He [Dr. Schoolcraft] had a positive & encouraging attitude. We troubleshooted 3 different protocols until we found our winning protocol. We have adjusted the cycle so that he can monitor me out of state by having me do more ultrasounds & labwork in my home state & only has me fly to Denver when the follicles are at the optimum size which reduces my out of state lodging expenses & minimizes the amount of time off I need to take from work for retrievals.
The level of care at the clinic [CCRM] is exceptional. Everyone is very professional. Lone Tree is a lovely town to be in while I am undergoing care. The staff works very well to coordinate together to make sure you efficiently meet with all the necessary departments in a timely fashion. ... I have always had my same nurse the entire treatment period thru 4 cycles. She crys with me when my cycles fail. She is always available to me & gets back to me very quickly. When she is off, I am always able to reach another nurse on staff & nurses always return calls even after hours.

My last cycle was my best cycle yet, where I retrieved 2 bonus eggs. I retrieved 1 immature egg which was matured in an incubator overnight. The cutting edge technology at CCRM Lone Tree has resulted in me being able to freeze more eggs.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of William Schoolcraft at CCRM Colorado?
Trust him & work in conjunction with him to achieve your goals. He is the best.

I always had access to speak, meet or convey info to my doctor & nurses & received answers to inquiries.
Describe the protocols William Schoolcraft used in your cycles at CCRM Colorado and their degree of success.
Priming is the key at CCRM. I was primed with testosterone gel & viagra. My winning protocol is using microdose Lupron a couple days prior & during stims. For Stims, I do 2 vials of Menopur in the morning & 300 Gonal in the evening for 10 days.

I think Dr. Schoolcraft is an excellent doctor. He is not the warmest, but he is friendly enough and I appreciate that he is so straightforward and honest. He always explains everything in a way that makes sense to me/my husband, and is willing to sit with us as long as we have questions. He is careful about managing our expectations, so we are prepared for the many different potential outcomes.
CCRM is a really wonderful clinic. It is a nice facility, and everyone working there from the receptionist to the doctors are very professional. I think it's obvious that it is at the cutting edge of new treatments and that the doctors, nurses, techs, etc, are incredibly qualified. The biggest weaknesses are the fact that it is such a big clinic that sometimes I feel like a number/it's not super personal. Additionally, they are so high tech with their treatment and their lab, but they are not that high tech with some of the other simpler things - like calendars! They could easily create digital and more professional looking calendars for patients that adjust with the patient. It sort of drives me crazy that they just have a sloppy, handwritten calendar and I'm expected to add in the dosages and other things as the change. Finally, it is just insanely expensive which is a huge challenge.

Ask all the questions you can think of - he is happy to answer them and explain everything to you!
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with William Schoolcraft at CCRM Colorado?
Dr. Schoolcraft has always talked to me and my husband about our issues individually - that makes me feel like he sees me as a unique case and individual human.
Describe the protocols William Schoolcraft used in your cycles at CCRM Colorado and their degree of success.
I have done one retrieval so far and will continue on the same protocol for the next two planned retrievals. My protocol at CCRM is called protocol 5 and was described by Dr. Schoolcraft as "the mother of all protocols." Since I have a diminished ovarian reserve, Dr. Schoolcraft wanted me on the highest dosages and most medication to get as many eggs as possible. The stim medications include: 2 vials menopur, 300 units follistim, 100mg clomid... then I added ganirellex and eventually triggered with 10,000 units of lupron and two 800 mg shots of acetate trigger kit.

Very straight forward and no nonsense, but he’s [Dr. Schoolcraft] still kind- some may view this as bad bedside manner but I appreciate someone who is straight to the point. Very knowledgeable and appreciated my questions and deligient research ... Antagonist protocol- he wanted to concentrate on quantity over quality (we thought my quality would be good). ... Strong preference to single embryo transfer, but was open to consider two.
I was Very impressed and felt comforted by the staff [CCRM Colorado], their attention to detail, and their friendliness. Everyone was able to answer my questions or immediately find an answer for me. They did not dismiss my concerns. ... Everything was very well organized, all the staff treated me as if I’d known them before even if it was our first time meeting, very thorough, nobody disregarded any of my questions and concerns

Dr Schoolcraft took his time discussing our fertility problems and questions with my husband and myself. We never felt rushed. He gave good examples if I didn’t understand something. Once I became pregnant with my first transfer, he called us personally to wish us congratulations. He wants each couple to succeed as much as we do ourselves!... Know that he will be honest and be up front and truthful with the process and chances. I never want a medical professional to sugarcoat things for me. I want the real facts.
CCRM has impeccable communication. No one was ever confused about where I was in the process or what came next for me. Everyone I talked with on the phone or in person was always very pleasant and answered questions appropriately.... Laura was always quick to return a phone call or patient portal question. She explained processes that were coming up. I am not local so she was always quick sending the orders I needed or prescriptions to my pharmacies.

He’s [Dr. Schoolcraft] extremely knowledgeable and has a lot of experience enough to be able to make recommendations about the process and answer all our questions. We unfortunately only met him once during our first visit to the clinic but we always felt like he was involved in the proces. ... The cycles and care were specific to my needs ... Due to my age, the doctor didn’t recommend transferring more than one embryo at a time.
I think the testing they [CCRM Lone Tree] make patients go through is extremely rigurous and detailed. They do require too many tests. Some of which are justified, but some are just exhausting and I don’t think completely necessary. Takes too long to complete all the testing. ... Helen was outstanding. She prepared all the schedules on time, answered all emails I had with any questions. She tried to help when we got stuck somewhere.

DR schoolcraft is a genius. He really is the top of the top when it comes to infertility specialists. I highly recommend him and the wealth of knowledge he brings. He will not over promise and his a great listener and communicator..... I had just a consultation with the doctor but I felt he took the time to answer all my questions and boy did I have a lot written down! I never felt rushed or talked down too.
The clinic [CCRM-CO] is really top notch, this is the mothership of all ccrm. It is weird there are two sides to the clinic which is a little confusing when you first go there. The team is really the master of their skill and I would highly recommend them. The dr and nurse also left me prenatal vitamin samples which the front desk had for me.... My next step was bloodwork which was going to be 1400 which is a bummer has I just got bloodwork done from my obgyn that cost me 900 but ccrm wanted to use their own lab.
