INTEGRIS Bennett Fertility

Why Choose Us?

Choosing a qualified fertility clinic may be a daunting task. While information on clinics through Web search engines is widely available, relevant information often is not. Patients seeking infertility treatment options that are expensive, potentially risky, and emotionally draining, should carefully inquire about the qualifications of the clinic they wish to use. The following questions should be asked when searching for a suitable fertility clinic:

  • Is the laboratory in the clinic certified by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and has it passed inspection by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of 1988 (CLIA)?
  • Is the clinic a member of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)?
  • Is the laboratory headed by a qualified individual for high complexity laboratories (HCLD) with a Ph.D.?
  • Is the clinic directed by a qualified physician who is board-certified in reproductive endocrinology and infertility (REI)?
  • Are the clinic care-givers experienced and well-trained?
  • Is the care personalized? Are the clinic providers compassionate with patients and passionate about their work?
  • Are the clinic’s hours of operation accommodating to patients?
  • Does the clinic adhere to strict ethical and moral standards?
  • Does the clinic provide statistics about success rates of its assisted reproduction procedures
  • How do these statistics compare to the national average?
  • How expensive are the treatments? Are financial arrangements possible?
