Experience with Arizona Associates for Reproductive Health

    Hi everyone,

    I’m currently looking for fertility centers in AZ and came across Arizona Associates. What I’ve read so far is that they have offices in Scottsdale and Gilbert but I don’t know if both of them have an IVF laboratory or are just consultations? Because honestly, I’m exclusively looking for fertility centers in which I don’t need to travel for treatment.

    I’d also like to know if they perform surgical procedures directly at the clinic. I’m an endometriosis patient and would like to get surgery before starting an IVF cycle.

  2. Hi Cass,

    I’m also an endometriosis patient but wasn’t aware of this before. I always wondered why I had so severe period cramps but my GYN never mentioned anything about this condition. She only prescribed pain killers and that’s it. So apart from the pain my husband and I were also struggling to conceive. So, during our consultation, the doctor finally diagnosed me with endometriosis and suggested a laparoscopy first. We got pregnant during the first IVF cycle and we would definitely recommend this clinic for anyone (especially for women with endometriosis history).

    • Hi BBQ

      thanks for your comment. What does a laparoscopy look like? Is this an outpatient surgery or do I need to stay hospitalized? Do you know if health insurances cover any additional techniques apart from fertility treatments themselves?

    • Hi Cass,

      a laparoscopy is usually performed on an outpatient basis. However, in cases of a more complex or lengthy surgery procedure, you might be required to stay overnight.

      For more information about the treatment of endometriosis and possible fertility treatments, I recommend the following posts:

      Hope this helps you,

      wish you all the best.
