Sorry I keep posting but I love the feedback. It's really helped me make some crucial decisions. We're going forward with Dr. Hesla at OR due to their track record and overall success rate for women in my predicament - DOR. Just curious what all your thoughts are on what takes more precedence? Better doctor or cheaper clinic? OR is considered "out of network" for my insurance policy (have lifetime $40,000 for IVF - I know WOW!) so there will be additional out-of-pockets expenses that we will accrue. Probably means we won't be able to afford as many cycles but maybe that's not of consideration if you do it right the first time.
Thanks for everything you guys! You've been great!
If I were at your age with your numbers, that is whom I'd be cycling with. His skills, and most importantly his lab, are way above any local clinics in the Pacific Northwest. I am originally from PNW and I have friends who cycled at different clinics multiple times, they just don't even come close.
Would two failed cycles be more expensive or one successful cycle? Go to Dr. Hesla when you still can, or when you end up in my situation, you will have no choice but to fly down to my SoCal clinic EVERY MONTH and pay entirely out of pocket. I sort of regret not cycling with Dr. Hesla in early 2011 because of insurance issues, I wasted a whole year and lost my uterus.
