Response to "navigating cooper"
1.Nancy is the head of IVF nurses, she is great. If u have any question and can't reach a doctor ask for her.
2. In case of emergency call emergency line directed by their answering system, an RE will call u back in 5 min.
3. The front desk is ur next bet, Kim at front desk is an angle. Twice I missed a call from a nurse and she directed me to them. Once she saw I was freaking out and she directed me to Dr Choe.
4. Dr Choe and Dr check have different opinions on cases, even Thu I wrote big and bold that I want Dr check to make my decisions, I got order from different re each time, but that worked out well so far.
5. Be on top of ur case and save all
ur results EACH time on a spread sheet. If u want ur history, there is a $30 charge and they only mail it u if ur out of town. It takes up to a week.
5. I got a blank sheet with check's sig and I marked the order my self each time, instead of them faxing me order every single time.
6. U will need a lots of faxing, I got the fax system that u can send and recieve fax from ur email. U get a phone # and it directs to yr email, its $10 a month, u can find cheaper ones. If u have an office job like me, it saves u LOTS of time. U don't want ur coworkers to know ur getting a vaginal UTZ TOMORROW if they sent u fax and ur not next to the machine. To me this is a must, I believe there r some free fax to email out there that u can only send 2 or 4 fax per day.
7. Have ur monitoring place give u the result and then u give them to cooper. Cooper will not call u or follow up in ur results, unless its the last couple of days of IVF. IF YOUR not the messenger u will never know if they got ur results. Also by the time they give u the result it could be as late as 8 pm and I personally can't wait that long to get the result. I have no patience.
Please excuse any typos, typed from my cell phone!!!
