Hooray!!! Congrats on the HB! That is great news : ). Sorry about the SCH but at least they are on top of it. I was very impressed w my U/S tech at SCRC BH she explained things to me in detail and was very professional.
I understand about speaking badly… Each clinic I’ve been too has had ups and downs. I wish I could take a lab from one, RE from another and another’s nurses & billing and combine it into my perfect clinic. I think u r correct that IUI patients don’t get as much oversight. I did a few IUI at my OB and 1 at my RE and felt the same.
As for success rates, I was checking HRC and noticed over 50% of their cases are MF. I was surprised, I can think of no other clinic with that high of a percentage. Also their SART stats are only listed for 2010 & 2011 yet they are one of the older RE groups in SoCal. I don’t understand why they only list 2 yrs of results. I was interested in talking to them but that only 2 yrs of sart makes me nervous.
I hear mixed things about Mark Surrey but mostly positive. Im glad he is helping you GL
[QUOTE=agr72]Well, the wait for one u/s is over (we saw the heartbeat today, YAY! But also an SCH, boo!), but now I go back in two more weeks for a check. The never ending cycle of u/s until you get the all clear at 12 weeks.
I shouldn’t speak badly of HRC, since I did get pregnant with my DS there via IUI, but we were in the process of looking for a new RE when we found out I was pregnant. We were ready to move onto IVF and didn’t like the attention to detail at HRC (although this could just be how IUI patients are treated and IVF would be different. And there are many HRC offices, so not sure if they are run differently). Plus, I started looking at SART stats and realized that HRCs success rates were mostly for younger women whose issue was male factor. They didn’t have that many older women with DOR, which is my issue.
So I see Dr. Mark Surrey at SCRC now. I have not heard of anyone doing the beta 3 integrin test here, but I haven’t asked about it either. I wonder if Dr. Surrey would be open to it since I think his brother is at CCRM (Dr. Eric Surrey)? Also, they did not offer the embryo glue or hcg at ET. But then I was pregnant last year and have not had any losses or BFN IVF cycles, so maybe they save that for harder cases.
Good luck in your research, bagelmomma![/QUOTE]
