I called the Very Large Clinic and left 2 messages and finally reached a human on the 3rd attempt.
Here is what I found out:
1. Large Clinic has raised its prices and is in fact more exspensive than my current RE (small clinic). $27,000 for one DE cycle !!! Most woman do shared cycles which lowers the cost. hmmmmm....
2. Large Clinic currently has 30 currently available donors - but not all are available for single recipient cycle (donors who are known to produce 20 follicles have been designated for shared use - up to 3 recipients in one cycle!!!)
3. Large Clinic does 400 donor egg procedures annually - and there are 60 women cycling as we speak!!!!!
Needless to say, I do no think this is the right course of action for me. I want someone who is actually going to read my file and know who I am - with 60 women cycling at anyone time (just in the donor egg program - forget about IVF) how can 18 doctors possibly be able to keep it all straight?
Given the current options I am going to ride it out a little longer and see if my RE finds a donor for me. I would rather pay the extra money to a donor agency and bring my own donor to my RE and get the hand holding I need, instead of giving it to large clinic who will never be able to remember my name.
That's the current thinking - thanks to everyone who posted a comment, it all helps me to process through this stuff.
