1. Consider training and experience

Fertility specialists and their teams require an extensive amount of training and experience to be successful. When you’re choosing a Reproductive Endocrinologist, choose someone who is board certified and did a fellowship in Reproductive Endocrinology, don’t be afraid to ask about training, credentials, success rates, and experience.

2. Check the facility’s public reputation

Here at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center, we’re happy to provide patient testimonials here on our website as well as information regarding the awards we’ve earned from various local, state, and national medical associations. Any office you’re considering partnering with should be willing to do the same.

3. Check your overall comfort level

Fertility treatments are stressful for many reasons. The egg recipient process typically requires multiple office visits to undergo often unfamiliar medical procedures. This can feel overwhelming and more than a little frightening for many people. Increased stress levels may also interfere with successful IVF. 

We work hard to provide a warm, welcoming, and stress-free atmosphere for our patients and feel it’s a key component of our high success rate here at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center.

4. Evaluate the egg donor process

Whether your egg donor remains anonymous or is someone you know, you have the right to question specifics regarding the donor’s health, age, family history, personality, physical characteristics, and other information that’s important to you. 

Donors generally undergo a physical exam, mental health evaluation, and comprehensive lab studies before being accepted as donors.

5. Express yourself

We consider our patients to be the most valuable members of the team here at Rocky Mountain Fertility Center. You should always feel comfortable asking questions regarding the treatments being recommended, your role in the process, and your specialist’s expectations for success.
