IS HIGH QUALITY AFFORDABLE IVF THE SAME AS LOW COST IVF?

Yes and No, mostly NO!

Why our High Quality Affordable IVF is NOT “Low Cost” or “Minimal or Mini IVF”

• HQA-IVF is a full IVF cycle with appropriate medications (not lower dose meds)

• HQA-IVF provides comprehensive and frequent ultrasound monitoring and blood work (not minimal ultrasounds and blood work that may lead to cancelled cycles or Ovarian hyper stimulation -OHSS) • HQA-IVF is retrieval of maximal numbers of eggs, not limited numbers of eggs (the more eggs, the more embryos, the more embryos the more likely chance of finding a normal embryo)

• HQA-IVF is full 5 to 6 day Blastocyst culture (rather than shortened day 2 or day 3 culture – this allows the embryos to express their full potential to create an OHB – One Healthy Baby™)

• HQA-IVF includes ICSI, this is a painstaking process to individually select the right sperm to inject into each egg, thereby increasing the creation of more embryos, therefore, more selection, and hence better outcomes, an OHB!

• HQA-IVF includes Assisted Hatching if necessary, this process has been shown to increase the odds of pregnancy, especially in women who are older than 35 years of age

• HQA-IVF includes Fresh or Frozen Embryo Transfer, to be sure, in 2015 it is likely that most IVF programs in the know will start doing only Frozen Embryo Transfers (FETs), because more and more data suggest better outcomes, remember OHB™!

• HQA-IVF includes freezing and short term storage of Frozen Embryos, this allows two very important advantages… 1) if you do not get pregnant with the Fresh cycle then you have a second chance and 2) if you want more children you now already have the embryos stored!

• HQA-IVF includes FREE FETs if you do not get pregnant! The typical cost for an FET ranges between $3000 to $5000; however, in our program there are no ART costs, none. The only caveat is that you will need to be monitored, that cost in our program is $500 for ultrasounds and blood work (yes you can get those monitored at your own OB/GYN office if you prefer)

• HQA-IVF include 5 Star Service:

o You will be greeted and known by our staff with both a smile and desire to help you
o You will know, up front, all the costs, there are no hidden charges
o You will see the doctor, the nurse practitioner, and the embryologist… we want to get to know you and your family… this is the right way to create an OHB™!
o Our Patient Advocate service personnel will help you through the process… it can be scary and confusing… we will help
o You will get our phone numbers, even Dr. Magarelli’s personal cell if you need it… no worries.
o We will celebrate and cry with you for your successes… we love what we do
o If for any reason you are unclear, confused, scared, disappointed… we will give you access to our management and doctor… we want this experience to be the best ever for a medical practice… please tell us if we fail to meet the 5 Star Service… 4 Stars is unacceptable
