Many families have the same questions about infertility treatment services, and Ohio Reproductive Medicine’s history. The following questions are the ones we’re most frequently asked.
How can I objectively compare Ohio Reproductive Medicine to other infertility programs?
It’s difficult to compare clinics. However, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention and the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technologies (SART) publish information on most of the ART programs in the United States. Trends and patterns identified in this report may help you better understand the programs you’re considering.
How do I compare Ohio Reproductive Medicine’s specialists to other infertility specialists based on their current success rates?
Be sure to ask for documentation on overall success rates and on success rates for your age range and your type of infertility. All the physicians in our practice are fellowship-trained and board-certified.
Why are success rates important?
Knowing a program’s success rate helps you better understand your odds for delivery. Also, understanding a center’s success rate helps you gauge the financial impact of multiple treatment attempts.
Does it matter how long a program has been in existence?
Yes. Infertility treatment, especially in vitro fertilization, requires high levels of timing, coordination, and communication. The longer a team has worked together and been in the infertility field, the higher the likelihood your treatment plan will be well executed. Ohio Reproductive Medicine is a leading provider of infertility and reproductive services. We’ve been helping build families for more than 18 years.
Who will be on my fertility treatment team?
Ohio Reproductive Medicine physicians are joined by a highly trained team of infertility care specialists. All the physicians within our practice are fellowship-trained in reproductive endocrinology and infertility. They are also board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology. The specialists who support our physicians have undergone advanced education and have years of experience in caring for infertility patients.
What other online resources are available for evaluating a fertility program?
We encourage our patients to visit the Web site of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine. This organization offers many materials that can help you evaluate a fertility program.
