The nursing staff at his office [IVF1] is amazing. They explained everything to me step by step, made sure I was always updated on the adjustment for medication and even hugged me on our last office visit. I have high standards for nursing because of them.... I believe the clinic's strengths are the online portal. They update all the meds, procedures, etc in there. You can review it anytime day or night as well as review documents directly online.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I believe Randy Morris treated his patients as a human, because he took the time to make sure we understood the whole process from start to finish. He explained each transfer, and his staff made sure we were always updated.

How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr. Morris was extremely kind, and explained our steps as we were both carriers for a genetic disorder. It clearly took extra screening, and steps on our part to confirm we had healthy children to transfer. He made sure we understood the steps, our options, and was very kind in the discussions.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
I believe Randy Morris would do anything he can to help you achieve a pregnancy. He is very knowledgeable and will do what is best for you.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I came to Dr. Morris late, I had already tried Clomid unsuccessfully with an ob/gyn. During routine screening, we found out we were carriers and decided to do IVF with PGD screening to confirm they were not affected. He did a normal protocol as I also have PCOS.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I had costs associated with medication (directly from the pharmacy), we had costs associated with egg retrieval, as well as costs associated with testing for a genetic disorder.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
He was in with me during hsg and was kind, asking how I feel about everything. He was there in everything we did, he was able to ask me if I was okay. Emotions are a real human trait.

How was your experience with Randy Morris?
He is so kind, and always has time. Answers emails directly and cares about his patients. He is always wanting to go above and beyond and he was there doing the hsg, doing the IUI, chatting through the whole thing. He made me feel like a person instead of just a number or someone there to get him more money. He wanted my IUI to work.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Relax. You're already going through something so overwhelming, let his expertise guide you through what you're about to do. Also - ask questions! Be your own advocate. When I thought something was off, he took the time to help me answer those questions.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I don't remember specifics, but we did use all the normal protocols for IUI. We had same day sperm retrieval and ultrasounds each time.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
Nothing was covered under insurance for me, so everything was very expensive. Each ultrasound was $400 and everything else was mixed in.

All of the nurses [at IVF1] are great at answering questions and providing rationales. They also return phone calls in a timely manner. They've all been very kind and empathetic...They are clean and organized. Each staff member treats you like a person and not just another number, even on busy days. Their biggest downfall, is they get very backed up on the weekends (especially during ivf cycles) because appointments often end up being double booked. If it's just blood work it's not bad - you're in and out. The ultrasounds are more time consuming and contribute to the back ups. Even though it's frustrating, I'm glad the techs are taking their time and thouroughly examining our follicles.

How was your experience with Randy Morris?
At first, I wasn't sure what I thought of Dr. Morris, but I also don't know if that was because of the initial shock of sitting in an fertility clinic. However, by the 2nd time meeting with Dr. Morris I really liked him. He explains procedures to you thourougly. If it's a procedure you're awake for, he literally walks you through step by step of everything he's doing (I'm putting on gloves right now, etc). It might seem a little silly at times, but it does wonders for easing anxiety. Dr. Morris has wheeled my gurney to the OR, he's helped the nurses clean me up after procedures (both of which are extremely rare for doctors to do!!). He's kind, compassionate and has a little bit of a humorous side to him.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Ask questions and be prepared for truthful answers. Dr. Morris stays up to date on the latest trends and procedures in the infertility world. He won't laugh at you or make you feel dumb if you ask about eating particular foods or doing acupuncture, etc. He will tell you what the research says about a particular trend.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
He Started out with putting my husband on Letrozole to see if his sperm counts would increase and we would get pregnant on our own. We then moved onto Clomid with IUIs, then injections (follistim and crinone) with IUIs. After a break, we moved on to IVF (birth control, gonal-f, low dose hcg, ganirelex, progesterone in oil, low dose baby aspirin, lupron, endometrin, estrace). My husband had several semen analysis done. I had Amh, hysterosocopy, hsg, laparoscopy (stage 2 endometriosis). Sorry, I can't remember other testing off hand.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
So far, since May of 2016, we've paid over $6,400 for copays, blood work, ultrasounds, testing, meds, etc. I don't recall exact costs of items.

The ultrasound tech was a little rushed and quick during her ultrasounds, but she did her job...At one point, during my hsg, I became so faint and weak.

Describe your experience with IVF1.
The clinic is very organized. At the time of my treatment the surgical procedures were considered out-of-network which was the only negative for me since Dr. Morris himself was considered in network. I have heard this may have changed in the past year. In any case, yes it is a big clinic but I felt from the receptionist, to the techs taking my blood each time (both were extremely nice and caring), to the nurses this clinic made you feel like you weren't one in a thousand. The ultrasound tech was a little rushed and quick during her ultrasounds, but she did her job and when we did get pregnant she took her time and let us see the baby for a good amount of time.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Morris explained what was going on and the process of treatment very thoroughly, he did not rush me out of our consultation. He took his time and met with me as much as I needed, and even answered our call after hours himself when we had questions about medication.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
At one point, during my hsg, I became so faint and weak. The nurses were very caring and even called my mom to come pick me up since I was so lightheaded. They were helpful with all my questions and demonstrated clearly how to administer the shots.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
I came to Dr. Morris after experiencing a miscarriage and being told my eggs were poor quality. Morris immediately looked over the results from our miscarriage before our meeting and provided insight that our other doctor overlooked. He was willing to test my already-frozen embryos and adjusted medication during my FET resulting in me not having to cancel the cycle. I got pregnant and was able to have a successful pregnancy.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Like with any clinic, you'll still need to be your own advocate. Make sure you ask questions because Dr Morris will answer!
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I came to Dr Morris after having a miscarriage and d&c, and 16 weeks later I still hadn't gotten my period. His nurse got me on birth control initiated my period, and then Dr. Morris recommended a hysteroscopy to clear out any potential scar issues and damage done by the d&c. He was also willing to do pgs testing on my already frozen embryos during that time. Then, as soon as I go my period again, we were able to start the process preparing for an FET. After a week my uterine lining levels had stalled, so he suggested I start taking estrogen pills vaginally. My lining went up to a 7.0 mm, and he was confident that was enough for the embryos to take. He also suggested we transfer both our embryos since they were considered 6 day embryos and did not have the development normally seen. I got pregnant with one baby who is now 11 months old.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I don't remember all specifics. PGS testing was significantly cheaper - we tested 3 embryos for I think it was around $3000. Dr. Morris was 80% covered under our insurance and the surgical procedures were 60% covered since they were considered out of network. Surgical procedures I experienced at IVF1 were the hsg test, hysteroscopy, and FET transfer.

Describe your experience with IVF1.
I can’t think of any weaknesses off the top of my head. The staff and nurses are really what I enjoy about the clinic. Everyone is helpful and kind. When you have a tough day they are always compassionate and ask how you are doing and if a scheduling conflict comes up they work with you to get you in.

I have all good things to say. They are all consistently kind, compassionate and patient. Any question I have had they have been very responsive. Yesterday I callled because I had concerns with next steps and scheduling a trip, the nurses were very helpful with addressing my questions.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
I overall like him and really like his practice. I got the sense that he really knows his stuff. He is not super warm but I didn’t find him completely cold just a bit straightforward, which is fine. He provided a couple of treatment options for our sitiutatiin but I did find I had to press to him to get his opinion on which was the best mothod.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
If using insurance double check that both the clinic and surgery center are in network. We had an issue that the surgery center was not in network so that was annoying to deal with.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
In 2015 we did IUI with gonaditropins (gonal-f) with and HCG trigger (I think). I can’t remeber for sure but I think the dosing went up a little bit for the second cycle. I had 2 IUIs the second resulted in a live birth. I believe I had a 6 follicles the second time which was a bit more than planned but ultimately was fine as it resulted in a one live birth. For the current treatment cycle we decided on IVF. For stim cycle I took follostim, low dose Hcg, baby aspirin, ganirelix, the trigger shot was a bolus of low dose hcg and Lupron . 11 eggs retrieved and 10 fertilized successfully using ICSI. Expecting to find out how many made it to day 5 blastocyst today.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
This is hard to answer for the current IVF treatment I have a New insurance policy. For meds, office visits (monitoring), procedures, genetic testing and crypreservation we’ve spent around $10,000 so far plus insurance premiums. I don’t remeber what we spent for our IUIs but it wasn’t much becUse we had better insurance.

That was a weakness. I was behind in paying them because I wasn't aware of the 2 separate & thought I had paid up in full. Other than that, I have no negative feedback
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
All staff knew who I was and that I was using donated embryos. They were encouraging and supportive. Along the way during our 3 attempts, not one person neglected to ask how I was doing. Very sincere group of people.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
As stated previously, I wasn't assigned one primary nurse. I did however see the same staff on most visits. The majority were well versed in my care without having to "look me up." All staff was courteous and knowledgeable.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
I didn't see him often. He performed testing and my embryo transfers. I had no real need to see him face to face for ultrasounds or bloodwork, so this was appropriate. I very much liked his attention to detail. He was willing to tweak my med dosages after every blood draw (& did several times!) I strongly feel it was because his willingness to keep such a close eye that my last cycle was successful!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
He is results oriented. Direct, but not in a rude way. He's accessible to his patients. I once called on a Sunday night, 11:45pm, because of bleeding. He had released me from his care the week prior to my OB. Yet he still called me and addressed my concerns warmly. Highly recommend him!
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I did 3 frozen donated embryo transfers with him. I sadly no longer have access to the specific levels within their portal, but my successful transfer my lining was 8 (in compared to 10 and a 12 prior attempts.) And my progesterone and estrogen levels were at the lowest place within normal than in previous cycles. He did my hcg draw at 8dp5dt. My level was 7.20. My first positive draw! No one reached negatively, in fact they told me each step was like jumping over a hurdle and we had to see how the next step went. 10dp-23, 13dp-68. I had a healthy singleton pregnancy and delivered a beautiful baby girl.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
The total without insurance was $5400 in 2014 plus medications. I recently called in prep for another cycle, cost rose to $8900 plus meds

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
They seemed to know me when I called.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I seem to get different people all the time, but at least all of them are native English speakers (I'm not prejudiced, just had a communication issue with a very nice Japanese nurse at my last clinic!) and seem to have access to all the notes from prior interactions. You can get the nurses' station by pressing 8 in the phone menu and you almost always get a real human nurse. If not, they do return voicemails quickly.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
I am about to start my first IVF egg retrieval with them. I actually met with Kim Goehl, the nurse practitioner that is basically almost equal in status to Dr. Morris. She is the FIRST ONE in this journey that has not only known that pregnancy/birth control/hormones interfere with TSH levels and doses of Synthroid, but was like "that's totally common knowledge." I have had to explain it to every other person including so-called reproductive endocrinologists. Anyway, they seem super knowledgeable and worth the extra drive as compared to my first IVF clinic. I will say that the hysteroscopy was extremely uncomfortable and I also had one very uncomfortable ultrasound, but I'm here for the results! And their stats are better than other doctors and better than the national average.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Don't take the prescription prenatal vitamins-- the copay was $50 for one month!!
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
They are going to use Gonal-F/Follistim, which I have used before, but also a low dose aspirin and a low dose HCG, which I have never tried before.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I had to pay $2400 up front for PGS testing (they adjust the amount later based on the number of embryos you have to test.)

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I do not feel as if the doctor was familiar with his patients, but the nursing staff was amazing and kept up well with patients. Dr. Morris is the only doctor at the facility so I feel he is flooded with patients that he may not be able to keep up with and for that reason I felt like a number.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
The nursing staff is amazing! Always organized, return phone calls promptly, and very compassionate. This is one of the things that I love about his office!
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr. Morris is very straight to the point and seems highly educated in the field. He doesn't have a huge sense of humor or act like your best friend, he is your doctor and keeps everything very professional. Any questions I have ever had, he did his best to explain it to me and help me better understand the process, even though it can be hard for someone who is new to infertility to understand, I got the gist most of the time. During procedures, he makes sure your comfortable and shows more compassion than he will sitting in his office chair. Overall, I think he is a good doctor and I am trusting him with this process.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Ask questions and don't stop until you completely understand. It is your body and you deserve to understand everything happening to it.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
I am a 32 year old female with a high AMH of 4.6. I did stem shots for 11 days as follows... days 1-4 Follistim 200IU days 5-7 Follistim 200IU, Ganirelix, and low dose HCG days 8-10 Follistim 75IU, Ganirelix, and low dose HCG day 11 Lupron and HCG triggers From this cycle I retrieved only 3 eggs, all of which fertilized, and only one made it to a 6 day blastocyst and is now frozen. Next cycle we will be upping the Follistim considering I didn't have the best reaction to the dose this cycle.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I have not been fully billed yet and have made small payments as I go along so I cannot give a total that I have paid, but a cycle typically costs around $15,000. Also, their office offers a really fair PGS testing price of $2,400 for 4 embryos to be tested, while most other clinics are from $4,000-$6,000.

Great nurses [at IVF1]. Very responsive via the portal and phone calls. One of the ultrasound techs is a little abrasive/unfriendly, but literally everyone else has been fantastic....The clinic is very updated and not too busy. I've had to wait a maximum of 10 minutes for a monitoring appointment. One of their biggest selling points is how their well-functioning, prompt clinic. With minimal wait-times and friendly, knowledgeable clinical staff -- the clinic is easily one of the best in the Chicago area..

Describe your experience with IVF1.
The clinic is very updated and not too busy. I've had to wait a maximum of 10 minutes for a monitoring appointment. One of their biggest selling points is how their well-functioning, prompt clinic. With minimal wait-times and friendly, knowledgeable clinical staff -- the clinic is easily one of the best in the Chicago area.. Dr Morris has also invested a lot in the lab, so I have faith that my embryos are getting the best chance of growing.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Morris is responsive and answers questions. I was able to get consults and regroups with him whenever I requested them. He also personally responded to my questions via the portal.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Great nurses. Very responsive via the portal and phone calls. One of the ultrasound techs is a little abrasive/unfriendly, but literally everyone else has been fantastic.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr. Morris only prescribes to protocols that have valid clinical studies to back them up. His protocols are pretty simple -- he doesn't use any experimental drugs. Saizen is often used for women with DOR, but he did not recommend that for me bc he believes that higher doses of Follistim work just as well. He doesn't promote supplements like CoQ10 bc they are not regulated. He's pretty by the book. I've found him to have a great bedside manner. He's good about explaining the procedures and protocols. He's also responsive on the patient portal. I have not done a transfer with him yet, but retrievals have gone fairly well. Overall, great experience so far.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Reach out to him if you have questions.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
DOR Follistim 600 IU with low dose HCG, Ganirelix and Lupron. Primed with BCP.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
$1800 PGS testing. We had met our deductible so everything else was covered.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
His staff and himself are so personal, caring and knowledge. They were responsive regardless of my questions and we're always supportive.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Amazing!! Each and every one I worked with was fantastic, passionate about my success, and working to help support me.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr. Morris is very analytical, which appeals to my business nature. He's done his research and knows what he's talking about. He's responded to any communication I've sent to him directly and is a man of science. I'm sure it's hard to deal in science for such an emotional journey, but he navigates it well.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
He didn't change protocol on procedures, which is frustrating in an emotional and hormonal lyrics induced state. Try to have patience, as he knows what he's doing.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
My tests showed no issues, just unexplained infertility. We used Follistim, Ganirellex, an HCG trigger, Crinone and progesterone in oil during my retrieval and transfer.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I don't remember the facility cost. Just overall costs including meds and donor sperm. All in, each IUI was about $3,500 and the retrieval and transfer is about $12- $13k.

I can't leave a terrible review because I walked away with a baby but I will never forget the way the staff [IVF1 - Naperville] made me feel. I recommend they take a course in how to speak to people.... Scheduling was relatively easy. The lack of communication between the main office and the office I went to for monitoring needs improvement.

Describe your experience with IVF1.
I can't leave a terrible review because I walked away with a baby but I will never forget the way the staff made me feel. I recommend they take a course in how to speak to people. I honestly felt at one point that my doctor didn't like me and that he might sabotage my transfer because of personal feelings.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
My questions went unanswered, I was rushed in and out, staff showed no emotion
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
They were rude and short, showed no compassion and were emotionless. They made me feel unwelcomed and almost as if I was disliked
What specific things went wrong at this clinic?
  • Lost paperwork
  • Failed to call with results
  • Failed to order appropriate test
  • Failed to send your chart to another clinic
  • Lost results
  • Provided conflicting information
  • Failed to convey critical information
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
I felt like he was pushy and had no emotion. He rushed through the plan and I left without a true understanding about what I was about to go through. When i declined pgs testing he was very rude to my husband and I and i left the office crying.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Don't leave until every last question is answered and make sure to write every single thing down because if you have questions they will blow you off or give you an attitude if you have to call
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments.
Scheduling was relatively easy. The lack of communication between the main office and the office I went to for monitoring needs improvement. There were many times I went in for monitoring and they couldn't find me on the schedule because I was put in the system at a different location
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
The costs are outrageous. I doubt know an exact number but we paid well over $12,000 when it was all said and done, with insurance.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr. Morris and his staff really took time with you at every single appointment. He never ran late. He took ample time to explain things and to answer our questions.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
All of the nurses were wonderful. Very compassionate. They always took time to answer all of our questions.
How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr. Morris is a very compassionate doctor who cares about his patients. Unfortunately he did not recognize several uterine adhesions which made all of our IVF attempts unsuccessful. He was not willing to pursue additional testing to see why I was unable to get pregnant. We then decided to get a second opinion.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Advocate for tests, procedures if you feel it necessary.
Describe the protocols Randy Morris used in your cycles and their degree of success.
Dr. Morris completed diagnostic tests which showed POF. Dr. Morris recommended IVF with donor eggs. We went through 1 IVF and 4 FETs with embryos created with our donor eggs. None were successful. He then completed a HSG which showed a fibroid but stated it did not warrant surgical attention. He recommended gestational surrogacy. He was unable to provide answers as to why our cycles had failed. We then sought a second opinion.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
Everything was covered by insurance.

The clinic [IVF1] is big and sees many many patients so it’s hard not to feel like a number. The staff is very friendly though and takes the time to make you feel more human. The actual facility is beautiful and state of the art...The nurses are all very nice. Many times you just get messages from them through the patient portal, but when you talk to them over the phone, they are almost always caring and compassionate. When I had questions about my treatment plan, the nurse I talked to took the time to answer my questions and give her honest opinion about her thoughts on our approach. She even told me what she would do if she were in my position, which is really helpful during a time filled with so much uncertainty.

During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
The clinic treats so many patients that it’s hard not to feel like a number. When speaking with an actual nurse, though, I felt like a human.

How was your experience with Randy Morris?
Dr Morris is pretty blunt and to the point, but I would rather have an honest doctor than have unrealistic expectations for my treatment and outcome. I saw Dr Morris for consultations (or we saw the nurse practitioner who works with him) and for surgical procedures. The actual IUI was completed by a nurse.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Randy Morris?
Don’t expect to see the Dr very much and ask questions when you have them.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
They said the cost for iui was $1900 with all testing and ultrasounds.

Dr. Morison was very attentive to our concerns and preferences. He runs a very high quality lab with small surgical center on site. I didn't see him while we were doing the clomid and IUI cycles. Related to this, my treatment didn't always seem very personalized. The staff is great--very kind and helpful. We would recommend Dr. Morris. We like him and appreciate that he keeps his treatment very up to date with the latest fertility research. We have a one year old now and will probably return for help getting pregnant again.

Describe the costs associated with your care under Randy Morris.
I think IVF with retrieval and transfer would have been $16k without insurance.
