How was your experience with Timothy Gelety at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility?
Dr Gelety is thorough and knowledgeable. The initial appointment was long and not rushed. We covered everything. He set very real expectations and steps knowing that we could adjust the course along the way if necessary. I see him at EVERY single appointment whether its just a check in, an ultrasound or an actual procedure. While each appointment is not very long, I feel like everything is covered. I would call him "efficient"

There is one main nurse there. She is very friendly and caring. She knows our names and is knowledgeable on our case. She follows through quickly and consistently.

They are efficient. Its a small office so they know every patient and every case. The prices are the lowest anywhere but without sacrificing integrity or taking shortcuts. The staff is friendly and will always follow through on what they say. Little to no wait time. I was able to get into my initial appointment quickly. They answer the phone immediately.
They do not bill directly to insurance for anything other than office visits. So we have to pay out of pocket for blood work and procedures. But the billing coordinator did say they provide everything to make it easy to submit to insurance for reimbursement.

Monitoring appointments were scheduled like any other appointments. They don't have specific windows for only certain procedures. So we could schedule ultrasound appointments for any day of the week or time. This is because they are all handled by the doctor himself. We traveled 2 hours to see the doctor and found them very flexible to accommodate our schedule.
