with the addition of Omnitrope. They retrieved 13 eggs, 9 were mature, 8 were fertilized, 4 made it to day 5 and were frozen and sent for PGS testing, 3 came back "normal".

We have insurance coverage and paid around $20,000 for all testing and procedures.
Describe Robert Greene's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
The clinic recommends eSET because of all of the testing done on the embryo and uterus before hand the live birth rate is very high and the goal is for a healthy baby and a single embryo transfer has a higher chance of a healthy live birth. But they have it as an open topic of discussion.

Dr Greene was very familiar with my case right when I walked in- I could tell he had read it before I arrived and that was reassuring. He asked a lot of questions and gave us several options and helped us understand everything thoroughly before we parted. We never felt rushed and he answered any questions that arose after our meeting very promptly... we used 50 mg of Clomid for the first 4 IUIs and an ovulation predictor kit. For our last IUI we used a trigger shot and ultrasound to be more accurate. I was also taking herbal supplements that he recommended and prenatals to help egg health
The only weakness was the overall first impression. The staff [Conceptions Reproductive Associates] is great but the decor is dated and doesn't reflect the "state of the art" technology they are using. Also, there were 2 employees smoking in the parking lot when I pulled up which seemed very contradictory to everything somehow... IUIs and testing were less expensive than my own doctors- IUIs were $350ish. IVF all in would be 25-35k per round

Dr. Greene explained the option thoroughly after evaluating our test results. He told us that he was more inclined to start the IVF process, but that IUI was also an option. When we decided to give IUI a shot, he never made us second guess ourselves. He is very personable and positive.... He is very easy to contact via email and responds quickly. One weakness I experienced was a lack of detail when it came to lab and test results.
The nursing staff is overall very compassionate and personable at Conceptions. You end up there so often, they start to recognize and remember details about you. The nurses are quick to respond to inquiries. Calisse is very professional and optimistic, but a little pushy about IVF.... A few times, we felt a little rushed in and out of the office. Overall, the staff takes every case very seriously and genuinely wishes to see success for the patients they treat.

Describe the protocols Robert Greene used in your cycles at Conceptions Reproductive Associates and their degree of success.
With a less-than-cookie-cutter PCOS diagnosis, Dr. Green suggested IUI as intervention for our infertility. He prescribed Letrozole at 50mg for days 3-7, an hcg shot after a follicle was confirmed 18mm or larger, and progesterone taken twice a day after the IUI. The Letrozole was used to ensure ovulation, and I did successfully ovulate, a little earlier every month over 3 months of IUI treatment. My progesterone was tested after one week of use and Dr. Greene was satisfied with the levels. While the circumstances seemed favorable, the IUI was never successful.

Dr Greene was up front with options, but I have only seen him twice in the 2 years I’ve been treated at this facility. Once for intake consultation and once for my HSG test. I would rather see the actual Dr more.... I was allowed to have my first IUI when my husband’s sperm count was still very very low. I would have rather saved the money for the next cycle when his sperm count was higher (due to fertility drugs).
They [Conceptions Reproductive Associates] didn’t even bother billing my insurance for blood work insurance covers a portion of. They just billed me the cash payment and every single time I have to submit insurance billing myself.... o calculate my total cost so far would probably scare me. Each IUI treatment including ultrasounds and day 3 bloodwork got cash pay is about $1200. Other bloodwork I’ve been required to do about once a year range from $100-$200. The HSG test cost about $500.

Describe your experience with your nurse at Conceptions Reproductive Associates. (Assigned nurse: Kalise)
She was thorough with the next steps after I went in on day one of cycle and let me know what would happen through the IUI cycle. The nurses did allow for me to have my first IUI cycle before my husband’s sperm count was at a high enough number.
Describe your experience with Conceptions Reproductive Associates.
I will be honest that my review may be bias to the fact I’ve had 3 unsuccessful IUIs. I know there is only so much a clinician can do when nature just isn’t working. If I could start from the beginning I would probably choose a different facility. I don’t feel like this facility is compassionate towards the cost of treatment.
