The Fertility Institute
PLEASE BE CAREFUL if you are considering going to The Fertility Institute. My husband and I ended up paying about $6000-$8000 more then their advertised prices. Our case was difficult and we found out AFTER we paid the nonrefundable down payment that DIFFICULT meant MUCH MORE MONEY in medications. Our approximate cost with this office and medications were about $19,000 when our originally understanding of the costs were about $12,000. The doctor and head nurse treated us very rudely throughout the time we were going there! I could go on and on about everything that happened that NEVER should of, but I am just going to shorten this by saying, it was an AWFUL experience!I am not one to write reviews but I just thought that maybe if I would of read something like this before we signed up with this office, I would of known to ask about any OTHER charges that might occur or maybe I would of gone to get a second opinion at a different office.It is so difficult for couples going through fertility issues, the way we were treated by this office did not need to be added to the stress of the whole situation.
Tips & Advices
There are a variety of treatments reproductive endocrinologists can offer. Fertility drugs, such as Clomid, intrauterine insemination (IUI), and assisted reproductive therapy (ART) are the most common.
A fertility clinic is a medical clinic or hospital that specializes in helping couples or individuals who have fertility issues trying to have children. They focus on treatments to aid in the success of pregnancy and carrying the pregnancy to term. While many fertility clinics are covered by insurance, not all procedures are covered.
An endocrinologist must graduate from a four-year medical school from an osteopathic or allopathic (MD) program. This is followed by three years of residency in OB/gyn, followed by residency in a three year fellowship in endocrinology and infertility.
The endocrine system consists of glands that produce and secrete the hormones that control and regulate the activity of cells and organs. These hormones regulate growth, metabolism, sexual and reproductive development, and other physical and chemical processes. The primary glands of the endocrine system include the pituitary, thyroid, adrenals, pineal body, the pancreas, parathyroid,  hypothalamus, and the reproductive organs (testes and ovaries).
Treatments that include the handling of egg and sperm are known as assisted reproductive technology (ART). The most common ART is in vitro fertilization (IVF). In this process, mature eggs are harvested from the female and fertilized by the male donor’s sperm (under laboratory conditions). Upon conception, the fertilized embryos are implanted into the female’s uterus.
