  • Before we get into today’s topic, I’d love to hear your personal infertility story.
  • Let’s do a deep dive into the reasons why listeners should seek out a second opinion regarding their fertility.
    • Non-life threatening situations where customers are left to make their own choices
    • Mostly self-paid, so providers have no incentive to save on cost
    • High failure rate, and the quickest approach might not be the best
    • Care is complicated when he has the medical problem but she is the patient
    • Care is multidisciplinary but not all clinics have the right experts on staff

    • Differing technologies and protocols
  • Other than what you’ve already discussed, are there certain signs it’s time for a second opinion?
  • How can a patient prepare to receive a second opinion? What information and paperwork do they need to gather from their current clinic?
  • What should a patient expect from a second opinion?
