3 Major Reasons Couples Are Traveling to Tucson to Get Pregnant

More and more women and couples are coming to Tucson in the hopes of getting pregnant. While Tucson’s weather might be part of the allure—especially in the winter—the real attraction is the Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

People from all over the world are coming to our Tucson fertility clinic to conceive. The majority of patients are from Tucson and Phoenix, but many come in from California, Texas, and northern Mexico. The farthest patient we’ve helped was a woman from Africa who started her cycle in Africa, flew out to Tucson for treatment, and got pregnant before she returned home.

Here are three reasons couples and single women from all over the world are heading to the Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility in Tucson to get pregnant:

1. Success Rates

Perhaps the most important aspect to consider when choosing an infertility clinic is its success rates. Dr. Timothy Gelety and the rest of the team at Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility have been helping women and couples get pregnant for more than 20 years. We’re at an almost 30 percent pregnancy rate for a single live birth, and in fact, we are amongst the top 10 fertility clinics in the country.

Our success, in large part, is due to the quality of our laboratory; we are careful and meticulous when it comes to the stimulation and retrieving of higher quality eggs from our patients. Many clinics have their own in vitro laboratories, but our Tucson center stands out because of the exceptional, consistent quality of our lab and lab staff.

The reason couples and single women still come to us in the end is because they visit other clinics, and after multiple treatment attempts, still do not get pregnant. With our proven pregnancy rates, we are able to help these people. Many of them get pregnant even with the first in vitro treatment, because we have the experience and know what we are doing.

2. Pricing

Our quality of service doesn’t come at an extravagant price. We understand that insurance hardly covers infertility, and most people we work with are paying out of pocket; we don’t want cost to be a factor in our patients fulfilling their dreams of becoming parents. So, we keep our prices very reasonable. Our IVF package, which is a set price that covers all appointments and tests, is half the price of competing in vitro clinics.

We know that conceiving a baby is already an emotional part of our patients’ lives. That’s why we don’t burden them with more financial costs when they’re not necessary. We want to give our patients hope of a pregnancy and eliminate the worry about being financially strapped.

3. Team

To us, the in vitro fertilization process is second nature. But we realize that the couples and women we work with have generally never been through it; it’s a completely new experience to them. We’re very adamant about supporting our patients throughout the entire process—from reviewing treatment options to looking at what their insurance will cover and helping them manage costs.

Because we have a single doctor working with every patient, we get to know every couple and woman we work with. Our patients become a part of our family, and we truly take a personal interest and responsibility in helping them start a family.

It’s clear that the Arizona Center for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility has made Tucson a destination for getting pregnant. Wherever in the world you may be, we would welcome the opportunity to walk with you on your journey to pregnancy. Visit us online or call us at 520-326-0001 to set up an appointment.
