Success w/ Doc Too early to know
Dr. Berga is extremely kind and I would trust my life with her. She always made sure that my husband and I understood each step along the way, and assured we were comfortable, not just with the process, but the outcomes, both good and not so good. I would go to her time and time again.... Dr. Berga is really amazing at what she does, and I say this because she is extremely knowledgeable, but also makes a point to sit down and get to know you. Since she takes the time to do this, she talks to you like she would a good friend whom she cares about. From the moment my husband and I met her, we knew we were in the best of hands.
The clinic [Univ of UT-SLC] is extremly clean, and very organized. The quality of care is high. Since doctors make sure to spend enough time with each patient, there is usually a delay in seeing your provider, however I feel that this is the case at most clinics that provide higher quality of care, and the wait never bothered me.... The nursing staff is very efficient and communicates well between each other.... We are currently in this process, and our costs are estimated at $18,000

Describe Sarah Berga's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at University of Utah.
Dr. Berga prefers to do an elective single embryo transfer. She prefers this for several reasons. I am 28 years old, and my eggs are very healthy. Due to my age , Dr. Berga explained that I will have a high success rate. She also explained that with multiple embryo transfer, we are lowering the success rate for our overall transfers (if we do more than one). I also have a smaller frame, and to become pregnant with twins, while a blessing, would be very demanding on my body, and we are looking to prevent that.

Success w/ Doc Too early to know
[Dr. Sarah Berga] answered all of our questions and spent over an hour with us at each appointment...Have questions ready when you get to the appointment. Then you can help guide the conversation exactly where you want it to go, and get all the information you need...She explained the risks with multiple pregnancies and said that single embryo transfer is preferred because the likelihood for multiple births goes down...We are just about to start an IVF cycle and she has been very helpful in walking us through the process so we know what to expect.
University of Utah only likes to transfer one embryo...staff was very friendly and welcoming. We did not have to wait very long for appointments and they wanted to make you as comfortable as they could. The software that they use is fantastic! It makes it so easy to ask questions to your doctors if you think of any and they are really fast to respond! And they post your results as soon as they get them for you to look at
How was your experience with Sarah Berga at University of Utah?
She is very nice and was willing to answer all questions. However, she did tend to ramble a little bit when talking. Come with some questions ready to go to help her understand what you would like to know. She covered things in detail and helped us make a plan that would work for us.

Describe your experience with University of Utah.
I have loved working with the Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine at the University of Utah. All of the staff was very friendly and welcoming. We did not have to wait very long for appointments and they wanted to make you as comfortable as they could. The software that they use is fantastic! It makes it so easy to ask questions to your doctors if you think of any and they are really fast to respond! And they post your results as soon as they get them for you to look at. I haven't found anything that I don't like about them!
