So new clinic is a bust.. For one, the girl didn't seemed too pressed to give me any info and talked to me like I was an idiot.. So that left a bad taste in my mouth from jump.. Convo went something like this:
Me: Hi (insert rude girls name) I was calling to get more information on a doing an IVF cycle with a surrogate at your clinic. I reviewed the info on your website but it doesn't say what the $9,000.00 covers for the surrogate cycle.
Her: You have to find your own surrogate it doesn't include that.
Me: Umm, I know that, we already have a surrogate. I want to know what the $9,000.00 covers.
Her: The cycle... *enter crickets chirping*
Her: Well it doesn't cover compensation to the surrogate ma'am. It covers the cycle.
Me: OK look can you tell me if it includes the monitoring, if so for who, and each thing that would be covered.
Her: It covers retrieval, monitoring and the things associated with an ivf cycle.
Me: ICSI? Her: oh no that's extra (Now I am looking at my phone mouthing cuss words at it!) Me: Assisted Hatching? Her: NOPE... *again crickets*
Me: So it's monitoring, retrieval, transfer to surrogate and that's it?
Her: I said that, the cycle, do you have any other questions?
Me: How much is ICSI and Assisted Hatching??
Her: I dunno, I don't have it in front of me, anything else?
Me: YES how much is ICSI and AH??
Her: (huffs and puffs) hold on.... ICSI is $2,000 AH is 750
Me: Is the freezing included in the cycle costs?
Her: How do you know you will have anything to freeze?
Her: $1500.00 is that it now??
I was TIRED after that conversation... So now I need to narrow it down to ONE so I can know what we need to save and get moving on it! We are saving currently, but we are just stashing money and have no clue what we need to have in order to proceed since we have no clinic, lol! So that's the plan.. At least with my old clinic I knew what to expect with the rudeness and disorganization... I have a consult set with the 4hr away clinic for later this month.. I am just ready to know which place so I can move on to the next phase!
