In Good Hands: 3 Traits of the Best Fertility Doctor

By Taylor Frey on April 15, 2018

     The IVF process can a very expensive venture for any intended parents trying to have a child. The truth is, many couples can only afford to go through the process one time. While advanced IVF treatment has made the dream of having a child a reality for couples who can’t conceive on their own, it can take a heavy toll financially and emotionally.

Having the best fertility doctor possible will give you peace of mind that you (and your embryos) are in the best hands. The world of IVF is changing at a very rapid pace. There are new treatments and procedures that can increase your chances of having a child through this process.

A fantastic doctor will make all the difference in your journey. Who you decide to let guide you on your path does matter, and can ultimately increase the probability of good odds in an otherwise gamble-based process. 

Here are a few things the best IVF doctors will have in common:

The Success Rates of Your Chosen Fertility Doctor 

The proof really is in the pudding when it comes to the best fertility doctor. Find a doctor with high success rates and a proven track record of helping couples achieve a live birth. At the end of the day, you need a doctor who can tell you that they can help you achieve a pregnancy that results in a child. 

Success rates are often skewed by various reports in the fertility industry, so just ask your chosen doctor what his statistics are. Always be frank with your doctor so all expectations are on the table. A great fertility doctor will evaluate your case and give you the facts about what’s possible.

Experience

While doctors that are fresh out of school are certainly smart and possibly talented, when it comes to your doctor you need someone with a vast amount of experience. Find a fertility doctor who has been working in the industry for many years.

When most couples can’t afford to do the journey multiple times, it’s important that your doctor gets it right the first time regarding all things in their control. A doctor with great experience will have back up plans for anything that could go wrong because they’ve been here before.

Bedside Manner

No one wants to work with a doctor (no matter their brilliance) if they aren’t personable, genuine, and honest. Find a fertility doctor who shoots straight, but is also kind and patient. Find a doctor who is willing to walk you through the process in regards to what will be happening.

If you continually find yourself feeling silly for asking questions because of how your doctor is responding, then perhaps it’s time to find a new doctor. Find a doctor who can show they care by how they treat you. You will be in long contact with your chosen doctor over the course of your journey, so simply find someone you like. 

The Road Ahead

As you start your journey towards your dreams of creating a family, carefully consider your options when it comes to your fertility doctor. Ensure you are in the best of hands by finding a doctor that is experienced, has high success rates and has good bedside manner.
