The path to bringing a new generation into this world is often accompanied by joy, worry and everything in between. Our compassionate team of obstetricians and certified nurse midwives will be with you every step of the way, with care and support in fertility, prenatal and postpartum services.
For your convenience, Grand Traverse Women’s Clinic provides on-site ultrasound examinations with two highly trained and experienced sonographers.
Imagine if you were able to see your unborn child’s every detail; eyelashes, lips and even fingernails. The General Electric Voluson—a 3D ultrasound technology offered by Grand Traverse Women’s Clinic—brings these possibilities to life. As the first clinic to provide this technology in Northern Michigan, we are bringing patient care to a new level at GTWC.
The ultrasound machine works by taking a series of two-dimensional images on different planes, and then does a computer regeneration where the photos mesh together, giving the patient a three-dimensional image.
We now offer the latest innovative technology that lets us email images of your unborn child to you during your ultrasound exam eliminating the need for CD’s or recording the scan on personal devices. Provide us with your email at the end of the scan and images will be instantly sent to you by our technicians.
At Grand Traverse Women’s Clinic, we understand that while achieving pregnancy can be one of life’s greatest joys, for some couples, attempting pregnancy can be a frustrating. We provide many services to help you conceive. It is our goal to assist you with understanding your evaluation and treatment during this time.
Initial consultations will usually include a review of all applicable history and overview of further diagnostic testing and examinations. Appropriate labs and radiologic studies will be ordered. Based on results, follow-up appointments will be scheduled so that we may make detailed recommendations for further care. We try to limit testing to what has been proven useful in clinical applications.
A common issue is that insurance often does not pay for many tests and procedures related to fertility treatment. Therefore, we ask for payment at time of service. If your appointment falls on a weekend, we ask that you make payment prior to services. Please contact your insurance company, lab or pharmacy for your coverage information or anticipated charges. The following are cost estimates for some of the more common tests and treatments we provide in our office.
Follicle Study: $225 Office visit fee: $100-$135 Office services provided after hours: $150/visit
Clomid/Femara/Ovidrel: Cost varies by pharmacy. Ovidrel if given in office -$330
IUI with sperm washing: $525/cycle IUI with sperm bank specimen: $430/cycle
