Describe the protocols Jane Nani used in your cycles at Fertility Centers of Illinois and their degree of success.
Since I had already been with one fertility doctor for just one treatment, she was able to take that into consideration and proceed with a different direction. Dr. Nani never felt like we had to start from scratch at her office. We proceeded with the IUI. After the third non successful IUI treatment she so no further need to keep up with this course of treatment. She is always aware of the cost of these treatments and what insurance will cover so we moved on to Invetro. The one IVF treatment we used worked the first time. The office was very specific amount the amount of eggs that can be transferred.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Fertility Centers of Illinois. (Assigned nurse: Sally Ann)
The entire office is amazing. I can't stress how caring everyone is from the front desk staff, to the ultrasound tech, to Dr. Nani. Sally Ann always returned calls and communicated clearly. If I ever needed her she was there! We had a slight scare in the early stages and she made things happen to get me into the office.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
Strengths are their staff. The staff is knowledgeable, know there job very well, and have great bedside manner. For example, my veins are really hard to find. With fertility treatments, blood is always being taken. I never had a problem with blood retrieval. That was one additional item I did NOT have to worry about. Weaknesses are also some of their strengths. FCI has great office hours. I didn't want anyone at work knowing what I was doing. The early morning appointments were best for me. However, there are some procedures that have to be done in the afternoon. I wish I could have done those early too, but I understand.
Describe your experience with your monitoring appointments at Fertility Centers of Illinois.
I was very happy with the monitoring appointments. The appointments worked around my work schedule. The monitoring appointments are very well run. The technician knows exactly what she is doing due to her experience and doesn't hold you there for anything unnecessary.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jane Nani at Fertility Centers of Illinois.
We were very lucky to run everything through our insurance. We were able to work on the IUI treatments. When we switched over to the IVF procedure, I knew we had $10,000 left in insurance so that was our final shot.
Describe Jane Nani's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Fertility Centers of Illinois.
We transferred two embryos. Only one was successful. After the eggs had fertilized, the lab took a look at the quality and thought the two eggs were of good quality there was not a need for a third. Three is the max they would transfer to me. On our way to the transfer (3 day transfer), the office called and thought we could wait to do a 5 day. They allowed us to make the decision and we went with the 3 day transfer.
