Anyone have recommendations for good doctors or labs for Fertility testing? I am not even sure where to start. Our insurance is Blue Cross Blue Shield NC - Blue Options plan.

Would prefer to find places around Southpark.

you can send me a private message if you prefer.

Thanks!

I think one of the most popular places to go for fertility treatment/testing is REACH (Reproductive Endocrinology Associates of Charlotte). I know they have an office near CMC-Main and one in Concord.

I'd recomend REACH. Their office is on Moorehead. I believe the Concord office is closed. CMC also has a group, but I believe their wait time is longer.

Call them and they'll let you know what your insurance covers. reachdrs.com is the website. Oh... they have a general informational seminar coming up. 9/29. Check out their website.

You can also try Affordable IVF in Huntersville. It's a small practice with one doctor and two nurses, but they have a high success rate, and as the name suggests, they are more affordable. Usually though your regular gyn should be able to run preliminary tests such as fertility blood panels, ultrasounds, even HSGs. What kind of testing do you need? You can PM me back if you prefer. I have been going through fertility testing and treatment for several years.

it depends on the program i think. when i had a consultation there it was $7500 per IVF procedure, plus the cost of anesthesia and meds, and their shared risk option was $17000 compared to a little more than $20000 at Reach. The main difference is that there are more doctors and experts on staff at Reach, so it's really what works best for you. The success rates are very similar, but Affordable's is a bit higher. They are also more picky about who they perform procedures on. My gyn says that's why their stats are higher, but who knows...in the end we are going with Reach just b/c it makes me more comfortable than a one doc practice, but for some it is definitely worth checking out.
