The clinic [Reproductive Health Center] was great. They were always available, kind, and considerate...There were two times I couldn't get my blood drawn when at the lab because there weren't orders... [Nurse] Holly was amazing. She was knowledgeable and kind. She was always available and never treated me like I was a bother or burden. She was quick and efficient to respond and worked hard to help me with the whole process, including finances and tough choices about non-viable embryos.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
The clinic was great. They were always available, kind, and considerate. Occasionally, I would go to get my blood drawn and the lab wouldn't have the orders from the clinic. It's also important that you fully understand your payment plan, because not all staff have access to that information.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Hutchison was my second infertility doctor. My first made me feel horrible, and didn't care about me or even my results, it only felt like they wanted money. Dr. Hutchison made me feel like it was okay to keep trying, but also like it was okay to stop. He taught me to consider myself, my marriage and my needs, outside of my infertility. He helped me understand I was not my infertility. His whole clinic supported me, were available for questions, fully explained our options, and respected my decisions. No infertility experience is good, but it can be made better or worse by your doctor. Dr. Hutichison does everything he can to make it better.

What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Failed to order appropriate test
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison is honest and trustworthy, kind and compassionate. He makes sure he understands everything about your case, makes sure you understand everything about your case, and then he works with you to get where you want to be. He doesn't claim to know all of the answers, and he'll quickly adjust treatments if they aren't working or if new options become available. He won't give you false hope, or sugar cote the truth, but he will be honest and provide you realistic options for care. After 5 years of fighting infertility, I know that patients need straightforward answers and plausible options, including odds of success. Dr. Hutchison is great at that, even when the truth is hard to hear. He isn't just treating infertility, he's treating patients as whole people. That includes lifestyle, diet, and mental and emotion health. As infertility effects every aspect of your life, this holistic treatment is important. My results were neither quick nor easy, but I couldn't say a single bad thing about Dr. Hutchison.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Don't go in expecting instant results, and be prepared for the sometimes harsh reality of the truth. If you're willing to put in the effort, know that Dr. Hutchison will be too.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had a lot of protocols. The protocols consisted of vitamins, estrogen, progesterone, vaginal suppositories, baby asprin, occasionally antibiotics, subcutaneous injections in the stomach, subcutaneous injections of blood thinners, and sometimes inter-muscular injections in the hips. Side effects included thirst, hot flashes, mood swings, occasional dizziness, and occasional nausea. The treatments were intended to optimize my ability to produce as many eggs as possible during retrieval, or to prepare my body to accept a transferred embryo, and support/maintain a pregnancy after transfer. I got pregnant three times but miscarried twice. After each miscarriage the protocol was adjusted. The final, and successful, protocol was much different than the standard protocol and was intended to strip my body of all estrogen, basically establish a baseline, and build up the optimal conditions from scratch. We are 17 weeks pregnant now.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
Costs varied based on procedure. The Doctor and Holly provided special pricing for every protocol as my circumstances changed. It never felt like it was about the money. They were very flexible about payment plans and helped us get discounted medicine and infertility loans as well.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Hutchison and his sister Holly are incredibly personable and kind. They know your name and your partner's name. The ask you to call them by their first name and they will spend as much time answering questions as you need.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
One full time nurse and a tech of some kind. Nurse is very kind, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Very little time spent with tech, but she is very kind.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
We were happily surprised by our experience with Scot. We saw more of him in the first few weeks of treatment, than we saw of our first doctor during two years of treatment. I did feel a little like hr beat around the bush when answering questions, probably in an attempt not to get locked into one thing. But he is very knowledgeable nnd patient.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Make sure that you do your own research amd homework. If you don't know two right questions to ask, then you won't get the answers you need.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Cycle one: follistim 325 ius, lupron to suppress ovulation, overstimulation, cycle cancelled Cycle two: follistim 200 ius, lupron to suppress, 15 eggs, 6 embryos, 3 genetically Normal embryos, 1 chemical pregnancy, treatment still in progress Transfers: progesterone in oil injections, progesterone vaginal suppositories, oral estrogen, estrogen suppositories, prednisone, baby aspirin
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
Transfers cost approximately $1000 Ivf with pgs costs approximately $9000 for the for cycle, I think $5000 for the second, and I think $3000 for the third

Describe your experience with your nurse.
Holly is amazing. She is organized, so prompt in her communication and responses, makes herself available at all hours not just for technical questions but for a reassuring pep talk if you need it. And Pamela and the rest of the team who support Holly and Scot are equally wonderful.
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Scot is simply wonderful. He starts at the beginning, carefully answering all questions. He is upbeat and positive while managing expectations appropriately. He seems to genuinely care about his patients (both partners) and goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable and cared for.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Choose him over anyone else in Tucson. I started with a different provider and working with Scot was a huge upgrade.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I had tried drugs and IUI with a different provider, so Scot recommending skipping to IVF. We followed a protocol using follistim for egg stimulation, a different drug that I don't recall to prevent premature ovulation, an hcg trigger shot a specific period of time prior to retrieval, and then progesterone prior to and after transfer. I conceived and delivered a beautiful baby boy on the third retrieval after a chemical pregnancy on the first retrieval. Also, Scot and his team emphasize the importance of a good diet during and before fertility treatments and pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
This is difficult to tease apart but something like this... $3,000 to $4,000 per retrieval/transfer cycle in medication costs (to pharmacy). $60 per acupuncture session (to acupuncturist) $3,000 - $5,000 per retrieval and transfer cycle depending on cycle

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
The clinic is great at providing space and time for their clients. The staff is wonderful. They make the client feel like they genuinely care about your situation. One thing that a potential patient might see as a drawback that Dr. H. rarely does fresh transfers which is different from other doctors in town. This is because he's looking for optimal levels before doing to increase the chances of pregnancy. While I understand the diligence of this, it's different than other doctors and during my retrieval I would have just liked to have given it a try, even if the odds were low. We were planning on doing genetic testing and a frozen transfer the following month anyhow so to me it didn't seem like it would have hurt to try a fresh transfer. Another notable difference is that he does not like to transfer more than one embryo unless there's significant reason to do so. This is negotiable to some degree. AND, of course, this IS ethical, best-practice due to the innumerable complications that can come to mother/baby with multiples. Still, some patients may be frustrated with that view after putting so much into the IVF process. Overall, RHC was the most diligent, responsive reproductive clinic I found in Tucson. I appreciated their care while going through this challenging part of our life.

  • Lost paperwork

How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison took interest in my personal journey and what led me to his office. Rather than look at me like a stat and apply a prescription approach, he gave advice and protocols that suited my situation.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Regardless of who you see, I think it's important to ask ALL the questions you have. The doctor should be able to give you thorough answers without making you feel anxious, rushed, or stupid.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
Comparable to other prices in the state for the process/procedures. Did not do frivilous testing but was diligent and thorough.

How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
When we first came to see Dr. Hutchison, we sat down with him as he explained our fertility issues. My husband is not at all biologically inclined. But Dr. Hutchison took the time to explain our issues in a way that a biologically illiterate person could understand. He has calls me himself with results and answers any questions I might have.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
He's not as aggressive as othet doctors. So if your desires are to have quadruplets, he's not the guy for you.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We started with IUIs. We did 3 tries and he explained that statistically, that was all we should do. We moved on to IVF with our own eggs and sperm. The first harvest was successful with lots (almost too many) eggs, half of which fertilized. We opted not to do genetic testing based on price and our health and age. Of that harvest, we did 1 fresh and 6 frozen transfers. It yielded 1 child. Our next round of IVF was unsuccessful. 8 eggs, 4 fertilized and 1 lived to genetically test. It was abnormal. The recommendation from the doctor was to see a nutritionalist. We were recommended to Hana Feeney. Working with her, we have discovered some food sensitivities and have access to higher quality vitamins. Our most recent harvest was 12 eggs, 6 fertilized and 2 were genetically sound. We took a risk and did a fresh transfer without having the results of the genetics test. My hormone levels were perfect and the embryo looked text book perfect they said. I am currently pregnant.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
A harvest, including medication is around $10K. Genetic testing used to be $7K, now is about $3K. Frozen embryo transfers are about $3K, I think.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
Everyone in the clinic works as a team. The entire staff is involved in the process. The clinic truly feels like a family all working towards the same goal for every patient. They are organized and process everything in a timely manner. The clinic is quiet, clean, and inviting.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I felt like a human because every staff member, including Dr. Hutchison, treated us like family. Every staff member knew where we were at in the process, were sympathetic when we miscarried, and offered words of support without us asking. We saw Dr. Hutchison at every visit. He did not delegate any part of the process to his nursing staff. He gave us honest advice and followed the plan we wanted. He did not force us into any decision and did not force us into taking aggressive steps until we were ready. When he had the results of our retrieval and genetic testing, he called us on the weekend to explain the good news. He transferred one embryo because he genuinely cares about a healthy pregnancy. He genuinely cares about giving us the best outcome possible.

How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison genuinely cares about helping us and providing the best outcome possible. He cares about ensuring a healthy pregnancy. Dr. Hutchison answered all questions and concerns were had along the way. If we had concerns, he did not make us feel inferior, he helped us understand and made sure we knew every detail of the process. He treated us with compassion in times of sorrow. He gave my body time to heal after a miscarriage before beginning a new cycle. He took time to watch our embryos develop and waited for my body to heal and recover from the egg retrieval before transfer. Dr. Hutchison listens, he cares, he communicates clearly, and even made phone calls to us on the weekend when needed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Don't wait. Call and make an appointment now. Even if you're not ready for aggressive treatment, he is there to collaborate and help put you on a positive path towards a healthy pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
Our insurance covered some of the cost. We paid our co-pay at each visit. During the IVF process, we coordinated a payment schedule to cover the large amount that our insurance did not cover. The monthly payment was determined by us.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
The waiting room was nice and comfy with private little sofas for each couple. Typical doctor's office with the receptionist behind a sliding glass window. Most of the women running the office are older women.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was very quick in the room and didn't spend a lot of time. Sometimes he forgot my situation and didn't seem to fully remember where we were and how many cycles we've done.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
With just doing IUI's the only nursing staff you saw was the lady who would walk you back to your room. She wouldn't even tell you what to undress (like waist down), just pointed to your room.
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
I first sought treatment with Dr. Hutchison. He did all the infertility testing and had no real reason for our lack of getting pregnant. After my HSG, he said give it 6 more months, so I assumed everything was fine and I would eventually get pregnant. Without a diagnosis I let it go even longer (about another year) because I assumed our fertility was fine. I wish now that he would've suggested IUI right after the HSG. I would've started treatments a lot sooner and perhaps had better success. We did 5 IUI's with him. My husband didn't think Dr. Hutchison was personable. So when we finally decided to move on to IVF we went to a different doctor.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
When you are ready to try IUI or IVF, you need to say when because he will not seek you or push you.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did several IUI's with Clomid and my dosages were upped after the first cycle, but then we had the right amount to produce multiple follicles.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
The cost of an IUI was $600.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
It's hard to find weaknesses - I experienced mostly 'strengths' about the clinic. Every appointment I had was on time (or early if I arrived early). The atmosphere was friendly, yet professional - I felt like I was surrounded by family! They helped me find ways to afford the medications - every aspect of how they run their clinic seems to be geared towards helping patients afford and receive care, while feeling supported during the process. The care is all-inclusive and they don't individually charge for a million things like most other places I researched. They simplified the financial part of the process which helped so much in my making a decision about getting this done. I received full support/instructions on how to give myself injections, etc. Holly Hutchison was on-call for any questions I had (she is absolutely lovely). I even called her on a Sunday with a question - she answered! I have to say this clinic and its staff is fully devoted to their patients - but also giving their patients outstanding support and care!
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
From the very first phone call with Dr. Hutchison, I felt immense support, honesty and encouragement - all of which I needed but didn't even realize how much until I started care with him and his sister (Holly) at the center where they provide services. Dr. Hutchison is hands down one of the best doctors I have ever had. He was very sensitive to my situation, supportive on every level (from the technical/medical aspects of treatment down to logistics on getting affordable care). He communicated with such knowledge and professionalism I felt nothing but immense trust and gratitude for being able to have him as a provider. I had been to a doctor in NYC who was fine - but definitely felt like a number there in comparison. This was a whole new level of support and care. After one egg retrieval I was so impressed and grateful for the experience I planned a second without even blinking. Words cannot describe how much I appreciate doctors like Scot Hutchison. I wish he could be my OB!
Describe your experience with your nurse.
My nurse (who mostly did blood withdrawal) was lovely. At one point there was some minor confusion about exactly how much ganirilex I needed to purchase at the nearby pharmacy, but we cleared it up after getting in touch with Dr. Hutchison.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
I live in NYC but was overwhelmed by the expense and coldness of the fertility Doctors/facilities I met with when I explored the idea of freezing my eggs. I was terrified of moving forward given the circumstances, and looked into other places I might consider. My Mother lives in Tucson, AZ and asked for a recommendation out there to look into and Scot Hutchison came highly recommended. I called to speak with him and from the very first phone call I felt such understanding and support for my personal situation, it eliminated all the fears and anxiety that that came with exploring this option in New York City. As a single woman trying to make a decision about egg freezing past a certain age, there are lots of psychological, financial and emotional challenges in the way. It's weird to be saying this - but talking to Dr. Hutchison for 20 minutes was better than a year of therapy for me - however exaggerated that may sound - but it's true. He explained what the process was, what I could expect, and was supportive of my reasons and concerns regarding egg freezing. When I arrived at the clinic for the first appointment I finally got to meet him in person. He was just as warm, kind and helpful as he was over the phone. Dr. Hutchison truly took the time to explain the process and answer any questions I had, with complete patience and professionalism. Every subsequent appointment was like this down to the very egg retrieval itself - my trust was not misplaced. I wish I had a doctor like him watching over my care on a regular basis! I immediately booked a 2nd egg retrieval after my experience with Dr. Hutchison.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Get ready to be completely taken care of - you are in excellent hands.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For the first egg retrieval, I was asked to go on the pill until a certain date - this was to plan around a certain date for the retrieval and to I think give my ovaries a bit of a rest. :) According to my age and history, Dr. Hutchison prescribed Menopur and ganirilex, accordingly. He had me come in a day early for one of my sonograms as my eggs started to look as if they were 'ready' a little more quickly than thought (at least that was my understanding although I'm sure the technical medical terminology used was different than how I've described) :) . All appointments were changed according to what was going on with my body reacting to the hormones, and at one point additional ganirilex was prescribed. Although I was told a number of eggs would be retrieved but not all might be mature, they managed to keep me on a dosage and schedule that resulted in all eggs retrieved also being mature - so I kept all that came out!
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
The treatment was all-inclusive except for one additional blood test I had to do outside the norm to be sure they were timing everything correctly (the cost was minimal - something like $50). Otherwise, treatment was just around $3000. Amazing as the list of treatments involved in New York were closer to $6000 and they charge per procedure in every way they could. The clinic also provided options for me to purchase the drugs/hormones necessary for treatment at an amazing price, which ended up costing around $2000. This is a fraction of what it would have cost me elsewhere. They really make a huge effort to help patients afford care!

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Hutchison always made me feel as though I was a top priority and that he valued all aspects of my well being. Having been through fertility issues himself, he is just as knowledgable about the emotional concerns as he is about the medical side. I've always felt supported knowing that he was available by phone whenever questions or concerns arose. Holly (his sister and the practice coordinator) spent so much time helping us with nutrition and lifestyle changes. She has that same great mix of empathy, intellect, and good judgment that must run in the Hutchison family! They both have many years of experience and I trust them to help me navigate through this challenging process.

How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison is a very honest and compassionate doctor. Although my IVF cycle was not successful, I believe that he did everything he could for me. From the beginning, he was very straightforward about the various challenges of my particular case. He always set realistic expectations and has helped me to begin to consider alternative options beyond IVF. One thing to consider is that he is relatively conservative in his approach. He has good reasoning for his philosophy and communicates it well. Dr. Hutchison has been practicing long enough to watch the fertility field evolve. He is well-respected in the community and the University of Arizona medical residents train in his practice. Dr. Hutchison's pricing is affordable and transparent. His counseling is not influenced by financial incentive, but by what is in the best interest of the patient.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Holly will give out lots of information on how to obtain medications for the most affordable prices possible. This does require some extra legwork and responsibility on the part of the patient. This shouldn't be a problem as long as you stay organized and make sure to place your orders well in advance.

Describe your experience with Reproductive Health Center.
The clinic is small and personable. They do not have every possible bell and whistle of some other clinics (HSGs are done off site, there is no online patient portal) but their pricing is beyond fair. I never once had a problem with records or billing, and only occasionally had to remind staff about a detail of my case. I think it's important to realize this is a small family practice with only one RE, so they do close for the holidays and at select other times in the year. Being a small practice, they also do retrievals in monthly batches which sometimes means waiting to start a cycle. However, I was always treated like a person rather than a number, and the doctor personally did all of my procedures, including ultrasounds.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The clinic is a small family practice and I developed a good relationship with the doctor, my IVF coordinator (Holly) and the front office staff (Carol). I was always greeted by name and staff would ask about my husband by name when he was not with me. We would also talk about my work or vacations we had taken.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I worked primarily with Holly, the clinic's IVF coordinator (and the doctor's sister!). She was extremely patient with my endless research and questions, and made herself available by email and text message. She was there for nearly all of my ultrasounds and blood draws, and particularly good with a butterfly needle. I really felt that she was invested in my case. She was very positive and encouraging and advised me as if I were her daughter on many occasions. When Holly was unavailable, Pamela did my blood draws and was also very kind.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to inform you of changes in protocol
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison is very thorough and patient, and an educator at heart. We came to him prior to beginning treatment and after consulting with the other two REs in town. He did a complete review of my file and suggested we repeat the HSG procedure as a result of complications with my previous test. He explained the how and why of what he wanted to do and we decided on the spot to pursue an IUI cycle. He listened to my concerns about my menstrual cycle and adjusted my medications for the IUI cycle accordingly. Later we moved on to IVF and completed two retrieval cycles. Based on my age, health, and test results we all expected a great result from the first cycle, but I under-performed. In our followup consultation Dr. Hutchison was compassionate and receptive to my desire to do a second cycle right away, with changes to protocol. As a result my dosages were increased and a steroid added. When the second cycle resulted in a similar outcome, we were given the option to do a third retrieval or proceed with a transfer. When we chose to proceed with the transfer, he was again receptive to concerns we had about the protocol and open to a natural cycle FET. In general, I felt like I was given options at every step and the decision left up to me and my husband. We never felt rushed or pushed into a course of treatment. I was very active in understanding our treatment and making decisions about our care, and felt heard. In our experience, Dr. Hutchison is not one to tell you what to do which may work well for some but not others.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Do your homework and ask lots of questions. There are endless variations to ART treatments and he was always happy to listen to my questions and explain his position on various topics based on current research. I appreciated that during our treatment he was actively attending industry conferences and teaching others (often other doctors were shadowing him at my appointments) and that as a result he sometimes changed our treatment plan accordingly.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
For our IUI cycle I took 5mg Femara (Letrozole) on cycle days 3-7 and used an Ovidrel trigger. I had never used Clomid and he advised against it based on evidence of a luteal phase defect. For our first retrieval cycle I was on a fairly typical regimen of birth control for several weeks followed by 11 days of Follistim and Menopur at relatively low doses (150IU and 75IU). I used a dual trigger (hCG and Lupron). We retrieved 10 eggs, 5 of which were mature and fertilized with ICSI. 2 were biopsied and frozen on day 6 and deemed PGS normal. We chose to do a second retrieval to hopefully bank more embryos and repeated the protocol with the following changes: Menopur was increased to 150IU, 1mg of Dexamethasone was added, and we triggered with Lupron only due to higher estrogen levels. Despite the changes and promising scans and blood work, we retrieved 10 eggs again. This time 6 were mature and fertilized with ICSI, but only 1 was biopsied and frozen on day 6. It was also PGS normal. Prior to attempting a transfer, we were encouraged to do an endometrial receptivity test and thus did a mock cycle. After discussion with both Dr. Hutchison and Holly we were approved to do a natural cycle even though a medicated cycle is more common. I was closely monitored for my LH surge and took only supplemental (vaginal) progesterone during the cycle. The test results were receptive and we continued straight into an elective single embryo transfer cycle using the same natural cycle protocol.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
The cost of a medicated and monitored IUI cycle was $540, plus the cost of meds (~$100). The cost of our first retrieval cycle was $6,800 which included the $800 fee to biopsy our embryos for PGS testing. The actual PGS testing was handled by Progenesis at a cost of $350 per embryo plus shipping. Our second retrieval cycle was discounted to $4000. We did not do a third, but it would have been $3000. Between our first and second cycles they began charging a credit card processing fee. For our ERA cycle we paid a specialist copay to our insurance for each monitoring and the biopsy, as well as $600 to Igenomix for the testing. Our transfer cycle was included in the price of our retrieval cycles so there were no additional charges for the monitoring appointments or the transfer itself. If you elect not to do PGS, there is a $1000 fee for transfer. Our only other costs were $350 to bank a sperm sample for back up, and $350/year for embryo storage beginning the July after retrieval.

While I rarely had to wait longer than a week for an appointment, when I was scheduling testing and the doctor was out of town, I would sometimes have to wait an extra month. For new patients, consider that some things take time with this clinic and be aware. The clinic also doesn't call to confirm appointments, so make sure to write them down when you schedule them, or feel free to call to double check times as needed. As strengths, the clinic is comfortable and personable. I always felt welcome there and rarely had to wait longer than a few minutes to be seen. The clinic is very team oriented and they all seem to enjoy their jobs.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The Reproductive Health Center is small and extremely personal. I have felt known by the entire staff and my time was always respected. Dr. Hutchison has always taken the time to call me back personally, have as many follow up appointments as needed to answer my questions. He is warm and kind, and I do feel genuinely cared about in his care.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
As stated before, this is a small clinic. I only ever dealt with 2 nurses there. One is the main nurse and she is great! She is warm, helpful, an expert at taking blood, and she gives great tips. Occasionally she has called me back for the doctor and always answers my questions thoroughly. She was also the nurse during my retrieval, and I appreciated her compassion and care. The other nurse I spoke with helped me secure medication from over the border by translating for me with the pharmacy. She called me back to remind me of things I would need when purchasing the Menopur, she was a huge help!
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison is kind, warm, and caring. I know his practice is busy and I never feel like he is rushing or trying to get me out of the way. My husband has also liked him from the get go. He is very optimistic, and provides a lot of information when asked. Sometimes I wish that I wouldn’t have to ask to get answers, and he would be more up front with possible scenarios, alternatives to treatment, and side effects. Overall, I’ve been very pleased with his care and I sincerely do trust him. We’ve been seeing him for about a year now, he was referred by a friend. He has gone out of his way to schedule appointments on weekends and random times when I had difficulty finding time. I appreciate that he always calls me back if I have a question. We kept missing each other one time and he called me 3 days in a row until he reached me. He is the only RE at his practice, so if he is out of time, sometimes I had to wait a little longer to get things done, such as testing.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Come with questions prepared and be open to following up with more as needed through phone calls.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Before doing any treatments, Dr. Hutchison is big on health and supplements. He encourages Vitamin D and no drinking alcohol for both partners, no caffeine, and he told me to start Co-q10 to help with egg quality early on. I also started taking DHEA. Despite Dr. Hutchison suggesting an IUI, my husband and I opted to try IVF first to ideally bank embryos since I have diminished ovarian reserve. He put me on a DOR protocol- 300 units of Folistim each day and 150 units of Menopur plus Ganirelex (don’t recall the dosage) for the second half of the cycle. The first 5 days of the cycle, I also used a Testosterone patch. Monitoring went well, he predicted 6-8 eggs. I ended up doing only 9 days of injections because of the size of the follicles. He retrieved 6 eggs, all were mature. 5 fertilized, but none made it to 5 day blastocyst. They thought 1 or 2 might make it, but that did not happen. There was not really an explanation for why. Since then, we opted to try an IUI because I have a narrow cervix. For that, I took Letrozole (low dosage) for 5 days, then went in for monitoring on cycle day 9. I had 2 follicles on both sides that were a good size for ovulation. Then I did an Ovidrel trigger shot about 32 hours before the IUI. We are still waiting on our results.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
My initial testing was covered under my insurance, so I had to just pay a co-pay when I went in ($60 each time), plus the cost of the test. I paid under $300 for all the testing. For an IUI, it was $565. For our IVF cycle, we chose an entire package that included the monitoring appointments, retrieval, anesthesia, ICSI, and biopsy for PGS was $6800. Our embryos didn't make it to be biopsied, so we were credited $800. All of their prices are on their website and they are very transparent.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He took time to talk to me and address any questions I had. I felt like I could ask anything and the allotted appointment time was not a factor in getting them answered.
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
He was very warm and friendly. I felt completely at ease with him. He seemed genuinely interested in helping us and was knowledgeable in how to help us. I liked that he told us every step of the way what he was doing and why he was doing it. He caught our male factor infertility that our first doctor completely missed. Our first doctor only wanted to try IUI a couple times, but then go straight to invitro without exploring everything. Dr. Hutchison took time to run all the tests and try to catch everything he could before resorting to invitro. We treated my husband and then tried an IUI. As part of our IUI, he didn't require us to immediately use chlomid, but let me have a natural cycle, since there was nothing wrong with me. It only took one cycle after treating my husband for us to get pregnant.
Describe the protocols Scot Hutchison used in your cycles and their degree of success.
After referring us to a urologist to get my husband treated, I did an unmedicated cycle our first time with IUI. Dr. Hutchison is not a proponent of multiples in pregnancy, which is better for the mother's health. Since I was healthy, he allowed me to not use chlomid. He saw me almost daily for ultrasounds leading up to ovulation and the day before He was pretty sure I would ovulate, injected me with some hormone to be sure I ovulated the next day. We then did IUI, and it resulted in pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
After insurance, we paid about $150 per visit, depending on if they did an ultrasound or not. The cost of the blood work that was ordered was surprising. I didn't have any idea that some of the tests would cost over $800. I wish they would have warned us about that (I still would have gone through with it anyway) The rest of the costs were as expected. They usually told us how much each visit would run us before we even showed up for the visit.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He took time to get to know me and what my expectations were.
How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
What I appreciated most was his honesty and forthrightness about expected results. He told me we could try three IUIs and that any more than that would not (statistically) yield positive results. When the third test came back negative, he told me he would do another IUI if that's what I wanted, but he would not encourage it. He didn't try to get me to spend more money for needless procedures and he never preyed on my fragile emotional state during infertility.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Be willing to listen to his advice. He cares deeply about his patients and the welfare of the child they hope to carry. While the woman is his patient on paper, his concern is also with the baby. If you hate salmon (like I do), but he tells you the benefits of eating salmon both before and during pregnancy, be willing to try it.

In my case, my body only responds to Menopur, an injectable. Depending on if I was doing an IUI or IVF i would use 2-4 viles daily for 5-12 days. With this medicine, I would start to produce follicles. Once I had follicles we were able to proceed with treatments.

How was your experience with Scot Hutchison?
Dr. Hutchison was transparent, warm, and attentive. He gave me a lot of details and information about what his recommendations/diagnoses were based on, which I found helpful, especially since they were not the same as my previous doctor's. This transparency was part of why I trusted his recommendations. I also appreciated that he gave me a range of possible interventions, from less to more aggressive, rather than jumping straight to invasive procedures.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Scot Hutchison?
Ask a lot of questions.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Scot Hutchison.
My medication and diagnostics were covered by insurance.
