Can you trust your IVF doctor?

Trust is an integral part of a doctor patient relationship, and it helps to improve your chances of IVF success ! If you respect and trust your doctor , and he respects and trusts you, you will be able to work together to achieve your goal.
The trouble is that much of IVF medicine has become commercialized today .
It's hard for doctors to be able to create that trust, and patients are pretty much forced to do whatever they're told to do.
There isn't enough time for them to sit down and talk to the doctor, and they often feel short-changed and cheated when things don't go well.
This is why it's so important that IVF doctors learn to be open and transparent !
This is the best way of letting patients know that they are reliable and honest. By sharing information with patients and documenting it, they are signalling they are competent and caring.
This is why it's so important that patients ask the IVF doctor for photos of their embryos during the IVF cycle. This helps to keep everyone honest !
