How does treatment work?
The Collaborative Care treatment approach combines acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutritional guidance, and is customized based on where you are in the process of trying to get pregnant. We see all of our patients weekly over the course of a monthly / per-cycle treatment program. Weekly appointments with the same practitioner, coupled with our all-inclusive model, helps patients notice and track the changes in their cycles more readily. Treatment can then build on itself accordingly and simply.
Do you treat women undergoing Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART)?
Yes, we have a specialized protocol for women undergoing ART, and our treatment is most effective when we can begin 1-2 months prior to commencing your next FET cycle, and 3-4 months prior to a fresh IVF cycle depending on your case. In general, we see better outcomes when patients receive Chinese medical treatment the month(s) before an IVF/FET cycle.
Do you treat on a per session basis during IVF cycles, or at any other time?
Collaborative Care is a small, specialized Chinese medical fertility clinic. In order to maintain our standard of quality, consistent care we do not treat on a per session basis. We understand there are situations where clients would like the option to schedule same day acupuncture sessions or receive sessions while they are taking fertility medications. We absolutely encourage acupuncture during an active, or current, ART cycle, and will happily refer you to fertility providers or clinics in the area who have the staff to service this need.
Do you treat women not undergoing ART?
Yes, Collaborative Care has developed a proprietary treatment protocol for patients seeking to enhance their fertility health and get pregnant through entirely natural and healthy means. These patients are potentially eligible to participate in the Collaborative Care Qualified Program.
What is your Qualified Program?
Our Qualified Program is Collaborative Care’s proprietary treatment protocol that offers eligible patients the peace of mind that comes from high rates of success, plus a full refund of our fee if they do not become pregnant after completing the program in compliance with program requirements. The Qualified Program is open to patients that are not concurrently receiving ART. Eligibility for participation depends on hormone levels, semen analyses, sperm DNA integrity testing, and other diagnostic testing for potential obstructions/barriers to achieving pregnancy.
Do you treat male factor infertility?
Yes, we provide male-factor fertility support in conjunction with our overall treatment protocol. The amount and type of support will depend on your specific fertility challenges.
What is your fee structure?
For the Monthly treatment program, our all-inclusive fee is $700 for the first month and $600 for the following months. The Qualified Program fee is $8,000 for one year of all-inclusive treatment.
