Dr Nani did get more involved in our cycles once we started the IVF process versus the earlier pills & injectable cycles. During the early cycles she was more involved behind the scenes rather than in person. Dr Nani even made sure she did one of the transfers for us to help ease our minds that it wasn't working because of a dr error. FCI has a rotation of doctors who perform the retrievals and transfers so it was a comforting feeling to see her plan our cycle around when her rotation fell on the schedule.

How was your experience with Jane Nani?
Dr Nani was very optimistic about our outcome even when things looked like they should work and they didn't, she never lost hope. Having that reassurance was a great help when going through such a hopeless time. We were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Dr Nani did get more involved in our cycles once we started the IVF process versus the earlier pills & injectable cycles. During the early cycles she was more involved behind the scenes rather than in person. Dr Nani even made sure she did one of the transfers for us to help ease our minds that it wasn't working because of a dr error. FCI has a rotation of doctors who perform the retrievals and transfers so it was a comforting feeling to see her plan our cycle around when her rotation fell on the schedule. Dr Nani was always very friendly and helpful during everything!
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jane Nani?
Don't be afraid to ask questions and learn about your process. She will tell you everything she thinks you need to know but its a complex process and there will be things you don't know that having clarification on will help get you involved in your journey.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
Dr Nani took the time to always answer any questions myself of my husband had during the process. She didn't make us feel like any question was silly. She met with my husband and I after every IVF transfer regardless of the outcome.
Describe the protocols Jane Nani used in your cycles and their degree of success.
#1. The first cycle we did was a simple clomid cycle with timed intercourse. The result was negative. This was done because Dr Nani wanted to start off simple and see how my body responded to the medication. #2 - #3. We did two more additional clomid cycles due to insurance requirement of 3 clomid cycles before moving to a more progressive treatment of injectables. We did one timed interocurse and one IUI with these cycles. Both cycles ended with negative results. During these cycled Dr Nani begin to test my vitamin D and thyroid levels to ensure they were in the right ranges. They were not so we had to adjust with medication. #4. This cycle was an injectable cycle with IUI. Dr Nani felt this would help be a little more forceful of a cycle as it was possible the clomid was diminishing my egg quality. The result was negative. During this cycle we noticed my husband's sperm count was starting to drop and it was suggested we move onto IVF due to my increasing age and strong desire to get pregnant. #5. This was a fresh 5 day transfer IVF cycle. I was monitored to ensure I didn't encounter OHSS and I'm happy to say that I didn't encounter any post-op problems with over stimulation. I did produce 15 eggs and they were able to fertilize 7 with the ICSI process. All 7 made it to the 5 day stage (Grade A) and we decided to transfer just a single egg on our first transfer. #6. This was a FET cycle where we transferred two embryos. Dr Nani performed this transfer to ensure there were no problems doing the transfer. The result was negative. This cycle Dr Nani to recommend another saline ultrasound to verify everything looked good and do a blood check for natural killer cells. It resulted that my NK count was slightly elevated and my saline ultrasound came back perfect. #7. This was another FET cycle where we transfered two embryo's. Due to my higher NK cell count Dr Nani added an inter-lipids infusion prior to transfer to help decrease my NK cell count, which worked in decreasing my count to a safe level. The result of this cycle was a positive! We are currently expecting one little boy May 2016.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
The nursing staff at FCI - Lindenhurst was great! They have a passion for what they do and are always available to answer any question you may have. I was able to email the nurse my questions with a response by end of the day. By the time I got my positive pregnancy result I felt like the entire team was happy and excited for me. We had become very close with how frequently I had appointments. That friendliness helped ease the stress of the entire process. Upon graduation myself and the staff were in tears of joy and sadness to leave them. I really felt like we a team going through this journey.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
The clinic offered very early morning appointments starting at 6:30am which helped balance work and appointments. I didn't have to take any time off for regular monitoring appointments with the earliness of the appointments. The clinic was always very clean and I felt safe. There were times when I had to travel to other FCI clinics for monitoring appointments and all the FCI clinics had a very nice atmosphere.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jane Nani.
I work for a company in Wisconsin and live in Illinois so my insurance coverage was slightly different than if my company was from Illinois. The monitoring appointments typically cost around $200 with ultrasound and bloodwork. For the IVF cycles I was able to work with Dr Nani to ensure that the cost could stay within my lifetime maximum covered by my insurance. I think in total we spent $6,000 out of our pocket over the year of treatments for all the medications and appointments (including egg retrieval and three transfer cycles).

I only spoke with her [Dr. Nani] once. Our initial meeting was very rushed and both my husband and I felt like we didn't have a minute to think of any questions. She told us everything would be no problem and we would be pregnant in no time. She never set realistic expectations. I had no idea I'd never see her again, basically. I had no idea she wouldn't be doing my egg retrieval, but instead a random doctor on call. She never personally reached out after my retrieval. I had no idea if I was supposed to schedule a follow-up appointment.

How was your experience with Jane Nani?
Dr Nani reminds me very much of a surgeon. She is probably very skilled at her job but she is not a great communicator and doesn't show a lot of compassion for what her patients are going through. She provided very little information about what to expect and therefore my first cycle was extremely stressful.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jane Nani?
Be more clear about what to expect in general, from an experience standpoint. Set realistic expectations. Be clear that just because she is your doctor, that doesn't mean you will see her very often.
During treatment, did you feel like you were treated like a number or a human?
I only spoke with her once. Our initial meeting was very rushed and both my husband and I felt like we didn't have a minute to think of any questions. She told us everything would be no problem and we would be pregnant in no time. She never set realistic expectations. I had no idea I'd never see her again, basically. I had no idea she wouldn't be doing my egg retrieval, but instead a random doctor on call. She never personally reached out after my retrieval. I had no idea if I was supposed to schedule a follow-up appointment. Basically she just threw me onto the conveyer belt.
Describe your experience with your nurse.
My nurse was very nice but disorganized. She always seemed surprised when I had extra questions for her, however she definitely made the effort to stay on the phone with me to answer any questions I had. A couple of times I felt insecure about her but overall she proved to be my greatest source of information during my cycle.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
This clinic is very large and therefore personalized care is difficult to come by. If you're a hands-off kind of person, that may not bother you at all. For me, I expected more.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Jane Nani.
Fortunately most of it was covered by insurance. I had to pay $1500 for egg freezing, though.

Dr Nani was a very optimistic and charismatic Doctor. Throughout our treatments she was our biggest supporter. She always talked as if we getting pregnant was no big deal. This was extremely helpful with such an emotional process. She also treated you like a person. She knew the medical, but didn't talk over our heads. I am so happy my gynecologist recommended her to us.

How was your experience with Jane Nani?
Dr Nani is an extremely positive and personable Doctor. She is your biggest supporter in your treatments. I never felt that I would not be able to get pregnant. She knows her stuff and treats you like a person with feelings.
What one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Jane Nani?
Nothing, she covers everything. She makes it as pleasurable as she can. She will make you feel that getting pregnant is easy when that is not always the case.

Describe the protocols Jane Nani used in your cycles and their degree of success.
We started with pills which did not work due to my pcos. After the pills, we switched to injectables. The first round went well and we made it to an iui, but did not get pregnant. The next round of injectables I ended up with 8 eggs so we decided to cancel the iui. If we had insurance, we could had converted to ivf. We did another round of injectables and iui with no pregnancy. The last round we started with idea of converting to ivf of neede, as we went a little more aggressive with meds. We made it to an iui and we got pregnant!
Describe your experience with your nurse.
Sally Ann was a great nurse. She was easy to communicate with and was very thorough with instructions and results.
Describe your experience with Fertility Centers of Illinois.
I would say that there are no flaws to the clinic. They are easy to work with and respectful of the emotional process this is. The appointments are easy to get, they help you as much as possible financially, and are kind.

We were struggling in the beginning so we ended up taking a more aggressive approach with the idea that it would be turned into ivf if needed. It turned out to not be needed and we got pregnant. I am very happy with her approach....Dr. Nani is the kind of doctor I love. Her attitude was always that we would get pregnant. She was always very positive about everything we did. This helped us stay positive and believed that it would happen. She is a no nonsense doctor who tells it like it is. We loved her!
