Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
Victoria is amazing. As well as the financial counselor. They all work as a team. And dr jui I think his name is was very friendly. Weakness I would say is to do a bit more of a follow up on failed cycles. That is when the patient needs support the most.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Mansfield talked to me in a way that no other provider has talked to me. The questions that I felt were stupid were explained in a kind manner by Dr Mansfield. She really became a friend during this hard process.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Frances was so amazing. Very kind and did a good job at her profession. Brooke was ok. Not very personable. After my first failed cycle I felt that Brooke stopped caring. For example I wanted to see dr Mansfield for a follow up appointment and was scheduled like two weeks from the fail which made me sad considering I had been seeing her everyday. The new nurse Jennifer I believe her name was, was very kind. She made me feel at ease during my second transfer.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
She was amazing. I was always happy and she made me feel that infertility was no my fault.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Be ready to get attached to her. Then when you get pregnant you leave he office to regular OB and miss her.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I have stage four endo. She first did a laparoscopy and removed my left tube. We both knew I would need ivf. We approached stiming in a aggressive manner because my endo was so bad and my egg reserve was dimished because of it. I don't recall the medications. It was a lot of pokes but all very worth it.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
I don't really remember. Luckily my insurance at that time covered just about everything.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Mansfield was very compassionate to our situation and recommended all the appropriate testing needed to accurately decide what the next step was for us.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The staff is very knowledgable and compassionate. I always felt like they genuinely cared about me and my outcome.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Prior to seeing Dr. Mansfield I had 2 failed IUI's and 1 failed IVF with another doctor. After seeing Doctor Mansfield and hearing all of her recommendations for testing prior to treatment, everything seemed to come together. My thyroid levels were off, my egg reserve was low and I was a carrier for a genetic condition that could both cause my diminished ovarian reserve and affect my children. None of this had been diagnosed with the previous Doctor. Due to these results they were able to dictate my plan of care much more accurately. I was placed on a much higher dose of medication for my IVF cycle then I was for my first and I had a much better outcome. I am currently pregnant and I owe it all to Dr. Mansfield, and her team!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
You will not regret seeing her!
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IVF Microdose Flare protocol 300units Gonal F once daily 150units Menopur once daily 10unit Microdose Lupron twice daily Needed to be on a higher dose due to low AMH and low antral follicle count. Produced 5 eggs, had 3 Mature, 3 fertilized and 2 progressed to day 5 Blastocyst.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
They are always willing to work around my schedule and were very flexible.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
I do not have coverage for fertility treatments, so I paid out of pocket for my treatments. They are reasonably priced and come in way below most clinic across the country.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
She is the most caring and sincere doctor i have ever encountered. While our outcome of miscarriage was not what we were expecting, she showed us deep sympathy during this time. She hugged me and reassured me that we would figure this out.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Jen, Leah and Francis have all gone above and beyond helping us with anything we needed. They show compassion in ways i didn't even think was possible. They share in your victories and were crushed with our miscarriage. They truly care about their patients.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield truly loves what she does and doesn't give up. We have had a couple unexpected issues pop up along the way and she handles it with ease. She comes up with a new game plan and we continue on our way. I am confident that one day soon we will have the family we have dreamt of and it will all be because of her.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Fertility treatment has so many ups and downs. Do not get discouraged if the first cycle doesn't work. Dr. Mansfield truly cares about each of her patients and will work hard to find solutions to anything that may pop up.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IVF cycle 1- Lupron, Follistim, Menopur- standard doses; poor responder and poor egg quality. Only had 1 , 5 day old embryo make it to freeze. IVF cycle 2- DHEA and CoQ10 for three months, started with testosterone priming for three weeks, then did a mini-lupron flare cycle with HGH. I had a much better response and had 7, 5 day old embryos frozen. FET-Progesterone injections and estrace pills until lining was adequate, transferred two embryos and received our very first positive pregnancy results. Unfortunately i miscarried at 6 weeks. We are waiting for the fetal tissue results to come back to determine our next step.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Mansfield and her staff have a very patient-centered approach. I have never felt like just a number in their office. The receptionists, nurses and doctor all know me by name and take the necessary time to explain procedures and answer questions. They make you feel comfortable and celebrate good news with you, but also feel your pain when you get bad news.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Leah was the nurse we dealt with most often and she is amazing. She seems to know as much about infertility and treatments as much as Dr. Manfield does. She can answer most all of our questions and was very knowledgeable about our medication and costs as well.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
You can tell the first time you speak with Dr Mansfield that she is knowledgeable in her field and loves what she does. She is an excellent communicator and is always friendly and answers every question with detail. My husband and I have been through three stimulation cycles with timed intercourse, one fresh cycle IVF, and have begun a frozen cycle IVF that is not yet completed. I can't imagine going through this process with another doctor. Anytime we encountered a road block in our treatments, she took the time to sit down with us and re-group and change course if needed. She gives us hope but also lets us know the chances and what could go wrong. My husband and I feel very comfortable with Dr Mansfield and her staff.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Don't hesitate to make an appointment to sit down and talk with her. She will likely order a few basic tests to give her a rundown of your reproductive health. You will get a better idea of what treatments you may need and you will have more peace of mind. Wondering about your infertility can give you so much stress, so it's better to find out why. Dr Mansfield will give you hope and cheer you on in your journey.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Monitoring appointments for me usually begin by being brought back for blood work. While I am getting blood drawn, they usually are preparing the ultrasound room. They work as a well oiled machine and I am never in the office for more than 30 min.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
The cost of our care was not covered by our insurance so we had to pay out of pocket for most medications and treatments.

They have a phlebotomist on site who is super gentle and polite...My IVF cycles ranged from $4500 to $6000, not including medications. Some tests (HSG) that were preformed prior to the first IVF costs approximately $500-$600. Some further lab work not covered by insurance cost about $350...Jennifer took the time to show me everything I needed to know regarding giving myself injections. She also made sure I was emotionally prepared and that I had all the resources I needed when things weren't going as planned or as we had hoped. She worked with me when I was getting medications from several different pharmacies to save on my costs.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield took the time to explain in great length to my husband and I our options and her opinions on which treatments were best for us. She was able to answer all of our questions. And she told us when she thought we should try other avenues. She was always concerned for my emotional well being, which showed she actually cares for you as a person not just a patient.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Ask lots of questions. Dr. Mansfield is very knowledgeable and she will help you understand the process and what exactly is taking place.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
IVF 1- Antagonist Protocol, we kept having to increase my doses to the maximum amount in order to get the follicles growing. 4 eggs were retrieved, 3 were mature, 2 fertilized, and 2 transferred on Day 3. No pregnancy. IVF 2- Microdose Flare Protocol, still maximum dosage of drugs to get follicles growing. Only 2 eggs retrieved, 1 fertilized, and 1 transferred on Day 3. Positive pregnancy, however ended with miscarriage. IVF 3- Microdose Flare Protocol with Testosterone injections prior. This saw the best and most follicles growing out of all my cycles and I had the best estrogen numbers. But only 2 eggs retrieved, both were mature and fertilized via ICSI, only 1 divided properly for Day 3 transfer. No pregnancy.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
My IVF cycles ranged from $4500 to $6000, not including medications. Some tests (HSG) that were preformed prior to the first IVF costs approximately $500-$600. Some further lab work not covered by insurance cost about $350.

They also get your blood tests done on site, they don't have to send it out to las and wait for results.

Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
I liked that in every visit the wait time was no longer than 10 minutes. The amenities are great (e.g. Water, coffee etc). Staff is friendly and well organized. The clinic also has great lab equipments and personal. For example, with previous doctor I had to go to a separate location to get HSG testing. They also get your blood tests done on site, they don't have to send it out to las and wait for results. A weakness would be, perhaps not having another doctor on site in case Dr. Mansfield gets called to an emergency. On one of the check ups an NP had to check my ovulation process and it was not the same as getting the care from her.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Mansfield and her staff were always friendly. They seemed to be always present. There were times were the Doctor would talk really fast but would gladly repeat when asked.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Always friendly and very kind.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield is very professional and knowledgeable. She was also open to any questions. She was very good at giving us many options and directions I which to go. We visited Dr. Mansfield for a second opinion and immediately felt at ease and we noticed the difference from previous doctor. Although, we were diagnosed unexplained, she was very good at giving us many options to try first before IVF. Finally, she is extremely friendly and very outgoing. Going through a difficult situation like infertility, posivite energy is needed. She has it.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Have a list of questions. She will be patient in answering every single one.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Once we decided to do IUI we paid in advanced. Before the IUI I took clomid (I believe) starting second day of menstrual cycle. I also ordered a trigger shot in case I needed it before ovulation. After the 8th day they monitored by ovulation. Since I might ovulate over the weekend, she has someone on call once I got a positive ovulation test kit. Once I got a positive I called "on call" number and a NP was able to schedule my IUI for a Monday. After IUI they scheduled a free pregnancy test. The trigger shot was never used because she monitored hormone level through blood work.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
Our IUI procedure costed 1,000, not including medication. With my insurance a visit is $30. Since we went to see Dr. Mansfield for a second opinion, the consult was free.

Also, they run some of the lab work in house, so you can get results within a few hours. I was typically greeted by name and always with a smile. Many times, I barely sat down before they called me back. On the occasions when there was a wait, it was short.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Mansfield is very compassionate and reassuring, while being completely honest in explaining what she believes our issues are and the hurdles we may be facing. She is straightforward and open to questions. She does an excellent job of remembering one's history. She never made me feel like she had somewhere else to be and was very patient with me when I hammered her on what I believed were immunologic components of our recurrent pregnancy loss.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff members are all very kind and friendly. They always take the time to answer my questions and guide me through the process. They are reassuring and supportive when required and equally excited when something good happens.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr Mansfield is incredibly warm and welcoming. I believe she is very knowledgeable and uses research to guide her practice, rather than old or unproven theories. I feel confident in her treatment recommendations. As many of us are when facing problems with reproduction and infertility, I felt I was relatively well educated and well read when I first met Dr Mansfield. She showed me kindness and patience while I asked her numerous questions related to various things I had come across. She never made me feel silly for asking her about something (hello, pineapple core!). She refers to research when appropriate, tells you when she doesn't think something is useful but also doesn't find it harmful to try, and encourages you to not do things that she believes will be detrimental to your journey. When I specifically questioned Dr Mansfield about a line of treatment I felt sure I needed, she held true to her belief that our primary issue was one of egg quality. She didn't discount my feelings, but after more than a year of being under her care, it turns out she was absolutely correct about egg quality (and chromosomal errors) being a primary problem for us.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Go see her! It will be worth it!
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Clomid 100 mg/Timed Intercourse (2 follicles, no pregnancy) Clomid 100 mg/IUI (4 follicles, no pregnancy) Clomid 100 mg/IUI (2 follicles, no pregnancy) Decision made to move to IVF to allow PGS testing: IVF #1- Antagonist (225-300 FSH daily), Lupron trigger (high risk for OHSS) We got 18 eggs, but only 6 were mature. Three embryos cleaved and all 3 made it to blastocyst and were biopsied for PGS testing. All 3 were abnormal. IVF #2- Lupron Down Reg (450 FSH daily)- protocol was changed due to abnormally high number of immature eggs on Antagonist cycle. We got 31 eggs, 19 mature, 18 embryos, 13 blastocysts. Nine of them were biopsied for PGS and 5 of them came back normal! All embryos are frozen, and we have not attempted a transfer yet.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
Dr Mansfield's costs for care were on the lower end of the ranges I found for my area and significantly less than many clinics (such as those in Colorado, California, and on the East Coast).

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield is warm and understanding. She demonstrates extreme knowledge and isn't afraid to do what it takes to reach our goal. She is the perfect combination of blunt information in a compassionate and caring manor.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
To not be afraid to ask questions and call them later with questions. Don't worry about being annoying. They are supper supportive and understand that this is a crazy process that brings up lots of questions along the way.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My first cycle was a surprising fail. I didn't respond well to the drugs despite being 26, supper health, and normal test results. My first cycle, I had no embryos make it to transfer. After my meeting she said we are not going to be conservative and we are going to throw everything she has at me to achieve my goal. I primed with testosterone for 4 weeks then did a flair cycle with HGH. It resulted is 12 eggs and 4 5 day embryos. We transferred 2 and got pregnant with one! Sadly I miscarries at 9 weeks. We tested the fetal tissue and found out it was a chromosome problem. I am getting ready to start another stem cycle with the same plan. This time though we will be testing all the embryos for chromosome abnormalities and doing a frozen transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
Out side the medication the care cost was about 6500 from start to finish of an IVF cycle (up through embryo transfer and all appointments after)

The only good thing about the clinic [Arizona Reproductive Institute] is Victoria up front. Everyone is like a robot- an unhappy robot. Appointment times are never on time, and as soon as you see the doctor you are immediately rushed into a room to talk $. They push IVF from the second you walk in. They are a machine churning out pregnancies for money. You are not important. They want to get you in and out- so they just over push IVF.

Describe your experience with Arizona Reproductive Institute.
The only good thing about the clinic is Victoria up front. Everyone is like a robot- an unhappy robot. Appointment times are never on time, and as soon as you see the doctor you are immediately rushed into a room to talk $. They push IVF from the second you walk in. They are a machine churning out pregnancies for money. You are not important. They want to get you in and out- so they just over push IVF.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I never received more than 15 minutes face time with the doctor. She never returned a single call or email from me, and was running 45 minutes behind for every appointment. When requesting my file to see another doctor, notes and dates were all wrong.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
She was always running around overwhelmed. They must be under staffed. They never knew who I was. Many times prescriptions were forgotten to be sent.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Lost results
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
  • Failed to consider drug intolerance
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
She is very optimistic, but never really answers questions. She just tells you what you are going to do next like a cheerleader. She would say to get dressed and she would see me in a minute, but never come back. I would be left with questions and no answers from her staff.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
You almost have to already know the process to see her. She skips over all of the details. Study up big time!
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Clomid and a trigger shot, very basic. However after one unsuccessful round she was pushing us straight to IVF. She never told me I had a narrow cervix and needed help with dialation for sperm to get in, or even discussed IUI
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
$300/ visist to her, $175/ ultrasound, $7500 IVF, $900 IUI

Clinic is beautiful and clean, which is important. I like that I could have my blood drawn right in the office. New patients will feel comfortable and well taken care of.

Dr. Mansfield and her staff are incredibly warm, caring, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The entire staff at Dr. Mansfield's office is caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield listened to all of our questions and concerns. She patiently described in detail every test and procedure. She remained positive but also gave us the realistic data that we needed to hear. Dr. Mansfield is friendly, caring, and capable.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Save up money first so you don't have to stop getting treatments before your desired outcome.
Describe the protocols Christine Mansfield used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We began with a progesterone induced period and then Clomid (2 tablets) to stimulate my ovaries as I had not been cycling on my own for 2 years. Two eggs developed and we did an IUI procedure after an HCG trigger shot. This resulted in a negative pregnancy test. We tried Clomid again but my ovaries did not respond this time. We switched to Femara, and again, my ovaries did not respond, so we were unable to attempt an IUI. Dr. Mansfield advised against trying IUI with injectables, as my ovarian reserve is very high, I have many follicles on my ovaries because of PCOS and she thought that the injectables would overstimulate my ovaries. She feels that IVF is our only option.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
My initial testing was covered by my insurance. The IUI was $900 plus meds.

I paid one cost for the entire cycle of my IUI, this was helpful because I knew nothing was going to pop up and cost more.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield has a great energy about her. She makes me feel positive even when I am not a generally positive person. She makes me feel like there is hope for me in my situation. She does her best to do every procedure in the IUI process-- even the ultrasounds. It's rare when she isn't able to be there, and I appreciate the level of care I feel she provides.

Trust her and her knowledge. She wants the best for her patients and she knows what to do for you.

Christine is always warm and caring, encouraging, a good listener, and enthusiastic about her job.
How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Christine always seemed glad to see me, was very caring and sweet, but also very candid and didn't beat around the bush. The only slightly confusing party of her communication was that, after an examination, she would say "we'll meet you right across the hall" but then I wouldn't actually see her again that visit. I learned that that just meant "you're all done." :)

Don't be overwhelmed by her chipper enthusiasm, and speak up with any questions. And don't be surprised when she isn't "across the hall" waiting for you like it sounded like she would be.

How was your experience with Christine Mansfield?
Dr. Mansfield was generally friendly and seemed competent. I did however feel a little blindsided by one of my tests (the HCG). I didn't know that it was going to be so painful, and afterwards, I didn't know that it was not a cause for concern that I was bleeding. I also got bad news during the test (tubal blockage), and really wanted her to stay and explain what that meant. To me, it felt like she rushed out without realizing how upsetting and confusing the news was to me. I also got a second opinion that was a very different diagnosis and prescribed treatment. Given that I have since gotten pregnant with minimal intervention, it seems like the her recommendation (removing one or possible 2 tubes) was more aggressive than necessary.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Christine Mansfield?
Get a second opinion.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Christine Mansfield.
I did not end up need any treatments that weren't covered by insurance.

It sometimes takes them [Arizona Reproductive Institute] a while to answer the phone or return messages. The IVF schedulers are so great, always available to answer questions via email or phone. No matter how silly you think the question is.... So thoughtful and attentive. I almost passed out when having blood taken and they made sure I got water and was ok before I even left the room.... She took the time to read my history, medical records and charts before meeting with me. It showed that she truly cares!

Jen [a nurse at Vivere Arizona] was a great and quick email contact -my primary method of communication. She also did a good job of making sure all of my intensive paperwork got where it was supposed to go.... It’s a small clinic and you will get a lot of personal attention. The only drawback to that is that they aren’t open on weekend so this limits some treatment options I feel.
