Here’s what to look for in your fertility specialist & clinic

Board certification

Make sure your fertility specialist is board-certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Size of clinic

Think about whether you’re comfortable being attended to by multiple doctors, or if you’d prefer to work with just one.

Availability

Ask whether your fertility specialist will be available to answer questions during “off hours”—and what will happen if your treatment falls on a weekend.

Travel time

IVF cycles can require extensive monitoring—so if possible, choose one close to home or work. Or consider other options like IVC, which may require fewer monitoring visits as decided by your doctor.

Support services

Fertility treatment can be an emotional roller coaster. Ask if the clinic offers counseling or support groups to help you through it.

Insurance coverage

Many fertility clinics have financial specialists on staff who can help you figure out your insurance coverage for treatment and what your out-of-pocket cost may be. Find out if yours does.

Success rates

These depend on many different factors. You can learn more about the success rates of a clinic near you.
