Describe your experience with Indiana Fertility Institute.
Its a small clinic so it is easy to know and communicate with everyone. They responded really well via email when I wanted to communicate this way. They had great charts and instructions for my IVF cycle. They really listened to my wants and needs and adjusted accordingly (ie I could use the pharmacy I wanted and they knew where to find the cheapest meds).
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My OB treated my condition poorly. When I went to Dr Jarrett I had many concerns about my condition and he addressed them all during our initial visit. He was able to pinpoint all of my concerns just from my medical record. He was prepared during my initial visit and always offered me options so I could choose the course of my therapy. He called me personally after hours to discuss further options so I didn't have to come into the office all the time. After my transfer he was very gentle, grabbed my hand, and wished me the best. He is blunt, but truly caring.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Since it is a small clinic, I rotated through the nursing staff. I love most EVERYBODY that worked at this office. There was one younger nurse whom I didn't have a lot of confidence in but she only did ultrasounds in the middle of my cycle so I had very experienced nurses for all other ultrasounds and check-ups
How was your experience with John Jarrett?
He is very blunt but will discuss all treatments options with you. He pursues aggressive treatments. His costs are reasonable. I believe he truly cares about his patients. As a health care provider, I can see he stays on top of his research and is very informed.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Jarrett?
He is blunt, but I believe he is one of the top docs in Indiana. I liked his small office and he preformed all IVF procedures so you didn't have to worry about getting a doctor for your treatments that didn't know you and your infertility course.
Describe the protocols John Jarrett used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Antagonist protocol. Started with birth control pills. Then follistim and menopur. Added Ganirelix during second half of cycle. Lurpon and low dose HCG were used for ovulation. On my last ultrasound I had many follicles. During retrieval I had 10 follicles, but only 3 eggs were retrieved. Doctor suspected I ovulated early. All 3 eggs were ICIS due to attrition rate and all 3 turned into 5 day blasts.

Each phone call I received from them felt like I was talking to a friend who was caring for me.... The clinic is very nice and clean. They are efficient - they get you in and out quickly. You do have to pay out of pocket for ultrasounds (about $300), but they do everything they can to bill any little thing they can to insurance to help save on costs for you. They understand the financial burden of infertility and do their best to minimize that.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Jarrett takes time to sit with us and explain what he thinks is going on. He always asks how I am doing and has concern over my mental and emotional well-being as well.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff here is absolutely phenomenal. They are caring and answer any questions you have, and help you through every step of the way. Each phone call I received from them felt like I was talking to a friend who was caring for me.
How was your experience with John Jarrett?
Dr. Jarrett came highly recommended to me. He is pretty blunt about what's going on and what he thinks the course of action should be. I really respect that he doesn't do repeated rounds of Letrozole or IUIs after the first couple fail, because he understands that the chances go down and you're just spending useless money. He takes time to answer questions and explain everything going on. He is a caring person who's goal is to achieve pregnancy.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Jarrett?
Dr. Jarrett has interesting mannerisms - first impression may be a little off-putting, but as the appointment progresses, you will see how knowledgeable and experienced he really is and you'll feel very comfortable with the plan he presents to you.
Describe the protocols John Jarrett used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We started with 2 rounds of Letrozole/Ovidrill/intercourse/progesterone. Both produced great eggs but no pregnancy. After these two rounds, I had a laparoscopy to see if I had endometriosis,. I did not, so he told me to try for 3 months naturally to see if I would get pregnant. I did not, so we met with him again and he said that in the laparoscopy he noticed my fallopian tubes were very long, but didn't think that was the problem until after we didn't get pregnant naturally after the surgery. Now he thinks that may be the issue so we are trying an IUI this month.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Jarrett.
Ultrasounds are around $300. They try to bill as much as they can to insurance, so if it's not marked as in infertility consultation, insurance covers it. For infertility consultation, appointments are about $120.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He cares. TRULY cares about giving you what we all pray for every single day, and that's a baby. He's so intelligent and you can see in his eyes that he will do whatever it takes to get you to that end goal of becoming a parent.

How was your experience with John Jarrett?
I've never felt more comfortable with a doctor. I think he actually understand how devastating this process is for people going through it. He is always trying to give you options and explain what he feels is going to give us the end result. I'm so happy that I switched over to his clinic. He's simply wonderful.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Jarrett?
Trust him. He's incredibly intelligent.
Describe the protocols John Jarrett used in your cycles and their degree of success.
He immediately told me to loose weight and put me on metformin for PCOS. He allowed us to try clomid for two months, and when it didn't work, he dug deeper into why this wasn't working after two natural pregnancies earlier in the year. One resulted in an ectopic and an early miscarriage.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Jarrett.
We haven't done a whole lot financially yet, so I can't answer this yet. We had spent a lot of money at the other doctor before we switched.

Janet is amazing and compassionate. My nurse at retrieval was wonderful.
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Provided conflicting information
How was your experience with John Jarrett?
Dr. Jarrett oversimplified my situation and it has results in years of heartache and financial strain. During my initial consultation, I told him that my mother had went through menopause at 32. My labs showed that I had low AMH, especially for my age. He was confident that IVF would be successful and because of his confidence, we dove right in. Early on in my cycle, a dominant follicle appeared. My nurse kept telling me to prepare for him to cancel the cycle. To my surprise, he didn't and we went forward with the retrieval. The dominant follicle turned into a cyst and was over an inch wide. We only got 5 eggs and I felt severe discomfort from the cyst. Our cycle failed and Dr. Jarrett told me I was a "poor responder". He said that my mother's history was most likely explained my diminishing ovarian reserve. He recommended a "throw the kitchen sink" at me protocol for round 2. I decided to seek a 2nd opinion and gave the new RE the same medical history that was given to Dr. Jarrett. My new RE quickly suggesting genetic screening on the suspicion that I might be a Fragile X Carrier, due to my mother's premature menopause. I did the screening and $300 dollars later found out that I am a premutation carrier and that my diminishing ovarian reserve is tied to the Fragile X genetic disorder. Being a Fragile x Carrier also give me a 1 in 2 chance of passing it onto my child at a full mutation. Unfortunately, a full mutation of Fragile X most likely results in total mental retardation, Autism, physical deformities, etc. If Dr. Jarrett would have taken my medical history and applied his expertise, I could've been saved the heartbreak of a failed IVF and the $16,000 it costs for the procedure. Instead, he simplified my case and appeared annoyed with my many questions.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Jarrett?
Do not let his reputation of great success keep you from questioning his approach. If you feel something isn't right or your voice isn't being heard, speak up. He tends to overlook the validity of certain testing, testing that is widely recommended amongst his peers. Do your research and find out what tests successful clinics across the country require for treatment.

Describe your experience with Indiana Fertility Institute.
It is a wonderful clinic with lots of space. There are rooms to discuss to sign papers in and then also rooms for ultrasounds/examinations. I was able to just go upstairs to blood work and retrieval, and it was very smooth and easy. I was also able to do my laparoscopic procedure just next door to the institute at a surgery center.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The nurses and staff spoke to me by name and had smiles on their faces. They spoke warmly and with kindness and were there to answer any silly question I had/have. There is always the time here and there where you can feel like a number just because of the nature of being a fertility institute, they go through what you're going through with hundreds of patients. I felt very much like a human here though.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff here is wonderful. I/We always feel loved and supported at every appointment. They answer any questions I/we have an make sure we are comfortable as possible with what is going on in the cycle.
How was your experience with John Jarrett?
He was sure to speak to us with complete honesty and give us all the information. He did not beat around the bush or leave anything out. We appreciated this very much. He called me when necessary even if it was a weekend and didn't leave me waiting. I wish I could have seen him in person more often.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of John Jarrett?
The whole process is a roller coaster, so make sure you have people around you that can support you. The doctor and staff will do what they can, but they cannot be that person for every single patient they have.
Describe the protocols John Jarrett used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We began with metformin and testing, but metformin did not work for me and made me sick even with a strict diet. I was taken off of that and went through a laparoscopic procedure to remove some endometriosis and check everything else out. We were given the option of seeing a male fertility specialist as well but with not much of a push because there was a low likelihood of it helping. We were told IVF would really be our only option. Once hormone injections began, I had to up my doses because of lack of stimulation. We retrieved after 15 days of STIMS and ended up with 2 embryos that had to be frozen due to my high estradiol levels. We are waiting now for FET.
Describe the costs associated with your care under John Jarrett.
Our total cost after FET will be about $22,000.

This clinic is professional, organized and staffed by excellent individuals who seem to genuinely care about your family and the success of your treatments. Dr. Jarrett is a very accomplished provider, but I found that Dr. Provost was actually the doctor who was the best fit for me and my situation. The two work hand-in-hand, though, so if your primary isn't available and a need arises, the other will step in and handle your care in the interim. The one area where the clinic could improve is in billing. Receiving invoices takes an extremely long time and the billing department isn't always responsive to inquiries about account balances. The clinic laboratory, on the other hand, is very efficient about billing.

Dr. Provost is honest and manages expectations in a kind way. She is thorough, thoughtful, and patient when answering questions. She spoke to me like I was intelligent and could understand the science. She also held my hand prior to procedures and treated me with compassion. She made me feel like I was her only patient.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff at Indiana Fertility Institute are phenomenal. My primary interactions were with Sarah, Kate and Janet. All three offered compassionate care. They went above and beyond in calming my fears with a subsequent pregnancy following miscarriage. They're organized, responsive and have gone above and beyond in my care.
How was your experience with Meredith Provost?
My experience with Dr. Provost has been better than I could have imagined. Her attentive care, attention to detail, honesty and compassion are top notch. I would return to her in a heartbeat if we were planning to seek future treatment.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meredith Provost?
Don't be afraid to ask questions. Dr. Provost patiently and carefully answered all of my questions.
Describe the protocols Meredith Provost used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My retrieval protocol and my first frozen transfer were handled by my previous physician. I switched to Dr. Provost after suffering a miscarriage. Dr. Provost handled my D&C, then took over my care for my second frozen transfer. Medications used for that FET were Estradiol patches, PIO, Lovenox (a blood thinner to prevent clotting that could lead to miscarriage), and progesterone prometrium.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The nurses could never find my ovaries on the ultrasound and Dr. Provost would come in immediately to help out. To the point where eventually they would just skip the nurses and have her do it from the get go. I was super scared for my retrieval and provost just held my hand while the anesthesiologist put me under. She has always been straight to the point but in a kind and calm manner.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
I love Kate and Sarah they were super helpful and very attentive. Janet and I did not mesh well. She is a little too religious for my comfort level and didn't answer my questions directly.
How was your experience with Meredith Provost?
She was kind and patient with my husband and I throughout the whole process. She managed my expectations but never lost hope. She held my hand when I was scared and gave me hugs when I needed them. I live far away and often brought people with me to the appointments and she never once had any issue with it. She is nice and brilliant and caring and I would recommend her to anyone who was seeking.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Meredith Provost?
Be clear about your body. When things went wrong I had to suggest solutions and they were always considered.
Describe the protocols Meredith Provost used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We did IVF with ICSI because of male infertility. Not sure how to spell any of the medications.... Retrieval: Lopron, menupor, Ganarelix, HCG trigger shot. 13 eggs retrieved 10 fertilized, 7 made it to day 5, 4 normal PGS tested embryos. Transfer: Estrace, PIO, HCG trigger and progesterone suppositories. I am currently 5 Weeks and 4 days pregnant with my first ultrasound on Monday.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Meredith Provost.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
We always felt rushed.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I saw a different nurse each visit during my IVF cycle, some of whom were less competent at scanning my difficult ovaries.
How was your experience with John Jarrett?
Dr. Jarrett performed an exploratory surgery, one cancelled IUI cycle, and one round of IVF. He was kind and compassionate throughout each procedure. However, because I was a commuting patient, it was difficult to have a truly personal experience as meetings were replaced with phone consults. My IVF stimulating protocol was described by my new current RE as "old school." At my IVF egg retrieval, Dr. Jarrett was not able to retrieve from one ovary due to a visual blockage by my bowel. In hindsight, and now after seeing another doctor, a simple bowel prep could have dramatically changed the outcome of the procedure. Overall Dr. Jarrett is a good doctor, and likely the best in the Indianapolis area. After my failed IVF with him, I needed a second opinion and a fresh start with an RE with a different point of view.

How was your experience with John Jarrett?
He is a great doctor. He probably is best suited for those that live locally. Also, If your only goal is pregnancy he is your guy. I have PCOS, it effects fertility but it is also a life long challenge. He never addressed my PCOS effectively. PCOS is a leading cause of infertility in females. I suffer from secondary infertility and understood it required a life style revamping. I was disappointed in his approach controllong it over the lifespan. His nurses we not helpful.

We did 2 IUI's and he [Dr Jarrett at American Health Network] continuously refused cycle day 3 testing saying it wasn't needed. When my IUI's were unsuccessful and I demanded testing, my DOR was diagnosed and he would no longer treat me. His staff and Dr. Jarrett were extremely unkind and showed no empathy for the devastating news they were delivering. This doctor has a god complex. He's egotistical, rude and shows zero empathy for his patients. He only looks out for his best interests and the numbers and statistics being the best they can be. My diagnosis would not achieve good success rates. Therefore I was nothing to him.

Very informative, didn't beat around the bush and sugar coat anything when telling us our only option might be IVF....He had use do three rounds of Femara with an ovidrel trigger shot with ultrasounds to determine follicle size...Not a huge cost, because we never got any farther than a few rounds of Femara. Less than a grand....Didn't really have any weaknesses. Very compassionate staff and easily communicated with.
