What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Schoolcraft
“Let’s just say, thank goodness for second opinions as Dr. Schoolcraft disagreed with what we were previous told. He explained how his facility was different. He was genuine and upfront. After meeting with him, we felt as though we were finally in the right place with the right people. We pulled the trigger and proceeded with our last attempt at building a family. CCRM should have been our first facility. Everything was different and because of that second opinion, we received our first positive pregnancy test after 6 1/2 years of trying to conceive and are getting ready to start our second trimester. Best of all, we have another embryo to proceed forward with when the time is right. We will always be thankful and grateful for Dr. Schoolcraft, his top-notch lab, and all of his staff.”
“Dr. Schoolcraft is hands down the best fertility specialist in the country – possibly the world. He is super intelligent, research based, and his bedside manner is very caring and empathetic. I saw countless doctors over 6 years of infertility. None came close to him in any way. He has mad skills. I would recommend him without hesitation to anyone who wants to see their family grow. He even followed my care across the country through my first trimester. I only wish that I had found him sooner.”
“Dr. Schoolcraft is one of the best reproductive endocrinologists in the world. He started CCRM and built it into a fertility mecca. The lab and embryologists are also some of the best in the world and they have pioneered techniques that other clinics simply cannot do. The nurses at CCRM are also on the ball and very good at communicating. The geneticists are top notch. Basically this is a team of highly trained experts that are there to help you – and everyone’s journey is unique. The difference is noted from the minute you step through the doors. They see patients from all over the US and the World because they are the best! I flew from out of state to be seen, because my local IVF clinics could not help us get pregnant. Now we are pregnant with our miracle baby after 9 years of trying. If you want success stop wasting your money at other clinics, and go to CCRM and Dr. Schoolcraft. Thank you Dr. Schoolcraft for everything you do in the REI world.”
“After two failed attempts at another IVF clinic, we decided to go to CCRM and I’m so glad we did. There is a reason CCRM is the best in the nation. We were lucky that we live in Colorado but even if you are in another state it is well worth the trip. I highly recommend Dr. Schoolcraft and the entire CCRM team (especially his nurse Valerie, who was amazing!)”
“Excellent experience with Dr. Schoolcraft and his entire staff at CCRM/Lab. This clinic is a well oiled machine backed by decades of scientific data/research. After multiple IVF cycles of disappointment and being told our family’s only option was a donor egg secondary to my advanced maternal age > 42 – Dr. Schoolcraft was optimistic after reviewing our 1 day work up results that it would still be possible to have a healthy embryo without a donor egg. I am currently 12 weeks pregnant will a healthy baby girl (my egg) after one IVF cycle with Dr. Schoolcraft/CCRM Team. Forever Grateful to him and his strong team.”
“My experience with CCRM and Dr. Schoolcraft has been excellent. I have struggled with infertility for about five years. Finally, at age 41, I am now pregnant with twins. I traveled from Michigan to Colorado to see him, but it was worth it. I get better response time from his nursing staff than I do my own Dr.’s in Michigan. I highly recommend Dr. Schoolcraft. His office sets the bar for reproductive medicine.”
“Dr Schoolcraft and the entire staff at CCRM are smart, kind, data oriented, and dedicated to making your dream of having a family a reality. I went through multiple failed rounds at other clinics, and after a lot of research, I decided to fly in from NYC and TN to get treatment at CCRM as they had the reputation for being the best. And, it is true…. from day 1, my experience at CCRM was different. The treatment is rooted in decades of research, the embryology department is unparalleled (this matters a lot for those who don’t know), and the results are remarkable. I was a tough case. I went through 5 rounds of IVF at age 41 (3 banking cycles with CCRM), And, at CRRM I ended up with over 20 embryos but only 2 were genetically normal. One is my 2.5 year old daughter and the 2nd one is a baby boy due in early May 2020. After being told I was a lost cause, I am now months away from having two beautiful kids! And this is 100% due to the staff at CCRM. I am so grateful!”
“Our experience with Dr. Schoolcraft and everyone at CCRM was nothing short of amazing from start to finish. We stuggled for years with infertility at other clinics. We always felt frustrated in someway or another with care at those clinics. Everything at CCRM with Dr.Schoolcraft is design for patient care, we felt more than just a number at CCRM”
“Dr. Schoolcraft and his tremendous team made our dreams come true. After 4 failed attempts at a terrible clinic in Utah, we saw the light and started w/ CCRM. It wasn’t easy, to say the least, but after my miscarriage, he paved the way for us to welcome our very own, beautiful girl into the world via gestational carrier. I cannot day enough good things about The Wizard, as I call him, and his amazing, caring and competent staff. Merci bien!”
“Dr Schoolcraft came highly recommended to me by some family members in CO, I live in Fl and had already exhausted our local resources with no success. When we were leaving our first visit to CCRM my husband and I both were just so confident in the the clinic and their Dr’s and the whole thing. I am writing this from my couch where I’m currently 26 weeks pregnant with our baby girl from a successful 1st round of IVF with Schoolcraft and CCRM. Can’t recommend them enough. My nurse Morgan was amazing as were ALL the other staff members. Amazing experience and 1000% worth the trips and the money.”
“Amazing experience, everyone we dealt with was super knowledgable and helpful.You truly feel like you’re getting your best medical care there and I’m so thankful we chose to go here. We are from FL and travelled back and forth several times and it was 1000% worth it. The Dr’s and the whole team are so knowledgable and want you to succeed. They want you to get the baby that we all want so badly. Can’t recommend them enough!”
“There is no place better! The doctors and staff could not be more knowledgable, kind, understanding, patient, and wonderful. After having failed results elsewhere, CCRM, Dr. Schoolcraft and his team have just gone above and beyond to do whatever it takes to get me the family I’ve always dreamed of having. We had such an incredible experience the first time we already went back for a successful 2nd transfer! We could not say enough good things about CCRM!”
“My husband’s friend recommended Dr. Schoolcraft in 2019. Since we already had the first appointment with a doctor in Chicago at that point, I was a bit hesitant of the idea of having a treatment in CO. I thought it would make our journey more difficult and stressful due to the distance. However, this was the best choice we ever made!! Having talked with other doctor already gave us some idea about the journey and it also gave us the base to compare. When we talked to Dr. Schoolcraft on the phone for the first time, we learned that his confidence was backed up with their lab technologies (science) which was lacked with the doctor in Chicago. The clinic is highly organized and has very friendly atmosphere and his staffs are always available and responsive. I have nothing negative to say about him, his team and clinic. Highly recommended for anyone and specially for advanced age women who have no time to waste!”
