About Evaluating Your Doctor

  • What We Ask

    Our questions cover who you are, from your background to your fertility history, and your experience and outcomes with doctors who have treated you. You can skip anything that you’d rather not answer or you’re not sure about.

  • What a Great Assessment Looks Like

    What is most helpful to new patients is understanding your experience in your own voice. Details and examples are much more helpful than generalities. For example, rather than saying a doctor is “dedicated” it’s more helpful to provide an example, like “Doctor Smith was very dedicated to my care. She would personally call me whenever I had concerns, and even came in after hours to do an ultrasound when I was nervous about cramps following my positive pregnancy test.”

  • Your Privacy

    We take your privacy seriously, as we know that you’re sharing a very personal experience. Your name, initials, and contact information will never be displayed, and your employer name will never be linked to your assessment, to keep your assessment anonymous to the public. Other more general information, such as age, occupation, and race will be displayed with your description of a given doctor. Some details you include may make it possible for your doctor to know your identity -- for example, if you’re describing a rare and specific error the doctor made, or if you mention that you had 10 rounds of IVF over two years at a small clinic.

  • Confirming Authenticity

    In an age of online trolling and cutthroat clinic marketing, we want patients to be able to trust the content provided by the FertilityIQ community. As such, we ask that after you complete an assessment, you email us something to show that you were a patient at the clinic you rated. We ask that the clinic name and your name be legible, and no sensitive information is required. This can be a forwarded e-mail message from someone at the clinic, a partial bill, a screenshot of a patient portal, or anything that shows you were a patient. Once we receive your document, your assessment will be marked as “verified” on FertilityIQ.

About us

We’re Jake and Deborah, and four years ago we began looking for the best fertility doctor for us. We traveled to multiple clinics, in multiple states, and along the way learned a lot of hard lessons. We’ve realized that finding the right fertility doctor is an incredibly personal choice, and that the earlier you find the right doctor, the more bearable this whole process becomes.

For us, that was easier said than done. We found the resources and information about fertility doctors to be filled with hearsay, half-truths and marketing spin from the clinics. With our future riding on this decision, we started FertilityIQ, where the data compiled from a community of concerned patients helped us find our final doctor.

If you’re here looking for the best care for you, we hope you find the insight you deserve. If you’re here with wisdom that can help, we hope you’ll candidly evaluate your doctor. If you need us, you can always email us at founders@fertilityiq.com.
