I see many
patients who have done an IVF cycle in other clinics , but have failed.
I ask them
for a copy of their medical records, as well as photos of their embryos, so I
can analyse what we can do to improve their chances of success for their next
standard response is, " The clinic did not give us any records they keep
them go back to their doctor and ask for photos of embryos, and the standard
response is - "Sorry, we don't provide embryo photos to our patients, because
it's not part of our medical protocol."
This is complete
rubbish, and just means the doctors is giving the patient a brush-off.
care all over the world is the same, and all good clinics standard good
practices. After all, doctors cannot pick and choose what they want to do, and
what they dont !
patient, you have paid for your medical treatment, and you need to be
assertive. You need to demand copies of your medical treatment records, as well
as photos of your embryos.
best time to do this is before you start your treatment cycle, because after
you've paid your fees, the doctor will give you all kinds of flimsy reasons for
not sharing the medical details with you, and there will be nothing you will be
able to do about this !
