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 cycle. The standard response is, ” The clinic did not give us any records – they keep these themselves”.
Some of 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. Medical 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 don’t ! As a 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. However, the 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 ! Please send me your medical details by filling in the form at www.drmalpani.com/free-second-opinion so that I can guide you !
