How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney is energectic and sometimes a whirlwind when talking with her. However, she also fully answers my questions, relies on best practices and research to make adjustments to protocol. She is compassionate and understands the stress that is involved with this process. When I had questionable lab results, she called me personally to go over options.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I would advise them to come to the appointment prepared with questions and ready to speak up. Due to Dr. McKinney’s high level of energy, it is sometimes easy to get overwhelmed and forget the questions while in the office.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
This clinic is small enough that you are not treated as a number. I had easy access to my nurse through the portal, and every appointment I saw Dr. McKinney. She performs all of the ultrasounds herself. All the staff have been friendly and understanding of this process.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
4 IUIs, we used Femera, low-dose Follistim, and trigger shot. No positives. 2 retrievals— both used lupron for suppression, first used follistim, second used Gonal-F. Both resulted in 1 embryo. 3-preparations for FET. First 2 used Lupron, estrogen patches, and vaginal estrogen. 2nd one also added sildenafill suppository. Both FETs were cancelled due to thin lining, but 2nd was better. Currently doing 3rd FET with adjustment of injectable estrogen instead of patches.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nichole Flores)
All the nursing staff at the clinic is fabulous. They are caring, quick to return messages, and incredibly compassionate. They have guided me through the process and provide extremely clear and thorough instructions after each visit.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
This is a nice clinic and the staff are friendly and easy to talk to. The only issues I’ve had we’re related to submitting my consent paperwork prior to treatment. There have been a couple times I emailed to them the paperwork, and then received a phone call that it was not turned in. Even with these technical problems, they have been very friendly and understanding.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
I think costs were comparable to type rates for fertility in the US. $10,000-$15,000 for retrieval, $3,000 - $5,000 for transfer.
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Dr. McKinney explained the pros and cons of each to us, and left the decision completely up to us. There has been no pressure to choose one over the other.

Dr McKinney did a good job with explaining the procedures and what to expect and was blunt about our chances of conceiving natural, with IUI, and with IVF. At only 19-20 years old she never once made me feel as if I was “to young” to be going to her clinic for help. One downfall is that when my first IUI failed and I wanted to begin injections I was told “everything went perfect there’s no need to change your meds” even though in my eyes it did not result in a pregnancy therefore it did not go perfect.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr McKinney did a good job with explaining the procedures and what to expect and was blunt about our chances of conceiving natural, with IUI, and with IVF. At only 19-20 years old she never once made me feel as if I was “to young” to be going to her clinic for help. One downfall is that when my first IUI failed and I wanted to begin injections I was told “everything went perfect there’s no need to change your meds” even though in my eyes it did not result in a pregnancy therefore it did not go perfect. Towards the end of IUI #2 I sent a message in patient portal regarding again wanting to change my meds and go through with IUI #3. They told me I was unable to schedule an appointment with dr McKinney in the middle of a treatment cycle and that I would have to hold off on starting IUI #3 and schedule an appointment if I wanted to discuss changing anything. I felt I already waited enough and if I’m paying for a treatment there should be no reason why I can’t meet the Dr in the middle of the treatment.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Look elsewhere if you want an aggressive treatment
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr McKinney’s office knew who I was the minute I walked through the door by appointment number 2. When I went to the desk to check in I hardly ever had to tell them my name
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For both my IUIs I went in once between day 2-5 for baseline ultrasound and bloodwork, then I was put on 5mg of letrazole day 5-9, mid cycle ultrasound between day 12-15, 1st I had only 1 follicle and the 2nd I had 1 good size and 1 that. Plus possibly catch up, day after midcycle ultrasound I would trigger with ovidril at 8pm then go in for IUI 36hrs later, 7dpiui progesterone bloodwork, and 14dpiui HCG bloodwork. Each cycle costed around $800 total. Both cycles failed. I believe due to the fact I ovulated earlier than the 36hr mark but her protocol is IUI 36 hours after IUI
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center.
They got back to me within about an hour. Very fast responders.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The staff are amazing but they don’t listen to what the patient really wants. This clinic just uses their basic protocols instead of making each patient an individualized plan of care. The clinic itself was very nice and clean
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
One IUI cost around $900 total with meds, ultrasounds, and bloodwork. That’s a noninjection cycle with no insurance coverage. Our quote on IVF was $12000 down + meds

Dr McKinney never rushed our appointments and she answered every question in a manner we were able to understand. She provided information on all options and allowed us to choose the one that made the most sense for our family. I was afraid we would be required to do several rounds of IUIs before we would be allowed to explore IVF, but due to our diagnosis, we were able to pursue IVF in the beginning. We spent seven months from our earliest blood test to the frozen embryo transfer - making the process much quicker than we had anticipated.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr McKinney is the most intelligent human being I have ever met and her attention to detail was excellent. She never promised success, just that she would do everything within her power to ensure the highest chance of success which made us feel like we were more than numbers or dollar signs. Dr McKinney held my hand and hugged me when I cried at my appointments and she explained everything in a way that was not overwhelming. No one wants to walk through the doors at her clinic, but since we had to be there I am so glad we had her to be our guide through the infertility journey.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Write ALL of your questions down and ask every single one of them. So your research beforehand and be your own advocate. If you do not want to do certain things, be vocal. The doctor cannot read your mind. We knew we wanted to give ourselves the best chance of a successful pregnancy and live birth, regardless of costs and we expressed that in the beginning.

Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
10-12 days of stims: Follistim (50-250u) and Ganirelix (3-5 days) Follistim to stimulate the ovaries and produce eggs. Ganirelix to slow the maturation and allow the smaller follicles to catch up to the larger ones. Trigger shot of Ovidrel. FET: Birth control for one month before transfer. Approx 30 days of Lupron to suppress reproductive system. Estrogen patches, 1-4 changed every other day, to thicken lining during weeks before FET and through week 10 of pregnancy. Progesterone in oil 5 days before FET and through week 9 of pregnancy because the pregnancy was unnatural and the placenta had not taken over production.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nicole and Amanda)
The nurses were always accommodating at appointments and always passed along any questions or concerns to my doctor. The patient portal allowed me to communicate with the nurses on an as-needed basis and that convenient feature helped ease my mind when I had a question but wasn't sure to whom it should be directed.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
I was overwhelmed by the amount of medical history that was requested BEFORE my initial consultation. I had no idea why they would need all of that two weeks before my appointment, but I learned after meeting the staff that they want to study and prepare so that the best form of treatment is presented for the couple's specific needs. The staff reviewed our history and were able to discuss health concerns from the beginning.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Egg retrieval cycle and most tests associated with cycle $13,000-$14,500 Egg retrieval medication: $7,500 FET procedure: $5,000 FET meds: $2,500
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
TFC has ethical and moral basis for transferring no more than two embryos during a cycle because excessive multiples not only endangers the lives of the fetuses, the mother's safety is severely jeopardized. For those seeking treatment, not in the advanced maternal age bracket, one to two embryos may be transferred.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I have been nothing but pleased with Dr. McKinney. She has been through infertility herself, which makes it easy for her to show compassion toward her patients. I respect that she didn’t “sugar-coat” anything and was always right to the point. She explained things in a way that was very easy for a lay person to understand. I highly recommend her!
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Be open about your expectations and timeline. She understands every patient is on a different timeline and might want to be less or more aggressive with treatment. She will give you her recommendation, but she will also respect your wishes.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney never made me feel rushed at my appointments and always answered my questions with a smile on her face. She showed she genuinely cared about my feelings by crying with me and also sharing stories from her personal life.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Dr. McKinney discovered I had a very low ovarian reserve for my age. She told me the most aggressive route would be to harvest as many eggs as I could before trying to become pregnant. This is because eggs can’t be retrieved during pregnancy, and my ovarian reserve would only further diminish as time passes. We went through one round of IVF and retrieved 8 eggs. We are still waiting to hear back how many made it to day 5. We plan on doing 1-2 more rounds of egg retrieval before transferring any embryos.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nichole Johnson)
My IVF coordinator is very detail oriented, and always responds promptly to any questions I have.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The clinic was able to see me very quickly, and scheduling has always been a breeze. They utilize an online patient portal for communication, which makes it easy to keep track of documents, results, messages, etc. Everything I had to do was done in-house, so I never had to go to a hospital.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
One round of egg retrieval with cryopreservation and ICSI was $15,000. Medications cost $6,000. We have not transferred yet, but it will cost $5,000 without medications.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Despite having two failed cycles with Dr. McKinney I had been really happy with her until i saw another dr recently who was shocked that in 2016 she did day 3 PGS testing and fresh transfer since the standard for some time has been day 5 biopsy and PGS testing followed by an FET...we still wonder if this is why only 2 embryos were normal out of 11 tested. Also my current Dr figured out that I have a rare congenital uterine abnormality (uterine didelphys) and although this wasn't totally Dr. McKinney fault as the radiologist who incorrectlt interpreted the results of the MRI she ordered after having and HSG that indicated a possible mullerian abnormality...I wish she would have pushed a little more and asked for the CD images to look at it herself. I also wish she would have done a hysteroscopy done before my IVF cycles.; my current Dr is doing this and I have been told it helps to show the Dr more of the uterus and what to expect as well as if there is any infection. I wish she would have done one of these...Maybe one of our cycles would have worked then.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Do your own research and ask about other possible tests to be done, advocate for yourself and you can also ask to get her partner Dr. Prough's advice if you want.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney connected eith me and although she was blunt she was very easy to talk to and made us feel like we had a plan we could try.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
For my two IVF cycles the medicines I took were follistem, ganirelix, PIO, the trigger shot. One thing i thought Dr. McKinney did well was raising my dose of follistem from cycle 1 to cycle 2 and waiting a little longer before retrieving on the second cycle and we had much better results as far as good eggs etc.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff was wonderful. I did get shamed a little when one of the IVF coordinators (was not a nurse) got upset with me when I was just a little short on my follistem and I had to be given some that was donated. She was angry that we were able to tell the pharmacy that we needed one less pen of follistem as we had some left over from our previous cycle. She said we shouldn't have been able to do this. I understand her point but I also understand where I was coming from since the pens were $1100 each!
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The financial department was frustrating. They would respond to emails and phone calls. The front desk was friendly and accommodating. They have a wonderful person named Patty who draws blood and is AMAZING at her job.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Our IVF cycles were about 12-13 thousand dollars. PGS testing was 5,000 with 2500 being paid to the testing place and 2500 being paid to the clinic.
Describe Shauna McKinney's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Dr. McKinney simply told us they would not transfer more than two. She did say that transferring two increases your odds that one will implant but I have heard conflicting data since then so I'm not sure what to think.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
We underwent several IUIs, a cancelled IVF, and a failed IVF before Dr. McKinney happened to mention that in addition to advanced maternal age and low AMH (which was normal before the two-month delay we experienced after starting with TFC), we also had a problem on the male side. His test results indicated that he was on the very low end of the range for a particular number (but in the “normal” range according to the report we have), and we were never told that it was a problem until our post-failed-IVF appointment. Dr. McKinney couldn’t believe that she never mentioned it, and just stated, “Well, that’s why we were doing ICSI,” but did not express any sympathy as to why were upset that we weren’t told specifically prior to that point.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Don't go here unless you like to feel like a statistic.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
I used the Ganirelix protcol with Follistim to stimulate ovarian production. My first attempt only produced 3 eggs, so she adjusted the next round to increase the dosage. I never felt that the doctor was able to manipulate her decisions or set expectations based on my specific situation.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At our initial visit, we were instructed to complete our lab work and then we’d be able to schedule our treatment. After not hearing back for two weeks, the nurse asked me to schedule a follow-up visit, which we had been told we didn’t need to do. In addition, I was assured that all of our previous records had been received, but in this two-week-later communication, was told that in fact, not all of the records were received. TFC was missing my most recent pap smear and my boyfriend’s test results. You would think that it would be simple for one professional to be in contact with another to ensure that all these records had been received. Instead, I wasn’t notified until two weeks after-the-fact, after being told that everything had been received, that they were missing my Pap smear result. In all, it took 6 weeks and at least 10-20 phone calls on my part to get that last little bit of information transferred, which of course, delayed our treatment for two months. It’s entirely possible that these were my last fertile months; my bloodwork afterward showed a decreased hormone level. I underwent many IUIs and two IVFs without any significant pain, so I’m not a wimp. However, there was one procedure after which I experienced such extreme cramping, I had tears in my eyes and could barely stand up. I hobbled out of my exam room and asked if they had any Tylenol or Advil, and not one person looked up from their computer or offered to help me up front.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
First round was covered by insurance, 2nd was about $15,000 (Including meds) because we had reached our insurance max.

She [Dr. McKinney] is very friendly and personable for the most part. I had one experience that kind of left me feeling disappointed with her. At my final ultrasound before trigger, 15 follicles were counted, however; only 8 were retrieved at my retrieval. When I asked why not more, she did explain that not all were mature but then proceeded to tell me that she wouldn't come to my work and question how I did my job...No rationale was given to me, the patient, as to why certain medications were used instead of others.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
She doesn't spend much time in the room after the 'important' stuff was done. If you have questions be sure to have them ready and start talking as soon as she gets done. Nothing is explained as to what exactly she is looking for at the baseline/miscycle ultrasounds. She is very friendly and personable for the most part. I had one experience that kind of left me feeling disappointed with her. At my final ultrasound before trigger, 15 follicles were counted, however; only 8 were retrieved at my retrieval. When I asked why not more, she did explain that not all were mature but then proceeded to tell me that she wouldn't come to my work and question how I did my job. I was a little taken aback, but as I was still affected by the anesthesia, I didn't say anything more. I really like her overall but that one comment just left a bad taste in my mouth.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Have your questions written down and don't be afraid to speak up.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
She was very empathetic, having gone through infertility herself. She said understood exactly what we were going through.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
No rationale was given to me, the patient, as to why certain medications were used instead of others. Overlapped BC and 10ui Lupron for 4 days then only 10ui Lupron for 7 days. Lowered to 5ui after that. Added in 200ui AM and 150ui PM Folistim and Dexamethosone for 9 days. Trigger at 11pm on day 10. Retrieval in day 12. Started Doxycycline and Medrol for 5 days. I had 15 follicles, 8 eggs, 4 mature, 3 fertilized, 1 made it to day 5 transfer. Waiting now for beta.

We've gone through 4 IUI cycles [with Dr. McKinney] in which we used follistim and ovidrel. After the 4th, we decided to move on to IVF with ICSI (to help with male factor infertility, low motility) using Follistim...Our first cycle was cancelled due to a cyst. We made it to retrieval during the second cycle but weren't able to transfer after PGS testing deemed the remaining embryos weren't of a good quality. After undergoing 2 surgeries (one to drain a cyst by my gynecologist and one to remove it by Dr. McKinney and her partner Dr. Prough) we started our 2nd official IVF cycle in late March.

Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
We've gone through 4 IUI cycles in which we used follistim and ovidrel. After the 4th, we decided to move on to IVF with ICSI (to help with male factor infertility, low motility) using Follistim. Our first cycle was cancelled due to a cyst. We made it to retrieval during the second cycle but weren't able to transfer after PGS testing deemed the remaining embryos weren't of a good quality. After undergoing 2 surgeries (one to drain a cyst by my gynecologist and one to remove it by Dr. McKinney and her partner Dr. Prough) we started our 2nd official IVF cycle in late March. I'm currently on Lupron and Dexamethasone and stimming with follistim. We found out today during a mid-cycle US that we will still retrieve but have to wait to transfer due to issues with my lining. I'll continue to go this week until they are ready to retrieve my eggs.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Amanda Johnson)
They have all been so kind and understanding. I found out today that most of the employees in the office have gone through fertility treatments of some sort. That means a lot to me because it means they really understand the process.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
It is very organized. I've been in and out quickly which is important to me because we travel 2 hours one way for appointments. Even though it's a quick process, I've NEVER felt rushed. They always take time to answer any questions we have.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
We've paid close to $20,000 for all treatments and medications.

Dr. McKinney always had a smile on her face and always welcomed me with a warm hug... I never felt like any question was to small and she always reassured me every step of the way. There were only a few appointments I didn't see her. And only for small stuff like blood draining and sonograms. Every big appointment she was there and sat and listened and answered every question....Dr. McKinney showed she really cared about us during treatment. She always listened to our concerns and talked us through the process the entire time.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney always had a smile on her face and always welcomed me with a warm hug! She was super sweet and super helpful during the entire process. I never felt like any question was to small and she always reassured me every step of the way. There were only a few appointments I didn't see her. And only for small stuff like blood draining and sonograms. Every big appointment she was there and sat and listened and answered every question. I still feel like I can call her for any questions or concerns.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Ask all the questions you want no matter how silly you think they are. She will answer each one and reassure you there is no silly questions.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney showed she really cared about us during treatment. She always listened to our concerns and talked us through the process the entire time.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
My body responded very good to the treatment Dr. McKinney wrote up. I started out taking birth control and after a month I started Lupron injections to help suppress my system. After a week or so of that injection we added Gonel-f. I would take an injection in the morning and in the evening. I stemmed for 11 days. At that time I was told I could use the trigger shot. My body responded great. I went in for egg reieval and they collected 16 eggs. Out of the 16, 11 were mature and 7 fertilized. We did a 5 day transfer of two embryos. Unfortunately we miscarried a few weeks later.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Nichole)
Nichole was amazing. Always greeted us with a smile and would help us with any questions we had.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
Strengths-everyone was super sweet and supportive. They always greet you with a smile. I feel like they personalized your experience. They got to really know us and our situation. Which to me was nice. I didn't feel like I had to keep repeating myself everytime I went in. They got us in very quickly for our first appointment. Went in for the first time in January and started treatment the next month when my cycle started. Weaknesses-I can't say I really have any.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
We had amazing insurance so I just paid a co pay. But the medication if I didn't have insurance would have been between 5,000-8,000 depending on the treatment plan. I believe the ivf process would have been around 10,000-13,000.

Very direct and confident in her treatment plan. [Dr. McKinney] Started us off slowly so we didn't overstimulate and explained risks of mulitples very clearly. Difficult at times coordinating with her office though since we are not from the Tulsa area....First IUI - Fermara for 5 days and produced 1 mature follicle. Did not get pregnant with IUI Second IUI - Fermara for 5 days plus several days of FSH injections. Lowest dosage of FSH to encourage two follicles for this cycle.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Communication was limited to their patient portal and sometimes it would take them a long time to get back to you. When you are working with a time sensitive cycle it was stressful and had me worried that I wouldn't hear from them in time. Wish there was just a number to call
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The office admins were snarky and difficult to work with at times. The receptionist was rude and we always had issues with our insurance. It was the worst part of the whole experience. You have to be your own health advocate and be prepared to fight w your insurance and make sure that things are done correctly or you might show up and be expected to pay a lot of money for a visit or US.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
$250 per Ultrasound. $125 for IUI. $200ish for sperm washing and prep. $300+ injectable FSH. $10 for Fermara

What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Ask questions because she'll take the time to answer them. Also make suggestions or ask if something should be considered. She will let you be your own advocate without making you feel crazy.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney made me feel like I was her only patient while talking to me. She gave me individualized care and took my questions and suggestions seriously.
Describe the protocols Shauna McKinney used in your cycles at Tulsa Fertility Center and their degree of success.
With DOR, I began on a mini ivf cycle and a birth control priming protocol. So, I took BCP, then Clomid for 10 days then gonal f on days 8, 10 and 12 with trigger on day 15 and retrieval on day 17. I am on an estrogen priming protocol with micro dose flare. I don't have my flow sheet yet.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I realize the nursing staff is busy, but sometimes I do feel like a number to them. They always answer my questions, but I feel like I'm annoying them at times. But they are friendly and helpful.
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
The front end of office isn't that organized. I had a very difficult time getting started because no one will answer the phone when you call and if you miss their return call you end up playing phone tag. But once you get on the schedule and past the intake coordinator, it's better.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
For a mini ivf cycle, I paid about $11,000, including meds. For normal ivf, it's $18,000 with meds. These also include PGS testing.

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I couldn't have expected any greater experience. Infertility is such an extremely hard and difficult thing to experience, but if any light has come from it, I have had an incredible doctor to treat me through it all. She is absolutely amazing, and I don't know if I could say enough about her. She has stayed for hours to answer all the many questions I have had. She has was been very informative and given me all the options that I have available. She is always optimistic, but yet never fails to inform me of the risks and reasonable outcomes. She is caring, considerate, kind, funny, and just an amazing individual who has been through infertility herself. I would highly recommend her to ANYONE who is needing fertility treatments.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Don't be afraid to ask as many questions as you want. Knowing what you are going through and being educated about the whole realm of the situation can be very comforting.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
I always felt like I was treated as an individual with my own infertility issues, and not just another patient. Everyone was always very sincere, caring, and helpful. When a doctor and nurse cry with you over a miscarriage, and even holds your hand until you fall asleep under anesthesia for your D&C, then you truly know that they deeply care.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Tulsa Fertility Center. (Assigned nurse: Amanda, Kari)
Everyone makes you feel very comfortable when you are at their facility. Bed side manner has always been one of my top priorities, and the staff at TFC exceeds above and beyond.

I had a good experience. [with Dr Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center]. I like getting to the point and straight facts. She was fact driven and I think catered to what I needed in a physician. When I found out I was having twins and started crying she became the caring physician that I needed at that moment....She's works fast so have all your questions written out ahead of time....She knew we needed IVF/ICSI because of my husband's low semen count from the beginning. She had ruled me out as a reason for the infertility. She based the timing of the retrieval on the number of eggs and my lab values.

Dr. McKinney is personable and happy to answer questions. For the most part, I never felt rushed and she always seemed up to date on my particular case and details...Occasionally, she could come off as dismissive or arrogant, but those instances were rare and definitely didn't overshadow the overall appreciation that I had for her time and expertise...We did a total of 4 IUIs, the first 3 with clomid/monitoring/trigger shot, and the last and final one we added injectibles as a "hail mary." They were pretty standard IUI cycles with regular bloodwork and ultrasounds. I have a blocked tube and my husband has slight morphology issues, so we were treated basically as "unexplained" and went forward with regular IUIs, planning on IVF following the 4th IUI. Protocols

How was your experience with Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center?
Dr. McKinney is obviously intelligent and knowledgeable. It puts me at ease when a doctor quotes current research, which she did multiple times. I loved that I saw her at every appointment, and she did every ultrasound so I could ask questions during and get detailed responses. I'm the type of patient that wants to understand every single step and why decisions are being made! Occasionally, she could come off as dismissive or arrogant, but those instances were rare and definitely didn't overshadow the overall appreciation that I had for her time and expertise.

Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
There were a few communication issues, but overall, the nurses were very responsive through the portal and explained things well the few times I had to call. The staff in general were kind and organized!
Describe your experience with Tulsa Fertility Center.
I highly recommend Dr. McKinney for anyone with fertility issues, and for treatments up to IUI, but I was planning to go elsewhere for IVF. TFC has pretty bad IVF success rates (at least back when I looked in 2018) and I also wanted a shared risk program, so I had an appointment scheduled in Oklahoma City for IVF when I got pregnant with the 4th IUI.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Shauna McKinney at Tulsa Fertility Center.
Each full IUI cycle was about $1,500-$2,000 depending on how many ultrasounds I needed, and more for the last cycle where we added injectibles. This is completely out of pocket, no insurance coverage.
